New Years Resolutions

Yes, they suck. Yes, they (usually) never get completely fulfilled and all attempts die by the middle of January, but this time, I'm going to try to push myself to fulfill my resolutions and keep fulfilling said resolutions. Speaking of which, I should probably list them out for the coming year:

RS' RESOLUTIONS FOR 2013:
  1. Hang out with friends more often
  2. Not spend as much time on this machine as I do now (which doesn't mean CVON will be destroyed)
  3. Do something other than spend 24 hours online like GETTING A JOB!
  4. MAKE more friends
  5. Encourage more dates with friends (kind of repetitive to #1, but you see where I'm going with this)
  6. Find ways to maintain the relationships I currently have
  7. Actually finish a short story/novel and show it to the public (sorry!)
  8. Go to a midnight premiere of some awesomely-amazing movie with my friends
  9. Get a significant other!
  10. Do something amazing to someone/yourself

Anyway, I encourage you to follow your resolutions in 2013. Oh, by the way, Happy New Year, CVON fans! Goodbye, 2012, hello, 2013!

<3, RS

What I Thought about "Les Mis" (SPOILERS!!)

Well, I've seen the musical a couple times before and have the music on my iPod, so I've listened to it enough times to know the lyrics and know the story enough to know what's going on. I wouldn't say that I've listened it enough times that I've become super-obsessed with the show. I like it, but I don't LOVE it like any other "Les Mis" fan would admit. But that doesn't mean that I didn't like the movie when I went to see it. Here are the things I liked about it (feel free to skip over this post if you haven't seen "Les Mis"/you don't want the whole franchise ruined for you b/c you're such a huge fan):
  1. Anne Hathaway's performance as Fantine. Heartbreaking and passionate, which deserves an Oscar (PLZ!)
  2. Sacha Baron Cohen and Helena Bonham Carter as the Thenardiers. 'Nuff said.
  3. How the movie set its tone. Instead of the happy, bright mood that the musical usually goes through, Tom Hooper went for the dark and gritty underbelly of the French Revelation (?), which was very refreshing than the happy-go-lucky, "even though some people's lives sucked in this play, it's totally fun!" attitude
  4. Tom Hooper bringing people like Colm Wilkinson and Samantha Barks, who've done "Les Mis" so much that they know everything about the play, into the main casting
  5. Hadley Frasier was in it! If you missed it, he was the soldier from the opposing force in the Barricade fights with the manly mustache and yelling all that stuff about "you have no chance, no chance at all, etc."!

Of course, where there's good, there's bad stuff. Prepare to break down and cry at my accusations, "Les Mis" fans.
  1. Hugh Jackson as Jean Valjean. Didn't really work with this choice of casting. I mean, I kinda know why they did it, since he's been on Broadway and Hollywood for a number of years now and has a built-up career, but it didn't work. I really, really wanted to laugh out loud whenever Hugh was belting out a climactic solo because he sounds like a singing goat instead of the grand voice that the previous Jean Valjeans gave the audience. My respect for Hugh (whatever was left) has gone from watching him as being Jean Valjean for about three freaking hours.
  2. Not that much time on the Thenardiers. This was a HUGE problem for me because I consider the Thenardiers as a treasured "Les Mis" classic. I mean, they spread out the Thenardier couple and their humor so much in the play but in this movie, it's just like "oh, here they are and we need to go back to Hugh Jackman's awesome-azing singing". I would have loved it if Tom Hooper had spent A LOT MORE time on Sacha Baron Cohen and Helena Bonham Carter as the Thenardiers. I probably would have laughed harder at all the jokes that were being sped by.
  3. The camera shots. Some of the choices for the camera shots bothered me. There's this one scene at the very end that had a person on one side of the screen and a huge chunk of empty wall space on the rest of the screen. It was really distracting.
  4. Here, I should be criticising how Russell Crowe wasn't a good-enough Javert and how he can't sing, blah, blah, blah, but I actually liked him in this role. Sure, he wasn't that great of a Javert, but he was better than other stars would have been. I certainly thought that he did better than Gerard Butler had in that cursed POTO movie (a bit off the point, but I digress). Anyway, I liked Russell Crowe as Javert.

Anyway, go see it, but expect a lot of cringing. Dream of a better Dream, or go see the 25th anniversary concert.

P.S. PLZ LET ANNE HATHAWAY GET AN OSCAR NOM 4 "LES MIS"!!!!

MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL!!! (and other things)

Well, I guess I should explain why I was AWOL on CVON for such an extended period of time (for how much I usually post on this blog).

I was in the glorious city of New York...City...
I saw the usual things an average toruist would see in NY; Times Square, the Empire State Building, 30 Rock, except for the Statue of Liberty. I didn't have enough time or energy to go see it from where I was staying in Midtown. I also went to the M&Ms store and Hershey's store in Times Square, Dylan's Candy Bar, and even to the American Girl store, where I dreams I'd work there along with my best friend. Turns out that's not where I would give my left foot to work for... I even saw a couple of Broadway plays: The Heiress and The Book of Mormon (both of which I LOVED).
So, in the briefest summary I can manage, I saw a lot of art, sculptures, taxidermy, what have you, walked entirely too much, got a cold halfway through the trip, was delayed a day on the flight home and was extremely tired every night. But it wasn't as bad as it sounds like. Every night, I was treated to cable TV in my room and free hot chocolate that was a kind of "serve yourself" kind of thing. But I'm super glad to be home for the holidays.

Speaking of which... MERRY CHRISTMAS, EVERYONE! I hope you all are filled with Yuletide cheer and tons of goodies from Santa! I certainly am! There's nothing like drinking yummy eggnog in a warm house with tons of snow falling outside, creating a Winter Wonderland. I hope you got to experience this with your friends and family this holiday season and I wish you the merriest of Christmases around the world.

Merry Christmas, Joyeux Noel, Froeh Weinachten, Feliz Navidad, God Jul, Llawen Nadolig, Gerlukkig Kerstfeest, and many more to you on this silent night, this holy night...

LOVE IN BIG CAPITOL CHRISTMASEY LETTERS, RS


P.S. Did you know that today is also the Feast of the Unconquered Sun? Pretty convenient in making this day the Birth of the Lord Savior...

The Hobbit P1: What I Thought About It... (Warning: SPOILERS!!!)

Oh my God...
IT WAS A-MAY-ZING!!! I totally thought I would seriously nerd my pants at the very beginning and/or way before the movie actually started, but somehow it was like i was watching any other movie, until Ian Holm narrated the first lines of the original text of "The Hobbit". It brought back memories of my dad reading it to me when I was little and just bringing me back to PJ's Shire made me feel all warm and fuzzy. To tell you the truth, I felt like I was back home (yes, very nerdy of me to say, but it's true!) I couldn't help letting some tears come out of my eyes and almost breaking down in the movie theater. But I calmed down enough to enjoy the rest of the movie.
I enjoyed seeing Ian Holm and Elijah Wood as Bilbo and Frodo Baggins, as well as seeing Galadriel, Elrond, Christopher Lee, and Ian McKellen again, not to mention having a whole ten minutes with Gollum again [:DD]. Plus the kick-ass awesome giant eagles of Middle Earth! :) The only problem I had with this movie was the villain (besides Smaug): it looked like something out of a World Of Warcraft game.:(
Anyway, I'll see you all later, when it's not so late! Happy Hobbit-days to you once more and try to go visit the Hobbit Hole sometime! ;)

Happy Hobbit-days!

Strangely enough, I was awake at midnight last night, but I wasn't at my local movie theater watching the midnight showing of "The Hobbit" (although now I'd give my left hand to be there right now). Although I was sleepily excited for the film's release. I totally geeked myself throughout today, screaming "HAPPY HOBBIT-DAYS!" to anyone I knew like a nut. I actually kind of feel bad for them now; they were probably like "WTF is wrong with her this time?"

But anyway, I'm getting sidetracked...

