Okay, a little side note: the previous post has components (the last quote with ended with 'anyway') which were inspired by Mother Teresa, "Do It Anyway".
People are often unreasonable, irrational, and self-centered. Forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives. Be kind anyway.
If you are successful, you will win some unfaithful friends and some genuine enemies. Succeed anyway.
If you are honest and sincere people may deceive you. Be honest and sincere anyway.
What you spend years creating, others could destroy overnight. Create anyway.
If you find serenity and happiness, some may be jealous. Be happy anyway.
The good you do today, will often be forgotten. Do good anyway.
Give the best you have, and it will never be enough. Give your best anyway.
In the final analysis, it is between you and God. It was never between you and them anyway.
I am so beyond help of daring to twist the golden words of Mother Teresa, huh? Well, I just admit I just have to blog it anyway. Hur hur.

Okay, so what interests me most about this trailer, "Young and Dangerous: Reloaded Official Trailer #1 (2013) - Hong Kong Action Movie HD"? No, not about the violence, but about the last 3 scenes of the trailer which show in the comic style (great artwork, though) the Executive Producer (Wong Jing), Producer / Screenwriter (Manfred Wong), and Director (Daniel Chan).
For some reasons, I'd like to re-watch the previous series of "Young and Dangerous" movies. Heh.
A fantastic "2012 Movie Trailer Mashup" by The Sleepy Skunk. So fantastic that I can't even grab a screenshot out of it. Heh.
But the best part I'd say is about the diligent effort to list not just the movie references of the mashup, but also the 'deconstructing' it with a detailed write-up of what may seem as 'randomized' scenes.
After Earth (originally known as 1000 A.E.) is an upcoming American science-fiction thriller film directed by M. Night Shyamalan, starring real-life father and son Will and Jaden Smith as Cypher and Kitai Raige. (Source: Wikipedia)
The trailer does look promising! Check it out, "After Earth Official Trailer #1 (2013) - Will Smith Movie HD".
The movie poster is somewhat ominous too. I'm referring to its tag line / caption: "1000 years ago we left for a reason". Woohoo! I wonder what the reason is.

Two of them actually, courtesy of STOMP. One is "Mercedes driver holds up entire line of buses by parking at bus stop" and another is "BMW driver hogs shelter during heavy downpour until 6 cars horn and horn at him". The two inconsiderate drivers were, unfortunately, not identified. Only their cars were. In the former incident, it's a Mercedes SJQ5252Z and in the latter it's a BMW SKB8331B.
Yeah, I know many are tempted to find out more about the identity of these 2 inconsiderate drivers. But googling for the car nos did not bring any concrete results, mind you.
Well, except for the well-deserving insults. Heh.
Nothing so far, either, for the second case (not even a well-deserving insult to slap the driver).
Check this out, "The Walking Dead + Dumb Ways to Die Parody - The Walking Dumb". LOL.
email@example.com says "RuneScape - Lawsuit against you for $2,500 (Final notification of case no. ZtPd0CiaH"
What a way to start a brand new year with a scam which very much sounds like a threat. Heh. The email subject line is "RuneScape - Lawsuit against you for $2,500 (Final notification of case no. ZtPd0CiaH)" and sent by "Jagex Ltd", firstname.lastname@example.org. As usual I don't click the link provided in the email. (Well, why should I?! I don't even know what on earth this Jagex is.)

I further googled for 'email@example.com'. So yeah, it is a scam, alright. (And many have received similar 'threatening' emails. Hur hur.)
On a separate note, the email did help Jagex to gain some kind of publicity. It 'persuaded' me to check the official website jagex.com & yeah, the games do look promising. Heh.
