Reading is part of that, of course.
Here's to breaking some sort of record by either amount of books in 2011 or by level of quality.
Or both. ;D
Watching movies is for when my ADHD won't let me read quietly.
I need a seriously captivating something for me to focus, and how awesome some books and movies are, most of the time they won't even tempt me to concentrate fully.
The movie I watched Saturday night totally did though.
Le Fabuleux Destin d'Amélie Poulain.
Wow. What a fabulously lovely movie.
As schizophrenic and analytic as I can get, deeply philosophical and sometimes incredibly shallow. Amélie definitely reminded me of myself.
No. It wasn't just her dark eyes and hair. (Should I get it cut like hers?)
It was the fact that she's entirely nuts. But very intelligent.
She analyzes anything and everything, but doesn't care about moral issues if she tries to manipulate something for their own good.
+deep content sigh+ Most of all, after watching it, I just wanted to go to Paris and take lots of pictures. Not necessarily in that order.
It moved itself into myself and immediately into my top three best movies ever. :)
Sunday, Freeke, Judith and I watched Fantasia.
You know, the third Disney movie ever? 1940.
First experimental Disney movie ever? :3 That one.
There's no real story. Just visualizations on some of the world's most famous (classical) music of Bach, Vivaldi en Tchaikovsky -among others-.
I'd never seen it before, and people kept on judging it as boring.
So I'd made up my mind that I'd watch it anyways, boring or not.
But it was lovely. Very relaxing to watch. Very funny at points, touching at others.
Books. Movies. Songs. Music.
They just have to be really really good.
