Saturated (the ultimate cream)

cinderella man
Originally uploaded by symbiopsychotaxiplasm.

So when I saw CRASH,

and thought that this is the best mainstream film I've seen in a while and probably the best film of the year, or at least the summer. WRONG. Then I saw PALINDROMES

and was consumed with gratitude that filmmakers like Todd Solondz are still experimenting; and that was one of the best films of the year, and that was as far as my cinematic interest would peak for the summer. WRONG AGAIN. I just saw the sneak preview of CINDERELLA MAN

and I left the theater exhausted and weak. No, not because the film was ridiculously tedious, but because I felt as if I was being punched around in addition to having my heart experience one of the most tumultuous cinematic rollercoasters ever. I had to sit down and breathe for about ten minutes after I saw the film just to allow my popcorn heart to nestle itself back in its place. I didn't feel a physical relief with my graduation, but I think Ron Howard gave me that catharsis I had been needing.
It's the best movie ever! (sofar) and I was saturated, not only from creaming myself to the point of needing new pants, but my face was like a spounge from the tears. Thank God for Ron Howard! But who knows, I might be singing a different tune after I see the much anticipated EROS,

which just came to my local theater.

ephemeral immutability

Originally uploaded by symbiopsychotaxiplasm.

as a young American, my emotions are everywhere and somewhat transient, but before I abscond to NYC, I'm thinking I should tame that constant changing of moods. It's probably because I have been reared around middle-aged woman and the rhythm of menapausal mood-swings rubbed off. I'm going to have to practice mind over matter. ::"Beside You In Time" by Nine Inch Nails:: Click here to watch

remember when I made 14:59 and I felt like crap because I felt rejected for not being part of a film that I really wanted to? well I feel like it's being rubbed in my face every day I'm at that media studio and being the obsessive film geek I am, I am actually experiencing physical pain every time I'm reminded I have not attained the goal I wanted so much for too long. ::"Right Where It Belongs" by Nine Inch Nails:: Click here to watch

sobrino (nephew)

Originally uploaded by symbiopsychotaxiplasm.

I was staying with my sister for a while and I couldn't help filming my adorable nephew, Tate (whom I've nicknamed "little man tate"). And because I'm going to be leaving for college soon, I won't be seeing him as much I'd like to, so I made this video as sort of a love letter for my hopes para mi sobrino (for my nephew).
