10 Random Emmy Award Thoughs...

...Because, yes, I am that much of a TV Geek! =)

Okay, okay, before we go any further... Yes, I know that I have been madly ignoring this blog. And yes, by "madly" I mean... MAAAADLY!

Hehe. Okay, ::ahem::

Sorry. No, really I mean it, I am sorry. Sorry. Stuff and life has kept getting in the way of this blogs updatetation. But, alas, a lot of that "stuff" has pretty much just been me being the procrastinating person that I am coupled with the fact that I had a certain anal plan on how I wanted subsequent blog posts to go here. Since my last post, which was "Doctor Who" related ended in a certain TV cliffhanger-y way, I wanted the next couple of post to also be "Doctor Who" related... and when that didn't happen, I somehow couldn't get away from that anal plot line idea, and thus, didn't update. But, now, I figured that I should stop being that ridiculous about it, especially since no one actually reads this damn thing... but yeah... where was I?

Oh, yeah! The 2009 Primetime Emmy's! They're today! Just in a couple of hours! Like I said, I am that much of a TV Geek to actually be looking forward to this! Hehe. So, seeing as how it's TVs most important night, I figured I should get back on ball and update this here TV blog! No better night to do that, right!

So, in no particular and thus random order and without further ado ... Enjoy!

10 Random Emmy Award Thoughts...

1. I hope Jim Parsons (From: "The Big Bang Theory") wins for Outstanding Male Actor in a Comedy Series. Enough with the "30 Rock"/"The Office" repetitiveness crap.

2. I also REALLY hope that Hugh Laurie (From: "House, MD") wins for Outstanding Actor in a Drama Series. Sadly, he will most likely lose to Jon Hamm (From: "Mad Men"). Though, wouldn't it be a cool random shocker if Simon Baker (From: "The Mentalist") wins =) Still, Go, Hugh! =P

3. Outstanding Directing for a Drama Series. Better be "ER". Just because "ER" has to win something! It better win something, it's bloody "ER" for crying outloud, and it's the last episode that got nominated, so it'd be nice. Hehe =)

4. Holy Crap! Outstanding Writing in a Drama Series is: "Mad Men," "Mad Men," "Mad Men," "Mad Men," & "Lost." Well, that's just slightly weighted, don't you think. Gee, I wonder who will win? *sarcasm*

5. Outstanding Drama Series: HOUSE!!! Why? Because I'm biased, that's why! =)

6. Haha... "Mother Lover" is nominated for Outstanding Music and Lyrics! Haha... it should so win, just for the LOL factor! =)

7. "Little Dorrit" is nominated for best Miniseries. This is probably the only Masterpiece Classic BBC production that I didn't care enough for to watch. Haha... and it has "Doctor Who" people in it! LOL. Still, it's BBC and part of the Masterpiece family, so I hope it wins!

8. Awwww... "Pushing Daisies" won for Outstanding Costumes for a Series. Too cute! Also won for Outstanding Makeup for a single camera series. I don't know what else (if anything) it was nominated for... but it was stunningly beautiful and visually brilliant! Is there a category for that??? =) ::looks:: Oh, wow, there is!! It's called Outstanding Art Direction For a Single Camera Series! And, yes, "Pushing Daisies" took that award, too! Take that "Mad Men"... ::pause:: ... Oh, no!!! "Bones" was nominated in this category, too! Ugh. Sulks.

9. Late Night w/ Conan O'Brien for Writing in a Variety/Music/Comedy Series. Cuz I love Conan, wether on Late Night or the Tonight Show! Hehe...

10. (I'm running out of thoughts, LOL... umm...) So, will one of the "Grey's Anatomy" girls win for Outstanding Supporting Actresses? Hmm... there's hope, would be cool, too. But they probably will lose to one of the "In Treatment" girls =)

Okay... so that's it! I know I'm the only one who cares about the Emmy's. But I don't care, it's always been that way! LOL... But, as a TV Geek, this is what I do... plus, I'm reeeealy bored right now, and Will Ferrell annoys me on SNL! Hah.

Anyways... Thoughts?

The Eleveth Hour, for Eleveth Doctor speculations...

will be at 5:35PM... UK Time...

