Reborn - Yamamoto CHIBITA

First Week of Work, Blades of Glory, and On Siblings.

Did, however, manage to catch Blades of Glory for the second time on Monday with mangy_mongrel (my partner on ice in crime with regard to our love for this movie), lacewood, rukia, harajukufuuri and elvaron. (I love watching El smile during movies) We had an amazing, amazing audience: not even Pirates got this much cheering and applause!

I was reading this really fascinating article on Jon Heder (plays Jimmy in Blades of Glory, where he's blond, blue-eyed, pretty and the kind of uke that's "Scratch deep enough, and you'll find steel" - therefore automatically my favourite), where he was talking about his identical twin brother (I really can pick them, and unconsciously, too), and said, "But my brother and I think alike, know everything about one another, and when we get together, we block everything else out. Nothing exists in our world except for us."

I guess what I love so much about that Jon Heder quote was that it made me think of the people in the world who know you all the way through and through, and more than that, it made me think of the people I'm genuinely comfortable with, in the all the way down to my bones comfortable with them comfortable. I have that with very close friends and, probably because I've known them only for all their lives, with the siblings.

One of my strongest memories of the three of us together is one holiday where my brother came back from Australia the morning after I returned from London, and the other brother came home from the army on the same day. I was sleeping off the jet lag when they both came home, and when they came back they went straight up to my room, where after groggy hellos, one of them fell asleep on the couch and the other one on the floor.

And I don't think we said it in words then, but in that moment was Now we are complete.

You Just Broke MacElroy's *Mind*. Well, whatever there was left of it.

I'm sorry, guys, but this Blades of Glory/Kingdom Hearts 2 trailer has broken my brains in enough places to warrant a post of its own. It's a KH vid set to the Blades of Glory trailer, and it is amazingly, amazingly well done. The kicker is the lip-syncing, it's pretty darned perfect. It has Sora as Jimmy and Riku as Chazz (sobs, hysterically - Riku's too beautiful to be played by Will Ferrell), but it is perfectly done. The final stab through the MIND was the perfectly sync/timed Riku lip-sync to THAT Black-Eyed Peas song. And the keyblade-fighting? Kickass. They even included that incredibly Riku-Sora post-Final Boss scene. ♥

And, ah, just ignore the opening of the trailer that says it's PG-13 because it means Penguins Fly for 13 Seconds. "Some Material May Result In Irregularly Cold Weather", it warns, "This Movie May Turn You Into A Penguin."

And my dearly beloved Tales of the Abyss, would it kill you to quit with that incredibly creepy every breath you take vibe, because turning up this story while I'm searching for Blades of Glory fanfiction on ff.net, smacks too much of Every claim you stake, I'll be watching you.

That aside, it really is a story I'd look at on summary alone: "May the One Who Would Size Glory fall to their blades". Full of spoilers, has Luke and Sync, and I found it pretty fascinating.
