A Blizzard and a Mountain.

2.13.2006

Contrary to popular belief (actually, no one has implied this), I'm not just sitting around watching movies all day. Except...for, well, yesterday because the wind was blowing 45 miles an hour and it snowed for 18 straight hours, and quite frankly I just didn't feel like going outside. Otherwise, I'm just averaging one movie a day, and no movies today because I think Netflix has caught on to the whole one movie a day thing.

I'm actually quite busy this week, which sort of makes me sad as this week is going to go by really fast and then it's back to 14 + hours a day / 7 days a week of school work starting next Monday. This week, I have to teach myself to use some design software, I have a few design projects (outside of school) that I'm working on, I have to nail down some things for the Invisible Children screenings, and I need to send out Christmas cards and DVD's to my family. Yes, I realize that it's February. Back off.

Actually, I did take some time today to do something that I've been wanting to do: I went to see Brokeback Mountain. In a nutshell (because I'm not so good at the writing, you see), I thought it was an incredibly beautiful and heartbreaking story. It's been awhile since I've been to a movie that sort of gutted me like that. I just didn't expect it.

I am so uncool. I haven't seen this yet. Maybe I'll just read the book. Afterall, I am one of those book people.

I met a girl this past weekend who's obsessed with movies and the Oscars, so she's trying to see them all, read the reviews, and every year she throws a huge Oscar party. She said that this one will win lots, although she doesn't think it should get best picture (her opinion). She did say it was a great story and had fabulous cinematography - is that how you spell that word? It's so long!

Anway, maybe will go see it...after I read the book.

I want to see this. I heard a bunch of negative stuff about it but then when I considered the source I realized I needed to see it for myself and decide. I really want to see it this weekend. Glad you liked it, I have a feeling I will too.
