Its been awhile.
First off, lets start with my Japanese.
I've been learning with the "Japanese coach game" along with a few worksheets off the Interwebs.
Basically, you start off by learning colors, numbers, months, all gradually in romanji. Then, you switch to learning everything in Hiragana and eventually Kanji. *Shrugs*
I've been doing all I can.( OhhhhCollapse )
Though, I'm still at Pre-school level. >\\\\<
Last week, I went to Lake Martin, which is a HUGE man-made lake located in Kowaliga. Its one of largest artificial lakes in the US. There's actually a town located underneath the water, because it was a home to many a people at one time. So, yes. There are houses, power lines, cars, and whatever else underneath the water. Not to mention catfish the size of vehicles. Kinda crazy.
Anyway. I got super, fucking burnt. It was painful, worse than any sunburn I have ever had. It's still peeling. D:
I took pictures, because I really love that place. I go there all the time during summer.( Lake picturesCollapse )( Kittens and PokemonCollapse )
I went to see Transformers 2 today with my Uncle and his family. I had warned them. Some of the movie was inappropriate for kids. (Jesse, their son, LOVES Transformers.) They ignored me, and then complained afterward. Hell, I /warned/ them and they act like I didn't say anything. Apparently, my opinion isn't well respected.Spoilers for Transformers 2, beyond this point!!!!!
T2, it was fun. Things blowing up all the time was the best part. I just love the sound and to see people running for their lives. Not to mention the fire. :] Many people, I've found, dislike Megan Fox. I adore her. She's gorgeous, and this movie is a testament to that. *Reminds herself to make a batch of Megan icons*
I do, however, think it was plotless and was filled with holes. ♦ Optimus Prime was dead half of the movie. That kinda blowed.
♦ Optimus could have been resurrected with the shard Sam had. There was no need for the run around.
♦ The blonde girl, who was horny 24/7, was basically a waste of time. No seriously, she was.
♦ Was there really a need to show the past? You couldn't understand it in the beginning anyway.
♦ Bad bots can switch sides? No fuck?! How is that possible? I thought they were /born/ that way.
♦ Optimus as both decepticon(?)/autobot, holy shit. That was freaking cool. In the end he dropped...um, Jetfires armor. Just, cuput. Is it really that easy to just break off what has been bonded with you?
♦ Now that The Fallen is dead, is Megatron the leader? He lacked this time. LACKED. Though, he gets brownie points for killing Optimus.
♦ Decepticons spent 2 years looking for the All Spark, and now they find it? I have a hard time believing a piece of the shard just stayed unnoticed for 2 years in Sams closet. Really. Aliens aren't that dumb.
♦ Is that Jazz I see?!? Thought he was dead.
♦ Also thought there were less aliens. Where the hell did they all come from? Kinda pointless. Lost track of all their names. ;|
♦ Sorry, I do not enjoy seeing two dogs hump one another. Boo.
♦ Sector seven is disbanded. But the Roost, or nest or something is active. Aliens=/=aliens Why shut down one to just open something else with the same tune?
♦ Sams roommate=waste of time. They could have survived without him.
♦ There were goof-ups. When Sams roommate is supposed to be tasered, a few seconds later he's shown getting out of the car. There were more, but I forgot.
♦ Run time was extremely long. It could have been cut down. Parts like whats-his-face radioing the army while running up the pyramid. It was unnecessary. He could have called them from the ground.
♦ The fights were WAY to close-uped. I could barely tell who won with Optimus Vs The Fallen. Why show closeups when you can't see the action?
♦ Tomb of the Primes was easy to get into. Just knock a hole in the wall. I expected them to dig. Now how did that go unnoticed for centuries?
♦ In the end, Sam going crazy really wasn't a big deal. How did he just STOP seeing the symbols?
♦ Could they have used anymore sexual jokes? Kids wanted to see this movie. Instead every few minutes they talked about sex, balls, more sex. Ridiculous. END SPOILERS
I could go on, and on, really. I really did love the movie, but there were times where it was just, "Why was this put in here?" I think I'm being overly critical because I'm still pissed off about Optimus.
I'll buy it when it comes on DVD. Nothings changed.
Bye. Bye~! *waves*
