It needs to be fall.

... because I'm sick of summer and this waiting around.
... because I have a backpack full of school supplies just waiting to be used.
... because I miss the crisp crackle of fall air.
... because field hockey is so much better when the weather is cool.
... because I got cute new jeans.
... because I miss my friends.
... because I miss marching band.
... because I miss a certain someone.
... because this is the year I know will be amazing.
... because my braces are coming off.
... because Exchange Student is coming.
... because I miss the unnecessary school drama.
... because I can't wait to be one year stronger, one year smarter, and one year awesomer than the freshmeat.

... because SCHOOL NEEDS TO START NOW.

Blast from the Past: Prehistoric Forest

Remember this?

What about this one?

There's no way you could have forgotten this touching scene.


See, look how nice-- the predator is protecting the prey while they sleep! Awww...

In case you lived a sheltered life, all these pictures are from the now-defunct Prehistoric Forest in the picturesque Irish Hills (also known as Creepyville USA). This was my absolute favorite place on the planet (besides Disney World) as a child, because it made me feel smart to point out what the name of every dinosaur was, as well as the sculptural mistakes.

Originally built in 1963, Prehistoric Forest was basically a train tour through 8 acres of plaster cast dinosaurs, dodo birds and saber toothed tigers. And, or course, there was a gift shop.
I was probably 4 or 5 when I made my first- and only- visit to the Forest, well after its heyday. I remember the dinosaurs' paint peeling, overgrown bushes, and a general air of tackiness. But I loved it anyway.

Let's take a look-see at how far the park has fallen from grace:

This is a wooly mammoth at Prehistoric Forest, circa 1970 something. Note the oh-so-realistic chain link fence. Overall, however, he's looking pretty good.

The same wooly mammoth, 30-ish years later. I believe this was taken after the park closing, which may account for some of the wear and tear; but you can't see evidence of any of the fancy landscaping in this photo, or even the other dinosaur.

Such a shame.

Ergh.

It's sunny and 82 degrees outside, and i'm sitting indoors doing homework.

What is this world coming to?

P.S. I GOT ROSENTHAL SUNGLASSES! they are blue.

Book review: Birthmarked by Caragh M. O'Brien

Grarrrrrrrgh.

You know what the problem is with reading books?
If they're good, I start turning them into a movie in my head.
I think about transitions, camera angles, costumes...
and I cast people in roles.
I usually do this after finishing a book, but in the case of Birthmarked, it was too good not to start blocking as I was finishing.
So guess who I cast as Sgt. Grey?
That's right! Darren Criss! Good job.

And guess what happens to Sgt. Grey?

***** SPOILER ********
HE GOES AND FREAKING DIES!
(or is, at least, unconscious and captured.)

**********************

Wah.

Oh noes.

I just got my hair cut.
I don't like it.
It's just short enough that it doesn't go behind my ears, but to long to be corralled with a headband.
There's some freaky layering going on too.
Ew.
I can't put it back in a bun either!
What am I supposed to do?

Monday, May 17, 2010

This is not going to end well.

It's only been 2 days, and i'm already going through AVPS withdrawl.
How am I supposed to make it all the way to JULY?!?!?
*eye twitches* 60 days of pain and torture. TORTURE, I TELL YOU!
I'm already forgetting the words to the songs.

When the crypt doors creak and the tombstones quake...

Ghosts come out for a swinging wake!
Happy haunts materialize,
start to shriek and harmonize!
Grim grinning ghosts come out to socializeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

Welcome, foolish mortals, to the...

Naw, I won't take you through the whole spiel.
So!
I am a big Haunted Mansion fan, despite the fact that it gives me the willies (see photo).


(click the picture for a less distorted view)

In other words, whenever I get the willies, I become so utterly convinced I am being stalked by a robber/murderer/inanimate object/ghost that I will completely flip out and try to flee.

Fortunately, I tend to behave myself whilst enclosed in a Doom Buggy.



Mooing softly to myself seems to help.

Anyways.

Don't let my mooing fool you. The Haunted Mansion is a really, really, really good ride. With really, really really nice theming. And a really, really, really creepy resident...

THE HATBOX GHOST! *Cues lightning and thunder*

Yeah, he's a creepy old dude. I first discovered him while I was researching for a 7th grade research project on Imagineering.

Needless to say, I did not get much sleep that night.



Now, though, i'm pretty much cool with it. He has a pretty interesting history, actually. Here's a wikipedia article (with a nifty picture):

Here.

Ha! See? Now you've got the willies, too.

