roguem: (Serenity - Mal Smile Time)

About a year ago, back in London my teacher was having a class on New Zealand horror movies, and he presented us with a poster for this film, and I knew at once I had to see it.

There are 40 million sheep in New Zealand and only 4 million inhabitants. After a genetic experiment goes wrong, New Zealand's sheep start turning nasty, and it's the humans who begin bleating.

Well, it's finally on it's way!

roguem: (X-Men - Wolverine claws What now)

Weird evening, after my last post about finding the LP, I got ready for the cinema. Wanted to wash my hair as I was working tomorrow, and the movie started late. 
Anyway, when I've finished I get a call from Odd (my boss) saying I don't have to come in tomorrow, and if I could come to his offices on Saturday to help out with some stuff, getting it cleared up a bit. I said yes. It's just a bit of tidying, should be okay. Anyway he said he was getting an office ready for the finance guy, one for himself, and get this; one maybe for me! All I've been expecting was a chair, maybe my own desk, not my own office. Still very cool, and shows that things are going forward with the movie. Yay.
Then comes the not so great, I have an hour left before leaving for the cinema, and my dad gets a call. When he's done he asks us; 'How do you feel about moving to the new flat on the 10th of December?' I'm not very happy about it... We were supposed to move in on January 10th. My mom gets all excited, and basically says 'Yes!' before my brain has even processed the information. I say okay, but also that I'm not happy about it, and because I'm a fucking weakling I start crying. I have no idea why I started crying, really. My dad hugs me and my mom worries a bit. I just say it's silly, and my dad says that it's not silly to have feelings. I mean, I was looking forward to a final christmas here, but that's not reason to start crying, hate it when I get like this. Was kind of suprised about how worried they got at my little outburst to be honest. Not important though.
They know I'm not thrilled about the move in general, and now they know that I'm really not happy about having the actual date moved up as well. I've told them that I'm not to crazy about moving, but that I do understand why they're doing this. I'm not blaming them, but I can't help the way I feel either. I've gotten the impression that my mom feels guilty about it, she's trying to buy me off by promising me one of those expensive video iPod thinges... not an iPod, but one of those things that's like an iPod. Not gonna lie, I really want one, but wouldn't feel right like this. 
Bah, hate feeling like this... must focus on the positive. At least this will mean a nice quiet christmas.

Sorry guys, you must be so sick of my ramblings about this by now. So now on to happier things again:

I went to the cinema with isil80. We saw 'Scoop'. Now, normally I would never pay to watch a Woody Allen, especially one he stars in, as the guy annoyes the living shit out of me. And I've never been a big fan of  Scarlett Johansson either for some reason. But this was also a film starring Hugh Jackman, so I just had to give it the benefit of the doubt. 
It's not a great film, but I enjoyed it very much. I laughed, I was stressed, I was hooked on Hugh's accent. Must say I was jealous of Scarlett on more than one occation, but lets not go there. 

I read somewhere that it was a letdown for Woody fans, which probably explains why I enjoyed it. I thought it was funny and chariming, everybody did a good job and my annoyance at Woody's fidgeting was rather low. Hugh seemed so incredibly at ease with his character that I could almost believe that's how he is in everyday life. It was kind of hypnotic to watch. (for lack of a better word). All in all I found it very enjoyable, and it will end up in my DVD collection at some point, that much I can guarantee.

Think die hard "Deadwood"  fans would have enjoyed it as well, as Ian McShane had one of the main parts as well. It was also very nice to see Anthony Head again, even though it was only at a very short scene at the end of the film.

Also it looked to have been mainly shot in the area I lived when I was in London. Gotta admit it was distracting at times, but also very fun to see some of my old scenery again. There was actually a scene in the film at the only pub in Holland Park that I could stand; The Mitre, very low on smoke. That bit made me squee. They were mainly in the Holland Park and surrounding areas for the scenes in the city.


That's it for now. Might have to think about getting some sleep soon. 
Tomorrow will be good:
Some of my online auctions are closing, and so far a few of them have fetched well over the asking price, which makes me very happy.
I have the day off, and can get some stuff done.
And most importantly: IT's "Supernatural" day! Yay. :D

roguem: (Serenity - Mal song)
Taken from Whedonesque:

Hi boys and odd, smooth, compellingly bumpy non-boys. I'm in Liverpool, on Alexis' lap... sorry, laptop, checking in and seeing all sorts of nonsense about a sequel to something. I did run into someone at Forbidden Planet, and he said something about that I ought to make more things, possibly art things, and I agreed. He didn't know the fellow I was with was Brian Hitch but it was 'cause I'm so, yeah, awesome. Yes, Warren and Natalie and Brian and I had dinner, after nattering on for SFX at the hotel (I like that mag) and it was blazingly fun. They're all three multitalented, urbane, and surprisingly sweet. I'm none of those things but I came the farthest so they had to be nice. BUT...

There's no sequel, no secret project regarding Serenity or somesuch and I'm not even sure how anyone thought there was talk there. I've seen Nathan and Tim (and Summer and Alan) recently because they're my friends because I'm so, yeah, awesome. So let's put that to bed and smother it with a pillow.

Fun fact: Didn't read the thread, but as for James playing Shinzon: that's the reason he left for darkest Africa at the end of season six. We were giving him the time off to do the film. When it didn't happen, the course was already set. But he got a nifty soul and that worked out okay.

