Harry Potter and stuff

I'll try to catch up with everyone's journals, emails and Private Messages eventually. Been so much to do lately, I've barely had time to sleep the few hours I've spent at home. But looks like this weekend will be a bit more relaxed. Finally had time to hang out with mrs_fujiwara  again this Friday afternoon.

We went to see the new Harry Potter movie.



It's a bit annoying that it's the first half of two parts, so all the action etc. will be in the next one. But I enjoyed it nevertheless, although a few things seemed a little strange... Did anyone else here see it yet? Was there a reason for why Harry and the other two couldn't just disapparate again when they ran into the gang of death eaters(?) in the forest? And Harry seemed to recover from his struggle in the icy cold water extremely quickly.... 
I'm looking forward to see the end of it (Although I do know what happens). I hadn't really looked much into this first part of it before seeing it (We hadn't planned to go the the theater either; just happened to pass by it and thought "hey, we should see the new HP movie), so I was possitively surprised at the appearance of Bill Nighy. There are so many great British actors. I wish they'd included Rita Skeeter more in the movies (like in the books), as I like Miranda Richardson a lot (She was the one I automatically imagined as Rita when I was reading the books). But I'm very happy about the casting of Helena Bonham-Carter and Ralph Fiennes too :)

They got a nice christmas tree in the lobby now:


And just like last time we went to this movie theater, we ran into Seiji & co. on the street nearby ^^; I think we managed to go by unnoticed this time. It's incredible how you can keep meeting people so randomly in this huge city.


Also ended up taking some purikura of course.

The new Narnia movie is coming soon.

Read all the books as a child (and saw that old BBC series on TV over and over x) Aslan's movability has certainly improved a bit since then). Also remember seeing a theater performance of the Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe maaany years back. The play took place inside an old monastary/prison from the Middle Ages, on a small island (for some reason). And it was absolutely freezing inside. We were all wrapped in thick blankets, wearing winter coats and stuff, trying to watch the show. 
It feels so nostalgic having the story retold now.

Since we ran into the man right before taking the pics, we did a really fangirly one... (Don't take it too seriously)
A small and chubby elephant seemed fitting (Sorry Seiji).



Caaake. Almost as good as chocolate.
 




Today is the day of another Art Cube live! ^^ Looks like it'll be a pretty huge Sequence Records event. I'm sure the reappearance of SULFURIC ACID will bring a lot of people there, and it'll be the last proper Sequence event before the label ends. A lot of friends are coming, so I'm really looking forward to it!

I got the set of books from my father too! :) I think they did a nice job with the first movie, so you should try that.

Got about six hours of sleep tonight, which is more than twice what I've gotten mosts nights lately. So that's a start ^^; Only one month left till the Winter vacation <3

How come you're so busy? Are exams coming up or just some stuff that needed to be done? :/ Please try to rest more on that weekend then!

I didn't have time to see it yet (and won't for at least another week :/), but everyone I know who had watched it told how awesome it was... But going to the theater suddenly like that sounds fun! :)

That tree looks nice! I love the blue lights! :)
Lol at running into Seiji. Maybe he lives somewhere near? Or just likes to hang out there... But wait, the last time that happened, he recognized you? (Okay, I know that's not really hard. XD) Did he at least wave at you or something?

Hmm the place where you were seeing the play at sounds a bit weird. But also kinda nice (minus the coldness).

The purikura are awesome and fun as usual! Haha. :D I especially like the cake one and wouldn't have even noticed the elephant (lol it's so cute) on fangirly one! Btw do the two of you live (relatively?) near each other or something? I somehow got that feeling...

I hope you'll have fun at the event! Going with a lot of friends is always nice! :D

But why the last one? They're shutting it down? :/

Just loads of stuff that needs to be finished before various deadlines.

I'm glad they decided to release the other movie this coming summer, and not wait a full year. Looking forward to see the last battle on screen.

Seiji usually goes O___O *turns head after you* x) I hope he's not afraid we're gonna jump at him or something. Especially when he's out with family like last night, we'd rather just hide out of sight until they're gone to avoid making it awkward for them. He doesn't live there though; he actually lives kinda close to me (So we run into them here sometimes too, or on the train). And yeah, me and Angelica are neighbours too ^^; So that might explain why we seem to hang out together so often.

I don't know why they did the play out on that tiny island, but it certainly gave it a distinct sort of atmosphere.

We haven't gotten any explanation on why Sequence Records are ending. Tomozo (head of the company) just briefly mentioned it. All we know is that December is their last month of avtivities, and that Art Cube will be transferred to a label called DUAL CORE SOUND ENTERPRISE as of January 1st. I'm hoping we'll get some more information at the live today, and hopefully it won't have any negative effect on Art Cube's future.

Oh, Seiji... Does he ever fail to bring laughter? But he could've figured out already that you are pretty much harmless fans, haha. Hiding sounds like something I'd do as well. XD
It's nice to have such a great friend living close. At least you don't have to travel anywhere to hang out and have fun! Having friends near is awesome in many ways! :)

I definitely see what you mean! But I guess it's sometimes good to see something a bit different from usual...

Oh, lol, the fangirl picture is my favorite. We're really very silly. <3

Wish you a lovely week!

I'm sure the meeting was fate x) We should make some puri like that for B. as well though.

Hope I'll see you on Tuesday :D

I was thinking exactly that. We should take some and put together with the you-know-what.:-P

I'll probably be late, but will be there for sure!

Do they really need more silliness from us? XD

And I have absolutely no idea when they'll be playing on Tuesday 7_7 M. is way too hard to understand with his discreteness 7_7
