Greek: The Final Semester

Season 1

When I watch Korean dramas, I get the satisfying feeling after 16 or 20 episodes. I get high when the story suited my taste. Sometimes I easily forget them. But when you follow a show for almost 4 years (3 years, 8 months and 2 days exactly), there's that feeling of longing, the feeling of a friend leaving after years of friendship. I'm pretty much dramatic over this (I know) but that's what I am currently feeling right now. I just finished watching one of my favorite American series and it breaks my heart to realize that there is no new episode to look forward to.

Season 2

Greek. Yeah. That's the show. And I am not even on such a system but that show made me experience a different level of college. Something that I think I won't be able to experience. I guess I am not just that adventurous like Rusty who was a high school geek and turned out to be one of the coolest guys in CRU's greek system and on the show's final episode, became Kappa Tau's newest president. Or I am not as slutty as Rebecca or as confident as Ashleigh. I may not be like them or not able to experience it in reality, but what made me realize (through the final episode or maybe even in the past, i just tend to ignore them) is that what I am thinking right now as their level of college is the parties and the drama. But that's not it, they made me realize that in college, you get to know and learn more about yourself, who your real friends are and what you would really want to do after it. And that is the level of college that I want to experience, be able to learn and have fun at the same time. That is the point of the show.

Season 3

I am sure gonna miss this show. I might re run them in the future (good thing torrent exists hahaha). For four years, I watched Casey go through ZBZ, law school and her quest for true love. And watching her ride off to the sunset with Cappie without me watching her is sad. It's gonna take time to let go but I'll get there. Hahaha. This is turning out to be more dramatic than I thought it would. And I'm sure gonna miss KT. Long Live Kappa Tau! That house sure was a time capsule. And good thing Wade was in the final episode. It feels like a time machine turned time and the original KT brothers were running the house. And Jennifer was there! Spitter's weirdo and psychotic journalist of an ex-gf. hahaha. I was hoping for a Jordin return but what the heck. A girl can wish right? And besides, Rusty's happy with Ash so no argue there. Anyway just to close off this blog, I just want to finally say that. I LOVE CRU! I LOVE ZBZ, KT, Omega Chi, Gamma Psy, Lambda Sigma and even the sluts of Tri Pi! I LOVE Casey, Cappie, Ash, Rusty, Calvin, Dale, Beccs, Evan, Beaver, Katherine & the rest of the cast! And I LOVE GREEK!

Season 4

PS. I wish an epilogue would be made. Hahaha. For certainty and closure.

P.S.S. I just realized if I am this sad that Greek ended, what more if One Tree Hill ends? Gosh, I don't even want to think about it!

P.S.S.S. This is the second American show that is dear to my heart that I have finished... first was The OC! T____T

P.S.S.S.S. Cappie's real name is Captain John Paul Jones! Hahaha! Say whuut?!

Open Thread #172 (@dramabeans)

I guess I'll just repost my open thread post @ dramabeans here just so I won't forget them :)


it’s open thread day again?! woot woot… but sadly i was kinda slacking off my kdrama watching duties this week hahaha. all because of the american series returns. T_T anyway… i was still able to finish Will It Snow For Christmas this week… yayy! I then moved on with YoonA’s You’re my destiny… and watched this week’s Dream High which is making me nervous with all of its hyemi-jinguk-samdong triangle… rawr.

Will it Snow for Christmas? is like the epitome of my WANT TO WATCH DRAMA. hehe. it’s light… kinda cheesy… little angst (well compared to Cinderella Unni and KSW’s Bad Love… i was mad all the time! deym.) and the loveline antagonists were moderately bad hahaha. I like the fact that by the end of the show I didn’t hate anybody… I think this is the first time for a melodrama… hahaha. (is it? hmmn.) anyways… all in all… i want to rewatch it especially SooHyun oppa’s parts hahaha… its my kind of thing… it has a good conflict and it was solved the most right and human way… not the way of scheming someone to be killed. hahaha. though i wasn’t fully satisfied with the ending since it wasn’t a close up… rawr… i think that it was the writer’s way of making us feel to want more of WISFC… which is dumb since it is already done… but if it is what that long shot meant… it really made me want to know more… hahaha. its like there is still something to be discussed or something to be explained fully. but what the heck.. i love it… the entire thing!

