As described in the scenes above, the coin directly reflects Harvey's emotional development throughout the entire movie: first, it is of a pure, "good" nature (double-headed), and never fails to do the "right" thing when asked (flipped); however, during the interrogation scene, it shows the potential for a downfall even though there is no real danger of it making the "wrong" choice in its current state (it can't physically land on tails). Then, it is given to Rachel, and due to the same explosion that kills her, it becomes permanently "scarred," (burned on one side). Because of this trauma, it is no longer ideologically capable of making purely "good" decisions due to its being so damaged (it no longer has two good sides) but it isn't solely restricted to "bad" decisions either. As a result, its nature is inherently random (it functions on an unbiased 50/50 chance), and it can therefore perceive itself as being free from responsibility for the horrible consequences of its actions (causing deaths by "happening" to land on the scarred side). In the end, however, it puts itself in such a position that it is launched into the air during a flip without anyone able to catch it, and while it lands on the ground even as it shows potential for redemption (heads), it is too late: the coin has already doomed itself because it allowed itself to be flipped in the first place.

...THIS MOVIE. SO BRILLIANT.

Need to pick up my DVD today come to think of it omg omg

It's official: my motif final paper for Film 1 shall be me rambling on about HOW AWESOME TWO-FACE AND HIS COIN ARE.

SWEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEET.

Trying to figure out a topic for a persuasive speech that I actually want to do and that my inappropriately conservative Speech 1 teacher won't grade low on principle is, however, not so sweet. :(

BAHHHH. HOW CAN I NOT GO BACK TO THEM, FLIST? HOW? THEY ARE TOO BEAUTIFUL. :(

I will commence the torture S3-watching when Court comes back tomorrow. SHE WROTE UP A DRINKING GAME FOR MY SANITY. \o/

In other news, I need to make sure two of my finals don't overlap EEP. And I need to make sure I get my extra credit done. And figure out a movie with a motif to write my film paper on. DO I DARE DO HARVEY!COIN? DO I?

Out of curiosity and because of good word-of-mouth, I started watching Fringe. I'M ACTUALLY ENJOYING IT QUITE A BIT. :X The Pilot was especially good – really sucks you into it. And it's nice to watch a show not classified in the so-called "female lead genre" that... y'know, has a female lead. What a concept.

I SHOULD SLEEP NOW. Even though I am not tired.

Okay. I only have scope, psychological effects, and Batman third-person sample left to do. Okay. ;; I have later today (once I sleep) and the day after, right? I CAN DO THIS. (I'm totally waking up "early" today to get in extra hours on this. >_>)

IN OTHER NEWS, my birthday this year was awesome and touched me deeply simply for the fact that my friends and family showed me, through little things, just how much they knew me and wanted to make me feel special. My friends apparently conspired together and succeeded at surprising me with exactly what I wanted (aka APOLLO JUSTICE and SUNNY SEASON 3 WOOO), and for my 21st, my dad got a bottle of champagne ahahaha. 8D I really don't like the taste of alcohol, but I had about a quarter of a glass for the sake of the occasion. Because yes. 21.

And seriously, even though I didn't go out and do anything out of the ordinary, I didn't need to. My parents being sweet and my buds being there to hang out with me and surprise me with Batman PEZ dispensers and Ben & Jerry's chocolate chip cookie dough is all I need in my old age.

We ordered pizza, ate cake, and watched Beauty and the Beast and Iron Man. It was amazing. <3

Okay, so Supernatural tonight was motherfucking awesome. Not that I should ever expect anything different from this goddamn amazing show.

Supernatural 403 RAMBLE. )

And you know what else I love? That's right: It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia. Oh my god the car crashing and the attempted explosion and MAC IN THE WEDDING DRESS HAHAHAHAHAHA. Also PFFFT at Dennis for being all butthurt at not being invited into the SUICIDE PACT. And Frank with the mannequin. And Dee on the bus. And the glory hole. This show is so fucking ridiculous. Ridiculously brilliant. I'LL EAT THEIR BUTTS AND THEN MY STOMACH WILL BE FILLED... WITH THEIR BUTTS

Thursday is officially my favorite day of the week.

