well, livejournal, you've finally done it. if i'm forced to use the 'new version' of the friends page, i'm officially out and over to dreamwidth. surely there's a way to read my lj friends list over there somehow. and i know i've said OOP MOVING TO DREAMWIDTH before it seems a million times, but my laptop doesn't have the ram/memory/whatever to support endless scroll, so i won't be able to check my friends list on lj. just as i can't scroll through tumblr with endless scroll enabled. and you know, even if i did have a super fast internet connection and plenty of space, I STILL WOULDN'T WANT IT. ugh, smh to the person who invented it. [edit: to complain, go here. not that livejournal even bothers to listen to its non-russian users anymore.]

unrelated but equally if not more important:

stay safe, you hurricane endangered peeps! <333

There's enough floating around out there about My Bloody Valentine 3D to write a small book with, so I don't see any point in posting a whole review about it, but there are some things worth sharing.

Rachael, Nicole and I left for Fort Wayne early yesterday morning, to visit their grandparents and then see the movie in 3D, as Fort Wayne was the nearest place showing it as such. My first time ever being in Fort Wayne, whoohoo. I expected the theater to be an IMAX, but it wasn't. No Friday the 13th preview, which disappointed me. (A little helping of Jared alongside Jensen never hurt anyone, lol.) I kept turning to Nicole or Ray during the movie and forgetting that we were all wearing these ridiculous glasses, so I'd stiffle a laugh as I said something like "Wow, that was gory," or "YEAH, blood spatter!" Sorry, Jensen, but those glasses aren't any cooler than the flimsy red and blue ones of old days.

If you see it, you HAVE to see it in 3D. The drive to the theater is worth it. I've heard it kinda sucks in 2D, anyway. I don't really remember ever seeing a 3D movie, and I KNOW I've not seen one like this, because it's not just scenes here and there, it's the whole movie. I felt like a voyeur at times, like I was listening in on conversations I should've been, standing right next to Jensen and Kerr's characters without them knowing I was there. It was a little...creepy, at times, even. But its so worth it, from the axe coming out of the screen at your head numerous times, to bullets and blood splatter and broken glass in your direction.

It's not THAT scary. There's a few good surprises, but its mostly just humorous, gratuitous gore. I think I jumped once or twice, and then laughed every other time, when people were attacked.

major spoilers ahoy here, do skip if you haven't seen )
END SPOILERS.




A whole area of downstairs is blocked off from the busted water line. The fire alarm's gone off again while they've been working on it. My RA says there's not really much they can do right now while it's so cold. The weather's putting a huge stress on the old pipes. And they're afraid the water break damaged the electrical system, too. No big problems so far, though, but its very...ominous.

You'll notice I'm avoiding actually talking about my schoolwork. I've also been avoiding DOING it. Sigh. It and all other things I should be doing, like finding a job and figuring out what the fuck to do with my life come May.

I am finally watching The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford. It's been sitting on my shelf since I begged Brett to buy it for me in Novemberish, after catching just the end of it on the movie channel. It's long, and not necessarily confusing, but its a very...subtle storytelling thats hard to follow at times. I have the sense I'm not grasping everything thats happening in the plot. But I know the story well. I always had a thing for stories like Jesse James. And I can't explain what it is about this movie, but it's wonderful. Like...No Country for Old Men wonderful. The story is terribly gritty and dark, but the picture, the images, and the characters are so wonderfully vibrant that you can't help but get sucked into the film.

GOD, why wasn't I a TCOMM major?! I'd know so much about the film making process now. Sigh.

"It's practically Canadian!" Or...proof that its too fucking cold outside.

Ask me about my evening. No,really. I'll be happy to tell you how the fire alarm went off, something not terribly uncommon in this dorm, but that we were shuffled to the multipurpose room of the next nearest dorm, something that's NEVER happened in the almost 3 years I've lived here. There, we waited, for almost an hour, while RA's tried to sort out the people who were missing from their attendance calls. NEVER were we told what had happened, what was going on, or when or even if we'd be allowed back in our rooms. When I asked the RA I had last year what was going on, she ignored me. FINALLY Nicole cornered the dorm director who told us that a water main had burst in the building setting off the fire alarm (yeah, I don't get that either) and that we'd be allowed back in soon, but that the 1st floor was pretty damp and that the sidewalk was all frozen. So, I'm home sweet dorm now. But NEVER ONCE was an announcement made to the 400+ people left homeless for the better part of 2 hours. UGH. I hate this university.

Not to mention I was on my way to bed, considering that we're leaving at 930 tomorrow morning to go see My Bloody Valentine 3D in Fort Wayne. I'm pretty wide awake now. UGH.

I discovered [livejournal.com profile] blindfold_spn today, and I'm like systematically reading what interests me now. LOL. Of course, the prompting ended like...yesterday or something. Too little too late. haha. But dude. People are kinky. And it's awesome. *shifty eyes*

Battlestar Galactica is BACK! I debated on whether or not to post anything about it.
some small not-so-small spoilers )

THE. Fucking. END. I'm going to attempt sleep now.

ETA: And as I just caught on the end of whatever news show Kendra's watching, this video's kinda cool. I found it really cool cuz I loved the West Wing, but it's still kinda neat. It's the show's introduction music, but with real people in Obama's administration and stuff. *shrugs* I thought it was neat, okay?
