The Much Anticipated Monkey Post
Thanks for the suggestion, SG!
Topic: If two monkeys of essentially the same mass were floating in space at the same velocity and collided head-on with each other, just exactly what would happen?
We'll just call the aforementioned monkeys Joe and Todd. How did Joe and Todd, two monkeys of the exact same mass, get into space, you ask?
Well, this whole thing started in 1983, an experiment to create a cleaner, fresher laundry detergent... but it turned into an procedure gone wrong. A world-renowned scientist, who for the purpose of this post shall be called "Bob," hypothesized that if two monkeys of the same mass were to collide in space at the same velocity, it would clean any stain.
As Joe and Todd are released into space, approx. 2.74 miles away from each other, an unexplainable force, the force of cleanliness, pulls them towards each other. They near each other... very, very slowly. And they get closer. And closer. And closer. And closer. Closer. Closer. Closer. Closer. Closer. Closer. Closer. Closer.
One hour later, they're halfway there. But despite this, all is going as planned. Bob begins to stroke his favorite silk tie, which is covered with red wine. "Soon, my love," he hisses maniacally. But there are some stains which the Heavens did not intend to be washed out.
Finally, Joe and Todd reach each other, and collide, their foreheads touching first. Suddenly, a bright light enveloped everyone present, and everything on the ship began going haywire, or should I say everyone's clothes on the ship. Bob's clothes were completely bathed in red wine, as were everyone elses'. Meanwhile, back on Earth, strange and terrifying styles began arising. Mullets, fishnets, blinding shinypants, and many more horrifying articles of clothing. To make it even worse, this was all happening to Boy George's soon-to-be hit, "Do You Really Want to Hurt Me."
And in the midst of this confusion, SomeGuy was born.
That was fun! *Giggles* Maybe too much fun. You guys have to suggest inane topics for me more often!
By the way, watched an intensely lame Kenshin episode the other night. Now I'm just watching it with the hope that Saitou will show up soon, or Sanosuke will be given something to DO! Ugh.

Happy Singles' Awareness Day!
Like the new look? I decided I was going to do all the stuff on my site for a while. It's going to be quite fun, especially with the new pic in my intro... *grins happily*
So how was everyone's Valentine's Day? Mine was quite good, even though by society's standards I was "alone." Even when I HAVE a boyfriend, if he's not in the state, he "doesn't exist." Damn friends with their accursed laws of singleness.
But I went over a friend's house, and we worked on a manga type thing we're doing together. I'm writing, she's drawing, and it's coming out pretty good! And we watched LOTR and Zoolander, twas quite fun.
Yes, I still need a minute to write the monkey post. But I have not forgotten! Remember the monkey!
In anime news: I just watched Peace Maker Kurogane 18. Don't tell me that just happened! NO! You can't just leave me there! Gah. I HAVE to discuss it with someone, but the OB is down! *Pouting*
By the way, have any of you seen Descendants of Darkness (Yami no Matsui, I think it is in Japan)? Is it any good?
Well, I'm outta here. Yes, I will write the monkey post. Promise.

Beck has recovered! *Jumps up and down* Yay! Yay! Thank you, everyone, for the well-wishes, milkshakes, matches, and jokes at my expense ^__^ Thank you Molly for the card, as well, I got it yesterday and I was SO happy! *Hugs* Since I forgot your Christmas card, I'll do something special for you. Count on it!
I have so much homework tonight, not to mention make-up work. One thing I have to do is write a synopsis and two character profiles on a screenplay I have to do for my TV/Film class. One problem: I don't know what to write about! *Cries* I need to get my creative juices running... I think they're stopped up.
As for the monkey post: I shall write it as soon as I have the time. Count on it, SG!
And I finished all the released episodes of Peace Maker Kurogane as well. If you haven't seen it yet, I highly suggest doing so right now. I am loving it in all it's homicidal pupil-shrinking-ness, and I seriously hope that they don't screw up the ending. Translation: if they kill off Okita, they're dead.
So long, all! I shall be back soon with SG's post idea!

