Roma is in da house!

Thanks, Dad (:

The New Project

So I'm working on an Obviously Kidding Productions thingy right now with Martin, but it's all still top secret.
The only thing I can tell you is that it's going to be very, very different from what we wanted to do before, and it's also going to be a lot better.
And I can't even begin to tell you how excited I am.
This is gonna rock.

New Max Payne Stills

IMDb has new stills for Max Payne!

I'd say they look about 63% crappy, which is okay, considering it's a game adaption with Mila Kunis.
I can't even be bothered to put up a link for her name, that's how boring she is. Yawn.

Well, I'm going to watch this movie willy-nilly, because it's Max Payne, so it doesn't matter that much (money-wise... emotion-wise it's gonna be a disaster!).

Max Payne opens on the 17th of October in the US and the UK (will I be in Scotland then? I don't remember. That'd be bitchin', though!), on the 23rd of October in Germany, on the 15th of October in Egypt, on the 16th of October in Hungary and on the 26th November in Belgium.

In 2008.

Just so you know.

I've just found the trailer for The Informers.

This is making me seriously hysterical. It looks so, so amazing! Jon Foster (Graham), Winona Ryder (Cheryl) and Mel Raido (Bryan Metro) look especially good. There's no opening date for either the USA nor for Germany, but there's nothing in the world that could spoil this moment. (:

I'm not taking Religion class in school anymore

Uh, yeah. I don't know. It was a thing. My plan was too full, and I wanted to vote off one class, at it was either Religion, Philosophy, History or Social Sciences. And Religion took the axe. No pun intended.

I really liked the teacher I had in that class, though. He was sort of extraordinary - not always in a good way (he was always later, I mean always always).
I'm an atheist, but I'm not sure if that's the reason I stopped taking the class (after all, my Religion class was more like History - it was more about events than the actual belief).

I'm really excited to see how that's gonna pay off. I mean I had a kind of to and fro with my belief before realizing that, for me, believing in God (or any gods, for that matter) isn't so much about wanting there to be a God who takes care of everything, and more about actually believing in one.
And I didn't really believe, but just hoped (for some time at least).

The Triumph Of Caeser

So I'm reading this really amazing book, called The Triumph Of Caesar (duh!) by Steven Saylor.

I'm all into ancient Rome. I mean, that's my far my favorite era. It started when I watched Rome, that HBO show a couple of years back. And the character I was most fascinated by was Marcus Junius Brutus. He was played by Tobias Menzies, and he was a really dramatic, suffering and ill-fated person., and amazingly well portrayed.
So then I found out that the Rome Brutus was completely fictionalized. It kind of broke my heart, and I made a break from reading Ellis and O'Connor and Eugenides (not bragging) and read two books by Robert Harris, Pompeii (which was about the eruption of the Vesuvius) and Imperium(a Marcus Tullius Cicero biography). And Brutus wasn't in either of them. So that was sad (but those were amazing books!).
And then, the week before last, when I was in England, I found The Triumph and bought it, not even really hoping for Brutus to be in it. And guess what? He totally plays a kind of important part in the book. Guess again. He's pretty arrogant and sort of snobbish, smart, nonetheless, but not the Brutus I liked so much.
I mean, I frikking love him now.

So anyway.

I'm totally too old to fall in love with musicians or whatever. It's Brutus now. He's my historical crush.

Oh, and watch Rome if you can!

It's Ashley Jensen's birthday! Yay!

Maggie turned 39 today!

"I don't think you are."

Love her!

RIP Bernie Mac

Actor Bernie Mac died at the age of 50 (from pneumonia).

I love this picture of him because he just had the craziest, most uplifting smile.

You'll me missed, Bernie!

Labor pains

After 14 hours of babysitting two eight-year olds and 42 hours of living with a fifteen-month old baby, I’ve reconsidered my plans of ever having children on my own.
To stand a single week with them they’d have to be gagged.

Sometimes it makes me so, so angry to see parents spoiling (or un-soiling) their kids. I guess it’s a little unfair, but what has to happen that a child turns into such a monster.
I mean, they haven’t even passed their first decade, and they’re already making people suffer on purpose.
I’ll just relay on my mother’s info, that I wasn’t like that (come on, pretty much every mother says that) and hope that, shall my day of reproduction actually arrive, I’ll do a better job. Or be smart enough not to get knocked up.
Working on that.

Ironically enough, today the article greeting me on Blogger.com is (dadada) Blogger Babies! Yay!
