after seeing Birdman of Alcatraz



For the first half of "Birdman of Alcatraz" I thought this was maybe the best movie I'd ever seen. The second half wasn't as moving.

It was interesting how civilized jail life on the cell blocks was portrayed. Was it really like that?

After seeing the movie I poked around facebook and made contact with friends from the past, saw friends of friends I also knew, even friends of friends I didn't want to know anymore. You can call out to them and make digital contact, but it's not the same as being in person, of course.

It was as if friends from my past were in all these different little cells calling out to me, sort of.

you know it-- otherwise the front room would be filling up fast.

It's funny when a person you associate with the past shows up again. I think part of our brain (at least my brain) is convinced that these people stayed moored in the year/setting we knew them in, like characters in a book or a movie.

Funny picture, by the way.
