Perche ne sono fiero

Sono un Italiano, un Italiano vero

We sing this in class. It’s what we have to do every last hour of the week. I suppose it’s some kind of relaxation. As this is our last year, we won’t be singing for a long time anymore. That doesn’t matter, because you get new things instead like living on your own (that’s in 10 months from now), a driver’s license (that’s next month), other kinds of stuff that gives you freedom, etc.

Speaking of which (that’s the opning line, but it doesn’t relate to what I’m going to say): anyone been to the film festival of Berlin? I haven’t. I’m lying here on the couch because -as you all obviously know- I can’t move my leg, so it’s not too weird that I wasn’t there. Anyway, the biggest winner was Lars von Trier’s Melancholia. (I’ve only seen his ‘Antichrist’, but that wasn’t what I expected, plus it’s almost pure porn. The only difference: the age limit is 16+ (I am 16+).) I wanted to go and see it, but -as you all obviuosly know- I can’t move my leg. Let’s call it destiny.

Not only do I want to see it because I’ve just always wanted to see it, but there’s also an actor that makes me want to see it even more: Alexander Skarsgård. Let ‘Google Translate’ pronounce his name (in Swedish, of course), and then try to repeat it.

Kirsten Dunst in Melancholia.

    You’re leg will heal RFB and then you’ll be able to enjoy whatever you want.
    Oh yeah… I can’t sing to save my life.

      I definitely don’t want to sound… dumb, but I don’t get it: sing to save your life?

      • Becoming Bitter said,

        No problem and you don’t sound dumb.

        It means say that…

        For example, If there was situation in which I was at gun point and the gunman/woman said that I had to sing or I would be shot – I would be shot. Why? Since I can’t sing, I would be shot. So, I couldn’t save my life.

        Hence, the line “Can’t sing to save my life”

    Ooooo I see. I’d probably be dead too. A friend of mine visited me yesterday and he said that I can’t sing. It’s quite a desillusion, ’cause I really thought that sometimes I hit the notes. Oh well 🙂

    I saw Melancholia…it was okay. A little to artsy for me. Also, I couldn’t really concentrate because the camera was making me so dizzy!

    • Random Female Blog said,

      Don’t tell anyone, but I’ve secretly downloaded it. If that’s illegal, I really hope I’m not going to prison..

    I like your new layout! Also, I haven’t seen it- but Kiki Dunst kind of annoys me…

    • Random Female Blog said,

      I understand about the fact that she annoys you, but to me she’s just.. an actress 😉

    Oooh, a change of scenery. Not a bad choice actually.

    I quite like Kirsten Dunst but if that is an arty film I would just get bored in about ten minutes.

    How long are you likely to be out with your leg?

    Not sure if I have posted this funny video here or not but it is funny:

    • Random Female Blog said,

      Yes, it’s an arty film, but I normally like those a lot!

      Also, I don’t know how long I’ll be out, but I have to go back to the hospital on Wednesday, ans then we’ll see.

      Thanks for the funny video, by the way!

    Lars – dear old Lars – made a TV series some years ago now called The Kingdom, and set in a creepy hospital. Twas EXCELLENT. I am keen to see Melancholia. I really like the word Melancholia. But I generally want to punch Ms Dunst in the face.
