Cable Regrets

I’m actually regretting the fact that we had our cable TV disconnected.

I didn’t realize that the TV show “Game of Thrones” was actually awesome (it’s either that or I have a thing for violent TV shows).

I stumbled upon a video on YouTube about Arya Stark and Jaqen H’ghar, and the next thing I knew, I’m hooked!

Although, since it is based on the books by George R. R. Martin, I’m seriously considering buying the books instead, since it’s probably much more complete… kind of like reading Harry Potter or The Lord Of The Rings before watching the movie.

I had to let go of the cable, mainly because I have the InterNet connection to probably watch it online. Only the problem now is which website can I watch it from.

Can anybody tell me the (free) website where I can watch Game of Thrones? T_T

The Glee Project

So get this…

It’s my 3rd day off during my 4-day weekend/holiday. I don’t have to go to work for 4 days, which should be pretty cool, since I scheduled everything well. We had a photowalk on Saturday, I had to go to Lagro on Sunday, and I had a gym date with my BFF Joyce on Monday.

Unfortunately, a storm picked it’s chance so show up its ugly head, and ruined our photowalk and my trip to Lagro. T_T

So there I was, bored to death, playing PC games in my laptop again, when I got extremely bored and decided to watch TV.

And then, lo and behold, I saw the cutest thing on TV… which is pretty huge since it’s been a while since I’ve seen anything cute on TV for a while. XD

Photobucket

This little piece of hotness right here is Samuel Larsen, one of the winners in Oxygen’s “The Glee Project”, where they conducted a reality contest to find out who would be the next person to be written into the TV show “Glee”. Fortunately, the show’s creator decided that the four final contestants (Damian McGinty, Samuel Larsen, Lindsay Pearce and Alex Newell) would each have episodes in the TV show. Damian and Sam would have 7 episodes, and Lindsay and Alex would have 2 each.

Anyway, Sam is such a cutie! It’s been a while since I’ve seen someone who looks good with dreads and piercing. And he’s quite the musician as well. I might be a little delayed at knowing about him from TV, but well, it was worth it.

I swear, he is so cute….

Rest In Peace, Ryan Dunn

How ironic is this? Just this Saturday, I was laughing my butt off because of this man’s gimmicks in “Jackass 3D”, and now he’s gone.

It’s scary and saddening. T_T

Anyway, for those who don’t know, Ryan Dunn, who is one of the regular stuntmen in Jackass and Viva La Bam, died in a car crash along with his passenger who is now identified as Zachary Hartwell, one of the production assistants of Jackass 2, and a stunt driver.

Now the irony gets worse… a stunt driver who died in a car crash even though he wasn’t in a movie and he’s not driving. ~_~

A lot of people are mourning Ryan Dunn, me included. He was one of the people who didn’t have to shave or buy testoripped to be fun and awesome (yes, humor is awesome, people). However, in the reports, it was said was Dunn was drunk at the time of the accident, having tweeted an image of him drinking with friends a few hours before the accident (the image has since been deleted). Critics and fans alike are debating left and right about what happened to Dunn, and although I’d like say my thoughts on this, I think I’ll keep it for myself for now, out of respect for those people who are affected by this tragedy.

Aw, man… I wonder how Bam Margera is doing… he’s one of my favorite skateboarder/Jackass, and he’s the one closest to Dunn. The dude must be crushed. Hang in there, Bam!

Anyway, my thoughts, prayers and condolences to Ryan Dunn’s family and friends. He was an awesome dude, and will always be remembered by all Jackass fans.

What if Mark Callaway died?

Related to my previous post on Eddie Guerrero…

It made me realize something… what if Mark Callaway (The real name of The Undertaker)… you know, dies…?

And don’t give me the kind of jokes that he would rise up from the dead or something just because of his in-ring persona. ~_~

I mean, yeah… technically (meaning in the ring) that’s basically what he does. But there is this fact that Mark Callaway is altogether human. He gets injured, he bleeds and he grows old. Lately, his age is showing up in his form, but he still kicks a$$ though. XD

I mean, look at Ric Flair. The man is a legend. The man is awesome. And yet the man grew old and had to retire. And WWE never became the same after that. I get the feeling that should Taker retire (or die… which I hope doesn’t happen anytime soon… I adore him so much ~_~), there would be a lot of crying fans, a lot of sad fans… me included.

