Dinner conversation  
I was home for this weekend (er, to attend Charter prom...because Henry asked me...it was actually a lot of fun XD) and tonight we went to a family friend's house to celebrate my dad's birthday and the birthdays of two of my parents' friends.

One person there was my mom's friend Cosimo, who's going to be in the Avatar movie. He's playing one of the firebenders, and we got to hear a little bit about the filming they're doing in Philadelphia.

Apparently the costume designer is the same person who did Harry Potter? He said that the waterbenders' (I think) costumes were really wintery and reminded him of the Harry Potter costumes. He also said that one day they had pyrotechnics, parts of the set on fire, and flying all in one shoot. XD And that it's really annoying to do fight scenes in fake snow.

The funniest part was that they'd given him a really silly looking haircut. He has really curly hair, and they'd cut it short on the sides but left it pretty long on top so he just had curls like piled on top of his head. XD;; But apparently they wear some sort of "ninja do-rag" (in Cosimo's words) most of the time and there was only like one scene where his hair was even showing.

Also he got to eat lunch to Dev Patel! Apparently he's really nice, and very British.


There was also a very interesting debate about the Israeli/Palestinian conflict between two of my mom's Israeli friends, but I really can't re-create the scene of Israelis yelling at each other in an lj post. XD;;; But I have new respect for one of them, who lived a good portion of her life in Israel and yet very clearly questioned whether a Jewish state should even exist.


And I was told about the fucking weirdest series of videos ever: Green Porno. They're short videos about various bugs' mating habits. Really weird and really hilarious.

Cool! As opposed as I am to the Avatar movie in general, it's interesting to hear this sort of stuff!

Yeah, Green Porno is super weird.
