Reservoir Dogs (****)

It is hard to think that this movie came out in 1992, wow time flies. The first time I saw this movie it was thanks to my friend Biggie. It was sometime in 1996 and I remember it changing a lot about what I think about movies. This movie kind of introduced me to dialogue that was witty and made a movie flow.

Starring Harvey Keitel, Tim Roth, Michael Madsen, Chris Penn, Steve Buscemi, Lawrence Tierney, Randy Brooks, and Kirk Baltz. Quentin Tarantino’s debut cult classic chronicles a jewelry heist gone wrong. (Miramax Films)

If you have not watched this movie in a while rent it, is on DVD now and I have not laughed this hard in a while. The movie is just pure joy. I have liked Tarantino a lot more since he was instrumental in bringing Hero stateside. I hope that it keeps on opening the door for Asian films to get out here.

Besides the good dialogue, Reservoir dogs has a great story line and just awesome acting. Sometimes I wonder if Tarantino is just lucky that he can put that much talent in one room or if he is just that good of a director that he makes every actor seem that much better. So have you seen the movie? Do you enjoy it?

Life is good

I firmly believe that we need the downs in life to know recognize the ups. Right now my life is on the way up, getting higher every day. Not only did I find love, but I have also developed a sense of home here in Michigan. Even though I still love Chicago very much, I like living out here. It is quiet, peaceful and I have surrounded myself with some cool people.

I think volunteering for the read program has helped me tons. I feel like I am making a difference by helping kids and find it extremely rewarding. For next week I think I might make a couple of puzzles for them, as in word soups with what they are studying or something similar. Both of the kids that I am working on seem to like that kind of activity.

Today I have ASL class, also something that is changing my life. I have wanted to do this for so long and getting the opportunity to finally do it feels awesome. I hope I continue without a break, which reminds me I have to check out the winter schedule.

I also have to admit that this blog has helped me a lot, at first I wanted it to be just an outlet to my mood in a very private way… but as more people started reading and giving me some excellent advice I liked that aspect of it a lot more. I have made some great friends here and it has helped more than therapy :)

A Gift From The Sky

Gift from the Sky

As I looked up at the sky
I never imagined that I would find
Even if I did try
The love that I had in mind

But soaring towards me
It landed by my side
Slowly it embraced me
And it filled me inside

A love so tender and sweet
A felling so fresh and new
That it makes my heart skip a beat
And gives life a whole new view

A love that I thought never existed
Now lives inside of me
A love that cannot be resisted
Has now set eyes on me

In this sea of flowers
It graced me with its presence
And now adoringly it showers
Everything I am with its essence

This love is so complete
Because it gives itself freely
There is no time to compete
Only living life ideally
