random [23 Jun 2007|11:23pm]
[ mood | complacent ]

So... I was sitting around, surfing the web and decided to make a random livejournal entry, since I haven't since last August.
Good times.
Not much has changed.
I just work all the time. Which, yesterday I burned and cut myself at work. Not badly, but I have some visible battle wounds.
Today was the relay for life walk. Mom and I were going to make a team, but didn't have any time, so we just went for the survivors lap, then left. It felt kind of weird that we didn't stay, since we've had a team every year, but alas, life tends to get in the way of fun stuff.
I also baked amazing brownies tonight.
I'm pretty sure that's all the exciting news I have.

My life is lame.

Funny story. Duchess just started running around barking at absolutely nothing, then she ran into my room, laid down on my bed, put her head down like she was about to sleep, then continued to growl. The end.

bored? [02 Jan 2006|01:35pm]
Hello dear friends! I was just sitting around my house looking up porn on the laptop. JUST KIDDING. Ew. I was checking Myspace comments to be honest and I decided to checkout Livejournal while I was at it. I had completely fogotten about this thing until now. I forgot the hours I would spend on here updating and reading friends comments and entries. Once I was introduced to Myspace I forgot about my old friend Livejournal. (This sounds like a heart wrenching story of love and loss, but I'm referring to internet sites. God I need a life!)
Well anyway. I figured I would post a comment. About nothing. So people could read this and worry about my well-being.
I hope there's a snow day tomorrow. That would be fun. Well, my mom is yelling for me, so I must go.

Sam, I need a new layout. And I need to post more entries. Update people on interesting occurances in my fun-filled life!

Look at your LJ "interests" list. If you have fewer than 50 interests, pick every fifth one. If you have between fifty and seventy-five interests, pick every seventh one. If you have over seventy-five interests, pick every tenth one. If you have fewer than ten, pick all of 'em. List them on your LJ, and tell everyone exactly what it is about these things that interests you so much.


Ben and Jerry's- Do I really need to explain this one? Ben and Jerry's ice cream is amazingly good. (As I write this I am enjoying Marsha Marsha Marshmallow :D)

Giant Fighting Robots- Let's think about this one. What would be better than controling a giant robot that fights other robots. It would be amazing. I heart robots. <3

Laziness- I think this one is self explanitory.

Ninja's- They are so secretive and sneaky. I wish I wasn't so clumsy or else I would SO be a ninja.

Picasso- My favorite artist.

Rockifying- Sam, Nicole and Sydney know what it's like to be rockified by Jenn. It's freaking awesome that's what it is. If you have ever considered being rockified just call Jenn anytime before August and she can make plans to rockify you.

Swings- The up and down motion of almost flying. Sitting on black piece of rubber hanging by two medal chains. Oh the bliss.

Zombies- BRAINS BRAINS. See "Night of the Living Dead", "Dawn of the Dead", or "Shaun of the Dead" and you'll understand why.





Today is Nicoles Birthday! Wednesday is my Birthday! Saturday is our percussion party!

first update in a billion years [31 Aug 2005|01:58pm]
[ mood | chipper ]

So I haven't updated in a million years. I haven't had time to update due to work, sleep and work. I had an enjoyable summer. Between Rocky Horror and Lakehouses it was greatly one of the best summers yet. Now that school has started I have managed to get more free time than before. I don't have a 1a or a 4th block classes. I come home, sit around, relax (and read harry potter).
So I came home today made myself annie's peace pasta and parmesan and snagged a peach snapple. I moved my laptop into the kitchen and put The Mars Volta into the sterio. It's quite hot and sticky in my house and being the only inhabitant at the moment I came to one conclusion. Take off the skirt. So as I enjoy my snapple and pasta I have been sitting in my cloud undies. Upon all this fun stuff I came to one conclusion: MySpace is EXTREMELY confusing. I've tried to do stuff with it, but I just get more and more confused. I think I've pretty much given up on the whole MySpace crap.
I also came to another conclusion. I watch a lot of movies. And I always share my opinion about the movies with everyone. Whether it be friends, family, co-workers or random people coming through my line at work. I'm very opinionated when it comes to movies. So I've come to the conclusion of starting a LiveJournal account that is specifically my views about movies. Whether it be new movies in theaters, new movies on dvd, or old ones that look intriguing, even weird foreign movies, whatever I watch I'll write how I feel about it. I'll probably get that started sometime tonight. I might add previous entry's from this journal (the one's about movie) into my new one. Actually I'll come up with a user name and such after I'm done with this entry.
Well I think I'm gonna get started. And when Sam's out of school I'll have her do the layout, because I thoroughly suck at figuring that stuff out.
peace out playas,
Jankers

Picture this: A Kid in a Candy Store... Know what I'm saying? [18 Jul 2005|11:58pm]
[ mood | pooped ]

I saw Charlie and the Chocolate Factory last night... lemme tell ya... someone took 50 hits of acid and made it.
Between the the Oompa Loompa's doing improvisational rock music and Johnny Depp's Micheal Jacksonish character the movie was exhilerating and a seizure waiting to happen. Bright colors everywhere and dry humor that went over the small children's heads and making the parents blush. It was a fascinating movie between love and loss, moving up in life, and learning the importance of family ties. The movie which is mainly based on the book and not the Gene Wilder movie confused the audience that never bothered to pick up the book. Which another piece of information that no one really knows about Charlie and the Chocolate Factory is the fact that the first edition of the book was banned due to racism. Instead of Oompa Loompa's in the book Rahl Dahl had black's as Willy Wonka's slaves. Do I recommend this movie? Most definetly. It's an endearing tale of a lovable boy and a magical world. So gather up some friends, do some heavy drugs and prepare to have the 'trip' of a lifetime at the movies. Okay, you don't have to take drugs, I enjoyed it quite well without them.

Well that's pretty much all I've done in the past few days. Not counting the countless hours of slave labor at work. Every moment I spend in that hell hole I keep thinking to myself "AAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHH". Then I think about putting a plastic bag over my head.

peace out children

[ mood | tired ]

This is going to be a short entry because it's 11:50pm and I have to be up by 5am to open shaws tomorrow morning. GAH.......!!!!!

Today I got up and watched an episode of freaks and geeks. I then took Duchess downtown, she hated it. So many people and lots of noise. She probably wanted to punch me in the face for bringing her there. I thought that it would be a good idea to get her out of the house for once, but she thought otherwise.

After lots of nagging by the dog I brought her home. My mom and I went shopping at kohls to get me a new Rainbow Bright watch, since mine broke. More or less I didn't bother taking it off when I went in the lake and it filled with water. eh... they're cheap, so it wasn't a huge loss.

Once I finished my expedition with my mother I picked up Sam and went downtown to get some Dos Amigos and watch Into the Woods. The show was great. There was a wicked hot prince charming and a cute Pat Dorow in the show. I called the prince, so Sam called Pat and it was a deal. The only problem with the show is that it was long and there was a very tired Jenn watching it. But once it was over we booked it out of there so I could get some sleep. Which is what I'm going to do right now.

Goodnight all!

hello children,
I haven't posted in a billion years... and by a billion years i mean since school. My last entry was in class, so its been awhile.

Italy was pretty fun. I saw some cool stuff. But I hated the big monuments and museums, they were so crowded. It was also 110 degrees everyday. There was no humidity except in venice, but it was still brutal. I also got food poisoning and spent one day in the hotel throwing up every two seconds. I have a shit load of fascinating stories, just call and I'll inform you on all the little details. I would post pics, but i dont know how...

Well I would fill everyone in on my summer, but I think I'm just going to fill you in on the past two days and post more often this summer.

