Noise... So much noise.
Malaysians masses are somewhat an expert in this. We like to blow things out of proportions and commonly would have a dramatic reaction to any current or trending issues. We viral the shit about how this artist tweet that this other artist should stop singing, PM's electricity bills, amukan gadis ala Kiki CMD... common things you can see in your facebook feed..
One question, before sharing anything in social media.... one must fulfill one social obligation.. confirm the info you're about to share... or at least dig in for some validity. That's why im sure that there will never be Malaysian as Little finger's agent or Vary's whispering spiders. (yeaaahh i know.. Westeroos is not a real place).
Now back to our little talk about shitting. I just wonder with the looming April Fool's joke GST just around the corner, a lot of people are bitching that the government is making their life hard with the implementation. This would burden the people, not thoughtful, abuse of power..... yada yada yada. if you ask me about it, i'd say why the fuck are you condemning a taxation exercise that would actually stop tax evasion, a transparent taxing exercise and tax exemption for businesses below 200k?
"but GST will raise all the prices.. cost of living will rise... yada yada yada" u might say. Stop! Stop right there!! stop blaming the system but instead... lets put the shit where it belong. So where should all the shit go? All the shits should be with YOU, yeahhh YOU!
You... who owns a bigass company and evaded tax like an expert, loss accounts for submission to LHDN, profitable account for loan and banking. and now these rotten piece of human being are the loudest to protest GST and panicking as they will no longer be able to shit the people in LHDN with the transparent taxation exercise. Yes, the shit should be on YOU, who raise the price of goods with the excuse of "GST maaaa...." without any real knowledge of how GST works and do it just purely to make extra profit. (example, 10% service tax not abolished 6% GST on top).
My only issue with GST is the implementation should come with enforcement to make sure these dumbass excuse of a human being doesn't manipulate the implementation of to benefit their greedy cause.
To stop the rot, we need to know where the rot is. Hello there, you rotten people. So tell me again, where should the shit go?

And here we are again, after years of silence. My fingers are back to paint this blog with the click and clacking of my mechanical keyboard. That familiar sound that i learn to love and hate. The sound of the midnight oil burned in the name of work... or the sound my gaming venture, pwning.
The reason i'm here is not to talk about those sound but instead, to talk about music. The sheer magnitude that music have in my life. I have always lived my life with a background music running in my head. It is like I am living a scene of a movie. For those who might know me well enough or spent enough time around me, they would notice that i would occasionally hum a tune, whistle or sing out-loud without giving a damn about the surrounding because at that moment... that's the 'background music' of my 'movie'.
Sometimes, instead of humming the background music.. i would continue the last word of what a person say with a song a la pitch perfect battle minus the acapella twist. Example:-
"jangan tinggal aku weih!!"
and i'll continue with "oh adik... ohhh juwita. kanda sedang rindu. Padamu yang manis jelita"
That's how music is king in almost every aspect of my life. The most common one would be 'the song' for that 'specific moment'. Like whenever i hear any Linkin Park Meteora songs, i would instantly be tranported back to my hostel life in UiTM. To the extend that i could still smell my worn out jeans, all the maggi mee, all the crazy/idiotic stunts down to midnight fart-etition (fart competition).
Most of the 'strong' musics i used to listen and jam to are very meaningful for me. hell, some are still in my playlist even as a father of two. I still need them, if not... the only music i would be listening would be Let it go and a whole bunch of other Frozen/Disney/Nickelodeon musical shows. The remedy of excessive 'Let it go' syndrome, common to fathers with daughters of age would be....
All the lols... better than the original let it go being played over and over and over and over again.
"Daddy, nak lagu yaya... nak let it go"
And here we go again... over and over and over...
The music that i love so much... the people... the bands.. a lot have changed in the music industry. Lately i've been digging and updating myself with all the music i used to listen to and my heroes singing the songs... most of them have settled down in a more quiet life.
Alexisonfire.. officially ended back in 2011 and did a farewell tour. Too bad Malaysia/Singapore wasn't in their touring list. They were the heroes of my youth.
Underoath... officially ended back in 2012 and they did drop by Malaysia for a farewell. hell, it was among the greatest night for me. nothing compares to the sheer presence of a band, the singalong and the mosh.
As i lay dying... didn't disband. instead, their frontman was trialed and convicted with the the attempt on his wife's life via hired guns and currently chilling in the state prison.
Emery is currently on hiatus and did a quick 10 years anniversary concert last year. without their bassist/vocals.. emery's sound is kinda lost in all their effort.
The only band of my youth... that is still active and delivering their music would be Funeral for a Friend. In my opinion the best band that ever walked the earth as their music fit my ears like a glove (errr... metaphorically... u dont wear gloves on your ears... dude... come on..!). I could still remember the first time i heard their song... Rookie of the Year in a Kerrang! compilation. It was superb. And later, as i was browsing some CDs in OU... there it was... FFAF's full album... Casually Dressed & Deep in Conversations. THE CD of my youth.
It is good to hear their new songs.. and please.. FFAF, come to Malaysia. =D (fanboy... yeah yeaaahh... i know..)
"I'm cutting the cord;
I'm cutting the cord that keeps me.
I'm cutting the ties;
I'm cutting the ties that
bind my feet to the ground, my head in the sand.
And when did the doors start to
close and why did we just turn away?
In favour of some passing
trend that lets us down everyday.
And do we believe in the words?
Do we believe in the words that
we say when we're screaming in
each other's faces just like the good old days?"
-Nails by FFAF
In a way... I'm not saying that the current crop of musicians, whichever scene you may want to refer to, lacks the quality. Im just saying.. those days.. those kind of music were MY kinda music. The same as your dads would say that no bands could ever be better than the Beatles. And here I am... listening to MY music using a headphone as my daughter is running around inside my room singing Let it go.

