Gamer. People play like video games but with real people. It was just weird.

Oh, we used to play Dungeons and Dragons (pre internet) for hours at a time, and sometimes did it with real people, costumes and all! It was like putting on our own broadway play! Tho I suspect that book has more sinister stuff going on.

Finally saw The Black Swan last night. Gave my hubby an upset stomach. I think I wasn't in the mood, because I was exasperated at not being able to discern when she was hallucinating. However, I thought about the movie all evening and had dreams about it, so something must of wormed its way into my brain.

I knew that, really. I do rather like that version of "Emma".

Watched 'Victoria and Albert' this afternoon.
Into battle we ride with Gods by our side
We are strong and not afraid to die
We have an urge to kill and our lust for blood has to be fulfilled
WE´LL FIGHT TILL THE END! And send our enemies straight to Hell!
- "Into Battle"

Jennifer's Body. I think the whole purpose was just to show Megan Fox, the more the better.

I've just come back from seeing The Black Swan and LOVED it.
Portman does a great job. And I liked the different spin on the usual Swan Lake choreography.

Pirate Radio. Funny. Great cast and, of course, excellent music.
