Вопрос дня: Заглянуть в будущее

Where do you see yourself in five years or where don’t you see yourself? Why?

Туда, где я, весьма вероятно, буду через пять лет, редко кому удаётся заглянуть. Да и те, кому это всё же удаётся, мало что успевают разглядеть. Не вижу себя балдеющим на шикарном курорте или на яхте ,как у Абрамовича, потому что воровать стыдно, а по другому не получается.

Where do you see yourself in five years or where don’t you see yourself? Why?

I see myself as having become more independent, I hope.  More self-reliant.  Within the next five years, I plan to 1) graduate from college, 2) move into my own place and get a job that I can support myself with, and 3) travel some more.  I would like to have worked with the peacecorps, or some similar organization, by that time.  More than that, the specifics are still up in the air.  Mostly, I want to be happy and more confident.  I want to stop depending on others, and see more of this beautiful world we live in.  I want to be alive.

У меня есть будуещее,свет и все еще есть душа.

"Хочу видеть себя успешным и самореализованным во всех сферах человеческой жизнедеятельности" - так подумал бы практически любой человек, задай ему подобный вопрос. А, порой, бывает, что человек не знает, что хочет...скорее не хочет ничего хотеть....Так, плывёт по течению апатии и отсутствия амбиций. Не сказать, что жалко таких людей, вовсё не в жалости дело, а в критичности их положения. Мне сложно представить, как человек может не строить планы, не стремится к намеченым целям, ведь он для себя старается, а не для тёти с улицы. Хотелось бы пожелать людям выше упомянутой категории почувствовать настоящий драйв жизни, чтоб они не гнобили себя леньтяйничеством а баловали теми малыми, но приятными минутами восторга и радости от достижения своих целей...

"прощальные встречи"

началась странная для меня череда "прощальных встреч".
я встречаюсь с теми людьми, кто всегда для меня был на расстоянии "вытянутой руки". кому я могла позвонить и рассказать про самое сокровенное или попоросить помощи в сложной ситуации. а теперь они будут далеко. за тысячи километров...

Настенька была первой. она человек моих последний 6 лет жизни. моя свидетельница на свадьбе. и та клому можно было ничего не говрить - она всё и так знала.
она подарила мне книжку А.Шопенгаура Афоризмы житейской мудрости. будем изучать!

What is your favorite foreign film? Do you think there should be an American remake?


Foreign film, hmmm..... "Babette's Feast" was quite good - does NOT need to be re-made. The Swedish "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo" was very good - and, unfortunately, IS being re-made as an American film. The 1955 French film "Diabolique" is a favorite (re-made with Kathy Bates 10-15 years ago, I think). The Louis Malle film "Au Revior Les Enfants" was good. It's a shame American film makers can't make them as good / interesting as this....

Но а конечно не хотелось бы быть там, где стоят измерительные весы, маленький лоток, и касса, стоять на рынке и предлогать товар. Это во мне говорят, конечно принцыпы, но все же ...

Where do you see yourself in five years or where don’t you see yourself? Why?


I'm actually finding this one surprisingly hard to answer.

I've always had some sort of plans for the future, always had a goal, always known what I wanted, but, well, during the last half yeah, these things have changed. These days I don't really know what I want - or rather, I have an idea about what I want, but dunno how to get their, nor do I know if I actually can get there.

job/education
In a couple of weeks I'll be leaving for Norway to finish my BA over there. Hopefully, while Iøll away, I'll be able to find a job which is relevant for my education. I really hope to get to work with religious and/or ethnic minorities. But, well, maybe I won't be able to do so, which will mean that I might end up as a service assistant again.

I should be done with uni between now and then. In an half year I should be starting on my master, which I should be done with after two years. So in 2½ year, if I do it on time, I should be done with my education. Right now I think I'll take some classes on law during that period.

If I've gotten a job which is relevant for my education, then I hope I'll be able to continue working at that place. Right now my "big" dream/hope is to work with either religious minorities or Danish romanis and their rights within the Danish community - a mix, I guess, between law, research, and activism.

