Ernesto's Favorite Things (Right Now)

Instead of writing a long story of what I've been up to these past few weeks I've decided to compile a list of my favorite things (just like Oprah). I do want to clarify that this list only represents what I currently like right now (meaning the past few weeks) and not necessarily my ultimate favorites for each category. If I fail my exam, then I blame all of these distractions (I know lame excuse haha).

---Favorite Books/Authors---
These two prolific and excellent authors have inspired me to consider writing my own memoir...well at least part of it. I guess I need to get some more "life experience" before I can complete a memoir. Anyway, I'm addicted to their books. Both write about their wacky, unusual upbringings, their addictions and psychoses, their love life (both are fabulous gay men) and just overall crazy personal anecdotes. Check out the links.
David Sedaris
Augusten Burroughs

---Favorite TV Show---
Since its summer most of the great shows are on hiatus and we're left to watch crap tv. A couple of shows that captured my attention (not so crappy) are both reality tv shows, one is about dancing while the other one is a social experiment. So You Think You Can Dance is just plain good fun to watch (not to mention loads of cute guys) while the British Big Brother is quite interesting because of the various twists for this year's version (technically I don't watch this on my tv, instead I watch it online but the computer is practically tv).
So You Think You Can Dance
Big Brother UK

---Favorite Movie---
How much did I like this movie...I liked it enough for me to watch it three times (three different theaters, cities and company). Although I was only in Paris for one day, I fell in love with it. This movie is comprised of different short films, each shot at a particular district in Paris by different directors. Each one uses a different approach for telling a story about the various kind of love (some good tear-jerkers, some hilarious comedies and even scary genres). If you have'nt seen it, go now!
Paris Je T'aime

---Favorite Website---
I don't need to explain how addictive youtube is... Facebook is a better version of myspace and definitely worth signing up for if you're not already a member. The last one is quite entertaining. Its pretty much online karaoke! As a Filipino, I'm required to like karaoke eventhough I sound like an old woman who is loosing her voice and can only hit one note...haha I'm quite pathetic. I can already imagine what Simon Cowell would say about my singing...(In Simon's British accent) "Just plain atrocious". Below are a couple of my poor attempts in becoming a recording artist. Feel free to criticize, throw some rotten tomatoes my way.
