Taking a little breather

I had a really freakin' weird dream about Pinhead from the Hellraiser series last night... so to celebrate, I watched the first Hellraiser. I with I'd had the others.. I would have made a marathon of it. Pinhead's really freakin cool >..>

So.. I also watched Gothika today. It was... ok :/
It had sooo much potential to be a mind-fuck film, and it just really wasn't. It got to be really predictable halfway through the movie, and by the end I was watching with a boring expression thinking "wow.. I never saw THAT coming.." The first half really had my heart pounding, though. It sucks that they didn't mess with your head a little more at the end, though :(
Anyone who has seen it that wants to talk spoilers is welcome.
(I might take the time to mention here that I spent half the movie staring at Bernard Hill wondering why the hell his voice was so familiar. Hail Theodin, King of Rohan! XD )

I'm in the middle of watching the Legend of Suriyothai right now. It's really good.. but REALLY freakin' long. I'm not much on political intrigue.. so it's a little dull to me.. but it's a gorgeous film and pretty interesting despite the 30-40 people I think I'm supposed to be keeping track of XD It's period film about a time of civil unrest and unstable government in Thailand. I have no frickin' clue how long this is, but I've been sitting through it for a while, and I needed a break somthing fierce.

My cat... is pissing me off.
I need... more Hellraiser. I will sit through an hour and a half B-horror movie for 5 minutes of Pinhead. Yes, I will

RO Nonsense
Yes.. most of you don't play Ragnarok online.
I know most of you don't care.
But.. as I am currently pissed off with everyone in my main character's guild, I haven't had many people to share my good fortune with. Akuma and have had some excellent luck lately in finding rares. Some monsters drop really good stuff. Almost every monster in the game also drops a card with it's picture on it. These cards can be put in armor, weapons, etc to make them better. Each card does somthing different, and some are very, very rare, and can be sold for a lot of money.
Yesterday, Akuma and I found a Khalitzburgh card. We were able to sell if for 23 million zenny (currency in iRO) Most people are lucky to ever own 1 million. So.. we got really freakin' rich, and I was able to buy a silly headgear for my monk character that I've always wanted. A Blinker (blindfold) :) Now my monk runs around kicking ass blindfolded. Guess what that headgear does? It protects you from being blinded XD Who cares? It looks cool!

Anyway... shortly after that, Akuma found another Whisper card.. which is another really rare card that is probably fetching around 3 million on our server right now. Then, when I was partied with a freind, he found a mummy card.. another card worth over a million, and I found a Swordfish card. (To my knowledge.. not worth much.. but it's cool!)

Cards have a 1/10000 chance to drop. On the server of iRO that I play on, there is a double-drop rate.. but that still gives us only a ONE in five-thousand chance of finding a card. So that's pretty damned cool.

>..> Yeah. I know. Who cares. XP

I was talking with a freind tonight, and we started talking about Vampire Hunter D. It reminded me of the fact that my idiotic cat pretty much shattered my Kotobukia "Nightmare" statue. It's a beautiful figure, but it's depressing every time I look at it. Another peice fell off it the other day, and I really need to pull the glue out and try to re-attach it. (incidentally, I didn't find a place that had it in stock.. so I'm very sad. Not that I would have picked up another one right now anyway... but yeah.)
When I was looking around to see if I could even find it again if I wanted to replace it, I ran into this. Talk about nice!! That peice is incredible!
