Call the Man.

Close the door
Shut the world away
All the fight's gone from this wounded heart

Across the floor
Dreams and shadows play
Like windblown refugees

Call the Man who deals in love beyond repair
He can heal the world of hearts in need of care
Shine a light ahead when the next step isn't clear
Call the Man, He's needed here


Call the Man who deals in once upon a time
Maybe He can mend this broken heart of mine
Shine a light ahead now the future isn't clear
Call the Man, He's needed here.

Borrowed from Celine Dion
Falling into you

Belated Easter Greetings.

When I survey the wondrous cross
On which the Prince of glory died,
My richest gain I count but loss,
And pour contempt on all my pride.

Forbid it, Lord, that I should boast,
Save in the death of Christ my God!
All the vain things that charm me most,
I sacrifice them to His blood.

See from His head, His hands, His feet,
Sorrow and love flow mingled down!
Did e’er such love and sorrow meet,
Or thorns compose so rich a crown?

His dying crimson, like a robe,
Spreads o’er His body on the tree;
Then I am dead to all the globe,
And all the globe is dead to me.

Were the whole realm of nature mine,
That were a present far too small;
Love so amazing, so divine,
Demands my soul, my life, my all.

Happy belated Easter to all...

Armed with an Itchy trigger finger.

Considering that empty vessels has become a pseudo tag board for the Mohaa team, I think I should dedicate a post per week so that we can confine all Mohaa related topics in one post. OK, as far as I know, the session should be on tomorrow after dinner. (25th March) Unfortunately Shrike, G-man and I will be at a pre-arranged dinner with families in attendance so unless that ends early, I think we'll be starting about 10 or so. (Hopefully earlier)
I won't be able to stay for too long as I have tuition (ugh...) the next day at 11am.

Anyways, that's the sitch. So who'll be in attendance?

Jean Wanker Movie Revieder

Talk about irritating.
Anyone listen to Class 95? Anyone listening to movie reviews with Jean "I need a new editor that actually knows movie titles" Danker?

Team Police: World America??? that makes sense to anyone with ears. Worst part is the fact that the ad's been running for more than a day (I've heard it both Saturday and Sunday...) and no one on the radio's picked it up.


Pulp Jedi


Screencap from the Episode III trailer. The one scene that's reigniting my hopes for the saga...Then again, disappointed before, probably disappointed again. Currently waiting for May 19th to put me out of my misery.

"Are you threatening me, Master Jedi?"

Notebook: Purrrty.
Setting up wireless network connection? : Downright Fugly.

After 4 days of false starts and false hopes, the wireless network is finally online...for more than 20 minutes...Arrrgh! Geez. This after much fiddling, pleading, begging, cajoling and much tech support harrasin'. Stupid MAC address filtering...O well...the problem was solved finally when I managed to get the network secure and disabled MAC address filtering. It seems that all things Mac are really a bane to me.

Well...I am finally online and ready to blog from the living room.

Update number 1:
The new teaching ads
"How big is your classroom?"
  • Sounds like bad sexual innuendo that students who sleep with their teachers could whisper surreptitiously to the object of their desire. (Both sexes apply)
  • It shows people climbing, ending with a shot of what I assume to be Everest...(Shyeah, like a Singaporean will ever scale Everest)
  • You could juxtapose the headlines of teacher-student "affection" against the tagline: Nurture.
Update number 2:
People who use their mobile phones in the cinema right after the ads that tell them to turn their phones to silent come on.

Caught In Good Company (which by the way is a great show...) on Monday night and right when the film company logo flashed on the screen, some idiot girl right behind us gets a call. She's not a total idiot, her phone was turned to silent...I didn't hear the ring. But here's the thing, right at the point in time, with the opening credits rolling, she begins to hold a bloody conversation with her caller! It goes on for another 2 minutes before she whispers, "I'm in a movie." which I thought would end the conversation but she continues on talking! I'm pretty amazed at this point in time and up to the point that she stops talking, I'm plotting out a new "shoot on sight (or hearing as may be the case)" campaign for people who talk on their mobile phones in the cinema.
It doesn't stop there however.
She gets another call and starts a whole new conversation mid movie.
At this point in time, I feel like reaching over and beating her to death with her mobile phone. No loss really...does not have the common sense of a gnat. Can die also won't really matter.

Geez, one would have thought that growing to that age (about 20 plus) would have instilled some sense of manners or thoughtfulness...Guess this is why Singaporeans really can't stand each other and end up marrying expats or Vietnamese brides.

Update Number 3:
This is someone who's well on his way to buying a carving knife and becoming the next Adrian Lim...Or Buffalo Bill for that matter. About 11 cans short of a six pack.

I just found this blog off Chick's comments section. Very disturbed individual. I mean really. If you get down to the bit where he talks about women as whores, you realise that this person is about a half step shy of buying his own collection of torture equipment and going on a rampage. OK ladies and gentlemen, you've heard it here first...this could be Singapore's next big serial killer.

And I'm done. For now. I apologise for the tardiness of the update and the underdeveloped nature of the pieces but it's been a while and with my network woes...It's just not been very pretty. Anyway, we have returned to our regular scheduled programming.

This is me, Unwired.

I am blogging from the living room. Well...actually, I am blogging while lying beside the sewing machine (on the floor) and blogging from my spanking new Acer Travelmate 8102wLCI. Before we get into the "why Acer?" questions, I will answer: 128mb ATI Radeon x700. Other than that? DDR2 SDRAM. 1.73mhz FSB and a whole lot of kick@$$ on a Sonoma platform.
Plus it works very well with the spanking new wireless connection (after some initial hiccups that involved the realigning of all my cables under my table. :)

For all the others who are techie illeterate: Notebook purrrrty. working off tuitions to pay it back.

By the way, for all the students reading my blog...this is what I have to do to bring IT lessons into my class...*igh. StupidlowbudgetITfundinschool...bah!

And one would have thought that this would mean that I would have SO much less to carry to Terz's for LAN parties...unfortunately, with the addition of one more player (shout out to G-man) I still have to bring my rig. (which I have affectionately named "Boxer") I think that this pretty thing should be called "Clover" then...

Crickets chirping...

I'm actually in school earlier than usual. It's amazing...but during my walk over (pre-7am) I realised how much smog there is in the air. It's horrible and it chokes us...horrible smogses. And I thought that the smog problem was going to be more bearable earlier in the morning. Apparently it's worse because parents are more inclined to send their kiddies to school earlier in the morning, contributing to the smog problem. The road leading up to **** was horribly congested already at 6:55am.
Anyway, speaking of smog, someone's finished their last pack of smokes and is going clean...good luck!
Anyway, bell's gone so I'm off.

The comic god blogs...

There are quite a number of celebrities out there with blogs but this, I was quite surprised with. Jim Lee...Penciller extraordanaire...
