The Land Before Time. Anyone remember those movies? For some reason, I was thinking about them today, and I miss them. They were so sweet. So, I decided to look at how many I've seen, and how many I own. Well, guess what I discovered...

(BOLDED if seen, ITALICIZED if owned; trailers/info linked in titles)

The Land Before Time (1988)
The Land Before Time II: The Great Valley Adventure (1994)
The Land Before Time III: The Time of the Great Giving (1995)
The Land Before Time IV: Journey Through the Mists (1996)
The Land Before Time V: The Mysterious Island (1997)
The Land Before Time VI: The Secret of Saurus Rock (1998)
The Land Before Time VII: The Stone of Cold Fire (2000)
The Land Before Time VIII: The Big Freeze (2001)
The Land Before Time IX: Journey to Big Water (2002)
The Land Before Time X: The Great Longneck Migration (2003)
The Land Before Time XI: Invasion of the Tinysauruses (2004)
The Land Before Time XII: The Great Day of the Flyers (2006)
The Land Before Time XIII: The Wisdom of Friends (2007)
The Land Before Time: Sing-Along Songs (1997)
The Land Before Time: More Sing-Along Songs (1999)

Yeah, I'm a fan. Wow, I need to go on a marathon of watching those movies sometime soon... Right after my Disney Classics marathon... :D (On another note, who remembers that awesome voiceover present in every kids movie trailer before they got more "stylish"? I miss him!)

*ahem* Okay, now that I have announced that this is most definitely not what I should be doing, I shall continue.

1) I want a boyfriend. Or a girlfriend. Of course, the guy at my school I like is 100%, limp-wristing Lord GaGa gay. And the girl is 100% straight. And the other one... You know the details. :/ Actually, what I really just want is to be in love. Like, good-fanfiction love (yes, this is apparently how I measure love now. :D)

2) I need to see Velvet Goldmine, Hard Candy, A Clockwork Orange, and Sunshine (Cillian Murhy Capa = SEX). Soon. Preferably with a friend. I wish I knew y'all in real life. You seem chill.

3) I want to see more non-linear romance movies. Like Eternal Sunshine, or my favorite JGL-hipster movie, (500) Days of Summer. Or even just really non-mainstream romances, like Moulin Rouge! or Once. Recs?

4) I'm reading this awesome, non-linear, really out-there book called House of Leaves by Mark Z. Danielewiski. READ. IT.

5) Na Na Na is out on iTunes tomorrow! EEEEEEE! *wants flaily redhead-Gerard fic plz*

6) For some reason, I miss Panic!, and its fantabulous fandom. Hopefully it'll come back soon. Anyone have any really good Ryden or GSF fics?

7) ETA: I got rid of the banner. Too much work to pick one out each time. *lol at my laziness*

8) I want a corset. A real one. They're sexy.

9) I've been feeling randomly down recently. IDK why, but I've just been kinda apathetic and mopey about everything. And I'm re-reading the PCCF, and, as usual, sobbing. :/

10) I'm probably going to make a super-exclusive friends group for those of you whom I interact with a lot and am pretty tight with, so that I can post ONE picture of myself (in massive sunglasses, of course). Comment with why you should be in it!

11) What are some good stock icon makers? I'm OBSESSED. XD

Day 28 – Reasons why you love them and their music

Wow, where to begin? Well, let me break this up twice-wise.

Why do I love them? They're inspirational, amazing people who also seem very imperfect and human. I mean, Gerard gets up on stage, or in interviews, and they all do, and say the most amazing things, but then they go home and play video games and read comic books. They're so talented (ESPECIALLY a certain Mr. Toro), and Gerard's concepts are so striking and raw. And I love they way they interact, the way they all seem so close, especially the adorable Way brothers geeking out or Frank's fangirly-glomping all over Gerard. Tinhat or not, I love to see them together. Lastly, yes, they are all very beautiful. And (actually, this is lastly), their stage presence is so strong. If When I make it onto a stage like that, I want to be strong and stand out like they do, to push buttons, to mean something.

Why do I love their music? For many of the above reasons: it's inspirational, it's creative, it's touching. But also, I love how they can tackle dark, heavy issues, like death, head-on, and make it strong, but then go and write about teenage angst completely tongue-in-cheek and make a song all about DEATH be so sarcastic and fun. I love their pop-punk sound, I love their guitar, I love Gerard's VOICE... I love their music. I really, really do.

If anything, watch this. This captures why I love them, and more. It captures them.

Mmmmmm... ♥ (On the other hand, the inherent sexism of this song annoys me, but it was ancient China, so it's not inexcusable in this setting.)

Okay, I have found the best site. Ever. (Besides here, of course, and Facebook and YouTube XD). It's a suggestion site, but not just for one thing. You can input movies, TV programmes, bands, books, and authors, and it'll recommend you ones it thinks you'll like. And it's very accurate! It's called TasteKid; you can find me, of course, as kasuchans. :) Enjoy!

Just random information about my life thus far:

A) Classes have just picked back up, so I am rather busy at the moment, and am stealing minutes here and there, as well as necessitating more sleep. That would be why my music meme for yesterday and today are both late, so I'm going to have to double up.

B) OMG THE VMAs were AMAZING. GAGA WON SO MANY AWARDS IT'S NOT EVEN FUNNY.

C) I am getting rather sick of MCR's cryptic-ness. At least give us one hard and fast clue, seriously. Now it's just annoying, and seems kinda juvenile for a fourth album.

