God, where to start? Honestly. each summary of the video I’ve attempted to write in the past hour ends up spilling out as a frantic shouting of nouns. (The Alexander McQueen! The big sunglasses! The ugly cat! The sex trafficking! The fire! The hair! The fire-boobie contraption’s comeback!)
Basically, “Bad Romance” is as though David LaChapelle, Alexander McQueen, George Romero, and the Wachowski brothers, and a handful of gay men with a sense of humor were tossed into a room with a camera, a million dollar budget, and then told, “The theme is sex trafficking…GO.”
Mademoiselle Gaga has effectively stolen my heart away: It isn’t just she’s married high fashion with classic horror–she also proves to be a damn good dancer to boot.
If there are those still dubious about whether Gaga’s on her way to becoming a pop icon, this video effectively nullifies all doubt. Fuck “Single Ladies”…this is history in the making.
Has the new Queen officially arrived? I believe, yes.

You know what? I feel like Twitter is my own like lil mini blog now. That's probably why I don't blog anymore. Right now I'm listening to a crappy Tegan & Sara song and forcing myself to eat a large box of Halloween Smarties from last year. its actually pretty gross. and then thirst ruins the moment. I just took a sip of water that tasted like MONEY - what is that about??? And no, I'm not implying that the water tastes like I'm gonna be rich or anything, of course not. What I mean is that it literally tastes like a bunch of dirty pennies. Yummeehh, isn't it? Oh! And now I'm listening to a fairly good Tegan & Sara song - nope, the song ended. What's this playing now? Not just a country song, but a BANJO SONG?!?! Asian disgrace!! *SLAP.*
Apparently, Im cool. Don't get arrogant, Estella. *slap.*
Last night was my school's halloween dance!!! wooooooo! (Why am I still listening to the banjo song?? **slap on both cheeks-face cheeks of course, perv. or am i the only one who thought of butt cheeks? blehhh**) ANYWAY. Back to the dance; it was pretty sweet. It was a (omg, now it's a super mario song - WTF?) video dance and there were 2 screens playing music videos, impressivve. The songs could have been better, and it could have been darker, and less monitored by all the teachers and yes: policemen (real police - not halloween costumes here people). All in all, it was a fun night and according to the principal "one of the best dances she's ever seen/been to since she came to our school". Nice job, kids. My costume was pretty sick-and emo-but thats okay. But it could of been alot better since I only had half an hour to glue zippers to my face and make myself look scary. Yup, you heard right; there were zippers on my face. To get into details, the zippers were under my eyes, and it was supposed to look like you could unzip my skin to expose the flesh underneath.
Abrupt ending: bye. :)

This year I've devised a plan.... let's hope it works! :D
So 3 nights before school starts, I will sleep very very late. 2 nights before school starts, I won't sleep at all. On the last night, I'll be so tired, that I have to sleep! Isn't that like the smartest plan ever?! :D LOL, I can't wait to see it fail so badly....*sigh*.
Anyway, to my rare Zoot Pod readers, I'm sorry I haven't written practically all summer. I was busy with my k-pop addiction and BBF. But no more worries now! Since school is just around the bend, that means I'll have schoolwork. And with schoolwork comes procrastination, my friend. And I'm sure you can see where I'm going with this, don't you? MORE POSTS! :D So sit back, relax and enjoy all the zootiness the ZootPod has to offer. This year will be extra fun because you're probably going to see my highschool life go down in flames and: well yea that's it :)
Anyway, I want to make the most out of the summer I have left ㅠ_ㅠ so please excuse me, while I go learn Korean, and learn Brown Eyed Girls' Abracadabra Dance :)

