quick post + birthdays + meme  
Haaai! Okay, in two hours I'll be off until the 21st for my three days of opera frenzy. I'm going to bring my netbook but since I don't have an idea whether I'll manage to steal a connection or not, better safe than sorry. Sooo, happy (advanced) birthday to halfdutch for the 19th and timey_wimey_kid and flying_colours for the 20th! <3333

For halfdutch, I hope you have an amazing day and that next year brings you every possible awesome thing, a lot of live concerts and maybe Josh Holloway getting the lead in some nice show on hbo? Or maybe guest starring on True Blood?

for timey_wimey_kid, I hope you have an amazing day as well (and ha, you're sharing it with Misha? That's nice XD), that next year is great and that we get a nice Stonehenge Apocalypse sequel with more robot heads. (And possibly decent things in SPN S6, but that went unsaid, y/y?)

for flying_colours, I hope you have a great day too and best wishes for going to America! And if you meet Slash again I'll be even more envious. ;)

And if any of you wants to prompt me I'll see what I can do. Eventually I tackle everything. Eventually being the key word, but let's not dwell on that. *wink* Happy birthday again in advance to all of you!

That said, I'll go finish packing. If I disappear until the 21st, just assume that I'm internet-less, and in case see you all then. <3 if not, well, even better.

But, before I go, meme from elliotsmelliot!

Comment with "ACTION!" and I will give you ten actors and ten actresses. Then post in your livejournal with your favorite films of theirs.

Actresses:
1. Helena Boham Carter -> Howard's End. [My love for Merchant/Ivory trumped Sweneey Todd and Corpse Bride.]
2. Rosario Dawson -> 25th Hour
3. Lauren Bacall -> Dark Passage [which no one I ever met saw, but I thought it was brilliant.]
4. Gwyneth Paltrow -> probably Seven.
5. Amy Adams -> er, the only movie of hers I've seen is Enchanted. Until I see Doubt, I guess that's it?
6. Natalie Portman -> in theory, Mars Attacks!. But since she was a lot more relevant in The Professional, I'll go for that one.
7. Winona Ryder -> Edward Scissorhands. <3
8. Emma Thompson -> Howard's End, again. Sorry, I just really love that movie.
9. Nicole Kidman -> I'll be weird and say The Interpreter. She had lovely hair in that movie, and Sean Penn was there, too, and in general I'm not that much of a fan and I haven't seen a couple of ones which would deserve a mention more.
10. Sophia Loren -> A Special Day, even if the English title for it is made of fail. Ew.

Actors:
1. Clint Eastwood -> ONE MOVIE IS ASKING TOO MUCH. Therefore:
- Leone/westerns: For A Few Dollars More
- Seventies: The Beguiled
- Overall: A Perfect World. ♥

Sorry, I can't choose one. Also, Bridges of Madison County and Unforgiven deserve mentions.
2. Harrison Ford -> Blade Runner. Easiest one. XD
3. Heath Ledger -> for his performance, Brokeback Mountain. As a movie, I'm Not There.
4. Mark Walhberg -> The Departed.
5. Djimon Honousou -> Amistad
6. Oliver Platt -> Benny & Joon. Or Kinsey.
7. Robert Downey Jr. -> Wonder Boys
8. James Franco -> Milk
9. Stanley Tucci -> The Terminal (I have a tendency for liking movies no one likes, I think).
10. Robert De Niro -> auuugh THIS IS HARD. Deer Hunter. Or Godfather part II. But.. nah, Deer Hunter. I think. ;)

Any answers to this shall come either in six hours or five days. ;) Byeee! *waves*

I've seen Dark Passage! It's not my favorite Bogey/Bacall but it's good, and I think the beginning where it's shot with the camera taking his POV is really clever.

Yesss! I went to the Rossini Opera festival. It was delicious. It had one Cenerentola which was just so amazing. <3 and the other one I watched had an incredible setting too even if the libretto's quality was kind of very below average. ;)

Wheeeeeeeeeee thank you hon!!! <3 And I wish I could actually ~SHARE~ my Birthday with Misha. I mean, it's Misha. Just imagine what kinda insanely awesome birthday parties he might have. Probably something involving nakedness, bouncing castles and bathing in a jacuzzi filled with pina colada.

The last sentense may or may not have been a prompt. :P

You're welcome! And ha, yeah, and if you want me too postponing my own birthday party I'll be happy to join the both of you. ;) ;) And ha. That's a nice prompt. I'll see what happens. XD

Hi, you in the future! (The present?) You should watch Doubt, though. It's not as good as some claimed, but has got this certain feeling only films that originally were plays have. That was a complicated sentence. And she was great.

Hi, you in the future! (The present?)

See, during the time I typed my comment, you had answered these. XD
the female ghost of tom joad: ILUjanie_tangerine on August 21st, 2010 07:15 pm (UTC)
I'm in the present! :D ;) and I will watch it someday, I just missed it because when it was out I had exams (as usual apparently =='') XD and it totally had sense, the sentence I mean. ;) also heee, yes, I totally was synchronized with you. As usual. ;)
