I've been having a strangely emotional week. Maybe it's because I'm on the cusp of turning 27, maybe it's because there's a full moon reaching it's peak in roughly two hours, or maybe it's just that I'm out of beer. Whatever it is, all I seem to want to do lately is moodily wander the streets listening to dramatic music or spread magazines all over my room and make creepy collages while listening to dramatic music. The dramatic music is key.
This is all cathartic and fulfilling (I think?) but it's getting to a point that feels slightly ridiculous. With all the Bjork and Interpol and Radiohead scoring my life, I can't help but imagine over-dramatic images from my week being cut together into a slo-mo scene, Wes Anderson style.
I wish I had the camera/editing skills/motivation to film some kind of hilarious version of this, but alas, I don't. Instead, pour yourself a glass of whiskey with a side of anxiety and imagine me walking in slow motion in the rain and shaking my fists at the sky while you listen to INXS:
Is it a coincidence that this song is first on my oh-boy-it's-fall playlist? (Or that it's also the sorta-slo-mo opening to Donnie Darko?) Maybe I'm in for a dramatic season.
