A year ago, I was sick.
I was scared, crying, terrified, in pain. I felt I was going nowhere and had nothing going for me. I was lost.


Today, I was told how amazing my work is, how awesome I am and what an asset I've become to the major company I work for. I'm a boss bitch at work, I have a small but growing business that is MINE and satisfying and creative.


How things have changed.
:)

This is for me, but also for you, Anjelica.
Things do change. Happy birthday my love.

I've thought very hard about how to really comment or criticize Disney films and ultimately think it's very hard to find a set of rules, or a guideline that could be helpful.
But I do believe, like Roy once said that there are 3 things that are pivotal to good Disney films. #1. Great story, #2. Great songs. But third and most importantly, remarkable characters.
So in thinking of a formula that would be sort of easy to follow, I think these are things that are definitely worth noting:

.The Characters. Not just in their personalities and how they are presented to the audience, but also in how they are designed and how much detail they have.
.The Music. Like Howard Ashman said, for a film to be Disney canon, its music has to be very memorable, very special and quite particular. I should say in advance that I think this isn't the case for every Disney film, but music will nevertheless be a special part of what I'll want to look for.
.The Design. Each of these films have a very particular visual approach. And I think studying the visual design is also a very specific way to outline the objectives and the ideas of the company at a certain time.
.The Digital Restoration. Where applicable, I will address the restorations, because Disney has done a rather impeccable job with their digital transfers and their restorations. Not every company is making their films look brand new and so vibrant and stunning.
.Overall impressions on the themes and the story. I'm not sure if I will try to rate them, but I will try to gather a general perception of the film and try to make a simple interpretation of it.


THAT BEING SAID:


The fairest of them allCollapse )

TL;DR sorry.

Sylwia poked me today and I haven't updated in a long time so she was right.

She's also tempted me and convinced me that I should do a DisneyWatch 2011. In which I will watch EVERY single Disney animated film and review it.

This is appropriate because my Disney nerdiness has reached shameless levels, and I could probably use a place and a way to use as an outlet. You think you've seen Disney nerdiness, and then I'll geek out about a certain period, or a specific animator and it's just... off the charts.
Ridiculous really.
Also, this may or may not have to do with the fact that 2 months ago I got an HDTV and that for my birthday this month, my mom got me 4 Disney blurays. And I have been geeking out a lot. Especially because they are SO FULL of special features


Anyway, I had kinda meant to do that Disney watch thing anyway, with the bf. Except then (NEWS FLASH BTW) I broke up with him, and well lol yeah.
If you are surprised, don't be. Sometimes, I wonder if I'm at all the relationship type. If I'm just inconstant, or if I'm just too demanding. If I just get bored too easily. Or if I'm just completely unable to seriously commit to someone.
IDK IDK
Whatever the reason, well I'm single again.


Let's see what else.
OOOOOOOOOOH
I AM THE PREFECT OF THE NOBLE HOUSE OF RAVENCLAW FOR THIS TERM!
I love my claws, they are so precious and stunning and we will conquer the House Cup and we will pwn and pillage and raid. It will be flawless. Also my co-prefect is also flaw free so that won't be too hard :)

ABOUT TELEVISION THAT I WATCH:
Glee is ridiculous, I hated a lot of it lately except for the Jesse St James and the Kurt and the Blaine in it.
Grey's Anatomy was underwhelming and I'm pissed off about it.
COMMUNITY IS A FLAW FREE SHOW AND IT DESERVES ALL THE AWARDS.

AND FINALLY:

FRINGE IS THE MOST BRILLIANT, STUNNING, EXTRAORDINARY, BEAUTIFUL, SMART, CLEVER SHOW ON TELEVISION.
#ALLTHEAWARDS


I also got into White Collar and can Season 3 start rn pls?

ONE MORE THING:
LADY GAGA IS MY MOTHER MONSTER AND BORN THIS WAY IS THE ALBUM OF THE DECADE.
It is stunning, she is amazing, I can't get enough of it. It's inspiring and fantastic and revolutionary. And it's such a great, different, sound. The production is just so extraordinary. And this is without mentioning the lyrics which are so thoughtful and just so inspired and I will listen to this album for years and love it forever.


OK. THAT IS ALL.
I will start writing about Snow White tonight or tomorrow. Feel free to skip all my Disney ramblings if you want. BUT I WILL POST CUTE PICTURES SO THAT YOU FEEL TEMPTED. OK? TY.


ALSO WELCOME SYLWIA AND DENISE WHO I JUST FRIENDED.

I think I've always loved films. Since I can remember, really.

