always look on the bright side of life
i’m a lumberjack and i’m okay
harry potter and the deathly hollows

apologies – always look on the bright side of life – after all it’s monty python…as good mantra for a manic of the manic-depressive. i jump around so much. moments ago i was in depressive mode then i watched the trailer for part 2 of “harry potter and the deathly hollows”. tonight i watched part 1 with my partner and drove her crazy because i thought i had taken my geodon and other meds but it suddenly clicked that i was so manic and couldn’t shut the hell up with all my questions that i really didn’t want the answers to. it was such an exciting film and i am waiting to read the books after i see the last of the films. we have the complete set of both books and films except we will have to wait for the dvd of part 2. we will place it on special order as soon as amazon.com makes it available for pre-order. part 1 was so exciting and scary and so detailed that i wanted to know things before they happened. didn’t want the surprises. there was one that i will not say – do not want to spoil – but it greatly upset me to the point that i felt like someone was strangling me. my throat became very tight and painful and tears filled my eyes. that is all i will say. i’ve seen all the films but part 2 due out on july 15th in the states usa. and i would emphatically say that “HP and the Deathly Hollows” part 1 is by far the greatest of the entire series. next time i watch it, which will be quite soon, i will shut up and speak only minimally (they would have thrown me out of the theatre for sure)and take my geodon an hour before hand. i like getting excited but can do that even on the meds. so here’s to next time.
J.K. Rowling must be very proud that her baby has succeeded so well in the world. so much imagination and detail to enjoy and remember that so many generations are going to enjoy the books and the films forever as long as people are interested in fantasy and great cultural entertainment. they will be there with the likes of the major trilogy of LOTR and Narnia and Thomas Covenant. Someday maybe someone will get with it and start making films from the “The Chronicles of Thomas Covenant”. I mean the first series of books were a marvelous escape. i would be at lunch when they first came out and leave for the Land immediately after i started to read and when it was time to return to this world it was such a bummer. The Land was so exciting and magical and dangerous. You felt every moment and could see all of it inside your mind. The imagination went riding the trip with Thomas Covenant by Stephen R. Donaldson. There is a second series in the Chronicles also available. SO delighted someone turned me onto all these worlds of magic and intrigue and good vs evil. such a divine way to spend ones time amongst the realms where suspension of disbelief lives.
brilliant trailer of part 2 by the way. mind blowing. explosive. go harry. hermione and ron – beat the crap out of “V…” the SOB… i think the Deathly Hollows videos are different but it is sunrise and i can be absolutely sure but they are both spectacular. imagine them on a larger screen. OH MY!!!
my all time favorite monty python song “i’m a lumberjack and i’m okay”. stay with the video the song comes in eventually after a rather bloody skit. if you want the shorter version check out the next links.
then there’s this version that follows that is quite lively and has a fabulous chorus. just watch and enjoy.
