Movies and such

I just watched Natasha Richardson’s first film GOTHIC. I adore the dvr because I have channels like FearNET on demand. My all time favorite movie channel! This film is really poorly acted (all besides Richardson) was a bit cheesy. But she really did glow in the film – even when she was in the background she was stunning. Some parts of the film are so still the characters reflect a vintage oil paintings. The poster even showcases this style by copying The Nightmare by Johann Heinrich Füssli. Look here, can you see the similarities. This scene is acted out just like the poster dictates.

So strange, I remember my art history class when we talked about transferring text into art and even the symbolism of the sexual demon – the incubus. The film is supposed to be about how Mary Shelley came up with the idea of Frankenstein and Polidori’s The Vampyre. Film also foreshadows the death of Shelley’s first 2 children, the drowning of her husband and Polidori’s suicide. The movie had some orgy-like scenes which surprised me, some homo-erotic parts and lots of eerie masks, the music was so 80’s but for some reason I really liked it. Its a campy flick but overall I am glad to have finally watched it!! LOL I think they were all fucked up on drugs (some potion they drank), because they all imagined the weirdest things.

I’m sad United States of Tara is over. It was such a short season! OH and Being Erica, its really inspirational to see another person go through the hum drums of annoying office life. You guys should watch these!

Things To Do:

  • This weekend is the Japanese festival! I have plans with family to attend.
  • Adam Pascal and Anthony Rapp will be coming to Houston for a special showing of RENT. Hell yeah I want to meet them!
  • Get tickets to Phantom of the Opera
  • Finalize website I am doing for freelance
  • Meet again with event client for my other freelance job
  • Catch up with normal work projects
  • Make a fucking new layout for MM!

I have no time for personal projects – kinda makes me stressed to even get online. Only reason I do is to update Shattered-Tranquility. Although I haven’t been in a real chatty mood. Just too tired ;-;
Oh to get updates on my blog subscribe!


 

Stressed!

Work has been weird and tiring. Seems like no matter what I do around the office I would get weird vibes off of my boss and coworkers. I think this week was a bit more normal I guess, I have Monday off so yeah. But I picked up 2 new freelance jobs. Actually one of the jobs is like going to be a huge event so its alot of pressure lol. I’m nervous.

Addy went back to Japan so the staff and myself have to pick up the slack at Shattered-Tranquility. We actually get about 7- 8 posts per day so I think we are doing pretty well! I want to redesign my sites ;-;!! But they have to be put on the back burner for a bit, which sucks because my layout out on MM has been up forever!!! I want a new lay ‘-‘!!!!
Have you heard about my bunny story? I made my first youtube vlog thing about it over here. Its totally not going to be a common thing to do videos O_o; Here is the bunny – I almost stepped on him.

My dad also got to hang out with a donkey on Thursday! I decided I really wanted to have a donkey – they are so cute!

Did you hear about Shamwow dude getting in trouble for beating a hooker? So fucking weird! GOD David Bowie has the hottest mug shot ever!! He is like 62-63? I don’t care I would still do him!!

Oh on a movie note – I saw Haunting in Connecticut. It wasn’t sooo bad until the ending -___-; I don’t like when “scary” movies try to be inspirational and cheesy in the end. Not sure why Matt got his brother and cousin out while the youngest cousin went upstairs and no one made sure she was safe? -___- I hate badly edits in films. The next shot you see her outside but you never see her being pushed to safety. Sorry kinda ruins the movie when I notice things like that. Oh I never saw the tv show about this story. Does anyone have any stories to share? Do you believe in ghosts? 😮 *curious*

Oh and lent is over with so guess what?
