cobaltcannon: Game Of Death - Bruce Lee (GOD - Bruce Lee)
Trying to study hard tonight.

I really sucked at the last test.

I can't concentrate to save my life though. So I blog vent and procrastinate.

You wanna know a recent rude awakening I had? Waking up to an earthquake. A small one, but nonetheless waking me up before my alarm and I was admittedly pissed off as I didn't get enough sleep. But it reminded me to perhaps put my delicate devices closer to ground level in case they fall the next time.

Also, just to put this on record, I found this amazing indie produced movie short for The Green Hornet a few weeks ago, which totally stumps Seth Rogen's piece of shit. The fight choreography is pretty tight, believable, and packs a punch. Just as the duo should be represented (not like the bumbling idiot that Rogen played for the Hornet). What I love most about it though is the sinister tone, drawing a bit of Nolan's style, keeping the classic touch from the TV series from the 60s and yet adding a modern twist.

Which made me wish that Nolan took The Green Hornet project instead, with the result turning out much more appealing, giving the story a realistic, gritty feel like TDK trilogies. I mean, The Green Hornet '66 already collaborated with the Batman show back in the day, so just imagine how a Nolan, modern-esque version of that would be like...  I can only dream.

Friday night was great for the most part. Had a trip out to Asakusa with the school. We visited the temple and tried out luck with the o-mikuji for the fuck of it. Of course I got one of the worst of luck. Tied up that bugger up and hope these nonsensical voodoo bad luck spirits won't follow me around. If anyone really believes in that.

Then we ended it with some great nabe. Aside from the awkward as fuck stares Leslie keeps giving me (and I'm surprised he even came out today seeing as he missed class on Thursday), the day was great, and it was great without me downing a pint.



I'm trying to quit smoking (again) and dropping the nightly drinks, not only for health reasons, but to save me having to go out front every lunch break to hang out in the smoking area with that bastard, and also to save my wallet! Cigarettes are ridiculously cheap here, not costing more than ¥420, whereas in London you're looking at quadruple the price, so the temptation to keep smoking hangs thickly every time I pass the conbini. But no, no I need to really start stepping the fuck up. Due to the limited opportunities around me, I've been making use of my room for my weight reps and stretching. I'd prefer more space, but this is honestly all I can do for now.

I've got so many commissions to do, and I have three tests next week. I'm still pissed off that Interstellar has such a delayed release date, but I've arranged an outing on the 26th to see it in IMAX, which would be on a Wednesday where tickets are cheaper. The weekend before that too we'll be heading to Disney Sea. A lot of exciting things happening this month, so I can't complain about all the work I'm due to submit.

I've also noticed a rise of The Green Hornet cosplayers, at least on the Tumblr tags. In the recent cons, some people had been cosplaying the 1966 TV version. I only hope that I'll be able to find a Hornet cosplayer when I do Kato next year in May. Keeping my fingers crossed.
