They're Playing Our Song!

Reborn - Yamamoto CHIBITA
Went skating with mangy_mongrel today. IT WAS GREAT FUN, especially when I arrived just in time to miss the Zamboni (don't get me wrong, it's fun, but whenever I see it going round and round I go on fire with impatience and think Let me on the ice already! and to see an solo figure-skating exhibition by the skating school, and they were the most extraordinarily talented kids I've ever seen. It was proper figure-skating, and they'd saved the best skater for the last - the last girl to perform was so good that her performance pretty much was ballet, gymnastics and acrobatics on ice. I'd never seen anyone so good with my own eyes before, so this was certainly an experience.

Wanted to seriously floor certain people, as detailed here. Nobody trips up my Chazz and gets away with it.

But there were the most adorable five-year-old kids learning how to execute scarily-professional-looking skating moves in a training session after MJ and I were done with skating, so we hung around with the sizeable crowd to watch the kids train. While the rink was swarming with people today, thanks to it being the weekend, it also means that the young skaters come to train, so you get to see some incredibly impressive performances (and it's just training!).

But the best part of it all had to be when we went for pizza later (man, does skating make you hungry!), and while we were having said pizza, Areosmith's I Don't Wanna Miss A Thing comes on in the restaurant. ♥ THIS is like walking down a street with your replica and having a tone song store blast KARMA. It's like visiting the arachnid exhibit and having someone's radio blast the theme from Spider-man! IT WAS SO GREAT. The Great Fandom Jukebox was sharing the love!

Blades of Glory review that amused me to no end. I love my country, really: for all our intense straightlaced-ness and intensely conservative attitudes, reviews and comments like this turn up once in a while and make me amused to no end. I remember, once, when a local reviewer was discussing Pearl Harbor, and said that the Ben Affleck's character/Josh Hartnett's character tension was so blatant that it made him go all "Get a room, guys!"

time to say goodbye translation

By way of mushrooms, I discovered that the Heroes World Tour is going around come end-August this year. Cast and creators are going to go to Paris, Munich, Tokyo, NYC, Hong Kong, London, and Singapore. *grin* You could almost play "What Doesn't Fit Here?" with this list, but I am very, very, very glad. ♥ The only way I can think of for the Paris/Tokyo/NYC/Hong Kong stops to happen virtually simultaneously (excluding that neat trick of Hiro's) is that the cast is going to have to split up. Still, this is so great!

Caught Hot Fuzz (shh, I know it's been out for ages, but it just got to where I am) with lacewood and the sibling - it made me grin from ear to ear, for reasons here. If you, like Yi, are a fan of gunfight movies, check out the promo images for Clive Owen and Monica Bellucci's 'Shoot 'Em Up'. ;)

LOL the soundtrack sounds hilarious XD I love that they included all of the best dialogue segments. Am so going to hijack the skating rink sound system someday (with you, of course ^_~ distracting the authorities with Princess pirouettes~) and blast Lady Humps XDDDDD.
23rd-Jun-2007 05:35 pm (UTC)
It is! *beams* A few significant songs aren't actually in the soundtrack, so I added them in for the sake of completeness. I Don't Wanna Miss A Thing and My Humps isn't in there, and neither is Time to Say Goodbye, the soundtrack for young!Jimmy skating to at the beginning of the movie. ;) I put the dialogue on the iPod and play it obsessively. It makes me laugh.

WE COMPLETELY NEED TO HIJACK THE SKATING RINK SOUND SYSTEM. Virtually all the songs they play are oldies (which I happen to love, but which sometimes makes me act in an entirely embarrassing manner. Like saying I'll leave the rink to rest, and I come back running and saying, "I have to get back on the ice! They're playing My Girl!")

They played Justin Timberlake's Sexyback as I was getting off the ice for real, though. ;)

With that many stops in that many days, all I can say is: Heroes get jetlag too.
23rd-Jun-2007 05:49 pm (UTC)
I can completely get behind the message of your icon! CAKE TO ALL MEN! And women, too, hopefully! ;)

*LAUGHS* I thought the very same thing! In fact, with all the hours and time differences, I did actually wonder if they weren't splitting up the entire cast, so we never see the whole lot in any one country at the same time. I'd rather they take a little longer over it than try to make it Around the World in 7 Days, but it's ALL good as long as they make it here. ;)

I'm terribly familiar with Time to say Goodbye but I never really knew what it meant XD Thanks for the translations! I'm not too sure if it's what Jimmy skated to, it was the opening song at least XD

XD... they should have a track of My Humps: Chazz M. Michaels version XDDD

ahhahaha...that review... but do note that the reviewer emphasized that he was from Canada, the land of winter sports XD Comparing BoG with Waterboys...

If you're always there to watch the kids... (did you go to Jurong?) that means you hung around the north end of the rink ne? D8 *remembers vaguely that the training kids don't take up the entire of the rink*
23rd-Jun-2007 07:34 pm (UTC)
I never thought to look up the translations until this movie! *beams* I just wanted to know what it meant. ;) You're most welcome! ;)

*griin!!* They have the sample version! "Lady Humps"! But yes, Chazz should do the WHOLE SONG. But my brain might be irretrievably broken by then. ;)

Smart reviewer. ;) But he spells Jon Heder's name wrong! D: Still, I enjoyed the review! ;)

You're right! ;) The management cordons off a a quarter of the ring for the ice-skating school, and the kids learn their lessons there. (*grin* And yes, I was at JE - it's the only skating rink in this entire country - hence the sardine-can overcrowding - until Kallang reopens! ;) )

The local mall has an ice-skating rink, but I've never attempted the sport. I even went to the mall yesterday and thought, "This looks like fun! Why haven't I gone!" and then some kid with a hockey stick smashed into another kid near the rim and the coach yelled, "HEY, THIS ISN'T FOOTBALL!"

