thank you helaine for introducing me to sarpino's pizza. my family is officially hooked! heh.
i'm usually against remakes. like when a new artist try to have their spin of a classic. they normally desecrate it. like 99% of the time. that's how sure i am. example: sabrina. the one with harrison ford was atrocious. sorry sam. i thought they destroyed the original. like totally. it had no spark. what else. oh ya, remember westlife did an album of old songs by frank sinatra. i thought that was blasphemy! who the hell do they think they are? i hate remakes. i'm all for the original! unless it's zombie movies. they always get better.
but lately, there have been several cases of ooh-i-think-i-might-like-this moments. for starters, i was impressed with boys likes girls version of let go. i normally won't care if someone redid a song cause i will always think that it won't match the original version. like ever. especially if i love the song/movie/tv show etc. but i went, WHOA!
then it was hairspray. translating a musical to a movie is not often easy. especially my
favourite broadway musical. i've waited a year for the movie and boy was i blown away. they did justice to the musical. there's only two things that gets on my nerves. (1) the fact that every freaking person now knows about hairspray annoys me endless. like i can never forgive zac efron for making it such a hit with senseless teeny boppers. ugh! he's still cute though. hah. (2) they didn't include my favourite song in the movie. it was played during the credits. wtf?!
right now, i can't wait for across the universe. the movie looks yummy. especially since it's entirely based on songs by the beatles. LOVE! on a side note, someone spelt the beatles, 'the beetles' one time. i thought that was funny and sad at the same time. anyways, i used to dig evan rachel wood until she started morphing herself into dita von teese and began to date marilyn manson. seriously. if you separate all three individuals, i would be alot happier. oh ya, i've got jim sturgess version of 'all my loving' on constant replay.
finally! my bro uploaded the heroes photos. i apologize for the delay.
thanks cindy for the vip pass! *hearts*
someone had a poster that said, 'where's peter?' haha..
i thought this picture was super cool. it accentuates greg grunberg's personality. he's fab!
the lucky four who got up and close. dammit.
masi oka had an adorable expression in this but it's kinda blury. dang! honest to god. the dude is like a walking toy. he's soo CUTE!!!
one for all you mohinder fans. i know there's a couple of you out there. can i say is and sham? muahaha..
here's us after the whole event. it was a blast!
there's was a girl in front of us who went beserk when she saw our copy of the comic. and she went fangirly when i said i like greg grunberg's character. reminds me of me IF i was ever high on steroids or something.
oh ya, i want to thank cindy again. i literally screamed on the phone when she asked if i want to go. haha.. i love the fact that we had a goodie bag that was filled with fun stuff. can't wait to wear my heroes t-shirt and scribble my heroes notebook. *dies* THANK YOU CINDY!
p/s i've got more photos if any of you want to take a look.
