Birthday fun! Today is my birthday! It is only 3:30 in the afternoon but it is already so awesome! Yesterday, my super awesome hosts took me to have gyoza for lunch. It was so yummy! There were dozens of wild monkeys on the side of the road on our way to a modern style ryokan. We brought booze. The onsen and multi-course dinner were both really wonderful. I surprised myself by being totally unbothered using the public bath. Bodies are just bodies. After checking out, we went to a museum of a children’s book illustrator and got lunch at a bakery. Then we went to a bookstore and I treated myself. I will certainly buy many more books in days to come. Tonight we are making okonomiyaki, but for now we are chilling under the kotatsu waiting for the finale of True Detective to download.
awww earthy this all looks and sounds amazing! I’m sooo glad you’re having a great time! be sure to keep us updated,yes? :D <3
I am now 100% convinced that Good Omens Crowley is behind the posts-reblogging-as-links default function…
A. Because it’s just the sort of tiny annoyance that balloons into frustrated misanthropy that he would appreciate.
B. Because that joke I made about the Good Omens movie keeps getting reblogged from Neil Gaiman’s blog as a link, which cuts off at “
The Good Omens movie is announced. Neil Gaiman publicly states his approval with every aspect of the movie,” and I keep reading the tags on the post and seeing comments like “I SAW THIS AND HOUGHT THIS WAS GOING TO BE AN ACTUAL ANNOUNCEMENT OF THE MOVIE NOOOOO”, and maybe I’m just evil but I’m getting more amusement out of it than I got out of the joke to begin with.
That actually makes a disturbing amount of sense.
did we just use the masterball on a goldeen
as promised, a couple of thoughts about corionalus!
okay, as i said, the play was amazing, and one of the biggest reasons why was the enormous intensity with which all the actors played their parts (and even the silence when they weren’t in a scene). i can only imagine with horror what it must have been like to play this multiple times with the same unrelenting vigour and force (i also heard hiddleston rehearsed and played while having a cold AND being barraged by crazy fans every day so double kudos to him!). it was really quite amazing to see such strength put into every line and every action for a whole of almost 4 hours.
the stage and props themselves were minimalistic but not too much. they had painted the lower half of the back wall in bright red in a subtle nod to how early roman warmongering was being exerted through constant visual reminders. apart from that, the floor had red lines forming a kind of skewed square to portray the arena marcius moved in, political and military. the only other props used, to my memory, were chairs, several smaller things like a baskets and voter’s tickets, a stand and a ladder that was used in the siege of corioles. when actors weren’t in a scene but still had to play a part in the same act, they stood with their backs to the audience in the darker light background of the stage, which gave you a sense of a sort of ominous, foreboding tenseness.
what really made the play were the characters, of course. even if you didn’t know the play or had only minimal knowledge of it’s plot, somehow through the way the actors portrayed their characters, you got an immediate sense of how they stood in relation to the others without the need of them having to mention their social status or relationship. i absolutely loved gatiss as menenius and findley as volumnia, the latter who dominated large parts of the play in my opinion (for the better!). loved her obsession with her son’s ability to kill men and her delivery was flawless.
i thought the role of virgilia was a bit weak, both in script and in action, but that is subjective. because of the pace and the aforementioned intensity, there weren’t really a lot of other parts that didn’t work or fell flat. it’s like a miracle on it’s own, just the fact that everything in this production flows and manages to impress. it’s fast-paced and the actors’ charisma makes all of the jokes work in a kind of unusual way. something about the body language and facial expressions (especially from gatiss) just made you laugh out loud when they emphasized their zingers.
of course i have to mention hiddleston, too, even if it is kind of begrudgingly. there was a bit of obnoxious commentary in the interval feature where the director was asked why she cast him, immediately followed by the remark that it was because of his sex appeal, which i found annoying as fuck. personally, though i do find him to be highly aesthetically pleasing, i think every other person involved with the play would agree that it was really his, idk how to put this, aura and charisma that elevated the title role from amazing to mesmerizing and mindblowing. there is a glorious scene in the first or second act (i can’t remember) where hiddleston emerges from the backstage drenched in blood and he has a kind of bearing about him that just makes scenes like that work. idk how to explain it better OTL in another scene he says goodbye to his family and you know how normally, actors, especially male actors, only get to play the sexy cry? like, one single tear rolling down their cheek as they plot revenge or whatever? i think it added a lot that he actually cried on stage, with his nose and all (looked kinda like the one piece cry, which in my opinion is a big plus haha). my friend remarked it might have been because of his cold but i like to think otherwise.
all in all, truly an experience. if i had to rate it, i’d probably put it on par with frankenstein if not higher. if you have the chance to see it on dvd or in a cinema or wherever, go see it!!!
The longer I procrastinate on returning phone calls and emails, the more guilty I feel about it. The guilt I feel causes me to avoid the issue further, which only leads to more guilt and more procrastination. It gets to the point where I don’t email someone for fear of reminding them that they emailed me and thus giving them a reason to be disappointed in me.
Then the guilt from my ignored responsibilities grows so large that merely carrying it around with me feels like a huge responsibility. It takes up a sizable portion of my capacity, leaving me almost completely useless for anything other than consuming nachos and surfing the Internet like an attention-deficient squirrel on PCP."
