Are you a Gleek?

Recently my roomie's got me watching a TV show called Glee, a Fox production that started out this year. Wikipedia tells me that it's a musical comedy-drama. It seems to be rather popular now in the States but I'm only at episode 5 at the moment (I've got to get more episodes from her...)

Anyway, Glee, to put it simply, is a musical (I love musicals!) mixed with a little Scrubs/Ugly Betty type of humour and a little angst (which seems out of place honestly, maybe it's because I don't know if this is going to turn out as a joke?) I haven't fallen into the Glee bandwagon yet but I'll just see how many more episodes of this I can take... Maybe it's because I'm more used to shows with a different and less darker humour like Chuck and Gossip Girl. I'm also watching True Blood (but I ain't watchin' that for the humour, y'all. *wink*).

(L-R):Cory Monteith, Dianna Agron and Lea Michele

The Things I Like About Glee:
1) They sing popular mainstream songs! That's right, they don't just sing the half-assed piano tunes, they sing well-loved songs. (e.g. Take a Bow, Single Ladies and loads more)
2) Cary Monteith as the adorable, often confused jock. &hearts
3) When they quit yapping and start singing/dancing!

Things I Do NOT Like:
1) Jane Lynch (Why why is this woman here?! She disturbs me.)
2) The teacher, whatsisname.

Overall, the cast probably put in a lot of work practicing, dancing (sometimes) and singing for each episode, it makes me wonder how long they'll last doing this. I love all musicals and I will probably keep watching this just for the musical bits, and hopefully bit by bit I'll get used to the characters. (My roomie's gonna kill me if she sees this post, some things are sacred and I suspect Glee is too. Exhibit A: Neil Gaiman. Exhibit B: Terry Pratchett.)

Of course that is not all of what Glee has to offer. If you like gut-busting lines and don't mind minor displays of drama/angst, then you should try this out (if you haven't already)! A little bird tells me that there's this other great show called GRΣΣK [ABC] floating around which centers around Cyrus-Rhodes University and its sororities and fraternities. (But with 3 seasons out already, are you kidding me?! Maybe in my hols.) ^^

*runs off to watch my kdramas*

Okay, then I won't watch it then... 3 seasons is a chore to download... Unless I can mooch it off someone. :)

Funniest Malaysian Names!

I laughed out loud for 10 straight minutes reading this old post at Mr. Badak's website! If you must know, I was searching for the meaning of mulau (crazy in Kadazan) because I wasn't quite sure of the meaning (I'm a poor excuse for a Kadazan), and I stumbled across this. It's not even the post itself (about an unfortunate man named Mulau bin Burit) that was the absolute funniest, it was the commenters! Teachers and government workers come across the funniest names...

Imagine being named...

Lee Je Hoon to Belt Some Notes for Paparotti!

How cute is this piece of news? Everybody's favorite actor gone for military service, Lee Je Hoon, is acting as a gangster who wants to sing! Jang Ho (Lee Je Hoon) has a talented voice, but because of his poor family background, he became a gang member. Nevertheless, Jang Ho still likes to sing and desperately wants to become a singer. He enlists the help of Sang Jin (Han Suk Kyu) who used to be a well regarded performer in Italy, but is now a music teacher at a local high school in a small city. He's not the most passionate of teachers. Kang So Ra plays Sook Hee, a classmate who has a crush on Jang Ho. 
This movie is based on the true story of Kim Ho Joong, who first appeared on Korean TV Show, Star King, on July 18, 2009. During the program, Kim Ho Joong surprised people with his vocal abilities and also made people cry because of his back ground story. He grew up as a troubled kid who joined gangs, but because of his grandmother he began to sing in earnest. Stills and the …

Gawky Poses People Do Best Forgotten

Ever seen a pose that you thought looked terrible even though the person doing it is a mega hot fiiiiiine piece of...well, you get my drift. I'm sure if I asked a guy, they would have plenty of other suggestions but here are just three that occurred to me while typing out this post.

1. The Angry Chicken Pose

E.g. Sohee from the Wonder Girls (middle girl) - BTW their new album WONDER WORLD is out! Check it out! :)

I have never seen anyone pull this off and still look attractive. (Also known as The Stomach Ache or Pelvic Thrust)

2. Woman Draped on a Car Pose

No offense to auto babe ladies everywhere, but I can never find this not tacky. It must be difficult to twist yourself in a sultry pose on a heap of metal (something I, a mere mortal, can never hope to achieve) and I'm glad that at least you're being paid for it.

3. Cutesy Asian Poses

There's a whole multitude of these but I'm pretty sure you're familiar with the like. E.g. Peace Sign (I'm totally guilty of this…