But, as said, I have no idea if this is doable. I don't think my choices of education have hindered me in any way so far, but it seems like most people within this have a background in law, not in the humanities. But that would be my big dream: To use my energy and passion for human rights on not just an intellectual level and not just as theory, but actually do something about it, especially when it comes to either religious groups - yeah, I know, me being supportive of the rights of religious minorities? THAT CANNOT BE! :O - and/or romanis.

family</b>
I've never really planned what I want when it comes to family. I know what I don't want - children. Well, I don't want children of my own. I dunno if I would mind being a step mum or some shit like that - as long as they are not my responsibility, then I'm find with it.
But what I want? Nah, not really. Family has never been a priority, really.
But I do hope that I in the next five years meet someone, falls in love, is loved, and - apparently the hard one for me - manage to make it work. And if that's not what's going to happen? Oh well, I'll probably survive.
If my job situation allows it, I'll hopefully have an animal. If not a dog, then a snake.

I expect to have lost some of my grandparents, if not all of them. Especially my maternal grandparents are getting old, while my paternal grandmother is still going strong.
My little bro most likely have minimum one child by then, or he'll soon have one. So I might be an aunt.
I hope my parents have found someone else in their lives. I doubt it with my dad, but maybe my mum will no longer be, well, alone.
Hopefully the dog, Elvis, will still be alive, though he'll be old by then :'(
I'll probably no longer have much contact with my cousins, uncles, and aunts.

friends
I'm getting better and better at being able to take contact to my friends, and I expect this to continue. Hopefully I'll have several friends both in DK and outside, and I hope I'll be able to see people as often as time and money allows it.

other
TRAVEL TRAVEL TRAVEL. I cannot imagine that my love for travelling will change in the next five years, so most likely I'll still travel a lot. I'm already thinking about the next couple of travels I'll be on - travelling through France looking at churched, diving in either Malta or further south (Maybe Egypt?), etc.

I'm probably a fashion-holic.

Hopefully I'll have done more of this diving thing, which I love.

Hopefully I'll have gotten into reading and drawing more again. I miss being creative :'(

As I'm planning on buying an apartment in the next half yeah, which I'll have to live in in minimum five years for it to be a sensible and financial good decision, in around five years I'll probably start looking after somewhere new to live. Unless I really dig where I live, which is possible to.


in short:
Hopefully I'll be working somehow with either romanis or religious minorities, most likely religious minorities, and hopefully my work will have a positive affect on their lives. If I can't do that, then I have no fucking clue on what else I can work with, though I'm sure I'll find out something.
Maybe I'll be in a relationship, maybe I won't, but I'll definitely not be a mother. Most likely I'll have lost some family members, either through lack of contact or death, but there's also a chance I'll have gotten new family members. I hope I'll have minimum one animal.
I'll hopefully get better at keeping contact with friends, both those close to me and those far away from me ♥
I'll probably travel a lot, both to big cities/capitals, historical sites, and places which are good for diving. I really hope I've done more with my love for diving.
I expect to be financial stable, and maybe I'll be looking for a new place to live - but I definitely do have a place to live at.

OR MAYBE I'LL MARRY RICH, HE OR SHE'LL DIE SOON, AND I'LL BECOME ONE OF THOSE RICH BITCHES, WHO DON'T HAVE TO WORK AND CAN JUST TRAVEL ALL AROUND THE WORLD, SUPPORT FINANCIALLY DIFFERENT ACTIVIST INITIATIVES, AND SPOIL THEIR NEPHEW AND/OR NIECE ROTTEN WITH TOYS FROM ALL AROUND THE WORLD, FUCK YEAH. Well, okay maybe not, BUT A GIRL CAN DREAM, OKAY?!


Uh, yeah. That was long. But obvious it's something I think about. I don't worry about the future, but I am a planner. I'm not one of those who one is going to wake up and then realise they have nothing/fucked up everything.

