Rainy Blues and Tunes

It's raining. Uh-huh. And you know what that means? It means I'm sitting at home, bored out of my mind but I refuse to step out in this weather. Just not a running-in-the-rain-crazy person. I just found out a friend, let's call her F, is going to Germany! It sounds like good news for her and I wish her all the best. Now that my fourth semester is done and over, I have to start shifting my focus onto more important matters. Like my final year project, my internship report, new lecture schedules, the lecturers themselves and other things I don't feel like going into much deeper for fear I may disappear into the abyss of never-ending responsibilities. Bummer.



Anyhoo, today I'm going to blog about a band that isn't exactly new but still fairly new, upcoming Malaysian rockstars, BUNKFACE! They've got a lot of haters, probably disgruntled university mates but what's wrong with acting like a rockstar? As the saying goes, if you want to be treated like a qu…

FREEDOM

Internship's over! It's been over for almost a week but I'm such a slob and a procrastinator so I rarely update. Oh dear, June's almost over and all I've got to show for it is one slimy post? I better remedy that immediately. Guess what? I went to the cinema yesterday and watched...



Went with Sara-dahling and her friend Kimberly, who's pretty awesome by the way. Transformers 2 was a lot less dull than the 1st movie. I could tell this sort of movie wasn't going to test my brain cells so I just relaxed and enjoyed the ride. The characters were seriously bordering on the absurd with a crazy fratboy blogger manic, a secret-spy-wannabe/butcher, a horny midget decepticon, an old rusty decepticon in need of a crutch, the delicious Josh Duhamel soldier-boy, this movie doesn't run out of gags and action. Thankfully, it was a lot easier on the ears than, say, Terminator Salvation which nearly blew out my eardrums. Anyway, watch it if you're looking for pure e…

Across The Universe (2007)

I recently caught this movie on my local cable which was pretty awesome. The only reason I didn't catch it previously is because I heard it was weird and I wasn't a Beatles fan. But since then I've discovered the joys of listening to old music or more accurately remade songs... Anyways, the movie was on the whole charming with the awesome vocal talents of Jim Sturgess, Evan Rachel Wood, Joe Anderson, Dana Fuchs, T.V. Carpio and the spectacular back-up singers in the cast. My sisters and I love Joe Anderson best as Maxwell! Cute and has a rougher voice than Jim Sturgess (who knew he could sing). Watch him in this video as he sing one of my favorite scenes in Across the Universe!



I love this movie, though the whole LSD haze in the middle of the movie threatened to make me lose my sanity but thankfully the movie improved later on. Now I'm hopelessly in love with Joe Anderson's version of Hey Jude. I'll try to get a copy of this movie somewhere! Most definitely!
