looks like there's a bollywood film you will get me to watch in theaters after all .... but then again this is totally goofy ... one could call it "hong kong curry fui"

enough said, check out the trailer and tell me it's not funny!
toastr .. you'll probably love this one too!

i've always loved this season ..... in germany christmas was always a big deal and as a child i always enjoyed the season in school and especially the last few remaining weeks the lead up to it ... everyone was always in a good mood and the festive decorations were up ... it was just very freaking cool

my first christmas in germany was a little depressing cause everyone bragged about what they got from "santa", of course when you're 6 years old you wonder what's wrong with you and why santa never came to your house .... so i investigated that little more and found it there no such thing it's your parents that leave the presents for you .... which made total sense to me even then since the muslim holidays are boring as all hell!

then once i moved to canada christmas was a little ... "bare"
i mean the decorations were up and the "shopping frenzy sales craze" was there ... but the spirit was really missing

it could be because of the amount of multicultural people who just REFUSE to take part in this festive holiday because they've got a dead beaver up their ass from when they first landed in canada! (that was sarcasm, but if you ever see these people you'll agree with me!)

so christmas really became rather depressing cause not only did i have to hear from MORE family about "how inaccurate and shitty" this holiday is ..... but i didn't have too many people i can celebrate with

since i was in high-school, no one really bothered much with christmas ... basically the spirt was more or less non existent

in 2001 i celebrated my first christmas the way you're suppose to celebrate it, with family, having FUN .... not worrying about how much you spent on presents and who bought the most expensive thing

since 2001 i was always really INTO christmas and this year mainly due to lack of time i haven't been able to fully enjoy the 3-4 weeks leading up to christmas like i usually do so i have been able to notice a lot of the christmas insanity a lot more .... the whole black friday insanity this year depressed me a little that people would go this crazy over 15% off! .... the shoot out at the toys R us, and then the traffic conditions and other insane people coming through my work doing nothing but BITCHING about christmas

was this year just really stressful or have people always been jerks like this?
is it the economy? ..... i mean gas prices went down! .... shouldn't we have a BETTER christmas this year? ... by better i don't mean spend a shit load of money ... but at least be in a good mood or cheer up and be glad we're not paying 4$/gallon

the presidential election went really well so what's the fuss? (unless you're a rightwing asshole, then of course you have the right to be a grumpy bastard for the next 4 years :D)

anyone else feeling the lack of real christmas spirt this year from others was i the only one who had the rotten luck of running into these douche nozzles who bitch about christmas?

since the weekend after thanksgiving i've been watching watching "a christmas story" at least once a day

1. it cheers me up no matter how bad of a mood i'm in
2. it sets my mood for christmas

speaking of christmas story, i made some icons .... well LOTS of icons of that awesome film :D (feel free to steal em!)

... i'm home on a monday night to watch big bang theory they freakin do a re-run!
most pathetic i don't even know what channels are what, so i sat there for 30 minutes trying to figure out which channel to turn to, just to find out it was a re-run tonight

can't wait to get dvr/tivo or whatever else records stuff for you when i have a real job
that way i can just program whatever and watch it whenever

i just thought i'd post my first failed attempt at basic cable television in america experience, hehe

last saturday we had a discussion about shitty films coming out in the near future

i was pretty tired and couldn't think of some of the crap that was coming out between now and 2011


so here's a list and my little comments under some of the really ridiculous ones

there are VERY few i'm actually looking forward to, but most of the list is pure manure!

(i've added IMDB links for those who may be in too much shock to believe it!)


religious films!

like passion of christ wasn't enough for the world to sit through

now we've got noah's ark coming up

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1117392/


followed by another version of:

david and goliath

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1095209/


when is hollywood going to learn that video games make neither money nor makes the fans happy

well instead of putting money into something more substancial we've got blood ryne 3 coming up!

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1159482/


really not looking forward to the halo movie

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0464037/

at the moment halo is going stupid crazy with their action figures (which is driving me insane cause you can't turn a corner without seeing "NEW HALO FIGURESSSS!"

getting sick of it like i'm sick every time a new Harry Potter or Twilight book comes out!


gears of war

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0990406/

another video game film .... hope it's at least decent cause the video game story line is pretty damn good

however based on previous vid. game films, this one may suck harder than Doom


?zelda

just rumours at this point, i really hope to do god they don't film it

there's no way of filming this without making it look HORRIBLE!

 

prince of persia

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0473075/

maybe they can cast fagmeister "joshua" from dragon con (you know the guy who ALWAYS does the same routine at the con)


metal gear solid

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0808372/

great game premiss, not so sure if the director (who ever that may be) is going to even understand that, hence my complete lack of confidence in this title being successful


tekken

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0411951/

if it's filmed in a serious manner, it's going to fail

if it's filmed like dead or alive, it may make it!


dance dance FUCKING revolution!

