I think I'm finally starting to see certain patterns in films, particularly the sort of "hero's journey" pattern that both of these films were based on. Now, if only I could capitalize on it....I mean, I realize that it comes with practice....it's just the "ass in chair" thing that I have so much trouble with....definitely something to work on as I go "back to school" tomorrow with anderyn, lisapt, and anyone else who wants to join us.
I plan on enjoying the rest of the weekend, no matter what. For some reason, I remember this poem from one of the first "Garfield" cartoons:
Labor Day, Schmabor Day,
What a dumb day:
You hire some jerk
Then send him away,
To celebrate work
By playing all day.
Worthy of the great Ogden Nash. You know, I think more kids would get into poetry if English teachers focused less on e. e. cummings and more on Ogden Nash. Can I get an "amen"?
Enjoy the holiday! I know I will.
By the way, I'm adding a tag for the "back to school" project, so you can follow along if you wish.
