TV Favorites

Game Of Thrones on HBO: My current Favorite, this show has EVERYTHING! Really, everything. Since i started watching it, i’ve been hooked. The show is about the power struggles of the noble houses of Westeros, a medieval land. Although the show is highly realistic, often translating real human emotions and situations into a fantasy setting, it will always be a Fantasy story, this combination of Real and Fantasy is what I love most about the show.

American Horror Story on FX: As a fan, I will be the first to admit that this anthology horror series is highly inconsistent and can often serve up some bad episodes. But it is so unique, and when it’s good, it’s really good. Every season deals is an entirely new story. My favorite is season 1, titled Murder House, it is about a dysfunctional family who move into an old Los Angeles home where many atrocities have occurred. And where those who have died inhabit the house as ghosts. Trust me, it makes for great television

Freaks and Geeks on Netflix: This show originally aired on NBC, in the year 2000, and only ran one season before it was unjustly canceled . Now it can be viewed on Netflix. It is about the Weir siblings, Sam and Lindsey, and their high school experiences living in 1980’s Michigan. Today the show is popular for introducing important comedic figures of today’s hollywood. Such as director Judd Apatow and actors James Franco and Seth Rogen. However the show is mostly remembered as a coming of age tale that perfectly captured what it’s like to be a teenager, that doesn’t really fit in. I watched this show when I was a Junior in high school, and I never related to anything else as strongly as i did to these characters.

A Personal Introduction

This is the post excerpt.

My name is Diego Mendoza, I was born in Maracaibo, Venezuela nearly 18 years ago. At the age of Seven I moved to the United States, old enough to remember where i came from. Because of this I still have deep ties to my home country, and actively participate in the Venezuelan community back home in Miami. I love Soccer, or futbol as i prefer to call it, and played for my High School during my Freshman and Sophomore years, now I play the game for fun. Other than Soccer, I also play golf, which I took up so i could spend more time with my father, and Basketball, a sport that I find immensely entertaining to watch. My father is an electrical engineer, who has managed to establish a successful company despite his humble beginnings, I consider him a great source of pride and motivation. I aim to follow in his footsteps, and become an electrical engineer, right now im in the Gator Engineering@Santa Fe program, and i hope this will be the first step in a long and challenging journey towards accomplishing that goal.

I consider myself a Cinephile, I am very fond of Film, I find the medium is the most effective way to translate real human experiences and emotions into quality entertainment. I am a huge fan of the Star Wars series of films, and the expanded universe that they inhabit. I am also very interested in music, I love classic Rock and Roll, and modern Hip Hop, two very different genres I know. Back home in Miami, I was in a band with my friends, I played the guitar, lets just say we weren’t very good. My biggest passion is Traveling, I love the world and the people that inhabit it. I spend most of my free time studying Geography and History, I want to be a knowledgeable traveller, my dream is to travel the world one day, and experience everything it has to offer.
