Month: December 2008

heading up north tomorrow through friday. i’m all kinds of excited. should be nice to see the boys again, get gang-banged, play computer games until the wee hours of the morning. i’ll actually use my voice, hopefully engaged in getting “raw.” i’ve been playing tron 2.0 all day. turns out that the game is addictively amazing. one of those rpg/fps…

today turned out to be horror movie day. i dislike probably 85% of horror movies, so really, this was just self-inflicted torture. kind of acting out of my own snuff porn film via other films. ironic? maybe just tragic. anyway. watched primeval last night. it was about a huge alligator in africa that ate people. there was also a subplot…

i have conquered four video games this week. that is a fact. before this week, i had probably only beaten four games this semester. if that. it’s really kind of staggering. call of duty 5, max payne, timeshift and lost: via domus. the first two were stellar experiences, timeshift had its moments and lost was pretty much, well, lost. it…

just returned from the curious case of benjamin button. three hours well spent. i hope someday i can be that romantic, or, at the very least, write something that romantic. i feel like i just watched the modern-day equivalent of titanic. i’m a little woozy, discombobulated, stuck in another time and place with people i wish i could meet. also,…

i think i enjoy swan lake, as well as its sequels, a city in winter and veil of snows, because each book is like the empire strikes back. it’s basically a downer the whole way through with a small potential uplift at the end. but all the characters are so desperately focused and loyal to each other that it makes…

i was worried that christmas would be strange and unfamiliar this year, taking place in east lansing, shortly after a move and all. but i awoke to large, drifting snowflakes outside my window, and soon discovered cinammon rolls and a plethora of gifts at the base of the stairs. it’s a good thing we weren’t planning on starting a fire…

swan lake is without a doubt the best book i have ever read. i have read it again and again and each time i come away from it with some tiny, different, immutable truth to hold close to my heart. truly, it’s like reading a beautiful symphony. 13 clocks is a close second when considering favorite books, but it’s language…

today i watched gran torino, showered, watched two episodes of big bang theory, finished millenium falcon, finished at the villa of reduced circumstances, beat act two of max payne, watched burn after reading and most of seven pounds. i guess this is the life? it seems like i’m accomplishing a lot on paper, but i do feel somewhat unfulfilled without…

love actually is easily the best romantic comedy ever for two reasons: 1. it is actually like, ten romantic comedies, all wrapped up in one. 2. it’s english. i’ve been feeling lately that pretty everything we do as americans would be a lot better if we were english. well, that’s not entirely true. i guess i mean to say that…

i kind of totally super wish i could have gone on that winterbreaktacular thing. hanging out with my friends all night, feeling comfortable as i struggle to snowboard among peers during the day. really, just a perfect situation for me. i hope they do it again next year, or at least something similar maybe that i can join in on.…
