Sky High

Uhh... hello.

I suddenly had the overwhelming urge to watch sky high and blog.
Before I start though, I would like to point out that it's all Kairis fault somehow. I can't exactly remember how but seeing as I got the stupid feeling of kgahugiagpdhineedtoseeitnow!!!! yesterday while chatting with her, I'm pretty sure she's the one who said something that made me go all ooh! Skyhighhhh...
Shame on you, Kairi, shame on you.

Ooooohkay I'mma just start off with saying that goddammit I love the beginning where the whole backstory is told in the form of like comics. socool 8D

Will Stronghold: [voiceover] You look at them and see the defenders of the world. All I see is my dad. Wearing tights.

Yeah I don't think I personally would survive that. Also, what is it with superheroes and their tights? Couldn't they just use, oh I don't know... pants? Geesh.

kiujdsigauiojuhaighujfgkjkdjogtiofd LAYLA!
Goddammit, I love her.
Seriously though, she has like the power to control plants and talk to animals or smth. And the manages to actually care aout stuff that are important.
I'm not saying I don't care about the environment, I mean obviously I know that it's a big problem and all but at the same time, I go to the store and I don't think twice about buying something wrapped in plastic or about what I need and don't really need.
I guess it's hard to really take something as a big problem if it's not affecting you. Yet.

Ooooooh, superdramatastic phonecall!
Also it's really amusing to see superheroes flying around, fighting crime, being all bamf all the while discussing their sons first day at school. Domestic superheroes...
More drama and exasperated acting! wooooooooooo.
and we're only 8 minutes 34 seconds in...
Seriously, every school should have one.
Busdriver: psh, freshmen...

As a little sidenote, the lead character Will Stronghold is played by Michael Angarano
Who started his career when he was 12 years old, then when he was 15 played a character who was 12 and then when he was 17 he took this role where his charcter Will is 14.
Maybe when he's 30 he'll finally get to play a 17-year old character...

Anyhow, back to the movie.
Ohlook this is the moment when we finally (little more than 10 minutes in) find out that layla has a major crush on Will.

The students make it to the school, gaze around with mouths wide open, we see the cool students, the cheerleaders (or in this case a cheerleader who can make multiple copies of herself. How selfish, why isn't anyone else on the team?) and of course the bullies.

Is it a suprise to anyone that that stretchy bully dude is one of my favourite characters?
The striped one, in case you haven't seen the movie for some reason.

Ohlook, a hot female character shows up out of nowhere and Will instantly falls in love. MUST BE A BAD CHICK.
Heeeelllloooo, ascended headmaster person.
*ahem* principle Powers...
OHMYGOD there is a system where they sort you into cliques by your powers and you can either end up as a hero or a loser. I mean hero support.
How... original.
Coach Boomer, the stereotypical bully PE teacher.
Coooooool. 8)

I take some sadistic enjoyment in this.
"Alright, we'll pick it up again right after lunch. Starting with... you" *pointing at Will*
The classic situation where you finally have to show the entire class that ohai you're a loser and have no powers. I WONDER WHAT HAPPENS NEXT...
And now... the dark and superduper dramatic apparently-a-bad-guy who has some chicken to pluck with our charming lead character
And the whole reason I watch this movie.
Dark, dramatic, has a tear-inducing backstory involving his supervillain dad... All you have ever wanted in a character. trufax.
Oh and his name is Warren Peace. Obviously.
The villain-y chick flirts, the lead makes a fool of himself because obviously when talking to a girl it's hard to actually focus on anything and shit. Happens to me /alllll/ the time.
uhh Layla is jealous, Will is oblivious... The usual.
Oh and Warren nearly crashes into Will and looks super intimidating in the process. Me likey.
Will gets trashed around and ifnally admits that he has no powers. Blimey.
Crazy old doctor person with X-ray vision... Sort of scary actually.
Wills parents finally introduce him to the supersecret lair where they keep all their superhoero stuffs, before Will gets a change to enter his father mentiones that will must never ever bring anyone into the secret sanctum and Will promises not to. So obviously we all now know that the villan-y chick ends up in there, making out with Will at some point.
And the robot eye that Mr.daddysuperhero won in the battle at the very beginning of the episode, inexplicably starts itself up, unnoticed. Colour me shocked and suprised.
Will climbs onto the roof and layla grows a tree to get herself up there aswell. AWESOME, Y/Y?

ohyeah, the weirdo teacher.
"The All-American Boy!! Ofcourse nowadays, I just go by Mr. Boy."

