I was watching Pulp Fiction again last night. It's been awhile since I saw it, and I never really got why people made such a big deal about Travolta and Thurman in that... why there was such an emphasis on their interaction, because I never saw much going on there. But watching it last night I saw a lot more than I had before and now I *get it* a bit more.

I also watched a making of thing about Sleepy Hollow, a movie I wasn't really impressed by. I'm still not impressed by it, but the work that went into the make up and decapitation effects is impressive.

I keep writing and then backspacing out a paragraph about my feelings this past week and how alone I feel and have been made to feel, but nothing really comes out right. And I don't know why I want to say anything in the first place. It's decidedly pointless.

I keep picking up a few books I have by Don DeLillo, but I can't get more than a few pages into them before I have to stop reading again. I'm not sure if it's his style or his content or what... but it's very very difficult to read his work. My brain doesn't flow along the same way or... well... something.
I only picked these books up becuase Dan swore that I would like him.
That's what I get for listening to Dan.

I'm really hoping the hours pick up drastically at work. Otherwise, it's really not worth working there at all. *really*... for that little pay per hour for 13 hours a week? no. As it is, I dunno when I'll be seeing anyone I actually care about. Probably not for many months. ::shrug:: just as well.

I think I'm going to watch some movies again today, work on my little projects, maybe clean a bit.

I *think* you'd like DeLillo, but i wouldn't swear on it cuz that's not the Xian thing to do...

I liked White Noise quite a bit. I only got 40-50 pages into Libra before putting it down the first time. My second attempt was far more successful and i did enjoy it. Chuck would love that book, being the anti-government conspiracy theorist that he is.

Those are the only two DeLillo novels i've read, since those were the two recommended to me by my excellent German history prof. I'll eventually get around to tackling Underworld, but only when i'm in the proper mood and have the time to do so.

See, White Noise is the one I am having problems with. Something about his style makes it difficult for me to get into. I haven't tried to read Libra (though I have it and The Body Artist) yet because, well, Dan reccomended White Noise to me as the one I would dig the most (and he was probably right on that at least) and I just can't get into it.

I usually kind of *like* a disjointed style, but there isn't anything intriguing enough going on to make me want to follow along for the pay off.
I've picked it up and given up on it 3 times now, several months apart.
I tried again yesterday and it just *annoyed* me, instead of just leaving me cold...

of course, that could just be my own state of mind. ::nods::
