Ahhh, that's better.

Thanks to x_ariadne_x's influence, I've finally gotten around to using that dye that was lying around the bathroom and turned my hair black again.  I was enjoying my brief stint as a red-head, but the roots were getting obvious and it was starting to fade anyway, so now it's back to black.  W00tah!

Will take photo when it's been straightened.  Before I combed it I looked oddly like Edward Scissorhands.

Only, y'know, without the scars and the terrified expression...

Edit: Why did it take me this long to see the Charlie and the Chocolate Factory trailer?? *Burtonsquee* (Well, probably because I stopped posting/reading in timburton and managed to miss the fifteen million links to it...)

Looks absolutely frelling amazing.

However, just one thing: anyone who tells you it's a remake of the 1970s Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory is not only lying, but wrong. It is not. It is, in fact, an adaptation of the novel by Roald Dahl, which the 1970s version with Gene Wilder was not. Yes, yes, we all know Burton made a mistake by 'reimagining' Planet of the Apes, but he's not doing that now. He's making a new movie; he's not trying to steal anyone's childhood memories. Honestly, I wish he'd done the adaptation of Matilda, because that film was appalling...

Tim Burton should definitely make adaptations of all the Dahl novels. Definitely. I've been wanting an adaptation of The Twits for some time now.

And the music's by Danny Elfman, so yayyyy!

Definitely going to be a Johnny Deppish year for films, though. Charlie, Pirates of the Caribbean 2 and The Corpse Bride (very very excited about that, too...) all in the runnings so far. It seems to be a rule of thumb that Tim Burton+Johnny Depp=absolutely nothing can go wrong. So all in all, I'm very happy with Hollywood right now. :D

Quick message

F.A.O. bizarre_imagery,

We're eating quite late (just about to sit down) so I'm having to set the video for MHL:AAA - will probably watch the whole thing after the entire of MHL14 has finished, so I'll give you a full review/low-down at about 1.00am, if you can wait that long. :)

Sorry. :)
