Long road home

"Dead peeper." "Dreadful, i'n't it?"

Last night I saw a movie named "Tideland". It was written and directed by Terry Gilliam, probably better known for his work in the Monty Python series of films. Tideland is probably one of the most disturbing films I've ever seen, and yet it was absolutely brilliant. The movie begins with Mr. Gilliam giving an introduction to the movie, standing in front of the camera, shot as if in black/white. The introduction, I should say, did nothing for me. I was so enormously skeptical about this movie after the introduction I almost didn't watch it. For me it would have worked better as an epilogue.

Anyway, Tideland officially goes down as one of my favorite-est movies ever. It really was brilliant. Be forewarned, dear reader, if you haven't seen it you have no idea what you are getting yourself into. It is a total mind-fuck, if ever there was one. That being said, it is brilliant.

Long road home

I *NEED* tutorials!!!!

I want pretty/better/more userpics, but I don't want someone else's. Well, I take that back, sometimes I'm going to use other's userpics. I want to LEARN how to make my own. Then I'm going to make bejillions of them.

I also want to get so good at coding that I can make this journal more personal, more a representation of me. So if you can point me in the direction of a great LJ userpic tutorial I will be indebted to you forever and ever and ever. I have access to CS3, amoung other things, but I'm not afraid to use Paint either! Hee, hee. :))