Okay, back to Batman app now. I did 1000+ words of it yesterday so HOPEFULLY I CAN CONTINUE though I have to sleep soon auugghhh

EDIT: FINISHED MY PERSONAL HISTORY. Just got... almost all the other major sections left auugggh. BUT STILL. It's really kind of scary how I did pretty much all of it from memory. No, seriously: I torrented the movie to double-check sequences of events I was sure I had out of order and it was all right. ERIN, THIS IS NOT HEALTHY.

Anyway, time to sleep. D8

I need to stop thinking of this Reverend Nathan business and start getting back into THE GODDAMN BATMAN because seriously, that app is due on my birthday HOW SAD IS THAT less than two weeks from now ANNNND I DON'T HAVE MUCH DONE ON IT. Plus it is better for my health to be obsessed with a series whose spirit and characters were just recently encapsulated as one of the most genuinely amazing movies of all time rather than... ...yeah.

[livejournal.com profile] burningvigor [livejournal.com profile] merelyaphase FRIENDSLIST

YOUR MISSION, SHOULD YOU CHOOSE TO ACCEPT IT, IS TO HELP ME WITH THIS ENDEAVOR. Seriously, I'm on the fence on whether or not I have the drive to finish this app in time and whether or not I can play a good Bruce but I haven't quite lost the drive either because I start thinking about possibilities with Bruce and squeeing deep inside like some burning fire of LIFE and and and I need some encouragement in whatever form you can give me and Court finished her Harvey app like two millenia ago and and and HALP. D:

Orite and I shelled out 15 bucks for [livejournal.com profile] dark_knight a while back too so YEAH REALLY NEED TO GET THIS APP GOING but I should probably sleep now.

In other news, I had two dreams night before last and three dreams last night. Out of those five, four involved Heroes and three involved Nathan. MY BRAIN IS CLEARLY GETTING DESPERATE HERE especially since it was doing crossovers of like Disneyland and Heroes and MGS4 and Zelda and STAR FOX(??). It made Nathan the main star of my dream's version of the end of MGS4. Yeah, I dunno.

Most recent Heroes season 3 trailer. MONDO SPOILERS (or at least as many spoilers as a teaser can allow).

Homg fangirl babble. )

This season had better kick season 2's ass as much as it looks like it will or I will.... well, I won't be happy. D:

Also, there is a giant bus shelter poster of Nathan RIGHT WHERE I TURN TO GO TO MY HOUSE off of Olympic. I want to go steal it, but that would be something kinda pathetic to get arrested for. :(

Also, GOD DAMN YOU, HEROES. I should be working on my Batman app, not flailing over Petrellis. ;;

Man, I haven't updated in like... over two weeks. D8 This is especially weird considering that important shit has actually been going on:

• My brother went off to college! I thought I'd be sad, but the only real difference in my life has been peace and quiet and the occasional realization of HEY I DON'T NEED TO WORRY ABOUT MY LITTLE BROTHER SCREWING ____ UP ANYMORE. As our final family excursion, we went to see The Dark Knight in IMAX; my second time in IMAX, their first time. They were all v. impressed, which is saying something considering this was my parents' THIRD TIME seeing the movie. YEAH. MY PARENTS. THREE TIMES JESUS. My grand total is five times now ogawd.

• I started the fall semester of school! \o/ I'm taking Speech 1, Astronomy 1, and Film 1. In Film 1, I somehow ended up sitting next to this girl who ended up in my mini-discussion group and with whom I had the following exchanges:

Exchanges. )

We ended up talking about shows and movies and stuff during the break and she also fangirled the exact same way over how Dark Knight was written so amazingly and adapted so brilliantly from the comics specifically with the parallels between Two-Face and the Joker and Batman and SO DELICIOUS kasdjhfk which is something I uh DID NOT EXPECT to come across RANDOMLY. Plus, she's interested in writing. WHUT.