Tuesday, August 11, 2009
And uhh, Meteor Garden isnt in this cuzzz I havent watched it, anddd apparently its not loyal to the original manga, soo yah. Okay here we go!.... BIG ASE SPOILER(S) ALERT!!!
Geum Jan Di (Goo Hye Sun)/Makino Tsukushi (Onoue Mao)
Okay, in these two pictures (their average-girl look) I think Onoue (Makino) looks alot prettier. The haircut they gave Hye-sun (Jan Di) totally makes her look BLEH which I think adds to BBF's awesomeness! :D Because isn't the main character supposed to be like
Ahhaaha, now that I show you these, you're probably thinking Woah, Goo Hye-Sun (Jan Di) is really pretty! and so is Onoue (Makino)! YAH THAT'S WHAT I THOUGHT! So for all you peeps who think "the girl who plays Jan Di" is ugly, think again. Anyway, I just wanted to prove my point that both ladies are awesome, and suited for their roles. Well actually, I think Onoue is without question an extremely excellent Makino. She looks the part, she acts the part, she's got that chemistry with the people she should have chemistry with, and she's certainly loveable!
Geum Jan Di is more tomboy-ish than Makino, in my opinion, just because of the way she acts and also her voice. I think Jan Di is more hard working, so that's probably why she's my IDOL. Makino is more like an actual ordinary girl (and her laugh is so cute!), so I dunno, take your pick. I like Jan Di more just cause I think she's more inspiring and her character's unique. Also, Makino does this hopping up & down, raise the sleeves and punch move; whereareas, Jan Di does a kick-ase spin kick when beating up Jun Pyo or anyone else--all the more reason to love Jan Di :D!!!! The only thing that bothers me a little bit (this kills me to say, because I love Jan Di!) but I didn't exactly feel a strong connection between her and Jun Pyo. AND I KNOW IT'S NOT JUST ME (LIE! I don't know that). When I think about it, I can't find a reason why... it's just not there... sadly. I really don't think it's Jun Pyo's fault, he was brilliant, but maybe it was because I actually wanted her to be with Ji Hoo so much that it killed Jan Di & Jun Pyo's bond together.
Domyoji Tsukasa (Matsumoto Jun)/Gu Jun Pyo (Lee Min Ho)
Okay, so I'll just come out with it, I started watching BBF because of Lee Min Ho (I watched BBF before HYD) so yea, ofcourse, you're gonna know who I like better :)
I first heard of Lee Min Ho by accidentally clicking on the wrong video when I was going to listen to 2NE1's mini album. The video I clicked on was a commercial for Cass Beer 2X ft. Jessica Gomes. I looked him up, and saw that he was part of a show called Boys Before Flowers which was a Korean Version of Hana Yori Dango, which at the time my sister kept recommending me to watch (HYD, that is). I decided to first watch BBF first (I personally believe I was right to do so) and uhh yea, I fell in love with it! :)
Anyway, I think Matsumoto Jun as Domyoji is more mean-faced, a little bit more aggressive, violent, hilarious when giddy, and a very fast runner, haha (if you have or are planning to watch HYD, when I say he runs fast, I'm talking about the Ken chase scene). There's not much to criticise, he's pretty much perfect for the role, except for the really good looks, which Matsumoto's sort of aight.
Lee Min Ho (Gu Jun Pyo) is very good looking (!!!), less aggressive, and more well-built (that don't make sense...) soo he looks stronger and more intimidating. I like how he doesn't have to beat people up for you to know that he's angry, you just know!... maybe it's his eyes? His clenched fists? ... not really sure. He may not be as goofy as Domyouji over Makino, but he sure is brainless about stuff like Jan Di liking him. I like him for this role better than Matsumoto cuzzzzz.... he looks better?? andd idk, he got me into these two shows sooo yah.
Hanazawa Rui (Oguri Shun)/Yoon Ji Hoo (Kim Hyun Joong)
Okay so, now down to a very critical character, Hanazawa Rui (Oguri Shun) a.k.a. Yoon Ji Hoo (Kim Hyun Joong).
Huh, I dont really know how to word this... I guess you could say that this is one of the characters that I have been looking forward to comparing. Why? Well just cuz idk, some people say that that they like Oguri better, and others say they like Hyun Joong better (I'm one of them).
Hanazawa Rui is more of the cool but quiet guy, who's sort of a reserved playboy(he makes out with two random girls, soo yea.. I would call him a playaaa!) type guy; while Ji Hoo is an actual quiet guy who-is just as cool-but not that I know I'm cool but I dont show off about it cause I'm supposed to be nice too thing that Hanazawa Rui has goin on. You still following me? But anyway, they're basically the same, except....
In the looks department, Ji Hoo is so much cuter in my opinion, just cause his smile (:D) warms my heart to death, and I dunno, I guess I like his character more since he's shyer than Rui. But for those girls who don't like the really sheepish type dude, I'm sure you probably like Rui better, yea??
And I know if you've watched till ep 14 of BBF, and seen HYD first, you're all TEAM RUI, but please give him a chance, he gets better I swear!!!!!!!!! I'm telling you girls, if you don't love Ji Hoo by the end of the season, I'm gonna come to your house and kill you becasue OBVIOUSLY there's something seriously wrong with your brain.
In reality, it's all HYD's writers' faults for making Rui suckkkkk. He's too cool! Rui should be more sad and lonely, am I right? REDO PLEASE!
One more thing: Kim Hyun Joong (Ji Hoo) also looks better in reality, and is very talented. He plays bass, guitar, violin (or so I've seen?), and the piano (i think??). He is also the leader of a successful Korean boy band SS501, can dance, sing and act. How much more perfect can it get??
Well anyway, I guess both guys are pretty awesome! Points for both shows! :)
Nishikado Sojiro (Matsuda Shota)/So Yi Jeong (Kim Bum)
Another great casting job for BBF! Between the two guys, I most definetely like Kim Bum better, because he looks sooo good! :) Plus, I think Kim Bum is a better actor since he seems smoother with the ladies. My first thoughts on seeing Sojiro was No, no, no. What's with the walrus bangs?!
But after watching. Matsuda Shota is pretty good, I won't take anything away from him; the only thing is that I don't see him as a player as much as Yi Jeong. I mean really... A playboy who practices TEA CEREMONY? WTF?!? Makes no sense to meee. Okay, so maybe it's not really HYD's fault for making him a seducer in the the whole tea thing, since they were just following the manga, so I won't use that as an excuse for liking Yi Jeong better. I will however, use the fact that Sojiro didn't get much camera time with the ladies he was with, as an excuse, because that totally didn't help portray his womanizer character.
Yi Jeong did get the camera time he needed for that, so yay BBF! I liked how the BBF writers gave Yi Jeong more of a story. With the father also being a ladies man, and Yi Jeong's mom dying (I actually didn't understand that part, the story they gave him was kind of sloppy, really) and making him fall in love with Jan Di's bff, Ga Eul (this was very very good on BBF's part, cause they made such a great couple); it definitely helped BBF become more entertaining.
Mimasaka Akira (Abe Tsuyoshi)/Song Woo Bin (Kim Joon)
Akira is this couger player guy who likes older women and Woo Bin is uhh.... well... uhmmm.... the only F4 guy who considers himself to be embarrassing (WTF, mann?). The only real similarity between the two is that they're in the mafia because of their fathers!
I'm gonna start with Woo Bin first, kay? kay. When I started watching BBF, my first thoughts about Woo Bin were that he was just there to fill in the space of the 4th member of the F4. But then he said this wonderful sentence: WOO! Yo yo yo, wass-up man? -And instantly turned into a vital BBF character who was almost as important as the rest of the F4. And you know
what that means, right? 5/5 casting for BBF! Helllllll yea! PERFECT SCORE!!!! YAYA!! And even though, he didn't have as much attenion on him on the show, and was only given a small I embarrass you guys! (you guys meaing F4) plot, which was totally random, the F4 would not be the amazing BBF F4 we all have come to love. Plus, he and his band, T-Max sing the opening theme song, Paradise, which is effing addicting and perfect and all you can ask for.
Akira is boring, and I hate his hair. Sorry HYD. Other than the part where you see him break up with a woman who wants to marry him after he graduates, and how he charms the weird dango shop owner (where Makino, and Yuki work) the writers could have killed him off, and I wouldn't give a sh*t. Just being honest.

