Holy Shit, livejournal, you're still alive. Do people use you anymore? Are you breathing?  I think I might update you more. I kinda miss blogging. Tweeting is nice, I guess, but sometimes, I have more to say. Like right now. But OH MY GOD, xanga. Remember that shit? Oh man, I kinda regret deleting my first xanga. So many memories deleted. Gone forever. Sigh. I still miss the pictures on my old computer in high school. That fucker just died while I wasn't even using it. Anyways. 

I think I have some concerts to update on my profile. That is one thing I'd miss if my account was deleted. I should probably back that up. 


I don't want to go to work tomorrow, I should probably bake something to bring to Jesse's on Friday. I doubt his shirt is going to get here in time. Real pity.

[Roy enters]

Moss: The jacket!

Jen: Are you all right Roy?

Moss: Is it the jacket? Because it should be.

 

---

Roy: Her parents died in a fire.

Jen: Oh god that’s terrible.

Roy: Yeah, yeah, it was a fire. At Sea Parks.

Moss: …Sea Parks.

Roy: Yeah…

Jen: But the

Roy: With the whales and everything.

Jen: Well okay.

Moss: Sea Parks.

Roy: Yeah.

Moss: Huh.

---

Jen: Lots of water everywhere.

Roy: Yeah! I would imagine the whales need a lot of water. I don’t think you can have whales in a place without a huge amount of water.

Jen: That just seems like a strange place to go on fire.

Roy: It’s a VERY weird place to go on fire! A fire! AT A SEA PARKS!? It’s the weirdest thing I’ve ever heard! Well maybe… maybe if there were plastic seats? Maybe they could go on fire…

Moss: They don’t have plastic seats at Sea Parks.

Roy: How do you know?

Moss: Roy, when I was on holiday I LIVED in Sea Parks! It’s the funnest, wettest, most splish-splashy place in the world!

Roy: Okay, did you go to the sea lion show?

Moss: 3 times a day for 2 weeks!

Roy: And did they have plastic seats?

Moss: No, it’s all stone steps.

Roy: Then what went on fire!?! I checked wikipedia, there is no mention of a fire at any Sea Parks.

The Academy Awards

Share
Alright, so the Oscars nominations were announced this morning. And of course, there's already some hate buzz around it.

BEST PICTURE:
Avatar 
The Blind Side
District 9
An Education
The Hurt Locker
Inglourious Basterds

Precious: Based on the Novel “Push” by Sapphire
A Serious Man
Up
Up in the Air

*strikethrough is what i've seen
Not too much surprise in the Best category. There was a lot of push for Up for this category and there wasn't really any doubt it wouldn't get nominated. I feel there's a good chance that Avatar will take the award but you never know. There's a ton of buzz for Hurt Locker and Basterds as well. It'll be shocking if it's not one of those 3 for the winner. Blind Side, District 9, Serious Man, Up In the Air are all definitely not going to win. I feel it in my bones.

DIRECTING:
Kathryn Bigelow - The Hurt Locker
James Cameron - Avatar
Lee Daniels - Precious: Based on the Novel “Push” by Sapphire
Jason Reitman - Up in the Air
Quentin Tarantino - Inglourious Basterds

It would be no surprise at all if James Cameron went home for an oscar in this category. Avatar was in production forever and he did a lot of great things in achievements. The category after all is "Achievements in Directing" so it wouldn't be so surprising. Did Danny Boyle win last year for Slumdog? I don't remember. Bigelow has a ton of buzz and support as well as Tarantino. I don't see Daniels taking the award nor Reitman. Neither did anything truly spectacular.

ACTOR IN A LEADING ROLE:
Jeff Bridges - Crazy Heart
George Clooney - Up in the Air
Colin Firth - A Single Man
Morgan Freeman - Invictus
Jeremy Renner - The Hurt Locker

I have not seen Crazy Heart, A Single Man or Invictus. All I know is that there is huge buzz for Jeff Bridges and for Colin Firth. It  would be a complete upset if Clooney won since he really didn't act in Up in the Air. I don't remember who Jeremy Renner was in Hurt Locker since the movie for me was very unmemorable.

ACTRESS IN A LEADING ROLE:
Sandra Bullock - The Blind Side
Helen Mirren - The Last Station
Carey Mulligan - An Education
Gabourey Sidibe - Precious: Based on the Novel “Push” by Sapphire
Meryl Streep - Julie & Julia

The Actress categories really haven't been important to me in past years. I'm incredibly happy that Gabourney Sibide has been nominated since Precious was such a beautiful piece of film making. I did not like Julie & Julia and certainly don't feel that Meryl Streep was that great. I have not seen The Blind Side, Last Station or An Education so I'm lacking in knowledge of this category which is normal for me.