I also ended up running into an old high school class buddy with whom I rambled with about MGS back in the day, so we exchanged phone numbers and e-mail addresses and stuff, which was cool. :D

• I FINALLY finished season 2 of Dexter! Unfortunately, Dexter suffers the same fate as Heroes in that its first season is absolutely phenomenal and then its second season is uh.... not. D: Still, while the ending was kind of dissatisfying to me, it was a hell of a lot better than the middle of the season. FOR BOTH SHOWS I WISH THE BEST OF LUCK FOR SEASON 3.

• Speaking of Heroes: Watched the deleted scenes on Court's s2 DVDs... AND NOW I KNOW WHERE NATHAN DISAPPEARED TO IN S2, JESUS. !Deleted Scenes, S2, and S3-Teaser spoilers! )

It was also really cool to see MOAR NATHANSdkfjshfds ::foams at mouth:: the alternate ending for S2 and all of the now-unuseable footage that came of it. Definitely makes the DVDs of an otherwise disappointing season worth the money for a hardcore Heroes fan IMHO.

...AND I NEED TO WORK MORE ON BATMAN APP AHHHHHHHH and omg SYLAR AND PETER DUKIN' IT OUT KINDA WOOO

Court killed me during the course of our one-on-one RP earlier tonight.

Anyway, Batman Batman Batman Batman, since that's easier than typing up a whole entry that basically says the same damn thing. :( God, I'd feel like such a sheep if it weren't for my long-lived Batman love and the fact that I went and bought TAS before TDK came out. (YEAH, FORGET I'D BARELY READ ANY OF THE COMICS BEFORE NOW. I'M STILL ALLOWED TO FEEL BETTER ABOUT MYSELF, DAMMIT.) ....However, now they're selling all the DVD sets I bought for 40 bucks two months ago for like 20 bucks on BestBuy.com. ;_; WHYYYYYYY

Watched assorted TAS episodes and Return of the Joker with Jenny and Court yesterday, and damn, I'd remembered Return of the Joker was enjoyable, but I forgot that it really is fucking good. I was just really sad when I realized I had the ridiculously censored version. So now of course I must buy the uncut one... uhhh... when I have more money to blow.

Speaking of blowing money, gonna see TDK tomorrow with Jenny for my first IMAX showing of it. 8D YAAAAAY~ Should be fantastico.

Oh also my BATMAN poster came in the mail today and it is HUGE AND BEAUTIFUL. Shall put it up now. God, I need a better way to take pictures.

Okay, this is mainly just an excuse to use this new icon. UM.

The Mustang's brakes got fixed (sorta; they still squeak like hell) so I've been driving it lately. \o/ FUN. Today, me, Court, Andrew, and Jenny all went to Bay Cities, got food, and then came back here and hung out. And played board games. And we had an awesome time. Driving in a convertible on the freeway with your best buds on a nice day... one of moments in life when you're like "man, this is perfect."

Parents are out of town and so's my brother, so... I got the house to myself! I've been letting it become a mess more just because than out of laziness, and I cleaned up some of it with Jenny today. Need to get up early tomorrow to water all of Mom's plants and then... go back to sleep. Or maybe stay up until the sun rises and water them. And then sleep.

Watched some Batman: TAS tonight and then finished rewatching Batman Begins and taking notes. Also am practicing writing Bruce in a one-on-one RP with Court. Gonna be bringing Liquid back into Conscripted tomorrow, and hopefully bringing Sylar into dayshift at Damned. Annnnnd stuff.

...Also, I have never in all my years figured out a proper way to list video game remixes in the damn current music field. D:

Ohhh, fuck the world–I have that fucking Montgomery Flea Market thing stuck in my head. D: Fortunately (or unfortunately), I also have this image stuck in my head to combat it. Oh god as if the actual scene wasn't ALREADY HOT ENOUGH HORRIBLE DEFORMITIES AND HOMICIDAL TENDENCIES INCLUDED. D: D: D:

Damned-wise: I'm proud to say I've been tearing through apps now that I'm done with my class and learning how to give myself a reward after every five apps. (That's right, [livejournal.com profile] damnedites: your app reading process runs on ice cream and cupcakes.) Jenny came over, so I haven't gotten to read many apps until now, but... back to the grindstone!

