I didn’t realize it’s been a month since I wrote a blog post. How time flies. No change here, but I have had other things to do. So much to watch on TV and online, so blogging hasn’t been on my mind lately. First of all, I have been watching ’24’ on Disney plus. It only cost 1.99 euros (2,24 dollars) for a month. It’s over soon, but I didn’t know they’ve had so many other TV shows to watch, so I think I won’t be cancelling it. They have many old shows like ‘The Golden girls’, ‘Bones’ and ‘The Muppets show’. Then there are new ones, like ‘Loki’ (I already watched that) and ‘WandaVision’. The problem with the channel is that it buffers a lot on the laptop, even if I have a fast connection. I don’t think I want to pay for something that gives me problems. I have the app, too, but the screen is too small to watch for a longer time. I prefer a bigger screen. I usually wouldn’t pay for a channel because most of them only have one or two contents that interest me. It’s the reason why Netflix has never interested me.
What comes to other things, there is no change. If there was something, I probably already forgot about it, or it’s not worth mentioning. Until next time.
I can’t sail across the ocean to say this so I write it instead.
Happy 4th of July to my American friends!
Even though I never been there and never met anyone of you, I still have a big respect for you. As a European, America has had a big influence on me. Most of my favourite things are American. When I speak English, it happens to turn into American English. I haven’t noticed myself how I pronounce English when I talk though. Maybe it’s a mix. I found this website where you can hear the different pronouncing styles between American and British English. It can be a bit of both. I guess you have to talk to a native before you know which one it is. Even if I write this blog in British English, that American one keeps coming into my thoughts. The spelling is sometimes a little different so I have to check it out from Google. The word ‘practise’ is the one of the hardest I seem to confuse with. In the end, the most imported thing is to be understood no matter what the spelling is.
Most of my favourite bands and artists are American (Madonna, Michael Jackson, Pink, Prince, Bon Jovi, Aerosmith) The same goes with movies and actors (Tom Hanks, Johnny Depp, Lee Pace). American’s really are good at the entertainment business. They have the money to make good TV shows as well. At least there used to be good ones. Most of the shows I watched has ended (Bones, Mythbusters, Person of interest). Soon Game of Thrones will end too. Good things come to an end which is a shame. If there only would interesting new show but I don’t care any of them. They’re running out of good ideas over there. It’s not only America but in general. I don’t watch anything on TV anymore. Luckily the internet is full of those great shows that were made in the US in the past.
Every country has its downsides and so does America. No one is perfect. We all have our bad sides but we all should be proud of who we are and where we’re coming from.
So have a happy 4th of July to all Americans and who lived there for years. Stay safe and enjoy your day no matter how you celebrate it.
That’s what I think when I see what kind of TV shows or movies people watch. Some people have no vision. In my opinion that is. What most people watch are things I don’t care about. Especially people I follow on social media. When they talk about movies they’ve seen or TV shows they’re watching, I just get bored. I feel I have nothing in common with them. I won’t stop following them though. They can watch what they like. I’m not criticising other people tastes. I’m sure they don’t really care what I watch either. I’m just saying, I don’t think they have the same kind of vision I have. I don’t mean my vision is better, it’s just different.
I don’t understand the hype over certain blockbuster movies that out there right now or in the past. I just haven’t been interesting in them. For example, I never cared about the Harry Potter movies. I never even wanted to read the books. I don’t read books but if I did, I still wouldn’t. Every time I see or hear about Potter, I just roll my eyes.
Marvel movies like Avangers, Iron Man, Spider-man and Captain America. I’m just not interested no matter how many recommendations there is. The only Marvel movie I’ve cared about was Guardians of the Galaxy because it was fun and Lee Pace was in it. I might see Doctor Strange but that’s only because of Benedict Cumberbatch. I’m not even sorry for being interested in a movie because one of my favorite actors is in it. That’s usually not my motive to be interested in a movie.
X-men and Fast and the furious. Hello how many movies are there gonna be?! Soon they’re coming out of our ears. Enough is enough. Doesn’t Hollywood have any other visions?! Just saying.
Again I’m not criticising what people watch but TV shows that are popular among other people are those I don’t care about. I never liked unnatural things (a.k.a. creepy stuff) so shows like Supernatural, The Walking Dead, American Horror story and shows like that are not my cup of tea. Even people talking about them bores me. In Tumblr especially.
What’s even worse are movies becoming TV shows. Have they run out of ideas or what?! Then there are making new versions of old shows. When they made a new Knight Rider, I knew it wouldn’t last. Now they’re planning a new MacGyver. They are spoiling the past of my childhood. You can’t remake classics. It will never be the same. There are different actors therefore it won’t make it better. Maybe it’s cheaper to make remakes instead of new ones or just laziness. Twin Peaks is not a remake (more of a comeback) but I hope it won’t be a disaster even if some of the actors will be the same. The same with Prison break (which I look forward to) I really hope they won’t be a mistake.
Honestly I’m getting bored with all these new TV shows. I don’t even know what they’re called because I don’t care. I prefer older or shows that have been on for several seasons. Unfortunately all the shows I’m watching are coming to an end (Person of interest and Bones). Game of thrones seems to be the only show worth watching but even that will end some day. Then the 4th season of BBC Sherlock coming of course. I’ve stopped watching The Blacklist because it wasn’t as exciting anymore and the story just got ridiculous. So nothing interesting is going on or coming up on TV. There’s no point of recommending anything since I won’t interest me. No House of cards, Better call Saul or any other of those because, well simply, I don’t care. I have a vision but my vision is different from yours so you better deal with it.
