I missed the Grammys last Sunday. It was a decision between Walking Dead and the Grammys, and I chose Walking Dead.
I’m wondering if there are others like me who find themselves in a dilemma when it comes to deciding what show to watch. It is a dilemma which, I have faced many times before: Do I watch Monday night football or… the presidential debate? Game of Thrones or …CNN covering a President’s speech?
Lately, my show of choice (when asked what I want to watch) has been anything UFC. It’s a thing that has just recently perked my interest. I think what fascinates me about it is the fact that two people in a fenced octagon arena made the conscious decision to get their asses whooped.
Granted, they do get paid, but it’s definitely something I wouldn’t be able to do, unless it was to save the world from an alien invasion. Then it becomes the right thing to do and I’m all about doing the right thing.
To start with, where does all that anger come from? A past girlfriend who cheated ? Daddy abandonment issues? And how do you get punched in the face so many times without not wanting to just crawl in fetal position and think of happy thoughts like ice cream and sunshine to make pain will go away? Because that’s what I would do.
Besides that, I do not tolerate pain well. One time, I cut myself accidentally with a knife and was yelling bloody murder when my husband tried to wash the wound with water from the sink. So if I was put in the situation where I had to fight someone, I would tap out even before the fight began, or with one hit – I would purposely fall to the ground if the hit already didn’t put me there, and then tell myself to stay the fuck down. It’ll be over soon… I think.
This brings up the issue of me not being able to defend myself. Thank goodness I’ve never been put in the situation where I’ve had to, but if someone were to start a physical fight with me, I don’t know how I’d be able to defend myself, if we were just relying on my non-existent combat skills.
What I need to learn are those pressure points that (when poked) completely render the opponent helpless. Haven’t you seen those movies where one person is getting beat up and all seems lost, until they touch their clavicle and then the enemy goes to sleep? Yea, that’s what I need to learn and then I’ll be all good.
Anyways, some television shows I’m digging now:
The Magicians on Netflix/Sci-FI – It’s like Harry Potter goes to college
Taboo – Half the time I don’t know what’s going on and when Tom Hardy speaks, its mostly of him grunting, but Tom Hardy is fine as shit and walks around with no pants or no shirt (not both), so you know.
Walking Dead – Part II of the season premiered last week. It was kind of slow, but I’m interested in seeing what happens.
Legion – This is supposed to be Xmen related. The first episode grabbed me, but I have to keep watching to formulate a good opinion
Humans – Are they human, or are they not? I don’t get why it’s not obvious to the humans in the show that the ones who have overly green animated eyes are not human.
Anyways, that’s it for now. I know, it’s a lot of tv. Maybe it’s indicative that I need a life? I don’t know
Until next time…
