Survivor: Gabon - Finale

From left to right: Sugar, Kenny, Bob, Matty, Susie

Last night was the finale of Survivor: Gabon, and a bit lackluster if you ask me. So my three original choices from episode one were Kenny (The Gamer), Crystal (The Olympic Gold Medalist), and GC (The Token Brotha). Of my three choices, two of them made it to the final six, so not bad. Unforunately, neither of them would comprise the final three survivors.

The final four comprised of Sugar (The Pin-Up), Bob (The Physics Teacher), Susie (The Invalid), and Matty (The Workhorse). It was so clear that if Bob made it to the final three, that he would win the million dollars as the jury was made up of people from his old tribe, and clearly people who would not vote for Sugar and Susie. The last elimination vote basically came down to Matty or Bob leaving. Originally, they were unanimous on voting Bob out, but for whatever dumbfuck reason, Sugar, who I think is clinically retarded, decides maybe she can vote for Matty bringing the elimination to a tie. Wait a second. What the fuck!?!??! It made me angry to watch this. What the flying fuck was she thinking!?!?!??! Did she forget who the jury was? At least if she kept Matty on, she would have an even chance, I mean none of the jury really liked Sugar, Matty, or Susie. By keeping Bob in sealed her fate.

So the vote went to a tie, sending Matty and Bob to a fire making challenge to break it. Bob won. And yeah, in the end, Bob won the whole thing.

The final votes? 4 for Bob, and 3 for Susie. I have no doubt that those Susie votes are only because the jury members neither wanted to vote for Bob or Sugar, so it was the default choice. And, I bet that if Matty would have stayed, he would of won.

So Bob, the 57 year old physics teacher is a new millionaire. Well, if anything, I guess he deserves it, he played a good game. I was still rooting for Kenny though. Fuck that Sugar, screwed'em all!

Later geeks.

I didn't watch this show at all this year...I remember when the show first started and I thought, "what?! They can't do that. They can't drop people on an island and film them and see how they survive!" But then in came reality TV as we came to know it.

Oh. And I'm a dork. I thought Kevin was you. So read my last blog and read the comments, there's one for you there. You'll see what I mean. :P

I loved it the best when it first came out. It was the same summer that I worked at Wonderland, and I remember the day after every episode, we'd all talk about it while making cotton candy. Fond memories.

I stopped watching a few in the middle, but have picked it back up in the past 3 years. Sometimes I can get too into it, and it makes me angry (and "sweary"), but I love it all the same.

It was quite a week last week. It started off on a more heavy note last Sunday, but as the week wore on, things became better and more clear. So let's do a little recap. This is going to be kind of long, so if you find this kind of stuff boring I've inserted pictures of funny cats for your entertainment. So... 1.5 Weeks Ago About 1.5 weeks ago, my friend Jon from Living Room gave me the contact info for his uncle. His uncle is an engineer and apparently was looking for new grads and new hands to hire. That week, I gave him a few calls but he wasn't there when I called him and when he returned my calls, I wasn't here either. We were playing phone tag that week *insert schoolgirl giggle*. Sunday Morning So last Sunday morning, his uncle gave me a call at 9 am (The morning! My weakness! HISS!) and we talked about stuff. I was telling him a bit about school as well as elaborating my work/coop experience as he didn't have my resume yet. So he goes on to tell

George Clooney is UP IN THE AIR!!!

So this is the last in the three movies that I was looking forward to at the end of 2009 (the other two being Bad Lieutenant and Avatar). It's hard to say which movies I enjoyed more because they're all so different, but I can confidently say that I enjoyed all three. Also of the three, this movie is the most realistic when it's all said and done. Up In The Air tells a story about Ryan Bingham, who flies all over America firing people. Laying people off is such a tough thing to do that companies that need to do so hire people like Ryan. It becomes reflective as Ryan sees his own life of isolation at odds compared to the lives of those around him. It's apt that he has such a hollow and thankless job which parallels his own life. Because he's on the road for 250+ days of the year, his own life is quite hollow; with no stable relationships, weakened family ties and no friendships in sight. In fact the first time we see his apartment, I was kind of shocked. Up

Finally, the Xbox 360!!

So as I mentioned in a previous post, I received an Xbox 360 for Christmas from my dad. A great present it was! I've had 3 weeks to enjoy it so I guess I can give you my impressions of it now. First the controller. In truth, I haven't felt a controller this comfortable in my gaming life before. As a child who grew up on the 8-bit generation, with just a directional pad and 2 buttons, there was quite a learning curve getting used to using two analog sticks at the same time. You might say, "Hey Lam, how bout the PS2? You have that machine, and that has analog sticks". True, but of the twenty or so games I have for that, all of them used either only 1 analog stick, or allowed the option to switch on to the directional pad. Using 2 sticks at the same time was at first just uncomfortable. This made for all sorts of trouble as I was playing Gears of War . Luckily for me, I had computer controlled teammates that watched my back. I love the Media Center capabiliti
