Amongst the Thorns, She Fights!

Freaky Friday- 2012 & Eclipses

So, I went to watch 2012, again last Friday. I paid more attention than last, and oh boy did I pay attention. Also, I discovered that the first time around, we had missed out at least 5-10 minutes of the movie. Savoy had the longest queue that day. Sad really. We sat in the middle section, first row too. And did we giggle. PseudoRandom and I did for sure *winks at PR*.

Apart from the world coming to an end, and signs that said “Repent, the end is nigh” – which I do believe. I strongly believe that 2012 is a possibility. Will we have super cool arks which are supported by not-so-sturdy locks, well I don’t think so. Will we all die because we can’t afford the €1,000,000,000 ticket prices?  I don’t think so, but if it comes to that let’s hope that temporary inflation occurs and we would indeed be able to afford it. I know, I’m making a mockery out of our monetary system, I think we should, it’s mockful!

So, anyway, I watched the movie, second time around. Was awed by the graphics yet again, thought the Russian was oh-so-fine yet again, along with the serene monk  yet again. I did this originally with PseudoRandom, giggling throughout.  I know I’m going to the place that’s hot and fiery and I will be burned over and over again for my sins. In my defense he was a fake monk, by the name of Osric Chau. I would never look at a real monk that way. all you religious fanatics who all went “We shall burn you at the stake (wrong century), err… we shall stone you to death” can now calm yourselves for I have done no wrong. An actor shall be appreciated for his acting skills as well as appearance skills.

Moving on.  The movie was alright in my opinion. I being the history buff that I like to think I am, enjoyed the Mayan references, as well as the bits of information they gave on the Earth’s impending doom. So, according to the movie, first there will be drought, then earthquakes, then volcanoes, storms, hurricanes, tsunamis. There will be Earth Crustal Displacement or Pole Shift, and one way we could survive all this would be if we have a large ship/ark (I keep thinking Noah’s Ark) or if we are airborne. Could we all go into space and live there for a while maybe? How is our Space Station coming along anyway? I strolled over the NASA website, and had a gander, and behold they have an interactive page to let you take a virtual tour of the International Space Station. Well clickey here – The Oh-So-Magnificent ISS Interactive Reference Guide. There’s much left to be done, and I don’t reckon it can be inhabitable by 2012. I’ve been watching too many intergalactic oriented TV shows. Oh well Arks are our only hope now.  So yeah the depictions of earthly woe, mass mayhem and destruction was brilliantly brought forth through brilliant graphics team.  But the plot was kinda so-so for me, I don’t know, I’m just saying, and the acting was also equally so-so. With a mighty spoiler alert, behold;

ADRIAN (in 2009): Oh noes, the sun is spanking us with solar flares, the world is burning up, like my impending burning up love for the first daughter. We must save her, I mean human kind.

ADRIAN (in 2012): Oh the woe, we have not much time. The world is coming to an END *cue ominous music* We must save HER, I mean HUMAN KIND!

LAURA [storms in to Oval Office to confront her Dad]: Daddy, why did my idol die in a Princess Diana accident?

ADRIAN: *ponders to self : Ah IT IS SHE! My future WIFEY!* Hi, erm I’m Adrian Helmsley… [is ignored]

*

JACKSON: We must go to YELLOWSTONE! And meet a crazy stoned-into-oblivion fella who will be the all-knowing person to save our lives.

KIDS: But DAAAAD, We gotta go Wee Wee!

JACKSON: We must GO, to the spring I took your mother to, a long time ago. A drink from it and she will be mine once more. If not Gordon will die in the cataclysmic events and she will anyway be mine. That comes later. Oh but alas, the springs are GONE! And the army is here, to rescue us from the hot water spring giving me heat wave. My HEROES!

KIDS: Scary heroes with GUNS! Weee!!!! We are beyond cool!

*

JACKSON:  The end is NIGH. I will save my babies and *grumble* Gordon too. I will drive insanely and we shall all live because this is Hollywood, and the underdogs are immortal like so. *points at Gordon and goes Nyah Nyah Nyah*  HA!I will take us away on a Giant Bird and then meet the Fat Russian, and the 2 Hot Russians, and all will soon at the masses will swoon, and they will be saved, and a super uber cool voice operated Bentley will make an appearance and all you car freak will go OMFCG!

*

YURI: I have PASS! You have NONE. We live. You die. *Sticks out tongue*

UNDERDOGS: We shall find a way, because a hot serene Monk and his family shall take us under their wings and aboard the ark. HURRAY!

*

ADRIAN:  The moment we stop fighting for each other, that’s the moment we lose our humanity.

ADRIAN’S MIND: I shoot, I score!

*

After that I can’t be bothered, because despite the chaos, some 400,000 were saved and they started a new life.  Blah blah blah.

Ah, so yeah, after we finished watching the movie, and stepped out of Savoy, the sky was freaky weird. I mean after seeing the world come to an end, a weird sky is pretty freaky. We then remembered the eclipse. Didn’t see it fully cos we weren’t prepared, but I did notice the shadow. Did anyone notice the freaky shadow play? Took an image of a tree shadow. Weird man, really weird. See here;

Freaky Tree Shadow Play

Anywho, this has been far too long. Adios amigos. First day of work tomorrow at the new place. Wish me luck.

  2. The parody-script was hilarious.
    It sounds like the stuff on that script website which I forget. I just told you this on Gmail but felt like repeating it! The one about Adrian’s lau had be in fits!

    Also, Russian was Hawwwttt! Too bad he had to die. You know what they say about the hot, good men (Gay, taken, dead etc). Man, I feel morbid.

    The eclipse is not supposed to be a good sign. The end is near! Repenttt! REPENT!!

    Okay, I am done with the dramatics.

    Bon chance demain, ma chere 🙂
