I would like to close my blog. It's been a whole year I started to blog my day. I never been able to stay in 1 blog for a year before, what a n achievement haha. But it's kinda sad, which i will not elaborate it here.
The post between Nov 2005 - Oct 2006 which i found really interesting 4 me to be read next time:
21 years old this week (24 October), a young superstar Wayne Rooney just gave himself a birthday present . It was a hattrick to The Wanderers' goal. It was also an straight and clear answer to media doubt regarding to his unstable performance since World Cup 2006. And I agree wif Mr.Fergie..it was a World Cup hangover. But let's move on..here is the Wonderkid that we know. The Wonderkid who scored a fabulous goal to Arsenal David Seaman's goal. Now, he is back on track, signed by his hattrick.
Wayne Mark Rooney, born 24 October 1985 in Liverpool. Unlike most people who put Liverpool FC as their boyhood team, Rooney's loyalty remain to Everton FC - Liverpool rival. Joined Everton FC and live up his name by being the youngest player who score a goal in Premiership (16 years and 360 days). In 2004, he transfered to Manchester United and continue his magnificent contribution both in club and International team. He suffered a metatarsal injury few weeks before World Cup 2006 began, which create his own set-back. (Wikipedia - Wayne Rooney). Until this very day.
Why is he so special? For me simply because he always kick any ball with passion and heart. He has no physical advantages with big build (for an athelete..) and average heights. But be sure that he will run and kick until the final whistle blown. His upperbody balance and skilled control put him as one of the strongest striker I ever know. Complete striker, I may say...he can score, he can create opportunity for his teammates and good defense. But sometimes his aggression don't always in his favor. Like any youngsters, he has quite bad-temper, so red card is quite familiar with him. Or maybe he has Roy Keane or Eric Cantona as his role models, I don't know. One more thing, his style of defense remind me to Gennaro Gatusso, who I admire in defensive football.
Run and tell all of the angels This could take all night Think I need a devil to help me get things right Hook me up a new revolution Cause this one is a lie We sat around laughing and watched the last one die
And I'm looking to the sky to save me Looking for a sign of life Looking for something to help me burn out bright
I'm looking for a complication Looking cause I'm tired of lying Make my way back home when I learn to fly
I think I'm done nursing the patience It couldn’t wait one night I'd give it all away if you give me one last try We'll live happily ever trapped if you just save my life Run and tell the angels that everything is alright...
I'm looking to the sky to save me Looking for a sign of life Looking for something to help me burn out bright
I'm looking for a complication Looking cause I'm tired of trying Make my way back home when I learn to fly Make my way back home when I learn to
Fly along with me, I can't quite make it alone Try to make this life my own
Fly along with me, I can't quite make it alone Try to make this life my own
I'm looking to the sky to save me Looking for a sign of life (sign of life) Looking for something to help me burn out bright
I'm looking for a complication Looking cause I'm tired of trying (tired of trying) Make my way back home when I learn to
And I'm looking to the sky to save me Looking for a sign of life (sign of life) Looking for something to help me burn out bright
I'm looking for a complication Looking cause I'm tired of trying Make my way back home when I learn to fly Make my way back home when I learn to fly Make my way back home when I learn to… (Learn to, learn to, learn, to learn to…)
Almost make a same mistake as i did. But I remember that I'm in a good hand.
The trip to Genting yesterday was quite fun and I did learn somethin. Everything around is not always what it seems to be. I learned that a good friend is a friend who always remind you, even they don't intend to do so. It's never to late for me actually, coz I always reserve second thought.
It.s 3.48 in the morning and tomorrow trip to Genting forbid me to sleep. Why? Coz it will be almost impossible for me to get up at 6.00 o'clock. Yea...2 hours to sleep? give me a break. So I torched myself and keep my eyes open till 6. What would I do now?
First of all, Selamat Hari Raya buat semua yang merayakan dan mohon maaf lahir batin. Sayang sekali gw ga bisa pulang karna ada exam. Hiks...mana keluarga besar mo ngumpul di Jakarta semua lg dan gw disini bagaikan anak bawang. I don't do the teaching very well in my life, but I do enjoy the family gathering and every year since I study here...I never be able to go back and do that. It's all because EXAM!!!
Selamat Hari Raya dan semoga amal ibadah diterima dengan baik di mata-Nya.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Last few weeks, Supernova struggled hard for her problem. Apparently, there was a problem wif my NVidia Card (Video Card). I tried everythin to heal and put her to the best performance. From re-install the driver to sent email to Mozilla...I thought it has somethin to do wif my browser. None of the effort I did good enough to repair my computer. Supernova kept auto-off every time I opened WMP. Until yesterday...
