It is back! Last time I took a commercial break, it was September and I have no idea what happened because I never planned for this ridiculously long hiatus. Technically a lot has happened, but not really. It’s just another adult life slowly drifting towards old age – in other words, my birthday’s this month and I don’t like it…
In recent news, I got a new tattoo at the end of January. It’s a black cat with elongated legs inspired by Dali elephants. I love it, and I love the fact that in addition to my own reason to get this specific tattoo, the meaning of a cat tattoo is just as fascinating. A link to the Afterlife – is definitely my favorite part.
Started this year off with a rock concert – Imagine Dragons Smoke+Mirrors tour. Let’s just say I was blown away and let’s not make me relive it because some people are unable to go to a concert without annoying the shit out of me. Ugh, people. But the band was amazing! The show was awesome and if they ever come back to Estonia, I’m 99% sure I’ll go to see them again.
Part of me wants to crawl into a hole on my birthday but instead, I actually invited people. Yes, I don’t know what happened, it was a moment of weakness and me wanting to celebrate me getting closer and closer to thirty. Oh, joy!
I’m pretty much on track with the award movies, and I’m thinking of posting a controversial post about The Hateful Eight. The main point, I didn’t like it. I know I should have, I know all the Tarantino fans are thrilled about it but I just couldn’t see it as what it was meant to be.
So far, I’ve also come short in terms of reviewing The Revenant. I liked it. It was visually brilliant and the acting by Hardy and Leo was great! It’s just, it was such a heavy movie and I keep hitting a wall when I start writing about it. There will be a review though, I think…
Latest wonder I saw was The Lobster. It was the weirdest movie I have ever seen, and yet, it was such a great interpretation of relationships. This movie deserves a second viewing, just because I’m sure I missed something the first time around. Also, Colin Farrell is such a great actor if you think about it. He is great with comedic roles, and with serious dramas. He is not great with blond hair though.
The 100 is back! But I’m hesitant about this season because I’m already a little bored. I know I shouldn’t say this, but I can’t help it. The whole cyber world story line is still interesting though, I like the concept, I just hate who is evolved with that plot. But my ship is not together which is the main reason to keep watching.
Trying to get back on the television groove has not worked out. I’ve yet to finish the first season of Kingdom, I’m saving Outlander until the new season is a bit closer, and I’m not sure I want to watch anything else. I’ve gone cold turkey, and have literally like 3 shows I watch regularly.
One of them is The Vampire Diaries because it’s my guilty pleasure. This week they finally killed off Elena and it was so underwhelming that I literally rolled my eyes. If this was it for her, seriously?? I’m so disappointed. They could have just left her in that deep sleep and that would have been enough. But no, they had to kill her with that ridiculous plot twist.
BOOKS & MUSIC
This year, YA fiction doesn’t seem to do it for me. I’ve disliked most of the books I’ve picked up, two of them from well loved series. I’ll continue reading both the series though, but I’m unimpressed to say at least.
Music has been a big part of my mornings. I can’t wait for the transport in silence anymore, I have to listen to Childish Gambino or Imagine Dragons. One of my favorites by Imagine Dragons, from the concert, is I’m So Sorry. The song was so great live, and with that in mind, I love it more than I should.
