Hilarious. I love this part when the T-Rex looks like Bart Simpson. That could explain the 'love-hate' relationship between him & Homer (potential prey in the prehistoric past!). Heh. Check out the clip, "The Simpsons - Homer Evolution".

Can't wait to watch this highly praised film "Confessions" ("Kokuhaku").
It begins in the classroom. A devastated mother, an ice-cold teacher, Moriguchi sensei is looking for the murderer of her four year old daughter, a student from her own class. In a series of cruel, and horrific acts, Confessions is a disturbing film that plunges into a world of obsession, retribution and vengeance. From Tetsuya Nakashima, director of Kamikaze Girls and Memories of Matsuko, Confessions has become a massive box office hit that has left the whole of Japan on the edge of its seat.
Quoted from the 14th Japanese Film Festival, "Confessions".

Some random photos taken from the recent Malacca trip. It was relaxing. Very relaxing. Heh.
1. At St Paul's Church...
2. ...nearby some entrepreneur getting a tourist' money by letting her posing with an iguana. I smell fear. Heh.
3. A shot from the top of the hill where St Paul's Church is.
4. The A Famosa.
5. A magnificently red Christ Church.
6. A fountain in front of the Church.
7. The entrance to the Jonker Street (it's happening at night! With the road is closed & various stalls magically set up!)
8. Chicken rice balls at one of the stalls. Over-rated.
9. Decided to hop onto the cruise along the Melaka River. They style their bridges well...
10. ...oh, and so do the houses near the river.
11. A very slow moving monorail which the boat can easily overtake.
12. An interestingly empty pirate-theme theme park.
14. A night shot of the Christ Church.
15. A fun karaoke performance at the Jonker Street with two uncles sportingly dancing.
16. The Stadhuys which somehow I missed in the day.
And no, I'm not one of the 37 society members from Singapore. (The Clouds Appreciation Society boast of 24,049 members from 85 different countries.)
Reading at the Society's Manifesto is enough to convince me that my other blog, "Because the moon already does another's..." or the more apt URL "http://thecloudsrepresentmyheart.blogspot.com/"--which so far has featured 146 shots of clouds--may just belong to this 'eccentric' society.
and that life would be immeasurably poorer without them.
We think that they are Nature’s poetry,
and the most egalitarian of her displays, since
everyone can have a fantastic view of them.
We pledge to fight ‘blue-sky thinking’ wherever we find it.
Life would be dull if we had to look up at
cloudless monotony day after day.
We seek to remind people that clouds are expressions of the
atmosphere’s moods, and can be read like those of
a person’s countenance.
Clouds are so commonplace that their beauty is often overlooked.
They are for dreamers and their contemplation benefits the soul.
Indeed, all who consider the shapes they see in them will save
on psychoanalysis bills.
And so we say to all who’ll listen:
Look up, marvel at the ephemeral beauty, and live life with your head in the clouds!
...then again, the membership cost of this society (£4 + postage) is enough to break the spell of a fleeting thought to feel belong to a larger picture.
Nah, I will prefer being a fair, free & feeble cloud of cumulus type than being a high flying cloud of cirrus category which demands a membership fee.
So count me out, The Clouds Appreciation Society! (Not that they're offering a membership anyway. But well...)

Check out this hilarious clip, "Don't Stop Your Screaming (Parody)". Yes, it's a parody of a catchy song from TV series, Glee titled "Don't Stop Believing".

Yes, here are the three of creatively created Inception trailer mashup! Rambo-Inception trailer mashup (116 views so far), Forrest Gump-Inception trailer mashup (196 views) & Shrek-Inception trailer mashup (287 views). It's like discovering a gem as they are really well inceptioned, uhm, you know what I mean...
My personal favorite is still that of Lost season 6. Heh.
Check out the official website for Singapore Toy, Games and Comic Convention at http://www.singaporetgcc.com/ (cool screenshot, isn't it?). I am surely looking forward to attending this event! Heh. Take note of the date: 10/12 - 12/12.
Marvel Comics will make its debut at the Singapore Toy, Games and Comic Convention (STGCC) next month.
STGCC organiser Reed Exhibitions said this will be the first convention in Asia that Marvel is exhibiting at.
Fans will be able to get up close and personal with the people behind characters such as the X-Men, the Incredible Hulk and Iron Man.
Marvel talent at the convention includes Spanish comic book artist Salvador Larroca, and other illustrators Leinil Yu, Giuseppe Camuncoli, Esad Ribic, Harvey Tolibao and Alex Maleev.
Artistic talent from Singapore and other Southeast Asian countries will also be showcasing their creative artwork at the convention.
In addition, aspiring comic book artists will get a chance to hear tips during panel sessions with creators, writers and illustrators.
International talent scout C.B Cebulski will also give an inside look into the world of Marvel and what he looks for in the next Marvel artist.
Ms Yeow Hui Leng, project director, Reed Exhibitions, said: "Marvel's extensive popularity is manifested through successful box office ticket receipts of Spider-Man, Iron Man, the Incredible Hulk, and The X-Men series because the comics these characters are based on have strong plot lines that dwell on universal themes like good versus evil, heroes versus villains, which resonate well in Asia."
STGCC will be held at the Suntec International Convention Centre from December 10 to 12.

Downtown east murder which is said to be related to gang fight leads me to wonder about the existence of secret societies in Singapore.
