Movies on the Mind

Song Lyric of the Day:

Interruptions are always on my mind / Interruptions you know I’d like to unwind / And I do have the time / Said I’d like to unwind / But I’m out of the lonely

Rogue Wave / “Interruptions“*

Today I fully intended to blog about the results of whittling my way through the massive TIFF (Toronto International Film Festival) catalogue. As it turns out, it’s been exhausting whittling my way through the massive TIFF (Toronto International Film Festival) catalogue. Since I received my OOTTSS (Out-of-Town Ticket Selection Service) FedEx package the other day, I’ve been cramming like I haven’t crammed since college. Every free moment at work (basically just over lunch), I’ve been reading movie descriptions. Every evening after work, I’ve been reading movie descriptions. And I finally whittled the massive choices down to 29 movies over my seven full days in Toronto. Only to find out today that my Midnight Madness tickets do not count toward my 30-movie total. Which means I will have about seven movie tickets waiting for me when I get there. And I’m OK with that — it’ll give me a bit of leeway to choose movies I may not otherwise have chosen to watch. All but ensuring I’ll likely come home blind. And maybe deaf.

Time allowing, between my sister’s birthday celebration, visiting my in-laws’ house, and finally seeing Transformers 2 (I may be going to my first film festival, but I’m anything but a movie snob), I will try to post my planned film festival schedule this weekend. Or I may just give my eyes a rest in preparation for dozens of hours of stargazing.
