Hail Procrastination!

Godddd I don't know what's gotten into me lately! I seemed to be very laaaazy doing my assignments! how could this happened?! I mean, obviously, I love my work. (or do I?) I'm not so sure anymore. It's like I have this kind of look on my face every single day. the I-don't-wanna-live-in-this-planet-anymore look. the kill-me-now look. the 0mg-I'm-so-bored-I-can't-stand-another-day look. the touch-me-I'll-bite look, whatever. all of my grades are on its way down (just checked my slim and like oh my gosh there goes my grades) and I'm not so sure where did I go wrong. I mean. it's not like, I didn't do it wholeheartedly. well I don't know for sure because these days I got A LOT on my mind. There are a lot of things that needs to be done. there's just too much to think of right now and I'm sure my mind's gonna explode from the intensity of it. I need a mood booster or something. ANYTHING!! I desperately need help. anybody! *shouting*

ok well.. enough drama. haha that's clearly the things I don't wanna talk about right now. as you can see, the title of my post is Hail Procrastination, which means today I continued to do it and I realized I became pretty good at it. the day before yesterday I kept telling myself. "okay this night Ima do my assignments". but then something happened and then I told myself to do it the day after. and then the day after, which is yesterday, all of sudden my dad told me that he wanted to watch movies. cmon I'm bad at this. when it comes to movies, I just can't refuse, you know. that's just something too impossible to do. and so I watched Memento. and then today!!! I was really positive that I would finish my assignment today. but then! I just remembered that I've been watching these two tv series called Vampire Diaries and The Secret Circle, and today's the day they released the all new episode! how can I refuse? and so... there goes my assignments.. all hail procrastination!!!

okay btw. I wrote this post yesterday and when I was about to publish post, the wifi connection was turned off so I post it today. aaaand today is Saturday which means I gotta go watch movie in the cinema xD Warrior or The Green Lantern? have a great Saturday everyoneeee!!! =D enjoy it while you still can =p

I Can't Live Without Music =)

okay I just got the idea to write some of the epic songs I've ever listened to.. hahaha. I really CAN'T, CANNOT *emphasize* live. without. music. Music is the most wonderful thing people can have in this miserable life. Songs allow us to know that we're not alone. I mean the lyrics. The song makers often tell us a story about their perspective on life. and sometimes, there are some songs that describe our feelings precisely. That overwhelming feeling you got when you heard that song was like. wow. I'm not alone =')

And I love to play instruments as well.. I love my guitar. and I love to sing. and sometimes I play piano, though I have to admit my music skill is very poor, and so is my singing skill. but it manage to wash away my loneliness or my bad mood when I played a song.

Sooo I'm gonna share some songs I recently played on my iTunes over and over again, and I literally can't live without them. no kidding. I found myself smile for no reason when I heard one of these songs =) these 12 songs are all I can think of right now. I'm sure there are more, I'll post it next time.

1. Anywhere But Here - Safetysuit

Is this a natural feeling
Or is it just me bleeding
All my thoughts and dreams
In hope that you will be with me or
Is this a moment to remember
Or just a cold day in December?
I wonder
If maybe
Maybe I could be
All you ever dreamed, Cause you are
You're beautiful inside
You're so lovely and I
Can't see why I'd do anything without you, you are
And when I'm not with you, I know that it's true
That I'd rather be anywhere but here without you

2. What If - Safetysuit

What if it makes you sad at me
And what if it makes you laugh now but you cry as you fall asleep
And what if it takes your breath and you can't hardly breathe
And what if it makes the last sound be the very best sound

What if what I want makes you sad at me
And is it all my fault or can I fix it please
Cause you know that I'm always all for you
Cause you know that I'm always all for you

3. All We Are - One Republic

Every single day that I can breathe, you change my philosophy
I'm never gonna let you pass me by
So don't say your goodbyes you know its better that way
We won't break, we won't die
It's just a moment of change

4. For the First Time - The Script

Oh these times are hard,
Yeah they're making us crazy
Don't give up on me baby

5. Nothing - The Script

And my mates are all there trying to calm me down
'Cause I'm shouting your name all over the town
I'm swearing if I go there now
I can change her mind turn it all around

And I know that I'm drunk but I’ll say the words
And she'll listen this time even though they’re slurred
Dialed her number and confessed to her
I'm still in love but all I heard
Was nothing

6. Trading Yesterday - Shattered

Who I am from the start
Take me home to my heart
Let me go and I will run
I will not be silenced
All this time spent in vain
Wasted years, wasted gain
All is lost, hope remains
And this war's not over

there's a light, there's the sun
Taking all the shattered ones
To the place we belong
And his love will conquer all

Yesterday I died
Tomorrow's bleeding
Fall into your sunlight

7. The Script - Science and Faith

You won't find faith or hope down a telescope
You won't find heart and soul in the stars
You can break everything down to chemicals
But you can't explain a love like our

8. One Republic - Good Life

Oh this has gotta be the good life
This has gotta be the good life
This could really be a good life, good life

Say oh, got this feeling that you can't fight
Like this city is on fire tonight
This could really be a good life
A good, good life 

9. Anberlin - Fin

We're not questioning God.
Just those he chose to carry on His cross.
We're no better, you'll see.
Just all of us, the lost causes.