OOHOOOHOOH, the awesome chemistry teacher, Mr. Medulla.

Every school should have one. Srsly.
oooh look Will accindentally dropped his food tray in close proximity of the ebil arch nemesis dude, who for some reason completely exploded and decided to start throwing fireballs at Will, who suddenly finds out that WOW he can both fly like his mommy and be superduper strong like his daddy.

I have this thing with fire where I fear it like... well fire and yet think it's the awesomest thing ever.
Actually that's probably not the uncommon. You know, fear and honour the shit you don't understand and so on. Besides it's hot. Fire I mean.
CG sucks but the awesome remains.
And the awesome is defeated by a fire extinguisher. Goddammit.
That principle woman is wearing shoes that are atleast twice her body lenght. Wow.
Am I the only one finding that weird?
[Will and Warren are in the Detention Room for fighting.]
Will: Look, whatever happened with our dads, it has nothing to do with us. [extends a hand for shaking] What do you say?
Warren: I say, if you ever cross me again, I'll roast you alive.

The hero gets transfered into the his respectful class now that his worth something to the school and gets all angsty over it. Goddammit boy, have a sense of adventure or something.
And the mad teacher pairs Will with his villain-y crush chick. Again, what a suprise.
Well someone has fun PE classes. Villains vs heroes, the heroes have to save a dummy suspended over some lovely blades before the dunny reaches them. Of course Will gets paired off with Warren.
Awesomeneww ensues and, as everyone but the blind and mute lady at the back has already guessed, they win. "No freshman has ever won save the citizen before!" which ofcourse isn't an obsticle for our man Will. Obviously.
I also love the remark that two teachers make on the sideline at the beginning of the scene: "Remember when we used real citizens? oh hehe, yeah, yeah..."
Oh and in the process he also saves Warren.
Evil chick shows up at Wills place, making his head spin around and forget everything about the date with Layla who amizingly enough runs into Warren who in his off time is a waiter at a chinese restaurant. He then turns out to be a great person and a psychologist. And he speaks chinese. Suprised, yes?
meh. boringboringboring.
skipping ahead to the interessting parts now.
Ohlook, whaddayaknow, Will ends up snogging the evil chick in the supersecret lair that noone except the Stronghold family are supposed to enter. Ever.
And then the chick proceeds to steal sume superawesome weapon.
And of course nobody notices.
Will sees evil chicks real colours and shit, dumps her, teenage drama ensues..
The waitress/firedude/psychologist Warren then goes on to fix everyones love life by being awesome. And just not giving a fuck.
Oh and he has a ponytail.
And now suddenly, out of nowhere, Will realizez that the weird chick in his parents' yearbook is NO OTHER THAN HIS BELOVED VILLAINCHICK and on one of the pictures she's actually holding the superweapon she later stole.
I mean it's not like his parent's haven't had that yearbook and that weapon for ages now . . .
Cut to the homecoming dance where Sweet and lovely Gwen suddenly turns into the Royal Pain. Literally.
Gwen: That's right. Royal Pain wasn't my mother. Royal Pain is ME!
Will: Oh my God, I made out with an old lady.

The she zaps everyone with her gun thingy, turning heroes into babies, then comes will who then saves the night, everyone gets turned back and woohoo, the movie is finally over.
And no, I can't be bothered to watch the end to bring to you more stills. I also have a distinct feeling that you are happier about that than you should be.
Anyway that concludes that weirdly awesome movie and if you never want me to do this movieblogging thing again let me know and I'll happily oblige.
All in all this post became more of a Steven Strait appreciation post, judging by the pictures but you better get used to it. I have decided to do an "Why you should watch The Covenant, like right now." and seeing as he's the lead... Well many pictures to come.

P.S: slow computers... Sowwy? :3
Will: [voiceover] So in the end, my girlfriend became my arch-enemy, my arch-enemy became my best friend, and my best friend became my girlfriend. But, hey — that's high school.

Umm.. Quotes from Wikiquote, Pictures from google picture search and the movie plus some clips from youtube because I'm a lazy git.