I'm extremely excited that it's finally came out! I even heard a couple talk about how good it was (!!!) as I was making my way through the day. Now I'm super excited to go see it and get that extreme-nerd adrenaline rush I only get when I watch awesome things I look forward to in epic surround sound! But it won't be tonight. Nope, sadly I will be busy tonight. And the night after that. And the night after that. And the night after that. And... well, you get the idea. But I'll find time out of my busy schedule to go and see it. After all, I want to see the updated Gollum, and the singing dwarves, and the elfin Cate Blanchet and Hugo Weaving, and Ian McKellen as a freaking wizard, AND TO SEE ELIJAH WOOD AND IAN HOLM AS FRODO AND BILBO BAGGINS AGAIN OMG I CAN'T WAIT ANY MINUTE MORE WHY IN THE NAME OF HELL IS IT SO FREAKING AWESOME I WANT TO GO SEE IT NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sorry about that. My nerdness knows no bounds...

Anyway, I hope you guys who saw it think it's awesome. Is it awesome? PLZ TELL ME!!! And I'll sign off by saying the very traditional greeting:

MERRY HOBBIT-DAYS!!!

<3, RS

P.S. I know this has gone around so many times it's almost sickening, but my sympathies to the families of the victims in Connecticut. I'm sorry about the losses of loved ones and I'm sorry things happened the way they did.

I. Effing. Love. Peter. Jackson.

I don't know if you guys know this, but I effing love Peter Jackson. Imagine a world completely void of Peter Jackson: it sucks! I seriously contribute everything good in life to the amazing Peter Jackson. Why am I praising the Almighty PJ, you ask? Well, for these reasons that I'm going to force you to listen to (jk):
  1. He's from New Zealand, aka location shots for Middle Earth in the LOTR movies (we'll get to this later...)
  2. He's a freaking knight. Apparently, he was appointed a Knight Companion of the New Zealand Order of Merit in 2010. How nice of the New Zeals!
  3. He's married to Fran Walsh, one of the writers of the LOTR movies. Fun fact: she's the unearthly screetches of the Nazgul. I totally geeked my pants when I found out.
  4. He directed the LOTR movies! He oversaw the location shots, the principal photography, the artisty, the everything, and created Middle Earth for those poor people who couldn't read the books...
  5. He won a freaking Oscar for Best Picture in 2003. That's pretty good considering that he directed three fantasy movies.
  6. He produced District 9 and The Adventures of Tintin, and directed the King Kong movie with Adrien Brody in it.
  7. He's making The Hobbit into three movies, which is good but bad. The bad part about this is not knowing if he'll pull off telling the story of Bilbo into three different sections, adding some stuff that wasn't in the original book. But it's PJ! He'll do wonderfully as always (I hope)...
  8. He helped create WETA, which contributed making movies like LOTR (duh), James Cameron's Avatar, District 9, and other films freaking amazingly cool.
  9. He's a great director hands down, no questions asked.
  10. He actually cameoed in some of his films. I won't give them away for those who want to find out for themselves, but here's the link for those who can't wait and want to make sure I'm not being a lying prick.

So, here's my list. If any one of your friends/enemies/frenemies goes up to tell you that Peter Jackson's movies are quote-unquote gay, give them this list and say "screw you, PJ rocks!"

As always, have a smashing day, and all the New Zeals out there in the world, I heart you guys!

Quick News on the Cats

As of the beginning of this week, Fred, George, and Hermione have been adopted and are probably still exploring their new homes! The only ones who are left in this family are Harry and Skeeter. If you're in the Seattle area, please visit them and consider adopting one of these sweet cats. I'd hate to think if they weren't adopted by the time Christmas was over...

Anyway, just hope you wanted to hear about the cats (if you didn't, you really had no choice)! Now go back to your lives!

You're Still Here! :)

I feel like I haven't posted anything in the past couple of weeks (when it was only a couple of days), but I still see people checking up on CVON, probably thinking "is there anything new? Oh, okay, I'll just sit all depressed until that RS character posts something again..."

Hopefully, you don't really think that... 0_0

Anyway, the reason I haven't been posting anything in the past couple of weeks (really, in the past 24+ hours) is because I'm pretty busy on something. I don't want to give anything else away, otherwise I'll lose interest. Just letting you know that if I don't post anything in the next couple of days, I'm busy concentrating on my "busy-ness".

In the meantime, enjoy this video during your temporary stage of RS depression. I'm so glad that you're still here to join the ride and that you haven't lost hope yet! :)

Christmas Fever!

It's weird that about this time of season I get this strange illness named "Santa-Clausus Evergreen-with-Snow-itis Syndrome". You might know it as the time when you get overly-obsessed with Christmas drawing ever closer and so you contract the common illness that is

CHRISTMAS FEVER

 

Anyway, I'm obsessed (like you didn't know that). And it's not helping that I'm watching Christmas movies from the 1950s, drinking the most delicious soy-eggnog you will ever have the grace to taste, and looking out my window, wondering WHY IN THE NAME OF SATAN CLAUS THERE IS NO EFFING SNOW YET??!!! I mean, really, I'm ready for it! At least one day of snow that covers everything before I'm set loose to create Merry-Christmas-and-Happy-New-Year-ing with my family with friends (with a bunch of work to take home, I'll bet you a billion dollars >:( ).

Anyway, what I'm trying to get across is that I'm really, really excited for Christmas (WITH SNOW!!!!!!!!!!) to come around and I can't wait to be free to celebrate this jolly time of year! :)

PCDS (Post Cat Depression Syndrome)

Yes, I have entered PCDS. The room that occasionally went bump in the night (and the day) is silent and I'm choking back tears of sadness and of cat litter smell. The once furry kittens I helped take care of are now gone, probably being viewed by volunteers down at the MEOW cat shelter and, hopefully, some loving family hoping to adopt a sweet pair of kittens to love and to take care of.

Yesterday was the last chance to see them before they would be transported to the shelter. I went in for about 30 minutes in the afternoon, a quick visit compared to the one I'd make later that night. At that last visit, I went from normal, to happy, to melancholy, to overly depressed in the hour that I last visited them. I had one last play with them, one last final cuddles with the ones that would tolerate being held. I heard all of them purr at the same time, which didn't help me compose myself free from tears. They were wonderful when I held them, not as wild as they normally were. I held Fred and Hermione for about five minutes, just peacefully lying in my arms, purring (once again, not helping me from bawling my eyes out). George was nice in not trying to gnaw on my fingers as I stroked under his chin and over his back. Harry was the worst of it: he was so sweet when I held him and he was so soft when I was holding him and petting him and he was purring! I couldn't help but hug him and gently squeeze him over and over again.
Finally, I had to leave the cat room to get on with my life. I looked at them all playing on the opposite side of the room and went out the door, not without taking one last look at them and saying "goodbye, kittens". Afterward, I was crying like this the rest of the night. After a while, I thought I was going to be okay when I noticed that the light was still on in the cat room (it was about 11:15 at night). I opened the door to turn off the light and saw all four kittens sitting right behind the opened door, looking up at me. I could barely take it. I lay in bed crying again and again and again and again.

And so, that brings me to today. Well, I'm still kinda bawling my eyes out, binging on ungodly non-healthy foods, really wishing I had ice cream....
Do you want to make a donation of one large tub of ice cream? Just send a coupon to theoriginalrspencer@gmail.com!

jk, jk....

Anyway, I'll wallow in the tides of my PCDS. But I'll be okay....eventually.....

I almost forgot that it's almost time for the End of the World (aka the end of the Mayan Calendar). In the preparations for the Mayan gods killing us all, I decided to let you know how long you have to do whatever the heck you wanted to do before you die. Enjoy the last days of your life!

All I Want for Christmas is...

To be honest, I don't really know. I mean, it's great that my family and friends give me stuff for Christmas, but if they had to ask what I specifically wanted, I would have no idea. Well, besides the regular request for Barnes and Noble gift cards...

What do I really want? Well, something cool, like if Claire's teamed up with MLP and sold a bunch of cool merchandise. I'm totally into the Claire's merch, not so much the weird brand-name stuff, like the Nightmare Before Christmas or Hello Kitty, but small stuff like cute, nerdy necklaces and hipster glasses. I also like the David and Goliath t-shirts at Fuego...

IS THERE SOMETHING WRONG WITH YOU WHEN YOU HAVE NO EFFING IDEA WHAT YOU WANT FOR CHRISTMAS??!!

