The letter K [20140204|14:07]

Because I need a diversion, my responses to my meme assignment from [personal profile] magister are below.

Something I hate: I’m not fond of “hate”, as too much effort is typically spent on hating things. Allow me to substitute it with “loathe”, by which I mean “things/people whom I don’t spent an inordinate amount of time thinking about, but which/who irritate me when they do spring to mind”. And thus, my answer: The Keymaster of Gozer. Seriously, how annoying, persistent and creepy was that guy in Ghostbusters. I hold Pacific Rim responsible for bringing him into the forefront of my consciousness recently. I enjoyed the film immensely but it gets an F- for its horrible, stereotypical portrayal of scientists, especially the dude who reminded me of the bloomin’ Keymaster of Gozer.

Something I love: Kurosawa films. Rocks fall. Everyone dies. But they do it so poignantly, so gracefully, so inevitably, against such a stunning cinematographic backdrop.

Somewhere I have been: Kaua’i, the Hawai’ian island featured in Lilo & Stitch. I was lucky enough to spend portions of my childhood there, and it is truly one of the most beautiful places in the world.

Somewhere I would like to go: Kyoto. My mother went there forty-odd years ago as part of her trip around the world, and it is one of the places she speaks of frequently and with fondness.

Someone I know: I have several Kates in my life and they are all wonderful. If I believed that a name could magically transfer all the qualities of my Kates to a child, I would name my next daughter Kate.

Best director: This was “best movie”, but as I couldn’t find anything satisfactory beginning with K, I’m changing it so that I can nominate Krzysztof Kieslowski, director of several of my favourite films ever, the Trois Couleurs series, of which my favourite is the beautiful, romantic and (mostly) happy Red, starring Irene Jacob.

ETA: Whoops, forgot to append: If you want a letter, please leave a comment!

Wow, I don't dislike the Keymaster that much. Or the scientists from Pacific Rim, for that matter... :P

Hit me with a letter!

Ha, I don't know why I disliked the poor Keymaster so much either. The PR scientists, on the other hand, I understand perfectly. Heh.

Please take an "S"!
