Halloween Horror- El Laberinto del Fauno

"A long time ago, in the underground realm, where there are no lies or pain, there lived a Princess who dreamt of the human world. She dreamt of blue skies, soft breeze and sunshine. One day, eluding her keepers, the Princess escaped. Once outside, the brightness blinded her and erased every trace of the past from her memory. She forgot who she was, and where she came from. Her body suffered cold, sickness and pain. Eventually she died. However, her father, the King, always knew that the Princess' soul would return, perhaps in another body, in another place, at another time. And he would wait for her, until he drew his last breath, until the world stopped turning..."
"Pan's Labyrinth" One of the most beautiful films ever made. This movie won 3 Oscars and 68 other awards and about 70 other nominations. It is truly a work of art. I can't even describe how amazing, beautiful, and captivating this movie is. It has everything you can think of. The acting is phenomenal, the scenes are breathtaking and the lines are so memorable and quoteworthy. Sometimes its scary, other times sad, other times blood-curling and other times just plain beautiful. It will always be one of my favorite movies of all time. If you have not watch this I don't even know what to say to you- you have missed out on one of the most enchanting horror/dark fairytales ever.
"...because it is in pain that we find the meaning of life..."

By the way, this movie is by Guillermo del Torro (Spain) with english subtitles. If you have watched this movie and you enjoyed it then you must also watch "The Orphanage" by the one and only Guillermo Del Torro. Another truly beautiful film.

forever young, I want to be forever young

I want to get bangs again. But I feel they are so high-maintenance. I have dyed my hair jet black again. For some strange reason my hair keeps turning lighter with the years (shouldn't it be the opposite?) Anywhos, I dyed it jet black again but now I feel I should get bangs. Maybe it's a part of me that wants to stay young. I have seen about three or four white hairs *gasp* I know! I had one since I was around ten, but its like now they have decided to multiply -_-. And I'm even deciding if I should get some anti-aging creams and serums since I see about everyone in their twenties is doing it. I don't know, isn't that too early? Oh don't mind me, good for you if you skipped reading all this nonsense. I'm having a late-twenties crisis! 

My favorite song of the week, yeah I know, no wonder huh ;)

letters from far

dusty postage stamps on paper, put in place to keep your words safe 
until they reach the lips of someone new, 
as they read each word aloud and keep the memory of your voice breathing them quietly,
listening to your story unfold in every swirling letter, 
and the pictures in your mind appear through sleepy golden eyelashes. 
 -Chloe "we could go anywhere"
And if there ever comes a day when we can't be together, keep me in your heart, I'll stay there forever

wake me up when we get there.
I need some inspiration.

I'm having some blah days. Nothing much to do. And yes, I know, my blog should be full of entries now that I have the time- however, I have no inspiration to even write. I have neglected you, I know. Instead I come in here and read other blogs. As a matter of fact, its most probable that I have read about every single entry you have written these past few days. I don't comment all the time. But I have stalked your page, just so you know :), specially to those I have subscribed recently too.
