MUSIC : Pearl Jam Latest – The Fixer



From the upcoming album – BACKSPACER.

Pearl Jam – The Fixer

When something’s on let me shed a light on it
When something’s cold let me put a little fire on it
If something’s old I wanna put a bit of shine on it
When something’s gone I wanna fight to get it back again

Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah
Fight to get it back again
Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah

When something’s broke I wanna put a bit of fixing on it
If something’s bored I wanna put a little excited on it
If something’s low I wanna put a little high on it
If something’s lost I wanna fight to get it back again

Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah
Fight to get it back again
Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah

When signals cross, I want to put a bit of straight on it
If there’s no love, I want to try to love again.
I’ll say your prayers I’ll take your side
I promise a way to make light
I’ll dig your grave

Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah
Fight to get it back again
Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah

3 Comedy Series That Are Worth Your Time, and 5 Reasons Why You Should Watch Them

Besides watching the second season of True Blood, Breaking Bad plus Dollhouse and Fringe (refer to this entry), I'm now hooked to these 3 new (and not so new) comedy series. I think you guys should check it out.

Party Down


What it's about :

Party Down is about a group of struggling actors who are stuck working for tips while waiting for their big break. As employees of the L.A. catering company "Party Down," these misfits mingle with guests at everything from sweet sixteen parties to the most lavish Hollywood soirees.

5 reasons why you should watch it :

  1. Created by Paul Rudd and friends. Rudd was initially slated to star in the series but declined because he was so impressed by Adam Scott portrayal of the character Henry.
  2. Bill Haverchuck (Martin Starr) from Freaks and Geeks is in it. Yaay!
  3. The rest of the cast are amazing – Ken Marino, Jane Lynch, Adam Scott and Lizzy Caplan are familiar funny faces doing what they do best.
  4. It’s freakin’ hilarious! ..and dirty. But unlike shows that resort to dirty stuff for cheap laughs, Party Down's dirty jokes are earned. It’s a bit of Arrested Development meets Undeclared meets The Office (in my opinion).
  5. Not only riotously funny but the show also touches on some great, dark and ultimately hilarious subjects. In a culture driven by success, the show looks at which point a life becomes a failure, and what constitutes a loser. You’ll laugh at the jokes, but you can’t help sympathizing at them too.


Eastbound and Down


What it's about :

Relief Pitcher Kenny Powers (Danny McBride) was poised to rule the Big Leagues, but two things got in the way: his fading fastball and his insufferable personality. After a spectacular career flame-out, Kenny came home to Shelby County, NC and picked up a job as a substitute gym teacher (mostly so his brother Dustin would stop threatening to kick him out). He's spent every moment since then cashing in the last of his dying fame while plotting his inevitable comeback... one beer at a time.

5 reasons why you should watch it :

  1. I don’t know about you guys, but I think Danny McBride is a mullet-haired comedic genius. His jokes are crude and offensive, but never failed to make me laugh.
  2. When you have McBride, you have Ferrell (Will that is). He pops up in a couple episodes and stole the scenes.
  3. The main character Kenny Powers is so unbelievably repugnant, misanthropic, major a-hole that you have to see it to believe it. He’s an egomaniacal prick who doesn’t give a shit who he offends. And you can’t help but laugh at his mean jokes.
  4. Darryl Philbin (Craig Robinson) from The Office is in it. Yaay!
  5. Kenny Powers is so quote-worthy like freakin’ Chuck Norris. Check this out.


Head Case

 Head Case Gallery 2009

What it's about :

Dr. Elizabeth Goode (Alexandra Wentworth) is brash, unconventional and judgmental in her own unique method of therapy, and thus, has become the "it" therapist to those in Hollywood in need of a "Goode" mind adjustment. Her office is filled with a who's who from the world of entertainment, sports and music. Although her method at times is a little, shall we say, off kilter, they always wind up returning for a session.

5 reasons why you should watch it :

  1. Every episodes featured different stars all playing themselves in guest starring roles. Some of the guests featured are Rosanna Arquette, Andy Dick, Lea Thompson, Christopher Lloyd, Cindy Margolis and Jeff Goldblum.
  2. I just love the improvisational comedy. There are story outlines, and premises but with a lot of improvisation between the characters. So the quality of a given episode hangs a lot on the celebrity guest stars ability to play along with the show’s low-key sensibility. That’s brilliant IMHO.
  3. It has the same vibe as The Office and Curb Your Enthusiasm with the single camera and no laugh track approach. It makes me feel like a voyeur.. :P
  4. The main character Dr. Goode is narcissistic, judgmental, self-involved, and non-relatable to her patients but Wentworth makes the character so likeable and twisted that even her facial expressions are sometimes more humorous than the wild dialogue.
  5. One of the reasons the series worked is because of it’s length. At only 15 minutes per episode (sometimes less), I think it was intended to be sharp and snappy.

MUSIC : Pearl Jam is back!

Pearl Jam performed their brand new track 'Got Some' from their forthcoming album, Backspacer on the first Tonight Show with Conan O' Brien.

Almost 20 years and counting..
but these guys still rocks it HARD!

TV : First Look At The New V Miniseries

I did post about it in this entry a few months ago. Here's the first trailer for the new V miniseries, coming soon.

The leader of the Visitors, Anna is played by Morena Baccarin. Fans of Firefly and Stargate SG-1 might've recognized her. The series also stars Elizabeth Mitchell (Lost) & Scott Wolf (remember him? Double Dragon? No?). 

The trailer looks promising; reminded me of The 4400. But still, us the old-skool fans, was kinda' hoping for the whole rodent-swallowing thing. And no offense, but we prefer Diana. 

But still, after seeing this trailer, I'm actually very interested to see it. I would love to see how the new concept and premise works. What do you guys think?

Sports : Take a bow United..


Jurnal : Alhamdulillah..

Phew! It's been awhile since the last update. So many things going on in my life, at work and at home.. I can't even find the time, energy and mood to jot down a single line here in this blog. I mean.. I don't even have time to write a review of Watchmen for god's sake! (p/s : Like it but don't love it).

Well, to be honest, my life and my attention suddenly shifted to one thing only. My world suddenly just revolved around a very important person. It seems that my focus and my purpose in life is only for one reason..

And the reason is him..

Ladies and gentlemen, say hello to my son, Muhammad Affan Rifqy born 11th April 2009, at 5.05am, weighing 3.3kg. Alhamdulillah, both mommy and baby is healthy.

And now I'm a father/ayah.. :)