Вижу себя сидящим на террасе собственного дома.  Я сижу в кресле- качалке,на столе передо мной стоит кувшин с молодым вином, на тарелках - нарезанный козий сыр и тугие гроздья черного винограда, над которыми вьются мелкие непротивные мошки. За деревьями (инжир и гранат) видно близкое море,скорее всего, Средиземное. Вот сейчас выпью еще стаканчик и пойду в дом - смотреть по спутниковой тарелке  очередное идитское ток-шоу с далекой Родины. Острое наслаждение, почти сексуальное, хотя и с налетом извращенности.

Вопрос дня: Лучшие качества

What is something you would never want to change about yourself?

Я всегда готова к совершенствованию, постоянно менять себя, расти и развиваться в любой сфере. И человеку всегда есть что менять, он очень далек от совершенства. У совершенства нет предела :-).
   И это предназначение любого человека. Человек должен всегда прогрессировать во всем, если он останавливается, то происходит регрессия, т.е разрушение . Это касается как души, так и духа и тела. Но секрет в том, что эта троица взаимосвязана, и если регрессия начинается в чем -то одном , страдают и две другие составляющие тоже. 
Получается, что не поменяла бы я стремление к совершенству, т.е стремление к Богу.

What is the weirdest thing you’ve ever eaten? Was it any good?


One of my favorite foods is calamari so your idea of weird and mine might end up varying a bit. :P

Let's see. I've had venison spaghetti which was more weird due to the combination than the meat itself. I wasn't into it because I don't really like gamey tasting meat that much. Or red meat in general now. Does that COUNT as red meat? Anyone know?

The bacon and apple doughnut comes to mind and it was fucking delicious like you would not believe. You wouldn't think that would taste amazing, but it really does. I can't wait until Fall, when they come back.

Uh, I eat a lot of veggie burgers and red meat substitutes and some of those are stranger than others. I didn't really like the version Red Robin uses for their veggie burger. Something about it just tasted kind of desperately wrong and icky. I think this is because the mushroom and swiss burger sauce was not made for such things as this. I DID really like that I could sub my bun out for one made out of lettuce. I can't wait to try that with a chicken sandwich there.

Hmm. The apple and cheddar cheese omelettes I regularly get in the U.P sound demented and crazy but in actuality are the best breakfast ever. So, nothing too excitingly strange or interesting really. At least not until I get around to figuring out how to create spaghettios pie. I mean, I love spaghetti pie and I love spaghettios, so it SHOULD come out fairly decently. I just need to find a small enough noodle to create my "crust" and go from there. Hmm...

Через пять лет вижу себя в Санкт - Петербурге, в каком-нибудь не самом плохом ресторане, договариваюсь о каких-нибудь деталях в будущем проекте, вечером встреча друзей на вечеринке...Прихожу туда не один? а с женой... Через пять лет, меня многое мучает, и все эти мучения и вопросы влияют положительно, на мою карьеру режиссера... Ни минуты свободного времени... Все так казалось бы радужно и красиво, что всем понятно как, да и описывать как то противно.
Правда есть другой вариант, через пять лет, я где то в лесу в камуфяже, с винтовкой на перевес, бегаю и воюю за свободу своей страны, против своего государства... Под которым сейчас живу... Воевать в принципе я могу и в своих фильмах, но это мало кому нужно... Это так ...Я только не знаю пока за что воевать, но знаю против чего. За пять лет хочу найти ответ на этот вопрос...

Где бы я не хотел оказаться через пять лет?  Так это на диване и переключать в тупую каналы, почесывая живот и потягивая пиво из банки... Не хотел бы читать газету в туалете, только ради того что бы ей подтереться... Через пять лет я не хотел бы выделять вместо пота, вазелин и лизать зад начльнику. Не хотел бы работать в салоне сотовой связи и навязывать людям какую то хрень... Я не хотел бы врать, что бы жить... Через пять лет я не хочу оказаться на свалке ядерных отходов, под серым небом... Я не хотел бы оказаться в гробу... И могу перечислять безконечно....

