There is something fascinating about dark films and just darkness in general in the arts. I love how something usually so ugly can be beautiful. I was just watching television and i saw the movie trailer for Sweeney Todd, the film about the "demonic" barber by Tim Burton. Tim Burton is a freaking artistic genius. All his films never fail to be visually stunning. I cannot wait to see that movie. I used to fear that people thought I was weird for liking these types of things. Skulls, Black, Dark artwork, etc.... but its part of who I am. So... who cares? There is a beautiful art piece that I saw at the dayton art museum a couple of years ago that said "this is all that becomes of our beautiful days." I freaking LOVE it. Thats when my love for the darker images started. Well, escalated. My depression in middle and high school already made me appreciate it some. I liked it because it was true. When we die, we can't take anything with us. It all stays here. Kind of tells what you should be thankful for and what you should appreciate.
I appreciate my family, the fact I'm able to get an education, and my friends. I'm thankful that I never go hungry, that I have a roof over my head, that I have a car that gets me from point a to point me, I'm thankful for my legs, my hands, my head, my heart.
what are you thankful for? Thanksgiving isn't the only day you should be consciously thinking about it.
