carmilla [02 Mar 2018|10:11am]
[ mood | accomplished ]

i finally read carmilla, after all these years. i originally intended to read it after dracula in high school, but i got distracted.
it's definitely a good compliment to dracula, though, and since it actually inspired bram stoker's novel, that's not surprising.



i've played games like castlevania or read comics that always mentioned carmilla or were inspired by the book, things like her mask or the name kernstein, but there's surpringly very few adaptions of the book.



the vampire lovers is actually a really good movie, faithful to the novel, but as far as i know, that's it, besides some low budget "2 vampire chicks making out" movies here and there.



i'd recommend checking out both the book and the movie though, if you're interested in vampire lore. it's cool seeing how older books wrote about vampires before all the cool, sleek, exploding in daylight, romantic garbage they turned into recently. back when they were monsters.

a perfect circle [25 Feb 2018|08:10am]
[ mood | excited ]

the last real album by a perfect circle was thirteenth step, the covers album doesn't really count, and that came out a few months after I started my livejournal.
that was 15 years ago.

now i've started my using my livejournal again and there's going to a new album in april. i couldn't be more excited.
i've basically had the first 3 songs on repeat.

i'm also sad i missed them when they played down here last year, until then i've seen them every time they were in florida, but maybe i can make up for that when they tour for this album.

thinking [24 Feb 2018|09:32am]
[ mood | contemplative ]

man, the older i get, the more i like being alone. when i stop talking to someone, they're usually toxic people anyways, and it feels like i just threw out some things that were just taking up space. and it feels great. that feeling of your life being less cluttered. less problems.

being alone is just who i am. it's what i'm comfortable with and when i'm most happy.

that being said, i DO prefer to be around people i really click with.
but that's rare and not really worth expecting.

like, i'm either am completely obessed with someone or they might as well not exist.

the black monday murders [23 Feb 2018|04:07pm]

i'm obsessed with the black monday murders.




seriously, this is one of the best new comics out right now.
the only downside is the wait between issues.

[ mood | thirsty ]

i went for a walk, stopped for a fountain soda, filled it to the top, and put the cap on only to realized the slightest puncture with my straw will send soda gushing everywhere if it's not directly put in the center. i was seriously hovering with the straw in my hand and everyone staring at me like

alien [27 Mar 2017|09:06am]
[ mood | creative ]

check out this lovelyness. i still can't believe we're getting a true alien movie from ridley scott.
.


it looks like he's respecting hr giger's original design (he had giger make a mural in prometheus they used in the big engineer face chamber).
plus eggs, facehuggers, and what looks like a queen's head at the top.

what's also interesting is originally, right after promethus came out, ridley said he wanted to base the sequel on dante's inferno, or at least pull influence from it, and call the film paradise lost. since then, they seemed to have focused on making it a true alien film, but have at least kept the imagrey with this poster, which is based on a dante's inferno mural. and from what i've seen in the trailer, they're still using the "paraise lost" idea literally, with a inhabitable planet lost to the aliens.

i'm so excited for this.

so marvel is resurrecting wolverine and jean grey (finally, she's been dead for over a decade) in their new generations comic.



i'm pretty stoked. i've missed wolverine, although old man logan is awesome, but I've really missed jean.
now they just need to resurrect professor x (phoenix possessed cyclops killed him in avengers vs. x-men) and cyclops (he died from the terrigen cloud) and it'd finally be like 90s x-men again.

i stopped eating meat [24 Mar 2017|02:32pm]
[ mood | hungry ]

it's been about a year since i stopped eating meat. it's not as bad as I thought it'd be.

the only thing is, i should be eating healthier by default, right? but I usually end up eating like, pizza or french fries.

womp.

i gotta work on that.

