0081: Genius Script

Sean and Will sit in the bleachers at the mostly empty park.
They look out over a small pond, in which a group of
schoolchildren on a field trip ride the famous Swan Boats.

WILL
So what's with this place? You have a
swan fetish? Is this something you'd
like to talk about?

SEAN
I was thinking about what you said to
me the other day, about my painting.
I stayed up half the night thinking
about it and then something occured
to me and I fell into a deep peaceful
sleep and haven't thought about you
since. You know what occurred to me?

WILL
No.

SEAN
You're just a boy. You don't have the
faintest idea what you're talking about.

WILL
Why thank you.

SEAN
You've never been out of Boston.

WILL
No.

SEAN
So if I asked you about art you could
give me the skinny on every art book
ever written...Michelangelo?
You know a lot about him I bet. Life's
work, criticisms, political aspirations.
But you couldn't tell me what it smells
like in the Sistine Chapel. You've
never stood there and looked up at
that beautiful ceiling. And if I asked
you about women I'm sure you could
give me a syllabus of your personal
favorites, and maybe you've been laid
a few times too. But you couldn't
tell me how it feels to wake up next
to a woman and be truly happy. If I
asked you about war you could refer me
to a bevy of fictional and non-fictional
material, but you've never been in
one. You've never held your best
friend's head in your lap and watched
him draw his last breath, looking to
you for help. And if I asked you about
love I'd get a sonnet, but you've never
looked at a woman and been truly
vulnerable. Known that someone could
kill you with a look. That someone
could rescue you from grief.
That God had put an angel on Earth
just for you. And you wouldn't know
how it felt to be her angel. To have
the love be there for her forever.
Through anything, through cancer. You
wouldn't know about sleeping sitting
up in a hospital room for two months
holding her hand and not leaving because
the doctors could see in your eyes
that the term "visiting hours" didn't
apply to you. And you wouldn't know
about real loss, because that only
occurs when you lose something you
love more than yourself, and you've
never dared to love anything that much.
I look at you and I don't see an
intelligent confident man, I don't see
a peer, and I don't see my equal. I
see a boy. Nobody could possibly
understand you, right Will? Yet you
presume to know so much about me because
of a painting you saw. You must know
everything about me. You're an orphan,
right?

Will nods quietly.

SEAN (cont'd)
Do you think I would presume to know
the first thing about who you are
because I read "Oliver Twist?" And I
don't buy the argument that you don't
want to be here, because I think you
like all the attention you're getting.
Personally, I don't care. There's
nothing you can tell me that I can't
read somewhere else. Unless we talk
about your life. But you won't do
that. Maybe you're afraid of what
you might say.

Sean stands,

SEAN (cont'd)
It's up to you.

And walks away.

0276: 10款自助旅行時的好用App (2017 ver.)

本文昇級至我2015年兩個月歐洲行的文章,但還是保留了一些自言自語…
因為我一些想法沒有改變,請包含~

自助旅行一直是我旅行時的唯一選項,隨著科技的進步與旅行時程的延長,目前旅行時的利器是iPhone 7, 128 GB/ iPad Air 2, 64GB - 外加一帶放在呆北 (Taipei) 的組裝PC,讓整個行程相對輕鬆不少 (旅行時零迷路、零鬼打牆的感覺真的很棒!) 在此與大家分享我常用的幾個App… 基本上,我個性很懶不喜歡寫App的Guide Book,又喜歡試新App,所以不太喜歡特別為了某個國家去作專題App分享… 這篇文,就當超級基礎篇吧XD

0337: 韓劇 我的大叔 雜感

「我的大叔」對我是一部會埋在記憶裡的劇,也許對許多人也是。想寫雜感是在大約看到一半的時候的時候,不過有自知之明會寫不好,也很懶得去一集re很多次,就一次拖到我人生的彎轉過幾個,才寫下心得。

第一眼看到「我的大叔」這個劇名是直接把這部劇放掉的,想說該不會為了要創造話題,所以硬拍一部老少配的題材吧。加上男女主角都不認識,所以一直到播出了三、四集開始好評不斷,加上面臨了美、日、韓劇的劇荒,個人又特愛喪劇,我硬是在找出來看了一次…。

不得不說,開頭的辦公室場景,打昆蟲的的情節和打在代表頭上奇異動畫,讓我以為這是次世代的搞笑辦公室劇。第一集看完的時候,說真的還真不知道這部劇集要表達什麼 - 因為開頭讓我覺得無厘頭的場景和後續開始步入至安的黑暗世界,讓我好難入戲。


所以當我推這部戲給朋友的時候,我和朋友說一定要撐過第一集,過了就沒事了… 很可惜的是,當後面我每集都看到落淚的時候,我朋友無法體會,因為她在第一集就陣亡了。

題外話,整部影集完結後,我還是在劇荒中,再重看第一集,意外的覺得發現角色們的另外一面。像是大叔上班時原來是講冷笑話的高手;至安那張毫無感情的臉,讓人恐懼;另外大叔老婆偷情偷的天經地義,無負擔,也讓我嚇到。

如同版友們所津津樂道的,這部劇的細節很多,值得細細品嚐的對話其實摘錄不完。但對我而言整部劇會燒了起來,應該是從第四集,大叔把至安找進辦公室談判開始 - 因為在當下風向完全測不出來。這太不韓劇了;接著至安把都俊永代表玩弄掌心的談判…這倒底是怎麼樣風格的劇集,難倒是推理劇嗎? 但是主角三兄弟與媽媽的鬥嘴,這不應該是家庭劇嗎?

說到家庭劇,這部劇我第一個哭點和男女主角無關,而是在大哥被罵,媽媽放下便當離開,之後對他微笑的那場戲。然後我知道,我放不下這部劇了。


但這編劇藥下的好猛,同一集還不肯放手。結尾細節就不說了,硬是收的漂亮 - 這麼棒的劇才第四集,不禁讓我倍感期待,也開始每週期待上演的時間。


第五集是至安開始被大叔收服的一集,不過我中間的時候還是很怕至安會不會轉投陣營。究竟她見人說人說話,見鬼說鬼話的能力實在太強。

最奇妙的是這部劇的角色還會繁殖。當初期線已經開一堆,每個角色都有一堆故事可以寫的時候,三弟的女朋友,酒店老板,老板初戀(?)的和尚又跑出來加碼... 說到三弟的女朋友,初期會覺得她的存在莫名奇妙,但劇中埋線說明關係之後,又覺得她其實也是劇中想傳達…

0338: 薩爾達傳說 曠野之息 x 土耳其

先說前言,我是個愛自助旅行的人。

所以一打開聞名已久的 薩爾達傳說 曠野之息 (The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild),應該是說走出洞窟之後,我的感想是這不活脫脫的就是一場早期的自助旅行?! 連我媽在旁邊觀看我玩遊戲的時候,都說我在玩我自己XD 其實自助旅行本來就像RPG,但是上個月去了一趟土耳其,意外的發現這部作品與我的旅行,意外的很正相關~
