Happy Memorial Day
Howdy everyone. I don't really have a good excuse for not coming to mO lately. No, I really don't. So here's what I've been up to.
I had a Memorial Day (but not actually ON Memorial Day) soccer tourny, where we played small sided 4 V. 4, and my team won, so we all got free t-shirts. I also did something to my ankle and tour open my knee. The knee thing was from kicking the ball, then loosing my balance, then falling on it. I'm such a klutz.
I got to hang out with my friend who I haven't seen in a really long time cause he doesn't go to our school anymore. We hung out in his pool, played video games, you know, the works. He gave me Pokemon Ruby and Pokemon Leaf Green, so I started Ruby, cause my DS has GBA capabilities, and I wanted some GBA games. AND i just saved myself like 60 bucks. He also gave me Zelda: Wind Waker, which is more fun than I thought it'd be. Especially the guy on that one island that has the Pirate painting and when you play his battleship game goes "SPLIIIISH! KA-BOOM!" Haha, that guy's awesome. It really is a cool game, and I like how it has kind of an asian feel to it. I still can't wait for Twiglight Princess, though.
Allright, i'm off again, I've got some chores to do, and lunch to eat. Hope everyone has a great weekend!

Hello, fellow Star Warriors!
Yes, in three days I've already seen Star Wars twice. The midnight showing was GREAT! We got there around ten, and they let us into the theater right away. There was a dwarf dressed as Yoda, and a dude in a bear outfit trying to be an ewok. Most people were in Sith or Jedi outfits, and alot of people brought lightsabers. One huy in our theater (they opened about 6) had those glass, $300, Sharper Image ones, and during the previews when the people couldn't get the movie projector to work, he was sitting in the back row, and turned it on in the little window menicingly, but then the dude in the room opened the window to yell at him. Also, around 11, some EB Games guys came in, and gave everyone coupons for the games. Then I answered the question of "What color is Mace Windu's lightsaber?" first, so i won a free poster and comic book. MAJOR COOLIO.
When the lights finally dimmed down, about half the people in the theater started making wookie noises. I have no idea why. But it was cool anyhow.
About the movie, I thought Portman's and Christiansen's acting was much better, even if the dialogue hadn't improved much, i.e. "You're breaking my heart, Anikin!" But thank god they didn't call him "Ani". That would have been horrible. At one point towards the begining when she says "Anakin, I have wonderful news!" the guy behind my friends and I whispered "PREGGERS!" Haha. But yeah, Obi-wan PWNS with a lightsaber! He certainly did some ass schoolin, I'd say. Though Grevious was cool too. Count Dooku-not so much. I was pissed I didn't get to see Aayla fight, but Mace Windu was good, and Kit Fisto held his own for a couple minutes. But you knew that as soon as those Jedi stepped in there, they were in big shit. Palpatine was surprisingly nimble with a lighsaber, too. I actually thought he was uglier in this episode than in VI. I don't know why.
Hooray for Aayla! Hooray for all underused characters!
Thought that was funny. Ok, my new fav order of the movies are as follows:
I think this because the action was best in V and III, as were the story lines, and I put ANH in front of ROTJ, because if you watch that two hour documentary on all that shit they had to overcome to get it filmed, it really is remarkable. I I liked least because of Jar Jar and Jake Lloyd. Uck, what a lethal combination. The only way it saves face is with Liam Neeson and Darth Maul.
My favorite planets to live in the Star Wars universe would be Alderan, the place where the wookies live (crap, I forgot the name), Naboo, or that hole-y planet where Obi-wan and Grevious fought, with the bird dinosaur.
Places definently NOT cool to live: Mustafa, Hoth, Tatooine, and that place where the bug people live, from episode II.
Oh, can anyone tell me what those giant bubble things that Palpatine was watching when he was talking to Anakin or Corescant were? I mean, is that how people in outer space ENTERTAIN themselves? What the hell were those?
That's it from here, hope everyone has a great weekend. I'll try and stop by more often, and update my GB. Thanks for other 400 entries, now!

