Snakes and Tron

Two cool things happened today.

One: I totally ran outside to our chicken coop with our Co2 gun and shot a snake. I was so pumped! OK so I was just sitting upstairs in my room being all calm by painting with my new acrylic paints and easel while listening to "Saltwater Room" by Owl City when suddenly mom calls me saying, "Bethany! Come down here. There's a snake."

Out of pure excitement I literally jump out of my chair, fly down the stairs singing an eighties song real loudly, grab the gun, and dash out the door to the chicken coop for my first killing. You won't believe how happy I was. It was a rat snake - harmless to humans, scary to chickens. It was a long, fat dude. Black with yellow spots all down its scaly back. Eventually I shot it and it kept wriggling around and giving me a hard time then it zoomed towards me and I kept firing and eventually I had to use a hoe and start slamming it towards its..... ok I won't go into any farther. I'll bet you're already grossed out from given mental images. It was pretty bloody... Well *clears throat* Anyways....

Two: I saw Tron. OK, I will now give my brief and honest opinion below in a simple review.

First forty minutes were absolutely amazing. Everything was woven together perfectly, and my attention was completely captured. But after the best scene,"the grid" game, was over, the main character Sam joined up with a girl named Cora to go visit somebody (I won't spoil it for you) and things immediately went downhill from there. Action then no longer existed; excitement came and fleeted, leaving behind nothing but a cheek-on-wrist and bored, yawning Bethany. The rest just had far too much predictable dialogue, a few plot holes, and an unsatisfying ending to pull it all off. The special effects might be one reason that makes Tron worth a shot for many, but after a while, the constant navy color and neon-blue glow that was on everything just got old to look at, and people (or programs) getting shattered like red glass when killed was very also repetitive. The one thing that deserves the most praise is the music. Programmed by the ever-famous techno lord Daft Punk, the music had a blend of an orchestra style similar to that of Hans Zimmer and James Newton Howard while still having Daft Punk's own unique robot/dance beats to the mix. I am considering purchasing that album soon.

So overall rating? I would give it 2 and a half stars out of a possible five.

Want more movie reviews? Believe me I'm a harsh critic and I'd love to do more. :) Let me know, k?

Take..... Onnnn Meeeeee

OK guys, my favorite song right now is "Take On Me" by a-ha. It works wonders, I'm not kidding, turn it on when Daniel Thomas is screaming and throwing a fit and magically, he stops crying and starts dancing. If you guys haven't heard it, it's probably because it's an 80's song, and you youngins are too tiny to know it exists! LOL.

Yet again, I haven't been keeping up with my blog.

LAAAAAAAAME. I know. I've probably caused all of you to lose hope in my updates and therefore stopped checking my blog. I understand. But now that I'm back, pretty please come back! *Pulls out puppy dog pout*

So, there has been no progress so far in my story building either. If I don't do something about it soon, Onyx will throw a fit and cause havoc upon planet.... Urbs. Guess you'll have to wait till I pour out my imagination on paper and have you read my awesomeness. :P Don't worry guys, my story is comin' along! Well at some point it will.... be, uh, comin' along...

I have new art that will soon be posted on FaceBook! Wanna see a famous anime character, Dr. Pepper pint bottle, or a girl with firey red hair? Check back on my FB page! (After Lent is over)

I also have a slideshow of pix of me with friends, etc. that will soon hit FB and possibly Blogger too. I also hope to start up some new AMVs and Dubs of animes, etc.

Etc. Etc. Etc.

Well guys this is my latest update, check back for more!

What a PERFECT day!

Oh my gosh, the weather outside is so lovely! According to my online tempurature reader on Lappy, it is supposively 63 degrees outside. To me, it feels warmer, but there's this really nice breeze and it's not cold or warm outside, but like, PERFECT. I can finally not have to bundle up with a heavy jacket (well, I never really have to anyway. Being Texas here and all). Amen to Springtime, baby!!

I am starting ACC classes next.... well, tomorrow actually! I am taking two classes, English Comp 1 and Art History 2. The English class is what I'm going to start tomorrow, and then Art History I thiiiiiink this Friday. These classes I think are going to really benefit me, first of all if I'm going to get serious about writing a whole novel, it's best I actually learn how to do it. And with Art history? Well, I like art. Art is fascinating to me.

So me and my best bud Claire are making this really annoying yet HILARIOUS podcast/blog thing called, Britney and Kaitlyn, where me and Claire talk normally to each other as each other's characters as if we were having our own conversations. It's all totally improv work, meaning we do it without a script or an idea or preporation, we just make it all up as we go along. THEN we speed up the tempo, adjust the pitch, and then me and Claire turn into Britney and Kaitlyn, two obnoxious fifth-grader girls who have no life and no friends (except for each other).

Britney Notspears, played by Claire, is a spoiled-rotten blonde brat with famous, multimillionare parents and everything she could ever want. She tends to steal the spotlight from Kaitlyn, whine and complain constantly, and break things that belong to Kaitlyn in order to get pleasure from her pain (which is, in fact, a little funny). Britney hates to admit it, but Kaitlyn is what makes her world turn round. When Kaitlyn's not around, it's always complete boredom, sadness, or endless trips to the mall.

Kaitlyn America, played by me, is an ultra-nerdy brunette that has large teeth, with braces, of course, and a plain, boring, sense of style (according to Britney). Her favorite hobbies include, reading, studying, participating in fundraisers for wildlife, and singing. When she grows up, she wants to be the first mega-genius to find a cure for cancer, walk on Mars, save endangered species, and be a famous celebrity pop singer all at the same time. When Britney's not around to torment Kaitlyn, things are quiet. Very quiet.... and perfect for reading.

See ya guys! If any of you are interested in hearing some of our Britney and Kaitlyn "episodes", let me know in a comment or email and one of us will email you one to put on your computer.

BYE! Imma going outside to have an adventure.

YOU should be doing that too, not staring pointlessly at your computer screen!!!
