Ted's B-Day!

Well, today is Ted Raimi's birthday, and I just thought I'd say have a happy one. I know you are because you're kind of rich and kind of famous and your brother is a very rich and very famous director who gives you pretty nice supporting roles in every movie that he's ever made. So, anyway, I'm not bitter or anything, really. You may remember Ted from Xena and Hercules as the bumbling sidekick Joxer (though Joxer would never think of himself that way), and from SeaQuest as a character who's name I can't remember. The only things that I can remember about that show were: 1) The talking dolphin. Wasn't he British or something? 2) That episode where this guy's mother comes from the past, but she's young and she doesn't now anything about the future, and she goes to take a bath, but she takes off her clothes, and apparently in the future, you don't have to. Something about sonic showers or something. 3) That guy from Jaws. You know the one I'm talking about. Robert something. Or Roy. And he wore those glasses in the movie, and there was that part where he looked up because the shark was coming. Or something like that. Good show. I think. Anyway, happy birthday Ted! Oh and by the way, the Scifi Channel officially blows. Just getting you up to date.

Queen of the Universe

Right now I'm listening to Queen-Princes of the Universe. I just feel like singing, because I am officially done with exams, which makes me feel all tingly inside. That's all I just wanted to say that I'm very happy!

Spin, Spin, Twirl Around!

Well School Rumble has been officially taken off the net. And I don't know if this will be the end of fansubs as we know it or not. For those of you that don't know, fansubs are Japanese television shows that are put on a computer and subtitled in English. I just recently discovered them and think they are a wonderful way of seeing an anime before you decide to buy. The only thing is that some people, instead of buying it, simply put it on a disc and send it around to their friends. I have my eye on three different series that I never would have known about had it not been for fansubs. And while I understand the industries point of view, I wouldn't buy a movie if I wasn't sure I was going to like it, and I wouldn't spend 50+ on a series that I had never seen at least the first couple of episodes of. It's like our favorite television shows here. We wouldn't buy them if we hadn't first seen them on tv, and loved them. But because the animes only come on in Japan, then we don't get that first chance of experiencing them, before they get to DVD. While anime has made leaps and bounds, becoming more and more popular by the year, it is still not something that people have a lot of access to. So, if they want to know about a new series, they only know what they read online, but don't have any friends that they could borrow it from, or someplace to see it before they buy. Usually, when I download a new series I'll only get the first episode, and then if I bother to download any other episodes, then I'm definately going to buy the DVD's. Titles that I'm wild about right now include, Sensei No Ojikan (Doki Doki School Hours), Monster, Shura No Toki, School Rumble, and Bleach. In my opinion some of the best stuff out there and the only things that I have on my computer. Also the only DVD's that I'm asking for this Chirstmas. Personally, I think that fansubs do more than just spread more anime around. They create a community where not only can Americans who love anime just talk about new and emerging series, but otakus can lovingly sub those animes and deliver them to the people who love them. I've seen many occurances where the fansubbed version of something was better than the versions that were put of for purchase. So, sound off yourselves if you have any thoughts about fansubs, and even if you don't this can relate back to downloading music or video.

Never Thought of the Moon This Way...

"The moon was out in a watery way. It looked like a ball of paper from the back pocket of jeans that have just come out of the washing machine, which only time and ironing would tell if it was an old shopping list or a five-pound note." --Douglas Adams, So Long and Thanks for all the Fish

I Don't Wanna Wait...

I sick and tired of people telling me that I'm not acting like myself. Maybe I act like this all of the time, and since you don't really know me, maybe you don't know that I've been putting on a fron all this time and pretending to be something that I'm not. Because I'm not above that you know. Anyway with finals coming up almost everyone on the Internet is freaking out. Everybody is having to do a huge amount of studying in a small amount of time. A prospect that I'm finding is becoming a larger and larger part of my own relality as the days go by. I've only got three more, and two more days of tests, but these are finals and decide whether or not you are going to pass the class, which can put a fair amount of strain on a person. I don't even get exams, if you didn't get it the first time arouns (i.e. tests) then why bring it back for you to mess up on again? Anyway, so that's what I'm doing now, dodging the people that I thought were my friends, and trying not to fail college. Not much of an existance, but what are you going to do?

Some Planet Thingy

You Are From Neptune

You are dreamy and mystical, with a natural psychic ability.
You love music, poetry, dance, and (most of all) the open sea.
Your soul is filled with possibilities, and your heart overflows with compassion.
You can be in a room full of friendly people and feel all alone.
If you don't get carried away with one idea, your spiritual nature will see you through anything.

New Gig

Well, I've got some good news. Yesterday I found out that I'm going to hosting a show on my school radio station. The only reason that I didn't post about it yesterday ws because I was busy finding out the love of my life was married (I'll write about later), and by the time I got back to my room I only had tme to read a little of the Hitchiker's Guide and go to bed. I'll be hosting a show somewhere between 12 -5am on Sunday mornings (Saturday nights). So, for those of you (yeah right) wh live in Winston-Salem, you can catch me on 90.5. However, if you don't live here, you can listen online here. That'll be pretty fun, I guess. If you're wondering what kind of music I'll be playing, i do't even know yet. I'll try to mix it up with rock, rap, country, R&B, and everything in between. Hopefully, it'll attract more people like me who like all kinds of music. I'm going to be playing all the best music that I've found over the years, and introduce it to a new audience, and I might even have a segment or two about the random stuff that I do everyday. Mayhaps. So, anyway, once I get a schedule, I'll post it here, and you can check it out. Listen and learn, people, listen and learn.

Luck of the Irish

This started out as a response to a post that one of my friends wrote, but then it took on a life of it's own. So I started to expand upon it, and I've come up with this:

Okay, firstly 'Luck of the Irish' is the best Zoog movie ever! A young just-getting-sexy Ryan Merriman, that little nazi guy from the blues brothers, Jigs Galore! Seriously, that movie is the junk. And I'm not just saying that. Side note here, anyone notice how hot Ryan Merriman has gotten? I've liked him since he was in the Pretender. And another hint that we were meant to be: He was born nine days before I was. Though, that could mean that I'm more suited for Hayden Christiansen (young Darth Vader) who was born on exactly my birthday. Then again, so was Suge Knight . Yikes. Maybe I'd better stop thinking along those lines. Back to the movie, however. It starts out with a kid named Kyle. He doesn't know anything about where he came from, but everyone else seems to notice his never ending stream of good luck. So long story short, he gets his lucky coin (it holds all of the good luck of their whole bloodline) stolen by a bad guy named Seamus McTiernen. Another side note here, the guy who played Seamus is the same guy who played a Jesus wannabe on Xena. I'm not gonna hate though. Anyway, he finds out that his mother's side of the family is inhabited by Leprechauns! So, it's on to get his lucky coin back and return his mother (who has shrunk as a result of their luck being taken away) and himself (also rapidly shrinking) back to normal. So, in the end Kyle learns that it's important to know where you're from, but it's even more important to know who you are. Gives you shivers, huh? Great movie, good acting, and I don''t know a single person whose seen it and hasn't given it the thumbs up. I can't even say as much for all the other craptacular crapilations that they've been throwing at us. Eddies Million Dollar Cook Off? The Cheetah Girls? Fifeteen Again? You Wish? Garbage to the nth power. But this movie not only gets you in the here and now, but it has massive lasting power. So, if you haven't already, see it. You'll feel lucky you have. Get it? Lucky? Like, the Irish? Oh, nevermind.

Arrested Development

I just finished watching 'Arrested Development', and realized that it is a really good show. I've known that for a while, but it's frickin' hilarious. You should watch it if you haven't been. Anyway, that's really it. So, um, okay.

Family Guy Quotes that Had Me Laughing For Days

Of course, anything Stewie says is hilarious, the one where Tom and Diane think the televsion is out is great, too. U've got about four faves, however,

1)The one where Peter and Bing Crosby talk about parenting:
Peter Griffin: Lois, our son has been blessed with a great gift. And I am going to do everything I can to nurture that talent and help him succeed, then I'm going to use him to live out all my frustrated hopes and dreams. Because that's good parenting, right Bing Crosby?
Bing Crosby: That's right Peter, and if your kids give you any lip you can beat them with a sack of sweet Velencia Oranges. They won't leave a bruise and it'll let 'em know who's boss, there's nooo doubt about it.
Peter Griffin: That... That doesn't sound like good parenting.
Bing Crosby: Are you givin' me lip boy? Because I'll take this belt off and put the smack down on you, is that what you want? [takes his belt off and starts beating Peter]

