Dear friend,
It seems like every morning since that first night, I wake up dull, and my head hurts, and I can’t breathe.

Donnie DarkoIt wasn’t on my plans to watch a movie today, not to mention write about one. But my mood was okay, the afternoon was quite cold because of the intermittent rain outside (and here is usually as cold as a volcano), I wasn’t sleepy and Jake Gyllenhaal is too gorgeous to be ignored (yes, I can be that superficial, sue me), specially playing a cute little student who apparently has some serious mental problems.

Donnie Darko (2001) features a special guy called Donnie with sad eyes that make me want to grab him, lay him down, cuddle and whisper into his ear that everything is going to be okay. From the beginning of the story, Donnie has all the typical symptoms of schizophrenia: daylight dreams, nightmares and difficulties to take reality and fantasy apart. But soon we learn that this is not only his problem, but ours, once we too have difficulties to know what’s real in the story. (WARNING: this is NOT a spoiler free post).

I came across this movie while I was, once again, procrastinating. This was something very unusual, specially because it’s been months since I last watched something in my computer. My lazy moments have turned into something between funny videos and funny posts on popular blogs around the web.

Anyway… For some mysterious reason, I found myself on a website with tons of movies to watch and this one was at the top of its recent releases. Driven by this greed to watch something, 20 minutes later I was close to Carl (Jon Favreau), admiring his abilities in handling cooking tools and food in a restaurant called Gauloises  (when I don’t even know how to cook eggs). Seeing him as a celebrity who cooks amazing things, I must confess it was somehow difficult to watch the whole movie because I just started a diet. (more…)

1Wish I could talk more about this book, but it has left me speechless, in a good way of course. I could easily spend the rest of my life without speak.

Charlie, the main character of this book, has touched my heart in so many different ways that I would be stupid if I tried to describe each touch. Introverted, Charlie doesn’t know exactly how he’s going to fit in a world that claims so much attention, in which he has to “participate” in order to be accepted by the others. With the help of his friends Patrick and Sam, Charlie starts to “participate” in their lives by going to parties, getting high once in while, writing letters for an anonymous person about his feelings and his life and what’s going on. While I was reading the book, even though the discourse used by the author is clear the one we use to write letters, I had the impression that I was going through a diary. A very sweet one, by the way.

Cher just launched her new video for the single Woman’s world, released a few weeks ago. I’m a fan of Cher since I was little (not the most fervourous, you know? I remember that “Believe” was one of the most played singles on the radio in the 90’s and I love this song), and I do think that this is one of her best videoclips I’ve ever seen.

lola Não sei se já escrevi em algum lugar sobre algo que eu tenha lido ou visto, ou mesmo alguma peça de teatro que tenha presenciado. Nunca achei bacana essa história de emitir juízos de valor sobre uma coisa que não foi produzida por mim. De qualquer forma, aqui vou fazendo uma pequena recomendação que, ao que parece, passará despercebida pela web.
