Fan - Part 1

HOUSE: If there was a real Dr. House somewhere, I'll drop my boyfriend like a hot tamale and pick on his brain instead. Genius! Pure Genius!

SOUTHPARK: Can you keep a secret? Rez has no idea that I love this show. In fact, he thinks that I abhor this show and I just let him think that because I find his attempts in convincing me to give the show a chance (when in truth I DO love the show)...funny.

Let's just say that the show is a reflection of the thoughts that are running through my head. I'll just leave it to those four boys to say all the most obscene, vulgar, repulsive, and offensive things that I do not have the courage to discuss publicly.

SPARTACUS - BLOOD AND SAND: Oh come on, isn't it already obvious? Just like what Arvy said, to hell with the historical disparity, I'm in it for those damned gladiators who have truly been blessed by the gods! Wink.

GLEE: It's Show Choir, people! How can you not like it? Plus, I needed something to help me remove the bad taste that the high school musical left in my mouth.

Yawn. The sandman's here. More to come...

Thinking Out Loud

Sometimes I wish that I can look at things the same way as my sister looks at them. Remove the complications. Keep it simple. Not to sweat the small stuff. Laugh (even though your heart was really aching) and smile. Play handicap and hope to get away with it.

But then wishes don't come true, do they?

So wake up and smell the shit that your neighbor's dog dumped on your front yard because you can't really do anything about it.

Wait...let me rephrase that. You CAN do something about it, Den --- get a shotgun and kill the damned dog or better yet, kill your neighbor. That should fix it. Now, there is no reason for you to wish for something as lame as what you just mentioned in the beginning of this entry.

Z for Zombie

When the book "World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War" was suggested, I thought of saying "Nah...I'll pass" (since I hated zombies!) but decided otherwise after Arvy gave me snippets of the book.

Good decision.

It was an interesting read indeed. The writer, Max Brooks, did an excellent job on intrinsically describing every detail that it was almost likened to an actual movie experience! The best thing was --- it was not only about blood, guts and rotting corpses (because the plot actually made sense). It was a socio-political satire which was horrific not just entirely because of the zombies, but also because of the narrated responses of the community to the supposed 'Great Panic.' The responses were just too plausible; knowing that it was close to reality made me put the book down once in a while because I felt like kicking someone.

However, I felt the book lacked more narratives about animals and their positive contributions. I can only remember two stories, one --- about the dogs as partners in luring the zombies (heroic but sad) and two --- about the whales as food for stranded survivors and zombies at sea (practical but sick).

Anyway, you guys should read it.
