Nowadays' kids

In the old days, kids ran around playing hide-and-seek.  But now, each of them engages in their own world with gadgets. -_-!!!

S



This exciting book is a novel within a novel.  I have just started though.

When I opened the book from for the first time after trying my best not to tear the decorative, nostalgic sticker on the slipcase but to no avail, I was like "How the heck am I gonna read this ?"

There are so many bits and pieces slipped in-between the pages.   Luckily, a reader has given a good suggestion of what should I do about it.


* * * * * * * * *
As cool as all the inserts are, trying to keep them from falling out of the book as you're reading is a pain, so take them out and use post-it notes to mark what page they came from, then put them in an envelope that you can easily access.

Now, J&E's notes are not entirely in chronological order. You can generally go by the color of the ink between them to tell what phase of their story you're at.

First, there's Eric's pencil notes to himself about the actual book. Then, the convo between J&E begins when Jen picks up Eric's book and sees his notes and begins commenting on them in the margins. He sees this and writes back. Those early messages are Jen: Blue Ink - Eric: Black Ink

At some point after they go through the book a first time, they go through again. This time Jen: Orange Ink - Eric: Green Ink.

Then a third time Jen: Purple Ink - Eric: Red Ink

Finally, a fourth time (which seems to be after the denouement, in which they retrospectively discuss what has transpired). These are less frequent, and both Jen and Eric are in Black Ink.

***Read each chapter of the main text of SoT, ignoring all of Jen&Eric's notes. Upon finishing each chapter, you're going to want to go back and read only the blue/black notes and any referenced inserts. Then, move on to the next chapter. After you finish the whole book, go back and read only the orange/green notes and referenced inserts. Then purple/red, then black/black.***
* * * * * * * * *

Oh OK.   Good advice.  Need a bit of hard work from my part. I will go ahead to just read the story first, ignoring Jen and Eric's marginal dialoque and clue pieces all over the book. Phew!

 What begins at the water shall end there, and what ends there shall once more begin.
He settles himself down with the weary sigh of a man who believes himself to be at the end of a long journey.

Hmm.  I like.

Here is the trailer.

B-DAY :)

Celebrating my incredible B-day this week.
Last Sunday with my own family members.

 His new fluffy pal, Leopard.

He likes the reflective cover of this book.

Fifty Shades of F.R.E.E.D

Finally.  Finished all three.  The last installment is predictable ...... live happily ever after, what else. 
The love-making scenes are too repetitive this round. 

I wonder how detail will the movie be.  Rated R21 ?

New Director's Showcase 2013

Attended the first Asia screening for New Directors' Showcase this evening at Cathay Cineplex.

 Intro by Paul Roebuck, CEO of Saatchi & Saatchi Singapore.


The showreel is a mix of commercials, short films, animation, music promos or some new film techniques. Some hilarious, some conceptional while some are truly controversial.  No wonder it is rated R21.

Here are some of them :
White Doves by Miles Jay
A music video features an arresting journey undertaken by two beautiful young lovers, ready to lay down their lives for each other Romeo & Juliet style. Lovely !

Raw Data by Jake Fried
An intriguing combination of materials, which are scanned into Photoshop to create captivating moving masterpieces. 

Mimic by Lucio Arese & Yu Miyashita
An hyperdense block of objects driven by music collides, collapses, spread into random formations and disintegrates at frantic speed. Very experimental.

Cut The World by Antony & The Johnsons
An intense music video. As if sending the message :If you don't like how you're boss treats you, slit his throat.  The lyric may give a clue :
For so long I’ve obeyed that feminine decree
I’ve always contained your desire to hurt me
But when will I turn and cut the world?
My eyes are coral, absorbing your dreams
My skin is a surface to push to extremes
My heart is a record of dangerous scenes
But when will I turn and cut the world?
When will I turn and cut the world?
When will I turn and cut the world?

Follow The Frog by Max Joseph
A Humorous short film to convey an important message from the Rainforest Alliance. Cracking !

Pulled Over by Peter Atencio
Another downright funny short film.  It is about two men who get pulled over by a traffic cop, and go to surprising lengths to avoid a fine.

Treat Me Right by Ohji Inoue for Keys N Krates
Toronto-based artist Inoue brings to life Kitsch covers of classic chick lit Mills & Boon in a cleverly idiosyncratic music video.

No One Remains Virgin 《獅子胯下》by Wong Ping
The most controversial of them all.  My first reaction : What the fuck !  I do not understand what it is about. Only through this site then I get a glimpse of the message behind. The concept started from the album title, Life Fucks Everyone, of a Hong Kong band, but eventually evolved into the artist's random weird thoughts. Though I certainly don't know if I like it or not.  It is too over the top.

It was mentioned in the booklet but didn't show. It was shot on an iphone, and was inspired by the children in Peter Pan who play with their shadows. I find it compelling.

All in all, I do enjoy the showreel, may be with a heavy head for some  -_-!!!
