I just finished watching 'Fucking Amal' (aka 'Show Me Love') for the third time. It's a Swedish movie about two young girls living in a small town. Agnes doesn't have any friends and is constantly being teased at school, and has been in love with the popular girl, Elin, who drinks and parties with an older crowd. Agnes barely registers in Elin's mind, until the night she ends up going to Agnes' birthday party on a whim, and being dared to kiss her. From then on it's a struggle for her to come to terms with the fact that she has feelings for another girl.

Anyway, I saw this movie twice about 5 or 6 years ago, and at that stage my thought pattern ended at "Awesome! They're making out!". Watching it now, it means a lot more to me. Even though it was all in Swedish, having to read the subtitles didn't take away from the quality of the movie, and a lot of the time I felt that the subtitles weren't even entirely necessary. It was less about what was being said and more about the emotion behind it, and both of the actresses did an amazing job at conveying that. Especially my favourite of the two, Alexandra Dahlstrom. Look at the pretty:

What can I say? I have a thing for tomboys.

So anyway, if you're a fan of lesbians and foreign films (or even just lesbians - I don't normally like foreign films) then I would recommend Fucking Amal. It's beautiful.

How much am I in love with the show Heroes?!

Oh yeah...*holds arms out as wide as they can go*


It's seriously awesome. AND...Hayden Panettiere! As a cheerleader!! Again!!! Also, I like Milo Ventimiglia a lot more in this show than I ever did in Gilmore Girls. Cause let's face it - in GG, I HATED HIM.

But no, seriously. WATCH IT.

I would also like to direct your attention to the PRETTY icon I made of Hayden as Claire -

I wish like hell that I had a computer capable of making fanvids. There are so many terrible ones out there, and I'd love to have a hand in making something beautiful. And on top of all that, there are so many things I watch that nobody else really does, so it would be nice to be able to add to an already extensive list of shows/movies that have (good) fanvids made about them.

Woo. Mum and I went to the pub last night and won $2000. Excellent.

I'm not sure I like having my cousins baby around so much now. I'm getting too comfortable with the idea of having kids. Yesterday we took my cousin out to do some shopping for her birthday, so I pretty much looked after the baby for most of the day. I originally didn't want much to do with this kid for fear that I'd get used to it and actually want one of my own sooner than I could possibly have one. And now, I'm at the stage where I like holding her and feeding her and putting her to sleep. It's the cutest thing when she snuggles into me. But I don't want to think that. Yesterday, she was starting to cry when my mum was holding her, so I took her and she stopped right away. The girls at the hairdressers were giving me adoring (and somewhat annoying) 'awww, cute daddy' looks. Anyway, just something to think on.

Hmm. I think I've watched Fingersmith maybe 25 times now. I watch it before I go to bed, or if I'm really tired, just watch my favourite parts. God, how I love that film. If this isn't enough to make everyone think I'm insane, then how's this: I have audio clips from the film on my mp3 player that I listen to while I'm trying to fall asleep. The soft sounds of the words and the way Elaine and Sally say them, the cute accents...it just makes me feel...I don't really know what. Anyway, enough for now.

I got bored last night so I decided to do some drawing. It's just a freehand pencil drawing of something that's got my interest at the moment :-P

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

So, yeah. There it is. I can't draw actual pictures for shit, but I have always had a love for drawing words and trying out new fonts and such. And shading, I love shading. Anywho, just wanted to record this somewhere. Later days.

Why didn't anybody tell me about the show "Ghost Squad"?!

Oh, that's right. It's an English show that barely anybody has ever heard of.

Anyway, I'm obsessing over Elaine Cassidy, and the way her gorgeous Irish accent leads me to believe that ordinary words like 'fuck', 'touched' and 'bugger off' were invented just so she could make them sound cute. Also, the sight of her in a police uniform (or the shower) is never a bad thing.

Elaine Cassidy played Maud Lilly in Fingersmith, which I am also obsessed with. I actually had my really homophobic aunt watching Fingersmith with me today and actually getting into it. Watching the lesbian sex scenes with her was a bit of a struggle, but we managed. I think this is about the 10th time I've seen it...probably closer to the 15th.

Anyhow, Ghost Squad looks pretty cool. I've almost finished watching the first episode, but I'm getting so overly excited about it that I needed to take a break. When it comes to cute women with accents, I get giddy. It's insane. I'M insane.

It's awesome.

My sister has some COOL friends. Seriously, these girls dry-hump each other and pretend to make out on camera. Imagine what they'd do if the camera was OFF.

So anyway, as pedantic as I normally am about my hair, I'm trying to grow it a bit. I have to try really hard not to get annoyed and complain about it getting shaggy because it's my choice to try to do this, but I used to get my hair cut once a month so it's hard to get used to it being so scruffy.