woah, it's been a week.
I know it's been a while, you don't need to tell me. I don't really have good excuse other than I didn't feel like updating. But I also got kinda sick last wednesday. Just woke up with a sore throat, and that escalated into coughing/phlegm attacks for the past week. I haven't been a pretty site, as anyone who sees me on a regular basis can tell you. But hey, here are some good things that happened.
I got my prom dress and shoes. It's long, strapless, and BLOOD RED. but hey, did you really expect any other color from the Tigress? I'll see if after the event (June 4th) I can get some pics up here of me, my group, and my date *girly laugh*. My mom also bought me a pair of Oakley sunglasses as an early grad present. They're really cool! They're white sporty ones with black lenses. They didn't have red, but my favorite color combo is white and red (as you could probably guess), so it'll match most of my stuff. I've been wearing them to all my practices, and referee games, and even outdoors at lunch.
I also got the Revenge of the Sith ost. It's the best outta the 2nd trilogy OSTs. And it comes with a bonus DVD of Palpatine telling the story for all the themes for all 6 movies, with clips from all 6 movies playing while you hear the music. I put it on my iPod and jogged along to some wicked Star Wars music today. But now I'm all sweaty.
Oh, biggest piece of news:
MIDNIGHT TICKETS FOR REVENGE OF THE SIT, BABY!
The General gives his condolances.
But anyways, I'll wear my storm trooper jacket, and my Jedi t-shirt which I tried on today (I bought it in 6th grade) and it fits me again! There were a couple of years before I went on my diet where it didn't fit too well, but it fits now, and I'm happy. I won't be wearing my Darth Maul outfit, as that's just waaaaaaay to clunky to wear around. I think I lost my lightsaber too, which is a realy bummer. It was a copy of Darth Maul's lightsaber.
Woah, he's like Renji!
Anyways, I'm really excited about this whole Star Wars thing. I watched all the movies over the weekend, and spent an hour watching that ROTS bonus DVD. I'll probably be wiped out until Saturday night, but I'll let you people know how it went.
I'm sorry I haven't been visiting sites. I've just had to deal with...stuff. Like, making all my college course selections, which is weird to do it now, but whatever. I'm taking art, and math, and English, and art, and art...maybe music, some Spanish...oh, I forgot them all already.
Ok, now I have to practice clarinet and write s stupid speech for a paper I wrote back in Febuary. Damn. And I have to dress all nice, too. Ah, well, whatever.
I believe the last quote we had was Dragnet...back before Dan Aykroid was fat.
"I've looked at so many women. I've seen everything, and felt nothing. But when I look at you, it hurts."
I just put up this quote, cause we finished the movie in Government today. Definently not a feel-good movie, I can tell you that. But anyways, hope everyone has a great Tuesday.

wOOt, the O finally added a Bleach hub! That rocks! So I hope all Soul Society fans contribute! I might put up some fan art or sommat. We'll see. I also reached 16,000 hits, so thanks to everyone for that. I put up the last banner I made before my graphics program free trial expired.
I'm here now in AP Journalism. Since it's AP testing this week, we're not doing anything except writing, so I'm taking a hiatus. And reading my book. The guys next to me are being uber dorks and talking about car engines and computers.
Speaking of uber-dorks, I watched Empire Strikes Back yesterday, my fav Star Wars movie. I'll probably watch eps VI, I, and II by next week. My AP Government test is tomorrow, so I figured I'd actually put some time aside to study for it. But I think I'll fail it anyways. I hate gov. ^_^
Today I probably won't get to many sites, because after school I have to take one of my doggies to the vet (he's chewing on his left paw alot, and he's had a lump for a while), and then I have Spanish tutoring, and then I study. So, sorry bout that.
I saw a Harry Potter Goblet of Fire teaser trailor yesterday, but it was so small and crappy, I haven't deemed it worthy enough to share with you guys. Don't worry, once I find a bigger one, I will. However, I have deemd THIS
worthy enough to show you. It's the Chronicles of Narnia trailor. Once you get there, click on "View X-Large Large Trailer" to see it. TOTALLY kick-ass. Check it out.
That's all for now. My wrist hurts. I've typed alot in the past hour, and I still have 45 minutes to kill. Hope everyone has a good Tuesday!

It's been a while, ne? Well, I'm sure you're wondering where Red's been. Studying, mostly (or I like to tell myself). But I've also been busy with soccer, clarinet stuff, and so on and so forth. But there's also been a couple of things of note I'd like to talk about from the past week.
1)DOWNLOADED SOME GHOST IN THE SHELL MUSIC. All that prooves is that Yoko Kanno RULES! Oh, but fans of Bebop and Wolf's Rain already knew that.
2)In Spanish class we watched Batman: Mask of the Phantasm in Spanish. And then our teacher went to the teacher's lounge, stole some chocolate cake, and gave it to us. WERD.
3)Diet hasn't been going to well, especiall after that chocolate cake incident as mentioned above.
4)Saw Naruto 132 and Bleach 30. FINALLY Kakashi's back in the mix. Hopefully he'll find those two before they kill eachother. Though to be honest, at this point in time, Sasuke's the being the biggest ass-wipe ever, I wouldn't mind if Naruto finished him off.
5)OH YEAH! SAW FAMILY GUY ON SUNDAY! FUNNIEST FUCKING THING EVER!
6)Saw LOST! What the Hell's going on!?! Oh well, I'll never know. But Sahid and Locke are the coolest dudes on the island, so I'm glad they're not dead. ^_^
7)So, I'm auditing precal now, and my teacher's STILL making me take quizzes! So I leave the papers blank and doodle on them. That ass-wipe.
8)Finished my Terry Goodkind book, "Blood of the Fold". Twas good. Started George R.R. Martin's "A Game of Thrones". Tis good.
9)Saw Kingdom of Heaven. Lupin was in it! So was Edward Norton from Fight CLub, but you don't really "see" him. Scar from Lion King was too. And of course, Qui-gon Jinn and Legolas. Some of the scenes looked exactly like the Battle of Pelennor Fields, but with Arabs instead of orcs. But I think that was just bad timing on Ridely Scott's part. It was good, because it was more about being a good person than about killing people casue their religion was different. It was 144 minutes long, but still intresting, but since they cut 80 minutes of footage out, it was really...jumpy. I still couldn't tell you the names of half the characters. The entire movie, in my head I was calling them "Scar, Qui-gon, Leggy, and Lupin". But it was still interesting. MUCH better than some of Scott's recent movies after Gladiator *cough*Alexander*cough*.
10)Saw the last half of Sideways. The stealing the wallet out of the people's rooms while they were, uh, getting intimate, and then having the man chase him was the best.
11)Decided that I should get a Pokemon game at some point.
12)Found a date for Prom, yay!
13)Decided to pick up ROTS soundtrack at some point
15)won another soccer game against some trashy people. We're undefeated now. AND we had no subs.
16)Watched Last Samurai and Star Wars: ANH after Kingdom of Heaven. Damn, I love those movies.
17) Saw a new Teen Titans, but had to leave before the last 10 minutes! So if anyone knows what happened to Raven on her b-day after Slate came back and she froze time, PLEASE tell me.
Ok, that's it from here. No movie quote, cause I'm really tired, so instead I'll pose a question. Which would you rather be, Samurai or Ninja? Why? as for me, I'm still undecided. I'll let you know next time.
Till then, peace out cub scouts.

Even though it's raining, I'm happy that I don't have to work, because it's raining. I'm a soccer referee, so my job, which constitutes of about 3 hours of labor every three weeks, heh heh heh, is greatly affected by weather. Anyways, as you can probablt guess, I've been really busy, so sorry about the GB signings and comments, and not visiting, I'll get that all done with once AP exams are over.
Yesterday we had a band trip to the Winchester Apple Blossem Festival in VA, which is a huge thing, and I guess it's more nationall recognized than I realized. People from as far as Ohio were coming down. Dan Aykroid shows up every year too, but apprently he's a prick in real life, so we were all happy we didn't see him wandering around the mall or sommat. But damn, he made some great 80's movies. But anyways, I went to Hot Topic, and got that FMA shirt and Professional Air Guitarist wristband I was talking about. My friend said that the shirt looked Satanic and I said "It's a Transmutation Circle!!" but his point was that the administrators wouldn't know that. But they don't care, anyways. I also picked up the Blade Trinity DVD. I had to get unrated, because I think that's the only version anyone ever put out, but I watched the UnratedExtended version (you can see the theatrical release, too) and that was good. The alternate ending was good too, even though it was only about a minute. I liked the Bloopers Reel (you all should know by now I'm a HUGE fan of the bloopers) which featured Hottie Canadian Ryan Reynolds. I can't wait to watch the director/actor commentary, too, and probably the 100 minute documentary, cause a reviewer I trust said they were really good.
I also watched House of Flying Daggers and fell asleep about an hour into the thing. But I liked it up to the part I fell asleep at! Very nice visual effects, lots of eye candy. And it wasn't even really the effects, it was just like the colors, and the settings. Like, the fight in the bamboo forest was SO cool. Shimmy up bamboo stalks, and all. Very cool.
COP WEEK-This will probably be my last cop week, but that doesn't mean stop reading Cream and Nougat!
"I don't care what undercover rock you crawled out from, there's a dress code for detectives in Robbery-Homicide. Section 3-605. 10. 20. 22. 24. 26. 50. 70. 80. It specifies: clean shirt, short hair, tie, pressed trousers, sports jacket or suit, and leather shoes, preferably with a high shine on them."
Ok, catch ya cats later, hang in there for all you people that have exams these next few weeks! Damn, I don't graduate till June 20-something. Sucks, don't it?

Now's not really a good time...
Sorry I haven't updated. Or signed GBs. Or visited. Now's not really a good time. I have to study for AP Tests next week and the week after, plus today, our journalims teacher decided that IN ADDTION TO all our AP tests, she'd give us no fewer than 7 PROJECTS. And one of those is 5 projects within a project. For once, I'm not exaggeratin' here, folks. We have stuff due until the day we graduate. Literally. And that's still two months away. *rips hair out*
I'm looking forward to Friday. Besides our upcoming band competition and mall time, my mom also said she'd take me to see Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy. And know what else comes with seeing that?
THE FINAL BATMAN BEGINS TRAILOR, YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! OMG, can't wait.
Oh, oh, what's this?! It's time again for...
RED'S WEIRD ASS DREAMS!!!
Granted, some of you might not have been around the last time I did this (remember, Vader and Chili's?). So anyways, this segment is devoted to me talling you my weird-ass dreams. And let me tell ya, I have ALOT. The latest culprit to invade the sanctity that I'm sure at some point was my brain, was that Prince of Elves and Hotties himself. That's right, Orlando Bloom.
Yes, haha, we met in the pool on a cruise (but much bigger and scarier and more dream-like than the one I went on). But yes, I woke up before anything "happened". Damn nit.
Ahh, to dream like Red.
Oh Eddie, why are you such a jackass in real life? And no, that's not an allusion to Donkey.
"We have just received a threat on the building. We ask if you please exit the building as soon as possible and please do not panic."
"Did you hear what I just said? Get your shit and go out the door!"
Ok, not the best cop movie around, but it's all I could pull up on short notice.
Hmm, I can't see Hitchhikers this Friday afterall. Oh well, I'll still be gettin Blade 3! RYAN, YOU'RE MY HERO!!

Who ever invented report cards should have their bodies dug up, hacked to pieces, and thrown into a Lion Pit.
Yeah, you're right, that would be unhealthy for the lions.
In any case, my parents decided I did better work when I was grounded. Except, unknowingly to them, I didn't change one thing about my routine. I still watched tv, I still downloaded anime, I still spent from 3 PM-1 AM futzing around on the Internet. I think the work just got harder. Of course, I can't tell them that. Then I'd never be allowed near another computer as long as I lived. Anyways...
I FINALLY finished this fantasy book that I've been reading since november. Usually, it only takes me a month or two to read 835 page, 87 chapter books, but I was pretty busy this year. Anyways, the book's called Destiny, it's the third one in the Rhapsody Trilogy by Elizabeth Hayden, so, if anyone here is into fantasy (besides Harry Potter), and can tear themselves away from their manga long enough to read something, i'd reccomend that.
If you can overlook the sexual escapades.
Course, that might want to make some of you read it more, i dunno.
WOW, MOVING ON. We bought Meet the Fockers on DVD. I've seen it before, but my dad REALLY got a kick out of it. Especially when the baby went "Az...hoooooole!" Hahaha, noice. We also bought House of Flying Daggers, so I think I'll watch that tonight. When my parents aren't around. Like, in secret.
Of course, that could mean I'll miss Teen Titans, The Batman, and JLU, but that's a risk I'm willing to take. Everything comes out on DVD eventually. The WB has to hurry it's ass along with Batman Beyond, though. Wah, I miss Terry! Oh, but that guy that did his voice (and who was also Eric in Boy Meets World) I found out does the voice of some kid on Kim Possible. So, the other day I watched Kim Possible. Now granted, I pretty much never watch the Disney Channel unless there's a movie on, but this toon wasn't actually yoo bad. You know for Disney and all. Something about a guy that gets genetic mutations so he could have monkey feet and then fight with Monkey Kung Fu, and Kim's nerd cousin Larry. It was funny.
I didn't get that FMA shirt. However, when our band goes to Western Virginia (not to be confused with Northern or West Virginia), we're gonna have a few hours in the mall (which I've been to before, because that's where we go off on days off from summer camp) to kill, and I know there's a Hot Topic there, so I'll pick it up then. There's also an FYE, so I'll pick up Blade:Trinity too, and watch the extended seen with my hubbie, Ryan Reynolds and a werewolf fight. Yay! Speaking of Blade, Wesley Snipes (I used to think he was cool, not anymore) is suing David Goyer, the guy who wrote/directed Blade, and Batman Begins, and the upcoming Flash movie, over the fact that people were racist on the set, and the other characters (namely my hubbie, Ryan Reynolds) got more attention than Blade. Dude, suck it up, you're paranoid! Anyways, read the full story here.
Oh, and I dunno if most of you know, but one of my other hubbies, Nicholas Cage, is currently filming the movie adaptation of the comic Ghost Rider. And he looks HOT!!!
Allright, Sin City!
"Hey [name], don't worry about me. We got coffee and cocaine here. We're gonna get wired and have a big party."
Haha, cracks me up. Allright, hope everyone has a good weekend. Mine will be mediocre at best. -_-;

