Film Noir Gone Away

Monday, 16 December 2002

Film Noir is out of the way. some­how i man­aged to get an A on my bi­gass pa­per which counts for 25% of my grade. ap­par­ently i was ‘provoca­tive.’ not a word that i think is usu­ally ap­plied to me. maybe the prof was just try­ing to hit on me. i re­ceived a dis­tinc­tive not straight vibe from him over the se­mes­ter. he and his wife are strange folk. they never show each other af­fec­tion or even joke around, i think they just get off on lik­ing movies to­gether. but that’s gross. pretty much most of my film class thinks he is an erotic dis­si­dent. all i know is that he is bor­ing as all hell. I re­ally like this poem by Richard Brautigan.
