Cut for Cool Interactive Thingy )

When life gets you down, repeat the following:

My life does not suck.
My life does NOT suck.
Things could be so, so, so much worse than they are. Therefore I am thankful for what I have.

(makes me feel better, anyway)

Also, as of today I have a ticket to see "Lord of the Rings" at the Theatre Royal this July. I'm sitting in the sixth row, OMG. Jubilation!

Um. Hey.

Look what's going to be playing CLOSE ENOUGH FOR ME TO TAKE A BUS this summer.

(yes, I'd heard of it before, I'd just only now been reminded of its existence and subsequent opening)
(yes, I know it got mixed reviews in Canada. I DON'T F'IN CARE.)

I've been staring at the computer screen for the last five minutes, unable to say anything except "Oh my GOD" and "Holy SHIT."

Trilogy Day Take 2 was a success. Meg, Christine, Christina, Kate & Alex, Cory, Abe, David and a new gal named Sarah were all there. And like last time, I kept a thorough log.

Behold the Insanity )

Also, Christina thinks Nazgul look cool, but Rosie Cotton is scary. Whatever floats your boat.

Congrats on another successful T-Day, guys!

Just so y'all who are in the community know, my post's been put up at [livejournal.com profile] chartype_rate.

EDIT: Ohmygod. [livejournal.com profile] pottersues has just posted the most horrific fic I've evar seen, evar. It's so terrible it's hilarious. In a really, really soul-hurty way. You've been warned.

like summer light before it turns to nighttime

so let the North Winds blow... )

The snow had me feelin' all hobbity with LotR-ness, and it's not even Decemeber :P So now I'm watching RotK.

Stolen from everywhere.

Name a fandom you know I know and I'll tell you:
1. The character I first fell in love with
2. The character I never expected to love as much as I do now
3. The character everyone else loves that I don't
4. The character I love that everyone else hates
5. The character I used to love but don't any longer
6. The character I would shag anytime
7. The character I'd want to be like
8. The character I'd slap
9. A pairing that I love
10. A pairing that I despise

I want a friggin' Lord of the Rings RP.

Or maybe I should get back to work on finishing up the story [livejournal.com profile] en_jeudi and I and some others started two years ago...

Kind of a rip-off of a meme that Megan (otherwise known as "the-girl-who-is-in-Europe-right-now, lucky-her :-p) did:
I typed my first name into a fanfiction.net summary search for three of the biggest Mary-Sue fandoms on the market: Harry Potter, LoTR, and PoTC.

In Harry Potter, I...
...am a "very pretty girl" from the year 1929.
...get bound o_O While Hufflepuffs sing Bohemian Rhapsody, apparently.
...am Harry's daughter.
...am somehow related to Lupin.
...am Lupin's girlfriend (not in the same fic, thankfully)
...the friend of "Christina".
...am a kid in an orphanage.
...am Oliver Wood's girlfriend.
...am a Weasley.
...am a "shy Ravenclaw" who "may just be the trick to make Harry forget Cho and fight Voldemort".
may just be the trick to make Harry forget Cho and fight Voldemort".
...am Snape's neice.
...am Harry's daughter. Again.
...am someone who has "tension" with Draco Malfoy.

THE WINNER: Harry Potter and the Chosen One by Amber PotterHannie Grange
Summary: Harry, Ron, and Hermione are enetering their 6th year. To their surprise there surprise they meet two exchange students from America. Emily Smith and Fiona Hermsdale. Emily is the Chosen One aka The Slayer. Will Harry fall in love with Emily?Chp15 up soon.

LoTR and PoTC under the cut )

And now... the result of watching too much 'Invader Zim'... )

I-CON 23

Took a little drive down to SUNY Stony Brook today, to attend the I-CON convention (NAF's first trip! Whee!).

First of all, it's very cold on Long Island. Hasn't anybody told these people it's Spring yet?

The first thing I accomplished was a trip around the Dealer's room. Here's the loot:
'Escaflowne' soundtrack ^_^
Utada Hikaru, Deep River - pretty good; I love her voice and the fact that she can actually pronounce English words when she has to.
Malice Mizer, Memoire + Voyage Sans Retour - very surreal music. Also, I think they're all transvestites/drag queens.
'Otaku no Video' - makes me happy ^_^
The Languages of J.R.R. Tolkein or something along those lines. I've already started creating Elvish names :-D

On that same vein, I've started reading The Silmarillion. Whatever posessed me, I have no idea.

After the Dealer's room I went to a panel on creating original cultures, which was pretty interesting. One of the panelists was, I think, the founder of the Original Klingon Institute ("The people who brought you 'Hamlet' in the Original Klingon."). I actually think I got something out of it.

Then I watched a piece of an anime called 'S-Cryed' that didn't seem to have a very good plot and even worse translation (One line was: "My balls... my balls are gone!" where it could have easily been, oh I don't know, "spheres".).

Pretty much the only drawback was the hour and a half drive. Blurg.

