The verdict: 6.5/10
It wasn't a BAD movie. Just not very inventive. I feel like it's a big combo of The Matrix, I, Robot, and the Minority Report. All of which are very good movies in themselves, but Surrogates spreads itself too thin trying to cover themes in all three films. I feel like it just came up short from what the trailers were putting out...the premise was great, but when the mystery cleared, there wasn't really much to say other than an unenthusiastic "oh." And the ending was horrid! I'm all about good endings. A good ending can just about cinch any movie, and this was one was definitely a disappointer.

OK I just remembered the best way to turn a mood around: music. Duh. I hopped onto the piano today and played some tunes...felt so good. Some guy came up to me and interrupted me to ask if I could play some song. Now normally interrupting my playing does a BAD THING for my mood...but he was nice enough and I wasn't about to give a complete stranger the cold shoulder. I don't think I'll be seeing him again but it was good to see someone appreciated my sounds (again with the appreciation, eh Stevo?

And now I'm in my room moving to the beat of my iPod...but not moving TOO much because me dancing in public would just be weird.

Oh and I think I need to come up with a codename for the individual mentioned in my last private entry. How about we say...Irrelevant-Man!

Time for practice...Muffy over and out!

P.S.
Does anybody really look at profiles and galleries anymore? I feel like they're rarely-used gems.

Do not try to bend the spoon. That's impossible. Instead, try to realize the truth. There is no spoon. Then you will see that it is not the spoon that bends, it is only yourself.

(500) Days of Summer. Only one left for Muffy.

LOVE IT.

I'm not entirely sure why, either. Usually I can put my finger on it a particular scene or something that really cinches the movie for me, but the whole damn thing was full of beautiful scripting and moments that just made me smile. It was great. And the ending was perfect. And Zooey Deschanle. Is it weird that she pretty much plays the same character in all of her movies? That offbeat, free spirit type? Somebody described it as the "manic pixie dream girl." I don't know what that means, but it sounds weird enough.

So now I can't get half of the songs from the soundtrack of my head either...and I just want to dance. Because they're SOOOO good to dance to. Not that I would know...or maybe I would. Maybe I'll just learn the dance number to "You Make My Dreams..." That would just be pure bliss.

Now I feel like singing and dancing to any song that I know the words to. I feel slightly sheepish about it, but at the same time I know I would definitely do it anyways. But it would be a difficult stunt to pull since it's 4:30am and the whole house is sleeping.

Speaking of that, I really need to work on my sleep habits (like that transition, eh?) I've been going to bed way past the wee hours of the morning...almost 5 o'clock every day. And then waking up past noon. I mean it's fun I guess, but will definitely not work once school starts.

And speaking of that, I move out tomorrow (ooh transition). And I'm surprised how nonplussed I am by the idea of it.

Now excuse me while I become more indie. Muffy over and out!

Muffy makes a shirt. And then almost throws up.
Tuesday. 9.22.09 5:44 pm
I have been such a poop lately. I haven't really felt productive ever since my last day of work last week...bleh.

ALTHOUGH I did order this awesome custom shirt from spreadshirt. Here's a vague and small pic; it's the best preview they had.

If you can't make out the image, it's a hand gripping a pair of chopsticks which are in turn gripping a piece of shrimp. The text reads "HSUSHI," which is a pun of my last name...props if you get it. I'M SO EXCITED FOR THIS. It will be part of the $110 I spent during the annual Revamp-Muffy's-Wardrobe weekend. That's right folks, it only happens once a year!

Other than that...nothing much new. I went to the first practice of the year and almost threw up again. Jeeeeeez what a way to start the year...I'm not sure if I have some sort of condition or if I'm just overworking my body. I don't really believe there should be a limit to how hard I can push myself, but I guess my stomach disagrees. Which is annoying. Stupid organs.

SO I'm about to head out with my boo and go to the gym. Hopefully I won't feel like barfing this time? Muffy over and out!

[Edit]
So my shirt has been packaged and sent! According to the tracking service, it's all the way in freaking Leetsdale, Pennsylvania. So I've got some time to kill

Jackass! Plus Muffy is musical
Wednesday. 9.16.09 12:57 am
OK I'm going to go off on my pop-culture spree for one more entry. Promise. That's all.

