Am almost swooning over Finnish band H.I.M.'s cover of Chris Isaak's "Wicked Game". I'm quite sure everyone has heard the original one before; hear a very short sample of it here (Track #5).

Listen to how H.I.M. sounds like (now) at their official site. It plays three songs from their latest album "Dark Light": "Wings of a Butterfly", "Under the Rose", and "Crimson Door".

I now have "Wicked Game" on repeat mode. God, the guitar and that voice is killing me.

And oh...

A Lil Pulp Fiction + A Lil Banksy

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

Quentin Tarantino's Pulp Fiction (1994) is like reeeaaally good. I loved his three volumes of Kill Bill, and I also enjoyed his True Romance, so I watched this feeling fairly sure that I'd like it. And yep, I did. The wicked sense of humour, the way the movie was shot, the story itself, how the story was told, and of course—the violence. Lovely.

Don't take my word for it; watch it, if you haven't already. For me, it was long, long overdue.

While googling for that classic picture of Uma Thurman above, I came across this:

It's done by Britain artist Banksy. Here's a screenshot of the scene from Pulp Fiction that inspired that:

Hehe, check out how Banksy exhibited his work (by putting it up himself) at several museums in New York. See his interview with Reuters on it here.

Incidentally, I only got to know of him a few days ago while playing KoL. Someone had written his name on this "wall of graffiti" in-game.

If you want to see more of his works (besides what's on his web site), this seems like a good place to check out too.

Recently, I've been playing Kingdom of Loathing—an online RPG parody.

Wikipedia introduces it as such: The Kingdom of Loathing (KoL) is a humorous and satirical freeware MMORPG created by Asymmetric Publications (Zack "Jick" Johnson and Josh "Mr. Skullhead" Nite). It is notable for the usage of simple stick figure graphics and surreal gameplay.

I can't quite describe KoL humour, so here's a few examples.

I'm amused by the fact that there are people who will download e-books on these topics to read. No, wait, I shouldn't be. Maybe downloading e-books is preferred as it provides the anonymity similar to ordering sex toys off the internet and having them delivered to your house in discreet packagings.

On a sidenote, sex books seem to be very popular as the condition/treatment of the books in the relevant section at the local Borders bookshop would seem to imply. Now, Borders normally does not shrink-wrap their books (mostly only magazines are), but for this particular genre of books, surprise! They are all nicely wrapped up with the exception of one copy per book that has the sticker on it saying "Customer's Copy: For Browsing". And erm, those are some very well-thumbed copies.

I was alerted to this one by Kupfel a few days ago.

P/S Would really love to get my hands on a copy of this song -- it's a short remix of the Season II theme song of The L Word. It's one of those songs that get played in the background and doesn't make it to the soundtrack (prolly because of its length as well, only about a minute or so).



1That screenie's of The Pirate Bay, "the world's largest BitTorrent tracker", according to themselves. They're pretty good.

Mom, Please, Shhh...

Oh god, sometimes it can be so frustrating to talk to my mom. I can have great hour-long talks with her, but more often than not, she makes my temper flare in a way that it doesn't with friends. And when I lose my temper, I say the meanest and most spiteful things that are meant to cut and to hurt. No, I am not nice when I get pissed off. But then again, it's not like I want to have a rep for being a nice person.

Sometimes I wonder... if I'd eventually end up regretting that my very last conversation with her ended on a bad note. Would that count as karma?

Other Weird Shit Stuff To Smoke?

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

Talk about substituting one addiction for another. The Herbal Smoke Shop also sells Cannibus Candy Chronic Pops. ._.

The product description reads as follows: "100% Legal REAL Cannibus POPS! These are AMAZING! The THC is removed so they are 100% legal, but you will Swear you are eating the forbidden fruit! These are GOURMET QUALITY and are one of our returning customer's favorite products. We offer 3 package sizes below for those of you who LOVE THESE CHRONIC POPS! Not for sale to minors. Contains no marijuana."

And uh, no, I wasn't trying to quit smoking or something. I was looking at Djarum Black clove cigarettes when I came across those weird products.

Linky Links

Via Kupfel:
Make sure to click on "Enlarge Image". It's... weird.
Now, that is one service I will not be subscribing to (even if I could), for more reasons than one.
And you know what happens next? Yes, they do stupid, hilarious things that will thankfully live on through the Internet to entertain people for ages to come.

Speaking of stupid, hilarious things, here's one stupid thing that was made hilarious by C. Monks with his blog entry on it. In one of the comments, someone mentioned this web site called Sex in Christ: Sexuality According to the Word of God. It's worth a look. They have a very uh... different take on what the Good Book has to say on sex. (Chun, that is a totally text-based site, so yes, it's safe to view! XD)
Moving on from words, words, words to images, here's a few funny commercials that are winners of the D&AD 2005 awards:
And oh, check out these animations of Sex and the City.

Got Myself an 8" The Other Day...

And boy, was it goooood or what? *wistful sigh*

._.

Cake, I mean. Tiramisu, to be precise. From Tiramisutra, that is.

I had ordered this one, and I loved it from the very first whiff of it (when it was still in the box) to the very first lick (off the plastic knife) and to the very last moist mouthful.

God, I almost spaced out there recalling the taste and smell of it. I like it so much that I've been considering making it a monthly must-order. (Monthly and not more regularly only out of consideration for the wallet. T_T)

I got to know of Tiramisutra via Popagandhi, and I ordered because of those evil, evil people who gave favourable comments on that same page. But those evil, evil people sure know their tiramisu well.

I don't know which one I should order next. I want to try the other flavours but I also badly miss the original one. Yes, already! I want more!

*deleted a sentence containing the words 8", mouth fridge, in, want, I, another*

I hate it when...

  • People use "loose" instead of "lose", or "lose" when they really mean "loose". (I have even seen "You looser!")

  • Some Singaporeans assume that everyone else will understand their unique brand of netspeak (mostly combined with Singlish too), even on international forums.

  • People confuse "principal" with "principle". (I just googled "school" and "principle", and oh wow... This seems to be a far more common mistake than I thought.)

  • People confuse "than" with "then".
But what I hate most of all is when people use "wad" in place of "what" (and*gasp* even "wadeva/wadever"). >_>

From dictionary.com,
wad
n.
  1. A small mass of soft material, often folded or rolled, used for padding, stuffing, or packing.
  2. A compressed ball, roll, or lump, as of tobacco or chewing gum.
    1. A plug, as of cloth or paper, used to retain a powder charge in a muzzleloading gun or cannon.
    2. A disk, as of felt or paper, used to keep the powder and shot in place in a shotgun cartridge.
  3. Informal. A large amount: a wad of troubles.
  4. Informal.
    1. A sizable roll of paper money.
    2. A considerable amount of money.
