The First Teaser Poster For David Fincher’s ‘Gone Girl’
Now that’s how you effectively make use of a teaser poster.
You may not agree with a woman, but to criticize her appearance — as opposed to her ideas or actions — isn’t doing anyone any favors, least of all you. Insulting a woman’s looks when they have nothing to do with the issue at hand implies a lack of comprehension on your part, an inability to engage in high-level thinking. You may think she’s ugly, but everyone else thinks you’re an idiot.
I’m in love with you. Yeah, it’s that bad. You’re so beautiful to me. Shut up, let me tell you, let me. Every time I look at your face, or even remember it, it wrecks me. And the way you are with me; you’re just fun and you shit all over me and you make fun of me and you’re real. I don’t have enough time in any day to think about you enough. I feel like I’m gonna live a thousand years cause that’s how long it’s gonna take me to have ONE thought about you which is that I’m crazy about you. I don’t wanna be with anybody else. I don’t. I really don’t. I don’t think about women anymore. I think about you. I had a dream the other night that you and I were on a train. We were on this train and you were holding my hand. That’s the whole dream: you were holding my hand and I felt you holding my hand. I woke up and I couldn’t believe it wasn’t real. I’m sick in love with you. It’s like a condition; it’s like polio. I feel like I’m gonna die if I can’t be with you and I can’t be with you so, I’m gonna die and I don’t care cause I was brought into existence to know you, and that’s enough…
You have something amazing right here and the fact that you are not happy about it does not mean you should abandon it. Rather, it means you have to truly commit to it — on its terms. I suspect that you are expecting the feeling of belong to come, and then, once you feel you belong, you will decide to stay. But that’s backwards. You won’t belong until you’ve decided to stay. Begin truly living in this place and the feeling of belonging will follow, because it will be a fact. Once you’ve committed to staying, then you will belong, and the feeling of belonging, a feeling you desire to have, will arise because you actually belong.

Learning to See
I haven’t had any formal training in painting, and I’ve usually been content to use experimentation as my teacher, but lately I’ve been really hungry to learn and challenge myself as an artist. I’ve been reading through Betty Edwards’ book Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain and I think she is a fantastic teacher. This painting is a result of me putting to use some of the principles I’ve been learning. The main being learning how to see properly/differently. Creating art can definitely be a mental/emotional battle and this piece was definitely a challenge, but also totally exciting. The result I think is a piece that is totally different than my past works. Not just in the colors, but the movement, form & spirit. This piece has now become very significant and special to me. Oh and I painted it upside-down.
