Movie Talk: The Big Lebowski

Yesterday I’ve decided to re-watch one of the movies in my collection called The Big Lebowski. Okay I admit it, the first time I watch this movie I never really understand what it’s about, maybe because the ones I’ve downloaded have low-quality audio (even when all my volumes are set to 100% I still can’t hear it properly). So I’ve downloaded a new one (with better quality of course) and re-watch it. It feels like I just watched it for the first time ever! Now I get the pictures of that this movie was about, it was about a dude who called himself ‘The Dude’ (whose real name was Jeff Lebowski) got involved in a case of mistaken identity by some gangsters. Those gangsters are looking for another Mr. Lebowski, whose wife owed some debts to those gangsters. So one thing lead to another; actually it all started after those gangsters peed on The Dude’s rug and some ‘motivational talks’ from The Dude’s bowling partner, Walter, mixed with a fuckload of 聽fuck you’s and gallons of White Russians (it’s a drink!), they’ve through all the abyss until the end.

The Dude, Donny, Walter.

聽.

This is remarkably one of the funniest movie I’ve ever seen, even thinking about the scenes makes me laugh until now. I love how cool The Dude was, when the gangsters first extorted him at his house, one of the gangster put his face into the toilet bowl and The Dude calmly took his shades which fell off into the bowl, put it on, and sat on the toilet bowl and he was like, “What the fuck, man?”. I also love a side-character whose name is Jesus Quintana, he’s one of their bowling-nemesis and he’s supposed to be a pervert in that movie. Just look at this man, Jesus!

.

But one thing I hate about this movie, I hate the ending. I hate how their friend Donny died. Nobody likes death as the ending 馃槮 And they also didn’t show how the Bowling League goes and also there are no scenes where The Dude bowled. I really like to see the sequel of this movie, but I doubt there will be one since there will be no scenes where Walter could say “Shut the fuck up Donny!” again. Nevertheless, I give this movie 4.8 over 5. I also would like to thank my dear friend Manu for recommending me this tremendous movie, I really hope I’ll find some movies as great as this again 馃檪

Hidden Places.

The reason I can’t answer some questions during exams is because I tend to read non-exam materials because they suddenly looked very interesting. For example, I was studying for my Islamic and Asian Civilizations paper and when it comes to Chinese Civilizations, I found myself reading about Shambala, a so-called mythical kingdom which was hidden somewhere in Asia. It’s not in our syllabus but it’s very interesting. Do you believe in hidden cities/places around the world? Do they really exist? I can’t say no because we can’t even confirm that they did not exist.

Random Things #1

I just finished with one of the most twisted paper ever today. It was a paper for my Critical Thinking subject, where it was in multiple-choice questions and all the answers options are pretty much related and you just have to pick the most accurate one. I I have no idea if I can get good grades for that. But meh, I’ve tried hard for that. Hopefully everything goes well for me 馃檪 Btw I’ve hoarded a couple of pics since a few days ago, just wanna show you guys these:

I’ve downloaded VPET for my iPhone. I’m so happy to get to play this again but I got bored after playing it for 3 days 馃槮

Went to a local supermarket recently and I spotted this. It’s kinda funny, because it literally translates to “Fresh Pensive Fish”, a pretty funny name for a fish yeah :p

I took a short evening nap and when I woke up I saw these. On my face. My cats tends to be creepy but it’s still pretty adorable :3

Sister took a random pic of me. Never did I know it turned out to be this ‘panoramic’ or however it is called.

Gotta update with lots and lots of weird stuffs again soon, hang in there okay? Cheerio!

Midnight Rants.

Wow it’s 1:04 a.m and I still didn’t do my revision for tomorrow’s paper! I am basically fucked for that, so I guess I just have to read basic things about music. Yeah it’s my music paper tomorrow, not to mention it starts at 9 in the morning. Yeah that’s great! I just don’t have the mood to study tonight, been thinking about a lot of things. And I forced myself to talk to a lot of people just to make me forget that I’m actually pretty sad right now. Hmm I just hope I’ll (at least) remember this:

Our music tutor also promised to give us A for the subject. I’ll also do my best for my paper tomorrow morning but if I didn’t get A or A- for my paper consider him to be a promise-breaker yeah, can I even think like that? :p

My Music Collections

Hello World! I’m turning over a new leaf for this blog, I think there won’t be anymore emotional posts, I realized it just shows how vulnerable I am. So I think I’ve put an end to it, hopefully it won’t happen again in the future 馃檪 So I was cleaning up my messy room this evening and I got distracted by a box. It’s not just an ordinary box, I think I’ve kept all my happiness in there! Is it even possible? :p Anyhow here’s my happiness box if you like to see it:

IMG00511-20130104-2040

Yup, it’s my happiness box. Wanna see what’s inside? Read my post’s title! I don’t have much but it’s enough to make me smile everytime I look at them. Here they are:

IMG_2294 IMG_2293 IMG_2292

My favourite cd to hold. It consists of two sides, Hvarf and Heim. So the cd is called Hvarf-Heim, and it’s a masterpiece by Sigur R贸s.

IMG_2296

These are my other Sigur R贸s collections.

IMG_2301

The Cure part 1. Interesting fact: the upper-left cd is my favourite Pornography ever! Okay actually the album’s name is Pornography, I don’t have any idea why they named it that way, maybe the name sounds pretty catchy :p and next to it is Japanese Whispers, one of the best. And then under Pornography is Disintegration, it’s one of my favourite album of all time.

IMG_2302

The Cure part 2. Yes I switched the Maneki Neko figure with my rubik’s cube :p Btw the lower right cd is not an album, it’s a single called Friday I’m In Love.

IMG_2305

The Cure part 3. I never know if these vinyls really worked because I don’t have a vinyl player, too bad. But they’re still a nice add to my music collections.

IMG_2306

My other CDs. I know I have a lot more but I don’t know where I keep the rest of it, they’re probably asleep in our house’s store room.

One of my 2013 resolution is to add up my music collections, I know I can do this. Probably the only resolution that is possible to be achieved lol. I have a lot more in my list, I just need proper time and amount of $$ to get them. Someday I 聽might need a bigger happiness box, maybe it’s time to look for one!
