Through the young ten years of his life, every single Christmas film he noticed was usually set in some beautiful suburban neighborhood on the east coast, others in pleasant New York urban streets. The trees were always bare and lit with snow, the brick built homes and apartments alive with lights and joy, a word that seemed synonymous with this time of year. It wasn’t as if he hated it, he simply felt no connection to it, those films. As he walked farther down the street, the chain link fences were close friends as they followed him down every avenue and road back home. Where were the white picket fences? And why were the leaves of every tree still brushing the top of his head, to which he smacked as if they were intentionally picking at him with conviction. Where was the powder white snow that would accompany him instead of the rainwater and mud that clung to him? Another poke of the leaves and their branches above. Why was it that these trees were still so alive at this time of the year here? Why weren’t they dead like the ones he had seen that had looked so much more pretty and graceful than these that teased and insulted him? Another frustrated smack of a leaf on his head, walking harder and faster now. Why couldn’t they be dead? They seemed so much more beautiful dead. As he quickly slapped another leaf that had been resting on the top of his head, he slipped in the mud below and fell and sat there in the cold rainwater and looked up. His eyes fell upon a bare, bald, tree and the clouds overhead opened up and began to pour. He sat, fixated on the exposed tree and he couldn’t tell if the water below his right eye was from a tear or from the rain. “They’re so much more beautiful dead.”
So, so damn bored. Someone save me, talk to me, something, anything.
I wish we got to see more of Dean. I feel his best movie was East of Eden and that being Jett Rink in Giant was his best performance, while the movie itself wasn’t very good. Rebel Without a Cause is really good too and is obviously a classic and is more popular than both other movies because of how it appealed to teens, but in general I think the movie is average compared to East of Eden as is his performance compared to what he did in Giant. You could really see the growth in Giant. In such a short amount of time too. Bummer.
Nobody’s nothing. You can’t cancel out any living human being. Sometimes they surprise you. This boy has a deep grudge. Not only against Bick, I’d say, but against the world. If he’s strong enough and carries it long enough he might do quite a lot of damage.
Kovalev will KO Adonis and Ward will UD Adonis.
