PS on the Alice movie Issue

Wes Craven was suppose to direct, but he didn't like the scrpit supposedly.

That's a bad sign, right?

Regents & The (unwanted) Return of Sarah Michelle

First and foremost, the Regents are going better than planned. I supremely kicked ass on the two part English regents, as if there were any doubt there, and today I felt that I did pretty damn well on the U.S. History & Government. I thank JohnK for his help. Believe it or not John, everything I asked you about and we went over was on the damn test. Take that Murphy!

For those of you who don't know what the New York State Regents exam is I shall tell you: it's a series of test mandatory for New York state students to take in order to prove that they actually learned something in school. Though all of the tests (in my opinion), with the exception of the math ones, are simple. All it really takes is test taking skills, the ability to read and comprehend, and two days of studying out of the Baron's Regents Guide on whatever you;re about to take. I seriously don't know why I was panicking.

In any case, a bit of mixed news from the site DarkHorizons:


Universal Pictures is making "Alice," an adaptation of video game "American McGee's Alice," with Sarah Michelle Gellar attached to star for "Texas Chainsaw Massacre" director Marcus Nispel says
The Hollywood Reporter.

Now, I have ABSOLUTELY no problem with Universal making a movie for the game of American McGee's creation, God bless his twisted mind. The game is really interesting. Basically it's the story of Alice in Wonderland. Only this time the characters around you are more than crazy and bizarre, they're psychotic and homicidal. It's up to you as Alice to give them some tough love with your huge butcher knife.

This is how I remember the game, but you can get more info
here.

In any case, like I said it's not the concept of them making this movie that sickens me, it's the fact that Sarah Michelle Gellar has to come into all this. It's just going to make the movie clique, and it's type casting here as the pretty yet ass-kicking blonde heroin girl. People who haven't played the game, yet have seen Buffy, will scoff this off. The movie won't even get a chance, which is what really upsets me. And who, might you ask, do I suggest to play Alice besides who the close minded Hollywood producers were going to obviously pick?

Well, how about the girl from Resident Evil who played, urm Alice? Yeah, well I see how that wouldn't work. Well then how about the girl who played Faith if we must pick someone who is experienced in the art of butt whupping strange demonic critters? Give her that ragged growing out of a bleach job look. It would fit with the atmosphere of the game that the movie must take up. (notice must, not could)

In any case I don't, and I repeat DON'T want Sarah MG playing this role. I mean, isn't she getting a bit too old in any case? Alice in the game is 16, 17 tops. Gellar is past the point where she can play such young roles. If any of you have any suggestions, please tell me. I really would like to hear them for onc
e

Jealous, The Green Eyed Monster...Or is that an angry Irishman?

I just finished listening to the 4th IMAO pod cast, and before I say anything else, it's wonderful. An absolute dream for IMAO fanatic screwballs like me. The only complaint I have is that I downloaded the stupid software to let me listen to past pod casts and it's not working. Stupid piece of free internet junk...

In any case I find myself becoming immensely jealous now of anyone that has a pod cast. I want a pod cast. I'm funny...I can do a pod cast that people would like...WHY CAN'T I DO A POD CAST TOO!!!

I mean, I think if someone where to record me and a few of my friends when we're on a comedic roll that it'll be some A material. Then again the problem is that when we're on a roll it's usually when quoting IMAO, Ann Coulter and other funny righties. But in any case, that settles it. I need to make a pod cast of something. Maybe of my...No that's a FrankJ trademark too. GODDAMNIT!!

*sigh* None the less, I shan't be defeated in my goal of making a web site with a pod cast. I just need to find an audience I can enslave...I mean that I can have subscribe to my particular brand of funny. Yeah...That's it. Subscribe...

It's a Franchising Frenzy!!

I went to my cousins' house Saturday and watched this movie that came out when I was a kid, FernGulley: The Last Rainforest. My cousin, Gabby, Lord bless his soul. Asked me when the sequel came out, or when it's coming out.

When I tried to explain that the movie was made before everything had a sequel, it was near impossible. Actually, it was impossible. He still wants to know where he can go to find it.