I'm a dangerous person, aren't I?
I've been lying around all weekend, sleeping and watching Peace Maker. Not a bad combination! I think I may be obsessed, though. Errr, with PMK, not sleeping...
I'm watching episode 11 right now. It's getting very good! *Does a little jig* Although I must say, that blood totally spurts, haha. The Choushuu must have the highest blood pressures in Japan. Either that, or they are simply highly pressurized sacks of blood disguised as Choushuu. Oh yeah. I'm good.
I'm staying home again tommorow. My cough hasn't gone away, plus my medicine completely knocks me out for a couple of hours. If I fell asleep in Chem, that would be bad... those honors teachers are so touchy, heh heh.
Well, I'll make this one a quickie. Since I won't have much to do tommorow, why don't I spend the day making a cool post for you guys? Although I don't have any ideas... so go ahead and give me some! Feel free to get obscure as you want, I will be on my antibiotics after all ^___^
Hope everyone had a great, healthy weekend! And if not, I hope you all get better very, very soon!
EDIT: OH MY GOD! His eyes! What the hell just happened to his eyes? *Freaks out* I'll never get used to that crazy homicidal pupil shrink...
Yes, that's what happens when I watch anime and make a post at the same time...

Boo for sickness... yay for PMK!
After 2 nights of late rehearsals and a week of practically no sleep, I finally have a cold... *coughs*... and it's not very pleasant.
Luckily, I found some great medicine: anime and chocolate milkshakes. I lay on the couch for most of the day, watching Fruits Basket. And I was in an oddly emotional mood, which got me sobbing again in the last episode... *sniffle*
And along with FB, I watched quite a bit more, one being Peace Maker Kurogane. Ever since Dagger recommended it so highly, I knew I had to see it. After some inital trouble downloading (I accidentally clicked out of the download window when it was 77% done... o_O) I got the first few episodes.
And guess what? It's one of my new favorites! Not only a new favorite show, actually, but a new favorite character! Everyone, welcome Okita to Beck's bishie hall of fame ^___^ For introducing me to this, I now worship Dagger even more. HAIL!
It made me feel better, but now that it's over and episode 5 is being super slow, I want another milkshake! *Pouts* I shall be online later, my talking buddies! Dany, I miss you too!
And now, in honor of Beck's new obsession, a picture... of her new obsession!
Not the best pic ever, granted, but he still looks cute
Gah... I need that milkshake... or maybe some cough medicine...

DisneyWorld was so much fun! I had a very good time, except that one of the people I went with was kinda being a bitch. And the fire alarm in our hotel went off at 12:00 am, and then bitch friend kept me up for another hour with complaints about how she wasn't tired anymore, and it was too dark.
But I still had fun! Space Mountain is the singular most fun ride ever. And it's so pretty in there too! Since it's not a really intense ride, you can just watch all the stars and planets go by. I love it!
I wish I bought more candy. Or at least saved some. I am seriously craving candy right now. Well, Valentine's Day is coming up, maybe I'll buy myself some chocolates! Yeah!
In other news:
I had the most fantastic thing happen to me last night! And it's all thanks to Shanny! I owe you one, Yami! ^_________^
And I'm writing an essay for TV/Film right now. The topic is: I have to take one of my favorite films and talk about the mythological archetype use and if it's at all similar to Star Wars. I picked Spirited Away, since I figured LOTR would be too obvious.
Also, I had someone point out my picture of Duo on my binder and say, "Man, she's hot." Which never ceases to amuse me, I'll tell you that.
I started up that Quiz Result thingy on the bottom of my page. Check it out! Take some quizzes! And have a nice Tuesday!