You’re my destiny… it’s my second time to watch its first couple of episodes since the last time… i lost my source to watch it so now im back with a faster internet connection and i can download its episodes… yayy! but like last time… i can still say… YoonA make an awesome job with this one… yayy! im still on episode 5 so I hope that it will continue and the story is getting exciting to my liking… hahaha. love it!

and my dearest DREAM HIGH… the duet by hyemi and samdong was awesome but where is my jinguk and hyemi?! rawr. please SHOW… give me some hyemi-jinguk love next episode since you ruined my week and pre-empted my episode 8… darn. but based on the preview… i feel im going to be ripped off by you SHOW! you and your scheming for a conflict… hahaha. i love conflict so that it will spice up the drama but what about my jinguk-hyemi loveline? just please atleast give me the assurance that they’ll end up together. haha. please? anyway… im looking forward for monday’s episode and i guess also tuesday’s because of IU and her diet success story hahaha. love it!

Spring Awakening: Ilse & Moritz

Here goes my FAVORITE scene in Spring Awakening The Musical... This was John Gallagher Jr. and Lauren Pritchard's version of Moritz and Ilse

[Don't Do Sadness]

Ilse: Moritz Stiefel?
Moritz: Ilse? You frigthened me
I: Did you lose something?
M: Why did you frighten me? Damn it.
I: What are you looking for?
M: If only I knew
I: What's the use of looking? I'm on my way home. Want to come?
M: I don't know. Where have you been keeping yourself?
I: Priapia, the artist's colony
M: Yes
I: All those old buggers, Moritz, are so wild, so bohemian. All they wanna to do is dress me up and paint me. That Johann Ferendorf, he is a wicked one, actually. Always knocking easels down and chasing me, dabbing me with his paintbrush. But then again that's men if they can't stick you with one thing they'll try another. Oh god Moritz, the other day we all got so drunk, I passed out in the snow. I just laid there unconsious all night! You know, I spent an entire week with Nohl, inhaling that ether of his then this morning he woke me, with a gun! set against my breast. One twitch he said and it's the end, really gave me the shivers, i tell you. But how about you Moritz? Still in school?
M: Well this semester, I'm through.
I: God, you remember how we used to run back to my house and play pirates? Wendla Bergmen, Melchior Gabor, you, and I?

[Blue Wind]

M: Actually, I better go
I: Walk as far as my house with me
M: and?
I: We’ll dig up those old tomahawks and play together, Moritz, just like we used to
M: We did have some remarkable times. Hiding in our wigwam
I: Yes. I'll brush your hair, curl it, set you on my little hobby horse
M: I wish I could.
I: Now, why don't you?
M: 80 lines of Virgil, 16 equations, a paper on the Hapsburgs.

[Don't Do Sadness/Blue Wind Mash-Up]

M: Good night Ilse.
I: Good night?
M: Virgil… the equations… remember?
I: Just for an hour.
M: I can’t.
I: Walk me at least.
M: Honestly, I wish I could.
I: You know, by the time you finally wake up, I’ll be lying on some trash heap.

[Ilse Leaves]

M: For the love of God, all I had to do was say yes! ILSE? ILSE! So, what will I say? I’ll tell them all… the angels, I got drunk in the snow, and sang, and played pirates. Yes, I’ll tell them. I’m ready now. I’ll be an angel. Ten minutes ago you could see the entire horizon. Now, only sparks, see? shooting stars… So dark… so dark… so dark.


I'm such a sucker for this part... I can watch this and listen to this over and over again. That mash up is really the best! :) This was the part that made me love the character of Ilse and want to kill Moritz myself... hahaha! I like how Ilse is so free spirited and wild at the same time, well not as smart as Melchior (with all that Nohl thing) but also not as naive as Wendla. And Lauren Pitchard killed that Blue Wind song. hahaha!

On the other hand... here's stupid Moritz! Now he just proved us all that he really is stupid... giving up and taking his own life... How stupid can he really get? (I used a lot of STUPID in there didn't I?). Good thing John Gallagher Jr. is a good singer and he nailed the song as well. LOL.

