I went back to my high school

On the 20th, when I had only one period of school, I went back to my high school, saw some of my teachers and had a lunch in the school cafeteria. Going back there was so great, peaceful and I could forget that now you're in college worrying about your career or whatever.

I miss my school.

Vincent

I don’t own this video.

Vincent is the very first stop animation written and directed by Tim Burton while he was working for Disney. The film was inspired by Vincent Pierce, who actually narrated the short animation.

This is an original Tim Burton film with his light hearted romantic films including a lovely gothic style of him. Spending 6 minutes on this short animation would not go to waste. I promise.

Enjoy,

Anu Harchu

I got a question

Video was filmed by my little sister with a tripod.

Dear avid readers of Girl with a Mug,

As mentioned in the video, I had this idea that I could do Alex Day’s Alex Reads Twilight’s Mongolian version just now.

So let me know if you want to see a series of videos of Anu Reads Twilight in Mongolian with her sister in the comment section down below.

Don’t think that I’ve put much thought into it, so don’t think that I will be discouraged if the readers vote against the notion.

Enjoy,

Anu Harchu

Song of the Day: Amber Riley – Spotlight

I don’t own this video.

I’ve been listening to this clip on and off since it was released on GleeOnFox YouTube channel as part of an early teaser for the 3rd episode of Season 3, Asian F.

You got to admit this song was a great performance and reflects a lot of emotional background in anyone.

Enjoy!

Face Book

20111007_195I’ve just created a new photo album on my Facebook profile, which I barely do. This album will be literally a book of faces.

Don’t get surprised if you notice me taking your photo for no reason and finding it either tagged or untagged on this album. It will be included in my personal photo collection of faces.

You can see the album, if we are friends on Facebook.

Find the album here.

Enjoy the weekends,

A Minute with the Pigeons beside the Gandan Temple

Dear Readers,

Today was a day of free wandering, pure wandering. I’ve just walked around as if there was nothing more important in this world even it was cold.

Call me a time-wasting fool, but I actually enjoyed it and had a lot of time reflecting on the things I usually don’t consider, which I am not ready to reveal on my blog yet.

P.S. The afternoon and the evening was marvelous thanks to Nomuna, Sodoo and Jack Jack.

Cowboys & Aliens

cowboys-and-aliens-new-posterLast night, I watched Cowboys & Aliens starring Daniel Craig, Harrison Ford and Olivia Wilde released in 2011.

The film follows a group of cowboys mining gold in the wild west who encounter mischievous creatures that they first considered to be demons even if for a joke.

Jake (Daniel Craig) wakes up in the deserted land with a weird wrist bracelet like device whose purpose he doesn’t know and seems to not remember how he got it on him in the first place. He gets to the nearest town depending on the gold resources and strange things start to happen from the first night.

Unknown creatures attack the village with unknown flying mechanism and light weapon. Now they have to find why they are here, what they want and most importantly how to make them go away.

The overall storyline was pretty easy to predict, though the performance of the actors were marvelous despite the western and science-fiction angle sucked a little bit. Maybe not little bit, big.

I wouldn’t vouch for the film’s greatness. But if you’d like to see a bunch of cool actors (and actresses) in a single film, definitely go and watch it.

Where is Anu’s mom?

20111012_280

My uncles (I don’t have blood related aunts) have always told me that I was kinda slow, and I always referred to myself in third person. Guess it was since childhood. Whenever I am looking for my mother I would call “Where is Anu’s mom?” with a lazy move of my neck.

Yeah, I know I look soooo spoiled in this picture of mine when I was about 3 or 4 years old. It’s because I was a spoiled kid, maybe still I am.

Raise your hands all those mama’s little girls! You won’t be that way forever. Love your moms while you can.

I love you mom…

Be Happy…

20111010_260To whom I want to be…

I hope you have achieved what is needed and as well as what you wanted in life by now, whenever that is. But most of all, I hope you are happy, not comparatively happy, but insanely happy without going insane. Don’t forget that goal in life isn’t only success, but there should be satisfaction as well.

Be and live your life at its fullest.

Thoughts on the First Meeting of SMCU

Okay, this time I DO own this video.

I am sorry if the words are harsh. But the Social Media Club: Ulaanbaatar’s First Meeting was nothing I’d expected it to be. What I had in my mind was that it would be all those free minded young people with fresh ideas and no hard feelings. But what it was that bunch of angry and stressed guys with ties searching for a way to release that bad energy with anti-feminist tendency.

I totally understand it wasn’t how the organizers wanted it to be and it was just a few of the guests. But it doesn’t change the fact that it bored and annoyed me resulting in leaving early.

Better luck in the next meeting.

Song of the Day: Charlie McDonnell – This is Me

I don’t own this video or the song.
I have no doubt that any avid YouTuber would already know Charlie McDonnell a.k.a. CoolLike (it’s also his twitter username) by now. He has released his solo album “This is Me” about 10 months ago, I think; and I had the digital version of this album for ages.

Today my music player shuffled to one of his song in the album which I forgot all the lyrics and the tunes to almost every song, and I loooooved it. I had to track down the exact one later and here it is. Enjoy!

You’re an awesome Nerd Fighter!

George W. Bush: Address to Congress Following the Attacks of 9/11

I don’t own this video.

In my university, I take this class called “Орчуулгын дадал” – Interpretation Skills. For the assignment of this class we get to translate the significant and influential speeches in the history of time (well, the history of America). As the first assignment we got to translate ex-president George Bush’s speech to the Congress on September 20th, 2001 following the attack of September 11th.

Here is the my translation of the speech from English to Mongolian. Please use it to your need and make sure you cite my name and site if you use it for public display.

STICKAID 2011

imagingSo, every year there is this fundraising 24-hour vlog featuring different public figures, mostly YouTubers, for UNICEF, I think, called StickAid hosted by Myles Dyer. This year it’s going to be happening between Oct. 1st 12:00 PM and Oct. 2nd 12:00 PM GMT. (Oct. 8:00 PM and Oct. 2nd 8:00 PM in Ulaanbaatar)

I don’t yet know about the co-hosts today but I know that Fleur de Force and Charlie McDonnell will be there during the 24 hours. What you can do is that you can watch the vlog and let the others know about it, and if you want to, you can donate as well. Go to www.stickam.com/blade376
