Termehek-Mehek

Dari awal ditayangkannya acara ini, aku gak pernah sama sekali pengen nonton.
Dari awal ngerasa terhina aja kalau nonton acara ini. Dari judulnya aja udah "enggak level".
Awalnya, aku bener-bener cuma tau kalau acara ini tuh tentang orang yang nyari-nyariin orang hilang.
Isinya yang kayak gitu, bikin aku tambah gak tertarik sama acara ini.

Aku pertama kali nonton tuh gara-gara Kak Vivi, sepupuku yang tinggal di rumah papa-mama di Jakarta, nonton Termehek-Mehek ini.
Karena si Kak Vivi ini nontonnya di ruang nonton TV, jadi deh aku ikutan nonton.
Nonton pertama kali, aku ketawa terbahak-bahak.
Acaranya lucu banget.
Campuran antara sinetron kampungan dengan Lemon Tea.

Tadi nih, aku nonton Termehek-Mehek.
Awalnya jadi pengen nonton gara-gara adekku yang juga ikut-ikutan Kak Vivi, keracunan acara ini.
Lama-lama, pengen aja nonton acara yang bisa menghibur, ya seperti Termehek-Mehek ini.

Termehek-Mehek episode hari ini (Minggu, 15 Maret 2009) tanpa aku duga sangat kocak.
jadi ceritanya ada seorang cewek yang nyariin pacarnya yang udah hilang selama 5 bulan.

hal kocak pertama:
Pembawa acaranya (Panda) aja heran kenapa si cewek ini ribet banget nyariin si pacar. Padahal gak kena tipu dan bahkan mereka belum berencana nikah.
Kalau pacar menghilang selama 5 bulan, ya udah relain aja kali ya... Masih banyak ikan dilaut...

Si cewek ini cerita kalau pacarnya ini dulu bekerja sebagai ajudan ayahnya.
Pembawa acaranya juga memastikan bahwa si cewek mendapatkan restu ayahnya dalam melakukan pencarian si cowok ini.

hal kocak kedua:
udah tau ajudan ayah sendiri, ngapain dipacarin juga sih?

terus pencarian akan si cowok ini pun dilakukanlah.
semua orang yang ditanyain tentang si cowok ini bilang kalau si cowok ini adalah orang brengsek, playboy, suka main tangan sama cewek, dan berbagai kejelekan lainnya.
Intinya, setiap nanyain ke orang-orang tentang si cowok, tim Termehek-Mehek selalu kena damprat.
Ditengah-tengah pencarian, gak taunya si cewek ditelepon sama ayahnya dan dimarahin. Ternyata ketauan kalau si cewek ini melakukan pencarian tanpa restu orang tuanya.
Akhirnya pencarian dihentikan selama beberapa hari. Selain buat mendinginkan suasana antara si cewek dengan orang tuanya, mereka juga gak punya petunjuk apa-apa lagi.

Sampai akhirnya pencarian pun dilakukan.

hal kocak ketiga:
pas mobil tim Termehek-Mehek lagi jalan, tiba-tiba diberhentikan sama motor yang dinaiki dua orang preman kampung.
Para preman kampung itu maksa buat pencarian dihentikan, kalau enggak nyawa seluruh tim Termehek-Mehek bakalan terancam.
Aku ketawa terbahak-bahak. bener-bener sinetron kampungan campur Lemon Tea kan?

trus akhirnya si cowok ini pun dilacak dari seorang cewek lain yang menurut orang banyak adalah pacar si cowok yang sekarang.
Sampai akhirnya si cowok pun ditemukan lagi barengan sama cewek barunya.

hal kocak keempat:
si cewek yang nyariin cowok ini dan si cewek baru ini berantem sampe teriak-teriak-an memperebutkan cowok ini.
saking kocaknya, aku pas nonton gak sadar sampai melontarkan "catfight! catfight!" dengan semangat. HAHAHAHA!

Pas lagi berantem-berantem gitu, si cowok akhirnya menjelaskan duduk persoalannya.
si cowok bilang kalau dia gak cinta sama cewek yang nyariin dia itu.

hal kocak kelima:
Si cewek yang nyariin ini malah teriak-teriak gak jelas yang isinya kira-kira:
"Lo kok gitu banget sih ke gue? gue tuh susah-susah, jauh-jauh nyariin lo kesini, lo malah nolak gue gitu aja. Gue masih sayang banget sama lo!"
Aku beneran ketawa kenceng banget tuh, sampai mukul-mukul paha sendiri lagi!