Also, I'm probably going to dye it black. It's been black before, but that was when it was short. I'm sort of interested in trying out the whole emo thing - you know...without all the wrist-slitting and tight pants. Plus, my sister has a lot of hot friends who would totally dig me if I was emo. Whatever.

And in true "every terrible movie needs a terrible sequel" fashion, here it is, ladies and gents.

Lesbian Pedophile: The Sequel.

This is the story of a sheltered teenage girl, and the crush that leads her onto a path of self-discovery. Emma is 15 years old, and still her conservative parents hire a sitter to watch her while they are out of town. Harmless fun soon turns to passion as the two get close in ways they never imagined they would.

I just finished watching the 2nd episode of season 2 of South of Nowhere. OK. So, Ashley was a bitch for a great deal of the episode (only to Kyla and Aiden, not to Spencer), but there was a kiss that totally made up for it. Seriously, that kiss should have its own spin-off. It was Teh Cute. So, I'm totally grateful to the people who keep putting the episodes up on the Spencer & Ashley forum so soon after they air. I thought I was going to have to wait another few months until I could download them, but thanks to the wonderful folks over at the forum, there's no need for that.

Aside from that (I know this is like the third post today but whatever) I've decided to recap the icons I have made so far. There are only 20 so I put them all together. 5 of them were actually animated, but I just used the first image in the sequence for the collage.

I have actually made 2 more, a Chad Michael Murray icon for my sister (it says 'The Chad' hehe) and a Mary Kate Olsen one for my brothers fiance, but I don't have copies of those. Wish I had a copy of the Chad one though, for some reason the way I designed it reminds me of an old blue Cadillac. But anyway.

I'm tired and I wanna go to sleep.

What can I say? I got bored :-)

Theirs is a story of forbidden love.

Katherine Hartford (Jodie Foster, Flight Plan) is a 29-year-old Lawyer, whose caseload is almost solely comprised of pedophiles and child molesters. But when she meets Jessica (Kristen Stewart, The Safety of Objects, Catch That Kid), a 15-year-old girl with a passion for law and older women, she is forced to rethink her career and the way she views her clients. As she falls fast and hard for Jess, Katherine must decide which is more important: work or love.

Not coming to any cinemas anywhere near you ever, the heartwarming tale 'Lesbian Pedophile: A Love Story'.

I just finished reading Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe by Fannie Flagg. And I watched the film with my mum for about the 8th time last night.

Like most other novels-turned-film, there were a lot of things that were left out of the movie, and some parts of the story were completely different. Ages, timelines, the way certain events took place, who was there when different things happened. Anyway, I was impressed by the novel nonetheless. It made me feel happy when they were happy, sad when they were sad, and nervous as a schoolboy with a crush during any Idgie/Ruth moments. That ability to invoke emotion is definitely one of the most important things I look for in a book, and this one most certainly delivered.

I'm still pushing through Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince, but next on my reading list just has to be Fingersmith. I watched it again the other night while my mum was playing around on the computer and by about 10 minutes in she had to come watch it with me. She was hooked. So I wouldn't mind reading the novel just to see what it's like. I'm sure I'll love it.

Also, I watched Catch That Kid on TV the other night and I was kind of impressed. It was a cool movie. Jennifer Beals is not entirely what I would call a great actor, but at least she didn't annoy me. And from this experience came Actress Crush #323545654745: Kristen Stewart.

Yes folks, I know she's only 16, but I only have the mentality of a 16 year old so it's ok. Promise. Plus, she plays a lot of tomboyish roles. It's cute. Look at the pretty...

And I made a shiny new icon out of it (and I also made the shiny Serenity one I'm using at this very second)...

The words aren't meant to be legible, but they say 'I got cute to spare - Kristen Stewart'. It isn't a quote from her, just something I thought about her when I was making the icon. 'Cause, hello?!

Anyway, I'm in the icon making mood now so this pedophile boy is off to make him some pretty new ones, featuring Miss Kristen.

Note to self: Next time you shave, try not to miss anything.

Also, I saw Bring It On: All Or Nothing yesterday. Hayden Panettiere...*droooool*

It's really no wonder my first girlfriend was a cheerleader.

I have the Fingersmith DVD on order. All I have seen are clips of it from YouTube, but so far I love, love, LOVE what I see.

The sex scenes are hot too (if not a little short).

This has given a little faith back to me. I was starting to think that there were no good lesbian movies left that I hadn't seen.

I will confess I don't like ordering DVD's though. I'm impatient and when I find something I really want, I like to have it yesterday, and not have to wait a week to get it.

Also - 20 days until I turn 20.

