I’m hosting my old friend again and having him over is changing all my plans. Although I don’t mind giving a helping hand, this situation cannot last too long. I have a life, a very active sex life and I need my privacy.

Since I cancelled Bruce last night, I watched two films:

SUSPIRIA

Suspiria is a horror film that is more psychological and gore than actually scary. In fact this grandiose bizarre remake is pretty interesting the first half, until it gets weird and too fantastical.

This movie made me go from a suspenseful “Omg what’s happening?!” to a disappointing “Omg what wtf I just watched?”

And I don’t mean it was terrible, BUT I didn’t expect that over-the-top ending… It was just too grotesque, and somehow boring for my taste.

Although the scenario (Germany 1977,) the cast and the whole thing was impeccable darkness and pure art, the spell was broken with those last scenes. This new version had a lot of potential to be a masterpiece… Still, Tilda Swinton playing three different characters was pure genius.

Regardless, Suspiria is a cult film.

And the one you probably didn’t see coming.

===========================================

STRAY DOGS

Stray Dogs is the portrait of a homeless family in Taiwan that lives in a certain state of decadence in a sophisticated society.

Although this film has a many touching moments, the film is too slow.

Some may find it’s relentlessly uneventful pacing tedious and boring, but as long as you embrace the story and have an artistic eye, you’ll succumb to the whole thing.

This film has no soundtrack, few cuts, long shots and long silence. Monotony from beginning to end… And yet, Tsai Ming Liang (the director) delivers a clear message of social inequality.

While there’s plenty of luxury apartments being built and then left unoccupied, homeless families struggle to survive.

Without a doubt, the most difficult film I’ve seen to date.

The Washington Post reports:

President Trump has gone to extraordinary lengths to conceal details of his conversations with Russian President Vladi­mir Putin, including on at least one occasion taking possession of the notes of his own interpreter and instructing the linguist not to discuss what had transpired with other administration officials, current and former U.S. officials said.

Trump did so after a meeting with Putin in 2017 in Hamburg that was also attended by then-Secretary of State Rex Tillerson. U.S. officials learned of Trump’s actions when a White House adviser and a senior State Department official sought information from the interpreter beyond a readout shared by Tillerson.

The constraints that Trump imposed are part of a broader pattern by the president of shielding his communications with Putin from public scrutiny and preventing even high-ranking officials in his own administration from fully knowing what he has told one of the United States’ main adversaries.

It’s a sad day when the President of the United States can’t trust his own staff to be loyal to Russia.

Reddit (who else?) brings us this amusing clip of a high school employee trying to slap a big floppy dildo off the gym wall with a broom.

If that’s how that guy beats off dicks, I’m already cringing and crossing my legs.

Inventively titled “Another Dick In The Wall” by “Pricks Floyd,”, the best part is when the other teacher feels she needs to block the camera from filming a fake dick scalding the children’s eyes.

Would she have been so censor-y if it had been a still from an Xbox game depicting some dude blowing someone’s head off with all the requisite blood and gore flying from his neckhole? I thought not!

Let dildos be great, lady!

Sorry for the lack of updated, I had an unexpected visit on Sunday and this person stayed over for few days. 

This person is an old friend of mine who was living in another city. Recently he decided to move back to Montreal but didn’t have a place to stay.

This friend of mine had /has a very unbalanced life due to his adventurous personality, and well… I hope that on this new journey he’ll get to settle once and for all. Because… you know… he is not 20 year old anymore.

So, he left today. In other words, I have my privacy back.

I haven’t had sex in 4 days and it’s killing me! BD messaged me last night, and also Bruce but I wasn’t available. Anyhow, chances are I see Bruce tomorrow, or whoever else… After all, visit gone, the fun is back.

As you know my pastime are men, but also arts. I love all forms of art, and that includes filmmaking, in other words CINEMA!

Few weeks ago I found this website, MUBI, and I was impressed and excited to see the amount of independent foreign movies it has, many of international competitions such a Cannes, Venice, Berlin and assorted prestigious Film Festivals.

MUBI is tailor made for cinephiles, it’s a social network/streaming platform/newspaper hybrid for anyone who despairs at Netflix.

Indeed MUBI is sort of an anti-Netflix by its very design: There is no rewatching since all films must leave, and there is no binge-watching, since there are no series and the films tend toward the slow and artsy.

All that said, I just subscribed.

I have 7 free days trial and then is only $9 something per month.

Can’t wait to indulge!
