Ah, that wonderful time of year where everything piles up at once.
I just turned in two papers for the same class within a day of each other. One was a ten page research paper comparing sexuality in 70's American horror and 70's Italian horror. The other was a five page paper explaining how Mikel J. Koven's La Dolce Morte is an excellent source for my ten page research paper.
Proud of myself considering the research paper though. I managed to write 1000 words of it in under two hours right before class. I would say God Bless AMP energy drink, but that stuff is the devil and should only be taken in moderation.
Yesterday I had to take an obviously much needed break. Between the paper on Tuesday, and work that night, I was totally spent. Coworkers were telling me to go home and get some rest. I really must've looked like shit. Ended up taking a nap while doing laundry, and my body thanked me for every extra minute of rest.
Anyhow, I used the four-hour break between classes today to write my proposal for next semester's independent study. May have bitten off more than I can chew. But considering I only have one other class at a time, I oughta be able to pull it off.
Considering taking my professor's advice and mixing giallo with a "more profitable" genre for this new screenplay. So that might be my next project (romantic comedy still going on, too). I remembered an old sci-fi concept that I always kept on the back burner because I'm not much of a sci-fi fan. But I figured out how to use that concept to cleverly disguise my giallo aesthetics into something with sequel potential. Because how many giallo movies have sequels? (Nothing Underneath doesn't count)
Since I have a lack of sci-fi knowledge, I proposed adding a Film Series of some sci-fi movies to acquaint myself with some movies that I think are similar to what I want. Mainly Strange Days,and eXistenZ (which I have seen).
Which leads me to ask: What do you guys think of Strange Days? Would you see another movie with similar ideas?
Okay. I'm gonna fart around for another half hour. Then off to 70's class!
