I have this habit of believing that the universe is sending me signs constantly.
Lately I have been seeing the name: Kurt Vonnegut a lot, and figured that maybe I should be reading more of his books. Last year sometime I read his book Breakfast of Champions. I never finished it…unfortunately, but I loved this quote:
Recently I read this post: here
written by a fellow blogger.
It made me want to go and get the book again and finish reading it.
What this post made me also realizes is that at different stages in ones life one gets different things from the same book. We all are individuals so he saw something else in that book than what I saw way back then.
It’s the same with movies. Two weeks ago I went to see “Life of Pi “ in 3D. I’ve read the book years ago, but didn’t like it very much. So after a lot of prompting from friends I eventually lost my 3D movie virginity and went to see it. I loved it. I want to re-read the book again sometime. As for 3D movies- I’m not sure what the fuss is about, I mean I admire the ‘art’ of creating a movie like that. I still wonder how they do it? With computers? The camera itself? The screen? It reminded me of those books where you have to squint and move it closer and further away and voila! 3D.
Personally I believe that the story is more important than the visual effects so for me it doesn’t matter if I see it on the big screen in 3D or on DVD at home.
The other day I was looking for books written by Vonnegut. There was only one : “Hocus Pocus” in our library, but I didn’t take it out yet, since I have to finish “Witches Abroad” by Terry Pratchet first. (A friend highly recommended it). Hocus Pocus- Witches Abroad…..mmmm
In Witches Abroad I found this quote about mirrors which reminds me of 3D movies :
“And your image extends forever, in reflections of reflections of reflections, and every image is the same, all the way around the curve of light.
Except that it isn’t.
Mirrors contain infinity.
Infinity contains more things than you think.
Everything for a start.
Because there’s a million billion images and only one soul to go around.
Mirrors give plenty, but they take away lots”.
How do you feel about 3D? and
