Star Wars, Again
Much better than the first time.

I think this is because the first time you "see a film where you know the story/key events" then things can drag as much other content is considered filler, and there's a desire to know "How you get from A to B" rather than enjoying "the passage from A to B". At least, that's my thinking. Subsequently nothing is a surprise, so the journey is more exciting.
Oh, and learning when to put ones fingers in ones ears makes much of the dialogue much better. Action-FingersInEars-Action-FingersInEars-(repeat until the "Noooooooooooooo!").

Also, watching films in conjunction with thinking about photography (big surprise there eh!) has gotten me thinking about studio shots, and seeing them as "stills from a film/story" that need directing rather than just observing. Of course I'm reminded about dreamfire calling me an observer (self-fulfilling prophesy) and of Vogue (via kantti). No wonder there is no space in my head for anything useful.

Looking forward to NMA this weekend, and a bit of dancin' on the side perhaps.

:-) I think I'll have the camera with me on Sunday so won't be being enthusiastic in the pit. The "dancin' on the side" was referring to "the additional activity this weekend of going to a club where I might be dancing" rather than at the gig!

Ah yes..."dancing on the side" not "dancing at the side". I've obviously not woken up properly yet :)

Its also a great opportunity to boss people around and pose them. When I was small I could never work out why girls wanted to play with Barbies, the I started to do photography and found that I was doing jsut the same thing but with real people.

My little brother's got an excellent book of photographs by Guy Bourdin. You might find his stuff interesting. Even though it's "just" fashion photography there's always something else going on. His photos have inspired moving image things, like pop videos. I think still photography that captures a sense of narrative is very skillful.

Vogue

Vogue is useful. Or so I'm going to have to keep telling myself if I want to justify taking out another subscription ...

Re: Vogue

If it would help you could keep cuttings of the good bits for me? :-)

I'm considering a subscription to National Geographic for the pictures, but one for Vogue would probably really confuse my mother.

Re: Vogue

'Good' is a fairly subjective term. And there are a lot of photos in Vogue. Although an excuse is an excuse ... :)

Re: Vogue

True - I was thinking the more arty/narrative spreads, the kind of thing you get at foto_decadent.

I thought the dialogue was much better and didn't notice any filler :)

Going for my second visit tomorrow morning.