D) I just finished watching Breakfast on Pluto, and it was amazing. I am... speechless. Oh, Kitten. So, after having seen that, Watching The Detectives, On The Edge, Sunburn, Disco Pigs, Intermission, and Inception, which movie of Cillian's would you reccommend to me to watch next?

E) I AM GOING TO STALK JOSEPH GORDON-LEVITT AND GET A PHOTO OF HIM BEFORE HE WRAPS UP HIS FILMING IN MY NEIGHBORHOOD NOW JUST YOU WAIT! XD

F) Also, I haven't been able to stay as on top of my fandoms as much as usual. Anyone have any fic recs for me? :)

Reply with 'FISHSTICKS!!!' and I’ll give you four fandoms. You then have to make an entry writing about your favorite character from each fandom and why.

[livejournal.com profile] overheads gave me Ace Attorney, House, Death Note, and Inception. :D

Ace Attorney: This is tricky... There's so many interesting and complex characters, like Lang, Ini, Dahlia, Klavier, and Matt... I'm gonne be predictable here and say Miles Edgeworth. Not just because he's extremely good-looking, or because his game is one of the best ones, but because he's such an interesting character, and it's really fun to watch him grow from cute little justice-loving kid to stuck-up sexy Bratworth to stuck-up walled-off adult to mature and more vulnerable adult. Also, he's is totally closeted for Phoenix.

House: Wilson, easily. I love how he's such an enabler for House, but seems to want what's best for him, as well. And their banter together is one of the best parts of the show. They're one of the few couples where I not only want them to get together, but legitimately think they were intended to. Also, I am a complete fangirl for Robert Sean Leonard. XD

Death Note: Mello. off the top of my head, he's incredibly sexy. But deeper down, he seems like a very complicated person. Think about it. All his life, he's been trying to become the best he can, so that he can finally become what he'd always wanted (the new L), but it's never been enough. It must destroy him inside to never quite measure up, which is why, when he had his dreams utterly and completely dashed, he left. he had nothing else to stay for, because that was the one thing he'd been there for. And then, at the end, it seems like he knew he would die if he kidnapped Takada. But he did it anyways, because could tell that it was the only way to defeat Kira, showing just how intelligent he is, and how noble. And him with Matt, they clearly are not open people, so the fact that they each care about each other so much shows just how close they really are, romantically or not. Also, I have to give Mello massive props for his somehow joining the Mafia and become a total BAMF (with the world's best wardrobe). ♥

Inception: A tie between Arthur, Eames, and Robert. So I'll just explain all three. Arthur seems like he not just wants control, but needs it. I feel like something's happened in his past which had him in a situation in which he felt like he had no control, so he reacted by controlling everything possible in his life. Also, he's a complete badass GQMF. And Eames... God, Eames is just so charismatic, and he's a total badass in their job, but not in the same way as Arthur, in a much more sensual way (that blonde was HOT). And I feel like he's been in love with Arthur for forever, but something happened in the past (a one-night stand? A drunken... thing? A failed relationship?) which drove them apart, and they were both hurt by it, but while Arthur reacted by shutting himself inside, and coming off as cold to Eames, Eames reacted by pushing down the feelings so he could stay as close to him as possible, even though nothing could come of it, because he wanted to be near him. And the flirting is just his way of showing his feelings without having to get serious about things, because then he could be hurt. Robert, he seems like such a complicated character, for which I have to give major kudos to Cillian Murphy for portraying him so well. He seems like all his life, he's never been allowed to be who he wants to be; he's had his life controlled by his father, and he's never had a chance to be himself. This is why the inception actually feels like it made his life better, rather than destroying it.

01/30: List all the Pixar movies you’ve seen 

02/30: Your favorite Pixar movie

For some reason, my favorite is the sweet-and-simple A Bug's Life. It's so cute, but it also manages to carry that "be yourself" message incredibly well. And the bugs are adorable.

10 Things I Hate About You. Watching this movie brings out the JGL fangirl hopeless romantic in me, and I always get that warm, fuzzy feeling. I especially love Heath Ledger's singing scene. :)

Day 01- The best movie you saw during the last year

Day 02 - The most underrated movie

I'm not sure if this movie is underrated, per se, but it's certainly under-known. Once, the 2007 movie about two musicians, captures romance in such a beautiful, heartbreakingly real way, and the music is gorgeous. I really wish more people knew about it and watched it. (Also, it may be one of the few movies in which I'm glad Cillian Murphy wasn't cast.)

Day 01- the best movie you saw during the last year

Easily Lars and the Real Girl. To quickly sum it up, it's a movie about a social-phobic guy in a small town who falls in love will a sex doll. But it's not creepy. This comes nowhere near describing this movie, however. It's a great reflection on love and friendship and family. And the acting is amazing. Ah, I love indie movies... Here, check out the trailer:

Day 01 - Your favorite song
Day 02 - Your least favorite song

Day 03 - A song that makes you happy

Once again, a (500) Days of Summer reference. This time, it's You Make My Dreams, by Hall & Oates. Not only is the song itself incredibly infectious, but, having seen the movie scene, every time I hear this song I want to launch into cute, happy dancing. (Clip below for reference.)

As all of you should know, if there's a meme bandwagon to be had, I will jump on it. So, without further ado:

Day 01 - Your favorite song

I'd have to say that, for all I love bandom, my absolute favorite song has to be Us, by Regina Spektor. Yeah, I know, I heard it through (500) Days Of Summer, but I fell in love with this song. I'm even going to use it for an audition for a musical in the spring. She really encompasses all that I love about indie pop.
