I felt pretty gross two or so hours, when waking up from a nap, starving, I walked to the Chinese place and the video store and realized it was the first time all day that I had done any movement, the first time I had left the house all day. I am going to try to fix that tomorrow. I just watched Greg Araki's The Doom Generation and really enjoyed it, its ninetiesness. I was really uncomfortable during that last violent scene and felt a bit guilty that I didn't flinch during the earlier violent scenes, the only one that made me upset was one in which one of the main characters, a person whom I had come to see as a person, was the victim of violence, when everyone else was just as equally human throughout the movie - I just failed to recognize that.

The soundtrack might have also been one of the things helping the movie. I really need to scour some used CD stores to see if I can find it, or you know, not be so lazy, and just download the songs.

Other movies I have seen in the past week:
Gregory's Girl, The Brown Bunny, and Paris is Burning. The first one was cute and not much else. The second one was awful in too many ways. The third one, I want all of you to watch. It is a terribly good documentary that affected me so much.