And I've aaaalways loved award season. It's my jam. It's the best time ever to be a film nerd. Film nerding comes so easy during Award Season, and it's everywhere, so everyone enables you lol. Well, then I went to art school and I wouldn't say the way I look at film changed, but the way I analyze it did. So idk, I've become very strongly opinionated about film. I can't help it. I can't help myself.

And btw, that would go on to be why I haven't really made any reviewing this year of any films. Because I've had very strong opinions about some of the things that fandom in general has been collectively fapping about so lol I rather keep my unpopular opinions behind closed doors. But oh god, it's award season and I am feeling enabled. Everywhere.

Idk, maybe I should just make a ranking of the nominated films and talk some bits about them. But lmao idek who would read that.


Anyway, I'm vidding Fringe. Or trying to but getting wrapped up in a ton of other stuff. Will get there. ALSO NEW FRINGE TONIGHT YESSSSSSS! FUCK YES! LUV U FRINGE ALSO DID YOU PEOPLE SEE FRINGE'S NUMBERS LAST WEEK? FUCK YES! KEEP IT UP FRINGE I WILL BE PRAYING FOR YOU OMG I NEED FRINGE GIFS H/O


FRINGE PRAYER CIRCLE PLS

S'up 2011?

Since my last post, my holiday blues kinda wore off. I did host a Christmas eve dinner, had fun on Christmas day, went to the beach for like 3 days, and then last night had an okay time, I guess. And lots of wine.

I won't lie, things could be way better. But hfc they can't but get better from here on, yk? That's kinda my attitude for 2011: from here, I can only go forwards. And it's funny cause I think for the first time in a loooooong time, that's a resolution that I am completely comfortable with. I didn't even shed any tears last night. Not even after I got it on with the wine. Idk, things _will_ get better because I honestly can't see them getting any worse. Things will look up, I have to believe it.

So yeah.

Well also, I wrapped up my 2010 Scrapbook and I closed the year at 163 movies which sounds pretty awesome for my 2011 goal of 200.
I find that making a scrapbook gives me a very accurate sense of things tbh. I see very clearly where I've been through the year and idk, it's comforting. To know that I collected some of these moments and things and that they won't disappear away into the internet. Or something.
In short, there is A LOT of Lost, jjverse, Oceanaldi, Fringe, Disney and then towards the end some Ravenclaw :)

After I post this, I'll do some work on my 2011 with some banners and stuff and then I'll be on it one more time. Hopefully, it'll be just as successful.

Okay I lie, after I post this, I will go update on DisneyVerse because the holidays and my beach trip made me neglect it omg how shameful.


So idk, I might have to knock on wood as I say this, but I just wanted to write this entry to let it be on record that i feel positive about 2011. Things will look up, really.

One of them would be a Safari extension that tells you when a website has been updated, like the way tumblr and twitter work. So I could use it on Oceanaldi and on FLOURISH & BLOTTS WHEN I AM WAITING FOR THE ACTIVITY SWEEP TO BE POSTED SO I CAN HAVE A SHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOP

Yk, not that my catalogue is finished but I _really_ want this lol kaela are you lol'ing irl now? I bet you are.

I would probably be too much on the internethappy with a lj extension for Safari, but Mo promised to try that for me. If she does I may have to fly to France and hug her and make her foods or something. Idk.



Also my niece is OBSESSED with a sequence on a Disney movie but I cannot divulge what it is because it's a spoiler alert for the DisneyVerse Guess the Song challenge lololol


Yeah idk what this post is.

I've realized I have a chronic problem: Sometimes I mean to reply to a comment or an entry. But I don't. And then I kinda like don't realize I didn't comment and then (and by then I mean anywhere from a day to a week later) I realize "oh uh"
#idk #shortattentionspan

So yeah, if I ever like don't reply to you, there is a 65% chance that in my head I think I did
#thisismylife

Yk, I could use this opportunity rn to talk about Fringe last night but if I do I will be heartbroken all over again and oh god MY POOR OLIVE NO WHY OMG :'( OLIVIA ILU :(
#iluolive

ALTHOUGH THIS JUST IN:
Last night I was watching 117 Bad Dreams with Anj and my sister came over and sat with me and she was like omg omg and all into it and then she was like omg that was so cool and now she's like uhm so i uhm... wanna watch fringe now.

Also 2 things:
1. This weekend I will do a minor friends cut. I'll only cut people who have cut me before or who are filtering me out, cause tbh yk what's the point. So if you get a notif and come back and read this: Hi, don't use filters as a less passive aggressive way of friends cutting.
