It's been awhile since my last post... not much to talk about.

I have a new obsession with "urban vinyl" as it is being called these days...collecting kidrobots, qeesters, etc. Found a bunch up at Criminal Records last weekend. Most of them I've been getting from online.

Got the Blaqk Audio cd....love it. Totally reminds me of a yummy fusion between Clan of Xymox (think "Twist of Shadows") and Book of Love, all with the strangely different vocal range of Davey Havok. Almost decided to go to the concert coming up, but changed my mind at the last minute...you know me.

Been re-vising my resume this past week. I officially have turned in copies to both Delta and DHR. Hopefully I will hear from someone soon.

Happy October everyone! I have been busy pre-decorating the yard for all hallow's eve.

Lately, I've been buried in books. Just finished Running with Scissors (I can't believe they're making a movie), Zombie Nation (really hard to get in to), and finishing up Anansi Boys.

I went to see Texas Chainsaw Beginnings with my dad this past Sunday. I am officially desensitized to those movies. I didn't squirm or jump once...in fact, i kept wishing for something a little more disturbing. It was good to see Tobe Hooper in the production credits though. Showtime's Master's of Horror kicks off next week with his new short film. The previews they showed were almost worth the wait: Daron Aranofsky's "The Fountain" and Guillermo del Toro's "Pan's Labyrinth" are going to keep me in the theater all December.

This holiday's favorite movies for me are Black Sunday and My Bloody Valentine. If you can find either of them, I strongly urge you to watch them before the end of the month. Stay away from the over-hyped crap that's coming out, like SAW 3.

A great day for new things....

Today I tried two new fruits for the very first time:

First, was the white peach for breakfast. It reminded me a lot of the sweetest peach...but then with a touch of honey. Reminds me why I love white peach tea.

Then, after my run....was the dragonfruit. I have to say that it was amazing to look at...but it tasted like crap. It really didn't have much of a taste at all except for all the seeds that reminded me of poopyseeds. So, I think I'll stick to the flavored gum on that one.

In other news...I have discovered the wonderful world of shamisen music (the 3 stringed guitar-like instrument played by most renditions of geisha). I found a great cd of Noh music that features a lot of solo performances with the shamisen.

I am reading The Traveler by John Twelve Hawks (what an original name)...I started last Sunday when we visited my aunt at the hospice. It's really quite good.

"Just another wet dream.."

I've been completely and utterly obsessed by this tv show, Hex, on BBC America. The season finale was quite disappointing, and I was devastated to find out that only one more season remains. Besides, the main character is suddenly out of the picture. BTW, I love Thelma...the hipster lesbian ghost.

I've also been busy listening the new HYDE cd, "Faith", which is surprisingly really good...considering that I wasn't too terribly fond of l'arc~en~ciel. It confuses me a bit that the lyrics are a word salad of both the Japanese and English languages, but it sounds good.

Oh, yeah, and I couldn't possibly forget the Jim Henson/Tokyopop release of Return to Labyrinth. I haven't finished reading it yet; however, the inside art is not quite the same as the amazing cover art.

Another review...

Jul. 11th, 2006 | 08:27 pm

Clan of Xymox has proved--yet again-- that they are my alltime favorite band! After searching treacherously through the Border's cd racks, I found the one and only-albeit misplaced-copy of their new album. It recalls their 4AD era...a bit less industrial, and a bit more like their original "sound". Hey, there is even another chick song. A trend I've noticed is song titles named after females: Michelle, then Louise, and now Cynara.

Just got back in from a monstrous jogging experience....yep, I've been doing that consistently almost every night since school let out.  I have to say that I've noticed some changes...both physically, mentally, and health-wise. 

Just in case you were wondering, I've been spending my entire summer working full-time.  I need to save up enough money to pay for grad school.  The few days off that I have, I've been spending with my immediate family and helping around the house.  I can say that our backyard officially looks like a Japanese garden by now. 

I blame X3 for my new addiction to comic books:  I am currently up to date on Joss Whedon's Astonishing Xmen series (gasp!) and am trying to catch up on this whole House of M thing.  I have also discovered that John Russo--original author of Night of the Living Dead, and the early Return of the Living Dead seris (1 and 2)-- has made up to his fans by writing a all-new comic series Escape of the Living Dead.  I'm only on issue 1, but am glad that it doesn't entirely suck.  For those of you out of the "know", SciFi Pictures released a Return of the Living Dead 4 and 5 late last year...both of which sucked seriously.  One of them even involved kids taking drugs a la zombie canister fluid.  I guess you just have to be a fan to know what I'm talking about.  lol.

