THE PRINCESS AND THE FROG

spoilers )

I NEED TO SHUT UP SINCE I DON'T REALLY HAVE ANYTHING IMPORTANT TO SAY ABOUT IT HAHAHA
I LIKED IT
i need to watch 2D movies more often because i always get a serious art boner every time IT'S GOOD FOR ME

oh yeah mom lost the key for the PO box. SIGHHHHH. i can still use the address to send cards, but i dunno whether or not i can get anything in return. we'll see.

the ♥ fanart love ♥ meme


i don't like doing memes that don't allow people to say something bad about me, too (i guess just leave constructive crit stuff here or something), but i am always in need of some good art motivation, so... i also figure it's a good time to get it since i'm trying to do christmas sketches hahaha

fantastic mr. fox is really great, and i have been very diligently avoiding the word "fantastic" to describe any part of it. it was awkward trying to get used to how it was paced and acted, but aside from that, no complaints. the art style was definitely the best part; i never got tired of looking at it. i really wish i could find the montage that introduces boggis, bunce, and bean for the first time, since something about the visuals there really stood out as being totally amazing BUT I CAN'T FIND IT ANYWHERE it's driving me nuts

i went to an osteopath the other day. mom had me go since she thought it'd help a bunch of stuff, and i really did feel better afterwards (and then ridiculously tired so i went and fell asleep for over two hours when i got home). apparently my skeleton was pretty weird; my hips were turned and i think part of my spine was too, and there was something about the left side of my body being kind of locked up, and my jaw was pretty weird. i'm also hyper-sensitive to touch so every touch (mainly on my back) had this ADFLKGJADLG reaction, which isn't normal. i also have flat feet. wtf.
so yeah, i have to go get arch supports in my shoes and get tested for allergies and then i'm gonna go back. hopefully i will ACTUALLY HAVE ENERGY AGAIN once i'm all done.

oh yeah and i still need addresses from [livejournal.com profile] waywardoctagon and [livejournal.com profile] ameliorer. and uhh who all wanted to send me cards again, i could use a list. i can't get a PO box until friday, but i can sure make a list. ALSO to everyone who asked if i wanted a gift JUST SURPRISE ME since i never know what to ask for haha plus i tend to feel weird makin' people do stuff

i hate sore knees
backupdump002: (DURR)
hahaha whoops was i supposed to do an art post
weeell, the only art-related thing i've done since the last post (aside from [livejournal.com profile] tigerboat and i pchatting WHICH I LOST A BIG CHUNK OF FFFF) is fixing up that pic of gumshoe and edgeworth. the dumb part is that i keep FEELING like drawing and i have plenty of ideas, but i just don't want to put in the effort. someone kick my ass seriously

SO, i met [livejournal.com profile] wishwashing and her boyfriend a couple of days ago and saw zombieland, which is really really awesome. it was kinda like shaun of the dead, only in america and with less depressing scenes. I COMPLETELY RECOMMEND IT. tallahassee is seriously the greatest character ever.

this is completely unrelated, but y'know what i hate
i hate how the ~*sexy*~ look is to just either stare blankly at the camera or look all moody and serious or whatever. just, am i the only person who thinks people are 100x more attractive when they're happy and comfortable and don't look like they want to hurt me somehow

OH OH OH BEFORE I FORGET i've been meaning to do a link post for ages, but i have so many links and i'm lazy, so i just threw a bunch of stuff all over delicious. SO, JUST GO CRAZY, I GUESS. i haven't even really gone through most of these.
also, sorry for all the copious amounts of science stuff in the edumacational tag I WAS REALLY INTERESTED IN THAT WHEN I WAS YOUNGER.
now i can finally check "link post" off my "posts i need to make" list. someday, i might even check off "sanitarium."

NOW TELL ME WHAT CHARACTER I AM OR I'LL FEEL ALL LAME
the I AM meme

UP

ADKFLGH spoilers )

tl;dr everybody needs to see Up right now. I think it's their best. Just prepare for how unbearably sad it is at points; it has a darker tone to it compared to other Pixar movies, which I really wasn't expecting, despite all the people saying that they pretty much sobbed the whole time. It really does cut deep. (But it's very sweet and funny, too.)

In other news, I'm going out of town for three days, so... yes. I still need to pack, hahaha

SURPRISE SKETCH MEME
FIRST FIVE PEOPLE TO REQUEST A SKETCH GET ONE (MAY DO MORE LATER IF I FEEL LIKE IT)
KEEP IT CLEAN, MAN
EDIT: GIMME FIVE MORE I'M FEELIN' HOT

Another thing that sucks: when you're too awake to sleep and too exhausted to get out of bed so you just lie there tossing and turning for hours until you eventually start to feel hungry, but you can't go downstairs because your dad's asleep on the couch and he'll be annoyed if you wake him up, so you have no choice but to wait a few more hours until he gets up and goes to work, and by that point you're right back to square one because you realize that those hours would go by much quicker if you could just get to sleep.
... and then by the time you do get to sleep and wake up, it's freaking five

