Happy :D

I think. Even though I know why I shouldn't be, but somehow I - just am. So maybe I am, after all.
I don't know where you are, and I don't know if I should care more. It's sort of like last Nov holidays all over again, except - this time I should know enough to be satisfied with what I have.

Been surfing around; I think Jared/Jensen is my current OTP, as much as they can be my OTP without me even being in their fandom (but I've decided I should watch Supernatural some day if it's all that angst-ridden and UST-laden :D). It feels like I've known them forever, and they are the cutest pair ever.

This is not - my usual fare at all, but it is a lovely song:
Are You Out There - Dar Williams

She's supposedly folk, but this song sounds slightly jazzy, and the lyrics/rhymes are gorgeous. I wish she'd enunciate a little more, though. I found her from the title of a Jared/Jensen fic, which was Shining Light into Gold or something like that, which was apparently taken from her song, The End of Summer, and that's sweet too, but I could only find a cover on Youtube D:

On other things, Robert Pattinson is apparently gay and in denial. Okay, that's speculation on my part. What is fact though, is that he shot this Spanish period drama on Salvador Dali, and the drama explores, essentially, the secret intimate relationship between Dali and his (male, if I need to spell it out) friend against the backdrop of Spanish revolution. It is gorgeous; go watch the trailer:

The UST and - RST, actually, is there. Sorry for the spoilers, but it's highly unlikely bloody impossible that Singapore's ever going to screen it, primarily because it's produced by some small, probably independent producer (oh, who am I kidding), and it's rated R. Not to mention the whole homoerotic nature of the show -.- There is a fluorescent water make-out scene, just so you know. I think I will just fall over and die now. I love Robert Pattinson (the actors shot the scenes themselves! It was very low budget, apparently.); I forgive him for acting in Twilight. 

Just btw, it's called Little Ashes. I should really take Spanish, if I'm going to be doing my extended essay on Cuba and watching a period drama on Spain.

E.T.A : Apparently it's not a period drama, it's a movie. And it's being released in America mid-2009, according to a very reliable source on the Youtube video comment page.

Also, there are comments like, "Robert Pattinson is not gay in this movie. He just has sex with a male friend he loves very much, who happens to love him back."

E.T.A (again): This is the summary taken from IMBD:

Synopsis (IMDB):
In 1922, Madrid is wavering on the edge of change as traditional values are challenged by the dangerous new influences of Jazz, Freud and the avant-garde. Salvador Dali arrives at the university; 18 years old and determined to become a great artist. His bizarre blend of shyness and rampant exhibitionism attracts the attention of two of the university's social elite - Federico Garcia Lorca and Luis Bunel. Salvador is absorbed into their decadent group and for a time Salvador, Luis and Federico become a formidable trio, the most ultra-modern group in Madrid. However as time passes, Salvador feels and increasingly strong pull towards the charismatic Federico - who is himself oblivious of the attentions he is getting from his beautiful writer friends, Margarita. Finaly, in the face of his friends' preoccupations - and Federico's growing renown as a poet - Luis sets off for Paris in search of his own artistic success. Federico and Salvador spend the holiday in the sea-side town of Cadaques. Both the idyllic surroundings and the warmth of the Dali family sweep Federico off his feet. Salvador and he draw closer, sharing their deepest beliefs, inspirations and secrets, convinced that they have found a kind of friendship undreamt of by others. It is more that a meeting of the minds; it is a fusion of souls. And then one night, in the phosphorescent water, it becomes something else...

Eh, but it does sound artistic and deep and literary. So there.

E.T.A.A. (yeah, once more): http://www.littleashes-themovie.com/synopsis.php
Alone in Madrid, Federico struggles against his psyche, tortured by the damning implications of his own religious beliefs and the undeniable voice of his flesh. He is haunted by news of Salvador, who is collaborating on a Surrealist film with Luis and has embarked on an affair with Gala, a married woman...
A week later, Salvador is hosting a party when he discovers that Federico has been assassinated in the outbreak of war. The walls of self-denial that surround the artist come crashing down as he realizes, too late, the depth of his love for Federico.

And it is also an beautiful, beautiful historical piece. If Singapore has any notion of art whatsoever, they will let it show D: What's the point of spending millions of dollars to improve the movie and film industries and create thousands of jobs if we remain conservative and close-minded to progressive art and literature like this! 
I should stop posting. Maybe I've become an insomniac.
