We lost a dream we never had  
Note: Pretend I did not fall asleep while finishing this post. Pretend this was posted at least 12 hours earlier, as I had originally intended. Pretend I was able to post this before going to school for a symposium I did not make it to. Having those useless bit of information in mind, go on~

Wow I've been gone for so long and ahaha I missed so many days in that meme! LMFAO FAIL. Despite that, I will only post once per post okay?

Okay! o/

Day 02 → Your favorite movie
(full list)

If Tokio Hotel had a movie, it'd probably that.

It's the first of the Pirates of the Caribbean trilogy. The Curse of the Black Pearl is made of so much awesome, I don't think I'll ever get tired of watching it. Whenever I catch it on HBO or sth, I finish it until the end. It's just that epic! Although The Dead Man's Chest comes a close second, it's still just that--second. At World's End is also good--not just as good as the first two. While they get five stars from me, the last one gets only four or sth. I made a post about that before but I'm too lazy to find it and this isn't about At World's End anyway, it's about The Curse of the Black Pearl--which I have somehow deviated from lmao.

And just because I want to share, I will! o/ Next to the first two POTC movies, several other favorites are the Ocean's series, those awesome Korean Movies, The Italian Job, 21, Linda Linda Linda, Mulan, WALL-E, Enchanted, UP, Jay, Stardust, High School Musical 3: Senior Year, Patch Adams, The Departed, Millennium Actress, Tokyo Godfathers, The Prestige, Hogfather, Matchstick Men and The Interpreter among a lot lmao.

Can't say if it's a favorite but I'm also fond of New Moon. YEAH, GO ON AND JUDGE ME.

Speaking of New Moon, I watched it with Jumbie, Andi, Caesar and Xtian (You really should get an Eljay! XD) in Trinomnom last uh, week? Two weeks ago. I LOSE TRACK OF TIME. We used those "free" tickets from That-Citibank-Promo-Which-Is-Actually-A-Lie-Because-You-Have-To-Pay-60PhP-Each-What-The-Fuck--No I am not bitter at all~ We got free popcorn and drinks after all o/ We actually missed the trailers and the first part of the movie but I'm watching again with Tomi again this week with those deceitful free tickets so yay~

Anyway, I think it's much better than the first movie. The cinematography/scene transition/whatever film jargon you call that shit is fucking awesome! And the soundtrack aaaa--I think it's better than the first soundtrack too? *O*

There were only two scenes I did not like and I think the movie could live without or improved. It was that scene where the couple was lying on a field of grass before Bella visited it in its now depressing state. I guess that part was symbolic/whatever critic jargon shit you call it but man, so cheesy. Maybe if the scene was shorter? Idk. Nothing beats Alice's vision of them frolicking in what seems to be the woods though. LMAO WE COULDN'T STOP LAUGHING DURING THAT SCENE. Reminded me of Teletubbies or sth idk. WHY DID THEY HAVE TO FROLICK LIKE THAT HOMG MY BRAIN. My only other critic in this movie is the fact that Edward is the only fugly character in the film. For srs. I went Team Jacob for the most part, wondered where my Team Jasper was every now and then and became Team Fucking Fugly Edward in the end because they are just canon like that. THE MAKEUP, PLEASE FIX IT NEXT TIME. YOU MAKE HIM LOOK LIKE A FRANKENSTEIN, NOT A VAMPIRE orz.

I liked how I understood some parts I didn't get in the book. Maybe I was skipping some paragraphs unconsciously again, idk I just do that sometimes when I read. Several scenes were amusing too. One favorite scene is the one in the ending where the Cullens vote, idky but I liked it. There are several other favorites but I forgot them because I am Kyoy like that. *u*

Lastly, Kristen is still so hot and Alice is pretty and adorable and cute as usual. Aaaa Ashley Greene! ILU2JASPER~ ♥

I'll post the long-overdue answers to questions I asked for from you guys forever and a day ago in my next post or sth. (I'm still sifting my email for them lol orz. /fail) If I asked you for some questions in that meme, can you let me know? I can look for the post/questions myself. I just er--can't remember whom I asked from because I remember being high and commenting everywhere at that time. /s-sigh

Changed a lot in my dear Eljay-kun! Specifically the default icon, journal title & subtitle, friends page title, profile title, menu bar links text, and default LiveJournal language lmao. /tohofag

Speaking of Eljay-kun, can everyone see its favicon in my journal? Andi says she can but I can't. ;o; I just wanna make sure it's just me. And if it is, fuck you SmartBro. Srsly, just--fuck you. :|

BBL when I've finished answering the questions in ElJay and uploading pictures at FaceBook. When I have the time (aka I'm not being the lazy ass I usually am) I will make Hong Kong and AME no Jidai entries~ Better late than never!

ps, Don't you just love how Eljay-kun now updates the time as you make your entry? Goodbye to the hassle of copying a whole entry before refreshing the page just so the time will be accurate and pasting the whole text all over again~ Wow that was a long sentence, wasn't it?

pps, I just remembered since the song was playing. I had a random dream about the song, Zoom Into Me lol.

