Friday, 30 January 2009 votre pantalon, s'il vous plait.

bout to dash off for dinner but thought id ramble on about the history boys for a bit. because i love the history boys and i love to ramble. dinner is going to be raita and bhujia and the rice i made for the sounds of some of the soundtrack of the history boys. i swear i would watch it on loop endlessly if i could. except that would make me so edgy. the history boys = 1 can of red bull. i want to jump about and sing and dance and act and pretend and dress up and visit abbeys and all things now im watching random behind the scenes type vids on the site o the movie. genius!

top 5 scenes:
1. the whole french bit XD
2. posner [*sigh* the eyes!] and hector and the poem.
3. irwin's face [the eyes again...someone knew how to cast!] when dakin says they should have a 'drink'...especially when he says he looks fwd to him taking his glasses off...
4. rudge telling her how he got in...
5. all of them singing bye bye blackbird...the expressions are just perfect.

*sobs* that i'll probably never get to see it on stage.
not with the same exact cast anyway...

ps. it kills me to leave all the singing and the brief encounter stuff and everything off the top 5...that could be another top five unto itself ;)

pps. history boys fanfics!

why there is a dead pakistani on my couch?

im listening to the lost initiative podcast [its a vid podcast now, but i prefer it audio, so just not watching it :)] and the best part is i feel geekier than them cause i thought of things before they did :D good to know everyone is confused tho! still havent watched episode 3 so not fully caught up...i will just die if i get spoilered...who goes looking for spoilers? geeky tom off the podcast does! why? why? oright so i dont feel evil enuf to post spoilers. so all i will say is practically everyone who could have been in the first 2 epis, have been in the first 2 epis. i await the reappearance of everyone else. :D season 5 - so so good.

....and the competition for who is the coolest, heats up! my current list:

1. Richard Alpert
solely because of his glasses and this one quote [and yes i do know that's 2 things]
Locke: What is this?
Richard: A compass.
Locke: What does it do?
Richard: It points north, John.
2. Benjamin Linus
3. Sayid Jarrah
4. Hurley
[if you've watched episode 2, you'll know what i'm talking about]
5. John Locke/Desmond David Hume

the weirdest thing happened today...or actually i should start with the backstory. i was in this cute second hand book store called blossoms and i saw this poster saying:
freelance illustrators wanted for childrens book illustration email: and so obv i did.

and then i got a reply from someone saying:

I was looking at your e-mail and I
think that we need to chat. Take a look
at my picture and reply to me so I could
give you more pics and info

so yeah my mind immediately jumped to the conclusion that it was in response to my illustration email. and they wanted to send me pics about the story im all yeah looking fwd to it.
and today i got an email which made it very obvious that the mail was the complete and total opposite of what i thought it was...

gmail has lost its mind!

first off it's not even adressed to me, but to someone with a very similar email id.
a small excerpt:

Hi my new friend
Im glad to see that you have decided to reply,I see it is very short letter. It is all right because you are astonished to get my letter. I want you to know that I have only good intentions and I have not any secrets. The thing is that I will work in your country for three months or so and I would like to meet a nice man to fall in love or just be closest friends...

Paul Avery: Okay, this can no longer be ignored. [points at Graysmith's drink, which is blue. Graysmith looks confused] What is that?

just watched zodiac again (on tv this time, it is truly worth watching on the big screen tho) forgotten how down right scary it is...all the not knowing who the zodiac is...and ppl just wandering off to meet with suspects...all of whom could potentially slash em up whenever...ergh...thank the lord i had chicken soup left (which i am consuming now, with rice and veg). comfort food is needed. wil load house now, for to watch.

also thank goodness i missed the bit in the movie where they consume the yummy looking big blue drink. aqua velva i think its called...

what timeline do you think we're living in?

people who actually read this blog are going to experience deja vu right about now..

