The colors of Flower Boy Next Door

I was originally writing this on my phone. After I posted it to tumblr, I realized, “Ah, I have a blog to post these kind of things!” So here it goes, replete with picture proofs.

I was watching the finale of Flower Boy Next Door last night and it kept jumping out at me how perfect this orange-blue color platelet looked. It’s no secret this particular combination has been the prevailing color scheme for the show. From being complementary accent colors to background decor, they blend in with the soft yellow glow of the lenses to provide a rich yet low key tone that I immediately fell in love with.

My Two Cents on Hunan TV’s New Year Couple Duets

Whenever I think of eeMedia, the image of a fat, Goldman Sachs investment banker walking out of wall street danging a cigar comes to mind. Now, that’s not necessarily a bad thing per se but it’s not a compliment either. I think eeMedia really knows how to create the buzz — best of all, take advantage of existing media hype — even if some of their artists don’t quite hold up on the talent end of the deal. But sometimes, eeMedia over does it.

Like the “couple theme” this year (click image to enlarge):

E-News Round Up, 8/20 – 8/30

Originally I planned to fill the “What’s New” section (refer to panel on right) with Chinese Paladin 3 recaps, but the writing is getting monotonous and unrewarding. It’s time for a switch, say a rough entertainment news round up?

Marriage & Relationship

The hottest one right now is the news coverage on Andy Lau‘s marriage and children (impending and existing,) the fertility tests for a child, daily, sometimes multiple times per day. (Yes ladies, he’s happily married. Last June in Las Vegas.) Following the discovery of Andy Lau’s sneaky marriage, it’s now confirmed that Miriam Yeung (on Aug 11, 2008) and Leon Lai (on March 9, 2008) have also secretly married their respective partner in Vegas. Vegas seems to be the all time favorite wedding spot for the rich and famous!

Then, there was the serial report on Joe Chen/Chen Qiao En (Fated to Love You, Prince Turns into Frog)‘s split with her Australian boyfriend of four years proceeding her newly discovered, alleged “romantic” involvement with Easy Fortune Happy Life costar Roy Qiu (Invincible Shan Bao Mei) — which I planned to write about but eventually gave up on account of extreme heat. I know that’s a pathetic excuse, but let’s face it, this weather really is too hot for writing. I’d rather be spitting out watermelon seeds under a fan than staring into a computer screen.

Anyway, they seem to spark great chemistry on and off screen. Whether this hook-up is true or not, I hope paparazzi’s attention doesn’t or didn’t smother any possibility for happiness.

Tom & Joe: in her shoes

I’m trying to take a quick nap before a long night of grappling with words, ideas, and concepts; but my overactive/ overstressed/ overused brain won’t stop going on wild tangents. So I go, “Screw the nap, I might as well be procrastinating.” Yeah, not a very smart idea. I know.

Toni Braxton – Unbreak My Heart Heard this song on the bus to school this morning, can’t get it out of my mind.

Anyhooo I present to you, Tom & Joe, a random little skit that popped into my head while I was trying not to think:
