Smiling at Strangers

{February 15, 2010}   My Epic(a) Fail … I’m sure that joke’s been made before.

So, I just got back from the theatre before doing my video-completing and I’m going to say right off the bat…. Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightning Thief was a terrible movie. Not terrible in the ways that it makes me want to gouge my eyes and soul out (like Twilight), but terrible like a huge disappointment. At least with Twilight I already knew I was going to puke in my mouth multiple times because I’d read the book. But the trailer for Percy Jackson made it look so awesome! Hydras? Colossal water columns writhing and crashing around? The fury? Yes please! Unfortunately, as soon as the movie started, it became clear that a 12 year old had been employed to write the script. The dialogue was so awfully cheesy and fake and painful… and weren’t these kids supposed to be in highschool? How did they have all that money to throw around in Vegas? And… just….

Okay, this isn’t meant to be a movie review. I just wanted to express my disappointment over the movie. Although to be fair, the monsters and water-storms were still extremely enjoyable to watch, though I wish there had been an appearance by the Chimera.

Well, I’m sure I’ve ruffled some (read: a LOT of) feathers by dissing Twilight, so in return, I give you my own video production for your critique. Save time and money….watch this instead of Percy Jackson. Yes, I was drunk at the time, and it’s all unscripted, and all I’m doing is recounting the sad tale of getting refused at a nightclub, but it’s probably just as good as Percy Jackson anyway.

I watched the vid, which I found posted on the Epica forum… Were you not aware of the clubs underage thingy? or did you think it was all ages for the gig? Aslo wanted to make the comment, loved the dress thingy, really cute ^_^

I’m planning on seeing Epica when they swing through Dallas on Decemeber 11th, and thankfully, I AM over the age of 21(23, though most people think I’m 16>.<)

I was totally aware of the underage thing. See, I’d had fake ID lined up at first, but then she backed out on me, so I just… tried to… wing it. lol. And failed. 😛

Even if I could scrape the money together to go to Dallas by December 11th, now that I’m of age to get into clubs in Canada, I’m still underage in the US. Curse this existence!

Glad you liked the dress. 😛 Ebay ftw.

Aww I’m sorry, I feel so bad for you 😦 I’ve already had nightmares about not getting in but the venue I’m going to is all ages.
