I am one of these people who don’t follow big trends when they’re new or very big. Lady Gaga is one, I heard a lot about her and there was a lot of people claiming they loved her etc, but I never felt compelled to find out who she is or what she does and one day I heard something interesting about her. In fact it was in 2012 when I decided, hey, I’ll actually look into her. My reason? I was in a spiritual website and there was a lot of Christians worrying over her lyrics in Judas, of which it turned out, they misheard; to be honest, so did I initially.
I thought I heard Lady Gaga sing “May the fury of Satan arise” so did all these Christians, but as any Lady Gaga fan would know she actually sang “With the fury of the saints in her eyes”. Easily misheard but also very subtle.
This clever use of words made me admire Gaga, I must admit. Very ballsy character I thought, but at the time I didn’t know her fashion sense, wow, she’s me in another life, I’m sure! Anyway, I decided to listen and watch a few of her youtube videos with amazement, I found out to my luck that a fortnight after discovering her she would be having an interview with Paul O’Grady about her latest video Hair. After that interview was aired I got hooked on her, big time and so did my little boy. I don’t normally follow trends, I’m usually seen as the trend setter, but I adore this woman, she’s great.
Also talking of trends I discovered “The Big Bang Theory” after season two and I stumbled upon it accidentally when channel flicking on one boring night and wow, that’s a great new comedy. I love it and own all the series now, I am very much like several of the characters there. I am the worlds biggest geek, as you’ll soon find out. I have to laugh because most of it is true, and I tend to deliberately go out with geek guys because they are the only ones who seem to semi-understand me, on the downside, some geek guys don’t get imagination and as you know, imagination is pretty big in my life.
I hadn’t paid much attention either to “The Game of Thrones” never seen one before, but I am taking the plunge and buying the box-set to see what it’s like, if I don’t like it I will just give it as a gift to someone who does. I have never seen Merlin the new BBC series either, though I say new it’s probably been around for five years now, but it’s new to me. For someone who loves the alternative and fantasy, I am not doing a very good job in keeping up with the latest around me, I don’t even know the top new fantasy books or new authors within the last five years either, so better get on top of that hadn’t I?
