I just got home, went out for a few drinks, and watched a movie, 21 Grams. It was amazing. If I can ever write a screenplay even remotely as good as this way, I'd be very happy. I don't know if I've ever seen a group of more depressing characters, but it was so well done. Sean Penn, as always, just brilliant. Benicio Del Toro, amazing. So many topics are touched on, fate, religion, life, death, guilt, redemption. Can people change? I can't stop thinking about it. What I got from it, ultimately, is that life does go on. Watching the news when I got in also futher cemented the fact, people die everyday. We just have to make the most of each day.
I really have to start writing. I mean, if I can leave behind just one good book, one good screenplay, one great poem, something. Then maybe, all this BS I, we got through, it'll be worth something. I can leave my little mark, insignificant as it may be. I don't know. If you've seen the movie, please leave your two cents, I really liked it. The gritty look at times, the colors, the visual motifs. Ok, ok, don't want to oversell it. But go see this movie. If anything, at the very least it will make you think. I think I needed to see this, everything happens for a reason, and somethings are just fated to happen.
Speaking of life going on, my Bears season is over. :( Jauron is probably gone, I almost jumped on the let's keep him another season bandwagon, but that play today to end the half. Nice clock management. Not to mention four out of five losing seasons. It's common sense, he's got to go.
I think that's about it for today...tonight, whatever, I need to pass out now. G'nite one and all.
