Best Adam Lambert interview to date

I'm happy about the AI results now. :)

I’ve finally gotten over the loss in American Idol and after watching some media interviews with the top 2, I’m glad to say that this was the best possible outcome we could have gotten: Adam doesn’t need to win American Idol to be a superstar while I’m happy that Kris is getting the media coverage he needs to boost his career. Both guys come across as really sweet people in their interviews and I love the fact how they’re a model of how true friendship transcends differences. (See video below for ultimate cuteness). I twittered recently that music preferences don’t have to be mutually exclusive, and both are deserving winners in my book.

The power and the glory; the pride before the Fall

So tonight was my favourite Idol episode of the season so far, mostly because of the sense of vindication over last week’s fiasco.

People who know I’ve been following this season (purely because of Adam) probably also know my immense distaste for Gokey as a television figure. I don’t know the guy and he may very well be a nice guy out of this show but man, he comes off as incredibly cocky to me on screen.

Rockin' good 60s music that make me feel good

Felt in the music mood today so am re-living some of my favourite live 60s songs (not that I was born in the 60s though).

Woodstock (Live version) by Joni Mitchell
One of my all time favourite songs.

TV shows to watch (am already watching) this year

Since I’m terribly free and am on a list-making impetus, here’s my list of TV shows to catch up on:

1. Remaining four Doctor Who specials for the year: Goodbye David Tennant *sobs*. I hope the newcomer Matt Smith will be competent; I am also curious to know how Steven Moffat intends to lead the 1st Doctor Who of the forthcoming decade.

2. Torchwood season 3 miniseries:I swear the Doctor Who creative team is out to torture us this year. Only five episodes of John Barrowman arrrgh…..

3. Battlestar Galactica (or what’s remaining of it): We have only 2 more episodes to go before the end???

4. Smallville: No Lex, rumoured killing off of two main characters, what else? But since I’ve been watching this series for the last 7 seasons, why not finish the 8th (which has seen much improvement over season 7)?

Gadget want list

The economy is in a tailspin and there is a slump in demand for discretionary goods, but you can’t stop even a poor (jobless) geek girl from making up her gadget wish list can you?

Upgraded to Drupal 6.9

After 3 day’s of effort, I’ve finally managed to upgrade the site to Drupal 6.9. Much of the time was spent trying to re-theme the site, which turned out to be a painful process. There’s some stuff I’ve yet to figure out so one might notice a couple of quirks in the text formatting for example, but for the most part it seems ok…

First blog post on this site using the Asus EEEPC 900HA

Blogging from my latest toy, the Asus EEE PC 900HA. Finally got my hands on it after half a week of painful waiting. But it’s all worth it cos I managed to get it in time for my birthday :)

Had a great birthday dinner today. Thanks to all the friends who came and celebrated with me.

End of the fillers

Naruto’s finally returned from filler hell!! I just watched the one hour special opening (comprising of two episodes because each episode is normally half an hour) of the new series, 疾風伝, which starts off rather nicely with a premonition of what’s to come. I wish the episode weren’t interrupted with so many omakes, but I guess the producers had to extend the episodes to fill up the TV timeslot. 仕方がないな。

Speaking of which, Bleach has also returned to the manga plotline some weeks ago. Now I’ve only watched a couple of them Bleach fillers which aren’t so bad, and I guess I have to watch them eventually to catch up with the new arc because the writers seem to have integrated some elements of the fillers into it. Now I’m wondering if I should bother catching up with the mangas at all.
