Eclipse: Anyone?

 i wanna share my friend adam's review about the movie everyone's goin crazy about....

One hazard of having nothing to do is you can easily get persuaded into doing things, even those you don't like to do, lest you die of boredom. Like watching a 'Twilight' movie, for instance. I had no expectations going in, so I really can't say I was disappointed. But damn, that was two hours of my life I can never get back again! There were just a few questions that bothered me about the movie; hence, this post. As a non-fan, I'm not really looking for answers, so just treat these questions as rhetorical. Also, as a non-fan, I apologize to anyone who might get offended by my opinions about the movie. I just want you to know that the movie sucked. Big time. No offense, really.

1. Why is the movie called 'Eclipse' again? Did I miss a scene where there was an eclipse? 'Cause I'm pretty sure I didn't fall asleep even for a second (God knows I wanted to), although I did yawn for at least five times.

2. For crying out loud wolf-boy, wear a shirt! Not only was there a storm the entire night, it was also snowing the morning after, so WEAR. A. FREAKIN'. SHIRT. And why are all the wolf-boys always topless, yet that wolf-girl isn't? Methinks werewolves have a double standard.

3. So vampires can go out at daylight, even go to school with humans? And graduate! Good thing Edward didn't give the speech; that would have been campy. They also seem to have reflections... Hmmm... Interesting, interesting... I'd note it, if I weren't trying to erase the movie in my memory... I miss Buffy. She would have kicked ass in the movie.

4. Oh Bella, I don't get you either. You're one twisted lady, for someone who claims to be a virgin. You just got engaged and already you're kissing someone else? But yeah, you have an excuse, of course: you love Edward more! Sure, that works. Garampingat much? Just like my friend said: "Ang landi-landi ni Bella. Nagmumukha akong malinis." Hee.

5. Actually I don't get the entire plot. Seriously, that was it? Normally, when I don't get a movie's plot, I try to figure it out myself. Not this time, though. Don't really have time to care.

6. What's up with Dakota Fanning's character? Lakas mag-powertrip. Kawawa naman si Charice Pempengco. Wahehe.

7. I like that Alice chick. Not really a question. I just feel like I've already offended quite a few Twilight fans (Twihards?), so I'm just saying something I like about the movie. Hmm... what else?... Yup, just Alice.

I think the lesson here is this: When you really have nothing do, it is best to just do nothing. So 'Breaking Dawn', Adam? Eeeeh, pass. :D

Famous and Gay

Happy Pride to everyone:
History of Pride from Wikipedia:

Advocates of gay pride have used history to point to oppression as well as differing levels of acceptance of homosexuality throughout history. The ancient Greeks did not conceive of sexual orientation as a social identifier, as Western societies have done for the past century. Greek society did not distinguish sexual desire or behavior by the gender of the participants, but by the extent to which such desire or behavior conformed to social norms. These norms were based on gender, age and social status. "Lesbian" derives from the name of the island of Lesbos, which was famous for the poet Sappho, who wrote love poetry to female lovers.[Homosexuality in the ancient Roman Empire is considered to have been widespread but was tempered by the complex social systems of the society.
During Medieval times all forms of sexuality began to be repressed by the church as the message of heaven and hell gained popularity. As technology fell behind, simple luxuries such as clean running water and proper sewage became a thing of the past. This caused horrible conditions and disease. People began to believe that they were suffering from the wrath of God, blaming immorality. Any and all forms of homosexuality became not only shameful but punishable by death.In 390, the first law banning same-sex love was enacted in Rome, making it punishable by death.

Here is a list of Famous Gay Men in History

Alexander the Great  (September 20, 365 BC - June 13, 323 BC)
King of Macedonia and conqueror of the world, he overthrew the Persian Empire and extended his rule from Greece to Egypt and all the way to India. Alexander's achievement laid the foundation for the Hellenistic world, the Roman Empire, and even the spread of Christianity: all the New Testament writings were in Greek as a result of Alexander's influence.  Alexander was said to be extremely handsome. Many portraits of him were made in his life and these Roman copies may be pretty accurate. He was an incredibly athletic and loved strenuous exercise -- he would jump off and back on a chariot moving at full speed. His lover Hephaestion was taller and even more handsome.  The Persian Queen bowed to him instead of Alexander when she was presented to them.  Alexander said to the mortified queen "Never mind, Hephaestion is also Alexander".

Enrique Martín Morales (born December 24, 1971) better known by his stage name Ricky Martin, is a Puerto Rican pop singer and actor who achieved prominence, first as a member of the Latin boy bandMenudo, then as a solo artist after 1991.
On March 29, 2010, Martin publicly acknowledged his homosexuality in a post on his official web site by stating, "I am proud to say that I am a fortunate homosexual man. I am very blessed to be who I am."Martin said that "these years in silence and reflection made me stronger and reminded me that acceptance has to come from within, and that this kind of truth gives me the power to conquer emotions I didn't even know existed. In 2010, prior to Ricky Martin coming out, Barbara Walters expressed some regret for pushing Martin—in a 2000 interview—to admit if he was gay. The Toronto Star quoted her as saying, "When I think back on it now, I feel it was an inappropriate question."
