TVB's 2004 lineup, this show got my attention by just reading the title of it. The show is about a police officer and how he solved cold cases by communicating with his father in the past by using an old handphone. Yeah, I know this isn't an original idea. It was ripped off from the movie "Frequency". But hey, I haven't watch "Frequency", so who cares? It is the how the storyline is implemented that is important. And after watching 4 episodes of the series, I am impressed with the storyline is being laid out. However, one disturbing thing about this series is, when I watched the opening theme song scenes, some of the scenes in the opening song is very disturbing. Disturbing in the senses that I don't really like what the storyline is going to turn out as the story progressed. If my experiences as a fanfiction writer has anything to go by, I just don't like the prediction that I have made for the storyline just by watching the scenes from the opening theme song. Call me paranoid or over thinking, I don't care. I think this is one story that is going to get on my nerves for "unlimited possibilities" in the storyline. I think this series is also going to be one of my favourite series too. If you all remember, I like to think about the possibilities, and this show really fits that bill.

Me, using email again to blog. For no apparent reason. Must be the boredness or something like that. Or it is just me? I really don't have the slightest clue. I wanted to play Super Robot Wars Alpha Gaiden, but then this level is freaking hard. So, I got lazy again,and now I am stuck with nothing to do. Anyone out there can help me overcome this boredom?

Nani? Only one invitation? Sigh. And I thought I could invite more than just 1 person. So, I had to give my cousin priority first. The rest who had bookings with me will have to wait a little bit more to get an invitation.

After the initial excitement of getting the Silent Hill 4 : The Room OST, the aftermath is a bit disappointing. First, I notice my speaker is having some weird "clicking" sound at 2 second intervals. It will happen no matter what, with the exception of turning it off. Even with the computer turned off and the speaker on, the clicking sound is still there. What the hell? I just bought the speakers no too long ago, or should I say, about 1 month ago, and now it is annoying me to hell with the clicking sound. Blardy hell.
So, I had to dig out my old speaker and pack up the new speaker. Damn, now to suffer another annoying thing that result from the using of my old speaker. That is, if anyone called me on my handphone or my handphone is updating itself, the frequency interferences will cause my old speaker to Buzz like hell. However, it is better than having the annoying "clicking" sound at 2 seconds intervals.
Hell, now I have to check if my new speaker is in good condition or not. If not I have to travel 400km to Kuala Lumpur, find my cousin and do a RMA. :(

Just finished downloading Silent Hill 4 : The Room Original Soundtracks.Now, I am adding the whole OST to Foobar2000 and click play.
First song - /me is listening to Akira Yamaoka, Mary Elizabeth McGlynn - Tender Sugar [#01 @ SILENT HILL 4 THE ROOM ORIGINAL SOUNDTRACKS (DISC 1) (2004)] [MP3|189kbps|5:32] [foobar2000 v0.8.2]
Do I even need to say anything? It blew me away!
10 out of 10 rating.
Slowly as I type out this blog, each song blew away my music senses. The town of Silent Hill suddenly appear before me. I see the notorious fog of Silent Hill blinding parts of the buildings. As each song played, it was apparent Akira Yamaoka had did it again. He dished out a superb OST.
I had to skipped a few songs, since my cousin was telling this song is good, that song is even better, until I don't know which song to listen to. So, in the end, I settle for song number 21 -
/me is listening to Akira Yamaoka, Mary Elizabeth McGlynn - Room Of Angel [#21 @ SILENT HILL 4 THE ROOM ORIGINAL SOUNDTRACKS (DISC 1) (2004)] [MP3|180kbps|7:08] [foobar2000 v0.8.2]
Indeed. Another superb song by Akira Yamaoka, while Mary is really GOOD!
After song number 21, the next track is song number 22 -
/me is listening to Akira Yamaoka, Mary Elizabeth McGlynn - Waiting For You ~LIVE AT "Heaven's Night"~ (Unreleased Tunes) [#22 @ SILENT HILL 4 THE ROOM ORIGINAL SOUNDTRACKS (DISC 1) (2004)] [MP3|235kbps|6:19] [foobar2000 v0.8.2]
And this one really BLEW ME TOTALLY AWAY! The background guitar by Akira Yamaoka is at par or even better than his previous Silent Hill OST. However, I would like to say that ALL of Akira's works are top notch music. He is truely the God of Guitar.
GET THIS OST by HOOK or BY CROOK! Now, would you excuse me while I relisten to song number 22. It is truely Akira Yamaoka's Heaven's Night.
Now that I have listened to a few more songs, here is the few more l33t music from the OST that is a must listen.(in no particular order)
/me is listening to Akira Yamaoka, Mary Elizabeth McGlynn - Your Rain [#15 @ SILENT HILL 4 THE ROOM ORIGINAL SOUNDTRACKS (DISC 1) (2004)] [MP3|191kbps|4:42] [foobar2000 v0.8.2]
/me is listening to Akira Yamaoka - Nightmarish Waltz [#13 @ SILENT HILL 4 THE ROOM ORIGINAL SOUNDTRACKS (DISC 1) (2004)] [MP3|171kbps|3:09] [foobar2000 v0.8.2]
/me is listening to Akira Yamaoka, Joe Romersa - Cradel Of Forest [#11 @ SILENT HILL 4 THE ROOM ORIGINAL SOUNDTRACKS (DISC 1) (2004)] [MP3|194kbps|6:30] [foobar2000 v0.8.2]

