the film and book are amazing

pragmaticginger  asked:

Hey, My favourite book to film adaptation is 'The Hours'. It has three stories, one is a modern adaptation of the book, one is about a lover of the book, and the other is about how the book was written. It gets the heart of the book, translating the emotions from to the screen. It's beautiful, understanding depression and isolation, weaving the three stories together with a lyrical pace. Sorry I know it's a wordy response, but, I love this film :P (Have a lovely day :) x )

It sounds really amazing, I’ll definitely have to look it up! I like that it includes stories that are outside of the book, too, that seems pretty cool :)

What is your favorite book to movie adaptation?

The whole "musicians are putting backwards messages in their songs to get your teen to worship Satan" moral panic was just completely insane. I can't believe that was an actual thing that was widely believed and talked about.

It’s insane how things like that happen and just keep on happening, whether it be films, music, video games, or anything else. In the 1950s, it was comic books. People were convinced (thanks to the help of a miserable-yet-fascinating book called Seduction of the Innocent) that in addition to warping kids’ minds, comics caused asthma because they kept kids indoors instead of being outside in the fresh air. 

It’s truly amazing the depths people will go to in order to blame virtually everything else for their problems or their own inability to deal with things that they don’t understand. 

Monday 8:27am
I woke up with you on my mind.
You called me babe last night —
my heart is still pounding.

Tuesday 10:53pm
Today I realized we won’t work.
What we are is hurting her.
And I think she matters more to me than you do.

Wednesday 11:52pm
I broke things off with you today.
She barely said a word.
I’ve never regretted anything more than this.

Thursday 4:03pm
I shouldn’t have sent that message.
You shouldn’t have been so okay with receiving it.

Friday 9:57pm
I almost messaged you today.
I didn’t.

Saturday 8:49pm
I’m walking around town in search of alcohol.
They say that liquor numbs the pain of having a broken heart.
I want to put that to the test.

Sunday 2:32am
I heard you texted a girl you’ve never spoken to before.
I wonder if it’s because you’re trying to replace me.
I can’t help but wish you weren’t.
I thought I was irreplaceable.

—  a week with you on my mind, c.j.n.
Move on, leave, run away, escape this place… but don’t forget about me, about us, about this town. Always remember where you come from so you can appreciate how far you’ve come.