I'd actually want some more movies and music to listen to, so maybe I'd ask for another iTunes card. I don't know, I don't know, I don't know!

Well, it would be really cool if I met someone famous for the day, but those famous people are busy with their own schedules and meeting less-fortunate kids with cancer.

I'm such a mess...

I'll leave you with the sane thoughts of Linus as I go and try to gather the rest of my dead brain cells to figure out some kind of wish list.

<3, RS

Dear Santa Claus,
How have you been? Please don't get the idea that I'm writing because I want something. Nothing could be further from the truth. I want nothing. Spend your time elsewhere. Don't bother with me. I really mean it. If you want to skip our house this year, go right ahead. I won't be offended. Really, I won't.

OMGZ! WRITING!

Hello there, my annoyed fans. I personally promise to stop posting 3 times a day and try and narrow it down to 1 post per day (how will I adapt?! jk). Even after two days of over-posting, I was starting to doubt if I would ever write on this blog again (since when I usually over-do things, I typically give up and try to forget about the embarrasing dorkness that just took place). Anyway, I'll try to limit myself and keep your urge to create an angry mob at bay. If I forget, however, you have my full permission to send an angry e-mail to theoriginalrspencer@gmail.com. I swear, this e-mail is real. I'm not trying to hack your e-mail accounts. It's a legit e-mail, so don't be afraid to e-mail me.

Anyway, I'm getting beside the point...

I found a mini-short story that I wrote not to long ago in one of my piles and piles of notebooks. I thought it was funny then, and I hope you guys find it funny now, my international viewers!

"OH MY GOD!" Tiffany looked manic.
"What?" I moaned. Knowing someone like Tiffany, it was probably something like...
"MY MASCARA WAND BROKE!" I groaned even more. It wasn't enough that we'd just crash-landed, not counting that we were most likely the only survivors, but I was going to live with Tiffany whining over her stupid stick for however long we were stuck in God-only-knows-where. Not only that, but she would also slow me down in gathering food, building shelter, etc. Maybe I can feed her to the wolves...
"OH MY GOD!!! THERE'S NO ONE LEFT! WE'RE GONNA DIE!!!!!" She started sobbing the most pathetic sob I have ever heard. For Tiffany.
"Don't worry. All we need is a working cell phone, if there's one left..."
"I've got one!" She immediately perked up (crap) and handed me her cell phone from inside her Pink jacket pocket.
"Well...call for help!" She dialed a number on her keypad and I wished she hadn't.
"Hello, this is Tiffany Brown. I'm calling to order a fuzzy, pink miniskirt please." It must have sounded weird on the other end as Tiffany grunted to avoid my mad tackle. "Oh, by the way, we're stuck in the middle of nowhere..." I slapped the phone out of her hand, sending it flying into a patch of burning wreckage.
She was so wolf food.

Pony Ancestors!!


These look familiar?
The first picture is a sculpture of a horse from the Han Dynasty in China. It reminded me of Maximus so much, I couldn't stop liking it! I randomly found it online and felt so happy that I did. This made my day, including the fact that Juror #2 in the Twelve Angry Men movie was the voice of the original Piglet! <insert squee sound here>
I wonder if these two are related....

Back to your lives, my worldly viewers!
Must! Write! GAH!

Unpleasantness Come Back from the Dead

Have you ever looked back on things that you created when you were young and instantly recoil at the crap you made? Well, this is one of my regretful works of "art" and, surprisingly enough, it wasn't even finished, so what you see is what there is. I hope you enjoy my rotting unpleasantness that's come back to haunt me. Here is "My Wacky Adventure", un-edited, straight from the dusty presses. I hope you "enjoy". ;)

Prologue
One stormy night, Dr. Frankenbokerfissssher was working on an experiment that involved spaghetti and whether or not ducks, aardvarks or cows would eat it  or not. Just as lightning flashed and thunder rumbled, Dr. Frankenbokerfissssher heard a knock on the laboratory door (not lavatory a.k.a. bathroom).
“Come in.” he said not bothering to look over his shoulder. He heard the door thump against the wall (flash flash boom boom) and he heard footsteps  coming toward him and his experiment. It must be    one of my fellow scientists. he thought. Then a    sudden pain arose at the back of his neck. Then everything went black.



Meanwhile

Meanwhile in Tortuga,  Captain Jack Sparrow was talking to Will Turner when his cell phone rang in an AMBER ALERT!! “Deleleleblee. Deleleleblee.”
“Oh for gods sake!!!” Jack exclaimed after a while of the annoying call of the AMBER ALERT!!!!!
“Now where did I put that annoying thing?” he said turning around while patting himself.
“It sound as if it’s coming from your boot.” answered Will. Jack turned around and shot an annoyed look at Will.
“Thanks a whole lot, Will.” he shouted. The drunken, wild, fighting people stopped whatever they were   doing (I don’t really know what they were doing) and turned toward Will and Jack.
“Nothing to see here.” said Jack. Then slowly everybody went back to what they were doing. Will leaned down and put his hand into Jack’s boot. He felt around for a few seconds and then he found Jack’s silver cell phone.
“Gimme that.” said Jack crossly swiping the cell phone from Will’s hand. He opened it and pushed some buttons until he reached the AMBER ALERT!!!!!!!!


AMBER ALERT!!!!!!!

Dr. frankenbokerfissssher is
Missing. He was in his
Laboratory when the experimento*
Scientists last saw him. When
they came to room 12345,
he and his top secret were GONE!!!!!!! Call
425-555-8843 or log on to
www. Experimento*.com to communicate to the
scientists.

After a while, Jack turned to Will and asked “Will,    are you ready for a quest?”
“I’m always ready.” he answered.
“Well, we’re going to create a posse. So let’s go to our first miscreant!” Jack yelled and suddenly Will Turner   and Jack Sparrow were standing in front of a cottage.
“How did we get here, Jack?” Will asked.
“No idea.’’ was the answer.











The gathering of the posse


Will walked toward the door of the cottage and knocked.
“Come in.” answered a voice. Will gestured at Jack and opened the door. They had walked into a sitting room with a wooden piano and a lot of chairs that were,  oddly enough, dusty.
“HELLLLLLLLOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! ANYBODY HOME???!!!!!” Jack thundered and Will felt the wood floor vibrate.
“Jack, is that you?!” the voice called.
“Yep.” Jack answered.
“Well, come into the living room and see ol’ Snow.”
“ ‘Snow’?” Will asked.
“Snow White.” answered Jack and Will nodded his head in response. He followed behind Jack and the 2 walked toward the living room. As they got nearer, they heard a TV program in the room in front of them. Jack and Will turned the corner and.....and saw the fattest person both had ever seen.
“OH MY GOD!!!” Jack shouted in astonishment. The person was, to Will, just a big, fleshy blob with not much rounder parts attached and the head had black hair with a red bow and eyes and nose and mouth.
“Are you Snow White?” both Jack and Will asked at the same time.
“WHAT HAVE YOU DONE WITH HER???!!!” Jack demanded. “I’ll call the police AND.....”
“Calm down, Jack. It’s me and I know, I need to take a workout.” the blob said.
“Wish granted!” said a voice that came out of nowhere. Jack and Will both heard a “POOF!” and there was the original Snow White.
“Hey. I’m thin again and I’m in.....JEANS!!!!!!!!” she screeched horrified.

In fact, mom cat Skeeter just left the house today to go to the MEOW shelter to be viewed for adoption (I admit I cried)!

I'll give you the info on each cat. Why?

Happy Eskimo is Happy...

I was a happy Eskimo earlier today in my warm, puffy Eskimo coat, running on pure inspiration (aka adrenaline) and feeding off its wonderful kick of energy. I felt the best I've felt in years and it was all thanks to that wonderful thing we're born with called imagination.