I opened http://www.yogyafree.net to get some info about disk cleaner. Accidentally, my eyes stucked on the online magazine they published few months ago. It's about overclocking. I don't know what overclocking is, but it said somethin about enhancing the Video Card performance, especially NVidia card, and mine is NVidia Gforce FX 5200. Bingo!!! I've been loking for this kind of shit forever.
The software called RivaTuner, can be downloaded here. I can't give too much explanation, coz it's already there at Mr.Google World. After overclocking, my Video Card is better than ever. No more shitty things happened.
One more information that I grabbed from yogyafree.net was TuneUp Utitlities 2006. It's best for any computer which barely taken care. Such as: messed up fragment, shattered registry key, or too many startup on WinXP. I used Windows Advance Care once, but it's nothin compare to this one.
- Enhance performance of the computer - fasten/ at least cleaned up the internet connection - Recover/ back-up files - Delete any data that cluttering in ur computer (unfinished un-intallation)
It is only took a week for Mozilla to finalize Firefox 2.0 after the release of Firefox RC 3 last week. In my computer now, I have IE7, Firefox 2.0 and Opera 9.0. Guess wat? I found Firefox as the best browser in security, compatibility and visual.
One more things for Firefox user...if anyone plan to install the new Firefox 2.0, take notice that some of the extensions and add-ons won't working.
Al Pacino is known from his role as a soft-spoken crimelord in Godfather Trilogy at 1970's (as well as Marlon Brando. I watch the trilogy over and over and over again....every year when I am at my hometown. Never buy it, I just rent it, coz I know for sure that it will be a waste if I buy it. Not because it's not worth it or somethin, simply just because it won't last long. I would lost it someday and I don't want to do that.
I thought that's all about Al Pacino and completely wrong I was. ...And Justice for All (1979) and Scent of Woman (1992) came along. In both of this movie, I saw the real quality of Pacino. Real actor with genuine characteristic. Nobody act like he does...i think, maybe becoz he has theater background. He is great, total and full of surprise. Especially in Scent of Woman, it's really amazing how he acted as a blind-ex-colonel with severe depresive disorder. He emphasized word at their own place and sometimes shouting out of nowhere. Also full with his famous "Whhoooaa!!", Pacino's original word.
Below I share some of the best scene captured from Justice for All and Scent of Woman. I named it "Out of Order I" speech and "Out of Order II" speech. Oh ya, here is some idea...watch those movies!!
"Out of Order I" speech by Pacino - And Justice for all
Taken from 1979 Pacino's movie, Justice for All. I bought the DVD few years ago, just because Pacino's name on it. Guess what? It's worth it every single penny. Al Pacino plays Arthur Kirkland, an incorruptible attorney who attempts to initiate reforms in the Maryland justice system. In the other hand, he forced by his swore enemy, Judge Fleming to act as his lawyer for a rape case. Later on, he discovered that Judge Fleming is real guilty. Dilemma between stand by his principal and step out of this business or deny his principal and be somebody that he doesn't.
The video above taken from the last scene in court. When Arthur Kirkland attack his own client, Judge Fleming in front of the whole court and media. Follow up my favourite monologue:
Arthur Kirkland: [takes a moment to gather himself] The one thing that bothered me, the one thing that stayed in my mind and I couldn't get rid of it, that haunted me was WHY?? Why would she lie? What was her motive or lying? If my client is innocent, She's Lying. Why? Was it blackmail? No. Was it jealousy? No. Yesterday, I found out why. She doesn't have a motive. You know why? Because she's not lying. And ladies and gentlemen of the Jury.......... the prosecution is NOT gonna get that man today, No!! Because I'M GONNA GET HIM! My client, the Honorable Henry T. Fleming, SHOULD GO RIGHT TO FUCKING JAIL! The son of a bitch is GUILTY!
"Out of Order II" speech by Pacino - Scent of Woman
THe scene from Scent of Woman, which make Al Pacino won his Oscar. Just feel like to share it. I watched it about 5 or 6 years ago at HBO. It's fuckin awesome, man. This blind man was tryin to impress the board committee with his blowin speech. If anyone want to see a great performance of a REAL actor...proudly present Lt. Col. Frank Slade
my favourite part here, the famous "out of order" speech: "Out of order!! I'll show you out of order!! You don't know what out of order is Mr. Trask! I'd show you but I'm too old, I'm too tired, and I'm too fuckin' blind. If I were the man I was five years ago I'd take a FLAME-thrower to this place. Out of order, who the hell do you think you're talking to?"