wanna know something sad? nearing the GE, everybody will turn one eye blind to the group they like, and start searching for anything for the party they dont like. small things become magnified.. nothing is based on facts. and with facebook/internet, the meaning of FACT is lost with it.
for me, i choose with my BOTH eyes open. look at the reality. one side, you're choosing PAS/DAP/PKR rojak, not just one of it... and the other side would be the UMNO/MCA/MIC bullshit. which one would be the government that you want?
sex scandal? it's just one guy... forged sex video, it's just another political assassination. picture of a guy wearing one party, doing something wrong... just about anybody can print a shirt with whatever logo and do whatever shit. post videos of people being beaten... it's JUST a video of people being beaten, ignore the sob story that'd follow as just about anybody can type a whole sob paragraph about something may be true or might just be fiction. all these political propaganda can be true... but it can also be created to deceive you. swallow this, both sides are doing it, and you will never know the truth. and screaming/shouting about it or sharing in facebook doesnt spell J.U.S.T.I.C.E. as you dont know for a fact as well. people come up with 'hidden' side of history. well i'm quite sure just about anybody can conjure up a 'hidden' history out of thin air. so? what now? use your brain laaaaaa....
my point is, ignore the bullshits and think about the real issue. think about what kind of government you wanna live in. leave the petty bickering to the power hungry and the illiterate.

Vote kanan... kau kafir. vote kiri... pun kau kafir! encik-encik politicians skarang ni dah lebih kurang dengan budak2 darjah satu. "kau babi".. "kau laaa lagi babi". "mana ada... kau laaa betul2 babi".
kenapa laaaaa budak-budak ni yg tgh berebut nak jadi 'PEMIMPIN' negara aku?
percaya atau tidak
mereka semua SAMA!
yang di atas... sedap-sedap sukahati... yang kat bawah... komplen itu ini.
bila si POLAN kat bawah naik atas... dia pulak sedap-sedap bikin sukahati dia.
demokrasi dan pilihanraya adalah sukan memilih lahanat mana yang kau rela tahan and you can cope with. kau jahanam tapi tak kaco hidup aku directly... gua no hal. tapi kalo ko terpekik terlolong... macam orang tak bertamadun depan hidung aku. ko bleh blah!

Memang darah aku Hijau Kuning. tapi seperti yang mourinho akui, aku pun ada 'Blue Rib' macam dia. looking forward to the finals nanti. bagi mereka yang mengkritik gameplan chelsea ituhari, mereka patut duduk dan reflect on this quote
“If your enemy is secure at all points, be prepared for him. If he is in superior strength, evade him. If your opponent is temperamental, seek to irritate him. Pretend to be weak, that he may grow arrogant. If he is taking his ease, give him no rest. If his forces are united, separate them. If sovereign and subject are in accord, put division between them. Attack him where he is unprepared, appear where you are not expected.” Sun Tzu
quote ni dipetik dari Art of War, buku strategy perang yang diagung-agung kan. apa yang aku dapat perhatikan.. chelsea berjaya menghidupkan hampir setiap baris quote ini... bak kata Jupp Heynecks, lawan yang bakal kami temui di final nanti, it was a tactical masterpiece.
sementara menunggu perlawanan akhir.. aku nak share ngan korang my new favorite chelsea 'player'.

Well hello there, good morning, good evening, good afternoon. Wherever you are, whatever you're doing. Could we stop a moment and look back to everything that we said or did. I am quite sure that we have, at one point, contradicted ourselves. it's normal.. it's to human to contradict ourselves. and the fact is, we're always changing, by learning or adapting. we do. we are not the same person we were 10 minutes ago. but if that statement were to be held as true, then every criminal in the prison would have a case for their release. and the fact is, we are what we do(did?).
wait a minute...
i just contradicted myself. =D
that, too, revealed another side of humanity. you don't know what 'that' is? 'that' is the fact that humans are oxymoronically blessed with our brain. like how the electricity is blessed with both positive and negative charges (with positives and negatives effects). why am i saying that we are all oxymorons? because we're all a vessel of contradicting ideas, ideologies even to our own ideas and ideologies. why do we need it? because deep down in our gene, we know that with conflict, we will become more critical. and with that comes improvements. so the next moment you contradicted yourself, sit down and think.. was it for the better? if so, being 'oxymorons' is not as bad as it sounded.
if you contradicted yourself with trivial things..
you're not a positive 'oxymoronic' vessel... you're just a moron
