Autumn Chill

It’s not September, yet.



Hints of Autumn

August 27, 2009

I woke up this morning, and got ready for work. My parents were already out, and I struggled to up on my own. I did my morning routine all by myself – getting breakfast ready, getting changed, locking the doors, etc. I step outside. It’s cool. I can sense autumn in the air. And I’m…happy.

I drive to work with the windows down. I forget what I listened to, but it doesn’t matter right now. I got to work. And I’m…sad.

I tell a co-worker how much I love fall. Sweater weather – I look good in sweaters. I’m an asshole to my girlfriend – but I look good in sweaters :).

I tell another co-worker the same. She agrees, and talks about apple picking and pumpkins growing and all that fun stuff. She deduces it’s cause her and I have autumnal birthdays. I kinda doubt it – I like spring much more than fall. But, I’m happy.

I sit outside on all my breaks. It’s comfortable. I go out later with my girlfriend, it’s a nice day to drive around with the windows down. It’s still comfortable, at 8pm. We go to a park and do our own thing. But it was nice.

Autumn’s coming. Winter’s coming. I’m gonna be 25 very soon (26 days, actually!). I haven’t moved out from my parents house since graduating college. But I can bare it for now. Autumn’s coming. It’s nice.

Animal Collective, Again

August 23, 2009

Sometimes, I imagine I can make music. And well, I can make music, but I don’t know if I can make good music.

Sometimes I overthink things. Am I doing one thing cause it’s what my surroundings made me interested in? Or am I doing it because I really want to do it? I’ve always wanted to be a movie director. Some times I wanna be a writer. Other times I wanna make music.

Recently, upon finding out Animal Collective’s underrated (by me even!) Song Tungs album was recorded in only a few weeks (according to all music guide), I’ve wondered if I should make an AC influenced album, before I turn 25. You know, instead of the album I want to make.

But then I think I’m lazy. And then I think about my friends, and blame them cause they take up all my time.

Which is funny, cause if I made a short film with them, would they be taking up all my time?

Although, I know what is really taking up all of my time…

Look away, look away.

This is respectable street!

Just like honey…

Oh I like a walk

Moon. Not, don’t show me that!

So, I finally went and saw it. It’s a pretty good movie. The trailer, however, doesn’t quite do it justice. Nor does all the hype.

While the trailer looks more like a man going crazy on the moon, which is a nice starting point of the movie, there is much more than that. It basically makes you ponder your existence, which isn’t always a good thing for movies to do.

Who am I, and what can I show you that I have specifically done? Where am I, and where do I belong in this world? What should I do, and what can I do, in this world?

These are the major themes of the movie. We see a man and a possible double on the screen. We see them, a few million miles from earth. And we see them decide together to try and make their home a better place.

It starts off with a sci-fi theme, what if this, what if that? But it turns into much more. I do not know if that makes it a success or not, but it’s definitely worth seeking out, if you can find it.
