This is also probably going to land me in Hell... but at least I'll be warm!

Oh holy shit
It's really fucking snoooooooowing
I cannot see the yard for all the snow
There sits my car
In a snowdrift that is grooooooowing
Does it matter? There is no place to go

It's really cold
And I hate being stuck inside
I hope that our
Power will stay oooonnnn

Fall,
Little flakes,
Somewhere else
If you please

O whyyyy can't I
Live in another state?
Somewhere
Further noooooooorth
Where they
Can handle snow



We now return you to your regularly scheduled f-list. Thank you, and good day.

BACON

Wednesday, 16 September 2009 19:43
preussisch_blau: (nomnomnom (Charlie--- Life))
Dinner tonight? Fucking delicious. It involved bacon. There was no way it could have gone wrong with bacon involved... especially since it was MAPLE bacon. Om nom nom.

So, of course, there was the prior debate of what to have. This debate was conducted at the grocery store, as we really lack in the "dinner foods other than hot dogs and pasta" department. Neither Mom nor I had any ideas. Then there was a little voice. It went, "Bacon! Bacon! Bacon bacon bacon!" It was simply a little kid pointing out bacon to his mother. We get about five steps past, when Mom turns to me and says, "Breakfast?"

"Apparently I'm not the only one who just got a sudden craving for bacon."

Thus, we got bacon. And pancake mix. And eggs. Dinner was cooked. Nik got to clean up because he didn't cook. Oh, and I think I have several nice little burns on my hands from cast iron cookware and bacon grease (and I didn't even cook the bacon ffs). Oh well, I'll live.

A little maple syrup for the pancakes, and life was good.

(Also, seriously, for amazing pancakes from a mix: Add a few glugs of non-alcohol vanilla extract, a pinch of nutmeg, and a few shakes of cinnamon. Go easy on the oil, too. They're fluffier that way. Trust me, though. Vanilla, nutmeg, and cinnamon. Be careful with the nutmeg, though. It's easy to add too much.)

MEPS TOMORROW! MEPS TOMORROW! OH HAPPY DAY!