"La Femme Nikita" (which was already remade into "Point of No Return.") Both movies are practically identical so I can't comment on which is better. There's also "Cowboy Bebop: Knocking on Heaven's Door" and "Persepolis." I don't think those are in danger of being remade.

Well that's a good question. I have no idea, really, as I'm bad at this sort of thing. I'd like to see myself having direction? Hopefully. And would be, uh, somewhere I really enjoy? Hopefully with someone I really enjoy, don't want to be by myself. I'd say get better at pumping out art and writing and maybe actually publish something. Or something. :I (see I'm really bad at this)

And, well, hopefully I won't see myself in the gutter. I don't see myself in a Hollywood penthouse or on the moon, either. But, um, hopefully I don't find myself dependent on someone else for living arrangements and stuff. Also not in a flop house. I'm better at seeing what I don't want to do. I dunno if that's a good thing or not.

So far vacation on the lake has been pretty nice. I could totally move down here. With a wave runner.

Tomorrow will involve boating and going to see a midnight showing of Harry Potter at Osage Beach. Hoping I don't fall asleep if I do go... I went on a long hike today and the heat has sorta been taking the wind out of my sails. Some napping may be in order. :x

What is your favorite foreign film? Do you think there should be an American remake?

Favorite?  Well, I have two.

The first is the Spanish fantasy movie, Pan's Labyrinth.  I LOVE that movie!!  The only reason I would want an American remake is for there to be an actual English speaking version of the movie, but I wouldn't want a single thing changed.  If they started changing stuff, it would ruin the movie.

My second favorite is a middle eastern drama called The Bubble.  It's on the instant play on Netflix (if you have Netflix) and it is such a tear jerk-er.  It's about an Israeli guy who falls in love with a Palestinian boy, and the struggles that their friends and family go through to try to help them either be together or pull them apart.  Beautiful movie! (If you don't mind a bunch of gay guys on your screen lol :-) )

What is your favorite foreign film? Do you think there should be an American remake?

"Cyrano de Bergerac" and NO!  There SHOULD NOT BE an American remake.  There is no need to EVER make American remakes of foreign films unless the original has some crucial flaw.  If it ain't broke, don't fix it!  I am so sick and tired of this obsession with Americanizing everything.  The American versions of foreign films, as far as I have seen, are never as good.  Ever.  Just leave the originals alone.  Watch the originals as they were originally intended to be seen instead of being so chauvinist that you have to see something depicted in your own culture before you give it your full attention/consideration....

The English version of the play "Cyrano de Bergerac" was not nearly as good as the original.  It was okay, but the poetic verse (which very much makes Cyrano's character!) was completely destroyed and lost its sincere beauty when it was taken out of the original French.  The French cultural aspect, in fact, was almost completely stripped from the play when it was translated.  It didn't sound right, it didn't feel right, and it wasn't right.  It was not the same to a depressing degree, and when I said to my Directing Class teacher professor that the French version was better, she kind of just laughed at me and did some French impression like, "Haw-haaaw, ze Fraanch," like "Who wants to hear that anyway?"  That's the one time I ever got really frustrated and mad with her (I adored her, but this was going to far).  Who wants to hear that?  Someone who actually cares about the original piece of art!!  Instead of having the childish notion of, "I wanna hear it in my own language so change it"!

If you really think about it, what kind of nonsense is that?!  It's like taking the Mona Lisa and saying, "Well, when I paint I use finger paints, so if I look at the Mona Lisa, I want to look at a finger paint version."  You may be able to come up with a darn good version (...for finger painting).  But it's never going to be as good as the original.  You know why?  Because Da Vinci didn't make the remake, so it isn't the same piece of art!  It's an imitation that's a far cry from the original masterpiece!  Art is art because its beauty is unique.  The second you try to remake it with dumb finger paints, you completely disrespect the beauty of the original piece of art.  You close your eyes to the original piece, turn away, look at your stupid finger paint version of Mona Lisa and miss the whole point of admiring the original piece of art's beauty!

