Yet another discriminatory job advert?

The first sentence of the job advert is crystal clear: "Our clients is looking for 5 Malaysian's to work in their outlet." However, it's later contradicted with its closing sentence of "Singaporean,PR,Malaysian's may apply."

I'm so tempted to call the HP no listed in the advert (93664966) to just seeking clarification what the hell the (nationality) requirement actually is.

By the way the job advert is titled, "Part/Full-Time Night Shift!!! CALL 93664966" and was listed on 10 Dec.

Ted on Jimmy Kimmel Live

Ted on Jimmy Kimmel Live. LOL. Haha. If you've missed out the movie "Ted", you really ought to find the DVD. Heh.


And of course who can't forget the part about the (rated) thunder song. Hur hur.

[thunder is heard outside]
Lori: I don't - I don't understand. I really don't. You're 35 years old and you're still scared of a little thunder?
John: I am not!
[Ted comes running into the bed]
Ted: Thunder buddies for life, right, Johnny?
John: Fucking right.
Ted: Alright, come on, let's sing the thunder song.
John: Alright.
John, Ted: [singing] When you hear the sound of thunder, / Don't you get too scared. / Just grab your thunder buddy / And say these magic words: / "Fuck you, thunder! / You can suck my dick! / You can't get me thunder / 'Cause you're just God's farts!"

The Comedy Central Roast of Donald Trump

The Comedy Central Roast of Donald Trump.

So, what is 'roast'? According to Wikipedia:

A roast is an event, almost exclusively in the United States, in which an individual is subjected to a public presentation of comedic insults, praise, outlandish true and untrue stories, and heartwarming tributes, the implication being that the roastee is able to take the jokes in good humor and not as serious criticism or insult, and therefore, show their good nature. It is seen by some as a great honor to be roasted, as the individual is surrounded by friends, fans, and well-wishers, who can receive some of the same treatment as well during the course of the evening. The party and presentation itself are both referred to as a roast. The host of the event is called the "roastmaster". Anyone who is honored in such a way is said to have been "roasted".


Also from Wikipedia on 'Comedy Central Roast':
The Comedy Central Roast of Donald Trump was originally taped on March 9, 2011.[18] Roasters included Whitney Cummings, Lisa Lampanelli, Jeffrey Ross, Marlee Matlin (interpreted by friend and business partner Jack Jason),Gilbert Gottfried, Anthony Jeselnik, Larry King, Snoop Dogg, and Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino.[19] Melania Trump, Ivanka Trump, Ice-T, Russell Simmons, John Legend, Lindsay Lohan, and David Foster were in the audience. The roast consisted of jokes toward Trump's hairstyle, his show The Apprentice, and his family. Jokes were also made about Jeselnik's fame (or lack thereof), Matlin's deafness, King's age, and Jersey Shore. Several roasters paid respect to Greg Giraldo, a Comedy Central Roast regular, who died on September 29, 2010. Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino was highly criticized for his performance; as a result, Comedy Central pulled several of his jokes from the television airing of the roast.[20] This roast was dedicated in memory of Greg Giraldo. This was also the first time someone served as roastmaster more than once, as Seth MacFarlane also roasted David Hasselhoff.

Well, assuming Senior Counsel Tan Chee Meng likes this particular song by Rod Stewart...

Reading this article about how Ng Boon Gay,the ex-CNB chief revealing that he has to spend life savings on case just compels me to re-post this great shot by Yahoo! in its article, "Prosecution’s star witness admits she ‘wasn’t truthful’ to CPIB". And, hey, to add one quoted lyric of the song, "What a wonderful world". (Just for the fun of it! Hur hur.)

Ng's lawyer Tan Chee Meng is probably, like, "Yes, I think to myself .......what a wonderful world."

And this is the great song I'm referring to performed by Rod Stewart:

of Liri Farfus gets a taste of the Nordschleife

Check out this clip, "A hell of a ride: Liri Farfus gets a taste of the Nordschleife". It's about the BMW Works driver and DTM racer Augusto Farfus 'scaring' his wife Lili by taking her around the Nurburgring in an M3. Quite impressive with 437,572 views since 24/09!


Heh. I like this one comment by YouTuber joelsnake8: she sounds like a pikachu!

Kao & Nat - Deep in My Heart (acoustic version) [ENG/ESP SUB]


Kao & Nat - Deep in My Heart (acoustic version) [ENG/ESP SUB]. Okay, I admit I'm surprised that I can enjoy the acoustic version--by Kao Jirayu and Nat Natcha--of the 'rock' song, "Deep in my Heart (Tum Yuu Nai Jai)" of the movie, "SuckSeed". (Even blogged about the upbeat OST once. Heh.)