Will you look at that? The next actor to portray the iconic Doctor will be announced tomorrow afternoon... or wait, no... it's already Saturday in the UK... so, it will be announced in a matter of hours! =)

I have no idea who the next Doctor will be, I just know that I want to know. I actually wouldn't want to know, had I had no idea that that there would be a need to make an announcement, but what are you gonna do? The cat's out of the bag, speculation abounds, and my curiosity is spiked.

Rumor has it that it will be Paterson Joseph who will be announced as the next Doctor, and, incidentally enough, the first Black actor to portray the role (side note: In America, he would be African- American, in the United Kingdom, would he be African- British/English/Londoner? This is a serious question, I would really like to know the phrasing, if anyone knows).

In all honesty, I'm not to keen on the him being the doc. Not sure why, though. But a big reason for me not wanting him is because he was already in Doctor Who. Although, yes, it was a very minor part in Bad Wolf and The Parting of the Ways, and yes, he never actually (at least I don't think) got to meet The Doctor, he was still on the show, and that to me, is a real put off. Because of that small fact, is why I don't understand why he would be the front runner and lead favorite in the betting pools.

Another name that has been thrown around is, Russell Tovey. For me, again, no. For the same reason. He was the Alonzo in Ten's "Alonz-y Alonzo" bit! To familiar a face, I'd say.

Just get someone new, I say.

My money was on David Morrissey, even while watching The Next Doctor on Christmas I though it would be him... that is, until about half way through the episode when his candidacy fell flat on the floor. He would of been great in the role, I think. He actually was, really, during that first half of The Next Doctor... damn... I'd say "What a waste," but that's just mean, and not actually true, because he was good in his role nonetheless. Same goes for John Simm.

I also thought that Robert Carlyle would be a good choise, a nice scottish accent, too. But alas, he was just recently announced to be the lead in the next installment of the Stargate franchise, Stargate: Universe (I'll blog about that later, hehe). So, yeah, he's out.

Someone I thought would have made a very good, very depressed-esque, Doctor would be Benedict Cumberbatch. I've only ever seen him in The Last Enemy, but I really liked him in that role. He was also in The Other Boleyn Girl and Atonement, for those of you who may not be all that familiar with the BBC mini series. But as for Doctor Who, well, I just read on that he got cast for some other BBC Sherlock themed project this year... so, if random postings on can be taken at heart value, then I guess he's out too. But, and this is going off topic, he'd make a great Sherlock, too, now that I think about it. =)

Hugh Laurie would have been awesome to, but he's of course is busy with House, MD. Haha... He'd be to much like Nine, in my opinion, anyway.

So, who's left to be Who? Lots of actors, surely. Some big name celebs (which is unlikely), and even lesser knows, I just can't think of any.

I've heard/read the names Eddie Izzard and James Nesbitt thrown around as well... but eh, I don't know. I don't even know these guys! LOL. I'm sure they're fine actors, though. =)

Like I said before, I'm sure the BBC casting department knows what they're doing, knows what they want, and will cast the right man.

Speculation is worthless anyway... I'm just really bored and feel like writing, hence this post. Hehe. And, of course, I can't deny that I'm a wee bit curious about the Time Lords regeneration. =)

Green Blog #2: Screw Eleven, I want Ten! Four more years!

'Ello, 'ello!

How are you all fine folks this evening? Hope all is well and that 2009 has been treating you well these first two days of its existence. Since you've stumbled across this blog today, I'd like to inform you that this little entry is the second edition of TV as I See It's Green Blog series. Only this one might be a little bit different than what I had initially anticipated for Green Blog, since I'm going to edit it this one quite a bit. I'm not quite sure of the date I wrote this... it was supposed to be posted here a while ago, but I just never got around to posting it, but since some of it is written already, it is going to be a Green Blog.


Screw Eleven, I want Ten! Four more years! Four more years! ... or at the very least, how about just one more series? It's only thirteen episodes, it's not like it's that much. Oh, why Mr. Tennant, why? Damn you, David Tennant... if you weren't so damn hot I'd hate you! LOL, jk =)

So, apparently its official. David Tennant, star of the revived British television hit, is leaving Doctor Who at the end of it's 2009 Special Series.


