I want a rename token. Really badly. I created this journal when I was--what--fourteen? I can't take it anymore. The username for this thing is embarrassing and shameful. I don't want to create a new account because this one has far too many entries to copy-paste-backdate, and the software I downloaded for saving it all crashed. SO, I'm going to leave this offer up here and if anyone wants my undying gratitude or if you just don't know what the fuck to get me for my birthday or Christmas, then now you know. Thanks.
What is your LEAST favorite movie of all time, and why?

Naked Lunch.

I will seriously never forgive you, Ashley. That was cruel.

Hannukah Miracle

My first attempt at a stoner comic; it's based on a true story. It probably won't make any sense to anyone who wasn't there (click picture to see full-size image).

I feel like I'm coming down with a flu. My throat hurts as well as my head and my eyes. I hope it doesn't get too bad: I get downright unpleasant when I can't sleep due to nasal congestion.

I guess there's nothing a hot bath, noodle soup, and Harry Potter can't fix...right? Right...? :(


Nice one, weird kid.

So I don't usually (more like ever) voluntarily start watching a TV series. However, some offhanded comment on an LJ community today led me to discover Misfits.

It's a British sci fi series about a group of young people who are doing community service together and ~wacky shit~ happens all over the place. It's much more interesting than it sounds. It's terribly funny and really intriguing and has a great soundtrack and goddamn I need someone to talk about it with. So, um, does anyone care to marathon it with me on my next day off (Thursday)? I'm only on the third episode, and there are only six episodes total so far so it won't take TOO long if we start from episode one. IT'S SO GOOD, I PROMISE.


P.S.--Detective Inspector Shipton is in it, and he plays a cop here as well. *Hint, nudge, hey Ashley, cough*


Writer's Block: First and only

Is there a film that you think is perfect in its original form and should never be remade?

First movie that popped into my mind. Especially perturbing because it IS being remade. That's right, folks. We Americans can't possibly stomach a Swedish film, so we have to go and fuck it up. Especially angering for me since Spoilers!Collapse )

I'm reading the book right now and I am completely sucked in. I'm reading it slowly because I never want it to end, but I'm already 3/4 of the way into the book. I do recommend though, folks, that you watch the original Swedish film before you poison your brain with this abomination of a remake.

Writer's Block: Tolerance 101?

If you could create/select a new subject that had to be taught in high school, what would it be, and why?

I really would have liked a class in which to learn how to do my taxes, balance a checkbook, draft a resume, and conduct myself with proper business etiquette. Those not only are necessary life skills, but completely overlooked in the public education system. In fact, it would have just been nice to have taken a class centered around practical life skills in the real world because, honestly? I have no idea how to do my taxes, nor do I know how to balance a checkbook, nor am I particularly financially responsible. I don't know, it just would have been nice not to have to rabidly Google things and hope that I'm doing them correctly.


In this post be LOST spoilers. If you haven't seen the newest episode, I advise you not to click the cut(s). You have been warned.

Okay, so we just learned that Wouldn't you like to know?Collapse )

If this is the sort of thing LOST is going to start giving me--answers that are there, though you have to think about them and even then it's ambiguous--is something I could get used to. I'm tired of these wrapped-in-a-bow bogus answers to questions we've been asking for YEARS like Oh no they did not!Collapse ) and Oh yes they did!Collapse ) 'Cause that was some bullshit.

[NOTE: My memory is notoriously spotty, so if I'm missing something, let me know in the comments.]


Writer's Block: But enough about you

If it were possible to clone a same-age version of yourself, do you think the two of you would be friends? Do you think you'd enjoy each other's company or find the similar point of view boring?

I mentioned something about this offhandedly tonight. Funny it should be in Writers Block.

If I could clone a same-age version of myself, I probably wouldn't have any interest in hanging out with myself, and neither would my clone. I mean, how boring would that be? It would be just like verbalizing my inner monologue and no one wants that. Hanging out with myself would be like being stuck in a bad marriage, right down to noticing and picking apart every flaw (is my nose really that crooked? Do I really talk like that?). However, having said that, I would most definitely do two things with myself:
A) I'd get me to do my hair. I need someone with a 360 degree view of my dome to control the jungle growing on top of it. Believe me--styling my hair is intensive labor, and who better to do it than, well, me?
B) I would make out with me. Just once, and just to see what it was like. Don't tell me you wouldn't make out with yourself either if you had the chance.

P.S.--I am currently obsessed with "Diplomat's Son" by Vampire Weekend. I love everything about it: the afrobeat flair, the techno inserts, the story in the lyrics, the melancholy of Ezra's croon contrasted with the lighthearted beat and piano tappings, the gay undertones. Everything. Love this song so much it might just win a place up near "The Start of Something."
