OMG! I just found out that I got the lead in my theatre's double feature! Yay! So I'll be playing Lorelai in Gentleman Prefer Blondes AND Satine in Moulin Rouge! I am a little nervous though, because I have to learn Diamonds Are a Girl's Best Friend and Sparkling Diamonds and I'm worried that on opening night I'll break out into the wrong one! And the dress for Moulin Rouge is crazy short, so I guess I'll be obsessively going to the gym for the next month... Paris here I come!
Alright, Who will win: ACTOR Best: Mickey Rourke/Supporting: Heath Ledger ACTRESS Best: Kate Winslet/Supporting: Viola Davis FILM Best: Slumdog Millionare/Foreign: Waltz with Bashir/Animated: ... WALL-E/Documentary: Man on Wire. People owe of a drink if I get all of them right!

I have a question about people who protest to the content of songs. Do they even have a life? Do they just sit by the radio or the TV listening to music all day? Seriously. I mean, for most people, if they want to listen to a song, they'll listen to it. If they don't, they turn it down or off. People do have the opportunity to TURN THE DAMN THING OFF. That way, they don't get offended. I'm a little annoyed and incensed about this issue at the moment, mainly because it has just come into the forefront over the song "Brother" by Smashproof. Apparently, some people are offended by the lyric "Would you take away a kid's life just because he tagged?", referring to the case of Pihema Cameron, a 15-year-old boy from Manurewa who was stabbed to death by a man who caught him tagging his garage door. According to the lawyer of Bruce Emery, the man who stabbed Pihema, the lyric does not display the whole of "what it's about". Forgive my French, but what the bloody hell else is it about? Bruce Emery, a fifty-year-old businessman with two houses, heard two boys tagging his garage and went out to warn them off. WITH A KNIFE. What do you go and get a knife for unless you're expecting to hurt someone? And, when Pihema ran off, Bruce Emery did not just leave it at that. Oh no, of course not. HE RAN AFTER HIM AND STABBED HIM IN THE HEART. Right, because that's just totally sensible. Over a garage door?!?! Come on, he's a businessman, he owns TWO houses. Is it really that big of a deal? Why couldn't he have just painted over it? And it's not like he's suffering big time over it either. He got acquitted of murder, had the charges dropped to manslaughter and got four years. Right. So he'll be out in two. For taking away a boy's life. And to add insult to injury, Emery's lawyer said on sentencing day that it was time for his family to "move on". Yay. So a boy, A 15-YEAR-OLD BOY is killed, a boy who was a son and a brother and a friend, and they're just supposed to move on?!?! You can guarantee that if it were a Caucasian boy, Bruce Emery would have gotten life for murder. Come on. It's the truth isn't it? Particularly here. We're supposed to believe that New Zealand is a multi-cultural society, sure it is, but they don't mix. Anyway, I'm going to stop now before I burst a blood vessel or something.

Night,

There are very few stories that leave me speechless, but there are very few words that can describe the horror of the Australian bush fires. Here, in my little place in Tauranga, where people sleep in with their windows and doors open because of the heat, the skies are pink at 3am in the morning, and you can smell smoke in the air. Apparently it's the same for my family in Auckland. I cannot begin to say how profoundly saddened I am by the situation of my country's closest neighbors and comrades. My prayers are with everyone at this time. I would also, in an indirect way, like to thank the people who donated to relief funds for the Victoria area. Also, I am praying for my Aunt, who recently moved to the Victorian bush, and whom I have not been able to contact yet.

Love

17th-Feb-2009 08:13 pm - Shag the British... Part II
Ala my previous post, I failed to mention:

Keira Knightley, Hayley Atwell, Rupert Grint, Rupert Everett, Justin Lee-Collins, Alan Carr, Criminal Justice, Matthew Rhys, Emmerdale, London Tower, Jennifer Saunders, Dawn French, Lenny Henry, Adrian Edmondson, Colin Friels (Okay, well technically he's Australian, but he was born in Scotland!), Michael Parkinson, Daniel Day-Lewis, Mel Smith and Gerard Butler.

Okay, love for the British over.

P.S. I would however like to point out that NONE of the English Sevens team have been included on my list, for their clear treachery in beating New Zealand in Wellington. SHAME ON THEM!!!

Persnickety, flibbertigibbet, lollygag—some words are just more fun to say. What's your favorite word?
Nitwit, blubber, odment, tweak; four wonderful words don't you think?

Do you consider yourself an optimist, a pessimist, or a realist?
I consider myself a realist, because to me being a realist means being a mixture of both pessimism and optimism. Besides, nobody can be just one all the time can they?
