You guys should really listen to this song. It's by Jack Johnson... and it's been on my playlist forever now... but I just listened to it and realized it's all about movies! He even mentions Eizenstein(sp?) and stuff. It's pretty cool and reminded me of out class. It's called Inaudible Melodies.

And for Megan and Spencer, I think you would like it the most, because it also mentions stuff from our philosophy class. It talks about the allegory of the cave.

anywho... catch you guys on the flip side

Current Mood: great

ok everyone...here's the deal: you can all come over to my house on monday say like 11 or noon or something and we can watch movies, hang out, talk, whatever until like 4:45  at which time my mom is making me not take work off so i'll be leaving for a&w...if you all want to come see me at the drive thru that's fine...but don't be obnoxious and order weird stuff or the cooks will jump out the window and stab you because they're nice like that. i'll call around tomorrow (sunday) to anyone who doesn't reply to this post by like 4 in the afternoon...see you soon hopefully!

hey people! so now that our film is finished as far as filming and editing its awesome to chill out in my basement and tell politically incorrect jokes and decide whether grand ledge could take waverly marching band in a gang fight....and yea we'd lose because simon has no chest hair. wow...but really i do love hanging out and being random and i'm actually gonna miss this class when its over in like a week. break a leg alex, sorry for smacking you up spencer but hey you deserve to be crucified, marisa you are inSANE and can definitely have orlando, and john its a good thing you didnt break my house lol lamp, boom, etc. and you really can color. thanks for being patient for my confessional scene, we could probably make a whole gag reel out of it. the point of this somewhat long and sentimental post is to (re)inform everyone of our plans to go out for lunch on wednesday anywhere we feel like and hang out as soon as we are finished editing and all that jazz.

Hey guys, as most of you know, I have a pool.

How would everyone be for getting together after class next Tuesday to swim, hang out, eat some pizza, and do whatever, just kind of chilling at my house.

Let me know what you guys think and if that day will work or not!

See you all in class, and remember, it always happens in Chinatown.

Paper Help
JSYK: Spark notes has a film section on their site discussing the movies we watch in class. It has motifs, themes, character analysis, and stuff like that. It's interesting to add it to the stuff from the actual class. Plus it's always good for homework.

Current Mood: working

ok guys! i get the whole paper movie thing so now i just have to write it....which is gonna be easier said than done...i think the motif is gonna be the covered windows, the cinematography is gonna be the half lit faces and looking through the windows and then the theme i guess is ignorance which is lame i know but i hate deciphering themes. what do you think and what are you writing about?

Another song idea.
Hey, so I tried to send all you guys an e-mail but I'm up north currently and I have to use my brother's laptop. The wireless isn't very reliable or fast, so it didn't work. So sorry, but you guys are going to have to check this song out on your own. If anybody has Kazzaa or Limewire or anything like that, I reccomend downloading it.

Battle Without Honor or Humanity
Tomoyasu Hotei

...also known as "Kill Bill Teaser" sometimes

(It's from Kill Bill)

PS sorry for the stupid user-name... it was (believe it or not) my nickname in 7th grade... when I made this journal.

okay, so this is the community through which we can discuss stuff for the film, as well as just hang out and talk.

i've gone through my itunes to look for good intro music for the movie, and i found a couple songs, which i'll send to you guys for some conferring. we can pick them up or not. i'm sure there's plenty of ways to spin this.

talk to you all soon.
