I have co-opted my Sunday for myself; let's see how long that lasts. Yesterday I sorted out a lot of paperwork that needed doing, then spent a few hours in the evening at Baby Cousin's whilst her parents went out. We played Musical Statues which consisted of me occasionally hitting mute on the TV and her laughing as I caught her moving. lolsome times.
Here, have some links:
This actually makes me laugh a lot (I'm pretty certain that Logan's claws aren't half the length of his arm), but I'm also pretty psyched for it. SHUT UP OKAY. Plus: trailer's officially out now. I am basically waiting for this film to smack me around, but I doubt anything can be as terrible as X3. OR CAN IT? (Lols. I don't know what it is: I never got into the comic adaptations - I hate Spiderman and I've yet to see Batman - but I've always had a soft spot for X-Men in all its permutations. Plus: am ridic excited for Watchmen and everything I know about that I learned from raeyashi. lols.)
02. Site/trailer for 500 Days of Summer
Starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Zooey Deschanel. With thanks to sendero_oculto for reminding me about this film. I feel like this film - much like Rachel Getting Married - is something I'll never get the chance to see, despite being terribly excited for it.
03. Lykke Li performs I'm Good, I'm Gone for The Black Cab Sessions
I have recently taken a great liking to Lykke Li's album. I first heard her on one of the podcasts I'm subscribed to, and though I starred that song (Little Bit), I found that I wasn't all that interested in the rest of her stuff. Until I heard her perform Dance, Dance, Dance with Bon Iver and I heard her do a live set of her tracks for another podcast. Suddenly I couldn't get Dance, Dance, Dance out of my head, so I bought the album. The album has a high production value which really works for it, but the way the live sessions are pared down is amazing. I love that Black Cab Session; lots of hand claps. Hearts.
04. Coraline (trailer)
Based on the book by Neil Gaiman; I heard about this book when I was in secondary school but I never read it. My perception of the plot has been completely altered by this trailer. I don't know if that's because the tone of the trailer is very "wheee kids' film!" or if the plot really isn't all that sinister, but either way: not what I thought it was about. (Also: Co-ra-line not Co-ra-leen? Really?)
I watched Battlestar Galactica yesterday, and I do not have too much to say about it other than I felt an immeasurable amount of relief watching it again, which is possibly a very strange reaction to have, but for a while there I was of the mind they'd never air the second half of the season. I liked the episode. That's all I want to say until we get the next episode.
Thus endeth this terribly informative post.
edit: So a couple of nights ago I changed my tags because I was bored. I was going to change them back yesterday but I haven't gotten around to it just yet, and anyway, my inner adolescent still finds them incredibly amusing. True story: I have lost a tag, specifically, 'movies.' Goshdarn.
edit2: Oh, wait: found it. Phew!
