Lucky Number Slevin (2006)

Lucky Number Slevin (2006)

This was one weird movie. Weird, but awesome.

The plot: Slevin Kelevra (Josh Hartnett) gets caught up in an old rivalry; tale of revenge. Two mob bosses want a debt returned, yet one of them (Morgan Freeman) is willing to let the debt go if Slevin kills the other guy's son. The cops show up too, and a ghost, a Hitman, a real professional who goes by the name of Mr. Goodkat (Bruce WIllis). There's a girl involved too (Lucy Liu), and a lot of small-time thugs, and cops, and horses, and what a mess of a plot it is until you start figuring things out!

They leave you clues though. So pay attention to those clues! I didn't get a single one, but I did start figuring things out the first moment Slevin really turned cold. He's just a kid after all. A kid can't just turn cold like that. There must be something else, and the introduction fortunately stands apart enough from the rest of the movie to offer an alternative. He was just a kid, after all...

It's all filmed very stylishly, with as much a play on words and dialog as the play on the plot. It's classed as mystery, thriller, drama... maybe even a little action, but there's plenty of comedy too, and a romance that's so light and intimate it feels real. Refreshingly different; experimentally filmed thriller flick which is both unexpectedly complicated and ingeniously superficial at the same time. I liked it! It wasn't at all what I expected, but I was positively surprised. Great watch.

2015 In Review

Oh my, so much I've posted this year! I just went through it all. Just now. 835 posts. I skimmed, but it did take a while! Since everyone else is doing this kind of thing, I thought I'd post a little review of the most notable events documented on the blog this part!

So, what have I been up to these past 365 days? I started Project 2015, and have since then posted 365 pieces of leftover lyricism. I've kept up with weekly posts (just updated the tag archive here) all this time as well. My Internet was down at the start of the year, and I relied mostly on a crappy cellphone connection to do my daily does. Read more about that in the coincidentally most commented-on post of the year! It took a month to get our Internet back! And then...


Step By Step

Step By Step

I'll Regret Nothing

Writhe inside, I'm not obliged
I'll get by, get high on life
You're on a roll, inside my soul
I'll let you go, I'll let you go

You do not own, not but a bone
You have no power, no control
You're not my heart, you're not my mind
I'll leave you dark, I'll leave you blind

I'll let you go!
I'll let you go!
I'll let you free!
So you let me be!

I'll let you out!
I'll let you out!
So let me fear!
And let me doubt!

Within this state of apathy I feel, lonely,,,
Within this state of apathy I feel, homely?
I don't like your answer!! I don't like your tone!!
You tell me to keep lying: I yell a grueling NO!

I'd rather let a yell or cry, pass this petty biding by
I'd rather choke you till you die, until you take a step in line
You're but a speck in time, regret of mine
Like a flustered fly, a speck, a little buzzer

I'll swat you with all the courage I can muster. Buster!
You'd better run and hide.



Project 2016!

The New Year is here! And with it, my promised project of the year.

I pondered what to do for this year. I really pondered. I pondered and I pondered and my mind wandered.

I had a list of things I considered. Recipes. Pictures of my lunch. Poems. Lyrics, again? (Both new and old.) Recordings. Video recordings. Freestyles! Video freestyles? Flash uploads? (I have so many files still waiting to be added - more than enough to last 365 days.) Pictures. Photos. Artwork! Exercise goals!! One updated page of the site per day? Or how about a book, on which I'd write a small piece every day. The list goes on... well no, actually that's pretty much it. But I couldn't decide on any one of these many things, I didn't really feel like doing anything particular...

So I stopped pondering. I gave up. I went to bed. And today, I decided to draw a poem. It turned into more a drawing than a poem. Kind of pointless really. Artistic, maybe. Clever? Yeah! But without definite purpose.

And then it hit me: I'll do whatever I want this year! Whatever it takes for me to remain creative. One piece of creativity per day, for the rest of the year. That's the project.

So, let it climb! Draw your lines! Shun and wind! Let this diffuse wave of creativity build up and sweep away the decadent ideas that dwell in our minds! Give voice to the ideas that lurk deep down in your superficial soul! Open the cells of your cells in yourself and just: let it go.

Project 2016, is on the road.