Grrrrrr, this stuff makes me so angry that I didn't even get to explain why "Cyrano de Bergerac" is such a good movie....

I was scanning through my library of movies and the one "foreign" film that jumps out at me is Kung Fu Hustle. I really enjoy it it's superb. I don't think an American remake would work... some of it's charm comes from its setting and the characters who inhabit it. The only way it would work is if Steven Chow where involved but I wouldn't like to see it americanized. Just like I didn't want for that to happen to Akira and thankfully that's been shelved for now.

Fury of the Silver Fox (not appearing in this movie)
and NO for gods sake NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
no American could POSSIBLY capture the joy of this movie. None could grasp the infinite subtly of not being able to run fast or jump high with heavy lead shoes on but being able to do such if they are carried in the hands. NO american could ever truly convey the awesome of using one's sidekick or chicken feet as weapons! and frankly i defy you to find me one Martial Arts Woman in America that would consent to carrying her dead master around in a giant tea cup while pregnant. and when i say Giant Tea Cup i mean it. that man was still in one piece in that thing.

While i admit that the remake of Willy Wonka did show that we can make just as creepy a candy land as China can (though they did have black apples on white trees and giant poison mushrooms in theirs) Nothing here in America can possibly beat the old master who spent 20 Years 20 YEARS 20 YEARS making his poison. and while we have bling i do not believe anything short of Lady Gaga could match the LASER RING in this film



Oh did i fail to mention the negatwins and peanut?

Hmmmm, a lot of my favorites are a lot of Audrey Tautou f, and Jean Reno. Generally a lot of French films. Also a few Japanese flicks. However in my experience, any American adaptation of any foreign film, animation (especially anime) just wreaks. They never capture the original look and feel, the dialogue isn't the same, they always edit the crap out of them, leaving out important plots, sub-plots, twists and events. Quite frankly, a lot if not all foreign films should simply be left alone. We love them for their originality, different cinematic styles, their dialogues and stories. If people want to be lazy and don't want to read subtitles, they simply shouldn't watch it. At least with live action films (animations are ok to a degree but that's a different story).

A Tale of Two Sisters. There is a remake, but it's rather bland, especially in comparison to the original Korean movie. I'm not against remakes (Shall We Dance? might be my favorite remake so far) but I do wish the filmakers would take more care with the source material that they're working with, especially the Japanese horror movies I'm so fond of.

Yojimbo. If I could vote to have the english remake undone, I'd like to go back and have it removed from history anytime, even though a lot of people actually like it. It was "A Fistful of Dollars," changing the setting for a Western but keeping the major plot elements.

Writer's Block: Upon further review

If you could go back and change one event in your life (or un-say one thing you wish you'd never said), what would you choose, and why?

i'd definitely choose the time when I was in love with someone and he said he liked me. I had plenty of chances to say it back but I always ignored it. maybe if i had said it back to him, he would be mine  by now. haha

Its a Korean film with a great cast. Love Oh Ji Ho and Ha Ji Won!!

A quick summary taken from kimchidaily: The lead character Cha Hae-joon (Ha Ji-won) is the marine equipment manager for the rig. Shortly before the Eclipse is to be shut down, new captain Jeong-man (Ahn Seong-gi) suggests conducting one last drilling operation. During the procedure, a new recruit sinks to the bottom of the sea when his equipment fails. Shortly thereafter, crew members begin to turn up dead, one by one, their bodies viciously mutilated.

What is your favorite foreign film? Do you think there should be an American remake?


I hate that foreign films get so little play here. A good foreign film will have the rights to it purchased by a U.S. Studio and re-made.
Sometime look at La Femme Nikita and Point of No Return. There is a big shootout in a restaurant and you can see that they even took most of the angles directly from the French film.

As to the Question: The Seventh Seal.

And no, I don't think an American remake would be a good idea.

What is your favorite foreign film? Do you think there should be an American remake?


