The Autobiography of Russell
Life from a different perspective

It's my life; choices
I am thoroughly disgusted by DVDs that refuse to do what I want. I just want to watch the movie, screw the previews, production intro, and even the title screen. Most of the time they don't do it completely so I can get around it by fast-fowarding, skipping to the next chapter, or going to the root menu. On rare occasion I have to wait through the legal warning, the production company introduction, and another 10 seconds for the root menu introduction to play. ... Thus why I like Linux because I can do what I want.

The movie in question is Shelter, which I've found to be very good (beyond the above points). The romance is very sweet and the characters don't act overly stupid (They have a brain and they use it, mostly). Some of the lingo is out of my league but it's not done too much. I'm actually watching it again (which is why the above points annoyed me quite so much). I do think Shaun looked better with his hair almost shaved than when he grows it out at the end scenes, but that's a minor gripe.

I still think owning Tomb Raider I && II kills my gay creds (not that I have any), even with Legally Blonde sitting under it and Touch of Pink on the rack above it. They're fun movies, though.

... I sometimes wonder why Acer bothered to make two keys on my laptop specifically for € and $ (both above the left and right arrow keys). Oh well, whatever.

We just watched Shelter last week, I thought it was one of the best cheesy gay indie films I've seen. The good thing about Shaun's hair growth is it lets you know time has passed.

Using your brain when you're madly in love is very difficult.

Usually the part that people stop using their brain is when they try to screw their female best friend or push away the guy they were just with. This one had a little bit of both but they gave the female a brain to use as well and the drama with the love connection was minimal and well handled for the situation.

Speaking of madly in love, one thing I've noticed in a lot of the movies is the moment when the two realize how they feel about each other and the mutual extreme passion expressed. There's a moment when they're completely oblivious to everything around them and are simply too busy kissing and trying to rip each others cloths off. Ahhh..... *sighs dreamily*