First off, thank you everyone who commented yesterday. That's the most I've gotten in a long time. So, thanks for that.
Secondly, the THAT avatar contest ends today. I'm looking forward into seeing what you all submitted! I'll probably look after I post this, which could take a while, depending on what I want to say.
My friend burned me a copy of HP:TPoA. Wait a second, how the Hell do you appreviate Harry Potter movies/books? LOTR is easy, SW:ROTS or SW:TESB or TPM is easy, or POTC. But Harry Potter? Harry Potter and the prisoner of Azkaban? Is it:
If people surf around in HP fanfic or something, let me know. Anyways, the soundtrack is good. I'm just getting psyched for SW:ROTS, the soundtrack. I heard a clip of the new feature song (kinda like Duel of the Fates was the feature song for TPM) and it's pretty wicked! It's called Battle of Heroes. Which is kinda contradictory, cause I don't think I'd ever call Anakin a hero. Not even when he was a semi-cute 11 year old boy with an acting complex who beat a catfish that walked on his hands. ANYhow, that's my opinion.
Ok, don't tell anyone, but I found this REALLY cool FMA shirt at Hot Topic. I'm gonna see if I can sneak out to get one tomorrow afternoon. Of course, once all the Otakus at school see me with it, they'll wanna get one too. The thing is, I only have one anime shirt, and it's a Trigun shirt, so I can't wear it to school, cause, you know, he's got a gun. Anyway's, Check this sucker out.
Nothing much else going on. Except a dude fell like two stories at DC's resident RFK Stadium at our last Nats game. Man, I love DC. The stupidest sh*t happens here. I need to get me a Nats cap. I still can't name one dude who plays on our team. And we have a pansy mascot. Not like every OTHER team in DC has an eagle for their mascot. Nah, not at all!
I'm so sorry, Montreal.
Allright, Lethal Weapon! Like, my fav cop movie EVER!
"And after I pull off that miracle, maybe I'll go punch out God."
Oh, and congrats to everyone who guessed the quote yesterday. Usually it's only Niko, so I'm happy to see some other people do it, as well. So, keep it up, even if you have NO idea what the movie is!
Hang in there, tomorrow's Friday! But, sorry to the people who don't like Fridays, so hang in there anyways.

Wow, it got really late when I wasn't looking. So I'll just update now. Damn, my head hurts. Anyways, I had trouble on the home front again today, with the horrible class. My college hasn't gotten back to me on ANY e-mails I send those people, and it's really starting to tick me off. So, all in all the bad stuff that happened today made me download some Manson and Korn, and together with them, Slipknot, Linkin Park, P.O.D., and Rob Zombie, I made a playlist entitled "Angry Sh*t" list. Yeah, don't mess.
Course, then I had to balance myself out by downloading some Sister Hazel and Better Than Ezra. Oh, some good 90's rock right there.
Oh yeah, I couldn't give blood today, because Costa Maya (we went there one day on our cruise) is apparently on the High Alert Malaria List, so I have to wait like a year to donate again. oh vell. At least I avoided a potentially embarrassing situation. Like passing out.
Ok, last time it was Scary Movie 3. the best of the Scary Movies, I'd have to say. The 2nd one was just...perverted.
Ok, to go along with Some Guy's Cream and Nougat
stories, we're doing COP MOVIE WEEK! Well, it's actually just Nougat this time, but check it out! He's the featured mO member, you MUST check it out! I COMMAND it!
"Let's make like the shepherd and get the flock out of here!"
Haha, I actually laughed REALLY hard when i read that. But maybe it's cause it's one in the morning. Anyways, I won't be around, today, and probably can't make it to sites, cause I have a gov project, then clarinet lesson. so sorry, but keep it real for me, k?
