What I've Watched #4


Did you catch the new show, Bunheads this week? You can watch the first episode on the ABC Family website if you missed it. I think it might have potential, since it's written by the same lady who wrote Gilmore Girls, but so far it's a bit obnoxious. Hopefully it gets better.

I give it a 1.5 out of 5 stars.

One for the Money

I'm probably the only one who hasn't read this book series, but after seeing One for the Money, which is based off the first book in a series by Janet Evanovich, I think I just might have to. This movie (for those of you who live under a rock like I do) follows department-store-clerk-turned-bounty-hunter, Stephanie Plum, as she tries to track down her ex-boyfriend who jumped bail. Very funny, interesting storyline, and mostly clean. (There were some potentially questionable scenes, but they were handled pretty tastefully).

I give it a 3.75 out of 5 stars.

American Ninja Warrior 

I accidentally recorded American Ninja Warrior a couple weeks ago because my TiVo thought it fell under the category of "Gymnastics", which I have an auto-record set up for. I was remarking about this to my sister, who was quick to defend this oddly titled show, so I decided to give it a try. Turns out, it's really, really fun! I had never heard of it before, but apparently it's a pretty big deal in certain circles. Basically it's a parkour-style obstacle course that people can compete in. The best of the best get to try out a super, amazing, huge, Japanese-style obstacle course that only 3 people in the world have ever actually completed. Crazy weird and kind of cool, huh?

I don't think you can watch any of the old episodes online, but if you have the channel G4, you wouldn't be lost if you jumped in now. They've completed about half of the qualifying rounds and then they still have the finale obstacle course rounds to do. Although it does get a bit monotous after awhile, it's still an interesting way to pass the evening.

I give it a 2.75 out of 5.

I have come to the realization that I may have been mis-typed. I have often taken personality tests and generally come up with the result that I am INFP. I recently took a test that said I was INFJ actually, and the more I have been researching, the more that actually sounds like me.

What it really comes down to is the external/internal focus of the different functions (a topic that I'm still trying to wrap my head around, so I apologize if I don't explain it right). The I--J tends to actually function more as a "Perceiver" than a "Judger", contrary to what you might think (and vice versa for the I--P), which is a common reason these two types are mistaken for each other. How it actually plays out though is quite distinctive, which is why once I started reading more about INFJ's, I realized how much more like me it sounded. Basically, there are...

Vintage Travel Poster

One of our projects this coming term is to do a computer illustration of a painted vintage travel poster. I've been Googling some options and here are some that I like. Which would you pick?

80's Cartoons: Then and Now

I was browsing tv this morning while eating breakfast (tsk, tsk, I know...) and ran across a shocking sight. They've remade a BUNCH of the 80's cartoons, and not very flatteringly at that. I knew about Strawberry Shortcake and Care Bears, but check out some of these other ones, too! As an 80's child myself, I've often wished over the years that those old cartoons would make a comeback, this wasn't exactly what I meant!

Strawberry Shortcake: Then and Now
The 80's Strawberry people were reminiscent of the sugary treats that gave them their names. Now the characters look more like shrunken Barbie dolls.

Care Bears: Then and Now
Care Bears (and their cousins!) used to be a soft, cuddly bunch that liked to stare down bad guys every now and then. Is it just me, or do the new versions have unusually large heads? This somehow makes them look both younger and creepier at the same time.

My Little Ponies: Then and Now As with most 80's cartoons, the My Little Ponies were …