I heart geek podcasts!

im listening to the overthinkingit podcast and it is good. this one's about back to the future (it's bttf week) and time travel and somehow they manage to go from there to casablanca to starship troopers (which, note to self: i need to watch again! for i totally watched it as a babe and missed the NPH love in my youthful obliviousness) with periodic bouts of giggling. just the best upper one could hope for...
...apart from the cutest mother in the world (mine) ordering the dr horrible dvd for me! yayness!
my day is so made.

and now for the emo part of this post:

bit dead after a sleepless night on the bus from hyd to blore. i have instant soup and cup noodles to make for dinner, for optimal cooking avoidage.

the scene like part:

our bus hit a man and woman on a bike and then dramatic yelling scene happened...which is when we got off and got on an auto (thankfully we were in blore when this occured) the woman was a bit dazed and was escorted to the pavement where she sat down (by a random stranger, not the man she was on the bike with..he was too busy yelling at the bus driver...i hope someone had the sense to get her to a hospital to make sure she wasnt concussed).

having a gloomy gus of a day...which was briefly made better by watching many many videos of ralph fiennes/house/joss whedon doing a funny sexy walk/the oc...and then got gloomier because i was googling jeremy piven and john cusack and the internet says they havent been friends since 2007 (yes im a little late...). die. why my idea of life is based upon people i do not know...i do not know. but it is. a bit. everytime i hear that something i had faith in doesnt exist anymore. a little piece of the shiny image i have of the world shatters. like dr horrible i wake up slowly to the hideosity of a world without constants such as cusack and piven. i remember when for years and years (in english papers and moral science and such like) when i had to essay about my favourite memory (yeah exams can be retarded like that) i chose the same one, just a normal day visiting a friend of my dad and his wife...and then some years later my mum casually mentioned that they broke up. and obviously i was DEVASTATED. and she was all err major overreaction wot. this is a bit like that. O_O it just occurs to me that now i probably cant watch my favourite john cusack movies now...because everytime i see them together, i'll cringe and die a little, everytime we say goodbye...i wonder whyyyyy a little... (couldnt resist :))

anyway other plans for the day. chocolate muesli and milk for dinner. then watch 'let the right one in' which i have loaded and all ready to watch. except the house feels empty...

listening to joy division probably wasnt the best idea :)

okayyy i need to do something now! something tres cheery! but what?

do you know that google doesnt google emotes? i tried googling a sad face today. didnt work. shock. horror.

From my heart and from my hand/Why dont people understand/My intentions...oooh, weird...Weird science!

discovery! danny elfman was in oingo boingo! been listening to some songs now and weirdly feel like i know them already. probably because 'weird science' is from the ost of weird science! which is a completely excellent 80s movie. nerds making girls and wearing bras on their heads. it doesnt get any better than that.

i feel lazy today. going to get some lunch. watch some tv. and hopefully be bathed before i have to meet divya. we are going to YLG for more freebies :) i gets that pedicure today. my feets are hideous right now. and soonly they will be thinking black/briiight piiink/dark red for my leaning towards the pink :D for that very very clean look. or a really pale shiny pink...

almost famous always gets me. gets me thinking. about life. about everything. about music.

iv got cameron crowe to thank for a lot of things. for the way i am. almost everything i do (most of the time) makes me a tiny bit guilty. endless parental discussions leading to brain washing of sorts. being me does not coincide with who i am expected to be. but almost famous makes me seem normal again. it's normal to want to live. to experience. to be. to listen. and everything is the real world. no separation. biggest lesson - regret nothing. take your chances when you can. and forget the rest. be honest and unmerciful. it's okay to be uncool. great art comes from being uncool...

one of my favourite moments (this changes everytime i watch it...there are the constants - penny's feet...penny dancing...william's 'sweet' flying high over tupelo missisippi ...and we're all going to die!) is when sapphire is eating lunch at the same table as russell near the end...and he's all hows penny blahdiblah and she's talking about the new girls and how they dont use birth control and know nothing about being a love some silly little piece of music or some band so much it hurts.


wow. now go read some cameron crowe. he will save your soul (from the harsh face of reality).

also genius - say anything/singles/jerry maguire

Coffee? Water? How about some water? I'll meet you where you're already having lunch, and we'll have some water.