Have a nice day.

My life is now complete.

Chocolate covered raisins? ... check.
(i'm eating them. They're not in the video.)

One of the most epic Disney songs ever? ... check.

Darren Criss? ... check.



I'm a happy camper.

Monday, April 26, 2010

I should probably post something, so here goes...

I like hula hooping.
No, really!
It's one of my favorite things to do.
I can go for a really long time.
My record is 35 minutes, but I can probably go longer.
It makes me feel happy.
...
I should probably go out for a run later.
I'm not a slow runner, but I tire quickly.
Which is one of the reasons why I don't like to play mid in field hockey.
On that subject...
I LOOOOOOOOOVVEEEEE PHINEASSSSSSSSSSSS.
(that's my field hockey stick.)
He's getting all chipped, though.
It makes me sad.
And I can't tape the bottom because there are these stupid dents in the back that are supposed to help with hits or something.
curse you, stupid dents!

Boy, i'm feeling good today, Mikey!

... today's a good day.

Everybody liked my script. ( I think )
I didn't fall down the stairs.
I only missed one question on all of my DRQs.
We're having asparagus for dinner.
(My favorite vegetable!
ASPARAGUS NOM NOM NOM)
I get to open birthday presents a day early!
The sun is out.
I danced around the kitchen with my sister.
I ate a Peanut Butter Patty.

Life is good.


Keep smilin'!

Cool movie quotes.

Alvin and the Chipmunks: the Squeakuel--------------------

Dr. Rubin: You threatened to climb inside them and build a nest.
Simon: Umm... that was out of line. I'm not even sure that's physically possible.

Theodore: [upon Dave asking where Aunt Jackie is] She's practicing her pole dancing.

Alvin: Don't make me kiss you. I will.
Simon: err...
Alvin: Choo choo! Make out train is leaving the station!

Alvin and the Chipmunks-------------------------------------

Simon: We're talking chipmunks, Dave. We can get out of a cat carrier. Not even hard to do.

Simon: We put a few toaster waffles aside for winter.
Alvin: And we're not sharing!

The Chipmunk Adventure-------------------------------------

Dave: Now let's see... shirts, pants, overcoat, socks... am I forgetting anything?
Alvin: Me!
Dave: Alvin, we've been over this a million times!
Alvin: Please, Dave! I need a little culture in my life! The Eiffel Tower, the Sixteen Chapel, the Louvre in Rome!
Simon: The Louvre is in Paris, Alvin.
Alvin: You see? I don't even know where the Louvre is!

Simon: I can't believe you decieved Miss Miller for a package of Tutti Frutti, Theodore.
Theodore: Two packages!

Simon: Alvin, land the balloon by the fountain.
[the balloon lands in a tree]
Simon: Like I said, "in the tree."

Simon always gets the best lines.

Lilo and Stitch-----------------------------------------

Lilo: I'm sorry I bit you... and pulled your hair... and punched you in the face...

Lilo: [creating voodoo dolls of her playmates] My friends need to be punished.

Mr. Cobra Bubbles: Thus far, you have been adrift in the sheltered harbor of my patience.

Pleakley: Oh great! He's loose!
Jumba: His destructive programming is taking effect. He will be irresistibly drawn to large cities, where he will back up sewers, reverse street signs, and steal everyone's left shoe.

Stitch: Aloha!
Gantu: Ah! You're vile; you're foul; you're flawed!
Stitch: Also cute and fluffy!

Nani: [talking on the phone] I think it might be a koala... an *evil* koala. I can't even pet it! It keeps *staring* at me, like it's gonna eat me!

Mr. Cobra Bubbles: Let me illuminate to you the precarious situation i which you have found yourself. I am the one they call when things go wrong, and things have indeed gone wrong.

Lilo: You rotten sister, your butt is crushing me! Why do you act so wierd?

Lilo: Did you lose your job because of Stitch and me?
Nani: Nah. The manager's a vampire. He wanted me to join his legion of the undead.
Lilo: I knew it!

Lilo: Don't worry. She likes your butt and fancy hair. I know. I read her diary.

Rescue lady: You have to think of a name for him.
Lilo: His name is... ”Stitch."
Rescue lady: But that's not a real name...
[Nani gesturing "NO"]
Rescue lady: in... Iceland. But here it's a good name! "Stitch" it is.


Nani: You are so finished when I get in there! I'm gonna stuff you in the blender, push "puree," then bake you into a pie and feed it to the social worker! And when he says, "Mmmm, this is great, what's your secret?" I'm gonna say...
[Mr. Bubbles hooks his foot around hers and pulls her away from the dog-door]
Nani: ...Love... and... nurturing...

