Touch Me [

[MELCHIOR]
Where I go, when I go there
No more memory anymore
Only men on distant ships
The women with them, swimming with them, to shore

[MORITZ]
Where I go, when I go there
No more whispering anymore
Only hymns upon your lips
A mystic wisdom, rising with them, to shore

[ERNST]
Touch me – just like that
And that – o, yeah – now, that’s heaven
Now, that I like
God, that’s so nice
Now lower down, where the figs lie

[MORITZ] (Spoken)
Still, you must admit
With the two anatomies
It truly is daunting
I mean, how do I know if I…

[MELCHIOR] (Spoken)
Measure up?

[MORITZ] (Spoken)
Not that I’m saying I wouldn’t
I wouldn’t want to not
Wouldn’t ever not want to…

[MELCHIOR] (Spoken)
Moritz!

[MORITZ] (Spoken)
I have to go!

[MELCHIOR] (Spoken)
Moritz! Wait!

[OTTO]
Where I go, when I go there
No more shadows anymore
Only men with golden fins
The rhythm in them, rocking with them, to shore

[GEORG]
Where I go, when I go there
No more weeping anymore
Only in and out your lips
The broken wishes, washing with them, to shore

[ALL]
Touch me – all silent
Tell me – please – all is forgiven
Consume my wine
Consume my mind
I’ll tell you how, how the winds sigh

Touch me – just try it
Now, there – that’s it – God, that’s heaven
I’ll love your light
I’ll love you right
We’ll wander down where the sins cry

Touch me – just like that
Now lower down, where the sins lie

Love me – just for a bit
We’ll wander down, where’s the winds sigh

Where the winds sigh
Where the winds sigh

And the brilliant C. Payette...

Ya, like that'll happen anytime soon. Oh well. That's actually what I'm listening to at the moment. I know, how emo, eh? Oh well. Cheryl and I were discussing blogging, so I thought that it was about time that I wrote an entry. Today, oh today. I studied a lot of Macro. In fact, I only have 1 chapter left to study, then review, and there's still like 40 hours before the exam. How amazing is that? I mean, I never study early... it's like... this thing I just don't do. But I have this time, and now there's less stress. So nice to have less stress! Cheryl's giving me a lecture in opinion, which I totally deserve. I definitely add "Just kidding" or any number of little quips at the ends of my sentences when I feel that what I'm saying might offend. Now, I shouldn't outright offend people, but I also shouldn't censor myself for their benefit. If I feel something, if I have an opinion, I have every bloody right to say what I think. Right? Christina's getting better! :) She's been really bummed about this dude, and I think that she's stopped putting some blame on herself, which is great. She's totally freakin' amazing, and gah, I love her. She's got an audition tomorrow, so officially over livejournal I wish Christina Waves: "GOOD LUCK!" I really want to read tomorrow. I think I'm going to go to the library as soon as I wake up, and stay there until closing time. In between studying for my exam, I will read. I plan on reading the book version of The Hours, then the screenplay, and then Mrs. Dalloway. It will be fun, I hope. I just hope that it doesn't take over study time too much. OMG Perez Hilton is going to be on the View! Bastard. I can't believe I just brought celebnews into my livejournal. Eugh. Well, at least I'm being honest. It is a part of my day. Speaking of which, here're some celebs and what I think of them.

Brangelina & co. - Amazing. Beautiful people, nice people, talented people.
Maniston - Your loss is Jolie's gain beeyotch.
Britney - Hun, seriously. You used to be like the pop princess to reckon with, now you're bald and scary.
K-Fed - I can't even... I just... eugh
Lindsay Lohan - Love her! She needs to get over the party phase, but she's beautiful and talented.
Nicole Richie - Omg, if you're pregnant with Joel Madden's baby... oh man.
Paris Hilton - Serves ya right, beeyotch.
Fugs and Jugs - Eugh. I haaate John Mayer with a burning passion. Jessica Simpson's ok. She can sing.

Ok, so that's enough celeb opinion for one day I should think. Oooh, I just got Notting Hill and am planning to watch it. It's kind of a guilty pleasure of mine. You know the whole bit where Julia's all "I'm just a girl, standing in front of a boy." So sappy, but so good. I'm also going to get Letters From Iwo Jima. I hear that it's absolutely brilliant. Oh, I can't wait to see The Bourne Ultimatum this summer. I know that I already mentioned it, but it totally needed to be said again. Also, I saw the trailer for PT Anderson's There Will Be Blood on youtube, and it looks brilliant. Daniel Day-Lewis is a fantastic actor. I also have to decide whether or not I want to act in the show this summer. I'm leaning towards "Yes" as I miss acting so much. I need to get up on my feet, do some theatre and sing my heart out. Well, ok, now I need to rest. Next time I'll embed some media, so that it's not just boring writing all the time.

Ok. So I know I said that I'd embed media NEXT time... but I have to do it now. I found this absolutely brilliant video of Julianne Moore being wicked.


Brilliant. Fucking brilliant.

