Saturday

Good Saturday :-)

Watched Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers. Which was amazing. You know... I haven't cried so much since Moulin Rouge. More than once I note only shed tears, but sobbed like a girl :-). I enjoyed the warm company of Marconi and Felis who I met beforehand. They rock :-)

I randomly met pennypenny which is nice as always, and wondered with her and her friend. We went into a obscure video store, and I got Soylent Green for £5!! It was sat there waiting for me! It knew I'd been quoting it around here! It stalks my imagination. I asked: They didn't have the German dubbed version. Ah well!

I bought "Church of Acid" by Velvet Acid Christ from Resurrection Records, which is very good (so far). Very ambient, atmospheric, smooth electronic industrial, as good as Twisted Thought Generator by the same band. I also bought "Entities" by Project Pitchfork because I like "souls" that is on the album, I don't know how good the album is. And I finally got "Electronomicon" by The Electric Hellfire Club (click for album reviews), which Resurrection Records ordered for me.

Didn't you think the CGI for Gollum was just AWESOME???? Which part(s) made you cry? (just curious) :)

Soylent Green... jeez, I haven't seen that in ages! Have you ever seen The Omega Man? ...pretty creepy.

"Vaginismus"????? Ugh, gawd! (Yes, I know just what that is... the medical term, not the song!)


God I cried so much! I knew it was going to be like that... so even during the /OPENING CREDITS/ before anything had even happened I felt like crying just in anticipation! Tee hee!...

I cried over lovers being seperated, children being conscripted, families and children huddling together scared underneath Helm's Deep, when they could hear the Orcs marhing upon them, lots of other occasions...

CGI Gollum was perfect :-) ... and the portrayal of Gollum's personality was very excellent! I didn't really get a sense of how conflicted he was, in the book.

The Velvet Acid Christ track... I know you know the term... the album track is the "Cotch Kick" version. The male lyrics are whispered comments, and there is a wailing female backing vocal. The music style is EBM/Acid Trance, dance music. It's like Acid Trance, only darker, ambient, haunting, instead of purely psychaedelic/upbeat music. Church of Acid (the album) is darker than "Twisted Mind Generator"; the other album I own by Velvet Acid Christ. They're inspiring :-) I will get more albums.

I've probably seen Omega Man, but not for a very long time. One of Wumpscut's most popular tracks samples Soylent Green extensively (the German version, anyway) so it's remained in my mind. Not that I could ever forget /Soylent Green/...

I know what you mean. :)

Awwww. ^___^ You must've taken it really personally. ;)

the album track is the "Cotch Kick" version.
Um... is that missing an 'r'? *L* (Yeah, the female's wailing in the background 'cause she has vaginismus! heh heh) ....Have you heard of Lords of Acid? My cousin brought one of their CDs on our trip to Mexico years ago.

You know, my friend asked me why I would cry, because to him, there didn't seem to be any parts which required crying.......!

It's nice to know that I wasn't the only one with wet eyes throughout the movie--in the first movie, I didn't cry when Gandalf fell, because I knew he came back...but man.....Great movies....AND NOW WE HAVE TO WAIT ANOTHER YEAR BEFORE THE NEXT ONE COMES OUT!! NOOOOOOOOO!

Oh so very awake,
Arashiko

Yay :-)

I was sooo impatient all year waiting for The Two Towers... now we've got to wait all over again! Grrr!
