Post Beau's Spirited Shenanigans

Image


Hello. I am Beau. I write stuff. When I write stuff, I will post it here or link it here or mention it here or do something here that alludes to the fact that I wrote stuff. This is very elegant and even harmonious. I told my neighbor and he agreed that it was harmonious. He hummed in approval. His dog ran straight to the backyard. I don't know what that means in dog language. Rest assured, though, the only language that will be spoken here is English. We might get some Spanish, but I will probably translate it. Unlike the previous iteration of my rambunctiousness, this will not pretend to be just about films. In truth, the previous iteration of my rambunctiousness was not actually just about films, but it pretended to be so through its cinematic title. Now the subject matter will be concerned with spirited shenanigans, which are eclectic in their choice of topic. This is very good and honest. I didn't ask my neighbor what he thought about this part, but I am certain that he would have approved. Anyways, I hope you enjoy this place. It's going to be difficult to define, but really: it's the text, it's the tone, it's the pictures, it's... the vibe of the thing!

There are so many homosexual overtones to Majora's Mask. It's a lot of fun.

I have had Ocarina of Time and Majora's Mask for quite a long time now, but never got around to playing them. I did get out the N64 recently to play Wayne Gretzky's 3D Hockey (which I highly recommend to anyone with a N64). I suppose I should play them.

I've been meaning to replay the N64 Zelda games for a while. I'm pretty sure one of my roommates has them around here somewhere, since he has an N64 in his room and a triforce tattooed onto his torso.

My first thread on RT was disastrous. I berated people for dividing cinema into "indie films" and "commercial films" and then I said something like: "Welcome to the Dollhouse is a good indie film but what other good indie films are there?" HAMMEROGOD immediately made a new thread with advise for me. This is better thus far.

Beau writes really good reviews. Not even reviews, to be honest. More like mini-essays without an essential thesis. I say that because he employs far more analysis than a reviewer does, and usually through various theoretical lenses. I like that about Beau. Sadly, a lot of his reviews I bookmark in the middle and don't end up finishing because, in general, I'm a very lazy person. This has nothing to do with the content of his reviews. It's just me.

Thanks. I hope to write a mini-essay without an essential thesis for Three Days soon. Also Nostalghia. Maybe even together! I don't know. I don't want to say any more because every time I say I'm going to do something I don't do it and then I watch some movie I didn't even think I was going to watch and I write a long review on a sudden whim and people are left wondering: "Bu... what about this other review you promised?" I'm sure you emphasize.

EDIT: Also, I like your Vitti by way of Scorsese by way of The Great Train Robbery avatar.
