The Purpose of Our Purpose.

I don’t often go too deep into the spiritual side of things on here. Sure, I’ll mention that I’m more spiritual than religious, and I have probably more often than once mentioned how I felt like I’d stepped off my path and was looking for a “sign” to help me get back onto it, but only once have I gone seriously into my religious/spiritual beliefs.

Today I want to revisit some of the things I spoke about in the post about Predestination

Predestination-CoverFirst of all, that post was inspired by the movie Predestination and I still whole-heartedly believe that if you haven’t seen that movie, you really should! It is the biggest mind-fuck movie I’ve ever seen, plus it pretty much proves (at least in the case of one character) that some things are predestined to happen. It is a Science Fiction movie, but it has a very interesting love story, and (minus the jumping through time bit) feels like it could be a slice-of-life movie in spots, as one character gives us his really bizarre life story about growing up in the 50’s and 60’s.

Basically I’m trying to tell you that I think even people who aren’t fans of Science Fiction could enjoy this one… Then again, I’ve been wrong on that particular topic before.

For me, this movie is most important because it makes me wonder about my own purpose. Continue reading The Purpose of Our Purpose.

The Ultimate Break Up Playlist.

I was inspired to share my “Relationship Rewind” Playlist from Spotify because of a gentleman who came up with a particularly awesome idea: he created a playlist for a very famous character: Scarlett O’Hara.

I reblogged his post (and now I’ve linked to it as well…I was really impressed with this idea), and it got me to thinking: what makes a good Break-Up playlist?

I happen to have one. When things imploded with the Boy last year, I started compiling a list of songs that were equally love and hate, get-together and break-up songs. As it evolved, I had over 80 songs on there, but listening to it was more schizophrenic than empowering, so I’ve separated the love songs out of it and shared it here: Continue reading The Ultimate Break Up Playlist.

What’s On Scarlett O’Hara’s Playlist?

Because fictional characters need playlists to help get over break-ups, too.

101 Books

It’s time for another literary character playlist using Spotify!

Today, let’s look at what everybody’s (least?) favorite fictional southern diva might listen to, were she alive today and actually real.

I’m talking about Scarlett O’Hara.

She’s a strong, opinionated, feminine character who, usually, gets what she wants—including whatever man she wants. But she can be a softy too, and I think this playlist reflects her character well.

There’s the “screw you” vibe in Alanis Morrisette’s “You Oughta Know,” but there’s also the “I miss you and love you so much” vibe from Adele’s “Someone Like You.” It’s mostly mainstream, top 40 style music, because I think that’s what Scarlett would be in to. No obscure indie college bands here.

Basically, this is a playlist of break-up songs–because between Rhett and Ashley it seems Scarlett’s got more man troubles than mostly. And a lot of it is her fault.

See what…

Beauty at Any Color

My roommate has a habit of introducing me to movies that I wouldn’t normally consider watching. The one that she had me watching til the wee hours of the morning this time was well worth the watch! I don’t think I’d heard of it until she turned it on, but I’m glad she did.

Warning: Spoilers beyond this point! Continue reading Beauty at Any Color
