La Belle Laide

Aloha, my name is JulesKD and my real home is here. I use this just to follow people and things I think are nifty.

I am a single Mom by choice to a lovely boy born 5/16/13.

Also I'm a novelist in search of an agent, growing a pair refining my query letter.

Stuff I care about: Being art, through Kung Fu (choy lei fuht, broadsword and staff, light-contact sparring, trapping, and forms,) and through dance (Hula/Polynesian.) Human rights, equality, and the freedom of choice for all. Health and wellness, not only for me, but for everyone. I think you have to fight for those things and not just bitch about them. Science, animal rights, availability of information, sustainable living. Movies, music, art, and how best to have fun and adventures. Laughter, friends, joy. I root for the underdog.

Stuff I don't care about: what's fashionable, cooing at myself in the mirror, (I avoid the mirror as much as possible,) who's banging whom. I try my best to avoid toxic stuff like magazines.

Oh, and finally I'm a massage therapist and I love my job! So I could tell you a story, make you feel awesome, dance a Hula, or I could leg-sweep you and punch you in the face. YOU NEVER KNOW.

Ask me anything
The (500) Days of Summer attitude of “He wants you so bad” seems attractive to some women and men, especially younger ones, but I would encourage anyone who has a crush on my character to watch it again and examine how selfish he is. He develops a mildly delusional obsession over a girl onto whom he projects all these fantasies. He thinks she’ll give his life meaning because he doesn’t care about much else going on in his life. A lot of boys and girls think their lives will have meaning if they find a partner who wants nothing else in life but them. That’s not healthy. That’s falling in love with the idea of a person, not the actual person.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt (x)

Ugh, I’m sorry to double post with two quotes, but he’s dropping another truth bomb here. I hate when people misinterpret 500DOS and think of Summer as some kind of bitch, or, alternately, as a Manic Pixie Dream Girl. That’s only how his character saw her. To me, this movie was basically about Nice Guy Syndrome: A guy who thinks he’s just so nice that he’s entitled to the woman he wants, and when she decides she doesn’t want him back, she becomes a bitch, or a whore.
