Current obsessions..

I'm on a movie collecting spree nowadays. I'm inspired by sites like listverse, imdb, time etc. to seek out movies that have been voted among the top 100 movies of all time. However, i only download those that are not too serious or philosphical or stuff that makes you think life is meaningless and all that shit. My romantic, mushy days are long gone so no uve got mail, sleepless in seattle or walk in the clouds for me though i did enjoy moments from those movies once upon a time. As i touch 34, i realize that my sensibilites have changed, my perceptions are different, i'm growing slightly bald and i'm just about managing to keep my tummy in control. However, my goal in life remains just the same. I'm still clueless about where i'm headed and where i'll end. Somedays i think about getting into the movies, another day i wanna play the keyboard and start a lousy band but then again i reflect on the dog farm i plan to own or the rock pub whose management will have me as their boss in good ol' sector V back in town. So all in all, i'm really a confused creep really. But then again, i guess i like these aimless days, i do still have weed once in a while and booze, well, ahem..once a week and that one day, i go beserk with the bottle really only to have the lousiest saturday morning ever!!
Burgess Hill is a sleepy town. Nothin' ever happens here. There's a mall called Martlets which has a few shops you can buy groceries at, a decent enough library that lends you books for free to pass your days, a pound shop to satisfy the meagre pocket and a KFC and pizza shop to top it up. There are a couple of pubs and chinese eateries but i haven't gotten around to them yet. Office and work is nothing to boast about. Home is about 10 mins walk from work which is generally a decent trip if it doesn't bloody rain or blow. There's a decent enough park which i have to cross on the way and towards the evening there are young turks floating around on roller blades and in the mornings, people on their morning walks with various interesting breeds of dogs. The saving grace is a wine shop that's close to my house and a fellow who lives downstairs and supplies the occassional weed. I've been seeing a lot of Woody Allen movies lately and i have to say, i simple love the guy. He's simply ageless and a true genious, though he has streaks of racism in him and maybe a bigot at heart. I do think the best of the lot is definitely Annie Hall though i do have a few more of his movies to finish. Another guy i've been into is Kevin Smith and i absolutely love his stuff too, maybe even more than Allen's. Someday, i'll be inspired to go that way, i'm sure. Till then, i'm gonna go on blogging and free my mind of all the thoughts that keep clogging it up.
