Newcomer Norah Jones’ Big Sweep

I once mentioned that Norah
Jones was a promising artist when I first heard her perform during the
Late Show with David Letterman. So it was no surprise that she made a
deserving clean sweep
in all the categories she was nominated for in this year’s Grammy
Awards. As opposed to Avril “whyjagossagassameesamassacomplicated”
Lavigne in which she did an India.Arie like a year ago, i.e. totally shut
out from winning any awards in all the categories she was nominated
for. Heheh! Can’t complain about that. And neither do I want to
complain about the fact that the censor’s proverbial scissors and their
frosted window panes over
women’s cleavages were inconspicuously absent this time around. They
were annoyingly distracting rather than “protecting” I reckon. Perhaps
the censors HAVE been “getting some” lately then. *Shrug*

No (Saying) Sex On TV

Funny how Tim Allen’s dialog on Home Improvement shown over TV3
got bleeped out (okay, it was more like silenced out) for saying “having
sex” to his on-screen wife. Just what is wrong with that? Is it wrong for a
married couple (albeit on-screen) to say it out? Do the censors reckon
that it was too sexually charged that it might arouse the viewers (well,
maybe those censors who haven’t been “getting some” lately might)?
The context of which that piece of dialog was said is as harmless and
typical of any husband and wife conversation that I doubt it would cause
a twitch in anybody’s pants (maybe except those censors who haven’t
been “getting some” lately). Do they reckon it’d be more appropriate if
Tim Allen were to say “bergurau senda” like P. Ramlee does in Madu
Tiga instead of “having sex”? :\

The NAM delegates have arrived in the country for the summit that’s
going to be held over the next couple of days. To the delegates,
welcome to Malaysia. Please make the summit worthwhile for all the
trouble motorists around the Klang Valley have to put up with when you
take on the streets and highways.

Destination End

Oh nobley born
Let the mind be not distracted
Though the road ahead is hard and long
And the journey seems about ending
Oh that which thou art
Let thy gaze be not deflected
Fix thy attention on the goal
And the light that shines so celestial

Onward ever ever on, Destination Eschaton…

Who Wants To Be A Valentine

The most overrated day of the year where Hallmark,
Memory Lane
and florists make an obscene profit out of poor saps on a heightened
state of affection and x-ratedness arousal (to a certain extent on the later part
of the day! :P) is here again. I wish I can feel the difference today as
compared to the other 364 days of the year just like most other people
supposedly do but maybe that’s just me. I’m supposed to be all
lovey-dovey sugary sweet today but ended up being just as horny as
any other day. Bwahahahahahahaaa! Sighhhhhhhhh…

Of Eid, Porcupines and Cactus

A quick one to wish all Muslims out there Eid Adha. Hope y’all fared
better than I do this time around ‘cos I’m seriously not so well at the
moment (extremely bad sore throat that it feels like a porcupine
humping a cactus in my throat). Ayah thought I wasn’t up to it to make
it for Eid prayers this morning so he didn’t even wake me up. Haiyo!
Even worse, Mama’s cooked all the nice ketupat, rendang and curry and
I can’t have ’em ‘cos of my friggin’ sore throat! :(

Let’s Talk About Girls

Girls… they are beautiful
They are nice
They are sensitive

But girls, I can’t understand you because…

If I say you’re pretty, you’ll say you’re not
If I say someone is pretty, you’ll get jealous
If I say you’re weak, you’ll say “You’re wrong!”
If I treat you rough, you’ll scream “I’m a lady”
If I say you can’t cook, you’ll get angry
If you cook… yucks!!!
If I help you, you’ll say I’m wooing
If I don’t, you’ll say I don’t care
If I phone you, you’ll say I’m wasting your time
If I don’t, you’ll say you miss me
If I kiss you, you’ll say I’m taking advantage
If I don’t, you’ll say I’m not romantic
If I remember your birthday, you’ll say it’s nothing
If I don’t, you’ll cry without stopping. And much much more

And lastly, if I say I love you, you never give your answer
If I say I don’t… Better forget it

Girls… I don’t know how to understand you,
But without you,
I don’t know what life will be

I still like you.

When Geeks Hang Out

Had a chance to hang out
with Mel (Spoonfork)
and Yus (Leafbug)
yesterday afternoon at Glo Jeans, KLCC. Babewatching in networking
context has never been more fun! Much props and respect go out to
them l33t dudez! Heh!

Spoonfork has a nice write up
too about the state of our radio stations and listeners. Couldn’t agree
more.

Space Shuttle Columbia Disintegrates During Re-Entry

My thoughts are with the families of those perished in this tragedy.
Columbia was the first space shuttle that was launched into space after
NASA discontinued the Apollo space programme. It is unfortunate that
it also had to be the first to cause loss of lives during orbit or re-entry.
it’s about time they start retiring the shuttle fleet for something new.
The space shuttle, like the Columbia, has been in service for a good
two decades already. It’s really something that was built out of the 70s
and retrofitted as it went along the years. It’s time NASA is given some
proper funding if the space programme were to continue.

And what were they thinking??
I quote: ‘A Bush administration spokesman said the shuttle’s altitude
— over 200,000 feet — made it “highly unlikely” that the shuttle fell
victim to a terrorist act.’ Duh! Do they really need to sensationalize
their war against terrorism propaganda at this time too?

Update: There are also news reports
sensationalizing people gloating over the event as something of a
God’s punishment and deservingly so for having an Israeli on board.
Totally odious, pathetic and downright below contempt, and I mean it
towards BOTH that person they interviewed and the news report itself.
It’s sick.

Goodbye Horse, Hello Goat

The Chinese usher in the lunar year of the goat today. Gong Xi Fa Cai!
May the new year bring good tidings, happiness and prosperity!

Two Weeks And Goodbye 56K (I Hope)

Streamyx
apparently has made its way to Kajang and a reseller came by asking
whether I was interested to sign up. Before he could even break out his
brochures to explain the thing I was already filling out the forms! What
took them so long?? I’ve been waiting for broadband services to reach
here since ages ago! I was on the verge of hypothesizing a conspiracy
by Telekom to delay broadband services to the masses so that they
can still milk money out of poor saps on dial-ups. It really doesn’t
make sense to pay a lot for piss-poor services when cheaper yet better
technology is already out there. I’m sure just about anybody will look
forward to paying only RM111 for faster unlimited access rather than a
total of RM200 (or thereabouts) for slow as molasses access if they use
the Internet as much as I do.
