unordinary story

Today is special day for gay couples in the UK. As the new law confirmed the same-sex marriage. So todays post is about unordinary love.
Recently I have watched the film named 'Kill Your Darlings' (2013). But in this post I am not going to write a report about the film itself. No. I want to write about the idea which came up after I watched it. Gay love stories in films.
More and more films have been now created about the homosexual people and usually gain praises from many film critics. It all started with the 'Brokeback Mountain' in 2005. It was one of the first of its kind. It talked loudly about the problems gay people faced and which are still relevant today. So not surprisingly it attracted lots of attention as well as. The cast of this film was impressive as well as acting and the story itself was unusual at that time. It was ''something new''. 'Brokeback Mountain' won 3 Oscars from total 8 nominations. Consequently the films about gay love stories floored the film industry. Those like 'Milk' (2008) and 'Single Man' (2009) was interesting but let's not forget that the main actor performing the gay men were one of the best actors of the decade, so that might uplifted these films. And the most recent examples include Patrick from 'The Perks of Being a Wallflower' (2012) and Kurt Hummel in 'Glee'. These guys were just an extra to the picture. It looked like they are in the film just because the director wanted to attract more audience - in this situation - gay people. And finally this year 'Blue is the Warmest Color' (2013) - by far the first most worth watching film about lesbian love - and 'Kill Your Darlings' (2013) were released. Talking about 'Kill Your Darlings' I was quite disappointed. Daniel Radcliffe acting was so bad that I started to think that he will be associated as Harry Potter as his best role for the rest of his acting career. But Dane DeHaan saved the day when  kept showing his potential after a great performance in 'The Place Beyond the Pines' (2012). And the story. Interesting Beat generation and the intriguing David Kammerer murder story could have make this film epic but unfortunately it didn't… Unordinary story ended as ordinary.


story about fish(man)

Once there was a fisherman. One day he caught a small fish. But it was not because he was good fisherman but because the fish wanted to trick him and got on the hook. So fisherman started to pull the poll and the fish started to suffer. He asked what was wrong but the fish could not tell him because of the pain it felt. Then the fisherman tried to convince the fish to surrender and sacrifice in order to save him from the hunger. 'We all need to put some effort in order to make everybody happy' claimed the fisherman. So the fish felt bad about its previous ideas to run from the man and it started to lose itself. The fisherman was about to take the fish out of the water when suddenly the thought came to the fish - 'But what about me? What about my future plans to visit the ocean? I am just a small fish, I cannot feed the starving men'. It started to move backwards in order to escape from it's destiny - the fisherman's bucket. And so the little fish escaped from the fisherman. Hurt by the hook but free it swam to the unknown waters.

erasing London

Two creatives behind the ‘street eraser‘ blog are merging the digital world with the analog, sticking their adobe-inspired art throughout london’s urban fabric. the giant playful labels illustrate the familiar grey and white checkerboard pattern, visible when using the eraser tool in photoshop. eliminating graffitti from traffic signs, color from mailboxes and portions of billboards, the intervention seemingly reveals a concealed world beneath our own. the team says of the digital tool interrupting everyday surroundings, ‘we rather like the idea that it’s hiding under the surface of everything around us.’

Vance Joy - Riptide

I was scared of dentists and the dark
I was scared of pretty girls and starting conversations
Oh, all my friends are turning green
You're the magician's assistant in their dreams

uh ooh ooh oooh 
uh ooh ooh and they come unstuck

There's this movie that I think you'll like 
This guy decides to quit his job and heads to New York City
This cowboy's running from himself
And she's been living on the highest shelf

Lady, running down to the riptide
Taken away to the dark side
I wanna be your left hand man
I love you when you're singing that song and
I got a lump in my throat because
You're gonna sing the words wrong

I just wanna, I just wanna know
If you're gonna, if you're gonna stay 
I just gotta, I just gotta know
I can't have it, I can't have it any other way
I swear she's destined for the screen
Closest thing to Michelle Pfeiffer that you've ever seen, oh

Lady, running down to the riptide
Taken away to the dark side
I wanna be your left hand man
I love you when you're singing that song and
I got a lump in my throat because 
You're gonna sing the words wrong
