The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies - Billy Boyd: The Last Goodbye

I am not a hardcore LOTR fan by any stretch of the word, but the movies—and their music—are so beautiful that I feel...almost healed by it.

Half-suffered through a Royal Caribbean production of We Will Rock You while on the cruise (it picked up near the end). The musical version of "I Want It All" was a standout, though, and the official Queen version is downright glorious even though I did not recognize Freddy Mercury at first.

Some have commented that the song reflects an essential human problem—literally, we want it all and we want it now. But I think that if you read the lyrics in its entirety, it's clearly an anti-establishment song for the youth in rebellion. As my parents went to the musical with me, I was thinking that perhaps I could translate the cultural significance behind the song to them, but then I thought of Cultural Revolution (which was their version of youthful rebellion) and decided that it was really not a good idea to raise the subject... *facepalm*

在youtube上发现了一个很短很短的Michael/Gabriel的MV,Take Me to Church。(The only heaven I'll be sent to ... is when I'm alone with you)

……虽然吧这剧的脑洞略不讲逻辑+特效效果颇为悲剧+男女主的颜我怎么也喜欢不起来+男女主的关系很无聊+总觉得光没打够,但我还是真的好喜欢这里面的Michael和Gabriel!>_< 真是萌得不要不要的……势均力敌相爱相杀(官方盖章)的双子兄弟,再加上圣经天使的背景……简直没法不萌啊这是。

但是Michael本命(?)如我,不管是哪一个官方(官方同人?)版本,从来就没跳过Michael和Lucifer的坑……按理说Lucifer的人设我也是会喜欢的但是我一贯彻底无感……是因为后来人设崩得太厉害了吗。→_→

说起来Dominion里面没有Lucifer完全不科学。既然已经续了第二季(虽然我也想问how),可以期待一下Lucifer么……鉴于我不担心人气爆高的Michael,对于第二季的愿望就只剩下请Gabriel继续炫下去吧!

突然好想拿Pentatonix & Lindsey Stirling的《Radioactive》来给Michael和Gabriel剪MV啊……这种时候就羡慕Iris的苹果本上自带傻瓜剪MV软件了……

以及其实我前天翻自己的AO3账号觉得我那两篇Gabriel/Michael写得还可以这种事情我会乱说吗……

十四年过去,重刷《悲惨世界》。故事还是那个故事,歌也还是那些在iPod上循环的歌,心情却是完全不一样了。坐在那位置上,脑子里不断字幕状念想着的却是三本书:The Dictator's Learning CurveThe Crowd,还有Night Watch

关于角色以及主打歌 )

关于其它:
  • 全剧第一次看哭的地方居然是《A Little Fall of Rain》……

  • Marius和Cosette仍然一百个莫名其妙……他们的部分完全就是“啊啊啊求快进”。

  • 《Turning》很棒。

  • 全程的打戏都假得惨不忍睹。

  • Valjean要死的那段不错(虽然我还是很烦Marius和Cosette……)鬼魂版的Fantine比活人版的好多了……

  • 总觉得《The People's Song》和《Finale》可以更壮烈一点的……

  • Do you hear the people sing?

总结:故事4.5星,制作4星,音乐5星,唱功4星,演技3.5星。

两个月过去了,我仍然是听到情歌就要死要活。今天坐在Lange's啃着西班牙香肠卷,听到了John Legend甜掉人牙齿的All of Me,差点就没泪流满面。(然后就去牙医那里钻牙齿了……)

人家说谈起恋爱智商骤降,不是开玩笑的。
可是啊……可是啊……就像某只猫说的……
一度愛されてしまえば、愛してしまえば、もう忘れることなど出来ないんだよ。

我简直要被刷成(球场上限定)马特乌斯同志的粉了这可如何是好。Orz

叹气。就像我和[livejournal.com profile] asukajude说的那样,人长得好看,球又踢得那么好,那几乎是不管做什么事情都可以被原谅的。

当然了,重点词是“几乎”。

就算如此,也完全能理解当年的德国少女们为什么对他前赴后继。

(每次认真写CP就会被刷成对家的粉,我想这大概不用抢救了……)

Pacific Rim - Drift (Blake Perlman f. RZA)

We feel it all, we feel the rise before the fall
Ain't no dividing us, we feel it all, we feel it all

We feel it all, the rise and fall
We drift inside each other, all we have is one another
United, we can never fall

当然了,如荔枝同学所言,这歌太甜……不管是哪个宇宙的马克,不闹离婚怎么好意思……把这文取名叫Together We Can Never Fall什么的完全就是误导观众嘛。

不过对我来说,drift里面又怎么能不甜呢。
fatima: (3)
算了,诚实一点好了。只能说我永远都是死在某些点上——不是德国人就是俄国人。

过去二十四小时里在无限loop某古早《罗密欧与朱丽叶》电影里的曲子What is a Youth(电影原版,Glen Weston翻版,手嶌葵翻版)。

What is a youth? Impetuous fire.
What is a maid? Ice and desire.
The world wags on...
A rose will bloom, it then will fade.
So does a youth, so does the fairest maid.


