Day 42: The Future on Easter

San Francisco Summaries: In light of being over a week behind on posting, most of these posts will be summaries.

Best Way to Spend Easter Morning When You Decide to Skip Church: Sleeping in, getting a tasty Serra Negra from Ritual and delicious Pecan Roll from Arizmendi, and calling Grandma.

Good Afternoon Art Film to Zone Out To: Nainsukh, a quiet film based on the life of an Indian court painter. The film is done in the style of paintings, with little dialogue or non-nature sounds, showing what would have been the inspiration for the artwork. Quite beautiful, but not “entertaining.”

Great Way to Keep Lines Moving When You Volunteer: Wear a cheery yellow dress under your volunteer t-shirt, so people will be blinded by your inner sunshine and get to the correct theater.

Favorite Quirky Film To Reaffirm My Life at the Present: Miranda July‘s new movie The Future, which I saw with MAB. I’d heard it discussed on the A.V. Club podcast a few months ago and really wanted to see it. I thoroughly enjoyed its weirdness and the way it addresses some pretty deep things whimsical ways. July was in attendance and in the talkback reemphasized the main point of the film: “It’s better to make a phenomenally bad decision in order to become ‘unstuck’ than to just stay stuck in the same place.” Since I feel like I just became “unstuck” after years, this resonated with me pretty hardcore.
