Ooohh, I really do wonder how many foreigner have you dated XD how do you even bump into such specimens loooool

Well... 4 foreigners and 3 locals..so yeah, you can say that's my type hahaha. I like it so it's ok :P

Yep, I got to a performing arts school called Artsed (arts educational), U.K. Is a good place to study cos they offer so much of these school, and some are even for free like state schools, which still have dance and acting! Though if you want a high level ones it's best to go to private school :3.

Wooooow a true artist on the making, how nice, yoga and dancing, you'll be a fine woman when you grow up..and I just felt like I am 90 years old O_o

Ahah I get you :D I used not be able to hold on so when a cool new anime came out I would literally sit there and check for new episodes like ever 2 hours XD a perfect example is kill la kill, like when it came out I was sooooooooo SO excited I just could not wait lol. Which almost killed me when I got to waiting for the last episode, much suspense ahaha.

Some suspense is good for the heart..kill la kill... is it good? I've been trying to decide whether to watch it or not... happens to me a lot.. sighs I need a proper "To watch" list backed up by experts like you and Anon

@ Utoptia

Hey, while we're at it! I actually finally re-watched “Mulholland Drive” recently...
Still like it very much. Still think that Naomi Watts is incredibly gorgeous! ^^ But I still don't fully get it either... ;)
It really is an awesome movie though.

There's a huge and extremly well written and in-depth analysis of Mulholland Drive I consider everyone who watched the movie has to read, but unfortinately, it's in french. And I honestly don't have enough bravery to translate even the half. Anyway, Mulholland Drive is a movie you feel before you understand. The mesmerizing and oneiric beauty emanating from the main couple is a sufficient reason to be crazy about this masterpiece.

This is a movie that needs, or rather, must be watched several times to start to understand it. I'm too lazy to translate the post I mentioned above, but know that the first two hours of the movie is a dream, Diane Selwyn's dream, and it's built according to the freudian theory of a dream. The last half hour of the movie is the [final] Diana's return to the reality. She wakes up, and we can deduce she killed Camilla [or rather, she paid someone to murder her] out of jealousy, because, both in the real world and in her dream, Diana was madly in love with Camilla, but when the latter cheated on her with the director [director Diana takes her revenge on in her dream], she just goes insane. The whole dream she had was an idealized conception of the world, of the life she longed to have, but the guilt she feels is too heavy it turns her dream into a nightmare. She can't even run away from the realiy in her dream, Camilla's absence is even worse than her betrayal, Diana will kill herself and join her beloved. In the end, in this schizophrenic love story, Love has triumphed over hatred.

And if you think my analysis was "deep", you're mistaken. I didn't even sum up this movie correctly. Each scene, each shot of the movie deserves to be thoroughly analised, there isn't one unnecessary second, each shot tells so much things, that's why I consider this movie as the greatest movie of all time. If only you could read french I'd have linked you the concerned post..

And don't leave this place! (๑•́ ₃ •̀๑)
Utoptia sounded so mean there for no reason... T_T

I have to be worthy of the title of Jerk I've been bestowed upon ;)

All I can say is honestly cos I'm probably a kid, mullholand drive was sexy XD I loved both actresses and I didn't really look into the whole man behind the trash can and other ideas because I'm not smart enough! :D but overall I really liked it.

Yep, well for me I REALLY loved kill la kill. Remember being obsessed with one of the openings and in general this anime was pretty much my crack ahahahah. I also loved how it didn't really use the pretty pretty anime style but the battles and everything still mesomrsied me @A@ and naturally I'm a ryuko satsuki shipper, and I'm sure if you watch it you will be too >wo

Awww Neko-chan don't say you aren't smart, that movie, well that director, it's really like "ehh..what,why??who,how!!?" but it's a great movie, I overall enjoy WTF stuff, either anime, movies, books, so maybe I'm used to it.

Ahh we got a pervert here! you liked it cos of the hot couple! :P

The "ehh...what,why??who,how!!?" Is pretty much what I was saying out loud throughout the whole movie, especially at the end of course!

Agreed, Kill la Kill is a fucking epic anime, just like its predecessor Tengen Toppa GUREN LAGANN. And you possibly can't root for something else than Ryuko x Satsuki. Talking about anime, I recently watched Nodame Cantabile and it was very pleasant, would recommend. The classical music aspect is a big plus to anyone who enjoys it [yes, like me].

I've seen those in doujin..ok Kill La Kill added to list, already watched TTGL.. I THINK, unless I'm mistaking it with other with an oddly similar name

Yes, Rinne no Lagrange, so it's not that one, 2 more animes on my list.

