Who still Wants a VeronicaMars Movie? I do! I do!

1 Big lesson from the Wii: Buy a TV Screen Protector

Strangely enough, I was on a search for good CD burners out in the market (by good I mean it does the job, UI is easy and it's affordable), and I ended up checking out a site offering TV Screen protectors, an extremely novel and important invention that people decades ago might not have even considered creating.

You probably have the Wii Fit, a complete set of Guitar Hero World Tour instruments to rock out at the comforts of your home, but perhaps the most important companion to your Wii should be this TV screen protector.

Most of us are probably not strangers to the controversy the Wii brought a few months back, when many people had inadvertently exerted too much enthusiastic effort (bowling, swinging a bat, or hurling a grenade: you take your pick), and ended up smashing the TV screen instead. Granted that Nintendo had long rectified this mistake by offering better wrist grips on the Wii Remote, but why risk breaking your expensive TV when you can just buy a $119 screen protector and use it for the rest of your life?

For an additional $81, you can also buy a non-glare version, which will certainly help your eyes, especially if you plan to play Guitar Hero the whole day and the notes just keep scrolling up and driving you mad :P

You can check out the site right here for more details:

Kris Allen ROCKED at Disco Night

What the hell was I thinking, doubting Kris Allen just because it's Disco Night!!!

!!! Kris Allen's Santana-like rendition of Donna Summer's "She works hard for the money" was just amazing!!! The last part just gave me really good goose bumps.

American Idol 8: The Drama! 2 judges per performance mistake, Weird Lil Rounds Comment, etc

This week's American Idol Season 8 shows were chock full of drama and happenings that I felt compelled to write a blog post about it.

For starters, the director had this queer idea of having only 2 judges give their thoughts on each performance. The judges would alternate per performance - simon/paula first then kara/randy, and so on. It was in response to the huge problem AI has had for ages - not finishing on time.

For one thing, I'm actually quite shocked that at this point of the game, they still have this problem. There are less performances to judge on now, and the video cuts between the instructor (this week was Quentin Tarantino - a huge shocker for me! I didn't know he had a lot of knowledge in musical coaching!) and the AI contestant were not too long-winded.

I realized, however, that it may be in part due to the addition of the fourth judge, Ms. Artistry herself, Kara.

I think that having only two judges judge per peformance was a HUGE mistake, and cost points against a few of the contestants, most notably Kris Allen, whose performance was absolutely brilliant and soulful, but who sadly got a bad review from Randy. Simon had to comment the day after that he loved Kris' performance but the damage had been done - luckily, Kris didn't get into bottom 3 because of this costly mistake.

If the AI director really wanted to save on time, he should, personally use this strategy instead:

1. Have Simon judge BEFORE all the other judges
2. Have the other 3 judges talk ONLY IF their opinion is different from Simon's or they have something substantial to add on to it. By substantial, I do NOT mean:
- mentioning the word ARTISTRY
- mentioning the word DOG
- commenting about the song rather than the performer (see paragraph below)
3. Lessen Paula's stuttering - I don't know how they're gonna do this, but it's going to be a huge time saver, IMO

In other news, I was so utterly CONFUSED about Paula's comments on Lil Rounds - instead of judging her vocals and/or performance (which I believe Simon commented on perfectly), she just said that the song was a beautiful song composed by (insert name here). Huh?!

And then when Lil Rounds started defending herself (as she always does - seriously, it's getting very old and annoying already), Paula commends her and says something like "don't ever hold back" - which is needless to say, because Lil Rounds NEVER holds back on comments. If there is anything she is consistent on, it is her final say on her performance.

Meanwhile, Matt Giraud threw a less than perfect performance (but in my opinion, still a good performance none the less), and got cold reviews from Kara and Randy. I don't know if Simon and Paula would have helped him had they been given the chance to speak but Simon did say on the next day, when he performed again to plead for a save, that he wasn't as good that day as he was the day prior, so I'm guessing Simon might have somewhat liked Matt's initial stint.

The crowd was shouting for a save, the judges were discussing it longer than usual, and finally, Matt is given the only save the judges can give (Tears are shed, and the results episode became one of the most dramatic ones I've watched by far), putting Matt up in the book of AI world records as the first person to ever be saved AND as the most times saved by the judges, as he was also saved back in Wild Card round.

Which simply means that Matt has HUGE potential (believe me, try to listen to some of his studio versions, and you'd find out just HOW GREAT HE IS!). I only wish that he could be more consistent and choose better songs because it will be a dang shame if he didn't sail through to at least the top 4.

Simon ends the results night with a buzz kill, telling the contestants not to be so happy about Matt's save because 2 people were gonna go home next week and next week was going to be.... DISCO NIGHT.

Off the bat, I think Anoop is going to have the most trouble during this night, as I recall his Michael Jackson performance. I'm hoping Lil Rounds will be eliminated already, because she's really not listening to the judges and stepping up to the plate. I'm a bit afraid of how Kris is going to pull off Disco Night as well. I certainly hope he'll do good. He's got great talent so he should be able to do this right.

Can't wait for next week!

The Rapping Southwest Airlines Flight Attendant

I just saw this on BBC, and I thought it was the perfect and most fit way to convince passengers on the plane to listen to the guidelines. This Southwest Airlines flight attendant, named David Holmes, avoids boring factory - like instructions, and instead raps to you all that you need to know before you take off.


"This is Southwest Airlines, welcome aboard...!"

Wants to sneak inside a Honda Fit Factory

The name of the automobile game now is compact, compact, compact, and I have my eyes on this cute 2009 Honda Fit model! Really pretty, and has this sleek, high-techy exterior. I'm not really a car person, so I can't explain why I like it in terms of all those auto tech mumbo jumbo, but I must say that I really just like it in general :)

You can view more details about the Honda Fit along with Fit Factory warranty info, go to this link:

Now the thing is I don't have the budget to buy a car yet, so it's either I sneak inside a Honda Fit Factory and hope that one of them wakes up and chooses me (think Transformers, people) or I just wait patiently for a few more years :D

Veronica Mars Movie finally coming into Fruition?!

According to Rob Thomas, yes! The Veronica Mars movie is good to go! Rob Thomas got a lot of free time since his series, Cupid, got scaled back. The show will be set a few days before college graduation, which I personally think is a good time to start. I'm excited to find out what Rob has in store for us - as long as he writes the script then we obsessed VM fans can rest easy. I also hope to God that the original Veronica Mars cast will all be there!

Stay tuned and make sure you tell everyone about it!!! We definitely want this Veronica Mars movie to be a hit. Who knows, it might be a springboard to the continuation of the Veronica Mars TV Series.
