Closing in on 2009

Sing Me A Song Sunday
"Little Wonders" by Rob Thomas
This song is on the soundtrack for Meet The Robinsons, which is where I first heard it. I didn't see the movie in theatres, I think I was still in Oregon when my dad and sister went. But I saw it a few months ago on tv, then again just a few days ago. It's a nice song that's basically about taking in all the little things that happen everyday and appreciating it all. I think, personally, I need to seriously try to readjust my lifestyle this coming year. It's difficult though, just because of the environment I'm in and the people I'm around at home. But I have to make even more of an effort than last year, because I do not want a repeat of 2009. So, hopefully, my 2010 will be filled with many little wonders, as will all of yours. :]

Speaking of the new year...let's actually rewind on the past decade. I just saw on Reelz a commercial about this special they're having. Something like "the best movies of the decade" that they'll be showing in the next few days. Movies that I predict will be on the list? Here are a few:
+Lord of the Rings triology
+Harry Potter series
+Milk
+Batman: Dark Knight
+Pan's Labyrinth
+No Country For Old Men (even though I turned that movie off 20 minutes in. I just wasn't into it. Sorry. Bree, Kailey and Amelia were all over me because of it; I just couldn't sit through it.)
+Hotel Rwanda
+Slumdog Millionaire
+The Departed
+There Will Be Blood
+Letters From Iwo Jima
+Little Miss Sunshine
+Wall-E
+At least one Bourne movie
+Finding Nemo
+Up
+Sin City
+Whale Rider
+History of Violence
+Juno

...and a whole bunch more that I can't think of on the spot right now. Hopefully I remember to watch it, whenever it's on.

I had lots of aspirations for 2010. I suppose I can still have them, minus the ones I had as far as school goes. Taking ONE fucking class isn't exactly what I had in mind a few months ago. But, shit happens and we have to deal with it. I can aspire to find a new and better job with a more positive working environment. I honestly, seriously believe that will be really good for me, something I need right now.

Dude. Ten years ago I was in the fifth grade. Man, thinking about that is so surreal. It totally blows my mind how fast time goes by and that I actually get nostalgic at my age. Haha, it's funny most of the time. It's also kinda ridiculous because I have such a good people-memory. I remember some really specific things about my friends, or events we had at school. So for me to think back on something that was really important to me or stood out in my memory is kind of a trip. I wonder if this kind of memory is a curse of a blessing.

Here's some of my favorites from PostSecret today:


Because I'm nostalgic and miss high school. It was shitty at the time, but I realized now once I'm out of it that I had it good there.


I am such a phone bitch. :P But this past week TC, Amanda and Kuni have decided I'm not necessarily a phone bitch, but a PURPLE bitch. Which is incredibly true. :) Although I still think I'm a phone bitch.


This is just hilarious. And not that holy at all.

I watched Lords of Dogtown today all the way through for the first time. Haha. I really don't know why I'd never seen it all at once before. I think I just caught snippets here and there, and saw other parts on YouTube. But since I bought it, I can watch it whenever I want...which will be all the time! I fucking love Emile Hirsch, have I mentioned that before? I think I have. It's interesting because he does a lot of movies that are based off of true stories. Three come to me off the top of my head: Lords of Dogtown, Into The Wild, and Alpha Dog. He's really talented for a 24-year-old.

He also might be in the upcoming movie Hamlet. It's interesting because it's by the same director that directed Dogtown, Catherine Hardwicke. Which, kinda bugged me when I found out, was the same woman who directed Twilight. *major twitch* Ugh. But, she did a really good job with Dogtown. And I've read and watched interviews saying that she's a pretty intense method director. She gets into it just like the actors, which I think is beneficial for everyone working on the project.

OH!!! I almost forgot to mention! TWO of my FAVORITE ACTORS will be in an upcoming movie together!!! LEONARDO DiCAPRIO and JOSEPH GORDON-LEVITT will be in the movie, Inception due for a release on July 16, 2010!!! I'm so fucking stoked. I heard about this movie over the summer and finally, I know a release date. Chyeah! Haha. Here's the trailer if you haven't seen it:



Leo's character is a CEO guy who gets involved in some kind of blackmail scheme, then all these crazy things happen within his mind. It's pretty trippy. Heavy on the science fiction and thriller aspect. Ken Watanabe, Ellen Page, Michael Caine, and Lukas Haas are also in the film. Interesting casting fact: James Franco was originally cast as JGL's part but pulled out due to scheduling conflicts. Personally, I'm rather satisfied with JGL taking over the role. ;)

Also, I hope the new Clash of the Titans will be decent. I LOVE the old '81 version. This new one better do it justice.

Song of the day: "Just My Imagination" by The Temptations

ZAIDA!!!!!

i have been away from blogspot too long. I'm such a douche! I'm totally excited for the new Clash of the Titans movie. The old one is so deliciously cheesy!! I used to watch it all the time. right now I'm also really excited to see Nine (the musical) and Sherlock Holmes. And now i will read the rest of your entries that i've missed!

I love Rob Thomas!

That Reelz thing sounds awesome. I wish I could watch it all. A lot of the movies you listed are awesome movies. Some of them I haven't seen.

I can understand why you turned off No Country. But I'm a fan of the movie, I really like it and I don't even like Cormac McCarthy. I like it because Javier Bardem's character is super badass, they should make a movie just about that character.

That was one of my favorites from PostSecret too, the high school one. There was another one I really liked, but I can't remember it off hand.

Emile Hirsch is one of my favorites too. I love how he can convincingly play so many different characters. When he came on screen in Milk, I hardly knew it was him!

I think I mentioned being excited about that Hamlet movie a while back. Hamlet is my favorite Shakespeare play, so I'll be happy if he plays Hamlet. I think I read somewhere that he suggested it to Catherine Hardwicke, so hopefully that means there's a high chance he'll do it.

Haha, don't feel like a dipshit. It's taken me a while to figure it out and even after I figured it out, it's still really hard to remember. It's so easy to be angry, so it's a hard habit to break. It's also super easy to be annoyed with family and hate that there is any part of them within you. But even though you share that, you're still your own person.
