PROMOS IS OVER. I'M GOING TO DO THE FOLLOWING OVER THE NEXT FEW WEEKS:
Amazing Race totally pales in comparison to Survivor. A typical aged couple got eliminated. YAWN. And the number of athletic teams are dwindling, perhaps the producers would like to see an unorthodox team winning the grand prize.

2) Hot N' Cold - Katy Perry
3) Time To Pretend - MGMT

Eliminated today are: The whiney teenager and the slowest-moving human being.
"It really doesn't make sense to me that they decided to keep Gillian, who's like a hundred and five, and me, who's 24, and completely fit.." - Michelle, the whiney teenager on Gillian, the slowest-moving human being as quoted by GC.
Something cool about this season is that it's not shot in High-Definition. Well, as usual, they started off the show by having the schoolyard-picking system, with the slowest moving creature (left. She's called Gillian) and a physics teacher alternating their picks. Right from the get-go, you could see which team is gonna dominate: The team with young, funky, and cool people (Kota tribe) VS a bunch of frumpy dorks and mommas (aptly summarized by Michelle from the Fang tribe).
I highly foresee this being a Koror-Ulong one-sided thing, with like 8 ppl from Kota and 2 ppl from Fang making it into the merge. Who I think's gonna make it far (clockwise from top left): Charlie, Marcus, Jacky and Corrinne (not in picture. The one in pink's ). I believe this season's gonna be greatttt.
And I'm so glad Channel 5 is still efficient in televising Survivor.

Louis is going to type everything in this post over the next week till his Lit paper ends.
22nd September: General Paper
I just checked definitions of the vocab words:
Conclusion: LOUIS IS GOING TO GET 1/5 FOR HIS VOCABULARY AND HE IS ON THE VERGE OF KILLING HIMSELF.
Some important results for the 60th Primetime Emmy Awards (This year's results are bad so you don't get to see many here)
Outstanding Reality-Competition Program: The Amazing Race
23rd September: Economics
"Malign me of backstabbing? Well, that's what you get now." Gossip Girl rocks.
24th September: Mathematics & Geography [DEATH]
Ok, and this colour-coding thing for Othello is pissing me off. My whole book is in yellow, now then you tell me can colour-code? Whatever, not like I'm going to refer to it during the test. I think i'll just flip thru it like twice at most LOL (we only have an hour to write the essay thanks).
Omg, I got to say, Britain's got Talent is way better than America's got talent. Just watched the winning performance by Britain's got talent winner, 14-year-old George Sampson, a street dancer. He is DARN COOL. Like hello, imagine a Sec 2 student dancing like that.

OMG I ACTUALLY POSTED THIS IN MY BLOG IN OCTOBER 13, 2005.
HOW FREAKING IRONIC. and i think my figure of speech was quite funny last time.
Oh, the trans in ANTM is out. at last they realized she isn't that good after all.
AND PROMOS ARE OVER!
1) We Cry - The Script
20 September 2008
Just when you thought the days of Janet Jackson's wardrobe malfunctions were over. Well, she's back to haunt us. Presenting to you... The Triple-Threat.
It gets rather disturbing when you realize that Promos are 2 days away.
It gets even more disturbing when you realize that freedom is just 9 days away.
The most disturbing of all, however, is that Chris Crocker has a new song.
*Covers ears with sound-proof pillows*
P.S Britney's album's releasing on December 2, her 27th birthday. And I heard a snippet of her first single, Womanizer. Sounds great, she has truly found her niche.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY KORKOR!

"The worst global financial crisis since the Great Depression forced the Federal Reserve and central banks in other countries to pump billions of dollars into the world's banking system in a urgent bid to stop further damage." - Reuters.
News that the top gun for AIA quit today. Guess that didn't help ease the nerves of the nearly-hyperventilating Singaporeans. The world is in chaos (credit crunch, melamine milk, malaysia/thailand politics) , and watching the news really doesn't help cajole you into sleep. Oh man, why am I talking like a pessimistic modernist.
On a lighter note, Survivor Gabon and The Amazing Race is premiering next week.
P.S. There's a contestant in Survivor who's part of the 2004 Olympic 4X400m relay Gold-medal team. Crystal Cox, wonder if that rings a bell to anyone.
ANTM11 is starting to get exciting, with the contestants undergoing whackadoodle makeovers. There's like one black contestant left in the final 9, something very rare since Tyra usually supports her sistas. The variety this season has been pretty diverse though, I must say.
"He's like Simon Cowell, with a Pulitzer! I can't be Jordin Sparks good; I have to be Kelly Clarkson good, Miss Independent!" - Ugly Betty on her evil lecturer. LOL.

The guy on the right, Dan Gheesling -- he had an awesome gameplay throughout the entire season [Yes I've been watching the past 29 episodes]. He's an even better strategist than Todd from Survivor: China (whom I thought was brilliant enough). Dan, who became half a million dollars richer, won by a 7-0 landslide victory over his overshadowed ally, Memphis.
He backstabbed some people to advance further, and was even called Judas by some a rather cranky old man who came in 3rd (he ultimately voted for him purely based on gameplay despite their really strained relationship). Despite that, eventually everyone voted for him because they were convinced by the reasons he gave for his sometimes-erratic decisions. Top it with some eloquence, charm and wit, he managed to sway the entire jury to his side. One heck of a player.
Watched the 50m swim by our homegrown talent Yip Pin Xiu. Truly inspirational. In fact, these athletes put in as much, if not, more effort than any Olympian. It was a great display of determination and tenacity, and it's even more touching when you see the Singaporean flag being hoisted above the flags of Britain and China.
Made rather good progress today. Completed Hydro Geog, finished half of Physical Geog, read Othello till Act 3. Shall proceed with Population studies tomorrow. Spending an entire day at home is rather boring, especially when you hear the word 'AIG' surfacing around 74 times on the news, and all the speculation of super-kiasu Singaporeans queueing up outside AIA to cancel their policies. Oh, it was only till today that I realized AIA was a subset of AIG. (heeh)
Just listen to the last 6 seconds. The whole stadium booed.
Actually it's pretty darn freaking stressful to sing in front of like 10 million people.
But just look at how Beyonce/KellyClarkson/CarrieUnderwood/JordinSparks/JoJo pulled it off so beautifully perfectly, and you'll see why Kat DeLuna should just 'Whine Up'.
Ok, this is THE BOMB. WATCH WATCH WATCH.

"He who does not weep does not sing.""Grief is like the ocean; it's deep, and dark, and bigger than all of us.

I'm jealous of him. Because i see how his absence has afected the people who knew him, so I knew he mattered tothem. I knew he was loved." Haley's student
Ok if you only have time to spare for one show, go with One Tree Hill. Because it is one of the absolutely best shows simply because it is a show dealing with real-life issues, no exaggeration, little sex/kissing/hollywood extremities.
Gossip Girl is like the best complement to OTH. It's a total no-brainer show where almost character gets bitch-slapped or backstabbed because of some character's jealousy of the intimate relationship that couple shares. It's about the friendships that shift almost all the time (you seriously wonder if true friendship is a feasible concept) and it's about the things which people do without thinking that get them into the trouble. As you know, the things that you do have consequences in this really intertwined and complex world.
Visit http://cwtv.com/thecw/style-gossipgirl-c and you'll pretty much get what I mean.
SPEAKING OF THE CONSEQUENCES OF YOUR ACTIONS...
Life's been a bitch recently.
Why can't everyone be compelling enough to do their allocated workload diligently?
Well, apparently some *cough cough hint hint choke choke* people don't share the same POV as others.
They don't realize that people actually do have issues working with them, simply because they don't fulfill the simple requirements of being a good group member!
and now you say you have difficulties finding teammates.
...OH, karma got you. SURPRISE!
Wake up or you're gonna get stuck in those filthy ditches which no one hopes you'll end up in!!!
P.S No, don't get me wrong this isn't happening to me. JUST AN OBSERVATION!

