My Summer, Part 5: Finland & DVDs & Infinite Sadness



Summer ends:

Day 29: Left Lkpg, went to Helsinki (it's in Finland) to visit a cousin (as I said I would). Bought her some vodka-filled chocolates as a gift. Watched I Heart Huckabees (2004) and drank some booze.
Day 30: Wandered around Helsinki, bought a couple of DVDs. Watched 8 Women (2002). Went to the pub, played some games. Met a gay man from Åland.
Day 31: Ate a disgusting pizza, which the Finns tried to make me believe was good (Finns have very bad taste). Watched my cousin's roommate move. Didn't help. Went to the pub, played some games.
Day 32: Bought a comic book for a friend's brother and mailed it to her (I mean the friend, the friend's brother is male). Left Finland, went to Sthlm. Stayed with the Mook for a day. Watched Holy Mountain (1973) and drank a couple of his father's beers.
Day 33: Went shopping in Sthlm (found two OOP collections of Miracleman on Söder - how bout that?), left Sthlm, went home to Falun. Watched The Birds (1963).
Days 34-37: Spent four days alone, mostly watching DVDs and drinking beer and reading comics. I watched the remaining episodes of Ugly Betty (2006-2007) and then I Heart Huckabees (2004) (again), The Magnificent Ambersons (1942), To Catch A Thief (1955), When the Wind Blows (1986), Ellie Parker (2005), Cherish (2002), Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me (1992), Requiem for a Dream (2000), Rear Window (1954), The Devil's Backbone (2001) and United 93 (2006). (I may review them all here on SUPERBLOG!! eventually.) Read John Woo's Seven Brothers Vol 1 and Osamu Tezuka's Buddha Vol 5 and 6 and 7, and Hellblazer: Original Sins.
Day 38 (today): My summer is over, which is why James Van Der Beek is looking sad. I'll pay some bills and cry and hope to die.

After I have paid my bills, i cry and hope to live. Maybe I'm fooling myself.

I was gonna post "witty" replies to all of your comments but I changed my mind just as I was about to click "Publish" because some of them felt strained.
