V I E W

by Caja in Misc

Inside Malmö Konsthall (Art Gallery). I was really more interested in the building behind the windows and the architectural view than the work of art below it (it's different spices and such inside those panels below the windows) but a person working there told me it was forbidden to take photos (which I didn't know). I told her I took a photo of the next building (xD) and took a move of showing the photo but she backed away and said it was ok. I had one try, this was it.

      Wow. That's a long list! I like... all the ones you mentioned really. Except for the ones: Almost Famous and Les Amour Imaginaries (which is french :D I'm exited now :D), Those two are new to me... O.O

      Apr 13th, 2011 Reply
    • Caja

      Caja

      Oh! You should definitely watch both of those. Almost Famous is about a boy (he's 15-16) who joins a band on their tour during (60-70s or something) and he gets to meet the groupies and all that. Ok, it sounds boring when I put it like that but it's awesome!

      Second movie is not a Hollywood movie but is made by a new up and coming director called Xavier Dolan. Here you can see more of the movie: http://www.lesamoursimaginaires.com/ The man is pure genius and it's just worth watching it because of the camera angles and music and... well, you'll see if you watch the trailer on the site.

      lol, if you say so then I will. :D and no , it wasn't boring. But the fact that he's 15-16 kinda makes me go meh... :

      Xavier... the name for sum reason is kinda cliche. Izze french? lol, again, I'll watch it cuz you said so.

      so you're not a romantic movie type of person?

      Haha, why meh on that? He's just one of the people, the best ones are the groupies and specially one which plays a main part.

      I think he's either French or Canadian (French part). ;)

      Haha, almost all movies I have just told are mostly romantic ones, for example Amelie and Dirty Dancing and Les Amour Imaginaires is all about love. :P What kind of movie person are you?

      haha yeah, I figured.

      Me? I'm .. a mix! :D
      I don't like just one particular 'type' <.< I'd rather expand on my choice. Hmmm. romantics, comedies, horror (this girl i used to go out with preferred horror... I'm just a tad concerned O.O), and things like Vanity Fair :3. Oh! and dance movies...

      I guess it's because I'm exposed to a lot of different lifestyles and personalities. So I'm like a mix...

      Haha, you never responded to the meh part of him being 15-16 :p And I still say, see the movie and you will understand why it's so good.

      Aren't we all? I usually mix depending on my mood or the weather, I can get this very strong urge to look at Disney movies when it's rainy outside. I have no idea why, I hadn't when I was a kid.

      Haha, why concerned. Horror movies can be nice but I don't like the obvious scare movies, a psychological horror movie on the other hand then I will get trouble sleeping haha.

      haha! I did too. I think it's what Disney does to ya. I did it to cheer up tho ^.^

      I'm concerned because she was a horror fanatic... Although I did like it when she'd be scared and bury herself in my arms >.>
      All I'm saying is that she's awesome, but I'm wondering how she got the knack to WANT to see scary movies.

      btw the oddest thing about her is that sometimes she'd be the easiest to scare. Just pop up from behind, or tap her on the shoulder and she'd jump. (maybe cuz of the movies but) When I'd be scared, she'd be all calm and cool. Thus making me feel like the girl >.<

      Nope, if I want to know something and I am curious I can be very stubborn. And it's not like one of those teenage movies where it ends all happy with the boy getting the girl or vice versa. The plot: A high-school boy is given the chance to write a story for Rolling Stone Magazine about an up-and-coming rock band as he accompanies it on their concert tour.

      Haha, she seems like a cool girl :D I like her.
      Some years ago I was watching a movie called Event Horizon (if I remember correctly) which is really creepy. First boy loves it, second boy had nightmares after seeing it several years before. I sat in the middle so first guy (whom I had a crush on) comforted me and I comforted the second one :D Worked flawlessly except that the second guy made me more jumpy and scared, haha!

      Odd is good ♥

      Event Horizon huh? I like the name! I might see it ~.~

      Haha, the two must have known that you liked nameless person # 1. well... enough to have had the guy you liked comfort you :D
      Haha! I can't see you jumpy at all you know? All I see is that calm face and a graceful disposition. O.O... I can't imagine you any other way. And if you were to get scared, in my mind's eyes I see you saying "Oh my... that's horrible." or "Dear lord that guys is fugly!" >.<

      I don't mean any harm buy I think that the second guy is weird... I thought all guys had a stomach for horror O.O

      Oh, I sound like such a boring person, like someone who smells something bad and thinks a little bit too high about themselves.

      Now, now... aren't you a bit stereotypical? Think outside the box and then YOU can be outside the box and create outside it too. Instead of putting people into gender roles or how they should behave - like them for how they are with all kinds of problems, differences (no matter the gender) and loveliness. See past the norm.