ACTOR IN A SUPPORTING ROLE:
Matt Damon - Invictus
Woody Harrelson - The Messenger
Christopher Plummer - The Last Station
Stanley Tucci - The Lovely Bones
Christoph Waltz - Inglourious Basterds

Again, I have not seen Invictus, The Messenger, Last Station, or the Lovely Bones. All I do know is that Christoph Waltz was spectacular in Inglourious Basterds and there is a huge buzz for him winning like he did at the Golden Globes.

ACTRESS IN A SUPPORTING ROLE:
Penelope Cruz - Nine
Vera Farmiga - Up in the Air
Maggie Gyllenhaal - Crazy Heart
Anna Kendrick - Up in the Air
Mo’Nique - Precious: Based on the Novel “Push” by Sapphire

I'm glad to see Mo'Nique nominated for her performance in Precious since she was truly a spectacular actress in the film. Anna Kendrick, I feel, had a better performance than Vera Farmiga in Up in the Air. I have not seen Crazy Heart nor Nine.

ADAPTED SCREENPLAY:
Neill Blomkamp and - District 9
Nick Hornby - An Education
Jesse Armstrong, Simon Blackwell, Armando Iannucci and Tony Roche - In the Loop
Geoffrey Fletcher - Precious: Based on the Novel “Push” by Sapphire
Jason Reitman and Sheldon Turner - Up in the Air

I feel like not many people understand or know why District 9 is in this category instead of Original Screenplay. It's because Neill Blomkamp did a short film and then expanded it into District 9. I would love to see District 9  win but it won't happy. I'll just be happy with seeing it nominated. The oscar will probably go to Jason Reitman or Geoffrey Fletcher. I have not seen In The Loop or An Education.

ORIGINAL SCREENPLAY:
Mark Boal - The Hurt Locker
Quentin Tarantino - Inglourious Basterds
Oren Moverman and - The Messenger
Joel and Ethan Coen - A Serious Man
Pete Docter and Bob Peterson - Up

This category is difficult to guess who will win. People love Hurt Locker (me not being one of them - many I should watch it again). People love Inglourious Basterds (me totally being one of them) and people really loved Up. The Messenger and A Serious Man, I feel, don't have a big chance over the other three. This category might be a huge upset to a lot of people. I'm excited to see who wins.

ANIMATED FEATURE FILM:
Coraline
Fantastic Mr. Fox
The Princess and the Frog
The Secret of the Kells
Up

Can we PLEASE stop talking about Coraline??? I'm tried of hearing about it because it wasn't that good. Secret of the Kells is something not many people have heard of and I'm surprised that Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs didn't make the nominees. I'm mostly positive that Up will take this category. Maybe Princess and the Frog but really all the buzz is towards Up.

BEST CINEMATOGRAPHY:
Maurio Fiore - Avatar
Bruno Delbonnel - Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince
Barry Ackroyd - The Hurt Locker
Robert Richardson - Inglourious Basterds
Christian Berger - The White Ribbon

I'm mostly positive that Avatar will win this category. Did you see the film? Yeah.

Update

So it's apparently the end of the semester and I'm not entirely sure where it went. It's motherfucking December. What the hell. I'm pretty sure Halloween JUST happened.

Classes have been shitty. Grades - pssh, terrible. I'm quite over it all. Spring registration just happened. And I realised I'm missing a class so I have to overload next fall with 18 units. Here's hoping that my classes are offered and I'm not royally fucked over by the state system. (so far so good) But here's my spring load:
POLS Politics of Latin America
SPAN Culturas de America Latina
GEOG Geopolitics
GLBL Senior Capstone Seminar

Pretteh shitteh. This schedule doesn't let me work at all basically. I really need furloughs to stop so I can go to work on Fridays. Otherwise I don't even know.

Fuck the next 2 weeks.

I went bowling last night with Hillel people. Won and lost to myself cause I was playing as two people. Sadly, I started the next game off with a spare and 2 strikes but we didn't get to finish. Boo.

Sewed little felt birds at work for 2 hours. They were adorable. I want to make some for myself.

Hillel dinner tonight. Paper writing this weekend. Balls.

Bought my ticket to Las Vegas for next week. Getting in at 11:30 on Thursday and leaving 6pm on Saturday. Strange but the cheapest at last minute. What I'm going to do is beyond me.
