The rants and raves of a teenage cinephile who is just a little bit obsessed with Catherine O'Hara and Hayao Miyazaki.

These things never get old.

Leo is very disappointed in you, Mr. Murphey


Anyway I am still alive, I promise you. I feel like the past five posts I've done have been me being all like "I'm not dead! I promise I'll post more! I swear!" So, I truly do apologize. But this cloud does have a silver lining - I turned in all my college apps today, so yay! We all have to go through it and I'm finally done. And I went to the movies a lot this past week so I've become inspired to do some writing. So hold on ya'll because I'm coming back with a vengeance.


Sunday, November 14, 2010's my birthday!

Hahahaha! Not to be like, self advertising myself or anything. But, yeah! I'm the big 18 now. Officially an adult. So, yay! I unfortunately don't share a bday with any big movie-related people. Though evidently I do have the same birthday as Claude Monet (one of my favorite artists), Aaron Copland (one of my favorite composers) and...Condoleeza Rice! Very cool stuff. I think I shall celebrate by buying Scott Pilgrim Vs The World on DVD. :P

Aw, Glee!

I just want to take a few moments to talk about how proud I am of Glee after last night's episode! I haven't blogged about this season at all yet, mainly because I've neither hated it enough to rant (like last season...hehe), nor have I loved it enough to rave. I've never loved Glee enough to rave, until today!

Yep, last night's episode was really, dare I say it, great! I've been kind of bored with Glee lately but after last night, I have hope for its future. It was just a really solid episode - the songs were flawlessly incorporated into the narrative, and all of the little subplots were balanced super well; both issues that former episodes have had. We even got a nice dose of Jane Lynch, and Chris Colfer, who's been a bit one-note as of late, really did some great things with his rather dynamic subplot.

So, props! The only bad thing was that I thought Gwyneth Paltrow was supposed to be on last night, so I kept waiting for her to show up and she never did. Then I found out that she's not on 'til next week. Alas! Just something more to look forward to.

So what did you all think of last night's episode? I'm really impressed. A golf clap for Glee. Hehe.

Can you believe that I'm not ranting...awww!

Song of the Day, featuring Carey Mulligan!

Have you guys heard Belle and Sebastian's new album, "Write About Love"? I've been listening to a few tracks from it constantly, and one of them is the uber catchy title song, which actually features the amazing Carey Mulligan...SINGING! Yeah!

So the song is just awesome. Belle and Sebastian are a fantastic band, and I mean, Carey Mulligan. Everybody loves Carey Mulligan. :) And she can sing! Don't you love it when you find out that your favorite actors can sing? She should be in a musical. Yes.

Awwwww! I mean seriously. Who can resist this adorableness!

Here's the song for your listening pleasure...

I'm Still Alive! Yay! (Randomness Ensues)

Hello everyone! I'm back. And still stressed, but mildly less so. Haha. My recital went very well, and thanks to all of you who looked at my website and left kind comments on my last post! It was so nice of youuu. :)

so I have a few items to discuss in this post, for which I will use the extremely organized bulletpoint format. Woohoo!

  • You should check out the Vegetarian/Vegan Movie Characters page if you haven't in a while - there are a lot of new additions since I keep thinking of/seeing more and more!
  • I saw "Please Give" and kind of loved it. Random. But yes. And now we're just two people holding shit in bags!
  • Besides that, I'm horribly behind in seeing movies that are coming out that I want to see. Oh the difficulties of being busy! Grrr. Have ya'll seen any good ones lately? Speak up below.
  • Ummm...Modern Family was awesome this past week? Funny, and grrrreat character development. Ty Burrell really was fantastic in particular.
  • Okay...guilty pleasure alert...14 DAYS TIL KE$HA'S NEW ALBUM. *Ahem* um, yikes, everyone's looking at me weird...uh...i like Beethoven? Yeah. Haha.
I think that's it. I feel like there was more I wanted to say...but...i'm sorry. I'm so incoherent. This doesn't even count as an excuse for a blog post. I promise I'll start actually making an effort soon. Please don't hate me! Eek!
