Classic Movies on TCM Alerts!!


Attention Classic Movies Fans, TCM is showing a great line of Classic Movies on Friday Night

First up one  was one of my retropect movies. Double Indemnity and the others movies are Mildred Pierce and The Postman Always Rings Twice.

Okay, I already talk about Double Indemnity.

Mildred Pierce is about a woman who works her but off taking care of her two daughters after her husband leaves them and having to deal with ungrateful teenage daughter. Joan Crawford rocked in this movie and she won an oscar for this movie also.

The Postman Always Rings Twice is a woman plots with her lover to killed her older husband. This movie rocks too because Lana Turner and John Garfield sizzles together on the scenes

Feeling Down

Why do people take other people/things for granted?

*Sighs* I wish more people would say thank-you when you do things for them. Now I don't mind doing things for people because I always had the need to help people since I was young, but I wish it could just received some gratitude for my kindness. I'm not looking for some high praise worship, but just a simple thank-you is good enough for me. I swear that  some of the young generation are growing-up being very full of themselves and not thinking of others and don't realize that in just a second, their love ones and personal things can be taken from them at a drop of a hat. Yet, there are some younger people that are very kind and don't take people or things for granted. I hope there are more people who realize the when you do good things for others, good things will come back to you. Okay I'm over my rant now.

My strange love for non canon parings in fandom/fanfiction.


Over the years, I been a reader of so many fanfiction parings from fandom. One thing I notice about of all the fanfiction parings I enjoy to read about, almost all the pariings were alternate or non cannon couples. This was the case if the fandom they belong to had ended or still go on today.

 


I believe my love for alternate couples started with Storm and Wolverine from X-men in 1998 to Tangeline today. I was never a big fan of the canon couples. I always found them either boring or their story was already told from canon so why would I want to sit there and read about them so more in fanfiction?!

Though Storm and Wolverine was the first alt. paring I read, my very first love for alt. paring really came from the Sailor Moon universe in the form of Sailor Mercury and General Zoisite.Only the Manga version of them, don't even bother with the anime version of SM, it will make you head hurt. :LOL:  These two are shown as my icon if you want to see what they look like. In the Manga, they was only hinted at as a couple from a picture at the end of the 1st arc of Sailor Moon Manga (the pictue below). But the picture was very powerful and cause a huge library of fanfictions about them and the other saliors and generals.

Aren't they cute!

Of course they aren't written about as much as they were in the past, but I do find a great story of them every now and then.

Another alt. paring I begin to love to death was Megumi Takani & Aoshi Shinomori form Rurouni Kenshin. And of course this  is where my user name Megumi can from. Oh I can go on and on about Megumi and Aoshi. This is another alt. paring that have such interesting beginnings. Megumi was captured and held by Aoshi and his men, because she was a force to make drugs by this punk who control Aoshi and his men. The punk was able to control Aoshi and his men due to the fact that Aoshi needed a job that would included his men because Aoshi's men was known as freak and they just couldn't work any job even in Meiji Japan. This was a great story line arc in the Rurouni Kenshin universe.  I believed I enjoyed these two so much because they were so more matured and real than the people they were supposed to be paired with in the RK universe. Picture of them together.

 

 Like I said before, they were interesting.


As you can see, I'm was a big fan of anime/manga when I was younger. Another loved I have was video games None was bigger than Street Fighter II.  Which brings to talked about another favorite non couple from series,Ryu and Chun Li. I still don't know to this day why the makers of Street Fighter didn't go ahead and put these two together. Their so call background was similar and they just fit together. But all these years, Capcom still choose to keep them separated. Maybe it is for the best. Anyway, here are the kicking ass duo.

 

All the non-couples really helped me deal with what happen to Tangie at OWLTL.  The whole situation about what happen to Tangie was just fuck-up on all levels, but I was able to deal what happen to them faster than other. And in a crazy way, this may have been a blessing in  disguise. Yes, I'm still bitter that we didn't get Tangeline played on our screen, yet we all know how soaps do couples. I just know that those fools would have runied Tangie to all lenghts before it was all said and done.  So I'm really enjoying seeing their story told in fanfiction from great writers like Black and Reese.  But I still got to ask....  How in the hell you let this go!!!

  

 

At the end of the day, I just a fan and I wanted to share some of my favorite parings that shape the way I view other parings or couples in fanfiction I read today.

I be with you until the end.

I actually graduated from my school!!!!


Oh my, I finally earn my BA in Accounting from University of Phoenix Online on Monday.  Yes! I started on this mission in 1998, but left school on 2001 to get my mind straight and focus on other things. I decided to return to school in 2005 and now my time had come and my mission has been completed.  It been such a long process and I can't believed it's over. Well, not finish yet, I have to fax a form to get my diploma.  One of the pit-falls for getting a degree from online. Then my silly self decided to sign-up for getting a MBA in Busniess Finance starting in the end of February. I was going to wait until April to start on my Masters, but those hype men.. um Academic Workers talk some good game and I thought it may be better to start sooner than later. Beside, it just for a year and a half. Not bad at all if you think about it.

