My Blog__ I love her
I remember I was on a date, he said we'd go see one for me, "its Miranda July's new movie". I don't think I knew the name, I don't know if I lied. I remember trying to find the theatre, I remember not wanting to leave when it was over.Walking away he said "See, that was cute, I don't know why everyone is beating up on her for making a good movie". He was referring to the same people who hate on their favorite record as soon as the bands sold enough records to quit their day jobs. I understood who he was talking about but I couldn't relate. I was in love. How could anyone feel anything other than admiration and inspiration for this awkward and intense talent that was and is Miranda July?
Then came the book, a blonde redhead video, more short films and art installations. Miranda has not ever ceased to encourage and motivate me as a women but also as a driven individual.
