  • Mood:

about last night

another million dollars on dvds yesterday. I seem to be making some headway against evening crappy mood by watching westerns. so I bought a bunch of them. last night was Little Big Man with a very young Dustin Hoffman. I've been watching the "Indian-friendly" films because I suspect that, say, a John Wayne movie would just get the little fascists in my head going.

I did pick up a couple of Clint Eastwood flicks but complicated views on wild west violence don't trigger me particularly and I find them interesting.

also I can convince myself that I'm kind of doing work when I watch these things. although the dissertation will not address film directly and although I won't be writing specifically about westerns at all for several months I figure it won't hurt to get a certain frame of mind in place so that I can keep sight of the end while I'm writing the beginning.

this also helps to justify the capital outlay.

after the movie a couple of episodes of the Simpsons takes me right on into bedtime without too much undue anguish.

that said, the good-in-the-morning-shitty-at-night bouncing ball act is somewhat tiring still.
