Of Pandorum, Pandora Hearts and a fair bit of pandemonium.

Starting off with the lousy stuff that happened over the weekend....I'm gonna make it short. Basically, I enlisted for a competition after being persuaded, resulting in my studying of a looooooooong list of stuff to memorise, so I won't screw up and embarrass myself or my team. Then came competition day. Person-in-charge told me it starts 1pm...I need to be there by 12.30 for registration, so I took note.

11.15 a.m. Friend calls....friend asked me why I'm not there yet, competition starting soon. I stoned...then I facevaulted. Then I yelled "What!?" into my friend's ear. Turned out they changed the competition time to 11.30 a.m. and person-in-charge forgot to tell me.

I called person-in-charge to confirm the new time...to see if something can be done about it so I can rush there...Mind you, I live far from te place too...takes half an hour to get there. So after discussing it with the organisers, person-in-charge called me back and said they're starting in 10-15 mins and if I can make it.

.................

Of course not! No matter how I rush, a 30-minute journey won't miraculously shorten into 10! And thanks to his blunder, my mum got pissed...I got pissed. Told them to take me off the team, coz there's no way I'd make it. Really frustrated coz I wasted my time and energy. Honestly, was so disappointed in the person. Complained to a few people...mood basically sucked the whole day.

Next, moving on to Pandorum. Caught the movie yesterday...it wasn't too bad, but has a fair bit of disgusting gore. The storyline in itself is decent. It's Resident Evil in space...with a little psychological thriller twist towards the end. Adrenaline rush from the start, but nothing that's like...mind-blowing...nothing mind-numbing either, so it's an average, I'd wager.

Mainly involved "Oh!" "Eep!" "Ewww..." "Ugh..." and "Dear God, I hate it when they do that!" kind of scenes. Don't watch if you have a weak stomach, or can't stand spurting blood, blatant violence and senseless killing.

Up to the final one...well, things have been in a chaotic mess since weeks before. Everything is rushing to a peak now...work is all over the place, things to do have increased, my schedule is messed up and I can no longer keep up with it all with just my mind. Stuff happening a little too quickly, but all I need to do is hold out a week...just one week and I should have some room to breathe by the next week.

Oh wait...there's a bit of good news in here. I finally managed to download Pandora Hearts soudntrack. I love Kajiura Yuki...her music is...just beautiful. Now, if I can free up time to watch them episodes...and read the update in manga...

Ouch...

Accidentally spilled very hot tea from the kettle onto my hand. Owie...hurts a hell lot, but at least it was not oil. Left hand is still tingling and feeling a little raw....free nerve endings firing off signals like nobody's business. But it doesn't look too bad. Hopefully it will get better by tomorrow! ><

Finally found a PS2

Over the long weekend, I have finally managed to get my hands on a PS2...T_T

So yes....I can finally play ToA and Star Ocean again. Only thing is the machine is located in my uncle's house...in the depths of Puchong. But oh well! It's still within reach~~

ALBEL-SAMA~~~~~ I missed seeing you~~~

On a side note, saw a PS3 on display the other day...together with some games. Holy cow, some of them games cost over RM200 *dies*. Okay, I think this is a sign...invest in a Wii....

Gamers, go watch Gamer

SERIOUSLY.

SPOILER ALERTCollapse )

At first glance, Gamer might look like your run-of-the-mill action movie, complete with fast-paced gun action and pretty gross carnage. It looks brainless, but there is an underlined issue of gaming violence and what it does to people. If you're a psych student like me, you know desensitization and dehumanization.

You can watch it for the bloody galore of it all, but you can also think of the implications the movie has about media violence. Gamer gives us a look at how it's like for the person playing the convict and the convict playing the game. For Tillman, the pain, deaths and violence are very, very real. He carries a psychological burden of having to go into the battlefield...not knowing how many people he would have to kill, not knowing when he would be killed. Yet, his player (a 17-year-old rich brat, Simon) treated the game exactly as it was...a game.

The truth is, no one cared who dies in the game. Blood, gore, violence....the adrenaline rush, that's what drives the population wild every time they watch a live session of Slayers. And to them, Kable is like a shipped hero of that game. So real people died on the other side of the screen...so what, they were criminals waiting to die anyway. That's what's being portrayed in the movie...and it reminds me how human beings remain the cruellest creatures on earth.

Gamer is not a movie for you if you can't stand seeing body parts flying off, or blood spattered all over the place. It's also not for you if you have issues with sexual scenes, since a few players of Society look like their sole purpose in the game is to order their avvies (for the lack of better words) to get laid and watch. Granted, they never did get there, but personally, I found the controller of Tillman's wife really gross.

That aside, it makes for a pretty thoughtful watch...for an action movie anyway.

I think...

Ah...my gaming needs...

At a friend's place, doing meh own thing lol. Another friend was squeeing about Bakemonogatari...now I wanna watch it...haih...I'm so behind with my anime watchlist. Bleh...

Ever since my PS2 kong-ed out, I'm a bit...despondent about the number of games I haven't completed on it yet. I still have some games I haven't finished/haven't played/want to replay on that machine. So yeah, hoping for news of recovery.

Side note, FF VII compilation...T_T T_T I WAAAAAAAANNNNNNNTTTTT~~~~
But it's in Blu-ray, heard that it's released on DVD...but costs too much. *sniff sniff* Argh...I really, really, desperately want...if not just to see Zax covering for Cloud...and the edited scenes in AC...with actual blood *sniffs*

Side note again, family thinking of PS3, but 4 kids + different gaming preferences + game prices = no go. I wonder if I can convince them to get a Wii...coz Tales of Graces is coming out on Wii. Plus I am severely addicted to the Harvest Moon series...I am despo enough to buy the Wii, JUST TO PLAY TREE OF TRANQUILITY!!! And there's of course LoZ, which someone somehow deleted after I fought so hard to the final stages T_T. So yeah...trying to see which is a better investment...

Bleh...I shall go satisfy myself with some computer game for now...

What, it's a crime to be cheerful now?

私ってバカ?

For one moment, I seriously thought I must be stupid to be asking myself some unanswerable (if that word even exist) questions. Not inclusive of the time when I do a lot of bakawarai...on top of acting like a total moron when in hyper mode.

Hmm...maybe it is time to tone down on the hyper-ness. But, but! How can I do that?? That's like telling me not to eat! >.< I can try to be less reactive to whatever's happening, but you can't tell me it's wrong to genuinely be happy or laugh at something I really find funny! T_T Now I don't even have the freedom to laugh and be insanely happy??

After being MIA for 97 weeks (or so says LJ), I'm finally back on the very persistent efforts of gerai_neon making me use LJ...again.

Well, what do I say? I have been...side-tracked by loads of other things...and I never had the kind of "discipline" neon has with LJ lol! But I guess it's good to come back. Nevertheless...I wonder if I'm gonna get bombed by people who wondered if I disappeared down Bermuda.

Anyhoo...am back now...and hopefully will be able to remember to update often XD My to-do list is ridiculously long this year. Bye bye freedom T_T
