Вопрос дня: Страшное кино

What is the scariest horror flick you’ve seen?
трашный... японский оригинал фильма "Ring".
Я сдавала экзамены в универе и жила у одного приятеля, который предоставил мне свою комнату на пару недель.
У него была довольно интересная коллекция ДВД и в том числе и этот фильм.


У меня до сих пор волосы приподнимаются при воспоминании об этом фильме. Американская версия тоже очень страшная, но ей не сравниться по искусному наращивания ужаса с японской.


Самый страшный фильм...

Writer's Block: A stroll down memory lane

Would you rather lose all of your old memories, or never be able to make new ones?


For me, I would most likely rather lose all of my old memories. I don't remember much of my childhood anyway. And I'm only 18 so I have a whole lot of years to make new memories with. Memories are wonderful and help you to remember the good, the bad, and the inbetween in life. With losing old memories you'd be able to try and make all of the new memories as great as they possibly can be.

в детстве очень боялась "Человек-невидимка", казалось он в изголовье стоит, гад, с топором.:-)))Потом "Дракула" по роману Б.Стокера напугал. Позже "Челюсти" Но вообще-то страшнее, это когда на психику давят
как в народе пишут:
"Как отличить плохой фильм ужасов от хорошего?
Просто!!! В плохом фильме ужасов пугают изо всех сил битым стеклом, обгоревшими людьми, резкими звуками, и ВНЕЗАПНО прыгающими зомби.
А в хорошем — в кадр тихо мирно вползает ежик, и уже от этого можно обоср@ться!!!))))"

Насчет этого я уже как-то давно писал. Самый страшный фильм ужасов, это, если не ошибаюсь, белорусского режиссера. "Прикосновение" называется. А в детстве отдельные пугающие моменты усматривал в "Сказке странствий".

Martyrs. Them french people are fucking crazy. I went in expecting a good scary flick like High Tension, and the first part of the movie was just that. Then it turned so motherfucking scary that by the end I was cowering behind my hands, staring at the screen for 5 min. That movie hunts my dreams, made me question pretty much everything, and after I swore I would never see it again I went and bought the DVD, and every once in a while I hear it whispering "Watch me, you know you want to. I´m not as bad as you remember, go on..."

Writer's Block: Scary movie

What is the scariest horror flick you’ve seen?

Is there such a thing as a scary movie? Scary to me means something that lingers in the mind afterwards and fills you with trepidation, or at least makes you think twice, even if half in jest, about going round the next corner into the dark unknown.


Traditional scary movies, usually classed as horror films, are not scary. The supernatural doesn't exist so stories about ghosts, demons, angels, devils, witches, etc can't by definition be scary as you know that they don't exist. I'm not saying they can't make you jump in the cinema. A good mixture of sound and a sudden image on screen can give you a fright, but it's the same sort of fright you get when someone taps you on the shoulder when you are totally engrossed in a good book. It's not scary once your heart beat returns to normal.


What is scary is the evil that men do, and I mean "men" in the wider definition of the human race. And the scariest of all are the things they do because they think they are doing the right thing/in the name of their god/for the good of humanity/to keep the master race pure/because those people over there are different so they must be inferior because they don't act/speak/dress/speak the same way we do.


To misquote Douglas Adams.  Isn’t it enough to see that men commit horrible acts without having to believe that demons made them do them?


So if I have to pick a "traditional" scary movie ... I can't.  But if you want a truly terrifying film that looks at the sorts of decisions and actions that can be made by people acting cooly, "logically" and for the "greater good", watch the 2001 film Conspiracy. If you don't want to resign from the human race long before it ends, well you don't have to, because you weren't human to start with.

What is the nicest thing anyone has ever said to you?
That I have a beautiful mind.  That the quality of my thinking and the path of my thoughts reflects pain, but that pain has helped me to become an admirable person, and that my mind is beautiful. 

He was also the man that made me want to teach - his passion for his subject, his incredible depths of knowledge, and, bizarrely, his remarkably sexy handwriting. I'll never forget that.

Writer's Block: You’re giving me a toothache

I am going to answer with someone who is not Cody or an ex of mine, because it is apparent that they would say nice and beautiful things in earnest. Also, I am not going to scour the recesses of my mind to pull something from the past that a faint echo of a memory. Instead, I will recount an event that happened this weekend.


I was walking around at the IWL show and I had a bunch of people telling me how great I looked. I was told by enough people that I began to blush. People asking me how I lost so much weight, how I did my makeup (btw my makeup was amazing), and so on. Well, I had my clothes in my hand as I went to change I passed thru the bar where a woman began to motion for me to come over. I walked her way and as I got there she said, "I just have to tell you that you look absolutly stunning. It's everything about you. The way you carry yourself, your clothes, your figure, your hair....I mean everything! Your makeup is gorgeous. I really envy you! You look amazing." 


This woman was literally gushing over me. I believe I turned pink and began to look down saying thank you a few times. Then I looked up into her eyes and said "Thank you, I really appreciate it," before I bowed (yes, bowed) and walked off.


