Being a supernatural monster is a bitch: New Moon review

“All things move toward their end
I knew before I met her that I would lose her
I swear I made every effort to be good to her
I made every effort not to abuse her
Do you love me? Do you love me? Like I love you?”

Do You Love Me?, Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds
 
 

John Connor’s diary. Date: December 21st. The future has changed. Mankind is no longer being wiped out by the Terminators, but by a series of films about non-blood-drinking vampires and waxed werewolves. You still can fix this. Tell Stephenie Meyer “Do I like Twilight? NOT AT ALL!”.


 
 
Recently I watched New Moon. And I actually liked it, it fits perfectly into the horror movies parody genre that has since so long— WHAT? It isNOT a parody? I don’t get it.

“Tell us a tale, you’re the… er… guy who tells tales and all that stuff”

“I just want you to be happy
That’s my only little wish”

Just The Right Bullets, Tom Waits

“You ain’t got no money?
He’ll get you some
You ain’t got no car?
He’ll get you one
You ain’t have no self-respect,
you feel like an insect
Well don’t you worry buddy,
‘cause here he comes”

Red Right Hand, Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds

Hi, it’s me, Javi! Since I started writing this blog –excuse me, Mr. Paws, since you and I started writing this blog, I’ve received tons of e-mails, from “What is this stupid piece of shit? It looks like it has been written by a chimpanzee! Oh, it has? Then it’s terrific!” to “This is the most marvelous piece of literature I’ve ever read! You should apply for the Nobel Prize!”. Well, I once was, but I didn’t win it. It’s all politics, you know.
I’ve also received a mail offering me discounts for buying Viagra, but it had little or nothing to do with the blog (I hope).

Anyway, everybody told me that the songs weren’t playing. It is true. I was using a server which does not work if you aren’t logged in from MY computer or whatsoever. Anyway, from now on CLICK on every blue word you see. It will take you to a new world of color, imagination, music and apes! C’mon, click on the songs at the beginning of the post if you haven’t done it yet!
Oh, and the web from which I extracted the lyrics from the Tom Waits’ songs has been closed. That’s a shame, because the lyrics had annotations explaining each reference and everything. But, on the good side, Tom Waits’ official website has been remade, and now it has audio and video player, quotes, and LYRICS TO EVERY SONG, so, thumbs up!

And now, let me tell you the story of how I came to use WordPress instead of Blogspot, the most common choice when it comes to blog writing. It is a story which I named:

Train Long Suffering

“The name of the train is

‘Train Long Suffering'”

Train Long Suffering, Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds

Fine, now that you’re listening (or you should be listening) to Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds’ Train Long Suffering, we can begin.

If you’re studying at the UJI, you probably are from Castellón or live there during the school term. Lucky you. I (as well as some of you) am not. I live in Valencia and I have to get up early to go to the UJI. Very early.05:00-early. And, man, getting up at 05:00 is a bitch. Catching the bus is no pleasuring task either, but, hey, it’s better than walking to the station.

But, the train. Oh, the train. The first days I thought “well, it’s not that bad… I’ll listen to music, read, plan how to conquer Europe… It will be nice”. That was the first week. From the second week on, I started hating the “cercanías Renfe, destino Castellón. Vía 1, sector 1. Salida inmediata”.

All the horrors which have befallen me, well, Renfe is to blame

All the horrors which have befallen me, well, Renfe is to blame

 

Well, some of you may say “don’t complain, you silly sod! You can sleep in the train!”. Well, I tried, but I can’t sleep with all the noise and the siren and everything. Now, I can tell you that some people can. Yes, they can. They even drool while they’re sleeping and mumble things like “hrrrn I’mlatemybossisgonnafireme…”.

But the worst part is that trains have ruined many songs for me! I can’t listen to many songs without hearing the word “train”!

It’s training men, hallelujah, it’s training men

I wanna knooooow, have you eveeeer seeeen the traaaaain?

– For I am a traaaaaain dog, too!

That’s all for today.

P.S.: The songs quoted are:

It’s Raining Men, by The Weather Girls

Have You Ever Seen the Rain?, by Creedence Clearwater Revival

Rain Dogs, by Tom Waits