First it was CSI Las Vegas. Gil Grissom and his CSI team of Catherine Willows,Warrick Brown,Nick Stokes,Sara Sidle,Dr. Al Robbins and Greg Sanders took the TV world by storm. Then came CSI:Miami. Horatio Caine,Tim Speedle,Eric Delko,Alexx Woods and Calleigh Duquesne brought another storm into the TV world. Thus, the CSI era had already begun. The next CSI TV show to appear will be CSI:New York. Detective Mack "Mac" Taylor will be leading his New York CSI team as the show hits the TV screen in the US in November 2004. And the CSI dream continues.....
On a personal note, CBS's CSI can be so popular, probably because of the mystery and advanced technology that appeared in the show. I don't know if forensic sciences can actually be learned by watching the show, but I have to admit it, after watching Grissom and gang tear their cases wide open with their technology and their knowledge, I am interested in forensic sciences. One most interesting thing about the show however would be the usage of DNA profiling. Most of the cases was solved because of DNA acquired at the crime scenes. DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) are molecules that carry the genetic information necessary for the organization and functioning of most living cells and control the inheritance of characteristics. Only recently that DNA is the heavily debated topic because people have managed to clone using DNA. So, I do think the show do educate people on the usefulness of DNA. However, cloning is still a big issue that is still been debated. I will leave it at that.
Back to CSI. Season 4 of CSI Las Vegas ended and I can't wait for more CSI when it returns in August. And I can't wait for CSI New York to debut in November. Before I stop, I wonder if there will be other CSI shows in the making? CSI Chicago perhaps? You can never know as the CSI Era is still in it's "Golden Age".

Ok, the first Gundam series I am going to watch. Gundam Seed. However, only managed to download 4 episodes for the moment. Well, because the version I downloaded is DVD ripped. So, it is very clearer than the VCD version's.
Well, I will write up more when I finish watching episode 1 to episode 4. Until then, look out for more Gundam action from me. :)

I know majority of people don't have chinese support install onto their Windows machine. Well, there is really nothing I can do however. I will still continue to blog in dual language. Chinese and English. I am Chinese, and I will use my native language to blog regardless. Even if those visiting my blog can't even read Chinese. At least 1 in 10 can read or has chinese support installed.
If you know chinese and want to read my blog entries that are written in chinese, then I suggest that you install Chinese support go here -> How to install East Asian Language Support Under Windows XP
you can go here -> NJWIN CJK Viewer. (NJWIN is a "plugin" software designed to enable normal windows programs to display and print Chinese, Japanese and Korean (CJK) characters under the standard English and Western Windows environment.)
Hope you all who like to read my blog will be able to read the chinese characters using the above two methods. Good Luck.

Another of my ranting about waiting for episodes of Virtues of Harmony 2 to arrive. It just can't stop. Why? Because I am totally restless. I need to know what happen after episode 224!!! I just need to know!!! I could go and rent episode 225 to 228 now, but what's the use? I have to wait another week for episode 229 to 232! And another week later for episode 233 to 236, and so on! I just can't do that! I want to know the storyline ALLL ATTTT ONCEEEE!!!!
So, I rather sacrifice and WAIT 5 MONTHS!!! Geez......5 months just for 100 episodes. Don't know if I can survive or not. I hope I can.
Additional ranting/venting :
I was almost forced to install REAL media player just to download Virtues Of Harmony 2. I simply can't wait for 5 months. Blardy hell.
However, my computer is more important than anything else. So, I rather wait. :)

