I Am Legend (2007) How to Regulate Unstable Realities

Image
Reality is substance and significance shaped through time, narrative and exchange. A world exists! exhaustively populated by things and people. Small things and large things. Parasites and elephants. Each ordered and regulated by a peoples need for a minimal exchange. Quid Pro Quo. A dollar for a sandwich. and a sandwich for a dollar. But what is a sandwich? A couple slice of bread hugging meat and mayo. A set of object, each their own unique significance. Bread. Meat. Cheese. Mayo. Separate concepts conjoined and wrapped into something more than just a compound word. Sandwich, in so far that it is a thing and idea, is also a condensation. The individual uniqueness of a Sandwich's parts becomes collateral to its summarization. That thing we eat.

Reality is an assemblage of parts. Shattered, expanded and folded over. Chasing entropy, yet needing a reformation of significance's totality. Or, a re-conjoining. An exchanging or blending of parts. Reassigned for an eventual re-exch…

Amelie (2001) or How Creatives Make Better Lovers

Image
On September 3rd 1973, at 6:28pm and 32 seconds, a bluebottle fly capable of 14,670 wing beats a minute landed on Rue St Vincent, Montmartre. At the same moment, on a restaurant terrace nearby, the wind magically made two glasses dance unseen on a tablecloth. Meanwhile, in a 5th-floor flat, 28 Avenue Trudaine, Paris 9, returning from his best friend's funeral, Eugène Colère erased his name from his address book.

Nino, on the other hand is a porn store clerk by night and a collector of destroyed photo booth photos. The romantic fit between the two is obvious.

Dear Zombies: Big Announcement!

Dear Zombies, 


A couple minutes ago I launched a Patreon page! Wait you mean there are even more ways to give me money? Well, it's not really about that. I've always had the goal to make enough money from blogging to offset the cost of the movies and books I purchase that help me create content for this blog. After 4 years of google adsense I have made 23$, for the amount of blood and sweat I've put into writing such a low return is abolishes my self-esteem. So what is Patreon.com?

What I am hoping to do is use Patreon as a hub for all the content I'm creating, some of which does not find its way on to this blog, and make it easier for more zombies like you to find me. 
Also, I have no clue if people on the internet are reading or enjoying my blog. We live in a world were very few comment, and I know the way I write can be intimidating. But those are the words needed for the given situation. …
