My Top Ten - Movies

First in my top ten posts!

1. In America - I am not a crier. Not when it comes to movies or in general really. This movie makes me cry like a bitch and I love it. Lovely film about an Irish family who move to the US after the death of their only son. Narrated by the oldest daughter who I think is about 7ish? Adorable and beautiful. It’s a must watch.

2. Labyrinth- Hello it has David Bowie in it and Jim Henson puppets. What’s not to love?? LUDO FRIIIEND!

3. Lords Of Dogtown - based on true events this movie follows the early careers of Tony Alva, Stacy Peralta and Jay Adams. The Z- Boys as they were known helped shape freestyle skating into the sport that it is today. Do I look like someone who likes skate movies? Fuck no. But this is awesome and Heath Ledger stars as Skip Engblom- surfboard shaper and the guy who made the Z-boys. He is really fucking cool. This is just a great film I love it.

4. The Resident Evil series -  my favourite of the three is the 2nd- Apocalypse. The original is awesome except I hate Michelle Rodriguez with an intense burning passion. Fucker. Extinction is fucking cool too. I probably like that second best. Yep- Aplocalypse then extinction then Original. Anyway why do I love them?? Zombies + Milla Jovovich + explosions ‘n’ shit = instant awesomeness. No question.

5. Buffy The Vampire Slayer - I know a certain person who will disagree with me but the original Buffy movie shits allllllll over the series. Thats not to say I didn’t enjoy the series, I did! But the movie is epic. I do like how the series took over where the movie ended. Joss is good like that. He didn’t just pretend the movie didn’t happen. If you are a Buffy fan make sure you check out this movie. You should have already really…shouldn’t have you!

6. The Underworld series - So we’ve had Zombies, we’ve had vampires so clearly we need werewolves! Ok so Underworld has Vampires and Werewolves. Awesome combination. Honestly I don’t really know how else I can explain why these movies are great…it has vampires and werewolves oh and Kate Beckinsale who is HOT. I just saw the third in the series Rise of the Lycans which was a prequel and I liked that too. Great movies!

7. The Neverending Story – I don’t know if you have noticed… but I like my movies to not be based in reality ;) The original Neverending Story is the best. It’s fun to watch it now I am older. I yell at the screen. FOR FUCKS SAKE BASTION JUST SAY HER FUCKING NAME GEEEEEZ! Anyway it’s awesome. I want a Falcor

8. American History X – My head isn’t totally in the clouds you guys. Edward Norton and Eddie Furlong. This movie is utterly heartbreaking and thats all I am going to say because you really need to watch it.

9. Repo! The Genetic Opera – I wasn’t going to include this but you know what? I am listening to the soundtrack right now and DAMN this movie is so cool. Ok ok ok I will pre warn you. It is a rock opera and it has… Paris Hilton in it. DO NOT LET THAT DETER YOU I AM LOOKING AT YOU LEE-MAREE GALLO! It’s full of awesome (ok Lee I think you will actually hate it I gotta be honest) but it’s sick. Blood and gore and slutty costumes and rock music. Mmmmmm yes please!!

10. I am going to be honest here, I have probably forgotten some awesome movie here. I don’t know what to make my number ten. Maybe I will think of it and I'll come back and edit this… or at least tack it on the end. I think with these lists, for me at least, its hard to think of the awesome movies, or whatever, you like when put on the spot. I can think of lots of movies I like, Harry Potter, Star Wars, Shrek, The Simpsons, Ice Age, The Lord of the Rings, Kill Bill etc etc etc but nothing is standing out to me as awesome enough to add to this list.

So you’ll just have to make do with 9 for now ;)

WATCH THESE FILMS! Tell me what you think!

Love Carrie-Anne xoxo xxxx

Technology SHUTDOWN

I have been thinking for a while now of doing the 40 hour famine..but instead of food…because that it’d be easy.. I'd do my mobile phone and internet access and instead of 40 hours it’ll be more like a whooooole weekend! Can you imagine?? I’d be dying after like 5 minutes.

So the 40 hour famine is the 21-23 of August which doesn’t work for me because I'll be in Darwin and it’ll be too easy to be without the internet on holiday because I'll be doing lots of other shit. I want to make this hard! So I’ll be choosing a different weekend to do it but I’d like your help!

I was discussing this at work today with Steve (lover) and Steve MCG and we decided we need to set some rules. What exactly I’ll have to go without. How we’ll make sure I don’t cheat. How we can record my feeling through it etc

I’m thinking make it a total technology loakout. No mobile, no internet, no house phone, no tv, no videogames, but should we go as far as no electric blanket? No heating? No anything connected to a powerpoint??? I need to think about the other people who live in my house though…should they sufffer or will I just have to confine myself to my room when they are watching tv etc?

I think we decided I’ll have to hand over my phone and computer to someone else so I can’t cheat and I’ll have to have some kind of supervision at all times. But how will you know how much pain I am in throughout? I thought I could hand over the reins of my blog to a friend. But uh I don’t know if I want to let someone loose on here… So then we though hey! I can just write everything down, captains log style, then someone can scan it for me. Then you can see my pain in my writing :) I can fully imagine me doing verbal twitter updates and giving everyone the shits “CazMinx misses technology and is bored” then a bit later “CazMinx misses technology and is bored – 5 mintues ago via her mouth” JUST IN CASE YOU MISSED IT THE FIRST TIME!

Haha ok so I turn it over to you guys. Give me some ideas. What have I overlooked? How can we make it fun? Will any of you people even sponser me if I attempt this? What charity should reap the benefits? I want your input!!

Love Caz xoxo xxxx

Hottest 100

Triple J’s hottest 100 of all time was on today and it made for a very good afternoon at work! Smells Like Teen Spirit was number one, much to the surprise of nobody. Anyway it reminded me that I have been wanting to do a top ten list blog for ages and have never got around to it! Soooo it will be coming soon. I can’t do it off the top off my head because I know i’ll miss shit.

So categories. I’m gonna do Songs, Movies, Bands? I don’t know what else. If you’ve got any ideas let me know.

Awesome

Seeeeeeya Caz xoxo xxxx