David Tennant has been playing the role of The Doctor for three years now on Doctor Who, first appearing for just a couple of seconds for the regeneration scene during the Series One finale, The Parting of the Ways, and only just as recently as this Christmas Day, during the 2008 Christmas Special, The Next Doctor.

That title. The Next Doctor. How many internet savvy brains has that little title rattled for the last couple of months... But I think I'm getting ahead of myself here...

The whole fretting idea of Tennant leaving, I think, began during the Series Four pre-finale episode, The Stolen Earth, when it ended in a massive cliffhanger that had The Doctor in the middle of a regeneration after being shot by a Dalek. Luckily, The Doctor didn't fully regenerate the following week in Journey's End, but I think that that little scene got people talking about just who exactly the next Doctor after Tennant would be.

Of course, when the title for the Christmas Special, The Next Doctor, was released a few months there after, speculation started to grow again, as to if this was a signal that Tennant was on the out. Rumors were around that yes, and still others, that no (As I have watched The Next Doctor, I can tell you that, at least at that point in time, no. Tennant was still there at the end of the episode). But, with the 2009 Series scaled down to just a handful of Specials, some believed that Tennant was most probably staying after all. Seeing as how he was currently on stage for the Royal Shakespeare Company, some saw the scale down as a way to let Tennant pursue the continuation of his stage career, and still allow him the opportunity to do Doctor Who all at the same time. Seems like a fair assumption.

But then low and behold this happened:

It was inevitable, I mean just by the pure nature of the show, you know its bound to happen sooner or later, but it's still sad to hear it being confirmed. He was just brilliant as The Doctor.

It's going to be hard seeing another man in the role, and yet, as much as I don't want to see Tennant hang up his trainers and long brown coat, there is still that little part of me that wants to know just what is going to cause Ten to regenerate into Eleven... Hmmm.... But then I remember Ten and I get sad again. LOL...

Wow, new Doctor, new companion.. that's going to be interesting! =) Anyways, screw Eleven, I want Ten... just as much as I wanted Nine when I was cursing the arrival of Ten oh not so long ago, LOL! That just goes to show you, though, doesn't it? Whoever the BBC decides to cast as The Doctor, I'm pretty sure that they know what they're doing, and I trust that they are going to make the right call.

I just wonder why Tennant did it at the National Television Awards???? Personally, I would of just liked to have been surprised by it happening on the Tele at the end of the 2009 specials. I don't know, I just would have liked to have that "What the hell! Where'd that come from!?" moment while the episode ended in a cliffhanger... even though I hate cliffhangers... hehe, I'm a complicated girl that way, LOL... Oh well.

Power be to David Tennant for his decision, and power be to him in his next endeavors!


There ya go. David Tennant is leaving Doctor Who =)

Actually... you know what? This Green Blog is probably going to lead into another Doctor Who, non- Green Blog post in a moment or to...hehe! =)

Happy New Year 2009!

I still love my family, and I always will =)

12-Are you happy the year is almost over?
I wouldn't say happy. Sad to see it go, but looking forward to the next.
Hoping that it can only get better! =) As one of my personal favorite, self edited, quote says: "I raise my glass to day to come, and give all my love to long ago!" =)

13-Are you going to change something about yourself next year?
Yeah, probably. I'm going to will my self to work out on a regular basis, get a better hair style, become more confident and independent. Have good times, you know, that sorta good thing =) I also want to finally learn to play an instrument! =) I blame Hugh Laurie for this! (Blogger's Note: If you're looking for the TV relevency of this post, well, there ya go!)

14-Do you think 2009 will be a better year then 2008?
Hope so. Upwards on onwards, right? =)

37-Did you get a tattoo?
No, not this year, not in any past year, most likely not in any year!

38-Did you vote?
No. I wasn't informed enough to make a weighted and fair decision. I'm tired of all the vote talk. I'm sick and tired of all these people talking about Obama like he's a freggin' savior!.The man hasn't done anything yet! Chill it! And don't even get me started of that word "historic" that they keep throwing around like its... well, I don't know, something you throw. It can't be historic if you can't look back on it yet! And everyone who says that this country has "grown" and "advanced" because we elected and African American to be our president... well, you can't really call it growing and advancing if you still single it out as a great thing that we did. You can only call it overlooking race, if you actually overlook it and not mention it every chance you get. A man is a man, not a race or a color; the only one true race is Human and the only color we should be concerned with is the red life that flows through every man, woman and child. There... rant over.
LOL =)

Yes! Same one most people are probably going to make: Get in better shape! And like I said, try to learn to play an instrument.

