Life Updates and Moi

September 5, 2014  |  Random, Rants

These past couple of weeks, hell these past couple of years I have felt the least bit like myself than I have ever in my life.  Wait do you think that makes sense? What I mean to say that there are more days than I can count where I felt I am a different person and not that “Somebody that I used to know.. somebodyyyyyy..” (ok enough singing!).  Life has a funny way of catching up with you and just either dragging you down, that is if you let it or lifting you up.

One of my recent troubles lately is that I now understand why government jobs for those of us who love to work or love to produce are more like a death sentence than anything else.  There are days at work where I have NOTHING to do at all, and then there are those where everyone just remembers that I exist and pile up pointless work on top of me.  I am pretty much a glorified administrative assistant (see what I did there, I just flipped Secretary to Admin Assistant :P).  I mean I am baffled by how crazy things are, for example a menial job would be: Person A writes an official paper then calls for Person B and C to sit down together and proof-read the paper by, and I am serious here, by sitting down and having Person B read along from the new document while Person C follows on the previous document.  Since when does proof-reading take 2 people? The things one sees in the government sector.

I miss the private sector, I miss being able to accomplish something.  In all my previous jobs I felt a sense of gratification and satisfaction when I saw that one thing I made come to life.  Whether it was during my Banking days when I would help out customers by opening accounts, applying for loans, or whatever they wanted those who were in dire straits and got their money in a speedy manner were ever so thankful and just made you feel “Oh wow, I am totally awesome!” or even my Newspaper days where I would go in and pick out the stories I wanted to share with the readers and just edit and organize things so people can read the paper.  I would open it the next day and say to myself “HEY I MADE THIS!” It was just totally awesome.

At least I still have my blog to make me feel awesome, and the fact that the more experiences I drum up and add to my roster the better a person I can be with all that knowledge.  I really truly like learning everything it doesn’t matter what but its just fun because then I know how things work (remember that book back in the day?) and that allows me to deal with things in a better manner.

Anyways enough ranting, and do enjoy my Fall 2014 TV posts below because I know some of you live for them! :P

The Props of Comic Con Portend the Future

September 5, 2014  |  Gaming, Guest Writers

[Disclaimer: Article was provided by Social Monsters]

For those of us who live for fandom, the San Diego Comic Con is heaven with good WiFi. Seeing props from the past ignite our passion, but seeing ones from the future awaken our imaginations. This is where we get our teasers, create our theories, and sometimes decide whether or not the upcoming spectacular will live up to our standards. This year’s Comic Con delivered with sneak peeks into the upcoming Marvel universe, The Games franchise, and video games turned movie.

[Fall TV 2014] NBC’s New Fall Shows

September 1, 2014  |  Fall TV 2014, TV

And we’re down to the last part of the lists, NBC has green lighted the most shows with 13 on the new roster but will air only 6 this fall.  The problem with NBC is that they always approve a lot and by mid-season they just discard the ones they didn’t air yet.  Late May the list had 14 new shows and by mid-summer they kicked one off!  So let’s get to the list.

[Fall TV 2014] FOX’s New Fall Shows

September 1, 2014  |  Fall TV 2014, TV

We are almost done with the lists now, just one more left after this one.  FOX is one of those networks famous for pretty much AMERICAN IDOL and its animated Sundays, this season they green-lighted (gave the OK) for ten new shows a couple of which are limited time series which means once this season is over they will just disappear.  This Fall we will see the airing of four of those ten shows and so let’s get cracking!

[Fall TV 2014] The CW’s New Fall Shows

August 31, 2014  |  Fall TV 2014, TV

The CW this year decided to green light only four shows and therefore making this list the easiest and simplest of them all.  Two shows were given a mid-season airing date while two will air in October.  Also something to note is that BEAUTY & THE BEAST as well as HART OF DIXIE haven’t received an airing date therefore they too will be postponed for mid-season as well.  So let’s get to introducing the new shows:

[Fall TV 2014] CBS’s New Fall Shows

August 31, 2014  |  Fall TV 2014, TV

Now that we started with the ABC Network (read here if you missed it) it’s time to shift onto the CBS Network’s new shows.  The best thing about CBS is that they only green-lighted 8 new shows with just 5 airing this fall.  They usually play it safe by green-lighting spin-offs of their popular franchises CSI and NCIS.  Anyways, let’s start with the shows airing this fall.
