I watch films via Netflicks.com and TV shows via Hulu.com. Oh, and I've replaced my old TV with the eyeTV for my laptop. For a little over a Franklin, you're just one USB connection away from free TV forever. So, I'm also guilty of offing the conventional TV but keeping their programs. Much happier now. TV is in a better place along with the landline phone. Watch below to see currentnews take on the death of the TV.

You must go out and watch the new Terminator NOW! So good. Okay, like Star Trek, it is very different from the old stuff but it does pay some homage to the original. It is more aligned with the 'Sara Conner Chronicles' series which is phenomenal. I love that nutty Christian Bale. He can be anything, and as John Conner, he's damn convincing. Film was action packed with cool affects, like crazy good motorcycle scenes!

If you have to be experience a 4.7 tremor, no better place than in Royce Hall listening to the marvelous Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra. Just before they were to play de Falla Ritual Fire Dance from El amor brujo, LA experienced a news worthy quake.

There are contestant coaches to help you move along in the process such as answer "spontaneously" those hard questions that hurt your brain. If you don't believe me, youtube some contestants. They get their pre-prepped answers all confused and end up talking about Iraq when the question was about education in the U.S. These coaches along with pageant sponsored plastic surgeons of the "Barbie factory" are but a few of the myriad of other cogs in the machine that makes up Miss Universe, Miss USA, Miss (fill in a state)...
Congrats to brother and sister team, Victor (35) and Tammy (26) Jih, for winning the Amazing Race 14th Season! With their $1 million prize, they plan to do what? Pay off their law school bills, of course. Tammy said her mom mentioned having dibs on some of the cash too, so Asian of mum.
By most reviews, their intelligence helped them with clues and directions and their endurance and eventual teamwork brought them through to the end!

It is officially not my imagination, I see Asian (American) men everywhere. They have taken over the tube, big screen and even gossip mags/blogs! My only thought is, it's about damn time. Though still too few Asian images exist in media, I'm delighted to see my brothahs get some face time.
Most notably, they are not depicted as the nerd, kung fu expert, Chinese restaurant worker or gangsta. Last week 'Wolverine' opened with super hot hapa, Daniel Phillip Henney, as Agent Zero. An American Expatriate actor in South Korea, Henny has a British father and Korean-American mother. Most known for his role in the Korean hit drama, 'My Name is Kim Sam Soon', I'm confident he'll get more cross-over screen time. Just look at him, gorgeous!
