"Power lines, my travlin' partner on this ride. Dripping, pulling - up and down, in this sing song, their lullaby blends with the swaying train. I curl myself into this journey; folding myself up into this pocket of time. Old familiars greet me - that swing set in the back yard, the ruins of an old church covered in new birth and old - mixed with unremembered newness."

Oh, Industry Whatever Will Become of Me?

Did you ever know that your my hero? Your everything I wish I could beeee. If I could fly higher than an eagle, you'd be the wind beneath my wings. ~Bette Midler~

I opted for movie renting in lue of actually studying today. Saturday must be a popular rental day b/c there were hardly any new releases I wanted to see left, and my standard backups were gone. I wasn't in the mood for Kate Hepburn or Drew Berrymore. In fact, I am now addicted to Series DVDs. If it was a series shown on HBO or Showtime, I want to rent it. :o). Today's pick was Carnivalle. Its a period piece about carnie folk around the 1930s depression era. Its a mystery about some seerer-dude. He's all forlorned and unhappy b/c he has a special gift and doesn't know who his daddy is. I was intrigued and will leave it at that. Okay, all right...I'll admit it. I picked it because one of the women who acted in But I'm a Cheerleader is in the show.

I also rented Beaches, where tonight's theme song came for the blogg. I love that movie. I realize I am C.C. Bloom, if I had to choose which character I reflect in real life...which to me can be sad. There is a scene where her husband, that Falcon Player's Theatre Director guy, is breaking up with her and he says, "I like where I am at, CC. Here, I'm not afraid or threatened." This line reflects the period in life C.C. is in. She lost her friend b/c she was afraid and felt threatened by her. I can't help self-reflecting the C.C. Bloom of my nature...and as I write this I realize I might be revealing too much about what I like to do when I watch a movie. Yes, people I rent Series DVDs because actors in the show have played queer roles in the past and I over analyze Bette Midler films. I cry at movies too. In fact, I bawled my eyes out when C.C. asks the little girl Victoria if she'd come live with her...I want C.C. to be my mom.

I Beaches!
