Escapism Schmescapism

In order to run away from my age, my boring life and the mirror, in the last 3 months or so I've been watching any film I can get my hands on. I'm talking, films back to back to back.

Maybe I should get therapy.

Anyway it's all such a blur of films that I've decided to make a list. I swear next month I'll take up reading or, I donno, getting a life.

  • Fiddler On The Roof
  • Home
  • Most of the Madea Films
  • For Coloured Girls
  • Titicut Follies
  • To Kill A Mockingbird
  • Vagina Monologues
  • Citizen Kane
  • All the Stanley Kubrick Films
  • Every Ryan Gosling movie (Stay, Fractured, Lars, Half Nelson, Blue Sunshine, Crazy Stupid Love, The Ides of March, all.of.it)
  • Rosemary's Baby
  • Nosferatu
  • The Haunting
  • Exorcist (Really at this point it's a comedy)
  • No Country For Old Men
  • Bridget Jones Diary (Yes, again)
  • Iron Man (It's not that bad. I mean, at least it's not Transformers. And that fler Iron Man and Gwnyeth Paltrows chemistry saved the film from being a complete cliched bore.)
  • A Fish Called Wanda
  • The Birdcage
  • The Fall
  • Sunshine (Don't know what the fuss is about. Apart from the obvious fact that Space = Cool.)
  • Everything Monty Python
  • Entourage 1
  • Mad Men 1
  • Cosby Show (Again. And most of the seasons)
  • Dexter (All the Seasons)
  • Big Bang Theory
  • All seasons of Father Ted
  • Deconstructing Harry
  • American History X
  • Derstung Undergang (Yes, I'm aware I butchered the title)
  • Dumb & Dumber (I just don't get it this time around)
  • To Wong Foo With Love ( <3 )
  • The Elephant Man (Nothing about Anthony Hopkins changes I swear)
  • Friends With Benefits and uh, it's carbon copy No Strings Attached (I think the directors had some kind of bet over who could make the same film premise and get better box office numbers)
  • Some episodes of 2005's Dr. Who
  • Will & Grace (Again. All the seaons)
  • Stand up shows by R. Peters, L.C.K, Kathy Griffin, George Carlin, Bill Maher, Bill Cosby, Robin Williams, Mitch Hedburg, Dave Chapelle, Kat Williams, Ricky Gervais, Chris Rock...everyone. And like, all their specials. Not for the first time most of them.
  • Super High Me
  • The Invention of Lying
  • In Bruges
  • Awakenings
  • Tesis (Dumbshit film.)
  • Straight Story
  • Gran Torino
  • Private Parts (Then spent a night and day listening to a ton of Howard Stern shows)
  • Pollock
  • Jenna Marbles & Luan Legacy on Utube...like everything they've ever done.
  • Fargo (That film pissed me off)
  • Adventureland
  • The Bucket List
  • Amelia
  • City Lights
  • Black Swan
  • Leon
  • Mr. Jones (Again. I'll take Richard Gere bipolar or unipolar man, dang. Fine ass.)
  • Fisher King
  • The Big Lebowski
  • Good, Bad & The Ugly
  • Amadeus (Total rockstar film, something about the fashion of this era. Rock.Star.)
  • The Infidel
  • Goodfellas
  • Kiss Kiss Bang Bang (Fuss, again, what the hell you about?)
  • Lock, Stock, Two Smoking Barrells
  • Into the Wild
  • Mystic River
  • Reign Over Me
  • Men Who Stare At Goats
  • Shawshank Redemption
  • Pulp Fiction
  • Sister Act (Whoopi Goldberg sometimes strikes me as an insane henwit, but her films are classic.)
  • Scott Pilgrim Vs The World
  • Requiem For A Dream
  • Rent (The acting may have been a bit shit but hello the songs!)
  • Rainman
  • Public Enemies
  • City Lights (Oh Charlie Chaplin...like Michael Jackson...there's just something about you I find sexual)
  • Chaplin
  • American Gigolo (Wow bad film, but dang sexy Gere!)
  • Beetlejuice (Why not again?)
  • Birdman of Al Catraz
  • Donnie Darko (I don't think I got it. Not fully. Maybe not even at all. Should watch it again.)
  • The Runaways (Kristen Stewart was so sexy here. Like damn.)
  • Fisher King
  • Dogma (Again. Wow that film needed James Lipton up in that bitch. Like join an acting class or something man. Even Affleck and Damon looked dodgy. And those bitches can act.)
  • Twilight (I was practically delirious with fever and coerced okay. But godawful film. Even through the cramps and chills I was like, what the fuuuuuuuck.)
  • Harold & Maude
  • Let The Right One In
  • Raging Bull
  • Your Highness (I just don't get it)
  • Powder (But not the whole film so I guess it doesn't count. I was too busy laughing at ridiculousness of calling an albino Powder.)
  • Zelig
  • Baraka
  • Boy A
  • Four Christmases (These kinds of comedies don't really say much. They're sort of entertaining, but strike me as the films you watch if you hate your life and want it to pass by you without a fuss. Even with Vince Vaughns genius. What's a good romantic comedy? Oh I know, crazy stupid love was alright, but probably cos Steve Carell is brilliant.)
  • Four Lions
  • Pygmalion
  • Please Give
  • Dave Chapelles Block Party
  • Go Getter
  • Fido
  • I'm Not There
  • Buried
  • Death At A Funeral
  • The Assassination of Jesse James
  • Worlds Greatest Dad
  • Zeitgeist 3
  • The Science of Sleep (Again)
  • The people vs. Larry Flint
  • I Love You Man
  • Worlds Greatest Dad (SPOILER : The scene where the kid dies is a surprise I'll give it that, but what person just leaves his son dangling by his asphyxiation rope and proceeds to bawl like an idiot for 5 minutes. Ever heard of CPR teacher-man, hellluuuuuu.)
  • Ed Wood
  • Pineapple Express
  • Tin tin
  • The Aristocrats
  • Four Lions
Something's wrong with me if I'm watching this many films within the time frame of a couple of months. I mean there's tons more films, these are just what I remember. Which is sick. Help! And I've got so many more films set for viewing today. EGAD.

