I'm tempted to see the Transformers sequel just to post thereafter, "NOW, Michael Bay raped my childhood."

2188: "He's Just Not That Into You": I should actually start with a confession: I like classic and surreal romantic comedies. I'm a romantic. The more twisted, the better as long as one thing happens: he gets the girl or vice versa. This is why I thought "Slumdog Millionaire" was a good choice for Best Picture at the Oscars. This is why, though "Chasing Amy" was better in originality and intelligence in dialogue, I preferred "Zac and Miri Make a Porno". This is why I bought the DVD to this film. By many purposes, this should be at best a mediocre film. It's easy to scoff at how the characters deconstruct and dissect each movement and word to falsely surmise any hidden message. We believe what we want to believe and can be guilty of overanalyzing. We think that our crowd is above the antics of the characters in the film, but the film is applying what I call "Hollywood Hyperbole:" a bit out of proportion but the problems are real.
In my case, I envision the letter "S" in the beginning to reiterate that there were times in which the answer was simple: she just doesn't like me "that way."
Surprisingly long actor/character analyses with possible spoilers )

Overall, one must remember two things after seeing the film: (1) the less serious you take dating, the happier you will be, and (2) avoid genearalized pronouncements on how supposedly all men or all women think.

The problem with Live Journal is that we all think we are so close, but really, we know nothing about each other. Hence, I want you to ask me something you think you should know about me. Something that should maybe be obvious, but you have no idea about.

EDIT: Comments will be screened.

I was amused that some of the panic and anxiety I got from being boxed in at Diesel can be eased with a Rock-Paper-Scissors-Lizard-Spock T-shirt.

I have a weakness for whoppie pies from Steve's Snacks Bakery, particularly peanut butter/chocolate. Now I've discovered that:
1. You can order online.
2. They come in mint.
3. They sell by the dozen.

This is dangerous information to have.

1. You can ONLY answer 'Yes' or 'No'.

2. You are NOT ALLOWED to explain ANYTHING unless someone messages or comments you and asks—and, believe me, the temptation to explain some of these will be overwhelming. Nothing is exactly as it seems.

I had a pasta meal at CPK. Between that and a burger last night, I had my first meal in a week. It felt bloody good. Now I just have to feel confident enough to drink either coffee or alcohol.

2185: "Havoc": I didn't count this earlier because, to be honest, I only saw it through MrSkin. Now that I've seen the full version on IFC, I can say that I saw the best parts already. I finally found out what the film was about, and it disturbed me. It's pretty much about bored teenagers from upper-middle class families who decided to go gangsta in dress and attitude in LA, getting high and talking trash. Little do they realize the horrors of crime and poverty in real gang life. If they don't like it, they can crawl to their rich, emotionally ineffectual and numb parents.

2186: "Terminator: Salvation": I saw this while [ profile] hammercock was on a date. As I discussed with others, this film made the TV series "Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles" redundant which probably helped in its cancellation. Viewers, tired of seeing John Connor as a wishy-washy angsty teenager can embrace the character as close to the iconic savior as possible given the setting. Since the movie takes place in 2018, it is before he leads the entire resistance. It's better than T3, but not as good as the first two which doesn't say much. James Cameron set the bar high with the look and feel of the machines, the characters, and the settings. The terminators of this film are not as glossy. (They haven't had time to perfect the hyperalloy combat chassis, so steel/titanium had to be used for the clunky T-600s, Harvesters, and Hunter Killers.) Anton Yelchin nailed Kyle Reese right down to his diction.

Last night, I knew what it was like to have the digestive capacity of [ profile] hammercock, [ profile] taura_g, OR [ profile] ariesd. It sucked.

EDIT: They all have stomachs smaller than an apple, so this post was about my INABILITY to eat.

As I try to catch up with the outside world after illness-related exile, my mental reactions have been limited to:
He didn't.
He did.
She didn't.
She did.

Let's play a game called "End of the line, my Valentine." (I dare someone to guess which movie that came from.)

2183: "Kung Fu Panda": I saw this in Youtube installments. It was actually cute. I'm still trying to process Dustin Hoffman as a Red Panda master. Seriously, Oscar winners, Tony winners, and Emmy winners as CGI furry animals.

2184: "Edmond": William H. Macy goes insane. Enough said.

Apparently, I'm not 100% well. The digestive system is not a coordinated unit. My brain processes no appetite, but my stomach reacts to emptiness while my intestines are still skeptical about anything that comes through. I was ambitious and ordered a chicken dinner from Pops. I tell this tale vilely...

Miscalculating the date of [ profile] big_jewfro's party (still kicking myself, I know), [ profile] hammercock and I had two tickets to "Jerry Springer: The Opera". Yes, Jerry Springer. Yes, an opera. Yes, we actually waited five years to watch this ever since we saw it headline on Drury Lane in London.

And, yes, we felt dirty before, during, and after watching this, especially since it all worked. It brought back memories of adolescence as I saw the actual show. (Before I discovered porn or sex, I discovered Jerry Springer.) The opera was accurate, right down to lime green pumps, leopard print miniskirts, men in diapers, and tap-dancing Klansmen. We had our pictures taken with the cast. I still remember one of the cast members from "The Mystery of Edwin DROOD" as Princess Puffer.

After the show, we walked and took the #1 to Harvard where we had a sundae at J.P. Lick's before it closed.

2181: "The Simpsons Movie": This was on Tivo. It was pretty much a 90-minute Simpson's episode. I don't have [ profile] jbsegal's enthusiasm for the franchise, so I have to convince myself that the characters of Homer Simpson, Peter Griffin, and Roger from "American Dad" are likeable. Also, I like Green Day.

2182: "Far From Heaven": Also on the Tivo. Once again, I'm reminded against romanticizing 1950s suburbia. It's great if you're a strong, white Republican male--that sums it up. For others, there was a lot of hypocrisy and mirrors surrounding a house of cards. It was the prototype to "Mad Men". Of course, you can't go wrong with Julianne Moore (one of my favorite actresses).

From what I could remember, this is how I perceived a character analysis about me at a party on Saturday:

I am more confident dressing up as a nurse and having my face/hair mutilated to resemble a scary clown than in my normal wear.
