(Sorry for the bad quality of the video, it’s not mine.)
This is one of the more innocent and memorable quote/scenes from “Requiem for a Dream”, a film that’s so good yet so sad that I don’t think I can watch it again. I’ve only seen it once and that’s enough for me, thank you. Don’t you have a film that you’ve seen and it has created such an impact on you that you’ll probably never watch it again? Not because it’s bad but the complete opposite. It’s so good yet so intense, real, and overwhelming (or depressing) that for your mental and emotional health’s sake you decide that it’s best to omit it from your list of future repeats and/or movie nights. Another great film that has had this effect on me is Guillermo del Toro’s “Pan’s Labyrinth”. I bawled like a baby at the end. I feel sorry for the parents that brought their kids to see this movie in theaters when it came out thinking it was a children’s movie. Do your research parents! Guillermo Del Toro films are anything but children’s movies even if they do tend to have children in them (See “The Devil’s Backbone”). Have you seen any of these films? Feel free to comment below.
Well enough about films, that’s not the main reason for this post’s creation. I told you last Monday about West Fashion Week and how I couldn’t go because I didn’t have the cash. Well I got lucky Tuesday night.
The organizers of the event have been doing trivia contests and I won one of them. I won two tickets for Friday’s shows! (Cue the applause). I would love to make a giveaway for one of the tickets (and for a chance to be around my awesome company of course) but since most of you aren’t in Puerto Rico it wouldn’t be as fun. My brother will accompany me to this event which is great because I’ll have someone to talk to about non fashion/model/beauty things. Hmmm… I should also play the lottery (Hey, “soñar no cuesta nada”).
This is great news all around because it means that I will be taking pictures and writing about the Friday shows next week (Collective whoop and raise the roof). I’ll be giving you a taste of what Puerto Rican designers have to offer. Some of the designers that will present their collections on Friday are sorta new in the local fashion industry, so who knows what awesomeness or epic fail might be in store for all who attend.
So what do you think? I’m excited and hopefully the pictures will come out great.
Till the next post guys!! Take care.
