So my big goal of posting about this was trampled by family health problems and 1 giant hangover. I did attend the Gories show at Emo's east and was totally blown off my ass by them. Sometimes the old things are the best things. I will see if I have any pictures and what not but I didn't really get out there and celebrity hunt and party cruise I guess I just wasn't feeling it this year. I enjoyed the time I had with my husband more than torturing Rooney Mara and her film crew as to why they were ruining my enjoyment of the Kid Congo (which my husband had to inform me of later). I do remember asking some guy who he was and just getting the name "Ramone" over and over. Everyone looked to be enjoying themselves and downtown was a terrifying mess to be avoided at all costs. I liked the shirt " Hi Welcome to Austin now DON'T FUCKING MOVE HERE" that was a hoot. It's a good point to be at I suppose when you just don't care if you know everyone. Just happy to know the ones that you do. Nite Nite.

Just watched this and wanted to write a little about it. It was written and directed by Hiroshi Takahashi, screen writer of all the Ringu movies and several others. It is definitely a nice departure from the old j-horror genre. It is a bit of a return to the Japanese horror of the 80's and early 90's. I hate to make an obvious comparison but Baptism of Blood comes to mind due to the fact that both involve brain surgery. So, just to give you a quick run down before I post the trailer it's about a family, 2 young girls with 2 brain surgeons for parents. The parents get ahold of what appears to be some sort of WWII film showing doctors experimenting a specific section of the brain. The "Sylvian" are of the frontal lobe produces hallucinations when electrical stimulation is induced. Well that is the bare bones of the plot, I will just say it does stay weird from beginning to end. That is one of the main reasons I became obsessed with Japanese films in the fist place is that they do weird better than almost anyone else. Enjoy the trailer and try to see the film if this and the trailer intrigue you. Nite , Janet
I make this resolution every year to force myself to do several types of writing a day. I have been horribly amiss in my resolution, so, this is just me saying I am going to start doing this every day. I may seem trite to anyone if anyone read this, ever so I think by doing what I said I was going to will eventually get me to where I need to be. That being said, it is far too late and I must go to sleep. nite nite.
