i am going to be the greatest artist of the twentieth century

So I lied, there will probably still be regular updates even though I can’t get access to my desktop. It turns out that my laptop runs even faster and better than my desktop. So, to sum up, fast laptop = more downloads/uploads = more updates!!! Hmm... so much to tell... I FINIALLY finished all of my exams! Saw Art School Confidential (review below) and bought three books that I’ve wanted to read for-like-ever: The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde, To the Lighthouse by Virginia Woolf, and Brideshead Revisited by Evelyn Waugh. ...Ha, that is all and there is actually not that much to tell, oh well.

Ok, I cannot stop thinking and talking about Art School Confidential... I absolutely loved the movie!!! Maybe because I’m into the whole "art" thing and that I share similar views about art and artists as the writer. I felt like I was in the movie, or at least knew the characters or have experienced many situations in the film. I can sooooo relate to the lead character: the same passion for Picasso and the whole trying to find my own style thing... and oh so many more (sigh!), but I don’t want to give the movie away. Art School Confidential is real (to a certain sense), and it is full of ironies. The film could have been extremely bad, with its cliché characters and eventually cliché plot, but those are just some of the elements that support the whole ironic thing. And the same cliché characters and the somewhat cliché plot also helped create some extremely funny scenes. The only problem I have is the pacing of the movie: the first half of the movie is beyond funny, while the second half is somewhat serious. Well, that's all I want/can say about the movie, go see Art School Confidential asap, it is my favorite movie of the year so far!
