King of the World by MagpieOGrimoire King of the World by MagpieOGrimoire
I saw The World's End yesterday! :D It was a really entertaining movie with brilliant fight scenes and I loved Gary King XD He stood out so much from his friends that ... gosh isn't he just fanartable? XD I bet Simon Pegg had loads of fun with that trench coat XD Listened to a load of appropriate songs while working on this, but the one I listened to the most was I'm Free by Soup Dragons - I think that best suits Gary's character

Yep yep I really liked the film, though I found it rather different to the first two in the Cornetto Trilogy (Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz). I guess after nine years since the first film came out, this final one has grown into something more mature - at least it's theme is focusing on something more serious. Yep once again they're making a commentary on society - and Cornettos - but I do feel sad for the main character. Everybody loses something of themselves, but in this film you don't really know who's loss has been for the better.

Nevertheless I absolutely loved this film, and is an interesting end to the trilogy XD I would love to watch it again :D Time to do the Golden Mile with all the cinemas in London :D

Curiously the movie hit me in a completely different way. First up I loved it and have since obtained the score/soundtrack for it - secondly I found it all too easy to identify with Gary King as (as sad as this sounds) I'm a real-life version of King, yep, ex-pub crawling forty-seven year-old dead-beat who frankly wishes I was in my early twenties again. Watch out, it could all so easily be any of you - and only time will tell, but like Gary I always wanted the party to go on and on and on with never ending drinking songs, beer swilling and if possible, killing blanks in the bathroom (or anywhere else for that matter!) Whey-heyyy! And you know, when you grow up someplace and come back to it, it IS different - nobody recognizes you, sometimes the familiar faces are all gone and even the shops are different. Must get this in before I stop tying - THIS, this is absolutely brilliant art! A must-have! Scary, it reminds me of ... err, me at that age. Make the most of being twenty as it all too quickly doubles and ... well, people turn VANILLA all too quickly!

Yep I absolutely loved the soundtrack for the film :D discovered some new songs to listen to XD And thank you for telling me that :) it's interesting to hear your side to the film, I guess Simon Pegg went through a similar experience if he could make it so relatable. Sounds like you had loads of fun though :> I'm not quite the going-out type so I fear I've missed out on a lot of things XD but I'll make the best memories that I can! THank you :>

Well, I cherish my memories of my twenties and unless I catch a glimpse of myself in the mirror (OMG, whose that fat ****) I think just as I did when I was that age. Now some might argue that I'm 'sad' (or whatever term is common usage now to describe the same state) but I assure you it will happen to every reader here. A couple of months back I was abused by some teens at a local mall and I took immense pleasure in informing them that it was only a matter of time before they too were the ones being abused. It IS that scene in the gents in which King informs the teenager that his generation paved the way for the younger one - and I suspect that it how it feels. Life experience is a wonderful thing, only spoiled by the fact that as we get older our bodies let us down. Meanwhile, squatting atop of our shoulders is a perfectly decent brain, armed with a lot of experience and wisdom, yet it is human nature, and a youthful one to assume the older generation were never with it. You know, I cannot ever thinking that I was ever 'with it' but like the tag-line in the movie all I ever wanted (and still want) is to be free and to have a good time - and in as far as I can, I do. I hate the sight of myself now ("My god, I'm so cute!") but my twenties pictures were actually pretty damned handsome. Anyway, I could rant on and on, but you don't want to hear that.

One bit of advice - being inside is great, it's amazing, but it's losing touch with the world. I've climbed volcanoes in New Mexico (they were not active), mountains in Colorado and walked the sands of a desert in California. I have walked the baked shores of North Africa and survived the frozen tundra of Alaska, and if nothing else it proved one thing to me. This is an amazing planet we all live on. GO SEE more of it before it's too late!

The future is hard to deal with since you only live in the present then suddenly that future is a past and you're not quite sure what happened. Time waits for nobody XD But since the present is the most ... engaging I guess, the distant future isn't always the biggest priority. Coming to terms with somebody else's present possibly one day being your future is a difficult thing to chew on, and I've had to do that a lot recently. I mean, the future I want takes a lot of work, which is mostly why I'm an inside person, working away at multiple things, which is stressful but I have to believe I'll get more out of it than if I went out drinking with my peers. I've never been good with free time - I've always had to fill it up with making stuff - thus I'm an artist XD

You sound like you've achieved a lot of things you wanted to do :) Yeah you're right, staying inside does make you lose touch with the world, and I've suffered some of that in projects that have demanded a lot out of me, but with friends I've met recently, I've made myself travel much more than ever in the past two years. They're not in such exotic places, but I'm sure once I'm finally out of education I'll be able to go a bit further. For now though it's building up enough ammo to hit the future I want to get :) If I'm going to be a sad old person in the future, it's going to be done in style B-)