*DOES HAPPY DANCE*

preussisch_blau: (I believe in Harvey Dent)
[22:37:35] [livejournal.com profile] themearas: I think Harvey's in Arkham :\ his 'death' ? not even convincing
[22:37:55] [livejournal.com profile] alouette_sparra: Yeah, but Eckhart says he was told that Dent was dead
[22:38:02] [livejournal.com profile] alouette_sparra: So he wouldn't be in the next film
[22:38:39] [livejournal.com profile] themearas: Well...I think Eckhart is a L-I-A-R~!
[22:38:40] [livejournal.com profile] themearas: lol
[22:38:59] [livejournal.com profile] alouette_sparra: Personally, I hope all of this is just to get everyone thinking "Oh, no Two-Face" and then there's just this ominous PING and someone dies, and then Two-Face is all "HAI U GAIZ~! GUESS WHOZ BAK?"
[22:39:20] [livejournal.com profile] themearas: lulz
[22:39:27] [livejournal.com profile] alouette_sparra: And Batman and Gordon are all "WTF?! You should be in Arkham!"
[22:40:13] [livejournal.com profile] alouette_sparra: And Two-Face is all "LOLNo. I pwnd those stupid doctors and guards. With my bare hands. Because I'm THAT awesome."
[22:41:22] [livejournal.com profile] alouette_sparra: In the background, I'm thinking Justin Timberlake's "Sexy Back". For a touch of irony. >>
[22:41:39] [livejournal.com profile] alouette_sparra: OH GOD THE CRACK FUZZIES ARE EATING MY SOUL
[22:42:01] [livejournal.com profile] themearas: XD
[22:42:11] [livejournal.com profile] themearas: >:3 *cheers them on* >>
[22:42:42] [livejournal.com profile] alouette_sparra: Oh, you WOULD cheer them on.
[22:42:47] [livejournal.com profile] themearas: XD of course
[22:43:08] [livejournal.com profile] alouette_sparra: Okay, so we have "Sexy Back" playing.
[22:43:51] [livejournal.com profile] themearas: lol I think somebody should make a video of Bruce/Harvey, set to Avril Lavinge's song 'Girlfriend' set from Bruce's POV
[22:44:15] [livejournal.com profile] alouette_sparra: Which is entirely appropriate, because Two-Face is a BAMF and entirely sexy (so long as you're into serious physical deformations caused by copious quantities of petrol and FIRE, or very good at ignoring half of someone's face... maybe with strategic lighting...)
[22:44:27] [livejournal.com profile] themearas: ROFL
[22:44:40] [livejournal.com profile] alouette_sparra: ANYHOW.
[22:45:37] [livejournal.com profile] alouette_sparra: I firmly believe 'Girlfriend' must be playing in the background when Bruce and Harvey meet for the first time post-burnination with Brucey not as Batsy.
[22:47:17] [livejournal.com profile] alouette_sparra: And they totally picked the wrong song for every Harvey and Bruce interaction after that first bit of sex eyes. Especially with Rachel present. They really needed Ashlee Simpson's "Boyfriend" playing. Bruce? SO stole Rachel's boyfriend. He'll never admit it though, because he's a good guy vigilante.
[22:47:23] [livejournal.com profile] alouette_sparra: BUT I DIGRESS.
[22:48:38] [livejournal.com profile] alouette_sparra: So, once Two-Face shows up and shows off his BAMFness, we need drama. Okay, like, I dunno, he knows the coin came up heads when he flipped it for Gordon's son, so he's done that avenue. But he also knows it came up Kentucky Fried Coin side for Batman, and Batman is still alive and kicking (likely literally kicking by this point).
[22:48:54] [livejournal.com profile] alouette_sparra: So he needs to try and kill Batman.
[22:49:36] [livejournal.com profile] alouette_sparra: Meanwhile, Bruce is trying to get him to have his face fixed and seriously talk to a psychiatrist for longer than "Heads, you live. Tails, I use your own damn pen to kill you."
[22:49:57] [livejournal.com profile] alouette_sparra: Or maybe the desk or cushy couch all psychiatrists seem to have.
[22:50:07] [livejournal.com profile] alouette_sparra: Death by cushy couch. What a way to go.
[22:50:44] [livejournal.com profile] alouette_sparra: Police Report: "Cause of death: overly plush and comfortable couch. Body is in autopsy. Couch is now in the mayor's office."
[22:51:02] [livejournal.com profile] alouette_sparra: "Damn, that's one comfortable couch."
[22:51:42] [livejournal.com profile] alouette_sparra: Okay, so, you know, it only takes so long before you realise that the guy you are secretly mancrushing on is hiding a lot of things. Like where he got his scars from.
[22:51:57] [livejournal.com profile] alouette_sparra: It's like he's the Joker. No one knows where the scars are from but him.
[22:52:21] [livejournal.com profile] alouette_sparra: Also, Harvey totally killed the Joker back in Arkham when he realised he'd been played like a fiddle. BAMF. Remember that.
[22:52:31] [livejournal.com profile] themearas: XDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD
[22:52:47] [livejournal.com profile] alouette_sparra: Okay, you ARE still alive
[22:53:13] [livejournal.com profile] themearas: XD yes
[22:53:20][livejournal.com profile] themearas: I'm just reading all this and lolling
[22:53:37] [livejournal.com profile] alouette_sparra: Now, I think I was trying to put in some plot development between the sex eyes...
[22:54:43] [livejournal.com profile] alouette_sparra: Okay. We have Harvey all, "WTF, Bruce? You're all sneakinz around and havin suspicious scars. I'M THE TRAGICALLY SCARRED ONE IN THIS RELATIONSHIP."
[22:54:45] [livejournal.com profile] alouette_sparra: ...
[22:55:06] [livejournal.com profile] alouette_sparra: Scratch that last line. Too open about the relationship. Fanboys would never accept it.
[22:56:01] [livejournal.com profile] alouette_sparra: Change to "I'M THE TRAGICALLY SCARRED ONE IN THIS ENTIRELY PLATONIC ACQUAINTANCESHIP *winkwinknudgenudgesexeyeswhicharekindofcreepygiventhelackoflefteyelid*
[22:56:03] [livejournal.com profile] alouette_sparra: "
[22:56:48] [livejournal.com profile] alouette_sparra: And Bruce is all, "You no like? What are you dense? Are you retarded or something? I'm the Goddamn Ba-RUCE WAYNE. >> GTFO."
[22:57:09] [livejournal.com profile] alouette_sparra: So Harvey leaves and now he's pissed at Batman AND Bruce.
[22:57:23] [livejournal.com profile] alouette_sparra: And Bruce is like, "Ohshit. Fucked that up."
[22:58:11] [livejournal.com profile] alouette_sparra: Harvey kills some corrupt policemen or hospital workers or something. Therapy you know. Cheaper than seeing psychiatrists and killing them with their cushy couches. Just pay the price of bullets.
[22:58:28] [livejournal.com profile] alouette_sparra: Maybe taxi fare too.
[22:59:03] [livejournal.com profile] alouette_sparra: Flip the coin at the end of every ride though. Gives the driver good reason not to run screaming about who the fuck he's driving around. Either that or he's dead, and dead men tell no tales.
[22:59:54] [livejournal.com profile] alouette_sparra: So Bruce is all "Shitshitshit, I’ve sent him on a coin-flipping rampage. And he got a gun. And bullets. And taxi fare. Where's my wallet, Alfred?"
[23:00:23] [livejournal.com profile] alouette_sparra: Two-Face has no problems spending Bruce's money to fuel his coin-flipping rampage, for the record.
[23:02:10] [livejournal.com profile] alouette_sparra: Well, now Bruce has got to go all batshit on Harvey... er... Two-Face... er... MR TRAGICALLY SCARRED FACE MAN DENT. Literally. Cause he's Batman and... okay, bad joke. Am not Joker. People will not laugh at my bad jokes to keep me happy because I won't kill them if I'm not happy
[23:02:33] [livejournal.com profile] alouette_sparra: So! He goes after Two-Face, and does many heroic things to stop him.
[23:03:00] [livejournal.com profile] alouette_sparra: Also, this is all happening on Tuesday, February 22nd. Because I said so. In ode to some of the campier comic books and cartoon episodes.
[23:03:36] [livejournal.com profile] alouette_sparra: BUT THERE WILL BE NO SPLIT SUITS, DAMNIT, BECAUSE HARVEY TWO-FACE IS A BAMF AND BAMFS ARE MEN (and women) OF TASTE, GODDAMNIT.
[23:04:38] [livejournal.com profile] alouette_sparra: Especially none of those zebra striped and hot pink and leopard print messes.
[23:05:05] [livejournal.com profile] alouette_sparra: And this movie will now be interrupted by hungreh hungreh lolkittens. Please enjoy your popcorn during the intermission.
[23:05:14] [livejournal.com profile] alouette_sparra: If the lolkittens don't eat it first.
[23:06:05] [livejournal.com profile] themearas: ...
[23:07:00] [livejournal.com profile] themearas: Well.
[23:07:10] [livejournal.com profile] themearas: I might have to save up my money for that.
[23:08:07] [livejournal.com profile] themearas: >>
[23:08:53] [livejournal.com profile] themearas: "Shitshitshit, I’ve sent him on a coin-flipping rampage. And he got a gun. And bullets. And taxi fare. Where's my wallet, Alfred?"
[23:08:58] [livejournal.com profile] themearas: LMAO
[23:15:42] [livejournal.com profile] themearas: win
[23:15:49] [livejournal.com profile] themearas: :-( I know, I iz boring
[23:25:33] [livejournal.com profile] alouette_sparra: No, I had to try and convince the runt to eat
[23:25:34] [livejournal.com profile] alouette_sparra: sorry
[23:25:52] [livejournal.com profile] themearas: it's okay
[23:25:55] [livejournal.com profile] themearas: what runt?
[23:26:06] [livejournal.com profile] alouette_sparra: runt kitten :<
[23:26:12] [livejournal.com profile] alouette_sparra: She's like half the size of her siblings
[23:26:21] [livejournal.com profile] themearas: D: oh noez...
[23:26:24] [livejournal.com profile] themearas: poor kitteh D:
[23:26:42] [livejournal.com profile] alouette_sparra: Mmhmm... So, we got her kitten milk supplement to try and get her to at least drink nutrients.
[23:27:11] [livejournal.com profile] alouette_sparra: Anyhow, we were talking movie that you'd save up money to see. Obviously this idea is win
[23:28:03] [livejournal.com profile] alouette_sparra: Now, the main problem is, how do we wrap up all this plot? I mean, Batman could just prove he's as much as a BAMF as Two-Face and send him back to Arkham... but he already got out of there once. With his bare hands and a silver dollar.
[23:29:01] [livejournal.com profile] themearas: Uh...
[23:29:02] [livejournal.com profile] themearas: Hm.
[23:29:24] [livejournal.com profile] alouette_sparra: He could reveal himself to be Bruce Wayne. Fifty-fifty chance of Harv coming to his senses and realising that his lover... er... BEST PLATONIC ACQUAINTAINCE EVAR really does care about him and really was upset about Rachel and did his best to keep the Joker's plot from going through.
[23:30:31] [livejournal.com profile] alouette_sparra: Or, he could pretend that he feels that way and then during teh buttsex... I mean, MANLY MALE BONDING OF MANLINESS... WITH MORE TESTOSTERONE 'CAUSE IT'S NOT MANLY ENOUGH... totally be all, "Heads, I let you live long enough to come. Tails..."
[23:30:39] [livejournal.com profile] themearas: ROFL
[23:30:42] [livejournal.com profile] themearas: XDDDD
[23:30:52] [livejournal.com profile] themearas: ..I really wish this would happen
[23:31:42] [livejournal.com profile] alouette_sparra: Of course, third answer being they both die. Like Romeo and Juliet. LIKE MANLY MALE PLATONIC ACQUAINTANCES WHO ARE MANLY MEN OF MANLINESS.
[23:31:52] [livejournal.com profile] alouette_sparra: Gotta remember to keep the fanboys happy
[23:31:58] [livejournal.com profile] themearas: But of course :3
[23:32:18] [livejournal.com profile] alouette_sparra: Except now Two-Face is unhappy because it's an odd number of solutions. He prefers even numbers. They're more fair and balanced.
[23:33:02] [livejournal.com profile] alouette_sparra: I would like to remind our dear Mr TRAGICALLY SCARRED FACE MAN DENT that technically, the second answer is two answers, so I needed a third to have four answers, thus, the even number is preserved.
[23:33:37] [livejournal.com profile] alouette_sparra: And now he's flipping his coin to see if he just gets a headache from that sentence or if he inflicts his headache on me. Talk about indecisive.
[23:33:54] [livejournal.com profile] alouette_sparra: OW! FRICKEN SILVER DOLLAR! DON'T FLIP IT AT MY HEAD!
[23:34:02] [livejournal.com profile] themearas: OO
[23:34:16] [livejournal.com profile] alouette_sparra: Okay, the crack fuzzies have landed and eaten my soul AND BRAIN.
[23:34:21] [livejournal.com profile] alouette_sparra: Anyhow.
[23:34:46] [livejournal.com profile] alouette_sparra: With a few revisions, I think this could be a viable plot idea to send to Messrs Nolan.
[23:35:19] [livejournal.com profile] themearas: Meh :\ Nolan.
[23:35:43] [livejournal.com profile] alouette_sparra: Oh, icky band person?
[23:35:58] [livejournal.com profile] alouette_sparra: Oh, mind if I post our little third movie convo on my LJ?
[23:36:10] [livejournal.com profile] themearas: Yes :\ icky band person
[23:36:13] [livejournal.com profile] themearas: lol go ahead XD

HARVEY DENT '08
He's his own Vice President
preussisch_blau: (Typewriter)
Normally I dislike watching movies I enjoyed as a child. They rarely seem to withstand the test of time and remain as awesome as they seem in my memory. The special effects seem cheesy and dated, the plot is boring and I tune out during some scenes because they annoy or fail to hold my interest. Simply put, it's very rare that I continue to like a movie after rewatching it years later.

Yet, today I found myself glued to the telly when Apollo 13 came on AMC. I don't know why I decided to finally watch it again, but I'm glad I did. It's just as epic and breathtaking as it was when I was younger, and quite frankly? Even knowing exactly what happened, I was still biting my nails during some scenes, wondering if they were really going to make it or if they'd die. It's really a great piece of cinema that still grips you like that no matter how many times you see it.

Even my mum thinks it's a great movie, and she was almost nine when the events actually happened.

I can't believe it took me so long to rewatch it, really. I could go on and on about what makes it such a fucking awesome movie, but I doubt anyone wants to hear me geek about cinematography and scripting and suchlike.

All I know is this: I NEED THAT SOUNDTRACK.

Also, go watch Apollo 13. Now. I'll wait for you. Go. Watch. Now.
