The Dark Forest / College Major
« on: July 08, 2009, 08:25:03 PM »
Well, it's likely that I'll go undecided, but I am thinking of taking a major in engineering, but there's something that's been making me anxious for a while. I just have this feeling that if they won't do it, then I just have to give it a shot. If someone does it before I do, then I'll do something else. I don't wanna tell anyone what I'm talking about because it may sound crazy to all of you.

I felt that my last post was "too risky", so here's one for you Simpson fans out there.

The Dark Forest / Your experience on a T.V. show
« on: July 07, 2009, 08:12:23 PM »
So I have created this topic to share anyone's experiences or someone else you know that has been on a T.V. show, sitcom, game show, etc. I can say that this would be similar for interviewing a past contestant on 'Legends', but in a subjective point of matter.

UPDATE:If you wanna post your experiences here, only do one post to share it for everyone, but don't worry, it's okay to make a quick reply or you can link a video of you appearing on a game show, whether you were in the audience or as a contestant.

So I'll share my experience when I was part of the studio audience in a taping of 'The Price is Right'.

So my mom and my relatives were planning to go see my other relatives in Southern California, down from Lake Elsinore, San Diego, about an hour drive to where CBS Studios is. I have told my mom that we could go see The Price is Right while we were at San Diego. So I got the tickets for all of my relatives, including me to go.
The next day, we got in the car and drove to CBS Studios. Unfortunately, the LA traffic was the most unbearable thing you could ever experience. We were stuck in traffic for so long, that I was worried that we couldn't get to our taping for the time we had to get there. As we got there, we couldn't find a parking spot and we couldn't find the place as we couldn't park in the studio lot and parked in some luxurious parking garage. We got lost to where we were suppose to be.
We got to the studio and there were people sitting at a huge bench area where people were waiting for the show. We were late for the morning taping, because we had to be there by 10:00 a.m., instead we got to the second show. I remember it was such a hot day in mid-November and had to wait for a really long time. Many people gathered for the second show and then we all got to sit at the waiting area where we were told the rules and regulations of the show. This is where we had to sign a little form for personal information. We then got numbers so the crew could see which contestants should be picked to be on contestant's row, as well for the pages to take our pictures.
As we were sitting in the waiting area, a very loud guy started to talk to us and some people were annoyed by him. I think he was talking to us because he assumed my family was Filipino, which led to some inside Filipino jokes, like if we came here by Jeepney or something. So eventually, everyone in groups went up to one of the producers and were given an interview for about 15 seconds about themselves. After everyone was interviewed, we went in line for a security check as security checked purses or pockets. It was about 3 o'clock and we all then sat at another huge bench area for the doors to open. As the doors opened, everyone's excitement made me nervous for me, as it was the first time I would see the set up close.
We had to up the stairs, where the classic logo of the Price is Right was painted on the wall. I saw the old CBS curtains and gave them a quick feel of nostalgia. The doors opened and it was dark inside and cold. I was shocked that the place was very small. The stage looked huge on T.V., but again, it was tiny. We were all seated by our numbers and then, a dance version of the theme song came on.
People started dancing in the rows. Then another song came and it was the Village People's 'YMCA'. My grandma started to dance and then everyone in my family danced as well. After a few seconds, my grandma stopped and laughed it out. At the same time, there was this nerdy guy with a clipboard, writing down numbers below our tags so that they can choose the contestants before the show.

Next part-
The next thing, there were four people in contestant's row acting as the cheerleaders. I guessed that they wanted to be on the show. Eventually, the music died and we were all in our seats. As it got quiet, the video monitors from the sealing popped a video and everyone thought they were on camera and got excited for the cameras. Instead, it was a compilation of clips from previous shows of people who have gone mental on stage and in contestants row. After the video, the room got dark and the party theme of TPIR, with strobe lights flashing, as it were a rave, Rich Fields came on stage. He

^ Off topic dude. But I believe it should be September. I'm not sure, though.

I should have added with Brain Surge, I hope there will be a possibility for a revival of Legends, maybe Kirk Fogg could host again, if he's not busy writing/directing another movie.

That's so awesome!! How was it with the green screens used as trip screens though? I would think it would be weird just seeing a giant blank green screen.

EDIT: I guess I should mention, TPIR is my new obsession. :P

I'm just gonna make a new thread so I could share my experience and maybe the other members can as well.

Just find it at The Dark Forest.

The Jesters' Court / What kind of iPod do you have?

I'm one of eight people under the age of 20 who doesn't have an I-pod. I'm proud to carry my CDRs around in my jacket.

Hey, I don't have an iPod or any kind of mp3 player. I still love having CDs, although it does get hot when I play them in the car, although it applies to an iPod as well. So I guess I'm in the 12.5% percentile.

For game show, I still like The Price is Right. Drew Carey is very funny and I got a chance to be in one of the tapings, although none of my family and relatives who came didn't get anything.

Oh my gosh, I love that show! When did you get to attend a taping?

I was at a taping last year around mid-November and the show aired on 1-30-09. I exactly remembered it because there are a few videos on youtube where I was on camera in the audience. There was this group of sorority girls wearing pink. One of the people in the group got up on stage and won. I'll give the link if you wanna see it. I'm the one wearing the sky blue shirt with glasses. You know, I might open up a new topic for members that can share their experience with themselves being an audience member for a game show, sitcom, talk show, misc. Maybe bring up what seemed unique or generic in the running of the show.

The Jesters' Court / What Internet Browser Do You Use?

Umm...dude....Mozilla is Firefox. :D

Firefox all the way!

I was referencing the old browser called 'Mozilla' before they kept Firefox. Although SeaMonkey is somewhat similar, but again, Flock is more for the social net worker.

Last night i had a NIGHTMARE it was Jan 1st, and nick GaS was gone O_O. I woke up and then went back to sleep and had the same dream O_O then again O_O.

Well you must be in total shock, in medical terms, that Nick Gas is gone. As for me at the time it was gonna cancel, I felt like I didn't wanna do anything because I felt that I had enough of it, but years later, the Nick game show syndrome has come back to haunt me, especially for Legends.

Some day, I'm hoping a revival of Legends will come. But when's Brain Surge gonna air?

Just curious since this forum has started about three or four years ago with many of you in high school I guess.

As of now, there is a possibility I might be going to San Francisco State, if not, then it's off to DVC for me.

I would have to say Sesame Street, even though I rarely catch the show on T.V.. There are other shows like The Daily Show and The Colbert Report, both show how "great" media is. For game show, I still like The Price is Right. Drew Carey is very funny and I got a chance to be in one of the tapings, although none of my family and relatives who came didn't get anything. I still dream of seeing the set for Legends.

So far, I am the only one who has voted for 'other'. I like to use 'Flock'. The format is just like Firefox and Mozilla combined, but the browser is a specialty for a social networking browser.
