Westley never dies.

I just finished reading The Princess Bride, a thoroughly enjoyable book for all ages. I loved the movie as a kid and now I want to see it again. I remember in about Grade 5 for a time I walked around saying "Hello. My name is something something, you killed my father, prepare to die" and then "Stop saying that!" over and over. I didn't remember Inigo Montoya's name, shame on me.
Tomorrow I leave for Canberra early in the morning, so I have to pack ASAP.
Camelgirl's given me a new tag that she's made herself. You have to 'introduce/describe yourself' and tag three people. Okay let's see how I go.

Hello my name is Jokerman. I'm not telling you my real name because then it's not very mysterious is it? Not that most of you don't know it anyway but let me have my fun. I can start learning to drive in two months, which makes me sad because it means I'm really not a kid anymore. I go to Melbourne High - you know the nerd school - even though I'm a massive slacker and procrastinator. I've loved reading for as long as I can remember. I wish I played an instrument and I love most kinds of music. I spend most of my pocket money on Slurpees and CD's - when I get pocket money. I play xbox and read manga to pass the time. I play basketball and though I'm the first or second tallest, I'm one of the worst. I love playing anyway. I started this blog because Camelgirl told me to, and now I love it.

Now I have to get packed. I tag this to Smorginator, Sabine aaaand Elfie.

I keep a sinister smile and a hole in my heart.

Its holidays once again and I'm counting down to midnight. I do this every night so i can do some major downloading after 12 when it doesn't matter. I saw How To Train Your Dragon on Sunday and I highly recommend it. A very enjoyable film I intend to get on DVD. On Saturday we won basketball and I actually scored a goal! We only won by a point and the for the last minute no actual playing got done as there was confused fouls and stuff.
Today I watched Cop Out with a friend and his friend at Jam Factory, a cinema in South Yarra. An OK film, but not one I'd see again.
I have a new follower! The wonderful Erimentha has decided to join our ragtag crew. Welcome, come in, sit down, have a cracker. I'm almost at double figures now!
I've got a number of new songs I have/will download. Lets see now.Resistance by Muse, Heartkiller by HIM I finally got, Black Hearts (On Fire) by Jet, Holiday by Dizzee Rascal thanks to Camelgirl, Walking On A Dream by Empire Of The Sun and I managed to download Amy Meredith's song Pornstar.
I'm going to the Canberra Folk Festival over the weekend, I'll probably do another post from there.

Babe, I'll be a, flatliner for a, heartkiller.

The lovely Sabine Cara has tagged me for her very own blogger tag. So here we go.
1 image that makes me cringe.
Very creepy.
Next, 2 images that I could stare at for 5 hours.
Notice a baby theme yet? I found all these on weheartit and saved them to my computer, but I left the images open on a tab. Every so often I'd accidentally click the wrong tab and go "aaaaaawwwwwww" babies are so cute. The second is kinda too cute. I can't stop wanting to look at it.
Finally, 1 image that shows a situation I want to be in before I die.
I kinda had a very specific image I wanted to put, but this is close enough. :D
I tag this to Camelgirl because I love every one of her posts, and catherine because I'm sure her answers would be awesome.

So Progress Report: I'm missing you to death

One of my favourite Fall Out boy songs is I Slept With Someone In Fall Out Boy And All I Got Was This Stupid Song Written About Me.
The best bit is the opening lines and the verses. You kinda have to listen to it to know why its good.
I found the cure to growing older
And you're the only place that feels like home
Just so you know, you'll never know
And some secrets weren't meant to be told
But I found the cure to growing older

I'm the first kid to write of hearts, lies, and friends
And I am sorry my conscience called in sick again
And I've got arrogance down to a science
Oh, and I'm the first kid to write of hearts, lies, and friends

Douse yourself in cheap perfume it's
So fitting, so fitting of the way you are
You can't cover it up
Can't cover it up

Douse yourself in cheap perfume it's
So fitting, so fitting of the way you are
You can't cover it up
Can't cover it up

