Where the fuck is everyone? Like, 4 people are on AIM at the moment, though I'm sure my very very miniscule buddy list doesn't do much to help the situation. I'm bored shitless, and I need a conversation. I feel trapped my own head, and I'm not about to start talking to myself. I'm not that crazy. 'least, not yet. 

Barnes and Noble has a buy two get one free sale going on, I think 'till tomorrow. Very glad I stopped by there tonight. I picked up the 3 Disc mega ultra super deluxe edition of Kurosawa's "Seven Samurai", which I've been dying to see for a long time, but could never find, Hitchcock's "Shadow of a Doubt", which is, in my opinion, one of his most underrated movies, and Aronofsky's "The Fountain". I've had the soundtrack for that movie for a while, and I love it, because Clint Mansell is possibly one of the best film scorers in the history of the profession, right up there with Ennio Morricone and Hans Zimmer, so it made me really intrigued to see the movie. I love most anything Aronofsky does. So far, I've seen The Wrestler and Requiem for a Dream, and parts of Pi, and he definitely picks up on the darker, more depressing side of humanity. 

Saw "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button" last night as well, when I was over at Kyle's place. Aside from being incredibly long, and a little bit of a slow beginning, I was very impressed. Brad Pitt definitely deserved the nod he got for the Best Actor nomination at the Oscars last year. Still think Rourke should have won for The Wrestler, but I really can't say anything until I've seen Milk, which I own, but haven't gotten around to watching.

I really wanna see both Land of the Lost and The Hangover. Land of the Lost mostly because Danny McBride is a god damn comedic genius (See: The Foot Fist Way, Hot Rod, Tropic Thunder (I've yet to see Eastbound and Down, but I've heard very good things from numerous sources)), and Will Ferrell's been on a roll lately. The Hangover has the potential to be the funniest movie of the year, in my eyes. It might look like a stupid, run of the mill generic comedy at first, but Zack Galifinakis (sp?) is pretty damn funny, so he can definitely turn that around on his own if need be. And the Mike Tyson scene looks like gold.

I wanna meet Orson Welles. And drink with him. He's a badass.

That's all.

But their movies are so fucking overpriced. It's ridiculous. I don't mind going for books, though. And... it's not my birthday. But thank you anyway =P lol.
