ragtags studio central: sarah's random this & that

random means "having no definite aim or purpose," (1655), taken from "at random" (1565), "at great speed" (thus, "carelessly, haphazardly"). In 1980s college student slang, it somehow, and sadly, acquired a distinct sense of "inferior, undesirable." (Online Etymology Dictionary, Douglas Harper) Well, okay, fine, Mr. Online Etymology Dictionary person, but THIS is the 21st Century. It's a whole new ball of wax.

Lovin' this:

Lily Allen LOOKS oh sooooo sweet, but she has her eyes wide open and does NOT hesitate to tell it like it (sometimes) is.

And while I'm at it, though only *I* fall into the category of seeming spunky for just "liking it so much"(Claire Forlani in Meet Joe Black), this somewhat dark (albeit infused with an inner light) film appealed to me, not least because I appeared as several characters in a stage version of the Welsh poet Dylan Thomas' masterpiece, Under Milkwood which is the underlying narrative for this film. "Me, Mrs. Dai Bread Two, gypsied to kill in my silky scarlet petticoat above my knees --- dirty pretty knees ---"

Get it, see it, pass it on if you agree.
