Fighting fire with fire
Despite still feeling like shit today, I ate the following: Large fries, chicken foldover, apple pie from McDonalds, chicken tang hoon soup, sambal kang kong, prawn toast and tom yam soup from thai Xpress, a huge scoop of gelato, and a few of those fake crab claw finger food things. I predict me getting well in about a year.
Conan looks like he hasn’t aged AT ALL.
Why Do You Let Me Stay Here - M. Ward and Zooey...
I am SHIVERING despite it being pretty hot right now. I hate being sick.
I caught my dad’s flu despite taking massive amounts of Vitamin C the past week (although HAH, unlike most people, my Vitamin C comes in the form of a few thousand packs of Florida’s Natural Fruit nuggets instead of actual Vitamin C capsules). It does not help at all that my radio talkshow is tomorrow! I’m interviewing a girl named Agri! Kinda exciting.
Don’t know if you guys noticed, but I added the Human Calendar to my sidebar. The date and pictures change daily. I FIND THIS KIND OF AMAZING.
Actor in a comedy series: Alec Baldwin, “30 Rock.” Actress in a comedy series: Tina Fey, “30 Rock.” Comedy series cast: “The Office.” HELL YES!
When I was little, I used to be insanely jealous of my neighbour because her name was Kimberly (Pink Power Ranger). The only memory I have of her is playing a game with my brother to compete for this page of shiny stickers of pretty fishes she had.
Tina Fey as Tinkerbell →
Frankly, I think the whole photo campaign is kind of ridiculous and random, but Tina looks awesome. However, I am *offended* that Marc Anthony is Aladdin (my second hottest Disney male character). If they do one for the Little Mermaid, Eric better be shirtless and super hot.
I was really bored, so I took this quiz. →
Jim Halpert’s my ideal TV boyfriend? Yeah, like I couldn’t tell already.
According to this Las Vegas Sun article, Barack Obama’s favourite TV show is apparently The Wire and his favourite character is Omar Little. — dingoesatemybaby More proof that Obama is awesome. “I WON’T LET APPLE RELEASE THE NEW AND IMPROVED IPOD THE DAY AFTER YOU BOUGHT THE PREVIOUS MODEL.”
It’s been an exhausting week. It’s nice to finally watch the 5 remaining unwatched Mythbusters episodes in my computer all in a row without having to worry about sociological concepts and radio production thingamajigs. I have an interview with Mediacorp next week for my internship programme. It feels like I’m going to work for the devil, if the devil made terrible TV shows...
10 stunning ultra-geeky home cinemas →
Because a Death Star home cinema would be the first thing I would build if I had money.
This makes this overall crappy week a little better.
So, what do you think of those criminal crimes?– Lorene, while interviewing strangers about the Yellow Ribbon Project.
I wasn’t a huge fan, but I’m pretty devastated. In fact, the whole online community and a surprising amount of people I know are just in total disbelief. It just feels so weird because it’s so close, generation-wise. Also, this disgusts me.
Eye of the Liger!
While producing liners and things for my Radio Production module project, we came across these sick song-titles. Urban Turban Club Allah Mix Light-hearted angst Islam hugs Eye of the Liger (Perfect if you ever want a Rambo/ Napolean Dynamite crossover.) Pandora’s got a New Box Child Prodigy Womb Menace And my personal favourite, under the Middle Eastern genre, “Oil Well that Ends...
Stef: Does this MTV sound familiar to you - a woman singing + many other women in bikinis washing this guy's car.
Stef: I need it for a Sociology journal. Who's the artiste?
Jan: Sounds like Jessica Simpson's
Stef: Didn't look like her.
Jan: or Christina Aguilera's carwash.
Stef: Not her either.
Jan: Shakira? JLo?
Stef: I can't recognize her face at all.
Jan: Well, Alicia Keys would be out then.
Jan: Pink? Paris?
Stef: Do ALL those artistes have videos featuring girls washing cars for men? Geez.
This is pretty amazing: →
When gamers David and Elly got married, their friends designed a personalized video game for their wedding. The first part of that post is mostly geek-talk, but the whole thing’s pretty amazing and incredibly thoughtful.
Arrrrrrrgh you watching Cloverfield?
Almost everyone I have talked to about Cloverfield has given me the same reaction - “You watched it in a cinema!?!” You guys! I’m not that big a pirate! I think. Okay, I download most of the television shows I watch, but do you see Channel 5 giving Liz Lemon or Matt Saracen a chance to be awesome? No. How else would I survive? (PLUS I BUY THE DVDS TO MAKE UP FOR IT.)
I think I need to start losing weight. And not in a “Omg I won’t eat at all for the next few months just so I can have stick-thin legs like your’s” but because I just realised I’m eat twice the amoun my 20-year-old brother eats daily. So yeah.
Pop-culture Consumption 2008 →
I’m keeping track of all the movies and television show episodes I watch this year. Rec me some if you can!
I’m really happy with the colour theme I came up with for my tumblr right now. It includes all my favourite colours (peach, lime green, grey, shocking pink).
My parents have suddenly been hit by some sort of exercise bug, and have been visiting the gym a few times the past two weeks. Good, because it means endorphin rushes for my mom (“Endorphins make you happy. Happy people just don’t shoot their husbands, they just don’t!”), and bad, because now I am the only person I know who doesn’t give a shit about their personal...
This is mostly from memory cause I closed the MSN window while obsessing over my tumblr theme.
Hidzir: My mom texted me just now "At NTUC. Want new cereal? Trix?" and I replied " Illusions, Mom! Trix is what whores do for money." She didn't get it though.
Me: I can't believe you still eat Trix.
Hidzir: You don't?
Me: No, I gave up after they stopped making them in fruit shapes.
Hidzir: Are we supposed to believe the Koko Krunch mascot is a bear?
Me: Yeah, a koala bear right? A brown koala bear.
Hidzir: It's a racially confused koala bear.
Me: Koala bears aren't brown?
Hidzir: They have kind of dark + whiteish fur.
Me: I've been totally racially profiling koala bears all this while? Sorry, animal kingdom!
Hidzir: I like to think the Koko Krunch bear is the product of a brown bear and koala bear.
I choose to believe that everyone has equally serious conversations about cereal.
I have a habit of not bothienrg to tupe properly when I tel pll goodnight and my brain actally decieds to go to sleep. This uaually happens fatfer 1am.
Stef: i ned todlep
Stef: need ot slepe
Stef: am ridislously tired from this week
Stef: night due
NNone of these typieos are on purspiose.
Not the best film in the world, and some sub-plots annoyed me, but it met my expectations. I’m surprised nobody in my cinema puked from the shaky camera shots (which I’m used to from watching way too much Friday Night Lights). Also, I might be having nightmares involving the monster for the next week or so.
"Corey Worthington, Legend" →
As a (possible) broadcast student in the future, this is an interview that is everything that is wrong and right at the same time. “I suggest you take a long hard look at yourself.” “I have. Everyone has. They love it.”
Shirtless Taylor Kitsch Party →
Pardon the shallow, but I’ve had a horrible day.
Dear skin on roof of mouth, please regrow soon. It hurts like hell without you. I don’t know what happened that made you be scraped off, or whatever, but I need you back.
I love getting my hair cut in a place that plays Norah Jones and serves you tea. There’s nothing more luxurious than getting your hair washed by someone else, and it’s probably the girliest thing I will indulge in (manicures? Not for me. The only time I ever went for one, I destroyed the polish on the first nail by the time the manicurist got to the fifth.)
