I'm making actual progress on the music writing front. YEY ME! Planning on putting out a 5 song demo by June 15.

In other news.

Have discovered new benefit to being tiny. Cheap underwearz. Gap girls' XXL panties fall about midway between women's S and women's XS, making them exactly my size. And they beat even the clearance prices of their adult counterparts. And occasionally they come in 7 packs with the days of the week on them—Sheldon Cooper would approve.

Most of my other cost saving measures are in the kitchen. This week: homemade nut milks. The concept is simple. Put nuts in a blender. Add water. Blend. Strain. For particularly hard nuts, soak overnight. Yesterday I tried this with some black sesame seeds I'd bought in bulk. The high oil content made for a very rich and creamy end product. Bonus—straining left behind a nice seed paste I can use to make tahini. I have a butt-load of uneaten peanuts, so I'm trying that next.

FYI: using raw chocolate powder instead of Dutch processed cocoa powder results in a more bitter end product. More sugar must be added to compensate. It took me two failed brownie batches to figure this out. Well, not failed, really. People still ate them.


Drive-by Movie Reviews:

Hanna—what it lacks in story and character development it makes up for in BADASS.

Your Highness—funnier than I expected. In that vulgar, moderately offensive teenaged boy way. Lots of naked boobies. Natalie Portman has fun with some truly creative revenge fantasy monologues.

Hop—mostly sucked. Do not recommend. And I'm usually pretty easy to please when it comes to kids movies. I mean, I even enjoyed The Toothfairy.

FOR NOT TELLING ME ABOUT THIS MOVIE: Zerophilia

Kyle Schmid!

Gina Bellman!

KYLE SCHMID!

And possibly my favorite fanfic pwp premise come to life.

Okay, so you know the movie where one guy seems to be looking another guy up and down and practically sniffing him? And then after some ambiguously flirtatious dialogue the guy will slip away and we with our slash goggles will think, "he totally just left the room to go jerk off." And then his sister comes out and it turns out that she's the "real" love interest and we sigh in disappointment because our slash goggles have just been slapped right off our faces?

THIS IS NOT THAT MOVIE.

THIS IS THE FANFIC WE WANTED THAT MOVIE TO BE.

YOU KNOW, THE FIC WHERE HE REALLY DID LEAVE THE ROOM TO JERK OFF. AND THROUGH THE MAGIC OF CHEEZY SCI-FI PORN LOGIC HIS ORGASM TRIGGERED HIS TRANSFORMATION INTO A WOMAN. AND THEN HE CAME BACK OUT PRETENDING TO BE HIS OWN "SISTER."

YES, THAT FIC.

NO SERIOUSLY -- I AM NOT BEING EVEN REMOTELY HYPERBOLIC HERE. THAT SHIT JUST HAPPENED.



DID I MENTION EVERYONE IS FIRED?!

So I was on Rotten Tomatoes trying to think of a movie to watch and read a curious review of Remember Me. So curious, in fact, that I then had to search google to find out what the movie's (to quote the reviewer) "borderline offensive final twist" was, exactly.

Let's just say, if I hadn't already felt completely justified for crying with laughter over that fic where Robert Pattinson has a foot fetish, I would now.

GOLD STAR, to whomever was responsible for that movie.

WTF is this bullshit about people making sad, pathetic, SEXIST knockoffs of Mr. and Mrs. Smith?

First Katherine Heigl makes the travesty that is Killers.

Now Cameron Diaz makes yet another travesty in Knight and Day.

Seriously, how much of a douchebag does a producer/director/writer have to be to look at a movie like Mr. and Mrs. Smith and think to himself -- 'Lets replace the strong female lead with a helpless dumb blonde'?

Because no one wants to see an action/comedy with a competent female lead in a romance that's actually based on mutual respect. We all know what a terrible *failure* Mr. and Mrs. Smith was at the box office. Clearly what that movie really needed to be a success was DAMSELS AND CHAUVINISM.

NOW THERE'S A BLOCKBUSTER.

So I've started my latest vid project. SPN. Ruby. I'm having fun with the pitch shifter. It's this shiny tool that makes annoyingly high pitched singing voices less high pitched, and therefore less annoying. Just out of curiosity, I tried it on "Dirty Diana." And like magic, Michael Jackson became black again. And Shirley Temple turned into an eighth grade boy.

Yes, my music collection is large and varied. I know all the lyrics to "Hard Knock Life."




NEW SPN THIS WEEK. AM VERY EXCITED.




So I went to the movies last weekend. I think? I'm actually not sure what day of the week it was. I lose track when I'm not in class/working, which I'm not for the next two weeks.

My Top 10 Reasons Why The Twilight Movie Very Surprisingly Did Not Suck

#10 This movie is hilarious. I'm not just talking about myself, here. Apparently numerous theater patrons agree with me.

#9 The actors are good. The teenagers actually act/look like teenagers. The parents actually act/look like parents. The vampires actually act/look like eccentric rich people. I particularly liked Rathbone's performance. He somehow manages to have more personality than everyone else in the movie combined without any speaking lines whatsoever.

#8 The movie is well filmed/edited. It features one of the most effective montages I've seen in recent history.

#7 The music didn't suck! Only one ear bleeding song, and it didn't start up until the credits were rolling and I was able to escape the theater.

#6 There are lots of actors from racial minorities, and they have lots of dialogue. Which kind of makes up for all the Native Americans having exotically long, flowing, raven hair.

#5 The human boys with crushes on Bella are a lot less skeevy in the the movie than they are in the book. Which is to say, they accept rejection far more gracefully.

#4 The girl who has a fantastic rack is complimented on her fantastic rack by two other girls. The boys, meanwhile, are not actually onscreen enough to voice an opinion.

#3 It passes the Bechdel test.

#2 Only one female in the movie looks underfed, and she's not the lead.

#1 Although the movie features numerous deaths, there is only one kill shot. It is of a female vampire, who clearly has dance training, snapping the neck of a male sexual predator, in a ballet studio.

In other news, I really enjoyed Superman Returns.

See, now I really want a Batman Returns sequel to come out. Because Joker. And if Joker, then maybe they'll get it right and give me Harley Quinn.

And I just figured out who would play the perfect Harley. Rachel McAdams. She played the bitch queen in Mean Girls and the heroine in The Notebook. She's curvy enough and tiny enough and has the acting range to be Joker's submissive happy little pet sociopath.

I'm totally picturing her all dolled up in Harley gear waving a hot poker in front of tied up Katie Holmes' face saying in her perfect New York lilt, "Aww sweetie, don't pass out now, we haven't even gotten to the fun part yet."


Her or maaaaaybe Christina Ricci.