The First 25

Can an age be a first if it's also going to be your last and only?

Whatever, our really young youth is now firmly behind us. We are 25 (December is like tomorrow Wei Ni), so we are trying to pack as many 'firsts' as we can with this last year of...whatever it may be. Here's the list.

Popo had her :

First Starbucks
First Steak
First Salad
Bought her first nice phone
Bought her first laptop
Went shopping
Became 60% rawist (OLD MOFO. MUST)
First Doc Martens (Fake la.)
First passport
Bought first plane ticket (But it's for next year. What's that thing kids like to do? -_-")
First paycheck for performing musically
First time shooting a gun

:) It's a big deal for me la okay! I'm quite pleased.

Wei Ni's :

First time flying a plane (My first time sitting in a tiny plane and also first time facing my mortality)
First time shooting a gun
First solo holiday (How cool?)
First I-phone (Also first phone she's bought herself? Discounting the 90dollar Nokia)

A good reminder that no matter how old we get, there will always be a first thing for us to try out. Like...first missing tooth, first wrinkle, first breast lift, first teen murder-spree. It's all a party up in this bitch.

We Wanna Be Hip! But We're Breaking Our Hips.

This year, Wei Ni and I discovered Tumblr. It was mostly because of 2 things :

1. Google the god of our time froze this blog, and our email account. Rendering us helpless.

2. All the motherfucking tiny tots were going on this thing called Tumblr and we are at that age where we are ever ready to jump on the Tiny Tot bandwagon.

Unfortunately in our search for Tiny-tot-dom we have created too many god-damn blogs, and then google chooses to unfreeze our blogspot account leaving us with a shit-tonne of blogs. So now I have to document our blogs in case we ever forget them.

Wei Ni's blogs :
Peep (Wei Ni grew up to become a boutique owner)
Peepb (I think it has something to do with fashion)

Popo's blogs :

I Am The Lord (Main tumblr -and FYUI I now think I'm Jesus. True story.)
By Popsicles (My art blog)
From La-la to Whoa (My music blog)
Pop Shop (Where I try to sell things miserably)

Not to mention our twitter accounts :

Er....@bitchiaintfriendly and @Politeiakody

And our youtube accounts :

Pocacacha & Intuchinq

LIKE HELLO, I NEED TO DEVELOP SOME SPLIT PERSONALITIES TO HANDLE THIS SHIT. And Wei Ni wont let me delete anything. Because I apparently deleted all our old youtube videos and since we're dull old people now we can't reminisce.

We Have Moved

To http://www.iamthelordscrapbook.tumblr.com

Changing loyalties for a while. They have a reblog button. :).

Anxious Aggie!

"I cannot teach you violence. I can only teach you not to bow your heads before anyone even at the cost of your life." Mahatma Gandhi.

Word my Indian brother. I'm becoming about as bald as Gandhi right now. Pffft.

Divinator Wanted

Aiyoh, every morning I wake up I have to slowly seperate what was a dream and what actually happened that night. Is this an effect of age?? I am 24 years old. And as a 24 year old a 14 year old wished me a wonderful birthday {heart} and told me that age was just a number.

How we come and we go.

At least her going was quick after the slap I gave her snapped her neck in two. :).

5 Hour Countdown

In 5 hours I will be 24 years old, that's almost 25, and as Jessica Simpson says, "25, that's like, almost mid-twenties." I'm not making fun of her, but I have to say she's got number problems. First with 25....then proclaiming those mom jeans she wore were a size 4....

Stop it! It's not nice. I'm just a bitter old lady...who is going to see Paramore tomorrow!