*laughs* Oh, what an entertaining article. I'll have to rent Blades of Glory once it is released to DVD. Sexual tension and laughs on ice. With your stamp of approval! How can I go wrong with that combination? It sounds like a lot of fun. :) *grins* And actually, my OTP on The Office once shared a touching figureskating moment during the 2006 Olympics, so clearly this sort of dynamic is destined to be in my ballpark. :P

30th-Jun-2007 06:59 pm (UTC) - *griin!* I like your icon, despite the fact that I have no idea who's in it. ;)
Prior to the Blades craze, I'd only made it on the ice twice, with friends. But, it is so fun once one gets over the scary learning-to-skate bit! If you haven't tried it by the time we meet one day, let's go together! ;)

Sexual tension and laughs on ice, indeed! ;) I would have cautioned you that you might not like this movie before you and Steve Carrell. ;) Now I think you might not dislike it. *grin*

Thank you so much for having faith in my taste! *grin* Despite me liking Shia LaBeouf. ;)

!! Your Office OTP! ;) And figure-skating in the 2006 Olympics! I MUST INVESTIGATE THIS! ;) ... omg I'm watching the video, and it looks so sweet! ♥ ... omg. I may end up OTP-ing this for the ice-skating love alone! ;)

I envy you ice skating~! <3
That is one of the few things I actually love watching- figure skating (ballet, too!). But there is so much more complication to doing such things on the ice, I still feel it is far too slippery!
30th-Jun-2007 07:02 pm (UTC)
I wish I were able to go ice-skating with you! *beams*

I've never actually watched figure-skating, come to think of it! ;) I didn't even know it was an Olympic sport - gymnastics is the only thing I watch during the Olympics, and that because the sibling is watching it. ;)

! I agree completely! O ICE, why must you be so very STUBBORN!! But heh, I tell myself, if it wasn't slippery, it wouldn't be ice. ;)

Jimmy, I have no idea how it is possible to love you more than I already do, but this post just proved that it *is* possible. ♥

Heroes World Tour!! =OOOOO I just saw this yesterday, and oh gosh Hayden Panettiere is so pretty and Masi Oka is so damn cute.

I have to watch Heroes in time for this and gooooo! ♥
30th-Jun-2007 07:17 pm (UTC)
XDDD!!! You should totally watch Heroes in time for this! Even if not, you should JUST COME ANYWAY and then get into Heroes after it!! ♥

omg I would love to see that link but I think it's mis-linked, it links back to my LJ? but omg yes, Hayden is really pretty, but I have more love for her onscreen dad because HE KICKS SO MUCH ASS, and omg Masi Oka. ;) FANBOY MADE the subject of FANDOM. ;)
25th-Jun-2007 04:09 am (UTC) - Re: Blades of Glory OST download! ;)
Thank yoooooooouuuuu~ Am going to burn this first thing when I get home tomorrow XD.
30th-Jun-2007 07:21 pm (UTC)
!!! *SNUUUG!!* I'm glad this was of help! ♥ Hope you had and will have FUN with this, and also that blasting the songs brings you NEW Blades fans!! ;)
27th-Jun-2007 01:22 pm (UTC)
I feel a little bemused about what they're going to DO on the tour. Hold concerts with song and dance routines? (HAHAHAHA HEROES: THE MUSICAL???) Give super power demoes? (HAHAHA LAME???) Or just hang around and do a lot of interviews and meet fans? XD I HOPE WE GET HIRO AND ANDO.

I guess logically speaking the odds point to the last, but... COME ON GUYS DO A SONG AND DANCE ABOUT SAVING THE WORLD!!!

(And aw, I dunno, Monica Bellucci looks kinda "omg skanky h0" in the photos, and it's not like I like Clive Owen enough to overlook this :()

30th-Jun-2007 07:24 pm (UTC)
XDD!! I think they're gonna hold press conferences and talk about the movie, and give Ominous Hints about the second season. ;) I just imagined it as one huge interview/press conference/fangirl session. XD

I hoped we'd get Nathan and Peter! Or just Peter. ;)


XD! I meant you to see it for the STORY, THE STORY!! Or lack thereof, but replacement with GUNS ABLAZIN'! ;) I have very few problems with skanky h0 images for girls, because I rarely am watching movies for them anyway: I just cheerfully IGNORE. I really loved Jessica Alba's character in Sin City - she was a stripper with a lasso, how much more skanky h0 can you get from there? But she was really sweet and ... uh, innocent for a stripper, and full of light and seen from a protective father-figure perspective, so maybe not really traditionally skanky-h0?

HAHAHAHAHAHAHA. DL this soundtrack, it is GREAT AND WONDERFUL and has Areosmith and TIME TO SAY GOODBYE. ;)
