It is finals week and I am working overtime at work to fill in for people with finals and trying desperately to complete my African Lit paper without letting it eat into my sleeping schedule. During work I finished reading the graphic novel Watchmen, which was incredibly good. Although I have only seen half of the film version, I would definitely recommend everyone read the book instead (although there are some really cool visuals in the movie). My mind seems to peter out after a certain amount of sleep deprivation, which means there is a good chance I will get up at 5:30 in order to finish the paper. I'm sure I've said this before but the mind needs rest. Science has yet to find a way around it. Hindsight 20/20: I've stayed clear of coffee this evening so that I won't capsize my sleeping.
And now, trailers for films I really want to see but simply haven't gotten around to watching yet...
Synecdoche, New York
The Diving Bell and The Butterfly
Also, Frost/Nixon, Iron Man, The Reader (becuase of the Nazis and the taboo sexual romance), and Lars and The Real Girl (less Nazis but possibly just as sexually taboo).
Classical music helps me focus but it's also making me a sleepy hedgehog. Why must I be tortured so?!
