Glee, Masters of the Universe and Chicks...

Call it a miracle, but I decided to post a blog entry since I've always been online lately. (thanks to the unlimited surfin' by my network provider) While there are a lot of things I can talk about, I've decided to rant about the things that are recently just popped up in my head...

First off: the hit tv series GLEE. Pfft. Everybody seems to like the show. I mean, I do applaud the song choices and the way they sing it, but it's too effin' over-hyped. TV channel JACK TV are holding choir contests, dozens of tv commercials and the like. For me, it's like the movie TWILIGHT: everybody wants to know what the fuss is about, and every media head wants to cover it. GLEE is too (for me) gay. Not that I'm against gays, mind you , but the show is too girly for me. I prefer How I Met Your Mother (or himym for fans of the show) Besides, they compare it as a "High School Musical for Adults". Shouldn't you be waned that you are being compared to a kid's movie?

Also, I don't know about you, but I don't see why many people love waxing nostalgia on 80's cartoon He-Man and the Masters of the Universe. They've re-released the old toys and gived them the super-articulation of today, and a lot of collectors are snatching at it!!! It's like Conan the Barbarian for kids. Maybe it's the crazy-ass characters and their crazy-ass names (i.e. Mekaneck, Stratos) but I still don't see the appeal. Granted, I'm an 80's kid, and I like certain cartoons during that time period as well, but I prefer the 90's cartoons, like stick-figure cartoon Stickin' Around and Bucky O' Hare. Until fate would give it to me during my muses, I'll still be a confused idiot...
Finally, well, even if I already have a girlfriend, I'll still look at chicks. Hahaha.... I call it "man nature" I thank the heavens above for FHM, Facebook and that random chick that passed by during my dates with my girlfriend. Haha. As they say, "dont' hate the player, hate the game..."

My Past Addictions...

I’ve been meaning to write this down for a long time, but work, sloth and updating my deviantart page takes up most of my time. Besides, updating deviantart just takes a few minutes of my time. No need really to make my gears on my brain work that much. Then, after that I can settle for internet porn. Haha.

Anyway, what I’m discussing here are the hobbies or things I’ve been wasting my time and money on during my childhood up to now. I felt the urge to enumerate them…( I’m really a sucker for nostalgia) So I’ll list them down using the the level of education as a guide…

Kinder/Grade school- I love watching cartoons. Back then we had no cable, so I had to settle on some great to crappy shows. Some of the best are at TV 5. I watch tv all time that I have trouble with my studies. Especially Math. I also loved reading books about the solar system and dinosaurs. I also played with my toys bought by my dad and the plush toys that my dad won at the then-famous Whimsy’s Place at Shangrila-Plaza. Even back then I’m not a social person, so I always play with myself and my sister. It was pretty hard sometimes because I always get verbally abused by my classmates. So those things are like my escape from the harsh world (cue violin music)

High school- Even though I already started playing videogames via the Sega Genesis (instead of the usual Famicom) the original Playstation took most of my younger years. Why? Games were a lot cheaper. Genesis cartridges are 700p each. For only 100php you get 3 Playstation games. I also burned most of my money on buying videogame magazines. My favorite is Electronic Gaming Monthly, or EGM for short. I was also one of the people that got hooked on the anime craze, thanks to the crazy ads from GMA 7. That is also the first time I experienced going to a convention. The people there are crazy, I tell you. Then I became a fan of Linkin Park, and thanks to them I got more engrossed with music than ever. Heck, I rapped "Papercut" at our stage in High school.

College- Playing PS2, reading and buying magazines and playing with friends at the computer shop (or called Internet Shop/CafĂ© ) took most of time in college, besides studying , of course. This was also the time I opened my eyes to the female anatomy and male hormones, thanks to FHM. I would buy them at first because of the curvaceous beauties, but got engrossed with the content as well. Heck, I even bought them to class as well. Yeah, I’m a perv. I also dabbled in collecting newer releases of toys, or I call “collectibles”.

Work/Real Life- Call me a late bloomer, but this was the time that I really got into drinking beer with my colleagues after work. I also got more into collecting different kinds of “collectibles”, ranging from superheroes to small-scale cars. I also updated my wardrobe by buying lots of statement shirts thanks to the money I earn from work.

So there, whew. Took a while, but I did it. So, what’s your addiction?
