Glee comes back and how!

Ok I take my words back.. In fact am very busy eating them now! I am back to being a “Supergleek”. Glee’s “Girls (and Boys) on Film” was an interesting and entertaining episode. William Shuester finally came up with an idea to put Gleeks back on top.
First things first – Good points: Blaine and Kurt’s rendition of Moulin Rouge’s “Come what may” is by far the best on the show. I could feel the hurt Blaine felt with the song. Darren Criss is growing stronger and stronger with each passing day and it is no wonder that he has become one of the most popular actors on Glee today.

And Wow! Shuester hunting Emma to win her love back was just so creatively put together. When I watched John Cusack (the cutest man alive, according to Susie) in thatboombox scene from “Say Antyhing”, I thought so here’s a scene that no man can do as good as this guy. But boy was I wrong! Will was so charming Emma had to surrender to his manly charms.

I think only Glee creators know how to mix two songs and deliver a great mash-up. "Old Time Rock and Roll" and "Danger Zone" mash-up from the boys was quite an idea. I thoroughly enjoyed the episode because of these great, off-the-hook mash-ups. And also who can forget Finn coming back to New York City on Santana’s insistence to win his love back by beating up the new bad guy, Broody (He’s infact “plastic” as Santana bluntly and oh-so-honestly puts it ;)). Finn kissing Emma in the 13th episode, this season, only made viewers cringe with disgust. But thank god! They didn’t drag it. It would have been such a ridiculous and a very lousy love triangle. I am so grateful to Glee creators that they are getting Finchel back together! 
It was heat-warming to see, Ryder finally accepting Unique Wade for what she is (Yes, I am gonna respect Wade by calling him a “she” – did you see the “Diva” episode, Man is she the greatest diva). Glee is so good at this – teaching how to be comfortable in your own skin. From Kurt to Wade, they have made what were deemed to be “socially awkward issues” seem so normal. I mean they don’t even seem like issues any more. The word is “acceptance”. Glee has all kinds of people – Heterosexuals, Homosexuals, Bi-sexuals, “Uniques”, student with Down’s syndrome, Bullies, Sissies everybody, which makes me think that the theme of Glee apart from music is acceptance, which has made the show a “morally upgraded” one.
So to sum up, Glee is back! (In my face, yes, In my face)!!

Steven Eckholdt – The most Hate-able Person on TV

Ok so it’s not about his personality to start with, but the characters he has played over the years, that have made him the most hateable TV person on my list. I know he is handsome and totally metrosexual – looking, but hey, nobody coerced him into playing the two worst characters on Television. So here goes, the “ that third guy who broke the cute couple up” roles he played:
Mark Robinson – FRIENDS:

Who doesn’t remember his character Mark Robinson from FRIENDS? We all hated him, when he got Rachel an interview at Bloomingdale’s, we hated him when Rachel hugged him leaving Ross cold after her interview, we hated him when he got her Chinese food right after Ross & Rachel’s situation which later got very famous as the “we were on a break” scene, we hated him when he told Rachel he had a huge crush on her but didn’t act upon it because she was with Ross then, we hated him and this was the last nail in the coffin– when he took Rachel out and hurt Ross (Unintentional? I don’t think so!)…

Badassery, thy name is Ma Anand Sheela! (A No spoilers post)

When Netflix’s recommendation displayed the docu-series “Wild,Wild Country”, I was uninterested. One of my friends had enlightened me about Osho Rajneesh’s teachings when we were still teenagers. The bits and pieces of the cult, she had gathered from one of the neighbour uncles, who at the time I think had no filter as to what to be shared with teenagers and what not, didn’t sound sound to me. According to her information, Osho was a spiritual guru who encouraged people to find happiness via physical means! At the time, I wasn’t sure she even knew what she was talking about! But anyways, that was the picture I had in mind of Osho. As a grown up, I am no longer a prude but the image of Osho hadn’t changed until recently.

I started watching the series because it had tons of hippie culture shades. I have been fascinated with hippies and their liberated way of living ever since I watched Woodstock documentary. So, the summary as was on Netflix, got me a bit curious and so I started. And …

The Most Important Groupies of All Times

The Rock n Roll storm of the 60s was a much needed revolution in the music history which gave us many great bands and musicians the world segments as “legends” today. While we are all well aware of how much this time period was unequivocally the best time to “be discovered” in the music industry, I wonder how many of us truly notice what kind of opulence being discovered led to.Money – check, villa – check, vanity, private jets – check, fame – check, women – check oh check!

Women – as musicians were a small group compared to the behemoth group of male musicians in the 60s and the 70s. Pattie Smith, Stevie Nicks and a handful more made their mark in the male dominated music industry. Also behind the veil were the groupie clan that slowly and steadily made their ways into the rainbow lives of artists – satisfying the egos and “other things” these men were “in need” of. Being a groupie was more than legitimate if these girls (also men, yes there were male groupies also ) were of the right…
