Game Manuals: Ultimate Fantasy Literature?

Fantasy literature did not appeal to me at all when I was younger. It was annoying to have to sort through books about unicorns and castles when I was just trying to find a book about hive mind aliens and putting the internet into a female human body.

But now I love it! After reading some of Margot’s amazing game manuals, I finally realized how dark and brutal and totally entertaining fantasy literature can be!

Hengao for Your Body by Angelina Jolie

Remember Kyary Pamyu Pamyu and her hengao (facial contortion beauty art) revival last year?

Well, I’m so happy that this trend has finally made it to the US, in BODY FORM via Angelina Jolie’s LEG!!!

Angelina kept sticking her leg out of this dress all night at the Oscars. It was goofy. Then I saw this today:

Gorgeous. It really got me thinking. Hengao is not just for your face anymore! Look out for some highly elegant/beautiful photos of me coming soon. And from you too I hope! I love how supportive Brad looks.

Studio Ghibli Screenings

ghibli castles in the sky
American Cinematheque is screening 15 (!!) Studio Ghibli films in Los Angeles. Actually, there’s only 14 more because the series already kicked off yesterday with “Porco Rosso”. But 14 is still a lot and some of them will be shown more than once. It’s going to be hard to choose which ones to see since I want to see them all. I think I’ll limit it to the ones I haven’t seen before. The event page has links to all the trailers and shows which ones will have subtitles and which ones will be dubbed. For your convenience (and mine), I’ve sorted the screenings by date below.

Underworld Awakening 3D Review

Underworld Awakening

Underworld Awakening 3D. Saw this. Liked it.

Compared to all the other Underworlds, this one had a really simple plot. The main focus was on Selene just killing everyone while looking like Trent Reznor. So you don’t really need to have seen the other movies to get it.

The new character is cool.

The lycans (werewolves) were really claymation-ey, which I enjoyed (monster throwbacks).

Even though there was only one scene where I noticed the 3D, it was worth it cus we saw it at Regal and they do that amazing rollercoaster of snacks thing. LOVE THAT! 100 gazillion times better than that boring actors in robotic flower-chairs thing they do at Edwards. HATE THAT. Why are you showing me people pretending to be entertained instead of just entertaining ME? So dumb.

Best V4G1N4 Technology of 2011

1. Vibrance Kegel Device
kegel device
Because, like most ladies, kegels are #1 on my list of things I need help doing. Here’s to rock hard vaginas in 2012! Purchase product here. (via Cheeserland)

2. Vibrator Alarm Clock
snorgasm
So just put this in your vagina along with all those other things you store in there all night long. Why? So you can wake up to a “snorgasm” duh. Which I’m assuming is supposed to be a good thing, even though it sounds more like “So how was your date last night?” “So boring!! Talk about having multiple snorgasms.” “Hahahaha.” “Lol.” “Lol that sux.” Purchase product here. (via Geekologie)

ANTM BONUS!

I just discovered an America’s Next Top Model contestant’s OLD music video! It’s from one of prettycoolland’s favorite all stars – Lisa D’Amato. Or should I say La Puchinetta.

She got runner up for best Pot Ledom video on last week’s ANTM.

Pot Ledom

Wow! I hate to say it: after Bianca left America’s Next Top Model, all of the remaining girls began to support one another’s abilities. In this 17th Cycle these All star girls had the chance to make an awesome viral video but Tyra had to put her Mug all up on that! All up on every one of the girls vids.

Viral Ty Ty

Anyway, Allison had the best vid! Her vid had guest judge, Game, totally attracted to her weirdness. Way to go!

Remember girls, We will achieve greatness together!

Los Angeles Korean Festival 2011

The Los Angeles Korean Festival this year was wackadoodle. It totally topped last year’s. We shopped, ate, made religious crafts, got wasted, met a bunch of cool drunk girls and drunk ajushis and mostly just feasted our eyes on awesome stuff…

Margot really wanted to take a picture with this guy after we spotted him smoking a cigarette by the porto-potties. He was way excited about it and had his business card all ready to hand out to us. No, he’s not a soldier for hire. He’s a plumber, duh.
