Another really quick, insignificant post… just watched Pan’s Labyrinth (I totally rewatched ‘Hellboy 2: The Golden Army’ the other night, and got into a Guillermo Del Toro mood 8D) and it was really, really good. Loved it. A great night’s viewing.
But I won’t go on or talk about it any further right now. Maybe another time. Things are too busy at the moment. Must… supress… urge… to rant! -splutter-
Anyway, I thought Sarah Blasko’s new music video for her song ‘No Turning Back‘ was particularly nice, so I thought I’d share:
Visually, it’s pretty beautiful. Also, I love that wolf thing. I would totally hitch a ride to school on one of those.
Apologies for my recent small, dodgy posts, I’ll put in some more effort at a later date!

Last week, I entered a Sydney Morning Herald competition to grab some ‘Kid’s Flicks’ tickets to the Sydney Film Festival (being held at the Hoytz cinema in George Street), primarily because they were offering tickets to a screening of Coraline (hahaha, you know me). And I didn’t win, of course, but the advertisement alerted me to the fact that – hells yeah! – ‘The Secret of Kells’ was playing in Australia. Playing. Here. In Australia. In the festival. On the big screen. For only two showings.
I was so there.

Nabbed this one off a blog post on Cartoon Brew. A fresh take on the Hansel and Gretel Fairytale; disturbing, thrilling, with hauntingly beautiful, gritty animation. Damn, the atmosphere is set up so well. I cursed a few times watching this!
It’s so good, I just love it. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. ;D

First off: Usually, I spend a lot of time writing my blog entries (because I like to spend time on things), but nowadays I honestly don’t have all that much time to spend. Year 12 is terribubble that way… it leaves pretty much absolutely no time for hobbies, no time for gaming, no time for watching new shows or movies, no time for comics or manga, no time for breathing, no time for hanging with friends, no time for anything except cramming in schoolwork. It’s definitely the worst year, work-wise, yet, at least as far as I’m concerned. I have never been so busy. On the rare days I’m not busy, I don’t want to slack off, because I’ll feel guilty for not studying or doing any work, so I end up staring blankly into space, or drawing something half-heartedly, or watching television, rather than doing the more entertaining stuff that I actually -want- to do. Maybe it’s just me!
But, to get to the point, from now on my entries are going to be way more casual and not edited at all; just a ‘splurge page’ for thoughts on things. Otherwise, I’ll never get around to posting anything! I’m going to stop being a perfectionist with this blog and just wordvomit all over it (eeeew).
Anyway, I’ve put off doing this post for a few weeks now, so I’m going to get started on it RIGHT THIS MINUTE!
Nope, your ears don’t need cleaning, and you heard me right – the live-action film, ‘The Last Airbender’, will be heavily based off the animated series, and is set to be released (although this may very well change) on the 2nd of July, 2010 (we’ve got a bit of waiting to do!). Continue reading

People these days are so interesting.
Well, next week is a real bugger of a week, but I’m not even going to go there. Cyberspace is no place for the qualms of my real life. And anyway, if I blogged about my own life experiences, it would probably evolve into some epic, warped tale involving spaceships and robots, because robots make everything cooler.
Anyway, what I really wanted to share was news of something I stumbled upon recently, a really promising Belgian-French animated feature film called ‘The Secret of Kells’. It’s already been released in France and Ireland (this year), but I’m really hoping that it’ll be seeing a mainstream cinema release in Australia, because, from what I can see by the trailer, the visual style looks really eye-catching and stylish. I’d totally watch this on the big screen:
Extra points for having a lead character with an Irish accent!
