I saw that for the first time last week, and it is absolutely stunning. What a wonderful, wonderful film.

The Hollow Girl

 

The hollow girl

She swallowed a fly

It buzzed and buzzed

And tickled her eyes

 

The hollow girl

She swallowed a spider

It spun a web

Goss’mer inside her

Caught the fly

Drained the fly

Found her heart

And began to bite her

 

The hollow girl

She swallowed a rat

Drooled its rabies

Twitching and scratch

Caught the spider

Ate the spider

Found her lungs

And began to attack

 

The hollow girl

She swallowed a snake

A hissing venom

Rattling quake

Bit the rat

Ate the rat

Found her stomach

And began to serrate

 

The hollow girl

She swallowed an owl

The fiercest bird

Tallons that prowl

Ripped the snake

Tore the snake

Found her brain

And began to afoul

 

The hollow girl

Fed up and torn

Swallowed a human

A screaming worm

Humans die

Girls they smile

For the hollow girl

Was no longer hollow

 

I wrote this at work today over the span of maybe half an hour while I was letting some stuff export from Adobe Premiere. I was listening to a podcast, and someone mentioned this old folk song about an old lady eating a fly, then a spider, then a rat, etc. Each ate the previous item. It was a funny song though, a kind of nursery rhyme, and I wanted to do something else. I did something else. I won't sit here and tell you it's amazing, but it was a fun way to pass the time on a Friday.

Since I last posted I've seen Logan, Guardians of the Galaxy 2, and Alien Covenant. All three are pretty flawed in one way or another, with Alien: Covenant being downright dreadful.

 

I can't remember what I didn't like about Logan because it's so fucking forgettable, Guardians had a weak villain and no real weight to any of its character arcs, and Alien: Covenant was just bad in pretty much every way it could be as far as story goes. At least it looked pretty I guess.

 

Been a bad year for movies.
