See you at Big Wow Comic Fest!!! Got an 8 hour car drive head of me. If you saw my car then you saw me driving from L.A to San Jose. Got to hit that road now. Peace!!!
I just finished watching the movie Lust For Life from 1956 with Kirk Douglas as tormented Dutch painter Vincent Van Gogh. This film was just wonderful. I never realized just how crazy Van Gogh really was. I mean I knew he cut of his ear, but that’s all I knew about him. Besides his amazing art work of course. After the movie I decided to read about him on some websites. My favorite new fact I learned about him was he had gonorrhea. Hee hee hee. When I die I DO NOT WANT people to know what sexual diseases I had. Not that I even have any!!!!! I’m just saying that sucks. I wanted to know about his art and inspiration. Not his anal warts. Don’t worry he didn’t have anal warts, I was just exaggerating a bit. He really did have gonorrhea though. Hee hee hee. I also learned that Van Gogh was very depressed, but what artist isn’t? I truly enjoy watching Kirk Douglas on screen. Even if he plays a “The Red Headed Madman” (that would be the brilliant name the people gave him at the time).
How great is the movie poster for this film?!
Nerds With Vaginas (ME) and Castle Corsetry (best friend) had a booth at Stan Lee’s CosplayCon. It was fun for bit. I don’t cosplay. If you don’t know what cosplay is, we should be friends!!! Cosplay is short for costume play. Basically it’s like dressing up and playing pretend. My nephew does this and he is 2. All my friends cosplay, they love it. I’m really, really not into it. I guess it’s because I feel like I am trying to grow up and dressing up makes me feel like I am regressing. But my friends love it and that’s all the matters. The best part of this event was Stan Lee signing my business partner’s marvel corset!!!!!!
I am a weak, weak little girl. I just woke up from a horrible panic attack. Fast asleep and suddenly woken by an intense pain. Sweating and practically panting like crazy. It’s so silly to have panic attacks, but they are the worst!!! I don’t know what triggered this attack, I SHOULD KNOW! I think in the back of my head I do, I just want to admit it. It’s funny to think Woody Allen and I have the same phobia. HOW THE HELL DOES HE DEAL WITH IT??? I feel like I am practically turning into Woody Allen and the next step is to date my adopted asian daughter. We both are very, very agoraphobic, which means we are afraid of EVERYTHING!!! Every day I push myself more and more to break down walls. My friends are very supported and help, but I’m still shy about it to them. I put on my brave face but underneath is a terrified little girl. Agoraphobia isn’t going to stop me from what I want in this world. So no matter how many panic attacks I go through, it’s just going to make me stronger in the end!!!! What made the panic stop you ask? My dad. My best friend. I refused to call him at first. I hate being weak and going to my parents for things. After 20 minutes of struggling and nearly fainting, it was time to call the parents and get help. I didn’t want to take a xanax, I don’t like relying on pills. But I took one anyway. I guess I am a bit of a prescribed pill junkie. Thank jebus I live two blocks down from my parents. I had to wait until the panic attack stopped so I could drive up. That’s the worst when you have to force yourself to calm the fuck down. I sat on my bed counting my breathe like I was lamaze class. I went up to their house and my dad knew exactly what I needed. He put on in the living room a Hitchcock movie and sat with me during the movie. We watched The Lady Vanishes from 1938. It was simply wonderful and made me feel a million times better. I love good old classic movies!!! If you haven’t seen this movie, which I’m sure you haven’t. You should try it. Everyone should watch a black and white movie once in a while. NOT THE FUCKING ARTIST!!! That movie was bullshit.
I just pre-ordered this bad boy. All I know is this book has Star Wars and Shakespeare and I was sold on the idea. Sadly it doesn’t come out til July. But I can’t wait to read it!!! For now I’ll just go back to reading my new Peter Sellers book.
