…was the shizz.
I saw Cloverfield yesterday. It’s basically Godzilla with a different monster and nauseating camera effects. It met all of my expectations and then some. I thoroughly enjoyed it from start to finish.
The movie’s graphics, from the flying bullets to the giant monster itself, was incredibly convincing. I haven’t seen such convincing computer generation since The Lord of the Rings movie trilogy. The set for the movie was also quite awesome. I mean, seriously, nothing is cooler in a monster movie than the head of the Statue of Liberty lying in the middle of a street.
Overall, the movie was very realistic, despite the obvious fiction elements. The camera, taking the place of a REAL camcorder held by one of the characters trying to run through Manhattan. It made the movie so much more convincing. I DID find the inserts of little clips from Rob’s day odd, but it still worked out.
Since when was a bowling party supposed to be a lot of fun? I guess ever since Saturday. Mmm… if you read Chris’ … not-so-recent (well sort of) entry/post/whatever you call it then you’d be able to figure out that Saturday, January 19, 2008 waasss a lot of fun. Or at least for me. XD Partly him I suppose.
Well… I really wanted to blog (am I using this verb correctly?) about this day so I might as well get it out of the way before I start to forget or get too lazy to write it up (although I’m pretty lazy myself right now.)
I don’t remember how the day started off. (See?! I’m already forgetting…) Buuuut I know while I was getting ready to– wait I need to explain what’s happening first/going to happen, don’t I? Foreshadowing…
Woot! Today was fun. I’m tired though, seeing as I didn’t get home until 9:45. My, my was it an eventful day though.
First day of school!! Woot! Well, not really. The classes were sort of boring, but more fun than usual, oddly enough.
In my first period, which is art, we were discussing three-dimensional shapes. I felt retarded, yet smart. We were listing the two shapes that triangles can be made into. Someone said the obvious, pyramid. Then the teacher asked for one more shape. Being the overly-complicating idiot I am, I shouted out “TRIANGULAR PRISM!” Everyone shut up and stared. The teacher even asked me to draw it on the board, since apparently she didn’t know what it was. Well, I drew it, taking in a little “Ohhhh” from the class and the teacher herself, and sat down. She asked for one more, and it popped it my head, so I said “OH!!! CONE!” and she gave me a relieved look, as I finally got the right answer.
I might have to rename these “periodical” blogs. I just can’t keep it up daily sometimes, as you might have noticed. Don’t want to keep everyone expecting one everyday… Whoever the hell is reading this blog at all, that is. I will try, though.
I failed the crap out of my finals! Well, that’s what I get for barely studying. Ah well, there’s always next semester. That is, if I survive the upcoming report card days. Ah, life!
Certain things this weekend have kept me alive though. I actually got invited to help at Casey’s niece’s birthday party by her mother, who I thought utterly hated me. Well, at first I didn’t give an answer, but last minute I called and asked if they still needed help. Well, she asked Casey if she wanted me to come, so she let me come to the bowling alley. She did not like me much. Ah well. Casey’s sister offered to take me to their house since I had nothing to do. There, we had a lot of fun. xD Cool, yet sadly, it was the most time we’ve ever spent together next to AX. Should I feel sad about that?
Well… I haven’t posted a new entry in a while yet again. Sadly, I can’t remember everything that happened. So I’ll just list down the important things. Then again, those “important” things qualify as those that I actually remember and have the patience to write about.
So what happened since… wait let me check the date… Saturday, December 15. Well yeah if you can tell Chris’ modem got fixed. Quite ironic though. He gets a new modem (or something like that) a day or so before Christmas vacation starts. Thing is, I already had a whole list of anime I’d watch while being all by my lonesome. Well… I guess that idea is thrown out the window. But I already started a bunch of new series so I HAVE to finish them. DDx So unfair!!! Oh well… it’s better to have someone thar instead of being all alone watching anime and fueling the fire which burns a hole in my wallet once I step into the great sanctuary known as AnimeExpo.
