You! Me! Dancing!

Great name for a great song. It's by Los Campesinos. Go check it out. Now.

It was recommended by my lil bro - brother from another mother, that is. He be cool. I'll call him Chonny, after the awesome youtuber, as that's something we bond over. JELLYFISH PRIDE MTHRFKR.

"It is a truth universally acknowledged...

...that a single man in possession of a good fortune must be in want of a wife."

If you know where that is from, and you should otherwise you've been living under a rock for the past century or something, then we are now friends. HUG! ... No? Okaayyyy...

Anyhoo, I just quoted the opening lines of the great Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen as there is something exciting happening to do with it. ... Ready? It's being made into a vlog on YouTube, produced (I think) by the amazing Hank Green of the awesome VlogBrothers. I know, right? So exciting.

There have been about 5 episodes already, I think, and the new one comes out... today, actually. Hmmm, must go watch that later...

Anyway, vlogger is obviously Lizzie Bennet and she vlogs in her bedroom with the help of her friend Charlotte. She has two sisters in the vlog (instead of four like in the books), Jane (the "loveliest person you'll ever meet") and Lydia (the "whore/slut"), as well as an overbearing mother, and a more relaxed, thoughtful father. There is also Bing Lee (this is the character Bingley in the books [obvs] but I love the way they've twisted that around) and he is a rich doctor (I think... I really should have done my research...) who has just moved nearby. Of course, a William Darcy (first name is Fitzwilliam in the books) tags along, and that's just about where the last episode left off.

If you enjoy P&P and vlogging, then I think you'd really like this. Of course, it's not for everyone, but in my opinion, it's a great idea, and the actors are pretty good!

 aaaand a lovely picture of Colin Firth as Mr Darcy... love him in this.

If you go and watch it, I hope you like it and I shall see you all soon!

Avengers... ASSEMBLE!

Saw the Avengers film today. Mind? BLOWN. Srsly.

Well, yes, in my opinion, it was extremely good. I've seen all of the individual films as well (Iron Man, Iron Man 2, Thor, Captain America, etc.) and I didn't know if this was gonna top any of those, as I love Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr... *drool*), but boy, was I proven wrong.

So much action, and so witty as well, which was pleasantly surprising. Robert Downey Jr said in an interview that he was afraid that no one would get the jokes, but my fam and I were laughing, trust me. Sometimes, we were the only ones laughing... AWKS.

Basically, I loved it, and if you've seen and liked the films preceding this one, then I highly recommend that you see it. In my opinion, it was amazing.

Hopefully I haven't hyped this up too much so that if you DO see it, you actually think it's not that good... Oh well. I think it's awesome. So there. *sticks tongue out in childish way*

Here are some lovely images of the beautiful cast (I say beautiful because, seriously, have you SEEN Scarlett Johansson? Phwoar. O.o).

Robert Downey Jr as Tony Stark/Iron Man

Chris Evans as Steve Rogers/Captain America

Scarlett Johansson as Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow and Chris Hemsworth as Thor

Mark Ruffalo as Bruce Banner/The Hulk and Jeremy Renner as Clint Barton/Hawkeye

Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury

See it and love it.

Shine, baby, shine. ∆

"...and that's a wrap!"

Today was the last day of filming for my final art piece - exam is tomorrow and I'm actually kinda excited - 5 hours of straight editing without having to worry about anything else? I'd class that in the 'Priceless' category of those cheesy adverts.

Here are some shots I took - none of them are really gonna be in the actual film as these are only still images, but I think they capture the atmosphere pretty well:

Again, the last one is my favourite :)

Por otra vez (again, in spanish [brain still in español from mi examen de oral ayer]), hope you like them!

Shine, baby, shine. ∆

p.s. This blog is going quite well for me, so far... then again, it's only been two days. Fingers crossed it stays this way...

Sooner rather than later

So when I said I'll put up the pictures soon, I meant within-the-next-few-minutes soon. Yeah, I'm prompt like dat.

These are actually still images of a moving film projected over Helena's face. I think it looks pretty coooool...

(^ I changed the colour of her eyes in this one from brown to green - I've always thought piercing green eyes are beautiful - even though she doesn't need it... *mumble stupid pretty biatch mumble*)

Hope you like these!

