Odd movies

There are films with a heavy, controversial theme that can leave an unforgettable print in your head and that you know that once you have seen it, you won’t feel the same afterwards. An example?

The Night Porter

Disturbing like it’s not permitted. It still haunts me now. I don’t know what’s bothering me the most in that movie: the weird relationship between the charachters played by Charlotte Rampling and Dirk Bogarde (in fact, I’m a bit fascinated by this, that’s what bothers me), the recurring flashbacks into the Second World War,

Another one? 

Last tango in Paris

I hated it, I still hate it now.

So, what are the movies that left you an unforgettable print?

Fake plastic trees

Whatigotsofar came with a Christmas meme, and I just stole it. You’re into the Christmas spirit or you’re not  🙂 the grinch
There it goes.

  1. What do you really want for Christmas but you know nobody will get it for you?
  2. Geez, that’s difficult. I would say MJK if I was silly. More seriously, a Santa Claus.

  3. What do you not want for Christmas but you know that somebody will get it for you?
  4. The traditional Christmas Party of my newsroom. But I have the sentiment it would change dramatically this year from the past events.

  5. When do you open your gifts (Christmas eve or Christmas morning)?
  6. If you have the chance to travel the country like me to visit your family on this period, you would say every day from the Christmas eve to the end of the year.

  7. Do you prefer gifts wrapped or in gift bags?
  8. Wrapped. It’s always a pleasure to contemplate the wrapping technique of my family (if they wrapped the gifts themselves)

  9. Did you regift anything this year?
  10. Yes, it’s my speciality. Remember than what doesn’t please you could make the happiness of someone else. It applies for partners too.

  11. What’s your favourite Christmas movie?
  12. sorry, it’s in French

  13. What’s your favourite Christmas TV special?
  14. It’s not really a Christmas TV Special, but it’s often broadcasted on Christmas.

  15. Do you like egg nog?
  16. Eeeeewwwwww.

  17. Real tree or fake tree, which do you prefer?
  18. Fake trees. Mine looks a little bit like this.
    pisa tower

  19. Would you actually use one of those fireplace DVDs if you don’t have a fireplace?
  20. Certainly not.

  21. Are you sick of Christmas music yet?
  22. I have a very selective ear.

  23. Are you getting up early to wait in line to do some Boxing Day shopping (Canada’s equivalent to Black Friday)
  24. No.

  25. When was the last time you sat on Santa’s lap?
  26. Santa used to terrify me when I was a little kid. So, never. It was best for both parties, because I was a terrible child, and God knows what I could have done to him.

So, if this is a tag, it has to be passed. Raindreamer, Liz, DDTD, Whoknowswhy, WishBoNe, shae and Cricket, be my guests.

Oh, and Merry Christmas to you.

Sea, sex and sun

I was watching yesterday a documentary about holidays club reserved for single people (or people above 18). The journalists chose to follow two characters, one female and the other one male. I had really pity for the male one. He was a 38 year-old engineer who never married nor lived with a woman. He was an average guy, not good-looking but not ugly either.  And he got rejected many times because he had a lot of competition with more handsome men than he.

Those clubs are a holiday version of the night clubs, where there’s only criteria that matters: the physic. If you’re just average, you will struggle to find a partner. But remember that there’s always uglier than you and therefore, you have to cruise in your league (or under), you will have a better chance to score.

I doubt however that you can find true love in those places.  There are exceptions, of course. “Against all odds, I’ve found the man of my life in a club. We just clicked on the dance floor, and it turned out we had a lot of common points. It’s just a pure coincidence” I.,36, explained.

The rule in the club is more a one night stand ( sometimes more). What are the chances your flirt there shares the same center of interests than you? These are close to zero. Because your attraction for him/her is purely physical.

The ones who are likely to score the most in holidays clubs are the entertainers (DJ, dancers, sport instructors,…) because they are like stars in their little universe. Everyone in the club knows them. The male ones are often surrounded by women (except if they’re ugly, but they’re recruted in general because they are good-looking), while the female ones, well, either they’re hooked with their male counterpart, or they’re more detached from this. So, when you’re a woman and fell in love with an sport instructor there, you should consider this: you’re just another one in a long, long list of conquests. Don’t expect to start a love story with him.

Personally, I think those places are one of the worst if you’re looking for true love. But I know there are exceptions to this rules. What’s your opinion on this ?

Oh, and for those who missed Britney’s performance at the MTV VMAs, here’s the video.

A dlisted pornstar just got lost on the main stage of the show…
