  • Philowixian - A Memoir
    in the Hemingway ish vein This was more like a daredevil before a jump or a man before he proposes to his Love He thinks Oh man I could seriously screw things up but if I succeed it would be so cool Here was a man who seemed like he could destroy me easily and so there was this part of me that wanted to prove itself Well of course he caught me staring He winked at me And I stopped looking at him for the rest of the ride though I had to fight the urge to look at him again Out of sheer curiosity poke poke He exited the bus two stops before mine More than anything else by the time I have grandkids I would like to have lots of stories to tell Just endless endless amounts Like the high school teacher I had who taught English to the Eskimos met his future wife when he was a scuba instructor and had a rather vicious run in with the Mexican police he wrote a novel based on the years he lived in Mexico Yes this teacher would break into a story about once a day while we did our in class work I am writer and I like writing and my urge to have a lot of experiences may very well be influenced by my hobby life s work I ve gathered a nice little collection of stories myself For instance My little brother and I worked at a sandwich shop last summer A man once called 911 on us because the bread of his sandwich was harder than he liked it I will not elaborate much further for time runs short and writing takes time But I knew he was a potential problem when he leaned over to ask his daughter what sandwich she wanted and she wouldn t look him in the eye She flinched at every word he said Now I will say that you women must have great stories All the weirdoes approaching you on the street Sometimes when I m talking to a woman and she brings up how some guy was bothering her I realize Oh yes I forget People tend to bother other people with forward requests or inappropriate actions Well they approach anyone but me You see people have thought I was scary since at least 10th grade Seriously once I was in the hallway of my school and this one woman asked me serious Oh my God Are you going to kill somebody Even when I was in an okay mood I always looked angry And then one day after school I was looking in the locker room for my little brother because he was not picking up his cell phone I asked this one guy some stoner looking soccer player if he had seen a dude with a large afro my little brother used to sport the world s greatest afro hair The stoner looking dude said

  • Philowixian - Reel Life, or, a film column
    brother yet Ian cannot provide the necessary funds The brothers turn to their wealthy and established Uncle Howard Howard is willing to give them the money provided they make the ultimate sacrifice to prove their family loyalties Both brothers are lured by greed avarice and egotism to commit the ultimate crime that leads them into a tailspin As I watched the film I was reminded of Match Point as both films share sinister plots set in London I thought that Match Point was an utter masterpiece so I set my expectations high for Cassandra s Dream let s all try and forget the blunder that was Scoop The acting by the two leads was impeccable especially Farrell He personifies a desperate man who is pushed to drastic deeds The score was composed by Philip Glass and it added another dimension to the chilling plot The exposition was a bit slow but by the middle of the film I was on the edge of my seat unsure of what would happen next Although I enjoyed the film and it s examination of human nature I found myself comparing it to Match Point The similarities in plot and setting did not help
