Have you ever had the feeling of opening a box and seeing anything but what you’ve expected? Or not getting something you’ve been promised?  

Disappointment is a psychological result, it is a subjective response related to the anticipated rewards.  Some people recover quickly, others mire in frustration or blame and worst some become depressed.

Okay I’ll give you an example and explain why I came up with the exact opening statement.  I just found out over the week end that ABC just cancelled Brothers and Sisters.  I know that series end, shows end.  Ending is like death it is inevitable.  I am fully aware of that but what’s disappointing is how it came to an end and how it ended.  It’s like 2007 again when The CW Television decided to end Gilmore Girls.

These shows have been loved because of the story line, rapport of the casts and effective acting.  It’s just really saddening to see these shows end.  I say yes it matters how long a show has been there but getting a good and memorable ending is something the fans deserve.  It’s called giving justice to the show itself, its existence.

Seeing the news about Brothers and Sisters’ cancellation has been my major disappointment last week.  It has overtaken two frustrating situations in my life lately, one is my failure to attend my youngest brother’s wedding and the second one is being sick for days. 

Again, some people recover quickly, others mire in frustration and some even gets depressed.  It’s been 4 years now since Gilmore Girls ended and I can still feel the frustration maybe with Brothers and Sisters’ cancellation, I can try being depressed this time. Nah, I’m just kidding ha-ha.  I’m ending my post with a heavy heart; I just need to remind myself of this so I’m posting this video.

 

I’ve been busy the past two weeks with the following things.  Finally, I’m doing something concrete at work, it’s a welcome change and I’m not complaining at all.  Then two weeks ago I’ve attended a wedding and just this week end I went to travel outside Luzon for rest and recreation.  Aside from this, I’ve been addicted to the US shows and all of them have premiered last September. 

Joining the long list (Brothers & Sisters, The Amazing Race, Survivor, Supernatural and Glee) of my shows is Hell Cats.  At first, I wasn’t really planning to watch it for the reason that I don’t want to be hooked and I want to devote more time for reading and doing jigsaw puzzles.  But out of curiosity I checked it out and now it’s too late for me to walk away because I think and I’m sure I’ll like it more than Glee since the story is about dancing and dancing is my first love.  Aside from that, it is a CWTV show and I’ve been a loyal follower of their shows from Gilmore Girls to One Tree Hill to Supernatural and I have only good words for these shows.

Anyway, the series is based on the book Cheer: Inside the Secret World of College Cheerleaders by journalist Kate Torgovnick and is described as “Election meets Bring It On”. Actor Tom Welling teamed with Kevin Murphy to executive produce the series, which was initially given the name Cheer.  The story is about Marti Perkins, a pre-law college student at Lancer University, who lost her scholarship and has no other choice but to join the college’s cheer squad, the Hellcats, in order to maintain it.  While the squad is also having problems themselves because they need to win the nationals otherwise the cheer leading program will be cut.  (Source Wikipedia)

Being under CWTV, I can only expect that this series will not be just an ordinary show.  I know that conflicts will be greatly tackled.  One will be about the mother-daughter relationship and another will be about peers.  Now, as I’m writing it I’ve just realized that I have compromised my planned time for reading books and doing my puzzles once again but I know that this will be worth it.

 

Saturday evenings wouldn’t be complete without watching Gilmore Girls.  Next to Friends this is the show that really makes me happy.  I really love the Lorelai & Rory tandem.  And lately I’ve found myself ripping off my DVD collection so I’d get to watch it again.  The past 2 weekends were practically spent with these girls.  I love their comedic timing, the endless conversation, the right drama and I have to say the unique cast.  Everyone has their own character and you’ll love all of them.  From Taylor to Sookie to Luke to Lane and Rory’s love interests from Tristan to Dean to Jess and Logan.

And how can I even forget the music by Sam Phillips is the best.  It matches the theme and talking about the music, I really love the opening credits.  Carole King’s “Where you lead?” is just as perfect as the mother-daughter tandem.



As I was making this post, I’ve checked news about the show and visited the Wikipedia site and found out that creator Amy Sherman-Palladino might actually make a movie out of it.  Like most of the fans of the show I really didn’t like how the network WB ended the 7th and last season.  That strengthens a more reason for them to come up with a movie.  I hope this one pushes through I am already disappointed with the bad news about Friends the Movie.

Well, like I’ve said these past weeks were spent with the Gilmores and I’m really glad that I took time to rip off those DVDs because I was reminded of Macy Gray’s I Try.  How could I have forgotten how beautiful this song is?  So for those who have missed this song, I am sharing it to you guys!

This is how badly I missed the show.  Please producers make that movie please!



Games, changes and fears

When will they go from here?

When will they stop?

I believe that fate has brought us here

And we should be together

But were not

I play it off but I’m dreaming of you

I’ll keep it cool but I’m fiendin.

I try to say goodbye and I choke

I try to walk away and I stumble

Though I try to hide it it’s clear

My world crumbles when you are not near

Goodbye and I choke

I try to walk away and I stumble

Though I try to hide it, it’s clear

My world crumbles when you are not near

I may appear to be free

But I’m just a prisoner of your love

I may seem alright and smile when you leave

But my smiles are just a front

I play it off but I’m dreaming of you

I’ll keep my cool but I’m fiendin

I try to say goodbye and I choke

I try to walk away and I stumble

Though I try to hide it it’s clear

My world crumbles when you are not near

Here is my confession

May I be your possession?

Boy I need your touch

Your love kisses and such

With all my might I try

But this I can’t deny

I play it off but I’m dreaming of you

I’ll keep my cool but I’m fiendin

I try to say good bye and I choke

I try to walk away and I stumble

Though I try to hide it it’s clear

My world crumbles when you are not near

I have been a big fan of Gilmore Girls… and I have been looking for this song, “How to Dream” by Sam Phillips for years.  (I didn’t know the song until last sunday)… Well, I tried to look for it but I’m not that successful then. 

 

Until last Thursday April 4 I heard it again. Then, I bugged my friend Lanie for help.  I tried the internet, too.  Made a lot of comments to various blogs, asked from where I can find the song.  Then, I Googled it and luckily, Google made a very helpful reference to the GilmoreGirls.org, and I browsed every song until I have landed to Season 4 and found my song…

 

It’s really hard to look for a song which you don’t know the lyrics, the singer, and the song title.  And it being years ago, I had the trouble pinpointing from what actual Season and episode I heard the song.

 

I’m really happy that I have found this song… I can’t find the right words to say… I’m just totally happy right now.

 

Hope you like it like I do!
