The video that made me fall in love. Every time i watch this video, pink bubbles blowing up inside me. Like i'm a glass filled with pink soda. This was the reason i google-d up longboarding and without a second thought, ordered a complete board from a friend vacationing in Bali, back in January.
Maybe one day i'll have a video of my own. Currently, i'm still a noob. Heh.
Directed by Michel Gondry. Originally written for Bertolucci's movie which was later withdrawn.
"Because I wanted the lyrics to be so epic, I got my friend Sjón - who's a poet in Iceland - to write them. We sat together at the kitchen table and drank a lot of red wine and I told him the whole story for hours and days and he wrote the words from that story." - Bjork
I'm not really a bookworm but i like reading whenever i feel like it. To tell you the truth i have never tried Murakami (somebody should pester me about it). I like fictions and sometimes biographies. Hmm..i think i kinda dig historical stuff too. But not sci-fi, please. English literatures are the best :) Sometimes it's embarrassing that i don't really know most famous authors but what the heck, i should just stick to what i like rather than read what others like.
Last Sunday, i had 2 hours to spare while my sister was having her usual facial treatment (you can't fly if you have skin breakout) so i wander about in Wangsa Maju, got lost and managed to get to Wangsa Walk (neighbourhood mall) and i was so happy when i found Popular bookstore. So i walked around the shop, not knowing which section i should check out and then i came across the bestsellers rack. And i saw Room.
Written by Emma Donoghue, Room tells the story about a mother and son's experience staying locked up in a room for seven years. The interesting part is that the story is from Jack's point of view. Donoghue managed to create that naive way of thinking that you can totally believe that's how a 5-year old would think (or maybe i'm just that easy to manipulate).
So i was reading 'Green is the New Black' by Tamsin Blanchard and came across the part telling you how to look chic on bikes. Freitag started in 1993 by graphic designer brothers from Zurich, Markus & Daniel Freitag. The cool thing about theirs bags is that they're made of tarpaulin. Very eco, aye? This Fake Snake edition totally awed me.
Now i feel like going to the company i used to work with and get those tarpaulin they used as backdrops for events to do my own bag :D heh.
it's the new year & typical of us to be feeling new about everything. then i saw Zam's tweet about the Make Something 365 project & i remembered he did that back in 2008. since i'm not to sure about my own passion (too many interesting stuff i love!) so i've decided to work on this Make Something 365 project. after raking my brains on the theme, i finally chose 'Doodles'. sorry, i can't really draw but i can doodle (like, who doesn't??? -_-"). i know i'm already 3 days late, but that's not stopping me. you people should join this interesting project too. something to share, something to brush up on, something that can test your credibility on commitments. really, it's THAT big. so here's my post for 1st, 2nd and 3rd January :)
1st Jan 2011 - some sort of fireworks in my heart.
2nd Jan 2011 - astonishment.
3rd Jan 2011 - to whom it may concern, you can kiss my foot.
actually, i have something more that i wanna add for this project. an idea but i don't know if i can manage it. doodling to a song title/song lines. what do you think?
