well, life is full of beginnings and endings, and i'm slightly sorry to say antigone812, my friends, has come to an end at last. she's one and a half livejournal years old- i think that's about 90 years in our time, so she's more than ready to bite the dust. time to wipe the slate clean; make a fresh start. yes, in the lj world reincarnation is the only form of afterlife. wow, dont we feel stupid.. worshiping false gods all this time.. :-P

if you so desire to remain my friend in spite of my new name, feel free to add pidieh to your friend's page. i'll be keeping more or less the same people around probably, but if you dont add me back, no worries. my feelings are not hurt.













good bye.

my two cents about PoA (spoiler free i think)
w00t! i saw it today. it was by far the best of the three, thanks to mr alfonso curan i imagine. very dark and spooky and mysterious- unlike the first two which were light and cheerful and.. two dimentional. even the acting was somewhat less bad. i still hate how the charactors are portrayed- hermione took all of ron's lines that gave him any kind of credibility as an admirable charactor, leaving him as nothing but a little side kick; comic relief. harry is still annoyingly polite and emotionally mature, but he's a little less perfect in this one. i still think daniel radcliffe's a lousy actor though. there was also waaaayyyyy too much 'shipping'- makes me think hermione's a huge goddamn tease, but she's totally no-nonsense and practical in the books. serius didnt get too much play in the movie and lupin was nothing like'd imagined him, but thats alright i guess. a few parts were just unforgivable lame and cheesy (harry gliding over the lake on buckbeak, fred and george finishing each other's sentances, etc).. and what the hell was up with the warewolf?? that sure isn't what i'd make a warewof look like if i were to make one. but oh well- this always happens for adapations- everyone has a different pic in their mind already so no one can be satisfied. still.. it was very well done- the final sequence was excellent and i loved some of the more subtle allusions to the magic world. i'm not sure how it would look to someone who hadnt read the book though- seems like it moved very very fast and left some serious holes. they never explained HOW serius got out of azkaban, and they never even acknowledged the relationship between padfoot, moony, prongs, and wormtail. but then maybe its not too noticeable.

all in all though.. extremely enjoyble. i think it was more of an actual good movie this time and less of a crappy adapation. also, it was pretty stylistic. there were just a lot of little inconspicuous things that really added.

i wish the actors in this movie were all really ugly. that would be hilarious. jk rowling once said, in response to all the little girls falling in love with draco, that we have to remember that mr malfoy is REALLY a bad guy.. even if tom felton is cute, which he's not (but then i'm not a fan of boys with white-blonde hair. and i'm not 13.)

now i'm somewhat concerned with how the fourth book will be transformed into film. its the poorest written of the five but has the most important ending. one thing i noticed about PoA was the prob 3/4 of the book took up less than half of the movie. i think the first 500 pages will probably be done in about a half hour and the last 200 will be the rest of movie #4. many many things will be left out. hehehe, ah well.

i just wish i had the strength to not see these movies so i could keep everything in my head the way i want. but alas. you can't avoid it.

ps- i am AMAZED at how many hermione-clones i saw at that theater. seemed like i was almost the only person not in costume. haha.

pps- sorry about the lack of articulation. i'm frankly far too exhausted right now to worry about making sense to anyone besides myself. and now i'm off to bed.

end of an era
welp, buddy b's gone; curt came and left; the day is almost done. i didn't cry as i'd been expecting to- i barely felt sad even. too tired to care much i guess. itll hit me soon i'm sure. now there's school tomorrow so i made sure to set my alarm nice and early and i'll probably just crash around 8. uh, thats it. yeah.

Current Mood: completely out of it

halle-fucking-lujah. FINALLY finished nico's scarf, and now i hardly know what to do with myself. i've been awake since 4:30 and cannot fall back asleep for anything. i've figured out my sleeping problems- whenever my life isn't absolutely bland and boring i can't sleep. and today i am headed to the mall to pick up the new harry potter computer game. isn't that silly? i'm so easily amused. but i sure do hate malls.

i feel bad that i've been so bitchy lately. not with any particular person; just people in general. people are so ridiculous and pathetic so much of the time- it makes me very foul-tempered whenever i'm not able to laugh at it. honestly i make a conscious effort most of the time to try and go about my business thinking the best of everyone and everything. but then my evilness takes hold and i just feel like shoving a screw driver through people's brains. i am a very bad person. and i really need to get away. at least change is upon me. change is a wonderful thing.

updated my user info b/c i'm so bored.

hi leann! :-D

Current Mood: giddy
