A bunch of links I've been saving for the past few months. Maybe I should do this monthly, they do pile up.

Articles
Short Films
Short Stories
Random:

  • They used "The Killing Moon" by Echo and the Bunnymen in Donnie Darkos theatrical cut, but "Never Tear Us Apart" by INXS in the directors one. They are both georgous songs, but I think "TKM" works better. Also, I probably wouldn't have heard any Echo songs for years if it hadn't been for that movie. Whereas, my mom and sister are big INXS fans, so I would have heard "NTUA" at some point.

  • An Antiques Roadshow appraisal of Ray Bradbury books.

  • Another one for Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? I didn't like that book too much, but this was sweet.

Old Shit

It's so uncomfortable seeing people from the past. I recently ran into the grandmother of an ex-best friend (K). She had raised K, and I thought she was Ks mother for a long time. Anyway, I was freaking out inside, but tried to be polite. She had her great grandchild with her. Not Ks kid, but her sisters. K has a baby.

Ks grandma made me give her my number, I was so happy they never called. I'm not on Facebook for a reason. When relationships die out, they should just stay that way. Especially grade school one. It's unhealthy to be connected with people you played with in kindergarten. At least for me, I have no interest in them.

In grade 7, K and I got matching sweatshirts. We even named them. Dark grey sweaters with a dagger/dragon/skull design. Studs on the hood. We thought they were so cool. The other kids probably made fun of us. I still have mine and it's too big on me. It must have swallowed eleven year old me right up.

I've been considering donating it, along with a jewellry box K gave me for my birthday once. The jewellry box is cute, but I have better ones. The sweater is ugly, but I still have a hard time parting with it. I wear it around the house when my better sweaters/cardigans/robes are unavailable. Like right now.

Instead of thinking about K when I wear it, I want to think about my other associations with it. Like Apollo our cat sleeping in it while I wear it. He looks like a very odd baby bump. He's been sick lately, but is getting better. I thought he was dying a week ago a cried like crazy. He's fine now.

I dunno, I'll probably get rid of it at some point. Maybe after I wash it next. It's an ugly sweatshirt and isn't very warm. It's from fucking Wal-Mart. Fuck this nostalgia shit.

Also, I have loved every version of this song that I have heard so far.