All in all... I just love SA... It is my dream to watch Lea and John and Jonathan and Lauren and the rest of the cast on stage and LIVE with this piece... Sater and Sheik really made a big time, awesome and a true Tony worth rock musical. They really deserve all those Tonys! Ah! Love love love SA...!

PS. I really can't watch Hanschen doing that 'thing' though... hahaha! Him doing Ernst was more tolerable :)

PSS. Thank you Frank Wedekind! LOL.

Avalon High (Movie - 2010)

Screw Plot Alteration!

I really loved the book which maybe why I am kinda disappointed with the movie. I loved everything about how Meg wrote it. I love how Will was King Arthur and how Allie was his Lady of the Lake. (It was really romantic! yeah yeah yeah... me and my crazy romance antics...) The relationship between Will and Lance and Jen weren't really shown that much in the movie. I don't think that I am biasing on this part since i think it's true! Lance is Will's bestfriend yet they only had a couple of scenes together... is that really your bestfriend Will? I mean... Lance and Jen were a big part of the story yet they seemed like extras in the movie! WTH!

I was also looking forward on seeing Allie floating all the time... and yet knowing that she is King Arthur (which is kinda stupid... still can't believe that they made that twist!), those floating parts were thrown out into the ocean since she is not the Lady of the Lake! AHHH! It's frustrating... I really think Allie floating all the time and her mom always onto her about it is kinda more interesting than knowing that Arthur can be reincarnated as a girl... (screw feminism! I am a female and yet I think it's stupid!)

AND! I think the yacht scene is much more FUN than having Marco be all goody-goody and a part of the Order of the Bear...

Anyway... I do am having so-so feelings with Miles... I kinda think having those psychic powers were cool. Allie having a friend was what the book missed out or not... she was friends with Will... and speaking of being friends with Will... I also want the part where Will barged into her house and stand on the boulder where a spider was on and just looking at Allie floating! See! The floating parts were awesome! hahaha. Yeah... I love the floating parts... because of Allie's floater, I want a floater as well. AHH!

AHH! (again.) Frustrating... but what the heck! I am not disney or the director or the writer... but still I AM FRUSTRATED WITH IT and I'm giving it a 1.5/5 well maybe 2/5... i love the final battle effects hahaha!

after watching review (posted @ dramabeans' open thread):

i just finished watching PASTA… and it was… uhm.. fluffy. hahaha. if to describe it in one world… FLUFF… lol. fluff all the way… hahaha… its a light drama that wont go into the deeper conflicts that could have happen if it was not a romcom (like having President become the SILENT CACTUS KILLER who will fight for his three year hidden love for maknae… or have LITTLE MISS GINSENG PASTA DESTROYER become the villain that everyone would hate…) but comon who would hate such a lovely face that is very considerate and such a weakling-when-it-comes-to-chep even though she’s an arrogant little missy? hehe.

but all in all… i love it… i’ve always wanted a love story that is so loyal from start till end. though i was quite unsure of the ending… hahaha… i kind of wanted to know yoo kyung’s new stove position… LOL.


I love the Italian Team! hahaha. hot and cute guys! LOL.

Paul Freeman - Tightrope

Tightrope Lyrics

by: Paul Freeman

i don’t wanna wait too long
and i don’t wanna break it down
the sun is sinking just like stone
and its hard to for me to breath
my mind is missing pieces of you
and fear and the pain have gone
but i’ll keep holdin’ holdin’

and im higher before than ive ever been
i was walking a tightrope can’t you see
that nobody wants to be alone
i was walking a tightrope
(walking a tightrope)
can you catch me?

if i let go
as far as i can see
the world is turning out of time
your gravity will pull me close
and its all ill ever need
don’t let me fall and break in two
cus all we are are skin and bones
so just keep holdin’
just keep holdin’ on

and im higher before than ive ever been
i was walking a tightrope can’t you see
that nobody wants to be alone
i was walking a tightrope
can you catch me?

if i let go
theres no way back
if i let go
your where i land
so here i go
cus i just wanna live
and i just wanna feel it

i just wanna feel it

and im higher before than ive ever been
i was walking a tightrope can’t you see
that nobody wants to be alone
i was walking a tightrope
can you catch me?
if i let go



I Love This Song! If i got addicted with Dashboard Confessional's Belle of the Boulevard because of One Tree Hill, I am going to be addicted with Paul Freeman's Tightrope because of the season finale of Make it or Break it. hahaha! Yeah. This song was featured on the last part of the season finale entitled "Are We Family?". Damon Young (Johnny Pacar) "sang" this song, well, based on my sources, it was lip synced. Oh well, this doesn't change the fact that I am falling for Johnny's role as Damon. hahaha! He's still awesome!

Selena Gomez will star on Monte Carlo!

Yayy! Another Selena movie to look forward to! Ramona and Beezus is on the way and another one is on the makes! I'm so happy for Sel, she's my favorite Disney Star now. I hate the fact that she and Demi are no longer friends... and to think they're both dating Nick and Joe, respectively now! hahaha. (Im assuming at Sel and Nick are an item but Demi already admitted that she and Joe are dating! So I'll just stick with my statement for the fun of it. :p)

Okay, Im going out of topic. Hahaha. Monte Carlo, that's the title of Selena's soon to be movie. And she's going to be starring with Leighton Meester! What are the odds? Two of my fave TV stars on one movie! :) I just hope this project pushes through. I'm definitely going to watch it.

article source/credits: Just Jared Jr.

Make it or Break it INSANITY! :)

i'll shout this to the entire world! im freaking out! I need the next episode for Make it or break it! Ah! the best season finale ever! For me, it topped OTH's season 5 finale (Lucas' Phonecall :p). I can't get over with what I just saw! CARTER CHOSE LAUREN! that is soo freaking great! ahhh! ahhh! ahhh! ahhh! (ahhh! x infinity) I love Kaylie but she's waaayyy too late! And I was freaking right! Carter was falling in love with Lau! ahhh! ahhh! ahhh! They are perfect for each other. Now, I really don't know what will happen to Kay and Lau's friendship but I don't care... CARTER CHOSE LAUREN! hahaha! yeah... i'll never get tired of saying that... they are like my favorite couple in this series! :p

And I soooo LOVE JOHNNY PACAR who plays DAMON! He's awesome and has a freaking great voice... i know I have been against him from the start but I am rooting for him and Em now. hihihi! And another freaking AHHH! Payson on bars! yayy! finally she's able to overcome her fear! I can't wait for her to steal Kaylie's title on the next championships! hahaha! She deserves her gold medal!

As for Kaylie... uhm. no comment. She blew her chances with Carter so she should suffer. But I hope she gets more endorsements and medals... that all she wants right?! ugh. I so hate her this episode but at the same time I like her hahaha... (yeah. im insane...) she's still the best... well next to Pay... LOL.

OMG. I freaking cried! hahaha! And I'm soo happy. I'm having mixed emotions for this. RAWR! hahaha! yeah. this is MIOBI InSaNiTy! :p

Movies Update!

Well, for the past week, I've had my share of movie marathons. Hahaha! And here are the movies that I've watched:

1.) Zombieland - a gross movie! hahaha! but it was funny and witty. I adore the characters and most especially got grossed out with the zombies! hahaha... but it was fun imagining myself (after the movie) being in zombieland. hahaha! but i want to be with Witchita and Little Rock and those two guys! hahaha! Rating: 4.5/5.0

2.) Love Happens - not really made a mark on me but it was a light movie. A very feel-good one. But I love Jennifer Aniston and Aaron Eckhart in this movie... they have chemistry :) Rating: 3.0/5.0

3.) Management - I kinda find this a boring movie. :( I made many pauses while watching this. hahaha! And in between pauses, I was able to watch other movies without cuts hahaha! But as usual Jen was awesome... and Steve Zahn was... how do I put this... stalkerish? hahaha... If ever I am on Jen's place... I would be scared shit of him! hahaha! But I think that was what was required in the movie and if it is... he succeeded! :) Rating: 2.8/5.0

4.) Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs - The movie that made me go hungry after! hahaha! I like the animation. It was polished. And the drawings of foods were cute. hahaha! I like the story too. Fit for an imaginative kid to watch :) 3.6/5.0

5.) Aliens in the Attic - cute movie. hahaha. I love Ashley. She's still my dear Sharpay but a little nicer. hahaha! And the kids were awesome as well. I love the story and those little aliens were so cute! :) Rating: 3.9/5.0