I think this is a sad thing. It's a sign of the times that I don't like. I know the movie companies like not taking the risk, and that franchising is the new thing, but someone needs to stop this. It's getting ridiculous. No one needs to see a sequel to EVERY SINGLE MOVIE THAT COMES OUT. It's going too far.

I'm telling you, it's going to take me bringing my wrath upon Hollywood for this to stop. I swear to you all, I shall be the female Tim Burton, and bring a new light to Hollywood. Because I swear to the Lord Johnny Depp and all that is holy, that the age of unreasoning must end. Push or shove or twelve gage shotgun.

The Legend Continues...

Although I'm pretty sure that's going to be the campaign slogan for what I'm about to talk about, I don't care. I used it first. So there. It's even dated...

eh-em....

IT'S HERE IT'S HERE IT'S FINALLY HERE!!!!

What's here you might ask? The new installment of Tomb Raider is what! My favorite gaming series has a new installment coming out, and might I say, Lara is looking quite luscious! New graphics, I'm pretty sure new game play. I saw the preview (albeit incredibly tiny in screen size) on the AOL gamin page. The slogan they have for our favorite gaming heroin is: From tomb raider...To hero...To legend.

Ah...The happiness spills forth from my soul!! Oh, by the way...Just because I'm posting about it now, doesn't mean I didn't know about it before. I just didn't say anything because I hadn't seen any commercials or whatnot. But now that I have...I can officially start my public celebrations.

Pick Up Line That Should Never Be Used

  • Your daddy must be a terrorist, because baby- you da bomb!
  • Baby, I'm an American Express lover....You shouldn't go home without me!
  • Hey baby, wanna play lion? OK. You go kneel right there and I'll throw you my meat.
  • I am not a queen but I'll give you something royal.
  • You have nice pants, and I have a cute dress -- wanna set up an appointment to help each other out of them?
  • I'll bet you'd look good in or out of anything.
  • What's your sign? I hope your sign is "Yield."
  • That dress would look great on the floor next to my bed.
  • Be different and say yes!
  • So, are you a Skinner or a fucker? (some explain this one to me!)
  • (To someone who's a few pounds overweight:)
    You: "Hey, sexy, sexy, sexy!"
    Them: "Why'd you say that 3 times?"
    You: "Because I think of you like 3 hot chicks rolled into one!"

If anyone used that on me, I'd have to ask John to call up that lawyer pal of his.

  • You look like a hooker I knew in Fresno.
  • Your name must be McDonalds, 'cause I'm lovin' it!
  • Hey baby, I think you made my two by four into a four by eight.

There are so many more, I can't even begin to list them, but you get my drift.

Finally, It Is Completed!!

Jesus H. Christ, do you know how long it took me to finally post that Buffy story properly?!?! So frustrating that I had to break it up into separate little stories and load it all piece by piece! But you know want to know about that do you?

Well even if you didn't you would've had no choice. It's my blogger and I'll whine if I want to. But right now I don't feel like reliving the experience, so I'll just supply you with the precious link I know you've all been dying for: The Last of The First.

Yup that's the title. Don't like it? Tough shit. Ain't your story, it's mine. Now please, enjoy! ^.^

Regents Are Evil

....Yeah that pretty much covers it. Regents are evil, and I have to take my English regents tomorrow, and the next day too apparently because it's a two day test.

I hate regents. They suck. A lot. As goddess of the universe I declare that the New York State regents creators are public enemy number one! I would love to not be taking these tests, but alas I must. And, I shall repeat...It blows.

Well, I have almost all of the next week to myself. Anyone have any requests of my time, feel free to leave a comment. The only days I can't hang out are the 21st and the 22nd. This is because that's when I have to take my Earth Science and U.S. History and Government Regents!!!

grr....

Please, anybody ask me to hang out. I don't want to have to leave the house with nothing to do. I have a whole weekend to get things in order. I pray people will want to hang out with me. And if they don't...Well I'll just kill everyone. Slowly and painfully.

Good night to you all.

You Might Want To Know About This Useless Piece of Info

The level of terrorist attack possibility is yellow. What does yellow mean? We are in an significantly elevated level of terrorist attack.