The Slender Games featuring Slender Man in the Hunger Games!

Yes, yes...I know I can't get enough of the movie, Hunger Games. Still hungry for more, aren't you too?

So here's a hilarious YouTube clip, The Slender Games. (Impressive at 695,692 views since 13/09).



It injects the legendary Slender Man character into the movie.

For the clueless, Slender Man is a mythical creature often depicted as a tall, thin figure wearing a black suit and a blank face. According to the legend, he can stretch or shorten his arms at will and has tentacle-like appendages protruding from his back. Depending on the interpretations of the myth, the creature can cause memory loss, insomnia, paranoia, coughing fits (nicknamed “slendersickness”), photograph/video distortions and can teleport at will.

Well, you can find out more about Slender Man in Mythology and Culture here. Oh, and there's a game too, "Slender: The Eight Pages". Official website of the game: here & download the game for free here.

May the odds be ever in your favor...that you escape the creepy thing: Slender Man!

Lincoln - a biographical drama film 2012

No, this time the movie, Lincoln is not about a politician cum a vampire hunter. It will be a biographical drama film directed by Steven Spielberg, starring Daniel Day-Lewis as Abraham Lincoln and Sally Field as Mary Todd Lincoln. The film is based on Doris Kearns Goodwin's biography of Lincoln, Team of Rivals: The Political Genius of Abraham Lincoln, and covers the final four months of Lincoln's life. (Source: Wikipedia)

Here's the trailer, "Lincoln" which has already gathered 3,185,604 views since 13/09!

Armadillo World Cup 2014 mascot: Amijubi, Fuleco or Zuzeco?


Well, at least that's what Fifa said that Brazilians will have until mid-November to choose the mascot's name from three choices - Amijubi, Fuleco and Zuzeco. (Previous Fifa World Cup mascots can be found here.)

The use of a three-banded armadillo for the next World Cup mascot is really appropriate as it's a a vulnerable species and therefore, in line to 2014 Fifa World Cup's goal to use the event as a platform to communicate the importance of the environment and ecology.

Finally a smartphone...

It's official: I love my Samsung Galaxy Note! Yes, it takes some time to get used to its size. Heh. No wonder, this model is said to be hybrid of a phone and a tablet--or simply call it as a phablet.

Jimmy Kimmel Live - First Look: iPhone 5 shows how the respondents reacted to supposedly iPhone 5 (actually the product is iPhone 4S).


And this is the actual comparison in details for the two products.

Kwon Soon Keun, a drummer's passion

I'm amused reading this STOMP article, "See how drummer upstages sexy female singer with his moves". The elderly drummer with obviously so much passion in his act clearly stole the show from the sexy female singer! Heh.

It makes me want to find out more about the drummer, Kwon Soon Keun. Here's the HD clip in the YouTube, "Korean Drummer Steals The Show - My Way". Uploaded on 16 Dec last year, it has gathered a respectful 878,492 views.

It's uploaded by one mingu1980 with the following info:

Kwon Soon Keun became a worldwide YouTube sensation when someone posted 'Korean Drummer Steals The Show' on YouTube several years ago.
I was so fascinated by his drumming and went on to make a documentary film called 'A DRUMMER'S PASSION'.

The film was well received by public and it was selected for screenings at 2011 Vancouver Asian Film Festival and 2011 Toronto Reel Asian Film Festival. Mr. Kwon and I were on CP24 and Rogers TV Daytime for interviews and the popularity of the film was so high that we got so much attention despite it is only a short film.

Now, we are planning to make a feature film on Mr. Kwon and he seems happy to get his spotlight back at 71. (He is turning 72 in 2012.)

He has been playing with young musicians in 20's and 30's and he seems to fit well with them. Recently, he performed in front of more than 600 people and I recorded the performance to share with the rest of the world. This may not become another 'Korean Drummer Steals The Show' but I hope more and more people watch his video and feel the joy as much as I do.

Mingu
Director of A Drummer's Passion

Kwon Soon Keun: truly a Drummer with Passion

...I find it all so amusing...that my drummer steals the show?

Further check on the YouTube leads to this clip, "Korean drummer takes the show (Original Upload)" which was uploaded on 15/12/07 with 1,890,356 views. It features the younter Kwon Soon Keun who was stealing the show again with his antique. LOL.


Oh, and this is the trailer of the documentary, "A Drummer's Passion".


Pity that YouTube has no full documentary. Yet. Heh.
