But I'm A Cheerleader!

So ages ago my bossman Bobby at FutureClaw (Hi bossman, you are the greatest bossman ever!!!) recommended the film But I'm A Cheerleader! to me after I gushed about Repo: The Genetic Opera (another GREAT FILM OF GREAT PROPORTIONS OF GREATNESS) and basically it was the perfect recommendation because it is a great film also of greatness and greatery. Here are some screencaps!! I am so in love with this film!! Gratuitous exclamation points are necessary to describe my love!!!! They aren't in order because Blogger is stupid but I think if you want to watch the movie (WHICH YOU SHOULD) it's better that way anyway.

Do I really need to go into the ways this is great? No? Okay I didn't think so.

Pink PVS Trenchcoat. I mean. I MEAN.

You know the Victorian in LIFE? The board game?? I always cheated to get that house and this house is the BETTER version of that house only it EXISTS which makes it even BETTER.

So in love. SO IN LOVE

Room inspiration vibes from 2011 into forever 


I loved this movie instantly. It's campy and dark in a funny way and obviously so up my alley aesthetically. It kinda reminds me of Suspira in it's campy dark humor. I think Dario Argento would dig this film, maybe. It's just so film nerdy!!! I love movies so much. My favorite thing to do is to go to the old cinema and smell the old cushions and stare at the super beautiful ceiling and watch movies. When I was going through rough times in senior year of high school I'm pretty sure I spent more time at the Loews Landmark Theatre than I did at home.

I watched this over winter break.... I spent most of my break just recovering from college and building up my own happy little black hole of creativity... watching movies every day that I love, writing for hours, listening to good mixtapes and LP's in my attic with some hot cocoa, making and reading zines, shopping (TOO MUCH SHOPPING.), being happy being myself, completely.

A lot of people I know seem to be terrified of being alone with themselves, ya know?? Like, they go insane if they have to be in the house by themselves for two days. I totally love being by myself. I am my own favorite person to hang out with. My favorite events have happened when I am by myself (hohohoho)! I love ice skating by myself, I love walking around Jersey City by myself, I love exploring Taipei by myself, I love walking around New York City by myself, I love sitting on the roof at four a.m by myself. Have you ever gone to the Museum by yourself? It is also one of my favorite things. I hate going to the museum with other people because then you have to compromise on how long you're going to take at each exhibit, etc etc and that is just not my vibe. If I want to sit in front of a painting for an hour, I'm gonna do it, and if I'm with someone else at a museum they'd probably hate waiting around for me.

look a video to break up text

Being an only child is pretty excellent if only for the fact you are pretty much accustomed to solitude and think of it as a luxury more than glaring evidence of how you have failed at being a social being who goes out and has fun with other people. (for example: fashion parties? AHHHHH I'M ALWAYS THE YOUNGEST AND DRESSED NOT IN BLACK IT'S SO AWKWARD!!!! i avoid them at all costs).

When you are unimpressed with the people around you, you basically come to the conclusion being around people who you don't mesh with can be draining and poor company. And I have concluded, that it is better to have no company than be in poor company! My standards are very high if only because I have a horrible temper and it is unleashed far too often! Maybe I'm just a jerk??

we are so kindred with this aloneless theory, I've been described by people as a 'lone duck.' What does that even mean?

I'm much like you with the museum bit except with shopping. I like to shop like a maniac, either really fast or painfully slow, so shopping with people is a nightmare. Don't you HATE when you're shopping with company and they're like, "Show me everything you try on!"

You're not alone in this aloneness, there are other loner girls out there who entertain themselves solo and at this moment it is being achieved through your blog, thanks!

I am really the same way in terms of your lifestyle. You summed up everything pretty well. I'm also an only child - also rather introspective and reflective by nature - perhaps that is the common denominator.
A lot of people think it's weird, but I actually enjoy the comfort and meditative grace of isolation. It sounds cryptic but being alone is more consoling rather than depressing to me. I also agree with you that it contributes to creativity (I think a lot of monks do it while writing, making art, etc.). It is nice to know someone else feels the same way.

I first saw this flick back in seventh grade and it defined everything for me for the next two years. It was great!
Now just make sure there's Vaseline next to you when your alone with the internet, OMG DURDY haha
It is such a great thing being alone though. But I haven't done the museum thing alone though. It's definitely the next thing on my to-do list.

As long as I have the Internet I don't need to hang out with anyone. Everytime I try I usually end up regretting it or just being very I could take it or leave it about the whole thing.

I used to cheat to get the Victorian as well haha.

I thinks that is a wonderful conclusion. And that that is a wonderful movie.
I think people who can't be alone are weak and pathetic :)
wait, did that come out too harsh?

Dominika said...

oh, these pictures are just amazing!

I don't get how you can go buy things with other people.
I'm not saying I won't like that, just that I don't get the concept.
I thought it'd just be that you go in the same shop with other people and buy your stuffs with money put in common, but apparently it's not that.
Anyway, liked the movie as well.

i watched this movie a few years ago and remember thinking how great it was b/c of the premise and the sets and costumes were just amazing. being with myself is one of my favorite things too! i am my own consultant as weezy would say (yes, i just quoted weezy).
