I herd cats for a living (aka: I'm a Hollywood assistant.)
More importantly, though,
I'm a screenwriter with an addiction to movies, art, politics, books, travel, laughter, music, and delicious beverages.
90% of my posts are related to movies. I keep track of the new ones I watch over the course of the year and write my pithy immediate reactions to them. The rest are things I admire, like, find pretty, make me laugh, or inspire me.
Ooo I forgot to mention that I finally got Howl’s Moving Castle on DVD for Christmas! I now own my top 5 favorite movies, which gives me an odd feeling of pride and accomplishment. I’ve been nagging for this one for so long and I don’t know what DVD to start lobbying for next. That’s probably a good thing though considering I’m broke.
Oh no! The DVD of “Alice” my sister sent me for by birthday won’t play in my Macbook! It makes some horrible noises and then spits the disc out. :( (!!!!!) I’m going to test it in my roommate’s Macbook when she gets back and my friend’s Playstation, but I’m wondering if it’s just a bad disc. I hope not! I really wanted to watch it in legit high quality. :(
The newest addition to my DVD collection and one of my favorite movies ever. I love the way everything comes full circle (I am ticked that the screenplay didn’t garner the attention of the Academy) and the performances are wonderful. The best thing is to just watch what Bang Bang is doing in the background of all the scenes. So. Wonderful.
