donnie darko is profound when you're stoned. do it. [Oct. 26th, 2004|11:58 am]
unexpectedly smoked and watched donnie darko last night.  for some reason, this time, i found so many connections in the film.  the story gives subtle clues to the surrounding relationships and motivations that i hadn't realized before.  i really appreciated the film even more.  now i'm DD this weekend for sure. 

and... have a new cam.  i'll be posting lots of pics of random crap that looks interesting to me.  right now, i look pretty interesting with a big-ass frame.

That's the most minimal O_o I've ever seen anyone do.

It's been awhile since I've watched Donnie Darko. I should do that again and I'm almost always stoned.

can't wait to see a bunch of pics

my mind was mostly on the motivations of mrs farmer when she was trying to get rid of the Graham Green's story. earlier in the movie in Karen Pomeroy's (Drew Barrymore) class, Joni was publically put down and asked to move by Karen. Joni was a close friend (Sparkle Motion) to Beth Farmer, Kitty Farmer's daughter. So I'm guessing Joni get's Beth's mom to hate Karen and find a way to have her fired.

another thing i didn't get before... in the evil dead theater scene when donnie asks Frank what happened to his eye and Frank says "I'm so sorry", i think it's a double meaning. to the Donnie that hasn't shot him yet, it's just "i'm sorry my eye looks so gross". to the Donnie that's going to shoot him, he's apologizing for running over Gretchen, Donnie's gf.

and... i have to check again, but i'm pretty sure the "I'm NOT AFRAID" kid that wet his bed too long from the Attitudinal Beliefs video shows up again during Cherita Chen's performance to put feathers through a fan that's blowing onto stage.

there were several other things, but i'll have to watch again soon to remember.

I liked that movie the first time I saw it.. admittedly my sister and I had gone through quite a bit of wine before watching it (lol) among other drinks... she didn't seem to like it as much, though. afterwards she turned to me and said "what kind of a person could like that movie!?"
my reply: I dunno, maybe they can really relate to it
that lens is really big o.o

Looks expensive. Where did you get it? Did you get a good deal? Nice picture btw.

Re: Cool Camera!



just a fair price. i think real "deals" are rare unless you're a cute girl or if you're morally flexible. ; )

thank you oh nameless one.
