Kalo mau nyari buku-buku drama lama: planetebook.com patut dicoba. I found Nietzche’s, Jane Austen’s, William Shakespeare’s, etc. Happy reading. :D
Inception vs Shutter Island
Karena hari ini gue kecapekan dan nggak ada kerjaan jadi akhirnya gue memutuskan untuk menonton dvd yang beberapa saat lalu gue beli, Shutter Island. Telat emang, but, better late than never right? *excuse* Nah, setelah ditilik lebih lanjut dengan tingkat ke-sotoy-an gue yang sangat tinggi, kok dilihat-lihat Shutter Island ini agak mirip yah dengan Inception? Tentunya selain pemeran...
10 Things I Hate About You
One of my favorite ‘teen-movie’ because it has a smart dialog (usually spoken by Kat). Yes, smart dialog is my first reason to love the movie or not. I hate the way you talk to me, and the way you cut your hair. I hate the way you drive my car, I hate it when you stare. I hate your big, dumb combat boots and the way you read my mind. I hate you so much it makes me sick — It even...
Words fail me...
I feel like posting something personal here, something I feel, but… as usual, words fail me… I can’t express this shitty feeling that trapped in my frozen heart. Maybe, if I found genie in the bottle one day, my wish will be, that I can spill what I -really- felt, out loud. Do you know how I envy those who can be that emotional? But, maybe word doesn’t fail me, I...
just like a slap in the face...
Do you know the feeling when you know that your wish won’t come true? You keep your mouth shut and bury the wish in your deepest heart. But, deep down inside, you secretly hoping that miracle does exist. And do you know how much it hurts when life finally shows you the evidence of how impossible is your wish? It felt like a mad-girlfriend-slap-in-the-face or a sumo’s-hard-smack. Yes,...
a piece of my mind: a labyrinth of discontent*
“I love Jakarta with all my heart.” “Serius? Kenapa?” “Macetnya, padatnya, polusinya, berjam-jam di jalan …” Aku langsung tergelak lagi. “I mean it, Sayang. Karena di Jakarta, semua orang berada in the state of trying,” aku ingat wajahnya yang passionate saat membahas hal ini. “Trying to get home, trying to get to work, trying to make money, trying to find a better sale, trying to stay,...
500 days of Summer (again!)
Tom: What happened? Why - why didn't they work out?
Summer: What always happens. Life.
Notes: Isn't Summer right? Oh, how much I want answer this to anyone who asked me; Why broke up? Why make up? It's a life, dude! Shit happens.
500 days of Summer
M: So, you have a boyfriend?
M: Why not?
S: 'Cause I don't want one.
M: C'mon, I don't believe that.
S: You don't believe that woman could enjoy being free and independent?
M: Are you a lesbian?
S: No, I'm not a lesbian. I just don't feel comfortable being anyone's girlfriend. I don't actually feel comfortable being anyone's anything.
M: I don't know what are you talking about.
S: Okay,let me break it down for you.
M: Break it down.
S: Ok. I, like being on my own. I think relationships are messy and people’s feelings get hurt. Who needs it? We’re young, we live in one of the most beautiful cities in the world; might as well have fun while we can and, save the serious stuff for later.
M: You’re a dude. [to Tom] She’s a dude!
T: Ok but wait–wait. What happens, if you fall in love?
S: You don’t believe that, do you?
T: It’s love, it’s not Santa Claus.
Notes: another reason why I'm in love with 500 days of Summer, the dialog is sceptical yet funny, another word for smart.
Notes: McKenzie (M), Summer (S), Tom (T)