I see you as the fun type :P I didn't say that you weren't normal, and neither did I say that you were. Pompous? No. Calm and collected? Definitely. All I'm saying is that I imagined you being scared differently compared to most people being scared O.O

      Yes, yes I am being stereotypical. (Next time I'll think the joke over before actually saying it >.>)

      I get your point, it makes absolutely perfect sense :)

      Well! You know that there are an increasing number of people who want to be normal or ' in the norm ' . Their philosophy is that there's no norm, so what we cal the norm is actually an original state of being. There are so many people who are trying not to be 'in the norm' that actually being normal is original. So (I know this is messed up... >.<) there's no difference O.O I agree with you tho. ^.^

      Haha, why only at home?

      I have quite odd friends, all of them are special in one way or another and I can't really say they're trying to be outside the norm or within the norm. Seems like a waste of time to try - no matter the direction. Seems better to just be the one you are or at least try to find out who you are :) Not than I think we can fully comprehend who we are, it's an ongoing quest for something that evolves every day.

      Only at home... hmmm... well I guess it's because I'm less social at skewl. I just have this thing where I tend to observe more at school and rock the TOK class but at home I'm completely different... I'm that quiet guy in the back of the class... no nerdy glasses, but makes sure he's heard.

      At home I give my parents no peace at all :P I make food for them, I talk to them a LOT! I just do things they wanna do for me... but only when it's convenient for me. My room's ... well... it's not odd for a teenage boy but it's a mess.

      I believe that we can understand who we are, but communicating our knowledge is an obstacle that makes us seem to 'not know who we are'. It's a very common issue, especially at my school.

      You cook for your parents? o.o My parents thought I couldn't cook at all (still think so actually, my mum the few times she has visited me have bought pizza and such) and the top most I've done is bake muffins which I ate myself >.>

      Haha, so, despite the mess, how does your room look like? *curious since you brought it up*

      Hm... I don't know who I am. I have way too many facets and layers. Even people have met me and known me for years don't always know. ;D We can communicate some parts about who we are but the inner most things which always evolve with every person, day, accident, experience, that is hard to put into words and hard to pin down without words too. Some of those things are things you see years after - sometimes not even that.

      O.O! now I REALLY wanna nom!

      lol yes. I have 3 wall actually. One wall is a glass... basically the whole thing is a window made of windows. I have a balcony, and a poster with a baby hugging a cat that says "I love everyone"... Since it's a rented house I guess the girl who had that room musta had the poster GLUED to the wall.. >.>

      My bed's a work of art :D It's a wooden marvel made out of stools that look like this under two mattresses and not-so-colorful sheets on top. With a VERY VERY VEERRRY plushy pillow at the head. I find it amazingly soft and comfortable... :3

      As you open the door to my room, the first thing you see diagonally to the left is a desk that has a huge mirror attached for some reason, cluttered with books. (I don't use the mirror much... or at all really...). As you take two steps in. Near behind the door, there's an old broken down HP desktop computer on top of a table. My room's like four meters by three point five. Pretty dull... Only because I can't paint the room and decorate it a tad =(

      When I still lived at home I had glowing stars in the ceiling. I couldn't afford a whole package of them (and couldn't find either) so I had like 3-4 of them but it always made me smile anyway (despite having a white ceiling).

      One day I would love to have walls where I can draw and doodle however I want, it sounds so much fun. To paint it all black... hm... seems depressing :)

      I had this one friend who everyone thought was weird. Why? Because he had RED HAIR! I was cool with it, but I got annoyed at the random conversations that go a bit like:

      Stranger: Hey!
      Me: Sup?
      Stranger: you know that guy you were walking around with earlier?
      Me: Yes.... I know of him (ya moron >.<)
      Stranger: Izze gay?
      Me: No.
      Stranger: Izze emo?
      Me: Yes...
      Stranger: OMG! So he cuts himself??!!
      Me: Why don't u ask him?
      Stranger: Cuz pple like him are disgusting and weird! I don't like talking to pple like him...
      Me: Really?
      Stranger: Yeah, like totally! I wouldn't even wanna be caught in the same vicinity with a person like him!!
      Me: So why are you talking to me?
      Stranger: O.O... >.>
      Me: Have a nice day... dick...

      Because of this, I started to wonder what people like my friend saw in certain things that made those things attractive to them.
      I saw it. Well... some of it. The night sky is a result of that :)

    Terrific composition. :) Art galleries should be helping art, not forbidding. But I guess that's the whole issue with copyrights, and if you have lots of photographers in a museum it can be distracting.