So yesterday I had a dr.'s appt. in the morning, then percussion till one. After percussion my mom took me out to lunch at Bagel Works and I put up posters for Music in Market Square. After a few hours of riveting paper posting Tim called and invited me to go to a lake with him and two of his friends. So I went home got my suit and picked him up. The lake was awesome. It was in the middle of the woods and had a rope swing and some ladders and wood planks to jump from. Tim, Mike and Kevin took turns jumping from the rope swing. Then three boys swam over to the spot we were at. They were about 10 and every other word was fuck. They thought they were tuff shit. It was so funny. They kept calling us fags. One of them called Tim a fag one too many times, so Tim said "Yes, I AM gay" and grabbed the kid and threw him in the water. After that the kids didnt say too much, they just sat there looking at us. After awhile we all swam back to the cars and went to Mike's house for some pizza. We then made our way back home.

Today I woke up to my mom in a tizzy. She kept yelling "the guests are gonna be here and the house is a mess... AHHHHH." So every year my dad goes out golfing with a bunch of his firefighter friends, then after they come to my house, go swimming, eat some food, drink some beers, then go to a conference thats down the road. Well today was that day. And the house was a 'mess'. It wasn't messy at all. But I had to get out of bed and do some odd jobs. It was lame. I then took a shower and went to work. It was so busy. I went in an hour early and left a half hour late. I have no clue where all the people came from. It was insane. I then met Tim at Redhook and sat with him while he waited for his brother to pick him up. He's gone to Cape Cod until Saturday. He's from the Cape, so he's staying with his family and seeing a concert down near there. I was supposed to go too, but I didn't have enough money or someone to take my shift saturday morning. Well anywho... that's pretty much where my day ends... and here I am...

Well that is my flipping awesome entry.

Sam you HAVE to fix my lj... its still screwy...

night night kids...

Good morning sunshines!

I am currently in English. I'm so bored. No one is doing anything and Mrs. McAllister doesn't really care. She is sitting in a circle of students talking about random stuff. I can only find so many things to do to amuse me.

I'm trying to figure out if there really is such thing as a true rumor. I keep hearing miscellaneous rumors about people I know and I'm trying to figure out if I should believe them or just ignore them. Bah... I think too much. I wish I could just approach people and ask them without being concerned that they will take it out on me for actually believing the rumors. boohiss. I wish I could tell when people were lying.

Well this is my awesome entry.

theres a snake in my boot... how discouraging... [19 May 2005|11:52am]
[ mood | bored ]

Well i am currently in 50's with ms. glos. I finished my project early and now i must sit here and amuse myself.
Last night was uber amounts of fun. But it ended too early. :P
It started with my friend Tim calling me after school yelling "GO TO THE BRATSKELLER"... I had nothing else to do, so I went. Tim, Randi and Mike had lunch while i enjoyed some root beer. It was funner than a barrell of monkeys. And trust me, a barrell of monkeys is a lot of fun:). Randi and Mike went to their house and Tim and I went to visit Andy at work. We were behind bicycle bobs talking to him. I was watching a guy reading all the writing on my car. He looked thoroughly disgusted to see "my dick feels like corn" written on my windows. Thanks Carley! Haha. We then proceeded to my house. Him and I were alone there until my mom came home. I yelled "TIM HIDE THE DRUGS AND PUT YOUR PANTS BACK ON!" my mom called me a whore and then him and I left. I went to pick up my paycheck and got hassled by phil, what else is new. heh. So we bought candy with my "millions of dollars" and went to Randi and Mike's house. We went down the street to do grave rubbings at an old cemetary. I took pictures of cool looking graves. It was a good time. Mike was tired so he stayed at the house as Randi, Tim and I went to Ice House for root beer floats. We went to the New Castle Commons and played on the playground till we couldn't play anymore. It started to rain when we left. I brought Randi home. Tim and I drove around before i brought him home. It was a fun night

Tonight I have team captains meeting for R4L. I hope my team has made a lot of money. *hint*hint*... After that I'm not sure what I'm doing. I think I'm just going to watch CSI, clean my room and go to bed early.

You truly love Carley.
You consider Brittany your true friend.
You know that Sarah Fuller is always thinking of you.
You'll remember Sam Eagan for the rest of your life.
You secretly think Randi G. is creative, charming, and a bit too dramatic at times.
You secretly think that Peter is colorful, impulsive, and a total risk taker.
You secretly think that Nick is loyal and trustworthy to you. And that Nick changes lovers faster than underwear.
You secretly think Amanda is shy and nonconfrontational. And that Amanda has a hidden internet romance.

