Amy’s concert laments

September 25, 2007 — 2 Comments

I’ve no idea why I checked the Ticketmaster site, haha – probably coz I like to suffer for the next 60 days.

Arctic Monkeys @ PNE for only $35

Klaxons @ Commodore Ballroom only $17.50 MYGAWDDDDD T_T goes cry in a corner

Tokyo Police Club @ Plaza Nightclub only $15

The Thermals @ Richards on Richards only $15 – *ucking Chris… it goes even lower and lower!

*Amy dies*

I actually hate it when people start getting famous and begin charging over $50, lol… like Maroon 5. Hahaha… I actually paid like $40 to see them before, but that was in a John Mayer concert… they were opening for him. And how about Liza Minelli and 12 Girl Band? Pricey~

I’m a Maniac, Maniac!

… of languages!

Ok, here’s my story. Japanese is pretty awesome, but let’s get real. Any Asian language that I will ever try to learn, will eventually come to a sudden halt with the different writing… Continue Reading…

When life gets you down

You stop and curse. Yeah, that’s what you do. You curse at 3rd persons, you curse at yourself… mainly because of stupid mistakes, and appeal to the better nature of Peruvians. Because, really, in times like this, they SUCK. Continue Reading…

Just updated the list of films I might watch or wanna watch this year – HERE

The past few days, besides from obsessing over watching the Celtic Woman concert DVD, I watched a few films. First in the list are two Canadian indies, both very similar in casting, and both pretty good.

Eighteen tells the story of Pip, an apathetic Canadian middle-upper class who decides to live in the street due to several reasons. On his 18th birthday, he receives a tape with a recording of his grandfather (voiced by Ian Mckellan), who tells Pip about his 18th birthday spent on the run during war time. – The film is quite a good drama, definitely worth a watch. Loved Carly Pope, Paul Anthony and Brendan Fletcher (both of them were on The Adventures of Shirley Holmes). – 4.5/5

Next was Everyone, an odd dark comedy, that also counts with the talent of Pope and Fletcher. This film is about a gay couple who’s getting married, and all their guests for the event, including a failed TV actor who hates kids, his anorexic actress wife, a pot-smoking-couple who spent their time playing video games, a mom who’s desperate for a grandchild, her picked-up-from-the-bus-stop guest, and a caterer that just can’t stop talking. Carly Pope has a few great one-liners in this film xD – 4/5

The Fountain was just plain awesome to watch. The visuals of the film are superb, and the story is so freaking out there – some will hate it, some will love it for sure. The film is about a couple dealing with death, parallel in three different times. HOWEVER, it can also have a different interpretation. It’s really open, but it’s good because it’s different to so many films. – 4/5

And last but no least… Pirates 3. It was a decent film, the effects and action sequences were great as expected. Davy Jones looked as great as Pirates 2, Barbosa was decent, and Jack was great as always. The film didn’t work out for me because I had an issue with introducing all those international pirates, and not using them. What a waste! Even if Chow Yun Fat was pretty good in his few minutes of film – I wish he could’ve been more important. It was just pure filler – and I wished for Elizabeth to just be an independent woman, captain of Sao Feng’s vessel, and king of all pirates~ I hated she had to marry… and I sorta disliked I got an expected ‘happily ever after’ ending. Besides, Jack/Elizabeth kiss on Pirates 2 was hot. Hands down. Lol – 3/5

Hell Friday!

Ok, this last Friday sucked!

First, there is NO sign of episode 6 of ANTM8 coz YouTube sucks. Then, computer was supposed to arrive today, but it hasn’t and my uncle said maybe later in the night, it’s Saturday already and nothing… I also decided to format my cousin’s laptop… HP laptop. For some reason, it didn’t wanna accept and wipe clean the whole Hard Disk with a copy of XP Professional, so now I’m stuck with a useless HP laptop with only 2GB free. I have to wait for the freaking HP installation CDs now.

I was also trying to make a small network between the computers in my house, because I’m tired of running around when I want to print something from my laptop in the printer of the desktop. So that also blows!! I mean, it’s supposed to be so easy, but for some reason it just REFUSES to work properly. I have officially rebooted my machine over 10 times today. And the Microsoft Support Center? Yeah, not much support in there… It figures.

After all was said and done, I ended up having a chat with Mrs. Cow inside a bun. It turned out she was from Hamburg – actually, I learned some things today. First, that thing we, in Spanish, call “Gentilicios”, it’s called “Gentilics” or “Demonym”. I also learned that people from Croatia are not Croatians, but Croats, and that people from Hamburg are NOT Hamburgers, but Hamburgians!

There you go, tell other people!