For days, I've been having my doubts about my new fanfic and how it's going to work because I just had the dream, and a bit of a beginning plan, but nothing else to go on. I figured out one thing, but had my doubts again that it would make sense and that made all my planning take a screeching halt on the Depressed Writer's Block runway. But today, I was trying desperately to think of any more ideas before my inspiration and willingness to do the project went under. In a spurt of adrenaline and inspiration sent from the Supreme Being in the Sky, I finally found some closure. I mapped out a plot line that actually finished the story in the way I wanted to, with a few background details that explained enough of the plot point decision that it didn't make me feel like a useless writer-of-crap. I felt overly giddy when I finished because I knew my idea wasn't going down the toilet like so many other of my potential projects. I only hope that I continue on in keeping this idea alive as I try to cram in writing time for myself when I'm not busy doing work and not screwing around with my time by watching dumb videos online (it happens).

So, as I stood in the freezing weather at the end of the day in my snuggly, warm Eskimo coat, I felt relieved that I didn't simply give up like I did with infinite projects before. I will try to get more stuff on FanFiction when I get the chance. Hopefully, this stuff will be okay and you guys won't hate me for it.

By the way, I'm not telling you anything more about what I created as the plot line of this project! HA! :P

Skyfall vs. Dark Knight

So, I saw Skyfall this weekend....
And it was okay...

I'M JUST KIDDING!!! IT WAS FREAKING AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :D


But still, I couldn't help notice something similar about the plot of Skyfall to another beloved classic called The Dark Knight. You know, that movie that came out a couple of years ago that blew everyone's minds with the complexity that just worked so well, and earned Heath Ledger the Oscar for Best Supporting Actor (after he sadly died). I'm not saying that Skyfall is another Dark Knight, for those who haven't seen it, but there are some elements that are sneaking their way into this new Bond movie.

So, I'll give you the link for the comparisons. If you don't want to spoil the movies for yourself, you don't have to click it, but I suggest for those who've seen both movies to check it out.

Live long, and always keep it shaken, not stirred.

P.S. Here are the comparisons!

Blizzard of Glass

A blizzard of glass feels like a million tiny knives cutting you to pieces
It cuts away your hair,
Your skin,
Your heart,
Your soul
I guess it feels like when something hurts you deep inside
A blizzard of glass comes from a desert of shards,
A building in ruins,
An evil heart, turned black as the years toll by
You feel the malice of the blades each time it slices a part of you
It destroys your happiness,
Your hopes, your dreams
It takes everything away from you in a flash of blinding light as the blades fly towards you
The blinding whiteness turns a deep red as they collide with you,
Into you,
Sinking deeper into your being until there’s nothing left to call your own
Beware the blizzard of hateful glass

FanFiction.net Update

Well, that took quicker than I ever thought....

Here's the profile page that I lovingly possess. Right now, it isn't much, but I'll update it to look all fancy. ;)

ZOMGANOTHERWRITINGIDEA!!!! :D

I just thought of it this morning and I don't know whether to be gleeful, insane, worried, or scared for what'll happen with this idea. But before I explain the idea, I need to tell you the dream I had:

Well, to be honest, I was already dreaming about something else that I can barely remember anymore. But in the middle of all that, I randomly thought "Hmm...what would happen if the Beast didn't survive in 'Beauty and the Beast'?" And the dream that I had before turned into this whole universe of Gaston running the castle (or a castle: the whole castle layout was different in my dream) and Belle being trapped in this relationship with him. And throughout this whole time, the forest around the castle (or at least, in my dream) was dying and decaying into this wasteland of dead plants and even lava (don't ask, it was a dream for God's sake!) and they were arguing in opera (which I thought was pretty cool) that Gaston was destroying the forest in an abstract way and that Belle had no authority or some weird ish like that and then I woke up when I wanted to hear what Gaston sounded like when he was singing in an operatic argument. :(

After that, I couldn't stop thinking about it. Even after I woke up, I spent several minutes just lying in my bed thinking about that weird section of my dream. I practically spent most of today with my ear buds in, listening to non-distracting music and occasional static from the radio, with a pillow put over my ears just so I could concentrate over this idea. I would just pause in the middle of walking to go get some cereal to think about how this idea could be expanded.

And so, I've come to the conclusion that I'll try and go with this idea. I won't tell you anything more than what I explained from my dream, 'cause when I do that, I typically jinx the whole project on myself. But I hope to give you guys some excerpts, if I don't get bored/stuck/feel like this is total shit and try and recuperate by watching way too much TV, etc. I also thought on signing up on FanFiction.com for some more constructive outlet. If I fail to do so, I always have this blog and you viewers to judge my life based on my creativity (just kidding). But if I manage to man up and sign up, I'll give you my profile to follow and lovingly idolize (just kidding again, I'm not forcing you. But seriously, IDOLIZE YOUR GOD, RS!)

Now, I have to find the right information, the right place to start this crapfest of fanfic, and find my creativity/courage to start writing this damn thing. IMAGINATION HO!

Until then, I hope you'll be kind to me, my blog, and my writings, because no one likes haters.

MERRY THANKSGIVING TO ALL!!! :)


Happy Turkey Day, my American readers! In the spirit of the holiday, I'll tell you what I'm thankful for in my life and how they've made my life for what it is today.

First of all, I am thankful for my loving family, who've always been there for me when I needed help and the occasional hug. I'm thankful for all they've given me: life, a good education, a sense of humor, all their love, and for the fact that they still have faith in the good (and sometimes the bad) that I do. Mom, Dad, thanks for all you've done for me. I love you!

Secondly, I'm thankful for my friends, who somehow have stayed with me even though I'm sometimes hard to deal with and sometimes a huge dork over the tiniest things. I'm glad for their own individual personalities, their sense of humor, the way they laugh when I tell a joke, and for their commitment to be my friend for however many years now. I love you guys and I can't wait to see what the future brings for us!

Third, I'm thankful for my health. It hasn't always been the best, but I've struggled through with the hiccups and dealt with the mishaps. I'm thankful for my medical help because I wouldn't be here without it and life wouldn't be the same. It would be like the movie "It's a Wonderful Life" sans the Jimmy Stewart backstory. Anyway, I'm thankful for my good health and that I've made it as long as this. :)

Fourthly, I'm thankful for books. Good God, am I thankful for books!!! Without them, my dad wouldn't have read anything to me at a very young age, thus I would have never developed a taste for reading and writing, thus I would have never written anything creative OR have built a small library of books for myself, thus I would never have created thus blog at all!!! Anyway, I'm thankful for the little adventures they give me every time I open a book and I'm thankful for those unforgettable classics that have impacted many lives and shaped World Literature for what it is for today. For that person who thought of the brilliant idea for a book and for those who have contributed to shaping the ever-growing library of Books Throughout History, I SALUTE YOU!!!

Speak of the Devil, I'm also thankful for my creativity and what I've done with it ever since I learned how to read and write. My mind is a lot healthier in terms of my imagination and I'm grateful for the things that I've produced with that imagination. It helps me thingk of solutions to problems (even if they're wrong) and it helps me think of other dimensions/universes/situations that haven't been thought of before. I'm incredibly grateful that my mind hasn't crumbled into the typical modern minds of iPhones, Droids, or Samsung Galaxy S'.

Another thing I'm grateful for is the sound of a/more than one cat purring. I know it sounds weird when you first read it, but think about it: the sound of a small little motorboat inside a living and breathing cat is one of the best sounds to hear in the world! It calms you down and gives you a sense if tranquility, plus the feeling that you're doing a good job with the cat/s you're taking care of. I love those little furballs and the appreciation for what I do for them every single day. <3

Finally, I'm thankful for you readers of this blog. Thank you so much for dealing with my psychotic episodes, random thoughts, and rants about how the world sometimes sucks. Thank you so much for sticking with me since the first post of CVON and I hope to see you viewers in the future!



<3, RS



P.S. I'm also thankful for our troops, those who help and for the spirit of America. LONG LIVE 'MERICA!!!! ;)

MERRY CHRISTMAS IN NOVEMBER!

I used to get cheesed off that people were celebrating Christmas when Thanksgiving wasn't even a week away. But now, I've been hooked by the jolly Christmas music playing on some of the local radio stations and I'm addicted to Christmas! :)
I hope you're enjoying the annoying Christmas ads and going insane from hearing the same Christmas jingles over and over and over and over and over.
......................
CHRISTMAS!