"We're comin' in full throttle, that oughta keep those fighters off our backs..."
I haven't posted it a while! Sorry, everyone! Anyways...
Star Wars Unit!
Ahhhh, have I ever told you how much I love these movies? *Grins with satisfaction* Well, I'll say it again: Yes, I am a Star Wars freak. End of story.
We took many detailed notes on more mythology-based aspects of the movie. Twas quite fun, because we managed to turn the conversation, once again, over to 'Why the most recent Star Wars films are awful.' We also held a contest to see who could say: "I will not let my people die" most like Natalie Portman, haha.
We also got to watch the mistakes, which were hilarious. My two favorites were:
1. A Storm Trooper hitting his head on the low celing as he enters a room.
2. Luke accidentally calling Leia "Carrie" (her real name, for non-geeks) at the end of the movie.
Stupidest comments of the day:
1. "What's the relationship between Luke and Leia?"
2. "Don't they call the fans of these movies Trekkies?"
3. "*Whenever someone dies* HAHAAHHAHAA! He die!"
4. Some I can't even put down, because everyone on this board might want to bomb my school.
We finished 'A New Hope' today! Wahoo!
The rest of my week consisted of good Chem grades, random jokes about the word 'nub', a society of perfect children, the only time in my life I'll get to hear the phrase 'Mr. Love Sponge', and much, much more.
And now I'm packing for a weekend trip to Orlando! It's a friend's Sweet 16. I will be back on Sunday night. I miss all my chat buddies: Molly, Tigress, Shanny, Danny, Aurus, and SG, I will be sure to get online when I get home in the hopes that you'll be there! Thank you for the commments on my poetry, Dagger and Mimmi, they were much appreciated.
Well, until Sunday, ja!

STAR WARS UNIT!
Day 1- Mythology and Annoying Freshmen
I love TV/Film! We started our Star Wars unit today with 'A New Hope.' First, we talked about the reasons why the most recent two were not nearly as good as the first three. Besides the fact that Mr. Sklar, my teacher, is convinced that aliens have invaded George Lucas's brain, we talked about how the first three were very mythology influenced. Like so...
Sklar- *Pauses on one of the interior shots of a ship* In basic mythology, what do you think the ship would represent?
Me- Errrr, the Labyrinth?
Sklar- Everyone, listen to the brilliant young lady.
Tee-hee, I'm brilliant!
Then we got into an arguement with a few freshman about whether to leave the lights on or off. They claimed they couldn't read the words ("A long time ago...") with them off. Then when we turned them off, they got all huffy and stormed out, claiming we were uptight white people. At least they were gone. HUZZAH!
Okay, stupidest comments of the day (all freshman, might I add...):
-"UUUUUGGGGGHHHH! I hate this movie! What's the point!"
-"That R2D2 so annoyin'!"
-"*Points to C3PO* It's Data!"
-"This is SO fake!"
-"*At innopropriate moments* AHAHAHAHA! AHAHAHAHAA!"
So all in all, I learned a good bit about the mythological archetypes, but the freshman are stupid. Can't wait 'til Wednesday! We just got on the Millenium Falcon!
What Kind Of Puzzle Are You?
Take Aurus' quiz, or fear my wrath.

La li ho!
Remember a while back in one of my posts, I mentioned that someone gave me Fushigi Yuugi? And Nikki, Shanny, and some more of you said you wanted to see it?
Word of advice: Keep tissue box nearby. Trust me, you'll need it.
I'm ashamed to say it (since it's such a melodramatic shoujo anime), but I cried harder in that anime than I ever in any movie or show, animated or not. I was crying so hard in the ep I just watched, I was actually shaking and hyperventilating. *Wipes away tears* How dare they kill off my favorite character... that's the first time that's ever happened to me. Stupid episode... so horrible... so tragic... probably the best written one so far... *starts to cry again*
My my, I feel stupid ^__^
But I would recommend it! Highly! Despite it's flaws, it's very entertaining to watch! Maybe it doesn't pick up until episode 3 (entrance of the favorite character)... and then there's the dreaded ep 33 (death of the favorite character)... but I think you girls will like it. And I say girls and mean it. Tis not a guy's anime. Which means Tigress won't like it, since I know you despise romance. May I suggest Record of Lodoss War?
Well, that was my review, of sorts. Nothing much going on in my week. But... *yawn*... I must sleep. Night.
POLL: When's the hardest you've ever cried in an anime or movie?

