Bunkface - Escape Dance

I was bored today, decided to make a rhythm/lead guitar cover for Bunkface's song entitled Escape Dance.

I did around 3 takes each for the rhythm and lead parts, so near-perfection is out of the question here.

It took me about 2~3 hours of fiddling with Sony Vegas Pro before I finally figured out how to get the stupid split-screen thingy to work.

And another 5~6 hours to upload the friggin video, courtesy of Malaysia's "faster-than-a-speeding-snail" broadband speed.

At the end of the day, I think that I'm quite pleased with the results, if you guys don't mind me saying so.

So, anyways here's the video open to your scrutiny.


Enjoy =)

I see ignorant people

One of the main reasons why I stopped watching the Brazil-Portugal game last night was because of the hopelessly ignorant commentator.

= = = = = = = = = = = = = =

What exactly did he do?

He called Julio Cesar and Julio Baptista, Joo-lee-oh instead of Who-lee-oh.

He called Juan Joo-an instead of Who-an

= = = = = = = = = = = = = =

Now you might be thinking that I'm being extremely nit-picky about the subject, and I have to admit I am being nit-picky, but that does not change the fact that this seriously pissed me off.

Look, it might be acceptable for us regular folks at home watching the game to be oblivious to how you actually pronounce a person's name.

However, if:

1. You're getting paid to speak
2. Whatever you're saying is being broadcast live for the whole world to scrutinize

You'd better be doing your homework, and figure out how to pronounce each player on each teams' names to at least show some courtesy/respect and say his name right. Plus, it's not like Juan and Julio are some exotic names that only show up twice every decade. In fact, Juan ranks at #52 out of 1220 and Julio checks in at #247 for the most popular US baby names of 2009. [courtesy of thinkbabynames.com] Not too shabby.

Is that so freaking hard to do?

Damn. Absolutely ridiculous.

= = = = = = = = = = = = = =

Oh, and it was 0-0 when I stopped watching the game. I don't know how it ended, nor could I care less. Thank you Mr. Commentator. =)

Wishy Washy

I woke up today at 12 noon and thought about this question that my friend once asked me:

It is a magical day, and on this particular day, everyone on the surface of the Earth gets to have ONE wish fulfilled.

= = = = = = = = = = = = =

What would yours be?
(and no.. you can't wish "to have more wishes"... that's just....pfft...lame)

= = = = = = = = = = = = =

It might seem like a weird question that you normally give the weirdest answers to (i.e. Lifetime supply of ginger ale, have an invisibility cloak, be able to fly etc.).

But try looking past those kinda stuff and think about this question on a more....let's say..."philosophical" level.

You know..... the "what's my purpose in life" kinda way of thinking.

A little bit of soul-searching ain't gonna hurt no one. right?

A feeling I feel when I feel like feeling the feeling I felt before

I had dinner tonight with my family +guests.

Menu: Spanish chicken w/side salad. Absoballylutely delicious.

According to my Umi, it's a pretty easy dish to prepare, so she thought of showing me how to make it earlier this evening. (nanti kat US boleh buat untuk kawan *wink wink*). But alas, I had other plans.


watching Lagenda Budak Setan.
good news = it cost me 5 ringgits for the movie which is dirt-effin-cheap.
bad news = kecewa ngan movie. it was like a headless chicken driving a ferrari on a Malaysian highway; recipe for instant failure)

= = = = = = = = = = = = = =

Later that evening: 10pm. Had a few drinks....of teh o' ais limau at Awwal Maju, while watching Spain vs. Switzerland. Great Atmosphere. Great Company. As for the match.....

Final Score:

Swiss 1 - 0 Spain

bottom line: kecewa ngan Spain.

= = = = = = = = = = = = = =

It's now 2 am. I think i've had a pretty mengecewakan day. Nasib baik dinner was top notch. Nak tido...
