Craig Ferguson interviews

I was just bored one early morning, and I searched for some videos to watch on YouTube. I started with Craig Ferguson’s monologues, and later watched his interviews on The Late Late Show. I may have been slow on these video clips, but they are as hilarious as ever.

This one is my favourite, him interviewing Rupert Grint, who plays Ron Weasley in the Harry Potter movie franchise.

“What do you mean the magic isn’t real?” LOL!

For the sake of it, here are another two clips for your Monday blues.

With Gerard Butler. Like the accent he put on about him and Craig were actually from Long Beach. I know it’s stupid, but I’m still amazed how actors can put on their accents and take it off so easily. LOL.

This one’s with Piper Perabo.

I love Craig Ferguson. He is hilarious.

UB’s second season rumours

I am such a freak. I have been reading up on season two of Ugly Betty. Well, rumours of the new season anyway. Nyeh.

So don’t read the rest of it if you are uninterested or you don’t want to know yet.

I read, here, that there’s going to be a new love interest for Betty other than Henry. And he’s going to be played by Freddy Rodriguez! Here’s a snippet:

And what of the ill-fated love birds Betty and Henry? In one of the final scenes, he was headed to Arizona, along with his evil, possibly pregnant, girlfriend Charlie. “Well, there is a pretty good chance that Henry comes back,” revealed Christopher Gorham, his portrayer.

“I can’t tell you how he comes back. I can tell you that you cannot miss the first five minutes of the first episode of season two. It’s one of the funniest scenes that we have shot to date. It’s a Betty, Henry, Charlie scene. It’s subtitled. It’s really incredible.”

I am totally interested about the first five minutes now. LOL. Subtitled? I imagine it to be in nerd/dork language that certain nerds like me won’t understand, let alone the rest of the world? Haha, okay, that might not even be possible. But I’m excited!

Someone’s promised to burn it onto CDs for me as soon as it comes out, so yeay!

Unfortunately, there is a definite possibility that Santos is dead. Something about the guy who plays him, Kevin Alejandro, is on a totally different network now. Pity. He was starting to grow on me, what with him wanting to marry Hilda and doesn’t care how his son couldn’t even throw a football.

I might just overdid it with the consumption of my favourite seasonal fruit, durian kuning. Currently having a hard time swallowing. IT HURTS. What do they call that anyway? I just know the one in Malay, they call it sakit menalan. Any ideas?

Should head to bed now, going to visit dad tomorrow. I haven’t visited in what feels like ages. I really miss him.

Comments will be replied to soon! :D

New eye candy!

Christopher Gorham (who plays Henry in Ugly Betty) is hot! And funny!

Though he’s married for seven years and have two kids.

My take on Ugly Betty

Ugly Betty didn’t spark any interest of mine when it first came out. I’m always late to jump on the bandwagon, because I prefer to have the whole season out on DVD so I don’t have to wait every week for a new episode. Okay, I’m not always like that, but I was with Ugly Betty because I couldn’t be bothered.

But.. One glorious day, which usually falls on the day that pay is out, I wasn’t particularly spoiled for choice when I paid a visit to Joey Joe, my favourite DVD store. I spotted the complete first season of Ugly Betty, and I thought, “Hm, why not?” So I did.

And I only finished watching Ugly Betty’s yesterday.

September 27th can’t come any sooner! Second season airs on that date, and trust me, I’ll be braving the Trojan viruses this time around just to see what happens in the first episode. By that, I meant downloading torrents, of course. But I’m going to ask around first before I start this bad habit again. ;)

(Warning: Either hate me for posting them up, or stop reading from this point on. Ugly Betty spoilers ahead.)

So, all right.. I’ve never had favourite episodes before on any TV series, but on Ugly Betty, I fell in love with episode 21, Secretaries’ Day. I have to say it’s mostly influenced by Henry Grubstick. Don’t you think he and Betty are adorable?!

Image above was a scene from Secretaries’ Day. When he was semi-conscious, saying the three little words. I practically shrieked when he did that! Romance on TV and in the movies, in my opinion, rarely warm the heart anymore because it seems like they are.. I don’t know, nothing new.

But when Henry, played by Christopher Gorham — trust me, this isn’t the last time his (character/real) name will be mentioned on this post, said those words, he seemed so sincere albeit semi-conscious.

Another favourite episode of mine is the season finale, 23rd episode, East Side Story. The goodbye made by Henry to Betty when he decided to move with Charlie back to Tucson! I CRIED! This season finale has to be THE season finale of all season finales of TV!

This is my second favourite scene, where Betty confessed in the copier room.

Awwww! Cute, dorky and sweet all at the same time!

And my most favourite, where Henry said goodbye (which, hopefully doesn’t get taken down), from the scene that I so wished didn’t happen, but did, but in the end was one of the things that made the finale great.

I was so sad he was leaving! Responsible, yes, but still sad! For Betty. They were just perfect for each other! Then again, like Betty said, “.. it would’ve been too easy..”

So then, based on my obsession with the Betty-Henry relationship, I made a little research on the good ‘ol Internet, and found out from here that from season two onwards Christopher Gorham (Henry) will become core regulars in the show. YEAY! Which means, it’s not really goodbye.

By the way, here’s Christopher, who plays the most adorable geek that is Henry.

