Just got word that FEAST OF MUM is coming down from sunny Brisbane for the Feast of Dan game show. Okay, NOW I’m nervous.
Day 158 - Dealbreaker
When you know things are too good to be true, once your suspicion is proven right you’re as much disappointed as you are relieved to find out you were right in the first place, and also intrigued to know just how. This case is most common in the early days of a really great relationship. Following several dates you’ll be convinced that this person is so good looking and witty and...
So, my quiet morning at work just saw me reading about the last 20 of your Feast...– Lara Cresser @lcillustration
Day 157 - JUMP!
This week two very lovely people in my life are heading off to New York for a month - to celebrate their honeymoon. If 6 months ago I suggested that this would be the case, each response would’ve been more “I wish” than “I know”. Yet in the words of the great Janet Jackson, that’s the way love goes. I’m not wrong in saying that each party acknowledges...
Day 156 - Needs More Vagina.
Undoubtedly THE biggest flaw of Feast of Love is the discontinuation of Jenny and Catherine’s relationship. I’m fully aware of how at times I’m prone to hate on Feast of Love - just like anything you’d have to do every day. Yet it occurred to me today that I’d have much less beef with this project if the moments of hot lesbian interactions extended (no pun intended)...
Shit. I just caught myself singing along to one of the songs in this silly movie.
Day 155 - The Nose Knows
With or without a doubt, it’s far better to find out than to never know. Just last week I was out to dinner with a very, very good friend of mine. So after copious amounts of food plates and glasses of wine she spots a waitress who, to my ignorance, had been glancing at our table for the majority of the night. As a straight male I personally didn’t want to “hit it”, though...
Day 154 - Dog Eat Relationship
You’ll never ever realise just how bad something can be, until you’re in it yourself. And right on cue, the little guy proves my point. For this whole week I’m taking care of one of the cutest, noisiest and inquisitive French bulldogs going round. I’ve never been the owner of a pet, as in, yes I’ve had a cat and a dog and a fish and a budgie when I was young but I...
The F-E-A-S-T-O-L-V keys on my Mac are fading fast.
Day 153 - Break-Up Films
Every time you experience some bullshit, it’s comforting to know you can always come home to something. Sunday night, for what could easily be the 20th time, I watched High Fidelity. I’ve been around a while and so during this time, this little gem of “Men Rule!” filmmaking has become somewhat of a haven for me - my “break-up film”, if you will. I can almost...
Day 152 - 2 Much 2 Soon
Further proof that (most) men don’t need much in order to get the juices flowing. It’s a shame that we never hear about Chloe’s background. And what’s an even bigger shame is that Oscar sees no need in seeking such. On the very night of their first meeting (you know, the night were Chloe goes back to Oscar’s house and sleeps with him and the theme of her never...
Day 151 - Making a Great Salad
I’m sitting here watching Feast of Love and, perhaps inspired by last night’s blog, all I can think about is how I have no idea what to make for dinner. I would like a really good salad. Yet, I lack any great experience eating salads let alone making my own, so I’ll feel like a real amateur if I attempt one. Say I were a man of many salads, I’d know instantly what flavours...
Day 150 - Fake It Till You Break It
If you’re heart’s not in it, chances are it never will. It’s 7:30pm on a Friday night. Following one too many after-work drinks, you’re en route to a night on the couch with some dinner, a few DVD’s, and some “me” time. The most anticipated of these is dinner, where you’re pretty freaking excited to get in the kitchen and git kreative. Though with a...
Day 149 - Short AND Sweet
Sometimes in life all you actually really need, is to be assured that you’re doing okay. Anyone who knows me, well anyone who knows me in real life at least, is aware that I’ve been through a pretty effed up few months. Add to this the fact that I’ve still had to watch this freaking movie everyday and yeah, you could say it’s been a pretty heavy year so far. That’s...
Sometimes it’s just kinda like coming home to see an old friend.
You never know how precious something is until you break it. Like a pinky toe. Or a heart.
The final credit music of Feast of Love is just the best piece of music ever recorded.
“I should be watching Feast of Love right now” has quickly become my most common thought of 2012.
Day 148 - Take My Advcie.
When offering advice to those so desperately seeking it, you not only run the risk of coming across too blunt, but also having it be misinterpreted. In “Feast of Love”, Chloe seeks the advice of a fortune teller who’s advice for her just may be a prime example of this. In this scene, said batshit crazy fortune teller attempts to put Chloe’s mind at ease in regards to her...
