So for Christmas, I got tickets to the Newsies Musical.

But, that is only Part 1 of today's adventurous day of adventure.

Mom and I left the house around 1030 and made it to DC (after some trafficy nonsense) by like 1245ish, I think? We managed to find a place to park without issue, grabbed a rather unimpressive lunch, wandered around Barnes and Noble for a bit and headed to the National Theater, where the show started at 2.

We had pretty awesome seats - like 6th row on the left orchestra - and the building was blissfully cool after the gross humidity outside. The people behind us had no idea what the show was about, like no idea, so it was a rather interesting eavesdropped conversation listening to their theories based on the playbill.

I've seen the movie a ton of times and well, there were a lot of changes.

SPOILERS! )

STAR TREK

So, saw Star Trek Into Darkness at 11pm on Wednesday night with some Frostburg friends. All I can say:

1.) It was awesome.
2.) Benedict Cumberbatch is amazing and is like an invincible version of Sherlock with Moriarty's attitude in an 'I will burn the heart out of you - THAT'S WHAT PEOPLE DO!' sort of way.
3.) There is much to be happy about if you are a Kirk/Spock shipper (me). Or a Kirk/McCoy shipper. Or, well, probably any shipper.
4.) I cried.
5.) Seeing it again next week.

Also, here, this is kind of Valentine's themed. In a sad sort of miserable way. And also the 'if I Only Had A Heart' sort of way, given that it's a backstory of the Tin Woodsman. Really cool short film! Check it out!

Heartless: The Story of the Tin Woodsman

2. Go to http://www.imdb.com/, and find a quote from each movie.
3. Post them here for everyone to guess.
4. Strike it out when someone guesses correctly, and put who guessed it and the movie.
5. No cheating!

01. "Can I rely on you not to get me killed?" // "I guarantee nothing."

02. "Don't you think it would be better if you referred to 'it' as him?" // "If you say so." // "Your compassion's overwhelming, Doctor."

03. "My name is Very Fucking Confused, what's your name?" Saw

04. "Unfaithful lover long since dead. Deep asleep in thy wormy bed. Wiggle thy toes, open thine eyes, twist thy fingers toward the sky. Life is sweet, be not shy. On thy feet. So sayeth I!" Hocus Pocus

05. "It's the millennium, motives are incidental." Scream

06. "What do you want me to tell you?" // "Something less perplexing than a ghost story!" Dead Silence

07. "No, you haven't been having any progress, and you're *not* in control. *It* is in control, and if you think you're in control, then you're being an idiot! Not a single thing you've done has helped, and I'm sorry, I don't mean to burst your bubble, but the camera hasn't helped and the stupid footprints haven't helped; do you think that thing would have left footprints if it didn't want to? No! It did it because it wanted to! It wanted you to find my photo, it can be anywhere, it hears what we're saying right now."

08. "The police thought that it was what the old-timers used to call cabin fever. A kind of claustrophobic reaction which can occur when people are shut in together over long periods of time." The Shining

09. "I just wish that... all those people hadn't died here. I mean... ugh! A guy kills his whole family. Doesn't that bother you?" // "Well, sure... but houses don't have memories." The Amityville Horror

10. "She doesn't like it in the barn. The horses keep her up at night." The Ring

11. "One bright day in the middle of the night, two dead boys got up to fight. Back to back they faced each other, drew their swords and shot each other." Haunting in Conneticut

12. "From the eternal sea he rises, creating armies on either shore, turning man against his brother, until man exists no more." The Omen

13. "He neglected to mention that downtown, they call this place Camp Blood." Friday the 13th

14. "You guys have no imagination. It's like your playing checkers... And I'm playing chess." Cry_Wolf

15. "It's not the same on film is it? I mean, you know it's real, but it's like looking through the lens gives you some sort of protection from what's on the other side."

16. "Leftovers, when you should know that chicken tastes better when it's back on the bone."