I don't think it was necessarily what she said, but how she said it. I know this because I hear fake ass compliments all the time - have you met some of my not so upstanding friends? This woman was so genuine and true that it was her sincerity that touched me the most making it, by far, one of thee nicest things anyone has ever said to me.

"The Ring"


Japanese version, uncensored. 


The girl, the corpses in the closet, just the whole color scheme, the video itself. 


I saw this movie when I was about 13 or 14, I don't even know how this one special friend of mine got her hands on an uncensored copy (It had crappy German subtitles, I remember that much) and although I watched most of it while covering my face with my hands and two pillows it still scared the hell out of me and tortured me for the next four years to come. 
After this video night from hell, I was afraid of practically everything involving dark, even closing my eyes during washing my hair (which is stupid I know xD) and I know how incredibly happy I was once my dad got rid of the old vhs-player and bought a dvd-player.


It was one of the movies that taught me in a very hard way to stay the fuck away from horror flicks (except werewolf-movies that is xD) and leave the room if friends want to watch stuff like that during video nights. 
I  needed four years or more to stop being afraid of what might lurk behind the next dark corner and be a bit more carefree (this was not entirely the movie's fault but personal problems too, the movie was like the symptome). 
Being with the musical group helped me as well as starting re-watching cartoons and gaining a more positive view on life in general. 
Still, this is the one thing that I would change in my life if I could travel back in time, it would save me a lot of nightmares.
If I have kids, I will definitely keep an eye on them because although I know that pain and confusion is a part of growing up, I would never have my own child life through something this traumatizing.



Sorry for the rant. xDD

What is the scariest horror flick you’ve seen?


I love the horror genre, and I've only ever been scared by two movies. The first was Carrie, which I saw when I was eleven. After that was Eraserhead. I was not so much scared as disturbed by Eraserhead. I sat through 90 minutes of grainy and disturbing imagery waiting for something to happen which would pull it all together and make some kind of sense. Then the credits were rolling, and I had nothing to do with that imagery. I've since concluded that understanding and love are inseparably tied in the same way ignorance and fear are tied. Without understanding, all I had was fear. While I don't really get that movie to this day, it has helped me to mold a great deal of my understanding of the world and about compassion. Hmmmm.

Writer's Block: Scary movie

What is the scariest horror flick you’ve seen?


In all honesty I can't answer this question.

Horror movies are my favorite kind of movies and I've been watching them since I was about 10 or something. I've pretty much become desensitized to them. Its very hard for a film to make me jump because I usually can tell when Its coming and its really hard for them to freak me out because I've seen that many.

So yeah, Horror films really don't scare me...Yet I still love them and watch them...Maybe I'm hoping that one day I will find one that will scare me.

I will tell you though, there is one type of film that always scares the shit out of me and that's films about aliens. Not all alien films, But ones like The Fourth Kind.

You see in my head. Zombies, Demons, Monsters don't exist so its hard for them to scare me. (I didn't list Ghosts because I think they do lol). And horror films about axe murderers and psychopaths don't because you become desensitized about them through the news and media.

The thing that scares me about Aliens is the fact they could exist. We have no proof. Sure some people think that people are crazy when they say they have been abducted, Hell some might be. But could they? I watched a program the other day where a man, his brother and a friend claimed to be abducted and all went though hypnosis and claimed the exact same thing. They even all had a polygraph test asking them about the event that supposedly happened and they all came back as telling the truth. So yeah...Try explaining that.

I'm getting off the point here.

Basically what I'm trying to say is that Aliens could in fact exist. And we have no idea what they have on the agenda for us. There technology could be far more advanced than ours. They really could be out to just kill us all.

OR....and this is the version I would like to think would happen...They would just like to meet us, Find out what we eat, Drink, What music we listen to, Basically find out about our culture and us find out about there's and just co-exist.

This has really gotten off topic now.

So yeah in short.

Horror movies = Not scary to me

Alien movies = Very fucking scary

Writer's Block: A stroll down memory lane

neither...


I am the one I am due to each day, hour, minute I've lived through...Even though the events are in the past, they are still bright and real in my memory, sad and happy equally valuable and cared for. To lose them would be a tradegy like becoming  invalid...incorrect, baseless, false...



Cogito ergo sum... and what is thinking without holding the point in your memory at least for a while? Not being able to learn something new, to experience love, friendship, joy (because all these feelings are impossible without a working memory) implies becoming more of an object rather than a subject...brrrr, that's death...

Though I did watch plenty of films last year & have borrowed a few to watch this year, I still havent seen very many horror movies. But I will say that watching a documentary about hate groups in America last year gave me an intense need to indulge in some Mister Rogers' Neighborhood--and I didn't even like Mr. Rogers' show that much when I was a kid!

Writer's Block: A stroll down memory lane

Would you rather lose all of your old memories, or never be able to make new ones?


