That meme where you guess what movie the quote is from:
1. And it's always there, in the lower right hand corner, just waiting to suck.
2. Anyone who wants to be a can't-hack-it pantywaist who wears their mama's bra, raise your hand.
3. Oh, I saw... Very American. Fire enough bullets and hope to hit the target. League of Extraordinary Gentlemen
4. I know you. If I were blind I'd know what you are. The Last Unicorn
5. I think we miss that touch so much, that we crash into each other, just so we can feel something. Crash
6. There's a 30% chance that it's already raining! Mean Girls
7. Look, we all go way back and uh, I owe you from the thing with the guy in the place and I'll never forget it.
8. Okay... You know, all I'm sayin' here, is one of us might need a little nap. Dogma
9. No, I'm not an American. I'm a nymphomaniac.
10. I believe in love. Not just getting it, but giving it. I think that if you're able to love someone, even if they don't know it, even if they can't love you back, then it's worth it. Gosford Park


Sorry to [livejournal.com profile] pyroclasticgrub and [livejournal.com profile] numensule about punking out on dinner tonight. Mom's leaving tomorrow (just for a say or two) and she wanted to have dinner out with me. To talk.

She always makes it sound so serious, but really, it's the same conversation we always have- I explain what I'm doing at school and how I'll probably be in scool in some form or another for the next five years of my life (including the year off I want to take to try and earn at least some money for the future). We discussed our next round of home improvements (eavestroughs and new flooring) and how in debt we are. And we are. I'm a little worried, actually, but mom says it's not that bad and we've actually got a handle on it.

So for the S&B tomorrow, who's coming? [livejournal.com profile] numensule, are you coming, and if so are you sleeping over again? Because I can take the bus in with you in the morning, assuming I wake up in time.


I recced this to [livejournal.com profile] fairestcat, and now I'm reccing it to everyone: Roundabout, by [livejournal.com profile] casirafics Dr Who (9th Doctor/Rose) PG 13. Brilliant.


I have Novillero's cover of Ceremony stuck in my head. I'm enjoying it. :)

Just watched The Parting of the Ways, and oh man with the crying. And yaye, David Tennant!

Now, to watch The Incredibles.

Yaye! The Chumscrubber, looks pretty good.

People often ask me what exactly it is we do in the anthro club.[livejournal.com profile] thegiantkiller, I hope you don't mind me quoting this, but. It's perfect.

[livejournal.com profile] prairiedaunTop five things said in the anthro club last year.

[livejournal.com profile] thegiantkillerOoh, that's a tough one. Because I know there were so many awesome things, and right now I can't precisely remember any of them. I remember Pam's plan to market a line of bacon-scented body products, but that was at the Halloween party at Dr. Richling's. I remember tea brewed in archbishop hats (mmm, ecclesiastical) but that was downstairs during the raffle (shortly before I walked into a door and she fixed my glasses with string). I remember Dr. MacKinnon walking by at a lot of really awkward moments, mostly when we were laughing really hard or discussing dressing him up like our little indie dolly. I know gelati baboons came up a few times. And then there was the chalkboard. And the boob-casts. And the little plastic cavemen. And the Teen Girl Squad quoting. And argh I can't wait for next year cuz it will be super super awesome!

Super awesome! So, I had a brilliant idea. Maybe two weeks before school starts, we could have a potluck dinner, maybe even in the Anthro club room. Everyone can bring a dish, and their own plates, bowls, cutlery, etc. We can have music, invite the teachers... what do you guys think?

ETA: It looks like I'm going to have to review Misery Harbour first for the [livejournal.com profile] nikolaj_fans community. Dammit! Okay. I'm going to need a pad of paper (or a laptop), a bottle of liquor and moral support.

Fantastic Four was awesome.

Plus afterwards, Stuart and I stole popcorn. That someone left behind and hadn't touched.

Possibly gross, but you can't beat the taste of ill-gotten popcorn.

political satire AND Harry Potter spoiler mockage )

I seriously just had three different charities call me in a row, asking for my mom. I'm all for charity and helping other people, but sometimes it just feels ridiculous. I mean really- we don't have that much money to begin with, and we already donate a good bit to some charities. So don't try to guilt us into donating more than we can- I'm really tempted to just tell them to fuck off and screw their dying children in Africa.

Uh, wow. That was much more angry than the "Grr! People keep phoning!" post I was going to make.

I really want to go out and see a movie. I need to get out of the house today- this being a shut-in thing is beyond ridiculous. But I hate going to see movies on Friday nights- Far too many people. And that's why I won't be going to any Harry Potter things tonight either- I just wouldn't be able to handle it. I'm getting freaked out just thinking about it (yet another thing I appear to have learned from my dad.)

