Top Ten Forbidden Romances

10. Jay & Daisy “The Great Gatsby” {2013} [HAVE SEEN once but only the beginning] !!!!! out of 5 Starring Leonardo DiCaprio & Carey Mulligan. Adapted for the screen & Directed by Baz Lehrman superbly from the F.Scott Fitzgerald Novel “The Great Gatsby” written in the 20s of the 20th Century. It shows the self-made man. The modern Heathcliff returning with wealth to regain the hand of the woman that he loves. The film is narrated by his new neighbor Nick, cousin to the woman Jay Gatsby is in love with, the lovely Daisy. The film does not have the typical film ending for Americans but it comes straight out of the book. Recommend this version of “The Great Gatsby” for what is below the surface of its supreme flair & flaunting of excessive frivolity but there still is Robert Redford & Mia Farrow’s version, which come close.

9. Harold & Maude “Harold & Maude” {1971} [HAVE SEEN many times] !!!!! out of 5 Starring Ruth Gordon & Bud Cort. Case of a quirky young man who loves to attend funerals & gives his mother the appearance of being dead & once a first time viewer I wasn’t at all sure. Harold meets Maude at a funeral and they start an adventure of following the most unusual story of youth and age falling in love. Beautiful story. Very much worth watching.

8. Dave & Jade “Endless Love” {2013} [NOT SEEN] [??? on ! HNI] Have no clue. After reading up, it is a story of wealthy girl’s parents not liking their daughter to involve herself with someone not within her required dating class. Just released 2014 on Valentine’s Day. Looks like something for Young People but I think it has the potential of being something all ages starting at the mature teenager, would want to check out. Joely Richardson plays her mom and Bruce Greenwood plays her father. They come across in the Trailer as being overly restrictive or protective for good reasons. Only way to find out how this story develops is to see this possibly intersting film.

7. Flipper & Angie “Jungle Fever” {1991} [?NOT SURE -Spike Lee Film][??? on ! HNC] Starring Wesley Snipes & Anna Sciorra. On the grounds that is Spike Lee and he has made remarkable films. This might be a film I will be checking out. You might want to think about doing the same. Does the film “Do the Right Thing” ring a bell. Brilliant. My favorite Spike Lee film.

6. Jack & Karen “Out of Sight” {1998}[HAVE SEEN] !!!! out of 5 Starry George Cooney & Jennifer Lopez & a long list of amazing actors. I, especially found Steve Zahn extremely funny. This to me was more a comedy then a U.S. Marshall tracking a particular thief and discovery zanny crooks all about the place. My recollection of this film is laughing. Jennifer L. is the Law and G. Clooney is the Criminal element. Expect to enjoy and laugh when you watch this film. I do remember I did.

5. Baby & Johnny “Dirty Dancing” {1987} [HAVE SEEN-so many times & will see again.] !!!!! our of 5 [Miss Patrick] Starring Patrick Swayze & Jennifer Grey. The coolest film ever. Music takes you to every time zone. If you can go to the 50s and zone out. What a romantic and sensual film. Love the interaction with family, with the class structure of who are guests and who are employees [NOT TO MIX so UnFair]. Baby finds her way to the best places. Learns Dancing the most intimate way possible. Most entertaining film for any age. [Might want to distract the young kids if using bodies to really dance disturbs you. NOT I. It is so entertaining. The undercurrents of attraction are sizzling. The care for Baby’s new friends is touching. Her father is not so pleased. Not sure if it is b/c of age or the uncertainty, in the father’s mind, just how upright is this older young man being with his daughter. A father’s question, “What does he want from my daughter?” Watch the film to see the answer and so much more than you can imagine.

4. Jack & Innis “Brokeback Mountain” {2005} [HAVE SEEN multiple times] !!!!! of 5 Starring Jake Gyllenhaal & Heath Ledger. I will first say, I miss Heath. Began watching him in TV show ROAR!!!. A kid whose character was way back in time. To this film and beyond. Every film. Every opportunity to see him act. “Brokeback Mountain” is brilliant. One cannot see more powerful performances then these two extremely great actors gave of themselves to themselves as Jack & Innis. Watching two men fall in love. Watching two women fall in love. Watching two people fall in love, man and woman. All of Love is Beautiful. To share the joy with another is what makes Love Special. Love is the most powerful emotions in the Universe and Beyond. If we each find our Other World Experience to be what we expect and want it to be, that is Love. Who wouldn’t wish for Love. The Soul’s gift to the natural elements of the Universe. A High Like No Other. Pure Love. Desiring the contact & union of feelings with another. We are talking the ethereal contact which on a HIGH of Higher Proportions than anything else in & out of existence. If you want the experience of seeing Love learned & expressed by two for the other, having it be a mutual feeling between them. Love when it is agreed upon & accepted freely by another, it takes on even a greater HIGH than any other energy force in the Universe. It will carry your spirit to Heights one can only imagine. Love this movie. Love the controversy. It meant Love mattered and those who understand Love fought for this story to be told. And it found acceptance from the enlightened ones who understand Love belongs to everyone. To be given in a respectful way. And on one’s own terms, it will be understood. I’d say, I Highly recommend the film “Brokeback Mountain. Ang Lee did a brilliant job as the Director.

3. Elizabeth & Mr. Darcy “Pride and Prejudice” {2005} [MAY HAVE – seen #s of versions] Keira Knightly & Matthew Macfayden[MI-5][?! HNC] Sparks fly when spirited Elizabeth Bennett meets single, rich, and proud Mr. Darcy. But Mr. Darcy reluctantly finds himself falling in love with a woman beneath his class. Can each overcome their own pride and prejudice?[descrition taken from IMDB.com]

2. Will & Viola “Shakespeare in Love” {1998} [HAVE SEEN many time] !!!!! of 5 Starry Gwenyth Paltrow[Best Actress Oscar 4SIL] & Joseph Fiennes. William Shakespeare. A film revolving around his younger life and creating his masterpiece play “Romeo & Juliet.” It is romantic. Judi Dench makes an occasionally appearance as Elizabeth I, Queen of England. [For her short time on screen she won a Best Supporting Actress Oscar] Gwenyth’s character manages to get herself cast a male actor playing the role of Romeo and William winning her love away from Colin Firth who plays the Royalty the Queen has set to marry Gwyneth’s character by the end of the film. It is a play of intrigue and error. Fun to see the Bard, Our Man Shakespeare, having a runabout with all sorts of problems to get his play produced. To find a theatre to show it in. The critics and moralists are against him & try to foil all his plans through an Edict. Highly Recommend. A Great Romp. And Judi Dench. 🙂

1. Noah & Allie “The Notebook” {2004}[HAVE SEEN awhile back] !!!!! of 5 Starring Ryan Gosling & Rachel Adams in Past – James Garner & Gena Rowlands in Present. It is the story of love from the beginning-the middle-and The End. They were separated from the beginning by social class restrictions. In the end by the same thing, Identity, but in this a lessening of knowing who one is. An Emotional Roller Coaster Ride. Lots of Rainy moments.

TELL ME A STORY


The 4 stories we tell ourselves about death

One day we realize we will die.

Bias: Where we get things wrong.

4 stories of Immortality:

Story 1: ELIXIR – [Myth of the Fountain of Youth] We want to avoid death. Science can cure death.

Story 2: RESURRECTION – I am this body. I can rise up & live again. [Reincarnation] Cryonics is having yourself frozen.

Story 3: SOUL – Leave body behind. Live on as a Soul.

Story 4: LEGACY – Live on through your work. Live on through your echo fame.

Be skeptical of all these stories we believe because we are biased. Because we are afraid pf death. Fear of death is natural but not rational. Too scary to believe we will be gone.

Quote from Ludwig Wittgenstein: “Death is not an event in life. We do not live to experience death.”

Our lives are bound by birth and death.

You just make it a good story – your life.

MAGNIFICENT CREATION OF KALEIDOSCOPIC IMAGERY
AWE INSPIRING VISUALIZATIONS
MAGIC IN THE SMOKE AND MIRRORS

Mirror City Timelapse
from Michael Shainblum Plus 6 months ago Not Yet Rated

When I first started Mirror City, I wanted to create a video that was completely out of the norm. I wanted to showcase something unique and artistic, which takes Timelapse photography into a more abstract direction. Mirror City is a visual story through some of the great American cities: Chicago, San Francisco, San Diego, Las Vegas and Los Angeles. These clips were all processed from their original form, into the kaleidoscopic visuals that you see in this video. Many people visit these large cities every day, and all of these places have been shot and filmed, but I wanted to emulate these urban landscapes in a way that nobody has even seen before. I wanted to put man-made geometric shapes, mixed with elements of color and movement to create less of a structured video, and more of a plethora of visual stimulation.
The video starts off with simple mirrors and recognizable architecture, as the video progresses, so does the visual stimulation, showing the real abstraction of the piece.
I have worked on this piece for an extremely long amount of time. I have spent time mirroring images and videos for the past five years, and I have been working on this specific piece for about four months. I felt it was time to combine Timelapse photography and the simplicity of a kaleidoscope, and create Mirror City.

Welcome Home Timelapse – Shainblum

Ever since I was a kid, I have always been mesmerized by extraordinary beauty of my hometown, San Diego. The city has many hidden treasures that have always captivated me, and they continue to do so. Most people only get to experience the tourism side San Diego, but I wanted to show the city through my own eyes and artistic vision. I wanted to showcase San Diego from the eyes of somebody who has lived there their entire life. I have been working on this piece for about four months to really harness the details and create a visually striking Timelapse film. I wanted to make something that was unique to my own perspective of filmmaking. I also wanted to create this video to encourage people to go out and witness how beautiful San Diego really is.

Existence – Shainblum

Michael Shainblum created all three of the Vimeo Videos I am presenting in this Post: Amazing Visions: Mirrors Reflection. A visual artist to watch out for.

This is my film “EXISTENCE A Timelapse Project”

Original Project Description:
This short video is called EXISTENCE. The video is a statement not only about time and progression, but also a statement about the world we have created for ourselves. The basis of the video contrasts the two extremes of life itself: the urban metropolis, and the beauty outside the city. I love to stargaze. Watching the milky-way float across the sky is one of the most therapeutic experiences I have ever felt. If you haven’t experienced it, then I strongly recommend taking the time to do so.
Enjoy.

Private Writings: Chapter #50 — Fated Attraction

Tuesday 19th August 2008

Dear Annie,

I am going to write you an unusual letter tonight. If I get too descriptive, I apologize, but I feel you need to hear a very descriptive imagery of what happened at our dinner party. Not bringing it up in session was on purpose. This needed to be written down when I felt ready to tell you. Well, now is the time.

This is when, where, and how it all developed and happened. I am not proud or ashamed of what happened. It just felt right and I am not sure that it is going to stop. What I feel is more intense than anything I have ever felt. Except when I knew someone I have spoken of before. But I don’t want to bring her into this. It has nothing to do directly with her.

Scottie and I decided we needed to have a particular dinner party with very special guests. The list, as you know, included as hosts, Scottie, Alison and myself. Our guests were you, Annie, and your husband Alex and daughter Rainer, my friend Lady Chablis, and our special guest Jamie Stansfield, our hero Carter from Brief Sacrifice.

At the party, we broke off into pairs. I spent time with Jamie. Scottie talks with Alex. Rainer hangs out with Alison. You, Annie, hang out with my friend Lady Chablis, the famous actress, not to be named here. You must have enjoyed her company. She is fabulous. I hope Alex enjoyed Scottie’s company.

I went off and got stoned with Jamie. I needed to. Someone needed to kiss someone. I felt attracted to Jamie already but the kiss secured it. Jamie kissed me and I wanted it. My usual withdrawal to anything physical, especially physical touching leading to anything sexual freaks me out on the inside only. I never show anybody it bothers me to be touched. It doesn’t stop them. So why should I let them know how being touched affects me. It leaves one too exposed for anyone to know.

Jamie caught me off-guard when she brought her face close to mine. My breathing became shallow. Jamie took my face into her hands. Her lips touched mine very gently. My insides were all in a muddle. I was melting from the heat filling my body up. I hadn’t felt this deep a physical feeling since that day. A day needing a lifetime of therapy. Not the day She died in my arms. That was love. I mean when one of my abusers did the worse thing you can do to a child against their will. I really can’t talk about it now. Too painful. Too shameful. Something that never should have happened and been stole from me. A memory that warped my mind, haunts my every memory, and flashes behind my eyes at the mere feeling of it.

I took Jamie’s hand, led her to my study, where I locked the door. Jamie sat down on the settee. I went to get two glasses, a bottle of brandy, and a pipe filled with some fine cannabis. I have a prescription for my nerves and the pain in my back. Haven’t I ever mentioned the Medicinal Marijuana? It helps with my memory, too. Right now, all I have left is a scar on my back.

Steel stabbed through my body that night. I lost so much blood I came close to walking the white road. But what was worse, the woman I wished for, I dreamed of, I had, was stolen from me that night. My wound healed on the outside but my life was still stolen when her life was taken away from me. That is my selfish attitude. Of course, I know she was stolen from the rest of the world inside her life. Even if they were worthless, with maybe one exception, the rest tried to suck out her soul. I protected her by not letting them near her. That was what she wanted. But when that wasn’t enough they tried to kill me but she put herself between us.

Does anyone ever get over being murdered? Or having someone save your life by sacrificing theirs?

I am moving past this into the next passage, where I am going to get subliminally graphic. Just thought I would put in a WARNING ALERT. I feel a need to describe it. Bare with me. Jamie and I have entered into my study slash library. So, back to Jamie, if you will.

“Here we are, Jamie. Take a glass, please.” I poured her glass first. After placing my drink on the edge of the desk, I took out the pipe I had filled with pot. It had a similar effect to that of Thai weed. Do you remember it? I took one hit, passed the pipe and lighter to Jamie. When she smoked her hit, she carefully put the pipe on the desk. I motioned Jamie to sit closer.

Her body now touched mine. The sensation made my heart pound. I could feel it in my throat. Jamie’s hand began caressing the length of my neck. I reached my right hand around to the back of Jamie’s neck and brought her head close to my face. Our lips touched in slow motion. Feeling the change of their shape as the pressures varied and our mouths blended together. A feeling of an endless embrace, falling into the sensation, with no parting of lips ever to come. The depth of feelings traveling from my lips through my body, were nothing I had felt before. Everything was so new and alive. Her hands found places on my body where her skin melted through my clothing into my body. We had joined together as if one being possessed by another in a permanent embrace. No ending, just eternity.

Feeling all of this was a total surprise for me. I have desired feeling this way and never found a person I trusted enough to surrender to in this way. I love Scottie but she never understood my need for her to be patient. She was rough in as gentle a way as possible. But with Jamie, it was soft and sensual. No one ever touched me this way, not since the night my elusive dream was stolen. Dreams are what they are. I woke up and it was over. My life disappeared until I met Scottie. With her I regained life. One with safety and security and a very active sex life. One we enjoyed while high on drugs and alcohol.

It was a creative sex life. We experimented, trying anything new that seemed it would be exciting. But something was missing. Not anything inside of Scottie. It was inside of me, or better expressed, something missing from inside of my mind and body. A disconnection that occurred at a specific moment in the touch of love making. It was when my body wanted to give up control. My mind wouldn’t let go and my body followed. All shut down abruptly and completely. It was the end of feeling anything.

A dilemma which has consistently occurred throughout my life. It all started with one particular abuser. He stole something one cannot find after it has been taken. It was more than rape. It was stealing my sexual freedom. The art of completely letting go. Something most people desire in their life. I am able to do it with my painting and writing but not with my body. She doesn’t belong to me. Maybe it even does effect my art.

Jamie has reawakened something in me that only one other person was able to find. A complete abandon and enjoyment of freedom and letting go, releasing the spirit to scream in ecstasy, joy and bliss.

It may not be fair to Scottie. Never have I been with anyone sexually, where I willingly wanted someone to touch me. More than willingly. I could not resist wanting her hands on my body. Her lips touching mine. I wanted to be consumed by her. I wanted us to melt into each other where our energy and souls became one forever. Never to separate again.

I describe wanting her to touch me. She wasn’t the only one who wanted to touch someone. My hands wanted to reach out and touch her face, to make sure she was real, not in my imagination. Her skin was warm. Touching her skin made me feel electric. The nerves inside of me were lit by currents of energy. Every connection in my body was flowing together. I wanted to be lost in her forever.

I knew the moment must end. Life would return to normal but it was normal. I felt something alive and real. Someone who understood my fear and magically made it disappear. It’s not being sexual that brought me back to life. It was letting the touch in, and allowing myself to be free to feel her hands on my skin and inside my flesh. It was the joining of love.

I love Jamie. I always felt her specialness. We are soul mates of a different kind. Not what books are written about. No one writes about being made to feel whole with someone else, without it having to be sexual. It is a bonding that merges power and spiritual energy. A sharing of being alive and feeling real. It isn’t easy to do and is rarer than it should be. I have found it three times in my life. We all mistake sex for love. Sex is sex. Love may happen when sex is happening. But Love stands strongly on its own. Love is the power that makes everything alive and real. It is what I have been searching for my entire life. It is so special but rare. Be gentle when you find it. I hope I have found it with Jamie.

