Inspiration: Wynter

tumblr_m4iglhf4mr1qb7rhko1_1280In keeping with the damp cold rain that is currently falling through clouds, I thought about the aspects of winter. When we hibernate and fall deep into our head and do excessive planning, action and interior projects. Now that I’m back on the East Coast I realize that the diverse weather was definitely something I took for granted in my youth. I now take comfort in the freezing rain soaked streets and my eyes peering up over my thick scarf biting the cold air from my face.

Sometimes it’s as if there are two people living inside my head. Each one has their own set of rules and moods. Today’s current mood is torn between minimal and grit. Two sides of my favorite and yet completely opposite aesthetic tastes.

Movie Crush: Highway

_183

I know you’ve missed me but not to worry, I’m back. I’ve made the move back to my home coast and things have really changed as expected. The one thing that gives me solace is my collection of films and music still kept in my old room. It sounds strange but it’s good to know that I can travel back into my old psyche and remember why I loved them so much.

Highway, released in 2002 is seriously a cult fave of mine. The film, starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Jared Leto in a roadtrip to Seattle for a Kurt Cobain vigil couldn’t get any better if I wrote the script myself. Even though it was filmed in the early 00s, it takes place in ’94 which gives it perfect grounds for a review here on FG. In the midst of this monumental trip on the road they meet Selma Blair and a list of zany characters. Without giving too much away, these two best friends are on the run in a hyper state of reality to one of the cities that inspired the music I love so dear. Must see.

Inspiration : Changes

Throughout the world there are changes happening. From speaking out in the streets and sit ins to let their voices be heard. I start to see the parallels in my own life that has also caused me to see the changes.

After 5 years of living in Los Angeles, it’s time for new adventures.  I’ll be moving in a few days back to the East then onto the next adventure. Stay tuned to see what’s next.

90s Crush : Jason Lee

9ee5926479601900f373ae6458804925

I first fell in love with Jason Lee in the film Mallrats. It’s crazy that I actually remember watching it for the first time in my best friends living room. I think from that moment on we started prefacing everything with “true story”. Jason Lee started out as a pro skateboarder in early 90s famously starring in Spike Jonze’s classic skate film, Video Days for Blind Skateboards. He began landing movie roles and soon left the full time skate world for Hollywood. He’s been a great influence and is making such an impact in both worlds.

Disturbing Behavior (1998) 

Apart from music being the most important thing in my life, the vast area of 90s films run a close second. When I think about some of my favorites, I find that still frames from each film pop into my head. In a departure from the usual Sunday inspiration posts, I’ve gathered a selection still frames from some of the movies that helped shape my adolescence.
