09:11 pm - OMG ANY1 SEEN THIS DONIE DARKO MOVIE WTF SO DEEP DID U GET IT?!!1/11/!
And just in case you can't get enough pretentious pomo bastard writing about cult films, here's a fine piece on Donnie Darko from the editor of eBert's new site that theorizes -- no, wait, he doesn't theorize, he explains with only a wink-wink "What if...?" -- that it's all because Donnie's sexually attracted to his sister and also Gretchen is a figment of his imagination because he can't realize his feelings towards his sister and his sister's really hot and played by Maggie Gyllenhaal which is also the real-life sister of the actor who played Donnie Darko and golly but I feel so very strange in my naughty place every time I think about this tee hee. He also uses a lot of cool three-dollar phrases like "hippocampus" and "polymorphously perverse" in order to make it sound interesting.

Hey buddy, there's a time and place for all this and that place is called fanfic. Go write your own stories in that universe and have 'em at least make out or something. Might get rid of some of that theatrical tension you seem to have. And also, dude, if you're responsible for the bloated abortion you call a site redesign for eBert, you deserve every ounce of derision you get.

Not just any hippocampus, mind you. The hungry hungry one. If I give you a bullet with this fool's name on it, will you convey it to him? Thank you.

As an English major, I suffered through endless lit classes wherein someone would almost always use phrases like "homosocial and/or homoerotic" (your mention of "polymorphously perverse" also took me back to those good old days).

So when I got to "Hey buddy, there's a time and place for all this," I was relieved to see that you had a solution in mind. So the end of the sentence almost made me start laughing. Fanfic! Of course! It's so obvious! Think of how much nicer literature classes and movie reviews would be if these stupid pretentious wankers got the wanking out of their system elsewhere! Up to this point, fanfic has alternately bored and frightened me, but I think now it may be the saviour of, if nothing else, people like me who like movies and get tricked into taking lit classes.

Donnie Darko would have been the coolest film ever if it'd had a fucking plot.