Actually, the way I see it, even though Taker is still performing strongly, I think he should be inducted to the WWE Hall of Fame already. I mean, the guy made A LOT of unforgettable matches, he invented several stipulation matches (Hell In A Cell, Casket Match, Buried Alive, etc), and is quite a superstar in his own right. He CHANGED the face of WWE, man! And yet he is still not considered a Hall of Famer. ~_~

Maybe this is something I should write to WWE about… “Please Consider Mark Callaway aka The Undertaker As A WWE Hall Of Fame Inductee”. It’s quite a mouthful, but it works. XD

Eddie Guerrero’s 5th Year Death Anniversary

I just realized…

It’s been 5 years since Eddie Guerrero passed away.

Man, I wish I had a bunch of ipods so I can watch all of Eddie’s previous matches. Gosh, I miss that guy.

Not to insult any wrestling fan, but I don’t know… a lot of things are not as exciting as it used to be. Some of the greatest (albeit oldest) wrestlers are gone. Rick Flair and Shawn Micheals had quit, Owen Hart and Eddie Guerrero and Umaga had passed away, and some of them have moved to other brands, like Kurt Angle. In fact, sometimes I only watch WWE because of only 5 wrestlers… John Cena, The Big Show, Triple H, Rey Mysterio Jr., and of course the Gawd-awesome Undertaker.

Yep, I’ve been an Undertaker fan since the age of 6. XD

Anyway, back to topic, wrestling is not as exciting (for me) as it used to be. Of course, the gong of Undertaker’s theme still makes me scream like crazy but some of the things they do, and some of the story lines they make… they just don’t make sense anymore.

And none of the wrestlers don’t seem to have the same comedic timing and brilliance of Eddie Guerrero. No one can replace him in the WWE universe it seems.

Man, I really miss the guy. I wish I had one of those “I’m Your Papi” shirts… I’d wear them everyday.

A Librarian’s Rant

Okay, so obviously with all that has happened to me because of Typhoon Ketsana aka Ondoy, I pretty much should be ranting about that, or at the very least, tell my tale of what happened during those times. And I will, I promise you, since I’m already making a sort of recollection of what happened during that flood (I’m getting blanks during my recollection, actually, probably from trauma… but don’t worry, I’ll remember it). For now, there is one thing I’m very mad about.

It started with a simple TV show, which Filipinos know as “Maala-ala Mo Kaya”. The episode that I saw today pretty much touched my heart, since it told the story of small-town teachers and their hardships in getting their students the proper education for their future. Even as a Librarian, I can pretty much relate to what they were telling, since I also would like the students that borrow my books to be great and successful citizens in the future.

Unfortunately, my sister just had to ruin the great feeling of watching that TV show. As she was getting ready for work, she smirked at me and said, “Parang yung isang tao dyan, gusto daw mag-ala teacher (Like some people here, who said she wants to be a teacher)”. This, coupled with the fact that she has been doing nothing but complain since she arrived a few moments ago, and her butting into my personal business, pretty much ticked me off.

I mean, seriously, what the heck?! It’s too bad you guys couldn’t see her smirk, but if you did, you’d probably smack her. I wanted to, anyway. Just because I’m a librarian doesn’t mean I’m “bound” to be stuck in a library. Just because I’m a librarian doesn’t mean I can’t teach. Heck, I’m teaching already just by giving out books to the schools and students who need them.

Sheesh, I can’t believe that people have become so narrow-minded. Librarians are not just some “clerks” that you see in the Library. We are information specialists. Why do you think there’s a course in college called “Library and Information Science”? Argh. It just makes me so mad, I can’t even write straight. Librarians and the library are an important aspect in a school. We’re not just some random people who got stuck in a library because a principal or a school head ordered us to. We’re there in the library because we studied about it. We’re there because we believe that books and reading are important to people. We’re there in that library because we believe that wrong or inaccurate information could be fatal for a student’s education!

I hate people like this… those who belittle librarians AND teachers. I, for one, believe that teachers and librarians are no different from each other. Why? Because they both aim for the goal of educating students. Because they both have to work hard to make sure that their students have wonderful futures ahead of them. Because they both believe that illiteracy is a disease that should be cured. Even you, the person who is reading this, owe your reading skills to a teacher or a librarian. Without them, all you would be seeing are just some random letters and not understand a word I’m writing. Heck, I OWE my reading and writing skills to both my teachers and the past librarians I’ve met. If it weren’t for them, I’d be pretty much dead, since it takes reading skills to read something as simple as street signs.

And yes, I happen to be passionate about my work as a librarian. I owe that part to my college professors (BIG shout out to my professors at the CEU Library and Information Science, by the way).

So yeah, STOP poking fun at teachers, librarians AND those students who aspire to be teachers or librarians. It’s not funny at all when you make fun of a person whose job is to create doctors, nurses, lawyers, artists and even Presidents from his/her students.

Poking fun at the very people who sacrifice so much of their time, money and life to make this country a little better… sheeesh, what is the world coming to?