P.S. I hope you like the new layout I chose for the blog! :)

Night of Flames

We began to run
They ordered us to run
"Faster! Faster! Faster!"

Night had fallen
Never shall I forget the nocturnal silence
All this could not be real

Ten more steps
Eight, seven
Only four more steps

We stared at the flames
Never shall I forget those flames
Never shall I forget that smoke


Three
Two steps from the pit
I was face-to-face with the Angel of Death

Never shall I forget that night
Never

Lines from "Night" by Elie Weisel

Dear Unhappy Sky God...

PLEASE don't let me sleep tonight without any power. And please, please, PLEASE don't destroy anything through the power of nature. PLEASE!

Sorry I've haven't been posting creative stuff as much as I should. Life has just gotten in the way and my brain has momentarily died. On the plus side, I've been working on something to show you guys. All I can say is that it's about a floating eyeball, a little boy, a tyrannosaurus rex, and something to do with saving the world. Oh, and it has pictures. I hope you guys are pleased with the final product once I do upload the post!

Anyway, those who are in a rain/thunder/windstorm tonight, pray to the Sky God that nothing bad happens tonight/this morning/this afternoon/whatever the time is where you're reading this.

<3, RS

WTF, Twilight?!

WILL SOMEONE PLEASE EXPLAIN TO ME THE POINT OF THE PLOT TWIST IN THE NEW BREAKING DAWN MOVIE?! IT'S REALLY PISSING ME OFF THAT I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT THE HELL IT WAS FOR!

You want to know what I think? I think they put all that BS in there to try and look like Harry Potter 7 P2. After all, it did make about $168 million in opening week, plus all the Hogwarts vs. Death Eaters/monsters did look really cool. But, remember, there are fangirls out there who would love to get a piece of Robert Pattinson's and (more importantly) Taylor Lautner's biseps, 6 pack, and firm, sexy buttocks than see a bunch of old British farts with wands destroy each other in a battle for good and evil. This movie's already got $340.9 million in the opening weekend box office ratings.

....................................................

WHAT THE FLYING PINEAPPLE??!!

How in the name of all things holy did effing Twilight beat effing Harry Potter in box office ratings??!! I mean, what does Twilight teach? That a really attractive man is the only thing that matters in your life, even if he's a bit of a temperamental, blood-sucking psycho. What did stupid, not-as-successful Harry Potter teach us? That love and friendship can conquer all evil. And that British people have more awesome accents than Americans. Dammit.

Still, the point I'm trying to make is because I'm totally pissed off that the twist in Breaking Dawn had no point and it somehow turned into a ramble about how Harry Potter is more awesome than the Twilight movies. If you love the Twilight movies, I'm sorry, but they're kinda stupid compared to Harry Potter. I mean, what does a world of magic, British people, and trying to discover things about yourself with your friends who are trying to help you kill this one evil British creep who kills people, drawing this process out in 8 movies compare to a world of vampires, hot guys who turn into werewolves, and a depressed chick who has a habit of accidentally harming herself and causing a lot of trouble who wants to be with a blood-sucking monster for the rest of eternity, all drawn out in 5 movies?

WAKE UP, PEOPLE!

The Absolute Worst Novel-Made-Movie EVER!!!

As you might have guessed, I like reading. Yes it's true, I love to read. One of my favorite book series was (and is) Percy Jackson and the Olympians. A couple of years ago, a movie was made. I came to the theaters to see what Christopher Columbus (director of the first two Harry Potter movies, which was fantastically a-may-zahhh!!!) had done to contribute to the eager fans that wanted to see Percy Jackson on the big screen.

All I can say is that I was really, really, REALLY disappointed. I was literally silently counting on my fingers how many flaws that movie had. I gave up after thirty and designated it as a lost cause. About a year later, I rented the movie from my local library, got out my laptop, and listed how many flaws this movie had because I lost track after the thirty flaws I ticked off in the theater, which I've lovingly decided to spoil it for those who haven't seen this abomination of a novel-made-movie.

Here is the list I lovingly made listing all the flaws (beware for extreme upper-case protests!):

  1. Poseidon: NO BERMUDA SHORTS OR HAWAIIAN SHIRT!
  2. Percy's mom: WHERE IS THE "AMERICA'S SWEET SHOP"?!
  3. Gabe: WHERE'S THE FAT, GREASY SLIMEBALL??!!
  4. Mrs. Dodds: "HONEY". WHERE IS THE FREAKING "HONEY"???!!!
  5. Percy's sword: IT WAS HANDED TO HIM BY CHIRON INSTEAD OF CHIRON THROWING THE DAMN THING TO PERCY TO KILL THE FURY MRS. DODDS!!
  6. NO TRIP TO THE BEACH CABIN! THEY JUST LEAVE!
  7. The Minotaur: WHERE IN THE NAME OF THE GREEK GODS ARE HIS FREAKING TIDY-WHITEYS?!
  8. The entrance to the camp: WHERE IS THE FREAKING APPLE FARM AND THE LONE PINE TREE OF THALIA???!!!
  9. The Minotaur's horn: PERCY DOESN'T JUST BREAK THE DAMN THING OFF! (I looked over it again and saw this as true to the book)
  10. The defeated Minotaur: WHY IN THE NAME OF ALL THINGS HOLY DIDN'T THE DAMN MONSTER TURN INTO DUST AFTER HE FRIGGING DIED????!!!!
  11. Camp Half-Blood: IT'S JUST A CAMP IN THE FREAKING WOODS OUT OF NYC, NOT A CAMP WITH A CLEARING AND A BEACH ON THE LONG ISLAND SOUND!
  12. Annabeth: SHE ISN'T BLOND!!!!!!!!!!!
  13. Chiron: HE HAS NO WHITE HORSE BODY! HE'S A BLEACHED BLOND, NOT A BRUNETTE, COLUMBUS! ARE YOU FREAKING COLORBLIND??!!
  14. THE CABINS AT THE CAMP AREN'T ALL TOGETHER AND IN A FREAKING SEMICIRCLE!
  15. How Percy finds out that he's the son of Poseidon: THERE IS NO GREEN FLOATING THINGY ABOVE HIS HEAD! CHIRON JUST TELLS HIM!!!
  16. WHERE IN THE NAME OF HELL IS LUKE'S SCAR???!!! (inflicted by Percy in the final showdown for the Lightning Bolt, WHICH IS STILL EFFING WRONG!!!!)
  17. WHERE IS CLARISSE??????????????????????????????!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  18. The river: THAT'S WHERE HE SHOULD HAVE BEEN MARKED BY HIS FATHER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  19. Hades: HE DOES NOT COME BARGING INTO THE CAMP IN THE FIRST BOOK!! WE DON'T EVEN MEET HIM UNTIL THE THIRD BOOK!!!!!!!!!!
  20. PERCY DOESN'T JUST LEAVE THE CAMP: CHIRON ORGANIZES THE TEAM TO GO WITH PERCY!!!
  21. WHERE IS THE MUMMY ORACLE?????????????????????????!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! IS IT TOO MUCH TO ASK HERE, PEOPLE??!!
  22. THERE ARE NO PERSEPHONE'S PEARLS IN ANY OF THE BOOKS!!
  23. THE PERSEPHONE'S PEARLS AREN'T THE REASON THEY GO TO AUNTY EM'S! THEY STUMBLE ON IT LIKE THEY ALWAYS DO IN THE BOOK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  24. Medusa: SHE'S SUPPOSED TO ALSO SERVE BURGERS AND WEAR A VEIL AND BE ALL OLD AND DECREPID!!!
  25. THEY DON'T EVER GO TO THE PARTHENON IN NASHVILLE IN ANY OF THE BOOKS!
  26. THEY DON'T CONFRONT THEY HYDRA UNTIL THE SECOND OR THIRD BOOK!
  27. NO IRIS-MESSAGING AT ALL!
  28. THEY HYDRA DOESN'T DIE BY GETTING THE MEDUSA VISION!!!
  29. The Lotus Hotel: THEY DON'T GO THERE UNTIL THE THIRD BOOK!!!!
  30. NO HOLLYWOOD UNTIL THE THIRD BOOK!!!
  31. THE ROUTE TO THE FREAKING UNDERWORLD IS NOT BEHIND THE HOLLYWOOD SIGN, IT'S UNDER THE RECORDING STUDIO IN HOLLYWOOD!!!!!
  32. PERSEPHONE IS NOT SUPPOSED TO BE SEDUCTIVE!!
  33. PERSEPHONE IS NOT SUPPOSED TO BE INTRODUCED UNTIL THE FOURTH OR FIFTH BOOK!
  34. LUKE ISN'T SUPPOSED TO BE FOUND OUT UNTIL THE END OF THE FIRST BOOK!
  35. NO GREAT HUGE SHOWDOWN BETWEEN LUKE AND PERCY IN NEW YORK CITY IN THE BOOKS AT EFFING ALL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  36. NO MORTAL OR DEMIGOD CAN HANDLE THE POWER OF THE MASTER BOLT! THEY'D DIE!
  37. WHERE IS THE GABE STATUE??!!!???!?!?!?!?!?!
So how many flaws were there in total: 37 34

