Random Rants


Watching Kathy Griffin videos has been replaced by watching Sex and the City DVDs. I think this show has influenced me more than it should have. It's one of those things that needs to be relived during different points in one's life.

Nowadays, I'm not watching it just for the witty lines, the fashion, and the jack-off scenes. I'm understanding the stories, little or big (or Big), from a different perspective. And ok, I'm still into it because of the clothes. Besides, it wouldn't be Sex and the City without the awesome Patricia Field styling.

Nonetheless, it's such an iconic show because it not only represents sexual liberation and revolution but also friendship and of course, love in all forms... and sizes... and positions, etc.. But seriously, SATC was is a major social phenomenon.


Carrie Bradshaw put it best when she said Big was like Teflon for relationships, nothing sticks. I'm more of a Carrie, Samantha and Miranda rolled into one but this analogy struck me. Always 'It's Complicated' never 'In a Relationship'--and unfortunately, not necessarily by choice.

The Edge of Boring

That's it. I seriously miss the old Gaga. The one in a disco ball bra riding her disco stick. I wish she wouldn't things so seriously and stop shedding tears in her videos like a damsel whose shoulders the world rests on. I mean, she already started singing about her hair like it's the cure to cancer. Not that I don't like that song but come on. Also, are all the songs in her new album the kind sung during the opening or closing of a variety show? 

I actually like 'The Edge of Glory' but the dancing is a little too 'Confessions on a Dance Floor'. It's a surprisingly uneventful video considering it's Gaga. I like that she's wearing Gianni Versace though.

'Electric Chapel' is a hot track and she should make it her next single methinks and I hope she accompanies it with a fresh, smashing video.


  1. SATC is "educational"!
    "Always 'It's Complicated' never 'In a Relationship'--and unfortunately, not necessarily by choice." If it helps, you're not the only one.. It sucks, right? Haha. Anyway, nice blog! Just came across it while randomly checking Manila bloggers. :)

  2. SATC teaches you a lot alright. :)

    Enjoy the freedom! Thanks so much for dropping by!
