The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus

The Cast:

In the present day, immortal thousand-year-old Doctor Parnassus (Christopher Plummer) leads a travelling theatre troupe — including a sleight of hand expert, Anton (Andrew Garfield), and a dwarf, Percy (Verne Troyer) — that offers audience members a chance to go beyond reality through a magical mirror in his possession. Parnassus had been able to guide the imagination of others through a deal with the Devil (Tom Waits), who now comes to collect on the arrangement, targeting the doctor's daughter, Valentina (Lily Cole). The troupe, which is joined by a mysterious outsider named Tony (portrayed by Heath Ledger, Johnny Depp, Jude Law, and Colin Farrell), embark through parallel worlds to rescue the girl.

Mood Swings: Good or Bad?

Just to start out, this isn’t one of those stories talking about changes in the environment, government, Presidency, or anything like that, it’s changes in oneself.

Lately, I’ve found myself suffering major mood swings and having the insatiable urge to flip out on anyone who aggravates me. I’ve always had a short temper, but it’s never been like this - now. I don’t know how it started or when, and I fear I’ll never know. Still, every day I wonder if what’s happening is normal.

I’ve never been one to have high tolerance levels, nor high patience levels, but when it comes to people younger or significantly older than me, I’m so different, it’s amazing. For instance, when I’m around people my own age that aren’t as mature as me, or if their behavior isn’t appropriate for the scenario, I get incredibly angry. When someone asks a question that I deem to have an obvious answer, I get angry. When someone is too lazy to do something and resorts to asking someone else, who’s already busy, and the lazy person gets mad, I get extremely angry, especially if the busy person is me.

It’s like I have no tolerance for people my age if they aren’t like me, or if they aren’t the way they should be at their age, or something. Call me crazy, but I swear I’m an adult stuck in a teenager’s body.

I’ve been keeping to myself more than usual, finding myself in a world of books, video games, and music opposed to hanging out with my friends on Friday nights and weekends. Not to mention I’m still suffering from an emotional breakdown due to a “friend” who I thought I really liked, gave my all to, to only have my heart ripped out, and they’re clueless about it—they have no idea what they did and wonder why I never want to talk to them anymore. Is everyone so ignorant nowadays or is it just a somel of people?

From childhood's hour I have not been
As others were; I have not seen
As others saw; I could not bring
My passions from a common spring.
From the same source I have not taken
My sorrow; I could not awaken
My heart to joy at the same tone;
And all I loved, I loved alone.
Then- in my childhood, in the dawn
Of a most stormy life- was drawn
From every depth of good and ill
The mystery which binds me still:
From the torrent, or the fountain,
From the red cliff of the mountain,
From the sun that round me rolled
In its autumn tint of gold,
From the lightning in the sky
As it passed me flying by,
From the thunder and the storm,
And the cloud that took the form
(When the rest of Heaven was blue)
Of a demon in my view.

If a man treats woman...

This advice was passed along to me from a friend of mine; it was great to swallow - so I wanted to share it.


If a man wants you, nothing can keep him away.

If he doesn’t want you, nothing can make him stay.

Stop making excuses for a man and his behavior.

Allow your intuition (or spirit) to save you from heartache.

Stop trying to change yourselves for a relationship that’s not meant to be.

Slower is better.

Never live your life for a man before you find what makes you truly happy.

If a relationship ends because the man was not treating you as you deserve then heck no, you can’t "be friends."

A friend wouldn’t mistreat a friend.

Don’t settle. If you feel like he is stringing you along, then he probably is.

Don’t stay because you think "it will get better." You’ll be mad at yourself a year later for staying when things are not better.

The only person you can control in a relationship is you.

Avoid men who’ve got a bunch of children by a bunch of different women.
He didn’t marry them when he got them pregnant.

Always have your own set of friends separate from his.

Maintain boundaries in how a guy treats you.

If something bothers you, speak up.

Never let a man know everything. He will use it against you later.

You cannot change a man’s behavior. Change comes from within.

Don’t EVER make him feel he is more important than you are...even if he has more education or in a better job. Do not make him into a quasi-god.

He is a man, nothing more nothing less.

Never let a man define who you are.

Never borrow someone else’s man.

Oh Lord! If he cheated with you, he’ll cheat on you.

A man will only treat you the way you allow him to treat you.

All men are not dogs.

You should not be the one doing all the bending...compromise is a two-way street.

You need time to heal between relationships...There is nothing cute about baggage. Deal with your issues before pursuing a new relationship.

You should never look for someone to complete you. A relationship consists of two whole individuals. Look for someone complimentary, not supplementary.

Dating is fun; even if he doesn’t turn out to be Mr. Right.

Make him miss you sometimes. When a man always know where you are, and you’re always readily available to him—he takes it for granted.

Don’t fully commit to a man who doesn’t give you everything that you need.

Keep him in your radar but get to know others.

Why would he treat you any differently?

the primal curse

According to traditional Christian theology,
human beings have fallen from divine grace.
Satan tempted Adam and Eve to defy
the command of God not to eat of the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil.
Eve disobeyed.
Original Sin was born. All descendants of Adam and Eve have fallen from a blissful state of innocence and communion with God.

Since we have inherited Adam and Eve's guilt, albeit by a somewhat obscure mechanism,
we are condemned to a life of suffering and toil ("the primal curse"),
whether in seeking food or - in the case of women - giving birth...

Toward Nothing

I am sorry to make you bothered;
sorry to mess up your world,
sorry to disappoint you,
sorry to put you down,
sorry to pull you hard...
If only I could choose myself,
I wouldn't be here, breathing next to you
I hadn't have to make you mad,
I know I am unwanted
Nobody sees me
Neither you do,
I really do promise to make you proud of this stupid woman,
To prove that I am existing and my dreams are about to be true
I want you to believe me
Whatever ignorance is the crown,
it's all on your hands
I am sorry to disgust your life,
Like repeatedly sorries won't change a thing
Thus I would say:

Wished that God didn't make suicide as a sin...

Jelly Jelly Jelly

I'm like a jelly
Shaked up confusing color Cracked up and about to eat Shaped but meant to keep standing upright quiet Touched though nothing seemed precious
Ignore or swallow me,
That's what the nature has brought Then?
I'm just a jelly ...