Sigh. Sigh. Sigh. Sigh.
SO what should I tell you today? I have good news and bad (kind of) news. I'll start with the good.
Yesterday, I'm logging onto to one of my favourite websites, Stardoll.com, and yea just doing my regular stuff, when I remembered that I should check some Stardoll-based blogs to see if there are any new cheats or free stuff, or whatever. I go onto a site called http://www.gossip-stardoll.blogspot.com/ and the latest post stated,
"The writers for Gossips Next Star have been chosen!
30 writers have been added to the blog, and now it's getting started.
Next weekend, 10 of the writers will be eliminated.
You, the readers, will get to vote to see who should stay and who should go.
The person who is voted the best writer of the week will also get a small prize.
All the writers who were chosen have been sent an e-mail by Blogger inviting them to join the blog. You can start writing as soon as you get the e-mail."
and then I remembered. I applied for the writing job thingy! So I go check my email, searching for an email from blogger, and let me tell you, the moment I laid my eyes on that email marked, Fiona-You have been invited to join Fiona's blog, I think my heart stopped. BUT it was 4 in the morning, so I couldn't exactly go around the house running and screaming in joy. Oh my goodness, though, I was REALLY happy. Haha, and I bet you can guess what I did next..... I TWEETED IT! LOL! Ya so anyway, I'm all excited and and I wrote two posts (one was from my application)!
Okay, now the bad (kind of) news.
I'm giving up. No! Don't try to encourage me to keep going! CUZ I CAN'T. How am I supposed to keep coming up with new material, it's truly impossible. Anyway, I guess I'll try to keep in the competition (I'll probably be voted off soon), cuz it's pretty fun, and I can say that I tried. If I don't get chosen, I really don't care, so it's all good. I mean, just making it into the comp is good enough fo me, shawty! Plus, this blog is hard enough to manage anyway. Yea, that was actually hardly even bad (kind of) news.... heh heh..... alright, SEE YAH!
Oh yah, check out this outfit I drew on roiworld.com!http://www.roiworld.com/challenge/clg_view_dw.rwp?uniq=717824

I haven't finished the season yet, and I really don't want to. In the time span of 5 minutes, it can get me to feel giddy, then sad, then completely frustrated (mostly that!), then sad again. I'm telling you right now, if you ever happen to watch this tangled web of a show unfold, every... i don't know, 10 minutes ATLEAST will have you going Don't you dare do that or I'm going to KILL YOU!
And if you don't like it at first I'm begging you, please don't give up on it, please give it to episode 12, at least!
Mariah Carey's MUCH awaited video for 'Obsessed' is finally out! Yayyyyy! And you bet it has all the Eminem mocking you imagined!
Soo, I'm sure you've heard that this song is supposedly about Eminem. But ofcourse, I wasn't sure, so I went and dug up some info for yalls. Okay, back in 2001/2002 Mariah and Em were secretly dating or something and Eminem exposed to the media that they were together, once they broke up (2002). I guess he was all mad at her, and kept dissing her and whatnot, and then in his new album Relapse he raps in 'Bagpipes from Baghdad' Mariah, what ever happened to us, why did we have to break up… Nick Cannon better back the fuck up. I’m not playing, I want her back, you punk. Jeez, a little vicious Eminem! Sooo ya, if you want to know more you can read these articles where I got all the dirt I needed!
In the video, Mariah even mocks Eminem, as she dresses up like a stalker in a very Eminem-looking look (teehee).
Check out the video here

So okay. I know I promised to blog about Asian stuff, but I just can't help it, when there is a new music video (i love to blog about those!) out there, sitting, waiting for me to post about their fabulosity, you know I gotta do it! It's mandatory procedure! IT'S A NECESSITY TO THIS BLOG.
So blame the nonasian-posts-that-i-said-i-wouldn't-write all on Lily Allen. Because she just came out with a new music video (in korea or some other asian place, they say 'MV'... that's something for ya!) so I had to break my promise, and that basically got me back into the world of new music videos. So sorry.
The music video is for her new song, '22'. Its supposed to be officially released on August 25, but the Zoot Pod is just soo exclusive (for you non-sarcastic peeps, I'm lying.) that I have the music video right HERE! Lily looks fabulous, and well, my only criticism is that don't really want to see her standing in front of the mirror for more than half the song! C'MONN!

Hey guys, so sorry that I haven't posted in such a long time! I've just been so
Also, this is my 100th post!!!!!!! OMG, "you listen to that b*tch?!" (that's a kanye west lyric, sorry). And if you noticed, the way I wrote it flowwwsss into the next sentence, or paragraph (idk, take your pick)... or so I think? Well, I know one thing; I worked hard to get it in the flowy way, so you know what? APPRECIATE IT! :) [okay, i read it over... anddd this really doesn't make any sense :(]
Alright, here's a warning: the upcoming posts will be about K-pop and all of its wonderfullness, so if you really don't give a donkey, I suggest you LEAVE. (But actually don't cuz I don't really have many readers, hehe)

Pretty good ace-kicking day today! Okay let me start at Monday. My class is hit with 2 projects (and me, well I had 3 because I was late on one, due 2 weeks before...). One project was an Anthology, where you had to pick a topic and write a prologue, 2 journals, 5 or 6 poems, an essay, a short story, and an epilogue, all the while making it look like a scrapbook; the other project was for Geography, in which you had to pretend you were being forced out of Canada or the US, and had to pick 3 countries to move to, compare them, grade them, pick the one you thought best and write how and why you made your decision; and my extra project was also for Geography; it was supposed to be just a simple poster, but my friends and I were kindof dumb and decided to make a movie, which turned into an epic fail (the camera got soooo messed) and well, we ended up after filming EVERY SCENE WE NEEDED, dropping the project because the camera went wierd and had one night to do the poster project. Anyway, so I'm off to work for the rest of the week...blah, blah blah, and come Wednesday, I was like SHOOT. Everything's due tomorrow! (Because the teachers' deadline was Friday for Report Cards). So I was in major stress mode--because knowing me, I procrastinated and didn't do anything for all of Monday and Tuesday--and I pulled an all-nighter so I could finish my projects. Turns out, I only finished one [the Geo one (not the movie) that was very well done by the way] and was late for school, again. because I was picking up scrapbooking supplies for my anthology. When I got to school, the teachers organized this thing, so that if you were done ALL OF YOUR WORK you could go relax and watch movies. If not, you were in the computer lab working your butt off, or in other people's cases, socializing. I worked my butt off ofcourse, still didn't finish, and was pretty damn grumpy for when we did Track and Field (partly because I lost my lucky shoes for Track & Field, that I found back at home later that day) and refused to do anything. Then, on that night, I was planning to pull myself through another all-nighter, even though I knew the official Track & Field school meet was the next day, and I had no sleep the night before. I worked, worked, worked, like friggin hard, and accidentally fell asleep at 3 AM. I woke up at 7 AM, angry at myself for falling asleep, skipped breakfast, and finished the rest of the writing for my anthology. I got all that I needed (supplies, and everything) plus the stuff for track and field, and then headed to school. There, my teacher allowed me to work on my project in between events, and after doing this all day (and skipping all snack and lunch breaks), I finished, with about 40 minutes to spare! During that 40 minutes, we finished off the field events.
Unbelievably, I got through the day without passing out or falling asleep! I did all the events except the 15oo m, and the 800 m. I did about 15 minutes of high jump, with like 1 min set on me--because I jump from the left side, so lefties had to wait for the righties to finish their first jumps--made it, then left. *Sigh.* I wished I finished it!! I only jumped 1.05 m! Why did I leave??????? oh ya, 'cause their organizing was sh*t (I don't even want to go into details). I made the 100 m, relay team, running long jump, and (hopefully) triple jump!
YAYYYYYY! This was our last week of homework. Ugh, relieeffff!!!!! IM FREE.
Now, I'm going to eat. Then I'm going to sleep. PIISU.

Okay, if the music posts keep coming, this blog will seriously die, along with my grade average (ahaa!!), but I honestly just can't help it!!!!!there's so much good music, anddd it never stops, and it's so easy to post about music, rather than fashion, because all you need is ONE picture, and a music video (or perhaps not...) and voila! A new post! With fashion, there's like 5 billion pictures, that I would need to upload onto photobucket, so the picture(s) can be of good quality! Hmmmph, I'm just super lazy, that's all.
Anywaayy, I've got another music video for you (err for me, seeing as probably nobody visits this blog)! And it's from METRICCCC!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Have I mentioned I loved them? Yea like 900 times Oh... Well, I love them. Their second music video from their latest album Fantasies (so much itallics use.. I'm not sure if this post can take anymore!!), "Sick Muse" shows the band jumping around, rockin' out, you know how it is. A very simple music video, that not only makes me smile, but suits the song quite well, I must say. So, please, enjoy.
ARTICLE: PRETTY MUCH AMAZING
"Paparazzi" by Lady Gaga
Perez Hilton himself premiered the lavish new music video by the eccentric and grandiloquent Lady GaGa. The subject is “Paparazzi,” GaGa’s latest UK single. The song is easily the most personable track on The Fame, but far from my favorite. In his premiere blog post, the self-anointed Queen of All Media exclaims:
It is her strongest work to date. It is a mini-film. It is art. It is visual pornography. It is satire. It is commentary. It is brilliant!
Aside from the visual pornography remark (what the hell is that Perez?), Queen P is not far off the mark. This indeed is GaGa’s strongest video to date. It is certainly an entertaining mini-film, reminiscent of Michael Jackson’s love affair with 15-minute-film making. The video is definitely commenting on what it is to be famous in this day and age, and Lady GaGa makes fun of the silly idea by busting a Britney.
Hopefully with this video GaGa finally got her point across — the same statement that is riddled throughout her album:
This idea of ‘The Fame’ runs through and through. Basically, if you have nothing—no money, no fame—you can still feel beautiful and dirty rich. It’s about making choices, and having references—things you pull from your life that you believe in. It’s about self-discovery and being creative. The record is slightly focused, but it’s also eclectic. The music is intended to inspire people to feel a certain way about themselves, so they’ll be able to encompass, in their own lives, a sense of inner fame that they can project to the world, and the carefree nature of the album is a reflection of that aura. I like to funnel interesting ideas to the rest of the world through a pop lens.

"Laughing With" by Regina Spektor; her new single from her upcoming album Far coming out in June.
Urrggh, I sort of hate how The Zoot is turning into a crappy music blog. I need variety!!!!!! But I have two new music videos for you today, so blehhhhhhhh.
The Pussycat Dolls have a new single! Their second single from Doll Domination 2.0. (Never heard of it? Me neither.) When I hear this new single from The Pussycat Dolls, I don't really know what to think. It had some disco-modern flare to it, and a cover of I Will Survive but I'm not sure if I like it or not. For now though, it kind of sucks. Disco is not exactly for them, but whatever... they did this to themselves.
Also, it was fun, and different for the Pussycat Dolls - and OMG THEY NEED TO KICK NICOLE OUT OF THE LEAD POSITION!!! I am sooooo sick of her. I think she's the reason behind me sort of not liking them right now. She's holding them back. Leave Nicole!!! Buuttttt..... I have to admit, she sounds pretty good here.
But honestly, I really don't know if this song's gonna be a hit or not. We'll just have to wait and find out, I guess. The video, I love though; and the dancing was awesome, as always! It's directed by Rich Lee, who also directed Fergie's Clumsy video. :)

I feel really lazy today after a super busy weekend, so short post today! Beyonce, has just released her new music video, "Ego". When I first listened to it, I was like boorrringgg, but then I guess you could say the song picked up, and it sort of grew a bit more on me. Who knows, maybe a few more listens and I'll be obsessed with it (just like her movie!). In the vid, Beyonce's sporting her leotard look (Lady Gaga and Madonna anyone?) just like in Single Ladies! WHOO.

HEIDI PRATT?! Really? Heidi Pratt? NOOOO! Just keep it Heidi Montag pleasee. I can't even begin to tell you about the video for her new song. It's like, another Higher. Omg, it's Higher Pt. 2. I'm not kidding! And the song - it really wasn't all that bad, but the video - What. The. Fuddggge. Her.. her birdhands, her awful lip-synching, and her seeming-to-be-trapped-in-a-cage type movement. Like really, she looks so awkward, lying on that hammock. And then the rope. What the heck is with that? Is it supposed to be some type of new stripper pole, because it really is not working for me. Really. Also, I'm having a huge problem with the person filming this - oh gosh, it's horrible.

I NEED to post something.
So here's the sadness of how wasteful my life is. Just be glad you don't wake up and watch this for some stupid reason, as I did. There is certainly nothing wrong with two pregnant women dancing. There is, however, probably something wrong with two pregnant girls, which they appear to be, dancing, and at any rate, there's something wrong with anyone dancing to the song "Fergalicious."

Boom Boom Pow Video! WOO!
Aagh! I love the video so much, I don't know, maybe I just really miss The Black Eyed Peas but I love the video!! Or maybe its the song, its sooo good! I know I knocked it down in a previous post, but it's definitely grown on me.
Random: Video apparently is supposed to represent BEP's rebirth into the digital afterlife' according to Fergi ferg.
Check out this behind the video video (teehee)
She also says that BEP has never really fit in. WTF. LIES!

Alright got a new Tuesday video for you - GASP! Omg, I should totally do a Tuesday video thing each week, oh that freakin awesome. Yes, that's a good idea. omg, I'm excited! lol
Butt, anyways, new video. Kanye West. Amazing. It's uhh what would you call it...amazing? oh yea, that's it. The video is aight, mmm, I sort of expected more from Kanye. Idk, maybe I'm just not 'artististic' enough to see it, but its kindof boring to me... I mean, really all you see is scenery, silhouettes, and Kanye in the forest. Fun. But otherwise, I love the song, so...*shrug*

A vast majority of this I'm-mad-at-you mood I'm in, goes to my dad, who is killing my buzz for sure. Why? Oh I don't know why. You tell me why. No. The big guns upstairs knows why. *Breathe. Breathe.* Let me guess... Well, I think this all started when I got home, and my dad said something about how I eat too much. Oh yeah. That was definetely it. I think I was in a grumpy mood cuz i was tired from working (almost) all day and vacuuming with this huge, heavy-*ss vazuum that was blowing hot air at me and making me fustrated as heck. So of course when i finally get home, my dad makes that remark, and strike! You're out. Now I'm pissed. This actually happened four hours ago, but over that time period in between my dad managed to squeeze in the same comment about me (and others) two more times. How delightful. Then during dinner, he's telling me that Mars has water on it and how the weather is cold. "It's like -100 C there." is exactly what he said actually. He also is watching some movie with Kate Beckinsale (that he wouldn't tell me the name of the movie) and he basically kept saying this: "oh this guy. Crazy! He`s so crazy. AAAHH! oh noo! What is he doing? He's crazy! Oh, he's crazy. This guy. People are crazy. Oh my gosh, what's he gonna do? Oh no!! He's gonna kill her. He's crazy!" So. Do you see what I'm getting at? Ya. Okay. Crazy. I rolled my eyes at that quite a few times, and he probably saw... yikes!
Okay. I'm not going to go on and rant about this anymore. But basically I wanted him to shut the beep up. But it's all good now. I feel better. Yay! Therapy!
P.S. my brother's watching me. It's kind of making me mad. :)