I found out from my rental shop that they will only get 4 episodes per week. So, 5 weeks is 20 episodes, 10 weeks is 40, 15 weeks is 80, 20 weeks is 100. 20 weeks equals 5 months more or less. 5 months. Oh my god! I need to wait 5 months if I want to watch lots of episodes continously.
Geez, I wished I could just watch everything NOW!!! NOW!!!
Oh, someone please save me from this WAITING Hell!!!!!! ARRRGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHH......
I am preparing to wait for 6 months for about 120 episodes of Virtues of Harmony 2. 6 months is a freaking long time to wait. Damn. This is really frustrating. And I can't download over the net because those Hong Kong people like to release them drama series in REAL format. And I don't like to use REAL format. :(
Additionals 2 :
Why am I crazy about a tv series/soap opera anyway? I will tell you all why. I am someone who learn from the storyline from the series. The question is : Learn what? Some people might argue that there is nothing to learn. It is in fact a TV series. It is all fiction. There is NOTHING to learn. I disagree.
I am not a normal person. I learn experiences from TV series. I grew up watching cartoons. I learn a lot from cartoons. Then I started watching tv series. And I learn from them. You might ask : What have I learned?
I learn about life. I learn what not to do in real life. I learn that people aren't as easy as they seem. Couple with my real life experiences, I have turned into someone who believe more in the TV than in real life. That is my curse.
But a curse that I intend to keep. It makes me special in the eyes of other people. Like I care if I turned out to be a freak? I am what I am. I don't intend to act as if I am someone else. That's just not me.

Going back to Xfresh.com forum. Dejavu all over again. This is the second time I have left and return to Xfresh.com. Weird. I can't seem to get away from it, and I am 25 years old and ain't no teenager anymore anyway. So, what is so special about Xfresh.com?
The only reason that I could think of is : it's Malaysian.
I think that's it!

No, there is nothing wrong with the series. It is just me in agony. My local TVB rental shop don't have available episode 225 and above. So, you see my dilemma! I have to wait for episode 225 and above to be available!!! That's the problem!!! I CANNOT WAIT!!!!! I just cannot wait, I need to know the storyline as it go!!! I can't just wait 1 month for episode 225 to be available!!!! I need to watch straight right up to episode 400+!! Letting me wait only makes me feel restless. I just need to know NOW!!! I can't wait! If anyone out there has Virtues of Harmony 2 available, GIVE ME!!! NOW!!!
Please, I beg of you!!! PLEASE!!!!!
Not that I am a tv fanatic. I just want to know the storyline as soon a possible instead of waiting day by day,week by week. I rather know the storyline hour by hour. So, I can finish a 400 episode series in 1 week or less. I admit I am crazy, but I just need to know the storyline. Why? Because I learn from the storyline and incorporate the storyline into my own real life. Why again? because I am in the process of creating my own style, my own living and my own lifestyle. I REFUSE to follow what normal people do. Just like Frank Sinatra's song "My Way". [quote]I did it my way[/quote]
So, everything I do and plan to do, I will do it MY WAY!

Angel ended. Buffy ended.CSI,CSI Miami all season finale (waiting for another season). Charmed is not worth watching after the middle of Season 5. Alias got uninteresting. The rest I either need to watch starting from Season 1, or it is not shown in Malaysian TV...YET.
Renting US TV series is impossible as there is no shops in Malaysia that is willing to do rental. However, you can buy the DVD versions of Buffy , Alias....and a few more US TV series. However, buying is damn expensive. Some people can't afford it, while I think it is a waste of money just to buy the DVD version of the series when you can download it over the internet using Kazaa(highly recommended NOT TO USE IT), Emule...etc.
However, recently the US TV series is getting more uninteresting. Good series like Angel and Buffy ended. Both of them are good series. I wished they didn't end so soon. However, all good things shall come to an end eventually. I hoped there are better series being produced in the coming future.
I am now more into Hong Kong TV series. It was 50 - 50 then when Charmed gone to hell, I watched more Hong Kong TV series than I used to. I even stop watching Alias after the plot got tooooooo predictable (it must be just me).
I love to watch TV series, but the US TV series obviously needs to inject some new blood into the storyline. I wouldn't want to just watch Hong Kong TV series if the storyline or plots get worst and worst or simply put it, the scriptwriter's RAN OUT OF IDEAS.