Oh, and I heard Marvel pushed back X-Men 18? I've delivered 19, and Johnny's working steadily, so blame the marketplace. In fact, overturn the marketplace, the way Jesus did when he was cranky about that thing that time.

Rolling in Kittens, -j.
 

Why are the cool people in London, at Forbidden Planet when I'm not there? Come on! :p
As for the news about a Serenity sequel, I'm not that suprised really, Joss has focused his attention to other projects, and I'm sure we'll see more great things from him in the future. I'm not saying I'm not dissapointed, I would have loved to see more from that universe, but asking Joss to top that movie... that's a pretty big demand.

roguem: (Supernatural - Spoilers)

First, I have a feeling they didn't show up on my flist properly, and also it's a chance for the newbies to check it out:
Supernatural 121: Salvation - Piccie Review
Supernatural 122: Devil's Trap - Review with pictures
Dial uppers be warned.

When my parents started this whole thing about wanting to move to a smaller apartement I figured they would take their time, and maybe I'd have a chance to start looking for one of my own before we actually had to leave the house. Seems I was way to optimistic. I've been honest with my parents, said I'm not happy with the situation, but I understand that they want something smaller. 
They put in on a bid on a place, it was a very nice flat, but they got outbid and left it alone. They've contacted the realtor so he can get started on the process of selling the house. As much as I love my parents, even in this house I sometimes feel that we're living to close, a little apartment won't help matters. It's also, that I've been moving back and forth from London for the last 3 years, I was finally looking forward to some stability, not having to think of moving for another year. And I'm uprooted again. I'm so tired of packing up my life and moving around. 
I feel like I can't fully relax here anymore, because I keep waiting to hear my parents tell me it's time to start packing again.
Just feeling a bit hopeless right now, only time will tell.

On the upside. I sent an application via post to Nordisk Film about a moth ago. So yesterday I checked the e-mail I set up for work purposes, and there was a mail from them asking me to send my CV via e-mail, so I would be easier to distribute in between the departments. This got my hopes up a little bit, hopefully there might be something for me there. It's in Oslo though, so I'd have to move, but to be honest since that would be moving to my own place I'd be happy. The more I think about it Oslo isn't a bad place to end up, I really didn't want to initially as I'm not to fond of Oslo, but I have friends there, and it's much easier to come home here to visit my family and friends than any of the other places. Cross your fingers for me?

[personal profile] beluga stopped by here yesterday, was very nice. We sat talking for a while, ended up watching an episode of 'Psych', followed by 'Supernatural: Faith', and the first two episodes of season 3 of 'House M.D.'.
On a side note: I've discovere that 'Psych' used a location that's been used in 'Supernatural'. I can provide photographic evidence if you wish.

Okay, and now for a little project I'm working on. Pimping norwegian artists. Behind the cut are three music videos from YouTube, featuring different Norwegian artists. Have a listen and look and see what you think. We all like finding new music don't we?

In here )

I'll keep posting vids like this every once in a while, have collected quite a few. Not all bands I like, but that doesn't mean you guys won't like 'em. Hope you find something that tickles your fancy.

Sorry about my blow up earlier, it was in no way directed at you guys. You've all been good with keeping things under wraps, and if I've seen any spoilers in your LJs it's not your fault. 
My rant was directed at the comms, and people posting there without real warnings, which resulted in me knowing things I didn't want to know. Seriously... I don't even want to know what color socks they'll be weaing in an episode until I see it myself.

Had a weird day. Couldn't sleep all night, kept having dreams where I was in serious pain, so I kept waking up because of it, this happened all night. And was very annoying. I'm talking serious pain her, like my body had been contorted in some way it just couldn't handle.
When I woke up I was actually naseous because of the pain from my dreams, how weird is that?
Later in the day, while at work, my back started aching, for no reason really. It's still bugging me. I have no idea why it should be aching as I haven't really done anything that would affect my back. My only conclusion is that I must have slept in a really weir position or something when I actually did sleep, and that's why all this happened.

It's my dad's birthday today. :D *throws confetti*
Woke up this morning and mom and I made breakfast for him. He was very happy about the presents, he got 4 shirts, 1 sweater, 2 ties and 500zl (polish currency) that he can use in Poland. 
We celebrated by going to a chinese restaurant for dinner. People have been calling him all day.
Think he's happy about the day, now he's enjoying himself watching a football (soccer) game on TV.
He's going to celebrate on Saturday, if I'm not mistaken.

Oh, btw, to my Norwegian friends. Have you seen the new commercial for IFA? The singing cop? I know that guy, well... I knew him. He used to live at the house in London. He was there during my second year. And that girl on the bike in the 'turn around' youghurt commercial lived there my first two years. 
Funny to see people I've known or know on TV.

Made it back safely. Only had 24kg luggage, was 4 kg over, but didn't have to pay anything. Very nice. Still have stuff in London, but we'll collect that in July.
I miss the people over there I have to admit.
Have hung out with [livejournal.com profile] beluga and [livejournal.com profile] isil80, was wonderful to see them again. We just relaxed, chatted, watched TV and had a nice evening.
Am tired now, must sleep, will try to get back on track here in LJ-land tomorrow.

Have a lot of pictures I've been wanting to post. Mostly of the areas where I live in Norway, London and even Poland. These pictures have been taken from mid january up until now, so there are quite a few. So if you want to know a little more about where I live, follow the cuts. :D
