Pokemon parody (College Humor)

Pokemon parody (College Humor). LOL. Just take a look at those hilarious tag lines you'll encounter in the clip: "Pokemon. Buy 'em all", "Made 'em Up. Wasn't Hard At All", "Seriously. Buy 'em all", "Steal From Mom. She Won't Mind At All", "We Don't Care. Just Charge 'em all".

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.

Clearance - Animated Short

Clearance: An animated short about a group of incompetent Secret Agents.
 The chaos caused just by the wrongly use of a library card. Heh.

People cannot differentiate iPhone 5 & iPhone 4S?

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.

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.

Zelda Medley- Lindsey Stirling

Zelda Medley- Lindsey Stirling. A wonderful performance by a violinist Lindsey Stirling. According to Wikipedia article about her, Lindsey Stirling is an American violinist, musician, dancer, performance artist, and composer as well as a quarter-finalist on the fifth season of America's Got Talent, where she was known as the ‘Hip Hop Violinist’.


I miss the Legend of Zelda game. Heh.

Father and Daughter - a wonderful animation

Check out this touching short animation, "Father and Daughter". Love the background music...


Father and Daughter is a 2000 Dutch animated short film, made by Michaël Dudok De Wit. It won the 2000 Academy Award for Animated Short Film.

The film also received over 20 awards and 1 nomination and is considered the most successful in the series of works by Michaël.

Story plot

A father says goodbye to his young daughter and leaves. As the wide Dutch landscapes live through their seasons so the girl lives through hers. She becomes a young woman, has a family and in time she becomes old, yet within her there is always a deep longing for her father.

The story can be seen as a metaphor. The father leaving on a boat signifies his death and the images of the daughter watching for him to come back is signifying her always thinking about him throughout her life. Towards the end when the now elderly daughter begins to travel through the overgrown, dried up riverbed is supposed to explain that she has died and is now travelling in the afterlife to see her father once again.

2nd Nuffnang cheque! (Richer by S$412.05)

Yes. I got my 2nd Nuffnang cheque last month (too busy to spend the moolah & thus the delay in blogging about it. Nah. Just do my part to the economy by spending more, peeps!). Unlike the previous post about my first Nuffnang cheque, this time I decide to put up the amount without any censorship: S$412.05.


PS. Admittedly, this is for sure not to an attempt to boast as I still (and will always) censor the real name of the recipient of the cheque. Heh.