I'm not sure if "District 9" counts as a foreign film or not. It doesn't need a remake but I'd love to see a sequel. In the "actual foreign film" category, I like "Life is Beautiful" and "No Man's Land". I don't think an American remake would add anything whatsoever to either of these films, although an adaptation of "No Man's Land" could be possible using a different conflict as its setting.

What is your favorite foreign film? Do you think there should be an American remake?


I still watch a lot of anime series as well as Japanese animated movies, to a point where we joke that our kids will have a Studio Gibli collection rather than a Disney collection.

Some of my favorites
Movies:
Princess Mononoke
Grave of the Fireflies
Nausica
Howl's Moving Castle
Samurai X
Ghost in the Shell
Spirited Away
Akira

Series:
Cowboy Bebop
Samurai Champloo
Paranoia Agent
Gunslinger Girl
Ergo Proxy
Hellsing
Evangelion
Mushi-shi
Wolf's Rain.

Unfortunately, since I cannot speak Japanese, I do rely on subtitled and dubbed versions to watch. I know that a lot of meaning is usually lost in translation and that I am limited to what an American company thinks will sell in the US (this is why I skip on so much because while something like FMA is a big seller, I can't stand it!).

I won't lie though, I was happy to see that the live-action version of Akira got canned.

Writer's Block: Look into my crystal ball

Where do you see yourself in five years or where don’t you see yourself? Why?

Where do I see myself in five years?
I'm having a hard time answering this question.
Realistically or Where I would like to be in 5 years?

   If I were to look into a crystal ball, and see myself in 5 years, I would love to see me with my love, just moving into our own place, probably in Springfield. I want to move away a few years or so after this point, probably to California. Somewhere far where my family can't just "stop by."
As for being married yet? I'm not sure, but I feel like by this time, If i'm with the same person I am now, I would know if I want to be with him for the rest of my life. I'm hoping for the best, He makes me so happy. (That's a whole different story.)  I would be finishing up school and getting my associates in Child Development, considering after 5 years, I might be done with school by now. After that, I would start my career in a pre-school or  a  day care.  NO KIDS YET DEAR GOD PLEASE. (with my bc I have it's pretty much impossible, it's 1 in 1,000 chance,so we'll see if i really do have bad luck)
 Remember, this is where I would like to see me. Is it realistic? Who knows.  Is it possible? Anything is.

What is your favorite foreign film? Do you think there should be an American remake?

What's "foreign"?  I take it I'm supposed to assume that anything outside of America is "foreign" but America itself would quality technically as "foreign" to me.  There are so many non American movies that I love from the history of cinema.  I try to be open minded about remakes because some are enjoyable in their own right or in some rare cases as good or even better (Battlestar Galactica) than the original.  But I'm also wary of movies I love being remade, because sometimes you just can't improve on perfection (how could a remake of Metropolis or Battle Royale possibly be superior to the originals?  Although I do think Melanie Laurent would make a good Maria in the former) and often you get complete waste of time atrocious trash like the remakes of Black Christmas and A Nightmare On Elm Street.

NEVER re-make a film just to bring it to a different audience. It drastically changes the film and too often subverts the original meaning or message.

What is your favorite foreign film? Do you think there should be an American remake?

A little intrigued by this question. But I effectively recast the question into what foreign film would I most like to watch today, and the answer that comes to mind is "Betty Blue". Not only is it sexy, but it's a nice little tragic love story.

And, no, there shouldn't be an American remake, since we cannot do 'sexy' very well in this country. Sadistic torture we can do better than anyone, but not sexy women. That's too evil, I guess, at least in offical culture. Away from the cameras it's another story, at least any official, legal cameras.

What is your favorite foreign film? Do you think there should be an American remake?

Well............ I'm biased, obviously, and right now my favorite foreign film is Ooku. Because, I'm biased and like anything with Arashi especially Nino and anything that is jidaigeki. So, to make an American remake would...... not really make sense, because it's history, and that stuff despite the movie being fiction is still based on true history, so that stuff never happened in America, so it would be very very very odd, but I was just telling Shono the other day, how I wanted a Maou remake in American TV. I think I want to see that...... I dunno why.
