Authors Are My Rock Stars

Leave a comment

It has been a while since I last had the time, the energy, and the inspiration to consume my thoughts into blogging.  I guess I have indulged myself too much on thinking too much–hmm?…whatever that supposed to mean. And every time I try to blog about something, my thoughts become disorganized. I can hardly pick the right words to say or I can’t even make my sentences collaborate with what my thoughts are telling me to say.

Yesterday, I happened to come across a movie entitled “The Raven” starring John Cusack as Edgar Allan Poe. “The Raven” is a fictional story about the life of Edgar Allan Poe, and his quest in finding the serial killer who patterns after his murderous intent from the stories which Poe writes. As soon as I finished the movie, I suddenly remember the poem entitled “Anabel lee”, which was written by Edgar Allan Poe. I had memorized this poem long time ago when our English teacher asked us to memorize it by heart for the graded recitation. It’s funny now that all I could remember from this poem are the words “kingdom by the sea”.

I tried to search more about E.A. Poe, and I found some very interesting quotes written by him. I somehow reflected and thought about blogging, which I haven’t done for a while. And while I was browsing, I happened to see this image:

Authors are my rock stars

I agree 100% with what the words on the shirt says–“Authors are my rock stars”. A bunch of talented authors of poems, stories, novels, articles, etc inspires many of us in so many ways through their magnificent words. Well, obviously, this had led me to get into my blogging mood.

I am into one of those moods again where I just I want to sit, munch on something, and watch a movie. I watched John Carpenter‘s ‘The Ward‘ yesterday afternoon. It’s a suspense-horror movie with a twist towards the end.

These days I find it very convenient to browse free movies through the internet–you can either download it or watch it online. I watched ‘The Ward’ through movie2k.com. By the way, movie2k.com has a wide library of movies and the best thing about this site is that it’s free.

Anyway, it’s somehow weird that if I am going to list down all the movies I watched then and now, I guess I could say that I am so indulged with stomach churning and unearthly kind of thing type of movies. Having said this, I think I already have gotten used to eerie and ghastly stuff as far as my choice of movies is concerned.

What sort of movies do I watch? Well, I do like sweet, romantic, ‘love story’ movies. Besides, love makes the world go round and love stories are the kind of movie themes that you and I can relate to. Don’t miss out the ‘drama’ too. Stories of heartaches and failures are part of anyone’s life. A bit of tears won’t hurt us while watching movies like this–I had a share of moments where tears of mine were helplessly dripping down my cheeks. You could say that I got heavily engrossed into the dramatic scenes. ‘Action-packed’ and adventure movies are great genre as well–guns, grenades, fist-fighting, and police chases are always part of every action movies and the typical hero-villain thing in movies. And of course, the kind of movies which I am engrossed to watching are those that send chills into the spine…wahahaha (witch’s laugh)

Not for the faint hearted! If you can’t stand being scared or if you’re the type who’d faint at the sight of blood, then I recommend you not to watch the type of movies I included in my slideshow below that shows the movies I’ve seen in the past 12 months. I am in no way encouraging you to sit and watch these movies, just suggesting. But, if you have similar interests like mine in movies with this kind of genre, then go ahead and watch it.

Eerie and Ghastly Warning! not suitable for you if you have weak stomach–gory films can churn your stomach inside out. Anyway, I am still going to share these movies, if you want to watch. I also included the not-so good ones which I’ve watched but I am not going to name it. By the way, I’ll just include the most recent movies I watched for the past 12 months because I already couldn’t recall all of it.
