Lords of Dogtown

A Skate/Surf film set in the 1970s in California. Directed by Catherine Hardwicke.

I watched this film half way through and didn’t bother with the rest. There are many many critisisms a proper film critic could make (such as the awful cinematogrpahy) but to you and me, the main problem with it is it just plain Boring.

I never quite knew where the plot was going. The opening scenes were all about surfing and being nasty to the people who weren’t locals; so I thought it might be a story about that. The next minute there was a plot about some boys chosen for a skating team and oen kids was left out, so I thought the sotry might be about the outcast proving himself to get accepted; but that happened straight away. There was a vague story about his Mum being a bit weird and his Dad leaving, but it wasn’t a very interesting one. Then there was a huge bit of these kids skating round other people’s empty swimming pools.

Despite my interest in skating and surfing, this film was far too disorganised to keep my attention and I wouldn’t bother with it if I were you. I didn’t see the plot going anywhere and the characters weren’t interesting enough either.

Also, the promise of Heath Ledger is a false one, dispite his lengthy appearence in the trailers. Unless he has a huge part in the second half, in which case, I aplogise, but so far we saw him for about 40 seconds surfing right at the beginning.

I was very disappointed.

What it’s like to be an Introvert

I am of course, being slightly tongue-in-cheek, but I when I recently started getting into You Tube, I couldn’t believe how many people are giving their videos titles such as, ‘Coping with anxiety,’ and ‘My depression story.’ I couldn’t help but be a little cynical. Could this many people really be dealing with mental health issues, or has it just become a little fashionable? Then I considered two things…..

Approaching forty – Is it time to take out my piercings?
April 13, 2018
It has been on my mind for a while that maybe it’s time to take out some of the piercings in my face, and as I’m turning forty in a couple of days, I thought now would be a good time to do so! Over the years two other piercings have fallen by the wayside – I took out my belly-button ring when I was pregnant with Jude as it was getting in the way, and (rightly so) I felt my days of showing off my tummy in a crop top were over. Then about four years ago the ball on the end of my tongue piercing came off, and as I didn’t know what size to replace it with, I just took it out. Now don’t get me wrong; I’m a firm believer in wearing whatever the f**k you want, regardless of age, but there are a couple of reasons that have led me to think that it’s time for a change….
