1. I've asked so many of you for the answers to this meme, I feel like I should do it too.

Comment, and I'll:
1. Tell you why I friended you.
2. Associate you with something - fandom, a song, a color, a photo, a word etc.
3. Tell you something I like about you.
4. Tell you a memory I have of you.
5. Ask something I've always wanted to know about you.
6. Tell you my favorite user pic of yours.
7. In return, you must can post this in your LJ.

2. I've been to quite a lot of cinema movies in the last couple of weeks. I saw Slumdog Millionaire, Che: The Argentine and Che: Guerrilla.

I'm glad I read all the backlash for Slumdog Millionaire before I saw it. It meant that I went in with normal expectations, as opposed to sky high ones. I rather like it. I don't think it's realistic or anything but it didn't bore me and it was cool to see Dev Patel in something that wasn't Skins. Also! I love the soundtrack so hard.
I'm not much of a Bollywood/India person. I mean, I know some songs (Choli Ke Peeche, I was proud of myself when I realized that one of the songs on the Slumdog Millionaire soundtrack sounded like it. Apparently that was the whole idea.) and I think Madhuri Dixit is way hot but I don't really know much about it (Except that my parents saw a lot of them in Iran. Apparently Bollywood films were popular back then. I totally laughed when I saw the dorky looks on their faces when they talked about Raj Kapoor.). This might change, though! (I also blame [ profile] chisakami)

And I loved Che. Absolutely brilliant. I can totally understand why Sean Penn mentioned how he was surprised and disappointed about how Benicio del Toro wasn't nominated for an Oscar. There's not much I can say here. It's just an amazing movie (though I might be biased, being a commie with a commie family). I though the camera work was great and the soundtrack was cool. It had a lot of classic guitar and this really heartbreaking song by Mercedes Sosa at the end. And it had Santiago Cabrera (of Heroes and Merlin) as an awesome guerrilla. I knew he was hot but it's amazing how hot I thought he was in this movie, even with the huge beard. I think it had to do with his prankster attitude and him talking Spanish.
I noticed how quiet my mother was after the second movie (the one in which Che dies) but didn't say anything about it. Then, when we were driving home my mother suddenly said: "I saw that photo of him in the newspapers back in Iran. The one in which he was dead. I was twelve, I think." Sometimes I forget what these people mean to my parents.

3. If you think I use the word LOL too many times... it's also because lol is an actual Dutch word. It means fun. Yeah.

4. Somebody ([ profile] michaela0823) made this really awesome icon about Arthurian legend and [ profile] misstopia mentioned how the Greek mythology loop would be much longer. I though: "Dude, I have to make one!" It only has the Greek gods, though. If you know what lines I could use for the Greek heroes, please help! (I'm thinking of Achilles, Odysseus, Ajax, Paris, Hector, Patroclus, Theseus, Perseus, Aeneas and others)
the Arthur one:||And mine:

5. I also made some snarky Shakespeare icons. I kinda want to use them but I think they're too snarky for me. But I can show them!


6. Thanks to TVTropes I read the SF short story I Have No Mouth And I Must Scream. It won a Hugo award in 1968 and was written by Harlan Ellison (Also known for his groping incidents). Like the TVTropes page says, it's pure concentrated Nightmare Fuel (There's a link to the story on the TVTropes page. I want to share the pain). Even the title is creepy. D:

7. I never actually saw any programs by the Dutch Public Jewish Network, until today. It was just a kosher cooking show but I watched all of it because Jewish music is swanky and cool (it was background music, but still). And my mum watched it because she likes food.
Mother: "This reminds me, I should use more chickpeas."
Me: "Hell no!"
Mother: "You can't be Middle Eastern and not like chickpeas! It's just not done, girl."
