As I said before, I would be leaving LiveJournal in the New Year. Today is the New Year. But, I'm gonna give you all 5 days here to comment, starting today. But on the 5th January, I will officially leave this place.
Don't cry for me. I don't think of this as the end for me, but rather another chapter of my life; a second adventure.
As I already explained, it just became pointless here when there wasn't much LJ friends commenting on my posts. I felt that fewer LJ friends were using LiveJournal as the years went by, because of tumblr. And I felt I was just wasting my time. I just wanna move on and have a fresh start - concentrate more on my writing; both stories and fan letters.

While back, after I declared by departure of LiveJournal, I found this poem online by Alfred Lord Tennyson called Ulysses. Here is the shorter version;
"It may be that the gulfs will wash us down;
It may be we shall touch the Happy Isles,
And though we are not now that strength which in old days
Moved earth and heaven, that which we are, we are
Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will;
To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield."


I’ve been thinking about that poem a lot lately. And I think what it says is that, while it’s tempting to play it safe, the more we’re willing to risk, the more alive we are. In the end, what we regret most are the chances we never took. And I hope that explains, at least a little, this journey on which I am about to embark. I have loved every minute with all of you, my LJ family. For 3 years you've all commented on my posts with so much positive feedback. For that, I am grateful.

There is also a phrase from an iconic character, one I think you all know; Spock. From his words, and added with a little touch of my own, his phrase is;
"You have been, and always will, my [LJ]friend(s).
Live long, and prosper."

Now, I'm not going to show you the YouTube clip of him saying that because; A)It's much too said. B)I don't want you to assume that I'm dying or something, just leaving and the_muppet will mention me here time to time. C)I was going to show only one YouTube video, and it should be better.

I would like to say goodbye to you, my LJ friends:
deans_babe, surfer_buoy, el1ie, starrylizard, yenny2206, k_nightfox, chaosmaka, anmkosk, prfctdaze, asifidletyou, kari_hermione, hogwartsvixxxen, alby_mangroves, mrs_leary & antarctic_sue

I bid you all adieu.
And if any of you go through a monster phase, or want to know about monsters, simply type in the search engine for tags like Monsters, Encyclopedia and/or Hunter. Or if you know someone in the film industry in need of some inspiration to make a movie, then type in the search engine for tags like Films, Movies, Actors and/or Actresses, see if that helps. Or if you just want to read good story, and liked my stories, then just type in Stories on the search engine and you'll see stories from my Halloween stories to a Guy Richie fanfic to even my story that I never had published but posted(one chaoter each) here instead; Battle for Li Chien instead.

I really did enjoyed posting awesome entries, and even more so hearing your opinions on them. I will miss you all very much, and I wish each of you a great year to come.

Goodbye, and Godspeed.

And ladies and gentlemen, Billy Boyd performing The Last Goodbye;

Happy-New-Year-2015-HD-image

Happy New Year everyone! I had a great night. I actually had a more than one New Year's snog - four times to be precise, and they were all from older women! One was a little drunk and there was another who was incredibly busty!
But other than that, I danced, I drank, I made my ancestors proud. I had the most fantastic evening.

It is a sad farewell to 2014, but at the same time a warm welcome to 2015. I'll never forget events that has happened to me last near. I'll always remember the good times, and the bad times. Those I met, and those I lost. From joy to heartbreaks and disappointments. But everything that has happened to me last year, everything that had happened, is all behind me. I now focus on the coming events for this year!

I feel 2015 is going to be great. But if I want that to happen, I gotta turn over a new leaf. I see it now! I want that feeling, and I know it's going to happen. It CAN happen! And it can happen to you too!
I've made a few New Year's resolutions, but one of them is be more confident, take risks, try to do much good deeds as I can. You all should do the same.

Happy New Year to all, and to all a great year!

It is New Year's Eve, and tonight I am going out to a New Year's Eve party. I am very excited, and at the same time nervous.
This is the last day of 2014, and at midnight is the beginning of 2015. End of this year and a start of a new year. It is just amazing!
What has been the highlight that has happened to you this year? Just you I mean. I have some good highlights;
1) My trip to Comic-Con
2) My night out on Valentine's Day
3) Seeing Lee Mack live
4) My day out on St. Patricks Day
5) Shaving my head for charity

Those were good times. I can't wait for whatever happens in the New Year. The New Year is a time to start again, take risks, make New Year's resolutions. I wanna make a fresh start for myself in the New Year; job searching writing stories, finding a girlfriend.
But tonight, I am gonna party like it's 1999 - a lot of people use that phrase, don't know why. But that is exactly what I'm gonna do. I am going to enjoy myself, and will make the most of the last day December - and the year itself.

I hope you all have a great time tonight, I know I will. Have a great evening, and party on!

Here's some wicked tunes to celebrate New Year's Eve!

Today I went to the cinema and saw Annie, a remake to the musical classic starring Jamie Foxx and Cameron Diaz.
The plot, obviously, sees a young foster kid named Annie taken in by a billionaire. But she soons warms up to him and everyone else as these two discover that family doesn't have to be blood.
The film was heart-warming, hilarious, and had remastered songs. I thought Foxx and Diaz were brilliant in their respective roles. A fitting end of the year as the last film of this year that I have seen. I liked it! I give it 4/5.

To celebrate the end of 2014, I found this music video from a DJ, whom I've never heard until I saw this video, a video that's mashed together every song we've ever heard in the year.
It's actually quite catchy, it sounds like all the artists in this video are performing together.

Warning, this song is an hour long. It's probably the longer version. Unless the one I saw on a music channel was edited into a short version.But either way, the video here is quite excellent, and a real montage for all the songs of 2014. Have a listen and enjoy.

Notes
: I got this idea from after watching New Year's Eve(film). I thought that would be cool to have a big budget ensemble film with so many stars. I don't know what plots would be; a couple of storylines, and anyone who would consider this diea doesn't have to have all these stars. Just a thought. But any of you, my LJ friends were to consider different plots for these stars, let me know what your idea is.

This is an incredibly true story in the history of WW1.

In Christmas morning, 1914, both the British and the Germans had a ceasefire and left the trenches and greeted eachother instead of fighting eachother. Both sides layed down their arms and celebrating Christmas together, even playing Football.

This was only for one day sadly. And as Christmas ended, both sides went back to their trenches and continued fighting. The war continued, and that was the liast time that day would ever happen again.

I have heard this tale many times. I quite liked that part of WW1 because that day both sides completely forgotten about their war with eachother, and put aside their differences and became friends for the sake of Christmas, even if it was a short time. Even though it was only one day, just one day, there was peace.

Genre: Family, Fantasy, Romcom.

Certification: PG or 12a/PG-13

Cast: ???

Plot: A female Elf leaves the North Pole to bring joy to a miserable town. Along the way, she is taken in by a single father and his two kids(nine-year-old son and teenage daughter) where she immediately lightens up their home and bringing their family closer. But what the elf didn't plan on was falling for the father, and evenutally the pair fall in love.

Note: I hadn't thought of the casting idea, but I would think this would be a made-for-TV film. I also thought it would be quite a hearwarming family film too. Although there might've been a similiar film already made, I'm not sure. But just to clarify, my version of elf isn't the usual knee-high version but rather the regular sized(our size) version.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Snowman

The Snowman was adapted as a 26-minute animated film by Dianne Jackson for the fledgling British public-service Channel 4. It was first telecast on 26 December 1982 and was an immediate success. It was nominated for the 1982 Academy Award for Animated Short Film.

The film story is told through pictures, action and music, scored by Howard Blake. It is wordless like the book, except for the song "Walking in the Air". In addition to the orchestral score, performed in the film by the Sinfonia of London, Blake composed the music and lyrics of the song, performed by a St Paul's Cathedral choirboy Peter Auty.

The film ranks 71 on the 100 Greatest British Television Programmes, a year 2000 list drawn up by the British Film Institute, based on a vote by industry professionals. It was voted number 4 in UKTV Gold's Greatest TV Christmas Moments. It came 3rd in Channel 4's poll of 100 Greatest Christmas Moments in 2004.

When I first saw this, I was amazed. This was indeed a wonderful short film, but it was quite sad at the end; when the boy came outside in the morning only to find the Snowman had melted. I kinda cried a little at that. But the rest was beautifully done.

Enjoy this short movie, as much as I did when I was young.
