Michael Jackson’s video February 8, 2009

On the way to school this morning, the bus I rode on was playing a concert of Michael Jackson. This was Michael Jackson before this nose disappeared but after the Gluta treatment.

I just found it funny that the concert showed both his dancing and performance skills as well as the many people who passed out in his concert. The shots were either of Michael Jackson singing and dancing or of his fans passing out and being carried in stretchers or being slapped by paramedics to test if they are conscious. I do not know what the producers of the video were trying to convey, but I just found the juxtaposition weird.  Showing Michael Jackson dancing – with his weird “costume” that looks like something a lady gymnast would wear, only he puts on pants underneath it, – and his many unconscious fans in alternating shots was really weird.

Slumdog Millionaire January 24, 2009

There has been quite a hype about this movie. And I waited until I had time to watch and savor it but it fell flat. I did not get the movie. So the guy’s in Who Wants to be a Millionaire, and uses that to get in touch with the love of his life. In the process of being interrogated for his success, he ends up sharing his life story. And? Not much going on in there.

I just did not get the movie. Maybe watching it after I watched Revolutionary Road last night was a bad idea, or maybe this is just not my cup of tea, or chai.

I think this movie is the same as the Big Fat Greek Wedding. The Big Fat Greek Wedding was a hit because having such a large, noisy family is not just a common thing for those watching it, especially Americans. This movie sells to western people cos they do not have slums and have not seen poverty like this one. For someone who sees poverty, just like the one presented in Slumdog Millionaire, on a daily basis, there was nothing that made the movie special. Since I am not a film major and cannot judge a movie’s cinematography and direction and what-not, I usually base my judgment of a movie on the skills of the actors, the music used and the story. Though I think it was well acted, and the movie did have a good musical score, there was nothing in the story that excited me. The love story did not even feel well presented.

But just for one to be a part of the bandwagon, watch it. But for me, I’ll live if I had not watched it. It doesn’t make my list of great movies.

And I still cannot believe Revolutionary Road did not get the nominations it deserves.

Revolutionary Road January 23, 2009

I hate great movies, especially the ones where I end up teary-eyed and enjoying it – teary-eyed is an utter understatement. I just finished watching Revolutionary Road, and that is how I am right now, teary-eyed. Kate and Leo should have gotten an Academy Award nomination for their performances. I am no film critic, it’s either I like it or not, either it catches my attention or not, either it is interesting or not. This was something I liked, attentively watched, and was quite interesting. I will leave it at that.

I just love depressing movies, they make me feel better.

Korean song syndrome December 3, 2008

I usually enjoy having a song in my head and just letting it play on. It may be a One Reoublic song, or the chanting of the barker at the jeepney terminal – yes, the barker’s chant turns into a song in my head.

On my way to school today, the song I had in my head is some Korean hip-hop (or so they claim) boy group. It just played and played and played. The song was obviously in a language I do not understand, which annoyed me. So I ended up googling it and looking for a way to get to hear the song even though Youtube and Imeem is blocked in the office computer. Found one. Now having my fix of this Big Bang song – I think it is entitled Sunset Glow.

I should stop listening to what my cousins are listening to. Haha. I just hate it that I am enjoying this music.

Since the new season just wrapped up, I just thought of taking this quiz. Haha


Which Entourage Character Are You?

You are Eric. You are the executive, the suit. You know what the grand strategy is, you understand what is needed of you, and you execute. Most people tend to underestimate you, but you deliver quite a surprise. Your hard work and natural abilities provide you with the confidence to step up to the plate when it is required of you. Although you aren’t the All-Star of the group, you are the Manager entrusted with confidently calling the shots.
Find Your Character @ BrainFall.com

Hopefully the next season starts soon. Can’t wait for it. Haha.

E is my favorite character, so this was fun. I did not need to retake it to get the result I wanted.

Based DAW on some cartoon show. I am excited to see it nonetheless. Well, the trailer is good, so I am keeping my fingers crossed that it really is good.

Was reading Dilbertblog  where Mr. Adams said that most pop songs are actually made-up of nonsensical lyrics.  The readers gave random words and a band in Germany made a song by stringing most of the words together. Quite catchy and really funny too! Here’s the video.

I cannot believe the headline when I saw it in Ya-boo. He was found dead in his apartment in Brooklyn. He was just 28 for crying out loud. Aww. I really feel bad, not because I know him personally (duh) but he was a really good actor and I was really excited to see him in this summer’s Batman movie. Oh my. What a loss. There are just very few actors I really admire and he was slowly getting into that list, I think the trailer of Batman did it for me.

Dead at 28, that is really early. He was in his prime, just at the beginning of it. What a bad way to start this day.
