Films I must see when I next have access to them in theatres, or when they hit DVD, whichever comes first: (Yes, I have discovered TrailerAddict, and it is not a good thing, because I budget in enough time and money for about a movie a month o_O;)

The 27 Club






Joe Anderson is my movie boyfriend. Every time I watch this trailer I want to see the movie a little more.

Sounds Like Teen Spirit:






(I'm a sucker for documentaries and films involving kids, and accomplishing useless but great feats. Bouncy pop music is a side bonus.)

Oh look, another documentary!

Home:






The trailer is a little heavy-handed (in English at least) but it's not LYING. I also think this must be by the same guys who did Winged Migration, which was absolutely STUNNING. I would watch this just for the visuals, even if I completely disagreed, which I obviously don't.

Movie I haven't decided about yet )

Not in the Next Month, but have to see regardless: )

[edit: fixed!]

Ugh. Tonight sucks.

My entire left side hurts for no apparent reason. It started last night with my foot, and now my entire arm (elbow, hand and shoulder) are so sore that I can barely type. It's not carpal tunnel because it's not my wrist - it's the little bones of my hand and my joints, and it's a different hand than usual. I am not pleased.

Especially because I was going to write something for [info - community]contrelamontre, dammit. Well, first I was going to do my Dreamweaver assignment, but I was hurting too bad: then I was going to write something, but I'm still hurting too bad. I still haven't taken photos of my BJDs like I'd planned or done anything with my art journal. I did take pictures of Jess, though, and they're pretty.

Add to that the fact that we're supposed to be moving in like, a week, and haven't heard from anybody about an apartment, and just found out that my parents' apartment doesn't allow people not on the lease to live there (although they think that children probably don't count, but they don't know, and they're not sure about "daughter's lesbian fiancee").

My parents said they were willing to spot us a little more money than they had originally planned to help us get a studio or something, because their house was less expensive than they expected. Which is tremendously generous of them, but still doesn't solve the problem. The whole point was that we were subletting because we need to be there to do interviews -- everyone wants to do in person interviews and applying is easier that way -- and we were giving ourselves a time limit "make it or break it" sort of deal to get jobs, or move in with my parents and apply there.

So the problem with getting our own place is that
(1) We don't have those jobs yet - and almost no money - so getting our own lease, instead of finishing off someone else's, would be almost impossible
therefore, the only reasonable way to live without roommates would be to have my parents sign the lease, or to have them sign as guarantors,
but
(2)barely anyone does month-to-month or three-month leases, and we don't want to mess around with having my parents signing a 6-month or year-long lease, because if we don't get jobs we can't move out and we've just tied my parents into an extra financial obligation for twice or four times as long as we want to.

And yet, now our plan to be employed and self-sustaining within three months or moving in with my parents in fucking Mamaroneck seems like it's more complicated than just living in Chicago.
Or, you know in a box. Why didn't they check this stuff?

dfasdlkj. I am so stressed out. I have also just typed enough to have written the damn story.

We have, however, hung out with Lacey (and Krista - I wish I was better friends with her, she's cool) twice this week, so that's cool. I hope to get to see other friends this week.

Oh, and I have a cute new haircut. So yay?

Okay, but this made me feel better:
