Life is sometimes so peculiar. I lose and gain words at the drop of a hat. I wish I had energy for things one moment and the next don’t. I’d love to have the control to tell my brain what to do. I mock myself in my head then argue back at how rude that is to myself. I worry about others only to wonder how much I should worry about myself.

: Bruno Dumont's LI'L QUINQUIN (2014) France - 206 minutes. . MY REVIEW: In a rural French seaside town a dismembered human body is found stuffed inside a cow. Investigating the case, like some goofy alternate universe version of Inspector Clouseau, is Captain Van der Weyden of the County Sheriff's office. With his lifting eyebrows, continuous deep eye blinking, facial twitching and exaggerated changing expressions..I realized early on that something was going on in this guy's head but also was left wondering if the lights were on but no one was really home. It's fairly amusing stuff as this character tries to take his role as authority figure seriously when no one else completely accepts him that way. Assisting him is his driver Lieutenant Carpentier, lacking experience as a gendarme but still possibly the more grounded of the two...hard to tell for sure because he seems to have his own little nutty issues going on. . The title character Li'l Quinquin is a somewhat odd boy, himself, living in this farming community. He and his friends do come across as more normal than many of the adults but seem to find trouble with some regularity. Typical children, really, trying to cope with their environment and the strange situations occurring. Theirs is a second storyline blending with the first as they try to make sense of what is happening in their rural town while going about their own explorations of people and life in general. . The film has many oddball characters who are different shades of disturbed, which feeds into the absurdist humor cropping up amidst Dumont's usual troubling ascetic and understated character interactions. The ongoing bizarre mystery keeps it all interesting as well. The ending...I didn't know what to make of the ending. At first it left me shaking my head...while smiling. Then trying not to laugh out loud. And finally I thought this is a perfect way for this film to end. . Of what I've seen, this is the best film Bruno Dumont has made to date. With this he may have found a new filmmaking strength by trying to more directly interject comedy elements into a film...his type of film, keep in mind. Excellent, don't miss this one. . 8.5 out of 10.

“If you’re in the Fitness industry you need to make your social media sexy” On it. The boudoir shoot that literally no one asked for is here 😂 Fair warning, pic 3 may leave mental scars. Long day on the road capped off by turning up with a dozen @krispykreme donuts for a contacts staff only to find they are almost all coeliac. FML. Now holed up in the hipster anti-hotel that is Z, staunchly refusing to join all the other laptop and sketch pad wielding oddballs for the complimentary cheese and wine... it’s a contrarians life indeed! I’m off for haggis supper from Blue Lagoon chipper. #makersmovement #maker #gymequipment #travel #smallbusiness #igfit #werkwerkwerk #design #drawing #makersgonnamake #manobviouslydrivesavolvo #absurdist #hipsters #trash #scotland #manufacturing #sketchpad #fitfam #paperandsteel #gls #gavinlairdstrength #bidness

Mimi likes to sunbathe in the morning. She plops down on the deck and absorbs the warm rays of the sun, only getting up to reveal her other side to the calming energy. Then, after a calming respite, she goes back inside to rape me while I sleep. #darkdrydrew #darkhumor #dryhumor #comedy #jokes #memes #shitpost #funny #obeselymorbid #offensive #obscure #absurdist #weird #odd #strange #creepy #standup #standupcomedy #satire #metal #horror #scary #horrormovies #dogs #dogsofinstagram #dogstagram #doggo #doge #dachshund #dachshundsofinstagram

book 1 en route. she short but she cute. an anthology of absurd short stories that range anywhere from a lady holding in a fart to a narcissist not noticing an impending nuclear apocalypse. Mark wrote it, Mark designed it, Mark did it but all with the support of my incredible friends. stay tuned for fall launch party details, it’s going to be quite the affair. . 🧚🏼‍♀️ . . . #writers #writersofinstagram #writersofig #writerscommunity #growth #harukimurakami #literature #darkhumor #surviving #inspiration #inspire #wordporn #creativity #sharing #book #bookstagram #author #authorsofinstagram #publishing #torontoartists #absurdist #absurd #absurdism #design #bookcover #coverart #typography #shortstories #fiction #anthology
A few shots from our weekend in Stroud trying out our new dystopian fantasy show Welcome to the Future! . After a stressful couple weeks throwing bits together and hastily re-writing we had loads of fun doing this and great crowds and we're going to go and develop this and hopefully do it elsewhere. So keep an eye out! . #stroudtheatrefestival #futurism #comedytheatre #absurdist #childrenstheatre

Cake the Wheel - Absurdist sculpture that demanded to exist when I was playing with clay for another project.

🔖My take: Must read, the hype is real 🔖Review: METAMORPHOSIS by FRANZ KAFKA 🔖Genre: Absurdist Fiction I had a particular format in my head that I planned to use for reviewing my books, but for this one I am just going to write all that I felt while turning pages, Society isn't familiar with the idea of different and unique, we straightaway end up judging people on the basis of their looks. Why just stick to people, every other thing that looks weird to our eyes is unacceptable to be owned or around us; no one wants an ugly dress, cup, flower, pet, child etc. You might be sitting in a corner minding your own business and still someone may have problems with you, that's fact. Franz Kafka has just managed to indirectly rub those facts on our faces. 🔖Rating- PS:You don't rate Kafka, still for the youngsters 10/5 🔖Age Suitability: preteens and above . . . . . #purnimadubey #purnimasays #purnimareads #metamorphosis #franzkafka #bookreview #bookblog #booklove #bookstagramindia #bookish #bookstagram #booksofinstagram #mumbaibookstagram #bookblogger #reviewer #readabook #absurdist #fiction #booklove #booknerd #books 📚 #booksuggestions

Mimi is our miniature dachshund, and she enjoys chasing squirrels, chewing stuffed animals, and attempting to rape me while I'm sleeping.

Faux Bitter & Disheveled Heaux: Chris Elliott as "Marlon Brando" (to host David Letterman): "Aaaaah, you stuck me with another witty jab!" This was the worst celebrity impression I'd ever seen - which made it the BEST.
