• Gary Oldman. I first saw him in The Fifth Element, portraying Zorg as an admirably evil antagonist, but he really won me over in Dracula as the title character, where he plays both the young count, desperately seeking Mina's love, and the decrepit older version, broken by his own bloodlust and vengefulness.
I actually had another post entirely written for this, but then this morning – October 10th, a day that will live in infamy – I fell in love. This is not entirely unusual, but I did it having never seen the face of the man in question, while he talked to my friend who was standing in his cabin typing what he said to me. There’s a serious dose of the cold flutters in this feeling, but it’s still there while I’m writing and I wonder – what is love, anyway? Where on EARTH does it come from?