I'm Gonna Kill Myself! [14 May 2005|01:00pm]
[ mood | suicidal ]

Foreign Movie Project Name: Jenn Mason

Title, year and country: Jisatsu Saakuru (Suicide Club), 2002, Japan
Director: Shion Sono
Awards Won: Jury Prize "Most Ground-breaking Film" (www.imdb.com)

Describe the characters, the main conflict, and its resolution:
There were no real main characters. When you thought someone was a main character they would suddenly kill themselves. I guess the main conflict was the media brainwashing the youth into thinking that either they're worth a damn or they're better off dead. The resolution was that no one was worth a penny ass shit so they all blew their heads off, o.d.'d, slit their wrists, hung themselves or my personal favorite, jumping in front of trains or off buildings. The resolution was to kill yourself.

Give an example of a powerful camera shot.
Personally I loved the shot when the girls head burst into flames after getting run over by a train. Or the shot where the little girl watches her mom chopping her hand and wrist to shreds. Another favorite was when all the kids were chillin at school and 30+ kids jumped off the school and splattered their guts all over the window. It was endearing to see they were all holding hands.

Give an example of a camera angle and its effect:
I loved the high angle shot of some girls who were clearly BFF's feet when they hung themselves together. When you don't want to go alone, bring friends! It proved to me that they did everything together. All the way to the end!

Give an example of a place where music is used effectively:
My ultimate favorite part was the beginning when the girls were jumping into a moving subway laughing and giggling and the music in the background sounds like a happy DDR es que song. It made me feel so warm and fuzzy inside. I was thinking about going to the closest subway and listen to the song over and over again! Or the twelve year old girls pop group that subliminally singing songs of suicide and how worthless you are and how your better off dead. I would buy their cd!

Give an example of a place where sound (not music) is used effectively:
Well personally my favorite sound effect was when they scraped an ear off the side of the school after all the kids jumped and it made a pleasant squishish sound. It really made the sound believable. It brought the suicide right into my livingroom!

What kind of colors are used? Why?
The color red is used quite often. Blood red that is. How else to portray the beauty of suicide without gallons of blood everywhere. Why not have a pool of blood after a massive genocide of ourselves!

Give an example of a scene where the editing is intense:
Well the first scene when 54 school girls jump in front of the subway the extreme close-ups from limb to limb was intense. All the chaos and anarchy of the on-lookers. Each blood stained face to the next. It was intense alright. An epileptics nightmare to be precise!

Give an example of a scene where lighting is used to create a mood:
Oh, oh, oh! I have a perfect scene for this. A dad comes home to find his whole family has killed themselves. It is dark. All you see is his face and the words (in japanese) "Track 8: Jump Here" written in blood on the wall behind him. It really showed the true him. Especially when moments later he put a bullet through his head. It really showed the audience how close he was to his family. He didn't want them to be in the afterlife without him. I can't believe they didn't just wait till he got home.

What kind of costume do the actors wear? Why?
Typical Japanese styles with blood stains. It's hard to shoot a scene where someone is blowing their brains out without getting a little messy!

If there are special effects, are they effective?
Blood, Blood, Blood. Everywhere! Very effective it showed how bloody suicide can be. It sure made me realize to put towels down before I kill myself!

What point does the film seem to be making (theme)?
Well, if you decide to kill yourself, do it with friends, it's twice as much fun! If you feel like your life is meaningless and your existence is less than futile, then it probably is. If you think that you would be better off dead, then you probably are.

What is your recommendation for this film?
I highly recommend this film for everyone. It tells a strong message, that you don't deserve the life that you're living and you should just end it now before you do something you'll regret. Don't think of you friends and family because they are also worthless and they should learn from your example. If you can't make a connection to yourself, than you don't realize how great your life is, thus making you a complete waste of a human.

How does this film compare to American-made films?
I don't think that an American is smart enough to make a movie this fucked up.



Post if I will get an 'A' passing this in!
