Wilhemlmina has some of the best citations ever!
--------------------------------------------------

Wilhelmina [to Bradford]: "I thought I smelled jewelry."

Fabia: "You must come to the ceremony. I won't be able to get married without my something old."
Wilhelmina: "Oh, with the veins in your legs, toi already have your something blue."

Marc: Little glitch. Teeny, tiny, Cindy Crawford mole-sized problem. It looks like St. Patrick's Cathedral is already booked for June 16.
Wilhelmina: What?!
Marc: What do toi get from St. Patrick's? Bad incense, and a bunch of guilty men in dresses.
Wilhelmina: Fabia?!...

"Ok, Betty. What's wrong?" Daniel asked. Betty had come to visit him for what she had described as a 'passing by'. However, Daniel could easily see through Betty's pretenses. Especially as she was pacing to and fro in front of his desk.
Betty stopped walking in continous lines, and stared at Daniel, wearing an innocent expression.
"Nothing's wrong. Why would anything be wrong? I've got a job that I love, a great family who haven't got any problems - yet, anyway." She was so stressed that her words came out hurried and high - pitched. Daniel raised his eyebrows; inclined his head. He was waiting...

Texts are created for mass consumption par the producers, but the text and its ideas and storylines are disemminated, perceived and interpreted differently par us- the audience ou be it consumers. This leads us onto Stuart hall's encoding/decoding model.

For Hall, the encoding/decoding model is a concept he originally devised where he explains that through the transmission of ideas and messages in the texts, Hall proposed three ways of lire and decoding texts: dominant, negotiated and oppositional. The dominant reading is where the viewer takes away that meaning from the TV montrer and accept...

 There is a striking contrast between America and her character
There is a striking contrast between America and her character
I've had this idea in the back of my head for a long while now, and after yet another pick asking whether ou not Betty should get a make over and be pretty, I decided to finally address my frustrations with this idea in soapbox form.

Regardless of what's been done in shows like link, upon which our Ugly Betty is based, I think the montrer will jump the requin if/when Betty gets a makeover and is suddenly beautiful and fashionable. Why? Well, I'll tell you.

First of all, this idea initially popped into my head when I was watching Beauty and the Beast with my roommate and she commented, "You know,...

Funny Seeing toi Here

Okay, I've seen this is usual here. So I say why not? I'll give it a try.

I only write Gio and Betty fanfiction. So I'll post the most generic one. One with several characters. I am open to commentaires of any kind. Sorry about characterization. I am really bad at that. So if my characters seem a bit OOC, ours with me, please. It's just my style.

And spanish is my first language. So there might be english grammar mistakes in here. But global, ensemble the story is not that bad, even if I say so myself.

The term 'representation' is one of the many key areas in Media and Cultural studies in relation to the concept of identity and how it is formed.

Representation refers to the way people, places etc are portrayed, especially in context of the media and how they are viewed par the audience, which is us. Because they are representations, this means therefore that characters and people on TV and film are branded, shaped, dressed and shown as they are on screen par the producers. In studying these representations, we are decoding them and then drawing on a range of meanings- be it fictional ou real;...

Here are (my) 10 reasons why Ugly Betty shouldn't be and may I add also, doesn't deserve to be cancelled in no particular order:

1) It is one of the few shows which has a worldwide fan base as big as it has already- from the US to the likes of Australia, UK, South Africa, China to name Ugly Betty's appeal is massive.

2) Despite falling ratings for season 3, and criticisms from some ex- Ugly Betty fans, most notably from the Benry and Getty quarters, it is actually a definite improvement over season 2, of which I didn't have much hope for, the longer it went on.

3)It is the only montrer I tune into...

When watching Ugly Betty- ou be it any other montrer ou movie, the narrative is one of the essential elements in understanding the story, in addition to which it forms the sequencing and ordering of events, as and when they happen.

The concept of narrative structure enables the likes of toi and I to understand the message, ideas and situations taking place within the film ou montrer through the ordering of those events occuring on screen. Alas, this is where meaning is also achieved. Although narrative structure and theory is not neccessarily based around semiotics- which I have touched upon during...

I wrote this a while il y a and was thinking if anybody wanted to read it they could :)


Disclaimer: Totally one hundred percent NOT mine…never have been…sadly never will be.

A/N: Hope toi all really enjoy this story. Sorry it’s so late coming but school has been crazy lately and I have been out of town anyway…I don’t know how it will end up yet, but I am thinking it will be Betty & Becks all the way…with Daniel friendship…kind of different for me but salut its worth a try.

We read images and pictures in an attempt to decode them and make sense of what they mean to us.

Semiotics is the study of signs but also of anything which stands for 'something else'. Signs can be anything: sounds, pictures, words, objects, hand gestures for example. Semiotics, which is also known as 'semiology' has been recognised and regarded as one of the main theoretical areas within media and cultural studies. I think this is because that we realise that there is plus than one way of lire a TV show, film, photo, poster. It is one thing describing what it looks like, but it is also another...

As a télévision show, Ugly Betty has been a worldwide success. From its original columbian telenovela: 'Betty Le Fea', the montrer has spanned various international versions of this comedy. The most well known incarnation that is televised in the Western world is the US's Ugly Betty.

But what attracts viewers and fans especially to Ugly Betty per se isn't just the humour and the drama aspects of this series but the characters, storylines and situations.

These characters, storylines, situations all deal with and explore themes and concepts relating to culture and identity.

Yesterday was the first episode of Ugly Betty here in Holland ( the Netherlands). I watched it and I've got to say that it is really cool. It does seem like another dutch montrer what is also about a ugly girl (named Lotte) in a fashion company, but I think Ugly Betty is gonna be way better than that.
And America Ferrera is a great actresse so it is gonna be great !

So about America Ferrera it is good. But the serie does seem a little bit fake. Like it wouldn't happen in the real world, toi know. Maybe I am wrong but that is just what I thaught about it. There were parts were it wasn't like that, but a lot were it was. It may changes during the season, I hope actually.
