Lately I've been whipping out unrelated collages for art. They're concept weak and fun galore so I think I'll just continue to collage until my hearts content and my teacher screams at me for only creating collages 6 weeks into our body of work. Here they are! (click for bigger images)

I think you know you're about to have a depressing night when by 7:30 you're chowing down a jar of chocolates and reading out loud 25 most romantic movie quotes.

"When Harry Met Sally" (1989)

Columbia Pictures
“I love that you get cold when it’s 71 degrees out. I love that it takes you an hour and a half to order a sandwich. I love that you get a little crinkle in your nose when you’re looking at me like I’m nuts. I love that after I spend day with you, I can still smell your perfume on my clothes. And I love that you are the last person I want to talk to before I go to sleep at night. And it’s not because I’m lonely, and it’s not because it’s New Year’s Eve. I came here tonight because when you realize you want to spend the rest of your life with somebody, you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible.”
—Harry (Billy Crystal) to Sally (Meg Ryan)

"The Apartment" (1960)

United Artists
“Miss Kubelik, one doesn’t get to be a second administrative assistant around here unless he’s a pretty good judge of character, and as far as I’m concerned you’re tops. I mean, decency-wise and otherwise-wise.” — C.C. Baxter (Jack Lemmon)

"Some Kind of Wonderful" (1987)

Paramount Pictures
Watts (Mary Stuart Masterson): [putting on Keith’s diamond earrings] “What do you think?”
Keith (Eric Stoltz): “You look good wearing my future.”=

post shenanigans and drunkness

I hate topic sentences and since all my blog posts never cross one solid topic I think it's extremely stupid to use one. Firstly my most exciting news to share is I GOT A NEW LENS! It's a Sigma 10-20mm wide angle zoom which is gnarly because the teenage girl that sold it to me at Ted's photo store didn't even tell me it was a wide angle even after I pointed out quite obviously that the lens looked pretty wide. I fully intend to jump back into photography now and I'll try to upload any photos that I think are worth sharing. Since I last posted holidays ended, school began and inbetween all that I have a: moped about assignment loads, b: procrastinated over starting said assignment loads and c: shot a post in the middle of no where at 3 in the morning. Since talking about school sucks I'll touch on the party. Posts are the weirdest because they don't start till midnight which means right when my body clock is ready for sleep, you gotta push past that urge and instead drive to random acerage in random suburbs and take photos of mostly random drunk people. It never ceases to amuse me how many more slutty hook ups there are at posts. It's like people think- what a better opportuinity than to hook up with a girl all dolled up looking pretty in the middle of muddy long grass, while it's raining, at around 10 degrees.  Hey, why not- whatever floats your boat as they say. That's really all I feel like typing right now because I really want to go back to sleep due to fucked up sleeping patterns this weekend. Hope you're all not suffering too harshly from going back to school.

titles are for suckers

Being addicted to books is really causing me some trouble. I can't feel happy with my life when I'm reading about faeries, adventures, the future, places I want to go and places I want to be. Their memories start to feel like my own sometimes and I try say that in the least crazy way manageable. Mainly I wish I lived in the past because everything interesting and fascinating in life seemed to happen in a time before I was a born. I guess if I believe in reincarnation though then I most likely lived then anyway! Right now I want to join a circus like in Water for Elephants or light fire crackers in the forest next to a boarding school in America like Looking for Alaska. Going to school in which there is no rule breaking, nothing fascinating, surprising or amusing happening is starting to really feel like a waste of life. I'm swaying further and further from the whole going to university in Brisbane idea and instead saving to go some place where I'd have the opportunity to be surprised. I love the quote from Looking for Alaska;

"Imagining the future is a kind of nostalgia. (...) You spend your whole life stuck in the labyrinth, thinking about how you'll escape it one day, and how awesome it will be, and imagining that future keeps you going, but you never do it. You just use the future to escape the present."  

There's nothing in this stupid world I love more than being surprised so I search for the Great Perhaps in one surprise at a time.

don't know

I'm starting to think that I don't know anyone. I thought my Mum didn't know the lyrics to any song and would forever be half humming half singing along to the radio. Turns out Mum knows the lyrics to nearly every Cat Stevens song. I thought my old boss would never, ever quit her job because she's part crazy but I just found out she is closing down her store. I thought that I was happy but turns out I'm really grumpy and self destructive. I  don't think I'll ever really know anyone but that's okay because I love surprises.
