An Example of Doing Comedy Characters Right...

Image
I just had my thoughts on doing comedy characters right.  Here's my comparison:


Here's a comparison of Akiko Narumi and that annoying Cassidy Cornhell.  So what went right and what went wrong?  So sure Akiko can get ditzy or bossy BUT she actually is pretty helpful even if she can screw up, in fact she really contributes to plot one way or another.  On the other hand, Cassidy Cornhell is really nothing more than a self-centered spoiled brat like...


That obnoxious brat Hannah Montana!!!!

Or two...


We can have Genta vs. Spike.  Some people don't like Genta, that's okay but I do find him funny.  So both Genta and Spike are meant to be comedy characters and can be as hyper (or horrid for some) but Genta contributes to plot, Spike is just there to be stupid.  I don't find Spike annoying though compared to Cassidy and Devin.


You might as well learn some stuff on how Yatsudenwani is being used for comedy.

So I guess that's just one example of how to do comedy charac…

Day Four of Total Tori Hour...

Image
Well it's Day Four of Total Tori Hour, just didn't bother to enter the contest since it's a contest for children... I would IF I had the chance to win her.  So what's next?  So I guess this is where Tori Vega is stuck with idiots that piss me off as it pisses her...


So it's "Survival of the Hottest" which is one incredibly annoying episode for poor Tori.  So they all go to the beach and some very disrespectful guys park their RV in front of her.  So Cat says she'll just go pee but what does she do?  She dilly dallies and has some fun while everyone is being cooked up in that huge sauna. I really felt sorry for Tori having to endure Jade and Trina inside that van while Cat has all that fun!  Cat, why can't you consider the time huh?  So yeah, I wanted to really ring Cat's neck for leaving poor Tori in that van... and also for Trina's really getting annoying in here.  Quite a contrast between Daniela Monet's role as Tootie in this one!


My Handling of Male Characters

Image
I really don't have much on handling male characters but here's a few... I pretty much like to portray males as the main protagonists and antagonists.  Now for some other stuff...


The male eye candy.  I tend to treat these characters as stronger but less intelligent characters to balance them out in every way.  I tend to use them for lead roles or villainous roles.  Not necessarily stupid though but strong characters who need emotional support and have a gentle interior.


The message of inner beauty is within for me, I prefer to use the pretty heroine x ugly hero.  However I do also like handsome hero x average looking girl too.  I like to use the ugly characters as the more intelligent types than the handsome characters.


For handsome villains, I prefer to make them less intelligent but have a certain degree of cunning.  I am yet to use the handsome villain liking a geeky girl but I might use that.


The use of unbalanced nerds like Renn Cossaka and Billy.  While there are smart …

My Handling of Female Characters in My Writing

Image
I better do some examination of how I handle women in my writing.  These are in general...


I tend to play a lot of roles for pretty young girls as bigger roles both heroines and villains.  Also they tend to play the most embarrassing roles like being harassed, having a villain who desires them, heroine support and to show beauty is but a bonus.  I really don't care much for the non-attractive except to use them as mentors, competent chefs and teachers but some non-attractive girls do get into this level.  Beauty can be a curse you know.


The use of funny girls.  They are neither pretty nor ugly but they qualify as adorable looking like Ako Hayasaka.  I also kind of like to use them to a certain extent in the same way pretty girls are used in my fic.  However I am yet to execute the idea of handsome villain lusting after an average looking geeky girl.  I prefer the cheerful types over the overly dumb like Trina or Cat...


Female protagonists.  I usually use the average looking (like …

Silvio Santos Does Goggle V Comedy Edit...

Image
Here's one funny edit done on Youtube of Silvio Santos singing Goggle V.  What do I think of it?  I think it's really very funny and a good tribute to Goggle V too.  So enjoy this video!

Westerners Getting into Oriental Tea Time

Image
I had my thoughts on the 14th episode of Shinkenger where Bulk Mr. Brown meets the Shinkengers and had his experience with a tea time ceremony.  Mr. Brown drank down some hot matcha and said it was quite bitter.  But maybe, just maybe if he drank it cold it might be quite different.
In the recent years, Chatime has managed to click to the Western audience perhaps with its own adaptations.  Maybe, just maybe hot tea didn't click so cold tea became what made Eastern tea flavors click on the West.  While hot tea is what is frequently in our head, cold tea seems to become the click fad like cold coffee in coffee shops, cold tea became another click factor too.  My thought also involve...
With East-West marriages happening in America, it becomes a necessity to do cultural adjustments.  Having Eastern in-laws means getting into an immersion like learning chopsticks, drinking hot tea and a result of a a mixed marriage can mean mixed cultures.  So hot tea becomes cold tea, you eat pasta …

Day Three of Total Tori Hour

Image
So it's day three and I was able to watch two episodes.


First episode dealt with Dale Squires.  I really hate this guy, why does he take all the credit?  So he did credit Tori Vega at the end, but still he deserved that beating for taking away the credit and DOING NOTHING during the filming process and Tori has to do ALL THE WORK.  Ouch, poor Tori Vega I wish I could pat her shoulder.


