Gates of Mist and Ruin
I’ve been in a post-apocalyptic mood lately, due primarily to the Comic-Con trailer for Mad Max: Fury Road (God, it looks so fucking good), so I felt like writing a little poem-thingy that I’ve been thinking about over the past few days while listening to a couple choice songs to help spur up some inspiration. I wanted it to be a bit longer but I couldn’t remember some of the lines I had originally thought up so this is the best I could come up with. I guess that will teach me to write things down if I want to remember them. Enjoy!
I see the light break through the window
And I see in the dark
And I hear the people hark – The culling of the night
And I hear the violent wind
And I hear the children cry
And I see the people die – Caught by the widowmaker
And as the birds feast the flesh
And they pick at the bone
I watch from the castle of stone – And wait for it to end
I was gonna wait until tomorrow (today?) morning, but fuck it! Have a TMO on me! Alexia says what we have all been wanting to say. Check out those sexy new word bubbles. Yeah. Super nice, right? You know how your ass can learn to make them? Trial and error probably, but, if you want faster info, donate to >A and K’s patreon< to see a tutorial on how! OOO! SHINEY!
Yay! New Page! Also, dat red/blue contrast.
I’m sad that part of the ending of Oldboy was basically spoiled for me because I read an offhand joke about the remake on a Reddit thread, and that I was able to figure out the rest during the movie because of it, but I’m glad that I was still able to enjoy the movie.
That’s not always the case for me with stories. Sometimes, if part or all of a story is spoiled for me, I just don’t bother, because without the genuine “Wow Factor” that comes with a fresh, first-time viewing experience, I tend to think, "Well, now I know that THAT’S going to happen, what’s the point in watching it?” It was still really good, it’s just that because I already knew what was going to happen, I don’t have that extra bit of admiration for it like other people do.
At least I can still admire the hallway fight sequence and how incredible well shot it was.
What a great scene.
Laugh and the world laughs with you. Weep and you weep alone.
