Movie Night!

It’s movie night in the obelisk!

I sometimes watch movies in the obelisk.  The movies I watch are always full of stars (see above).  I’m particularly fond of the lost films of Theda Bara, because there is no extant footage.   I like films that make me think.

When I’m in the mood for mindless entertainment, I watch the films of Theda Bara.  They are SO melodramatic,  reminding me of my life if my life was filmed through a lens that reversed everything, like relationship and character.  Also, my life has never been so black and white.  I prefer a 19th or even 18th century palate, preferably in oil.  Odalisques, in general, are best rendered in flesh tones, unless you are Matisse, who, though he drew many odalisques in color, could quintessence our curves in a single voluptuous line.

Theda Bara’s eyes are often voluptuously lined.

The owl always watches movies with me, which is fortunate because owl eyes are very receptive to low-light.  I always know what’s going on in the movie, thanks to Owl.

I’ve made a new category called “Movie Night!” and will start scrapbooking our favorite scenes from the movies we watch.

The movies we see never in any way resemble the publicity materials Owl finds in the world-wide-web.
