Planet Terror is insane, but I love it. It's like if George Romero and John Carpenter were in a room with a mountain of cocaine and wrote a movie. Bloody, disgusting, and a hell of a lot of fun.

Death Proof is a cool slasher film with an interesting idea (a stuntman who stalks and kills girls with his car) and an unusual story structure, but it works. Like I said before, I'm a huge Tarantino fan, but I found most of the dialogue here to be self-indulgent and stilted. Maybe he's playing more to the genre than anything, I don't know, but it's a love-it-or-hate-it sort of film. I did absolutely love Kurt Russell and the cute Aussie chick in this though.

I think I'll watch Thank You For Smoking.

I've heard good things about it.

I love how, despite my 8am start yesterday and good intentions to fix my sleeping schedule, I automatically went back to sleeping in past midday. Ah well.

Next semester's 10am starts on two days are going to be BRUTAL.

I have to get up at 7am at the earliest every day I have to go in next semester, and 6am on Friday.

At least I'll have Wednesday and Thursday off.

Ugh, I just gave my next semester schedule another lookover today, and I realized that I screwed it all up because my school is STUPID and won't let me sign up for 18 credit hours until the semester starts, so I waitlisted a class, and only just now realized that it's at the same time as a class I'm already in, so when I went to change the time of the class I'm already in, I discovered that it was full as well

OUCH.

Tuesdays and Thursdays look like being 10am classes, which will mean I'll have to get up by 8:45 at the latest - preferably 8. But I will hopefully have Monday off and my streak of never having university on Friday looks like continuing, so I'm glad about that.

I really liked the tone of it. It makes you think about consumerism while still being funny and entertaining.

Awesome, I hope you enjoy it.

Thank You for Smoking is great, too, Ian.

Looking at it again, 10-3 on Mondays (two lectures three hours apart).

May be skipping those.

10-4 on Tuesday, two tutorials and a lecture.

9-11 on Friday.

I don't think I'll be complaining about that.

I actually do my best work in the mornings, which is why I prefer morning exams.

I hate dicking around for a long period of the day only to have to suddenly focus on something in the afternoon.