Pleakley: Help! I don't like the ocean! Ahh! Oh, look, a friendly little dolphin. They helped sailors during the war... It's a shark! It's a shark and it ain't friendly! Looks like a dolphin... Tricky fish! Tricky fish! Octopus, will you please help me? An octo... the octopus is worse than the shark! I hate this planet!

Lilo: Stitch is troubled. He needs desserts!

A brief rant (or why i'm fed up with how to draw books)

Gah.

Art class gets me so perturbed sometimes.
I hate it when people come in and are all like,
"Hey! Look! I can draw (insert anime character here)!",
and draw it all over everything in sight,
regardless of the fact
that they only know two poses
and the eyes of the figure are pointing in two different directions.
don't look at the eyes, kids!
They'll give you nightmares!


It's not talent if you only learn how to draw using how to draw books;
it's called
CHEATING.
Now, I will admit
i've used my fair share of how to draw books,
but only as references.
No copying straight out of the book for me!
No sir!
Besides, the world gets awfully boring
if you can only doodle 1 character in 1 pose.
I respect you more if you've never opened a how to draw book and are a horrible drawer
than if you just copy out of the book well.
THAT'S WHAT COPIERS ARE FOR.
My drawing process is something like this:

1) locate a few reference pictures of the subject.
2) practice drawing the subject in the poses shown (NO TRACING).
3) do a rough sketch of the subject in the desired pose (again, NO TRACING).
4) use a lightbox to transfer (okay, trace) the drawing onto a clean sheet and add color.

This is the process if you use a how to draw book:

1) look at the perfect, finished drawing of your subject, colored and shaded in Photoshop.
2) squint at the first step.
3) attempt to match the first step exactly.
4) get frustrated and squint at the first step again.
5) repeat steps 2-4 until you are somewhat satisfied, then continue on to step 2.

I'm assuming if you draw the SAME FREAKING THING 50 times a day, it will eventually turn out looking something like the professional drawing on the page.

But not really.

:)

Buddy tape time!

gah!
my fingers have been taped together, so it is hard to type or play piano.

.

yep, that's pretty much my life at the moment.

Oh, I almost forgot...

MICHELLE LONDON IS STILL MY HOMEGIRL!

Thursday, April 8, 2010

WICKED on tour... a review.

well.

MICHELLE LONDON IS OFFICIALLY MY NEW HOMEGIRL.
(besides all of you, that is.)

so! Review time!
....
The auditorium was, to be honest, not quite up to the standard I had expected. The house didn't open until almost 15 minutes before curtain, the acoustics were off, and you could hear the rain pounding on the roof during quiet moments.
(speaking of which, what the heck happened to sunshine and 80 degrees? There was SNOW on my roof this morning.)

besides that, however, the show was fabulous.

Vicki Noon as Elphaba was good casting, though there were times when she stepped out of character, and was like, "SQUEE! I've finally been promoted from standby!". She has some seriously INSANE pipes, however. She handled the more lighthearted side of Elphaba well, which made the character more fun, as opposed to a Carmen Cusack type (who was still cool!), who placed more emphasis on the "woe is me/ sarcasm" side of Elphie.

That was a long sentence.

Natalie Daradich a lovely G(a)linda, though you could tell she'd been trolling YouTube, watching other actresses' performances. She did add several unique things to the character, though including some "magical wiggling" (AKA grinding with Elphie during "Popular". Which was hilarious.)

Chris Peluso as Fiyero... meh. He looked to much like Jim Carrey to pull off the whole swankified hunk thing, in my opinion. Plus his hair was weird. He did some nice work during the second act, though.

Everyone else was great, except

MICHELLE LONDON!
She was super cool!
And super awesome!
(she played Nessa.)
I has a picture with her!
I TOUCHED HER COSTUME!
IT WAS SHINY AND STUFF!

I was sorely tempted to rip her sparkly shoes off, cackle, and run away.

But, alas, I did not.


..............
So, if you get a chance to see Wicked while it's nearby, GO!
I WAS CLOSE ENOUGH TO MICHELLE LONDON TO SPIT ON HER!
( I didn't! Don't worry!)

iTunes is getting a roundhouse kick to the face.

and so is Blu Ray.
and so is the library, for not having Ghostbusters OR Who Framed Rodger Rabbit OR the first Back to the Future on DVD.
...
as you may have guessed, i'm prepping my iPod at the moment for a 3 hour trek to visit my lovely cousins.
...
yeah, it's cool.

