matrixrefugee: the word 'refugee' in electric green with a background of green matrix code (Desire)
Excellent appointment with my therapist today: I shared quite a bit on my headspace dwellers this time, and she seemed really cool with it. I'm lucky to have her helping me...

Nipped into the library downtown to return some books and take care of some print jobs. Got out two more DVDs:

--"Moulin Rouge!" Yes... Baz Luhrmann's masterpiece, which I've been meaning to see for ages.

--Fritz Lang's "Metropolis", the 2002 restoration edition, which is so far the best restoration yet, or so I've been told.

And one of my all-time favorite books: Michael Ende's "The Neverending Story". I saw the original movie back when I was 12 or 13, when I went through a wierd period. I think I went through some sort of crisis just after I hit puberty: The fact that I'd become an adult physically affected me deeply. I figured it was time I cast off "childish" things, like fantasy and headspace-dwellers/imaginary friends. Occam's Razor to the enth degree, and damned if that thing doesn't cut both ways. Then, on a friend's reccomendation, I watched the movie... and it shook me back into myself, if that makes any sense. It made me realize how much "fantasy" and "reality" depend on each other, and how much we need both to be fully human. So I let my then imaginary friends/headspace dwellers come back home, as it were.

Watched "Corpse Bride" -- wow, what a sweet, macabre-ly funny and touching movie! And now I'm trying to find the soundtrack on Amazon.com. Definately got a few Ref Award Noms coming for that!

Just took down the Christmas tree in my room and started draping red and white Christmas lights over my windows; I'm cool with Valentine's Day this year... doesn't stop me from having that mischievous "anti-Valentine" icon here... Now I just have to take down the decorations around the rest of the house.
