A virtual tour of an underwater resort. Who wants to go on vacation?

And here's the first response to Jounal Advertisements , I got. From your fellow user yellow_iodine . She writes movie recs for the website: www.wakingdesire.com

And her specific area is here:

:) So go have a read. I especially love that she wrote about Sunset Boulevard. One of my faves!

And I especially love her tips for looking at your own life like it's a movie. :)

" • Know Your Desired Ending(s)! Storyboard it, See it, Let it be BIG. Every good character has a motivation. ALWAYS feel free to edit. Be open to twists, turns and surprises. Practice being the director and the audience.
• Describe the main character. Do a love confession, and list all your favorite quirks (i.e., Harry met Sally)
• Use “bad times”—hangover, when you are “beating yourself up”, boring times, times of loss--as good material. Step out of your head, observe yourself and your surroundings, and describe what’s going on.
• When a crisis comes up, when you are thwarted in some way, remind yourself that this is “plot thickener.”
• Notice the artistic quality of your day, i.e., putting on makeup, arranging the dinner table, the path you walk every day.
• Set your life to music. What music are you drawn to? Where does the music take you? (New York, New York? A hot date?)
• Try critiquing your life as a movie. Does it have heart? Is it boring? Where is it going? If your life was a movie and you were an actor, what kinds of risks would you take? "

So this leads to the question, randommers. If your life were a movie, what genre would it be?

Mine would undoubtedly be a musical.

Have you ever seen Stranger Than Fiction? If so do you remember the part where Harold Crick is trying to figure out if his life is a tragedy or a comedy? That's a little of what my life is like.

I have seen that movie. Love it. I hope that it has enough of both comedy and tragedy to make it compelling, my love. *hugs*

My life would be a indie dramedy. (independant/drama/comedy) With lots of zany obscure humour, awesome soundtrack, surreal dream/fantasy sequences and rip your heart out emotion. And animated artsy cut scenes, I like me some cut scenes. :)

I guess the best film references would be Spun, House on Haunted Hill (the remake), and the Naked Gun movie series. Good stuff. :)

What genre . . . somewhere between sci-fi conspiracy and modern fantasy, on my bad days, and somewhere between romantic comedy and medical drama on my good days.

Or it could be a musical . . . in any of the above-mentioned genres!

Have you ever seen the movie waiting? Take that, replace the setting and cast with a college and journalism students(mostly), I guess that what my life is like. So comedy/drama.

You know I wanna go!

An ex and I had reserved a spot at the underwater residence in Key Largo when it was being run as an summer camp for divers type of thing by (sort of) Scott Carpenter, the astronaut. But ex and I broke up, and I canceled. HUUUUGE mistake that!

BTW, sorry about your own breakup. :((

Aww, that's a bummer. *hugs* You shoulda gone anyway. Seems like a really neat thing to do. Breakups can definitely throw things out of orbit though.

Take 1 part Kevin Smith, 1 part David Lynch, and 1 part Igmar Bergman. Add a singalong soundtrack, and this is my life.

while the underwater resort is an awesome idea, there's no way i could handle staying there. i'm getting mildly claustrophobic merely thinking about lying in bed and looking up at all that water over me.

the weird thing is that as a kid i had no claustrophobia issues. i remember going through some really narrow places in the mountains on a birthday trip and loving it. now, enclosed spaces seriously bug me.

no..i always had minor heights issues, which have become moderate issues though i still love the mountains. the claustrophobia just gradually came on.