MUST FINISH HARRY POTTER SCRIPT!

Are you a deviant?

Hello there.
Just inserting another plug here for my DeviantArt page...

Drawings ahoy!

it's a bit bland and lifeless at the moment, but i'm working on some Haunted Mansion paintings that should liven things up a bit.

(get it? Liven? Dead? HAHAHAHAHA)

So! Anyway! Friend me, follow me, leave me a comment!

Much love,

Something's broken, and something's blue.

the sky is blue.
IT IS SUCH A BEAUTIFUL DAY AND I AM STUCK INSIDE!
aargh!
...
So.
I've been having an interesting third trimester.
I have classes with friends- which is good-
but I also have to juggle friends and different groups.
So, i'd just like to say i'm sorry.
(you know who you are.)
I just have trouble with telling people "no" sometimes...
actually, all of the time.
but that's no excuse.
So. Yeah.

Most (well, probably all) of you know by now that my finger has been broken for a week.
It's a gigantic pain, but at least all I have is a splint and not a cast.
So I can still sort of play percussion in class with that hand.
.
.
.
One of these days, when I have time to burn, i'll write down everything I have to share about percussion and drumline.
That day, however, is not today...

Keep moving forward!

QUOTE OF THE DAY.

"Why would you jump out of a perfectly functioning plane? You would be risking your life by hoping that your parachute - which may or may not work - deploys when you pull the string. A much safer option would be staying on the plane, which you know is functioning properly because you are not plummeting to your doom."

Hanging in there...

*sighs*
i'm having a crap type of day.
You don't want to hear about that, though, do you?
Let's talk about happy things instead, like ponies.

well, not that pony specifically.
speaking of toy ponies... i'm excited for Toy Story 3.

(okay, that was a lousy transition, but I had to think of something!)

Jessie has always been one of my favorite Disney/Pixar characters.
I just rewatched Toy Story 2, and she has the hyperness equivalent of feeding a squirrel a Pop Tart.

If there's a midnight showing, i'm THERE!

By the way, in case you were wondering, my favorite Disney/Pixar characters are (in no particular order):

Figment (from Journey into Imagination)
Kevin (from UP)
Jessie
Lilo & Stitch
Jack Sparrow
Kida (from Atlantis)
Prince Naveen (from Princess and the Frog)
WALL.E

Today is a good day, luvs.

I am happy.
Wind Ensemble auditions are over.
I got a 101% on my Bio test for the second time in a row.
It was 54 degrees and sunny.
...
Actually, it's somewhat ironic how much I obsess over grades,
seeing as how all i really want to do
is be a storyboard artist at an animation studio.
More specifically,
i'd like to steal Bob Petersen's job.

(You have been warned, Bob Petersen. Beware.
I am coming for you.)

---------
CalArts is like the Holy Grail of animation schools.
A degree in Character Animation from there is like
having a ginormous shiny gold star sticker and a $500 dollar bill on your resume.
But it's so far away...
(only 24 hours driving time, though, kiddies! No worries! I'll come back to visit!)
...
that is, if I get in.
Out of a pool of 2,000 applicants, they take 200.

Sometimes less.

Well, isn't that just a great way to put a damper on the day?
At least I have art next trimester.
SQUEE!

Life is good.

... but next year...
probably not.
I've signed up for some hard classes and am opting out of a trimester of band *sniffle*.
But i'll be in Drawing and Painting 1 instead.
Which totally is going to be my favoritest class ever, I can tell.

Ah, CalArts, why are you so elusive?
My life drawing sucks right now.
Nobody gives a crap if you can draw manga well in your college portfolio.
I'd better pick up the slack if I ever want to get to Valencia.
.
.
.
I hope they allow mini fridges in the dorm rooms.
As you all know, i'm a milkaholic.
A glass at breakfast, 2 cartons at lunch, a glass after school, 3 or 4 glasses at dinner, a glass or 2 before bed...

yeah.

that's my rant of the day. Your thoughts?

Time Machine: Sagwa, Big Comfy Couch, and Land before Time

If you haven't seen Sagwa, I feel bad for you.

The offical tagline is "Sagwa: the Chinese Siamese Cat."
'Splain it to me, Lucy.

Long story short, Sagwa (the Chinese Siamese cat) and her family are the official writers for the emperor. Who is fat. And apparently can't write.
.
.
.
You know what? Let's just move on.
Next up is Big Comfy Couch!


this was my absolute favorite show when I was a kid. I even had a Molly doll (which I just dug out of the basement, for old times' sake.)

