I never thought I would miss the insanity that is Pratt but I genuinely do. I feel so unproductive here (though I am working on a side project for BW so that's good). It's been a month and I've been given a total of ONE real project and a bunch of vague directions for projects that will be done in the future. It makes it difficult to WANT to do anything, too. Speaking of assignments, the one that I do have is a group project (which is good for a first project because I'd be lost without Manuela and her amazing patience when it comes to explaining shit to me in a mix of Italian and broken English) and we JUST got a typed brief today.

When I got to class Silvia, the girl who wants to go to Pratt next semester, came over and we talked briefly. She asked me if I'd read New Moon. Kind of random. I guess it was because Twilight is a huge thing in the US for certain age groups. Or I give off a vibe that reels lovers of the Sparklepire.

Uploaded photos to photobucket and will post them tomorrow. Promise. Tweet me if I don't, 'kay? *expects Erica, Amanda and Nicole to respond alla Pee Wee's Playhouse*


Random observation: You tweet once using the word "vegan" and all of a sudden you're followed by one on Twitter.

My friends and I finally watched our shitty copy of Twilight. Amanda's description of the whole night was pretty perfect: "It was like going to the dentist...but with friends".

Twilight Review Vlog is pretty much done. I've cut the footage together and there are bits where it's mostly my footage and Melis's because we filmed the most but I've tried to balance it out. Anyway, I'm currently working on background music and I think I've done okay with that. I've pretty much put whatever I thought would work in the background and be fun. I'm currently stuck on what song to used for the credits (yes, I'm doing credits...mostly because I feel like it, I'll decide later if they stay). Also debating random video to put after said credits...and possibly outtakes (not that there really are any from people other than me). Anyway, the song. I need song suggestions. I'm thinking pop music. Or something really serious. I don't know. I'm leaning towards upbeat pop music. Suggestions?

The review is almost a half hour long...wow.

Progress on the Twilight Collab Vlog is somewhat slow. Mostly because I keep on needing to move files from my harddrive to an external harddrive because I was stupid and didn't just work off one in the first place. Now every time I render it's telling me there isn't enough drive space and I need to clear more files. That part is quite unfun. The fun bits happen when I put the different clips together. Keep in mind, my lovely collaborators, that not all of your footage will be used. I'll be trying to keep the camera time even among us and I'm still wondering if I will use background music or not. Right now I have a pretty sweet intro (if I do say so myself) with music that has NOTHING to do with the story but I want to have some songs that are appropriate, however I can't think of how to get them in there without them overpowering the snark.

Work-wise, I have this weekend off and am hopefully heading to NJ to hang with some friends. I'm still not 100% that I can go but I really hope that it all works out and that I will be there. Heaven knows you'll need emotional support for the Avatar finale watching. :-P

Speaking of friends...IchiP! Yeah, I'm looking at you! When the hell are you going to edit that interview thing? You don't even have to put it on youtube. I just wanna see it. *hint hint*

I want something to eat. Preferably chocolatey. And maybe some tea. I am a tea addict.

SPARKLES!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Re: Twilight-- FINISHED!!! More snark-summary to come.

Apparently I was driving next to one of the guys I work with on Sunday night (well, Monday morning). He now has decided I'm a crazy ass driver (I told him I like to accelerate but always go the speed limit) and at one point called me Speed Racer. We never really talked before so this was new and fun. Now we're more friendly and can actually hold conversations. Who knew that being a "maniac" driver could lead to friendship? Also, Alex was working the salad bar so I got to chill with her. Twas very fun. Except for when it was hella busy. That was not so fun.

Last week of UPenn class. Final is on Thursday. This means I can't participate in Mum and Dad's anniversary outing and I feel really bad about it. I didn't realize! This timing sucks. On the bright side, I said many important things today that my teacher had not thought of as answers to questions, making me feel all smart.

So excited for the Vlog collab review on the board!! We are SO doing this!

"...appallingly luscious"??????????? Oh Edward, you are such a cad!

Bella: Edward, I love you so!

Edward: Bella, I love you more! My undead heart yearns to be near you despite the fact that the closer we get the greater chance I have at losing control and possibly killing you!!! Let's try that kissing thing again!

Bella: Okay! That doesn't sound like a bad idea AT ALL!!!

The Cullin Family: BASEBALL TIEM NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Edward: w00t, baseball!