Is it just me, or is this system played out and stupid. As the United States of America, the good ole U.S. of fucking A., aren't we always at an elevated level of being attacked by terrorist? By people who give all their attentions to attacking us, which if they used on themselves, would give them...I don't know, housing? Plumbing? Phone and cable lines? An economic system?

*sigh* This Homeland Security Advisory System is stupid. We're not kindergarteners, although a strong argument can be made for some.

We do NOT need some Sesame Street grade system to tell us that we are in danger of being attacked. No matter what those Demoncrats say. We are never, and may I repeat that, NEVER gonna be down to a low level (blue for those who go by color) of security. Well, that is unless we drop out of the U.N. and do what we gotta do.

And then afterward bomb the U.N., which should already be on our list of things to do.

Please Ignore What You Might Have Read...

I had posted something on this blog while under the influence and completely marred it by dragging in emotional crap. Half of it, which after review, was obvious crap. Some of it was true, yes, and if you read it I wont say what parts.

apparently the suicide wasn't true, because I'm here, duh!

In any case, I had an okay day today. John gave me my cell phone back and we sat in the train station talking for quite a while. I really enjoyed myself. Nothing else to say. I yet again apologize if you saw that crap that was posted before. It's deleted now, thank heaven.

Nothing's wrong, everyone keep shopping.

Just As I've Always Suspected...


How evil are you?

I miss my phone, but that's not the point!!!

My beloved cell phone is at John's house, and I'm afraid he's going to hold it hostage to stop me from calling him so much...So I'm a little worried right now.

In any case, I didn't finish yesterday, but we mainly just hung out, but that's not important! I have something funny to share! Well, more than one. Funniest thing first, this is not in chronological order.

John dropped me off at my house. Now, going back a while in the story, when we were driving to the restaurant, he let go of the wheel and said "Look ma, no hands!" The car shifted a little to the right while he let go, and remembering what my dad said about testing for a flat, I casually said that John's car had a flat tire. I think the front right tire, maybe the back one. Doesn't matter.

Fast forwarding a bit to when he was driving me home: He kept on JYNXING himself saying that this was too easy. I had forgotten about the tire thing by then, and said that Murphy couldn't touch him, since he had already struck by making my mom angry at me, therefore ruining my day. Besides, I had always told him that driving me home wasn't too hard, and was always easy. That I didn't know why he always made a big deal of it.

Boy, was I wrong.

Murphy struck with a vengeance and gave him a flat tire. The first thing that came to mind wasn't, "Oh my god, is john okay? Is Kat alright?", it was "See, if I would have been the second person he dropped off I would have gotten to spend more time with him."

Yeah, I know, I'm sick. Tell me something I don't know.

Anyway, my second thought, right after that one, was "Jesus, didn't John say something would go wrong?" and I began to laugh. Right after that thought, I began to laugh harder because I remembered telling him something about the tire. By the way, I found this out AFTER I updated my blog. But I wish I would have found out so I could have put it up sooner.

In any case, the second funniest thing of that day was when we went to our original destination. John wanted to take us to some Chinese place him and Dan, Mel's bro, had gone to before. When we got there, we saw a big yellow flyer saying it was closed. Wanna know who closed it?

That's right boys and girls! The Department of Health and Mental Hygiene! Oh, that provided for a good laugh at the expense of John's security in his health. What I really want to hear is Dan's reaction to this. Unlike John, I'm supposing he has emotions and will provide for a good laugh. Then again, John's facial expression was pretty damn funny.

Ah well, that's the news for today so far. A note to John and Dan, you might what to get some blood work done or something. You know, make sure you're healthy and mentally hygienic. ^_^

Such a Full Day!

I'm so very happy! Care to know why?

Too bad, you're gonna find out anyway.

Kenny is back! Who is Kenny? Well, he's my Buck the Marine, or Joe Foo if you will. (see FrankJ as usual) To put it bluntly he's someone I care for dearly who went off into the army. He use to be to me what dear ol' JohnyK is now, only not as much. He was a crash coarse in having someone care for my mental well being. In any case, he's back in the states, living in VA and working at the Pentagon in D.C. Then again, that's a stupid thing to say. I mean, where ELSE is the Pentagon? In any case, he's a buck sergeant whatever that means. (Jason, a definition if you please?)

