Whole mess o' nines. [09 Sep 2009|09:09am]

Püf! [22 Jul 2009|04:18am]
[ mood | quixotic ]

Sitting in a cafe in Istabul, having calamari and apple tea. Saw HBP last night--two year anniversary of the last book, coincidentally, and my near-death experience with a deer in the middle of pitch-dark Virginia farmland at 2 in the morning--and must say, Turkish subtitles improve everything.

"One day I had a fish, and then...Püf!"

I find it amusing that traveling to 8 different countries in one summer does not draw me out of the LJ woodwork; Harry Potter does.

My love to everyone; I'll be home a month from today. <3

Wir mussen leben; muss' wir sterben? [04 Jun 2009|10:06pm]
[ mood | crazy ]

“Live this day as if it will be your last. Remember that you will only find 'tomorrow' on the calendars of fools. Forget yesterday's defeats and ignore the problems of tomorrow. This is it. Doomsday. All you have. Make it the best day of your year. The saddest words you can ever utter are, 'If I had my life to live over again.' Take the baton, now. Run with it! This is your day! Beginning today, treat everyone you meet, friend or foe, loved one or stranger, as if they were going to be dead at midnight. Extend to each person, no matter how trivial the contact, all the care and kindness and understanding and love that you can muster, and do it with no thought of any reward. Your life will never be the same again.”

~~Og Mandino

Sometimes I resent the fact that the death of one young actor I never even knew forced me into the panic of having to live my life aware of my mortality, forced me to realize that I could die at any instant, for any reason--a flipped car at a crosswalk, an aneurysm in my sleep--forced me to live my life on five hours of sleep and a maniacal grin, wringing every ounce of life out of my day. Forced me to seize that day because of the perfect clarity of belief that it could truly be my last. Sometimes I resent the sense of death hounding my heels, threatening to take me should I ever gear out of the fast lane, the bright lane, all color and thunder and stress and sheer maddening fun. Sometimes I resent it.

Then I remember how much more fucking awesome life is, lived this way, and how I wouldn't trade it for order and eight hours a night and a solid schedule, ever, ever again.

My life has sucked lately! I love my friends and they are the only things that make it worth it all! I sort of have a computer again! I have finished my summer job! I am back at school! I like exclamation points! I am telling myself I will clarify all this later, but I kind of doubt it!

...Where's my soda?


I hope to have a regularly scheduled life back sometime in the near future. I am still worshipping the same gods. I still don't have iTunes repaired. I am job-hunting again. I love my roommate FTWin. A bunch of collages are up. I wish I could sure the need to sleep so I'd have seven extra hours a day to actually finish things.


I love you, internet. I need a nap.

(I swear I will eventually post something on here to remind you why I'm on your f-list.)

HELP NEEDED [05 Jan 2008|08:34pm]
[ mood | busy ]

Does anyone, *anyone*, have or know where I could find a higher resolution version of this picture?


I'm doing a big collage, and I have seriously spent two hours to no avail. Screencaps, stills, promos, sheer Googling, I have done all combinations of keywords--does anyone have any ideas? I would have thought this shot would be super popular given all the icons it used to star on, but I've only found two versions in all my googling, and this is by far the largest.

Help, please???

"And when Alexander came to the great river of the East, he sank to his knees and wept, for there were no more worlds to conquer."

Yes. Yes, it feels quite something like that, to know I've finished the last of them.

Full review forthcoming.

In case you haven't seen, but they are clips from "Harry Potter and The Order of the Phoenix." They fucked Bellatrix's voice up, in my opinion, but the Threstrals are tight, Luna's perfect, and the Patronus scene makes me glee really hard. I think I'm gonna love this movie *intensely.* :D

zero population increase... [03 Apr 2007|05:37pm]
[ mood | hot ]

My life is terribly if amusingly scripted.

Today's music-video of existence:

Sitting on Ball Circle in the fresh grass and sun and reading, my iPod joyfully singing "Generations" from Children of Eden. Only a few people on campus walk, and then classes begin to let out. Through the course of the song, I go from being the only one out here to being surrounded first by ten, then by fifty, then by a hundred, then something around a thousand students bustling down Campus Walk to their next classes.

Son follow father, birth follow birth!
Spread the people all over the earth!
Mamma tell daughter how boy follow girl!
Spread the people all over the wide wide world!

All the nations!

Beget, begat, begot, begotten!
Generations of Adam!

It was very charming.

Sorry if that only made sense to the musical elite among my f-list. :/

I need to update this more with, you know, real things.

In the olden days, by which I mean junior year, I'd've made a CD of these and a few others and passed it around. I would have given it a title and everything. What were the old ones? Um..."Lullaby," "Red Ribbons," "Exit," "The Walk," "The Highwayman," "Sentimentality," "Unlovely," "Faithless," "A Strange Kind of Brightside," "The Ghost of the Yellow Dog." Hm. I rather miss doing that. : / But everyone has iPods nowadays, including me, so CDs aren't much for it.


I am done with all of Lost that is available. My Lust List remains as it was. And if a certain character dies Ima pitch a fit. >:P


I am fucking done with Geology. Stressing over Psych and Math, ho.

Yeah, this entry is mainly me being bored.

[ mood | manic ]

I am in a really fucking aggressive mood and no idea where it came from or who/what to inflict it on. HRAH. I want to be savage and manly and beat things to death with a wooden club. Like, a saber-toothed tiger something. Something big.

I gues I'll stay inside and study Geology.
