美好莫过始终 | Accountability

2019-03-30 作者:

辉煌无非转瞬,美好莫过始终。

最近不少人谈论热门家庭剧集,剧情如何纠结而拖沓,到临了却秒变团圆;殊不知如若结局破碎,发人深省,又如何带起最后一波街巷辣评,让一众大妈摩拳擦掌声称要改写终章呢?

纵观荧幕,大多非小众故事,结尾常见三种:

  • happy ending合家欢,常见于家庭剧。如离婚律师、乡村爱情、唐顿庄园等。
  • 悲剧,常见于所谓史诗剧以及各种大制作,虽悲但一定要孕育希望。如角斗士、勇敢的心等。
  • 悬念留存。常见于科幻、魔幻大作。如各种alien以及witch/vampire类故事。

略跑题,话说The Walking Dead Game系列终于宣告完结。众多评论说,本以为Clem铁定走了Lee的老路而说服自己准备接受type II ending,奈何终结篇主角光环加成,一句“what you doing there, goofball?” 让吃瓜群众瞬间泪崩。

无喜无悲,心如止水,我看的多少有点跳戏;甚至完结后反而有种如释重负的感觉——毕竟4个season花了7年,一辈子有几个7年呢?其实年前在听到Telltale破产而震惊之余,我依稀觉得或许就那样结束(停在S4E2)并不算糟。

而如今的happy ending,窃以为happy不在剧情。2012年Telltale黄袍加身无非过眼烟云,“眼见他起高楼,眼见他宴宾客,眼见他楼塌了”,正所谓故事总是惊人的相似。在7年之后,Skybound接手后还能给老玩家一个体面的完结,仅此一点,称得上美好。至于剧情中Clem为啥截个肢就继续微笑,Lee就得吃花生米,作为一个工作中靠逻辑吃饭的人,欣赏个剧情并不想纠结。

南都秋意 | Serene Autumn

2018-11-29 作者:

Photos at Zhan Garden, literally “Garden of Forward Watching”, a Chinese garden located at Nanjing, China.

片子摄于南京瞻园,号称金陵第一园。

本意是去观赏一下所谓传统园林景观,而过程中发现:

其一,这种小家碧玉型的园林景观不是我的菜,可能江南山水理应如此吧,举步成诗举目入画的感觉。但我更喜欢凭栏远眺,进一步说,还是波澜壮阔的视野来的更爽。说不出理由,这种小园林潜意识里感觉make me soft ‘n weak吧。

其二,毕竟已是深秋,郁郁葱葱的感觉正在逐渐褪去,再拍园林总发现色彩不能让人满意。或许还是应该拍一些,哪怕转个黑白,凑一幅小山水也是好的;但想来很可能再去,便安下心告诉自己不急于一时。后边又转了太平天国历史博物馆,时间关系,没有去一一仔细的观看那些陈设、武器、衣物、书函、公文,可见再来是一定的了。

西南小城 | Cosy Nest

2018-11-24 作者:

8点半的太阳,初升。居于此地,晚起似乎永远有充足借口。

长江支流,缓缓而过,晨雾搅扰视线,仿佛在耳边重复那句,古人言,难得糊涂。

而南方城镇的楼顶,极少bald hill,举凡有人关照,大多郁郁葱葱。总在不经意时看到,便可提醒自己,匆忙之余,稍可精致,有别于北方的粗犷。这一点,由表及里,南北对照,事事处处人人,皆有比对。不以好坏论之,各有长短而已。正如电影对白:“小孩子才分对错,成年人只看利弊”。踏出校门十载有余,方得领悟一二,可叹理工男之鲁钝。

6年光阴道珍重 | Farewell, Telltale

2018-09-28 作者:

Waiting for the final season soooooo long time, and it exactly show the original story telling skills of Telltale.

After the video walkthrough, the author commented that Telltale had went bankrupt and this season might not be accomplished this year, or worse… maybe something like… never.

A total disaster… ehh… not easy to accept that, been following this storyline from 2012 to 2018, especially with the recent E3 videos.

If there could be some way to donate a little (I suppose it was too late to buy the game), I guess I could put like fifty or maybe hundred bucks to prove that I really got a lot from this story series.
To me, personally, the best was season #1, then #2 and #4, the #3… nothing left in mind but that was ok anyway, good, still.

My favorite “no-comment” video author, Hassan, chose to let Clem kiss Louis – that’s not typical him, I mean not his style on choice.

But after I saw his comment – I realize this episode might be the last one.

At the end of this ep, Louis was caught and took away with intruders, which means we probably never know any of the possibilities between Clem and him – that would be the reason why Hassan, the video author, choose the kiss, instead of hiding the feeling to each other during this apocalypse.

Wrecking the gorgeous right in the face, that’s called TRAGEDY.

悲剧就是把美撕碎了给人看。

大族广场 | Hans Plaza

2018-09-16 作者:

There was a very nice photo exhibition this summer, at Hans Plaza, the landmark of BDA, Beijing.

2018 CIPAF, a.k.a China International Photographic Art Festival.

The most gorgeous series was that called “THE EARTH FROM ABOVE” by Yann Arthus-Bertrand (France). I’d rather use the word “shocking” to describe how I feel about those beautiful pics from aerial view (maybe by a drone?).

Should think about walking more, thinking more, and taking more (photos).

湖南风光 | Landscape of Hunan

2018-06-01 作者:

第一次到湖南。

整体感觉,潮湿,水气足,水系发达;空气干净,少尘;植被茂密,处处绿色浓郁;小城镇节奏慢,充满生活气息;物产不能说丰富,吃的还是不错,当然口味上相比其他省份是不太容易吃的惯(比之河南、湖北、山东、江苏等);

哦,还有一点不得不提,即使开车聚精会神如我,在长沙驾车依然12倍小心,当地群众彪悍的螃蟹驾驶技术,叫人捏一把汗。

桃花江竹海 – 竹林

The Hobbiton – 竹鼠の家

张家界黄龙洞 – 镇洞之宝“定海神针”

黄龙洞,指环王中Shelob(尸罗蜘蛛)呆那地儿吧这是……

好吧,最近读了石黑一雄的《被掩埋的巨人》,内容很好,翻译渣渣。微信读书增加了读后感社交功能(给人一种看书带弹幕的赶脚),其中有人提到,为啥龙是这么邪恶的生物,为啥要亵渎神龙。然后一堆西方魔幻题材爱好者,给这位LZ科普文化差异。

所以,黄龙洞其名,是有神龙隐于此。而我拍这张片子,转黑白后第一感觉就是Mordor魔窟,sigh~东西方神魔差异,也是醉了。

张家界,袁家界风光,天下第一桥景观

张家界,金鞭溪,宝他爷爷说,这是产妖怪的地方,来个乌云就从山后飘出来了

金鞭溪之二,可以印老挂历了

超级大桂树
