  • Our minds are like crows. They pick up everything that glitters no matter how uncomfortable our nest get with all that metal in them. ~ Thomas Merton

    Movies: Manufactured realities for consumer consumption


    like sponges, soaking up all that glitters
    picking and choosing in a garden or sea of debris
    escaping the real world for a world of different story
    clamoring for a bit of intrigue
    a reality, more exciting, more sexy, more cutting edge, more evil, more heroic

    claiming that moment for their own
