So I watched 8uppers, which is a movie starring all of Kanjani8 and is about a bunch of hit men that get landed with a baby and have to take care of it. It is lovely and heartwarming and HILARIOUS, obviously. This is Kanjani8 we're talking about, here, their group name could have been funny. I suggest everyone go watch it, if you can find it. You will smile.
Also, I finally watched Hangeng's movie from last year. I miss his face, I have to admit. He was good in this, especially near the end. I was a bit skeptical, as there had been a few strange reviews, but I did enjoy it and it was certainly easy on the eyes. It was a gorgeous film, as expected of China. You should also watch this, if you haven't.
And next I want to watch The Crucible, which is that movie about the school for the deaf in Korea that was mistreating and abusing their kids. But I need to be in a better mood for that. I think I'll save it for when I have my wisdom teeth out...
ACTA in a Nutshell –
What is ACTA? ACTA is the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement. A new intellectual property enforcement treaty being negotiated by the United States, the European Community, Switzerland, and Japan, with Australia, the Republic of Korea, New Zealand, Mexico, Jordan, Morocco, Singapore, the United Arab Emirates, and Canada recently announcing that they will join in as well.
Why should you care about ACTA? Initial reports indicate that the treaty will have a very broad scope and will involve new tools targeting “Internet distribution and information technology.”
What is the goal of ACTA? Reportedly the goal is to create new legal standards of intellectual property enforcement, as well as increased international cooperation, an example of which would be an increase in information sharing between signatory countries’ law enforcement agencies.

FUN FACT, HAHA, of the unposted count, 59,823 of that is ONE GODDAMN FIC ;_____; And it is not finished yet.
So. Yeah. Less than what I had last year, but I focused a lot of my huuuuge story rewriting and plotting and stuff so. Fair trade. This year I will finish it and move onto other things.
I also want to try exploring my foray into original fic again. I MUST DO IT. Sometime. After I finish The Monster. Hahahdf :(
Onew, Nessun Dorma. I REALLY WANTED HIM TO SINGS THIS AND HE DID. I died.
Ring Ding Dong <3 They freaking killed this. SHINee was legit flawless all night long.
Maximum - Changmin. Flipped my shit waiting for them. They were beyond amazing.
Changmin/Minho/Kyu line. ONE OF THE BEST THINGS TO HAPPEN ALL NIGHT
More soon, once I upload them...
And I just needed to rant, because I really want to go. I mean, I'm sure I can go by myself, but I know that it's not going to go over well, and I'd rather go with somebody...
But you know what I'm doing instead?
I AM WATCHING CITY HUNTER. ACTUALLY I'M DONE WATCHING CITY HUNTER AND TWIDDLING MY THUMBS WISHING IT WERE THIS TIME NEXT WEEK SO I COULD FIND OUT WHAT HAPPENS.
THE SUSPENSE IS ALREADY KILLING ME.
I really love this drama. Like. It's not to cheesy but it's not too serious and everything is just working together so nicely. If anyone dies in the end I'm going to be so pissed.
But seriously, if you haven't started watching it already, you should. It is amazing. :)
