amazing soundtracks

Published April 12, 2012 by laurrx

i’m a huge fan of movies, and when i’m rummaging through my collection of DVDs looking for one to watch i’ll start singing a song from it, or say to myself “what a freaking amazing soundtrack!”. and whenever i’m shuffling through my ipod every second or third song is from a movie or a TV show.

here are my top 10 favourite soundtracks (not in order)

10 things i hate about you
this CD was the soundtrack to my Florida holiday 2006 or something. every song was so spot on for the moment, and every song is amazing! my favourite song was probably Letters to Cleo – Cruel To Be Kind, and it’s so cute ’cause Patrick gets them to sing it for Kat, for it all to be ruined. Best scene of the whole movie, i think! i love Semisonic – FNT when they’re paintballing, cos they kiss at the end of that scene and it fits in far too well!!
the soundtrack list is right here

project X
just seen this movie quite recently and every song that came on, my friend and me would whisper to each other “what a tune!!!” or “love this song”. it’s such an immense soundtrack, i downloaded it the day after i went to see it. my favourite is kid cudi – pursuit of happiness steve aoki remix. it’s the one that was played in the advert that was constantly played on E4 adverts that were promoting the movie, and i just wanted the song to keep playing!
here’s a link to the list here

tangled
forgot how good the songs were in this until i watched it just yesterday, i was prancing about the house singing along to all the songs. and i have a clear favourite and it’s when will my heart begin! i love Mandy Moore’s voice so much, and this song is really funny, when shes hanging around the house doing all this stuff and painting and then talking about the chinese lanterns!!! i love it, i love it, i love it!

enchanted
i also watched this yesterday and sang the songs word for word. when i got out of hospital five years ago, this had been delivered to the house (along with Pump it up the exercise DVD which gathers dust in my cupboard now…). i watched it loads and the songs are so funny. i love the way enchanted really takes the mickey out of all disney movies. favourite – that’s how you know, when they’re all dancing about the park. it’s absolutely hysterical. there’s really only like 3 or 4 songs that are actually sung, but the music is even good!!

mary  poppins
i know i’m such a Disney freak, but after this there’s no more! for a couple of weeks when i was a kid i spent a few weeks in hospital and every day i watched mary poppins, whenever i sit and watch it i’ll talk along with the characters like a proper 5 year old. supercaligragilisticexpialidocious is my ultimate favourite disney song never mind my favourite mary poppins song! also i love jolly holiday with mary and i love to laugh! amazing, and it really all takes me back to when i was younger!

wizard of oz
this movie is one of my total cheer up films, but i always fast forward to when it goes to colour – i hate non colour movies.  i love the scarecrow, tinman and lion’s song “if i only had a brain/heart/the nerve”. i absolutely adore the lion, and the way he says “noive”. and then also “over the rainbow”, what an amazing song!

(500) days of summer
as much as this movie irritated me ’cause they never get together (’cause summer was a bitch), the songs in it were really good. i loved the genre of the soundtrack, the songs were all so relaxing, and really nice. they went with the movie and what was really happening in the movie. i feel like the songs are so ironic, they’re all so cheery and happy sounding, that it isn’t really clear that they won’t be together forever.
get them here

a walk to remember
listening to this soundtrack never fails to bring  tear to my eye. they just remind me of one of the saddest movies i’ve ever watched. and like i said before i love mandy moore and i love that she sings in it, the song is amazing. my favourite song in this is mandy moore and jonathon foreman – someday we’ll know. its such a fab song, and it’s played when Landon is doing amazing things for Jamie and it’s such an amazing music scene!

How To De-Clutter….

Published October 10, 2011 by laurrx

…??

No, this is not a “how-to” as to be honest i have NO idea how to de-clutter. My friends actually HATE my room, and always have something to say about it.

20111010-125335.jpg

it is awful. i cannot see the top of drawers because of all the make up and DVDs and clutter on it. the dvds are there mainly because i have FAR too many and not enough space in my DVD drawer. I am also a hoarder…look at my mirror. i keep tickets, invitations, labels off clothes, pictures, cards and even a coaster! the tall drawers on the left? full of CRAP. well maybe not ALL crap, but the second drawer and the bottom drawer are full of nothing. completely useless nothingness.

I also have THIS.

20111010-133941.jpg this is a complete waste of space and i always feel (and my mum always points out) that i need it. the books (which i have just got from Linda, who was cleaning out her cupboard for moving) will just be going back to the cupboard in that room when i move next door. the cupcake will be going somewhere else and so will the terramundy. All the magazines will be added to my pile of Elle mags in the corner (which icant get into because theres things on top of them – NO ROOM!). and my laptop usually sits at the top.

Blar, blar, blar!

Anyhoo! So i googled “how to organise a room” and “my room is really small i dont know how to organise” (TIP for right now: GOOGLE EVERYTHING.) this has been my answer to everything these days! i had my donut in my hair the other day and someone in work asked me how i done it. so i didnt have the time to take it all out and show them (because i am always late for work…) so i tried and it’s hard to explain. So in the end i said “google it”. also if i am watching  a movie and dont know who an actor/actress is me and Linda are like “IMDB it!”. the internet has everything…

apart from how to organise or somethings like “hoarders anonymous”. so i need a book…”organising for dummies” – OMG just had the best idea…is there a “…for dummies” website…

http://www.dummies.com

new favourite website!!!

(ewe, i just looked outside and its raining…)

if i find ANY good website that ha good tips on organisation and the such, i’ll share. but for now, i’ll deal with my mess and clutter and everyone else will have to.

so long.
