No, 30 Rock, why do you have to leave me?

1 Feb

Yesterday the last episode ever of 30 Rock was broadcast and I feel like this:

lemon crying

I don’t want it to end. It’s one of my all time favourite shows because it was funny and smart and nerdy and just everything. ALL THE FEEELS!!! Tina Fey is the woman I want to be one day, well, kind of. Except for the being on TV part. She is smart, sassy and incredibly funny and talented and she loves Star Wars!! I on the other hand have no talent for purposefully making a fool out of myself or doing it with style.

I could write so many things about this show but I won’t. 7 seasons is an alright run, well for Comedy it’s rather short but overall it was good. The show never was a ratings hit much to my dismay so I’m glad it even stayed on this long. It coined so many wonderful phrases and catchwords that I’ll celebrate with my favourite 30 Rock and Liz Lemon/Tina Fey moments in a gif-parade. Sorry if you expected more but my little heart is broken and I don’t know what to do in the future except re-watch 30 Rock, maybe. But it’s just not the same. There will never be a new episode *imagine the Piano of eternal sadness playing in the background*

bad ideas

That’s right, the Jack and Liz bromance has taught me everything about business and life that I’ll ever need to know.

I want to go to there

Blergh, I never go to there.

Running for food, duh!

liz-lemon-yes-to

I especially agree to the staying in more part.

stride of pride

Yup, Stride of Pride, that’s how I roll!

Liz struggles through 7 years, trying to have it all, love, a fulfilling job, friends, a family. And in the end, guess what? She’s got it all! Liz Lemon is my spirit animal! Also, she got married while dressed as Princess Leia. GAH!!

 

LEMON OUT!

(Maybe, when I’m not so sad about this show ending and I have more time (LOL) I will do a best quotes post because there sure are a lot of them. Maybe, maybe…but don’t get your hopes up)

If you were looking for something more substantial from me today, I was asked to do my first guest post (YAYAYAYAYAYAYAY) by my lovely friend Anju so be sure to head over to her blog and check that out. It’s about actual dreams and what happens to my dream-stalkers.

Getting Caught Up

29 Oct

I realised that I haven’t written much in October but there was not much happening in my life these past weeks. I’m still too lazy on schoolwork and should definitely look for a thesis and I think I know where I’m going to end but I’m also not in a big rush at the moment. Agh, I’m too comfortable in my procrastinating ways and this weekend my uncle was/ still is here with his family so I’ve been hanging out with them quite a bit. My focus is still a bit lost but I fully plan on catching up with what I should have been doing this week. Thursday is a holiday over here which is always a good place to start with organising one’s thoughts and goals – or avoid it altogether and getting hooked up on Zombie fan fiction.

November will be NaNoWriMo – National Novel Writing Month – and even though I’m not planning on participating I’ll honour all of the writers out there with doing a 30 day book challenge. I’m not sure if this is such a good idea as some of you may be too caught up in your writing while I spam your inboxes with a post every day. Here are the topics I’ll be blogging about the next 30 days:

Day 01 – Best book you read last year
Day 02 – A book that you’ve read more than 3 times
Day 03 – Your favorite series
Day 04 – Favorite book of your favorite series

Day 07 – Most underrated book
Day 08 – Most overrated book
Day 09 – A book you thought you wouldn’t like but ended up loving
Day 10 – Favorite classic book
Day 11 – A book you hated
Day 12 – A book you used to love but don’t anymore
Day 13 – Your favorite writer
Day 14 – Favorite book of your favorite writer

Day 28 – Favorite title
Day 29 – A book everyone hated but you liked
Day 30 – Your favorite book of all time

In other news, I’ve been following the presidential race in the US because a) you can’t get around it and b) it’s quite entertaining and easier than our political races. Much has already been written about Mitt Romney and especially Todd Akin’s new definition of rape. I hope all of you who live in the US and get to vote on Nov. 6th know who to vote for. I’m going to throw a bunch of videos at you in the following of stuff I recently came across, so here it goes then:

First of all, let Joss Whedon, the creator of Buffy, explain to you how a President Romney would equal a Zombie apocalypse.

Then we have Tina Fey speaking out against Todd Akin’s attempt at redefining ‘rape’. I adore Tina Fey and this only makes me love her more (as if that were even possible).

Want to see a bunch of awesome actors telling you to sign the Bill concerning female reproductive rights? Then this is for you #drawtheline because it’s important. Sign the bill at http://drawtheline.org and tell your friends about it.

If you don’t know where you stand on marriage equality, take a look at this.

And last but not least, here’s Ellen making fun of the fact that Bic now promotes pens especially for women. We’ve been using man-pens all these years, can you believe it? Oh Ellen, you magnificent funny lady. She was awarded the Mark Twain Prize for American Humour this month which she totally deserves.

