Stacy Was Here :
Back at the Beginning

Wednesday, October 29, 2003


so today has been good, here are some good things about today so far:

a) I got my midterm back for my 20th Century Women Artists class, and I got an A on it :)

b) I'm going to start tutoring for Human Genetics, which will be more experience for me and some more fundage, hopefully

c) I talked to the begining photo prof, because it's really hard for non-Art majors to get into Art classes, and he said he'll let me in, just come the first day and remind him that I've already talked to him about it =D me=very excited... I am SOOOO excited about this, because I have heard tons and tons of good stuff about this professor, even before I came to Humboldt, so this will definitely be an uber-cool opportunity for me.

new game

So now that I have a few minutes, I'd like to introduce a new game I like to call "moron hunting." The idea is simple... just go to
amazon and select a movie that might seem controversial (or at least might be controversial in those states that don't touch coastline.) Go to "see all customer reviews" and then sort by "lowest rating first" and see what you fine... I warn you, this won't do anything to raise your esteem toward your fellow man, but it can be funny... for example:

for "To Wong Foo":

None of the three male stars in this movie were convincing homosexual-transvestites. I found it very hard to watch this movie. It's not funny at all and the propoganda in it is so obvious(I suppose that's a good thing). It does nothing but try to brain-wash any and all things that are natural about being a real man. While I don't believe in being violent towards homosexuals, I do believe that accepting this unnatural behavior, as somehow natural, is the most damaging thing you can do to those who practice this life style. To truly love your neighbor is to help him and to help by warning them of the dangers of their life style. I was so surprised to see these three men playing these roles. It's hard for me to see them as real men in anything else now. A real man will absolutely hate this film. I warn you, you can potentially be brain-washed if you watch it. I don't recommend this movie at all !!!

for "Jesus Christ Superstar":

This film portrays Jesus Christ as less than perfect. A Christian knows that Jesus was perfect on Earth and is still perfect. Satan did try to tempt Christ, but Christ in his sinlessness, did not fall. The attempts to make Jesus seem like just another human kind of guy are not true to history. Jesus is the son of God - He is God - He is the Father, Son and the Holy Spirit who lives in those who trust in Him for salvation.

I have read reviews wherein friends have stated that, religious beliefs notwithstanding, it was a good film. How in the name of Hoot Gibson can a movie about Jesus be regarded as anything but religious. People are going to watch it and draw conclusions about the Life of Our Savior. "For all you care, this bread could be My Body!" Are you kidding me? Where these the words with which He instituted the Eucharist? I had a Catholic tell me that Jesus isn't REALLY present in the Eucharist. It's just a "symbol!" He may have gotten this impression from watching "Modernist" heresey like this movie. I like to watch movies about my Faith, however, I reached a point, in my life, when I said that I would never again watch one about Our Lord.

[ed note: Did she really say "how in the name of Hoot Gibson"?!? I defy anyone to read these without adopting a southern accent!]

for "Stigmata":

Please listen to me and do NOT see this movie, let alone buy it. I saw this in theaters and was disgusted. I am a HUGE movie buff and have never walked out of a theater, but I did on this one. Im not a religious person at all, but halfway through, I was worried for my eternal soul. My mom used to tell me that "the devil puts out movies and if you see them, youll go to hell." I laughed it off of course until this. I was whispering prayers with every blasphemic line. Please give NO money to this utter trash. Please I beg you!

for "Harry Potter: CoS":

Harry Potter should be called Harry Psycho.
I have read all the one star reviews, and I must say that I totaly agree with them. The Harry Potter movies, and books are nothing but a one way ticket to hell. I should assume, and I assure all of you people out there, that those who watch the Harry Potter movies, and read the books are mental pacients who need to go to a psychiatric hospital for which they'd never fully recover. This movie is bad, because it promotes nothing, but darkness. I can sense a grave disturbance from this movie. The kid actors who are in this movie cannot act their way out of a shoe box. They don't know the difference between reality and fantasy. I'm warning you that you should stay as far away from Harry Potter, as far as possible. Read this, and learn."

[ed note: might take this one a bit more seriously if they could spell "patients" correctly.]

for "Harry Potter: SS":

Harry Potter attends Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry and learns to cast spells, make potions, use divination and the make up of a witches broom. They also talk to the dead and use sorcery routinely. They are introduced to animal/human sacrifice, drinking blood, Mother Goddess theories, evolution, reincarnation, divination, demon possession, Celtic and Druid religions and even Satanism. A child reading the books will learn witchcraft as if they were studying Wicca. The only difference in Harry Potter is that the spells are "made up" words in Latin with a humorous touch, but are not real spells. However, the intrigue leads the child to wanting to learn the same things as Harry, which can lead them to learn correct spells on witchcraft websites linked to Harry Potter. If the interest is there and a child gets excited about learning to be "like Harry", they will find a way to learn sorcery.

[ed note: what a load of f*cking bullshit... where do people get this shit?]

However artfully veiled it may be, it cannot be denied that this film is the next step in a government conspiracy to confuse America's youth into putty that the government can mold to it's will! They throw these dark references at the audiences, yet make light of it all. How can it be anything but an attempt to soften our youth up to the ideas that the government will be forcing upon them once they go into Phase Four of The Demosthenes Plan? Boycott this film or free speech and, dare I say it, free thought shall be destroyed!

