The supreme vice is shallowness. Whatever is realised is right.

There is no room for both passions (Love and Hate) in the same soul. They cannot live together in that fair carven house. Love is fed by the imagination, by which we become wiser than we know, better than we feel, and nobler than we are: by which we can see Life as a whole: by which, and by which alone, we can understand others in their real as in their ideal relations.

But Love does not traffic in a marketplace, nor use a huckster's scales. Its joy, like the joy of the intellect, is to feel itself alive. The aim of Love is to love: no more, no less.

To reject one's own experiences is to arrest one's own development. To deny one's own experiences is to put a lie into the lips of one's own Life. It is no less than a denial of the Soul.

Behind Joy and Laughter there may be a temperament, course, hard and callous. But behind Sorrow there is always Sorrow. Pain, unlike Pleasure, wears no mask.

Pleasure for the beautiful body, but Pain for the beautiful Soul.

Thanks to the ever omniscient Internet, I was able to finish the Ace Attorney movie that was released earlier this year. So here's some quick thoughts on it before I go to bed and thus forget everything.

Firstly I have to say I enjoyed it a lot! So much more than I expected to, considering this is an adaptations, and you know how adaptations in general suck. So yes, of course there were flaws, and events were changed switched around to accommodate the time and the medium, but with an eye to how Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney is an experience impossible to recreate anywhere else other than on the game console, I'd be quite lenient.

Right I feel like what I've done is just singing it praises now..................I'll remember/come up with some of the criticism when I've had a good night sleep and not under constant threat of my parents waking up and finding out about me staying up late, thus complicating things up. Damn it but I swear I'm 20.

And just like usual, I didn't actually feel the hype until I saw everyone posting resolutions and wishing others a Happy New Year. So here's another end-of-year entry for you.

For starters, let's begin with the "First sentence on every month in the last year" meme!

Woo. I'm actually a bit surprised because despite this year's introduction of me to Tumblr (which results in me almost moving entirely over there), I still managed to get at least one entry every month. That's good, isn't it? Because for the love of God without this journal it would have been entirely impossible for me to remember how I was a year ago. I tend to forget things like that.

A brief recap of 2011, which turned out to be not brief at all.Collapse )

So yeah. It's been a pretty good year in general. Although of course there are some rather disappointing downsides such as 1. I get a part-time job which I hate with all of my being and 2. I get the most boring ever semester I've ever had in my life, but I guess it did give me a chance to think about other things I want to do so it's not that bad in the end after all.


Good lord is it cold or I'm having cold sweat here? Why do I always have cold sweat when I'm talking about myself? That's something to redeem next year, definitely. Which leads us to...2012 resolutions!

Read more...Collapse )

Welp I think that's pretty it.

Right, so now it's 3 hours to midnight, better go listen to Sherlock's season 1 commentary then. Oh me and my priorities.

Happy New Year everyone!!!


P.S: This is probably a good time to say that I've moved to Dreamwidth. I was pretty pissed with LJ's latest update, and DW has a lot of features that are just begging me to take them. But I'll still be keeping two blogs, still be constantly checking LJ, it's just that instead of posting in LJ I'll be crossposting from over DW. So nothing's exactly changed actually, but yeah, just thought you might be interested.

Do I have to make one of these posts every time I'm finished with my semester? Because seriously the end of one is so exhilirating and relieving that I can't help but shout it out to the world.

But yeah anyway just finished the last of my assignments 2 hours ago. Technically I still have one exam about Multimedia Engineering but it's pretty easy and not until next Wednesday so I'll just relax for now, catch up on the stuffs I've been missing (God, 3 days worth of Tumblr? I'm gonna need coffee).

Oh God seriously I can't believe it's all over. Right now my head is still full of the background music of that flash assignment I just finished (all woooey and stuff, since it's a title sequence for a Film Noir thriller). So many things to do I really have no idea where to start...*___* Too bad it's already 10:30PM so there's not much that can be done, urgh maybe I'll just watch a movie and leave the Tumblr backtrack to tomorrow, one more day to the stack probably won't hurt...much...

(Because thinking about what I'm going to do is much better than about the dull assignment sitting in front of me)

- Watch Star Trek: First Contact (fjkdgldf I can't believe I haven't finished it yet)

- Watch Star Trek XI (Yes I finally got the nerves to do this.)

- Watch Sherlock Holmes (The RDJ one) (I figure I should at least finish it lest it rots on my HD)

- Manage to get through as much of the Sherlock Holmes stories as I can (who would've known my impromptu birthday wish years ago turns out to be so useful now?)

- Start on some of the projects I've been wanting to do but never found the time nor the inspiration to get down to work *bangs head against wall*

BUT OF COURSE I can't forget the 100000000+ fics I have pending in my bookmark now I mean I don't even bother to keep count of them anymore, they just grow and grow...I even have to resort to using Firefox (I usually use Chrome) so that I can get away from the temptations and start to do some work already dammit :|

For some reason I feel the fic-reading will take up all of my break and I won't be able to do anything else at all

Right. So remember my squees and screams about how I'm allowed to choose 1 movie and do a title sequence for it for one of my assignments?


Turns out because last semester too many people chose crap movies, this time the lecturer limited the genre to Film Noir. Which utterly and totally destroyed my plans of choosing Star Trek for the topic.


I'm seriously, really, despaired and shocked because this just came out of nowhere all of a sudden. I mean, I was so taken aback that I lost my ability to speak for awhile. (What's more annoying I'm only allowed to choose from the movies downloadable from archive.com. Oh it's not like I know that many Film Noir movies to begin with, but yeah.)


Well at least, luckily for me, I saw this one starring DeForest Kelley though, called "Fear in The Night" (YES FOR STAR TREK EVERYWHERE). The moment I saw it I just want to grab it immediately, but I don't want to dig my own graves so I'm gonna watch it first and pray to God no one will choose it before me (people in the same class aren't allowed to choose the same movie). Because a good film with brilliant acting doesn't mean it's easy to do a title sequence for :| And it's thriller so I don't know urgh.


Still I'm really disappointed that I didn't get to do Star Trek: TWOK (TWOK was my plan and I even had the scenes mapped out in my head and everything gfkdslgjdfgsd;gl dammit)

So I was like, scrolling through the list of names of designers from which I have to choose one as the topic of my assignment, and I was thinking of doing some well-known names that I haven't had the chance to research about before (aka a totally logical and beneficial decision)....


Until I see Katherine McCoy.


Now I don't know what to do.

(OhGodwhyisn'tthereaKolinahrritualinreallifesoIcangoandexpelmyemotionsintimeslikethese)

ETA: OH AND OH I TOTALLY FORGOT BUT I GET TO CHOOSE A RENOWN MOVIE TO DO A TITLE SEQUENCE (like an Opening) AND I'M SO TORN BETWEEN THE FIRST 6 STAR TREK MOVIES. SHOULD I DO THE SEARCH FOR SPOCK? ARE THEY "RENOWN" ENOUGH :|? Well they're renown in the US...does that count ;_;

And of course, there's also the fact that I probably should do something else away from my obsession, you know, to try out something new and all that jazz.....but then again....I can't decide.....

The result of me trying to design my own profile code and failing horribly. After awhile I just gave up and messed with the screenshot itself instead. I'm not even sure what this is supposed to be....probably a banner? And yes, the text is totally clever, like seriously, it took me many sleepless nights to come up with that sentence. Yeah.

K/S banner-sort-of-thing under cut! Screenshot from "The Galileo Seven"Collapse )