Today was a horrible day. I stayed up way too late last night, and didn't get up and doing anything until past noon. My friend P came over at about 3, which was great. She's really awesome, and it was great to hang out with her and catch up on certain things. It all started going downhill when I was supposed to go see a movie for my friend's bday. First none of the times worked out, which sucked. Then we were able to make it, but the bus was like 30 min late! 30!!! We waited there until 6:45 pm, then the bus finally came, but the movie was downtown at 7:30 so we totally missed it. Really sucks, because it was her birthday and all. I then watched the movie Babel with my friend, and I thought it was fantastic. It's my second time seeing it, and I still enjoyed it a lot. The acting is phenomenal (though I agree that Cate Blanchett is underused), and the story is so... I dunno, it just really hit home for me. I felt so disconnected after watching the movie. There's a deaf girl who just wants to be held, to be touched, to be understood, and loved... and as stupid as it sounds, that's me too. I just... I really want to go home. I'm tired, and hot, and confused, and... sick of Toronto. I need to get out of here, and get back to where there's grass, and family, and food, and... home! I hate reading the people on the message boards on IMDB though. Gosh, these frigging puritanical bastards who denounce the movie because it's pro illegal immigration, or has youthful sexual undertones or w/e. It's so frustrating. It's like, god forbid a 12 year old boy shows interest in a naked body, like... it happens, but it's awkward, and we're sexually repressed, so let's denounce the entire film. It makes me sick. Thankfully there are people who see past that, and can appreciate the movie for what it is, or dislike the movie, but at least not get hung up on something as silly as some nudity in a movie. I seem to be watching a lot of depressing movies about isolation these days.. hmm... fit the bill much? Someone wrote on the boards that, in the movie, the girl shows herself nude to this man in desperation... because... she wants to feel wanted or whatever. And he concludes that someone who shows themselves to strangers, can't be in an ideal state of mind. Interesting.

Cheers.

So, I'm up late again because I'm trying to figure out what movies I'm going to watch tomorrow. I have absolutely no idea what I'm going to watch, but it'd better be good. I kinda just want polly and whoever else is coming to pick, becasue I can't be bothered. Today was a long and stressful day. I found out that I dont'find out about housing until friday, eugh. Thankfully macro was really easy. Money isn't that difficult a concept. It's cheryl's bday today, so that's really exciting. HAPPY BIRTHDAY CHERYL!!!! Yay, so ya. I guess I'd better get to bed now. There's really nothing else to talk about. Oooh, I hope that Wes Craven's New Nightmare is at the library because I really want to see it. I also recently watched THE BOURNE IDENTITY and THE BOURNE SUPREMACY and I looooved them. Can't wait for THE BOURNE ULTIMATUM. Ya, they deserve caps lock.


Eugh, why? [

[ mood | aggravated ]

So a long time ago, well during the year, I did something really stupid, and I feel really guilty about it still. I was having a quarter life crisis and trying to figure out who I was, and so I explored things online. Well I met someone online, and sent some photos, and they sent some photos back. And, well, I feel guilty about it. I feel guilty about it for the stupidest reasons ever though. I'm in theatre, what if I become big and this person has these photos of me? Sketch. I know it was just like a phase and stuff, but things like this... I don't know. Sometimes I feel like it's going to haunt me for the rest of my life. Meh, who am I kidding, they probably don't care that much.

In other news, I went to bed at 5AM last night for NO REASON and didn't get up until 2:30 PM. So pissed off at myself. It's disgusting. It throws off my entire day. I have enrolment tonight at 7:30. That's another thing, I'm pretty scared of what I'm going to do when I grow up. I'm scurred. A lot of Master's programs for International stuff need lots of International courses in your undergrad. Thankfully I'm doing International Development, and it's a new program, so it's not listed on a bunch of sites, but the courses you can take in it can count towards it I think. I'm pretty sure. Plus, if I get work experience then I can get in. I just have to do really well in school. I really need to do well in school. Eugh.

Also, I don't have a home yet. Housing hasn't sent out any offers yet, which totally freaks me out. I have to go there now, in fact. Oh well.
Cheers.

So this livejournal thing has really tested my patience. It took me forever to manipulate this layout to come up with the results that you see in front of you. Was this work in vain? Probably. Do I now have a picture of Mr. Rudd with some sweet colour choices for BG (though perhaps too bright)? Yes. So it's not all bad. However, it is 3:26... 27 now and I have to do a lot of different things tomorrow. What kinds of things? Well I have to go to housing, and study, and eat, and was going to run (ha) but oh well.

I saw two incredible movies today. Well very good ones at least:

Das Leben der Anderen (2006)

I don't even know where to begin with this movie. The movie takes place in 1984, and it follows the story of Hauptmann Gerd Wiesler who works for the Stasi in East Germany. There is a playwright (Dreyer) and his actress girlfriend (Sieland), and they are under surveillance by the Stasi, as the Stasi believe that they have anti-Socialist ideas. The movie is about the systematic surveillance of this couple, the way Socialism affects their lives, and what they're wiling to do in order to taste some kind of personal freedom. We also watch the man in charge of the surveillance (Wiesler) become wrapped up in the world of these two people.
The movie is brilliantly acted, with Ulrich Mühe playing Wiesler. I remember watching Funny Games (98 Haneke) and thinking that he was fantastic, but he really outdid himself with this incredibly subtle and calculating performance. Eugh, I'd keep going but I'm getting very tired. Suffice it to say that I really enjoyed the film. I thought that it was powerfully directed, well-written, beautifully shot and well acted. I'm actually glad it beat Pan's for Best Foreign Language Film! ****

Munich (2005)

I didn't know what to expect going into this, but I came out of it with an interest in Israeli/Arab conflict. I like the way that Spielberg chose to go a little documentary-like for the film, as I think it enabled me to judge the actions based on my own beliefs rather than over-sympathize for one side. Really nice flick. ***1/2-****

Here's the trailer for Das Leben:
