  1. Mental Images during songs.

    I will now forever associate "Human of the Year" with the ending of Lost.
  2. What are you watching right now?

    Does anyone here watch Syfy's Warehouse 13? Last week's season premiere blew my mind, especially with the events of the first season finale in mind. The female lead bears a cursory resemblance to Regina, which is what caused me to start watching in the first place.
  3. Let's go to the Movies...

    quote: Originally posted by dentistgirl: Oh man, M. Night Shyamalan, you have failed me. The Last Airbender sucked horribly. All those bad reviews...so true, for once. Dialogue, can we say CORNY?! The acting wasn't too swift. There was horribe green screening. Need i say more? Such good potential, wasted. As a fan of the series, I was mortified from the start when I heard that "Shyamalamalan" (as Dale Gribble calls him) was to be directing a feature film adaptation. I have found the critical response to this travesty absolutely hilarious; it goes to show you that you don't even have to be familiar with the source material (which was mercilessly skewed) to realize what a failure this film is. I am also thoroughly amused by the fact that the creators of the series were paid to keep their mouths shut about how they felt about this massacre of their work. Hollywood will never change.

    WHERE'S YOUR KID NOW, SHERIFF? I loved this movie so much. "Bittersweet" is indeed the perfect way to summarize it. I wanted the opening scene to go on forever; it kept escalating and getting more and more fantastical! It was just so wonderful to see everyone again...Nostalgia at its finest.
  5. What are you watching right now?

    Ben Linus has been my hero since his very first episode, but that probably isn't going to come as a surprise to anyone.
  6. What are you listening to right now?

    My favorite Internet radio station, Radio Dismuke. It plays music from the 30's and before. Oh, what I would give to be able to visit those days...

    ...Oh, wow. Thank you so very much!
  8. Anyone kinda tired of Fidelity?

    I could never be tired of Fidelity. It was my very first Regina experience, and will always hold a special place in my heart. I can see why it gets flak for being featured in lieu of her other songs, though.

    I do have a wee rant of my own, actually! I want to watch the first part of the Doctor Who finale that just aired on the BBC, but their online video service is only available to residents of the UK. The American BBC that I get is four episodes behind, airing them on a weekly basis. I don't want to wait more than a month to see this! Such flagrant discrimination!

    Yeah, it'd be hard to carry on a conversation in a topic dedicated to little rants (Although I find the image of two people having an unrelated discussion in here while forcing in minor complaints like grievances against the twisty-tie things that come with bread to stay on topic most amusing), but if you'd like to talk, you can just e-mail me at crocodile_cacophony@yahoo.com at any time--and that goes for everyone! quote: Originally posted by Reginaoverdose: *sorry to interrupt* HI HENRY! We missed you. Hello, hello! I've missed you all as well, although I insist that you've been missing nothing! And now I'd better shut up . Carry on ranting as you were, all!
  11. i love you all.

    As am I, my friend!
  12. Wee Rants

    You too? I never leave home without it! No, seriously, I keep a roll of duct tape in my travel bag. Mostly for humor purposes, but I've broken it out for real once or twice lately! See how resourceful and ingenuitive you are? You can handle any adversity, no matter how bleak it may seem to you!
  13. Wee Rants

    I've missed you too! I had various situations on my plate that kept dividing my time and attention, but I simply could not stay away any longer. In fact, wondering how you were doing was one of the driving forces behind my return. Not having a studying place sure sounds like a horrendous setback, but I have absolute faith in you. The fact that you're one of those people who always need to be doing something only serves to strengthen my belief that you can work around this; such work ethic is truly a rare and valuable thing, and it will get you far. I, too, am a very emotional person, but emotions are what make life worth living! We feel because we care, and society needs all the care it can hold. ...Also, I absolutely love that line in your signature . Miles, Miles!
  14. i love you all.

    I have missed my family here dearly. Life managed to keep me away for far too long. I fought many battles, suffered a few setbacks...but here I am. May this place never change.

    quote: Originally posted by rainna: No that I'm out of there I'm just very scared. Scared of losing my friends, hobbies, confidence... And since my studying future is very insecure right now, I feel like there will be no place for me outside the school. This sounds so silly, but I think that's one of my biggest concerns now. I've spent three years in this fantastic little bubble, but now I've been thrown to real world and I really don't like it here. That is exactly how I felt, Rainna. I just completed my first semester of college, and it was honestly the most difficult year of my life. I have no idea what kind of career I'm going to end up with, so I feel like I'm doing all this work for nothing. Being thrown to the real world made me miss what I had before more than anything. But we've got to be strong. This is all merely a change of scenery. The nature of the work is no different, and the environment is going to be what you make of it. This, I have found to be a constant. You will have countless opportunities to shape your new "bubble;" seize them. Trust me, your destiny is in your hands. In my eyes, this is the main difference between the real world and the world we were forced out of: it's all on us now. Hold your hobbies close to your heart, seek out resources to enrich them in your new world, and grow inside and out. You will likely discover your calling this way. As for the fear of losing your friends, I most certainly experienced this. My college was in another state, after all. However, I have maintained regular e-mail correspondence with the lot of them, and we're all going to meet up soon once they've all arrived home. It's different, but I've grown closer than ever to them as a result of the changes. You can adapt to all of the unsettling changes that await you. I surprised myself with how quickly I managed, especially since I spent the whole of last summer dreading what was to come. Just remember...embrace who you are, and stay true to that person, and you will rise above the shifting sea.