P.S. I finally finished reading The Hunchback of Notre Dame (something I started almost a year ago). It seriously has one of the coolest endings EVER.
a_leprechaun: (Default)
So, yeeeeees. LoTR won. I still haven't watched about the last half hour because I went to sleep and we recorded the rest... But I will watch it. :-D

And now, the category of "Yes, LoTR won and that's all fine and good, but I would've been OK with it if....."
...The "Triplets of Belleville" song won for Best Original Song (even though Annie Lennox's performance of "Into the West" made me cwy ;_;). Did you hear that song? I mean did you hear it?? They used a bicycle as a percussion instrument for Pete's sake!
..."American Splendor" won for Best Adapted Script. I realize it was unlikely since so few people have even heard of that film, but here's my advice: If you haven't seen it...DO.
..."Pirates of the Carribean" had won for anything. It's really too bad that it had to be in with LoTR in every category (except for Best Actor...bloody bias against comic characters...)

AAAAAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRRRRGH when am I EVER going to see RoTK a third time???????????!!!!!
::begs the movie:: please don't go out of theaters for the next two weeks! ::shniff:: pwease?

yeah, now I'm gonna do homework. really. ^_^;;
a_leprechaun: (Default)
...and then I promise I'll go to bed.

Taken from [profile] en_jeudi's journal:

1. Elijah's eyes or Billy's eyes: Gluh, that's a toughie. Lij does seem the obvious answer, doesn't he? But I feel I must remain faithful to my Billy ::hugz tha Scottish::
2. Dom or Billy: Billy, but of course. ^_^
3. Viggo or Orlando: Orlando. I find Viggo much less attractive out of costume. IN costume, however... (see "Legolas or Aragorn" ~_^)
4. Elijah or Sean Astin: Errrrrrrrrrr......... Lij.
5. Dom's smile or Billy's smile: Billy's. Love that little Scottish grin *sparkles*
6. (Frodo & Sam) or (Merry & Pippin): M&P are mah homeboys. (peace out dawg)
7. Legolas or Aragorn: ARAGORN.
8. FOTR, TTT or ROTK (movie): RoTK
9. FOTR, TTT or ROTK (book): The second part of TTT and the first part of RoTK. In short, all the chapters where Pippin r0x0rz :-D
11. Elves, hobbits, or dwarves: Why, hobbits of course. ~_^
12. Rivendell, Mirkwood or Lothlorien: Lothlorien- ooh, look at the pwetty lights... :-D
13. Gandalf or Saruman: Ummm, let's see. Gandalf = awesome badass good guy who can talk to moths and scare off Winged Nazgul. Saruman = creepy evil dude who invents gunpowder and ends up getting pwnz0red by Ents. Looks like Gandalf wins ~_^
14. Arwen, Galadriel, Rosie or Eowyn: Eowyn.
15. Nazgul or The Ents: Ents.
16. Into The West, May It Be or Steward Of Gondor: INTO THE WEST. Arrrrrrgh, the beautifulness ::faints::
17. Gollum or Grima: Gollum. At least the Smeagol side of Gollum can have some endearing qualities. Whereas Grima's just a complete sleazeball.
18. King Theoden or Denethor: Theoden. The guy just rocks.
19. Minas Tirith or Minas Morgul: Minas Tirith. Holy cow, you shoulda seen my reaction to that first shot of the city on RoTK... I literally went breathless.
20. FOTR commentary or TTT commentary: Haven't heard the TTT one yet, but FoTR definetly has its fine points (Tig, Cup, etc etc)
21. Elijah's butt or Dom's butt: To ditto [profile] en_jeudi: "Um. :;scratches head:: I don't think about this." Though now that the question's been asked, I probably will. :-D
22. Haldir or Elrond: Elrond. Even if his council is a really boring chapter. ^_^;;
23. Eomer or Faramir: Faramir.
24. Gondor or Rohan: Gondor. But not because of Denethor.
25. (Aragorn & Arwen) or (Eowyn & Faramir): Eowyn & Faramir. I believe anyone who's read the books would be inclined to pick this one (the scene where they hook up = uber-romance ^_^)

Songset #2!

Ain't I proud of myself :-D

The song is Paul Williams' "Flying Dreams", the theme from The Secret of Nimh.

'Flying Dreams' songset by a_leprechaun )

I find this both uniquely amusing and frighteningly realistic:
The Church of Peej.
I joined, of course.
a_leprechaun: (Default)
When PJ won for Best Director, Dom cwied. ;_; Shniff.

Charleze Theron's speech was cool: "I'm from a farm in South Africa!"

It was interesting listening to the Afganistan guy. What was with Nicole Kidman's expression during his speech though?

I definetely need to buy the RoTK soundtrack. Not download. It'd feel bad stealing from them :-D

Did y'all see that little look Dom gave the camera while they were all up there? And it happened to be during a moment when I was *ahoom* admiring him. Very much Squee.

So, yeah- Go RoTK! All the way! To the Oscars and beyond! (Except... what's beyond the Oscars? ::shrug::...)

Bowling for Soup's 'Where to Begin' songset by a_leprechaun )

I love songsets- I will have to do more in the future! ^_^