2) Charles Lindhburg has an unfortunate potty training incident:
Charles Lindburgh: Honey, I flew solo across the Atlantic, I think I know a thing or two about potty training. (baby, while playing with the plunger, flushes himself down the toilet) OK, don't panic. He was kidnapped. You go phone the police, I'll write the ransom note.
Mrs. Lindburgh: [pointing at Amelia Earhart] But what about Amelia? She saw everything. Charles Lindburgh: (With an evil look) I'll take care of her.

3) In 'To Live and Die in Dixie' anytime that Peter is attacked by that raccoon, or makes refernce to 'raccoon wounds'

4) The Kool-Aid thing. That had me laughing for days.

My Quest For Costumes! Featuring The Most Annoying Girl in the World, and Rats

Well, my morning started off as usual. I woke up at 7:00, moments before my alarm went off and sprung briskly out of bed. After a quick shower, and some morning calethisnics, I was on my way to UNCG to lesirely stroll, and pick from an abundant source of international clothes for the Student International Association's International Fashion Show.

This is how my day would have started out if I lived in the land of 'Perfect'. While we're on the topic, don't you just hate that town? Remember from the Walgreens commercial, and they live in that town where everything is perfect? Well, I think that would suck. Who decides what's perfect anyway, with little blonde-haired, blue-eyed kids running around in white tennis suits and...

Back to the point. The only truth in the above statement is the fact that I woke up at 7:00. But instead of being able to pound my alarm clock into submission before it sounded, I was awakened by my friend, Imani, who called me exactly at 7 on the dot. Now, I know that you've heard about on the dot, before, but seriously, she was on the dot. I looked at my watch and the second hand was on the 12. I was like, did we scyncronize watches when I wasn't looking or something. Anyway, so then I had to ride over to UNCG (another college) to get some costumes for the Fashion show we're having. I rode with this girl named Melinda, who is seriously the most annoying person I have ever met. She was arguing with her boyfriend Stuart (and she must have said his name 8000 times), and the whole way there her nasally (while, mysteriously at the same time squeaky) was driving me up the walls. So, then we finally get to the school, seconds before I reach out and bang Melinda's head against the car window. Once inside we have to search through nasty, dusty, old clothes to try to find international stuff for our fashion show. Then when we were almost done, the janitor comes by and tells us that there are rats infesting the clothes. Now, I'm freaked out because I was climbling all in those clothes, elbow deep in rows of them and who knows what could have been in there. Thankfully, I'm really not afraid of rats, so I shook it off and moved on. Anyway, so we get back in the car, and Melinda gets on the phone again, and thankfully I'm able to drift into unconciousness, and not have to hear a thing. I know that you probably don't care about this, but I thought to myself the one thing that was keeping me from beating Melinda to a bloody pulp is that when I get back to my room, I can write all about it in my blog. Right on, right on.

Links for Liberals

As much as I hate attaching labels to people, I just thought that was a catchy title. Check out these links that are very interesting, funny, or otherwise:

--Diffferent pictures of people telling the world sorry. Young people, older people, blackm, white and brown people, people from all over the world who love peace, and justice and wanted Bush out. I'll probably do one and send it over there. The world needs to know, that I love them, and I feel bad about this whole thing. I can say that right now, Sorry World, I love you and I won't give up if you don't.

--This is the sister site to sorry everybody, as it has reponses to apologies from all over the world. Thanks world.

--News stories from a different slant, with the same information.

--Real Bush Countdown clock. It'll be this long until George Bush is legally barred from running for President again. And the real healing can begin.

New Blog

I'm starting to think that my color scheme is to dark. Like, you can barely read what's on the page because everything is so dark. Is that just me? Maybe I need to turn the brightness up on my screen. Anyway, here is a blog that I found, wait, not really, a blog of a person that I know. Anyway, she is literally the biggest Buffy fan I have ever met, and I know some hardcore Buffy fans. Anywho, that's only one in a long list of attributes that I thought of last night, but can't think of to write down right now. Anyway, so here's the link:


So, check it out.
