Wait a memento...

It totally copied me after I copied it.

Have you ever seen Memento? I just started watching it in Contemporary Media, it's a movie about a guy who... well something about his memory... but yeah, the movie pretty much plays backwards. It starts with the end and slowly reveals the story in the opposite direction.

And that's exactly what I was going to do.

I was gonna write a story that started with the end, and then work my way backwards! It was gonna be a blog! SEE! I EVEN STARTED!:

I started in October... and then stopped cuz I had no idea how to approach this thing. I got the idea from the fact that as you post entries on a blog, it stacks up chronologically even though you write it inverse-chronologically... But now that I saw that Memento did this story setup first... I DUNNO! I no longer feel clever and or creative, even though I had no idea that my idea and the movie were similar!

Now I gotta think of something else that's as cool. THANKS A LOT, GOOD MOVIE!

Ooh, I wanna see Memento now!
But Kevin is still quite the clever one. So creative! I would have read your backwards story!

Memento was amazing the first time I watched it.
Second time is not as fun. Haha.
