(a frightened trapeze swinger)

It has been yet another late night working on a paper for my lovely World Cinema class. The film of topic: Wings of Desire, directed by Wim Wenders. It was quite a grand film, and another one I would recommend. In a very simplified description, it's about an angel named Damiel who begins to dabble in the idea of becoming human to pursue trapeze artist Marion and to experience what it feels like to be human.



Made me think of my favorite Iron & Wine song, 'The Trapeze Swinger'.

"An angel kissing on a sinner
A monkey and a man, a marching band
All around a frightened trapeze swinger"

In other news, I bought a ridiculous blonde wig the other day. Watch out world.

My bed calls...goodnight!