Lucas Cruikshank is the web producer and creator of Fred, a web-based show on YouTube. The show has received international recognition for its popularity and has led its creator to commercial success
Cruikshank describes Fred as "A six year-old with anger management issues and an alcoholic mom who's not supposed to be using her video camera to post videos." He lives with his alcoholic mother, who is currently in rehab and is never seen, only heard in her manly voice, with the exception of "Fred On Halloween." Fred has a crush on a girl named Judy who hates him a lot. Fred usually says that he and Judy are meant for each other because they both have "great bodies"(even though in "Fred Goes Swimming", he says he is uncomfortable with his body) Judy likes a boy named Kevin, who is a bully to Fred. According to Fred Kevin is fat and stupid/has a short memory span. Fred frequently mentions his "Zipit" personal messaging device and IM's to both Judy and Kevin. In Season 2, his Grandma was taking care of him while his mother was in rehab for a couple of weeks. Now she is back from rehab. Lucas wears the same t-shirt in each episode of Season 1 claiming it to be the only one he has, however in Season 2 the same shirt is now red, due to his Grandma ruining it in the laundry.

Presenting to you a compilation of notes of Econs, Lit and Geog. I feel greatly accomplished today.
Right now, I'm only fully done with Econs. Got to start reading up on the different periods (Edwardian, Modern, dunno what else) for Lit, start recognizing which Owen poem is which, read Othello once more to refresh my memory, start memorizing my Physical Geog notes convincingly, and do more Math.
ANYWAYS, Britney might be performing at the VMAs after all. This is a video of her rehearsing one of her newest tracks "Underground". She certainly looks like she's gotten back some of her old awesomeness.
Have you seen small kids in shopping centres recently, playing around with the laser-animated thing that's projected on the floor? It's seriously quite entertaining to see them stomp their feet and screaming at the top of their heads as they try to propel cars/destroy buildings/kick soccerballs/create fireworks with their feet.
This form of public nuisance certainly serves as a marginal social cost to sane, civilized citizens like me. =D (yes, I applied an Econs concept LOL.)
----------------------ok this was long due. I think the curve's quite reflective: I was slacking the first 2km, slowly built up with my peak around the mid-distance, and after that I just deflated and died, and when I saw the finish line, I just ran like there was no tomorrow. yeah.
05 September 2008
Just watched the premiere of ANTM11. Some of the 14 finalists are rather cool.
You have a French girl who looks like Audrey Tautou when she smiles (Marjorie)
You have a half-Korean-half-Japanese girl who is super fierce, and who's a good representation for the Asian community (Sheena),
And finally you have a transgender. She takes nicer photos than some of the contestants. (Isis)
oh, and the Lit books which I borrowed from the library are pretty useful. yay!
03 September 2008
watch watch watch! =D
ok, I mean... watch if you need a break amidst the mugging. I did. lol.
01 September 2008
I have photos of BOYS LIKE GIRLS!
Stood at the FRONT ROW with farhanah kuoying bryan wenda just to name a few.
It was CRAZY, everyone was screaming their heads off!! Some local bands like The Great Spy Experiment also received much reception. Overall atmosphere was pretty awesome by nighttime, which was rather surprising because everyone's supposed to be as tired as a zombie after running 10km.
I'm lazy to upload the photos here.
Visit my facebook albums link if you wanna see the photos!
woke up today obviously with a set of aching and retarded thighs. studied math at home, and joined seb and lintong at jurong east for more mugging. we decided that we got kinda unproductive after like many hours, so we decided to catch Wall.E!! WOO. its a nice futuristic movie showing how earth would look like in the year 2700+, and also how people would look like then (fat and immobile)