If I lose my old memories, will I also lose the knowledge that I ever had old memories? Learning new things while forgetting the old might be bearable... if I could forget that I ever was the person who had those old memories. But then you come to the ancient philosophical question: If I lose all my memories, am I still the same person?* And is it possible for me to know with any reasonable amount of certainty whether the person who comes after me, who has no memories of who I am now, would be the sort of person who could be happy learning new things while remembering none of the old?**





* My answer: Yes and No. So helpful.

** Probably not. I suspect a lot would depend on their/my first few new memories, the new formative experiences. While some basic biological personality might play a role, I suspect a big part of my basic biological personality is always going to be highly sensitive to experience.

Obviously, I'd choose to become someone who would be able to find effective treatments for all my health problems within the week, assuming that the unlucky soul who was using my body in that time period was willing to cooperate. Well, of course they'd be willing to cooperate--I'd choose to be the sort of person who could convince anyone using my body that it's in their best interest to cooperate with me!

Anyone who feels that my answer is unrealistic should re-read the question and tell me how realistic any answer would be.

What is the nicest thing anyone has ever said to you?
At the eight grade award cemermony I recieved the "Global Citizenship Award" from my seventh grade social studies teacher. The things that he said made me feel really warm and fuzzy inside. I'm not sure if I really deserved the kind words from him or the nomination from my other teachers(I was thinking someone like DTH would deserve it more or someone a little more outgoing). Anyway, I get complimented on acedemics a lot, (not to brag, it's just a fact, another praise I don't really deserve) but it was rare to get recognised on anything that had to do with a whole slew of other things. (I'm very much a stick in the mud.)  

Writer's Block: A stroll down memory lane

  This is a more complex question than it seems.  To lose your old memories seems to give you a chance not just to reinvent, but to be reborn, free of all memories and learning that hold you down.  On the other hand, there's always some problem or some asshole from back there that bites you, and without those memories how could you deal with that?  Ig you couldn't form new ones you would be stuck in an absolute present with no idea how you got there, more literally stuck in the past than anyone ever in fact is, trying forever to deal with the instantaneous world in terms of one that no longer exists.  Both are nightmare scenarios, and asking for a preference is like asking if you'd rather be burned alive or boiled in oil.

Вопрос дня: Страшное кино

 Нет ничего страшнее и ужаснее ситуаций в собственных СНОВИДЕНИЯХ.(There is nothing worse and worse situations in his own dreams.) В тот момент, когда теряешь конроль над сновидением и из темных углов сознания в этот момент  вырываются неуправляемые сущности и эмоции ужаса. Ужаса, который  сравним , наверное только с близким ожиданием собственнойсмерти. Я седой и отчасти от этих состояний.
Фильмы ужасов, это пустой звук новогодней хлопушки по сравнению с этими состояниями измененного сознания.
Это не действие наркотиков   и каких либо веществ- это тренинг.



Sorry, machine translation :
There is nothing worse and worse situations in his own dreams.
At that moment, when you lose the dream and konrol over from the dark corners of consciousness at this point essentially unmanaged and torn emotions of horror. Terror, which is comparable, perhaps just waiting for someone to death. I am white and part of those states.

Horror movies, this is an empty word Christmas firecrackers compared to these states of altered consciousness.

This is not the action of narcotics and any matter is training.

It was a compliment from a stranger. I was working my first job after high school, before college and a job I absolutely hated with a passion. I was a cashier at a local chain like Wal-Mart, but smaller scale. Can't emphasis how much I hated it.

One day this elderly lady (we were situated right in the middle of 3 or 4 retirement communities, so old people were the most common of customers) came through my line on her walker. She was lost and asked me where the exit was. I showed her where the exit was just beyond the cash registers. She then looked at me and stopped. She then said, "You have really pretty blue eyes. You are very pretty."

Honestly, no one had ever told me that outside my family, so I was a little shocked. And that was the nicest compliment I ever got.

The nicest thing that anyone's ever said to me...? Well, I usually brush off people's compliments, because most of the time it feels false to me, but.... One of the ones that did get through came from my at-the-time crush, after I couldn't quite keep myself from laughing at something one of our mutual friends said:


"I noticed that you don't smile or laugh much. You really should, because they're some of the most beautiful things I've ever seen and heard."


Followed up by, when I didn't quite believe him:


"Hey, I'm being serious here. Your smile, your laugh, they're amazing. You're amazing, and anyone who says otherwise is a dickwad who doesn't know what they're talking about."


Which sent me into another round of laughter (not at what he said, but the way he said it). He made my day a little brighter, that morning.

But the one that gave me nightmares as a kid was an SF classic, Fantastic Voyage. I dreamt that I was trapped inside the ship still inside the patient's brain and couldn't get out while the white-blood cells attacked it.

My friend Shawna and I went to Barrie one day to go shopping and such, we went to Harvey's after and the lady that was decorating our hamburgers said that I was gorgeous and that I should be a model.

It meant a lot because I was fourteen at the time with really low self-esteem, plus from a complete stranger. I'll never forget that :)
