About Me

My photo
I am an artist, a wife, a mother, a friend, a deviant and a special education teacher. I say artist first because I cease to be sane if i don't work on my art, seriously, I have to go into therapy... My work is an evolution of my experiences and philosophy. It spans multiple mediums and subjects, most recently focusing on the balance of expression and form. I spend a lot of time on chaos theory and macro/micro theory. The theory of balance and entropy in the universe fuels my inspiration. I love movies and philosophy, sometimes spiraling into deep conversations about both. These are my musings and thoughts, as well as insight into my artistic process and my work View more at: GoldenSpiralDesigns.deviantart.com redbubble.com/people/caitlinpadilla

so, summer blockbusters aye? well what we have is a whole lot of sequels. what is up? for the past oh, say five years mainstream american movies have been in a dry spell...(well technically it has been a lot longer than five years, but eh) so far we have terminator, batman, transformers, night at the museum, indiana jones, ice age, x-men, star trek...not to mention the remakes like fun with dick and jane, mr and mrs smith, effing land of the lost!!! good grief!! i mean every so oftern there is a glimmer of light and we have something new, but that quickly becomes the next new thing and is used and abused until we cant stand it anymore! i know for a fact that there are still amazing, brilliant ideas out there, but the general public has such a marginalized idea of what entertainment is that they will gobble up regurgitated crap for eons! we will also shell out handfulls of money to see the same movie (mall cop, observe and report) or a trend in movies...vampires anyone?? how about teen pregnancy?
