YAY! I'm updating my journal again =) Well I'm feeling better now that I have my passport, I have a small sense of freedom, even though I have no car


Since I haven't had a car, I've been getting a lot of vinyls ripped so I have the music while I'm in europe. I'm also looking into getting a flight there via a carrier service. If you know anything about this website or used it before please let me know: http://www.aircourier.org. I'm thinking of going with them.

In more news, I talked to my webhost and he said that I might be able to have my own shoutcast server on my website! This means that I will be mixing more, doing more live sets, and having more mixes available on my website. My website is also being redone professionally by Zero-Five.net. They're really good with Flash and PHP and if you need an affordable yet professionally looking website, look into them.

As for me? I'm still holding onto my job and trying to get everything sorted for Europe. Yes, it does look pretty definite now, especially that I have my passport. I'm really scared, but excited at the same time. Richard is a great person and I'll be able to stay with his family until me and him get a place together. Europe has dance clubs (That play dance music!), a better economy, more jobs, higher payrates, better government... I could go on and on about why I'm looking forward to visiting/moving. I will miss quite a few people though by leaving... I managed to get out of my nest, stay out for a couple of years, then came back into the nest =( So finally, time to get out again. I just hope I can have enough money... stupid foreign exchange rates.

I can't really think of anything else significant. I saw War of the Worlds. It was pretty good until it ended. The movie seemed most interested in showing people die then actually moving the plot along (and spending a third of the movie in a basement is just absurd!) Then again, I don't like most alien movies, so that might be why too.

Well I'm off. I'll talk to you all later =)

Yo, xkagerou here! And I forget, is it London that you're moving to? Actually it doesn't really matter because anything is better than Texas (as functional of a city as Houston seems). I'm glad your guy remained steadfast in his commitment and is willing to let you live with him. And he has a supportive family too, another less thing to worry about! so yeah, what did happen in the end of War of the worlds? It was so abrupt and they kept showing protozoa floating around the screen. I guess microorganisms owned the aliens hahaha. and Dakota Fanning remains creepy as usual, never ceasing to scare me with her precocious acting. Weird kid.

Oh so good to hear from you!!! Why aren't you online much anymore. But yeah, I'm glad the offer didn't change thoughout the months. I'm moving to Bradford West Yorkshire, England, which is north of London... about 5 hours away by train. Besides, London is expensive.

And that's one of the main reasons for not like War of the Worlds much, the ending wasn't explained at all. I had to ask someone what happened and because they read the book they knew. They said it was obvious, but then again, they read the book, lol

** SPOILER **










So what happened is all the aliens ended up dying from human diseases because they didn't build up an immune system to it like humans had already built. That was related to the reference the cop made when he said the tripod went out of control and slammed into the building is because the alien inside was dying. And yes, the ending made NO sense until I knew it. I think this should've been explained better in the movie. The movie seemed more concerned with showing massive amounts of people dying, oh well. Richard loved it XD

Pleh, obvious my ass! But now that you explain it, it makes more sense. Man, the people didn't even have to do anything to fight off the aliens, they only succeeded in getting their population wiped out. And the alien invasion took place only in america? (haha, another reason why you should go to europe :p) I believe my favorite part of the movie is actually watching the citizens die (morbid, kind of fun). It was interesting how the aliens used their blood as fertilizer for their red plants too.

oh yeah, I forget London's the 2nd most expensive city right now. *dreams of going to tokyo also gets smacked down* Hope you have fun in bradford then! we'll miss you from the anime conventions! :

Re: possible spoilers!

Yeah I know. I didn't really like the movie at all, and most of it just grossed me out because it was so morbid. And the whole thing about the red vine in the book, it's just a red plant. It's not made of blood. But of course Hollywood had to make it more gory so it's made of blood. I mean why would the aliens have a native plant made out of human blood when they have no humans on Mars? haha, makes no sense. But hollywood doesn't care.

And yeah London is really expensive, that's why I'll be in Bradford =)
