Reminds me of this old Korean drama I used to watch as a kid, Stairway To Heaven I believe? Opera is so good. If you close your eyes and listen to this, it kind of feels like you're flying amidst of the vast vault of heaven.
So I realized I always have really great story ideas right before going to bed, on the toilet, during the middle of an AP Government lecture, while watching a movie, any many many other random times. Those ideas ironically never come when I actually take time off the day to think of some. Partly inspired by the Woody Allen doc when Woody said that he writes down all his ideas down on scraps of paper by hand, I decided to carry around a stack of hole punched index cards to write down whatever ideas come to my head at anytime. It's in my school backpack, purse, pocket, you name it. I never seem to have any coherent, holistic narrative ideas but I always have these great ideas for a specific scene or a really general one without any other details. Like, I thought of this pretty cool idea the other day, which I wrote down as, "What if the person you love is evil?". So like the main character would be a girl and she discovers that the one she loves is a Neo-Nazi or something like that. Or like a mother finds out that her son is a hit man. And this is more of a technical thing, but how cool would it be if I had a split screen of two people talking about the same person except capturing two completely different aspects and the person they're talking about is in the middle in front of the split screen reacting to what they're saying? I actually drew this one out, hah. Anyway this is what I spend most my spare time doing on top of djing on turntable.fm of course. I'm 50 points away from 3k points, woohoo!
1. Junior year when I dropped my pencil on the ground and bent over to pick it up, only to realize my math teacher was right beside me turning on the projector and hit my head right on his crotch.
2. Seventh grade when, during my final drama class performance, I accidentally said circumcise instead of circumscribe.
3. Today as a senior when my compliment card containing many foul words that began with the words "Hey bitch...." and ended with the words "Love, Nornor" directed to my friend but went to my AP English Lit teacher instead.....
SO YUP! I believed my face was biologically incapable of turning red until today pretty much. I blame it on the Be the Change people who didn't specify where to put down the friend's name and where to write down her teacher's name. How to face him tomorrow and for the rest of the semester......Hmm.
"GOD NORA YOU'RE SO HIGH MAINTENANCE. STOP COMPLAINING!!" But I truly am sore from last night's Holiday Hootenanny and it hurts to move.
It's not very obvious from the picture, but my ankle is bruised from people trampling me. I am a 5'3 Asian girl who just likes music, take the extreme mosh pit elsewhere!
Probably the best picture I took of the night, haha fail. I have had my phone for 3 months now and I still have no idea how to zoom on this thing.
Summary of the bands:
Delta Spirit - I do not remember whatsoever which music they played given that I was too concerned with my survival stuck in the midst of that insane crowd. I love American hipster music lovers, I do, but if appreciating music for them means having to kick, scrape, elbow, and step on innocent listeners, my tolerance will not go far.
Matt & Kim - Great stage persona. It was pretty funny when Kim took off her shirt and shook her booty on top of the crowd. But I wasn't too fond of their music and plus I've seen them already in 09.
Two Door Cinema Club - I thought it was cute how the guy kept saying "We are a band called Two Door Cinema Club in case you don't know us" throughout the show. I mean, there were nearly 2,000 of us there who paid 50 bucks to be there and cheer y'all on. We must know who you guys are, right?
My Morning Jacket - I don't know about you guys, but I am quite convinced that the lead singer of MMJ is Santa Claus. Had the best music of the four, but I was too tired by the time they played to give my all, unfortunately. The trippy stage set-up they had going on was cool and the lights were pretty crazy.
I snatched a MMJ owl shirt. Probably should have done that during or after the show since we lost our place in line buying our shirts. Although it was nice (and ridiculously hilarious) that we accidentally took the wrong turn and got into the venue without having to go through security or people checking the tickets....We (unknowingly) cut people that were in line since 2pm, hah. And on a different note....
This movie looks really, really strange in a good way and I want to watch it asap. It's got wonderful reviews and it is very rare that I want to watch a movie that is out in theater currently. I definitely got more confused after watching the trailer, but something about it seems so appealing. The music laid under is also weirdly good and the girl's odd face in the thumbnail picture is yelling out to me, "WATCH THIS, WATCH THIS".
Hah, I remember when I used to spend a ton of time making top/favorite _____ list stuff on tumblr. Good days....I think this picture above was for my 50 favorite people one. I think young Woody Allen is so adorable with his signature square glasses and fluffy hair. I guess he just has a way with attracting young Asian women. Maybe I will watch a Woody romcom tonight in honor of his birthday. Thank you for opening up the world of movies for me and just whipping out good film pretty much each year. Please live another 76 years.