As far as TV series go, I have watched and currently watch several, for I prefer them over movies as I can keep on watching. They don't end abruptly leaving me to wonder what the fuck is going to happen next?
Anyway, I have already discussed two that I really really like (Dr who and Stargate) But there is another show that I would like to discuss


While the other two posts have been the reasons why you should totally watch those shows, this is more like a Why This Show Should Never Have Aired. And I'm not looking to offend any fans, I'm just bringing to you my petty thoughts on the topic.
See the basic plot of Dexter is this guy who is a psychopath, works in FBI or something and in his free time kills peopl. Basically he is a serial killer. But here's the twist: He only kills those who he has deemed evil or who have done some serious crimes.
Which is suddenly supposed to make it all better?
Before anyone is going to bitch about anything, I will tell you that I have seen two and a half seasons, I think. I have seasons 1-4 on DVD but I just can't bring myself to actually watch the rest, for I can no longer justify it to myself. This guy kills people and the whole show makes it look normal, just like another day at the office.
And I know, I know. It's just a TV show, nothing to freak out about. If I don't like it I can just switch the channel or close the window and go on tumblr. Or you know - blogger.
But still I feel like ranting today and you are being subjected to it. So suck it.
Anyway, my point is that this show makes it looks like it's somehow okay to kill someone if you feel the need to and that someone is a criminal. And you know, if you do it right, you will probably get away with it.
That's not okay! Again, this may be just a movie but there are people out there who fall into the traps of television and can no longer tell which is real life and which is fantasy. There may be poeple out thre who watch that and for some reason identify with the lead character. There may be kids out there who just want to "feel what Dexter feels" for the show describes the feeling of killing as something amazing.
And even if those people do it and are caught, and by god I hope they would at least get caught, there are still human lives lost. And I get it, there are human lives lost all the time, but why don't we ever see that show focusing on the victims families? Most of the time even the cruellest criminals have some kind of homes, parents, maybe even sisters and brothers. We never see that there are people left behind, people in grief because someone close to them has died.
Every human life is valuable. Why don't we ever see that show pointing that out?
From wikipedia I got this quote:
CBS added parental advisory notices to its broadcast promotions, and ultimately rated Dexter TV-14 for broadcast. The show premiered on February 17, 2008, edited primarily for language and scenes containing sex or the dismemberment of live victims.

My god. Dismemberment of live victims? And we really call this show okay to watch for ayone under 79 who still has their eyesight and doesn't have to wear a hearing aid?
We keep going on and on about how there is so much violence in cartoons and stuff that kids watch that are mostly centered on the good guy catching the bad guy? I'm not saying that those cartoons are okay either but this show is just plain wrong!
I guess in the end it is still up to everyone individually, if they want to watch it but just keep the stuff you read in mind while doing it.

Oh, right to sort of prove my point or to make it clearer that there are already three cases in witch the tv show is believed to be indirectly or directly the result of someone killing someone.

On December 3, 2008, Twitchell pleaded not guilty to the charge of first-degree murder of 38-year-old John Altinger, whose body is still missing. Twitchell filmed footage for a production of House of Cards (entirely unrelated to the British production of the same name), a horror-romance similar in tone to Dexter, in which he allegedly murdered Altinger. Det. Mark Anstey of the Edmonton Police Service was quoted as saying, "We have a lot of information to suggest he definitely idolizes Dexter." In the summer of 2008, Twitchell had posted a series of ominous Facebook statuses in which he "believed he had a lot in common with Dexter Morgan".

In November 2009, Andrew Conley, 17, was arrested in Rising Sun, Indiana, in connection with the death of his 10-year-old brother, Conner. In an affidavit filed in Ohio County court, police said that Andrew told investigators that he identified with the character. "Andrew stated that he watches a show called 'Dexter' on Showtime, about a serial killer," prosecutors said in an affidavit. "He stated, 'I feel just like him.'" Conley is now serving life imprisonment without the possibility of parole.

On 3 February 2010, Faiza Ashraf was killed by Håvard Nyfløt in the area of Solli near Asker, Norway. Håvard Nyfløt commented that he was inspired by the TV series.

just a link

by god you need to read this

and by extention this

so. much. amusing.

In Estonia, there are:
  • 2 000 000 cars (mostly '81 Toyota Corollas, '79 Datsuns and '71 Ladas.),
  • 1 500 000 cell phones,
  • 1 000 000 PCs (usually with quad-processor systems based on 80386 or 80486 CPU-s) and 9 Macs,
  • 500 999 freezers,
  • 200 000 animals (cats, dogs and sheep),
  • 350 banks or credit institutions,
  • 15 state organizations, and
  • about 3 and a half public schools

...connected to the Internet.

...That's why in 1940 Estonia conquered Soviet Union and occupied in until for fifty years.

...The king of Estonia is Edgar Savisaar (a.k.a Savipäts, ninasarvik, Savi, Rico Suave, Sarvik...

As of October, 2005, Savisaar was officially appointed the national hero of Estonia under the name of Kohuke The Great.