I'll be uploading more stuff tomorrow as I'm doing another bout of filming for my exam on Monday in which I'm editing the whole thing. I'll probably post the end result on YouTube and then link it back here.

Oh, and I had my Spanish oral exam today. Kinda flopped, not gonna lie, but I'm hoping for the best. *fingers crossed*

Shine, my lovelies, shine. ∆

Projector Fun

So I was taking some test shots for my final piece film, and here's what came out. For the real thing, I'm going to just use black and white films of trees and leaves etc. but I got a tad excited with the projector... What can I say? It's fuuuunnnn.....

 For these three, I used this artist on deviantart's image 'Free' - you should go check him out; his art is INSANE. His username is greno89 :)

This last one is mah fav.

Hope you enjoy them!
I'll be uploading some images of the actual shots for the real thing, with my subject/one of my best friends (I'll call her Helena [middle name]) in them soon.

Shine, baby, shine. ∆

First post stress

So it's the first post after the "intro" (imagine the hand gesture with it [I've always thought it looks like some bunnies with freaky-moving ears...]) and... I have no idea what to post that's good. But who said this was gonna be a good blog? NO ONE. MWA HA HA.

Actually, there are a lot of things I could talk about. Like my current art final piece, which is a film, that I have an exam for on Monday. Or, how much I'm stressing about my Spanish oral exam tomorrow (which, actually, isn't as much as it should be. Which, if you've ever been in school, would let you know makes me stress more. Oh, school, you devil you.). Or, how I found out recently that Condé Nast just set up a fashion course here in London, which I'm thinking of doing the summer one of in, well, summer, after my last year of school, and before uni.

BUT, Imma talk about what I'm watching right now instead, which is Two Broke Girls. Great program. Just great. Gloriously witty, I'm telling you. (No sarcasm here btw)
Here's a quote for you: "If I was a lesbian, she would be the last les I'd be in." *mwah* BELLISSIMA.
Oh, and the love interest in the first episode of one of the girls, Max, is FOINE.

Here are some piccy-piccies:

with Kat Dennings as Max Black, and Beth Behrs as Caroline Channing

 and Noah Mills as Robbie (HOT STUFF O.o)

Go watch it. In my opinion, it's worth it. 

Shine, baby, shine. ∆

And here we go again...

So, I am TERRIBLE at this blogging thing. I've tried so many times, it's unbelievable. It's not that my blog is bad... (though that's up for debate) it's just that I don't have the freakin' time!

I'm currently doing my AS levels here in sunny (sarcasm [you'll find out I use it a lot. Yes, I am the lowest form of wit, I know.) London, England. That's equivalent to a senior in America, I think. (I'm in love with America btw - love me a juicy crunch of that Big Apple). So, I have TONS OF WORK. Work that I shall continue to complain about, frequently, just to give a heads up.

ANYWAYS, I am going to be cliché and stereotypical, and say I love fashion, and art, and design, and everything inbetween. I'd love to do an art foundation course here in England after I finish school - heading for the magazine route? I hope so.

I'll probably be posting regular blog-y things: my outfits, new purchases, nail art, make-up (all from yours truly, of course), but also things I'm interested in, or have recently fangasmed over, such as books, youtube clips, various photos I've taken, excursions with friends and fam, antics with my sister (we're super close, and super weird together. Seriously, put us in a room together alone, and we will end up hysterically laughing every time.), ya know, da ush (the beginning of 'usually'... don't really know how to spell that properly...).
I may even post thing about my personal life... leaving everyone anonymous, of course, with letters as names? I dunno, still unsure about that. My life is so boring right now. (*desperation for a boyfriend peeking out...* GET BACK IN THERE YOU MONSTER.)

Hopefully this blog will be more successful than before... I wanna make it look pweettyyy too... I'm not familiar with this format, so bear with me, if you're still here! I hope to entertain/amuse/'make you feel better your life isn't mine' with my life, aaaand... yeah. I suck with outros. Like charlieissocoollike. (If you don't know who that is, go youtube it. Serious love for that boy. Lives near me too. *ponders stalking probability...* No, no, no, too weird.... Or is it? O.o)

And, before we end, I must say.... Shine, baby, shine. *waves goodbye* but see you soon, hopefully! ∆
