Interesting rack of the day so far: REALIDEA (against Nicky G.)
I just came across the lamest excuse ever for not typing with the Shift key: "i use only all caps or all lower case, because my mind goes way too fast for my two fingers (one on each hand) to deal with the shift button." This was in the Craigslist polyamory forum, heh. (been reading a lot about that lately for some reason!) I'll just listen to the AMBUSH WEDDING on Rock 101 later, as a Valentine's Day tradition. The commercials have been making fun of the fact that it's on Friday the 13th this year instead of the actual day, haha. Plus, this weekend's theme ROCKS: #1 hits with sprays of bullets and a Mafia dude! :D
Now I'm talking to Corey about showers, horror movies, deaths, remakes, haircuts, Nightmare on Elm Street
, Freddy Vs. Jason
, Jane and packages (I haven't got mine yet!), and more. Good times! I also got a cute Valentine's Day card from Janina (mrshannibal) - sweet!
[13:31:27] Flami: the hamsterette: NO!!!!!!!! FRIDAY THE 13th!!!
[13:35:05] Corey: you mean, NOOOO!!! Friday the 13th
[13:35:33] Corey: instead of making a new Jason
movie, they decided to remake it.... same people that fucked up the Texas Chainsaw Massacre
[13:35:49] Corey: which wasn't awful, actually, but just nowhere near the level of the real thing
[13:40:51] Flami: I've been hearing commercials for that in the last week or so... "his name was Jason... and today is his birthday..."
[13:43:22] Corey: well, the real Jason movies are pretty awful, really... the first 5 are pretty good, but then Jason turns into this zombie thing in the next ones, and it gets pretty cheesy... before that he's just a really tough guy that's hard to kill... and they did kill him in part 4
[13:44:49] Corey: Jason wasn't even in 5, just someone pretending to be him, so people think that movie is terrible, but it's one of the best really, and set up the series to go places, but instead they just went with zombie Jason next :P but......... they could still make a good sequel rather than trashing it all and doing a remake
[13:45:28] Corey: the remake is supposed to be a remake of 1-4... so I guess we'll see if they really kill Jason at the end :P Jason wasn't even in part 1...
[13:46:03] Corey: and I don't suppose you have any packages from me yet... Jane got hers on the other side of the world already :P
[13:46:12] Corey: sent at the exact same time as yours
[13:53:16] Flami: zombie Jason? oh my
[13:53:20] Flami: and no, I do not
[13:55:01] Corey: part 1 is about Jason's mother taking revenge on camp counselors for letting Jason drown while they were off drinking and messing around.. then in part 2, Jason himself turns out to somehow be alive and living in the woods, and he takes revenge on camp counselors (not the same ones, just being in the area counts :P) for killing his mom... then they kill Jason for good in part 4
[13:56:13] Corey: part 5 has the kid that killed Jason in a mental help place, where it looks like maybe he's the new Jason killing everyone, but it has a Scooby Doo ending instead and it's just someone else, but still shows that Tommy (crazy kid) could become Jason... part 6, Tommy doesn't do that, but he's running around like an idiot worrying about Jason
[13:58:02] Corey: then instead of letting things be, he digs up Jason and sticks a metal spike through his chest to make him more dead, I guess, and then lightning hits the metal thing and Jason is alive again!!! then he just kind of stays as an undead zombie killer slimy raggedy guy for the rest of the series, until Jason X
when he goes into space and gets really messed up and nanomachines rebuild him :P
[13:58:48] Corey: Jason X
in the future and space kind of screws up sequels, but Freddy Vs. Jason
just ignores that and sticks to the present... since Jason X is in the future, they can just do that for new sequels :P
[13:59:49] Flami: the whole "deaths occurring in a mental help place" thing sounds like what I had to watch last summer
[14:02:55] Corey: that was Nightmare on Elm Street
, I think
[14:03:56] Corey: the Nightmare on Elm Street
movies get pretty cheesy since they're mostly in people's dreams. those movies got pretty cartoonish by the end. the best ones are the first and last, both by Wes Craven, and more serious
[14:10:56] Flami: I'm not sure which one I watched, but man, the DEATHS that I saw on that thing?!
[14:36:07] Corey: horror movies tend to have people dying, yes :P so then you can cheer for the people that make it through everything :P
[14:36:32] Corey: sorry, I took a while to reply because I cut my hair again, and then I had to jump in the shower to get all the little bits of hair off me :P

Your Valentine's Day Personality is Cynical
You really, truly hate Valentine's Day. It's your least favorite day of the year.
You think Valentine's Day is fake, tacky, over the top, and meant to make single people feel bad.
You realize that Valentine's Day is a holiday that only benefits companies... not couples.
You know that real love is not about teddy bears and roses, and you feel like the holiday cheapens emotions.
