CARTOONS. zeta and invader zim are both awesome. les histoires ne sont pas pour les enfants. invader zim is very dark. and then, how can you not sympathize with zeta, the robot fugitive. the creators put thought into it. unlike other cartoons which start out and end dumb. the new he-man series have good art but the stories arent very creative. must be just me getting old. too commercialized. too pop culture. tant pis. i played warcraft campaigns. from the original game: reign of chaos. j'ai commencé en vendredi passé et fini en lundi soir. 50 bucks well spent. there was a funny outtake at the end of the campaigns. et puis l'evolution. et puis le concert par arthas le prince. et au fond, il y a les credits. et fin, un joue football (ou est-il soccer?). hee hee.
RANT about la télévision. you see the same rubbish perpetuated by shows like eat bulaga (where i first observe the "act"). done across the networks on lunchtime, primetime. all the time. over and over. the same characters. the politically incorrect neanderthal (the alpha male of philippine society to whom children should be looking up to). the dumb and heavily breasted sex object (this is stupid). the ugly (and hence we have license to make fun of - NOT!) neighbor. it is like we have taken stereotypes to a whole new level. stereotypes should be used to make positive changes. (the only way to go) how else are we supposed to start to solve our social problems. sexism. supersition. intolerance. or just being funny. because i sure cant find humor in the same formula using the same people to play the same roles? havent we watched everything there is to see about typical middle class living? when we plagiarize ideas from the west all the time, youd think theres bound to trickle something more creative. example: friends. the goldens girls, 6ft under. sex in the city. coupling (brit version). just shoot me. drew careys. murphy brown. the simpsons. soap (you remember this?). alf. perfect strangers.
agree to disagree. this is why its not being accurate if we put labels on ourselves nor on other people, often making use of unfair generalizations. because i could be liberal and still disagree with certain issues. [embyronic stem cell research] i disagree with it because the cost is too high. peoples lives. i do not need religion to tell me that an embryo is a human being. i consider an embryo a human being. what else could it be. to legislate a ban though is another matter. but yeah, i think will support it. human beings lives are at stake. [gay marraige] the practical solution for now is legislate civil unions decided at the state level. ultimately, all citizens should be allowed to marry. the imposition of religious beliefs is a dead end. this argument is unconstitutional backed up by the first amendment. [illegal immigrants] people who broke the law should be punished according to the law. and not encouraged with a reward of citizenship. [outsourcing] this is the type of issue thats hard to say if am pro or not. if i was still working in aux etats-unis then ill be definitely against it. but since im already abroad. back here. it would be stupid for me to not change my mind.
what is nice about observing the elections aux etat-unis is that the networks provide statistics. several demographics from single and married women, social status, age brackets. then with it, be able to evaluate and maybe even plan strategies to influence those demographics for the next elections. amazing.