Don’t lose hope, Annie. I love Scottie and want to be with her beyond the beyond. But I want to be with Jamie, too. And all those people who I feel close with now and I have felt bonded with in my past. A short list but one I will feel connected to forever.

I have reached the end of this letter. There will be more. It is an interesting read, I am quite certain you found that out Annie.

But that is all for now.

“Time for time and traveling with circuses must end. It is time to soar through the time barrier into all moments in the Universe.”

So, until I see you, I end with my favorite quote from the film Brief Sacrifice.

Before the end, I would like to send a thought to Jamie with all my love. I want to say to her, if I had the courage, I would tell you, it isn’t about sex at all. My abusers planted the dark seed inside of me and it blocked out the light so I could not see what was real. Just a distortion came through of moderating sex by ascribing it as the only way love is expressed. But that is a lie. It truly is not about sex. It is about bonding and feeling whole with the person you love. All relationships are different. The ones which make you come alive and feel real inside are rare. Treat them with respect and give freely of your love. This is the purist of feelings and the richest of relationships. A friendship created from out of the depths of pure love.

“The Greatest Thing You’ll Ever Learn Is Just To Love And Be Loved In Return.”

“Time can be folded and joined with all elements in all places as the one ultimate moment when time is all at once. In this place everything happens on a continual loop following into a continuum of time forever into infinity. In the “Silver Box,” there is contained the ability to draw time into itself and create the perfect infinite moment.”

I end this letter in “the moment between seconds.”

Love Fondly,

Madison

Fated Attraction
By Madison Taylor
19th August 2008

Fated attraction
Confusing reaction
To a retraction
Of loving contraction

Voices I hear now
Speak your name clear now
The word is you love me
It’s something you can’t see

One day when you wake up
You’ll see what was once ours
Possibilities of pure love
Beyond time this love endures

Have you really left me?
Leaving unfinished memories
The pain I’ve been feeling undeniably true
I live now in my nightmare without you

A WRITER’S WORD

Anais Nin

Anais Nin on Proust

If what
Proust said
is true,

that happiness
is the absence
of fever,

then I will
never know
happiness.

For I am
possessed
by a fever

for knowledge,
experience,
and
creation.

I think
I have
an immediate
awareness
in living

which is far
more terrible
and more
painful.

There is
no time
lapse,

no distance
between me
and
the present.

Instantaneous
awareness.

But it is
also true
that
when
I write

afterwards,
I see
much more,

I understand
better,

I develop
and
enrich.

I live
more
on time.

What is
remembered
later

does not
seem
as true
to me.

I have
such
a need
of truth!

It must
be
that need
of immediate
recording

which
incites
me
to write
almost
while
I
am
living,

before
it is
altered,

changed
by distance
or
time.

No One Expects…
By Jennifer Kiley
29th January 2014

Serious moments
Coercion in practice
Pulling me closer
Building my trust
Hearts crushing
Veins crashing
Got to move on now

Doors slamming shut
You closed me out
Cold is your blood
Left me lying there
Sinking in the cold
Wet mud
The quicksand
With no gravity

No one expects love
To rust
To turn in to
Distrust
Must I think of you?
Everywhere I look
You haunt me there
You stare
With blank eyes
You don’t care

A mirage is seen
A message echoing
Inside a recording
Shadows following
Words whispering
Sounds out loud

Are you there?
Did you ever care?
Were you visiting?
And just resisting
Trying emotions
Wrestling with honesty?

Can’t bear your shadow
Near me
Testing me
Trying to steal
Enticing away
Those I love

Sending her
To stalk me
To break me down
Find what’s touching off
Thoughts inside my brain

Your vibration
Your excitation
Has it been easy
Trying to destroy me
You so easily
Implore me

What can you find?
What’s left?
In my mind
The rest is crazy
Gone mad
You made me

Like you had
Gone mad
Only bad
It’s sad
What was your destiny?

To be small
Nothing big enough
At all
You won’t reach those heights
You’ll never get there
And I don’t care

Is it meant
for me instead?
Believing
Isn’t wrong
Dreaming

Thoughts working
Their way in the mind
Thinking alone
For the self

Dreaming the dream
Is a gift to the soul
For giving life
