fosteronfilm came home earlier than I thought last night. Yay! We had nummy gin and tonics, and watched I Heart Huckabees which was a dada, surreal, bizarrely existential film. If you asked me what it was about, I'd have to point and repeat "dada, surreal, bizarrely existential." It's a comedy. It's like the sequel to Being John Malkovich, but without any of the same actors, characters, director, or producer. And otherwise having nothing whatsoever to do with it. More of a "soul sequel." Definitely different. And different is something to be applauded, even if it left me giggling and reeling. And no, that wasn't from the gin.
Had a submission make it past the first round of Andromeda Spaceways Inflight Magazine. Now waiting to see if it makes it past round two.
And just got PayPal notification that Andromeda Spaceways paid me for my story "The Life and Times of Penguin" in the current issue. Hurray!
Did a couple critiques--one for Critters and one not.
We loved I Heart Huckabees in our house. We liked the way it comically discusses existentialism and nihilism. Did it start philosophical discussions in your house? It did in ours. But we probably have more books on philosophical topics than most people.
Huckabees is one of the most explicitly philosophical films I've ever seen. I am now on a quest for other surreal comedies.
Speaking of surreal, have you received any PayPal payments as part of the "Paid Searching" thing?
