I’m seriously considering starting one of these. I kind of like the idea that it’s something that I actually have to commit to every day. And it’s fairly simple on top of that. I’m not too sure that my pictures would be anything of interest, but again, soley for my own enjoyment I suppose. Hmm, maybe I will start on June 1st?
“I don’t believe in anything, But I also don’t believe in nothing. I mean, sometimes I just think it’s eternal blackness, and sometimes I think if there is an afterlife it’s an afterlife of your own devising, your last thought, whatever that might be, going on forever. I guess I believe in the great big in-between, nothing as part and parcel of something else. But in general, I’m pretty confused about everything.”—
Billy Schine from the novel The Normals- by David Gilbert
I FINALLY finished this book that I have been reading forever. It was extremely beautiful writing throughout the whole story, and I loved every page of it, but for some reason I just could not finish it. David Gilbert’s writing is fantastic and the story was compelling but then the end just ended. Not really a conclusion but still a pretty decent book.
Now that I’m back on track with my reading (hopefully), I’m going to be doing a lot of it. Like I’ve said before, I have about 40 non-read books waiting for me and I’m sure I’ll buy more before I can even make a dent in those. I’m going to start doing a “What I’m Reading” segment from now on so look for it.

“LOST is more than just a show; it’s an experience, and to get the most out of it, it requires repeated viewing and some extra reading, whether it be Lostpedia, Doc Jensen’s wild theories or one of the books Sawyer was seen reading on the beach. Most television shows are as simple as the viewer tuning in when the show starts, watching the episode until the credits roll, and then immediately moving on to something else. That is no way to watch LOST. Think of the show as an onion: its exterior consists of all the mysteries of the show, like the hatches and the numbers and Jacob’s cabin and Jacob’s list and Jacob himself and the smoke monster and the frozen donkey wheel and the time flashes that make the island skip like a broken record and the four-toed statue and the seemingly ageless Richard Alpert and room 23 and so on. It’s easy to be distracted by all of those things, many of which are firmly rooted in science fiction, but peel that onion and you’ll find some of the most basic human struggles like good vs. evil, free will vs. destiny, faith vs. science, life and death, survival, rivalries, redemption, and how all the best cowboys have daddy issues. These are things we can all relate to, and once that onion is peeled, you’re probably going to find yourself crying. LOST is more than just a show, it’s the greatest television experience the world will ever see.”—To borrow an episode title from the show, Crit is the man behind the curtain of fuckyeahlost.com.

“Girls are taught a lot of stuff growing up. If a guy punches you he likes you. Never try to trim your own bangs and someday you will meet a wonderful guy and get your very own happy ending. Every movie we see, Every story we’re told implores us to wait for it, the third act twist, the unexpected declaration of love, the exception to the rule. But sometimes we’re so focused on finding our happy ending we don’t learn how to read the signs. How to tell from the ones who want us and the ones who don’t, the ones who will stay and the ones who will leave. And maybe a happy ending doesn’t include a guy, maybe… it’s you, on your own, picking up the pieces and starting over, freeing yourself up for something better in the future. Maybe the happy ending is… just… moving on. Or maybe the happy ending is this, knowing after all the unreturned phone calls, broken-hearts, through the blunders and misread signals, through all the pain and embarrassment you never gave up hope.”—He’s Just Not That Into You (via thiswillpass)
“You kill your film several times, mostly by talking about it. A film is a dream. You kill it writing it down, you kill it with a camera; the film might come to life for a moment or two when your actors breathe life back into it - but then it dies again, buried in film cans. Mysteriously, sometimes, in the editing room, a miracle happens when you place one image next to another so that when, finally, an audience sits in the dark, if you’re lucky — very lucky - and sometimes I’ve been lucky - the dream flickers back to life again.”—Daniel Day-Lewis as Guido Contini in the movie “Nine”