I hate, hate, hate the fact that they've closed down the Cinema City at Pembina- the one at McPhillips isn't open yet, and I'm not going to be able to convince people to go all the way out to Northgate. Fucking hell, the one at Pembina was always super busy; why close it down before the "super cheap seats" was finished being built? (In a location that really isn't convenient to anyone at all?) For serious- the one at Pembina was close enough to a large student population, families with small children and regular folks (and being regular Winnipeggers they'd be cheap bastards waiting for movies to be at the cheap seats. Come on Winnipeggers, you know it's true.) The theatres at Pembina probably got business from the theatres at St.Vital (how many times have we gone to St.Vital, looked at the movies, thought "no way" and made our way to Pembina?)

It just makes no sense. And I really want to see a couple of movies at the cheap seats. So maybe I'll make my way out to the other side of the city to do that.

ETA: My cousin and I are going to see Fantastic Four at 37:40 today, at St. Vital. People are welcome to show up and join us.

A History of Violence
Ice Age 2

The Brothers Grimm
King Kong

So my (hopefully) non-spoilery review of Crash:

It was good, but ultimately unsatisfying. It showed different sides of racism, and had a few characters that you actually gave a damn about. Not enough however, and there wasn't really enough of a resolution with some characters by the end, which left me feeling generally "Meh." It wasn't bad, just not overwhelmingly good.

William Fichtner was awesome in it (all three minutes), and that's the reason I went so I'm pleased. I wish he'd been given more to do- of course, he's one of those actors I'd see in anything. Waiting until The Longest Yard hits the cheap seats and still searching for a copy of Endsville (William Fichtner and Kyle Secor, yum).

Afterwards went out for ice creamand got a chocolate covered phallic symbol on a sticka monkey tail, which is a frozen bannana on a stick dipped in chocolate. Yum.

I feel insanely lucky that it's still playing somewhere, so I'm determined to go see Crash tonight at Polo Park. Would anyone like to go with me?

Speaking of WIlliam Fichtner, I'm tempted to make it a double bill and see The Longest Yard. And I'm remaining cautiously optimistic about "The Invasion".
( May. 21st, 2005 02:38 pm)
Oh yes, Corie, brilliant plan. You're feeling lonely and vulnerable so you have your cousin come over to watch movies. What do you watch?

Dawn of the Dead.

Fucking zombies. If anyone needs me, I'll be holed up in the basement with a baseball bat.

Fucking zombies.

[livejournal.com profile] cynderellie, sorry I missed you. Can you still pick my brain tomorrow?

I'm not going to go see it (I'm really, really not) (well, maybe at the cheap seats or as a rental)but I always squee a little when I see the trailer for The Longest Yard because Bill Fichtner! Eee! Am such a fangirl. Need to find someone (and the cash) to go catch Crash sometime this weekend.

It's very windy and humid. I'm hoping we have a bitchin' storm tonight. :)

I'm watching Jurassic Park.

It's at the best part, when little Timmy gets electrocuted by the ginormous fence. Hee!

"...three. *coughwheeze*"
( May. 8th, 2005 03:35 am)

Kingdom of Heaven was quite good. Orlando can act! So can Nikolaj! I would have appreciated this fact more had [livejournal.com profile] zanzibar_mcbean not decided to smack me on the back of the head at a crucial moment, causing me to miss roughly a quarter of Nik's screentime.

We went out to Tim Horton's afterwards, and I just got home. *blinks* So very, very tired.

ETA: Nik's accent is just lovely. A voice like caramel. Mmm.
( Apr. 4th, 2004 09:58 pm)
I love that movie so much. I still feel so drained, but wow. So good.

I ended up going to the 4:15 showing instead of the 12:30 one. I ate lunch at Moxies and stayed there for nearly 2 hours, reading American Gods and eating fries and a sandwhich.

Aside from not spending nearly enough time with mom today (a little in the morning, and I expect quality time later), I think today was spent exactly like my dad would have wanted me to (but oh wow, today was made for sobbing at the Eowyn-Theoden scenes. Full-body wrackiing sobs.)
( Apr. 3rd, 2004 12:55 pm)
I'm trying to ignore the extreme itchiness of my legs, because of the damn sensitive skin goes crazy every time I shave (and that's why I try not o, and end up wearing pants all summer).

No Return of the King last night, but ended up going to see Hidalgo after watching most of Sharpe's Company. I amused Shannon by grabbing her arm and squeeing when the trailer for Troy came up.

I''d like to thank the filmakers company for having Viggo wearing those pants. I would like to punch the people sitting behind us, who read aloud all of the captions. Grr.

Ok. I need to tune my drum.