To top it all off, I also bought.....wait for it....... THE NEW METRIC CD, FANTASIES!!!!!!! It really was the cherry on top of the cake. And, Oh. My. Gosh. It is astronomicallly amazing. Like absolutely no bad songs. The songs do kind of sound quite similar, but still, seperately you'll notice the differences, and they're all really superb. My favourite songs off the album, would have to be Satellite Mind, Gold Guns Girls, Collect Call and Front Row. Currently in order as:
1. Gold Guns Girls
2. Collect Call
3. Satellite Mind
4. Front Row
But they're all pretty much high up there as my faves.
Worst song? (still awesome, mind you) Stadium Love. When a good song is one of the worst songs, that's gotta mean it's gooooddd. Like Tootsie-Roll, skittles loving good.
But down to the real critism. Fantasies sounds alot like Live It Out--ya ya, that's their sound, that's what they're best at, I get it. But I kindof want more of the Old World Underground... material. I don't know, just me. (You might be wondering; is there even a difference between OWU and LIO? Yes, there is indeed.) Uhmm, like the Yeah, Yeah, Yeahs; they sort of changed their sound a bit, and it worked out nicely for them! I mean, It's Blitz is really good. So if Metric is going to have a next album (hopefully they will, but let's not get ahead of ourselves) I think they may need to reinvent themselves a little. Don't ask me how, but I'm sure they'll find a way because I mean, It's Metric, people. They're magical.
The intoxicating, infectious singles, Help, I'm Alive and Gimme Sympathy (can I just say I hate that gimme! You're not Britney Spears, Metric.) are definitely good songs, but the one that's stuck with me the most is probably Collect Call, although it's not my #1 favourite on the album. It's one of those slow-to fast songs that I really love, and the lyrics are great, kind of reminds my of Dead Disco probably because 'disco', and in Collect Call, Haines sings 'got to make them move'. Emily is great as always, her voice nicely contrasts with a pretty guitar-based instrumental sound.
Fantasies, is pretty upbeat, the only real ominous song would have to be Blindness. The lyrics are simple enough to be incredulously deep. But uhmm, all in all, Fantasies is more of a head-bobbing, finger-tapping album, not really an album that will change your life, but a still a good one to listen to on a night with no stars. So, you keep your fantasies till then.
"Stadium Love" - Metric (give it a listen! it's so good!)

Okay, Eminem's new comeback video after a... 4? 5 year hiatus? is "We Made You". The song andd video is somewhat irritating seeing as I've seen Eminem do this a million times over and over again. When will it end with him??!!? I thought it already did, but I guess I was wrong. Truthfully, I kindof like the song... orr, maybe it's becasue BOBBY LEE IS IN THE VIDEO!!! Wahhh??? I know. Crazy. A little annoying, yes, but still just as awesome as ever. I think Crack A Bottle should've been Slim Shady's first single (after his break). I mean, it's way more mature and modern, i guesss, becasue 2009 is the fucha ofcoursee.
Video: 6/10 (I would've given a 5, but Bobby Lee is just too awesome for that)
New Where the Wild Things Are poster, you guys. Perhaps a little more conservative than the original, no screaming children or artfully cropped monster faces, just your typical fantastical creature hiding behind a scratched up tree in a mystical autumn forest. You know, movie poster stuff. No, this is so great. What a great poster.
It's almost getting to the point where I want this movie to make at least one mis-step. Like, say, a furry promotional condom. And on the inside of the package it says "UNLEASH YOUR BEAST." Just to get expectations back in line with reality. After a heart-crushing trailer, and two great posters, things are already getting out of hand. Judging by the Internet reaction, America is thisclose to having Where the Wild Things Are replace Barack Obama as president of the United States, and the internet LOVES Barack Obama.
Whatever. Let's just be excited, right? Let's Paint, Exercise, and Be Excited about Where the Wild Things Are, in theaters October 16, 2009. We can do it all!
Also, obsessed with this:
"Back Together" by Timbaland.

In the video, I was kindof confused as to why Kanye West was comfortable doing those touchy scenes. You know, with his heartbreak and all? anh.
- Welcome To The Zoot Pod
Have you seen this movie trailer yet? Where The Wild Things Are?! Omg! It looks reallyyy good! I think the movie is based on the book " ", which I remember reading in like Kindergarden - it's a seriously epic book. And the monsters here, too, I'm glad they stay true to their original forms (yay!) and well, the boy here looks absolutely perfect for the role. I didn't even know the children's book was made into a movie. I'm actually totally excited to see this - I hope it comes to my town!