“It’s just something I know.”

If I had to rate this TV show, based on this one season, I would give it five stars out of five! Love it. Don’t care what you think, I LOVE IT.

Okay, you know what? I’m going to throw in another video that make me fall in love with Henry (the character and the guy playing him!)

Sigh.. :))

E! Extras’ Top 10 Kissable Men

I’ve seen a fair share of E! Extra Top 10s, just watched Top 10 Kissable Men, and I went, “WHAT?!”

The only men I think is kissable, is #8. Continue reading

Today

I cannot get this song off my mind either. If I were to have a playlist of two songs, it’ll be this and Beyonce’s Listen. This one’s Joe’s If I Was Your Man, by the by. I have it as my message tone every time I get a text. I have it as a YouTube video on my Friendster profile. I put it on on repeat before I go take a shower so that when I’m done, I’ll be greeted by Joe’s voice, or the song’s beats.

[odeo=http://odeo.com/audio/11265693/view]

It is quite addictive. Or maybe just me.

Anyway. Just finished a show about less than an hour ago, and I had fun. Another one of my firsts in this line of work, and I have to say, it was a lot of fun and laughter. Especially the foot being the exact same measurement as the length between your wrist and elbow. Try it. You’re bound to be amazed. I was. Embarrassingly, I was, because I had this look on my face. Aaron said it was priceless, and I choose to believe him.

[Warning: American Idol 6 spoiler ahead. Just in the next paragraph. You can skip to the next one, it’ll be free from spoilers. Hee.]

Looking further back before my graveyard shift, I watched American Idol tonight. Who would’ve thought, right? All this time I thought Maroon 5 is brilliant when performing live. I was wrong. Hahaha, okay, I’m kidding. I’m a bit surprised by the outcome, but from now on, I’m officially a Blaker girl. Like I mentioned to a friend, I wouldn’t mind a Jordin win.

Played netball with the girl friends in the afternoon, and I was a bit tired after that. I hadn’t played in ages. Three weeks, me thinks? Pictures soon, but not now.

Graduation rehearsals were yesterday and the day before, and I have pictures of those as well. But again, not now. I’m exhausted. Need. Rest.

Thanks for reading! :D

Making a tiny comeback

Did anyone watch American Idol results show tonight?

WARNING: BIG, FAT SPOILER AHEAD.

(I’m not cutting my posts anymore because it gets cut off in RSS feeds as well. Wouldn’t want that now, would we?)

How absurd was the results show? Beside the fact that Sanjaya Malakar is still in the competition, how can Gina Glocksen be out?! She was one of the better performances. Even if she was in the bottom two, I think Haley Scarnato should’ve went. Or Phil Stacey and his eyebrows. And Sanjaya should have been in the bottom three, not the middle three. Thank goodness I was spared the information about which spot in the middle three he was in. I hope it wasn’t the top middle three, or the middle middle three. Haha, what am I on about? I just want him to be in the bottom middle three.

About the performances on Wednesday night, I was bored with it. But I stuck through every performance, and I have to say, it was pretty hard. All I did was let it stay on channel 70, and I’d do something else. I wouldn’t concentrate. Is American Idol losing its edge? Or have I just lost interest? I want to see the contestants perform really famous songs so that I’d be familiar with them.

Last week was better than this week. They should get people like Gwen Stefani to be their mentors more often. I wish American Idol contestants would perform more current songs. I know, this week was classic American songs night, but Gina Glocksen sang a song that non-Americans (and the young) would know very well! Psch. Whatever. Hopefully, next week would be good. I’ll keep you updated if I read anything on AI.

Anyway.. I missed last week’s results show and my mom has been making me regret it because Sweet Escape is this household’s favourite song of the now (including my dad because he’s a fan of Akon.) So I was looking through the pictures, and what is this? Why is he standing like that? Is he really dating Alaina Alexander, now? Haha, tipunya kali.

Oh, hellew.

Just kidding. (Wouldn’t want to repeat a minor Poklen mistake.)

Oh! So I found a video of Gwen Stefani’s performance with Akon.

I have to say this, as wobbly as she sounds sometimes when singing live, she’s one of my favourite live singers.

Moving on from my thoughts on American Idol, MRS is coming — it is this Saturday evening, and my one main concern is if someone else is coming in with a similar dress on as myself. I thought, “I should have made a custom-made dress instead of buying one.” I never, have I ever felt like this about a dress before. I mean, what would I need a dress for?

But now, I apparently do. I feel that it’s sort of like a prom night, but with different activities happening. LOL. This could well be my first and last prom, if it is even close to one. Haha. Never usually have motivation to attend such things, but nearly everyone in the CIS department is excited about it, and it’s infectious. Serious.

Moving on.. My right knee has been hurting for two weeks now, but I have kept quiet about it. With my mom anyway. Whenever I tell her there’s something wrong with me, she worries a lot. But last night, I finally told her. Although, I did tell a little white lie. I said it has been hurting for a week. What? I just didn’t want her to worry.

The downside to that was, well, she wouldn’t let me play netball this afternoon. She actually gave me the mean eye last night when I started my “but’s” just so I can convince her to let me play. Blah.

I think this post is getting too long now. Post again soon. Toodles!
