Blast from the past…

August 14, 2011 at 2:15 am (Splatterhouse)

I’ve recently gotten into x-boxing and I like a few games, Tekken, Gears of War, Mortal Combat, ❤ Guitar Hero <3. But theres one game I used to play when I was about 8 on my Sega MegaDrive called Splatterhouse. This game had the animation of the very first Mario game, but it was like the Mario world mixed with your childhood nightmares!!! Hahaha why my mum thought it was a good idea to buy an 8 year old girl Splatterhouse i don’t know!! But yeah, eventually after searching like a mother fucker, my boyf finally found the new version of Splatterhouse for the X-box!!! It is incredibly, you can even unlock all the old game versions…so i actually get to step back in time, and play like an 8 year old!!!

The original version i had as a little girly…

The new version…but no matter how scary they make it, nothing will scare me like the original, with those monotone soundtracks, and vibrant guttural colours…

Hearts in Atlantis

August 8, 2011 at 12:23 am (Hearts in Atlantis, magic, Stephen King)

I know I go on and on about how incredible Mr Stephen King is, and yet again I’m going to tell you again 🙂 Finished reading Hearts in Atlantis a few days ago and…I feel that whenever I read a book by King that is not a typical horror story, I always feel that I’ve stumbled upon an unknown secret type of magic. Like only I have experienced this magical spirit that his stories evoke…it always leaves me with a tingly sparkly kind of feeling 🙂
I plead and urge you to pick up a King book and get ready to absorb the magic!!!

Elfen Lied

July 16, 2011 at 5:59 pm (Elfen Lied, Lucy, Nana)

I had the entire Elfen Lied series bought for me for Christmas, and recently I got around to watching it all. My fucking god, I don’t think I’ve seen any anime more beautiful, more perfect!! I think visually it’s stunning, and the music is equally fitting. The starting theme is incredible I fell in love with it a little bit more each episode I watched!!! Elfen Lied literally has everything life has to offer, but is given to us in such a beautiful way. I feel like I relate to both Lucy and Nana. I find it hard to not love Lucy even when she’s evil and ripping people apart 🙂 This anime has love, hate, portrayal, death, destruction, friendship, tabboo’s, sadness, happiness need i go on?

Even if your not into Anime I suggest this as a one to watch, the entire series won’t even take you a whole day to watch, and the minute it’s finished I guarantee you’ll want to watch it all over again.

The end…

July 16, 2011 at 5:41 pm (Batman Dark Knight Rises trailer, Harry Potter)

Last night went to see the final Harry Potter movie 😦 Was super excited as I have grown up with the books, and although the films are in no way as good as the books, they are still enjoyable 😀 But was sad as this was the last one…no more…it is the end.It was an awesome film, and although I bitched and moaned about the ending when I read the book, I guess there was no better way to end the story.

However the other exciting news was I got to see the new unreleased Batman trailer!!! I have the worst memory of literally every living person on the planet, so as soon as I watched it I said to my friends, My boy’fs going to kill me! He’s the biggest Batman fan I know, whether it be in comics, films or television. As soon as I walked through the door I was quizzed on every second of the trailer, and of course being me, I couldn’t remember hardly anything of the 20 or so second trailer lol.

Whoopsy!

A Hobbit’s Tale

July 16, 2011 at 5:31 pm (JRRTolkien, Lord of the Rings, Lord of the Rings 'War in the North' game, Peter Jackson, The Hobbit)

I’m a huge HUGE fan of Lord of the Rings, and so obviously I love the Hobbit just as much. Read the Hobbit when I was about 8 or 9 and instantly fell in love with it. So you can only imagine my excitement when I found out that they were finally making The Hobbit!!!! With the genius that is Peter Jackson coming back to grace us with his goodness 🙂
The dwarves are looking incredible not that i was expecting any less!!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

And for all you gamer/Lord of the rings fans I came across this little beauty a few weeks back…im not a massive gamer, but i feel like i HAVE to have this!!! 😀
The new Lord of the Rings game ‘War in the North’ is the untold story, purely told through the medium of game 😀 And look how beautiful the collection is!!! It is the limited edition pack, and i imagine it to be pretty pricey…but fuck it…i HAVE TO HAVE THIS!!!

