Watch out, it's time for a QUIZ! [Mar. 10th, 2007|08:24 pm]
Spider Gremlin
[Mood |drunkdrunk]

Snagged from pippin_cheerio:

1. Can you cook? Kinda. I don’t do well at all when I’ve never cooked it before.

2. What was your dream growing up? To go to Japan. And it still is, damnit!

3. What talent do you wish you had? Parkour. Wouldn’t that be great? I could jump to work!

4. Favourite place? My humble abode.

5. Favourite vegetable? CARROTS!

6. What was the last book you read? “King Kong Cometh”

7. What zodiac sign are you? Leo

8. Any Tattoos and/or Piercings? No tattoos, but a piercing on each ear.

9. Worst Habit? Raiding the cupboard for foodz.

10. Do we know each other outside of Livejournal? No, I’ve never met a quiz before.

11. What is your favourite sport? I’ve always like badminton and tennis.

12. Do you have a Negative or Optimistic attitude? A little bit of both. At the moment I’m more negative.

13. What would you do if you were stuck in an elevator with me? Poke you with a pointy stick.

14. Worst thing to ever happen to you? I’ve had bad things happen to me, but nothing that’s so bad that it gets put in front of all the other ones.

15. Tell me one weird fact about you. I like Godzilla!

16. Do you have any pets? A cat and two rats.

17. Do you know how to do the Macarena? Doesn’t everybody?

18. What time is it where you are now? 08:34 pm.

19. Do you think clowns are cute or scary? Neither. Unless you’re watching Killer Klowns from Outer Space, then the latter seems appropriate. Which by the way is a great film.

24. Bottle or Draft? Say what now?

25. If you won $10,000 dollars today, what would you do with it? Putting it in the bank seems the most sensible thing to do. I wouldn’t spend it all straight away like a moron. I’d give some of it to charity, of course. *waits for the synchronized “awwww…”*

26. What kind of bubble gum do you prefer to chew? Don’t like it. =P

27. What's your favourite bar to hang at? I don’t go to bars. Only if with a friend. Otherwise I’m perfectly happy with drinking alcohol at home, thank you very much.

28. Do you believe in ghosts? Yes, I quite often feel an eerie presence.

30. Do you swear a lot? Phuc yeh

31. Biggest pet peeve? Extreme fangirls. I mean the ones that squee about anything and everything that surrounds their fandom. *shiver*

32. In one word, how would you describe yourself? Nuts.

33. In one word, how would you describe me? Inquisitive.

34. Will you repost this so I can fill it out and do the same for you? Wait, who are you?

Regarding seasonal changes and depression [Mar. 10th, 2007|06:49 pm]
Spider Gremlin
[Mood |depresseddepressed]

Le sigh. I feel depressed. Really down in the dumps.  =P

The most likely reason for said depression is probably because it's March. I hate March. Nothing special happens at all. Christmas is well over and Easter isn't for another month. The weather is horribly indecisive; one minute it's sweltering hot (especially when I'm in my stuffy office), the next it's pouring down with rain and all you want to do is snuggle up by the fire. Bleugh.

I don't want Winter to be over yet. Fuck Spring. In Winter I can really appreciate my bed more on the cold dark nights, but as the seasonal changes take place you can't decide whether you're hot or cold, you should turn the heating up or down, or if you should add on extra layers or strip right down, and sleepless nights are the result. And boy, you can take that from someone who's had a lot of  "tossing-and-turning" experiences. I'm tired right now.

I'm sure by April my downs will completely evaporate, especially with my week-off work and annual weekend-away taking place in that month, I'll produce more smiles than Tony Blair, except only less fake. But until then, I don't think I'll find any way to turn my frown upside down. Try and entertain me, guys...

You Are the Very Gay Velma!

She might not even realize it...
But Velma is all about Daphne... not Fred!
What Gay Childhood Icon Are You?

What?? I always thought Velma was a little into Shaggy, to be honest...

[Mood |goodgood]

I haven't posted to my LJ in what seems like such a looooooong time. I suppose I should post more often to help stop people from thinking I've died. But I haven't. I'm still here. I've just been resting. And neglecting my f-list at the same time. I'm going to try and catch up this afternoon. Deal?

I'll take that as a yes.

Anyway, here's some random stuff about what's been going on in my life:

+ Valentine's Day wasn't anything interesting. Never is. To me it's just an excuse for the marketing world to successfully improve their sales by getting suckers to buy mushy pink stuff for their partners to show their love to each other. Just like people use St. Patrick's Day as an excuse to drink. But that's just my opinion; if you don't agree then just ignore me.  :)

+ My PCD (post-christmas depression) began to improve around the start of February, and now I'm feeling a lot better. Yes, it really does take that long for me. Unfortunately, it doesn't help that the movie channels still persist on showing Christmas movies even though almost two solid months have passed, making me feel sad again.

+ Britney Spears is only doing it all for attention. And you know it.

+ FWEE!! My copy of Godzilla vs. Mothra arrived in the mail last week! It seems like such a long time since I last saw it! Unfortunately, my order came from overseas on Amazon so had to fight tooth-and-nail to actually get inside the DVD case. Is that what what all DVDs are like in the U.S? That's why I try to keep my orders local as much as I can. Anyway, the movie was great.

+ Blood Tea and Red String was an amazing movie. It's now officially in my favourites.

I think that's it. I hope you all have a good weekend!  =)

I was bored, OKAY??? [Feb. 5th, 2007|05:06 pm]
Spider Gremlin
[Mood |happyquite all right, thank you]

From pippin_cheerio:

Supposedly if you've seen over 85 movies, you have no life. Mark the ones you've seen. There are 239 movies on this list. Copy this list and paste it in an entry. Then, put x's next to the movies you've seen, add them up, change the header adding your number. Then, bold the ones you liked and click post. Have fun!


Yeah yeah, I went way over. But at any rate, who cares? I think that just about everybody has seen over 85 movies, whether they're on this list or NOT. So maybe I don't have a life. And besides, you didn't even put Gremlins, Ghostbusters or The Shining on there! And where is Casablanca? Or Gone with the Wind? See my point now???

"Turner-ized" King Kong [Feb. 2nd, 2007|08:23 pm]
Spider Gremlin
[Mood |ecstaticecstatic]

I finally joined the madness that is YouTube.

My first video? Take a look:



I couldn't resist. =) 

The colorized version of the original King Kong is very rare and highly priced among collectors. Wikipedia is the only website where you'll find an actual screen capture from the movie, isn't that a big enough hint?! So sit back, relax and enjoy; as this is YouTube Gold (you'll find a lot of crap on that site too).

P.S. My aim upon joining the video-uploading site is to upload clips from movies previously unavailable. I am NOT uploading videos of myself, home movies, or anything of the like. Sorry to disappoint you.  ^^

Interview! [Jan. 16th, 2007|06:34 pm]
Spider Gremlin
[Mood |thirstythirsty]

Totally snaggled from karinablack :

Interview instructions:

1) Leave me a comment saying, "Interview me."

2) I respond by asking you five questions of a very intimate and creepily personal nature. Or not so creepy/personal.

3) You WILL update your LJ with the answers to the questions.

4) You will include this explanation and an offer to interview someone else in the post.

5) When others comment asking to be interviewed, you will ask them five questions.


1) What was the happiest moment you can recall? 

When I left School.  =D

Actually, it was probably when I was a small child; about five or something. I was lying in my bed, typical School morning. Nothing special... until my parents burst into my room holding a small cat in their arms, yelling "SURPRISE!". I almost had a heart attack of happiness. My first pet. I spent the rest of the morning crawling around the floor tugging on her tail. Bless. I didn't quite understand back then, you see. Oh, happy memories!

2) What do you want to do with your artistic talent? 

Get a job based around it some day, which I'm hoping is not an unrealistic target. Sucks to this boring office job.

3) Where's the SpiderGremlin Puff? 

Urrrmm, here? If you're talking about me, of course. If you're talking about an actual spidergremlin, then I'm afraid it doesn't exist. Yet. Stay on your toes.

4) How much of HP do you feel is inspired by LOTR? 

I can't really say how much. Although I certainly see where you're coming from--I've thought about it quite a bit whilst reading/watching HP and reading/watching LoTR. They're both great, anyway.

5) Stephen King, horror, comedy, or tragedy? 

I'll go with horror. Because the majority of books I've read from him are horror. I especially like The Shining.  =D

w00t, hex masks are back!! [Jan. 15th, 2007|06:49 pm]
Spider Gremlin
[Mood |creative<-- tee hee!]

I've changed my mood theme back to the way it was before. Why? Because I got bored of the other one. Because I'm like that. It's more exciting when you have a non-server supported moodtheme. Don't know why. I feel like such a rebel (if that's what the kids still say). Go me. ^.^

P.S. Go over to potterpuff_fans. I've finally done some more 'puffs. That is all.

Possibly one of the most amusing Flash games ever! [Jan. 11th, 2007|06:48 pm]
Spider Gremlin
[Mood |amusedamused]

God, it is SO weird having a new userpic. I guess I've had Mandy for so many months that I've just gotten used to her, so looking at something different is strange. Really strange. 0_o

Anyways, if you're feeling stressed, mad, and generally pissed off then check out this Bush-style ragdoll physics game. Have fun watching him stumble down the bottomless pit, and don't forget to smack him against those random floating balls! Kept me amused for aaaages.  =)

What are you looking at me like that for? At least Bush is getting what he deserves...

Movies of 2k6! [Jan. 5th, 2007|04:37 pm]
Spider Gremlin
[Mood |productiveproductive]
[Music |Red Hot Chili Peppers, "The Zephyr Song"]

Holy crap, 2k7 already???

Well, okay--I promised myself that I'd do this, so behind the cut you'll find some brief reviews (rated in cookies  instead of stars!) of films that I have seen over the past year. I'm sure I've left some out, but oh well...they can't have been that good if I've forgotten about them! ^.^


Well, that's it for now! 

Overall, I think that 2006 was a pretty good movie year, but nothing compared to the successes of 2005, which include King Kong, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, Corpse Bride, and let's not forget Wallace and Gromit in the Curse of the Were-Rabbit! I'm looking forward to 2007 movie-wise, with the fifth installment of the Harry Potter series, Shrek 3 and of course The Simpsons Movie (God hope they don't blow it after 18 seasons of a very successful animated TV show!).

Well, until next time, bye-bye and have a good weekend!!

Spider Gremlin

.:Edit:. Oh my, I forgot Borat! (I saw an icon of him on my flist which was the thing that reminded me...) Well, I think that it's a hilarious movie and I give it the full five stars cookies. So, there ya go!
