Twenty-Four Usable Hours

October 21, 2010

I once wrote a short story with that title. The delivery was kinda stupid, but know it makes me ponder how I use my time, and how aware I was of that even back then…

Anyways, twenty-four hours ago I had a weird day at work, and was coming back from it. In fact, to compensate I went out and bought this movie for pretty cheap that was quite enjoyable. You know, instead of doing the responsible thing.

Also, at work (not “one of my jobs”), the computers were down for about twenty-four hours. It was interesting, and not too difficult using the old technology. Adding machines and handwritten receipts – take that computers! Although, one of my co-workers had difficulty balancing her drawer at the end of the day.

And, IN twenty-four hours, it will be October 22nd. Not only will I be 1/12th of they way to 27 from 26 (if you think that’s nerdy, I once wanted to write 1/52nd of the way), but it will be one month of having this idea for a movie/story/whatever. And, what have I done with it? I have an outline, but that was done a few weeks ago (actually, it was done by that first 52nd lol). So, what have I done since?

So, how am I really using my time? Am I using the time available to my advantage, or is it just slipping through my hands? Like sand. That rhymed, and I wanted the hourglass reference.

You see, this is exactly what the character has to decide. And I’ve gotten ideas to tweak it, and make it more interesting, but have I done more than just write them down?

Wow. I really like this CD.

It isn’t as good as their early work (though, I don’t think anything ever will be), but it’s an improvement on their previous album. Not that the other one was that bad, just that it was too much of a departure of their classic sound.

The only real problem with this album is that it’s too much of a group effort. While it’s still Stuart who’s doing all the writing, everyone sings. So this is some weird Arcade Fire/Mamas and The Papas kinda album. Which in itself isn’t bad, but as a Belle & Sebastian album?

As a whole though, it’s very good. Some songs take a bit of time to really stand out, and I’m sure as time goes on more songs will do so. But for now, watch out Laura Veirs – you have some company at the top of my list (though, I’ve only bought 4 albums from 2010, so there isn’t much room to begin with…)!

I dunno why. But it does.

I feel lifeless, and it’s isn’t even 8. I feel cold, but I’m sitting in the warmest room in the place (though, the heater isn’t on yet). I’m drinking coffee, but even that seems awfully dull.

I don’t know what to do. I feel alone. I feel left out. I want something, need something right now. But I probably won’t get it. This season…it does something to you.

You can’t live, with everything dead around you. You can’t see things to the end, cause the end is in sight.

And it isn’t even November yet…

We all keep them. Some should be said. Some.

It’s funny. Last night at this time I heard a song on the radio and read some horoscope advice. And I thought that I should give up because she isn’t worth it.

And then I run into her, and she points how we hadn’t run into each other much this week. Does this mean she wants to see me more often? Does this mean she wants to talk with me?

So, is she worth it? Should I give up?

And I realize, it isn’t your outside influences that tell you what to do. It’s you who does what you do, and I should do what I want to do – even if I expect a negative outcome…

Cause I’ve read your horoscope/and now I’ve given up all hope/so I don’t really love you anymore

I Can’t Wait pt. II

The best dystopian films I have ever seen. I know this seems to have little to do with the other two, but they do.

I can’t wait. This movie will be awesome (I hope!).

I love slow sci-fi drama. And I keep watching movies for ideas, influence, and sub plots to include.

I have my idea for slow sci-fi drama. I can’t wait.