Aren't we all to you just lost causes?
Are we all to you lost?
Lost causes

10. Saosin - You're Not Alone

You're not alone
There is more to this, I know
You can make it out
You will live to tell

11. Tokio Hotel - Don't Jump

I scream into the night for you
Don't make it true
Don't jump
The lights will not guide you through
They're deceiving you
Don't jump
Don't let memories go
Of me and you
The world is down there out of view
Please don't jump
Don't jump

I don't know how long
I can hold you so strong
I don't know how long

Just take my hand
Give it a chance
Don't jump

12. My Chemical Romance - Disenchanted

If I'm so wrong
(So wrong, so wrong)
How can you listen all night long?
(Night long, night long)
How will it matter after I'm gone?
Because you never learned a goddamned thing

You're just a sad song with nothing to say
About a lifelong wait for a hospital stay
And if you think that I'm wrong
This never meant nothing to you

Movie Review: Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides (2011)

Drink up me hearties yo ho! Finally I get to watch this movie. This tax problem going on is really frustrating I've missed WAYYYY TOO MANY movies.. esp. summer movies. grrrr
anyways. Ima write a review about the adventure of Capn Jack Sparrow in the Fountain of Youth.

soooooo... I don't know why they decided to make another Pirates of the Caribbean movie.. I mean.. the three previous films are great as a trilogy. I thought At World's End was the conclusion of the epic journey of Capn Jack Sparrow.. Now they make another one.. I didn't think that that's a good idea.. without Orlando Bloom and Keira Knightley? and. Without Gore Verbinski?!?!? cmon, what makes you guys think that this'll work? I mean.. It's PotC!! They need Verbinski, he's the best. Please don't screw it up.. At first, that was the way I was thinking.. please don't ruin the trilogy, don't ruin my fav character etc..

Turns out that, the movie is not that bad and not that good either. the good thing is, at least they succeed in creating the pirate atmosphere. without Keira and Orlando, they still can make the adventure of Capn Jack Sparrow quite interesting. The setting as well. and I enjoyed the movie until the very end. I didn't feel the urge to get out of the cinema, and I managed to stay awake. and the other thing I love from this movie is the Mermaids! wow they're simply. beautiful. first they looked like a bunch of fallen angels, and at once, they looked like a vampire sea creatures. I mean. They succeeded in capturing the beauty yet vicious sea creatures. Astrid Berges-Frisbey, I'm a fan! Pic of her:

No matter how good they build the atmosphere, still, Verbinski's PotC is a hell of a lot more better than Marshall's. And the screenplay as well. I miss the witty Jack and Barbossa! I mean, the whole pirate's negotiation just don't work anymore. I didn't say that there were none, well, there are 'some' witty convos, but there are not as many and as witty as the three previous films.

As for Johnny Depp, well, I don't have to doubt him. He still got it. of course. haha and Geoffrey Rush as well. I like him as Barbossa. He's just the right actor to play that character. and I love Barbossa! he's just as crazy as Sparrow but unfortunately, not as witty =p I love to see them both side by side, but, well. they never stick together for long. one minute they're cool, the next they want to snap each other's neck. that's the interesting part of them, though, I have to say. haha

About the score soundtrack, I have to say I expect more from Hans Zimmer, but this one's not bad. He can build the mood. The thing I like about him is, he always keeps the movie alive, no matter what genre the movie is. I'm a big fan of him, he's a genius!

In conclusion, I think this movie is entertaining. I had a laugh, I didn't fall asleep, but still it's not as good as the three previous films. the storyline, the screenplay, the direction, the visual effects.. all hail Gore Verbinski!

Barbossa: [to Jack about how he lost the battle against Blackbeard] Taken, not lost. We were off the coast of Hispanola when we came under attack. No provocation nor warning or offer of parley. We were peppered with cannon fire. And then the sea beneath the Pearl began to roil. The Pearl was pitching and yawing so violently and every rail and spar all at once began to creak-the rigging had come to life! Our own ship turned against us. Tangling the crew, wrapping them like snakes... and wrapping around my leg! But my arms were free and my sword was still in my hand. I am the master of my ship, not Blackbeard. I am the master of my fate, not Blackbeard! So I did what needed done... I survived
