Four years ago, I had a very bad headache. Four years fast forward, I still have a bad headache. It’s close to election day and the news makes my brain dizzy. I am going to take a break from blogging. I guess I am suffering from writer’s block or it’s just awfully tired. I thought I was doing well by being consistent and I had fun doing it because I have become an expert at making myself laugh. Right now, I just want to focus on Resident Evil 2Remake, do some housecleaning, and eat properly so I don’t completely disappear from this planet. I’ll come back with an analysis of Resident Evil 2 Remake because I am enjoying it so far. Surely as I have a lot to say.
It’s so funny that a few years ago I created a blog to connect with the world and here I am still existing because I need to connect with people. Social distancing is not new to me as I have been doing this for years now. Strangely I feel less lonely even though I am isolated from the rest of the world. I just want to focus on my games and take it easy. I will still be here to read people’s posts.
See you guys when I am done with Resident Evil 2 Remake. It might not make it back on Halloween, but you can always follow me on twitter @poetryhuntress. And if you are here for the first time, hi hello, we can be blogging friends, but bye for now!
I promise I am not ditching my readers for a game. It’s really for health reasons.
Don’t want my blog to die. Might have to do CPR to revive it so I am doing my best to be consistent! Today’s post is more of a rant. I learned that these days people rant more than they review products. The term review might be just too old school and uncool. Because English is not my first language, I just had to double check its meaning with Google dictionary (maybe not the greatest source).
According to Google dictionary a rant is to:
speak or shout at length in a wild, impassioned way.”she was still ranting on about the unfairness of it all”
1: to talk in a noisy, excited, or declamatory manner
2: to scold vehemently
When I first started my blog a few years ago, one of my devout readers didn’t know what my blog is all about because I just posted whatever that came to my mind–mainly about games and poems. She mentioned my blog as a ranting blog so I didn’t know whether it’s a compliment or an insult because the word sounds bad to me. Thinking back, my intention for my blog was created as way to distract myself from talking to myself. So technically, she was right. I was ranting, rambling incoherently about the things I consumed and in the process, I discovered many things about myself that I didn’t know. So ranting is not such a bad word after all!
I hope you enjoy this rant even though it went no where. Isn’t that the purpose of a rant? 😀 Well it’s almost Halloween. My furry stuffed animals and I say hello and bye bye for now.
Generally, I am a nice person and dislike complaining, but I am a little
irritated. WordPress is a nice safe place to unleash your thoughts, but what gets under my skin is when people press the Like button to
promote themselves. Sure thing, I can ignore it but I am only human. Like any normal human being I appreciate it when people genuinely like my content, but don’t appreciate it when people spam likes. To sum it up, no one likes fake followers and WordPress seems to have a lot of that.
It doesn’t even bother me if people actually agree with me or not when they press the Like button. What matters most is getting my voice heard. For this reason, I have never really liked the Likebutton.
Anyone can press it and you never know if they actually took the time to read it. For some people who are serious about their craft, writing takes time. Writing is an art form. Organizing your thoughts takes time. So please think before you press the Like button. Press it when you genuinely like it because some people like me take pride in their craft.
To the girl who told me I have a nice blog. Thank you, I think you told me more than once but you probably forgot it because you spam it to every blogger to get more followers.
Did you think I was done with Halloween? There are more scary stuff to talk about. I am just getting started. I’ll be honest, I don’t know what Amazon is trying to tell me from my browsing habit. They recommended me some suspenseful shows. I hope they are not trying to imply I am CRAE-CRAE.
Here are the top three psychotic films I watched and enjoyed.
People like my parents say that artists are kind of crazy so when I was in my teen years, my parents discouraged me from pursuing the creative field even though I am a natural when it comes to art. It comes as easy as breathing. The problem with creativity is that your mind never shut and you start to make things up and tell elaborated lies to point it seems very real. In this case, what is more scary than a girl who believes she is in a relationship with a man she barely knew. He Loves Me He Loves Me Not is a fun film to watch and a little disturbing.
The undertone of this film is very sexual. You got three different ice cream flavors: vanilla, strawberry and chocolate. I am referring to hair color by the way. Hmm.. Napoleon ice cream sounds rather delicious in fact. When I was a kid I want all flavors. Is that how boys feel about girls? Anyway, this film is pretty intense. A woman’s grudge runs deep so you better not try to make enemies because women never forget, especially the beautiful blonde ones. Better not let her in the house no matter how seductive she is. She will destroy you!!!
Well I wouldn’t call this one psychotic, but I know a lot of people raise their eyebrow when a beautiful woman chooses to remain single and not have children. People may think she is a vampire, a witch, a demon who knows! There is definitely something wrong with her because she should be married by now! The film is quite comforting and humorous. Maybe it’s because I find the protagonist relatable. Life can get pretty lonely sometimes even for a Beautiful Vampire.
There you have it. I hope you enjoy this Pretty Girls are Scary Edition. Hopefully you found something interesting on this list to watch. I try not to reveal too much about the films because it’s more fun to jump into something without knowing and I am a bit of a list maker so I enjoy doing these posts. Until next time, bye bye.
