Heh, so I washed and ironed and folded real nicely all of the costuming im going to use in the next four months into labeled boxes.

-Nadya's Decorations and Other Stuff
-Miriam and Black Costuming

I also have
-A box of browns and greens for the one-shot
-A box labeled with Nadya's OOP nickname... hee hee. Who knows when this one will come up.

I'm such a dork. Whatever inspires me to be organized, I suppose. I still need to clean and reorganize my makeup box, and use my old makeup box for all the random stuff i have laying around. I'm glad Thane got me to buy those awesome cheap paint brushes, they should last me if nobody steals 'em or i don't drop them somewhere.

I'll take pictures of the craft area when I'm done organizing everything. Almost done with that part. Theres a bajillion pounds of clothes all over the couches in the living room still and the kitchen will always be the kitchen.

I was going to write a "I don't understand it when people" type of post but I completely forgot what I wanted to write about.

Oh, also, I caught some sort of Japanese movie on TMC earlier. I really liked it a lot! The thing is, is that it seemed to be the epitome of what people HATE in movies -- really horribly slow. Everyone always whines that this movie is slow wah wah, but except in a few cases I really appreciate a quiet film that focuses on the human experience and scenery and etc.

That being said, there was something about There Will Be Blood that bugged me. Its way of trying to showcase scenery is much, much different than the way the Japanese do it. They used slow moving, wide shots where the Japanese seem to like to do close-ups of particular things, have a static foreground with movement in the background. Those of you who have seen Manga or read Understanding Comics have an idea of what I mean -- those same sort of frames show up in older Japanese film a lot.

Also, I think what time of the day effects what sort of movies i feel like watching. In the middle of the night a nice quiet Japanese film is perfect -- thats usually not what we go to the theatre for, right?

I also seem to have a mini-cold. I felt worse earlier, I hope I feel better when i wake up in the morning/afternoon.

Just make sure the novella doesn't transform Nadya into the new Antarr. One is plenty.

Well, maybe of Antarr.

Insert "Spanky" into that sentence and it sounds REALLY dirty.
