71- Wind River and Annabelle Creation

It’s a two-man show today as Jamie’s working the majority of this week! We discuss the Sundance hit, Wind River, as well as the Box Office King of August (a little prognostication, but I’m not far off): Annabelle Creation.

 

Does Wind River have Oscar Buzz? (It better!) Will a sequel to a spinoff from a guy who spent years making shorts in his house in Sweden be the scariest movie of 2017 (likely, yes).

 

Then, Jamie talks about his #52PickUp, Don’t Tell Mom the Babysitter’s Dead.

 

You all may have first heard about Christina Applegate during her run on Married With Children, but I first fell in love with her here.

 

Opening and a Special Announcement! (Starts at 00:00)

Alex– Wind River (1:48)

Tim’s Communal– Annabelle Creation [With Spoilers] (10:18)

I despised all of these medical sidesteps; I just wanted to live a normal life. I knew that I didn’t want to become a hypochondriac, but how can someone who personally experienced all that I did be okay with the knowledge that – at any moment – this could all come crashing down?

 

I had it fairly easy as a kid all things considered, but I consumed food like an opulent King every single day and luckily, my body was able to bounce back. Only until it was literally able to bounce.

 

Even then, I hardly exercised and my life goals were minimal. At what point would the other shoe drop? Well, it turned out that point was at age eighteen when my life had been reset. I was now left picking up the pieces of my old way of living and aimlessly looking for a new puzzle frame.

Rediscovering You

Today, I was reminded that in life, we all need that certain “Je nais se quoi;” the element of our lives that centers us– one returns us to true ourselves.

For many, this form of zen is yoga. For some, hiking comes to mind. Swimming. Biking. Walking a dog. There are many ways in which we can calm ourselves and get in touch with nature and our bodies. My method is gardening. There is nothing quite like the feeling of getting close to the Earth and interacting with soil, whilst nurturing living things during the course of their entire lives. It is truly unlike anything else I can do– Well, except for writing.

My mind pushed out tragic thoughts of the house fire and instead continued churning its gleeful slideshow of happy memories set to upbeat pop music. It was like an Aunt who returned from vacation and a shitty house DJ all rolled into one. But every so often, the lingering anxiety would rear its ugly head, penetrating the very stability I had once thought I possessed.

 

Late one night, I began to worry about my throat closing up and sure enough, the feeling returned. I tried to fight it off, knowing that the feeling was likely due to the thought of it, but by then, it was too late.
