I am obsessed with short films lately! This one is a series (which, like with books, I love).
These films follow a couple as they let games of Roshambo (Rock, Paper, Scissors) decide their fate.
Roshambo (Part 1)
Roshambo: Rock (Part 2)
Roshambo: Paper-Scissors (Part 3)
Yes, Requiem for a Dream is a crazy movie about addiction. That said, this is one of my favorite movie scenes ever. This moment between the two characters is so simple and real.
Personally I think it is impossible to watch this movie and not feel something.
Porcelainia is the art of Bob Jaber. This man has such a beautiful way of looking at art and loving what you create.
I love these quotes of his:
“It’s a personal thing, as art should be personal.”
“It’s not what you start with, or what you end up with. It’s what’s in the beginning and the end that’s the meaning of the whole act of creation.”
Spending twenty years combining your passions and doing what you love is a wonderful thing to aspire to.
“Yet this one fateful day, full of circumstantial commotion, a series of events were set into motion. And every small moment that happens to be may change your life’s meaning in just six degrees.”
Just one small change, even a tiny degree, and your life could be utterly changed for better or for worse. Not just your life, but the lives of those surrounding you. It’s such a scary, yet thrilling, idea. Can every thought, action, word spoken, change the course of your life or someone else’s so dramatically? How much of life is fate? How much is pure coincidence? How much can we truly control?
Watching these stories is an interesting way to see how much of our lives and actions are entwined with those around us.
What are your thoughts on fate?
“We cannot predict life’s utter unkindness.”
