If you haven’t seen the above movie, look into it. On my list of favorite movies, this one is in the top five (along with Almost Famous, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, The Virgin Suicides and Say Anything). I’ve read the book and it’s the only book I own where I have taken a highlighter to it. There are so many great things about this story and it’s based on the life of Christopher McCandless. This is the movie I go to when I need a reality check. It’s also the only Kristen Stewart project that doesn’t make me want to puke. This movie makes me want to give up everything and drift around the world, seeing different things and meeting different people. It affected the way I see things.
It also spawned the above song (another of my favorites). Eddie Vedder is responsible for the entire soundtrack to the film and it’s brilliant and beautiful and in some cases, haunting.
I’m bringing all of this up because I’ve had a lot to think about lately. At the moment I’m pulling down Free. I don’t know when I’m going to finish it and it features work by Scribeninja, who has left the fanfiction community. I had permission to post it but I feel weird about posting it now, especially given the way the story turns. Perhaps, at some point, I’ll finish writing it all on my own and I’ll make it available to you for downloading all at once. In the meantime, I have some solo work that I’m steadily working on with Wifey’s encouragement
whip cracking. I’m going to wait to post it until it’s finished so that I don’t get halfway through it and then it dies. I hate doing that. I just get excited about something and have to share it and then it dies.
I also have work banked up with Missy Dee. We just finished a story and have already begun the sequel for it, so I’m excited for you to read those because I’m a fan of this incarnation of Eric and Sookie we’ve been working with.
Anyway… give Into the Wild a chance if you can get your hands on a copy. It’s definitely worth watching.
