MAN OF STEEL - Official Trailers with 2 Voice-Overs

MAN OF STEEL - Official Trailer (2013) [HD] with voice over of Kevin Costner who plays Jonathan Kent, Clark’s adopted father on Earth. And another trailer, "MAN OF STEEL International Trailer" (exactly the same sequence visually) with the voice over of Russell Crowe, who plays Clark’s biological father Jor-El from Krypton. Oh, man...can hardly wait for the movie!

Kevin Costner / Jonathan Kent voice-over:

“You’re not just anyone. One day, you’re going to have to make a choice; you have to decide what kind of man you wanna grow up to be. Whoever that man is, good character or bad, he’s going to change the world.”

Russel Crowe / Jor-El voice-over:
“You will give the people an ideal to strive towards. They will race behind you. They will stumble. They will fall. But in time, they will join you in the sun. In time, you will help them accomplish wonders.”

Thumbs-up for the both trailers!

Adding new post to INNIT: Timing is everything?

Indeed. As shown by the screenshot of Innit.nuffnang.com on 22/07 00:05AM, I effortlessly get my posts to be part of the Featured Posts. The trick is to add the post immediately after midnight. Easy, huh? But unless the content of the post is really much interesting, this kind of trick does not guarrantee your post to stay long in the so-called Hall of Fame of Featured Posts. Heh.


So what's the point of this post, you'd ask me? I don't know. Perhaps to make more people adding their posts after midnight? Evil grin. Let's have a late night together, bloggers! Hur hur.

3:10 to Yuma

Yeah, finally managed to watch 2007 movie, "3:10 to Yuma" & I've got to say that I almost forget how much I like cowboy movies.

The main characters - screenshots from the YouTube trailer, "3:10 to Yuma Official Trailer!!!!!!!":


By the way, the movie is the remake of the 1957 film of the same name, making it the second adaptation of Elmore Leonard's short story Three-Ten to Yuma.

3.10 TO YUMA. 1957.


Completely agree with Roger Ebert in his review of the movie:
Mangold's version is better still than the 1957 original, because it has better actors with more thought behind their dialogue. Christian Bale plays not simply a noble hero, but a man who has avoided such risks as he now takes and is almost at a loss to explain why he is bringing a killer to justice, except that having been mistreated and feeling unable to provide for his family, he is fed up and here he takes his stand. Crowe, however, plays not merely a merciless killer, although he is that, too, but a man also capable of surprising himself. He is too intelligent to have only one standard behavior which must fit all situations, and is perhaps bored of having that expected of him.

PrimaDéli 20-cent waffle promotion

PrimaDéli last Friday had a 20-cent waffles promotion at 35 outlets for the first 100 customers. Started at 2 pm, the queue had even been formed at 12:35 PM at one of the outlet. You might have saved $1.10 but at the cost of about 1.5 hours? It's hardly something to be excited about this promotion then, right? Heh. I'd love to be at Punggol Plaza next promotion on Aug 10 to take the photo of the queue, though.

To celebrate their 20th anniversary, PrimaDéli held a 20 cent waffles promotion at 35 outlets for the first 100 customers yesterday. This is an on-going promotion that will take place on the 2nd Friday of every month till October.

The promotion starts at 2pm and each of the first 100 customers is allowed to purchase one plain waffle for 20 cents. It usually retails at $1.30.

Yesterday's promotion was so popular, that waffles were sold out within an hour at most outlets. 35 out of a total 36 outlets participated in the promotion and sold 3,500 waffles.

A queue started to form at 12.35pm at Punggol Plaza and the 100 waffles were sold out within 35 minutes. This was the first outlet to complete the promotion.

The next dates for waffle days are on August 10, September 14 and October 12.

For those who prefer egg tarts, there will be a one-for-one deal on July 20. This promotion will be held at all PrimaDéli outlets islandwide.
From Asiaone, "20-cent Prima Deli waffles on every 2nd Friday".

Singapore Slingers ... and Philippines Property Showcase 2012?!!

How on the basketball court does Singapore Slingers relate to--yes, you read it right--Philippines Property Showcase 2012?!?!

Apparently they're related. Somehow. Received the email from 'Singapore Slingers' (the full email address is michelle.johnson@singaporeslingers.com) with the puzzling content about the property showcase. Perhaps Singapore Slingers will soon expand to Singapore AND Philippines Slingers, eh? Hur hur.

Akon says, "Well done, Wonder Girls!"

Looper

Looper. Check out the cool trailer here.


From Wikipedia: In a futuristic gangland, a 25 year-old killer named Joseph Simmons (Gordon-Levitt) works for a Mafia company in Kansas City in the year 2042 as a "Looper", where he kills and disposes of people who are sent by their employers known as "Gat Men" from their corporate headquarters in Shanghai from the year 2072. Loopers, like himself, are used as foot soldiers and are well paid on the terms that all hostages must never escape, including Loopers themselves. Gat Men are New York City Dialect-sounding men who are hired by a Southern Dialected Godfather, who is portrayed by Jeff Daniels, who are being used as sentries, and each Gat Man has been given complete authority and responsibility in controlling their own group of Loopers. When one target arrives however he recognizes the 55 year-old victim (Willis) as himself and hesitates, allowing his older self to escape. The resulting failure of his job causes the Gat Men to come after him, forcing him to fight for his life as he hunts his older self.

Indeed a promising show, yes? (Even the movie poster looks cool.)

Copyright Claim by Kong Hee on Youtube parody videos! WTF?!! (Singapore's Biggest Charity Scandal 1989-2012)

Read this Facebook page, "Copyright Claim by Kong Hee on Youtube parody videos! WTF?!! (Singapore's Biggest Charity Scandal 1989-2012)" by DiarySG.

