summer viewing...

at this precise moment in time when i ought to be revising for a resit, nothing seems more imperative than making lists of all the movies i plan to watch with my friends this summer. below is part (yes, only part) of my list so far. if you haven't seen any of these movies i would definitely encourage you to do so. every single one of these movies is awesome in some way or another and i can't wait to rewatch them with old friends and introduce them to new ones.

the holy mountain, grey gardens, taxi driver, moonwalker, rec., my neighbour totoro, alice.

the last one, alice by jan svankmajer, i am particularly excited about. i have only ever watched it online before...but a friend of mine recently picked up the dvd. as i'm sure you can tell it is an alice in wonderland adaptation...and definitely the best i have ever seen. it manages to be simultaneously creepy (just look at those screenshots) and beautiful. everything about it is fantastic!! the point...has anyone got any movie recommendations for me?? most of you who read this blog seem to have pretty similar taste to mine when it comes to this kind of stuff, so i would really appreciate some input. i'm trying to make a list to end all lists. :]

yeah, moving back to ballycastle when i graduate, cant believe uni is actually over it scary!my parents have offered to put me up for free rent and food over the summer so i can try and pay off some of my overdraft lol. im excited, but also nervous, i mean i love where i live and miss good pubs and beaches but i think im a city gal at heart and need to get away so thankfully i'll be moving to london in the fall. so envious of you though, being abroad!do you miss home at all?
