In good news, Gia comes to town attempt #2 tomorrow night.
My luggage should be here by late tonight.
Another fun thing: I think that I am getting sick because my throat hurts really horribly.
Thank you American Airlines/U.S. Airways for forcing me to check my one piece of carry-on luggage at the gate and then promptly losing it. Bonus: my cell phone charger and pretty much all my summer clothes are in that carry-on (yeah I don’t have a lot of summer clothes okay). Hopefully you call me back to tell me that you found my luggage before my cell battery runs out. I should have stayed in Portland.
I don’t want to leave Portland tomorrow.
Okay, I saw this film this evening and I really need to talk about it. Garden State is and has been a favorite of mine for a long time. A lot of Zach Braff’s work as an actor and/or director manages to hit me right in the feels (Garden State, Scrubs, The Last Kiss).
While there is certainly a strong echo of Garden State in this film (logically so since it has been said to almost be like sequel to Braff’s first film), Wish I Was Here can most certainly stand on its own. It was more subtle and quieter in some areas that showed a maturity in Zach Braff’s directing evolution since Garden State.
It was funny, dark, light, sad, happy, original, and honest. The acting performances were absolutely fantastic, especially Josh Gad as Noah Bloom who stole one of the final, critical scenes in the movie. He’s in a costume that could easily consume his emotional response, but it doesn’t. His emotions only amplify the costume’s symbolism.
I LOVED IT AND IT HIT ME RIGHT IN THE FEELS AND IT MADE ME LAUGH AND IT MADE ME CRY (a lot actually).
THANKS ZACH BRAFF AND KICKSTARTER BACKERS.

"If you want to, I can save you. I can take you away from here. So lonely inside, so busy out there. And all you wanted was somebody who cares.”
This song brings me so many memories from when I was little. It was my first CD and the first favorite song I’ve ever had.