And just for the pure hell of it… 🙂

X-Men have arrived

June 22, 2011 at 8:56 pm (X-Men First Class)

Went to see X-Men: First Class on Saturday, was pretty excited because I loved the other X-Men films…but it was so much more than I was expecting!!! Haven’t really ever read any X-Men comics, apart from Old Man Logan, but that doesn’t really involve the X-Men. Thought the casting was awesome, the relationship between Professor X and Magneto was perfect, because of the understanding and their differences. Loved how they went into Magneto’s past!!! Loved the intro to new characters that we haven’t seen in the movies before. The story line of the film itself, was better than all the other X-Men film’s and to be honest compared to all the other Marvel films, this film by far blows all the others out of the water!!! Such an incredible idea, Sebastian Shaw’s is such a bastard, and even though my boyf loved him…I HATE HIM!!! Love the idea of the Hellfire Club, although they didn’t really go to much into it…i think it was just enough 🙂 Can’t wait for the next instalment!!!

Def want to go see this film again!!! AND i want to start reading New X-men, and House of M, will let you know what i think 🙂

Ghost World

June 21, 2011 at 1:13 am (Dan Clowes, Ghost World, Thora Birch)

Just finished reading Dan Clowes’ Ghost World. Loooooooooved it!!! Clowes has this way of letting his character Enid talk and talk and talk…but everything you feel comes from the things that’s not being said. It’s almost awkward right the way through, and it makes the characters more believable. Like we’ve all met somebody like Enid at some point, and Clowes said he based Enid on a girl (or many girls) he met while in art college. Typical clichés, people wanting to be anti establishment, while calling everybody else posers, and this is Enid. All the while, she makes herself look more and more like a poser as the book goes on. And although Enid is a bitch…I still love her!!! It’s hard not to 🙂 In a weird way, Enid and Becky reminds me of me and my best friend, who I’ve known for about fifteen years!!! 🙂

Love the art too, it’s simplistic to the point of perfection! And fits the awkwardness of Ghost World perfectly!!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And just thought I’d add…bought and watched the film sometime last year, and Thora Birch as Enid is perfection!!! She’s got this whole Velma Dinkley thing going on from scooby doo….
Very Nice 😉

Book Worm

June 21, 2011 at 12:46 am (Alice Walker, The Color Purple)

Been reading tons and TONS of stuff the last couple of days!!! My eyes feel like they’ve dried up from all the god damn reading, but I don’t even care!! 😛 Had to read The Color Purple by Alice Walker for an essay for uni, wasn’t really looking forward to it, as there was a LOAD of other stuff id much prefer to be reading. But I started it last night, and finished the entire book in about 2-3 hours, granted it isn’t a huge book, but i literally couldn’t put it down. Its so bloody compelling!! Even though to begin with, the dialect of Celia (the main character) was hard to get used to, she’s from the deep South and has a very strong accent…after a few pages…that just added to the emotion and atmosphere of it.
Walker touches upon everything two people could possibly experience, two sisters Celia and Nettie separated since childhood,  living and experiencing life on seperate sides of the world…but never forgetting one another. The entire book is written in the form of letters, and at first I though ugh…hope its not like this all the way through, but I don’t think the book could have worked better if it was written any other way.
Incredible!!!
Its moving from start to finish and all the way in between, it’s sad, it’s harrowing, it’s inspirational, it’s emotional, it’s heart warming, it made me feel angry because i wanted to shake Celia up and be like WAKE UP!!!YOUR LIFE IS PASSING YOU BY!!! But on the other hand it made me think the worst day of my life couldn’t compare to the crap Celia had to put up with everyday of her life!!

Don’t want to give to much away, but once again im going to tell you to READ IT!!! 😀