At least I didn't have anything to do that day :V I watched Ghostbusters. Speaking of which, what the hell, every fictional thing I've been pursuing lately has left me in tears. SERIOUSLY, I watched Bagdad Cafe the other night and oh man, that was such a bizarre movie but at the same time it was so touching :< Same with Paris, Texas. Man, that completely tore me up. And MOTHER-FREAKING-3, which I still need to get around to finishing (I think I'm still on Chapter 3), but god that game is a hundred times more depressing in English. I get the feeling the ending and Tanehineri are going to break my heart so hard

Man, though, what's with me? I used to be real macho about this sort of thing and go around proudly stating that nothing fictional has ever made me cry, and now I'm weeping openly at the thought of a middle-aged German woman doing magic tricks for people at a cafe/hotel/tattoo parlor/wtf. It seems like ever since I cried at the ending to MGS4 I've been more susceptible to that sort of thing. Though I did watch Grave of the Fireflies which everyone said made them sob, and I just got a little teary and that was it. I GUESS THERE'S THAT?

I dunno, man. It's all too much for me ;_;

Dude, Again: Eye of Providence looks like it's gonna be awesooooome. I am so excited for that. Why does Cing make the best games, I swear to god

I'm helping repaint the old house out of the kindness of my heart for money, and now I'm trying to decide what game(s?) I should get. I'm thinking No More Heroes? Or maybe Psychonauts, if I can find it. Hmmmm

why am i slacking so much on sanitarium jesus christ

OH MAN YOU GUYS
YOU GUYS
I JUST SAW PINEAPPLE EXPRESS AND IT WAS SERIOUSLY AWESOME I'M STILL ALL GIDDY FROM HOW AWESOME IT WAS OH MAN
I've been psyched for this movie since the trailers, and it didn't disappoint me at all. It starts out a little slow, what with the dumb military thing and Dale derping around with his girlfriend and smoking joints and whatnot, but as soon as James Franco's character (Saul) is introduced and the movie starts to catch its stride, there isn't a single dull moment until the end. I thought the characters and the writing were definitely the best parts--very "real," all the dialogue felt completely natural--and the plot was fairly simple, but it worked perfectly. I felt very involved the whole time I was watching. Not to mention the whole movie was funny as hell.

In a weird way, it sort of reminded me of Shaun of the Dead, just in that the main characters are these two deadbeat guys thrown in a desperate situation that they have to fight their way out of and they have all sorts of crazy adventures and bromance along the way (and the humor is kind of similar). If you guys like Shaun of the Dead then you'll like Pineapple Express, I think 8D GO SEE IT IT'S FUN

Just while I'm reviewing things, I beat Trace Memory... actually a couple of hours after I posted my "lol i'm home" entry. :B whoop this came out long. no spoilers )

This thread is freaking awesome and I have to share it. So many amazing, obscure games up for grabs, and the download links are still active. I'VE BEEN DOWNLOADING THE THINGS IN THIS THREAD FOR THE PAST TWO DAYS I CAN'T WAIT TO PLAY EVERYTHING OH MAN

Finally downloaded Trillian, which has been a vast improvement so far 8D I haven't fully tried it out, though. Maybe I should bug someone

Ramsey and Pablo are pure comedy gold

MAN FFIV DS WAS RELEASED WITHOUT ME EVEN REALIZING IT and i would be all over it if my birthday weren't in a few weeks. agh waiting

WHY CAN I NEVER STOP TALKING
backupdump002: (Default)
So when I said I'd "try and get as many things done" I meant "play Baka RO with Wish," by the way. But darnit, it's just so fun.

Went and saw Cars, tonight. It was stupid, though I think that a lot of that was because of the theatre and audience. I could handle the outside of the theatre smelling like sour milk, hearing retching while waiting in the ticket line, having to wait in the snack line between a soccer mom with her screaming kid and a fat lady with a strange odor (and then having the people running the snack bar take a million years for each order), and having to sit in a crowded theatre behind a guy who did not stop crunching on nachos the entire film. I can deal with that, no problem.

But goddamnit, when I have to sit next to these two retard girls who keep belting out these ear-piercing donkey laughs every time someone makes a joke, then that's where I draw the line. They talked the whole time and kept playing with their cellphones as well, which was annoying, but I could deal with it. But every time they started laughing it was SO LOUD and SO OBNOXIOUS that it would make me jump.

It was all
AH HUH HUH HUH HUH HUH HUH
And there was just NO EXCUSE FOR IT

That, and they would go "awww" everytime someone was sad which was equally annoying. And then everytime there was a line they thought was funny, they felt the need to repeat it.

And the theater smelled like farts.

As for the movie itself... the animation was amazing, but the plot was boring. I dunno, just wasn't too into it. Too feel-good for my tastes, and all the characters made me vaguely annoyed. Especially Larry the Cable Guy. I hate Larry, I hate the blue comedy thing and I hate how he managed to wedge his "Git'R'Done" catchphrase into the movie.

And damnit, we didn't need to repeat the cow tractor whatever joke fifty million times okay. It wasn't even that funny the first time.

Also what the hell, why do I keep going through these random, low self-esteem trips? I'll be completely angry with myself one minute, then the next I'm fine. Blargh, emotions.
