Commercial Break #86

Well… this month has been an embarrassment to say at least. I haven’t posted nor written as much as I would have liked to. I literally have written 0 reviews! None. I haven’t even tried. It’s bit of a shame really, since I really want to stay current but I guess it’s going to be a situation where I have to say “here’s a review of a movie I saw 3 months ago”. But hopefully I will get caught up soon, even though I also have to catch up with my reading because I’m slowly falling behind my challenge…

Top Ten Tuesday: Fandoms From My Past

Ever since I’ve been following Maria over at Big City Bookworm, I’ve been amazed at her skill to participate in multiple tag posts a week. I mean, I can hardly keep track of one (Thursday Movie Picks) let alone two/three per week! Anyway, Maria is awesome, which is one of the points I wanted to make, the other is that ever since I started reading her Top 10 Tuesdays, weekly tag created by The Broke and the Bookish, I’ve wanted to participate but I never really jumped for it… until today! Who knows if I’ll post for Top 10 Tuesday every week but I’ll try my best, especially since I’m clearly not writing any reviews lately.

Top 5 Reality Competition Shows

top 5 reality competition shows

Some years ago there was an ultimate boom of reality television and what started with Paris Hilton and Nicole Ritchie has evolved into housewives, toddlers and what I can only describe as stupid people saying stupid things. Still, despite the fact that I stay far away from those Jersey Shore Kardashian Honey Boo-Boos, I do enjoy competitive reality television a lot so here are my top 5 shows I’ve enjoyed in the past or still adore.

Aw-ramble: Emmy Awards 2013

emmyawards

It’s pretty gloomy outside and obviously that means I need to start off the Monday with a huge cup of coffee and a little award-ramble post (I though I’d call it aw-ramble because I think I’m oh so clever and stuff). I don’t necessarily like to cover award shows but I figured it’s my obligation as a movie/TV-show blog to continuously share my low-key opinions about these things. So, as most of you probably know, the 65th Emmy Awards announced the winners yesterday and like every year, not everybody is happy about the winners and losers.

# 244 – Project Runway (Reality special)

Before the All-Star season begins, Project Runway chose its ninth winner, who happened to be one of my favorites from the beginning: Anya Ayoung-Chee. She was the beautiful person who learned how to sew just three months prior to the competition – something that in the end started to become unfair to some people in the competition. Yes, her clothes were more easily constructed but for me it actually was a positive note, nowadays clothes have become a show – she went back to basics. Being from Trinidad, she was inspired by prints and the style from her  country. Her clothes fell very easy to the body, some were of course not as commercial as one could need but I still remember how the boring-commercial-old-ladies-clothes-maker won the competition last year. Am I okay with this winner, yes – would I liked Anthony Ryan Auld to be the winner instead, probably but the judges didn’t like his style as much as I enjoyed some of his work.

Anya also won the fan-favorite although Anthony Ryan was so close he could almost touch the money, which he did, since Anya donated half of her fan-winnings to his charity. Made me like her even more. Another contestants didn’t really apply for fan-favorite but Joshua McKinley and Viktor Luna also stood out and they made it until the end.

Commenting reality-TV is difficult cause they are real people but I think this season was funnier than others have been but the level of design has been going down ever since Christian Siriano – winner of the fourth season. I still remember his haute couture dress with the commercial outfit – and his final runway – perfection. No wonder he is the most successful winner so far cause he is the only one I have heard of after winning the competition.

I have been watching Project Runway for a long time and this season was definitely better than last (due to the choice of the winner) but what is more exciting about this season is the fact that it is over and now – All Stars comes next. Season 8th Mondo Guerra is back (those who don’t and want to know – google) and this time – he better win, Nina!