Me: (Sigh) I think I'm gonna buy Twilight.
Tiff: You really want it that much?
Me: (Laughs) Yea, I really like it.
Tiff: Hmm...well, mom already bought it.
Me: What? (Grins) Rh..rh..rreaally?
Me: Wh-where is it?
Tiff: It's upstairs in mom's room.
Me: ZOMG! (heads upstairs to mother's room, doesn't find it, goes downstairs) It's not there. I couldn't find it.
Tiff: I'unno. (shrugs)
Me: Mom? Did you buy Twilight?
Mom: Yes. $20 at Costco, can you believe it?
Me: Omg, really? That's expensive... should've went to Wal-Mart. So where is it?
Mom: Oh it's in the car, i forgot to take it out.
Me: Oh okay. Don't return it okay?
So I'm all happy today, until tonight...
Me: Oh, mom! Do you still hve the Twilight movie?
Mom: Oh, no I returned it.
WTF!!!!!!! AFTER I SPECIFALLY ASK HER NOT TO SHE DOES ANYWAY!!!!!
Me: WHAT?! WHY? I told you not to! (yes, I was being a spoiled b*tch)
Mom: Dad said to return it and wait till you can get it cheaper at Blockbuster.
Me: But those are used. The ones they sell used to be the ones you could rent. People take them home, and ruin them! They're so scratchy!
UGHHHHH. FINE. I'll just buy my own. In collectors edition. HA.

When I first saw the movie, I thought, "Wow. This movie sort of sucks. I mean, I want to like it, but I can't seem to." Well, that thought is LONG GONE. I actually really like that dang movie (but it still sucks in a way). Like, the movie is not so great, but it is also like really good at the same time. It's intricate, so that the first time you see it, it's aight, but then by the second time, it uses its little vampire powers to lure you in. And now, I'm hooked. Like HOOKED, BUDDYY. Gosh, I'm so obsessed with this movie. It almost makes me mad.
Anyway, I just wanted to go through a few parts of the movie for you all a.k.a. ME. Also, this post might contain spoilers! So watch out!
1) When Bella first walks into biology class, she sees that Edward is in that class too. As she's looking at him, she walks by a fan that blows her "scent" towards him, and he smells it, and is so repulsed (er, seems to be). Like, "What is that horrible stench? Ugh! Bella! Wear some deoderant! Gosh, you REEK!!! OMG OMG OMG, YOU SMELL SO BAD. OMG!!" His expression was funny.
Haha! Notice the owl in the background? Trippy...
Check out this guy, looking at Bella, lol, idky but it makes me laugh!
2) When Edward finally talks to Bella, he's supposed to be all polite and stuff, but instead he just looked and sounded like some foreign kid! OMG! This was the funniest thing ever! "Hello!" is what Edward says below.
4) In the movie, when you first see Carlisle (Edward's Dad), he makes this like grand entrance into the hospital room to check up on Bella. Ahahaha, its like the best simplest entrance ever.
Edward's brother, Emmett is a little odd too. Haha, he was just standing there, and then another brother parks the car, and Emmett jumps out and walks off--book in hand--like that was normal.
5)Taylor Lautner looks hunkier with long hair. Haha, I laughed alot when I saw him with long hair. He doesnt look too bad in this pic, but in the movie, he looks really bizarre.
6)Taylor plays Jacob Black in the movie, who is a Quileute Indian/Aboriginal, and in the movie, as he is telling Bella the legend of how the Quileutes descended from werewolves, they show this wonderful scene:
YES I'M SURE, THAT BECAUSE THEY DESCENDED FROM WOLVES THAT THEY WORE TRIBAL WOLF HATS.
"Oh wise one, we must show our brotherhood with the wolves by wearing these..."
"Good idea, young Gelar."
Oh cut the crap! The costume peeps did NOT have to put in those hats. But it was funny.
Also, another problem with the legend scene...
*shakes head in disappointment and laughter*
7) Lol! Apparently this guy is thinking about cats. "Doesn't he look like he's thinking about cats?!" -Catherine Hardwicke.
Okay, so this is basically the part where I get too lazy to write little blurbs about each of the photos, so instead all just throw them to here, for your enjoyment! :) All's good!
THE BAD VAMPS!
Alright, now that that's over with, I have two more pics for you that have nothing to do with the story, and don't worry it's almost over! :)
Alice Cullen, err Ashley Greene looks like Coco Rocha. Well, I think so.
And lastly, Eric in the movie, one of Bella's friends who is played by Justin Chon, weirdly resembles Onch or "OnchMovement"(<--Youtube) from the reality TV show "Paris Hilton's My New BFF". Also, don't you find it peculiar that Justin's last name is CHON; the same letters used in ONCH. What's up with that huh? If they're not the same person, they're definitely long lost twin brothers. FO SHO.
To leave you off with more tastes of Twilight, here is the opening song which I love.