The vice president of Estonia is Homer Simpson, well known for his ambitions to bring about world peace.

I wish people would stop telling me I'm not good enough. I wish people would stop telling me I'm not fast enough, strong enough, smart enough... I wish we could all snap out of this very estonian-like attitude of "we're just not fucking good enough and don't you even dare think otherwise."
I live in a small town. A small town where nothing ever changes. Everything has come to a full stop and everyone expects it to stay that way. But you see, I have dreams. I have dreams of actually going somewhere with my life, actually doing something. Getting out. And yet, nobody believes that I could possibly achieve that.
I have heard my mother tell me, countless times since telling her that I'm about to switch schools, how much easier it would be to stay in my old school. How much harder it's going to get and how my grades will drop. How I'm not going to make it. And if I tell her to stop telling me off, to stop bringing down my self-esteem, it's already fucking low enough, she just denies it. I can still hear it though, ringing in my ears. She said it. And she will say it again. Why? Because change in this town is something bad.
My home town is mostly filled with old people. Everyone who is young and wants to go to the university, must move out to Tartu or Tallinn. And then they are encouraged to come back. To work as someone invisible, someone with no future because that's how it has been for decades in here.
We are forced to think that this town is our future, that we have to come back because of some elusive pride everyone else seems to have. And adapt into the same lifestyles as everyone else. Living in a bubble, unable to understand that the world is changing. Unable to accept that people are different and it's something to be cherished, not hated. Living up to their necks in hatred, racism, phobias and fear.
It is for some reason the general consensus, that we are just not good enough. That we are lower. Maybe it's an isolation thing, maybe some remnant of the soviet-era belief system or perhaps a memory of our ancestors in slavery, brewing away at the back of our heads, making us unable to believe in ourselves. It is for some reason believed that when it comes to the rest of the world, they are better and we could never achieve their greatness and you know what? Trying would be just pointless so we may as well give up.
And it's time we, as the new generation, stop thinking like that. We can do it.
We can fucking do it!
We are not lower, we do not give up. We are brilliant and we can achieve anything we want, because we have the means and we have the brains.
And yes, it's going to be hard, it's going to be dissappointing and it's going to be painful. But that's just life. Nothing is ever easy and the flower may look ugly as ever, but it will smell sweeter than anything you have smelled before. All we have to do is keep going. Push ourselves through the barriers, and dream big. We are all equal, we can all do whatever we set our minds to if we just try hard enough. And would you stop listening to them haters? Geesh, girl, they know nuffin. Nuffin at all.
The world is ours and we can do whatever the hell we want with it. You just watch us.


Without a dream you'll not get anywhere.

My blog visits

So after like a year I finally discovered that my blog has some stats too and I found some pretty interesting things. Like the keywords people have searched for in google to find my blog.

Obviosuly there's a bunch of keywords that were probably used to search specifically for me, like kellytalv, kelly talv, kellytalv blog and kellytalv every thing
The kellytalv.hots sort of disturbs me.
Also how did someone find my blog by typing in estonia I have no idea. Or moskva esmaspäevad sinised for that matter.

Apparently my most viewed post is Movie review-ish thing: Twilight Eclipse. Not too hard to guess how that was found or why. I guess all the people coming here thinking that someone has written a movie review were deeply dissappointed.
that is followed by another random meme of doom. And then *clingz* Again, no idea why or how it was found.

In total my blog has had 3,061 pageviews.
Pageview breakdown by countries is as follows:
Thanks to everyone who has actually taken the time to read at least something from this lil blog of mine and don't be afraid to comment? :D

Ooh also, I love this song:


Stephen Fry: [discussing rainbows] In Estonia they believe that if you point at a rainbow, your finger will fall off.
Alan Davies: Oh, for God's sake.
Stephen Fry: I know.
Alan Davies: Estonians aren't stupid people, are they?
Stephen Fry: They're not.
Sean Lock: [holding up his fists] They're very stumpy, though.

It's 2011!! Still!

So I was scrolling through my old posts. Starting from last Januray and found a post of all the things I was amazed about and felt the need to comment now, even though I'm about a month late but whatever. Here it is.
The original post was January 4, 2010.

I'm amazed at myself. I really am. For many reasons. First of all I'm amazed that in four days I have made four blog posts.

It is quite obvious that when I started this little, project shall I call it, I was way more willing to post I guess. Or y'know, had more time. Of course back then I did believe this to be like my usual project doings: couple of months tops and then I get bored. Somehow though, I went all the way up to 80 posts in 2010. Let's see if I can keep up the pace in 2011.