Evil vs. E-vile
Today was a very sad day. A senior at my school died of an allergic reaction. A lot of people I know were very close to him, so would you have them in your thoughts, please?
But I had a fun post idea for today, so here goes.
I have recently learned the difference between 'Evil' and 'E-vile.' When a villain is evil, they are often more interesting to watch than the hero. They are complex, creepy, and a lot of fun to watch. But when a villain is e-vile, they are boring, contemptible, or just plain annoying. So here's a little analysis on some anime villains. Enjoy!
Exhibit A: Nakago (Fushigi Yuugi)
The Good- To be fair, Nakago is a bit of a bishie. Not just a bishie, a blonde bishie. Plus he's out to kill Miaka, which, in some respects, makes him the hero of the show. And now that I've seen the rest, I suppose he's a bit less boring.
The Bad- He's so boring! I can't watch all the evil plotting scenes, because I just want to tear my hair out in frustration and scream 'Get on with the evil!' And he's got that calm, deadpan personality. Pshaw. Any villain can do that.
Unnatural Villain Hair Color- This crazy golden blonde.
Over-the-Top Villain Line- "Don't waste your childish emotions on me."
Conclusion- E-vile. Bishie-ness alone doesn't make up for being a boring villain. Plus he's indirectly responsible for killing my favorite character. How? I don't know.
Exhibit #B- Dilandau Albatou (Escaflowne)
The Good- This guy is nuts. And I mean NUTS. Totally over the top insane. He's my favorite character in the show, and he's the most compelling one onscreen. He sets just about every town in the show on fire, kicks around his subordinates, and laughs maniacally. Plus, he's a prettyboy. Case closed.
The Bad- If you've seen the last episode, I think you know what I want to say here. But to not spoil the surprise, I'll keep my mouth shut.
Unnatural Villain Hair Color- Silvery-white
Over-the-Top Villain Line- "The city's burning because you're in it!"
Conclusion- Evil. He's one of my favorite anime characters of all time. Totally glompable.
Exhibit C: Legato Bluesummers (Trigun)
The Good- If there ever was a bish of a villain, it's ol' Legato. Easily the coolest character, he quadruples the body count of the series in just a single episode without even picking up a gun. But he's still polite, and kind to children. Awwwwwww.
The Bad- He's a glutton, a hand-licker, and he let's himself be kicked around by Knives. Stand up for yourself, man!
Unnatural Villain Hair Color- Blue.
Over-the-Top Villain Line- "However, this is not an act of mercy. It is simply to teach you the pain of living."
Conclusion- Evil. Whenever he's on, the show gets so much better.
Exhibit D: Akito Sohma (Fruits Basket)
The Good- He's so... ELEGANT! He makes being an invalid 19-20something year old in a pink yukata look sooooo good. And he has the coolest Japanese voice, even if the dub sucks.
The Bad- He's single-handedly scarred everyone on the show, beat up half the girls, deprived everyone from having a life/love, all because he was bitter. That's pathetic, dude.
Unnatural Villain Hair Color- Purple-black.
Over-the-Top Villain Line- "You will regret it. I will make you regret ever becoming involved with the Sohmas!"
Conclusion- Undecided. He's got plenty of e-vile characteristics, but he's still interesting to watch. Hm.
Exhibit E: Naraku (Inuyasha)
The Good- He has minions. *Nods* Minions are good. Plus he killed Kikyo. Beck does not like Kikyo, no she does not.
The Bad- Bo-ring. I usually fast forward through his scenes. He lacks bish-ness, and he has a spider burn mark. I hate spiders. *Shiver* Plus he's a bastard, and not in the cool way even.
Unnatural Villain Hair Color- Black, pretty much.
Over-the-Top Villain Line- "We share the same goal. To kill InuYasha." (See why he's so boring? Ugh.)
Conclusion- E-vile. No two ways about it.
I'm off. If you want me to analyze your favorite villain, pray tell who! Unless I haven't seen the series, mehr.
Bye! Have a good day!
