We’ve all experienced heartbreak. Some of us have even accidentally thrown out their weekly pay packet. But only a small amount of people know how truly gut wrenching it is to lose a tape containing every shot they’ve filmed for the past few months. I am quite certain that I would have lost my mind and torn through the building like the Incredible Hulk, considering I was just two shots away from having the sequence complete. I had to sit down.
But then I realized I am surrounded by positive, inspiring, beautiful people who keep me in stitches and my face hurting from laughter every time I’m with them. So basically, this predicament meant that I would be spending more time around them. I popped my headphones back on, switched on the camera and said “Okay, let’s just do this again.” It was one of those moments where you realize the warmth and generosity in people and how pointless it would be to get frustrated.
Last night I watched Anchorman - I’ve been this mood lately where I wanted to reacquaint myself with lighthearted stupid humor. I think this is probably the most quoted movie I’ve ever known and for good reason too. It pokes fun at itself in a way that is actually condemning sexist attitudes dominant in the workplace in the 70’s.