这impetuous fire和ice and desire简直不能更戳人。

然后就好想拿这个来写马克文。

当然还有“how are you how old are you”的泰戈尔《园丁集》No.41……那属于不知道怎么摘抄因为每一个字都打在我心坎上

然后也好想拿这个来写马克文。

反正这几天的结论就是该写马克文。(呆滞望天)有太多料需要补的感觉……但是也至少还有点料可以补。不像隔壁花滑的库萨………………

The Gardener No.41 )

托B站的福,昨天终于看了吉卜力的《借东西的小人阿莉埃蒂》。好喜欢!画面太美了!音乐太棒太棒了!主题曲又优美又激昂,属于可以无限loop的那种(而事实上我现在的确就是在无限loop)……

在豆瓣上看到一个“你没看过这些电影居然还想追我”(………………)的活动。虽然这名字的确很中二,但想一想,的确有那么几部电影是让我喜欢到心坎里去的(不同于“哇哇哇真好看真帅真酷真经典”这种喜欢,比如《教父》或者《指环王》三部曲)。于是列了十部出来,然后发现里面有五部女人主角的感情片,加上五部男人主角的动作片。(好吧《爱在黎明破晓前》和《いま、会いにゆきます》应该算是男女主都有……)

按照发行日期倒排:
Blue is the Warmest Color/La Vie d'Adèle – Chapitres 1 & 2 (2013)
Skyfall (2012)
Star Trek XI (2009)
Kingdom of Heaven (2005)
Be With You/いま、会いにゆきます (2004)
Amélie/Le Fabuleux Destin d'Amélie Poulain (2001)
Snatch (2000)
Before Sunrise (1995)
Heavenly Creatures (1994)
Indiana Jones: Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981)

最近WoW没打了不说,就连Civ 4也卸载了。除了又在三线操作Dragon Cave(……)还去买了Civ 5正在下(真是毫无长进……)。至于Minecraft就还是……先搁着吧。

在TV这边,Netflix上的L&O存货被我看得差不多了,因为Netflix上不全。>_< 最近也在找新剧看。除了在看BBC的火枪手,也因为Zach McGowan演的Charles Vane而在追(算吗……)Starz的Black Sails黑帆。(顺便说这剧的OP超级赞!超级赞!



这男人算是符合我对于肌肉系男人的一切标准:帅,有肌肉,目测器大活好(……),性格爽快,虽然野蛮却有意外的痴情一面(……)。

但是他没靠谱的CP。我对于老板娘已经转黑了,而Max怎么看也不会爱上他(当然他应该也不会爱上Max……)。Anne Bonny一看就是Jack的人,和Max有一腿的可能性也蛮高。而Jack Rackham……剧里其实挺萌的,但是剧里再萌,我一想起历史,顿时就只有省略号…

于是应了那句话:帅到没朋友。(别说没CP,就连朋友都没。)

没朋友也就算了,但貌似WB上黑帆众一般都是萌Billy/Flint。我挺喜欢Billy的但是没法想象他的CP(类似于OP的Luffy?)。而少有的几个喜欢Vane的姑娘们也都觉得Rackham/Vane可以有。对此我真想说…………哪里可以有了啊!!!(含泪掀桌)

There are two things I'll always remember about Nagano 1998: The men's singles figure skating, and Team Ski Jump. (As for the ladies' singles figure skating, all these years later I'm still trying to forget.) Watching that linked video just brings tears to my eyes.

Sochi Update, of sorts? )

改天应该把那个脑洞整理出来的,各种版本各种支线……

另外L&O也要继续开工了耶……

睡觉的情况还是让人绝望。不过这几天去看爹娘过春节,大概也许能扭过来?

Oh and, as much as I love Frozen's 25 language sequence, I still love the English version by Idina more. Amazingly enough, I don't like the Japanese version all that much....I think it's the translation that bugs me. The Chinese versions (and by that I mean both Mandarin and Taiwanese) are surprisingly good.