Sometimes I just float where ever the wind takes me. I’m like a pollen just drifting in autumn’s air. Okay that is not scientifically correct where I am from, but it doesn’t matter. In my universe nothing makes sense.
I have been spending a lot of time streaming on Amazon Prime Video. That’s where I watch all my martial art films. I can’t get enough of them. They are that addictive and fun to watch. You spend enough time on the site, you’d eventually find some good horror films and that is what happened to me. In fact, I haven’t had nightmares for a long time until I watched the following films.
There are 10 short stories in this anthology. A few of them spooked me out that I started dreaming that my place is haunted. I woke up to the sound of a single note being played on the piano. I don’t own a piano. I guess the film was so scary I had bad dreams. Maybe you should skip this one. Nonetheless it kept my eyes wide open–just like the cover. It’s that suspenseful.
This one is not as scary as the first film mentioned, but visually appealing to the eyes. I am not going to lie, I like to stare at pretty girls, especially when they are well dressed because it’s like watching a fashioncatalogue for clothes. It gives me inspiration to take care of myself. Dressing up can be fun sometimes. But the only problem with looking nice is that you attract all sorts of creeps, especially if you are walking in the dark. The whole time watching this film, I’m thinking not so bright girl. It might be wise to change into sweatpants and sneakers so you can outrun your predator. You never know!!! Overall, the film is more comically scary than bone chilling if that makes sense. Ideally, I think the film is intended for female audiences. I had a great laugh. I laughed so loud my neighbors probably thought I am crazy.
This film is mysterious enough to keep me on my toes, and the sentimental mother and daughter scenes made me well up with tears (let’s just say my relationship with my mom is strong), but the way how the story is being told is not so good. It felt too Hollywood for my liking. Don’t get me wrong, there are plenty of great Korean horror films, but this one just didn’t make the cut.
I listed 3 films rating from 1 to 3. The first film mentioned is the best on this list.
Okay, I hope you enjoy my small list of reccomendations and hopefully it makes your film selection easier as there are so many films out there to choose from. Until next time, bye bye.
It is beginning to feel like fall thank goodness. Warm weather makes me sleepy. I think it’s safe to say Halloween is approaching and it’s time to be in Halloween festive mood. Horror games and horror movies–and no Scooby-Doo, Where Are You! does not count as being a scary show– not even for a kid.
Today is a lazy post as I ordered a game recently so I will post less sporadically, but will post lighter content as I want to keep this blog rolling. Plus, October is a very busy month. The volume of work is exhausting. I wish I had more time to work on this blog, which is probably why I deleted my old blog in the first place because I was so exhausted mentally. Blogging can be very addicting (congratulations WordPress, you are the 2nd place I go to on the web. The First place is Youtube). Although I must admit, I wouldn’t be blogging if there is a part of me who feels a little lonely from time to time. After all, regardless of how introverted you are, especially during this strange time, humans are meant to connect so thank you to those who take the time to read and visit my blog. It means a lot.
There is a part of me that is not so proud to tell people I like to play scary games because of the look on their faces. After all, I am the gal with the stuffed animals on my desk. They cheer me on while I am working so I don’t stress.
As long I earn money, I have the right to spend my free time however I want. Plus, my co-worker, who is also like a mentor/friend said I should find a community. I’m trying to find like-minded people but it’s harder than I thought. Oddly, I don’t classify myself as a geek, nor do I classify myself as a nerd, nor do I classify myself as a sexy girl gamer (I am far from that), and definitely not a goth. I don’t know what I AM!! Oh, you better not think I am weird because I hate that word. I am not weird. I’m just content. You can achieve nirvana if you learn to find love within yourself. I feel as if I have finally found my voice.
Anyway, without further ado, here are some horrors related- posts I enjoyed writing for this blog that you might enjoy.
Rule of Roseis probably a game that I would classify as art, unfortunately, I don’t have the actual copy of this game. Due to its content, it was banned. My biggest mistake was listening to the store clerk at the time that it never got a release. I should have checked elsewhere because I heard it did get a U.S release.
2) Kuon. This game is ironically soothing and relaxing to play even though it’s a scary game, but it’s scary in a different way. It’s quiet that’s why I like it so much. The storytelling is superb in my opinion. If you like strong female characters, this is the game.
4) NightCry. This game is underrated despite what reviews say how clunky the game is. It’s charming. It’s like going through a maze and playing peekaboo. I love it and it made laugh. Sad thing is–I was playing this game while visiting my mother in the hospital. I guess now you know why I enjoyed playing horror games because that was the mental state, I was in.
Now I don’t really feel the need to play horror games nowadays. I am actually swimming for fresh air. Bright-colored games are appealing to me. Blue sky and children laughing–I like that. The game below is the game I will spend my majority afternoon with–it’s date night with 13 Sentinels Aegis Rim. Okay bye bye for now.
I spy on people and tech companies spy on me on social media. “We are all connected to each other in a circle in a hoop that never ends,” I quote from Pocahontas’s song Colors of the Wind. I think we are becoming very intimate. It is kind of making me blush in fact.
I was working when I watched (more like listening to) this documentary. It was insightful and frightfully scary. The sound effects made the future feel like it’s going to be all doom and gloom run by out-of-control AIs. To save our sanity, we must unplug and delete our social media accounts for our mental health’s sake. Let’s be frank, we are accustomed to comparing each other success. It’s a real thing–even I feel shitty from time to time. I am dull. I like boring stuff. I am like an old lady because I like flowers and prefer to stay indoor despite what my zodiac sign says about me. Traveling is fun but traveling in my mind is more fun. The question “what is wrong with me” pops up occasionally. But it’s just part of human nature. It’s hard to look into ourselves and accept who we are when we can’t see ourselves, we need people to validate us and that’s why social media can be so addictive and detrimental to one’s health. We are a product of our time. I know that I am addicted to my phone. Google Map app is my boyfriend. He gives me directions so I don’t get lost when I go out. When it goes missing, I feel as if one of my internal organs got ripped out from my body and I am about to bleed and die. Yeah, it sounds dramatic because I can be quite dramatic. Overall, the documentary is quite educational and I am glad I watched it; however, I feel that limiting oneself from using any technology related is impossible. It is so ingrained in our society. Technology is good and bad. We become narrow-minded and further away from the “truth” when what we see on a daily basis becomes our reality. This can make us feel quite isolated and lonely. Just understanding this concept makes me feel better and I hope you feel the same. Well, I think I am getting used to this blogging thing. In a way, I am kind of glad I don’t have a lot of followers. My content might shift towards the audience and my own voice will die. I will leave you folks with one of my favorite songs by Depeche Mode because sometimes silence is best
For other tech films related topics, check out my review for EX-Machina.
Oh my lord, my eyes are about to fall off. I’ve been staring at the screen all day (work related) and just finished organizing all of my blog posts so it’s easier to navigate. All the education I ever needed was in elementary! I learned the alphabet so I can put things in order and retrieve data easier. I must say my mental fog has swift away! The secret? The secret lies in organizing things! You don’t need a therapist; you just need a blog! It’s cheaper too, HAHA!
On a serious note, today is the 9/11 Memorial. I wonder if all the days in a calendar are taken. Every day is precious day, so try to be happy.
For years I have never visited the Cinerama. Why? Partly because I substituted video games for movies, which I barely play these days. Oh, how technology has changed. I’m too lazy to visit a theater. Aren’t movie theaters a bit outdated ever since the birth of Netflix? Sometimes, after work or even during my school days, I just want to make a dash home. This introvert needs to recharge mentally. But lately, I am changing my old ways. When I was a teenager, I had bad anxiety so I rarely go out. I was like the girl from Cast Away on the Moon. I was thin (still am) with unbrushed hair castaway in my bedroom. Mother used to complain all the time. I need to eat and brush my hair. I am going to die if I don’t eat and no man will love me if I’m ugly (maybe that’s the point, Mom). Now that I have more freedom from my family (they treat me like a 5-year-old no matter how old I am because I am the baby girl in the family) I went to see The Neverending Story last year by myself because I am badass like that.
What is so neat about Cinerama, it doesn’t showcase new movies; it plays older movies. I think it’s a wonderful idea for those who want to watch old movies on the big screen. There’s nothing more exciting than going to a theater, buying overpriced fountain drinks and popcorn, and enjoying the surround sound system. This is one reason why I love watching horror movies and action movies at the theater. It’s for the experience. If I want to see something slow pace, I prefer to watch it in the comfort of my own place.
Like the protagonist, I enjoyed reading adventure/fantasy books and was often bullied by school brats when I was a kid. So, it’s only natural to find comfort in books where the world felt safer. The Neverending Story is like the real world, in which, life is filled with uncertainties, but we got to keep pushing towards a goal, whatever that may be. On a side note, as I was sitting in the theater, I couldn’t help but laughed that the movie is like MMORPG. That’s why I don’t play online games. I rather finish the game and be done with it because “no book is safe.” We get sucked into a different world and might never come back!
In the movie, the protagonist, a young boy, loss his mother and find it difficult to attend school (Oh, I know that feeling so well. I dreaded going to school, particularly middle school). His father said to him that life goes on when the boy told his father he dreamt of his mother. Of course, life goes on. The young boy learned from the character inside The Neverending Story book, that we too, can have the courage to keep pushing forward and save ourselves through someone else world. But we got to make the effort to move forward even if we are scared! After all, even brave men learned that they can be cowards too in a certain situation, and that’s perfectly normal. Along the way, if we keep moving forward, good luck will find us.
In the current event we are witnessing now (this pandemic), I think we all need that reminder that it’s okay to feel weak, uncertain, and scared. It doesn’t make us any less of a person, but we have to have the determination and confidence to push through no matter what.
