Donnie Darko

I saw this film today. One of the most profound, surreal, thought-provoking, satirical and all-round brilliant films I've ever seen in my entire life.

It's from 2001, but I'd never even heard of it before today.

Anyway, rent it. It's amazing.

The Idea of Death

This is strange when you think about it:

I can't rememeber when I discovered that I was one day going to die.
I don't rememeber the point in my life when I realized that life was finite, and that no-one was immortal.

Everyone that I've talked to about this can't rememeber that point either.

Obviously it must occur early in childhood, but, even so, you would think that finding out that your life would not last forever, would be so memorable that you would never forget when you first figured this out.

But appearently it isn't so.