Well, thanks for dealing with another one of my psychotic episodes, but Chris Columbus really screwed up. Since he did the first two Harry Potter so identical to what J.K. Rowling had in her books, I was extremely disappointed that he didn't get the Percy Jackson film right. You think I'm being a movie snob who says that every book being portrayed on the big screen has to be the original plotline, character study, etc.? Well, I don't: the Princess Diaries movies didn't go with the original plotline, setting, character identification, Grand-mere, but I was fine with it. It was actually kinda cute. But what really gets me about the Percy Jackson movie is Chris Columbus stating years earlier that he liked portraying the books as best he could. Go check it out if you don't believe me. Here's the link! Go buy it to see if I'm right!
Anyway, the reason I'm so royally cheesed off is because he broke his coda from the Harry Potter movies! He royally screwed up the first book and decided to make it his own little fanfic on what he wanted the books to go!

Or, at least, that's how I saw it....

Thanks again for sitting through another mental episode. I'll leave you questioning your sanity by watching Percy Jackson: The Lighting Thief. My advice:

DON'T!

<3, RS





Harry Potter is watching you, Mr. Columbus. He'll go all magic on your ass if you screw another series up, and his friends and the disappointed fans'll help scar you into oblivion. Be afraid................

Missing Puzzle Piece

A part of me is missing
A part of me is gone
It's been taken from me,
Stolen from me
Stolen by a magical man
Now a part of me is lost,
Tumbling around in the unknown
I'm stumbling around, numb,
Lost all feeling, all thought, all reason
One piece of the puzzle is gone,
Lost forever,
The puzzle incomplete
A story, gone
An experience, gone
A love for someone, gone
A part of my life, gone
I need to find my missing puzzle piece,
Before I stumble around forever,
A vegetable,
A zombie,
Before the rest of my life falls away in tiny pieces,
Scattered in an enormous box like scrambled puzzle pieces

Guess what? PONIES!!!! :D

I don't think I've talked about this before, but... I'm a brony (well, pegasister). Since I'm too lazy to completely explain it, I'll give you a short-hand definition for those who have no idea what a brony is: it's typically a 16-35 year old man and/or woman who devotes their lives to the show "My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic". If you haven't heard of it, check it out b/c it's TOTALLY A-MAY-ZAAAAAAH!

Sorry.....

Anyway, since I like MLP, I'm totally eager for this weekend because......

SEASON 3 IS PREMIERING AFTER MONTHS AND MONTHS OF WAITING! THANK CELESTIA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! /)^3^(\

Sorry again....

Anyway, I love the characters, I love the stories, I love the conflicts, I love the settings, I love the voice actors, I love the animation people, I love the fan peoples who create the fanfics and the musics and the cool arts, I JUST FRICKING LOVE EVERYBODY WHO IS FRICKING INVOLVED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Good God, I am so sorry you have to endure this...

Anyway, I've actually tried to write fanfics of the ponies as humans, but never ever finished (or started!) them because of my inability to commit to a project. Yes, I usually never finish anything, I admit it! But I've come up with pretty good ideas (I think) for fanfic ideas. I've tried nearly everything: origin stories of Celestia, Luna, Discord, and Chrysalis, re-creating the Nightmare Moon stories with MORE backstories, a bit of crossover stories, possessions with the Pinkie character (you brony fans know what I mean), shipping stories, historical adventures, etc. Just looking at all the attempts is startling to me. One of these days, I'll start AND finish one of these fics and share with the public, exposing my vulnerable MLP belly to the hater comments and the judgements of "WTF is wrong with you?", but at least I'll be proud that I finished something that I'll be (hopefully) proud of.

The reason I posted this was because of three four things:
  1. that I'm experiencing an adrenaline rush due to anticipation of a brand-new season
  2. that I'm looking forward to seeing what new fanfic ideas I can come up with
  3. that I'm fricking insane
  4. that I EFFING LOVE PONIES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! /)^3^(\

Thanks for enduring my psychopathic episode and I'll hope to see you guys soon if I haven't scared you off....

EQUESTRIA FOREVER!,
<3, RS (aka MidnightScribe)

P.S. Check out whatisabrony.com for an easier read on what a brony is. Join the herd, if you dare! :)

Happy Guy Fawkes Day (oh God, I am such a nerd)!!!!

So it's the famous "5th of November", aka Guy Fawkes Day in merry ol' Britland. Why do I care about it, you ask? Well,
  1. I'm a dork for England (even though I'm American)
  2. I'm a dork for England's history
  3. I'm a HUGE dork for "V for Vendetta"!
Yes, V for Vendetta. For those who don't know, it's a film starring British actors Hugo Weaving, Stephen Fry, John Hurt, and non-British actress Natalie Portman. She plays a London woman and does a pretty damn good job with the accent. Anyway, Hugo Weaving saves her and a chain of events leads back to some event back in the past that started all this in an "I'm-not-going-to-spoil-for-you-because-I-want-you-to-watch-it-so-WATCH-IT-NOW!!!!!!"

That went nowhere.....

Anyway, since it's "the 5th of November", I'm going to share with you the poem that got Hugo Weaving to be the next POTO, sans the singing. Here is the Guy Fawkes Poem and please, please, PLEASE watch V for Vendetta, and remember the 5th of November.

<3, RS

I DARE you to not read this poem in Hugo Weaving's voice! I DARE you!


Remember, remember, the 5th of November
The Gunpowder Treason and plot ;
I know of no reason why Gunpowder Treason
Should ever be forgot

Guy Fawkes, Guy Fawkes,
'Twas his intent.
To blow up the King and the Parliament.
Three score barrels of powder below.
Poor old England to overthrow.
By God's providence he was catch'd,
With a dark lantern and burning match

Holloa boys, Holloa boys, let the bells ring
Holloa boys, Holloa boys, God save the King!

Hip hip Hoorah !
Hip hip Hoorah !

A penny loaf to feed ol'Pope,
A farthing cheese to choke him.
A pint of beer to rinse it down,
A faggot of sticks to burn him.
Burn him in a tub of tar,'
Burn him like a blazing star.
Burn his body from his head,
Then we'll say: ol'Pope is dead
.

ZOMGBREAKTHROUGHWRITINGPROJECTIDEA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So, I'm signed up for NaNoWriMo (go here for more info) and since November's started, I need to start writing a 30,000 word story (aka 120 pages, not counting page breaks and all that wonderful crap) since the clock is ticking down to my probable imminent doom in writing. I was stressing out what to write about because the project I was working on is on hold until I can get my hands on Prince of Egypt. But now, I've gotten something! YAY!

What I'm thinking of doing is write a story about a girl and her psycho killer boyfriend who escapes from jail/mass holding compound to find her for something she did/"made him do" before he got sent to jail/mass holding compound. I think I've even got the names for the girl and the psycho: Nicki and Kristopher.

I STILL HAVE NO EFFING IDEA HOW I'M GOING TO WRITE 120 PAGES OF THIS ISH WHEN I USUALLY WRITE 10 PAGES THEN STOP!!! I'M SO SCREWED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Anyway, I needed to get that out there because I had a huge adrenhaline rush and had nothing else to do with it except write this post and find ground points in which to start the damn thing! I NEED TO WRITE THIS NOW!