Find a safe place, brace yourself, bite your lips
I'm sending your fingernails and empty bottles you've sipped
Back to your family cause I know you will be missed
So you can find a safe place, brace yourself

They call kids like us vicious and carved out of stone
But for what we've become, we just feel more alone
Always weigh what I've got against what I left
So progress report: I am missing you to death

Douse yourself in cheap perfume it's
So fitting, so fitting of the way you are
You can't cover it up
Can't cover it up

Douse yourself in cheap perfume it's
So fitting, so fitting of the way you are
You can't cover it up
Can't cover it up

Someone old
No one new
Feeling borrowed
Always blue
Someone old
No one new
Feeling borrowed
Always blue
Someone old
No one new
Feeling borrowed
Always blue
Someone old
No one new
Always borrowed
Always you

I found a cure to growing older
I found a cure to growing older

Douse yourself in cheap perfume it's

Douse yourself in cheap perfume it's

I've seen many a face, from young and to old.

I'm listening to Speak Of The Devil by Sum 41. One of my favourite songs by them.
The Cassie Tag!!!
I like boys who can still act like a child and girls who like the same music I do.
I like signing in to MSN at 8 am on the weekend and being the only one there.
I like going to sleep with a smile on my face.
I like reading stories with happy endings.
I like sleeping in.
I like finding a new book that I can't stop reading.
I like my unhealthy disrespect for authority.
I like having conversations about nothing.
I like daydreaming.
I like sketching and drawing in the middle of class.
I like listening to the rain on the roof, or walking through a light drizzle
I love spending ages on weheartit saving images i like to my computer
Today I'm going to win basketball and see a movie

In some ways, I love everything.
Its less, its less of a thing to like, its less distinct, its less particular.
I like things that I like but I love everything.
There’s more choice in like.
'Cause even the worst things have things you love in them.
I don’t know what you mean about things I hate.

I hate being told I can't, I'm not good enough.
I hate being reminded of my failings.
I hate how people always remember the embarrassing things I've done, and never the good ones.
I hate lying in bed, unable to daydream myself to sleep because I was reminded of the truth.
I hate having crap days at school, and then coming home and having to do homework.
I hate how I'm not enough for anyone but in a way I know I wouldn't change myself if I could.

I hate seeing old friendships die.
I hate seeing a guy and a girl walking down the street holding hands, because when I do, my heart breaks a little more.
I hate this, wow...


If I was a villain, then I would steal your heart

Tag numero uno.
In ten years I will:
-be able to drive
-be in university (or past it)
-be 25 and ten months-still love metal
-have found love
-have a job
-have left home a long time ago
-come back to this post and ask myself if I made it where I said I would.

Gimme fuel, gimme fire, gimme that which I desire.

I have two tags from Camelgirl to complete, which should be fun. But first, yesterday I had house Chorals! Basically, the whole school went to the Town Hall in the CBD and sang to try and get points for their house. Every house had to sing My Country as well as a song of their own choice. My house sang Go The Distance from the Disney movie Hercules. We came last :(. There was also instrumentals, where each house had two soloists and an ensemble. We won the instrumentals:D. After school I went and ate pizza and watched silly people dance in public.
I've downloaded Fuel by Metallica which is very good song, and I'm trying to download I Wanna by The All American Rejects, with little success. I'm also trying to get Flashback by Calvin Harris.

Just maybe, we could take the long way home.

On the weekend, I got sick on Saturday night and was worse in the morning. I was almost fine at 430 so I went out and had pizza :D. When I got home I got worse again though and missed school on Monday :(. Yesterday I went to school and did my usual slacking off.
Today I had 'garbo', where basically me and another kid went to school in casual clothes and did emptied bins and helped at the canteen etc. All the Year 10s have to do it. I didn't mind it much especially since we got free food from the canteen after and I finished slightly early.
I found some new songs I need to get and have got. Something With Numbers has a song called Stay With Me Bright Eyes I like, The Sundance Kids have a great song called Drive Away and Miami Horror's song Sometimes is pretty catchy. I love Wish We Were Older by Metro Station and Kid Cudi's Persuit Of Happiness is fun to listen to.
Today a friend showed how much I meant to him. Thank you friend.