Third of all I'm amazed that I have actually made plans for tomorrow. Sleepover at Kadis. So there is hope for me yet.

Well that hasn't changed. I mean the no life part. I did today go to this multymedia theatre thingymabob but going out once hardly counts as a life.

I'm also amazed that I survived the New Years Eve and Christmas.

Well, past me, you will have a wonderful Christmas in 2011. I am amazed though that I survived New Years this year. I guess it's sort of a tradition to try and drown yourself in a glass of kids' champagne and hope to achieve some sort of happy state thanks to the sugar.

I'm amazed that it's 2010 already. Seriously though, what happened to the past 10 years?

Dude, 2011, wat? Bambs and I were listening to music from her phone and some old track came up from the eighties. And that was like, 30 years ago! wtf?

I'm amazed that I'm in 8th grade. I made it past kindergarden? Seriously?

DD: graduation, exams, changing schools... all the good stuff is yet to come I guess...

I'm also amazed that I have started listening to metal/rock/hard rock music and wearing dark colours

Heh... that really hasn't changed in a year. My music consumption now has diminished and I've moved back to some form of pop but rock still dominates my MP3 and the rest is just really weird songs from artists nobody knows. Or really old songs.

I'm utterly amazed that I have been chatting on EESTI boards for 6 months now and I haven't pissed anyone off yet. I haven't right?

Holy mother of stargate. one and a half years now... Now /that's/ something I thought I wouldn't see.
Of course it's really not what it used to be (for like a month or so when we started) but hey, we keep in touch.

I'm amazed that I haven't got glasses yet. I sit behind the computer screen for 6+ hours every day (haha I wish, it's probably more like 8+) . But that is probably only because I haven't been to a doctor to check my vision since last spring.

That spring, almost two years ago is still the last time I had my vision checked but honestly I continue to see wayyy better than some certain people I know...
But my computer time continues to be 8+
Or well, now maybe less seeing as I have more lessons and school lasts longer.

As for the rest of my blog in 2010, I don't doodle on my maths notebooks anymore. ot as much, anyway because maths lessons tend to be more interesting if you actually have something to do and you understand the subject.

I miss ski camp, I wish it would happen once a year, every year. Was amazing. I still haven't gone skiing this year, though.

I sort of liked the quotes at the bottom of the pages, maybe I should start this thing up again. Although it was sort of a pain to search for them.

Music to go with posts is always good, it makes you remember certain stuff. To read the post and listen to the song or watch the video and immediately remember exactly what was going through your head at that moment.... it's bliss.

My room is still a mess but I cotinue to keep my books carefully filed away. Books tend to be more important than trivial things, like food and breathable air.

That story I was supposed to type up in march, 2010? Lol.

I still procrastinate a lot. I still leave things undone and then complain when it ends badly. it's sort of what I do. But hey, I haven't fallen into that great deep pit of darkness I was in last year around this time (or well in march but I'm hoping to steer clear of that this year). Yet.
Like for example, tomorrow I have a maths test. And I just cant bring myself to study. And then this russian thing that I can't do and I'm screwed if she asks me. BUT OHWELL. My sanity gets me lots farer (wat?) than knowing what a tap is in russian (It's rakovina by the way. I think)

Katja is still cute and Enter the Ninja is still the creepiest song ever.

I proudly say I don't play FarmVille anymore. Or go on facebook for that matter. Only to wish people happy birthday occasioanlly and post some things I feel the world (or rather my list of contacts) needs to know.

I'm still obsessed with stargate and dr who. And sanctuary and ncis and all those others.

I wish I could pwn something this year aswell. With me to all the olympiads has been Kati who just keeps going in, coming back saying all ohgosh I did so bad I'm going to lose and then she's like second or something and I'm sixth. fuuuuu...


Ella is still muymuy cute.

Stargate is still the coolest thing ever. Since y'know sliced bread.

Dr who is still awesumesauce and new season should start very soon. YAY!

I still think I look awesome with a pen drawn 'stach. And i'd still date myself. Cause, y'know I'm still awesome.

I continue to suck at arts.

Citrus fruits are still superawesome. Mom also discovered Pomelos so now we eat those like bread or something.

I love my blog. For several years now when I look back, I remember nothing for nothing ever really happened but now, now I have the chance to go back, relive the moments in pretty good clarity. So what I'm saying is that I'm not likely to end this thing any time soon. And y'know if I'm too slow on posting feel free to poke me.
