So Dave and I do this thing where we write comments on each other’s Blog of Funny Names posts before they’re published.* It feels a lot like passing notes in homeroom, but with more puns and a bigger vocabulary. It’s adorable, in an unabashedly nerdy sort of way. Honestly, the man makes me regress to my so-totally-super-mature-high-school-self on a regular basis.
Today we’re so totally talking about my super cool new Imaginary Boyfriend.
Everyone, meet Cary Joji Fukunaga.
Cary is a 36 year old film and television director who enjoys creating stark, windswept adaptations of romantic Gothic literature starring Michael Fassbender and Mia Wasikowska, and truly haunting slices of Southern America populated by characters with names like Rust Cohle.
* In my notes for today’s post, I indicated this would be my new favourite piece that I’ve written to date. Dr. McDreamy over there called that a “bold proclamation” – obviously, he underestimated how deeply I would be impacted by the, erm, research that was required for this post.
thanks for sharing this amb, and some simply do not appreciate the sacrifices we are willing to make for the sake of our art.
It is my pleasure to share my art with readers as enlightened and understanding as yourself, Beth 😉
PS: Welcome back!
I really like this minimal text concept! You’re an example for us all!
As you will see.
Again and again!
Aww, thanks Diddz. I try to alternate my posts between being amb-ish (ie talking a lot) and being … um … amb-ish (ie swooning a lot). Just trying to give my readers the complete and well rounded amb experience!
Ooh, a real auteur on the BoFN. Lovely choice. I’ve actually not seen the big fancy HBO series or the gothic hauntingness, but I did see his first film Sin Nombre, which is terrific. His name just rolls off the tongue too, doesn’t it? Good stuff!
Why thank you! I thought so, too. 😉
I have to admit that while I hate Jane Eyre on principle (I’m sorry, dude keeps his wife locked away and left for dead in her own attic and is supposed to be some sort of Romantic Ideal?! Really, Charlotte?? REALLY?!?) I do love the gothic hauntingness. Because Fassbender.
I haven’t seen Sin Nombre, but I’ve heard great things. It’s on the list!
Did you ever see the BBC version of Jane Eyre with Timothy Dalton and Zelah Clark? It’s old now, but surprisingly good. They are both perfect for the parts.
I haven’t, but I will love Timothy Dalton forever for playing Mr. Pricklepants* in Toy Story 3, so I should check that out.
* a hedgehog wearing lederhosen, naturally.
Haha, I actually forget writing that note, but I do agree that was a bold proclamation. Still, there’s a good chance you’ve outdone yourself! Way to go, Amb!
*bats eyelashes* Thanks, babe. Tell me more nice things about my minimalist posting motifs in homeroom tomorrow?
Homeroom… those were the days 🙂
He doesn’t look very Japanese in that shot. I thought it was a young Bruce Springsteen with all that Jersey attitude.
According to my, ahem, extensive research, he’s only half Japanese. His mother is Swedish – hence the cheekbones. And I don’t care where the attitude comes from as long as he keeps looking at me like that 😉
Yes, half and half, so I should drink him with my coffee. Once you’re done, of course.
[insert inappropriate comment about how thirsty I am here]
love the coffee reference. Well played, Kerbey.
Oh, yeah. He’s worth the potential risk of living the rest of your life as Mrs. Fuku.
This is what I’m saying.
Thanks for reading, C&C! (Your “What’s Wrong” page cracks me the heck up, by the way 🙂 )
I think he’s looking right at you, amb! And didn’t he just finish saying something like, “Amb, you rock my world and you’re the only one for me. Come here, babe. Now.” ?? That’s what I got from the photo.
Here’s the big Question: Is he knocking anyone off your list or moving another IB down a notch?
gasp! Liz!! You’re right!! That is exactly what he’s saying !!! Oh my, that sounded good in my head. Thanks for that 🙂
That is a big Question indeed. At the moment, my Top 5 spots are full, but there’s a very good chance indeed that Cory has knocked someone else off the bottom of the list 😉
So tell me Amb, if you were to marry Mr Dreamy would you take his surname? This could be a sign of true love
I think you’re right and that would really show the depth of my love and devotion, Marti! Like C&C said above, I think he’s worth it 😉
