Must I Dream And Always See Your Face?

So the first time I watched Donnie Darko was 2 years ago, and after seeing it, I remember going back to my room, sitting on my bed for 10 minutes going, "What the fuck was that?", but I loved it. I bought it a month ago, and watched it again, and I was excited to because it had been awhile. The second time, it didn't impress me as much, but still, it fucked with my head. Then tonight, Carly wanted to watch it, so I watched it with her. This time I'm just as confused at the first time. I think I understand it, but then I try to explain it outloud and it makes no sense. I think I figured it out, but then theres other things I don't understand. If you haven't seen it, maybe you shouldn't read the rest of this, FYI. Like the part of the plane that falls on Donnie's house. Was that from the plane that the mom and Sam were on? And was it stuck in the portal until it fell on the house? Did he go back in time just to save Gretchen? Did he see the future, and that's why Frank the Bunny was following him, because Donnie knew he was going to kill Gretchen? I don't get it. Someone help me out here.

Ok, enough of that, I can't think about it anymore or my brian will explode. Last note - I really like the ending song, I looked it up on Kazaa and it's called Mad World, by Gary Jules. So download it, or whine about how you can't download songs.

Tomorrow is Sister Weekend, finally. This goddamn week has gone by so slow. I had a test today in Anthrolpology, the same class that I have a test in on the day I'm supposed to leave to go skiing. I asked my professor after the test if I could take the test early, and he said sure. Sweetass, now I get to go skiing. That's coming up soon too, February 24th. There better still be some snow up there, because our's is finally melting here. I'm sure their will be though, I'll be in the Upper Penninsula of Michigan near Canada. I'm guessing it isn't a balmy 70 degrees up there quite yet.

I went to the library last night and got out three books, so it's going to take me even longer now to finish Dylan. I got Breakfast of Champions by Kurt Vonnegut, The Shipping News by Annie Proloux and Speaking With the Angel by Nick Hornby. I started reading Hornby first; it's a collection of short stories by famous English authors. I've always wanted to read About a Boy or High Fidelity by him, but the Angel one was the only one they had. And Cat's Cradle is still missing from the library here, so I think I'll just have to wait on that one until the summer, but I'll let you know how Breakfast is, Bill.

This post is tres boring, and I apologize. I'm not feeling the blogging tonight. I'll have about four days away from it though, so I'll be back in full force on Monday. Have a wonderful weekend, I know I will be. Try your best not to be jealous.

There is nothing better than taking a shower, and then going to sleep in clean sheets. I dare you to disagree with me, bitches.

Peppermint Patty said...

btw i'm more jealous of you seeing bob dylan (again) than a main street hooker watching a french whore give a blowjob.

i don't think i ever told you that yet...

what the fucking shit is the big deal about donnie darko? all the emo/cafe rocker kids and trendy bitches with betty page haircuts and weezer glasses jizz themselves about this movie. I have yet to see it and refuse to see it simply based on that fact. its like the ring, it can't be as good as the hype. everyone was like, oh man the ring is scary, oh man you'll be so afraid. I was like eazy muthafuckin E after seeing it, I was like, BBBBBBBBBITCH!!! so with donnie darko, much like requiem for a dream, I shall sit back and scoff. I mean, you want a real mindfuck, read "Chaos" by james gleick.

even napoleon dynamite didn't live up to its complete hype. nothing ever does. but I did find it fucking hilarious, not as funny as harold and kumar go to white castle, but up there.

I also didn't find what Donnie Darko was so confusing about. Just watch it and then if you don't get it listen to the commentary on the DVD. I figured most of the movie out but a few odds and ends and they pretty much covered them in the deleted scenes and commentary. Actually if you see the deleted scenes there is no question to the movie whatsoever. I didn't like it much though, the actors sucked ass.
As for books I picked up Pompeii by Robert Harris (author of the Red Dragon, Hannibal series) in lieu of the Pompeii hype going around. I think next I'm going to start reading some old school dark poetry like Dante to change paces. Hope you have excellent sister time and don't you two go crazy.

harold and kumar left me with the damnedest craving for white castle for weeks. made me wish i still lived in chicago, i used to max out on that shit all the time (granted i also had the mad munchies). it's the worst food you could possibly feed yourself but when you want it, you gotta have it.

what you crave, indeed.

Screw this shit! I say we get married. We will sit and listen to records all day. Except no Bob dylan cause my dad killed that shit for me. But we could sing along to Jeff Buckley and smoke lots of cigarettes. Sound good? Just thought I would throw that out there. Im going to watch the Super Bowl and get tossed....

Jenn said...

I think you should marry Gabe too. He needs a down mama to put him in check!

Dude, how come I didn't comment on this post? I know I was the first to read it 'cause you told me when you had finished. I'm so burnt these days.

I haven't seen Donnie Darko, I have seen Napolean Dynamite, so go ahead and yell at me. I can't rent movies 'cause I manage to take movies back two weeks after the date I should have returned them. I don't go to theaters 'cause I need a sitter and if I get a sitter I'm gonna sit on my ass at home and read or go get crunked. There's just no winning here. Maybe when I get a boyfriend I'll watch all these great you movies you mention. I wanna see Donnie Darko so I can be as confused as you. As for Napolean, I'm not much for the stupid comedies. I have to be in a mood. Yeah, yeah, yell at me. I don't care damnit.

PS I'm really liking The Poisonwood Bible.
