I'm kind of pissed at 2006 because I haven't managed to get any sort of real fulfillment watching television of movies. If you think fulfillment from film is oxymoronic I highly suggest you go for a brain transplant because you can get tons of satisfaction watching film. I do.

I'm totally done with Lost, and it's seriously going down the shithole. It's not doing it for me anymore and now even the twists and turns the writers put into the plot is actually coming across as very gimmicky to me already. Half the time the tension doesn't add up to anything constructive - i.e. any sort of revelation of a character or some sort of emotional layering.

I've tried to put myself through America's Next Top Model and I can't do it anymore. The eye candy is getting worse and worse every season. Eye candy is the main reason why i watch it anymore. the shots and stuff I do appreciate but i feel most of them have such a 'done that' feel to it, I rather be reading photography mags or fashion mags (which i never do) if I wanted to look at good shots myself.

I'm not going to mention other reality television programmes because most of them are really terrible at the moment.

Sitcoms/comedy wise I'm loving Kitchen Confidential, which they're airing on Ch5 at a gross neglected timeslot, but I almost self imploded from shock and anger when i found out it was cancelled after one season.

Well at least there are some gems which i uncovered this year like Veronica Mars, which I'm determined I'm going to follow it fervently. And I've just finished the DvDs for the 4th season of Six Feet Under, which I love to bits - it has some of the best dialogue ever heard on television.

Well looking forward to 2007. Heroes is coming to Singapore at the end of the month on Starworld! If any of you don't have cable, this is the time to get it.


School is Fun

I'm probably going to shift all my posts over to bearswithlaserspewpew, or hopefully direct this page to bearswithlasers, but since I'm not sure how to do that at the moment I'll just make do with posting here for a bit.

Anyway, school has finally reopened, and I can't believe I'm actually saying this, but I've been bored to bits during the 1 month december holidays. It's more of a breather actually than an actual holiday itself, because in NUS - as with American schools - have the amazingly long 3 months summer holidays. (may-july)

I guess part of the reason I'm so excited for schoolis because I have this closet nerd in me that just loves to learn more and acquire knowledge - probably so that I can feel some sort of fulfillment? (geez i'm like 17 all over again) There's also the obvious motivation of having eye candy everyday. And the last biggest reason is the fact that I'm just such a lazy person that I can't really drag my butt off the bed or sofa to do any damn thing. Christmas is a busy season for me so yes I was still busy, but because there are things that i HAVE to do. But in any case when i'm faced with the possibility of just slacking, I'll always choose that in preference of actually doing something constructive. So school starting again is like grabbing my arm by force dragging me out of my stupid comfort zone.

School's been great so far, although I'm having this weird feeling of unease. I'm not quite sure what it is, I'm pretty sure it's not depression because I'm like over the whole emo thing totally and I'm sick of being a damn victim all the time in my mind, plus the whole depression gig thing gets really boring after a while. Anyway I'm surrounded with cheerful, happy people all the time so that makes it even way more impossible. I'm not sure. Maybe this uneasiness is just my dreaded lazy nature shouting out in some obscure part of my psyche in protest to me actually having to study again, resulting in such a weird feeling.

But anyway that malady aside, I'm pretty much geeked for school this semester partly because I'm taking really really cool modules. I'm doing my first film module this semester!! And it's like way freaking cool, though many of them are already year 2s and year 3s, so they pretty much have a great head start over me, but hard work will compensate adequately. Plus I got into a project group right away coz a pretty nice acquaintance of mine asked me to join, and my group mates are just amazingly cool people. I think this module is going to be really swell for me. And there isn't even any tutorial to speak of!

Boy am I happy.