the unstoppable force vs. the imovable object [21 Jul 2008|01:14pm]
[ mood | blank ]

so i saw the dark knight.
i'm seeing it again. i have to.
it was by far the best movie i've seen in ...years.
how many? i'm not sure. but i really have yet to see, at all, a movie that combines summer action fare with a smart, meaningful story.
the joker is also by far, in my opinion, the greatest character to grace a movie screen.
and this isn't that new movie smell that's got to me. no, this is including movies from the past century.
i've never seen a character on screen and completely believed he existed. always in the back of my head i'm thinking about the actor playing him. no, not this time. the joker is real in this movie. and how he's grounded in reality. just a purple suit and some paint on his face.
he's ...plausible. he can exist. no chemical bath or hard to believe cause for his look and existence.
in his words "just a few bullets and some dynamite" is all he needed to become the greatest screen character i've ever seen.
oh yes, i'm seeing it again.

and my costume should be here soon. i got it all at once. the vest, the coat, the make up.
i suppose i'll go to the next fetish party. or i'll just wear it for halloween like i intended.

that's it at the moment.
good day.

time to be ruthless.
4 months to go. then i'm gone.
money must be absorbed and stocked away like so many bears do when they hibernate.
except bears stock delicious yums, not money.
i have most of what i've been meaning to aquire, except one last peice of equipment.
a car. but also i need to acutally go to philly with tereza and find a place of residence.
so i need a ticket too. and soon. srsly.
also: orlando at the end of june.

tomorrow: stir crazy.
maybe some sneakers.
anything is possible.

and i got world of warcraft.

joeshin on alleria.
warlocking blood elf.

for when i can't sleep.

speaking of which, i had a goddamn dream about tereza scott baio.
like the tereza one was fine, we were hanging in outer space talking about trees or something. but the scott baio one invovled me and him working on rebuilding his image through his website: scottbaio.com. anyways, some dude was working on it too and he totally screwed it up so i was like "ass" and scott baio was mighty pissed and went on about how he's tarnishing the scottbaio.com name. then i got mad and i told scott baio i'd see him later and i walked out of the room and onto college grounds to a class or whatever.

no, really.

i guess it's better than tornados.

right [07 May 2008|10:34am]
[ mood | creative ]

so today is going to be splendid.

what to do?
well i just found out my new tv will be here friday.
yes!

there's also the idea of going to a fetish party dressed as the joker.
before, you know, EVERYONE dresses like him. i just need to acutally get a costume that looks like him. purple coats are hard to find, along with green vests.
i got the hair and make up though. i can pull that off i'm sure.


i also need to get tickets for eddie izzard.

and i need to hang out with various friends again.

and alot of other stuff.

oh man, i can't wait until i move and i can write without problems. and paint. and do whatever else i want. creativly.

also, i need a FILM camera for filmmaking.
those are pretty expensive. about $3,000.
there's always rentals though, which is what most people do.

and i'm acutally getting back into gaming again. instead of buying new games i'm going back and playing ones i never got to or bought.

next is: final fantasy xii.

that is all for now.

past few days [30 Apr 2008|04:56pm]
i was over tereza's place for the past few days. just me and her. w00t. since saturday night acutally. much fun was had. including video games and movies and nudity abound. also the nice feeling of being with someone and not getting sick of their presence..well for me anyways...from being with them for a long period of time. good news since we're going to be roommates soon.

i also found out my tv is was backstocked, but it'll be in stock in a few days so i'll be getting it next week. i also really have a longing to play a game again. like from beginning to end. a new game. there's just something really cool about getting immersed in a game for maybe a week or so that i really miss. there's acutally some good games coming out now too so maybe i can acutally do that again. 'cuz srsly, there wasn't that much to choose from in the past year or so.

oh yeah! i saw the mission veo friday night. they were great. like exceptionally good. they're a smaller local band but they sound like they've been playing for years. really cool gothic dance rock type of sound. i think that's acutally a game you can play. gothic always beats dance. but rock beats gothic. anyways, that was fun. the club they were playing at, respectables, was really cool too. really fun vibe sitting in there with people around and loud music playing. i liked it.
