i have really mixed feelings about it. granted, it's only a rumor, and clearly he's too old for the role anyway. but -- what if? my husband was appalled at the notion: "no, no nono no! bad idea!" why? "he'll overdo it. he always does. L is very subtle."
i have to admit he is right.
the best news is that when at the earliest stages hollywood was forcing the director (shane black) to americanize the film by softening it and making it more "mass appeal" -- which included dispensing with the shinigami -- the director adamantly refused to do so.
still, this will inevitable be mostly western film. zac efron is rumored to be cast as light yagami. as for L... an american actor?
i've been trying to imagine what it would look like. world's top detective, enigmatic L. quirky, socially awkward, nerdy, quiet sugarholic who always sits with his knees drawn up to his chest, constantly eats sweets without gaining an ounce of weight and never sleeps. in live action films, kenichi matsuyama portrayed him so perfectly that he might have set the bar too high for anyone else. with all respect to mr. depp, it seems a daunting if not completely impossible to surpass matsuken in this role. the only advantage i see is that with j.d. cast in this film it would bring new, larger audiences in, possibly popularizing the original death note more. but is it worth it?

Current Music: The Church - She Never Said

Now, this is purely accidental. I didn't mean to post. I was just listening to some music. OK, let's lay it out clear - I was obsessively, and I mean obsessively - looks like Last.fm clocked in 7 replays - listening to She's Lost Control. So I typed "Joy Division" into the LJ search window to see if any communities/users/comments would come up... lo and behold, the screen nearly blacked out, and the most obnoxious video ad popped up, with "you'll return to your LiveJournal experience after this" and fucking disgusting loud noise (music?) completely drowning out Joy Division.
I don't remember cursing like this in a long time. I closed the whole damn window, tabs and all, and sat there seething for a while. My "LJ experience" just has been brutally raped, mood completely shattered. I had to get a drink, which is why I was able to calm down enough to type... and replay the song. But as it often goes with the right moments and moods, some things are lost irreversibly, and it's just not the same, something is gone... you know?

OMG has it been really no posts since April? Wow I suck at blogs.
So I did move to San Diego. For a month. In the hindsight, it was like running away from problems instead of solving them.

Wow, California license is way more impressive than what the state of Arizona issued 2 years ago - that one is just a piece of paper, like the social security card.
