made by yours truly..
Yes, you read the heading right I am talking like Yoda.
Wiser I feel, as I have had an epiphany about this whole blogging fiasco.
It is indeed week 10 and I am still struggling to find motivation to contribute to my blog consistently.
I’m writing an entry now (well… duh) and also watching House of Cards.
Truthfully, I’d rather be giving 100% of my attention to the television right now.
Back to the point, my epiphany
I’ve spent the past two weeks working on every production channel 9 had to offer about football due to the AFL Grand final.
(and I don’t really feel compelled to tell the blogging world about it. ha.)
And you know what over these past two weeks… I’ve actually been living my life!
I wasn’t wasting my time worrying about what I should be reporting to my blog, how I should make my life seem exciting and try to impress people I don’t know and don’t care about.
This blog is immaterial, I now feel that blogging is about showing off… If I really wanted to show off i’d learn to juggle fire whilst riding a unicycle.
No one cares what I have to say because there is so much crap on the internet, that the crap I contribute goes unnoticed. And I’m content with that because I want to live in the real world and interact with real people, not ones who hide behind screens all day.
I just want to make it known.. (to no one) that I really don’t care what this network thinks about me because I don’t care about it…
now back to Kevin Spacey
So my marathon continues and I’m currently half way through season five.
I’ve found my favourite episodes to be where marge disappears from the family unit for various reasons, like a cataclysmic gambling adduction and becoming a jailbird, and Homer is forced to be the maternal figure for the family. Homer’s lack of common sense and responsibility for homemaker duties are a a great mix and prove to still be laugh out loud moments.
I think my two favourite moments are..
and Homer’s refusal to do washing whilst Marge is in jail. So he simply starts sourcing his wardrobe from the attic, recommending that Bart and Lisa do the same..
Check out $pringfield (Or, How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love Legalized Gambling) from season five and Marge In Chains from season four…
Studying networks got me thinking about a really cool band called ‘the network’
they are a hybrid of two really famous bands from different eras..
Green Day and Devo.. the strangest supergroup to exist to date, i think.
have a listen…
they also have a thing for performing in mexican wrestling masks.
their identities are meant to be secret but arn’t really… kind of like slipknot.
In it’s last week I finally got around to seeing the Monet art exhibition at the NGV.
Whilst dodging school children and snobby pensioners, It was amazing to see an impressionists exhibition.
I was astounded in the way he was able to paint: light, shadow and reflection. His use of dimension was only apparent from a distance. when your got up close to his works it was amazing to see his brushwork and how the definition of the painting could only really be perceived by the eye from a distance.
It was well worth lining up to get into an art gallery…. I can’t believe I actually waited in line to get into an ART GALLERY!
On another note, the whole time I had this quote from Clueless running through my head…