Halloween Wishes and Other Ish


"Le meow! Le hiss hiss!"

Happy Halloween/All Hallow's Eve/Dia de los Muertos/Hallowe'en/Hallow-mas/what-have-you! I bring you tidings of great fear and paranoia on this special holiday! There will be no surviving this post once I'm through with you! (cue evil laughing and evil lightning/thunder)
Anyway, I wanted to help celebrate this holiday by sharing a poem with you....

IN FRENCH!!!


Anyway, here is "Danse Macabre" by Henri Cazalis. Feel free to translate this in some online translator.

Happy Hallow'een to all and to all a good fright!
<3, RS
(cue evil laugh and evil thunder/lightning)


Zig et zig et zig, la mort en cadence
Frappant une tombe avec son talon,
La mort à minuit joue un air de danse
Zig et zig et zag sur son violon.
Le vent d'hiver souffle et la nuit et sombre;
Les gémissements sortent des tilleuls;
Les squelettes blancs vont à travers l'ombre,
Courant et sautant sous leurs grands linceuls
Zig et zig et zig, chacun se trémousse.
On entend claquer les os des danseurs;
Un couple lassif s'asseoit sur la mousse,
Comme pour goûter d'anciennes douceurs.
Zig et zig et zag; la mort continue
De racler sans fin son aigre instrument
Un voile est tombé! La danseuse est nue
Son danseur la serre amoureusement.
La dame est dit-on marquise ou baronne
Et le vert gallant un pauvre charron;
Horreur et voilà qu'elles s'abandonne
Comme si le rustre était un baron.
Zig et zig et zig, quelle sarabande!
Quels cercles de morts se donnant la main!
ZIg et zig et zag, on voit dans la bande
Le roi gambader auprès du villain
Mais psit! tout à coup on quitte la ronde,
On se pousse, on fuit, le coq a chanté.
Oh la belle nuit pour le pauvre monde.
Et vivent la mort et l'égalité!

The Rain and the Leaves

Splish, splash,
The rain falls to the ground
Splish, splash,
A child runs through the puddles with joy
Splish, splash,
Rain turns golden leaves with a pleasant shine,
A crisp smell,
A smell of jumping in leaf piles,
Being encased by hundreds of these same leaves
Splish, splash,
Sitting inside your warm house,
A cup of hot cocoa in your hand,
Warming your frozen fingertips,
Remembering the splendid simplicity of rain,
The smell of autumn leaves,
The pleasures of coming inside from a day outdoors,
Soaked to the bone,
Receiving a cup of Mother's hot chocolate,
And drying off in front of the welcoming fire,
Remembering how your heart soared as you took in the wonderful sense,
Of the rain and the leaves

<3, RS

okay, you guys really need to send something in...

I'm tired of feeling like I'm the only one that contributes to "Creative Voices and Other Nonsense", so I'm forcing you viewers to write something and send it in. So what I'll do is post a picture and tell you guys to write about whatever comes to mind and send it in when you're finished (see this page for rules). Hopefully I can share whatever you came up in the next week after the prompt (more or less, depending if you submit anything).

The Five Kitties of the Apocalypse =^.^=

THE KITTIES ARE OFFICIALLY HERE! There are five of them: 4 kittens and 1 mama. The two orange kitties are named Fred and George, the black and gray kitties are Harry and Hermione, and Mama's named Skeeter. They're all tabby cats and so soft! The way we can tell the kittens apart are that Fred is a lot more orange and stripey than George (his fur is more like a dulled orange/white), and Harry has longer fur than Hermione (although sometimes I can't tell them apart! 0_0). Skeeter is long and lean with small feet, like an Ancient Egyptian cat. She even gives me the Egyptian Evil Eye sometimes as I call for her like Romeo did for Juliet (ya know, before they kinda died...). Anyway, her fur is a lot like Hermione's, except Skeeter's fur has some caramel-brown hairs mixed around. It's really pretty and I want to pet it constantly, but she's really shy. I did manage to pet her more than usual today, and I got her to purr. Yes!

The kittens are really hyper once they're awake and they've had some food. One minute, they're stumbling around, still sleepy, the next, they're tearing around the room like furry missiles armed with claws that are quite sharp! They fight with each other and wrestle and go nuts with a toy. Meanwhile, Skeeter's up high where she can't deal with any of her overactive children. Her eyes say it all: "God, these kids are so annoying! I wish they'd all just calm the frick down." You can't go five minutes without somekitty wrestling a sibling! It's mostly Fred or George wrestling/fighting with Hermione. Occasionally, I hear exasperated kitten mews of slight pain and aggravation. I've even seen Hermione go for her bro's baby testicles. 0___0

.........................................................................

ENOUGH AWKWARDNESS!!!

Anyway, once they spent their energy, they start to slow down, lie down somewhere, curl up, and fall asleep. Harry's usually the first one to take a nap and I'm there by his side, petting him until his eyes are shut (SO CUTE!). Fred usually the last one to settle down and take a nap. I keep asking him (even though I know cats can't talk) "Aren't you sleepy yet?" when all his other siblings have cuddled together in a nap huddle. Today, they were all napping in a large plastic tub together.
/)^3^(\ I managed to lull Fred to sleep yesterday, and I got him to purr. Even after his eyes closed, his purring was still constant. It was the cutest thing EVER! I managed to pull it off with George too.

I love it when kitties are sleepy. That's the best time to cuddle with them! <3

Anyway, that's all I have for you right now. I'll keep posting kitty updates for those who care about this kind of thing. For those who don't, TOO BAD!!!! >.<

May your days and nights be occupied with cat-related paraphernalia (don't think it's the right word in this situation, but who cares?)!! =^.^=

The Energy-Sucker That Is Called Boredom

I've been trying to put off posting this, but it'll get out somehow....

I'M BORED AND UN-INTERESTED.


It feels gross and I don't like it all that much. But the cats do help and the fact that I have to read the Bible (not completely, I lied). I try to write stuff, but it comes out like a newborn baby's feces (yes, I made potty humor. Even I am an immature child!), and it smells like it too. It makes me feel like a "worthless" writer when I try to desperately write something amazing only to have it suck like yesterday's garbage: I feel like a writer whose work is a pile of dog crap but gets published anyway, hoping to get some money in and be as popular as Stephenie Meyer or J.K. Rowling (which, I'm sorry to say (not really), they won't).

Anyway, I've been trying to write more of that Exodus-redeux thing, blah, blah, blah, but work, kitties, and my severe addiction to the Internet have gotten in the way. Plus my need for sleep. Now I've been getting headaches in the middle of the day that are ruining my thought process for any...... thing..... GRR! >:(

Don't worry. I'll post some more creative stuff soon, as well as posts on the kitties.

Hope I haven't depressed your day! Sorry if I have or made you really confused. Hope you can forgive me!

Bible Reading: Day 12

Well, I've finished the Pentateuch in about a week. That deverves some kind of accomplishment right there. Something to the lines of "Biblical Llama of Pentateuch Epicness Badge: for completing the first section of the Bible. Good job, now eat some delicious and magical cake made by epic llama fairies of magicalness".

Sorry. I kind of like the idea of llamas....

Anyway, I've been breezing through the various sections of the Historical Books, so much that I finished the Book of Joshua in less than a day. Now I'm halfway through the Book of Judges, which is, as explained in my copy of the Bible, "Israel's teenage years". <shudder>

So, I'm going to explain the Books of Numbers through Joshua in very brief summaries so people can follow without losing interest:

  • NUMBERS:
    • The Israelites go conquer cities and celebrate over it. God keeps telling Moses what to do
  • DEUTERONOMY:
    • Moses shares to the Israelites what God's been telling him for the past two to four books. At the end, Moses dies and Joshua takes over
  • JOSHUA:
    • He leads the Israelites over the Jordan River and lets them conquer many cites and rejoice in the name of the Lord

Well, I've got nothing else to say. I hope this has somehow enlightened you day...

