camera obsessions

Nobel Prize-winning Playwright Samuel Beckett wrote the screenplay for only one film—and made his only trip to the United States to shoot it. It’s a short silent film called Film, released in 1965 and starring Buster Keaton. Film has now come out on DVD and Blu-ray, along with a documentary called Notfilm by film restorer Ross Lipman about the making of Film. Classical music critic Lloyd Schwartz admits to being a passionate admirer of both Beckett and Keaton

“In 1964, Buster Keaton was offered the most serious role of his career. Samuel Beckett was working on his only screenplay—a short film called Film depicting a character who, like a cockroach, seems terrified of being seen. Beckett calls this character “O” for being the “Object” of “E,” the “Eye” of the camera that’s obsessively following him. Beckett first wanted Chaplin but finally turned to Keaton, whose Great Stone Face and hapless but intrepid character have often been compared to Beckett. The playwright had previously asked Keaton to play the beleaguered slave Lucky in the American premiere of Waiting for Godot, but Keaton, bewildered by the script, turned him down. The new DVD also includes the memorable 1961 television version of Waiting for Godot, directed by Alan Schneider, with two great comic actors, Zero Mostel and Burgess Meredith, performing Beckett’s existential vaudeville.”

Pairing: Nicoeli
Words: 1k+

“Hey Nico, have you thought about what it is like to be frozen in time?” She blurts out casually one day, on a morning too fine for talks like these. “Maybe? Something in between existing and not?”

The other girl on the bed gives her girlfriend a small slap on the shoulder, evoking a laugh from Eli herself. “Eli?” Nico wraps her arms around Eli and pulls her closer, “You think too much sometimes.”

“And you don’t think at all.”

“I have you to do all the thinking for me.” A quick retort, banters that she has missed for a couple of centuries.

“Hey Nico,” Eli sinks into the embrace, another memory to be immortalized forever. “I don’t say it enough but,” Another kiss to remember. “I love you.”

i drew millie from my “what id do if i made su” au-ish thing

she’d have new bandages each ep because shes an outdoorsy run around kid  (ex: dirty shoes) and she probably gets a lot of scrapes

basically she read about the history of gems on earth and how elusive they are to meet face to face and tons of blurry photos of green women running from the camera and subsequently became obsessed with space, rocks, and space rocks

the gem family keeps arguing over whether or not shes ready to use a sword yet. shes so small. she can barely lift it, blue quartz, hows she gonna use it in battle?
