Bleach OST and Some Who

I’m not really up for talking much lately, in fact I can’t work up any motivation to type up anything. So I don’t have much to say on this post, but I really wanted to share my love with the Bleach soundtrack and some Doctor Who music videos. So enjoy~

 

Lyrics:
Bite them! Poke them! Torture and gore them! Bug them! Tease them! Mess with their heads! Slaughter, gore them. Slitter and wear them. Burn them – grill them! Rattle their bones! Bite them! Eat them! Torture and Beat them! Maim them! Kill them! Cut off their heads! Slay them! Flay them! Wither and pull them! Dance on their graves ’cause now they’re dead!

 

 

Lyrics:

Cometh the Hour of our Reckoning, we will be ready
Cometh the Man who will Fight beside me and be steady
Cometh the Angel, the messenger from Hell we dreaded
Cometh the Devil’s disciples, so we must be ready

My heart is strong, my faith goes on, but if my world is threatened,
I’ll fight the fight, they’ll pay the price, their blood will flow with vengeance!
The dogs of war will rip apart hostility unbounded,
And to the end our guns will roar until the enemy is

Crushed
To the point of no return
Beg for mercy, scum of Satan
Lucifer’s a corpse in waiting!

 

Lyrics:
For every man there is a cause which he would proudly die for.
Defend the right to have a place for which he can belong to.
And if we go and fight, we face their hearts in desperation.
And shed his blood to stem the flood of an impending invasion.

 

Lyrics:
I can tell you’ve never been true to me
I can smll that you’re acting so fearfully
I can hear what you’re hoping I want to hear
I can feel the alarm bells ringing in me
I can touch but I know you don’t feel a thing
I can pray but I know you commit a sin
I can sense now it’s all become clear to see
You’re no good, and you mean no good, treacherously.

A Movie Review on “Cherobyl Diaries” and…Stuff

I so totally got my cousin into horror movies. Surprisingly enough, the gateway movie was Paranormal Activity. Anyway, she wanted to go see  Chernobyl Diaries, a particularly intriguing background setting and plot for a horror flick. If you have no idea what I’m talking about, here’s a short summary of Chernobyl’s infamy:

The Chernobyl disaster was a catastrophic nuclear accident that occurred on 26 April 1986 at the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant in Ukraine (then officially Ukrainian SSR), which was under the direct jurisdiction of the central authorities of the Soviet Union. An explosion and fire released large quantities of radioactive contamination into the atmosphere, which spread over much of Western USSR and Europe. It is widely considered to have been the worst nuclear power plant accident in history, and is one of only two classified as a level 7 event on the International Nuclear Event Scale (the other being the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster in 2011). The battle to contain the contamination and avert a greater catastrophe ultimately involved over 500,000 workers and cost an estimated 18 billion rubles, crippling the Soviet economy.
(Wikipedia)

So onto the movie. The trailers led me to believe that this was a ghost story, but it is most certainly not. Think Resident Evil, minus the action and special effects. While the initial plot behind the whole movie is pretty cool, I thought the actual sequence of events was pretty lame, as was the ending. Personally, I would have been more content with a ghost story.

Also, you sort of have to piece together what’s going on, it never fully explains much of anything. While I get the gist of everything, there’s still a lot that was left unexplained that I would have liked elaboration on. I’ll probably leave this at a 6/10, because let’s face it, there are a lot of horrible Horror movies out there, and this one was a lot better than the crap I’ve watched. Still, besides the whole ‘pop out and scare the Sh*t out of you’ factor, there isn’t really much scariness to this.

Here’s the trailer:

And then, while I searched for that link, I found this:

Added it to my ipod. New favorite song. Speaking of songs, are you ready to feel the jealously? Yeah, because I went and saw Yanni live. That’s right…you have no idea what I’m talking about, do you? Well, educate yourself. Oh, and here’s a tidbit.

And for finally making it to the end, here’s your prize. An awkward photo of me and my cousin.

A Throne for Avengers And Damn I Wish I Could Draw

I know it’s been sorta official for a while now, but Tumblr has exploded with Avengers gifs, pictures, quotes, etc. More specifically, it has exploded years worth of Tom Hiddleston paraphernalia, all of which I (no regrets) have been hoarding in my own personal Tom library. I mean, he’s no Chris Hemsworth, who I find just adoring by the way. Still, the man is quite charming, and he is just a brilliant actor.

Anyway, this is a sip of what I have stored away.

Aren’t they both just so lovely? I fan-girled and bought posters of both of them…anyway. You know I didn’t actually fall completely for Tom until I read this:

“TOM HIDDLESTON: Mark Ruffalo’s son. I kind of dedicate my performance to his son, his ten-year old, because he was on set a lot.  Joss Whedon and Kevin Feige, the producer, they were enormously supportive on set.  They were very complimentary when they liked something that I was doing.  I would do a take, and they would say, “Awesome.  You got it.  Let’s — “  And Kevin Feige would be like, “God, that was great.  Let’s move on.”  And you get on with the day.  The days that Mark’s son was there, he was like, “Awesome job, Tom. We got it.  Let’s move on.”  Kevin would say the same thing, and then Mark’s son would say, “Oh, my God!  Tom!  That was incredible!  That was the most awesome thing I have ever seen!”  And I’m like, “I am doing this for you.”  And, you know, there were days when Mark would come in with him just to watch, because he wanted to watch.  He’d be like, “I’m sorry.  We’re here again.  He just loves you.”  And then you realize that that’s the power that these films can have.

It’s such a beautiful thing.  It’s a really amazing privilege.”

Isn’t that just melt worthy? Well, whatever, I think it is. I also stumbled across some Game of Thrones junk.