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0893400/

how do you FILM something like that?

is it just me who finds the idea of this frightening!?


devil may cry

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0932986/

really like the characters and game, and i'm afraid of what the film is going to turn out to be

it's going to be riddled with more CGI than dialogue .... and that's probably bad


castlevania

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0488982/

loved the idea of the film since i was 8 years old

then i read that paul w.s. anderson was attached to the project and i abandoned all hope

sylvain white is directing it ... but he's black! ... he directed "stomp the yard" ..... a hibbitty hoppy flick! .... who thinks it's a good idea to give him a story that takes place in the year 1691, a period film about a vampire hunter  ........ aaaaaaaaaaah


silent hill 2

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0938330/

no director listed yet, and if anyone with brains would let one man direct it .... it should always have been david fucking lynch .... but that's never going to happen .... instead someone like Uwe Boll (director of classics such as cabin fever, in the name of the king, and other trash cinema) will most likely get his hands on it


the legend of spyro (the fucking dragon!)

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1133604/

i'm out of words for this one!


spy hunter

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0382315/

of course! ... say no more.... paul w.s. anderson!!!


Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0891592/

i guess hollywood didn't learn from the first van-damme version, so here's another one, yay!


warcraft

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0803096/

 

could turn out well if someone writes it well, but fantasy films are tricky!

unless you've got peter jackson's crew doing it, i'm doubtful and not hopeful
however, what's most likely going to happen is that the previews are going to sound like this:

<read this with the voice of the guy who does all the previews>
"it was a matter of time ... in a distant world ... another world ... another time ... when man was not the only one to rule blizzard servers ...a level 49 team of american underdogs had to take matters in their own hands ... and ..... LEVEL UP the courage and rise up against the deadliest japanese WoW clan the world has ever known ..... <cue in action music used in ALIENS> ... this summer ..... IT .. IS .... WAAAAR!!!!"


based on the previews i might go see it .. but if it looks like eragon or beowulf (2007) i'll pass

the sims: the movie
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1042380/
is this worse than dance dance revolution the movie? ... i can't predict!

these are half the titles i'm going to post for now cause i'm honestly tired and need to get to be

i also find it sad that there SO many bad films coming out and i'm tired of typing about it!

bad list of films between now and 2011 .... to be continued!

Michelle's cat Baka, passed away at approximately 19:13 PM today.

 

About a week ago he started to eat less than he usually would, but he always had this habit of just eating a little at time. So we were monitoring how much he was eating and every day it was less. So we tried to give him his treats and at first he ate those without any problems until last Tuesday night when Michelle tried to give him a few and he just licked them and left them on the floor. Which is when I started to worry.

 

Last time Baka was sick was November of 2002, where we had to take him to the emergency room cause he was having UTI type issues. After 6 weeks of battle we fixed him up and he had been find since.

 

With him being only about 9-10 years of age I really didn't think this was a serious enough problem when we took him Wednesday morning, also when the vet looked at him she didn't seem too concerned about him, from what she said it sounded like she'd be able to help him out. The one thing she said after checking him physically, that freaked my shit out was "this is the tip of the iceberg" ... meaning once she does blood work there would be a million things wrong with him.

 

Unfortunately that ended up being the case, his kidneys either failed because of his constipation problems, or his kidneys were failing causing the constipation problems which lead him to not wanting to eat and further breaking down of his system.

 

Anyway, I guess when it's time to go, it's time to go and nothing we can say or do to prevent that. My only regret is that I was stuck at my shitty ass job instead of being with my cat, and that I didn't get to say good-bye to him in the hopes that I'd see him again.

 

Most of you who know Michelle, may know how close she was Baka, however I'm very proud of her for handling it as well as she is.  I think this is hitting me almost harder because I wasn't home all day, and found out at work through text message.  I hate my job so damn much because I couldn't even take time off for something like this or even be on the phone too long without people getting pissy at work!

 

The other thing, not only is Baka the first cat I've lost myself, but he's one of a few cats all of us have lost this year alone. I'm asking for ONE thing for Christmas this year, no more cat trauma please! Last year, I handled three funerals better than the passing of our cats this year (yea screw people, especially relatives!).

 

I hope Baka is at peace, and if the whole 9 lives thing is true, I better see him again (even if he comes back as a zombie cat without teeth, that'd be fine with me too).

 

 

"Someone once told me that time was a predator that stalked us all our lives. I rather believe that time is a companion who goes with us on the journey and reminds us to cherish every moment, because it will never come again. What we leave behind is not as important as how we've lived ... "

- Jean Luc Picard, Star Trek: Generations
