[TV Shows] Cancellations & Renewals of Jan. 2014

January 28, 2014  |  Fall TV 2013, Mid-Season 2014, TV

January is almost over and there have been many cancellations and renewals of our favorite shows (or rather just some of mine) so here is the latest updated list of cancellations and renewals.

helloladies

First up in the cancellations, is the new HBO tv show “HELLO LADIES“.  This new comedy show was co-written, directed by and starring Stephen Merchant.  The series follows a 6 foot 7 inch gawky englishman who is searching for the woman of his dreams in Los Angeles.  He thinks he’s the shizzles, charming insanely amazing dude, but he comes off as a major douche bag who is just trying too hard.  The series follows him around and we see the failed love encounters if you can call them that.

That’s not all, let’s see who else got the ax this early on in the season.

[TV Shows] Mid-Season 2014 Premiere Dates

January 28, 2014  |  Fall TV 2013, Mid-Season 2014, TV

I’ve been procrastinating this post for the past 3 weeks actually I had most of it done and then stopped, new premiere dates for TV Shows came up and I added those then stopped before I was done and more shows, lather rinse repeat.  Fortunately I pushed myself to finish the graphic I had for this post and thus I present to you, the ‘Mid-Season TV Shows 2014 Premiere Dates‘.  I’ve actually started watching a few of those shows and I have actually fallen in love with some.

So, these past few weeks we saw the returns of many of our favorite shows such as “Episodes“, “House of Lies“, “Shameless“, “Girls“, “Single Ladies“, “Switched at Birth“, “The Fosters“, “The Following“, “Cougar Town“, “Pretty Little Liars“, “Ravenswood“, “Psych“, “American Idol“, “Baby Daddy“, “Melissa & Joey“, “Men at Work“, “Suburgatory“, “Community“, “Saving Hope“, “Banshee“, and “Hollywood Game Night“.

But the list doesn’t stop there because we also saw the premieres of “True Detective” (haven’t seen it yet), “Looking” (it is said to be the male version of ‘Girls’), “Intelligence” (haven’t tackled the few episodes), “Bitten” (absolutely LOVE THIS SHOW! WEREWOLVES!), “Chozen” (couldn’t get through the first episode), “Killer Women” (actually LIKED this show it was kind of funky different, I can’ t wait for new episodes!), “Being Mary Jane” (THIS IS A MUST SEE!!!! GABRIELLE UNION LOVE!), “Chicago PD” (still haven’t seen it), “Rake” (premiered last weekend it was kind of cool not sure though how it will play out), “Enlisted” (a comedy about the failures in the Army hehe kind of funny and cool), and “Helix” (haven’t seen it yet).

I can’t wait for the other shows to premiere later on in the next two months and the return of giants such as “Game of Thrones“, “Veep“, “Mad Men“, and more.

P.S. “Mr. Selfridge” has just returned as well with 2 episodes under its belt into the second season.

Re-Living Your Childhood

January 20, 2014  |  Deep Thoughts

Something just came to my mind, what if you could revisit your childhood and look at yourself as a child experiencing different things. It would be weird wouldn’t it?  I was really thinking this thought because right now if you were to look back or remember something from way back then you would lose the details of that memory, you’d just remember brief things whereas if you were to revisit them by actually viewing them you would remember more.

I might be going cray-cray but still bear with me.

If you were to get a chance to walk into your old school (high school, middle school, whichever) and see the classes now you would feel that they are INSANELY SMALL! But when you remember your old school you will feel that classrooms back then were insanely big.  The reason I’m saying this was because recently I visited my old school and went to the different classes and man did they feel insanely small.  I was like really were they always this big, maybe it was because we were small back then but the different proportions of life you went through would be interesting to look at with your older mind and older eyes (granted my eyes are pretty much gone but still good to look at things).

I guess it must be something I ate that had me this nostalgic.

Time for New Year Resolutions 2014

January 1, 2014  |  New Year

The first few hours of 2014 have passed by, luckily for me I spent the night away reading a book and couldn’t put it down until I was finished in the early hours of 2014.  That sounds like a promising start if I do say so myself.  Every year at around this time, January 1st I sit down with myself, have a small conversation (a la Smeagel from ‘Lord of the Rings’) and decide what this year’s accomplishments will be.  Before I evaluate last year’s resolutions, I thought to share what I wish for this year.

ResolutionsJax

So this year I have 4 really important resolutions/wishes that I want to happen.

  1. Be healthy & happier with life! (After last year’s health hiccup I want to avoid that a thousand times!)
  2. Find a new job & make some $$$ :P
  3. Lose weight & actually work on it rather than be too lazy.  (I hope I actually achieve it!)
  4. Make that one wish I’ve had for a few hundred years come true, just that one wish!

As a bonus, I’d like to just add three more tiny ones and those should be achievable without any trouble.

  1. Read even more!
  2. Blog even more and celebrate the 10 years of blogging in style!
  3. ENJOY LIFE TO THE MAX!

Goodbye 2013, Hello 2014

January 1, 2014  |  New Year, Reflections

The time has come to finally bid an adieu to the year 2013 and what a year it was.  It didn’t start off to a good start for me, for one thing I was laid off earlier this year from my previous job, and later on I discovered I was sick and had to undergo surgery to be all better well, I am sort of healthy again so at least there is that.  Not to mention a few downs here and there but I want to refocus my energy on the ups instead.