So Felix Ryan was in Victorious as a guest?  Heh, really I'm just imagining the worst since he acted as Spike in Power Rangers Samurai.  Compared to being funny in Power Rangers Samurai (while some find him horrid), here I wanna snap his wrist for caressing Tori's hair.  I'm just glad he didn't appear in Shinkenger to rape Mako!


The second round today was Ice Cream for Ke$ha which really was a cruel episode to Tori.  So Trina makes Tori do that STUPID commitment when she was 6 and tortures Tori non-stop.  At least Tori had the guts to drown Trina even if she doesn't kill the latte…

Self-Indulgence Mucks Up My Writing

Image
I had my thoughts on Fantasy Leader's golden nuggets or glittering gems whatever you may want to call them, pointing out that I lack the self-discipline of writing.  He had mentioned that Toshiki Inoue got ruined later by self-indulgence while being disciplined got Naruhisa Arakawa to improve.  I wonder what the problem of Yasuko Kobayashi is too.  I had my thoughts on self-indulgence to start with... that is excessive or unrestrained gratifications of one's own appetites, desires or whims evidenced by these self-indulgences and how I put them into writing...


I'd probably start on the use of gorgeous women and their roles I give them.  Pretty much my weakness as I tend to mistreat them a lot in my writing compared to the ugly characters who play the safer roles or die easy deaths.  I tend to give a lot of focus on female characters or even trap them in love triangles, unrequited love, villainous crush, etc. to give them emphasis on plots.  For example in Super Sentai vs. N…

Day Two of Total Tori Hour... I Missed the First Half!

Image
It's day two but too bad I missed the first segment.  Fortunately I didn't miss the rather antagonistic sequel where Tori promises a prom but Jade really does attempt to mess Tori up.  Now what in the world is going on?  So it's predictable that it's Jade who ruins everything, she even brings Doug the Diaper Guy.  However she does get her revenge on Jade by making the latter queen and Doug the Diaper Guy the king of the prom which results to some laughs after I cried for Tori.  I missed the first half because I was waiting for that turkey leg to cook... then again this is not important.

Even at the end when it rains, it's still a very good ending.  At least Jade got what she deserved with being queen with Doug the Diaper Guy who I doubt it we'll see him again.


So yeah it was a pretty good ending, way to go Tori for dealing with that snob Jade.  Sometimes I wish Jade got more than that but it's too late for me to shift her status in the fan fic Super Sentai…

Another Childhood Nostalgic Crush: Bridgette Wilson

Image
I remembered myself as a frustrated kid who had an obsession with learning killer moves so I also watched the Mortal Kombat film and played the games even if it were rated M.  What happened was that I really had my crush on Bridgette Wilson as a child.  I haven't seen any other films of her, all I know is that she's now married to athlete Pete Sampras until present and having two sons and she's still hot at 39 thanks to no surgeries.

She did portray the idea of don't let a pretty face fool you, you could get killed when she performed the role of Sonya Blade.  Now here's an older picture...
Here is she with her two children.  However thanks to no surgeries, she doesn't look like a melted tupperware like Pamela Anderson's current state.

Rhian Ramos Howell for Board Walk Designer Jeans

Image
Well I do still have my Rhian Ramos Howell hangovers though maybe not as serious as they are now.  I do agree she really looks hot in these photos... but I might watch her movie Sosy Problems first which could be similar to the American movie "Wild Child"... 


Hangover from Total Tori Hour...

Image
I did have my hangovers from this...

The Emma Roberts taking over Nickelodeon gave me some hangovers but I was 21, she was 15 that time so pretty much not a serious hangover.  But still...

Well after the Total Tori hour last night, I just had my hangover that hit me real hard on the head.  Ouch.  So yeah, Total Tori hour madness will start again and I just had my thoughts on how hard hitting it was.  But maybe not as serious as the hangovers from other girls like Emma Roberts, Liu Yi Fei, Esther Liu and Rin Takanashi (whose photos may flood my celebrity blog soon!).

Coffee or Tea... My Thoughts of Drinking Both!

Image
While I had my fascination with Chatime or how serving cold tea is now a new fad, yet cold coffee is sold at Chatime as well.  So I had my obsession with tea drinks lately while I would still snag a cup of coffee whenever I feel like it.  On the other hand, I have thought of that both drinks are beneficial in some ways- they both contain antioxidants and a mood lifter.  I had my thoughts on the tea and coffee industry with them as both competition and later substitutes.

In the past, coffee shops were the fad so even with an expensive cup of coffee, people felt good.  Coffee was more served than tea.  In American history, the Boston Tea Party used coffee as a protest against the British occupation.  From my time in my high school to early years in College, coffee was the fad.  However times changed a bit for the coffee shops.... they began to innovate while they were still known for coffee, they began to offer a wide variety of products in order to survive the evolution of business.
