I don't know about you but I need to have background noise. Sometimes I will put on music but mostly I just pop a movie into the DVD player while working on whatever project I have at the time. Of course many times this backfires and I end up stopping and watching the DVD. Last weekend I rented "Mad Men".
I don't have cable and I thought I might enjoy it, especially since I love Mid-Century Modern decor. I must admit that at first I was so annoyed that I almost had to stop the DVD. It was very hard to watch women being treated as second class. I have a lot to say on the subject but I won't. I don't want to waste my energy on it. SO.....today I am going to watch -
WHERE THE WILD THINGS ARE.
I might regret it. My niece has warned me that it is sad.
I have a hard time watching movies made for children. They tend to rip my heart out.
I was haunted for DAYS after I watched NARNIA.
I know, I know. I realize what it represented but still,that LION...
I can't think about it.
And then there's the movie that I have been FORBIDDEN to watch by my sister and my nieces.
Have you seen it? They say that I could NOT handle it.
So I am assuming it has something to do with an animal and obviously there's that old man.
Yep, animals and old people get to me....and little kids being hurt, abused or ignored.
So that's how I will be spending the weekend. Watching DVD's while I reclaim my spare room and make it into my art/project area.
and if WHERE THE WILD THINGS ARE gets to me too bad, I will watch some Horror Flick, Gangster Movie or Slasher Film to wash the first from my mind. Those don't bother me.
Instead I just think about how stupid the person was to go into the house, alley, whatever.
Have a GOOD WEEKEND!
