Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening by Robert Frost

I forgot when I heard this poem, but from the second I heard it, I've fallen in love with it. This morning, it came up in my thoughts and I got to thinking, "Hey, why don't I post it in my blog? It'd be nice to be able to share this beautiful poem with all my friends."

Badass Trailer for Zack Snyder's Sucker Punch!



Being a huge nerd that I am and an avid fan of science fiction, I have been following this one project for quite some time actually. Finally, Warner Bros has released the trailer for Sucker Punch just recently that sent the entire blogosphere abuzz. Watching the trailer literally sent shivers down my spine!

AVENGERS ASSEMBLE!!!



Marvel Studios just rocked Comic-Con like never before. In the history of this fine convention, nothing has ever been this incredibly epic and this exciting. At the finale of their otherwise awesome panel highlighting Captain America and Thor, Kevin Feige brought the ENTIRE crew of The Avengers down to San Diego to make an appearance. Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury, Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man, Clark Gregg as Coulson, Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow, Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Chris Evans as Captain America, Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye, Mark Ruffalo as Bruce Banner. And at the helm is Joss Whedon.

The Glorious Steinems

There's this one song that I can't seem to get it out of my head. The song was featured on the TV Show 90210 season 2 in the episode "Sweaty Palms and Weak Knees" where Jessica Lowndes performed the song with the fictional band "The Glorious Steinem". I think the lyrics are so beautiful. But I can't seem to find the song anywhere on the internet. Below are the lyrics:
 
Like the way that I trip and fall,
You like to laugh when I dent my car
I'm always in a rush
Sometimes I tend to care too much

Like the way that I burn my food
You like the way that I snap at you
Every morning I hit the snooze
And everyday I seem to lose my shoes
 
I always cheer for the wrong team
Always bring you wrong the drink
Always leave my hair in the sink
And I talk when you're trying to think

Thats how I know you love me
Thats how I know you care
Thats how I know you want me
Cause you take me as I am...

And here's the clip of the scene:

Jakarta International Airport - Terminal 3


You can dismiss this post as the most unimportant whatever, but I was waiting to pick up my friend from the airport whose plane got delayed for 2 hours and I got to thinking, "Hey, why not check out the new Terminal 3? I've never been there and certainly don't know how the interior looked like...". I went in and took some nice pictures :P



CUT///COPY (Live in Concert) - 10th July 2010 @ Bengkel Nightpark, Jakarta


I've been wanting to write about this for quite some time now. As you can see from the posting date, it's long overdue :p. I'm a huge fan of Cut/Copy and the second I found out about their concert in Jakarta, I immediately rushed to the nearest ticket venue, which was Sushi Groove Taman Anggrek, to purchase 3 early bird tickets for moi, my sister, and my best friend (another one bought it on the spot on the D-Day). So, suffice to say that I was pretty excited about this event, presented to you by the ever fabulous Ismaya Live and boy, do they deliver ever! 

This was the first time I ever attended a concert by Ismaya Live and let me tell you, it was the indie scene of my dream. If I'm imagining an indie rock concert, it would be exactly just as what Ismaya Live brought to life and even better at that. I loved everything from the concept, the set up, the choice of the venue, etc. Even when you're just about to enter the venue, you could feel that it was gonna be an amazing night. You can see crowds of fashionable young glitteratis, with their stylish clothes and edgy make up, chatting up their friends, smoking, drinking, and already talking about the after-party later at another Ismaya venues.

Is Zombies The New Vampires?

I have always been a fan of zombies and post-apocalyptic fiction. That is why I was so excited when I found about this new series of books that comes from an author named Carrie Ryan. I was looking for a book where I can immerse myself into its world and so rarely I can find the kind of books that can make me stay up late at night and lose sleep over it. What I want is a new series with a good critical acclaim, which is what The Forest of Hands and Teeth is. I am making it a priority to hunt for these books!

The Forest of Hands and Teeth is a New York Times best-selling post-apocalyptic zombie novel by first-time author Carrie Ryan that is marketed to young-adults. This is the first volume of a projected trilogy. As the story opens, an unexplained disaster has turned much of the human race into mindless, cannibalistic undead. They roam the forest of the title, seeking to destroy a band of survivors barricaded inside a walled village deep in the woods. However, the fence that protects these villagers also imprisons them within a dystopian society marked by violence, secrecy, and repression.

Kylie Minogue's Mountain of Orgy

In the week when Lady Gaga released her new music video, all eyes were pointing to "Alejandro" to see what other crazy antics she has come up with this time. However, little did we know that within that same week, Kylie Minogue also released her new music video of her newest single "All The Lovers" from her new album titled "Aphrodite". A video that is actually also worth the buzz that Alejandro has received. I love how it conveys the message that love is universal without regards to gender or race. Check out the video by clicking this link!

 
Intro to the music video: people start stripping down to their undies

 
...and making out on the street

Kylie emerges. All hail to the goddess!

If I Can Dream: An Interactive New Media Entertainment Catering to Your Voyeuristic Nature

If I Can Dream is an online reality show created by Simon Fuller. Simon Fuller is a British artist manager, television producer and creator of the Idol franchise (as in Pop Idol, American Idol, Etc. Idol) and So You Think You Can Dance. He is, or has been, the manager of performers and entertainers including David and Victoria Beckham, Spice Girls, Carrie Underwood, Kris Allen, David Cook, Adam Lambert and others. 