(NOT A JOKE) WTF???!!!

LATEST UPDATE: WE HAVE JUST RECEIVED AN OFFICIAL MESSAGE (or WARNING) FROM KONG HEE to stop making parodies about Kong Hee on Youtube!?!

http://www.youtube.com/DiarySG

Yes, the same man (Kong Kee) in that Singapore's Biggest Charity Scandal from City Harvest Church.

Reason given is: ''Copyright claim by Kong Hee''!?! Wow, that video is a obviously a homemade video, self-editted video & it is obviously a parody & you claim copyright??? Why don't you claim copyright from all the international news agency from filming you as you attended court? So if we ever resort to make a Hitler Parody, Kong Hee, you will also claim copyright??

Wow, Kong Hee, do you even have a sense of humour? Can you even take creative feedback? Seriously, to date, team DiarySG has made parodies on Nicole Seah, Tin Pei Ling, Low Thia Khiang, Tony Tan, Tan Cheng Bock, Tan Jee Say, Chiam See Tong, Steven Lim, Ronaldo, Wayne Rooney, SDP, PAP, Workers Party, England National Football Team, Singapore Football national team, New Nation, and even Lee Kuan Yew etc etc. Did any of the above persons or organisation claim copyright? Of course not! Because they got feedback via a creative, satirical & humourous way!

Did Nicole Seah, NSP and/or all Singapore opposition parties claim copyright for this?

We were even featured on Taiwan TV News.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QmQ9irUm4EI


SMRT also not as petty as you, Kong Hee, because they laughed at our light-hearted approach towards the train breakdowns!
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IaX5IGk85L0


Did Workers Party or Yam Ah Mee ever claim copyright for this???
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gWAht973YQA


Okay, maybe Singapore State Media boycotts us because we are 'too creative' for them.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xjbHHREzYFY


Not even New Nation or Lee Kuan Yew even made a big hoo-ha for this parody!
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bd9_yv64S1g


Did that Korean boyband or Lee Kuan Yew ever claim copyright for this???
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gAHgKYnlm3g


Even the mighty PAP has a sense of humour, unlike you, Kong Hee!!!
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NHGUddUZYVY


But, Wow, Kong Hee, just WOW! We thought we were being nice by giving you feedback with humour. In fact, if you watch the video, it actually has a subliminal hint of empathy, pity and support for your case & sorry predicament. We even raised awareness for a fair trial for you & this is how you reply us?!?


Did we insult you? Did we defame you? Did we hurt your feelings? You feel guilty? Do YOU even know what is satire?? Are you trying to bully young bloggers and vloggers? Kong Hee, you think own the rights to the ''Fun Pack Song'' and ''Lady Gaga's Bad Romance''?


(This message was typed spontaneously from one of our Youtube team. It is out of frustration & immediately after just knowing that one of our original video might be in breach of Youtube terms & conditions due to ''Copyright claim from Kong Hee''. We will screenshot the original message from Kong Hee and reproduce it for the public if required.)

Kinetic Rain - World's largest kinetic art sculpture @ Changi Airport Terminal 1

Kinetic Rain - World's largest kinetic art sculpture @ Changi Airport Terminal 1.


World's largest kinetic art sculpture unveiled at Changi Airport by TokoZoso

SINGAPORE, 4 July 2012 -- Passengers and airport visitors entering the Departure Check-in Hall at Singapore Changi Airport's Terminal 1 (T1) can expect to stop in their tracks and be captivated by a new art installation. Kinetic Rain, as it is titled, takes pride of place at the terminal, enthralling visitors with its fluidity, distinctive shapes, elegant and refined movements and precision-perfect technology.

Kinetic Rain, installed as part of T1's recent refurbishment, is the icon of the revamped Departure Check-in Hall. This specially commissioned sculpture, a first in an airport globally, comes as a pair, each installed several metres apart from each other and visible from many areas of the Departure Check-in Hall.

Kinetic Rain is made up of 1,216 bronze droplets that transform elegantly into multiple shapes, akin to poetry in motion. Carrying an aviation theme, the key element in every shape shows the movement of flight through slow, fluid movements. Some of the more recognisable shapes include an aeroplane, hot air balloon and a kite. One can also make out a dragon and a flock of birds amongst the 16 different programmed segments.

Each droplet is connected to motors installed in the ceiling of the Departure Check-in Hall. The motors contain a high precision rotary encoder which keeps track of the exact position of each droplet. A computer programme is used to control the movement of the droplets to form Kinetic Rain's unique shapes and patterns. A video on the making-of Kinetic Rain can be viewed here.

Kinetic Rain was created over a span of 20 months. Artists, programmers and technologists were engaged to analyse the space available at T1 and conceptualise a masterpiece that would be representative of the new terminal. The refurbished T1 is aptly themed 'Tropical City' in keeping with Singapore's garden city status and where rain, is very much a part of the tropical climate.

Mr Yeo Kia Thye, Senior Vice President for Airport Operations, Changi Airport Group, said, "When we decided to upgrade Terminal 1 in 2008, we were mindful that people have fond memories of the terminal including the old Mylar Cords, the circular curtain of water that straddled three stories of the building. We wanted an art sculpture, which we found in Kinetic Rain, that was able to add the signature touch linking back to T1's illustrious past in a new and exciting way.

"With more than a thousand raindrops working together in harmony, Kinetic Rain also symbolises the thousands in the airport community who work together every day to provide our passengers and visitors with a positively surprising and memorable Changi Experience."

An audio commentary and official video are also available for visitors who wish to know more about Kinetic Rain. All they have to do is scan the QR code present at the display boards at the T1 Departure Check-in Hall with their smartphones.
