The Dark Forest / High School Discussions
« on: July 14, 2009, 10:14:26 PM »
So if anyone has any fond memories about high school, opinions about it, etc. I will be opening new topics that will be about elementary, middle, and college. I'm just really interested in people's experiences about school.

I have to say that my experience with high school really gave me a perspective on almost everything. Most of that came from Senior year. I had so much aspirations then now. I felt like I was on the clouds, where I could do anything when I grew up. It was almost if I was in the movie 'Only Yesterday', except that I would visit the school once a week.

The Jesters' Court / Kirk Fogg
« on: July 09, 2009, 06:59:47 PM »
So if anyone has anything they want to say about Kirk Fogg; anything you like about him, his movies, commercials, Legends, any dirt   :wink:, go ahead.

I'll go first and say that one day, I would love to meet him one day. I don't live in Southern California, but maybe if there were to be a special gathering for an occasion, e.g. movie premiere, I can die, before they revive Legends.

The Heart Room / Where were the half pendants?
« on: July 08, 2009, 08:50:10 PM »
I think I can help more if anyone has any information for the locations of the other half of the pendant around the table whenever a team would receive a pendant-and-a-half.

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

The Dark Forest / Are you in high school, college, or working?
« on: July 07, 2009, 02:14:14 PM »
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.

The Dark Forest / Hello everyone
« on: July 07, 2009, 11:38:39 AM »
I want to introduce myself into this forum. At first, I had trouble getting my account activated, but after some patience, I have finally become a member. I only discovered this site when I found the website

I've should have mentioned this, but I am a big fan of the Purple Parrots, mostly because it's my high school color and the team seems to be underrated, although I do like all of the teams, it's just that I have a liking for them.

The Dark Forest / Distortion: The Movie
« on: July 07, 2009, 10:58:35 AM »
So, any thoughts about the movie? I watched the whole movie yesterday, but with the commentary on because I rented the movie on Netflix and needed to mail it in as soon as I could.
I have to say that Kirk Fogg did a good job with direction and some of the writing, although some of the dialogue, interior, and acting felt cheesy. The music seemed too loud and unneeded, I would have suggested for a more mysterious-esque soundtrack. I thought Jack Rubio sort of stole the movie. I just couldn't believe Kirk said the 'F' word many times. The movie was okay, but I think Kirk can do better if he made another movie. I would love to see him in a satire comedy. Maybe make fun of himself and the fans who still love the show.