17. "Of course you may, sir! You may use the one in the, um... no. Uh, you could use the one in the stud... no. Uh, uh, would you be kind enough to wait in the, um, in-in the, um, uh library?" Clue

18. "What the fuck kinda dog do you have?" Cursed

19. "Edward Saladhands just groped Josh!" Hostel

20. "You've tricked and fooled your readers for years. You've tortured us all with surprise endings that made no sense. You've introduced characters in the last five pages that were never in the book before. You've withheld clues and information that made it impossible for us to guess who did it. But now, the tables are turned. Millions of angry mystery readers are now getting their revenge. When the world learns I've outsmarted you, they'll be selling your $1.95 books for twelve cents."

1. X-Men: First Class. I am kind of late to this party, but that movie was fucking awesome. Mahor thanks to [livejournal.com profile] paytofay for telling me to see it. Also, seeing movies with fellow slashers makes them infinitely more awesome because at least I know I am not imagining that awesomeness happening on the screen.

On that note - Thoughts )

2. Cirque du Freak - Darren/Steve. I'm only on the 3rd book, but the movie alone is what grabbed me on this one. The hating on each other-mortal enemies thing could have been avoided, god damn it! "I did not want to be a vampire, Steve! I never wanted this! You were dying - because of that stupid, stupid, spider - and it was the only way to save you. I had to agree to get the anti-venom to save you." The end. Crisis avoided. Steve knew he was turned at the funeral, but he didn't know why and it was after that he started to go darkside. Gah. Boys. Why?

3. My Babysitter's A Vampire. Okay. I was bored. It was on TV. It was not what I expected. It was actually not horrible for a Disney movie. Ethan and Benny are pretty much Tommy and Merton. Only replace werewolf and goth sidekick with Seer and Spellcaster. Which, yay! Not a useless sidekick! Although, most of the situations they get into are Benny's fault. In the TV series that just started airing, it's usually over girls (also like BWoC), and involves purely ridiculous nonsense (raising pets form the dead who then go all zombified, dressing up as cheerleaders to defeat an evil cheerleader witch (and oh, god, the crossdressing is hilarious! (also, what is it with kid shows lately and boys dressing as girls, Big Time Rush does it all the fucking time!))). There is sadly, no fic at all for this. At least not that I have been able to find. This makes me sad.

4. Suits. I have not seen enough to form much of an opinion for Suits. Harvey/Mike seems obvious (also, why did USA name another main character Michael? Especially on a show that airs RIGHT AFTER Burn Notice???) We shall see.


Also, Big Time Rush is kind of ridiculously awesome.

I was kind of disappointed in both the White Collar and Burn Notice premiers. Leverage was okay, though.

So, still sick. Which sucks, majorly. I've had a collective five hours of sleep over the last two nights because I can't stop coughing. It's so annoying. I can't wait to not be sick. I have, however, watched like every Scooby Doo episode ever (Where are You!, Scooby Doo Show, and what was released on DVD for New Scooby Doo Movies) along with most of the movies (Boo Brothers, Reluctant Werewolf, Ghoul School, Zombie Island, Witch's Ghost, and Alien Invaders) along with the only one of the CGI movies I can stand to watch (Mystery Begins). And, no I don't care that I'm 20 years old and watching Scooby Doo. At all.

It was also funny watching everyone freak out over the two inches of snow we got down here. Schools closed all over the place and it was funny knowing that if I were still in Frostburg, we most assuredly would have still had classes. And hearing people whine about 25/30 degrees being cold is just laughable.

Did get a book read in my state of forced-insomnia, though. Seven Tears Into The Sea = Done.

Hopefully I'll be not-sick enough to go to work on Friday.

Despite the fact that I despise seeing Christmas/Holiday stuff anywhere prior to Thanksgiving, I feel compelled to post this. It's certainly not Kiss Kiss Bang bang: The Sequel, but it is RDJ and Val Kilmer and hilarity.
