Day 12: A song you want played at your wedding

Okay, so my plan to watch "Witches of the Mist" "The Lightning Thief" and "Inception" in one night worked great!

Well, sort of.

First, I watched "Witches of the Mist" on the computer while my parents began Inception on the TV. It was only half an hour, so then I started "The Lightning Thief when that was over. About halfway through, I stopped and watched the second half of Inception upstairs.

Yeah, so Inception finished around 11:30, and I went to bed brain dead and confused. And I dreamed about Medusa and cornbread.


Don't worry, we have the Inception DVD and I have The Lightning Thief on the computer so I can actually watch the actual full movies sometime.

Okay, on to the post.

I want Star Wars music, but Across the Stars is too sad. At my funeral would be good for that song. So most likely, "The Throne Room."

Non Star Wars, I love the song "They Say It's Wonderful" from Annie Get Your Gun.


"Wedding Day at Trouldhaugen" by my favorite composer, Edvard Grieg:

Anyways, Inception was a good movie. The Lightning Thief, not as good. I didn't like it. I tried to avoid comparing it to the book, but even by itself I thought it was pretty poor. The characters were completely different, both inside and out. The only good part was Luke. The Luke in the movie was pretty awesome. But they took out:
Clarisse
Mr. D
The Oracle
All the campers
:( And what they didn't take out, they changed drastically.
Oh, and lets just say you won't understand the Wikipedia article on Inception until you've actually seen the movie. I totally recommend Inception though.

I still love Percy Jackson! And Nico! :)

  1. I love the songs!! ;D

    My friend told me that Percy Jackson is TOTALLY different from the book. I hate it when they do that....change the book and turn it into a movie! I think the story itself would be awesome as a movie, without taking anyone or any elements out!! ;)

  2. I didn't like the Percy Jackson movie much either. They totally ruined Annabeth.

  3. I really liked the Lightening Thief (Percy is...to put it simply: hot), but I don't like the books. xD Guess I'm weird. And Hades amused me.

    The Vitamin String Quartet's tribute to 1979. Absolute beauty personified.

my fangirl obsessions go in cycles...this week, it's totally Heroes of Olympus/Percy Jackson(again)

There's this amazing artist on deviantart...burdge-bug...who does AMAZING Percy Jackson, Hunger Games, Harry Potter, Maximum Ride, and even HOWL'S MOVING CASTLE fanart. Now, we need to get her to read Artemis Fowl...XD.

Anyways, here are some of my favorites of hers.

eeeeeeeeeeeeee
I kind of want to pull a Ms. Black and blast Jason right off the tapestry. There's some speculation to whether or not Annabeth will be on the Argo II. I kind of don't want her to be, so Nico can join instead. Then again, if Nico is already in Rome(as speculated at the end of Neptune) there's still room.  GAH RR WHY MUST YOU TORMENT US SO



































love this scene...Senatus Populusque Romanus FTW.

Which do you think is cooler? Camp Half Blood or Camp Jupiter? Camp Jupiter definitely has a more efficient way of doing things(separating by cohort instead of parentage, sending large groups instead o…

Ciel Phantomhive vs. Artemis Fowl

Don't laugh. XD
The similarities between the two characters are so distinct and obvious that comparison is inevitable for anyone who's read/watched both series. I seriously thought when I first noticed Black Butler(more popularly referred to as Kuroshitsuji) that it was literally an anime adaption of Artemis Fowl.  Other people have read Artemis Fowl and thought "CIEL HAS A CLONE??!?"
So I thought I'd outline some of the differences and analyze who would win. XD
Similarities:
Appearance:  This is the first similarity, and one of the most major, because if they didn't look so darn alike I don't think the comparison would have been as striking. The above picture of Artemis is a fanart, because there aren't really any good pictures of Artemis, and the manga style makes it more obvious. They are both from the British Isles and have black hair and blue eyes. Both of them lose/change/switch an eye resulting in two different colors. 
Circumstance: They both s…

updates on life(aka excuses to post tumblr gifs)

If I had to describe my life in one word right now, it'd be cold. Brr.


Let's see..what's happening?

I got my back bend kickover from le ground in acro. It's awesome. :) I never thought I'd be able to do it XD

Of course, it's not with straight legs(yet). And I don't hit my splits in the middle. Come to think of it, it's actually sort of a back flop-over.



I read Skeleton Key and Eagle Strike(next two Alex Rider books) last night. The series has gotten better, but it still has the same problems. Just like Suzanne Collins makes the simplest events seem chilling and scary, the numerous random deaths in Alex Rider are just like "meh...whatever."

They all still have similar plots. Such as:

1. The book opens with some sort of mysterious circumstance. Usually an assasination or an exchange where one of the members gets stabbed in the back(sometimes literal, sometimes not) and killed. Either way, someone usually dies.
2. Alex Rider is hanging out drinkin…
