Savior of Reality TV Might be on MTV…

I don’t know what’s happening to me, but I’ve turned into a leaking, whimpering mess these days.  What’s done it this time?  MTV.

I know, I know, but hold up and let me explain.  MTV has somehow managed to air a show that has made it to the second season that is actually worth something.  No sleazy, no partying, no gmy/tan/laundry or whatever the hell that whole thing was.  No, this show focuses on positive things.  That almost sounds like a foreign phrase anymore.  Granted, this show is not at all about music, but it is one of the few shows on television that is real.  It is called World of Jenks.  If you haven’t heard of it, check it out.  It’s worth it.  First of all, Jenks is a young guy that actual has plans and interests.  He looks for outstanding people to showcase using his abilities and knowledge of film.  And outstanding people does he ever find…

Ok, as promised, here we go!  I have waded through the plethora of comments and likes and shares and reblogs and follows and amazing, amazing feedback from my Freshly Pressed post.  I have finally found a way to rig my laptop so that it functions enough to not just crash every time I try to use it.  I am was caught up on my daily post challenge….oh well.  Down to business:

I was nominated for the Sunshine Blog Award by Tech Tard.  The original post is *here*.

Thank you so very much for nominating me for this award!  I have no idea what I’m doing, but whatever.  Picture, nominations, and answers to questions….I’m just jumping in head first 🙂

These Are My Confessions, Part 2

English: Gossip Girl TV series logo.I’m just going to blurt it out.  Here it goes… Gossip Girl.  Oh yes, it’s true.  I’m hiding my face even as I type this.  Gossip Girl, the unbelievable teen/young adult drama on the CW channel.  The really bad part is that I didn’t get into this show when I was younger.  No, I started watching it on Netflix this year.  I don’t know what possessed me to start it, and I swear I went in very skeptical and judgy.  But something happened about halfway through the first episode.  I had already fallen in love with the characters, and the drama and twists and surprises are like a drug.

Serena, with her sketchy past and steadfast belief that she’s a different person all while making the same mistakes over and over again.  Blair‘s narcissism and constant sabotage.  Chuck just…being Chuck BassNate and his constant unrequited loves.  Dan, oh Dan, and his constant judgements of the Upper East Side while acting just like them every chance he gets.  The transformation from Little J to wafer goth.  And good God don’t forget about Georgina.  They love each other, they hate each other, they slept with someone else.  Even the parents on this show are in and out of triangles and schemes and other shenanigans and I absolutely love it.  I hated these types of people when I was in high school.  I avoided it at all costs, and now I can’t get enough.  So much so that I successfully completed all 5 seasons on Netflix, the last season within a span of around 3 days, then watched the first 3 episodes of season 6 in time to be fully caught up when the new episodes began airing this week.
