It's all about you, or, maybe not

Sometimes, sometimes McFly were wrong.  Obviously she was not out of their league - they were good enough for her. Clearly.

It is NOT all about me.  It's not all about me BABY.  Ahem.

But one thing I do know is that I'll be OK because, even when it feels like it, I am not alone.  They got that one very right.

So the lessons for today.
  • It's not about meeee
  • I'll be OK
  • I'm not alone
Look forward to more learn with McFly blogposts in the future (probably not due to the whole McBusted thing but there is a risk this could happen again so be warned)

Clap along if you feel like that's what you want to do

So I finished the #100HappyDays thing.  And I made a wee video of my photos again.  I think this one might be the best one.

For best enjoyment open this video for 5 Years Time in another window or tab and play it while you look at the photos and don't ask me where that day went...

So you might have guessed from my last post that I have been a bit down on myself for the last few days.  There has been so much change and I got a bit overwhelmed and scared and then started wondering what the point was and so on and so on.  I think I was basically on my way to an early quarter life crisis, complete with plans to get my head shaved and what was left dyed purple even though personality wise I really do not think I could pull that kind of deal off.

In the midst of this emotional mire, we saw that Boyhood was coming out.  To place my cards on the table I am a MASSIVE Linklater fan.  I love his movies, so much.  On Friday I checked and found out there was a Sunday showing at our local(ish) cinema at 16.10 and that we could go.  By the time Sunday rolled around I was feeling very bad. I had not slept properly for a week, I was so hormotional I was crying at adverts and I was in pain. I did not want to go, but we have an agreement that if one of us does not want to go and one does, that the one who does wins so I dragged myself off the sofa and we walked down and boy am I glad we did.

Boyhood is everything I hoped it could be. I loved it. It is beautiful and perfect and flipped my perspective through a 180. I really cared about Mason Jr and all the other characters, and how their lives played out.  The acting was great, the music was great, the pacing was great, everything just hit the mark for me perfectly. I want to see it again, and again and again and very few movies leave me like that (Big Wednesday is one and the "Before" series is another). So I highly recommend going to see it, Ellar Coltrane is fucking amazing too, I would love to see what he does next.

If that has not convinced you enough here is the trailer:

As you know I do not often do any kind of review but this film is something else and I wanted to share.  I hope you enjoy it too.