Hope so! ::is cautiously optimistic:: =D

I don't know yet! Probably at home with the family =D

43-Do you think you will make new friends in 2009?
I hope so.

44-Are you hoping to meet someone special in 2009?
Again... I hope so =)

45-How do you feel, another year has passed you by?
I'm old. LOL! I'm a little off track on the parade of life from where I'd like to be, but I'm still in the festivities, and giving it my all, so all is well! =)

46. Best friends?

47: Lost any friends?
I wouldn't say lost... but, lost contact with, or rarely speak with, yeah.

48: Gained any friends?
No... don't think so.

49: Moved?
Like I said before. Sorta... I moved from school life, back to the home town.

50: school?
::dusts hands off and smiles:: All done and over with! ::does a happy dance:::

51: Have you changed?
A bit.

52: New look?
No, not really.

53: Most depressed time this year?
Me? No, not really. (this question is a bit confusing in its phrasing...)

54: Favorite season?
Funny you should ask. I was just thinking the other day... as I freeze.. that during Summer, I say that Winter is my favorite season, but when Winter roles around, Summer is my favorite. So, I guess it's a tie between the two, lol.

55: Least favorite season:
Hmmm.... don't really have a least one... Spring? Mostly cuz here I think this season is a bit non existent.

56: Got arrested?
Ha! No.

57: Kissed a girl?

58: Had a crush?
Oh, yeah! ::thinks back:: Dayum, =) LOL

59: Lost a family member?
No, thank God. ::knocks on wood::

Happy New Year!

Random TV Quote...

Courtesy of tonights re-ran episode of The Big Bang Theory:

"Everyone has a date. Even you, Mario, going after Princess Peach.
What am I doing? I'm just enabling you."

-Sheldon, while "playing Mario 64 on a poorly coded Nintendo 64 emulator," in the stairwell

How bloody brilliant is that quote?! The "enabling you" part just made me crack up when I heard it. Sheldon is so cute! =)

This is such an awesome show, too! I always forget to watch it, though, but everytime I remember to watch it, or whenever I randomly stumble accross it, it always makes me laugh! I have to remember to catch a few more episodes online sometime, especially since I've only seen a handfull of episodes... That or get a TiVo...

Anyway... yeah. Random quote.

"Oh, Mario, if only I could control everyone the way I control you.... Hop, you little plummer, hop, hop, hop!"
-Sheldon, once again in the stairwell

Have a great time celebrating! Though, don't forget to take time out from all the present giving and opening, from holiday feasts, candy canes and tamales, to remember the real meaning and significance of this day.

Wishing you Peace on Earth & Good Will Towards Man,
Ms. Me =)

Green Blog #1: Helping Billions, One Water Bottle At A Time...

Welcome to the first installment of Green Blog! Thanks for stopping by! =)

Like I said during my last posted entry on December the 18th, I am going to begin randomly recycling and reusing some of my old ramblings, otherwise known as writings, that were based, in part, on television viewing, as a way to continue this blog during times when I cannot sit and write out full- blown, new blog entries. Hope you don't mind =)

In keeping with the Green spirit for the first installment of Green Blog, I decided to chose this particular entry that I wrote way back when on March the 10th of this year on MyBlogSpace over at MySpace.

I really like the message in this *entry, so I really hope that you can take away something from it aswell.

Enjoy! =)

*Edited/ Revised for grammar, punctuation... and basic overall fluidity and addition of information where author deems needed and/or necessary, for added spark (Please be advised that future Green Blog's will also be edited in this manner).


Hello Everyone! ::waves:::

So, I randomly came across this video not to long ago when I clicked on a banner over at a David Tennant website, and after watching it and persuing the site that the banner linked to, I realized that I wanted to share it with you all. It took me quite a while to share it with you, only because I had to figure out how to embed a non-downloadable, online streaming video file, off of another persons/ organizations website onto this blog... but I'm clever... and so I figured it out. =) The things I do to share valuable information! Ain't I awesome!?

