Just because he is so gangster. I think that it does show the conflict that he must have gone through having hidden his true self for so long, and having tried so hard to show other people that he is tough and not vunerable. And then to thave his true self and feelings come back into the front and center of his ife. But I digress. Arrival was also a very good movie, and I think that it should definitely win best score. The soundtrack in that movie was amazing. But it is going up against Moonlight for best adapted screenplay, so I cannot pick it for that category.
The only other movie that I have a strong opinion sbout is Hell or High Water. That would be my favorite in original screenplay. I hope that Kubo and the Two Strings wins best animated feature film. I didn’t get a chance to watch it but from the previews that I saw I think I would have liked it a lot.
I just want Moonlight to win as many awards as possible because it deserves too. And while I don’t think that La La Land was a bad movie in any regard, I do not think that it should be getting as much attention as it is. I thought Whiplash was a much better movie, and it really is a shame that it didn’t get as much attention as La La Land is getting. I am glad that J. K. Simmons won best supporting actor for it, but it was tragically underappreciated.
Which is what I am worried about happening with Moonlight. I think they might just give it one award and think that that is enough. That is what is unfortunate about using awards as competitions. That causes movies that are amazing to lose out on recognition just because there was another movie that was equally just as good and got more votes. But that is what society has to do with everything. Pick which is best over all the others instead of what is best among all of them. Competition is very overrated. It does push people to better themselves in ways that they wouldn’t have otherwise, but for the wrong reasons and to the wrong end.
I wonder when ****** is going to wake up. She has been sleeping since I got home. I think that we could go to Spring Awakening. I think that it would be fun. I would like to go to a festival again. It has been a very long time since I have been to a festival. All I am trying to do is find out my Kay jewelers account number. I am on hold and have to keep listening to the same advertisement for amethyst.
I finally was able to get through to someone, and she was very nice and helpful. I was able to get my account number and register my account online. I also was able to update my mailing address, which I did not know was incorrect to begin with. But Kay had gotten some return mail that they had tried to send to me. I gave them the coreect address, which was missing my apartment number. After I got the account updated I was able to make a paymentand bring my account up to date. It was only for $85 for the minimum payment, and now I don’t have to worry about being late on my payments. Once I get my tax refund I am going to completely pay off the ring and that will be that.
With the rest of the money from my return I am going to pay for my tattoo, which I am getting on March 3. That will cost about two hundred or three hundred dollars according to the guy who is going to do the tattoo. His name is *** ***** and his work is really good. He does mandalas, which are really cool designs that are intricate shapes with a bunch of complex patterns. I am getting the tattoo on my elbow. I haven’t chosen which elbox I was going to get it on, but the more I think about it the more I think I am going to get it on my right elbow. I already have two tatttoos on my left arm, and I don’t want those two to get in to the way of the new one.
I’ve just got the one tattoo on my right arm, so I think there will be more than enough space for the new tattoo. I’m thinking about having *** redo my sparrow tattoo also, because I am a little disappointed in it. I’m not sure how much that would cost but I don’t think it will be more than the tattoo on my elbow. I’m also getting another tattoo from a different artist I think in Augusut or September. His name is ****** ****** I think. I’m not certain that is his last name, but I know that is his first name. He works at **** ***** Tattoo, which is another shop here in Des Moines. I do really like the artwork that he does, but I’m a little pt off with how long it takes to get in to get a tattoo done by him. Maybe that is for the best, because it gives me more time to think about it and to save up enough money to pay for it without going broke. I am planning on having him do a half sleeve portrait of John Frusciante from the Red Hot Chili Peppers. The guy does really cool like cartoon style pictures of people. I don’t know if any of the pictures online of tattoos that he has already done are pictures f actual people, but they are still really cool and I think that it will look awesome.
