From G’s To Gents: I LOVE THE SHOW!

In Entertainment, Giggle To This!, Junkie Session, Me Likey, TV Talk on January 8, 2009 at 6:07 am

Happy New Year everyone!

Okay so I’ve been really busy with work and stuff, but I have another confession to make.  I actually am becoming an addict of MTV.com.  Seriously, I’ve been watching trashy crappy shows like “Paris Hilton’s New BFF”, “My Super Sweet Sixteen” and stuff.  Talk about guilty pleasure.  Anyway, I finally found something share-worthy with all of you.  Now let me remind you, this is a full episode.  So if you have a slow internet connection, I think it kinda would take FOREVER to watch this.  But it’s really worth watching.

The show I’m talking about is “From G’s to Gents“, a show about how gangsta guys are trained inside a posh mansion, to be gentlemen and change their lives.  Hosted by the (maybe now ex) umbrella holder / personal assistant of P. Diddy’s, Fonzworth Bentley, this show is actually created by Jamie Foxx.  Uh huh.  The TRUE gentleman in da house.  But Mr. Foxx isn’t really in the show.  And that’s the only thing bumming me out.

This episode, to me is THE FUNNIEST!  As you know, gangsta boys don’t speak eloquently as gentlemen do.  So this episode is very ‘My Fair Lady’-ish, but no Audrey Hepburn cuteness.  Check out the class session and the battle session where they challenge each other up, talking about ART.  I couldn’t stop laughing.  Again, make sure your connection is fast and stable, peeps… I mean, people.  Happy watching!

If the video player doesn’t show, just click on the MTV link.  It’ll take you straight to the MTV website and you can watch from there too!


Dedicated to Grey’s Anatomy Lovers

In Entertainment, Giggle To This!, Me Likey, TV Talk, Video Post on December 5, 2008 at 5:48 am

The YOUTUBE FREAK strikes again!  And this time, it’s time to talk about Grey’s Anatomy.

I love the storyline, but I somewhat hate Meredith’s face.  This spoof by (the late) MADtv actually expresses how I feel about the show.


Think it’s nasty?  Well, how about mixin’ things up a bit?  Here’s Grey’s Anatomy’s cast meets McMeanie.  Who’s McMeanie?  See for yourself and be prepared to laugh like mad.


I can’t quite understand why they shut down MADtv.

Damn recession.

The Best Opening Credits Ever

In Entertainment, Me Likey, TV Talk, Video Post on September 25, 2008 at 5:29 am

Those Emmy judges are fools.  What’s with only 5 nominations and no Emmy for this?  Seriously.  Even the opening itself deserves an Emmy!!!

Need I say more?

*checking Youtube ever so often for season 3 leaks*

The Science Of Bad Movies

In Entertainment, Reviews, Sarcasm on September 22, 2008 at 5:24 am

Remember this review?

Well I just watched a similarly terrible movie on Saturday, titled: Babylon A.D., starring Vin Diesel.

Okay, by now you’re probably saying: “That’s what you get watching a Vin Diesel movie.”  Truthfully, the global warming made me watch.  Jakarta was literally the melting pot (read: everything could melt) due to the heat that day, and I needed somewhere cool to go.  What could be cooler than the XXI cinemas air conditioners?  Hence the movie, because we (me and le boyfriend) missed Hellboy.  The nearest movie was Babylon A.D. and we proceeded, ignoring the huge possibility of the movie being awful as we saw Vin Diesel on the poster.  As long as we can find A.C, we’ll watch A.D.


I’m not gonna rewrite the plot here.  I’m just gonna type my observation of how to avoid or to make the most out of watching bad movies after several experiences, including especially the most traumatic one: Sunshine.

That’s What She Said!

In Entertainment on September 4, 2008 at 5:01 am

I love her songs, but I don’t particularly like her behavior.

Ladies and gentlemen, behold the battle of two QUEENS of our time, onstage.

“I can still snort you under the table”

Man, coming up with that lame comeback, Sir Elton must be pissed big time.  Somebody should wash that Allen girl’s mouth with soap.  Not another glass of bubbly.

Kids today.  Tsk, tsk.

They Sent Me Stuff! :D

In Entertainment, Image Post, Me Likey on June 26, 2008 at 12:28 am

And after only 12 days of writing about their fabulous fish tank toilet, and sending them my thoughts about how cool their website is, the guys at Stupididiotic.com sent me an envelope full of merchandise.  Check this out!

Cool Stuff!

The pack contained:  Stupididiotic pills a.k.a fruity mints, half a dozen of stickers, one 3D sticker to stick on a car and one holographic sticker.

You know, I’ve read ‘Letters From A Nut‘ a million times, but only today I understand what effect made Ted L. Nancy got so addicted in writing to consumer product corporations, hotels, airlines even kings.  He sent his thoughts, praises and complaints to these companies and most of the time gets favorable replies or freebies!

These merchandise might seem like a silly promotional stuff, but to think that they actually took the effort in sending these out to people who write like me… makes it so sweet.   It makes you feel appreciated for giving them the appreciation.  It also proves that a nice sentence goes a long way.  And it’s one smart marketing move that should be set up as an example for us here in Indonesia, as we tend to dismiss the attentions given to us by customers and focusing more on the complaints.

So again, kudos to Stupidiotic.com for their brainy (not to mention ultra-cool) approach to silly praises!

And to my readers, do make yourself heard because somewhere out there…

…some people actually listen!

Morning Discovery

In Entertainment, Image Post, Randomness, TV Talk on May 31, 2008 at 12:34 pm

I was searching for Ed Westwick this morning when I came across this sexy cast picture of Gossip Girl.

Observe the new sexiness, the white, the guy on the bottom right (yes, my new crush named Ed Westwick a.k.a Chuck Bass, the anti-hero character in the show) and the whole idea of taking a picture of the cast lying on a huge huge bed.

Suddenly I got a déjà vu.

Not-So-Secret Service

In Entertainment, Giggle To This!, Questions, Reviews, Silly Posts on March 30, 2008 at 1:17 am

“I don’t get why the secret service is called ‘secret service’. To me, standing behind the president all the time to be seen by lots of people doesn’t seem like a secret”
“I mean, come on.  They all wear the same suits, same sunglasses, same earpieces… they are nowhere near secretive”
“Well they are not secretive.  Their missions are”
“Whatever, I think they should be named something else.  Say ‘President’s Guards’ or something.  That’s at least what our country does rightly”
“In general, they are doing something secretive.  Thus the secret service”
“Okay, what do those guys do.  Tell me.”
“Protect the president”
“You know that?  I thought it was supposed to be a secret mission!”
“Baby, I gotta pee.”

And so he made a beeline to the toilet, and I was there, now thinking about how those secret service guys should act, if they wanna pee during their guarding session.

All this because of watching Vantage Point.  Brilliant storytelling, very simple story, a bit boring in the middle but a hell lot of action.

Loved it!
