Making Stuff

Make It Monday

A lot of literal earrings for a batch of movies we really enjoyed.

From the movie The Man Who Fell to Earth

I didn’t care for Mary-Lou’s character–which is why these earrings are for Thomas Jerome. I did have to put her best line on the screens…the quintessential quote for all maddening, neurotic love.

From the movie Do the Right Thing

Ice cubes and a slice for Tina…what else? #specialdelivery

From the movie Bull Durham

Annie was stuck between two envious and entirely different bats.

From the movie Fargo

Good old Marge! Prowler needs a jump.

From the movie Bubble

I can’t say much about this pair without giving away the plot–but I love how they turned out (thanks, Jim!).

Cherry was a bit surface-y, so here are a few of her accessories.

From the movie Wendy and Lucy

Wendy, in her royal blue hoodie stealing cans of dog food and jumping train cars. Blue symbolizes loyalty, strength, wisdom, and trust; yellow means neither stop nor go but some kind of limbo here, and maybe optimism, too.

From the movie Me and Earl and the Dying Girl

Rachel, rich with quirks and talents waiting to be discovered by anyone willing to go exploring.

Quote of Interest:

“So, that was Mrs. Lundegaard on the floor in there. And I guess that was your accomplice in the wood chipper. And those three people in Brainerd. And for what? For a little bit of money? There’s more to life than a little money, you know. Don’tcha know that? And here ya are, and it’s a beautiful day. Well. I just don’t understand it.”

Three words to describe this film/state: Cold-blooded fools

Best ‘Extras’:

  • Victim in Field, played by Ƭ̵̬̊
  • Bark Beetle Narrator, voiced by Don Wescott

State food/recipe to try: Lefse / Strawberry-Rhubarb pie / Chippers / Chokecherry wine / Juneberry jam

Earring Inspo Character: Marge Gunderson

Other Notes: A highly entertaining classic worth re-watching, especially for its portrayal of male characters. Good juxtapositions of stark white/blood red, law/crime, brains/lack thereof, women/men. This film would probably make a great radio show based on its dialogue and regional accents alone.