I’m sorry. You can smash my face into the bathroom mirror later, if you like. But first, some art that I admire.

I just love Deviantart artists. That last one, oh how I love her stuff…more or less the Labyrinth stuff. It’s a fetish, I’ll admit it. Here’s the fanfic (which is surprisingly hilarious and totally M rated) that accompanies the picture. It’s very well written.

Link: The T-Shirt Incident

You might wanna check out the pictures first, just so you know where the plot is coming from.

And I would just like to mention, that this whole Wonder Woman/Batman thing in the animated Justice League series…it’s totally legit. I mean, can we just take a moment and observe that sly expression on her face? She just kissed him, after he went frantic over trying to rescue her from a pile of rubble. Does that not scream potential relationship?

Shut up. I know I’m lame. Anyway, ignore the large expanse of white space up there. I was too lazy to edit the screen capture of my desktop. I also don’t understand the weird text after my Tom rant. Let’s just pretend I’m perfect.

Ha! I learned how to fix it! Ten points to…you know, I don’t care to admit what House I’ve been sorted into on Pottermore.

Magical Dragons and Hating My Lack of Talent

Youtube is a black hole in my life. Once I start browsing videos, I can’t stop…and once I hit Ellen episodes, I’m completely lost. She’s like Pringles, you can’t have just one.  Anyway, I came across Pen & Teller’s Fool Us, and I thought this was quite beautiful:

Isn’t it awesome? I mean, he’s just using a mirror, but the illusion itself is magical (ba-dum-cha). Anyway, I also found this gem:

Most of his routines are the same, but this bit was brilliant.

As is this:

It’s What It Is: Movie Review on Devil

I remember wanting to see this movie so badly when it first came out…I think it had something to do with the goth phase I went through. Anyway, I finally got to see it (I know, I know, two years late), and while it wasn’t bad, it wasn’t really all that great either. Here’s a small synopsis:

Five strangers trapped in an elevator realize that one of them is the Devil in this thriller from director John E. Dowdle (Quarantine) and screenwriter Brian Nelson (Hard Candy, 30 Days of Night). The first installment of “The Night Chronicles,” a film series in which up-and-coming filmmakers bring to life stories conceived by M. Night Shyamalan, Devil opens to find five Philadelphia office workers filing into the elevator of an inner-city office building. But a typical day at the office takes a sudden detour into terror when the elevator becomes stuck between floors, and the passengers discover that the Devil does exist, and he’s standing right before them. As emergency workers work frantically to free them, secrets are revealed and the passengers realize their only hope for survival is to confront their darkest sins in front of the others.
(Jason Buchanan, Rovi)

Thank you, Rotten Tomatoes. I didn’t really care for the characters, they were pretty boring and there were a lot of relationships left sorta unresolved. I did, however, enjoy the intro and ending narration. I also thought the confrontation scene with the devil was cool-the way they portrayed him was something along the lines of “Yeah, I’m a bad-ass immortal being. Deal with it”.

Oh, and on a Katie-note, I loathed the soundtrack. I think that was the most unoriginal part of the movie, in my opinion anyway. I’d probably only give the movie a 5/10.

On another note, has anyone noticed this?

If so…

WHY DID NO ONE TELL ME? I mean, NPH as Nightwing? Jensen Ackles (that’s right, one of the J^2) as Red Hood? Two amazing actors as two of the Robins? I don’t think this movie could be any more awesome. The movie, by the way, is Batman: Under the Red Hood.

Slainte, viewers~

Really Epic Face-Offs: Metrocon 2008 Cosplay Chess

Okay, so a few months ago I learned what cosplay chess was, and my first experience was meh. Some people just stood on a checkered board and took a few swings at eachother, nothing spectacular. I wasn’t impressed, but then I tried another one today from another con…and oh my lord, the entire thing was beyond epic. I mean, they must have spent hours upon hours practicing the choreography and special effects.

I’m fairly sure my mind has just been blown. I’ll share some clips with you~

I really liked this Mario Bros one, they did a good job capturing the essence of the game.

Whoever played Envy was really flexible…0.0

Once again, this choreography astounds me.

This one is a MUST WATCH. I mean, her costume is beautiful It must have taken forever to make.

 

Love Never Dies…Well, Actually, It Does

Spoilers~

The other half of my soul, Maria, gets me addicted to so many awesome things: one of them being The Phantom of the Opera: Love Never Dies. God, the music is absolutely gorgeous, and it’s interesting how Andrew Lloyd Webber altered the opera-esque tone of the songs to something…more. I’m no music buff, so I really don’t know the terminology for this kind of stuff, but the instruments portray the the scenes and characters so well. And FINALLY we get some hot Phantom/Christine action! I mean, come on, there’s a song about them making love. It doesn’t get much better than that. And Christine finally grows some backbone instead of acting like a delirious schoolgirl. The only downside to all this is the horrid ending…well, it’s not too bad, but I definitely don’t like it.

Here’s a quick summary of it, if you’re interested:

Ten years after the events at the Paris Opera, The Phantom, the creator and owner of Phantasma (Coney Island) is tortured by the absence of Christine and longs to hear her again. He sends her an invitation to Coney Island to make her American debut. She accepts without knowing the sender and comes with her husband Raoul (Vicount de Chagny) and her son (Gustave). But secrets are unveiled, because apparently Christine had a tryst with the Phantom, intent on staying with him rather than Raul. The Phantom, however, afraid of the morning after, ran away to America with Madam Giry and Meg. It is now that Christine sees him once more that the question of Gustave’s parentage comes into question, as does Christine’s ultimate love.

Enjoy the embedded Youtube clips I planted below~

Oh, how I adore Ramin’s Phantom. He just portrays him so well, and the essence of chemistry between him and Sierra is BAM!