Now in Vienna, there's ten, pretty women.

You know that thing where you overhear someone say something, and you hope its about you, or you hope it's not about you, and you don't want to ask for some reason, and you agonise over it for ages? Yeah, I hate that thing.

You control my emotions so completely. Everything you say and don't say, do and don't do, changes my outlook completely. I hate that fact when it makes me sad. I love it when it makes me happy. I hate that it makes me sad more often than it makes me happy.

It's late. This is what happens when I post when its late. You get depressed posts. Goodnight. Sweet dreams.

Hands up if you've heard of the Gorillaz! one, two, three, four, five, five, six.. that can't be right. You're lying. The Gorillaz are a 'virtual band'- a band with fictional members, whose voices and sounds are provided by its creators and various others.
Gorillaz are really interesting. The creator made up a biography for them, and personalities etc.
Its made up of vocalist 2D, band leader ad bass Muroc, guitarist Noodle and drums Russel. They have three albums and a number of singles. They can even 'perform' live through holograms, which I think is really cool, but because its difficult to organise they've only done it a few times.
Anyway, I found out about them through the video for 'Stylo' and then I recognised the song 'Feel Good INC', which I liked immediately.Left to right: Russel, Noodle, 2D, Muroc. Picture curtesy of Wikipedia.
I started writing an acrostic poem, but ended up making a random one. It's called either Sometimes or Beauty. Tell me which it should be.

Sometimes, there are nights,

When I feel scared so,

I leave on the lights.

Look at the stars outside,

At how they boldly shine,

You can see the same, worldwide.

I would like to run away

Want to come with me?

To a place where we can play.

Scream out for some warm shelter,

From the storm that’s all around.

Your words won’t make a sound.

Unbearable is life, but everywhere,

Beauty can be found.

It's rather strange no?

We won basketball today! I'm very pleased. We won 23 to 9, which is brilliant. I played quite well though as always I wish I had more court time.

'Friends' loyalty lasts longer than their memories'

I've got this one song line stuck in my head, but the annoying thing is I only have half of it. It goes ' blessed by the something something' it could even be opressed or raised by the something something. It's very annoying because I'm sure I liked the song when I heard it.

Fun Fact: 100% of 17 year olds who marry other 17 year olds get divorced. According to one of my teachers anyway.

A man is walking down the street with a dolphin in his ear.
Another man walks up to him and says"What the hell? Why do you have a dolphin in your ear."
The man replies "Sorry I can't hear you, I have a dolphin in my ear."

I'm fifteen, what do I know about love?

I found two new songs today on my friend's iPod. 'For Whom The Bell Tolls' and 'Some Kind Of Monster'. Both are by Metallica, the first heavy metal band I listened to.

I just found the song! It's called 'I Am The Summertime'. I heard it in American Pie.:) It doesn't have any lines similiar to what I thought, but meh. I don't mind.

And that ain't what you want to hear/ But thats what I'll do

I found a good song today. It's called Seven Nation Army and It's by the White Stripes. The guitar riff is really good, though the video is kinda dull and the lyrics aren't the best.

So cute!
Otherwise known as SSDD

Three little birdies went down to the shore

Put me back together,
Or seperate the skin from bone.
Leave me all the pieces,
The you can leave me alone,
Tell me the reality is better than the dream,
Caues I found out the hard way
Nothing is what it seems!

Hmm. I forgot to say, I read An Abundance Of Katherines a little while ago. It's probably my favourite of John Green's books as it has a much lighter tone than his other books.
I borrowed Catch-22 and another book from the library today. I brought Catch-22 home, but left the other one behind. I had a good day today. I didn't get in trouble like I thought I would for not doing my homework (again). My favourite was the last two periods where I had drawing. I spoen half the lesson just deciding what picture to draw, then printed off a biohazard symbol to sketch. I've done most of it, so it shouldn't take too long to finish in the next lesson.
So all up I'm feeling pretty good.
I've been reading a manga calleed Kaikan Phrase. It's absolutely disgusting honestly, but I can't stop reading it. Basically, a high school girl meets a famous popstar, they fall in love and she becomes hhis band's lyricist. Its a type of manga called shojo, which is intended for girls below the age of about 20. It unabashedly outlines the perfct relationship, and is completely unrealistic. So yeah. Absolutely horrible and I can't stop. I'm so sad sometimes.
Hmm. That's enough I think.

