courier orientation was cool. just gotta wait and find out if they invite me to the hardcore hour long version after which I can start working right away. It won’t get me out of having to have a day job, but it would be so rad if I only had to cope with office politics PART TIME.
the conservative-looking woman who just moved her bunch of kids into the first floor apartment has surprised me unpleasantly by burning smudge sticks down there on what seems like a continuous basis. i really wanna go and ask if the previous tenants were a litter of sick cats or something, or if she’s just REALLY that afraid of evil spirits. oh my god wait i think there might be a reason why this bothers me so much.
What's the spookiest thing you've ever witnessed while living in NYC and did it qualify as a paranormal encounter?
i was in brooklyn, walking back from an outdoor screening of nosferatu with fucking kronos quartet of all things, and a big thunderstorm started. my friend and i had a bottle of wine sticking out of a satchel looking like a bagpipe. we kept refilling this stupid little cups, which was nonsense because they were constantly overflowing with rainwater. it was really dark out, but we both gasped when we walked past a playground and saw a motionless human form completely wrapped in black plastic, seated upright on park bench facing us. we just tiptoed past it. so it wasn’t supernatural — he probably wasn’t even dead — but it scared the shit out of both of us.
Hey. Just went through a bunch of your old posts because I started and couldn't stop. : ) But anyway. How'd you learn so much about movies and history? School? Or just a shit ton of reading and watching?
what a friendly message, thanks for checking out my backissues. i really don’t have any formal film education, and i don’t even particularly understand how they’re made or what a budget means unless it’s obscenely high or low. i just know what i like, i read a lot, and i’m compulsively attracted to audiovisual entertainment. it’s probably more important, though, that i’ve had a lot of hardcore completist friends.
