Its been a while since my last post. In that time I have been through a film and a book as well as a two day headache, perhaps processing these.
Watched Inception at the Ritzy in Brixton, which is apparently the new place to hang out for the Bourgeoisie; seriously. A man with the world’s longest neck sat in front of me so I threw a real strop until I was able to move seats. The film was one of those that keeps you up all night wondering about what the ending means and imagining the sort of person who could come up with that sort of genius (I hear it was ten years in the making).
Read ‘Girlfriend in a Coma’ by Douglas Coupland, which was pretty thought provoking as well. One thing I thought about over and over was the idea that everyone should have at least one ‘Great Event’ in their lives. This does not necessarily mean it should be a happy or fantastic one, but something that changes the way you look at the world, almost demolishing the world as you know it and re-building it in Technicolour.
