i love my world.



i made the video about this morning of meiko. this actually kills two birds with one stone since nancy wanted to see the drawbridge and i wanted some audio documentation of meiko's cute little mews. the first couple are me trying to coax her into it (she was chatty but got a bit camera shy). we typically mew back and forth on weekend mornings when i hear her bound up the spiral staircase to try to gain access into the fortress that is upstairs.

i clearly fucked up my sleep schedule this weekend. too many naps, late bedtimes, crazy food, random ideas popping into my ideas at all times, movies, whatever. i am not sleepee in the slightest, but i am going to force myself to go to bed in a minute.

this past week, i saw two more movies that i want to pop into my top films of 2006 list, so i'll be posting that soon. pan's labyrinth last week and children of men today. everyone should see children of men. i kind of feel like someone should strap the prez down and make him watch that movie like alex delarge in a clockwork orange. walking outside and being slightly sweaty when it should be snowing outside...it just made the film hit home even harder. we have fucked up our world. i feel like punching anyone who thinks this film is some sort of bizarro "could never happen" sci-fi movie. this could be the future and we are totally on our way there. if things don't actually change soon, this is what we are heading towards. i had to cover my mouth to not bawl out loud twice. it's important and impactful and i feel the same way about this film that i do about an inconvenient truth.

let's pause the ranty-leigh. things have been extremely good in my life lately, but i'm feeling the fat. i need to come up with a gameplan and stick to it. otherwise, i am part of "team: best boo" and i have been consuming media like there is no tomorrow (and there may barely be). lately i've seen a plethora of films, read a stack of books, kept up with the lj friend list, and i've hung out with people who i love so much it makes my sides split open. i laugh a lot. i love a lot. anyone who knows me knows that i love to laugh. this year has had a great start for me and mine.

BOOKS: after finishing the HDM series on my plane home for christmas, i read love is a mixtape (heartbreaking true story and the type of book that kids like us adore), then ask again later (this book sucked), and i am reading alternadad by neal pollack, which is great. i haven't been doing much creating myself since the renegade craft fair holiday show, so i am going to get back on the creative ball soon. in general, i feel like my creativity is not put to as much use as it should be. but now is not when i should be pondering this. now is when i try to make sleep happen. i wish i could just rub my eyes with my fingertips to create sleep, like i'd rub two sticks together to create fire.

She's such a cutie! She looks very soft.

Is the drawbridge there so she doesn't bug you in your sleep?

she is very soft but she can be a little bitch! yeah, the drawbridge is so that her hair doesn't get upstairs and irritate zachary and i. downstairs is almost unbearable for him, but i can take it most of the time.

so the biggest questions from me are how was pan's labrynth overall? well done or meh? comparable to the movie Mirror Mask (if you've seen it)?
AND Children of Men I've heard is so worth seeing but I wanted to know if you think it's one of those must sees any time or don't see when you're down or in a great mood etc. strange questions I know but still would like answered! thanks!

pan's labyrinth was great, but totally not what i was expecting (i didn't read anything much it and had only seen a preview). mirror mask was also awesome. apparently i've turned into a huge fantasy nerd without even knowing it!

if you're already depressed, children of men may not be the movie you want to see, but in the end, there's hope, so it really won't wreck your day. it's really the most must see movie i've seen in ages.

OMG CUTEST FLUFFBALL EVAR

(excluding my cat, of course, but she doesn't have a drawbridge so it's a tough call!)

this may or may not make you feel better about that book, but rob sheffield just got re-married last week, to a girl i used to date. srsly. i can't wait to read his book - unfortunately, i moved to charlottesville right after his wife died, so i was never able to meet her, but i am honored to have his old radio show time slot on wtju.
