Sometimes I Wonder....

So the Oscars were yesterday, I totally enjoyed the show besides the Slumdog sweep, humph! and also yours truly once again called it right for most of the major categories. Anyways, Oscar season signals the end of award season which usually makes me a tad bit sad, which leads to my main topic.

Who gets sad because award season is over? and on the flip side who gets so mega freaking duper excited when award season starts? Making sure to know all the people nominated (be it music or movies or tv shows) so I could give a fair assessment.

The answer: Noone I know :(

Ok so I admit I have a disease, as I call it. The amount of pop culture crap in my head cannot be normal.I'll give you examples.

EXAMPLE 1

A friend of mine asked on his status message(referring to Brangelina), is this the first time a baby mama and their S.O have been nominated for an Oscar at the same time?

Do you have an answer of the top of your head, dear readers? OK, well I could immediately mention Tim Robbins and Susan Sa…

Oscar Tyme '09

Hey lovely peoples, can you believe it, it's another year again and time for the Oscars. Last year, most of my predictions in the major categories were right. This year, I think I may have actually seen all the oscar nominated movies, so I thought I'd give it a shot again this year, so here goes:

Best Picture:
The Curious Case of Benjamin Button
Frost/Nixon
Milk
The Reader
Slumdog Millionaire

Sigh, so unless you have been under a rock, you have to have heard about Slumdog Millionaire, they've pretty much won every award there is to win. At first, I thought the Academy would give it to Benjamin Button but now I am not so sure. I did read somewhere though that Harvey Weinstein is pulling a tough nose campaign for the reader so we might see an upset, if people are tired of the SD ride. As for me, my fav movie was Milk but I know it doesn't stand a chance so here's hoping we have a surprise win like when Crash won over Brokeback Mountain. I think it'll be Slumdog

Best Acto…

The Gospel according to James Morrison

Ok people, I need to take a deep breath..*wooooooohhh, haaaaaa*. I have been blogging real stuvvs but I think I better venture back to my core, which is my pop culture stuffs and stuffs. Sooooo today, as you may have noticed from the title, I am going to be gushing about my latest discovery and obsession - James Morrison.

Ok so a friend of mine recommended a song of his to me, I listened and I liked instantly. I looked him up cute Brit boy who has 2 albums with one album aptly titled Undiscovered. He has this raspy voice thing going and for those of you who remembered my last obsession, Adele, to me he is the male version of her. His heartfelt songs and lyrics combined with this haunting vibe in his songs, ooh wee I couldn't help but fall in love, I mean c'mon the album name alone - Songs for You, Truth for Me is enough to make you want to listen.

Well I shall leave you beautiful people with two of my favorite songs of his, after you listen if you want more feel free to listen…

Happy Valentine's Day

Hello lovely ones, it's February 14 again. I hope most of you had a good day with your loved ones and significant others. As for me, I had a solo day with myself and as I write this at 8.04pm, I still haven't taken a bath (yeah yeah yeah, sharrap!). So instead of feeling sorry for myself, I began to think (wait I do this all the time anyways).

It all started with a writeup I read on a website I frequent, here are excerpts(excuse the language):
"I have always said and will reiterate it once more, a relationship going no where is ONE LONG BAD DATE. Time waits for no one and if you can be very honest to yourself and answer for yourself, "Where is my relationship going?" NOT " where do I want or would like for it to go?" If it is going somewhere stay put, if it's not, cut your losses short. When you cut your loss short, it means you are saving TIME, your TIME on this earth is your LIFE on this earth.

REPEAT IT

MY TIME ON EARTH IS MY LIFE ON EARTH.
ONC…

Thank You God

I have been dealing with various things in all aspects of my life that I have been literally exhausted but tonight as I made my long way back home, I suddenly just had the overwhelming need to thank God. I usually deal with stuff in my head (hence my blog being an entertainment blog and not a personal one)and I wrote an open thank you letter to God in my head, haha. I felt the need to put it in writing and debated on where to put it since it didn't fit in here, then I remembered that this is MY blog and I can put whatver I want, dagnabbit! so here goes:


Thank you God that almost a month later my brain finally got the memo that school is in session. I am now in grind mode.

Thank you God that I am not shameless and I can randomly walk up to people in class and ask them to study with me so they can explain stuff I don't understand.

Thank you God for the Indians who say yes. Without them, I might have flunked out of school by now( I exaggerate)

Thank you God for forgiveness. You are a…