I've come to talk with you again.

It's been a while since I've posted. I kept meaning to, but I couldn't be bothered getting around to it. I just finished watching American Pie, which I found quite silly, but a lot of fun. If you don't know the plot, basically four guys make a 'pact' to get laid on prom night. Their misadventures in getting there are quite funny to watch - for me anyway.
I'm typing on my new laptop, which is already kinda screwed up because I forced it to shut down in the middle of installing updates. I'm kinda hoping it'll fix itself. It's been raining a lot, as you might have noticed, which is kinda comforting for me. I like rain.On Friday night I went to CG's house and went to sleep around 5. Yesterday I went to the birthday party of this old family friend. He turned 50 and had a small get together. We ate at this Thai place in Laverton, the food was some of the best I've had in a long time. Today I went to have dinner at the house of an acquaintance from primary school named Thomas. Neither of us like each other, but his dad is our finance manager, and my dad plays golf with him, plus his mum and mine are friends and his little brother isn't too bad. Thomas wasn't there but everyone else was so it wasn't too bad.
I found a new song curtesy of American Pie - One Week by Barenaked Ladies.

How can I help it if I think you're funny when you're mad,
Trying hard not to smile though I feel bad.
I'm the kind of guy who laughs at a funeral,
Can't understand what I mean?
Well, you soon will.
I have a tendency to wear my mind on my sleeve,
I have a history of taking off my shirt.

And now for some reason my post is stuck in italics. Stupid HTML.
I was going to write a song by the way, but I forgot it before I could write it down. I can still sorta remember the words but I can't get the tune. If I finish it it'll go up here naturally.
Umm. I've got lotsa homework I gotta do. :(
I also have to write a story for a competition. I mostly know what I want to write, but it's too much of a bother.
I'm feeling pretty good lately, as I've figured out somethings that had been bothering me. So yeah... happy face.
Now let's hope I can post this without blogger or my computer getting annoyed with me.
Also, for some reason my download has been massively used up again. I don't get it, it must be the new computer downloads and stuff.

Hello darkness my old friend,

I've just spent about 2 hours on weheartit,( listening to Simon & Garfunkel) like i said I would, just going through picture after picture with the 'text' tag. I always look at that one because I find it more interesting to read what people have written, what they've decided to put out onto the website, as a declaration of who they are, or how they feel, or what they think. scanning and reading through the hundreds of quotes, comments and ideals gives me a weird feeling. Because love is a primary theme, I unconsciously match every comment to myself. I'm going to save my favourites, a number of which you may never see simply because.. I said so.:D. Here's some good ones though.Best story ever.

Really sorry. I can't help it.


Do you?
Awesome optical illusion.
Reason #1 I like small children: they understand things. #2: My mind works the same way
#3: I have the same mental age as them sometimes #4: They accept people and ideas so easily.

End of post

Bam Balam.

Oh my god I can't beleive it, (I've never been this far away from home) I've got a new follower. Numero 8. Its pretty surprising.
Woah Black Betty!
Bam balam.
Yeah Black Betty!
Bam balam.
Black Betty had a child,
Bam balam,
The damn thing gone wild,
Bam balam,
She always ready
Bam balam,
she's ohh, rock steady,
Bam balam.

I downloaded Black Betty (finally) now that my internet's working again (finally).
Umm. I had Athletics at school today and will have it again on Thursday. I'm not in anything, being slow and unathletic, but its a good excuse to miss most of two days of school.
So I'm all good, now someone else post so I can read something!
I'm going to find pictures on weheartit.
