¡Hasta la vista....Charlie!

Film allows us to listen through our eyes, it is often compared to the process of dreaming. ‘The American Dream’ was led by cinema. Films such as Citizen Kane in many respects, exposed this. Film therefore, is a contradiction in that we allow ourselves to become extremely emotive about events that are either completely fictional or events that have been shaped by the filmmakers.

Like so many people, I am a paradox. I am a politically conservative vegetarian. I am from a Christian background, and still tend to like those values, but am a metaphysical astrologer trained in science who has an interest in the magic of ancient Egypt and a weird belief that some piece of our essence can live on a server.

I bitterly complain about Algol (and Algol personaliites), yet it is the one star that defines me most (other than Regulus). (Which, oddly, makes me an Algol personality.) I am a reclusive lover of peace and quiet who has the Ascendant in the Via Combusta (the most conflict ridden part of the zodiac). I am an incredibly private person with a blog with over 800 followers and 50 to 150 regular daily visitors. I could go on, but I think you get the picture.
