Disney Whine

Every time I watch Who Framed Roger Rabbit I remember why I hate Disney so much. Don’t get me wrong WFRR is a great film even if it deviates from the book to a lousy extreme, but it was maybe the crowning achievement of the now defunct Touchstone in my opinion. Superbly drawn, beautiful animated, nostalgia abounds in that film and Industrial Light and Magic’s touch up of the animation gave it amazing realism and softness – they couldn’t do it that well today. Why? Because my beloved Disney sucks balls now.

I should kick Eisner in his fat, bureaucrat ass for this. He’s made Disney the Direct-To-Video-Sequel king and practically torn down Disneyland, Walt’s baby. With all the money they spent on California Adventure, don’t you think they could have repaired some of the rides and attractions in Disneyland or used that money to, you know, not have to jack up the price of a hamburger to eight hundred and fifty dollars, nine hundred if you want a napkin?

The quality is gone, their bread and butter is rehashing their classics into bullshit like Cinderella II and expecting us to shell out for half-assed CGI productions that they could have, should have, done with hand-drawn animation and now studios like Dreamworks and Sony are beating their asses with gorgeous hand-drawn work and some of the best CGI film you’ll ever want to see ( Surf’s Up, anyone? ). All the while Disney is trying, scrambling even, desperately to win back their audience with the long awaited Frog Princess – the first hand drawn Disney film since the low-budget, high gross labor of love and media darling Lilo and Stitch – this from the company that DISMANTLED their hand drawn animation department and started doing their animation outsourced to Asia and I think Australia. Now they have to eat a dick, because I’m pretty sure Frog Princess is being hand drawn right here in the U.S. by a Disney animation department. I hope they kicked Iger and his gargoyles out of the 7 Dwarves building. Why, again, do they need that extra office space?

 

Feeling Lousy

Argh, my back is killing me. My muscles, dude, just… argh. I haven’t slept in forever and ever, which means now I’m going crazy and all I wanna do is sleep lol, but I’ll be damned if I miss seeing Eagle Eye tonight – I’m ready to kill a few people for me missing The Dark Knight as it is. Glad I got to see it, but would have rather seen it in the theater here, you know? But let me tell you, it’s impossible to get $10 in cash and the theater here is so teeny tiny that they only accept cash, so it’s always a big situation just to go out to the movies.

The snacks cost too much, no fountain drinks, too many hillbillies, they always screw up the movie plus they give us, I shit you not, carnival style raffle tickets instead of actual film stubs, so it’s… kind of stupid to even call yourself a theater if you’re acting like a Mormon church social lol. Pot luck, anyone?

Selena Gomez – Who Are You?

Can somebody tell me something? Can somebody tell me why the hell people insist on asking Selena Gomez her opinion of every damn thing ever? Who cares what she thinks of Miley Freaking Cyrus or her older boyfriend, and why am I getting emailed by Us Magazine about it every fucking day? Hello? I did *not* sign up for that stupid mailing list, and I’ve tried thrice ( three times for those of you who don’t speak Faith, lol ) to get off the list but they’re not having any of it as it turns out.

Every other thing I ever hear is about that chick these days. Who the hell is she? Who’s Nick Jonas? Do you know, out of everyone they mention during all their rantings about her the only person’s name I recognize is Shia LaBeouf? Like, they’re trying to nail her on dating this Nick, and she’s doing it but she doesn’t want to admit it. How do I know? Because whenever they say “Nick Jonas” to her, she says “Shia LaBeouf” – every single time if you can believe the media. First off, who cares about her? She’s VERY pretty, I agree! But what does she even do? Sing? Act? Who the hell is she?

Secondly, and more importantly, if you ever want to find out if your friend likes some guy and she doesn’t want to admit it, ask her directly. If she says “You know who’s hot? That Dave from Pop Copy.” you’ve nailed her, lol. At least she’s talking about LaBeouf – anything to get him in the news I for something other than the pick up crash situation, eh?

Stupid Movie Goers!

Can someone please explain to me how Beverly Hills Chihuahua is the number one movie in America for the second week in a row? How is this possible? Or, I should say, how does this crap keep happening? I swear at the feet of Loki’s gym teacher that everyone in this stupid country has it in for decent films. I’m not entirely sure how the bimbos and rednecks can manage to keep going to see crap like this and Twilight, while simultaneously voting gems like Eagle Eye off the island?

Some of the best of the big budget movies of the last decade were panned by critics for no apparent reason, I think Eagle Eye is just the newest in a long line. The Pirates of the Caribbean franchise where every film was ripped to shreds, only to become the blue eyed child once the next sequel was released. Tim Burton’s re-adaption of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory which was torn apart by fans of a shitty former adaption on the grounds that they’d seen the Gene Wilder version first. And, of course, the fun and very fitting Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull that has more fanboys bitching than Wesley Crusher.

I don’t get it. Why do people praise idiocy and utter tardation? Why do people ash can perfectly good, engaging and fun films in favor of pure crap? Why do we need 800 Highschool Musical movies? Someone, please, help me out here. :S

A Hole In The World

I can’t believe I’m going to say this, in fact I may even deny it later because it’s horrifying to me, but I firmly and totally believe that Lindsay Lohan is right.

I was over at Lindsay Daily, trying to find the admin’s email, when I read THIS. I can’t believe it, Lindsay sounds so… level headed, lol. Now, I’m not a big fan of Lindsay – in fact, I don’t really pay much attention to her (she’s pretty, but there ain’t a lot to her, imo) but when someone’s right, you say so, even if you’d like to see them dropped into that hole full of coffins from Angel. Yes, I am a nerd.

It was some of the responses on the blog that caught me off guard, and here;s my two cents about the whole thing as commented on the post:

Uh, I’m sorry, I don’t remember the act of deluded Christian sin being something enforceable by a democratic government as an actual crime. If it were, it would be against the law to lie, talk back to your mother and wish you had your neighbor’s car. Granted, I generally don’t comment on fansites but this caught my eye and when I read through it I found myself agreeing with a lot of what Lindsay had to say.

Just because it’s in the bible, -and yes I know this is an unpopular opinion- doesn’t mean it’s right, either. This is the same book that was used to condemn ‘witches’, to justify black slavery, to steal land and kill off natives and even to condemn the Jews ( oh yeah, look it up ).

The bible is 2000 years old, even with the best intentions it was written before democracy, before women’s lib, when slavery was A-OK and women/children were the property of men. Just the notion that we can take anything more than implied wisdom from this book is ridiculous, but to each his own, the only issue I’ve got with it is that it’s used to force other people into a state of second class citizenship by taking away their rights, including the right to love, be with and marry whoever you choose. You can’t believe in true love and believe every word of the bible at the same time – it’s just not possible unless you’re really deluded. I’m in no way against the bible, I just think people should start using their noggins. If you believe in God, and believe your God is a loving deity, then judge not, dudes, he said it for a reason. See? He knew we couldn’t be trusted, lol.

To be honest, I don’t really follow Lindsay’s career or life, etc., but I have heard that she’s come out about dating a woman, and I think her fans if no one else should be supportive of her. Oh, and I agree with the statements about Palin – that woman scares the bejeesus out of me.

Honestly, shouldn’t this be common sense by now? I can’t be a ‘maverick’, here.

Tired of Bossman

I am so sick and tired of Bossman being at my house all the damn time. I’m tired of working all night then having to stay awake all day because he just won’t leave, and on top of all that he’s Bossman, what can I really do about it? It’s driving me insane, he thinks we have this great friendship even though I’ve made myself clear – I don’t like him, I can’t stand his politics and I think he can shove his God where the sun don’t shine, I don’t want it in my government but he laughs that off as if I must be kidding or something. I’m gonna kill him, lol.

Gossip Folks

Ugh, I’m so tired of trusting people then finding out down the road that I should have murdered them in their sleep, lol. I trusted a friend with information, in confidence ( and they knew it! ), and the first thing they do is blab it to just the wrongest person of all time. What gets me is that they aren’t even sorry, and because of this crap they may have severely hurt their own reputation because they can’t keep their mouth shut.

Quarterlife.

’m having a whiney moment of mid-life-ness, even though I’m at quarterlife. I’m always having mid-life-ness, though, I think it comes from being isolated in my current life. I’m still the best of friends with almost everyone I was close with in my teens, but they were lucky enough to get out of this town, so even though we run up our phone bills, send letters and presents, and talk every single day it’s hard not to feel seperate from them and my youth.

See, my parents were more than strict. My sister and I lived in a really abusive environment, and we weren’t allowed out of the house most of the time, let alone to run around and do teenage stuff, so I think that for that reason I’ve never been able to mature past the late 90s. That, and I can’t stand the 00s, so far they’ve been a bust, don’t you think?

But due to my parents stealing Laota and my youth, I tend to feel displaced and very much like I’ve missed my entire life. Because of this I live in a perpetual state of 18 years old, where I know what year it is, who’s President ( though I wish I didn’t ), and I’m quite able to function at my job and in my everyday life, but I’m never able to move past the time that I missed. I’m very much like a little child who doesn’t want to go to bed early in fear that, when the fun happens, he’ll miss it.

That’s exactly it. The reason I move from mania to mania, I think, is my need to be there for the fun. It’s so easy for me to get wrapped up in something, like making and carrying bento, horror films, websites, etc., and it’s the reason I can still listen to Champagne Supernova as if it were a brand new song, no matter how many times I’ve heard it – it’s because I’m looking for something to fill a life I feel is gone already. I want to have something, anything, to hold onto now that my youth is slipping away from me, but I’ve felt my youth leaving since my mid teens. I want something of my youth, I want to relive that space in time again and forsake any instruction from or fear of my abusive, horrible parents – I want to live, even if it’s only for a little while

Freezie McGee

How is it freezing in here and sunny outside? It’s always freezing in here to some degree or another and it has the effect of making me rant on my blog instead of recoup which is what I’m trying to do, lol. I’m also trying to get non-support work done from this freezing little room and drink a whole Dr. Pepper by myself that I had to have because Harrison Ford is on it, and at 65 he’s still frigging gorgemous but I’m getting off my point, lol.

My hands are freezing, though, it’s driving me crazypants and I can’t turn on the heater because it’ll be way too hot in here. I need cut-off gloves or something, because *freezing*, and it’s making it hard to even type.

So Damn Tired

You know, some people just hate change. And honestly, I’m tired of it because those people bitch 24/7 about things not changing instead of just sucking it up and doing something about it, but then when change comes along they freak out and want everything to stay the same. I realize I’m making no sense, but MEH.

I’m so tired of talking to people who want to be extraordinary so long as they don’t have to stop being mediocre to do it. I’m so tired of dealing with people who go along to get along and yet want special treatment, as if they’re a star or something. And more than that, I’m tired of typing this because my arthritis is killing me!