Also, holy shit my dad makes good oatmeal cookies. And another reward I gave myself was the opportunity to start working on my Batman app. 8D For once in my life, I've been writing the personal history without referring back to notes or the original material every few seconds a ha ha ha. XD; I have seen Batman Begins waaaaayyy too many times. I'm also glad that I was planning to app cartoon Batman for a while before this. Makes me feel less impulsive. >_>; Still, my memory's starting to get hazy so uh might pull out the DVD soon.

I had a Dark Knight dream last night (I've been having Batman dreams in general, but this one I can actually remember a little beyond the theme) and I'm pretty sure some part of it involved me being the Joker. THIS IS.... VERY DISTURBING FOR A WIDE VARIETY OF REASONS. D: D: D: (I'm pretty sure I was scheming on how to get Sal Maroni's men to trust me enough so they would turn their backs and I could kill them. WTF.)

In other news.... okay, that's a lie since nearly everything in my life is Batman related right now as I've become fucking obsessed in a fairly short amount of time...

Turned out IMAX was sold out for today, but we're still gonna go see TDK again for free at Jenny's theatre. 8D ahhakjadsfoah Also, I went through my Batman: TAS DVDs and ripped all the best Two-Face episodes to share with the world.

Rambling about TAS Batman & Two-Face. )

Speaking of which, [livejournal.com profile] scans_daily makes me realize why I never really warmed up to the Batman/Robin pairing beyond gay jokes and laughs. Apparently, I was waiting for something much better.

Also, while before TDK, I found it impossible to choose my favorite Batman villain between the Joker and Two-Face, I can't deny that it's Two-Face at this point. Shouldn't have been able to deny it when I FLIPPED OUT at finding out Harvey Dent became Two-Face in the movie through that damn trailer, but you know, I'm overly cautious at declaring things like that. >_>;

Rambling about Two-Face and the Joker. Some TDK spoilers. )

Rambling about viral game info in regards to Harvey. )

...I'm prolly gonna ramble about apping Bruce and his possible in-game interaction (if I get in, since I expect to inevitably have competition) with his canonmates, quasi-canonmates and ttly new people next entry. SOMEONE HELP ME NO WAIT DON'T HELP ME SINCE I'M ENJOYING THIS ALL WAY TOO MUCH

First, though, need to read apps, plan out threads for Liquid, and post as Sylar. DON'T GET AMBITIOUS, ERIN.

Upon seeing The Dark Knight a second time, I've concluded that it really basically is my personal Batman wet dream realized in physical form. To-do list: Find Christopher Nolan and shake that motherfucker's hand.

Gonna see it on IMAX on Thursday. \o/ Until then, I should study for my Comm 1 final tomorrow and once finished with that, read apps since Court has thoroughly kicked my ass once again. Also gonna pray I can stop myself from making more TDK icons after this batch. Especially of Harveyface. D: Once finished with apps... gonna read all that viral game stuff and Long Halloween and Killing Joke and so forth to help supplement my Batman app in October.

I also ordered this poster. TEEEEEEEEE ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥!!!!!!!

AND I COULD SAY MORE BUT OH GOD I NEED TO SLEEP and then wake up in a few hours and help my mom sort legos and then head over to Andrew's to dogsit. :3

But yeah... this is by far my favorite superhero movie of all time. No, I do not say things like this impulsively. It had my two favorite supervillains, my favorite superhero, my favorite super-universe, and it handled it all with stunning, flying colors, developing all of them with so much depth in so little time. SERIOUSLY, MGS4 AND NOW THIS? IS IT MY BIRTHDAY OR SOMETHING?

....Also, is it just me, or was this movie like 983274984x gayer than Batman Begins? BECAUSE IT WAS AWESOME.
