Frankenstein [Oct. 30th, 2005|09:22 am]

[music |secret stars - 'wait']

saturday was a blast.

i went over to the most awesome jenny-jenny's for her annual Halloweem Par-tay and i am ashamed to say i had the stupidest, weakest costume (damn you 30% off costume-hats and fuzzy leis from Beverly's!).  Jen fooled us all with her Muffy the Werewolf Huntress get-up.  BWOK!

after the party, we hurried over to the Canyon Theatre Guild (i of course didn't get the memo about calling my mum at six-thirty, making everyone late, i'm so sorry!) for some good old-fashioned theatre. 



the cast was amazing, as they always are.  it was an exhilarating performance; definitely one i'll never forget.  no matter how small the role, as each character died off, one by one, i felt a piece of my heart break--i felt that close to them all.

oooh, and were those death-scenes ever sweet!  CHOKE-POW-SIZZLE!

yeah, it rocked

you say cold, i say evil plot by ninjas [Oct. 20th, 2005|06:43 pm]
[mood |sickattacked by ninjas/sick]

little did i know, but last friday would be my final day among the living


the next day, a little sore throat had mutated into a burning of my esophagus and later, the worst case of the shivers known to man--it was true, either i was sick or someone couldn't stop think of me nekkid.*

since monday, i have really felt it, and had to stay home from school until wednesday.  unfortunately i have gotten little rest because my teachers have unanimously decided that the week i am sick, they would unleash their harshest assignments and tests.

so that's the hell i've been living with up to now.  when it first hit, i couldn't believe my doctor labeled it a cold--a cold, a mild strain of some virus unleashed  by vengeful ninjas perhaps, but certainly not a cold?!


*note-it is believed that when you "shiver" or a "shiver runs up your spine" this is, in fact, someone thinking of you butt-naked.  cold?

What do *you* want to be when you grow up little girl? [Oct. 12th, 2005|10:11 pm]

Yeah, the normal answers are "fireman...teacher...ninja..." but obviously what's the point of serious soul-searching when a test can do it for you?

well, the test lady didn't say that exactly, but you know she was thinking that when she told us about our CAREER RELEVANCE APPTITUDE PARTICIPATION test.  you see, the CAREER RELEVANCE APPTITUDE PARTICIPATION test, or C.R.A.P.t., for short, employs questions certified by official C.R.A.P.t. organizers to find us ideal jobs in the REAL WORLD.

i mean, with questions like "Would you work in a fish hatchery," or "Do you like to fix cabinet doors?" or the classic "How would you enjoy putting out forest fires?" paired with only three answers ('YES!', 'No', and 'Maybe') how can one go wrong? 

who cares if these questions are not only uncreative, but totally alien to the average highskool student?  what kid taking the test didn't answer 'YES!' to working in fish hatcheries?

who cares if the results were generally the same among all students?

who cares if the CAREER RELEVANCE APPTITUDE PARTICIPATION test created a cold equation of our likes and dislikes without taking into consideration our hopes, dreams, aspirations, social beings, or any other trifle details?

there's nothing wrong with half the class ending up with "dance" and "clergy" as ideal careers--hey, there's a market right there for stripping nuns!

...oh well, my results were art historian, psychologist, and model--C.R.A.P.t. can't be that off.

i can't believe i haven't posted anything since the last episode of niptuck (which was good!) just heard a song off of death cab's new album Plans called 'What Sarah Said.'

What Sarah SaidCollapse )

one of the most beautiful songs i have ever heard. 

you know you have skillz when you can write a song that includes the phrase "as i stared at my shoes in the ICU / that reeked of piss and 409" and still end up with a masterpiece.

Butt Rape and Couches and Threesomes oh my! [Sep. 20th, 2005|11:32 pm]
[mood |surprisedsurprised]
[music |Michael - Franz Ferdinand]

! Two chicks from my school, Meghan and Jeanine, have introduced me to NipTuck, Fox's version of a 70's porno, just dirtier and raunchier.  before i get to that, let me just say...


R E N T is coming to the movies!  Rent is easily my favourite musical, following a year in the life of friends trying to make it by in New York.  Go out and buy the album.  Now.

The movie looks kick ass on every level--it kept getting set back due to budget restraints, but from the previews it seems Chris Columbus stayed pretty true to the story line and didn't lose much of the flare found in the musical.   

Memoirs of a Geisha and Oliver Twist are also in line for the movie theatre.  Mmmmm.  (Roman Polanski directs Oliver Twist!)

Back to NipTuck--have you seen it yet?  no?  bad dog! 

NT is strangely addicting--the stories of Californian plastic surgeons and their raunchy sex lives--let me put it this way, the first episode of season three aired to-night, and about fifteen minutes in we see a butt rape scene; no, not just the setup and then a quick skip to the next day, NO!  the audience gets to see total butt action (Julian McMahon has a bleached ass!) and ze grinding.

Death Cab's new album has been out for a few weeks now, but only to-day did i hear the video-single 'Soul Meets Body.'

When i first listened, i wasn't sure i liked it too much, for a single i thought it was too much of a ballad and closer to Postal Service's work than earlier DCfC works.  By the end of the song though, i admit, i'm hooked--it's an enchanting piece and lyrics like "But if the silence takes you
Then I hope it takes me too."

The video was beautiful though, lovely and yet, a bit unsettling at the same time.  Jon Watts executed the birth, life, and death of the music perfectly; it tied in amazingly well with the overall theme of the song and left a haunting impression on the viewer.

i also saw Of Montreal's new video, Wraith Pinned to the Mist and Other Games, and Gorillaz' DareBoth are excellent.  Funny thing is, neither will ever find their way to mainstream MTV countdowns.  go figure.
