Where is your avatar from? Her glasses are fantastic, totally wish I could pull off something like that +_+
It's from the film adaptation of Ghost World -- Thora Birch as Enid.
Have you seen also [I]The Silence[/I] by Bergman?
Oh dear, what went wrong in Hollywood and Las Vegas?
Also, sorry, what I meant in that last question was your opinion on the Romantics and Impressionist?
Ah, Saint-Saents. I really enjoy his pieces. Fascinating elements in his music.
I do think that it has to do with their region. However, Chopin, although from Central/Eastern Europe, sounds still kind of Western. Wilder, more Eastern classical music you can find in Dvorak, Rimsky-Korsakov, Janacek and a little known Croatian one that my friend told me about called Jakov Gotovak (or something like that).
It's really odd, listen to this:
Also, I'm interested in what you think of the Impressionist or Romantic, as it were, composers. Composers like Debussy, Ravel, Faure, Saint-Saens, Satie, Franck etc.
omg that is sooooo cute lol
Eh, not true. I equally love symphonic, piano and chamber music. Listen to this:
Ah, I like Glass quite a lot. In a way, he reminds me of Satie. Satie's extremely simple and minimalist, yet deep in many ways possible. He also has a great personality, judging by his biography.
The YouTube link didn't work. You do this

heck yea i love St: tng. patrick stewert was made for the role lol.
Sorry for late reply.
Now, don't ask me who is my favourite composer; there are too many.
However, I'll just show you videos of the following composers:
Anders Hillborg (warning: music is terrifying)
Franz Joseph Haydn
Neidhart von Reuental
There. These are my favourites.
Heather Graham, Fairuza Balk, Vigo Mortensen, Patrick Stewart just to name a few.
You're welcome. I enjoy talking with you too.
Happy birthday, Eden! What did you do?
yea i noticed that too with the music lol. same with tv stars.
At least I had a few close friends who accepted me.
Instead of punk and goth, I'm more into jazz and classical.
It was different. There was one punk guy and he was just ignored. I was far too different for the conformist people at my school. I was too weird. I was the guy who was considered gay, a girl, fluffy haired retard, insane. Fortunately, I mostly ignored that, and the music, literature and art that I loved helped me get through.
my grandparents were pagan at one time. when it came time for me o have my dedication at 12 hey immediately went to catholicism. luckily i have the family grimoires lol. yea i can see why its hard to find a raised pagan, not many still out there lol. dont mean to make us look like a dying breed lol.
Your post on mainstream was fantastic.
Just exactly what I thought.
What happened to eccentricism?!
As a young teenager, I was bombarded by mainstream culture and it made me [COLOR="Lime"][I]sick[/I][/COLOR].
I was bullied and beaten up for liking classical music, art, reading and history and being asexual. Thank goodness these days are gone.
I feel the same way you do.
hey its nice to see you in my theory. i was raised pagan as well and its nice to meet fellow kin here lol.
No. I should. Though I'll probably post less on ZU, now. I've got to study.
I'll definitely look at it!
Good! I especially recommend the first three.
Was that art house enough for you? They are good movies but they are not independent, I'm afraid.

[I]The Secret of Kells[/I], Tomm Moore and Nora Twomey (Ireland, Belgium and France)
[I]Belleville Rendez-vous[/I], Sylvain Chomet (Canada, UK, Belgium and France)

Perhaps that was a bit too much.
I can recommend you lots of others, if you like.
Well, it's not about anything, really. It's a series of sequences of everyday life turning to surreal ways. It's a silent film made in 1929 in the Soviet Union. I thought you would be interested since you like surrealism and old films, I think. You can find it on the web.
Have you seen [I]Man with a Movie Camera[/I]?
Haha. Plus it's the only one with a female main character... that's a definite plus in my book.
3 It disturbed me the most.
