A long post about various things

So it happens that my parents are out of town. my mom, for the weekend, my dad, for the day.
Some people would say.....whoooooo have a party man!!!!
but 1-my friends(?) (and sometimes me) are not really the rocking house party type...
and 2- i would prefer to rest my aching body.

yes,yes, it definitely aches......

I had that athletics meet (yday n today), which we were so not ready for......
so there was an insane three days of extreme workout....and weights... (not good......i think that totally screwed up my back) and then the meet starts and it was like it's jinxed.........
we lost most of the short distances....
my 200 m was screwed cuz i didn't hear the start (aaaaaaargh...)

and the relay, yeah, we won that, but it was a kinda depressing day cuz the under-16 girls lost theirs, so they might (just might) not be coming to nationals with us..................
damn......
on the brighter side, the u-19 guys won their relay (woooo you should see them run, it's bee-yootiful..............hehe, i love speed, did i ever mention?) so they'll be with us....
so good. and S is in the team. even better.
S is rather interesting.................he's got this.........i dunno, this silent insanity about him.........
people thought i'd kinda fallen for him.......
i hadn't....
i was just trying to get to know him, but you know what happens when i suddenly decide i wanna befriend people......
Disaster.
sigh.
so there it is.

hmmm, just waiting for the vacations to start, there's so much i need to do......
first on the list, i attack samara video and rent out all the movies i've wanted to watch but my old video rental din have some of them..........

1. The Matrix trilogy (yes-i-knoww-i-suck-i-know-i'm-a-pariah-just-stop-screaming!!!!)
2. Blade trilogy
3. Borat (see 1)
4. Scary movie series (see 1)
5. Maybe i'll hunt out some anime, a friend told me samara had sailor moon n stuff, and though i like the drawing style i've never really watched anime, so i'll go hunt it out.
6. Um........I will also attack the F.R.I.E.N.D.S shelf.....you see i don't have cable tv, so i haven't seen too much of friends, just what i watch when in mumbai, and on youtube....
7....um......dunno.......any suggestions?

hmm, i also want to properly work with the weights n stuff n build up my legs before january.....hah....and then go spend hours at borders..........and the beach..........alone.........bliss..........
sigh....................................

You haven't seen The Matrix already? That's a shame. Even bigger shame to go see it now lol.

Perhaps, if you haven't watched it yet, add The Gods Must Be Crazy to that list.

may be the quick stepped up workout pgm didnt make the cut - but dont worry, you got frist in replay - congratz. workout daily and be in a good shape for nationals. :)
I hv heard lot about friends - in fact, i have even brough DVD of friends for my friends, but never watched it. Do workout and enjoy...

Borat? Eww. >_< I hate toilet humor.

Here's some nice movies you MIGHT like.

Straight Story [Russian] - About a world where homosexuality is the norm, and a boy has to deal with his hetrosexuality, falling in love with his female best friend.
Funny, and though provoking. Reminded me again how arbitrary moral standards are.

Kiss Kiss Bang Bang - Comedy / Murder mystery, starring Robert Downey Jr., Val Kilmer, Very entertaining.

Eternal Sunshine of The Spotless Mind I love romantic movies.

The Butterfly Effect [Director's Cut] The conclusion in the Director's cut is mindblowing. :)

Lock, Stock & Two Smoking Barrels One of the best movies I've watched, about how a bunch of guys try to steal some money from the neighbours, who happen to be drug dealers. Hera Pheri 2 ripped the script from this movie and turned it into a comedy. :(

Run Lola Run (German) Explores the concept of alternate realities. Got one of the best movie soundtracks I've heard.

Chitty Chitty Bang Bang A super car that flies, floats, and hey... it works on the road too! I love children's movies too. ^_^

HM... you watch youtube on dialup?? O_O

*bows in worship*

Cheers! ^_^

you haven't seen friends????go borrow those dvds and WATCH them!!!!

2 taurius: about borat, i'm just curious. straight story sounds very interesting............i must now go hunt for it..... and the rest too.
and no, i watch youtube at a friend's house.

2 the german thing : what??

and lastly.....if you dont want me to read your comment then why bother commenting?

Renovatio said...

I'd like to go back to a happier time, before the matrix came out.
Also, Borat is pathetic, it's potty humor. Quite literally. He actually holds a bag full of shit at one point.


Good movies, well then, allow me...

Shawshank Redemption
Casablanca
Amadeus
Seven Samurai
Citizen Kane
The Weather Man
V for Vendetta
The Terminal
Gladiator
Hitch
-If you haven't seen this, I shall refrain from commenting further until this has been rectified
The King of Comedy
Music and Lyrics
Pulp Fiction
The Departed
Hairspray
Rules of the Game
Metropolis


Start off on those, ask for more when you're ready.

ok ignore taurius whoever he is, borat is one of the greatest movies ever made, period. it takes a rare skill to elevate toilet humour to a level where it cud make me flinch!!! and btw, the holds a bag of pubic hair, not shit.

ur going to watch it neways but even so, dont watch it avec parental company tho.
second, see if theyve got any akira kurosawa, subtitled like the seven samurai, ingmar bergman, roberto bellini, goddard, doubtful if samara has ne of the good stuff, but give it a try, arty farty as wali wud say, but cinematic genius nonetheless.
matrix one kicks ass
anyone who disagrees should be made to watch the other two as punishment, and for gods sake horsey, ur my best friend atleast i hope so, it doesnt bode well for our future conversations if u havet watched the scary movie and the american pie series and eurotrip.

btw, sanjay, i noe xactly wht u mean.

Mystique said...

2 reno: actually hitch is the only one on ur list that i HAVE seen..................

2 mon: thank u!!

2 r: yes. sanjay. is there anyway you could get the guy to not hate me?
oh ps, shail n sanjay find it very amusing that u keep calling, if i get ragged for this I WILL KILL YOU.

I rest my case. I don't usually find anything that merits enjoyment in disgusting imagery. But I guess to each his own. :/

Toilet humor simply does not appeal to me. It's very strange how people don't appreciate humor than makes them think for a bit, but then again, given the kind of people I usually run into everywhere, maybe that isn't such a big wonder after all! :D

I remember a certain animated clip I'd seen on youtube, can't find it any more :(
It features two characters. One is VERY depressed, sitting on a log. So the other tried to cheer him up. Does funny stuff, tells jokes, dresses like a clown.... But nothing works. In the end, even the 2nd character gets depressed. So he settles down beside his friend on the log. As he's sitting, he farts. And the 1st character immediately burts into a fit of uncontrolable laughter.
>_<

Kinda sad... It makes me relate to the second character sometimes when all my friends laugh out for no logical reason. >_<

@ mystique
Hmmm... I doubt you'll find the movie very easily.
I couldn't even find a decent copy of it anywhere online. Not on p2p networks, not on bittorrent... :(
In anycase, it didn't matter too much. I usually get most of my stuff couriered to me from my friends all across the country. Just took me some time till I was able to find someone who could get his hands on a copy for me. :D

@ renovatio
Nice list. I haven't seen about half a dozen of them. Will *get* them after my exam tomorrow. ^_^

Mystique said...

2 reno: :) why can i not find u on any networking site???

2 taurius: don't mind freud, he's a 17 year old with a juvenile mind.

@mystique
oh then i have nothing to worry about. i'm a 20 year old with a juvenile mind.
Bwahaha!

Renovatio said...

Because I'm not on any networking site love.

taurius1 said...

Finally!!! One sensible soul!

I used to have this sick compulsion about registering myself everywhere online. At one point of time, I had 17 email addresses, each with it's own function, and an intricate filtering + auto forwarding set up to automatically sort the stuff...
Then I signed up for a website that let me view all these email addresses on one page, via a single login.... /swt it was very tedious. The obvious thing to do never really struck me for a few months...

Mystique said...

2 reno: WHATTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT?????!!!!!
hmm.....actually......good 4 u.....
damn i'm in shock....