I might be seeing him this summer, if I do, I'll die of happiness. This summer promises to be the best so far.

Anyway I went to see John today and met Kat and Mel. (word up Kat, my blog reading homette) In anyway case, the day with him and them went good. More detail later, gotta go now. Laters!

Finally, I join the force!

Work force that is! ^_^

Yes, I will finally be able to join the holy rat race that is our beloved system of capitalism. I've been offered a job at the cafe across the street. Oh course, this is not the usual independent cafe where hippies gather and such. No, this is a cafe owned by a woman who I believed use to be a CEO or high rank company worker of some sort. I've talked to this woman before and have grown to respect her for being able to live out her dream of owning her own business.

Basically she's someone I can tolerate working for.

I'm very happy about this. It's a cool job in the food industry, which I've always wanted to work in. Plus the fact that the place is ACROSS THE STREET. You know, that's a very convenient thing. I can take my time getting ready, plus make a great impression by being to work on time everyday.

But what I really cant wait to do...Besides officially join our beloved capitalistic society...Is to get all that neato MONEY!! You know, money? The stuff you can use to buy material objects and services? I've come into some before, and I think it's just swell, don't you?

Oh yeah, financial independence, here I come!

ps...Certain people who have the initials John-Emery Konecsni and Jason...Whatever his last name is, need to remember to leave comments when they read my journal, you know? So I know if they dropped by or not? That is all.

Help, I need someone...

Really...Just anyone right now who can hold a descent conversation. I'm really bored here. And I have writers block again. Well, not really that. It's just too mother fucking hot to by typing away furiously, which is how I type when I write my stories. You obviously can tell (or maybe you can by looking at the time stamp) but I'm typing at a relatively leisurely pace compared to how I normally type.

So why I have all this beautiful, super heated free time, why don't I babble for a bit. I haven't babbled in a while...Or according to some of the smart asses out there, that's all I do.

You can't see it but I'm giving all those stupid smart asses the middle finger.

I found out Jason is Jewish. I am upset that this is yet another thing John hasn't told me about his friend. One might ask though...Well why am I obsessing over Jason? Because he's avoiding me is why. He doesn't have to go to work Saturday, he's just being what some people call responsible. Pssh. Being this so called responsible person is merely for parents, guardians, and people who have their hand over those shiny read buttons that can start nuclear wars.

You would know that if you read my comment a few entries down.

Yes, speaking of hanging out with John's...Special friends, there's an event going down in central park that it seems I will be attending. Some of you might know about that "Shakespeare in the Park" event, but for those who don't it's just what it sounds like. You watch a Shakespeare play in central park. I think this year it's "Much Ado About Nothing", but seriously don't quote me on that. It might be something else.

Saturday is on. Which makes me happy. I got my shirt. If I get a digital camera that WORKS, I'll show you a pic, but it says "Everyone Loves a Catholic Girl". Which indeed they do. Because Catholics are the bomb. Word to my rosary rocking homies.

Okay. I'm done. Before I begin to rant about boy problems or anything, I'm checking out of this nut house. Well...For now at least.

And Rebuilding Is Wrong BECAUSE!?

I really don't see how people can be so offended by the idea of rebuilding the Towers. I don't think it's offense in any way whatsoever. I'm trying to think of a valid reason why people would be so offended by such a thing. I mean, sorry to...No wait, I'm not sorry for saying this. People need to stop living in the past.

This is not saying that we forget about the victims of Sept. 11. This is saying that people need to learn how to remember the past while living in the present and into the future. A good way to do this is to rebuild the Towers. Why do this? Well, it's a good way to AVOID this whole crap with the West Side Stadium. Instead of making something completely new to rake in the money, we should rebuild what we had. I mean, from what I know, it worked pretty well.

But there should be something there to remind us what lives were lost because people hated the ideal they were working out: the ideal of Capitalism. The idea that you get what you deserve. That those who work can get what is coming to them, and the same going to those laze hippies.

