Summer Reading, Summer Viewing, Summer Crush
I finished "Johnny Got His Gun" by Dalton Trumbo yesterday (well, technically early this morning). I was inspired to read it by my Timothy Bottoms discovery. I can kind of spot where it's a propaganda piece, but I'm certainly sympathetic to its anti-war message.
I watched "The Virgin Suicides" the other day, too, a good moody mood piece. It's a good model of how high school feels to me now looking back.
And so...now I have a crush on Sofia Coppola! She's such a good director and she's so cute! She's on the market now, too! She divorced Spike Jonze. But then again, how do you top Spike Jonze? He made the video for "Sabotage"! You can't beat him for awesomeness. But maybe he was a jerk.
