All About Jazz_Fan
Welcome to me blog.
Oh the Holidays, a cold and gloomy time of the year that we use as a time to get together with friends and family and give the gift of love. I suppose we do need these glamorized rituals and ideas of the holiday season to get through the terrible weather and the inertia this tends to ensue. As for me? Well, I am surviving; getting through the days and hope to use these few weeks off to get some fun stuff done like watching some films I've been sitting on for a while, playing some video games and finish up a book and then write an essay on it for class. I am going back to California on the 29th to my fathers' house for New Years Eve so that should be a good time to finish up on my work, though I probably won't given my chronic procrastination. A few of my cousins and other relatives are coming over from Brazil and from other places around the US to celebrate Christmas and it's always great to have family over because it makes this big empty home vibrant and filled with cheery people making for a rather calming time. I suppose because Christmas has never lived up to my crazy standards when I was a kid it made me rather bitter and cynical about the time of the year and I take for granted some of the sincerity friends and family have to come together and try to make it an enjoyable time of the year for everyone when they can easily spend those days of relaxation to themselves. With all the commercialism, religious, historical and political influences of the holiday season; it's easy to lose focus of things, but whatever it all means, I just hope to savor the moments because they won't last forever.
Well, if you actually spent your time reading my whiny rambling of a blog you deserve this more than anyone: Happy Holidays everybody.
As some of you may know, I am leaving to California today and for the next week I will very rarely be online (if at all) I know a little part of you may have died inside, but we will get through it! I have been thinking about taking a portable DVD player with me to watch on the plane, but the battery runs out quite quick and the sound of engine will cancel out quite a bit of dialogue, luckily, I still have my trusty Ipod Shuffle to get me through the plane ride! I should be staying in the bay area, close to San Fransisco. This happen rather sudden so I am unaware of what I will be doing on this trip, but it's always great to go places and try something new. Now, before I leave on the trip, I bought some great films from the Barnes and Noble 50% off Criterion Collection sale, unfortunately, I won't be able to watch them until a little after I come back from my trip. Here are the films I got!
Fritz Lang's early sound Masterpiece M.
Roman Polanski's Second Film and first in the 'Apartment Trilogy' Repulsion.
John Ford's 1938 Film Stagecoach.
Well, I should cut this short because I am leaving now! Goodbye all and have a pleasant day!
Okay, it looks like I have been "tagged" by the great chessmaster1989. Though I feel a little honored in a Internet fad kind of way, I feel a little awkward, for I know that a lot of people here who are into metal and all of that stuff and my Itunes is lacking on bands and artists so this might be a little redudant. Nevertheless, I have been tagged and must fufill my Gamespot duties, though I will not give as colorful of commentary as Mister chessmaster, for I am a boring person, but we shall go through with it! Here are the rules that have been laid on me:
- "Put Your iTunes (or other music player) on Shuffle.
- For each question, press the next button to get your answer.
- You must write down the name of the song no matter how silly it sounds!
- Put any comments in brackets after the song name.
- Tag at least 10 friends.6. Anyone tagged has to do the same, because fun pointlessness spreads like a virus."