I think in the lobby connecting the two towers, there should be a Vietnam-style memorial for those who lost their lives in this senseless attempt to terrorize us. It should be under a sky light, or some other type of lighting, so that it would always be highlighted, the center piece of the entire plaza. On the wall should be inscribed all the names of the lives lost. Civilians having their names in white, police officers in gold, firemen in silver and EMTs in copper. In the center of it all should be an area where people can sit and look at the names.

Because of course, with a memorial like this, you don't simply walked through and past. If you do that, what's the point of doing it at all. You have to have some place where you can sit down and look at it all, and properly pay tribute and remember.

Now I know, I'm not architect. But it just sounds like a nice idea to me. Least we forget, which I know I never will.

Damn The Germans & The U-Boats They Came In On!!!

German people suck, and not only for the obvious reasons of Hitler and his cronies...

No the new reason is because of their stupid shoe line known by the name Birkenstock. Now I know, I should know better than to wear anything that hippies wear or have worn. But the shoes looked so cute and ...unhippie like. I thought for once they did a shoe right and I might as well give it a shot. (not on my own dollar, of course)

Yeah well, there's really no explanation needed. I wore the shoes today, and my feet got dirty and I developed somewhat of a semi-callous. I had hippie feet and I had to use every ounce of self control to stop myself from gnawing them off...

In any case, this leads to my opinion that Germans now officially suck. No amount of chocolate can make up for how shitty those sandals were. Next time, I'm just gonna buy a good ol' pair of All Star Converse. The American classic made by underage sweat shop workers. ^_^

How Long Can One Day Be?

Apparently, extremely long.

It seems that this Sunday is never going to end. Sundays, in my own personal experience, is usually a reflection of how the rest of the week is to be.

This sign does not bode well...

In any case, I've been thinking about certain things. One of them being that I need to learn how to balance my time. I always claim to have nothing to do, when indeed I DO have things to do. I have books I can read, stories I need to work on, online forms I must fill out: the list goes on and on. But then I realize...I'm just lazy. It's my nature to laze about, and it gets boring.

Therefore, I've come to the conclusion that nature sucks.

ARISE! FOR IT IS A DAY OF CELEBRATION!!

Everyone arise in joyous celebration! Let us flood the streets with our songs and revelry! Why might you ask? Well, today is the day on which someone who is even more glorious than I was birthed into this world!

Yes, oh mortal readers of this blog, today is the day that my beloved FrankJ was born!!!

...WHAA!! You have never heard of the magnificent FrankJ and his lovely bride to be, SarahK! You sicken me! Why are you even reading this blog! Quickly, before I throw my wrath upon your pathetic soul, educate yourself on the awe inspiring, celestrial greatness that is, FrankJ.

Now that you have educated yourself, or have properly given thanks, there are other things to announced on this, a holy day of obligation in my universe:

Although I am pretty sure that no one has told me, I have found out not but a few minutes ago that JohnnyK's friends Jason has his blog on blogspot as well. I'm pretty sure that I was purposely left out, as is customary to do to the youngest and newest. But that's okay. I'll just track and stalk Jason to assure that the rest of his days are spent in miserable agony.

Tee-hee. ^_^

Speaking of, next Saturday is the day I finally meet up with John's little group. The afore mentioned Jason will not be there, but instead he is meeting up with everyone today. Leaving me out in the cold to contemplate a fit punishment for his insolence. Job, shmob. Doesn't he know that I, Raquel, ruler of all I behold, am more important? Jesus, you would think that everyone would know by now...

Speaking of my comrade in weirdness, John is going to get published. He has sent his manuscript to the publisher, and is awaiting the already known outcome. Of course, if they decide not to publish him, I'll just have to...Rectify that slight oversight of John's literary genius.

On a final note, I'd like to extend a get-well wish to my friend Linda. She, apparently, forgot that the number one rule of physics is that heat makes water go bye-bye. In short: she got a fever and landed herself in the hospital with a case of dehydration. She's out of the hospital now, doing better I hope, but I would like to give her this message:

Linda, sweetie, take good care of yourself alright? If you need any help, you know I'm just a hop, skip, and wheel chair roll away, willing to help you with everything but changing your bed pan. Remember to drink PLENTY OF FLUIDS!! Love- Your Lord and Master, *Commander Raquel.


*the explanation to that nickname will be explained at a later time.
