OMFGOMFGOMFGOMFGOMFGOMFG!!!!111!elevety-one!!11! Rainn Wilson is going to be at UW on Friday! I am literally bouncing up and down! This is amazing! Here's more info on Facebook. I am probably going to have to go alone, but who cares?! This is amazing! My student ID is a couple of years old, and from the Bothell campus, but maybe they won't look at it too closely, LOL!

Tom is dog-sitting for one his daughters again. I love that little dog. He is so cute! Makes me want a dog again. But then I remember how much work it is. I am like a little kid. :P

To make this entry a little more interesting, I have a movie review!

The Devil's Backbone is by Guillermo del Toro, who did Pan's Labyrinth. It's been described as the masculine brother to Pan's, and I'd say that's pretty accurate. If you want a ghost story that has a lot of substance, I insist you watch this. Richly metaphorical, this film explores many parts of the human experience. Taking place during the Spanish Civil War, you see how war has to make children grow up too quickly, and how tragic the outcome of that can sometimes be. Every facet of this film is hauntingly beautiful; Javier Navarette is quickly becoming one of my favorite composers. If you're a crier, definitely have a tissue on hand, there are parts that just break your heart.

LOL! Yeah, my mom and dad saw the last half of Pan (because it NEEDED to be watched on their nice HDTV), and were like that too. XD

Haha. Well, I mean it isn't supposed to be all glam and glitz, you know. But, I am going to watch it. Really. And then after I watch PL, I'll watch this one. Or should I watch this one first?

They're both really good. I guess it depends on what you're in the mood for. They're both drama. But DB has more of a horror/thriller element, and PL more of a dark fantasy feel.

Devil's Backbone >>>> Pan's Labyrinth for some reason. I mean, i love Pan's but I randomly ordered it in 2002 and it was amazing. I watch it pretty regularly. Gah, finally someone else who watched it randomly or not so randomly??

I don't think I can really say I can pick which one I like better. I guess I think of them like kids, and you can't pick a favorite between kids. :P

Well, I bought it randomly. I've heard it talked about it before, and then I was in line at Borders awhile ago and it was right there for $10... All signs were telling me to buy it. And I know/knew it was more than just a ghost story, but I thought it'd be nice to watch it the first time before Halloween.