Bella: ?

Evil!Vampires: WE WANNA PLAY, TOO!!!

Cullin Fam: Erm...no. But you can totes stay at our house tonight. Sleepover!!! Just don't kill anyone, kthx?

Evil!Vamps: No problemo. Not even that delicious lovely looking human girl. None of us will chase after her. Promise *crossing fingers*.

Tracker!Evil!Vamp (aka TEV): Girl smells like strawberries. I must kill her!

Edward: Oh no you don't!!!

Bella, Edward, Emmet and Alice in a car, driving and making crappy plans. This wastes not only time but gas. Hope they don't need to fill up any time soon.

Bella: YOU SHOULD TOTALLY GO WITH MY PLAN 'CAUSE IT'S THE BESTEST OUT OF ALL OF YOUR CRAPTASTIC PLANS!

Alice: Bella is SOOO right.

Edward: *seethes*

At Bella's house of dramatude.

Bella: I'M SO OUT OF HERE CHARLIE. WHO CARES IF MOM IS VISITING IN A WEEK. I'M SOOO TAKING THE TRUCK YOU BOUGHT ME AND PEACING OUT OMG!

Charlie: But...I thought you liked it here.

Bella: OMG. OUT.OF.HERE!

And scene

Edward: You know, this would all be WAY easier if you didn't smell so damned good. I'm like THIS close to sucking your blood. But I'm too good for temptation like that. 'Cause I'm the male lead!

Bella: Oh Edward, you are so sexy when you're possessive and angry and threatening to kill me.

And the story continues...but I haven't read those bits yet...


ETA: WHEN did Edward challenge Tracker!Evil!Vamp?? I TOTALLY missed that. And now it's a plot point. WTF?
arielarena: (Default)
EDWARD: OMG BELLA stop trying to get me to tell you my deep dark secrets. WE CAN'T BE FRIENDS!!

BELLA: BUT EDDY-POO, YOU SAVED ME FROM A TRUCK AND WE ARE SO OBVIOUSLY MEANT TO BE TOGETHER BECAUSE I DREAM OF YOU AND SHIT.

EDWARD: BUT I'M DANGEROUS!!!!! *stalks off...sexily*

BELLA: WTF are you talking about??? *goes to ponder his every move/word/expression for PAGES AND PAGES*

*EDWARD returns*

EDWARD: BELLA, I'VE DECIDED TO PRETTY MUCH STALK YOU. LET'S BE FRIENDS!

BELLA: YOU SAID WE COULDN'T BE FRIENDS, ASSHAT.

EDWARD: ....I lied?

BELLA: You are SO LUCKY that you're sexy.

EDWARD: Don't you mean DAZZLING??

BELLA: ?

EDWARD: Oh, that doesn't come up till later...SPOILERS OMG! Anyway, let's go to Seattle TOGETHER. After I get ALL of the boys in the school to ask you to ask them to the dance that you don't want to go to anyway, 'cause you're clumsy.

BELLA: WTF?! *ponders in a very ponder-y way* Sure.

--and scene--

Next day at school...

EDWARD: BELLA SIT WITH ME INSTEAD OF YOUR STUPID-ASS FRIENDS WHOSE NAMES YOU DON'T EVEN REMEMBER HALF THE TIME ANYWAY.

BELLA: I thought you said to stay away from you...WHAT IS THIS SHIT?

EDWARD: I don't care anymore. You SHOULD stay away from me, though. BUT I'M TOTALLY GONNA STALK YOU, FYI.

READER: What...the fuck?


And that's as far as I've read at the moment.


ETA:

Just got to the SPARKLING bit.

Edward Cullen has the mood swings of a pregnant woman with multiple personality disorder.

While stopping at Borders briefly, I decided to attempt reading a part of Twilight. Reasons I knew I wouldn't like it much automatically: It's written in first person. I tend to hate books written in first person. You need to be fucking amazing at writing if you're going to pull that off. Think Invisible Monsters by Chuck Palahniuk. Now THAT is an example of how to do it. Plus, the main character isn't almost immediately unlikeable. Which brings us back to Twilight. I only read up to when her Dad gets her a car and I already don't like her very much.

Spoilers for the first few pages because that's all I bothered to read before closing the book and walking away )
So probably not going to read that book unless someone has it on their computer and wants to send it to me so I don't have to actually pay for it.
