I Laugh at Unfortunate Things

I have a bit of an issue when I rewatch movies…

I laugh at unfortunate things.

For example, I was watching X-Men Origins: Wolverine earlier, and in the beginning, where kid Wolverine gets all pissed off and starts screaming, looking at those new spiky claws bursting forth from between his knuckles…

I was laughing.

Laughing pretty darn hard. Dramatic kid acts dramatically.

Later, when there’s the dramatic parting between Victor and Jimmy/Logan, I’m giggling a fit, and as soon as it scene flashes to the Canadian Rockies, I’m still giggling, this time about how he’d like “I’m going to get away from the fighting… now where to do tha–CANADA! Canada! Of course!”

Of course, Canada… and then, after he decides to go Canadian, he also decides to be a lumberjack.

That’s not a cliché old Canadian job at all XD

In other movies, a character dies dramatically, I giggle, A very sad parting between two characters that you KNOW should be together.. giggles again..

I think it’s because in the first time I watch a movie, I have all of myself distracted by the moving-pictures of newness to attract all of my attention, making me try to think ahead as to what’s going to happen (because I like to spoil ‘surprises’ for myself.. I usually guess right. I do this for books as well).

The second or third or whatever time around, I blame the giggles on my humour mixed with Sanity’s humour and Insanity’s humour.

Aha, I know that part of you, if you’ve read other posts of mine, are thinking “Right, Insanity and Sanity again, huh?”

But I also know that those same thoughts are thinking “Um, Sanity has a sense of humour?”

Yes, Sanity has a sense of humour.

And it’s very close to Insanity’s idea of it, especially in regards to movies.

Insanity can find humour in pretty much anything, and Sanity finds humour out of ridiculous things… like a kid yelling out while looking like they’re acting.

This leads to both laughing over stupid parts of movies that, if you were watching it get filmed on its own, you’d be giggling as well.

That usually causes me to giggle at cartoons as well, when a character says something that, when I think about them saying it in a studio, makes me laugh.

This is why any thoughts about acting–vocal or otherwise– have always been dashed.

My Mom can help me in convincing you of this, as she can tell you multiple times that I thought Id be clever and lie to her, and will have a serious face for about 2 seconds after I lie…

And then I’ll burst into giggles.

There’s some more inappropriate giggling…

The Life of an Interesting Made-Up Character

I just read a book called


Worst Day Ever”

by Barry Lysa. He’s apparently also known for the story Fanboy and Gothgirl, something that I’ve heard of, but haven’t read.

I might read it now though.

The story is a blog of a Mutant in Xaviers school for the Gifted, and his supremely underwhelming mutant power.

I’m not going to tell you what his power is, as that would likely keep you from reading the book to find out as I did. check out the actual summary HERE, or check it out at the bottom of this blog.

While reading it, I had a similar thought as I had when watching the Julie & Julia movie.

With the J&J movie I wanted to read the blog and do something similar.

With this I wanted to do another blog, this time for a fictional character with some sort of power or problem.

I could do a girl dealing with having suddenly grown a tail, perhaps a monkey tail, or perhaps a boy who loves to swim but ha to quit his schools swimming team because he suddenly develops the ability to breath underwater and the chlorine bothers him.

Something like that.

Or I coud do one about a sibling of a mutant, talking about what it’s like being the sister/brother of someone who can set your hair on fire if they get upset enough.

So many thoughts run through my head about what I COULD do, but nothing quite seems like the best idea. Nothing seems as though I wouldn’t eventually abandon it.

It’s a very cool idea, even though I know that some people would make comments like “does this chick know that she can’t breath underwater?” and “This is soooooo stupid 😐 Why put this trash up here?” which is a bit of a barrier, but I feel as though this would be like making a book, or getting into the mindset of ONE character.

It’s interesting, as you would be able to get everything from only one perspective, as you get in the book I talked about, and it would be interesting if anyone actually became enough of a fan to draw pictures to be put in as well…

Of course, I also wish people would send me pictures anyway, because I love getting pictures 😀

The book was very interesting, and the mutant power is something that you can get your mind around how it might feel like to have it. It’s also written in such a way that says that yes, this might have actually been written by the character, and gives little insights into how Eric is actually feeling, from short blogs that tell of how he misses his mom, to the long blogs that show how much he likes Wolverine.

There’s just so much to it!

Here’s the summary 😀

Hi. My name is Eric Mattias and I have the world’s suckiest mutant power. If you don’t believe me, just read this book and you’ll find out for sure.

Wolverine: Worst Day Ever

I live at Xavier’s School for Gifted Students, which is like home base for the mutants of the world.  You’ve probably seen mutants on TV and learned about them in school, and you probably wish that you could go to school with a bunch of people who have awesome powers. Because you probably think you would get to hang out with the X-Men and fight evil mutants and do stuff like that, but guess what? You would be wrong! Instead, I have to go to school and I play on my computer and I’m alone a lot because — like I said before — I have a sucky mutant power.

So anyway, this book is sort of about my life as a mutant and it’s about my worst day ever. And Wolverine’s worst day ever, too. So read it. Or don’t. It’s up to you.

Very cool huh?

Tell me your thoughts, opinions?