Kedua pembawa acara ini udah diem aja, gak tau mo bilang apa.
sampai akhirnya si cowok membongkar bahwa si cewek adalah keponakan jauhnya.
si cewek yang nyariin ini emang udah suka ama si cowok dari dulu. Si cowok sendiri karena emang gak suka ama cewek ini plus gak mungkin seorang om pacaran sama ponakannya, jadi menjauh dari si cewek ini.

hal kocak keenam:
need I say more???
si cewek ini bener-bener phathetic!

Pembawa acara ini udah makin diam dan kaget.
mereka selama ini telah dibohongi oleh klien mereka sendiri.

Beneran deh.
kalau kamu lagi stres di hari Sabtu atau Minggu, dan nyari hiburan yang bisa bikin kamu tertawa terbahak-bahak,
Termehek-Mehek adalah tontonan yang paling tepat!

TOP 11!!!

I didn't get a chance to write about the incredible Top 13.
Now, I have to write about Top 11!

First of all, I want to thank you all the Americans that have voted for Danny Gokey and Anoop Desai.
They are staying in the Top 11 for another week.
I am now hoping that they are gonna choose the perfect songs for themselves to hold them up a little longer.

Meanwhile, here are 3 people whom I think gonna last for a pretty long time.

1. Allison Iraheta
She has a great rocker voice. But on the show, one of the judges (I can't remember which one) said that he/she thought Allison could sing any kind of songs and everyone is waiting for her to sing with some other style than rock.
and it's true. Remember Chris Daughtry? He was a rocker more than halfway in the competition. But when he finally sang "What A Wonderful World" everyone just fell deeper in love with him.
So I can't wait to see this Allison girl jazzing, or r&b-ing, or singing other songs and not turning it into a rock song.
Oh, and a big plus for her is that everyone seems to fall in love to the fact that she's only 16 but already very talented.

2. Lil' Rounds

I have to tell you that I think she's not better than Melinda Doolittle or Lakisha Jones.
But she's good. Very typical black woman with black music in her soul. very nice.
Her plus is that she has this story about her house being shattered by a hurricane and she has 3 children at home.
I hope America won't do the same mistake as what they did to both Melinda and Lakisha.

3. Adam Lambert

Adam Lambert is not my personal favorite.
I think they way he dressed was too much. I think his hair is annoying. I think he is the 'pretty' type of guy.
I know that he has a wide range of vocal. But I just don't like his type of voice.
There's a difference between his talking and singing voice. and I think that is weird.
But that was just my personal opinion.
The four judges LOVE him. Americans admire him.
plus he sang "Black or White" by Michael Jackson REALLY well and I was really shocked by his performance.
Another plus is that he's never been into a real stage before. So what he did was simply unbelievably amazing.

Argh...
I can't wait to watch more of the American Idol!!!!

Password Jutawan

Ada yang belum pernah liat kuis Pasword Jutawan ini di TV?
kalau belum, cobain deh.

sebenarnya, menurut aku pribadi, kuis ini adalah salah satu kuis yang sedikit membantu kita buat memutar otak.
cara bermainnya ada disini.

saking serunya permainan ini, ada beberapa temenku di kelas yang suka memainkan permainan Pasword Jutawan ini di kelas, kalau dosennya lagi membosankan atau bahkan menyebalkan.
Aku biasanya turut berkontribusi dalam permainan ini sebagai pembuat soal.
Jadi aku memilihkan kata-kata yang akan ditebak dalam permainan ini.

Awalnya, aku gak kepikiran ngasi kata-kata yang bisa bikin mereka memutar otak. Apapun benda yang ada dihadapanku, aku jadiin kata yang harus mereka tebak.
Terlalu gampang deh pokoknya. Aku milih kata-kata kayak kerudung dan botol.
Temen-temenku protes. Aku diminta untuk membuat satu set kata yang lebih susah.
Sesuai dengan permintaan, aku pilihin deh kata-kata yang susah buat mereka, contohnya konspirasi, sinergis, dan integrasi.
mereka protes terlalu susah.
dasar temen-temen banyak mau-nya!

Sore ini aku nonton kuis itu di TV.
kebetulan banget ada satu kata yang sama di kuis ini seperti kata yang pernah aku kasih ke temenku buat mereka mainkan.
kata itu adalah termos.

waktu itu, dosen yang lagi ngajar bener-bener membosankan dan menyebalkan.
Aku jadi nguping mereka main-main.