Musical Inspiration

So, yesterday I was just wishing away the time online because I had "nothing better to do", and I stumbled upon this video (click plz!), and it made my mind flourish in a creative explosion (not to mention it's freaking AMAZING!). Since I had the idea for the distopic-ish, Hebrew apocalypse-ish, yadda, yadda, yadda, I haven't had a clue on what more to do with it. I'd written some stuff here and there, but I haven't had any solid idea on where they are, who the main antagonist is, what the Hebrew people are going to be forced to do, and if there's going to be an actual war yet. But this video helped me get a hold on some of the unknown questions. With help from various sources on the Internet, I have come up with an applicable characters and (somewhat) story line for the lyrics to this video (you're going to have to click on it eventually...):

Evil Antagonist that-yet-needs-to-be-named:
What cause have I to feel glad?
I've built my life on judgement and causing pain
I don't know those eyes I see in the bloodstained chrome

Sarai:
Now everything that I've had and everything I've known have been thrown away
And with time I've come to find this isn't my home

Abram, Sarai, Evil Antagonist:
I've stoked the fire,
seen more pain that you can know
The tears of the broken have washed away my soul
Pushed by desire to change the way my stream will flow,
now I've awoken,
and I'm taking back control

Sarai:
I tried my best to block out the screams,
but they're haunting me in my dreams
Please break my shackles,
I want it to stop

Abram:
I man these wretched machines
Day in, day out, the grinding wears on my brain
Undermining my sanity,
making me question my reality

Sarai:
But life is not as it seems
Should I take a chance of freedom and throw it all down the drain?
I've been imprisoned!
Please burn my transgressions away.

Abram, Sarai, Evil Antagonist:
I've stoked the fire,
seen more pain that you can know
The tears of the broken have washed away my soul
Pushed by desire to change the way my stream will flow,
now I've awoken,
and I'm taking back control

Sarai:
I tried my best to block out the screams,
but they're haunting me in my dreams
Please break my shackles,
I want it to stop

<electronic solo> (probably some cool fighting montage)

Abram, Sarai:
I've stoked the fire, seen more pain that you can know
The tears of the broken have washed away my soul
Pushed by desire to change the way my stream will flow,
now I've awoken,
and I'm taking back control

Abram:
I'm sick of hurting,
sick of thinking it's all I do

Evil Antagonist:
I break those around me,
those spared are very few

Abram/Sarai:
But the bright sun is burning,
and my sky shines ever blue
Friendships surround me,
I'm becoming a part of you

Sarai:
I tried my best to block out the screams,
but they're haunting me in my dreams
Please break my shackles,
I want it to stop.

*As a side note, Sarai and Abram (aka Sarah and Abraham in the Old Testament, no corralations here) are the main characters of this story and the Evil Antagonist is the oppressor of the Hebrew people in the future. I think there's going to be a factory where Hebrew "slaves" are suffering and Sarai gets put into one of these places for disobeying a law or something. Abram also gets to work in one of these places too. Like I said, these aren't my final plans yet: I'm still a bit murky on the whole concept right now. This was just a way to organize my thoughts and future plans for now*

Anyway, I'll leave you to the rest of your lives (for now). As always, keep being inspired and music is the best remedy for stress.

Bible Reading: Day 6

I managed to read all of Leviticus two nights ago. Thank God that's over! Well, I was right: it was mostly God telling Moses what to do and where to place things to make them holy and other stuff like that. The only thing that I found interesting was the fact that Aaron's sons got annihilated when they were performing an unauthroized offering to God. Now, in modern perspectives, the rest part of the Bible is just filler, or fluff as my friend likes to call it. Now I'm about halfway through the Book of Numbers, which, again, is more filler. It's supposed to be about Moses calling every available tribe in the surrounding area (did I get that right, faithful religious viewers?). I should get it done by tomorrow or the next day, then I'll be one book closer to finishing the Pentateuch! For those who have no idea what the Pentateuch is, it's the first five books of the Bible. Fun fact: the Pentateuch, otherwise known as the Torah, means "the Law", which explains all the "boring filler" about God telling Moses what to do. The next book after the Pentateuch is the Historical Books, which go more into historical accounts of people after the time of Moses.

Anyway, I thought you'd like to know my progress. If not, too bad. ;)

Testing, Testing, 1, 2, 3....

Please review the older posts so that I know that the Internet Is screwing around with me and trying to make my life a living hell.

UPDATE 10:38 PM: IT'S BACK TO NORMAL!!! :)

KITTIESKITTIESKITTIESKITTIESOMGZ!!!!!!!!! =^.^=

I don't know if I've mentioned this before, but I <3 CATS OF ALL SHAPES AND SIZES! =^.^= I would give anything to actually own another cat of my own. I've gone without a cat for long that I've developed a certain longing to squeeze one and cuddle it to death (not litterally. Geddit? LITTER-ally? HA! ....sorry you had to endure that)!! I've also developed the awesome power of "speaking to cats" i.e. imitating a cat's meow like a total creep/loser. You see, I once had a cat (code name: KITT-3) long ago, but she was put down at sixteen for yowling at random points in time. I never really had a chance to say good-bye and I was really depressed for weeks, laying down in my parent's comfy bed and watching any TV programs limited cable could offer. Anyway, the moral of this story is that I soon discovered my obsession with cats years after KITT-3 died. For years, I've been longing for other kitties to fill my Happy-Kitty-Meter to Over 9000. ;)

Anyway, the reason I'm writing this is because I have some important news for you guys who probably don't give a flying-crap about cats (you sick, cute-hating sadists!)....:

I'M GOING TO BE FOSTERING KITTIES IN THE VERY NEAR FUTURE!!!! :DDDD =^.^=


I don't care if you guys don't care about cats or my "useless" postings: I'm going to post my kitty adventures anyway! I hope to get kitties soon, so watch out because your lives are going to become pointless and agonizing with my overly-constant postings of kitty progress, like (10/20/12 9 AM: FLUFFLES JUST ROLLED OVER! SO QTE! <3, 10/20/12 9:15 AM: SIR PURRS AND MR. CUTEY-PATOOTEY ARE SLEEPING LIKE ANGELS!!!1! GAAAAAAH! /)^3^(\, 10/20/12 9:20 AM: MISS KITTY MCFLUFFLEBUTT IS PURRING BECAUSE I'M PETTING HER!!!! NYYYYYYAAAAAAAAAAA!!!! HEART=EXPLODED FROM TEH QTENESS!!!! <3 <3 <3 <3) etc., etc.
Anyway, I'll leave you contemplating your futures of following this blog. 0_0

Purringly yours =^.^=,
<3, RS

P.S. I'll upload some creative stuff soon. I just need to find them and brighten your lives with my creative awesomeness! ;)

You Having to Listen to Me Rave about "Wicked"

My fellow nerds, geeks, and dorks alike. I saw the Broadway hit "Wicked" today....
And it really wasn't any good.
....................................................

I'M JUST KIDDING! IT WAS FREAKING AMAZING!!!!!!! <l :^)


Anyway, I thought the performance in Seattle was completely AMAZING! At the very end, when everyone was cheering the hell out of the theater, I was all like:
"OMGTHISWASSOFREAKINGCOOLWHYISITOVERIWANTMORETHISWASONEOFTHEBESTESTDAYSOFMYLIFE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!", not to mention that my hands were numb afterward from clapping so hard. I almost cried during the touching parts of the play. It also made me want to write fanfics about the world of Oz. FANFIC WORLD, AWAY!!

All I'm saying is those who are in the Seattle area, go see it or your life will go unfulfilled.

I dare you guys to defy gravity in your and others' lives.

Bible Reading: Day 3

So, I've read Exodus in one day! (sort of.... I finished it around 12 am this morning... :-}). Anyway, I'm on Leviticus, which is a repeat of God telling Moses how to do things to serve the lord and make things holy, blah, blah, blah. All that concerns me is that it's going to be BORING! But I'll muddle through it because I need to win the bet! Hopefully, after this, it won't be as boring for a while. Right?!

Anyway, that's it for now. Now, I'll leave you to do what you will with your lives....

HAHA! JUST KIDDING!!!! I'LL STILL BE HERE FOR THE REST OF YOUR SANE LIVES!! BUA-HAHAHAHAHAHAH!!!!!! 8^D


Insanely,
