Because building a dream from your memory is the easiest way to lose your grasp on what’s real and what is a dream.

Is that what happened to you?

For bauble's Fischer, #1 prompt for the palette meme. Tried to do something different for this, so here’s Robert Fischer hanging around the airport, waiting for his flight to LA… in the (attempted) style of Shag.

This is just to really quickly say thank you again to everyone who joined in the AA Inception rewatch and tinychat tonight. It was an absolute blast and just getting the chance to talk with you all was, not to put too fine a point on it, brilliant. You’re what makes this bit of fandom awesome and I’m really, really glad to know you all. Thank you <3

I know I said it before, but I can’t help be appreciative of all the effort you put in to make this happen, Kore. You’re the best!
And thank you to everyone who participated. It was fun chatting (and fangirling) and watching the movie with all of you. A/A shippers are also the best!

Hello dear followers!

I’m issuing a general invitation to join in on an Inception Rewatch to celebrate Inceptiversary!

We’ll have a tinychat room open this Saturday (July 19, 10pmBST/5pmEDT/2pmPDT).

Don’t be shy and come on by. I have quite a few followers, and…

OK, for everyone who wants to join us in the tinychat  please note that the room is password locked. If you’d like the password please PM me or forever-arthur-ariadne  and one of us will send it to you. See you there! :) 

p.s. tinychat is pretty ad heavy, so if you were thinking of using an ad block extension now might be the time to try one

Yeah, save it for tomorrow! ;)

Don’t worry, sorting out VLC’s recurrent ‘Blu-ray error! This Blu-ray Disc needs a library for AACS decoding, and your system does not have it.
Your input can’t be opened:’ has pretty much done me in for today :)

I understood Windows and that’s about it in the above post. Oh, and popcorn. I don’t know how I’m able to function in this world but somehow I do. Anyway, yes, I figured you’ll have to hand out the password at some point. If anyone is interested in participating in tomorrow’s rewatch please stay tuned for how to get the password. Now, get off my lawn! *waves my cane while I squint through my bifocals*

Yeah, you kids don’t know you’re born! I remember when 128 kbps dialup was fast! We didn’t have any of your SpaceBooks and Jugglrs and whatnot! We made our own entertainment! etc. *dozes off under plaid blanket in armchair* 

Anyway, tech worries aside *sideeyes VLC* what I’m going to do is ask anyone who wants in to drop me (or you?) a quick PM/ask and we’ll send it back via private post or an ask in return. I know it sounds worryingly cautious, but I’m not a fan of splatting trolls with the ban hammer. I’d like everyone to have a good time and this seems like the best way to make it a safe space.

@eustaciavye28 said: I blame Windows, mostly because I loathe how 8 looks and operates. Ick. I could prolly use a new laptop or desktop, but I refuse to get anything until there’s an OS that doesn’t suck balls or I absolutely can’t function with the netbook anymore.

In this case it’s a mash up of problems 1)Win8 is supposed to come with the blu-ray AASC codes bundled as part of Media Centre- except it actually doesn’t. So you think “Cool, my media player of choice will need no tweaking for me to watch Leo in such high definition I can count the pores on his nose!” and 2) VLC doesn’t come with blu-ray playing capability built in to it’s long term stability version. You can tweak it so it works, but as last night proved if you’re in the intermediate IT class it’s bloody convoluted and just a little nerve wracking. 

Win8 is alright btw, but I hate the Metro mode and the fact so many admin functions are now hidden sucks arse. But I was on XP before, so I really had the choice of 7 or 8, which is kind of like choosing between a punch in the mouth or a punch in the eye. Ubuntu’s alright too- have you tried it? (linux scripting time! Woohoo!) I run it on my netbook because it’s nice and light, and aside from an annoying cryptswap drive mounting error which took 1/2 a day to fix, it’s pretty hassle free (aside from when it freezes up.)

For those of you who want to join the chat, please pm me or kore-r for the link and password. I’ll be away for a couple of hours or so but I will definitely respond before the start time. So looking forward to this!

Rare “Inception” still
Hi-res: [x]

OOH. ALL THE PEOPLE ARE IN SETS OF TWOS BECAUSE THAT’S HOW ARTHUR’S CATEGORIZED MIND WORKS, EXCEPT FOR THE TWO PEOPLE WHO ARE ALONE ON THE STAIRS, BECAUSE ONE OF THEM IS STUCK IN A CLEVER PENROSE TRAP AND CAN’T GET BACK TO HER PAIRED PROJECTION, WHO’S PROLLY JUST WANDERING AROUND LIKE WHERE’D YOU GO, CLAIRE :(

I think the clue to the apparently unpaired projections is in the background: the woman descending is paired with a man ascending the staircase behind them (after Escher’s Ascending and Descending, which is the other source for this illusion.) The binary opposition of her moving down is cancelled by him moving up, putting those forces in balance if you like. The second is in the meeting room on the right, where three people (not four) are seated, watching the stairs. The female projection is almost on their level which if you follow the idea through suggests that she is placed to balance them into a four, reflecting on the team dynamic as Arthur knew it at the time (that is Cobb, himself, Ariadne and Eames, bearing in mind that Yusuf comes in at Eames’ suggestion and Saito at his own insistence.)
The pairing/twinning idea is part of the wider story, where forces act in opposition to each other; Cobb vs. Mal, Robert vs. Maurice; the team vs. Robert’s psyche; then in lesser degrees Ariadne vs. Cobb (action in the present versus dwelling in the past); Saito vs. Robert (competition versus monopoly); Ariadne vs. Mal (real, actual versus projected construct) ; Arthur vs. Eames (practical thinking versus imaginative thinking); and Arthur vs. Ariadne (experience versus inexperience. I would also say professional versus personal, because on the surface they are colleagues and he’s teaching her, but underneath there is a more basic tension of male vs. female, of physical/emotional attraction pulling against a more neutral, working relationship that’s based in a metaphysical environment. But of course, I would say that, right? :D) 
Thereare some characters that are harder to pair- Yusuf in particular. Initially I thought he paired with Saito (apparently legal business versus illegal business), but while there is that opposition it’s not really called upon. Yusuf more opposes Cobb (the addict versus the supplier, if you like. Yusuf makes Somnacin but rarely if ever seems to use it himself, while Cobb cannot stop using it. He also apparently understands Cobb’s symptoms in the dreaming den.) There’s also a Yusuf vs. Eames opposition, not dissimilar to Arthur vs. Eames, in that it is a scientific mode of thought versus a more creative one, but there are also less comfortable overtones of colonialism mixed in (the British Empire versus the Modern Africa.) It comes out in Eames’ teasing Yusuf about the rain: after all, surely such a practical mind would know that needing to pee would make it piss with rain? Ho ho ho, not so clever now matey boy! Eames in fact is almost always light hearted when he interacts with the rest of the team characters, being fraternal, playful and teasing by varying degrees; which is another opposition to Cobb’s mode of interacting with them (secretive, didactic, rigid.)
