I've started off my Spooky Season. watching old horror movies that I've never seen before. So far, Nosferatu, the Cabinet of Dr. Caligari, and tonight, the Seventh Seal (which an informal poll of my film nerd friends determined is, yes, a horror movie).
I've been pleasantly surprised at how entertaining these movies have been. I suppose they're classics, so they have that going for them, but you expect most classic horror to have a lot of eye rolling moments.
I have very vivid memories of listening to stuff like the Cure and New Order as a kid, and I'm really curious where they came from.
My mom was a James Taylor/Carole King/Linda Ronstadt etc fan.
My dad pretty much only listened to music you would've heard blasting out of a mid-70s suburban basement.
I think a factory sealed copy of Purple Rain was as wild as their record collection got.
Plus, we lived in the rural South. Not much chance to stumble upon that kind of music from the radio.
I do appreciate that this movie develops some other characters besides Jo and Amy. Beth is more than a catalyst for tragedy! Can you believe?
Anyhow, if you're interested, my Spotify username is the same as the one here.
re: last toot
I had a weird fuckin dream about dying and going to purgatory, which was basically just a highly mediocre, overly bureaucratic all-inclusive vacation.
I've felt really compelled to try and write a story around it, but all the outlining feels very Good Place fanfiction adjacent, and I'm not down for that.
I contain multitudes.
