I see you behind the haze

American graffiti, 1973

As we became older we slowly started to age.

It was not perfect. It was marred by what to come. What was really perfect was all that before that night. The summers, the wine, the smoke, the smiles, the laughter, the kissing, crying and cursing. The love we shared and the idea of eternity. Death was nothing and life was the same. It is only when we think of life as something that dies we become mortal. Those who don’t think they will die live forever.

Movie Wednesday: The imaginarium of doctor Parnasuss

Lily Cole as Valentina, The imaginarium of doctor Parnasuss, 2009
Found here

I'm so excited about this movie! Lily Cole, Heath Ledger, Johnny Depp and Jude Law, all in the same movie. Incredible! The trailer is also out now and I really recommend seeing it, such a dreamy and wonderful world. You can see it here.

I still don't get why this is just shown on selected cinemas and not worldwide. Such a shame that some of us have to wait for the DVD to be out. Also the reviews overall hasn't been that great, but I'm sure I will enjoy this nontheless, did I mention Johnny Depp is in it?

Update: Sorry, just found out that The imaginarium of doctor Parnasuss is indeed distributed worlwide just at different dates. It is out in Norway the 4th of December and I'm sure the rest of the world will have premier dates long before that. I got confused because it has already premiered at some film festivals.

Comfortably numb

"It's like a card house you know," she says and folds her hands like a pyramid on the table to demonstrate. "Like that," she smiles while she thinks. "The whole house depends on each card and if one falls down," she puts her right hand down on the table, "the other falls too," her left hand follows the right. "But it's not like a card house can be built with only two cards, a life craves millions of cards. A life is hard to build that way. It takes time. And although it is so hard to build, it takes just a second to tear it down. Just like that," she slams her hands on the table making it shake like a tiny local earthquake. "But," and then she smiles one of her crooked smiles. "The cards are still there, although they are just a heap. So they can be built again and again. Do you want to know what the weird part is?"
I nod.
"When you build the house up again it will look just the same as the first time, just like the second time, third time and so on. Just the same. But it is not. It just appears to be the same but it is fundamentally different from the other times. The cards are stacked differently. A spades is where a heart was last time. A pair of diamonds holds up a pair of clubs when it should be the other way around. But still it looks the same. That's why most people don't know when people change and become something different. That's why people look the same but has grown to something else."

Movie Wednesday: The Royal Tenenbaums

Found on weheartit
Gwyneth Paltrow as Margot Helen Tenenbaum, The Royal Tenenbaums, 2001

One of the best black comedies. I think if you like Burn after reading you will like this one as well or the other way around. If you haven't watched either, watch both.

I have to admit though, that most of my love for this film boils down to one of the most fascinating characters ever written: Margot. She is amazingly weird and although her fashion sense is a bit eccentric she is no less of an inspiration to me.

And I'm very aware of the fact that it is technically not still Wednesday but I'll let you in on a secret: I count my days in when I wake up and when I go to sleep. It is very practical since I love being awake at night and asleep when everyone else rushes off to work.

I've deleted most of my archive for now because I wanted to snart a little new. I kept two posts though because I kind of like them. I also want to focus more on writing because I've been neglecting it far too much lately.

I also changed my username from Anywhere I lay my head to the same as my url: anywheredreams.
