Would you be willing to have horrible nightmares every night for a year if you would be rewarded with extraordinary wealth?
I don’t think so; I already have lucid dreams that can be rather terrifying at points. Plus, I’m not that interested in money. I see it as a necessarily evil, though.

What was the most recent movie that made you cry?
Well, the first time I saw Zombieland (I saw it twice) I almost cried at one point. Before that, I can’t remember. I am sensitive and cry a lot, but I don’t remember which movies since I watch a bunch.

Would you rather be stranded on an island alone or with someone you hate?
I don’t particularly hate anyone. I’d probably rather be alone, though. I’m a loner by nature.

What’s one new thing you tried this summer than you’ve never done before?
Opened myself for someone to see.

What is the one thing you miss the most about summer when it is over?
I don’t particularly miss summer when it is gone; although, it can be nice, Autumn, Winter, and Spring trump it.

If you could eliminate one source of anger in your life right now, what would it be?

What is one thing that you would change about yourself if you could?
I can’t say I’d change anything about myself; that’s not to say I think I’m perfect. If you made me change something, perhaps I’d make myself less intelligent.

Name three exotic countries you would like to visit:
Sealand (is that considered one?), Saudi Arabia, and 7-11.

What do you think the secret to life is?
Not dying? In all seriousness, finding what you love and giving it your all.

At the local theater, movies can be seen on Tuesday for a dollar. Every other day, the admission is $2.50. The only drawback is that they aren’t new or even close to being new. Seeing as I don’t keep up with movie reviews or go to movies really often when Harry Potter is not in the title, these movies are brand new to me.

I generally avoid advertisements, since I don’t watch television nor have ads enabled on my web browser. The few I see are when I go to Stardust which are a few for a couple of hours. Generally, these are put to go to random concerts. I also don’t talk to many people; when I do, the conversation isn’t usually about movies. That being said, I decided I might as well write a little about what I thought of the movies I see. This is just an excuse to write a little more.

Tonight, I saw Land of the Lost and The Soloist.

Land of the Lost
I didn’t know what to think before seeing this movie. On one hand, I don’t think I’ve ever seen a Will Ferrel movie I didn’t find hilarious. But, I also didn’t know what to think about a crossover from a show I never watched. Regardless, that didn’t matter much in the long run. If it wasn’t close to the source material, I would never know. Nor, do I really care. Sort of like Harry Potter, I take the movies how they are and disregard whatever has been in place.

Did I enjoy the movie? Very much so. It might not have been a masterpiece; not that I really care. I’m not trained in the art of critique. Sure, I have an opinion, but I have no idea what makes a movie or anything else ‘perfect.’ It had a B-movie feel to it, so it felt right at home. So, I saw the spoilers come before they happened. That’s like saying you didn’t think Harry Potter would defeat Voldemort in the end. Well, perhaps, he might not have. But, someone would have. And, that’s all that matters.

One scene in particular got me going; I have some weird respect for T-pain and Cher. Those two combined would make one hell of an artist.

The Soloist
This movie caught my heartstrings. No, I didn’t cry. Though, I’m not sure why I didn’t. It was very cry-worthy. My cousin cried at multiple points during it. Regardless, it had me interested through the whole movie which could or could not be a hard thing to do. My attention span is nil. If you like music, and you like sad movies intertwined with a bit of laughter, you’ll probably like this.

How did they fare?

Both were totally worth the dollar it cost to see them.

When and with whom was your first kiss?
My first kiss was freshman year at a football game with a stupid girl. No, I don’t like football.

Do you believe that everything happens for a reason?
No, but I believe that bad and good happen to everyone regardless of karma. I also believe that just because one is happy doesn’t mean they’re doing the right thing. Or just, because one is unhappy doesn’t mean they’re doing the wrong thing nor is someone else interfering.

What would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates?
I do not believe in god, but I don’t say he can’t exist. As if our minds could comprehend truth in the first place. I want him to sing the Price is Right failure sound.

Name two things at which you consider yourself to be very good:
Depression, Complaining.

Name two things at which you consider yourself to be bad:
Life, Love. (As if they’re two different things.)

Name one thing not many people know about you:
When you ask how I am, I lie.

What is the longest love relationship (partner) you have had, and if it has ended, why?

To be honest, I’ve never had one; just a lot of crushes. I can’t say none of those have been mutual, but I’ve never had a proper relationship.

What is on your bedside table?

That depends on your definition; for one, I don’t have a room. I sleep on a futon in the living room. There are three tables adjacent to me. On the one to the left of the futon, I have my iMac and my second monitor. To the side right side of those, I have a CRT with a Gamecube and a Ps2.
In front of it are two guitar cases, my 12″ PowerBook G4, a speaker for my surround sound, my Bamboo Fun tablet, and my external backup drive.

In front of the futon is a coffee table, and that is piled with junk my cousin and I are working on.

To the right of the futon is another comptuer.

How many pillows do you have on your bed? Do you make your bed every day?
There are three pillows on my bed: two from the futon itself and a proper pillow.

It’s safe to say that I have never really made my bed.