*JUDGES YOU* Just kidding. I saw Kristen as the daughter in "The Panic Room" the other day and agree that she was hot. I think I prefer her with short blond hair. Still won't watch Twilight or any of its subsequent releases, though.

I see the favicon, yay!

I've always meant to ask, but is your layout meant for a specific resolution? It always gets cut off at the counter on my screen. >:


Eljay used to do that? *never really paid attention to the time*
Bakang Batugan: Squeekyoy on December 14th, 2009 09:13 am (UTC)
LMAO. Funny, I prefer kstew as a brunette. XD She looks hot either way though~ Sokay, I won't force you to watch sth you don't want to dear :3 Have you read the books, is that the reason you refuse to watch it? XD

Yay! o/

I tested it in 1280 and 1024 resolutions and they work fine there. O: Can you show me a screencap dear? Now that you've mentioned it, I won't get any sleep tonight until I fix it. XD

HONG KONG! AME NO JIDAI! Someday, surely--I swear!

Yeah, Eljay-kun never used to update the time. So say you start writing your post at 7am, procrastinate by taking your time, taking a crap, taking a nap, etcetera etcetera, when you finally post your entry six hours later, the time will still be 7am and it'll appear on your friends' pages as an old entry because to Eljay-kun, it was posted six hours earlier. XD (Did that make sense? O:)
Lira: suspiciousseikochan on December 14th, 2009 09:29 am (UTC)
Well, I did attempt to read it a couple of times. The first words I read were "His marble chest-" and I closed the book after that. :/ But I don't really go out to watch movies in general - not even "Up" or "Bolt" or any cool movies released lately. I can't even remember the last movie I watched in a theater. ("Wall-E"? "Baler"? I forgot.)

E-er, uh, never mind, go to bed, dear. ._.

LOL I'll hold you to it.

Ah, yeah, I knew something had changed in the Post Entry page, but I couldn't really figure out what till you pointed it out. I never really paid attention back then, actually. XD
Bakang Batugan: Kiddiekyoy on December 14th, 2009 09:59 am (UTC)
LMAO @ MARBLE CHEST. One wtf line from New Moon I saw quoted once was 'And he dabbed her wound with his rippling chest.' or sth like that. Ider reading that lmao but homgwtf!

Aw you should watch movies in the cinema one of these days, I do it for the surround system and trailers. *u* If you want, I can treat you to a movie with those deceitful 'free' tickets from Citibank~ :3

I-I really won't be able to sleep easily tonight if you don't elaborate dear. It's a disease I have that has no cure. ;o;


Ahaha I guess I'm just a fag like that, idk.
Lira: blankseikochan on December 14th, 2009 10:20 am (UTC)
IKR. Never picking it up again. XD

I guess my problem lies in the timing. It always feels so bad to go out on school nights, and my mother always gets antsy when I go out.

>: If you insist. screencaaaap of eljay ni kyoy
Bakang Batugan: Readykyoy on December 14th, 2009 10:38 am (UTC)
That's understandable dear ahaha.

Aw. Maybe on a Friday or weekends then? Like on the 19th or sth, before the Christmas party desu :3

Oh, I get what you mean now. (I just forgot I had a counter lmao.) Actually, I was hoping browsers aren't long enough/has enough toolbars so the counter isn't seen anymore lol. But when I use Chrome, I see it too. This is sth I don't really mind on my part since I use Firefox (Opera looks shiney! Maybe I should try that someday~ *O*) so I don't have to see it--the only reason it's even there is so that I can still keep track of stats even though some people don't see it. But now, knowing that other people sees its imperfection bothers me lol. I tweaked the settings of the counter a bit. Is the whole thing there now? O: Orz sorry for dragging you into my faggyness ;o;
Lira: fangirlseikochan on December 14th, 2009 10:42 am (UTC)
Yeah, Fridays or weekends sound best. Haha, but what would we waaaatch? *unimaginative*

Haha, it's reduced to just US visitors and Philippine visitors now. Why the heck do you have 3716 US visits and only 955 Philippine visits? D:

OPERAAAAAAAA IT IS SHINEY AND OH-SO-CUSTOMIZABLE do iiiiiiit do it do it do it. The layout you see in the screencap is actually a customized theme - you can download a bunch of awesome looking ones. Black ones are pretty shiny and smooth and pretty, too~ It's really nice, and it has a lot of additional features that are just awesome. In-browser notes, customizable tab opening (I'm an anal tab fag who has to have her tabs open next to the active one), in-browser torrent manager, downloads that pick up from where you left them, and so much more! *A*
Bakang Batugan: Enthralledkyoy on December 14th, 2009 10:50 am (UTC)
Arbebe and I were thinking of that animated movie, A Christmas Carol. Idk if there are any other better movies though, we can check on the day itself~

I have no idea either D: I think it's because of the episode uploads? Again, idrk. (unsure)

Huwao a black theme. *O* I only stay in Firefox because of the flash downloader plugins compatible with NicoNico and YouTube, etcetera etcetera. Does Opera have sth similar? O: Lol I don't think you're anal because of that, since I feel the same way. XD The only thing I like in Chrome is that tabs open next to the active one as well but since Opera has that, I'll give it a try! *O* Thanks for the rec dear! o/

What dream was this? O:
