The new Batmobile... From next year's Batman Begins:

The new Batmobile

Sunday, March 21, 2004

I'm studying right now for my Senior Film Theory midterm (well...not RIGHT NOW right now, obviously), which will be this Tuesday, and you don't realize how many freakin' theories there are about movies. Psychoanalytic film theories, structuralist/poststructuralist film theories, deconstructivism, feminist film theories, semiology, queer theories (guess what THAT one is about) and Oedipus trajectories... All this correlates to describing the story and structure of a film and how audiences react to them. The feminist film theory, personally, PISSES ME OFF the most...since there are SO MANY pages to read about it in my textbooks (That, and the texts about Third Cinema and Third World Cinema. Yes, there's a difference between the two)!! But I like the pyschoanalytic film theory and the Oedipus trajectory... because those concepts objectify women and make them subservient to men. Just kidding... about my sexist remark. But IT'S TRUE, about what I said about those concepts! Hey, blame that on Sigmund Freud and Jacques Lacan! More on them and their explanation to why most women have bisexual tendencies later. Don't believe me, ladies? Read up on the profiles of most import models online!


UPDATE: Did any of you see the 8:00 PM episode of The Simpsons today? It spoofed The Phantom Menace with a movie called Cosmic Wars: The Gathering Storm. Despite the fact The Simpsons is like, 5 YEARS LATE in having this major parody...this episode gave a hilarious indictment on the prequels and George Lucas carrying more about digital technology than storyline. Pretty funny. So anyways... General Grievous is gonna rule in Episode III! He's gonna be the NEXT DARTH MAUL! (Thinks about what happened to Maul at the end of Episode I...) No wait...

Don't you guys like it how I always contradict myself over the prequels? One minute I'm calling Lucas a biatch for the failure of The Phantom Menace and Attack of the Clones, the next minute I'm posting up several photos of that General Grievous fella on this page! Make up your mind, Parman! Anyways, it's almost 10:00 at night, and I have to get back to studying!!! But before I do... Here's an old pic of Britney Spears. She can't sing for squat, but I'd still do her.


Bang me baby, one more time

I just got back from a Toyota dealership in Hollywood, where I met Laker back-up point guard Derek Fisher and got his autograph...for the 3rd time. The first time I went to a Fisher signing was in April of '99 (at the Niketown store in Beverly Hills) and the second one was in April of last year, at another Toyota dealership in Santa Monica. If only Shaq and Kobe conducted as many autograph signings...if they conducted autograph signings at all. Oh well. So far the Laker players I've met is Fisher, Rick Fox, Devean George, Tyronn Lue, Greg Foster, A.C. Green and Orlando Woolridge. I also have autographs by Laker commentators Stu Lantz and Chick Hearn (R.I.P.), and longtime Laker game announcer Lawrence Tanter. No wait... I don't have Tanter's autograph... I just took a photo of him when he also made an appearance in Hollywood today. I also took pictures of some Hooter Girls and Laker Girls who showed up with Fisher and Tanter at this afternoon's signing.


UPDATE: To mark the one year anniversary of "Gulf War II" (to quote the cover of Time magazine the week after the war broke out last year), there was a huge protest rally a couple of blocks down from where the Toyota dealership was at. Just letting you know.

UPDATE #2: Never saw the movie Honey, but Jessica Alba is BANGIN'!!

UPDATE #3: I'm watching a Halloween special of The Simpsons right now...where one of the three mini-episodes is about the dolphins who take over Springfield. Hi-larious!... Didn't know dolphins can impale people with their beaks (Groundskeeper Willy)... Bitchslap people with their flippers (Apu)... And beat someone to death with a beach ball (Kent Brockman). And TALK! Sorry, I wouldn't be talking about this if I wasn't on the computer while watching TV, haha!

I just logged onto Friendster.com and Yen's profile is no longer accessible since I'm not in her personal network of friends. I'd have to add her as a buddy in order to check out any new info that she added...but since I'm not gonna try to add her (I probably know what her response is gonna be if she got my request), I guess that means I can no longer see what's up with her as I speak-- nor can I send her personal messages through Friendster since I need to be in her personal network to do that. I wonder why she changed the settings to her page? Hmm... Not to sound paranoid or anthing, but could it be because of Yours Truly? She was probably offended that I didn't respond to her e-mail after I wished her Happy Chinese New Year two months ago (check my January 23, 2004 journal entry to read up on that).


And while we're on the topic of The Girl Formerly Nicknamed Denise, and who was the inspiration behind the character 'Jeanine' in my Hard-Cores film scripts and Envious, many of you are wondering how I could be so caught up with this gal...since the only thing that happened between us was a measly hug (which I initiated) and several e-mails. Well, I guess you can say that the answer LIES IN THE MOVIES. If Ben Stiller's character can still be in love with Cameron Diaz's Mary after not seeing her for 13 years in There's Something About Mary, and Anakin Skywalker could be in love with Padme when he hasn't seen her for 8 years in Attack of the Clones (YOU GEEK!), then why not me and Yenny? In the words of Stiller in There's Something About Mary: "Crushes don't last for 13 years, do they?"

One more thing about Yenny... If there's one reason why I should miss working at Disneyland (yea I worked there, got a problem with that???), it's because of its location. I don't miss helping out the visitors/tourists (or 'Guests' in Disney-jargon)...they're a bunch of rat bastards who asked the stupidest questions to Cast Members. What I do miss was working with the other Cast Members, in which most of them were pretty cool, and the fact that the Happiest Place On Earth lies in Orange County. I like Orange County... They didn't make a TV show on Fox about the place for nothing!! So anyways, why do I like the O.C.? It's because of all the girls I knew who either lived or worked there. Liz Fujimaki, my actress from The Broken Table, lives in the O.C., but I'm not gonna tell you where, Desiree—this girl I used to like in high school—works (or used to work) at Brea Mall...although I don't know if Brea is part of Orange County (update: it is)...and Yenny lives only a couple of miles away from Disneyland!! How do I know? Cuz she listed down the city in her now inaccessible Friendster page, that's why...and that city is pretty damn close to Disneyland. Nancy, a girl I met during my job training at Disneyland last June, and who's Vietnamese like Yen, lives in the same city as Yen (Nancy now goes to UC Riverside)! Although it was hot like a biatch while I was working up there last summer, the one thing I liked about hangin' out on the 6th (and uppermost) level of the Mickey & Friends Parking Structure at Disneyland was its awesome view of Orange County. On a clear day you could see Knotts Berry Farm in the distance. But it's mostly because of the chicks I knew personally that makes me fond of the O.C. (Yes, I AM insane.)

Liz, I wanted you to be in my film Envious!! But Sheena did a nice job. Wendy, the actress who bailed on me after the first day of shoot, can rot in hell [SHE didn't live in the O.C...but I still wouldn't mind (insert sexually explicit verb here) her, heheheh]. Desiree, why did you have to get married?!!! Eh, oh well. Yenny, why won't you let non-close friends check out your Friendster page?!!! Bah. And Jasmine? I do believe Ms. Mai mentioned somewhere that she lives in Anaheim. But I won't do anything crazzzay. Unless she wants me to.
()()

UPDATE: Elle, one of my actresses in Envious, called me up last night telling me that she got the DVD copy of the film that I mailed to her last Friday. Elle said that she really liked the movie, and that she showed it to her Advanced Production class at Cal State Fullerton, and that her classmates really enjoyed it. She said they laughed during the whole movie. And she also said she liked the dolly shots and that Arturo, my camera operator, did a good job on--you guessed it--operating the camera. Thanks Elle, I really appreciate the compliment. Makes me want to forget the bitterness of not getting into the Spring Filmmakers Showcase, which will be on May 29 at school. I ain't attending.

WELL that certainly sucks... The rest of my website is currently inaccessible because I've exceeded the monthly transfer limit. Come again? If Blogger had that same limit, I wouldn't be able to access this journal page each week-- let alone each day. Thanks a lot, Crosswinds. (5 HOURS LATER...11:28 PM) Okay, it works again. By the way, I'm well aware that the HIN pic of me and Ms. Mai is no longer at the top of this page. It's slowly moving towards the bottom of my journal...where it will soon be destined to find its final resting spot somewhere in my archives (actually, click here to find it, and there're more pics here and here). I know, I know... I'm trippin'. But I always come up with something weird to write about late at night.

Verizon DSL SUCKS ASS!!! Anyways, more on HOT IMPORT NIGHTS... This is pretty much why I said in my March 7 entry that I'd talk more about Jasmine Mai a few days after the show. It's because I just picked up the photos last Wednesday, heheh! Anyways, I won't say anything else except to post up the pictures that show why that night was dope...


