Are you on the regular bus, or the short bus?

I just finished watching Shortbus-- a film by John Cameron Mitchell about these couples of varying sexual preference who go on their own journeys of self-discovery. For those who have seen Hedwig and the Angry Inch, this is the same director. Both very compelling and well thought out movies. Shortbus was pretty explicit, but I'm rather perverted myself so I didn't mind one bit. Some bits of it were literally laugh-out-loud funny, but the only reason I laughed out loud was because they were sexual jokes, but hey, that's just my kind of humor. Some parts were also very sad, but I can't give the movie away if you plan on watching it, which you should if you enjoy transvestite and gay-laden movies like I do!

And of course I'm procrastinating on writing an essay, but hey, movies that make you contemplate life and love are far more beneficial than writing about how political parties came about through two bitchy men named Hamilton and Jefferson that couldn't stop arguing with each other.

One thing you might want to know first off is the definition of 'misanthropy' for at the moment, that is the sort-of motto that I go by. I'm a pretty pessimistic person, and it seems like that is becoming all the more prevalent lately, so don't expect happy exciting posts from me. That's not the way I am. That's not the way my brain chemicals arrange themselves--into a smile or heart. No, rather, they make up a gruesome picture of some sort of demon, perhaps with long curling horns and seven rows of serrated teeth, but you'll come to know that creature soon enough.

Well, what does 'misanthropy' mean? In short, the hatred of humankind. You read that correctly. This extends to all homo sapiens, even including myself. Can you taste the pessimism yet? We'll get there, don't worry.

You ask me why my motto is such? Aren't there good aspects to humans and the world in general? Well, yes...and no. But we'll go into details later. We have all the time in the world for that.

Welcome to my blog. Welcome to the inside of my mind and all that makes up the terrible twisted person of Kendra. I've always enjoyed writing, and lately have felt that creating a journal of some sort on the internet so I can write more quickly and efficiently than handwriting would be beneficial to me. We'll see how this goes though. We'll see how this goes.

Bienvenidos, mis amigos.
