This part of Eastwood was never the same again after my fave haunt there since college folded up :’( (at Eastwood City Walk 2)
What did I just read? Celluloid by Dave McKean had “erotic” and “graphic” down pat, but “novel” doesn’t quite cut it. It seemed more like a silent film on paper, ergo a flip book. It had no words whatsoever so I didn’t either haha—I was a little dumbfounded by the end. I like McKean’s style in general, the same you will see in The Sandman series, although this one has MATURE written all over it, if nothing else. :P The most I got out of this was how comic books could be graphic novels but not all graphic novels could be called comic books. There’s my edification. *bow*
"Have you ever been in love? …Horrible, isn’t it? … It makes you so vulnerable. It opens your chest and it opens your heart and it means someone can get inside you and mess you up. You build up all these defenses. You build up this whole armor, for years, so nothing can hurt you, then one stupid person, no different from any other stupid person, wanders into your life… You give them a piece of you. They don’t ask for it. They do something dumb one day like kiss you, or smile at you, and then your life isn’t your own anymore. Love takes hostages. It gets inside you. It eats you out and leaves you crying in the darkness, so a simple phrase like ‘maybe we should just be friends’ or ‘how very perceptive’ turns into a glass splinter working its way into your heart. It hurts. Not just in the imagination. Not just in the mind. It’s a soul-hurt, a body-hurt, a real gets-inside-you-and-rips-you-apart pain. Nothing should be able to do that. Especially not love. I hate love."
— Neil Gaiman, The Absolute Sandman Volume IV
Here’s your obligatory Valentine’s post. It’s a little sad, but that’s love. ;)
