Aspiring writer...rowing through life
Old phone booths. Old stores which stand like historical ruins. This is the generation of nostalgia. Everybody compares somebody or an aspect to something of the past and we bathe in nostalgia, welcoming the wave. Old fashion is revived. Old music is glorious and the legacy of a seemingly better period in this world. People run a marathon and their prize is loosing their legs because of the immorality of Satan's students. Kids go and watch their favourite singer, blessed in music and enjoying what should be a fantastic memory but instead the memory is shrapnel of nails showering the crowds and piercing into flesh. Its not hard to understand why this is the generation of nostalgia. We were raised in the age of terrorism, suicide is not irregular and our favourite artists are overdosing leaving us lost without their musical support. We're lost so we clutch onto the memories of better times, before the two giants of the big apple fell life seemed better and life before our generation is more appealing. We're slaves to technology, we're the sheep without a Shepard, artists overdose and Hollywood remake old films. It shouldn't be this way but we spit on originality because that means ejecting our minds from the clouds and accepting the grueling and dysfunctional realism. I wish I was born in 1969. I wish I was sweet sixteen again. I should probably stop obsessing over the past, exterminate my dreamscape and focus on the moment but that'll never happen. If I'm going to live to be middle-aged I'll still be swigging on Corona and spending my days in envy, anger and an sprinkle of optimism which prevents me from tying a noose. I just want to be pure.
I Don't Feel at Home in This World Anymore
Last night I laid in bed butt naked due to the unbearable heat and hunted through my Netflix trying to find a good film, but damn it's hard to find a decent film. Eventually, however, I found an independent Netflix film and what a hidden gem it was.
My Trainspotting 2 Review
Okay, if you're a movie buff and you're a fan of the original Trainspotting, you should know that it revolutionized cinema and made an impact. I watched Trainspotting when I was about fourteen, a better time in my youth, my mum bought it from a charity store and much like how she let me watch 8 Mile (when I was about ten), she allowed me to watch Trainspotting. I've always been a loner, drifter and being a loner movies are always here for me and I love films, so I was not disappointed with Trainspotting. It's only now aged eighteen and miserable in my early adulthood that I truly appreciate Trainspotting, it is not about heroin addicts; it's about friendships, decaying innocence, growing older and growing wiser. Sure we cannot forget Trainspotting's killer soundtrack, cinematography and memorable quotes especially the "choose life" quote which it revolves around; Choose life, choose a job, choose a career...
