This is a journal of memories and stuff I think is cool. :)
I Just Ordered A Bunch Of Stuff
I'm really excited about finally getting to order Teen Wolf(both seasons) which didn't cost as much as I thought they would. I remember when I'd go to the store and complete seasons were nearly $40. And since I never finished watching Phantom of the Opera a year ago I decided to buy that too along with Moulin Rouge!. I kept hearing about that last one over the summer and I downloaded one of the songs and it seemed pretty good and both of these movies were surprisingly cheap. So I bought them.lol Ah and since I really needed a new cellphone case I bought two more. I found my old one(one of the first I ever bought)but it was like $6 and I originally paid like $2. So f-that but I wish I could have gotten it.

#1. Teen Wolf: Season One (2011)
I had originally heard about this show on facebook(back when I was really into facebook) and seen a preview for the first episode. I thought it seemed pretty cool but it only played on mtv. It seems like the kinda show that should play on CW but whatever ya know? So I pretty much lost interest in it once I realized I couldn't watch it(it also seemed a little cheesy). Then recently I got interested in tumblr and my interest in that show was piked when I kept hearing about it. So I bought both seasons since both were available(the 3rd wouldn't be out till December :/ ). Update from watching the show: It may seem a little cheesy at times but its a very good show.
Description:
Though the young adult series Teen Wolf shares its title with the slapstick 1985 werewolf comedy, the show adopts a more agreeable blend of angst-driven high school drama and supernatural chills. In doing so, it invites comparison to the Twilight franchise--lead actor Tyler Posey auditioned for the role of Jacob in the series--but its focus is more modest and grounded in real-world issues than the grander fantasy scope of its vampire kin. Posey is well cast as a young student learning to adapt to his newfound lycanthropy, which, like all maturation processes, requires some getting used to: he possesses incredible speed and strength but also a hair-trigger tendency to transform at the worst possible times. There's also a new girl (Crystal Reed) who catches his eye, a questionable ally in the form of Tyler Hoechlin's fellow teen lycanthrope, and another, more dangerous werewolf on the loose with a posse of hunters on its trail. Teen Wolf keeps all of its disparate elements in play throughout the first season's 12-episode run, and if it can be faulted for occasionally pandering to the eye-candy crowd--Posey and the rest of the male cast spend an awful lot of time shirtless, so much so that an entire supplemental feature is devoted to these moments--it can also be credited for maintaining a level of believability and honesty, especially in regard to its characters. The three-disc set presents a sizable amount of extras, including an extended version of the season finale and a number of deleted, alternate, and extended scenes. Series creator Jeff Davis and director-executive producer Russell Mulcahy (Highlander) are front and center in a making-of featurette that details the show's development, as well as commentary on select episodes, which also offer an alternate, lighter-toned track by members of the cast. The actors are also highlighted in several making-of extras, which discuss their off-camera friendships as well as the perils of kissing scenes. Footage from the red carpet premiere and an amusing gag reel round out the set. --Paul Gaita

#2. Teen Wolf: Season Two (2013)
Good thing that I decided to buy both seasons at the same time because I don't think I would have been able to wait to watch the 2nd. ^^;
That might be why I don't like watching tv anymore because you have to wait a week to see the next episode. Update from watching the show: I really loved this season. I also was looking forward to it because I wanted to see the new pack(Issac, Boyd, and Erica). I also had made a s**t ton of(my thoughts on teen wolf) posts on tumblr because I wanted to record my reactions for my friends that watch that show. Now I just gotta wait for s3...

Description:
After an action-packed end to its premiere season, Teen Wolf jumps full force into season two with even more suspenseful drama. Scott McCall, an ordinary teenager with a wild secret, continues to find himself caught in a supernatural war between hunters and werewolves. While navigating the complicated roadways of high school, Scott must keep his forbidden romance with Allison a secret and protect himself from new Alpha wolf Derek. Scott will have to trust his instincts above all else if he hopes to end the war in Beacon Hills and keep his friends and family safe.

#3. The Phantom of the Opera (Widescreen Edition) (2005)
I never finished watching it and thanks to tumblr my love of musicals was also rekindled. Update from watching it: It made me want to cry. So I don't like it. But it really is a good movie.
Description:
Musical Drama based on Andrew Lloyd Webber's celebrated musical phenomenon. The Phantom of the Opera tells the story of a disfigured musical genius (Gerard Butler) who haunts the catacombs beneath the Paris Opera, waging a reign of terror over its occupants. When he falls fatally in love with the lovely Christine (Emmy Rossum), the Phantom devotes himself to creating a new star for the Opera, exerting a strange sense of control over the young soprano as he nurtures her extraordinary talents.

#4. Moulin Rouge! (Widescreen Edition) (2001)
This is another movie I had always wanted to see. Recently I wanted to expand my collection of musicals so I bought this to go with my others. I also really liked this one song from the movie(Come What May). I had originally heard that song from one of my fave deviantart artists(pocketpicasso) and I loved it ever since. Update from watching it: I loved the movie. There were a few moments that made me wonder wth I was even watching(the quirkiness was a little over the top but also awesome)but I prevailed. I loved nearly all of the movie. But seriously is there a musical out there that won't make you cry?
Description:
A spectacle beyond anything you've ever witnessed. An experience beyond everything you've ever imagined. Behind the red velvet curtain, the ultimate seduction of your senses is about to begin. Welcome to the Moulin Rouge! Nicole Kidman and Ewan McGregor sing, dance and scale the heights of passionate abandon in the year's most talked-about movie from visionary director Baz Luhrmann (William Shakespeare's Romeo + Juliet, Strictly Ballroom). Enter a tantalizing world that celebrates truth, beauty, freedom and above all things, love.

#5. Cellphone Cases/Covers(whatever you call them)
I really needed to buy a new one(the old one was all scratched up and the paint was missing)because you could pretty much see just the clear silvery underneath part of the case. So I bought these two. I really liked the red one because it was rubbery/stretchy(which makes it easy to put on the phone). And I wanted the green one because of the design(i haven't used it yet though).
