Dreaming in Color… Why I Won’t Watch a 3D Movie & Why You Should Go See Inception.

18 Jul

On Friday I went and saw the movie Inception and loved it, just didn’t love the seats at the theatre, Bum Breaker!

I think about dreams a lot, and I myself dream almost every night. I dream in color, but I’ve come to understand that not everyone does. I always remember my dreams because of a certain color, like last night it was red for blood. My cat is dying from Kidney failure, and sad as it is, that’s what I dreamt about.

In Inception, a person is loaded into their dream world where to them it feels like they’re really living it, the problem with this is that in the real world, they can no longer dream. The only way they can is to be attached to this machine that makes them.

I want to correlate this with 3D movies. I’ve seen one movie, but after understanding just how 3D works, I’ll never see another one. When you’re watching one of these films or TV shows, you’re brain is actually being tricked into thinking it sees these objects, some close, some far. To me, it’s like having the natural make-up of your brain altered, and personally, I’d hate to walk out of one of those movies one day, or with the new TV’s too, and no longer see the world in 3D.

Could you imagine?

Just saying…

Anyway. The movie was great, and you should really go see it! Hopefully NOT in 3D.

ha ha.

I Finally Have an Office… and I’ve run off the Hippy ghosts…

I finally have an office as of today, the extensive remodel on our bad 70’s home, turned contemporary, is finally becoming fruitful. The 3500 square foot, tear-out-all-the-wood-paneling-and-shag project has revealed many surprises, asbestos, mold, rot, leaky roof, etc etc. 

 

My office until today, had been the dining room table, which is never very exciting, or good, hardly the place to escape the television and write…

Along with an office I have a bedroom, no longer haunted by the swingers of it’s horrible past, and a closet large enough to fit all my husbands clothes… yes, my husbands.

I am still hoping for another snow storm to hit and tear off the deck, but considering there was already fifteen feet piled on it from the snow drifting off the roof, it now seems unlikely that I will score a new porch via insurance…bummer.

The record player, that once housed the ever delightful Neil Sedaka vinyl, is long since trashed, as well as the avocado bathroom, and mint green kitchen.

6 bedrooms are now 5, and the entire lower floor is a separate apartment all together. 

The Bomb shelter (yes BOMB shelter) under the garage is still just storage, but someday it will serve as the wine cellar, but thats still a long ways away, so the bottles continue to collect dust.

There is still a hole in the floor that looks down on the lower level and basement, but the cats rather enjoy collecting nails and dropping them down there, so I can’t yet bring myself to patch it.

All in all I’d say. Never do this, you’re crazy.

I’m a little concerned my deck will fall off…

1 Jan

I hope everyone had a lovely night, I had fun, ordered Chinese, had champagne, ran the gamut of typical new years eve traditions, except I kicked ass playing Wii bowl…

Anyways, my point. My computer sits next to a window that looks out on my deck. I still have my tomato plants out there, what can I say…I’m lazy. BUT the deck has about 3 feet of snow on it, I wish I could show you, but I haven’t found my iphone yet today…

It’s also still snowing, and the wet heavy kind. But I suppose I was going to get the deck replaced ANYWAYS, so if it falls off, insurance  will pay for it. There’s also an old futon out there, now I really feel like a pack rat, but I actually keep a rather clean house, it’s just that I’m remodeling…

anyways, just thought I’d voice my concerns for my deck…
