H to the R

i think i'll carry on with the daily post, but do it on my own blog. it's a little lonely around here posting all by myself, so i might as well do it HERE. hopefully i can keep up the impetus.

summer in the south

today i missed the train by two inches. i could have reached out and felt the cold steel on my fingertips as it pulled from the station. i ran two blocks in a tube top and flip-flops and kept my iPod the whole way. so sad.

then, because the steel bridge is closed, i walked under it to the broadway bridge, up the stairs, down onto lovejoy and finally to work. truly, i am not complaining because i got to walk a while in the beautiful day, listen to music and smile at cute boys.

aaaah, summer.

(p.s. this is post number 27 for me. I've invited "myself" to be a contributor so that I don't have to log out of MY gmail in order to post here... yay! except now it links to my Renjitsu blog, but whatevs. <3 me!)

Defenestration of argot

...or throw the slang out the window.

It appears that we have lost one of our contributors. And I'm losing steam. But.. I must... carry...on.

Lately I've become disturbed by the quality of my vocabulary and grammar. Perhaps the books I've been reading aren't challenging my brain to pick up new words or more refined ways of speaking (Harry Potter...?) I usually end up assimilating types of speech when reading certain books. Beware when I've delved into Dickens. I forswear re-reading Stephen King's Dark Tower series. My gods, the shit I picked up from those tomes. Maybe I need to get into some critical theory, but phlpckack! How dry....

Okay, back to work.

Film screening tonight! Joy!

That's a wrap.

For our second wedding anniversary, Bill and I decided to help our friend Daniel with the 48 hour film project. Daniel and I attended the kickoff where we drew our genre and were assigned a prop and a line of dialogue. We got: Road Movie, Jumper Cables, and "Okay, I think I got it straight."

So. We made a movie. Bill and two of his friends did the music, I "produced" and a number of our friends were cast and crew. Whew.

It's awesome and I can't wait to see it on the big screen.

what good is sitting alone in your room?

some may not believe this, but i have never (until just now) seen Cabaret. the film. liza minelli is fa-bu-lous. completely. i love a good musical, but this movie kicked me in the pants. hard.

plus, Fosse? come on. his shit is right up my artistic alley. yeah, that sounds dirty.

life IS a cabaret,
