Hmm. No real reason to post so far. I'm not friends-locking at the moment, and I'm not paying for anything yet, but we shall see (I do miss my icons). I feel a little odd because most of those I've subscribed to and know from LJ kept their LJ names, but while I love grindhouseblues, I'm also enjoying the opportunity for a change.

1) I'm posting to kill time and try this out.
2) I feel free~
3) ...Hi, world!

(P.S. I also miss my Brokeback mood theme...I feel so naked here)

I'm still deciding what sort of thing to post about here, as I do want it to vary from my LJ. I could go more in-depth about film school, or more about movies in general...or actually post some writing. Hmm.

What I am going to do, however, is try to include an actor/actress/filmmaker with every post and talk about things like favorite movies. My first one is going to be my favorite actor of all time: Joaquin Phoenix )

I'm also going to include a general movie suggestion.
Today's viewing recommendation: Might as well make it Somersault!
Somersault (2004)
Coming of age: Heidi, 15, runs away from home after her mom sees her kissing her mom's boyfriend. She goes to a Snowy River resort where a vague job offer doesn't pan out. She manages to find a place to live and a job at a convenience store. She's between childhood - nursery rhymes and a scrapbook of glittery unicorns - and adulthood - working, sorting out emotions and sexuality, and dealing with social slights and false charges of bad behavior. She's attractive and her loneliness makes her vulnerable. She sleeps with Joe, the son of local ranchers, and she awakens in him feelings he can't express. Is there any way she can put off adulthood and be a kid awhile longer?
With: Abbie Cornish, Sam Worthington, Erik Thomson, Anne Louise Lambert, Leah Purcell