If I Can Dream follows performers (aspiring actors, singers, models, athletes) who are called the dreamers who also live together in a a house in Hollywood. The show isn’t exactly reality TV as it is not shown on conventional TV and you can only watch the episodes via their official website. There’s no judges or voting off. There’s not a pot of money sitting at the end. The goal is to get a job that will allow the dreamers to get out of the house and to move on to a bigger career. The show is just the first step.

Sounds boring maybe. And what is so special about the show, you may ask. Well, the twist is that the house is wired with 60 cameras and when you visit their website you can watch the live streaming from your laptop or computer. You can watch the participants' every move, every action, and every conversation. In real time! Video feeds are available at both 500 Kbps and 1 Mbps which makes it viewable to anyone in Indonesia who has an adequate broadband internet connection. The live feeds stream with very little discrepancies. If I Can Dream will be the largest persistent live "event" produced by a media company!

Wonder Woman Gets Stylish With A Makeover

Okay, who doesn't know Wonder Woman? Wonder Woman has been one of the most recognizable face in comic books and pop culture. When you hear someone say the word "Superheroine", her face pops up in your mind. She is considered as one of The Holy Trinity in DC Universe, often featured alongside Superman and Batman. Wonder Woman has been the feminist icon for decades highlighting her strength, intelligence, and ideals as inspirations for women everywhere. In the 70s the character was made popular to mainstream audiences with her own TV Series starring Lynda Carter.

For 69 years since its inception, Wonder Woman has had few significant costume changes. And now with the comic book's 600th issue, incoming series writer J. Michael Straczynski and DC Co-Publisher (also an acclaimed penciller) Jim Lee, decided that Wonder Woman needs a new look and a new direction. This, in part, is attributed to DC's attempt to modernize their superheroes, making them more grounded and realistic. Superheroes who were created several decades ago need to stay relevant to this day and age and updating their costumes can make them more relate-able to new generation of readers.

Mind-Bending, Building-Sized Brilliant Inception Ads in NYC


The dream is real. We're down to the last few weeks before Chris Nolan's Inception hits theaters and jump starts the summer movie season. Check out these awesome building-sized ads for Inception found in New York City that I have to show you guys. One of them has water flowing out windows to make it look like a dream. The other one also plays with reality by bending back the entire wall of the building. Absolutely brilliant marketing for a brilliant movie that certainly deserves it. I just love seeing marketing that actually integrates the concept of the movie into the design.



Inception is both written and directed by acclaimed Oscar nominated British filmmaker Christopher Nolan, of Memento, Insomnia, Batman Begins, The Prestige and The Dark Knight. Nolan wrote the screenplays for Memento, Batman Begins (with David Goyer), The Prestige & The Dark Knight (both with Jonathan Nolan).

Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows Part 1 Full Trailer

Warner Bros. has released first full trailer for "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows," the first part of which hits theaters in November 2010. Also presented in 3D. I'm still shivering from watching the trailer. It really is the finale of the worldwide phenomenon. It really is the motion picture event of a generation. And it also signifies the end of an era. I'll just go to my dark corner and weep quietly now. Sob...sob... :'(

Kinky Sex, Lesbian Sex, Angry Sex, And A Really Really Twisted Sex

Just another day in Bon Temps and just another episode of True Blood.

I've always made a rule for myself to underpromise and overdeliver so that the people whom I owe my promise to wouldn't be too excited, get their hopes up, or be too disappointed. This is why when True Blood promised to deliver the the sex scene that they claim will become the watercooler moment of the next twenty years, they have set the bar higher than before.

Usually when a TV show promises to deliver a huge cliffhanger or twist or other WTF moments, they rarely deliver (hello, 90210! Yes, I'm talking about you) and only few manages to make your jaw drop and scream "What the hell?! What the hell!?" in front of your TV/Laptop screen (Alias, Lost, Grey's Anatomy), but oh BOY do they deliver this time! And we just got into the third episode of the current third season, making me can't wait to see what else is in store for the rest of the season.

I never thought that any TV show can get any more shocking, more controversial, and nastier than how True Blood has been. But then again, I remembered this is True Blood, born from the genius mind of Allan Ball (Six Feet Under), anything can happen in True Blood. This is, after all, the show that has been nicknamed as "Vampire Porn" and "The Hottest Summer Show from HBO" in a better term.

Now onto the sex talks, here are the sexlights (sex and highlights) of that said episode. And yes these all happened in one episode.

The kinky sex A.K.A. the seizure inducing sex
The first sex scene featuring vampire Franklin Mott and Tara.
Tara goes, "Go ahead. Bite me. Fucking do it!"
But he goes, "No."
"Why not?"
"Because you want me to..."

The lesbian sex
The second sex scene featuring vampire Pam (one of the deliciously spicy character on True Blood) with an Estonian stripper.
Pam was like, "Lie back, sweetheart. Think about Estonia."

From the look of her face, I'm sure she won't be thinking about Estonia at all.

The angry sex and the really really twisted sex
The angry sex and the really really twisted sex happened in one scene. Featuring vampire Bill and his maker, Lorena. Now brace yourself for this one... Things get spoiler-y from here on. So if you don't wanna know more and would rather wait to watch it yourself, just get out of this page.

Scott Pilgrim VS. The World: An Epic of Epic Epicness

His encounters include skateboarders, vegan rock stars, and identical twins.

Also starring Chris Evans (Fantastic Four) and Brandon Routh (Superman Returns) as two of the exes.
 
Ramona's seven evil exes.
