The Things I Love About You… Youtube that is!

I have taken to Youtube recently. It seemed inevitable that i would be smitten by such and i am guilty as charged. I received a link from my chums telling me to check out this American Idol audition that showcased the young and lovely “Paris Bennett”. Ok, i admit, the friend sent out the email like this: “Hey, check out Paris. Real good stuff. You know you’ll want more.” Now before dirty thoughts start creeping in, i have always been interested in Paris, the city, not Paris Hilton. Yeah right!

Anyway, back to the post, after watching the video clip, i decided to just look around and lo and behold, i found plenty of interesting videos that made me forget the time and i just clicked and clicked til my mouse button came unhinged. Unhinged? Yeap, apparently my mouse has hinges.
So there i was happily surfing away looking at parodies of Sopranos, V for Vendetta trailers and even a how to build your linux box video. I would say that i came out of it wiser for the experience, but now i have a problem. I’m addicted to it!

Oh, btw, i did not see any Paris Hilton clips much to my chargrin!

I copy you!

What is the price of a photograph?
To what extremes would you go to earn, get this, 50 whopping ringgit?

Apparently, one of our neighbours up north decided that it was a big deal and proceeded to take a pic which first appeared on ‘celebrity blog’, Kennysia.com. By removing the water marks and all, Ms Vivien “i will plunder from Kennysia to win RM50″ Chew won herself the cash prize from The Star

Maybe the editors felt that the piece of watermark removal job is quite well done and proceeded to acknowledge her “talent”. After all, in a society bereft of creativity and teeming with intellectual property thieves, what better way to put yourself in the shop window than this? Plus, RM50 would probably buy you lots of wanton noodles there. ( Uncle, i want ketchup hor? )

Well, Kenny, you should just go and badger the Editor of The Star for your moolah when you are over in KL for the KL Marathon

Let Sleeping Dogs Lie

It seems that some of the public in Singapore has a personal vendetta against the much maligned victim in the recent phone-video episode. “Tammy” has quite rightly sought the authorities in stopping the further distribution of the video clip.

My take on this is this: Though she might have been much too young to appreciate the seriousness of pre-marital sex and all, but there are many who have gone on this path and i do not see them being chastised for what the public notion deems to be wrong. Its natural human nature to view others through rose-colored glasses, but the spiteful nature of whoever that mass-mailed the video is downright despicable.

I think in the events after the whole issue has been blown up, only serves to tell “Tammy” one thing; though the actions are not right in its sense, but you have the support of the people who truly condemn such thoughtless acts such as distribution of a stolen video clip.

I have an inkling that this whole matter might serve to make “Tammy” a more sensible person in the years to come and she would simply look back at this mis-step and view it as a lesson learnt.

Greed of M$

Seems like good ol’ Billy decided to charge for a new Microsoft Windows license if you decide to change your motherboard. Apparently, thats the “one base component “left standing” that would still define that original PC.” So change your motherboard, you will be considered having a new PC. Thus the extra charges for a new license.

So to the many hobbyists that build PCs either for a living or leisure, you are now likely to think twice, or else switch to Linux.

For me, its Apple for my next desktop, since now they have the Intel chips

Second Wind

It seems like a long time ago since the first post.

Since the days of blogspot, when Visual Grammar was born.

Initially a concept inspired by a pal, it has come some way.

Through the period of uncertainty, it cursed me with a sting which sent my life spiralling. My life was really in a shambles then, and i had to suffer the ignomity of suffering in silence.

It was only through grace that i managed to salvage my relationship with Annette and move from strength to strength. The old adage of only cherishing something once you have lost it is so true. I can only say, “Thank you, Dear”

Soccer has come to a standstill, the fellow teammates in arms long gone in pursuit of their dreams. I can only hope of seeking solace with the brothers in arms literally. Those that have been honoured as among the best men in the country. Those that can be relied on, not to shirk their responsibility. ( Yeah right! Go Eagles Go! )

Having said that, it sure is going to be an interesting year with plenty to look forward to and i hope to be able to document the more eventful stuff on a regular basis.
