TVB,盛女愛作戰百萬觀眾,及狗仔隊 – 他媽的

April 26, 2012

TVB Bride Wannabes - pix 01

我知道掀起全香港熱話的 “盛女愛作戰” Bride Wannabes (十集 YouTube) 已經有很多坊間迴響與批評,英文虎報的文章“Hitched to a star”亦有很詳細報導。所以我亦不重複這些觀點,而只想與 TVB電視台及節目製作人,《盛女愛作戰》的上百萬電視觀眾,及狗仔隊分享幾句話。

我不知道怎樣可以有禮貌地批評,所以讓我借喜劇創作者 Ricky Gervais 在 Extras 批評  reality TV (真人實境秀), 電視觀眾, 和paparazzi (狗仔隊)的說話。

  1.  And fuck you, the makers of this show, as well!  [他媽的電視節目製作人/公司“, 
  2. And fuck you for watching this at home.  [他媽的家庭電視觀眾]”,
  3. You’re literally the gutter press. [你們根本就是坑渠記者。]

以下是 Ricky Gervais 在 Extras 的批評摘錄(及短片),

They [paparazzi (狗仔隊)] follow us round, and that makes people think we’re important, and that makes us think we’re important. […] If they stopped following us round taking pictures of us, people wouldn’t […] care, they’d get on with something else! They’d get on with their lives. You open the paper, and you see a picture of Lindsay Lohan getting out of a car, and the headline is, “Cover up, Lindsay, we can see your knickers!” Course you can see her knickers [底褲]; your photographer is lying in the road, pointing his camera up her dress, to see her knickers! You’re literally the gutter press. [你們根本就是坑渠記者。] [loudly, into his microphone]

And fuck you, the makers of this show, as well!  [他媽的電視節目製作人/公司You can’t wash your hands of this, you can’t keep going, “Oh, it’s exploitation but it’s what the public want!” No! [Maggie watches openmouthed] The Victorian freak show never went away. Now it’s called Big Brother. Or The X Factor, where in the preliminary rounds, we wheel out the bewildered to be sniggered at by multi-millionaires. And fuck you for watching this at home.  [他媽的家庭電視觀眾] [Gestures to the cameras] Shame on you. And shame on me. I’m the worst of all, ’cause I’m one of these people that goes, “Oh, I’m an entertainer. It’s in my blood.” Yeah, it’s in my blood ’cause a real job’s too hard. I would’ve loved to’ve been a doctor; Too hard, didn’t want to put the work in. Love to be a war hero; I’m too scared.”

盛女愛作戰 以五位《盛女》《剩女》的感情路為娛樂

April 26, 2012

TVB Bride Wannabes - pix 00

Here are the 10 episodes of “盛女愛作戰Bride Wannabes. And repost of the Apple Daily article 盛女熱潮意料中事 – 2012年04月22日. See my critique of the TV series “TVB,盛女愛作戰百萬觀眾,及狗仔隊 – 他媽的”.

盛女熱潮意料中事 – 2012年04月22日
陳志雲去年為無綫策劃的《盛女愛作戰》,掀起全城熱話,志雲坦言是意料中事,他說:「呢個係好 universal嘅題目,男女相處問題一定係共同話題。」有人認為節目做媒作假,但志雲力撐:「以我所認知冇任何作假做媒,因為岑應係新聞出身,唔會做媒。但從純粹一個新聞片製作,係有個爭議性喺度,你拍一個紀錄片,純粹係嗰件事發生,唔係你令到件事發生,佢哋參加聚會係你安排,但今次唔係新聞公共事務節目,亦冇隱瞞大家,所以係個幾有趣嘅論點。」

「我唔擺上市場」
有人認為節目一味鼓勵女性包裝自己來結識異性,似乎流於表面,忽略真正愛情,志雲說:「有呢啲睇法絕對好,大家可以拎出嚟討論,係咪鼓吹見仁見智,所以《光明頂》都有邀請聲討呢個節目嘅朋友嚟,討論越廣泛,大家得益越多。」
原來《盛女》名字曾多次改動,本曾考慮過用《剩女》,但節目編導岑應認為應尊重參賽者,故最終改為盛放的盛。近日有網民將節目名改為《盛女愛作賤》,志雲哈哈大笑說:「網民好有創意,其實我同班參賽者飯敍當日,我有提佢哋要心理上武裝起嚟,要有心理準備會有好多報道同網民講嘅嘢,你鍾意同唔鍾意都會有。我就真係天真咗少少,冇諗過狗仔隊會跟佢哋,亦冇提過社交網絡係咁起佢哋個底。」
話說回來,志雲其實也是盛男,對此志雲哈哈笑說:「如果你話盛放個盛就絕對唔係,因為自己冇乜優越嘅地方,賣剩嘅意思就絕對係。不過,我又唔覺自己係剩,因為我根本唔想賣,我都唔擺上市場,又何來剩呢?」

At the 2012 National Association of Broadcasters Show, I got to check out the DJI Innovations‘s Spreading Wings S800 (GPS auto flight stabilizing drone) in flight on the street and interviewed a sale rep to inspect the Spreading Wings S800 up close.

The full unit is about $20,000 including transmitter. According to DJI’s sales spec, the drone’s takeoff weight: 6kg, load weight: 2kg, ~16 mins max @ 6kg weight & 10Ah 6S battery. The drone is available end of April 2012. The remote control with screen (?) is available in about 3 months. Enjoy.

Here is my Cantonese interview with the Chinese sales rep using his mother-tongue for a more relaxed set of Q&As.

煙花美麗的秘密

February 4, 2012

鏗鏘集 RTHK 年年煙花燦爛 – 2012-01-22 (視像)

“煙花璀璨美麗,更是香港人的共同回憶,能夠將各種美麗的構思、幻想,演繹成為現實的製作,帶給市民歡樂和難忘的回憶,是毛偉誠的最大心願。

“設計煙花表演,就像繪畫,不同的是要運用煙花,在夜空中繪畫。” 現為港星煙火製作有限公司行政總裁的毛偉誠,他的家族自祖父一代已從事煙花製作,他包辦生產、設計和燃放,近年負責幻彩詠香江、維港煙花匯演等,作品多不勝數,令人印象深刻的有青馬大橋開幕的瀑布式煙花、香港回歸十周年煙花匯演等等。

維多利亞港賀歲煙花匯演,是香港由來以久的一個農曆新年賀歲節目,由1982年起,於每年的農曆年初二晚於維多利亞港上空舉行,至今己有三十年歷史,毛偉誠到底如何設計和部署龍年的煙花呢?璀璨煙花背後,兒孫三代又如何將傳統的煙花行業轉化為現代創意工業呢?”


Andy Rooney, ’60 Minutes’ Commentator/Chief Complainer, Passes Away at 92

November 5, 2011

I am saddened of the news that Andy Rooney passes away at 92 after saying goodbye to us on his last 60 Minutes appearance on Oct 2nd only only a month ago. I think Andy lived a great live speaking his mind as he saw things. I think if someone was doing things that he/she love, then the person isn’t working at all. By that standard, it was wonderful to see Andy work till only weeks ago.

Goodbye Andy. You are missed.

LA Times, “Andy Rooney dies at 92; ’60 Minutes’ longtime curmudgeon – His end-of-show essays turned him into a reluctant celebrity. TV Guide called him ‘America’s favorite grump.’ He retired in October 2011 after 33 years on the show.
