I’ve been gritting my teeth so hard in my sleep that it’s making my jaw feel infected again. Usually I sleep with my mouth open because of my cpap mask, but something is apparently making me not do that right now. My jaw is uneven. Technically I can only bite down on one side of my mouth at a time. The right side is the one I favor because it hurts if I bit down on the left very long. Why I’m doing it in my sleep is unknown to me. I got a bite plate thingy but it made me drool so much it woke me up, so it’s a pick your poison kind of situation. Anyway, it’s irritating. I think I might also have a sinus infection brought on by the inflammation of my jaw. Or maybe just contributing to it.
Heartbleeps is my favorite Andy Kaufman movie, I thought this was a reference to that but i guess it was not lol just a random thought!
I happen to like the film as well. It’s not oft remembered these days, but I think it’s his most timeless role.
Imagine Star Wars with no music… someone made an edit of the “throne room” scene where Leia gave medals to Han and Luke, with the John Williams music removed. It’s very weird and funny.
“Star Wars Minus Williams – Throne Room”
Yeah, I was just about to get all mad about that Star Wars crack, but then I realized he was right.
holy shit that was deep
*Looks at the last panel*
Man, to me, that’s a really sad story.
Then I told it properly.
The feels made me gasp, at the last panel. I hope it will be “Story Time”®, cause Jo might need some more back story.
It is one thing to have Cute in your wheelhouse, but it is something else to be able to take that and turn it up to ‘adorbs’. And Jo, Jo does that, without even trying.
Sure thing. Please pardon me if my comment has offended. The idea I was thinking of, when making my above comment, was- I’m very surprised.
Today, Jo is being very deep, + emotional,…sad, + relate-able.
Most fiction authors, like you, can’t write characters that are as touching + as deep as your characters.
Just to clarify- imo, there are a lot of fiction writers, and most can’t write as well as you do.
Not at all. I was just confirming my intent. She has moments of quiet introspection and sadness that she shares with people she loves.
Cool. Thanks. :)
An example of a good film ruined by crappy soundtrack music: “Goldeneye”. I’d love to have ’em go back and have David Arnold rescore it properly.
Fun fact, the composer for Goldeneye is the same one as for Neverending Story. The score reuses several musical cues from Goldeneye to the point people accused him of just recycling the music.
I knew a guy who had a music major.
His joke was something like: “How did John Williams write the music for Raiders of the Lost Ark?
Easy. He just turned the written tune for Star Wars upside down.”
( Heh, heh. They DO sound kinda similar.) :D
Ya know that if you turn the sound off, Palpatine isn’t scary, just ugly (as the Emporeur). It’s the sound Fx and the leit motif that does it, the fear thing.
Is the title a reference to the Andy Kaufman film in the 80’s?
Even if it isn’t, you should probably watch it for the fact that it was probably one of the weirdest roles that Kaufman has ever done.
It’s actually the role I like him best in.
Equally important for video games. The best example of this I’ve ever encountered was “Enter the Matrix.” One of the first bits in the game is basically a chance to reenact the lobby scene from the first movie, and it would be awesome… except the music is generic and boring. And later in the game, there’s a horribly long sewer part. Mostly boring as hell… except for one part where a really good song (forget the name) comes on, and suddenly the generic bullet-time combat becomes FUN! And then the music ends and it’s boring again.
If you can get it for cheap, ETM is an interesting experience for any Matrix fan. Play it with cheats on.
Have you tried a gumshield? I used to grind my teeth In my sleep but got a boxing gum shield.
That’s what I was using more or less. It’s specifically made for sleep but basically the same thing.
“In the rhythm of a heartbeat, music is begun.”
I love that song, and coming across the same idea here is cool. Brooksie’s version is much more melancholy, but it’s still nice to see…
There’s two musicians brooksie and Reggie, so they could make a band!
