Ouroboros Providence

I really do want to switch this back to journal mode, with actual words and everything. A month or a year from now I'm going to look back and regret not having recorded May and June. The conception of The Starkeeper, for example. Or thoughts on Jeff Nichols' brilliant Take Shelter (2011) and Midnight Special (2016). Or watching Mars from the floor of the front parlour. I'm afraid the whole photograph-a-day experiment/stopgap thing is leading me astray, away from the self discipline that has kept this blog alive since 2001, and I need to put my foot down.

But it's not going to happen today.

Maybe tomorrow.

TTFN,
Aunt Beast

Photographs are a form of journaling, IMHO, so I don't mind them at all. They are visual haikus, designed to capture a moment or sensation. Or cats hanging off furniture.

I absolutely loved Take Shelter. When I saw it a few years ago it was the best movie I had seen in a while. And it was my introduction to Michael Shannon, who is one of the best actors IMO. I still get excited when anyone mentions this movie.

Oh, I'm so glad.

Thanks for bringing it up. It really was very, very good.

You're welcome. In a year in which I thought the Hugos could be trusted to behave decently, I'd want it to win one.

Kodak moments.
They say a picture is worth a thousand words, but I don't know how a picture could express just the first part of this sentence. Maybe brevity is the trick.

It'd be nice to have you back though I liked the pictures.

I liked Take Shelter. I thought Michael Shannon was really good in it. I wrote in my blog at the time: "Michael Shannon stars as another high strung, creepy guy, this one named Curtis. Again, he's playing a guy who seems like he might shatter his teeth for the grinding at any moment. And Shannon does excel at this." I felt like the film took political issues like healthcare and climate change and tried to make them very personal for the audience. I thought it did a good job.
