I still got it, babe!

After like, a million years since I've read a greek myths book, there is still some knowledge inside me!! I search wikipedia => lakhesis. Something is wrong with the Spanish entry, search the info in my books, AHAH! I was right.

My personal background (I read Robert Graves like whoa!) just sets me on alert with these kinds of mistake. I guess that's why Percy Jackson was such a dissapointment, it cannot get the facts straight. Ok, I can *understand* when you change some facts in order to spice things up a little (come on, Euripides did that), but when there are medular facts on stake (eg, a virgin goddess magically having a child) I immediately get annoyed. Freud understood very well how greek myths summed up human passions, so changing the most important facts just ruins everything that is beautiful with mythology.

ah, there I go bitching again.

Ok, so to sum up:

Watch the movie "Immortals", it was pretty good. And it had a few easter eggs for us connoisseurs to boot. INCREDIBLE scenarios, excelent costumes, the actor for athena was an anorexic brod, a nice story, and just great! A good surprise!

yay and no.

Been watching the 2011 tenipuri festa. Turns out, the copy I had in my computer was corrupted. Woe is me. so I had to watch in online. It's better than the 2009 version in that they put more of an effort in doing silly things. I just keep laughing uncrontrollably with the "Fly High" stunt. Silly things were what made tenipuri and tenimyu (...and rajipuri) funny, I feel I could watch a tv series just with that x3

this is me, dear lj! I will never let you down!

Finally something interesting at ontd

Very very interesting note at ontd about fanfiction and popular authors. I knew that Anne Rice was all kinds of crazy, but.. uh... you're rich...

But Meyer really surprised me. I agree with her on some level, but authors are forgetting that it's all about fun. I do wonder why people don't write more original stories though. Ah, but I read THIS , a book written by a fanfic author and all-around otaku, and quite frankly thought it SUCKED BIG TIME. So maybe Meyer is overrating authors. And, of course, there's the "it's so easy to get published!!" thingie.

And I don't even read fanfics orz I like comics/manga and old books. Modern books suck, but I still want a new book that will make me think different. Even the translations were better back before the internets *sigh* Don't make me talk about "Illion" or I'll cry *sigh*

Sorry, major rambling XD;
