So despite the fact that I don't like (read HATE) reality shows, I have to admit that I've started watching a few lately. Now, I know.... I know.... they are most likely scripted but wow.... they are addictive. Here's my take on a few.
- First is The Voice. I started watching it because a friend from High School was a contestant. (He was amazing by the way). Originally, I was very much against it because I couldn't believe Shakira would have anything of importance to say. However, she surprised me. Not only is she sweet, doesn't dress like a ho, she is a great coach. She actually gives useful and good advice. Also, Usher surprised me in that way as well. I think he may be the best coach. Plus let's face it.... Adam is HHHOOOTTT!!!! The show actually seems to want the contestants to succeed. Not like American Idol, where that is just one big circus train wreck.
- Second, I'm very much into Duck Dynasty. While I resisted its redneck lure for the first two seasons, I find that I very much enjoy it. I like that the teens show respect, that they pray before meals, there isn't constant beeping out of language, and I do love watching their antics. Jace is my favorite bearded duck hunter.... I love that he manipulates the group so much.. Ok... ok, I really just admire that he does it so well.
Which brings me to another topic. I have a new hobby. Flea Marketing. I know! I don't want to love it... but I'm super addicted! I am into re-purposing items. In the last six months, I've repainted five rooms, re-upholstered my couch, re-purposed eight chairs, three tables, and several other small projects. Yea..... I've been busy. And I've started a very small side business and website. Please go here and take a look. Like my Facebook page and visit often.
This has also peaked my interest in shows like Storage Wars and Haunted Collector. I don't want to accidentally pick up a ghost at the flea market. Unless it was a cool ghost that told me the future... .like a genie.... that would be cool.
Here's a look at the new graphics.
