The Happening

This was a long weekend of drinking and partying and being out. Yesterday was the Pride Parade and I didn’t really feel like being out hella late, so I went with a friend to the movies.

Tanayah and I have been wanting to see The Happening since it came out. We really wanted to be scared and creeped out. The trailers looked good and M. Night Shyamalans’ other movies were so good. The Village. Signs. The Sixth Sense. They are all good acting, good production and a really big twist in the end….well….

This one was terrible! If you’re gonna go see it don’t read anymore.

There was no big twist at the end of this movie. The trees and plants are putting out a toxin that makes people kill themselves. That’s it. They basically tell you this/ you figure this out in the first 20 minutes and then you have to sit through two long ass hours of bad acting. I love Mark Wahlberg but he sucked in this movie. He also gave the best acting of the movie. There were weak love stories and bad bad acting and bad bad dialogue. The production value was really low as well. Sad, I thought this was supposed to be a big blockbuster.

Yes it was creepy to see lots of dead people everywhere, but that’s it.

Maybe M. Night should not write, produce and direct his films anymore. Let someone else in!

SF Gay Pride Parade 2008

No matter how drunk or hung over I am from the Pink Party the night before, I always seem to manage to get my ass up out of bed to get to the Parade. I love it. It makes me cry every year, though no one would ever know that because none of my friends ever make it and I haven’t had a boyfriend to go with me for what seems like forever.

This year, of course, was all about gay marriage. Thats kinda where I lost it. There was Gavin Newsom driving by in a nice old car, then behind him were hundreds of couples who have already or plan to get married.

It must feel so beautiful and wonderful to walk in this huge parade, proud of who you are and with the man you love so much. I want to do that. Profess my love for myself, for my partner and for my community for everyone to see and hear. While I was watching this year, all I could think is how good that must feel and I replaced myself with certain people in the parade and I got a glimpse of how amazing it must be.

I wish I felt that love. To be on a float dancing with freedom or embracing a lover and waving to the crowd. Thats better than partying in a crowd or drinking to oblivion…

The parade is not like three hours long, I didn’t stay for the entire thing. But here are some great pictures and videos I took while I was there.