As for now, I'm going to relax for a week or two, then start looking at the job force. Gawd, that is going to be scary, but I'm up for the challenge. :)

Classic Movies Retropect part 7 and 8


Oh goody, I'm here again to talk about my retropects. This time I take to the land of Westerns and Action and Adventure. Yes, I love westerns. I don't know when I started watching them, but let one be on TV then more that likely I'm going let it the channel stay on the movie. And who doesn't love a great action and adventure movie every now and then!

The Searchers:

The Searchers is a 1956 epic Western film directed by John Ford, based on the 1954 novel by Alan Le May, which tells the story of Ethan Edwards, a bitter, middle-aged loner and Civil War veteran played by John Wayne, who spends years looking for his abducted niece.

Yup, a movie about the Duke, but this is a different type of movie for the Duke. When you watch this movie, you are going to either  hate or at least dislike John Wayne's character Ethan until the end of the movie. He was dirty, racist, and just awful within the movie. Yet one needs to understand why Ethan Edwards was the way he was in the movie that wasn't really reveal in the movie in words, but in actions and movements along. Great movie in terms of story telling and vision.

The Adventures of Robin Hood

 

The Adventures of Robin Hood is an American swashbuckler film released in 1938 and directed by Michael Curtiz and William Keighley. Filmed in Technicolor, the picture stars Errol Flynn, Olivia de Havilland, Basil Rathbone, Claude Rains, Patric Knowles, Eugene Pallette, and Alan Hale.

I so love this version of Robin Hood. It was amasterpiece of adventure, romance and beauty. Plus it was flashy, action pack and just a joy to watch. Errol Flynn was just too hot for words. He being Robin Hood was just it for me. :LOL:  The actors are marvelous and the story  was awesome for Robin Hood that is.

Stormy

Um, why me?

Gawd, why me!!

This is what is up with me the last few days. I had to end up going to the EM and get two shots for my tonsillitis. Thank-God that the shots work. I'm doing so much better except for my tastebuds are all mess-up. I hope I get to taste what I'm eating real soon. Now to my major problems. First my laptop is  fuck-up. Right now, I'm typing normally, but any minute now my computer will act-up and I will not be able to type anything until the crazy period is over, then everything is back to normal. That sucks when you got projects to due for your online school. Speaking of school, I just found out that my team members may have bail-out on me about our project that is due on Monday. I been so sick and trying to caught-up with my own work at school, that I haven't been paying attention to my team message board until lastnigjht. If I end up doing this Powerpoint all by myself, then I'm going to be one piss off girl. Luckly the Powerpoint is easy. It just talking about High Blood Pressure and Colon Cancer, but this is suppose to be a TEAM PROJECT!! All this drama right before I only have a week of class left, then I get my degree!!!. If I do decide to get my masters, I'm so waiting two months after I get my degree. This road to getting my degree in Accounting has been HELL, but well worth it. Wish me luck on finishing my last project, with or without the help of my team members. Slackers!!!!!!

I be with you until the end.

I had Tonsillitis and it's the worst feeling ever.

I mean I was fine Tuesday night, but I felt that the back of my throat was a little painful. Yet I didn't pay it no attention to it, because I'm used to getting sore throat and that wasn't what a sore throat felt like. Wednesday comes and I got a mild fever. Well I been through a fever to so biggie there either. But then Wednesday night  came and everything when down hill after that. I mean I had swollen lymph glands in neck, a fever, it was very painful to shallow everything but cold things and I couldn't talk at all because throat was so swollen. Don't even talk about eating anything. I haven't eating a solid meal since Tuesday night and I tried to eat some soups, but the soups just make my throat hurt worst. So I been drinking  plenty of cold water, juice, and powerade and it's been doing the trick. I have been getting rest, but it's hard when your throat is so painful that it keeps you up at night. But it is getting better and I hope to be completely health sometime next week. I do find all this funny since I'm talking a health class right now. I wasn't taking care of myself and I plan to do so for now on.  So I just wanted everybody to know what been going on with me  these last few days and I'm so much better than I was Wed. and Thurs but still a little under the weather. 

Lord forbid for any of you to ever get  tonsilltis, but if you  any of you do, get plenty of rest if you can,drink plenty of fluids, jello, and ice cream. Ice cream has been my life saver these last few days. Actually I need to get some more too. Hmm....

On the road again......


Well, I'm off to my hometown of Columbus, MS this weekend. I wish it was for some good news and only there to see my family and friends, but I'm going back to be at a friend of the family funeral. So I be gone tomorrow afternoon and be back sometime Sunday. I'm hoping the next time I go home, it will be for good things and not sadness.

Btw, since I'm going to be gone tomorrow, I would love to wishzxfactor and my dear sister a Happy Birthday tomorrow. I hope the both of you have a great and wonderful Birthday!!
