Archives For April 2008

I began watching a new old set of tapes (for archiving purposes), and I managed to go through 2 tapes… so that was like 9 hours… in 3 or 4, lol. Anyway, During the viewing, I saw a few clips where Carly Pope was featured, like 25 Hottest Stars Under 25 (by Teen People) which she shared with Brendan Fehr (from Rosswell). Were these two together??? And also, Carly was on 2000’s Nickelodeon’s Kid Choice Awards alongside Leslie Bibb, and some dude from Nickelodeon. Carly had crazy hair back then, lol… and she seemed very catty-friendly with the dude. I thought that was weird because I didn’t remember that at all.

Anyhoo… I got melancholic about seeing her work on time, because she’s been doing a lot Canadian indie films that I don’t get to see. She made Young People Fucking in 2007, and according to someone on the boards it was gonna be a limited release on April 18 this year, but haven’t heard anything about it. I mean, it took me 3 years to get to watch Eighteen and Everyone… and when I was still in Vancouver I was lucky enough to watch Hamster Cage at the movies (Fifth Avenue Cinema ROCKS) and I even got to see Larry Kent (the director of the film) after the film… how awesome is that? Vancouver was great for Carly Pope viewing because I also got to watch a  rough cut version of Break a Leg Rosie, which was a surprise because I was not expecting to see Carly at all!

Just a few days ago, I saw a re-run of Dirt on tv, and Carly was there playing Garbo. Hotness. I still have mixed feelings about the show, but being a big Greta Garbo fan… and a big Carly Pope fan, it all makes me giddy to the point of no return~~ And I think it’s fantastic that she’s taking classes, and continuing her studies… and according to her Wikipedia, she IS fluent in French, Italian and Spanish. Though, you never know… it might be the whole same issue there is with how many languages Natalie Portman is fluent in, LOL’

Anyway, I leave you with a lengthy interview that Curve Magazine did to Carly on 2007, I’m guessing. Great read, WORD.

Updating this list!

Since the update on March 18 (just a month ago! Wow, I’m so exact~~), these are the films I’ve seen:

When my family first got cable, I remember watching NHK. Now, as a person who doesn’t speak Japanese at all, and being a Japanese wannabe… the only programs I could actually follow sans subtitles were kid shows. One of them is the long-lasting Okaasan to Issho, which apparently began showing on October 5h, 1959. I think the first time I saw the show was in 1999… or I could be wrong and be 1998. Anyway, if you don’t know about it… it’s like hmm, Menudo meets Sesame Street, but for really really small kids. I’m guessing 2-3 years old. The show has been inventing and re-inventing itself throughout the years. Changing life-size-puppets, and hosts in their many years. Continue Reading…
