    Rawr often likes hot chocolate, miscellaneous musing, melodies, zombie massacres,
    things that meow, getting lost in forests,
    paint, books and staring at the sky amongst all else :-)
    Uhm what else...

    Bye bye everybody, I treasure the time I spent here and wonderful humans I got to know :-)
  1. My mother bore me in the southern wild, And I am black, but O, my soul is white! White as an angel is the English child, But I am black, as if bereaved of light. My mother taught me underneath a tree, And, sitting down before the heat of day, She took me on her lap and kissed me, And, pointing to the East, began to say: 'Look at the rising sun: there God does live, And gives His light, and gives His heat away, And flowers and trees and beasts and men receive Comfort in morning, joy in the noonday. 'And we are put on earth a little space, That we may learn to bear the beams of love; And these black bodies and this sunburnt face Are but a cloud, and like a shady grove. 'For when our souls have learn'd the heat to bear, The cloud will vanish, we shall hear His voice, Saying, "Come out from the grove, my love and care, And round my golden tent like lambs rejoice."' Thus did my mother say, and kissed me, And thus I say to little English boy. When I from black and he from white cloud free, And round the tent of God like lambs we joy, I'll shade him from the heat till he can bear To lean in joy upon our Father's knee; And then I'll stand and stroke his silver hair, And be like him, and he will then love me. The Little Black Boy - William Blake :-)
  2. What are you listening to? (part 3)

    Dead Skin Mask - Slayer
  3. Most over-rated film ever?

    The Omen never did anything for me, same with Silence of the Lambs.
  4. What are you listening to? (part 3)

    Welcome To The Machine - Pink Floyd
  5. The Last Film You Saw ~ Part 2

    Twilight is a bizarre abomination, there's literally no point to it and it makes no sense, it's like kim kardashian. 'My Arizona clothes were too permeable' still makes me laugh. Meyer sure took a dump on the vampire genre, at least she got paid for it.
  6. The Last Film You Saw ~ Part 2

    Amityville Horror (original) always good for a laugh, such a cult classic and can generate an eerie atmosphere in the right mood.
  7. What are you listening to? (part 3)

  8. Naturally The Dark Knight Rises. It's a colossal shame that Ledger bit the dust before he reached his potential (which is frightening in itself with respect to his Joker work) because I believe he could have cemented that characters legend, not in the same franchise way of a Jack Sparrow but perhaps another glimpse of the twisted nomad's intriguing and swinging psyche and glittering menace... a real villain for the frequently shallow Hollywood blockbusters. Bane seems like a bit of a stock choice, there were so many opportunities and rumours from Jim Carrey to Johnny Depp but we'll see, it's sure to be interesting if nothing else.