It always perturbed me that I couldn't do the clock rug stretch.

And, finally...



ta da! The Land Before Time!
I abused this video when I was little. Cera (the yellow one) was my imaginary friend.

This was my favorite song:
Peaceful Valley (from Land Before Time 2)
Well, it's still a good song.

Did I jog any memories?

snOwMG!

Yeah.
I didn't think we got that much snow when I woke up this morning,
but it's been snowing all day and hasn't let up.
My sister and I have been playing on her old Webkinz account all morning.

Me: SparklePrincess won't play air hockey with you!
My Sister: Loser!

My Sister: Friend her. Then she'll play with me! MWAHAHA!

so. How's your snow day going?

tweet! tweet!

.
.
.
I was going to write a post about Twitter, but I forgot what I was going to say.
.
.
Hang on just a sec...
.
.
.
aha! found it!

The news talks about Twitter like it's the root of all evil/teenage angst/global warming.
Here's a newsflash, guys:
the only people who use twitter are adults!
How may high schoolers do you know with a Twitter?
I'll wait while you count.
.
.
.
Zero, huh?
No way!
Me too!
What an interesting little kawinky-dink we have here!

Still not convinced?
Let's look at who gets in trouble using Twitter.

- politicians
- celebrities
- bank robbers who tweet about robbing a bank
- jurors with a gag order tweeting about the trial

noticing a theme here?
all seemingly responsible adults.
*shakes head*
I can only hope i'm more sensitive to the fact that ANYONE CAN READ YOUR POSTS ONLINE.

.
.
Speaking of which...

hello, random stranger who has stumbled upon my blog!
perhaps you were searching for a) something exciting to read, or you thought b) this was a good source for your 5 page report due Monday, or you're c) just a creeper from my school who is hoping that you can smell me through the monitor.

( if you're c, please, GO AWAY!)
(right now I smell like green tea, for all my creeper friends out there.)
( on second thought, I probably shouldn't be encouraging these disturbing habits. forget I said that.)

don't be a stranger! Leave a comment!

On Location: @ the library

* inhales deeply *

I love the library.
It smells like books.
you know what one of my favorite smells in the world is?
the smell of gasoline.
( i'm not crazy! i promise! )
it might just be because I love flying,
and when I fly charter,
we always have to wait outside while they refuel.
I guess gasoline smells like adventure.

.
.
.

all the gasoline has obviously gone to my head.

my other favorite smell is the smell of vanilla and brown sugar.
Luckily, they sell it by the gallon at Bath and Body Works.
I'll admit it: i'm a Bath and Body Worksaholic.
they just have too many good sales!
it doesn't help that I got nearly $50 dollars in giftcards to go there for Christmas, either.

I also like the smell of cucumber in the summer.
it feels weird smelling like a cucumber in the winter.
quite frankly, it's weird to smell like a cucumber any time of the year.
Whose idea was it to make body lotion smell like food, anyway?
Now, cookies and stuff, I can understand... but cucumbers? and bananas?

I think I would go crazy if I smelled like a banana.

Curse you, newfangled technology!

*sighs*
the color changer on Blogger isn't working.
In other words, i'm stuck with this pukey green background for now.

EDIT: it works now.

...

I saw Percy Jackson the other day.
It was pretty good.
Most elements were faithful to the book, EDIT: Lies! I had not read the book in years, so my memory was a bit bejumbled. The movie was WRONG! ALL WRONG! SO HORRIBLY, MIND NUMBINGLY, HILARIOUSLY WRONG! except everyone was older. And they all drove (not well, but that's beside the point). And instead of being merely sucked in by the video games at the Lotus Casino, they got drugged.

Which was pretty funny, actually.

Yeah. I'm a cheater.

I have a little secret to share.
I STOLE THIS BLOG!
Okay, not really.
Sort of.
I stole the post style from my friend's blog.
Because it's cool.
((think of it as payback for ripping off my notebook cover in 4th grade.))
You can find hers here... over here!

Anyways, about me...

i'm a girl.
i wear glasses.
i have brown hair that is rather shaggy at the moment. ( i need a haircut.)
i am short.
i am not capitalizing the i's because they look cooler lower case.
i'm hoping to go to CalArts and get a BFA in Character Animation, but we'll see...

here's my DeviantArt. here
not much to see at the moment...

i'm planning on posting here (almost) every day.
Some days (like today) i'll have a bajillion posts.
some days might be long rants.
others, just pictures.

care to join me on my adventure?
