White Collar.  Another show that John and enjoy watching.  Yes, our DVR is usually at 65% capacity, if not more.  And honestly I don’t even think I’m ashamed of it.  Yes, I watch ton of TV and I’m fairly proud of it….

Anywho, White Collar is a show on USA with the main character name Neal Caffrey.   I’ve always LOVED spy-themed stories.  Read pretty much all of Robert Ludlum books.  But I think I generally speaking, I enjoy “smart” characters.  Smart thieves, smart spies, smart cons, smart villains, and etc.  In one of my favorite movies of all time, “The Usual Suspect” Kevin Spacey’s character is the epitome of an anti-hero.  I LOVE that.  I don’t care what side you’re on as long as you’re able to outsmart and outwit all the characters in the story.  Neal Cafferty is a bit like that.

But more importantly, can we take a moment to just focus on him for moment?  Seriously he is handsome enough for me to watch the show, even if the show was horrible, and his character was dumb as a nail.  However, to my benefit, the show is actually pretty decent.  A master criminal solves crimes.  Yes, it’s not a novel idea.  But the show definitely brings something “new” to the old idea and the acting is really pretty decent.  And once again, let’s focus on Mr. Neal Caffrey…

Okay, this is wrong and funny at the same time.  It’s too funny I have to share.  Gotta love MadTV.  And here’s another one that I thought was pretty hilarious and rather ironic from MadTV/Apple combo.

Another interesting article on NYTimes.  Recently saw the new Taco Bell Drive-Thru commercial and wondered about this topic.  Interesting article about this new “fad”.   Although the article clearly states all the reasons why this wasn’t a miracle weight-loss pill, I LOVE Mexican food so the Taco Bell fresco menu really appeals to me more than any other.  But then again, I don’t like the idea of having to drive to Taco Bell couple of times a week….. Hmmmmm… what does that say about how much effort I want to put into my weight-loss plan? : |

There were 2 articles about my fellow Koreans in NYTimes that I read this week.  They couldn’t be more different from one another.  One was about the Koreans totally ruling the world of texting and the other was about the rise in Koreans committing suicides.

so anybody watch the presidential address last night? i had no idea it was going to be on. but it was. and as a model citizen, i watched.

he addressed all the key points he wanted to achieve. all the standard stuff like universal healthcare, more jobs, tax breaks for all companies, pulling out troops, affordable and better  schooling, and greenness. hopefully, these are goals he and we’ll accomplish.

but aside from that, if you watched, did anyone notice it was literally like comedy hour? obama was cracking jokes left and right. my brother and i thought it was pretty funny. just the idea that usually these speeches are really serious but he’s loosening up. which is nice.

overall it was a great speech. a lot of stories of struggle and hope from the people, optimism in general, comedy, and also he made sure to stand his ground as well. maybe i’m naive, but it made me believe and have hope. so despite his sagging ratings, i’m behind him.

yeahhh. it literally is a bigger version of the iphone or ipod touch. from the getgo, i figured nobody would buy this except maybe if you travel a lot and want to watch videos or something. then i realized this doesn’t even support flash! i don’t know. i think it’s dumb. this is supposed to be like a computer … ? or that’s what people have been saying? but doesn’t even come close. and the name …. i don’t know. i guess it goes with the theme of adding “i” in front of a generic word. iphone, imac, etc.

definitely not worth it, but if you do buy it, let me know! i want to play. =)
