More editing on Cities That Eat Islands.
Rearanged our DVDS. Finally made the whole bay in auteur and the second bay will be broken down into genre. saw a lot of titles I don’t think we’ll want anymore. I’ll have to double check with Neen. Should have a good handful to Swap out in the future. Be nice to have things broken down into Slasher, Ghost, and Sci-Fi for when I’m in the mood for certain things.
Origin of Species isn’t going so well. Darwin is not a very good writer. I’ver read MUCH better science writing than this. He states too much and doesn’t engage the reader. Doesn’t take you through the learning process. I’m going to try to at least get a quarter done. If he doesn’t convince me then I’m going to put it to the side.
M got sick in school today so I had to pick her up this afternoon. Explosive diarrhea. Ruined two sets of clothes. Should have a fun time washing those this week end. If they’re salvageable. She’s just fine. Must have caught a germ on her class trip the other day. We’ll keep her home tomorrow just in case.
Watched Suddenly today. Still a great noir. As menacing and subtly sympathetic Sinatra. I still don’t buy him over powering the great Sterling Hayden. Visually, I mean. Yeah, he had to shoot him in the arm to keep him down in the movie. It reminds me of Michael Pare against Willem Defoe in Streets of Fire. Your opponents should be equal in size or at least have your bad guy larger. Unless you’re doing a cartoon like film. Like Batman or something. Hayden was such a bad ass in everything he did.
The argument for guns is still interesting and still inconclusive. Something they don’t do anymore today. I like that in my art. Another reason most current cinema doesn’t interest me.
