“When I’ll die,”
You said that jet black night
“I’ll come back from the dead to tell you:
The meaning of my life was loving you.”
I’m still waiting for you to come back.

he’s still so nice to me why do i deserve him?
I was dead. What would it be? The guillotine? Hanging? The chair? The rack? The Chinese water torture? Hmmm. Mere child’s play compared to what surely awaited me.
Loneliness and sadness. Primary feelings at the moment. It’s 1:51am currently. Watched Mank. Saw the sadness in a creative mind that felt that he fell short in situations that he should have come out on top of. The greatest minds can still get squashed at times. But if fierce enough, you can still say and express what you need to and come out ahead. Just try to take better care of yourself.

Releasing a movie both in cinemas and on streaming platforms is a very bad idea and let me tell you why:
I am eastern european - i don’t really know about other countries but in mine we don’t really have a strongly imposed law on pirating. Everyone and their mother do it. It is ten times easier to torrent a movie than to watch it on those shady online sites. Most of us don’t even use VPN. We did it before - when most movies were theatrically released. But there was a catch- if you wanted to watch this movie in good quality you had to either wait for the DVD release or go to the cinema because the first few torrents are always taken on a random dude’s phone. That’s how the movie theaters in my country didn’t die despite pirating sites being the first thing people turn to when they want to watch something. But now? Why should we go to the cinema when the only thing we need is one good person with a subscription to *insert any streaming platform* and boom - A WHOLE COUNTRY can watch these films. Most of the times we don’t even need people from our country to have something uploaded on the local torrenting sites. Since we don’t have some very large streaming platforms (Disney+ for example) there are good samaritans who go to foreign sites and the upload shit ton of stuff from there.
I don’t want movie theaters to die, especially in my country. But what this straight-to-streaming-platforms release means is that people will have less and less reasons to go to the cinema. And I completely understand them because why pay X amount of money (in our already poor economy) when you can watch it for free. Don’t get me wrong - I’m not judging anyone who’s doing this. I do it regularly as well. I can’t imagine having to pay for a certain movie on Amazon or some other site just to watch in once (and dislike it). But it’s the magic of the cinema I’m not ready to put behind. And the crash of a this already fragile industry will cost hundreds if not thousands of people their jobs. People who worked so hard to make this magic possible.

Jaws 1975. So well done considering the technology available in 1975. $9 million budget.
Directed by Steven Spielberg and based on Peter Benchley’s 1974 novel of the same name.
