This past week has been really really busy, while designing CD Artwork, re-programming a website, talking to clients for future projects, writing my series pilot, trying to write my short film, and designing a book. *phew*

I feel tired just thinking about it all…

It seems like a lot… but not a lot of money, so it kinda sucks.

Anyway, I took some time off to watch ANTM8, the episode was OK. I felt sad for Jael, but holy crap~ Britanny’s photo kicked ass. I loved her expression, it was great~ I was also glad to see Sarah doing good… she had great eyes in her picture. :)

Enjoy,

I wanted to rant about this on Thursday, but I totally forgot about it. So, Peru sucks… television-wise. I mean, I would love to be legal about all sort of stuff… for example, watching TV shows on TV, but I can’t do it, so I watch it on YouTube because I’m not willing to download 300MB for an episode. I can’t watch shows that I want on TV, because they either take 6 months for Sony Entertainment (in the case of America’s Next Top Model) to bring the new episodes, or they NEVER bring the episodes. So, networks, SUCK IT UP!

Recently, DirectTV just set up their signal in Peru, but they pretty much show what Cable Magico is showcasing in its regular lineup, and it doesn’t include channels like ABC, NBC, CBS, FOX (America), FX (America) or CW Network. About 8 or 9 years ago, Cable Magico used to have ABC, NBC, CBS and The WB, which was GREAT because I used to be able to watch the episodes of my favorite shows the day they premiered in the States, and I didn’t had to wait for Latin American networks to subtitle them. For the past 7 or 8 years, I haven’t been able to.

What’s the point in me getting DirectTV, or any other Satellite TV Company when I will ALWAYS have to wait for shows because they don’t buy the rights to American broadcasting companies. However, if they DID give me the chance to get these channels, or channels from Canada, or the UK or all over the world, I would totally get Satellite. Right now, it doesn’t bring ANY benefits to me.

So, here’s the other problem~ YouTube keeps taking things out. You fucking bastards! (I said this was a rant!) – Ever since Google bought it, it’s been sucking more and more. One really fun video of Anya as a bunny got suddenly removed, and the account of the user who did it was removed- that was seriously not breaking any copyrighted material, that fan had all the right to do that video. I know of other 2 or 3 users whose accounts got deleted.

So, networks, if you don’t want your material to be watched online because it hasn’t aired in one region, then start airing your effing episodes everywhere, so people, who watch your show and are not able to get your signal, don’t watch on YouTube. And continuing with the CW Network example, you effing bastards – just send the signal to Cable Magico (and other cable companies around the world), so they can broadcast the same day. It WON’T get rid off the problem, but it will decrease the amount of people who watch online. Just like what happens with movies that open worldwide… There’s still online files, but there’s also people around the world who go to the movie and watch (unless your movie sucks) – but even IF YOUR SHOW SUCKS, they don’t pay to watch it… so there will still be people who will watch it.

For instance, I wanna effing watch Dirt… by FX – BUT, Cable Magico shows FX Latin America~ SO, they are not even mentioning Dirt… and I don’t even know if FX Latin America will show Dirt, because sometimes all programs jump around networks here. For example, since there was no The WB, Buffy used to be shown on FOX… but Dawson’s Creek was on Sony Entertainment Television. Other examples are… Nip/Tuck that airs on FOX, instead of FX… Lost airs on AXN, and According to Jim (who also belongs to ABC, the same as Lost) airs on Sony… and CSI airs on Sony, while CSI NY and CSI Miami air on AXN~ so many crazy jumps and changes.

There is no effing Dirt, no Ugly Betty, no ANTM, no Hell’s Kitchen, no Iron Chef, no new episodes of Nip/Tuck, Desperate Housewives just beginning season 3 (which I began watching 6 months ago in Canada).

Other channels that we should get… Food Network, MuchMoreMusic, Showcase and Bravo!

Ok, rant’s over.

The Eyes Rant

I have been listening and re-listening to Marit Larsen’s album (*hint* you can still listen to some of the songs in the music player section) – I bought it almost a year ago, but for the last week I have been hearing 3 or 4 times a day. It just seems so short! It lasts no more than 40min, so when it ends, it leaves you wanting more :P

Anyway, *Amy goes to turn on her disc reader and listen to the CD* – Shoot, even talking about the album makes me wanna listen to it. OK, so I have been listening to it, and felt like doing a portrait of Marit. This is officially my 2nd portrait, and my 3rd digital painting, and my 4th digital artwork – and God! It’s so difficult, I wouldn’t even dare doing it for real with real painting and with real canvases. More power to the real painters out there~

After 13hrs, and maybe 15 plays of the CD, I came out with a pretty decent painting… but it’s always the EYE that screws me over. And I didn’t even have two eyes to screw over like my digital Sooz, which you can see on my DeviantART account. Anyway, here it is…

Marit Larsen Portrait

A night or two ago, I watched the last episode of Reba. It’s so sad that such a fun show had to end, especially when there’s a lot of crap coming out. I can’t exactly tell you when I first saw Reba, but I truly began watching it on reruns while I was living in Canada. However, I couldn’t continue watching reruns, because I don’t think they show it in Latin America. A month or two ago, I saw it on TV – it was Sunday at 3.30pm on Fox, but I didn’t find it there the next week.

So I was in the boards at imdb.com and saw a topic saying that it was over, they also were kind enough to post a link to watch the two-part episode. Thank you for that.

I truly haven’t watch all the episodes, but I would watch every time I ran into it. CMT played reruns Mon-Fri at 6.pm – It was awesome. The characters were all funny, from Dan and Cheyenne’s retarded parenthood adventures, to Reba’s ironic comments on her ex-husband and her husband’s wife, Barbara Jean… to Barbara Jean’s retarded faces and comments, and Kyra’s smart-ass comments. It was a good family show that will probably share space in the hearts of people, just like shows such as Family Ties, Growing Pains, Step by Step, and Full House.

Come on! I still watch re-runs of Growing Pains on Nick@Nite at 3am, alongside The Addams Family, The Munsters and Bewitched! And if I stay later… I get to watch re-runs of Step by Step, and Full House. Hahaha – That’s how bad prime time television is nowadays!