Anyway, if you so wish, please watch below:

Pretty cool and ingenious, wouldn't you say. I certainly think so, and I honestly think that this is a brilliant idea and a great cause. It makes me wonder why we, as in we the people of these United States, don't take up a simillar project or initiative such as this. Or why we don't have One Water, or another such easily marketable product available for purchase here in the United Sates in order to help out those in need, just like our United Kingdom brethren do...

Anyways, makes you think. At least I hope it did. It made me think. Let me know your thoughts if you feel up to it. Hope you enjoyed the video, at the very least.


Well, there ya go! The first installment of Green Blog! Yay! Hope you enjoyed it!

If you get the chance check out the One Water website here: One Love, One Difference
Or if you'd like, play a Play Pump game: here

Night Night Folks!

PS: If you're wondering how this is related to television... well, it's quite simple really: No.1-- it's an advert (though I don't know if it was ever shown on television... ) and No.2-- David Tennant. He's the Doctor on Doctor Who, and Doctor Who is on TV. So there ya go, you just got to go with the flow!

EDIT NOTE: After I posted this entry, I realized that my previous efforts to embed the advert had long since been for naught, since the video would no longer load... don't know if this problem is just the result of having old flash softwear installed on my computer (which probably is the case) or something else, but in the spirit of not taking chances, I took it off and started looking through YouTube, and low and behold it is now currently available there! Oh, well, like I've said: Good ol' YouTube. Anyway, the video is now currently viewable here. =)

Green is universal...

I'm all for saving this beautiful planet we live on. I love Earth! Seriously I do. It's the best rotating rock in the universe as far as I'm concerned. So, in honor of being eco-friendly, I am proud to announce that this here blog, is from this day forward, going GREEN!!


(...hold for applause...)

Right about now, you are probably asking yourself, "How the [expletive] does a free, internet provided, blog go green?"

Well, in all honesty, it doesn't. There's no way it actually can really, at least not that I know of. It can't fix the ozone layer, it can't reduce air pollution, it can't grow organically, it's not low-flow or even energy efficient. Sorry, but it's true... and this is a television blog, so I can't really advocate those things on a regular basis (but, consider yourself advocated as of... Now! You live on Earth, too, so I expect you to keep it pretty and healthy, you hear me!?). But, one thing this blog can do, is Reduce, Reuse, Recycle. Oh, yes it can!

Well... it can't really reduce, really. Because with each entry I post, I add more clutter to the internet.. but, still, go with me on this.

What with my busy schedule and all, I haven't really gotten very many opportunities to sit down and write. Sure, I have some free time after or before work, but I'd rather spend that time relaxing and kicking back instead of coming up with new ideas for blog entries and then sitting down to write them up. So, because I still do not want to give in and end this blog because of lack on public interest, I'm going to start posting things about television that I have written in the past that are on my computer, or things that I have posted as bulletins on MySpace. See, I'm reusing and recycling! Ain't I clever? =)

Not quite sure which the first one will be, I'll have to peruse some files, but you'll see it soon enough. But yes, this blog is going green, because, as we television viewers know, Green is Universal! I love that saying, ever since it started making the rounds last year! If this blog had a little peacock on the bottom left hand corner, or a little picture of a ringed planet on it's side, a letter "T" with a planet inside it, or some random combination of letters, you sure can bet it will be colored in a bright green hue. Hehe.

(FYI: Peacock= NBC; Ringed Planet= SciFi; "T"= Telemundo; Letters= USA, etc.)

Incase you don't know, NBC Universal coined that phrase last year when they were promoting going and being green. During that month (or was it week?), NBC Universal was encouraging their networks programming to air episodes that promoted the environment or advocated some kind of going green measure. They did this again a few months ago. I don't really watch that much NBC/U programing, but I only remember one show that had an environment centered story (that would be Stargate: Atlantis's episode Brain Storm... and yes, I would notice that one, being as how SGA is one of my favorite shows, and quiet possibly the only NBC/U show that I watch on a regular basis... but, oh, well...) and I remember hearing about another one that did so as well (that would be Eureka). I don't remember Heroes doing anything... hmm...

...Anyway, yeah, blog is going green! =)
