It's been a crazy-busy week.
I haven't had the time or energy to check in.
Probably be gone for a day or two more.
Updates  and Supernatural reviews are on the way.

I've been crazy busy, that's why I haven't been posting much.
I've managed to get through my flist somehow, don't always comment, but I read.
Lots to do at work, [livejournal.com profile] beluga was here this weekend, visited [livejournal.com profile] isil80.
Will try to write a real update about everything and write reviews as soon as possible.

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

Looks like autum is finally getting its hold over here. We still have warm days, but it's also getting colder. It's nice, I like it. I'm kind of looking forward to winter, snow and such. I know that'll bring me closer to the move, but part of me is just looking forward to get that over with. 

According to the question comments in my last post, only 11 people on my flist actually sees my posts... or the rest just doesn't care. I mean, out of about 60 people that's not to good. Ah, well. Not much I can do about it really.

Not much has happened since my last post, had the day off on Monday which was nice. Dropped some boxes off at isil80's place. She's storing some stuff for me. For which I am very thankful. Rest of the day I tried going through more stuff. So far I've managed to throw away two rather big boxes of old magazines, and one with broken old toys and basic junk. Think I'm off to a godd start. I've gotten some more bids on  my online auction, which means I'll at least be able to pay off the fees for the auctions.
Isn't it typical though, that now that I really have no money I find clothes I'd love to buy, DVDs I've been wanting on sales and such. The money I earn on the auction though is going straight into my account though. It's not a lot so far, so will have to spend it wisely, besides christmas is approaching so need the cash to buy presents. :)

Was at work yesterday and today. The class learned about acting, new teacher. He was kind of cute, but I think he knew it...
Anyway they learned about acting, was fun to see them trying to work with the assignments he gave them. These are all kids that have choosen a major that will take them behind the camera, and none of them were really that comfortable in front of it. I went through the same thing when we had acting at my school. I think it's good that they did it though, it goes a long way to understand how things work from the actor's point of view too, and I think it'll make them better at being directors. 
I got to film them as they performed. Oh, how I've missed working with a camera! I had no idea till I was back doing it. The camera's they use are very different from what I'm used to, but got the hang of it. I really want to make something, a short thing... I really should get the footage I already have edited and such before I start something new though.

I was discussing movies with two of the male students today; Even and Bård. Somehow we got on to sci-fi movies, and suddenly Even says that 'Serenity' is the worst sci-fi movie he's ever seen. I think I startled him when I said; 'No!' Heh, seriously, how can you hate that movie? I get that not everybody loves it, but hate!?!? Bård seemed to have liked it though. I didn't discuss it much further. Usually I defend my fave movies and such, but he's techniqally my student so I didn't really feel my fangirlie mode had anything to do in that classroom.

After work I've usually been pretty beat. I have rather short days, but still get rather tired. Guess I just have to get back into the rythm of it. As it is now I'm tired till like 18:00 and then I finally feel awake. So when It's time to go to bed I'm wide awake. Ah, well. Like I said, just have to get into the new rythm of things again.

Looks like I might have to work on Friday. :(
Means I won't be able to start looking for the new SPN ep till 14:30. Ah well, I'll still get it on friday, so I shouldn't complain. We'll see though, depends on what they're supposed to be doing that day.

I'm getting the impression that all my posts aren't showing up on my flist again. So figured I'd provide links to some of my previous posts:
Of vampires and zombies   [21 Oct 2006|11:16am]   
Supernatural - 204   [21 Oct 2006|12:42am]  
Just hope this post shows up on your flists. Hmm, do me a favour? If you can see this, comment, even if there's nothing else of interest in this post, just tell me if you can see it.

I stumbeled over this meta about Dean's shirt in the last episode (204). It's pretty convincing, but I'm still not quite sure, help convince me. 

[profile] starlit_woods made me very happy today. He linked me to this vid:
[Error: unknown template 'video']It's Take That's new song. NEW! I had no idea this would make me so happy, but seriously, I'm bouncy after this. I guess that 13 year old fan girl in me is still alive and kicking. Thank you so much again [profile] starlit_woods!!!


It's been a quiet week really. Not much to do at work, just watching the groups movies and giving them feedback. Was interesting to see the process from this end. They're still pretty new to it all, and I could see where they had been having trouble, but hopefully they've taken something away from this project and can therefore make the next one better.
They're off to Bergen this weekend, showing one of the films. Hope it turns out good for them,

I've been off since Thursday, and won't have to be back at work until Tuesday, which is nice. 
Most of Thursday I went through my old stuff that was stored in the garage. A lot of memories crammed into a few boxes. Have thrown away quite a bit of stuff. I saved a lot of magazines the last time we moved, threw them away this time. Looked through a couple, made an amusing discovery. I kept finding pictures and posters of this young guy and thought he looked rather familiar, found a poster with his name; Jesse Spencer, didn't quite connect the dots, and then it hit me. Had to laugh, he looked so young and goofy, the mags were from 97-99, so he was in his late teens in the pictures I found. I saved some of them, for now, will have to see if they survive the move.
In the afteroon I went for a visit to [personal profile] beluga. He bf had left for a long vacation on monday, so wanted to cheer her up. We just sat talking and taking it easy, was very nice. She showed me the first three episodes of "Dexter". I liked it, din't think I would when I first heard about the show, but the characters are well done, and Dexter himself is absurdly likeable. It's mordbi and funn, a nice twist.

