Brief update

I think I need to ban myself from the intarweb for a while. I bombed my Business Law quiz tonight. This class is going to kick my ass. Last week, I took the practice quiz and missed 3 out of 20, basically a B. But it didn’t count. And I hadn’t even read the chapters we were quizzed on last week.

It pains me to say that not only did I read the chapters we were quizzed on tonight, but I thought I knew what I was doing. Until I got my score back… 13 out of 20. I MISSED 7! That’s a D/F! Holy crapola! Good thing we are allowed to drop our two lowest scores from our final grade. But that means I have to ace the quizzes from here on out. If I believed the secret of getting a good grade was not reading like I did last week, then I would be blogging a lot more.

But right now I have a nerdly 3.95 overall GPA (I would have a 4.0 if I hadn’t received an A- the semester my Dad passed away because I bombed a final), and I would like to maintain it. So now that I finally have a book to read, I’m going to put more effort into reading and understanding the book so I do better in the future.

However, I still allowed myself to watch tonight’s HEROES. OMG! zOMG! Eeeeeeeeee!

In related news, VARIETY reports the following:

“Heroes: Origins” will air in “Heroes'” Monday night timeslot, most likely after the original completes its season run (but possibly when it takes a hiatus). The net has ordered six segs of “Origins,” which combined with “Heroes” makes for 30 hours.

NBC Entertainment prexy Kevin Reilly said “Heroes: Origins” will allow the regular show to air virtually uninterrupted through the season.

“I’m calling it the ‘Bulk-Up Challenge,’ ” Reilly said. “We’re trying to stay more consistent in the scheduling for our audience … so we’ll fill out the year, with not a lot of repeats or a long hiatus. We’ll keep the pedal to the metal next year on ‘Heroes.'”

Reilly credited “Heroes” creator-exec producer Tim Kring with pitching the spinoff. Kring will oversee a second crew that will write and produce the episodes simultaneously with the original skein.

“Heroes: Origins” will air as stand-alone episodes that center each week on a different character not yet seen on the original show. Peacock has also added an interactive element to the show: Viewers will be asked to pick their favorite character from “Origins,” who will then join the cast of the full-blown “Heroes” skein the following year.

The Asian/Asian-American Hollywood (AAAH) Report: Variety “Players” this week

manns_chinese_theatre.jpgWelcome to the first The Asian/Asian-American Hollywood (AAAH) Report!

I’m not sure if this will be a recurring report, but I think I’ll try it out. I’m always reading the trades and taking note of the up & coming Asian/Asian American actors/actresses making it in mainstream Hollywood productions, so maybe I’ll try to keep up a little better and make this a regular thing. And I’ll try to pay attention to things that don’t aren’t just about actors and actresses, but various things that are related, too. But if people hate this report, I won’t bother.
