update on The Ring
children of dune - leto 1
Yes, that scared me. Isn't it good I took a nap? As I won't be getting ANY SLEEP FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE.

(you'll note my melodramatic use of bold, italics, and underlining as emphasis)

But on the other hand? (I'm a silver lining kind of girl) Totally has put things in perspective.

I'm going to eat some cookies now. Perhaps several. Perhaps a bag of. Then go find thete1 and girlinthetrilby and whine until they convince me that it's just a movie.

Or, you know, whoever's silly enough to stand still on AIM when I appear.

Yep. First day of the rest of my sleepless life. Right here.

I feel your pain. That movie terrified me and (because I'm a wuss) it still does. So hey, we can be sleepless together.

It scared the hell out of me.
I went with a friend to see it in the theatre, and because we got there only a little bit before it started, we had to sit separately across the aisle.
I covered my eyes at several points. When he drove me home, I made him wait until I fumbled my way indoors (went to late show, forgot to leave on porch light - bad mistake) and found a cat to go inside first.
And, and, and I made it a point to drag someone else to see it within the same week.
Wasn't that deceptive end excellently creepy? "You weren't supposed to help her."

Crap. Now I'm going to be sleepless, too.

Good grief, yes. The night I saw it, I woke up twice, and the second time I had to get up and move all the clothes draped over the chair because I was seriously spazzed.

But, I'm a wuss. :)

Love The Ring. Love, love love it. But that's probably BECAUSE it terrified me.

So damn clever.

Evil icon! Must avert eyes!

And yours is just...woah, hypnotic...


Spirals are fun! Not like the multitudes of Evil Rings going around...death-wells, Tolkien.

I love spirals. My favourite notebook has a spiral on the front. My favourite keyring is a spiral.

Wow, that sounds really pathetic.

No, no, who doesn't enjoy a good spiral? That's why the best psychedelic posters in Spencer's Gifts or similar stores are spiral-themed.
They just draw your eye in and in...

They do! And you just CAN'T look away...

edana_ni_emer's comment below contains a link to a "Ring" site. In one section it talks about "Ring" books - and one is meant to be called Spiral.


Excellent! Shall have a look shortly...thanks.

Scary, scary, SCARY, scary, scary.

I bought the DVD.


One of those movies... I saw the trailer and said " WHOWWWW! Me will not see." I'm happy I didn't. Am sleepless enough as it is already, what with all the Evil Guys making noises in the apartment all night and then mysteriously vanishing when one goes to look for them...

You know what's REALLY scary? When your fucking PHONE RINGS as soon as you get done watching that movie. Which is EXACTLY what happened with us the night we rented it.


See? I kept saying I wanted to see it but never rented it. So one day the bf comes bopping home with it. We watch and I revoke all his movie renting rights. He cannot rent any more movies by himself. Yeah, I said I wanted to see it but I didn't actually pick it up and rent it did I?

Then afterwards, my computer is in the basement. The basement! So I got on it but was fearful for a few hours.

And what did the little boy mean? I mean, if you weren't supposed to help her what the hell were you supposed to do? Chat with her down in her death hole?

Awww...yes, that was...disturbing.

Heh. Yeah, I didn't sleep for about two weeks after I saw it. I'd rented it with a friend of mine who was visiting, and on the morning of the seventh day he unplugged the TV, turned it to face the wall, hanged a towel over the screen, and took all the batteries out of the remote. For another week after *that*, every time I snuck up behind him and whispered "She never sleeps..." into his ear (which I made sure to do often) I'd end up peeling him off the ceiling. :-) I was really tempted to put on a white dress, comb my hair over my face, and crawl toward him from the directon of the TV, but he's bigger than me and I didn't want to end up squashed like a bug.

And this http://www.somrux.com/ringworld/ is an excellent site on all things Ring related. :-) Including info on Ringu and all sequals and series created thereof. And the novel. And the manga. And... well, you get the idea. Do *not* go to Interferon's site at night. He has stills from the movie that *will* get you jsut as creeped out as watching the movie did.

Thanks for the link and the warning. *g*

Sigh. I love your icon - that whole final section, Escher stairs through 13:00 is my favorite part of the movie.

I will not sing
I will not sing
I will not sing

Aw, crap.

#What kind of magic spells to use?
Slime and scales?
Or puppy dog tails?#

You're infectious!

Thunder and lightning
Something frightening

You remind me of the babe
What babe?
The babe with the power
What power?
The power of voodoo
Who do?
You do
Do what?
Remind me of the babe...

I saw my baby
trying hard as babe could try
what could I do?

my baby's love had gone
and left my baby blue
noooobody knew...

and back to the beginning...

What kind of magic spell to use?
slime and snails and puppy dogs' tails

How you've turned my world, you precious thing
Your starving eyes (?) exhaust me

Everything I've done, I've done for you
I move the stars for no one!

You know, a labyrinth is a kind of spiral, turning inward to the center. And rings are spheres of a sort - a clear round center.

Maybe Samara was a goblin girl (or Sarah's prececessor gone really, really bad).

Your starving eyes (?) exhaust me

You're staving me, exhaust me


I move the stars for no one!

THUD! I mean...THUD!

You've run so long
You've run so farrrr
Your eyes can be so cruel
Just as I can be so cruellll

Maybe Samara was a goblin girl (or Sarah's prececessor gone really, really bad).

Well, goblins allegedly have supernatural powers...

But I do believe in you
Yes I do

Live without the sunlight

Love without your heartbeat

I--I--I can't live within you...

I can so see Jareth in Laurell K. Hamilton's Gentry series.

I can't live within you


I, I can't live within you

Haven't read it. Take it it's good?

Er, well, it's full of pretty faery people having really hot sex. Basically, porn with a bit of plot.

Mmm. Sounds like my kind of thing!

Your starving eyes (?) exhaust me

You starve and near exhaust me.

Why yes, I am a long-time Bowie freak. I did read all the lyrics on the cassette liner notes.
