2020 has been a hell of a year and I just wanted to find a place that I could just write. Not necessarily anywhere near my professional spaces but just somewhere I could regurgitate what was floating around in my head.
So since I have already invested into Standard Notes and have to say it is such a slick product that I continue to try and find ways to shoehorn into my workflow. I figured that starting a Listed journal would be a freeing experience in terms of getting me writing.
What do I want to get out of this experience? Well, I actually enjoy writing but find that both in my professional and personal spheres there is quite a lot of pressure to have a purpose, a direction. I feel like the Listed space is more about meandering musings rather than having a specific direction.
Anyway, onto today's thoughts.
So, anyone who knows me, knows I like horror. So I finally pulled the pin on Shudder and subscribed. Have to say I have quite enjoyed the content I have managed to watch. Primarily two small-ish horror films: Scare Me with the excellent Aya Cash. Scare me is quite a simple set up but it both Aya Cash and Josh Ruben bring some excellent acting. Its the chemistry and gusto with which those two retell (or tell?) those stories trying to scare the other. The other movie was The Morturary Collection. I quite like the aesthetic of this movie, so hats off to the visual design team(s). The twist if you can call it that is quite subtle and sneaks up on you.
Both are thoroughly enjoyable and recommended to any horror fans out there.
That's my 200 words for today. I'll catch you on the next one.