[ed note: ok, who allowed this man to own a computer? seriously, people... "free thought will be destroyed... unless you THINK LIKE ME" *roll eyes here*]

Everybody loves special effects in the movies, but these Harry Potter films have one special effect parents are missing. When the movie is over the seeds of witchcraft are planted into the mind of their child and a wicked life will result. What evil goes in, will come out. Repackaged witchcraft for children, that's all it is. For example; many convicts in prison practice witchcraft with many wizard tatoos and demonic symbols. There is no such thing as good witchcraft as this movie tries to portray. The special effect is yet to be an unpleasant surprise upon the next generation having grown up with witchcraft firmly implanted and recognized as harmless fun. The crime level is going to rise. Just look at the evil spells the Harry Potter movie uses to propel the plot; drinking blood and other witchcraft evils. Hardly innocent and harmless! Is this what you want your children to watch? Woe to those who call evil good and good evil.

Dear Shakespeare,

I dearly love your works, really... Much Ado is one of my absolute most favoritest things ever, and I tend to see things in terms of your plays. The paper I am currently having to write about your works, however, is currently sucking my soul and my brain out of my head with a straw, which is more than a little distressing. I am sure that a week from now I will go back to loving you utterly, but at this exact moment in time, I wish that you had never been born, or at least that you had never learned to write.

That is all.

typical me, typical me, typical me I started something... and now I'm not too sure

so I misinterpreted some things and it turns out I'm not the social outcast I thought I was. silly me.

I wouldn't venture to call things okay just yet. Ask me in a few weeks when I'm done with this huge Shakespeare paper and have gotten a grade on it.

right now the idea of wandering into the forest and falling asleep under a tree is really appealing. I don't think anyone would notice me being gone, though, which is probably for the best. I am filled with despair as I haven't been since high school, and we all know what happened then.

I feel completely rejected and alone, like all my classes are hopeless and redundant and I just can't be arsed to give a shit about them. I feel like I'm never going to get out of here, that time is playing with my mind and the next year will last at least 10, really. I feel like no one actually sees me here and the only time certain people seek me out is when they want a ride somewhere. There's really only 2 or 3 people here who seem to notice I'm alive anymore. I live with one but I don't want to bother her with requiring company. It's not her fault if I've suddenly become unwelcome in our mutual social circles, especially when I don't even understand why.

I miss home so much I can't even think about it without my eyes watering. Tonight I was tempted to not even go back to my dorm and just continue driving south until I got home and then promptly forget HSU and everything in it. Unfortunately I care too much about a stupid and virtually meaningless piece of paper, a quantitative measure of my intellectual abilities, and I can't bring myself to upset my mother who said that that was the only thing I could do to disappoint her.

I just want someone to listen and give a shit without telling me what I'm doing wrong and without trying to offer advice. I would also like it if someone would take my side and not find ways in which I am wrong about everyone else. But I can't find that where I wanted to.

After this stupid midterm and shakespeare paper are due I'm just going to sleep until the next damned assignment. It's ok if you don't call, I can berate myself and find mistakes in myself well enough on my own.

I hate it here. All I want is to go home, and I know its bad because I've started trying to think of things that would justify a withdrawl from all of my classes so that I could just pack up and leave and resume at another cal state closer to home. I don't think I'm actually in danger of doing anything rash, but if this semester doesn't hurry up, who knows.

So I've been a bit remiss lately in updating this here weblog, but I just can't find anything that's really interesting enough to really write about... just my boring, every day life, really, and missing my boyfriend and my sister, and unless you're a) in the same or similar situation, or b) a masochist, I'm sure that most people are utterly sick of hearing me talk about it. *sigh* It's in some ways easier and some ways harder now... on the one hand, I feel more secure about everything than ever, secure in knowing that it's for real and I don't have to worry every second about little bitty things... and on the other hand, he's become such a huge part of my life, such an integral part of my concept of security and all that, that it's really hard to be away from him. But at least now he'll be home when I get there, and all will be well with the world.

I went to the nutritionist the other day, and she said I'm actually doing alright, the main thing I have to do is spread my carbs out, eat meat and fats with them because it's not the meat or fats I have a problem digesting/breaking down, it's the carbs... but yet it's not quite the atkins diet, it's not as severe as all that, it's more leveling things out... normal people are supposed to have something like 50-60% of their diet come from carbs, but given that I have this insulin resistance, it's more like 40% carbs, 30% fat and 30% protein for me, which I can live with... The worst thing, though, is that she said I have to cut back on the milk... and lo and behold I'm starting to, but the problem is that I crave it like burning... *sigh* totally owns my soul, just so you all know. I have a total of 5 books coming, though one of them is for my research paper in 20th century women artist... (of course, I did just change my topic to knitting as a feminist art, so lets not think I'm being too studious, really... I just figure if I have to eat, shit, and breathe this paper for the rest of the semester it might as well be something I enjoy, right? Besides, then when I'm knitting, I can say "I'm not procrastinating, I'm doing research..." heh.)

Got the brightest, most colorful letter in the mail today from a friend... absolutely cannot wait to answer it... of course, I do have to wait... until Friday, after I turn in that horrible crit theory paper that I am dreading like death... *sigh* stupid school, stupid homework, stupid distance, stupid everything.

calgon, take me away indeed.
