Omnivore is a regular report on some of the things that I’ve been enjoying during the week (or thereabouts).
This week has been incredibly busy. I’ve primarily been going over paper after paper, and working out essay proposals and group projects.
That said, I’ve convinced myself that things are letting up for a little while and have therefore started on Kōbō Abe’s The Ark Sakura, which for some reason I find quite magnificent. I’m about a third of the book through.
I watched Scream for class this week. I do remember catching it on television a year or two after it first came out, and I have to admit that (probably because it was one of my first few slasher flicks, pre-giallo and all) a couple of scenes have really stuck with me in spite of the years. I’ll also have to fire up Mulholland Drive soon because I’ve decided to use it for my assignment. I did want to use The Lion King and perform some fancy psychoanalysing, but I have a feeling that that would leave my lecturer very unamused.