So pretty much the Kanye-Taylor thing is buzzing around everywhere. The internet, radio stations, late night talk show hosts...you name it. Now even the President has put in his word...and it's "he's a jackass." Now if you don't shut up after f*cking Barack Obama calls you a jackass...then you're just a lost cause. I do kinda feel bad for Kanye, though, because his apology on Jay Leno seemed legit enough. I mean I know it's his job to craft his image carefully with the public, but it was pretty heartfelt. I think. He must be thinking "craaaaap"....or maybe more like "craaaaap record sales money money."
[Obama audio found here for those of you who wish to be amused.]

Ok moving on.

Muffy plays a song on the piano! It's a REALLY good song, and I've posted the original version of it below my vid...check it!
(ok after listening to the original, I realize I play it waaaay too fast. Must work on this.)
That's all for now, Muffy over and out!




Get a playlist! Standalone player Get Ringtones

The VMAs...Muffy gives in
Monday. 9.14.09 3:40 pm
So I indulged myself with a little guilty pleasure yesterday. And I wouldn't consider the loads of chips and dip or cake that I ate, because that happens often. No, I'm talking about watching 2.5 hours of the VMAs on MTV. Why? I don't know. I'm not really into any of the music that get nominated, but it's probably one of the most awkward nights on television so it's at least worth a watch (suddenly all the famous people aren't as suave and cool when you take away the scripts!).

The most frustrating thing though is that the people who get the most attention can do it so freaking easily. Gaga dressing up in her whatever the f*ck she was wearing last night, and of course Taylor Swift getting the mic swiped was all just a big publicity stunt. Do you think that someone as cocky as Kanye West cares if America thinks he's a big meanie if he can get his name plastered all over the internet for it? Nuh-uh. I suppose I'm just riding along with the rest of the blogosphere by even bothering to mention the incident...but I'm not gonna lie, I got real excited with Beyonce made him look like a biiiiiitch haha. Ok I'm done . Oh but one more thing, the Michael Jackson tribute was actually really tight...some crazy good dancers in that mix. Ok I'm done about that for reals.

So of course while all of this was happening it was my girlfriend's birthday! What a lovely way to spend the romantic evening, watching two and a half hours of pop culture hysteria. There was a little BBQ and a lot of Muffy eating...bleh so much junk food. But I suppose it was a night of indulgences.

Anyhow I have to get ready for work but I just wanted to post something up in an attempt to remain alive in this community. I'll probably comment on some entries when I get back...since I've been staying up freaking late enough to do so. And I need to take shorter showers too, don't forget to remind me.

Muffy over and out!

Maaan...I don't give a sh*t!
Wednedsay. 9.9.09 10:36 am
Poopity poop. I'm so bad at sticking around here! I guess my excuse will be...hmm...which to use this time...ahh, yes, I've been busy!

Well I really kind of have been, I'm not just making that up. Working usually takes up most of my waking hours (which aren't many), and then I've hung out with some friends and such...got a little early practicing in early just because I am a total jump rope nerd. And it's awesome.

I'm gonna miss my co workers when I leave for school though . Speaking of that, I'm conflicted whether or not I should feel excitement preparing to move out, or absolute dread as I prepare to become an academic again. Hmmm....it's a difficult situation. Because on one hand, my family has the ability to drive me crazy, and on the other hand -- well I guess school has the ability to do that as well.

Hmmm there's been all this talk lately about Obama and healthcare and politics and jibber wabber blah blah blubber blaaaah. And the best part is...I have no idea what the eff is going on! And let me tell ya, this ignorance is complete bliss. Shoot. I remember trying to get all up to date on politics just so I could have a good, solid political discussion with the people at school who wanted to. But who am I kidding, I don't give a shit! I guess that's kind of terrible since the right to vote is DEFINITELY a privilege, don't get me wrong...but it just seems so menial and straight up boring, especially since everybody is so damn convinced that their views are 100% right. I'll let the smarties who WANT to deal with it, deal with it.

Phew that was a little unexpected haha but I guess it feels good to get it off my chest. Anyhow, just got back from work so I'm gonna have myself a feast of leftovers and waffles. And milk. So this is Muffy over and out!
