I love it when people call and are the bitchiest fuckwads in the world because THEY dialed the wrong department and had the same conversation with ten different people in the wrong departments and didn't listen to any of them when they told her to call the right department.

I don't have access to the other department's information. THAT WOULD SORT OF DEFEAT THE PURPOSE OF HAVING OTHER DEPARTMENTS, WOULDN'T IT?
I'm not with-holding information from you because I'm a dick or because I think it's funny or something. If I say "I don't know what to do with that number you just gave me. You're telling me you got this reference number at a different department, so you should call the department that you got the number from and they ought to be able to fix your problem."

I realize you're irritated and annoyed and have been transferred around to ten different people, I realize you've had the same conversation with ten different people, but you need to realize that the last ten people you had a conversation with WASN'T ME SO I DON'T KNOW WHAT THE FUCK YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT.

There seems to be this huge suspicion of Customer Service Departments, where like, we're actually employed by Satan and don't exist for any other purpose than to make your difficult life more difficult. Actually, a lot of these people make their own lives more difficult by not fucking listening when someone says 'I'M SORRY YOU'VE CALLED THE GIFTCARD DEPARTMENT, WE HANDLE PLASTIC GIFTCARDS, IF YOU WANT THE TARGET VISA CARD NUMBER, HERE IT IS.'

The Lack of Originality in Cinema

January 16th, 2008 (07:32 pm)

Am I the only one out there who's irritated with Hollywood's lack of originality?
It seems that hardly any new stories are coming out anymore. They are all supheroes, children's books, sequels or other comics cooked up for the silver screen.
There is nothing wrong with adapting these and making sequels and such... It's just when that's all that there is to choose from it makes me, as an avid film-watcher, bored as hell.

I don't know about you, but I'm tired of seeing superheroes on the screen yet again, and as great as The Golden Compass is, it's a book adapted for the screen, as well as Harry Potter and Eragon and a number of others. Child doesn't know they have strange/mystical powers/are the chosen one. Child finds out they have strange/mystical powers/are the chosen one. Child discovers self. Child almost gets their ass kicked and gets saved by psychologically important third party. Child goes on to learn how to use powers better. Child saves world. Seriously, I love the HDM trilogy, I really do and I see a lot of points of originality and mold-busting in the fact that it directly confronts the oppression of religion and authority. But in the end, it is another book about an amazing child protagonist who learns to save the world.

I'm tired of Disney raping and re-hashing their great library of golden classics for half-baked and unimaginative sequels animated in choppy Flash by outsourced animators. I'm sick of them buying out any animation company that might even think of rivalling them, and then, Borg-like, assimilating them, working them to death and sucking all the originality and life from them, forcing them to fit into the conservative republican image. Animation has gone down to a sickeningly decrepit degree, in film and television alike. I look back to features produced by the masters such as Osamu Tezuka, and marvel at the quality of work produced even in those days when equipment was hard to come by and in a country still making a comeback economically. I switch on the television and see the latest crap slap-dashedly done in Flash and I retch. What are we feeding our kids visually?

I'm tired of seeing the latest slasher film done again and again and again, to the point where the damn killer himself is dead and they still manage to do another film in the same series.

I'm tired of American screenwriters snatching concepts from Japan and re-writing, re-casting and re-hashing the same thing with some prettier effects.

I'm tired of the same romantic/situational comedy/"go-grrl"/bumpkin bullcrap that keeps getting pumped out under the 'feel-good' premise. The world doesn't work like that. The ugly chump doesn't get the hot girl. Not everything works out in the end. Not everyone is there in the end. Not all the time.

I want to see something new. I want to see a great, multi-million dollar production with amazing talent and sound and effort invested into an entirely new world with new characters and new concepts that have never been seen before in any format, be it book, series, comic, celebrity or internet web-comic. I want to get to know a new idea of characters and the setting they're in entirely from scratch, from the images and dialogue presented to me. I don't want to be able to go home and reference the comic or the book to see how 'faithful' it is. I want to go home and go onto the forums dedicated to it and speculate and create and add to the world by thinking about it.

And that's what I'm gonna do.

My cat pissed in my clean clothes that had yet to be sorted and folded today.

I'm guessing it's because I won't let her in my room where she can attack and harrass my rabbit and two rats. I can't even count the number of times I've grabbed her and thrown her out, for camping outside my closed door until I open it. Immediately thereafter, an orange streak of feline retardation flows into the room at just slightly less than the speed of light, only to be hucked right back out the doorframe.

I bet that's why.
I love that cat.

Big fucking surprise. Even more mind-fucking drama on the old journal. Woop de shit. I don't care. Or rather, I care just enough to post this.
Computer is broken.
Anyways, I'm going home.

So, I blow balls at HTML but that's okay, since I primarily leave the coding to the coders. I know enough to paste an image in, do some links, and change some text to fit what I need.
Oh and in IE I can make little text boxes with different border colours and I can customize the scrollbar like a fag, but whatever.

It's been a very long day today. Possibly because it's 6 in the morning, and is now 12 hours and 24 minutes after I got off work. I don't know.
There's this kid at work that's sixteen years old or some damn thing and has been hitting on me like stupid. It's fucking hilarious.
I fell in the shower the other day and cracked open my head see, so I have stitches and look like electric blue Frankenstein over my eyebrow, and he asked what happened. He's like 'I wish I were that shower hur hurr, I'd have hotties falling into me.'
I was like, UM. YES. YOU ARE SO COOL.
But I gave him a break and didn't say nought, because the poor kid is sixteen or whatever, give him credit for trying but damn if he gives me any of that again I'm liable to let him down real hard.

Sorry for sounding like I've got major ADHD at the moment, that's seriously not the case, but it's 6:17am and I need to go to bed now.

So I'm sitting here watching Robot Chicken and thinking. Channel surfing is a great game.
Sometimes, I channel surf for ten seconds or so, and the resulting sentence is hilarious.

"Tri-corder readings confirm that cleaning can be made easier by age reducing formulas."
"Get up close and personal with someone you love that was shot four times in the Oxy-Clean."
"The only thing she really wants this holiday is Guitar Hero at Future Shop so get the hell out of my  house, processed cheese with freshening action!"

So recently life is like it's been thrown haphazardly into a colossal blender and then left on with the lid off.
Things are smeared everywhere and I can't tell you the difference between an hour or two days ago. It's just one of those things. I've been downloading music today (Piracy for the win) and largely keeping myself awake and sane. It can be hard when there's a lot of stress going on, but it's always manageable. Something smells like plastic in here and I'm willing to bet it was Amarant leaving a damnable container on the element again. Silly kid.

My journal's just been a couple of lines here and there and that sucks, I'm hoping to get more time to myself in the future. It really seems that the only time I get on the computer is in the wee hours, when everyone else is finally in bed, and I'm not too long after.  Feh.
Honestly I can't bring myself to say much more tonight, being as it's already three thirty or somesuch and I have things to do tomorrow.
Stupid things and such.
