Okay, so I totally got suckered into watching this new show on MTV called, “the phone,” because of Mr. Justin Timberlake himself promoting the show on MTV like there was no tomorrow.  I thought to myself, I can’t stop watching “the hills,” totally entertained by “rob’s fantasy factory“,  and was obsessed with “run’s house” at one point,  so why wouldn’t this show be nothing less than fantabulous?   But after watching the first episode, I totally had mixed feelings.  I’m not sure how much of it is reality and how much of it is scripted like “the hills”.  CKB had told me how “the hills” was completely scripted couple of months ago, and I can’t even begin to tell you how devastated I was. Yeah, yeah, yeah, pretty silly for me to have believed otherwise. 

Anywho, the show was “eh”.   The actual trailer for the show was 100 times better than the actual show.  What I had hard time believing was the reaction of the contestants as they are going about the show.  They know it’s a game show, and they know that MTV wouldn’t jepordize anyone’s life or risk dangering the public, so why are they freaking out on the show??????  I’m not sure, it’s a bit much for me to take in as total reality….  And how could MTV afford to put a show like this together every week?  Is JT lending his money to produce the show?

John made a comment about how sad it was for me to know the names of 1/2 of the participants on the “RW/RR Duel 2“.  Maybe I should spend less time watching MTV, and do something  more productive like packing for our move.

i’m a huuuuge jets fan. i love the jets. even though they always manage to disappoint me every year. yesterday was the first day of the nfl draft. the jets made some big moves. long story short, they traded their 17th pick and some other picks and players for the 5th overall pick. and guess who we got …

mark sanchez. WHOOO!!!

 

ok, to be honest, i have no idea if he’s great or what. i know he played for usc which is always a really good college football team. let’s hope this could help the jets …

i have my fingers crossed ..

so recently, i posted about that south park episode that pokes fun at kanye. and then kanye responded on his blog. well, he was recently on BET to feature his new video, amazing ft. young jeezy. and let’s just say you can’t change a genius.

 

the interview starts around minute 4 which is the main reason to watch the video.

Zuma beach is my favorite beach in the universe.  This was Gina’s first time at Zuma beach, and first time in LA.  I think she enjoyed it alot.  This is one of my favorite pix from this trip.  I feel there’s something so incredibly tranquil about this particular moment.

Kunjip – This is one of my staple restaurants in NYC.  Literal translation to Kunjip is “a big house,” but I believe a better translation would mean, “house of an older family member”(roughly).  It is fairly decent priced by NYC standards and IMO, the food is the closest thing you could have to home cooking.  Gina and I try to do lunch/dinner on QTRly basis and we went here for lunch on Friday.  It’s super cozy and really authentic Korean food IMO.  It’s located on Kblock on 32nd street between 5th Ave and Broadway.  It’s right next to Pinkberry.   Btw, Anthony Bourdain‘s been here and approved it, that’s good enough for moi!
