What I'm Doing 20:
What I'm listening to:
Never Be Lonely by the Feeling. This is a particularly weird video - not as disturbing as their one for SEWN - and I don't think it quite works, although I like the sentiment, and having seen it don't think I shall see the tube (especially in the rush-hour) in the same way again.What I'm reading:
ADMIT ONE by Emmett James - an hilarious book which I am enjoying very much indeed. More on this later - including an interview, I hope.
Neither of us could remember why we got this, though Hodmandod Senior thinks it might be because the film track was composed by Philip Glass. Anyway, a good film, quite unusual - about a mysterious man who turns up on stage somewhere in the Holy Roman Empire of the nineteenth century. I loved the close-to-mythological flash back at the start and the way it developed into something close to Sherlock Homes fare. To me it seemed to be 'about' the power of myth.
Unfortunately, it was a film rented from Amazon and because it was slightly damaged, and kept stopping, we missed small parts. We have not had much luck with Amazon DVDs recently. The last one was cracked and unplayable, and the one before that was not the film we ordered. Of course it's great when it works, and most times it does, but irritating when it doesn't.
What I'm Doing Next:
Not quite sure. Everything I've started recently has snagged to a halt due to one reason or another - but the magnolia buds are unfurling in the garden outside my window, and the sun is shining - and just because of this I am, this morning, feeling unreasonably optimistic.