UPDATE: Jasmine found this journal page!!! Since she posted the address for this webpage in her Yahoo group for all her hundreds of other members to see (August 2006 update: Jasmine's old Yahoo club no longer exists)... I just wanna say what's up to y'all and hope you're having a bangin' day. By the way, you need a Yahoo account to access her message. That, and a membership in her club. Later, Jasbaby!

Me and Jasmine Mai

Lakers: 113, Magic: 110 (OT)... Did you guys see tonight's game against Orlando??? That's precisely why Kobe needs to be traded!! JUST MESSING!! 38 points in the game, and most of that (24 pts.) during the 4th Quarter?... #8 RULES! So does TMac (37 pts.), but he's not on the Lakers, is he?

Saturday, March 13, 2004

I've just added the COMMENT feature to this journal page!! So comment on anything you want in here...just make sure the message is polite, intellectual and/or (mostly 'and') just plain kissing my arse...or else I'd have to track you online and hunt you down, Jay & Silent Bob-style...


UPDATE: Click here to read about Ten Surefire Ways to Tick Off Your Coworkers at your job! NOT that I should worry 'bout that right now, heheh...

Below are three pics that I found online dealing with Episode III. The one on the left, taken from a British newspaper, is of Anakin Skywalker after he is burnt from lava after the big lightsaber duel with Obi-Wan Kenobi, and the photo to the right is of the Jedi killer General Grievous...how he is gonna look in the movie...not of his crappy animated version that fans will soon see on the Cartoon Network. The pic below these two is concept art of Darth Vader being born as the Emperor looks on. And of course, another pic showing Grievous from different angles. If you think the general doesn't look cool enough (or at all), keep in mind that there are reports that this (SPOILER... Highlight to read.) deadly leader (who is half droid / half alien) of the Separatists' droid army uses four lightsabers simultaneously in the film. Guess how.

Anakin Skywalker, General Grievous and the rise of Vader

UPDATE: Since TheForce.Net didn't provide spoiler warnings for these aweseome artwork, I'll post these drawings here... Go to TheForce.Net to view these in their original size.

Top-left pic: ILM-quality artwork of the Anakin/Obi-Wan lightsaber duel over lava
Middle-left pic: An altered shot from the SW: Insider magazine with General Grievous ready to kick some ass
Bottom-left pic: An awesome drawing of Grievous, also with his lightsabers decked out
Right pic: Presumably the teaser poster for Episode III
Last pic: A cool comic book drawing of Grievous, taken from the Official Site

Awesome Episode III artwork

HOT IMPORT NIGHTS!! I just came back from the Hot Import Nights car show at the L.A. Convention Center about half an hour ago, and needless to say...it was awesome! I finally met the lovely Jasmine Mai in person! More details on this a few days from now... The other models that I met and took pictures with was Natalie Keen (Miss HIN 2004), Francine Dee (for the third time since 2000, heheh), Christine Mendoza (for the second time since 2001), Joyce Lex, Sandy Saya (she definitely does NOT look like Yen in person!!) and Kay Sivilay...who I thought I met at Hot Import Nights in Del Mar (in February of 2000), but I was mistaken. This was the first car show Ms. Sivilay made an appearance at. The only lowpoint of the show was Cora Linn not being able to make it to HIN since she said in her Yahoo! group that she had to fly back to Texas (where she lives). But she did say she'll be at another import show next month. Good grief...I have to save up money for that show AND Asian Model Palooza (which is on March 20th)!! Assuming I go to that one... By the way, enter these models' websites at your own discretion!

And YES, I DID take pictures of cars at HIN. I took a picture of a silver Lamborghini (I loved that car since I was around 7-8 years old!) and Porsche (ditto!)...as well as a fixed-up Hummer (also silver). What's pretty interesting is that you can put new rims, a chrome exhaust, NOS gas tanks, a spoiler, a DVD player, a Playstation 2, a broadway rearview mirror AND new shock absorbers on a 2000 Acura Integra GS-R, and it STILL won't be worth as much as a Lamborghini or Porsche! Not even close...


Batman Begins

UPDATE: This just in from batman-on-film.com: Gary Oldman, the dude who played Dracula and a Russian terrorist who punked Harrison Ford in Air Force One, plays Commissioner Gordon in Batman Begins!! That's gonna be cool... And don't forget about Katie Holmes being the damsel in distress in this film... David Julyan, Chris Nolan's composer on Memento, will be doing the music for Batman Begins. The last time I saw Memento was about three years ago, so I don't remember how Julyan's music sounds like.

Two photos of the Humphrey rock that was studied by the Spirit rover
(Two photos of the "Humphrey" rock that was studied by the Spirit rover)

TAKE THAT, OPPORTUNITY!! This article talks about past signs of water being discovered at Spirit's landing site. JPL's on a role... Below: Opportunity shot this quick movie showing the Martian moon Deimos passing in front of the sun. Not as dramatic as the solar eclipses we have on this planet, but pretty cool anyway.


Deimos passing in front of the sun

UPDATE: BLAME IT ON JANET JACKSON!!! Anyways, this CNN article talks about shock jock Howard Stern predicting the demise of his radio show as soon as next week...after the FCC slapped him with an indecency fine after he talked about anal sex and all that good stuff in a show several days ago. Of course, this is fallout from the Janet Jackson Super Bowl incident last month. Good job, bizatch!

Science and hot women come head-to-head.  Somehow that sounds pretty explicit. =P

Here's the list of songs scientists at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (near Pasadena, California) have used at the beginning of each work day for the Mars Rovers. These songs were used to wake up the NASA personnel controlling the two robots, and to describe the tasks planned for the day ahead. (By the way, a "Sol" is the scientific/geek term for a Martian day...which is slightly longer than the 24 hour days we have here on Earth.)

Songs by Beyonce, R. Kelly, REM, Beastie Boys, Bon Jovi, Weird Al Yankovic, Bob Marley, Motorhead, The Cure, Queen, Red Hot Chili Peppers and Thalia have been used, which means not all rocket scientists are stuffy, un-cool geeks. They're crazy for using an R. Kelly song, but they're not stuffy, un-cool geeks.

GEEK UPDATE #1: Check this out, the rovers are so intelligent, they wrote Blogs about themselves! Pretty cool.


GEEK UPDATE #2: Mars ain't the only planet that's being visited by space probes this year. On July 1st, the Cassini spacecraft is expected to enter orbit around Saturn for a 4-year long mission. This photo is the second one the probe has taken of the ringed planet (from a distance of 43 million miles) during its voyage.

Different photos of the Opportunity landing site showing signs of past water activity
(Different photos of rocks at the landing site showing signs of past water activity... This Space.com article goes into in-depth detail about the evidence)

WATER ONCE FILLED THE LANDING SITE of the Opportunity Mars Rover. Click here for more info. NASA scientists to naysayers who criticized these missions in newspaper editorials: "F--- you!!! This CNN article sums up the discovery with its first line: Mission Accomplished. By the way, in case you're wondering why I'm so caught up with this Mars Rover business, it's because I gave a presentation on Mars in my Geology lab class at CSULB about 4 years ago, and you-know-you (see post below) said my presentation was the "best one" over all the others that were given that day. And I concluded that presentation by mentioning that these rovers were going to launch in 2003. She brought good luck to the missions.

Here I go again... Acting all craaazzay. Or obsessed. Or both!! Anyways, the pictures below are of Sandy Saya, an attractive (or should I say... sexxxay?) model of Laotian flava'. I just felt like uploading these pics since I thought she looked good in them. That...and the fact she bares a striking resemblance to Yen (especially in that last photo to the right)--so I wanted you guys to see them as to have a clue to why I keep ranting on-and-on about her after all these freakin' years. Of course, Yen doesn't have a little mole on her left cheek like Sandy does (or does she? It's been so long!!)...THAT, and Yen isn't as scandalous as she is (at least not that I know of... ). You'd have to see these pictures in their entirety to know what I'm talking about. If you can't handle 'em...don't look at the photo sets from which they came!!

Curse your feeble minds!! Anyways, I'm kinda annoyed that there's a script error on this page. Blast! I need to go to the Template section to see where the error is located...but the message that pops up on this computer doesn't say (the exact line of error was shown in the message popup on another computer I used at school last week). Oh well. You moron genius!! Sorry... I just figured out how to do that line-crossing thingamajig.

UPDATE: I found this on another Blog:

Five Womanly observations:

1. Woman are not high mantainence, they just want you to find some small way to show your appreciation that no one else would or could ever have thought of, you know, be impossibly creative.

2. Woman can't tell you what they want; that would ruin everything, you have to know what she wants...see #1.

3. The biggest turn off to a woman is a man who is just comfortable. Everything is not just fine.

4. Women are easily depressed and they are always searching for escape and want the man to provide it.

5. Second only to allowing a woman to be borded, not having a plan is the highest crime a man can commit.

What does borded mean?
