Here Comes September

Thank goodness it’s September already. For me, September can only mean one thing: the start of the new season of US TV shows. And there are two shows I am most looking forward to watch this month – the sixth season of Bones and the second season of Glee. I’m so excited to watch these two shows for a number of reasons. For one, I’m totally crazy about Bones and I just can’t wait to watch the new season when Brennan comes back from Indonesia and Agent Booth returns from Afghanistan. Ever since that season five cliffhanger, I am so eager to see how Brennan and Booth’s working relationship changes after a year apart. I waited for two months for this and now that it’s September, I can’t really wait! I’ve read a few spoilers of the show’s sixth season and learned something surprising. I am a shipper by heart and this piece of news doesn’t sit well with me. I just hope it won’t be too long before us shippers get to see what we’ve been waiting to happen. And this time it should be for real, not in a dream sequence.

As for Glee, I got hooked on this show the minute I saw the Pilot episode. Glee is not just all about being happy with who you are no matter what other people think but more. Every episode teems with positivism and is very uplifting. But perhaps what makes the show’s second season special and a must-see is that Charice Pempengco will appear in it. Practically every Filipino Gleek anticipates her appearance on the show including me. I found a promotional trailer of Glee on You Tube, which to my delightful surprise features Emily Deschanel and Tamara Taylor from Bones. The video has poor audio quality, though (as I can’t find one with good audio). Bones season 6 premieres on September 23 while Glee season 2 starts on September 22 (US time).

Must Haves this Month

There are three music CDs I’ve been meaning to buy since late last year. On top of this very short list is Madonna’s latest compilation album, Celebration. Being an avid fan of the Queen of Pop, I told myself that I just got to have this album – particularly the two-disc edition. This edition includes practically all of my favorite Madonna songs – well, almost. Each disc contains 18 tracks including the song “Celebration” (love the fan video by the way – the one with Lourdes in it). Along with this is the Celebration: The Video Collection DVD, which I’m also planning to buy. Like the double disc CD, this one also contains most of Madonna’s hits through the years – but in video. Music videos of her classic hits such as “Material Girl,” “Like a Virgin,” “Open Your Heart,” “Like a Prayer,” and “Vogue” are included in the DVD as well as her newer hits like “Ray of Light,” “Frozen,” “Take a Bow,” “Don’t Tell Me,” “Hung Up,” and “Sorry.”

The other two must-have CDs for me is Glee: The Music, Volumes 1 & 2. I am one of the millions of Gleeks who tune in every week to watch the cast sing and perform various songs. And since I enjoy their musical performances so much, it’s only natural that I want to have the two volumes in my CD collection. I already have MP3s of Glee songs though but I think I want to buy the albums themselves.

However, due to financial setbacks I had in the past couple of months, I haven’t been able to get a copy of these albums. Hopefully I can get them by the end of the month.
