Day 38: Ba-Dass
Febuary 7th 2011
This is Renée, and she's my next door neighbor. Among her many positive traits are severe and unstoppable badassery, a fantastic sense of humor, and the ability to drive like the knows how to drive. Also, when she's not gun slingin' and looking dangerous, she can be a real sweety. This was taken yesterday during some of my procrastination studies in portraiture with nerf guns. :) I edited it a little to try my best to make it reminiscent of the 80s rambo movies.. grainy and saturated and filmy and whatnot.I like how it turned out.
Today was wonderful. I got up at 6:20, as per usual school days (every monday, wednesday, as those are my only days with classes) and proceeded to make a pot of coffee and shower, get ready, etc. Grabbed my hard drive and headed off to Creative Approach Printing to get my photography project on paper for the midterm critique which went marvelously. Meghan and I were two of three kids out of the 6 (out of 13) who showed up who actually got the assignment correct, so we win. I biked to CVS during class to get some writable CDs to turn my other files in to the teacher since he wouldn't accept drop-boxing of the files. Breakfast at JOs with Meghan, Desirée, and des's performing arts friend whose name escapes me. After that another shopping fun to CVS for cereal (frosted miniwheats - my favorite - and rice krispies to mix it up, and milk of course) and then home to crank out a painting homework assignment and an essay about where I live. Peer review in Composition, and then some mind numbing and sleep-creating babble about Carpe Diem and greek philosophers. Interesting stuff, but my mind just wasn't there for it. I then raced back to the dorms via bus to get my Kite, which just came in. Then I made it to the red bus just in time to have a relaxing ride to class and a nice chat with Kendra, who I didn't know very well before today. She forgot her headphones :( - Design class was nice. I got a decent start on my project due next monday, and then napped the last 10 minutes of class while waiting for the prof to come back and give us her parting words. It was an excellent school day overall. Upon my return, I ate at Scafe with Alex, meghan, josh, kahla, and ariel, and then hit the sack around 9 so that I could get up at 4 the next day! More on that in tomorrows picture :)
This is what was administered in Religion class...They gave it to the wrong girl. I'm the kid in class who I guess is an immature person, I laugh at words like "penis", "vagina", "intercourse", etc. Well this is our "textbook" for a few weeks....can you say akward? Well my chemistry teacher had her baby at around 4 am :) She had a baby girl ^-^ Mr.Lipani is our substitute for her entire maternity leave :D A backround info: I.love.him :D me and Thoushara swoon over him lol and we have to go to him for mandatory extra help due to poor grades :D (I saw him two periods in a row <3333333) Okay enough about that, I have some homework to do, that essay to write and a propaganda poster to create by Friday so I think it is best to end this....now :)
Song of the Moment: Blue Skies- Blackpool Lights
my best teacher essay
Starring in what is quite possibly the most moving double performance ever recorded on film (Time), Anne Bancroft and Patty Duke are remarkable in their OscarÂ(r)-winning* portrayalsof Annie and Helen. Ennobling and uplifting (Variety), this inspirational story of courageand hope is one of the finest works of art in the history of motion pictures (Boxoffice). Locked in a frightening, lonely world of silence and darkness since infancy, 7-year-old Helen Keller has never seen the sky, heard her mother's voice or expressed her innermost feelings. ThenAnnie Sullivan, a 20-year-old teacher from Boston, arrives. Having just recently regained her own sight, the no-nonsense Annie reaches out to Helen through the power of touchthe only tool they have in commonand leads her bold pupil on a miraculous journey from fear and isolation to happiness and light. *1962: Actress (Bancroft); Supporting Actress (Duke)
Patty Duke and Anne Bancroft had been playing their respective roles as Helen Keller and her teacher, Annie Sullivan, on Broadway for some time before director Arthur Penn (The Left-Handed Gun) built a mesmerizingly beautiful film around their layers-deep performances. Duke is astonishing as the deaf, blind, mute Keller, who awakens to an awareness of language under Sullivan's determined guidance. Bancroft is fascinating and focused. Penn wisely kept his adaptation unencumbered by cinematic indulgence. The black-and-white film is sparse and charged with the immediacy of the drama. The script is by William Gibson, who also wrote the original play. --Tom Keogh
