Request granted ;P update already..nice of me to grant Dilla's request ;P

It's been quite a while since I wrote about what I was watching/reading. Did a movie marathon yesterday with Baby. Managed to catch Fantastic 4 [not bad] and Amityville Horror[boring..was yawning thru out the movie. Baby too..]. Watched Initial D last week with the usual people..I like the racing scenes. Found it a bit strange to see Japanese names written in the subtitles when the names spoken is totally different. Takumi -> Ah hoi? or something like that hahah..And the credits were also very detailed. They named every character on the screen I think. Eventhough their names were never mentioned at all during the movie. So rajin..

Been on a Japanese drama-watching binge for the last few days. Gokusen was fun. A bit like GTO, only this time it's a female teacher, Yamaguchi Kumiko @ Yankumi. Some[or is it a lot?] corny jokes. Very fake fighting scenes, especially when it's Yankumi who was doing the fighting. The fact that Sawada Shin is cute helped a lot ;P . Now watching Kimi wa Petto, promoted by Alifah. Very cute story hahah.

Finally got my hands on Garth Nix's Old Kingdom trilogy - Sabriel, Lirael and Abhorsen. Even read Creature in the Case, the sequel. Riveting read. Kept me awake til morning [though for those who know me, it's not something strange :P]. I like the fact that magic and technology could exist in one world, albeit magic only works well in the Old Kingdom. I think he managed to describe a teenager's feeling quite accurately. All those emotions muddling up the thought process..the search to find a place to belong in the world..

Then there was Cloud Atlas by David Mitchell. Intriguing read. It's like a story within a story within a story... There were 6 stories, connected to each other. It progressed from the past[19th century] to the future. Each story was cut abruptly when it was getting interesting, until the final one, where it then continued with the one before it. Amazing how the author managed to create different atmosphere for each chapter. Found the final chapter the hardest to read. Might be caused by the strange way the dialogues were written...

Uh hmm time to continue watching Kimi wa petto ;P
