I’ve owned the movie Magnolia for years, but haven’t actually watched it since it was out in theaters — when I was working at a movie theater in Illinois.
It’s the kind of movie where we had to schedule extra time between screenings (compared to the usual 20-30 minutes) because people would just stand around in the auditorium after the movie ended and talk to each other (strangers or not) about what they had just witnessed. I’d often join in the conversations as I cleaned up the theater for the next show.
Well, that is, the people who stuck it out until the end would stay behind to talk. I knew to be standing outside the auditorium about 25 minutes into the film to hand out readmission passes to people who walked out on it when Tom Cruise starts his seminar. We were right next to an assisted living facility and had older clientele who didn’t appreciate his character (and his character, as I recall, was a bit of an ass as far as us non-old folks were concerned as well).
I had forgotten, though, just how stressful the movie can be. Maybe there’s a reason that I haven’t watched it in about 15 years.
Six is amazing!
I’ve had a few people tell me that. I was this close to playing VI next instead of I.
But I decided I’d build up to it instead of playing it first and risking the other games being letdowns by comparison.

Feminism has fought no wars. It has killed no opponents. It has set up no concentration camps, starved no enemies, practised no cruelties.
Its battles have been for education, for the vote, for better working conditions…for safety on the streets…for child care, for social welfare…for rape crisis centres, women’s refuges, reforms in the law.
If someone says, “Oh, I’m not a feminist,” I ask, “Why, what’s your problem?” — Dale Spencer (via lullabysounds)

People look down on McDonald’s employees but fail to realize that if all these folks left McDonald’s and pursued “better careers” your ass wouldn’t be able to get a McDouble with an Oreo McFlurry at 3am.
You can’t demand a service while simultaneously degrading those who provide it for you.
It’s the same for any service job, really.
Customer service, blue-collar, and teaching jobs often suck because the consumers and society in general treat the people who do them like shit.
But if we didn’t have people doing those jobs, life would suck.
We need to start appreciating these people. Pay them more, give them better benefits.

I hope this will be a way to find new movies, or at least find out what other people like. Here’s the deal - If you’re tagged in the post, list your top 5 movies and tag 5 people. Not the 5 best movies, and not the 5 movies that make you sound good, but the 5 movies that if you were stuck on a deserted island you’d watch over and over again. My list (links are to the theatrical trailers of the film):
Tags (I’m actually going to tag people for once): the-beautiful-briny | tronjavolt-a | shannashedevil | ibingeonbonbons | butchrosser
(he is being kind of a dick about it though so I can’t say I’m sad that he lost)
This guy on The Bachelorette reminds me of myself. Which I’m pretty sure means he’s gonna lose.
I knew it
As soon as the Bachelorette told this guy that he needed to just turn his brain off once in a while and he couldn’t do it (even though he said he shuts it off he was totally just saying that while his brain continued to work overtime to show him all the ways he was going to fuck things up), I knew he was doomed.
Because my brain is always doing the same thing, and it’s a self-fulfilling prophecy.
And yet just like him, I’m powerless to actually turn those thoughts off. The consume my waking thoughts, and even permeate my dreams. It’s 24-7 fear of failure combined with actual real-life failure after failure to back it up.
My parents always tease me and say that they’re going to sign me up for the show (well, by “always” I mean two or three times per season). But if I went on the show, I’d be one of the guys eliminated in episode 1. That’s just the way things work when you’re me.
Anyway, I’m gonna hit the sack. I’ve been up since 5:00 yesterday evening and I was getting tired before all this introspection.
Time to take a break from being a real-life failure and go be a failure in my dreams for a while.
Yooo I’m watching it too. Which one are you talking about?
Nick. The whole “you’ve got to shut your brain off” thing was very familiar.
He said he does, but he doesn’t. At least not from what I’ve seen.
