Glad Lilly turned up.
That would have been fricken awful if she hadn't.
Usually the more independent ones do when they get hungry enough.
She is really a pretty cat.
I love "naughty" cats. they can be pretty destructive, thou8gh. tearign into everything.
I have door molding ruined from that and oh, the couches I have gone through.
My poor old things are just senile at this point. The ones I have left. One of them is peeing everywhere. I'm riding it out, though. He only has a few more months left, at lmost, I think.
My babies!! (even though they are not babies, but really senior citizens) They are dropping like flies!!!
BC and Alpha-Omega,
Clockwork orange always reminded me of "A Boy and His Dog", in a way. Similar themes.
Convert ot the social norm.
The irony of both movies being that the 'nice' society was just as awlful' (if not more) as the bad guy is was trying to reform. The difference was that the 'bad' guy was honest with himself about his badness, but the scoiety lies to itself and claims it's evil is for 'the greater good'
"Convert" That Rush song, "Subdivisions" comes to mind.
It was based on a real event? creepy.
But then I think of old those 'scared strait', shock programs that 'troubled teenagers' are sent to. The ones that like outward bounds, or basic training. That's all very mind controlish, when you think of it.

I figure the parents of those kids are either truly desparate or just total a-holes.
Stanley Cubric facinates me. More than his movies. He was very autistic-like.
I saw a biographical documentary on him that was so good. http://amazon.imdb.com/title/tt0278736/
He really had a thing about visual art. How things looked visually. He was kind of obsessed with that. "The look" of things. You can see that in his movies. That's why they are so scenic and clever visually as well as clever mentally. You can tell how much he liked how peopel would get so caught up in their roles in life. Eyes Wide Shut comes to mind , "I'm a doctor" and society's hypocracy.
So many of his movies seem to just want to say, "people are such fakes and really so horrible, deep down inside"
A reoccuring theme was people trying to look all controlled on the surface, as they secretly fell apart.
How we all act so domesticated, but it's bs, we're faking, feral animals faking it.
