I remember the first time I saw Glee back in 2009 like it was yesterday. It was on Star World Asia channel. I didn’t have much interest to keep watching, but I did force myself to be interested somehow, I don’t know why. Then I saw the bootlegged DVD and I thought it was a perfect way to catch up. It took me weeks to finally watch the first pilot episode due to lack of interest.
I was hooked instantly.
There was something about the show that made me happy, unlike other shows. The characters were quirky, fun, hilarious… the songs were catchy… and my love for Sue Sylvester’s hatred for Glee club and her clever insults.
I liked Finn. He came across as this soft, sweet, non-typical jock and naive looking. I was rooting for Rachel and Finn together. I was happy when they did, because it’s different. You don’t really see a jock or the school’s star quarterback who’s dating the captain of the cheerleader throwing away his popularity to be in a Glee club full of losers. That made me like the show.
Glee will never be the same again. You’re always gonna be thinking, “Finn is no longer alive…” when you watch Glee. I mean Finn Hudson was the main part of Glee and his relationship with Quinn at first, then with Rachel. I can’t imagine how Lea Michelle, who plays Rachel and also his real life gf, must be feeling and the rest of Glee cast. It’s never easy to handle the sudden death of someone you know, especially someone you’re very close with. My heart goes out to his family, friends, his gf Lea and the Glee cast and crew.
So few days ago I watched an episode of The Big Bang Theory (TBBT) on WarnerTV Asia. I’m a bit late on catching this show’s trend because I don’t watch recent shows as they all suck except for Glee and The Vampire Diaries. Sitcoms were so 90s and and early 00’s.. so this TBBT, it didn’t appeal to me at first because it’s just about 4 nerds and a girl, and it’s all about physics and stuff and I’m like eh.. but I was so wrong. After watching an episode from season 2, I was laughing so hard and that’s something since modern shows can’t do that anymore…
So now I have 5 seasons to watch. Finished season 1, 4 more to go.
What I like about the show is the characters. The actors fit their character so perfectly, and it’s so hard not to like any one of them. Each have a certain personality and characteristic that I find so amusing. Sheldon with his annoying quirks and Mr-Know-It-All, Leonard who is a plain nerd who has a crush on Penny, then we have Raj who I think has a very charming smile, an Indian who has problems talking to girls and last but not least, Howard, who thinks he’s Mr Sexy and the ladies man. The jokes are brilliantly written and there’s not a moment when I found boring at all. The show itself is brilliantly written.
Another thing I like is the catchy theme song! It’s by Barenaked Ladies.. ah haven’t heard these guys for ages.
THE BIG BANG THEORY THEME SONG
Our whole universe was in a hot dense state,
Then nearly fourteen billion years ago expansion started. Wait…
The Earth began to cool,
The autotrophs began to drool,
Neanderthals developed tools,
We built a wall (we built the pyramids),
Math, science, history, unraveling the mysteries,
That all started with the big bang!
“Since the dawn of man” is really not that long,
As every galaxy was formed in less time than it takes to sing this song.
A fraction of a second and the elements were made.
The bipeds stood up straight,
The dinosaurs all met their fate,
They tried to leap but they were late
And they all died (they froze their asses off)
The oceans and pangea
See ya, wouldn’t wanna be ya
Set in motion by the same big bang!
It all started with the big BANG!
It’s expanding ever outward but one day
It will cause the stars to go the other way,
Collapsing ever inward, we won’t be here, it wont be hurt
Our best and brightest figure that it’ll make an even bigger bang!
Australopithecus would really have been sick of us
Debating out while here they’re catching deer (we’re catching viruses)
Religion or astronomy, Encarta, Deuteronomy
It all started with the big bang!
Music and mythology, Einstein and astrology
It all started with the big bang!
It all started with the big BANG!
It’s absolutely a fucking disgusting show where mothers abuse their child so they could enter in pageants. By abuse I mean majority of the kids don’t even understand what they have to go through at such young age but they’re forced to by means of brainwashing. They’re forced to go through things only adults should do – like this spray tanning clip:
It’s mostly mothers either going to the tanning store to get spray tanned or do it themselves. Some of the kids would cry and refuse which kind of sad to watch. But the thing is, it’s a show that people wanna watch. I hate what these stupid mothers who are insecure about their life and living their dream through their kids but somehow it just keeps me interested to watch how their pageants turn out.
My recent watch was this stupid Russian mother who I want to slap so hard that her head would spin 360 degrees ‘The Exorcist’ style. Out of all, she’s the one I really hate, and how competitive she was that SHE threw a tantrum when things didn’t go so well. Wtf. Even when her daughter won something (even though not the ultimate grand supreme title) but she acted as if her kid is worthless. What kind of a mother is that?
Then she had the nerve to threaten the person who uploaded the video just because everybody gave nasty comments about her attitude. Wtf.
But I do love Eden Wood (retired from pageant world now). I think she’s pretty & smart but way too mature for her age. Kids her age should start 1st grade and try to make friends and play outside, not act like they’re 30 years old. Then another one is Makenzie. She’s a brat but she’s entertaining. But they look like fake barbies in their pictures which is so gross.
But I never thought that these fake barbie babies look any good with the poofed up wig and fake teeth and thick makeup but well, I like their dresses though. They actually look very scary —
I’m on the edge of bankruptcy. I’m not kidding. There’s nothing I can do in this city. If I was in KL, I’d have bigger and better opportunities to get a job that’s related to what I studied. I have loans to pay, bills to pay, personal expense to cover and I’m pulling my hair out right now. Why am I stuck in this city? Because I can’t afford KL lifestyle at the moment. Also, there’s NO WAY in hell that I’m going back living in that hell hole a.k.a my apartment.
I’m being pressured from every corner. My work, my mom, my ‘boss’, my colleague, my family, my own self… I just wish that I could disappear for a while. Sometimes I think that I’ve strayed too far from my life plan and made some bad choices .. especially leaving KL and leaving my passion. I don’t know. This is killing me. I just wish everybody would stop pressuring me, leave me be and let me do my own thing peacefully.
What’s even suckier is that I went into Amazon.com couple of days ago and saw majority of my DVDs that are in my wishlist are on SALE. Some are dirt cheap. And I can’t friggin afford them anymore! But I couldn’t let go two – CHARMED COMPLETE SERIES DVD which I’ve been wanting for SO LONG but it has always been so expensive.. It was on sale for USD$71.50 so technically each season cost about $9 only.. so that’s cheap. The second one is THE VAMPIRE DIARIES SEASON 2 BLURAY which cost $23.00.. FUCKING FINALLY. I have been keeping an eye for this set to go cheap and finally it’s cheap enough for me to buy! Right after I ordered them Charmed increased to almost $100 and Vampire Diaries increased to almost $51.00 at the time I’m writing this.
There were a lot more DVD that were cheap but I didn’t order them fast enough and the next few hours they increased in price 🙁 This is so depressing but I did spend thousands on amazon for the past few months.. O_O;; I think now is a good time to save because it’s –
‘Tis the season to be jolly, falalala la la la laaaaaa….
Jolly my arse.. Gosh I can’t believe it’s the last month of 2011 already.. and I don’t think I’ve done anything productive this year…
