Synopsis: The story charts the extraordinary relationship of Emma and Dexter, who meet on the night of their college graduation -- July 15, 1988. She is a working-class girl of principle and ambition who dreams of making the world a better place. He is a wealthy charmer who dreams that the world will be his playground. For the next two decades, every July 15 reveals to us how "Em" and "Dex" are faring, as their friendship ebbs and flows with the passing of the years. Through love and loss, heartbreak and success, hopes fulfilled and dreams shattered, they experience the grandeur of life. Somewhere along their journey, these two people realize that what they are searching and hoping for has been there for them all along.

Jim Sturgess is interviewed prior to the release of Peter Weir's THE WAY BACK in Poland. Jim talks about recreating the horror of Soviet labor camps and acting within the treacherous conditions of freezing cold and blistering heat. The film traces the story of a Polish officer, falsely imprisoned in a Siberian labor camp, who escapes along with 6 other prisoners. Brought to you by Jim Sturgess Online.

Playing with curious hair - fabulous heads

"I think, given what we know now about Wallace's depression, this story is grappling with whether or not happiness exists, and if so, if it is possible for happiness to exist without killing it -- consider, for instance, that the object/title of this story -- the happiness/obsession -- is the girl with curious hair, and that the story ends with Mr. Wonderful and Gimlet chasing the father/molester of the girl (who is sleeping his his arms) with a knife or pair of scissors, intent on separating the hair from the girl.

Hence Cheese desperately questioning Sick Puppy about the source of his apparent happiness, and the revelation we get in that his happiness exists only so long as he remains fully in the present, dissociated from his memories and, to some extent, dissociated from himself (drugs: though he claims they do not alter his consciousness, he is a bit unreliable). Here, his happiness begins to fade almost as soon as he becomes cognizant of it, just as Gimlet's enjoyment becomes something entirely other as she continues to fixate on, and obtaining, it".

when I suffer from insomnia, I look for some David Foster Wallace's books, specially "Infinite Jest" is a mildly effective cure method.
