First, an announcement (which some of you already know):
I finished the first draft of Jane's Air last Thursday! Yay! Naturally, I've been editing ever since. That is, when I'm not doing homework or sleeping.
Actually, I've been editing instead of sleeping, so never mind that last one.
Anywho, I took a little break Saturday night to watch "The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly".
And it was really good.
I never liked anything western-related before I started my book; now I can't seem to get enough of it.
More Clint Eastwood please!
I'm so glad I finally watched this. It's the perfect culmination of everything western (even though it was technically made in Italy, I believe).
Because I am a dork, I took notes as I watched Clint chewing on his cigar, staring down the length of his rifle. Here are the notes I took:
-where do they get wood for buildings?
-bullet belts/gun holsters
-bags of money
-lots of rock formations and gravel
-mustaches, but no beards
-Clint's eyes are SO green!
-Clint plays with kittens!
Yeah. So some of those observations are silly (it's a really long movie, folks), but I feel like I have an advantage now that I've watched it. Descriptions of the towns will be that much better.
This showdown is the best I've ever seen.
Also, it has one of the most recognizable themes ever!
Okay, all this Clint talk is making James jealous, so I think I shall wrap this up.
Have a good Monday!
