“The unhappy results which may follow from incompetent drafting may be, in the case of an instrument held to impose a trust, that it is so much waste-paper, whereas in the case of an instrument differing perhaps on the face of it very little from the invalid trust instrument a good gift of a power to benefit objects may emerge. Thus it is said that in order to avoid fine distinctions the test should be the same for both.”
Hello there. Am I missing something here? Who starts a freaking judgment by saying “incompetent drafting leads to wasted paper so we will just make the test the same”?!?!?!
In school on a Saturday when the weather outside is bright and chirpy. Need a haircut. (And a life.)
Okay I know how everyone is damn sick of all the random Japanese shit here…
But I am freaking OBSESSED with this guy. OMG.

hide memorial summit on his death anniversary!
X Japan is reuniting without hide next week to hold 3-4 concerts. WHAT THE HELL. SERIOUSLY.
Too bad I have an Equity paper the same day. :( So many things to do in Japan.
Watched Crows Zero over the last weekend. Can’t believe it’s already Wednesday and I have so much work to do. Anyway it was pretty good, although I admit I’m biased because I so totally went to watch it because of the two male leads. It reaffirms what Isaac said to me the other day about Oguri Shun – which is that he manages to be convincing in any role he plays. Even here, as a high-school gang boy. Not like in Gokusen; more intense. I literally saw his mouth twitch in rage for an agonizingly long period of time before he let loose a roar and his eyes burn. Anyway like I said, maybe I’m biased, but he is a very good actor. Who plays a deaf boy, a gangster, and Hanazawa Rui (花沢 類) so convincingly all at one go? (Don’t forget Hana Kimi!) In contrast, Yamada Takayuki – who is also a very good actor, in very diverse roles – doesn’t convince me that much. Maybe it’s because of his baby face.
The soundtrack was good though, and so was the directing, by Takashi Miike. I hadn’t heard of him before this movie but I like his style so I’ll probably check out more of his stuff. J didn’t like the choppy cinematography used for the landscape, but I think it worked pretty well. And there was judicious use of colour vs. black and white. I liked that a lot. That said, it is a manga adaptation after all, so there are loads of funny and stupid parts. I didn’t get the crow reference till the last part, and then it all became clear.
It’s probably going to be on limited run, so go watch it soon!
It’s such a refreshing change not to see Caucasians on the big screen. -_-
I am annoyed that Drew & Napier just replied me after taking so bloody long…
Err. Cos you know like how I have not been sleeping for the past few days and staying in school till 2am to do my stupid public law assignment. Naturally once it was over I reverted to doing completely time-wasting things.
Like posting pictures.
Oh and I half-forgot there was Equity today.
