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.

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…

Howl's Moving Castle book analysis

“I feel ill. I'm going to bed, where I may die.”
― Howl, upon having a cold. I've decided to call them "book analysis" because they're not really reviews that tell you how much I liked the book, rather,  me taking the book apart and looking at different aspects of it for my own entertainment. Read on. Also, read Howl's Moving Castle.







This is the original cover of Howl's Moving Castle and I have got to say it is the UGLIEST thing I have ever seen. I like the new one much better.

Ahem.


First of all, I should point out that Howl's Moving Castle is a children's book. However, I like to hold all books I read to the same standard, after all, they're written by adults.

I had biased expectations of Howl's Moving Castle from the start, because I kept hearing from several sources how amazing, how fantastic, how hilarious and how romantic the book was, and hearing the perfectly gorgeous soundtrack by Joe Hizazi(something or other.)

Howl's Movi…
