Malicious Mechanisms

Thursday, 12 September 2002

tonight i’m go­ing to watch Waking Life (Linklater, 2001). its sup­pos­ed­ly a very in­ter­est­ing type of an­i­ma­tion con­vert­ed from live ac­tion. i’m skip­ping out on my Film Noir screen­ing of Double Indemnity (Wilder, 1944) to go see it. its just an­oth­er one of those ma­li­cious mech­a­nisms that pre­vent film ma­jors from go­ing to NDcinema by sched­ul­ing class­es dur­ing those times.

i got all of my free shit from Varsity Issue yes­ter­day, we get less than all the oth­er teams but it is still quite a bit. Adidas treats us well, i got a sweat­suit, track pants, long and short sleeved un­der­ar­mor, span­dex shorts, two pairs of mesh shorts, two shirts, two pairs of ex­tra long and ex­tra thick socks, run­ning shoes and a bag to car­ry it all in. Once they get in I will al­so get fenc­ing shoes, san­dals, and warmups. I’d es­ti­mate that if I pur­chased all of this re­tail I would have spent up­wards of $500. damn.