Friday was quiet, I got a hold of "Supernatural - 204". Chatted a little with [profile] isil80. Started making stuff ready for my online auction, am getting rid of som stuff I don't need. 
[personal profile] beluga came by, we watched "Supernatural", twice. I would have watched again, I loved that episode. We talked a bit and had fun, was a nice afternoon. She had to leave early as she was doggie sitting. In the evening I took it easy and went through some more stuff to either sell or throw away.

Saturday I returned to the garage, think I'm done with the major work in there for now. Just have to get stared on my room now, pack what I won't be needing until January, maybe find some more stuff to sell, and try to throw away some things as well.
We discussed a little bit how to best utilize the space in the new flat, my parents have to get rid of a lot of furniture, luckily I get to keep most of mine. The only think I have to leave behind is my desk, and I'm pretty happy about that as it's practically falling apart. In the new flat I'll be getting a fold out couch and a new desk, which I'm very pleased about as it's needed. Will maybe get a new chair to, depends on how things look when we've moved in. No rush though. I have everything I need, and if I start payed employment in January I won't be home much, ergo, won't need those things straight away, and will also be able to help pay for it when we get it.
I ended up putting up a few of my things for slae at my online auction yesterday before crashing in fromt of the computer to check out what kind of show "The Class" is. Was only going to watch one, but ended up watching the first three. I am amused. It's a very simple premise, but I am enjoying it. Think I needed a comedy series that I haven't seen a million times before. 

Today I've been taking it easy, adding some things to my online auction, tidying up a little, and rummaging through the storage space to see what of my stuff had ended up there. Might be a few more choice items that ends up being sold. We'll see. Would be nice to actually get some money for some of it. Money that would be my own, that I'd earned. Heh, anyways, been helping a little around the house as well. Now I'm ready to call it quits for today, unless I get inspired to go crawling in the storage space again looking for stuff. 

Hope everybody had a nice weekend!

Have had a quiet week really. Been surfing the net, getting caught up on some of my shows and just trying to get some stuff done. 

Looks like I'm off to Oslo in November, really looking forward to it. Janki is looking into getting me tickets for 'Hair'. I hope I get to see it, would be so awesome to see him perform. I've never been a big musical fan, but this is different. If it doesn't work out I figure I'll try to contact Nina and we'll hang out or something.

So I finally got to see the season opener of "Prison Break". It was good, but I was also kind of dissapointed. I've always kind of seen this series as holding on to realism as well as they could. I mean if you remove all the close shaves and stuff that's just in there to be dramatic one can to some degree buy into it all. They do manage to hold the suspense all the way through, which is rare, and very well done.
I still like the show, and will keep watching. It is one of the most well written with regards to the close shaves and drama, and keeping the exitement level high. I'll keep watching and hoping that it'll redeem these issues in some way. New episode tonight, so we'll see what happens.

Not much else happening really. Am kind of looking forward to going back to work. I've applied at a job at the airport, and am looking in to some other things that could hold me over until I get an actual movie/TV gig.

We're starting to pack some stuff. Looking for boxes and stuff. I'll have to go through all my stuff and see what I want to keep and if there's anything I can throw away. I hate this part.
My dad has been going through a lot of his stuff and has started selling a bunch of stuff online. Sad really, a lot of what he's selling has been in our family for a long time. It's not of any use anymore, so I get why he's selling it, but it's still kind of sad.

If you've been paying attention you'll have seen that I've been posting a lot of fan-art, mainly by request. So I'm keeping this open, if you have any requests, just ask. I'll make banners, headers, icons, wallpapers, soundbites, and caps. No problem.

Not much else happening really. Am kind of looking forward to going back to work. I've applied at a job at the airport, and am looking in to some other things that could hold me over until I get an actual movie/TV gig.

We're starting to pack some stuff. Looking for boxes and stuff. I'll have to go through all my stuff and see what I want to keep and if there's anything I can throw away. I hate this part.
My dad has been going through a lot of his stuff and has started selling a bunch of stuff online. Sad really, a lot of what he's selling has been in our family for a long time. It's not of any use anymore, so I get why he's selling it, but it's still kind of sad.

If you've been paying attention you'll have seen that I've been posting a lot of fan-art, mainly by request. So I'm keeping this open, if you have any requests, just ask. I'll make banners, headers, icons, wallpapers, soundbites, and caps. No problem.

Had a good weekend. 
It's so nice to have my aunt here for a visit, sadly she'll be leaving on Wednesday. She might be coming back in december to celebrate christmas with us. I hope so, it would be a very nice way to spend our last christmas in this house. 

My parents have set our time to move out to no later than february 2007, so we have to find a place by then. We'll be showing the house to potential buyers sometime Wednesday afternoon. Not exactly looking forward to it, but we'll most likely not be here, so I don't have to watch.

