I blame Entourage

Thursday, January 22nd, 2009

I have been severly slacking with posting stuff on my blog lately. An I blame it entirely on Entourage.

Before I left for the US last month, I decided to load my iPhone up with episodes of the tv series. Hoping that it would help me pass the time while I was transiting on planes. It turned into an addiction though. I’ve managed to condense five seasons of the show into a little over a month.

Now, instead of blogging on my phone, I’ve been watching TV. At least now I’m done with the series. But, the new season of television is starting up now. So, I’ll probably be on my Slingbox a bunch now instead. 😉

So you think you can dance.

I really like this show. I feel that this season’s group of dancers is pretty damn good. Its hard to say that any one season’s group is better than any other since they are all so good. And I feel that the judges are pretty good at critiquing the dancers. In past seasons their responses were quite fair and balanced. This season it seems a little bit watered down though. 

I’m getting quite tired of all the judges saying that they love all the choreography and that the dancers weren’t able to execute it well enough if they didn’t like a number. I’m sorry, but some of the choreography isn’t good enough. The choreographer should make tough routines that either the dancer will look great doing or will show off their inadequacies because they couldn’t master the style of dance.

Happy Superbowl.

Today is the biggest day in sporting television in the USA. Nobody cares out here in Singapore.I spent all day yesterday with Jason trying to find a bar that would show it. The problem is, the game starts at 7AM on a monday out here. After all day of visiting sports bars and expat hangouts we managed to score the last two seats at a Chicago Pub called Dan Ryan’s. It was great to see so many expats there. It almost felt like home.We woke up at 5AM to get there by 6AM to get good seats. They served pancakes.. yum.. And other American breakfast items. The only thing missing from this great game. The commercials. I guess you can’t have everything.Outside Dan Ryan’s
