Inspirations

Our third essay in Composition is supposed to be ten to twelve pages long on the topic of “who is your inspiration, and how have they played in a part in you pursuing what it is that you are pursing?” (I’m sure that there’s a more elegant way to say that.)

It doesn’t necessarily have to be why you’re at SCAD – the professor clarified this after someone raised their hand and said, “But my muse is Jesus Christ” (I think I might have audibly LOLed) – but, that would probably play into it.

So I figured that I would make a list of possibilities that I have to choose from to help me narrow it down and get started.

John Cameron Mitchell

I think that we all know by now how I fee about JCM (and OMG how cute is he in that picture?!) and while I could definitely write twelve pages on him and and the pretend relationship that I like to imagine we have, I already wrote about him and Hedwig for my first essay.

John Waters

JWat is a fairly viable option for this. In fact, he might be the best option. He’s a strange little man with even stranger obsessions. However, it’s possible that I’ll be immediately expelled from the film program for citing him as inspiration. Besides, JWat left (read: was expelled for smoking pot in his dorm room) NYU, where he would have studied film, within his first month there in order to go out and make movies on his own.

Andy Warhol

SO FUCKING CLICHE I DON’T EVEN WANT TO TALK ABOUT IT. Plus, let’s be honest here. His movies are fucking boring.

Todd Solondz

I have always imagined that any movies I write/make would be closest in tone to those made by Mr. Solondz. I really don’t know much about him…maybe this is a good opportunity to learn more?

Eddie Izzard

Okay, now this has just become a list of people I like. But while we’re talking about Eddie, last night I watched his documentary BELIEVE: The Eddie Izzard Story. Now, I know that you’re thinking, “I luv Eddie, but why did this bitch need a documentary?” and I have to admit that I thought the same thing. But after watching it for free online (courtesy of EpixHD) I found it to be funny, sweet, and surprisingly touching. My favorite part? That Eddie missed the Emmy ceremony where he won two Emmy’s for Dressed to Kill, to be on location shooting All the Queens Men! LOLx1000!!

Britney Jean Spears

Similar to the person who asked about using Jesus Christ for their paper.

In conclusion…I don’t know who I’m going to choose. But I have a few weeks to figure it out.

Best Wishes,

Elaine

On Turning 18

On my 18th birthday, which was April 8th, I spent two hours sitting quietly by myself in Josh’s dad’s office. Why? Because it was all a part of our plan to throw the world’s first ever Reverse Surprise Party! Josh’s called up some peeps and told them that my family and I had decided to go to Disneyland for my birthday and so he wanted to make me a surprise birthday video and needed their help. (Really, this should have been their first clue that something was up. Josh would never do something so nice on his own volition.) Anyways, the people gathered and I waited. Because some people were late, I had to wait an extra hour. It was okay, I needed the time to work on sewing costumes for Hedwig (sewing, by the way, is our new hobby. We’re basically sweat shop workers now). So they filmed scenes for their little movie, but when they sat down to watch it, I came on the TV instead, said, “Surprise, bitches,” and then walked out from the office. Reverse Surprise!

We ate pizza, sang to Elton John, chatted, watched a movie and danced to Brit. It was a nice little party.

Of course, it was dissapointing when we discovered that it was not the world’s first Reverse Surprise party. The first was done by a man called Jesus Christ of Nazareth. See, after he was crucified and buried his body dissapeared, and then he came back again a few months later. Reverse Suprise!

But it’s okay, I’m happy with having the second one.

As for being 18…I don’t feel any different. I don’t have any pierecings or tattoos yet, but that’s really just because I lack a government issued photo ID, which I’m working on.

I don’t really feel like a grown-up yet. But I’m thinking that moving out of the house and doing my own laundry in a few months will help.
