Essay Music.

Right now I'm listening to Lynyrd Skynyrd's free bird really loudly as I write my Alice in wonderland essay draft one. Last weekend if you've read Rexin's blog you'll know he came out for my dad's rugby team this weekend. By the way Rexin you'll probably get a half in next game. Went to the club house afterwards and by club house I mean "the office" bar in maple ridge. Which is quickly becoming my favorite bar to go to. After Rexin left I consumed 11 rum and cokes and paid for about half. Other than that there's not a lot going on. Essays and presentations coming up. Going back to work this Sunday. Which means I'll be spending the majority of the rest of my time on essays. The fun never ceases.

Okay. Well not much to update about. Got the work situation sorta resolved. Im a little hesitant to say anything though. Then again that hasn't stopped me in the past. What else? V for Vendetta is coming out soon, looks good, I bought the TPB last week and plan on finishing it by the weekend.
Also bought an awesome Wolverine Bust today. Well, I had ordered it awhile ago but it finally came in, so yeah that's good. I'll post pics of it soon, well maybe, we'll see.
Other than that I don't really have anything to say. Got papers coming up that I got to start on, got a presentation (ugh) that im not looking forward to. Maybe I'll do some shots before hand, take the edge off. Oh, and yeah the oscars are coming up I guess. I'll watch some of it, but only because of Stewarts involvement. Honestly I don't really care about any of the movies nominated. Although Capote was good. I guess I'll end my post with some predictions on it. So here goes.

Best Actor-Philip Seymour Hoffman; Best Supporting Actor-Jake Gyllenhaal (i hope to god its not clooney) Best Actress-Resse Witherspoon; Best Supporting Actress-Rachel Weisz; Best Animated Film-Tim Burtons Corspe Bride; Director-Ang Lee; Best Picture-Brokeback Mountain (like it to be Capote); Original Screenplay-Woody Alan

I left Some of the other categories out cause I simply don't care one way or another. Anyway that's it, Im out.

Make Your Own Title

Just got back from seeing Capote. It was really good, I'll be surprised if he doesn't win the Oscar for it. It should be noted that im basing that solely on his performance as I haven't seen any of the other nominated movies. Nor do I really intend to I guess.
However, the movie did have some unsettling points in it. I dunno, maybe im just getting old and I cant handle things the way I used to. I wouldn't say that there was anything to extreme in the film. It was just very uneasy.
At any rate In Cold Blood has now been added to the reading list, for the summer of 2006. This list keeps growing and doesn't look to be stopping anytime soon. Its going to be a lot of reading and hopefully some writing this summer but im not holding my breathe for the latter. Well that's all for now.

hurrah to you

okay. so i kinda sorta shouldnt be operating heavy machinery at this point. However. That being said some things are bothering me that i feel the need to exprese about with expressing. One bother is work. I need a new job. I hate my job. My job really sucks and so forth with how that goes. Second problem is a little bit more delicate so with the current state of things im going to avoid all together issue that is at hand. hands touching hands reaching out touching me touching you........k what now? I wonder if im sober enought to read shakespeare and have it make any sense. Not that it does at the best of times.
I mean i've enjoyed Hamlet again emensley its one of my favorite plays of all time, and the level of complexity it has, even i was unaware of its greatness. Ive even enjoyed Othello, and i find it to be outstanding as well. Im sure Ill like king lear as well, however Twelth Night was sorta lost on me.
I just dont get the whole elizabethan cross dressing obsession. Why is it that females dressing as men is funny to these people? I 've never seen a woman in drag and thought hell thats some funny ass shit. Infact come to think of it, ive never seen a woman in drag period. I've seen some other bizzare shit (earth science for excample). Weird shit there. God i cant type tonight. my skill level is subpar even for me. All for the best though as im running out of things to bitch about. Id go on about the muchmusic vj search but no one would care. Infact I dont care. Part of the reason im pissed off about it. Its like they took every personality that i hate and threw them into one show with a c list judge panel. Honestly why is robin black or whatever his name is in there? I can sorta understand Kardinal or whoever being there but the rest. Oh hell why am i even talking about this. Screw it, im going to go listen to some music that will probably never get played on much music and read some comics that will definatly never get played on much music cause that would just be weird.

hooray for my day off.

Alright. Well first off, its pretty much official that come July I'll be back in SD (san diego) for at least a week. Hobnobbing with the rich and comic elite alike. I know, I know, im a nerd, whatever. Should be good fun at any rate, plus im looking forward to getting out of this province and into some sun. Speaking of comics, I know I have shown some people this, but this is so very, very odd to me that I have to let the rest of the world know it exists, and by it I mean this and this. See what I mean about it being odd, its very surreal.
Speaking of surreal. The semesters half over already. Or at least very close to it. With that being said, I look to have some time on my hands, with reading break and such. A whole five days to actually catch up and do a presentation. Since my work apparently doesn't want any of my time, I figure I might as well put it back into school. Of course though, Im thinking of doing other things. This time however it doesn't include loosing 70 bucks at the casino.

reading break.

So reading break looks like its coming up. I figure I could do one of three things. 1) I could devote some actual time to school work and catch up 2) drink myself stupid till Tuesday 3) find something else to do with my time, you know, I don't go to enough plays or the theatre in general.

Quick...to the Periodicals!

Where does one find information on Shakespeare adaptations? Or more specifically where does one find information on Shakespeare and image. Fuck it, anyone want to do my research for my presentation. I really don't want to do this presentation. Not because I hate being put on the spot, but also I have no desire to talk about that stupid article.
Is it just me or has the daily shows caliber of guests increased ten fold. The last two times I had time to watch the show, Stewart has had Anthony Hopkins, and Harrison Ford on. Maybe its just me, but Harrison Ford seems way to big for the Daily show, so does Hopkins. I mean its Han fucking Solo. I can see the Daily Show getting someone more like Billy Dee Williams. Incidentally Billy Dee Williams was on Scrubs.
Alright enough of this rambling. Hey anyone know what happened in the Grammy's, I feel asleep before it started. Not that I was going to watch it. The last thing I remember was entertainment tonight was complaining about Britney Spears not buckling her kid in his car seat. And I ask you, why do we care?
celebrities really piss me off sometimes. Not to mention those VJ contestants, what a great idea that was.

Internet boredom

I dunno about anyone else but I thought this was pretty damn funny. Im also finally beginning to understand the brilliance of google video. Not to mention stupid people.

The aftermath

So I woke up this morning feeling fine, till I realized that im now out roughly $120-$130 bucks from last night. How did this happen? I gotta start finding a beer that doesn't taste like shit so I can spend less money. Maybe I just gotta spend less money in general. Oh well. Vikram your birthdays are always the best. Why haven't we done that every year? Well I'll send you that pic sometime later too. That's good stuff. For now though Im going to go read.
