Commercial Break #34

It’s officially fall and I feel like I’m going forward in slow motion because nothing is happening. Everything I want to watch, is weeks away, or even worse, so far in the future that it sadness me to think about it. I’m not even in a mood to read which is frustrating because I’m in the middle of the Throne of Glass series and I know it’s going to be good once I get into it. The one thing I’m lucky enough to be into without hesitation is Modern Family which is back ! and well, I still love it even though they are dragging my ship way too long towards their happy ending.

fsociety for President

fsociety for president gamesThough mentioned in passing, the spoilers are present.

Since the very beginning, we as people, start playing games. First because of our parents, who guide us to learn through games, like books that make animal noises and organized play dates with other kids so we would learn to play with each other. As we grow up, we discover new games, more ways to expand our minds, to develop our brains through the fun of playing and the games never stop. When our mind has understood which shape goes with which hole, or when we are too aware that a stick is no longer a sword, we turn to bigger games, to more advanced ways to play. Then we are encouraged by others, to play a game of sports or to act on a stage. At some point we will also be manipulated to play by corporations, who force us towards video games and slot machines, and by peer pressure, which pushes us to play dangerously with our lives, or makes us play the game of pretending instead of being who we really are. But what if the games we play finally catch up with us? What if the games turn into reality? And what if, at some point, when we don’t even realize it, we stop playing the game, and the game starts playing with us?

Top 4 Summer TV Newcomers

When I knew my brain wasn’t going to be able to construct a proper review, I knew it was time to share my Top 4 Summer TV newcomers from this year. As you can see, it’s not a typical post since, for the life of me, I couldn’t make it into a Top 5. But the shows that did make the cut, well, they are special and different and two of them just represent the kind of entertainment one wants during a summer – something light and easy.

fsociety is Taking Over

mr robot rami malik 2mr robot rami malikThere is an itsy-bitsy-spoiler, dear readers!

Delusional sophistication that is making fun of hashtags, the need to be constantly online and connected, not to mention drinking Starbucks’ vanilla lattes for their logo not its contents. Hyper-addictive, mind altering and simply fantastic visually, verbally and more importantly, ideally, Mr. Robot is pushing us to think past what we’re used to and forcing us to think twice about society itself. Whether the view is a tad bit extreme, and whether the ideas are shown through drug use, insomnia, social isolation and with a hint schizophrenia, where the people Elliot Alderson talks to are the viewers themselves, doesn’t matter – the question is how far are we going to let society evolve into a mass production before we say fuck society!

TWO WEEK VACATION! And as it may show, I’m super excited about it. My original plan was to schedule everything for two weeks but since I left it to the last minute, I’m writing this already during my vacation. Though it’s still going to be scheduled, so if I don’t reply to comments, it may be because I’m literally not doing anything with my time and being NOT productive – just the kind of being I’m very good at. But here are some of my thoughts about the last couple of weeks and there might be some short reviews about my latest book reads.
