Toilet Porn Go!

Bad parts of today:

  • Finding myself sitting in the cinema – accompanied by my mother, natch – among dozens of mother-child combinations, most of whom were either loud or constantly checking their phones (to ensure that time hadn’t suddenly just evaporated while they weren’t looking, presumably), and realising that I was likely the creepiest guy in the theatre.
  • Finally getting that a good, long relationship’s strength relies on being able to put up with each others’ petty bullshit. It was kind of depressing.
  • Reading about Tony Scott’s suicide. True Romance was very much a formative film for my teenage self, encapsulating the kind of rebellious ideals that are like crack to a 15 year-old.

Good parts of today:

  • I saw Brave, which is Pixar completely back on form and delivering yet another hilarious, emotionally moving story while subverting genre tropes with aplomb.
  • And I noticed an older guy sitting in the far back corner of the cinema, so I definitely wasn’t the creepiest guy in there.
  • Watched Dog Day Afternoon –  written by Cool Hand Luke scribe Frank Pierson, who passed away last month – for the first time. It’s now potentially in my top ten, and if you haven’t see it do yourself a favour, because it’s easily the best ‘bank heist gone wrong’ flick I’ve ever seen. Come to think of it, ‘bank heist that goes off without a hitch’ sounds pretty bloody boring.
  • Ordered a new netbook, which I’ll be getting tomorrow so I can resume surfing porn conveniently on the loo.

Huzzah!