As long as there is struggle, there is hope
As long as there is life, there is fighting
As long as we fight we are standing
As long as we are standing we won't give up

He's my sun, he makes me shine like diamonds....



I've only heard two of her songs (this and Off to the Races) and I've adored both. The naked longing in the lyrics somehow manages to touch the romantic in me.

And, because I'm still hopelessly in the thralls of Thassarian/Koltira, I am applying EVERY SINGLE LOVE SONG to that ship. Yeah....probably should not go there.

Even worse, I am also still in love with the plot bunny where Thassarian has to raise Koltira's elf-kin kid after Koltira dies in Undercity. WHAT IS WRONG WITH ME.

Joan Baez's version of "House of the Rising Sun" had my skin crawling (IN A GOOD WAY):



AND "DIAMONDS AND RUST" OMG!!!

Netflix recommended Vanity Fair (2004) to me. Couldn't finish watching it even though Jonathan Rhys Meyers is such eye candy, but the opening theme by Sissel is just hauntingly beautiful. I never cared for the original poem much (sorry Lord Byron), so it was a truly pleasant surprise to hear it as a mesmerizing song.

She Walks in Beauty
by Sissel / Mychael Danna

She walks in beauty, like the night
Of cloudless climes and starry skies;

And all that's best of dark and bright
Meet in her aspect and her eyes:
Thus mellow'd to that tender light
Which heaven to gaudy day denies.

She walks in beauty, like the night
Of cloudless climes and starry skies.

和小七在练小号(武僧的Flying Serpent Kick实在太帅了!!!太帅了!!!),于是又碰到了安多哈尔任务链。这个当然不能不做。做了第一部分的任务后感想是Hex没说错,北极之后的Koltira的确挺孤苦伶仃没啥牵挂(除了老萨)。另外还发现了一个以前忘记的细节:当Koltira说我不会对你手下留情的的时候,老萨就笑了,鞠了一躬,然后说“我很期待”。鞠躬好帅~!

总之做玩后因为想和Hex讨论,我去youtube翻了下安多哈尔任务那段场景的录像,结果……

有个玩家(好吧我后来发现此玩家是OMFGCATA的Jesse Cox大神,怪不得他的声音听起来那么熟悉呢)在CTM beta时候就录了全任务线过程,而在在萨寇对话那里,大神(性别:男)插话:“这简直就像《西城故事》。”

——Wiki上的《西城故事》:《西城故事》的內容改編自莎士比亞著名的愛情悲劇《羅密歐與朱麗葉》,描寫兩位相互愛戀,卻身處敵對團體的少男少女如何跨出兩者間的鴻溝,卻又不幸失敗的故事。

而在两人对话结束后,Koltira不是对玩家说“不许泄露消息”么?Jesse Cox则画外音说:“我才不在乎[你通敌]呢,你们两个在说话的时候我可是在唱歌!”(《西城故事》是音乐剧……)话说你俩不就是在回忆你们年少时代‘一点都不gay好朋友一辈子’的事情吗?” (“Dude, I really don’t even care. I was singing while you guys were reliving your......youthful [and] I'm sure......hetero life-mate moments.)

大神你真懂!!!!!你三年前就已经懂了!!!!(此人在女王棒打鸳鸯的时候评价:“真是个讨厌的女人啊。”)

当然,考虑到当我google Koltira图片出来的最前面的图片都是Thassarian的……我只能说……大家都懂的……

Anna Christine performing House of the Rising Sun.

Love the amazing voice. Love the amazing song. But in what world is it appropriate for a 10-year-old to do a public performance where the central subject matter is sex trade? There are thousands of songs they could have done, why that one?

竹の歌
(后经任贤齐翻唱为《天涯》)

遙かな山から吹きつける風に
ひれ伏しながら けして折れはせぬ
押し寄せる雲から打ちやまぬ雨に
ひれ伏しながら けして折れはせぬ

私がなりたいものはといえば
地下に根を張る あの竹林

月の日 火の日 水の日 木の日
金に踊って 土と日に還る

私が住みたい国はといえば
地下に根を張る あの竹の国

ゆく夏来る夏 照りつける熱に
埋ずもれながら けして消えはせぬ
青に黄に緑に 移りゆく旗に
移ろいながら けして消えはせぬ

私が覚えて残せるものは
地下に根を張る あの竹の歌

私がなりたいものはといえば
地下に根を張る あの竹林