Kata: TERMOS
temen 1: tempat
temen 2: apa
temen 1: air
temen 2: apa
temen 1: panas
temen 2: Ciater

Ada juga yang lucu satu lagi.

Kata: Spageti
temen 1: makanan
temen 2: nasi
temen 1: pasta
temen 2: apa
temen 1: pizza
temen 2: hut

LOL

A Song That He Missed

My favorite song in We Sing, We Dance, We Steal Things that Jason Mraz didn't sing in JJF 2009.
I was particularly disappointed.
But oh well, what can I say?
I hope to travel the world and come to one of his concerts later in my life and see him sings this song live.

If It Kills Me - Jason Mraz
Hello, tell me you know
Yeah, you figured me out
Something gave it away
It would be such a beautiful moment
To see the look on your face
To know that I know that you know now

And baby that’s a case of my wishful thinking
You know nothing
Cause you and I
Why, we go carrying on for hours, on and
We get along much better
Than you and your boyfriend

Well all I really wanna do is a love you
A kind much closer than friends use
But I still can’t say it after all we’ve been through
And all I really want from you is to feel me
As the feeling inside keeps building
And I will find a way to you if it kills me
If it kills me

Well how long can I go on like this,
Wishing to kiss you,
Before I rightly explode?
This double life I lead isn’t healthy for me
In fact it makes me nervous
If I get caught I could be risking it all

Baby there’s a lot that I miss
In case I’m wrong

Well all I really wanna do is love you
A kind much closer than friends use
But I still can’t say it after all we’ve been through
And all I really want from you is to feel me
As the feeling inside keeps building
And I will find a way to you if it kills me
If it kills me

If I should be so bold
I’d ask you to hold my heart in your hand
Tell you from the start how I’ve longed to be your man
But I never said I would
I guess I’m gonna miss my chance again

All I really wanna do is love you
A kind much closer than friends use
But I still can’t say it after all we’ve been through
And all I really want from you is to feel me
As the feeling inside keeps building
And I will find a way to you if it kills me
If it kills me
If it kills me
I think it might kill me

Top Performance in JJF 2009

1. Tompi

What more can I say about this one guy?
When he has the stage, he has it.
His performance blew everyone in the room. His range of vocal was unbelievable.
The flood director even had to remind him couple of times before he got off the stage.
He's a great vocalist!

2. Maliq & d'essentials

When Maliq has the stage, they never think about sharing it twice with other artists.
first of all, they rock (read: jazz) everyone with their own performance.
then, they asked all the other artist that becomes 'big' with their help to come up to the stage and rock (read: jazz) with them.
and I'm telling you, it's really a crime not to watch their performance in JJF 2009.

Plus all the other artist that I admire:

1. Soil & PIMP

Their music is great for dancing and I'm telling you, they're one of the craziest Japanese band I've ever watched.
They seem to have soooooo much fun when they were up in the stage.
plus, they all really know what they were playing. Except that one guy whose name I forgot, who acted (ONLY) as an agitator. LOL

2. Matt Bianco

Gosh! he was so great!!!
Plenary Hall was full of people who were dying to see this guy. Him and his band could really play some jazz.
People who were dancing with his music looked like they were dancing in their own little world.
It was a really great view.

3. Elfas Secoria feat. Elfa's Singers

They are one heck of vocal group.
They were so good that they blew me away.
I remember what Ravina said about them: "they sounded like a vocal group that fills in for Disney's soundtracks or something"
and it was more than true. Their vocals are wicked great!!!

4. Drew

This newly-known band was more amazing than what I expected them to be.
Gosh!
none of the band members looked handsome or pretty, but they really could play the instruments and sing.
That is a true original artist.
I can't wait to see more of their performance!

And you might wonder why I didn't put Jason Mraz's name in here.
I don't know.
But I think that his performance wasn't very spectacular.
I LOVE his songs and his voice is REALLY great (what you hear on his cd, it's his actual voice, without editing. unlike many other singers taht we know).
But then I hate the concert.
It was TOO FULL. I could barely move my hands to wave at him.
Plus he was just standing there with his mic and guitar. nothing really special.
Well, except when he did some stuff with his polaroid camera. that was VERY COOL.
but I guess what disappoint me the most was the concert was too crowded. It wasn't very comfortable for me.
I would like to see him again with LESS number of crowd. Then probably I would fall in love with his performance.

All in all,
I REALLY can't wait for JJF 2010.
and as you can see on the right side of my blog, I'm joining the campaign to bring John Mayer to the festival.
Anyone with me?
*wink wink*
