I have to admit, I'm perhaps way too sensitive; my feelings get hurt easily over stupid shit. I became a member of the fantastic DVD-by-mail service Netflix some two and half years ago, and four actual personal friends of mine added me to their lists so that we could all share and compare our movie choices and ratings. Sadly, I now only have one friend left though! One of my buds got rid of me a while back because his movie choices always conflicted with mine and I guess he got tired of me trashing lots of his films; I do still keep in touch with him however. The other two have personal issues with me and just dropped me all together, which really makes me feel inferior and unwanted; one of them hates me now, the other I see at work and he acts aloof around me period, yet they still talk to each other regularly. I have but only one Netflix bud left. I hope she doesn't drop me anytime soon. Amazing how one moment you can be friends, and the next, people just move on!
I must be getting old. I'm turning into an old gay man and I'm only in my early thirties here. I'm slowly but surely discovering the fantastic culturally vibrant and highly artistic city that I live in, Los Angeles. We've got such great venues, museums, theaters, and happenings all over the place and only now am I starting to realize and hopefully soon enjoy what this amazing city has to offer. As it is, I'm already pissed off that I missed Plácido Domingo last week at a special concert event, which must have been incredible. I really admire him tremendously, and hope to at least catch a glimpse of him conducting this upcoming opera show. There's also this great Bette Davis tribute going on next month which sounds really fun; I'd love to see some of her films in a real movie theater to get the full impact. For years, I've held out on watching Lawrence of Arabia in favor of catching it on the big screen, where it was meant to be seen. There's two wonderful screenings of it in my area coming soon, so I can't wait! Add several concerts/events at the Hollywood Bowl I'd like to attend, and you've got me broke by the end of the year! AHAHAHAHA! Oh there's just so much good stuff going on, I can hardly contain myself. L.A. is truly a culturally rich artistic world class city!
It all takes money of course, but I'm trying to spoil/educate/entertain myself before the world all ends in 2012.
