Sunshine Sleep



The traile here is for The Science of Sleep,Michel Gondry's upcoming flick,a follow-up to the Oscar-winning Eternal Sunshine of The Spotless Mind ,the poster sure looks uninteresting but the tagline:Close Your Eyes,Open Your Heart makes me wanna see the movie.Again the director plays around with sleep,love and reality,like he did with Jim Carrey & Kate Winslet,toying fearlessly with the ideas of painful loneliness,difficult relationships and how both seem to seamlessly fit each other,before tearing apart into pieces of nothing.


The song playing towards the end of the trailer is Death Cab for Cutie's Your Heart is an Empty Room,which is a great song,anyone interested in more DCFC music i recommend listening to Forbidden Love,I will follow you into the dark & Fake frowns.

Its Gwyneth Paltrow,perfect hair and flawless make-up with a slight intentional smudge for the I Am African campaign-does this inspire you to donate?I guess pics of malnutritioned,abused and dying African children didn't get through and now they're opting for ads designed to look as if they're promoting a brand new eyeliner,lipstick or fashion accesory instead.

Update:A-HA!I knew i wasn't alone in this!click on this link to Gawker-Gwyneth Paltrow is a heartless bitch!

Garfield is believed to be dead.In one particular strip in 1989,Garfield is seen out of his usual cheerful,annoying self and actually dealing with serious issues-in this case,loneliness & death...This one comic strip has Garfield fans worried,with all kinds of theories being made-the storyline is set in the future,where Garfield wakes up to an empty home and says things like ''I don't want to die alone!'' and here's one quote from the same strip:''An imagination is a powerful tool. It can tint memories of the past, shade perceptions of the present, or paint a future so vivid that it can entice...or terrify, all depending on how we conduct ourselves today''...this website goes further,to prove that Garfield is indeed dead,which,i admit,does sound a tad depressing considering Garfield's one of the few comics i grew up with,but i'd be much sadder if Doraemon or the Rugrats died.

Who the hell invited Pussycat Dolls to Malaysia in the first place?!For Malaysian politicians to be roaring left,right and centre right after something takes place (instead of trying to prevent it-things seem to pass by them just like that) is just why the idea of being a politician in Malaysia seems so pathetic and unambitious to me.

Spank yourself hard for being so ignorant if you haven't heard about the recent terror scare in London-and by the time you read that article,the hourly updates would have brought in more info,and on a completely different but somehow related subject,critics and movie analysts are saying this big real-life could be an added advantage for Oliver Stone's upcoming 9/11 flick,which put forwards a conspiracy theory that says everything was staged by the US goverment.

Now for some random hugabugah

-If you have sometime,visit this site:AdMashup,pretty cool how they use ads made for one brand for a completely different product (eg:Honda to Playboy)

-Heidi Klum For Equire (er okla,not so hot),and this unmissable superduperdamndumb clip of Holly Valance doing wackety kungfu shit where she manages to kick three men down while armed only with a bathing towel,then catch her flying bra in time to cover herself.

-Poop candy,anyone?

Well that's it for now,i'll end with a snippet of the Alexander Pope poem from which the idea for Eternal Sunshine of The Spotless Mind is taken from.

How happy is the blameless vestal's lot

The world forgetting, by the world forgot

Eternal sunshine of the spotless mind

Each pray'r accepted, and each wish resign'd

hmm, over the uproar on PCD, msia shdnt wonder why most intl acts are performing in places wif a more tolerant outlook like singapore or bangkok. only the fans will miss out. srsly la, sif they expect orgies to impulsively break out in stadiums? we're not tht immature. sure, raunch culture is misogynist but like most sane ppl, its not like we're exactly indoctrinating it in our lives. gosh...we'll neva be truly 'international' if we cant even accept common perspectives. and underestimating msian attitudes is not helping.

hmm, btw is DCFC mostly -ve issues?

the gwyneth pic so does not make me feel inclined to donate. just watched shakespeare in love coupla nites ago. she was good there.