Yep! Also yeah Guren Lagann is a must to watch too because it was also really good and my the same studio! I was really in love with both those anime ahaha. Also I see :D I think it's that anime about the musicians? In that case I'm pretty sure it's on my very long to watch list so it's definitely coming my way :3!

Pussy ! If you want to take a step further in David Lynch's universe, then go Watch Eraserhead (his first movie). Wouldn't recommend it to anyone here though, no one would like it.
On the other side, the elephant man, also a Lynch movie (his second one), is something I'd blindly recommend to anyone, if you guys haven't seen it yet, then :

That quote from Merrick is something I'll never forget : I am not an elephant! I am not an animal! I am a human being! I am a man!. Makes me want to watch it again now..

Speaking of the elephant man! :0 that's really interesting actually, so I might watch it not only because it sounds interesting but for research perposes! :D it's such a weird confidence but in year 11 in drama class we actually studied about the elephant man and like acted out scene on how his condition effected his life, it was a really deep Experience actually! I don't remember the name him now but we explored all sorts of stuff from jus the uncomfort he got from simply sitting :(

Also lol, you said pussy....XD we're all pussy cats here so it makes perfect sense actully lolollol

Alright, I usually tend to try to not give out any detail's about my personal life when I'm on this site, But I'm just going to rant for a bit here.

There's this girl at my highschool who's a straight up asshole to me & some good friends of mine, She just has this obnoxious attitude where she just insult's almost anyone and try's to get under people's skin. Now she doesn't really faze me, (Because I've been bullied before and now I give absolutely zero shit's when she talk's shit about me) But she does push my friend's buttons. In fact, Yesterday in 7th period she pissed off my friend of so much that he eventually snapped and they nearly got into a fight. Long story short, Both the girl & my friend didn't show up to school the next day, I'm guessing that they probably got suspended. But here's the thing, This girl (like most bullies) doesn't care about school one little bit. She just come's to school to fuck around & drag people down to her level. Messing with me is one thing, But messing with my friends is going to fucking far. So once their suspension is done (If they even got suspended) It's now going to be on my friends personal record. He works hard in school to get good grade's and now his record is tainted because of this asshole ? That is some BS right there, Since this girl doesn't care, she's just going to do the same thing to other hard working students that earned their grade. And because other student's have short temper's (Unlike me) She's just going to take advantage of that fact and push other student's buttons. Well I hope she messes with the wrong person and learns how to stop when other's say stop, And I hope she learns the hard way.

There, Finally done. Just needed to get that out. I was having a little bit of trouble going through with this rant. But I figured it would be a waste to not post it.

I've never been bullied, and I had the luck to study in a private high-school with a decent community, but bullying is something I strongly despise and wouldn't tolerate whether it's me, a friend or a perfect stranger who's getting bullied. Given your statement, I'm assuming talking to her can't lead anywhere. Have you tried to talk to your teachers, to your parents, to see if there is something they can do for her case, or to at least not penalize that friend of yours ?

I'm going to get stones thrown at by saying this, but if none of the things suggested above end up working, you should, quoting your own words, teach her how to stop the hard way. You can't accept your friends or yourself being bullied because it's just unacceptable, and that's something she must learn too.
As for now, you should really try to discuss about this matter with your teachers, they're the most likely to effectively help you, and possibly fix this whole situation.

I don't have much info about the whole situation. All I know is that she started shit with him and now they're both in trouble. My parent's told me that I should let the teacher's fix the situation. I tried discussing it with my teacher's and they don't really want to talk about it. I'll just have to discuss it with my friend when he gets back (And I don't know when that will happen). Another friend of mine said that if he doesn't come back by tomorrow then he's probably suspended. And if that's true then she'll have to deal with me when she get's back.

This is fairly irrelevant to the actual topic at hand but: This should stand double if your friends are the ones doing the bullying as well. I had an issue with that back in highschool with my group of friends. Despite the fact most of them had been bullied throughout school themselves they decided to start bullying someone else just for being a bit different to them. Finally stopped when I lost my temper with their bullshit and made my view of the matter perfectly clear to them. It's despicable and anyone who takes part in bullying is human waste.

Was just listening to classical music again.

Like how in the world these guys came up with such extraordinary and beyond words music while being 2 centuries behind?

Like how?

Don't know the artist... so I can't give any background information either. Not my kind of music, I fear...

Let me make a list for you, there's a "no H8" sticker on a skateboard, one of the girls have a "venus" symbol with something written on it on her jacket, at least 4 look as gay as it gets and then the flag yes.

I never see that kinda girls here, maybe in UK it's normal :P
Ah I mostly listen to metal, medieval folk (Schandmaul!!), gothwave and industrial BUT , for gym I like that and wild swing stuff . :)
