Ok well after I got 'home' Saturday (I think that's when I posted...), I started feeling REALLY dizzy. I took my temperature and it was 102.8oF so I went to bed. I woke up again at like 8:00pm, and felt very cold & sore. My nose was stuffed and all that jazz.

I went to outpatients yesterday, and saw Dr. Ganapathy. He told me I have a cold, and thus have to 'ride it out'...

I'd be happy if I didn't have this horrible cough, that decides to bother me the most when I'm lying down >___________< thus I've been keeping very odd hours since Saturday (generally seeing the sunrise).

So yeah I had a weird dream last night/thins morning; I was hanging out with Armadei (no idea how come), and we where in this ornate, dark/hard wood room, with stained-glass windows running along the top of the room (like it was in a basement). I think it was in a church basement... But yeah, and she was standing near the doorway looking out, and I was standing in front of this burrore with this big mirror. I was washing my teeth from a wash-basin on the buror. That was the whole dream. I then woke-up coughing and Minnow jumped on top of my chest and went to sleep, as if somehow having a 10lb cat sleeping on my chest would help my cough. It did help me go back to sleep though. I find Minn makes me feel at peace/happy ^^; 'specially when I'm sick.

Also everything I eat tastes like eating styrofoam cups....all I can remotely taste is 'salt'...and this really burnt tasting lukewarm Tim Horton's coffee I got because of "Roll-up the Rim to Win".

----

I did get to finish Ouran Host Club! I was kinda dissapointed in the no TamakiHaruhi kiss scene I so expecting for the end, but other than that it was one of the most complet series endings I've experienced in awhile. "Good Job!"__Kei from MoonChild

Wendy also borrowed For Your Eyes Only, and A View to A Kill so I could enjoy some James Bond while I'm mostly in bed. She also bought me some icecream :D

I've been craving Arizona green tea....just when the whole town was out 'cept for 3 cans ;-; so I have to make them do me until the next shipment comes in.

Oh and my PS2 is somewhat working with my 'old skool' (1973) TV in my room. I think because I played Bujingai from 12:30am-3:45am yesterday(?) morning, dispite it being a wank, and going all wonky. Made me give up playing the Infested Burrows midway though, and Cloud Sea.

I hope it coopertaes long enough for me to watch A View to A Kill and Ghost In A (The?) Shell (I borrowed it from Cullen like a month ago, but haven't been able to watch it due to DVD player & PS2 issues.

For Your Eyes Only was s'lright, I didn't like how they portrayed Kristatos and Columbo...not 'thug'-like enough. I tend to think of the Bond movies as not being the books. Like they are just 2 unrealted James Bonds. It keeps me from getting annoyed at all the 'hype', and almost total disregard for Ian Fleming's original stories. Speaking of which I need to borrow Casino Royal from the Library some day soon.

----


I'm going to renew my RuneScape members someday soon. I would have done it tonight, but with this cold, I can't remember my card# or password.

----

I'm on...I think chapter 11 of The Vampire Lestat audiobook I have atm. Word to the wise, don't listen to it in the middle of the night, while having a fever....it gives odd dreams.

btw I am starting to like the actor who is reading it. he did a good job getting into character during two parts so far; the part where Lestat looks at himself in the mirror after he changed, and the part where he notices how tiny the feet of the rat are.

I still like the abridged Interview With The Vampire audiobook I have the best, because of KEEPING THE FRENCH ACCENTS AND FRENCH PRONOUCIATIONS! I hate how in The Vampire Lestat (ect.) they call Louis 'Lew-is' instead of 'Lou-ee'...even though they still call King Louis 'Lou-ee' >_< Louis is from NEW ORLEANS, not Chicago....or some other such non-French place.

I also like it because of the actor uses a good voice for potraying 'out-of-it' Lestat.

----


Yes many rambles because I haven't been online in a few days, and I'm in a good mood dispite being sick with a cold.

----

I drew this last night while listening to said audiobook, at said late hour. I was trying to draw a semi-ralistic picture of Zinnian. I like how it turned out, even though it still looks kinda anime-ish...I did capture the 'life' I always think of him as having.



I'm really glad to be taking a realism-drawling course at GPRC come September for Visual Arts *sigh*

That's an interesting dream. Reminds me a little of the dream where I was in a cathedral as Armand.

I haven't listened to any of the Vampire Chronicles audiotapes, but I have heard people complain about the mispronunciation of Louis before.

Speaking of an 'out-of-it' Lestat, someone posted a recording of the entire Lestat musical here. The catch, and the reason for calling it 'Tatsel' ('Lestat' backwards), is that Drew Sarich, who normally plays Armand, is playing Lestat. Because Drew's used to Armand, some people have commented that his Lestat is a little too psychotic in places; I like his Lestat, but he is much better as Armand. (Even if he doesn't look like Armand physically.)

[This part is especially fun; it's the scene where Lestat and Gabrielle enter the church right before Armand's introduced. Lestat's "Where are you? Why are you not stalking us?" is hilarious.]

*lol* I had a dream having a slight thing to do with The Vampire Lestat aswell, only it wasn't Lestat. Like it 'looked' (my mind's image) like Lestat and for some reason I had the sense it was Lestat but he acted nothing like him o_o He was just like randomly in it...and I was Zinnian in it and I was supposed to make subs for a bunch of people, and there was this other guy who was like Lestat's nurse/lover for some reason...Oh and I (as Zinn) cut my own hair short....I blam the cold/flu I had.

I find the voice actors (is that what they are called for audiotapes?) all good, but none I've heard yet seem to capture the characters well ('cept for on the rare occasions Lestat). Here is a sample it is from a abridged version of IWTV and a unabridged version of IWTV, it contains my fav' quote for some reason "Stop looking at my buttons" Only when I think of it I would have said "God damn it Louis stop looking at my buttons!" ^^;

[*lmao* Now if only I could get my voice that high XD]

Louis? :p

Oh and I (as Zinn) cut my own hair short

That part reminds me of when Claudie tried to cut her hair in IWTV. But I've also had characters who randomly appear in my dreams, yet act rather OOC. Especially while ill.

I suppose audiotape readers are called voice actors; I'm not sure what else you'd call them.

"Stop looking at my buttons."

XD I forgot about that line.

I like the reader in the first IWTV clip better; the second one reads too slowly for me.

As much as I dislike Armand in the IWTV movie, I think it did a good job capturing Lestat, Louis, and Claudia. That version of Louis is still my favourite Louis. My favourite Lestat would be as Hugh Panaro portrayed him in the musical and my favourite Armand is as he's written in The Vampire Lestat and The Queeen of the Damned. (I've never found an actor who really captures Armand for me, though Drew Sarich in the musical comes close.)

And while we're on the topic of the Vampire Chronicles, this website has excellent anime-style VC fanart and is pretty much how I've come to imagine the characters' physical appearance.

(There's also a Vampire Chronicles reference in the first Buffy episode from season five - "Buffy vs Dracula".

Buffy: So, let me get this straight. You're Dracula. The guy, the count . . . ?

Dracula: I am.

Buffy: And you're sure this isn't just some fanboy thing? 'Cause I've fought more than a couple pimply, overweight vamps who called themselves Lestat.)
