Hell Friday!

March 31, 2007 — 1 Comment

Ok, this last Friday sucked!

First, there is NO sign of episode 6 of ANTM8 coz YouTube sucks. Then, computer was supposed to arrive today, but it hasn’t and my uncle said maybe later in the night, it’s Saturday already and nothing… I also decided to format my cousin’s laptop… HP laptop. For some reason, it didn’t wanna accept and wipe clean the whole Hard Disk with a copy of XP Professional, so now I’m stuck with a useless HP laptop with only 2GB free. I have to wait for the freaking HP installation CDs now.

I was also trying to make a small network between the computers in my house, because I’m tired of running around when I want to print something from my laptop in the printer of the desktop. So that also blows!! I mean, it’s supposed to be so easy, but for some reason it just REFUSES to work properly. I have officially rebooted my machine over 10 times today. And the Microsoft Support Center? Yeah, not much support in there… It figures.

After all was said and done, I ended up having a chat with Mrs. Cow inside a bun. It turned out she was from Hamburg – actually, I learned some things today. First, that thing we, in Spanish, call “Gentilicios”, it’s called “Gentilics” or “Demonym”. I also learned that people from Croatia are not Croatians, but Croats, and that people from Hamburg are NOT Hamburgers, but Hamburgians!

There you go, tell other people!

Paparazzi, Paparazzi~

Why are they wrong? Why are they right?

In my humble opinion, both sides are not right. However, the paparazzi reasons are more sensible, than the silly “There’s something outrageous, illegal and immoral about all of that,” that Mr. Sunshine (haha, smile, Mr. Sunshine!) says in the following CNN articles.

Frank Griffin on defending.

Ken Sunshine on why they’re wrong.

I’ve already rant and rant about this same issue. Sometimes, yes, paparazzi get too far. Case and point, Natalie Portman in Argentina being pushed around, so they could get a clear shot of her face. Yeah, it blows. But agents should stop blaming the paparazzi, and start urging their clients’ fans to stop being interested in the damn things! Paparazzi are only doing their job, which has evolved from the insane interest people have on celebrities. I am even guilty of that! So I include myself in this insanity. However, I have stopped for a while now… so think about it.

If all the fans around the world stop looking at paparazzi pictures, there will be NO DEMAND on their pictures, making them FIND A NEW JOB TO PAY THE BILLS. This is no rocket science, nor the most effin’-taboulos new discovery.

So it all goes back to the people. Get it, Mr. Sunshine? It’s not the IMMORALITY of the paparazzi who hangs around the celebrity home, it’s the IMMORALITY of the fan who WANTS and CHOOSES to buy or search ANY of those images to mind YOUR CLIENTS’ businesses. But, hey! You live off of these fans who buy your clients’ products, watch your clients’ films, and listen to your clients’ music.

In the end, celebrities will either have to appeal to their fans’ good nature to leave them the EFF alone… or just effin’ accept this evolution of celebrity stalkers… and just give the paparazzi what your effin’ fans bloody want!

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. :)

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…

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!