6.) Whip It! - I had fun watching this. When I found out that Drew Barrymore directed this, i kinda loved her more. hahaha! So I'm going to disagree with Grammer Spencer/Casey Cartwright(Greek) that Drew and directing don't go together. :p And Ellen Page was awesome! hahaha! I really love her pokerface. I also like the sport that they played. I would like to try it someday :) Rating: 4.1/5.0

7.) Fired Up! - the typical cheer flick... Could be the daughter of Bring it on series. hahaha! They even have a scene where the cheerleaders were watching Eliza Dushku and Kristen Dunst! hahaha! I was LOLed in that part. Obsessed cheerleaders! I was also amazed with the cameos of TV stars like Francia Raisa, Amber Stevens, Kayla Ewell and of course for the lead stars there's Daneel Harris and Annalyne Mccord! :) Rating: 4.0/5.0 (I just love cheer flicks! :p)

8.) Post Grad - oohh! the scariest movie in this list of movies I've watched recently. Hahahaha! Not because it's a suspense movie ('coz it's not!) but because I am scared for my own life after college. Alexis made me feel like I could never be successful in life. hahahaha! She's all perfect grades while I am not and she didn't get a job after college! What would that make me now? hahaha! But I've moved on (with this movie) and I'll just try my best to succeed in life :) The movie is kinda-real to life so it made a good impression on me despite making me scared for my future. Rating: 4.7/5.0

9.) Major Movie Star - A major blonde movie! If you hate dumb blondes... skip this one. But I love dumb blondes... hahaha so i liked it. The script wasn't that great and witty but the cast were still able to deliver their supposed to be roles. hahaha! I adore Olesya Rulin in this movie. I kinda missed Kelsi and seeing her in her role in the movie kinda made me miss HSM less :) She's still the Kelsi I know... clumsy yet full of potential, , but her name isn't Kelsi anymore hahaha! :) Jessica was still the same... I think she was better in Employee of the Month. :) But I like her here as well... :) She made me respect dumb blonde movies more. hahaha! Rating: 3.2/5.0

10.) The Spy Next Door - Jackie Chan is one heck of a great stunt person. Because of this movie I kinda missed Spy Kids and Agent Cody Banks. kekeke! I love watching spy movies... it always make me wonder what a spy life would be like... :) The story was kinda cliche... kids + soon-to-be-stepfather + mom who chooses kids over love + the action... but still it is worth the time :) And its funny and witty as well! Rating: 4.0/5.0

11.) UP - I had high expectations on this film. Unfortunately, like Enchanted, it didn't met my expectations. Maybe it's the fact that I am so amazed by the reviews about this film that when I finally watched it months after, my expectation is already so high that it wasn't able to reach such expectations. I enjoyed it, though. And I cried at the end. I think that just signified that even though I wasn't that thrilled by it, it still made a mark in my brain. That once I encounter 'scouting', Russell would come to my mind first. :) I also admire the love that Carl and Ellie had. Awh. Rating: 3.9/5.0

Kim Yuna: First Korean Figure Skater To Win An Olympic Gold!

My added addiction! Figure Skating! Yayy! All thanks to The Cutting Edge Series! hahaha.

Kim Yuna. South Korea. Newest Olympic Champion for Ladies' Singles Skating. She was a phenom! Her short program was perfect! She even beat her own record at the Worlds 2009 with a score of 78.50. Then she topped her Worlds final score with 228.56 points. Her long program was breathtaking. If you are new to figure skating, i mean watching such programs, you would think that each performance is the same, no difference, only the routine itself. But what made me say that Yuna was exceptional at my first time of watching figure skating is that once you watch her, her spirals and triples have this flowing effect, like it is effortless. Its beautiful to watch. And her triples are perfect, once she twists, its with the perfect form and its great to look at.

Yes. I adore this 1990-born girl (my birth year too!). Not only because she is a korean and I'm into korean stuff as of the moment, but because among all the reigning figure skating athletes now (eg. Mao Asada, Joannie Rochette), she is the best. :) She's the world's number 1!

Im so looking forward for her 2010 World Championships. Im sure she's gonna do wonders there as well. :)