On Saturday we looked at an apartment. It was very nice, even I have to admit that. I would get a similar setup to what I have now, so I really can't complain in any way. The only negative thing about it is that it's a way out of the city and it won't be that easy for [personal profile] beluga and [profile] isil80 just to pop by. Well, figure something out though. No reason to worry now anyway, if we want the place we'll have to wait a while. We kind of got a viewing before it's out on the market, so we can't do anything until they've had an official showing. It is a great apartment though.

Yesterday I went to the cinema with [profile] isil80, needed a break from some pre-editing work I was doing. We wathed 'The Devil Wears Prada'. It was an okay film, nothing spectacular. Slow paced, which isn't really a problem if you have a strong story, sadly it wasn't. I think this should have either focused more on the comedy aspect of it, or tried to get more serious and given a better picture of the people involved. It kind of lies somewhere in the middle and never fully achieves what it could have. That said it was a nice film, and I was very happy to be back at the cinema. Fun to get out for a little bit.

Have gotten some time off from work, the students will be out shooting their films so there's nothing for me to do.

I haven't got much more to tell, so I'll continue my norwegian artist pimping, some rock this time.

roguem: (Supernatural - Spoilers)
Am frantically trying to download the season opener of "Supernatural". Got to 83% on one download before it crapped out on me, so have started a new one, it's on 5% so far. This hectic downloading stuff can be seriously stressful. I refuse to go through my flist until I've seen it, which sould hopefully be sometime today.

Okay, lets rewind to Wednesday afternoon. We were looking at a flat on the othe side of the city. It was gorgeous, it was perfect for us, and I could actually imagine living there for a while. Sadly we lost the bidding, well, we didn't even get to start bidding before our maximum was reached. But it's made us hopeful that we will find something that everybody can be happy with.

When we got back home we were pleasently suprised by a phone call from my Aunt Teresa, who lives in Germany, saying that she would be coming for a visit the next day. She'd booked the flight and would be staying for a little under a week. I was very happy, haven't seen her since Graduation, and that was such a short gathering, so I was glad that she'd be coming.

Anyway, Thursday I spent some time at work helping out, and then my parents picked me up on their way to the airport. The plane arrived early. Was so lovely to see her again, whe was very happy to be coming too. We all piled into the car and drove back home. My aunt got all her stuff in order. She'd brought some sweets for me, jummy. Sat downstairs with them talking for a while. They went to a showing, I opted to stay home as nobody was overly enthusiastic about that flat and I had stuff to do.

In the evening we all just took it easy, sat watching telly and talking a bit. I started playing with my aunt's phone, as I can never stay away from new toys. My mom's been nagging me that I should get a new cell, so I just wanted to check out what my Aunt's Motorola had to offer. I'm really a Nokia person to be honest, but figured I had to see what the others are offering. Ended up playing with all the functions on her phone for a while. Kind of in an offhand remark I told my mom that I wanted one of those phones for christmas. As it is a phone and MP3 player, awesom. My aunt understood this and said I could have her phone. I had no idea what to say... I mean I did want it, but I couldn't just take her phone. I said it was too much, but bothe her and my mom said that my aunt didn't need half of the functions on that phone, and she could have one of ours. So now I have a new Motorola phone. Which rocks. I spent rest of the evening sorting out the phonebooks in the mobiles that had been exchanged. My aunt will have to send me the applications to the phone when she gats back to Germany, so then I'll be loading it up with some choice tunes. I still think it was way to generous, however we do trade a lot of stuff within the family, so it's not unusual.

I finished my "Supernatural" marathon this morning. Now I'm just waiting for the episode I'm downloading to finish and for [personal profile] beluga to get here, so I can finally watch the season opener. 43% so far, just hope this one works.

Wanna hit the cinema this weekend. 'Little Miss Sunshine' actually made it to the bigscreen over here. [profile] isil80[personal profile] beluga? Wanna join me?

Okay, now for part 3 of my Norwegian artist pimping, you can find part 1 & 2 in my previous posts.

Thank you all for your kind words to my last entry. I have an awesome flist. *Hugs you all*

Am having a little 'Supernatural' marathon up until the season 2 premiere. Just finished 'Faith', yeah, I know I just saw it, but I love that episode. Also, am working on a little project and I need to watch all the episodes to do it.
3 DAYS TO GO!!! *Hyper bouncing*

Got an answer on one of my job applications last week. It's funny really. Turned out I'd found this guy's website that he set up as a school project, and sent an application. Lol. He sent me a letter explaining the misup, also writing that he's working at the local TV-channel and will keep his eyes open if any work opens up for me.
Kind of a crazy misunderstanding, but I was very grateful that he spent the time and money to send me a letter explaining, and asking me to e-mail if I wanted him to keep his eyes open for a job for me where he's woking. I've e-mailed him back, thanking him, and that it would be great if he kept an eye open for me.

Not much else happening, looks to be a quiet week at work. 
I need new icons, have been collecting a bit.
'Boston Legal' cracks me up.
