11:53 PM

hey there :)
its 11:54 PM (but i wrote the title a minute before). i'm supposed to be doing some english homework about patterns seen in Lord of The Flies. i've done EXACTLY the same homework material for the past four chapters, and i dont see why in the world we'd have to make another. YES ms. english teacher, i am now more aware of patterns in books-- YOU TAUGHT ME WELL :|
i was supposed to be finished with this homework three hours ago, but i decided to write in on my computer. and what a stupid mistake that was. one word. DISTRACTION.
12:00 AM
i just wanted to write 12:00 AM in fancy italicized writing in an applicable situation.
my work here is done. off to do some REAL homework (with this cue, i publish post, and go straight back to procrastinating)

nothin's gonna change my world.....

well, for all The Beatles fans out there, im sure i dont have to tell you that i was just singing a line from across the universe (one of their songs). i think that they're lyrical geniuses and are a group of brilliant--NAY, extraordinary-- guys.
onto my main discussion...
okay, i dont remember when (well actually, it might have been last year) or how i came across the trailer for the 2007 movie Across the Universe. it was all completely by accident. it features Jim Sturgess' breakout role (later, he plays the main role, Ben, in the movie 21).

The movie is set in the mid 1960s about an English shipyard worker named Jude. He travels to the US and finds himself friends with a rebellious Princeton soon-to-be dropout, Max. Through this friendship, Jude meets Max's sister, Lucy, and ends up falling in love with her. The three of them goes to New York, and along with other people they'll soon to meet, they face the hardships of change, the war in Vietnam, and relationships between each other.

OH! and did i mention it's a musical featuring covers of many of The Beatles' songs? it's pretty damn awesome. why do you think the main character is named "Jude" (this is an allusion to the song Hey Jude). I don't understand why when people do covers, people feel like "OH NO! THIS CRAP CAN'T BE SERIOUS!" well, ehhemm, these songs aren't untouchable. i bet most singers feel flattered when some other artist are covering their songs.

anways, now that i've introduced you to this movie (if you haven't already seen it), i want to invite you on a quest. im searching for the perfect site to watch this movie on. the only site i know is Megavideo. and you know how megavideo only lets you watch 72 minutes? well, this movie is well over two hours. so imagine loading the movie, being cut from it, then waiting 54 f*cking minutes, and reloading it again to where i left it, blah blah blah..... ITS FREAKIN MADNESS.

i'm obssesed with trying to find a good site. i really want to watch this movie. AND NO! there isnt a good video rental spot in my area--no, wait-- my geographic region. i never have the time to watch it all on megavideo. i've watched a little over half of the movie.
if there's anyone out there in this world with a kind and daring heart, you would embark on this journey with me.

weirdonenessify *thumbs up*

i have my own youtube channel that is sadly lacking in videos, apparently. BUT im working with a hilarious and most insane group of people on weirdonenessify. we're just a group of friends that have absolutely nothing to do during eight period at school. we are an entourage of four (thats so cool to say. ENTOURAGE)
see for yourself...

we plan to do this every week (or hope to do this). if this post wasnt obvious enough, im telling you to subscribe s'il vous plait. yes, they're pretty insane, but they'll be doing and saying things that seem so scripted, where in fact, its absolutely NOT.

well i kinda have this blog...

..and im not doing anything on it. im sorry blog, for absolutely abandoning you for past months.

anyways, just wanted to say hi and bring this blog to life once again (for the fifth time). the reason why i think i've left this one is because i had this old blog (3 years ago kinda old) and this one never matched up to the one i had. i was in seventh grade and the blog was my life. the cool thing about said blog was that it gained SO much popularity in a matter of three months. people from 30 countries would end up finding my blog and that was HUGE for a wee little seventh grader like me. i would hyperlink THIS word, but apparently, the site was suspended. WTF.
so now im making a new one.

i would probably be more active next year. i plan to make this blog as a part of my personal projects at school where i write about global issues, art, and just things im interested in. but i am going to start a habit of just writing onto this blog.