Ok, this is enough for now, I’ll be in your inboxes daily in November. Take care, especially those of you in the vicinity of Sandy. Stay safe everyone!

A new Season is upon us!

4 Oct

No, not speaking about autumn, although I love it. Leaves changing colour and the air that is not yet winter but isn’t summer anymore either. It’s gorgeous except when it rains like this morning and you start to think about how to best build an ark #truestory

What comes with autumn though, is the new TV season which means a TV junkie like me gets to see all his precious shows return to the screen, along with many new shows to explore. This year, I’m a little late to the party, it took me some weeks to catch up with everything TV-wise that was already going on but I finally got caught up this week, thanks to the national holiday in Germany yesterday. (Side-note: Yes, yesterday was the Mean Girls day but it was also the day we Germans celebrate the re-unification of our very own country, which happened on October 3rd, 1989. You’re welcome for that history lesson btw)

Continuing with what I wanted to write about (yep, sometimes there is an actual point to my posts), here’s what I watch right now:

Parenthood

So, so good. I love this show to pieces and all their characters! It saddens me though, that Haddie left for College and is not featured as regularly than she was before. Also, Kristina’s breast cancer hits a little bit too close to home after my last 2 years but I won’t let it keep me from enjoying one of my favourite shows.
Also, also, what will become of Sarah’s fiancée considering she has quite some chemistry with her new boss. They’re more age appropriate for each other as well *fingerscrossed*

Bones

Same as Parenthood. Cannot get enough of Brennan, Booth and the hot Angela. Now that Booth and Brennan are finally an item with baby and all I’m looking forward to their whole new dynamic.

Glee

It’s annyoing as ever but I can’t get away. They sing, you know? So, I’m hooked until they pull a Grey’s Anatomy on me. The new McKinley High students that joined the choir this year are just replacements for those who left the school. Sorry, but Marley is so set up to be the next Rachel. Unique will be a combination of Kurt and Mercedes. Also, 3 episodes without a real appearance by Santana is just wrong. I don’t care much for Brittany without Santana. Same goes for Blaine, he’s just boring without Kurt. Really, Kurt and Rachel are my favourites and I like that they reunited in New York. Although I’m dreading all that Finn drama which is coming our way but ok. Let’s hope it blows over quickly.

New Girl

Adorable, but I mostly watch because Schmitt is hilarious and CeCe is HOT! Jess and Nick are the characters I like least, I know it sounds stupid but what can I do?! This whole will-they-won’t-they set-up has just been done too much.

How I Met Your Mother

Please, let Barney and Robin marry and tell us who that damn mother is! Love it though! Just bought Season 1 on DVD which is a huge commitment from my standpoint. What I’ve seen so far was hilarious and I can’t wait to see the rest of the season and hope it’s as good. Need a 1 minute recap of all seasons? Let Barney help you with that:

Revenge

Eh, I think Season 1 was probably enough for me. Will try watching another episode and then I think I’m done. Too much intrigue for my liking. I probably already fell off the wagon a couple episodes before the season 1 finale.

30 Rock

Tonight the final season will begin and I’m sad, oh so sad, about this because it means I will not see Tina Fey on a regular basis anymore. I don’t know how many times I watched this show but it’s a lot and I can only hope that the end of 30 Rock will allow Tina to make more movies like Mean Girls. At least she’s under contract with Universal for a couple of more years. We will have to see what that brings.

Also, here’s the Liz Lemon Guide to Life and Love. It’s perfect!

Go On

This is a new show on NBC staring Matthew Perry, also known as Chandler from Friends. His new character, Ryan, just lost his wife and has to deal with all his emotional shit by going to a transitional help group which is very, very funny. I laughed a lot and cannot wait for more episodes to come. NBC just gave this show a full season order which is all I can ask for at the moment. It’s much better than Perry’s last year show Mr. Sunshine which, despite it’s great cast, just wasn’t so well rounded and funny.

The New Normal

Is a new show by Ryan Murphy, the dude who created Glee, yes. This gay couple wants to have a child so they look for a surrogate who turns out to come from a family of women who get pregnant as teens. She’s 25, has a 9 year-old daughter and a grandmother who is such a Republican, it’s basically the best thing about the show. Leisha Hailey will do a story arc soon, so I’m sold!

Cougar Town

My favourite cul-de-sac-crew will be back in January and it’s gonna be awesome because all they ever do is hang out, have fun and get drunk. Seriously, what is not to like about that? It’ll be interesting to see what the switch from ABC to TBS  changed for the show, or if it changed anything. Here’s your 30 second recap of the entire show.

And another adorable clip where they all sing.

Rizzoli & Isles

Those lovely ladies will be back in the beautiful month of November with 5 more episodes to their 3rd season. They’ll probably still not go canon but for that the gods invented fan fiction and subtext recaps on afterellen.com

The newest promo photo is just such a tease, candlelight, them staring at each other…
