tentang Fly Me To The Moon (REVISITED)

hey i posted a vid of this guy before haven't i? andrew lawson sang 'fly me to the moon' (in other words) in his xfactor australia audition. he sang brilliantly and i loved his style and singing voice. click here if u wanna watch his audition vid.

so this andrew guy managed to go all the way to the grand final of xfactor australia. pretty cool. there were 3 finalists and each had to sing 4 songs and one of the songs last night was their audition song. so he sang 'fly me to the moon' again, this time with music and a very distracting group of female dancers. i kinda think the dancers we're a little too much. a lot simpler performance (with a lot more brilliance) would have made the song a lot better

but his was not too bad. still pretty fun.. and still adore that song.


so the results will be announced tonight. i did not text my vote because no use my voting if i'm gonna send all 3 finalists a vote lol

but anyhow, good luck to them

tentang Unstable Internet Could Lead to Health Problems

no it is not a scientific fact. but to people like me, having no internet connection is a really bad thing. yeah maybe i'm an internet junkie but when i can get online i can operate properly.

but you know what's worse than not having internet connection? a very unstable internet connection. one that connects, but drops out after 1 minute of use, then i have to disconnect the connection.. wait for it to refresh and then reconnect.
.

.
.
.
after another 1 minute of use, the connection (that seems perfectly fine and connected) dropped again

i has been like this for 3 days now (i assume it started saturday.. but i didn't get to go online that day :P). i was kinda hoping that everything will be fine today but it looks like things isn't showing any signs of improvement. sigh.. i know i can use dialup and be patient. but slow connection.. 5 years ago that might be all right. but  not now.. all sites are too large for dialup. too slow.. and unless time is not at all important to u, then dialup could waste a lot of time.



>_<

bad day lah!

tentang A Cute Dorky Poem

it's a poem in the movie Harold and Kumar Goes to Guantanamo Bay, written by a David Feinberg, apparently not the David B. Feinberg (deceased) that people find when they do a quick wiki search for the author. the author of this wonderful poem is, as claimed by people on the net (via filmchatblog), an advisor at a high school (when the comment was written in 2008-ish.. i assume).

but anyway.. i find the poem really clever and brilliant.. and modern. which i really love.


The Square Root of Three 
by David Feinberg

I fear that I will always be
A lonely number like root three

The three is all that’s good and right,
Why must my three keep out of sight
Beneath the vicious square root sign,
I wish instead I were a nine

For nine could thwart this evil trick,
with just some quick arithmetic

I know I’ll never see the sun, as 1.7321
Such is my reality, a sad irrationality

When hark! What is this I see,
Another square root of a three

Has quietly come waltzing by,
Together now we multiply
To form a number we prefer,
Rejoicing as an integer

We break free from our mortal bonds
With the wave of magic wands

Our square root signs become unglued
Your love for me has been renewed

song : Muse - Knights of Cydonia


ok
muse rocks! XDXD




this is an interesting music video by muse. i love it. a little wacky but the song is awesome so who cares if the video is wacky?

btw to people who does not listen to muse, this is not a new song. and not a new vid. so if u think hey it looks as wacky as that new MCR vid... 'NaNaNa' is after 'Knights of Cydonia' and i dont believe anyone copied anyone

song : Dashboard Confessional - 'Vindicated'

was reading up some entertainment news just now and saw an update on Spiderman4. no i am not looking forward for it.. the 3rd installation ruined it. but the new did remind me of this song i like.

from the movie Spiderman, a song by dashboard confessional called 'vindicated'.




to tell the truth, i still do not really grasp the meaning of that word.

tentang A Real Quick Tip

this post is for friends who needed some help with blogging stuff. i dont know everything but i'll try to help whatever i can. ok i know the post below looks hard and complicated and can be intimidating.. but it is rather simple really



Q1) how to upload header/banner/signature (siggy) and link them to another page
to me the easiest way would be (for blogspot users) to upload the image file in a new post as a picture, publish it, and then use the URL for any future use. here's a step by step guide :

to upload
- make a new entry in ur blog (cerita la a little bit abt it.. like the one i did abt banner) and insert new image
- publish it
when u view the post (in the blog) u can click the image and a it will open the image. copy the URL of that window to use it

to link
- go to 'Edit Post' in ur blog's dashboard and edit the post u just made earlier.
i suggest u copy the whole part from..
<div class="separator"...
until...
</div>
and paste a copy of it below so that u have 2 banners in that post.

- change the URL of the image in this part after <a href="... (highlighted yellow is my banner's URL)
<a href="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_pZP-YR-rkTM/TMriKSuRUxI/AAAAAAAAAl8/q1w7KdsoukM/s1600/kb_banner.gif" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_pZP-YR-rkTM/TMriKSuRUxI/AAAAAAAAAl8/q1w7KdsoukM/s1600/kb_banner.gif" /></a>
to the URL of ur site (mine is http://kusut-blogs.blogspot.com/). this will link the image to ur site (when they click lah).

example:
<a href="http://kusut-blogs.blogspot.com/" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_pZP-YR-rkTM/TMriKSuRUxI/AAAAAAAAAl8/q1w7KdsoukM/s1600/kb_banner.gif" /></a>

if u need to use the banner/header/siggy in a post, u can copy the whole thing again (the edited HTML one this time), and paste into the post u want



if there's any other questions, do ask and i'll update this post with new answers.

tentang Getting Reviewed

was blog hopping via that new 'Mesti Serbu' list on 100penulis.com. i have to say.. there's lots of interesting blogs in the list. i did not visit all of them today but the 25 most recently updated was clicked and visited. had fun ^^

and at more than one of the blogs they made an entry abt this 'program' that i find interesting. it is a get-reviewed thing by blogger Gnesop of Riwayat Hatiku blog. sounds easy enough..
make an entry (advertise the program) - let them know - use the banner
..and done!


easy right? anyone interested should head to his blog and read the full instructions.

but i wonder.. are english language blogs accepted? hmm.. we'll see lah >_<

tentang Our Growing Library

ok maybe not exactly a library. it's a bookshelf. one bookshelf rather. but it is growing rather rapidly this year. i am torn between buying more books (while they're cheaper here than in malaysia) and worrying abt all the packing when we move back home or not buying books and maybe not have a good reading habit when we go back. so... @_@

but anyway this is how it started and the most recent. watch how it has grown in these few years!

2008.. some time after moving to adelaide

2009.. more books! +mags, +albums

2009.. end of the year. moved out to a new place. new wider and slightly bigger shelf

2010.. too many books for one shelf to handle :P

2010.. our raya furniture! bought a 'billy bookcase' to fit all our books.


at present, we still have one book shelf, and additional 20 (ish) more new books :P
btw.. the books are not all mine. most of it are my wife's but they're all shared anyway.

and yes.. i have not read all of them