I've blanked out on my music scene for a bit.  Currently, I'm interested in everything French.  I just bought a copy of Galleon's "so i begin", which is a mix of techno and dance.  And, I've just ordered a much anticipated Serge Gainsbourg singles album...it even includes the one with Brigitte Bardot.  (yay!)

enjoy the hot weather......

Went to Arbor Place Mall today...was there for at least 3 hours.  I picked up both the American release of Dir En Grey, and the new AFI....haven't listened to them yet.

I am enjoying my first summer without it being sandwiched by two equally dreadful school sessions.  Spending a lot of time tending the gardens.  Yes, plural, if you can count the whole yard as one.  

Xmen 3 was very interestingly good.  I'd never gotten as far as "The Cure" saga in my previous comic readings, so I inadvertenly picked up a few comics this past weekend at Dave's Comics in Fayetteville.  I also happened upon a comic called ZOMBIE, which I refused to not pick up.  Without being too much of a critic (since there was only one zombie--a lil' girl at that- in issue 1), I have to say that I have never seen or read a zombie comic book in my entire zombie-obsessed life.  I even discoved that their is a comic called Emo Boy.... i did not buy that one.

Dir en Grey has an American album?!  Apparenlty, Whispers of Death, came out sometime in March on some unknown record label.  Reading a track listing, I notice that The Final is one of the first singles.  ((I've had a copy of that song since last year)).

In other jNews, I finally saw a copy of Kiero (Pulse), which Wes Craven is "stamping" his name on as a American release sometime before we all die.  I think the trailors borrowed more from the Japanese version...I just hope it isn't as noticable as a Power Rangers episode.  I also don't think the plot makes much sense without an understanding of the culture....but I also said that about The Grudge.  lol.

I've been looking into grad school these past weeks. I'm still not sure when, where, or what for yet. I just know that I must...one day, within a year or so. I don't understand why most art history programs require a portfolio. Maybe I should look into something else, but in the same context. If there's anything I know, it's art.

I finished DaVinci code. Really good, I wonder how much of that is true. I'm even thinking about picking up a copy of the Gnostic gospels, just to see what they're all about. That's the first time I'd ever heard of them. Figures.

I'm addicted to BBC America. I watched 3 hours of Friends and Crocodiles last night. It was addicting, almost like Footballers Wives. That one is just funny....that woman is orange!

They Cherry Blossom's are in bloom!!!! Makes me wish I were in Japan. I've been photographing them already. Maybe one day I'll get around to doing something with all of them.

Ok, so Melonball (my subject), is my new favorite Midori beverage. It actually makes orange juice tolerable. Enjoy.

yeah, yeah, yeah....like anyone reads this anyway...

The internship is going well...my portfolio is expanding. Already published four stories in Campus Review. Getting many more interviews under my belt. AP style sucks. and that's that.

It's kinda interesting not being around anyone this semester. Campus really is quite boring, come to think of it. I am reading two books at once: Orlando and the DaVinci Code. It's going to be a race to see which one I finish first.

I am job-hunting.

I haven't seen any new movies since HOSTEL, and I'm blaming it on Dr. Clark for his inherent pessimism about the movie business. But, I have decided that I want to postpone my big dream trip to Europe for a while--since i know I'll never come back--and want to go to California instead. I really just want to see what it's like. And I've actually felt this way for a while now. So, it's not just some wild hair!

Today was interesting,

Went to Kroger and finally found some couscous...can't wait to try it! I'm totally sheltered from foreign foods.

Watched Cry_Wolf. Yeah. Movies that are too dark to see and too quiet to hear...are NOT scary!!! It was also so predictable that it hurt to actually sit throught the ending. Also rented Mysterious Skin.

And, most significantly, started a bonfire with all my notes/papers/handouts/etc. from the last two years as CSU. Well, actually the bonfire was for the treelimbs that had fallen last week, but all that paper finally got it goin. I still cannot believe that I only have two more classes to go.
