Dean: Well, I gotta ask, how old are you?
Death: As old as God. Maybe older. Neither of us can remember anymore. Life, death, chicken, egg... Regardless, at the end, I'll reap him too.
Dean: God? You'll reap God?
Death: Oh, yes. God will die too, Dean.

First film review - Terry Gilliam's Brazil →
I thought the first review on my film review blog would be Hitchcock’s The Trouble With Harry. I did write most of it but then I got distracted by some other stuff that needed to be done, so it’s not really finished yet. Yesterday evening I saw Terry Gilliam’s Brazil, an absolutely brilliant 1984-esque film, and I decided to review that one instead. It cost me another migraine,...

I’m reading a text and making an assignment two days in advance. AND I’m making notes while reading. It’s unbe-freaking-lievable.

The Art of Film →
I just started a film review blog over at presenceoflimitations.tumblr.com! The first one on there is probably going to be Hitchcock’s The Trouble With Harry, which I saw yesterday. I might also write some more elaborate reviews of the films I posted here. Once I’ve caught up on past films, I’ll just use it as a sort of film diary, in the form of reviews. Fun for me, but...
Frasier: You are twenty minutes late!
Frasier: 'Sorry'? This is your group. I've been making small talk with these people for the last twenty minutes. Do you know what small talk is like for people who have a problem communicating? It's tiny talk!
Niles: It's love, then.
Frasier: Oh, I don't know about 'love'. We've only been seeing each other for a month.
Niles: But you could see yourself falling in love with her?
Niles: Sometime down the line.
Frasier: Yes, yes, perhaps.
Niles: Well, no wonder you're heartbroken. You've just lost the only woman you could even possibly, sometime down the line, perhaps fall in love with. I'm surprised the country music people haven't jumped all over this one.