Oh The Line, how I love you...

Jess: Hello? *sighs* Johnny Depp I told you to stop calling me on this phone...
Lisa: Is he STILL harrassing you?
Jess: I know...

AND OMG. They got their name from Heathers. They are SO LESBIAN.

So why did Ryan Cabrera choose one twin over the other?

Lisa: I'm just more charming, really.

I NEED to find a way to order the Online Only Special Edition Autographed CD with Behind The Scenes DVD, 2 bonus tracks, a poster, and an Archie comic featuring the girls. Mum? Dad? Credit card? What's the American exchange rate like? JOHN. WESTON. PAMELA. GET IT FOR ME. Or don't.

I hate Ryan Cabrera. He gets to kiss Lisa over and over in his video. GRR.

Before anything else, I'd like to take a moment to express my utter amazement at HOW FUCKING STUPID THE CROWD CAN GET AT A CONCERT. There was pushing and shoving, it was a complete fucking sauna, people were packing in so tightly that many others couldn't breathe, and one girl even passed out from the heat. Seriously, 3 security guards had to pull her out of the pit. Hell, 2 songs from the end, I had to go get water to stop MYSELF from passing out, it was really that hot. The girls were good about it though, they told people to spread out, they were like "It's getting kinda warm up here...you guys must be so hot!". And after 2 fucking rad punk rock support acts, it smelled REALLY BAD. There was this gay guy in front of us who was all sweaty and disgusting and totally fangirling the second support group, Repeat Offender. Granted, they were good, but this guy was sweating like I've never seen anyone sweat before. Gross.

This is going to be huge (I'm commenting on EVERY SONG), with pics and all, so it's going under a cut. I suppose it could be summed up as OMGTHEVERONICASROCKIWANTTHEMTOHAVEMYLITTLEGAYBABIES. But please, have a read of my 'review' (read: masses of fanboyish comments and compliments all pointing to the Veronicas being completely and utterly nothing but awesome).

I got a message from my boss on my phone when I woke up. He wants me to work Saturday, but I'm already working Sunday and my parents are coming down for the weekend. I feel bad saying no, and I REALLY need the money, but I'd prefer to hang out with my parents. I never thought I'd say that.

In other news, Haydn and I just watched Band Candy and Once More With Feeling. I think we'll watch Tabula Rasa next That episode always makes me sad. I can't stand to see Tara leave. Then I want to watch the whole season of South of Nowhere again. It's official. I'm obsessed. I must add it to my list of favourites. Buffy. Firefly. Sports Night. And now South of Nowhere.

It's too annoying to think about the fact that I have to wait until October at the earliest for Season 2. Then again, we don't get the show here so I have to wait until somebody puts it on the internet. So it'll probably be the end of the year before I get to see it. THAT SUCKS BALLS.

I believe, without doubt, that it is possible to fall in love with a character, or characters, from a television show. It is not possible, however, to fall in love with an ACTOR OR ACTRESS by watching them perform in a TV series.

More random thoughts on this... )

Anyway, it's like almost 4am, and I can barely read what's on my computer screen so I figure I should sleep. Besides, I'm not supposed to stay up late. Australians are pussies.

Did I even get anywhere with what I was saying? It probably didn't even make sense. WHATEVER.

With GoF bought, Hermione thoroughly laughed, sighed, giggled and cried over, and work almost over for the week, the only thing left to comment on is...

OH YES. This morning my mother bought and paid for my tickets TO THE VERONICAS. I'm the happiest man ALIVE.

I'm not sure what the concert setup is (seating, standing room only, a mix of both), but WHO CARES?! I get to see two of the most amazingly gorgeous women in the history of anything EVER. LIVE. IN CONCERT. And, unlike the anxiety I felt when I was going to see Avril as to whether or not she would be good live, I just feel confident and happy about this one because every live Veronicas track I have heard is PERFECT.

So, umm...ok. I'm done delivering all my exposition THE SAME WAY.

*does the snoopy dance*

I just completed my very first entire run-through of every Buffy episode ever made.

I've now seen every episode, and it's actually made me really sad. Well, sad in a way. I don't really know what to feel. There are never going to be any new episodes. Anya is gone (which I knew was going to happen but it's so much more real, and hits you so much more when you know every piece of backstory there is to know). We'll never get to see Willow and Kennedy's home-made pornos (which is the one thing that kills me more than all else). Faith had sex with not just a MAN (she was MEANT to be a dyke), but a school PRINCIPAL, and an ugly one at that. Buffy and Faith will never be together, except in my dreams - and in the fanfiction of half the worlds population.

I have mixed feelings about the fact that it's really over. I know most other people went through this stage a few years ago, but this is new to me. It'll take time to deal with.
