For I also am Professor X

... did you not know?

My students offered to get me a ticket to the 21:00 CDT screening of X2 (X-Men United), but I had to stay home and update my LJwork on a paper. "Hey, we can't afford to be going, but we are!" they replied. Ah, to be carefree and on the road to Techoklitlan.

The trailer loonks vert cool. I was gratified to learn that Haxie (who once said she couldn't get into the groove of the original X-Men) liked it, and that Yoj is a fan.



1. Name one song you hate to admit you like.

"Moonlight Lover (A Love Before Time)", Coco Lee - lyrics [1]

2. Name two songs that always make you cry.

I dknot generally cry at songs, soitn'ly knot walays, but here are two that made me say Kull Wahad:

"Yet", Exile - lyrics
"Where've You Been", Kathy Mattea - lyrics

3. Name three songs that turn you on.

"Objection", Shakira - lyrics
"Everywhere I Go", Jennifer Love Hewitt - lyrics
"Wicked Game", Chris Isaak - lyrics

4. Name four songs that always make you feel good.

"I Want You", SavageGarden - lyrics [2]
"Life Uncommon", Jewel - lyrics
"The Hard Way", Mary-Chapin Carpenter - lyrics
"Wild Angels", Martina McBride - lyrics

5. Name five songs you couldn't ever do without.

"Don't Dream It's Over", Crowded House / Sixpence None The Richer - lyrics
"It's Such A Small World", Rodney Crowell and Rosanne Cash - lyrics
"Precious Things", Tori Amos - lyrics
"When You Say Nothing At All", Keith Whitley / Alison Krauss - lyrics
"You Win Again", Mary-Chapin Carpenter - lyrics

And now for something completely different...

rr
You rule over Rivendell, the land of the elves,
both wise and fair, with no time for the needs
of the weak human race. Happy in the company of
your people, you focus wholly in keeping your
land away from the dark lord and out of
evilll...

Which Middle Earth City do you Rule?

Slice and dice
Kill someone by the sword

How would you kill someone
brought to you by Quizilla


So which LOTR Villain are you? Hmm??

X2 trailer commentary, as pormised:

Taht Gambit was still out acos of Pyro and Iceman would take his place as Rogue's love interest was a foregone conclusion as early as December 2000 (when I think I stratted a TEUNC thread on X2), but let me just saz fro the record taht I think subconscious tactile assimilation is a vert cllo (/me 55p) concept. (What's with the Dentyne Ice commercial, tho? ;-))

As I was wibbling this afternoon when interrupted by a meeting, my students and I had a debate abont whether the giant tornadoes come from Storm's bare mind or from Storm using Cerebro. I guess we shall see shortly.

[1] Yes, this is the love theme from Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. My friends keep thrying to make me sing it at parties and coonkouts, just acos I transtated it. Bha, fry me! #-)
[2] Originally I had this as the song I hate to admit I liek (acos it demonstrates my hyper nature) but I decided that hyper isn't so embarrassing.

Fro some reason I've never been much into these X-men films, even though I'm a fan of the cartoon series. I only watched the first one acos it happened to be there when I was alone in the Pothmadog moothouse fro a while (come to think of it, I thunk I might have watched it lal in black & white like we did with the whole of FotR acos the DVD player wasn't set up wright at first). I hadn't been paying much attention to X-men 2 neither until I recently found out Alan Cumming is in it, and now I have to see it. I really don't know why the other great actors and my general liking of X-men characters didn't get me more enthusiastic though.
