"We're all worth it, man. We're all worth millions of planets and stars and galaxies and universes." -River Phoenix

There are so many quotes I wanted to put, but that's always the one that comes to mind first when I'm asked this question.

My favorite show is Six Feet Under, always and forever.


My favorite book seems to change every year or so, but it's currently Less Than Zero by Bret Easton Ellis.
Set in Los Angeles in the early 1980s, this coolly mesmerizing novel is a raw, powerful portrait of a lost generation who have experienced sex, drugs, and disaffection at too early an age, in a world shaped by casual nihilism, passivity, and too much money a place devoid of feeling or hope.

Clay comes home for Christmas vacation from his Eastern college and re-enters a landscape of limitless privilege and absolute moral entropy, where everyone drives Porches, dines at Spago, and snorts mountains of cocaine. He tries to renew feelings for his girlfriend, Blair, and for his best friend from high school, Julian, who is careering into hustling and heroin. Clay's holiday turns into a dizzying spiral of desperation that takes him through the relentless parties in glitzy mansions, seedy bars, and underground rock clubs and also into the seamy world of L.A. after dark.

Do any of you have a Tumblr? I don't post too much, but I enjoy it. http://lunarpark.tumblr.com/

Tomorrow I'm having a 24-hour movie marathon. (Yes, I know I'm insane.) I'll post how it goes the following day!

My Own Private Idaho (1991), dir. Gus Van Sant

This has been my favorite movie since I was 15. I love everything about it so much, even its flaws. Every character, every line, every moment...I don't know if this film will ever be replaced.

I seriously can't believe it's been almost a month since I last posted.

[personal profile] animeshon, I sent your card last week, so I hope it gets to you safely!

Recent movies I've seen:
Everybody's Fine - I saw this for Sam Rockwell and liked it so much more than I thought I would.
The Road - I felt this movie was a remarkable achievement. I definitely want to read the book.
Brothers - I was only seeing this for Jake Gyllenhaal as, like Everybody's Fine, I wasn't that impressed by the trailer, but I really liked this one as well.
The Princess and the Frog - Very cute film. I really want the soundtrack.
Me and Orson Welles - Just saw this one today, and I wasn't disappointed; another great Linklater flick. The actor who plays Orson Welles (Christian McKay) does a truly fine job - I'm glad to see he earned a Spirit Award nomination for it!

As for upcoming movies, I absolutely cannot wait for A Single Man.

Right, so, I'm going to attempt the 30-day meme to get back on track.

For one month, post/share:

"Poison Oak" by Bright Eyes. My brother played it to me last year, and it won't sound like anything special if I try to put the moment in words, but I was very moved, to say the least.
