About Me

I know I've done blogs like this in the past, including my first official blog, but I love to talk about what I like and see if anyone out there in the blogosphere likes what I like and see if there are any common likes and similarities out there.

When it comes to TV, I pretty much watch anything, except reality shows, those are the stupidest things ever, no offense to those who love them, but I really don't care for them, that's all that seems to be on TV nowadays. Now certain shows, like Cake Boss, Pawn Stars, Auction Kings, I'm not sure if those count as reality shows, but if they do, I love them. But other shows, like crime dramas and stuff I watch. My most favorite shows are CSI:NY, Law and Order: SVU, Top Gear, which is a Britain based car show where these 3 guys do different stunts and stuff with cars. Like they'll build their own limos out of cars or build their own RV out of cars, it's funny. And other shows, like Cake Boss, Pawn Stars, Auction Kings are cool because of the stuff they get or do.

This is what the crew from Top Gear look like. It's a British based TV show, so it's probably no surprise that not that many know the show except for the newly made American version of it. Personally, the British version trumps the American version any day. My favorite one is the one to the far left, with the dark brown hair and dark brown leather jacket. He's so cute, but then again, I guess I got a thing for English guys with accents.
When it comes to movies, I like virtually any movie, except movies where there's someone constantly cussing, too much sex stuff or anything overtly violent. I like movies that make me laugh, have a good story to it or is got one of my favorite actors in it. I mean, the movie could totally suck but if it had Jet Li, Chow Yun-fat or Hugh Jackman in it, I'll watch it. Most of the movies I watch usually have one thing in common: they're either martial arts movies, movies with an English actor in it, like What a Girl Wants, or Bend It Like Beckham or The Full Monty.

When it comes to movies, I have a lot of favorite actors, some of them aren't even actors, some are musicians, like for example, Mick Jagger, is a cool actor despite what some say about him not being a good actor. My favorite movie with him is Freejack and Ned Kelly. And other actors, include Jet Li, Chow Yun-fat, Hugh Jackman, Sylvester Stallone

Favorite Artists

You know how everyone has that one band/artist that they're totally devoted to? Like some people will call themselves a 'Beatles' person or someone will call themselves a 'Who' person or a 'rap' person or a 'rock person. Well, when it comes to me, my tastes in music are all over the place, in all kinds of genres and decades. Firstly, I'm a massive fan of British rock, like The Beatles, The Rolling Stones and Paul McCartney. Those 3 musicians I could listen to forever, all day and all night if given the chance. And when it comes to other genres, I love Latin music, like Enrique Iglesias, Shakira, Carlos Santana. And just regular rock music like Foreigner, Aerosmith, Van Halen, you name it. And I'm also an avid fan of R&B, jazz, New Orleans-style jazz. That stuff is very relaxing, when it comes to R&B, I could just about listen to any R&B artist, like Aaliyah, Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder, Ray Charles, or Jazz, like Etta James, Ella Fitzgerald, Aretha Franklin, you name it. I love music in general, the only music I don't listen to is new wave stuff, like Nirvana, The Sex Pistols, or rap. sorry, you find that junk on my MP3. Most of the stuff you'll find on this lovely little piece of technology is mainly Rolling Stones, Paul McCartney, The Beatles and the occasional Latin artist mixed in there somewhere. Here are some pictures of some of the artists that I listen to, now I'm not necessarily saying that these artists are better than what others may listen to, I just happen to like these musicians:
