Nobody knows the way it's gonna be..

When life takes you to an almost dead end, you turn back and start planning for changes. It's easier said than done. But one should just take the risk that comes along with it, go ahead and take the dive. Who knows, those drastic changes is the best thing that could happened to you. It might bring your life to a better place.



So, I'm taking the dive. Today will be a major turning point for me. One of the few smajor turning points that will see either I'll make or break in life.

You can either stand aside, and watch me take the leap and come back closer when I succeed or run away whenh I failed like any typical Malaysians. OR.. You can choose to stand by me. And be by my side along the way.

Nobody knows what there in front of us, we just have to go and take a look for ourselves..

Will you?

Times are hard when things that have got no meaning i've
Found a key upon the floor
Maybe you and i will not believe in
The thing we find behind the door

I Know I Will...

Welcome to the 21st Century.

There are too many things to choose in just a very limited time. You need to choose your path, choose your lifestyle and yes, choose your friends.



Not just any friends who fits you well. They should be friends who fits you well and could bring benefits to you.

In case where you are such person who could not offer any benefit to others, pretend that you have one so that they might need you.

Feeling sad? Never show to them, because nobody in this urban world of the 21st century likes sad people. Unless, your sadness could bring fortune to them.

Until then, keep yourself positive. Think of happy thoughts. If you don't have any, make up one.. You'll need it to survive this crappy concrete jungle.

You'll be OK, as long as you be the king of wishful thinking..

I'll get over you.. I know I will
You made a hole in my heart
And I'll tell myself I'm over you
'cause I'm the king of wishful thinking


END
p.s I'm sorry, terasa ke?.. You actually have a heart?? WOW.....

Show me the money!! Show me the money!!

Did you watched the Oscars earlier? If you missed the show then I suggest you find a way to watch the repeat telecast. If you still miss the show, then I don't know what to say. Too Bad I guess..



So The Departed bags a few oscars, I could safely say Mexican's The Pan's Labyrinth followed the lead.

Ellen DeGeneres did a superb job hosting the show. She has all the criteria suited to host the Oscar Night. Which I believe, no Malaysian celebrities at this moment could even match up to her. (yes, the truth hurts and probably you're planning to make my life suffer after this statement.. kan kan??)

Anyway, Congratulations to all NOMINEES (as how the theme for this year's Oscar) To the Winners, have fun while it last..

Watch the video promo directed by Spike Lee for ABC Network. This is cool. Maybe we can copy the idea directly like the logo.

END
p.s Most of the winners are not Americans. Anybody realised that?

You Oscar.. Me Sparticus..

Ladies and Gentlemen..

WELCOME TO THE OSCARS!!


Oh ok.. Wrong picture.

Ladies and Gentlemen..

THIS IS THE OSCARS!!



Enjoy the show at Kodak Theater. Any other place, no matter how long is the red carpet, is just FAKE.

END
p.s Who will bring the oscars home? Defnitely not Linda Onn.

I don't belong here..

It has been a while since the last time I was tagged by anybody. I think that's why Elly, the ex-wife (you can assume and speculate now, like any great Malaysians) tagged me with this. I guess a vampire knows how to make another vampire's life difficult.. hahah



Alright, I'm getting it done and over with.. Here goes..

6 Weird Things About Me.(Yes, I know most of you can more than that about me..)

1. I'm a left-hander, I do most of the things with my left hand. Yet, I play guitar and I play hockey like any right-hander. I still play badminton or tennis with my left hand.

2. NO, I don't like beansprout a.k.a Tauge. Yucks!!.. but I can eat it when it's my mom's cooking. No, not because my mom forced me to.

3. I believe I am a Psychic. (you can laugh now).. I can predict what will happen next, and people will say I'm making stories, and later, when things did turn out as what I predicted. They'll shy away and avoid me. But only on situations, not anything involving the love of power and money (or 4D) that our lovely Malaysians obsessed with.

4. I learn a lot of things self-thought. From that HTML thingy, playing guitar to even using a software or map reading. Most of it are self thought. Simply because throughout my life, most of the people with those skills thatI know are either have no time to teach me, to lazy to spend time teaching me or simply to greedy to share any knowledge with me. So, I learn on my own.

5. I live doing Devil Advocates. Most people think that I'm being negative or going against them for doing so.(Boleh tahan bodoh jugak korang ni ye.. ) but all my intention is to do check and balance. (tak paham lagi?) Somebody have to do it. It does not mean I hate the idea.

6. Shallow bimbo-ish act irritates me to the max. Even if you are a supermodel and have all the rights in the world to be so. I just can't stand the idea that the more idiotic you get, the more chances you will get to do anything you want.

OK, DONE!!.. I would not state more than that. I already weird enough to be accepted in this society, I would not want to make this life harder than already is..

WHO WILL I TAG??...

ALL OF YOU!!.. Especially those who have not been updating their blogs, and those who just started blogging. (You know who you are..)

But I'm a creep
I'm a weirdo
What the hell am I doing here?
I don't belong here
I don't belong here


END
p.s Do you know how it feels to be an alien in your own land?

This is life (how cliche...)

BONUS ROUND.. I don't normally write 2 entries in one day.. But when shit happens way too many, over and over again..

You just can't help but to wonder, should I just move to another country, or.. should I just die. (I see many smiling with the second option. Don't get too excited just yet..)

Life is wonderful. Everything is wonderful. It really is.. and I'm happy for it..

See!! I'm smiling..



Some days I hate everything
I hate everything
Everyone and everything
Please dont tell me everything is wonderful now...


END
p.s OHH.. Enjoy your weekend.. it's Wonderful.

What if you got a chance to make a huge difference in a small way?

Do you remember the movie 'Pay It Forward'? (please don't tell me you don't know about the movie..) It's that movie starring Haley Joel Osmond, Kevin Spacey and Helen Hunt.. about a discussion made by a teacher in a Social Studies class that spunned this noble idea about living with one another and accepting everybody unexceptionally.



Imagine, if everybody take it as a personal mission to help 3 people who badly in need of help. Helping in things that is too huge for them to handle alone and once help is given, the only favor you ask from the person is to help another 3 people the same way you help them. And so 1 person ease 3 people's burden, these 3 people will then ease 9 other lives. Eventually, 9 people will ease 27 lives and by the time you know it.. everybody is in good hands.

Yet, such noble idea, often been taken for granted. Who would want to help anybody if there's nothing in return? People tend to avoid and keep quiet when they see any person who badly needs help. Hoping, this person in problem will not find them and walk far away from them. (oh, and if you're not beautiful or handsome or bimboish.. forget it as well.. no help for you..)

Now I ask all of you .. Is it that hard to give help to a person who is badlly in need? True, it is costly in some cases. and you barely make enough to even survive. But isn;t it great if we just take the effort and give a lending hand to those people. Making sure once they got through their difficulties, they'll do the same to others.

Wouldn't it be great to know, when everybody be for one another.. unexceptionally and without being judgemental, we can actually feel safe to live in this world, knowing that if you face any hardship in life, when you almost experiencing mental breakdown.. there are people, who will be there to help you get through it?

So, How about each of us take that leap of faith, and make that one step to pay it forward. Shall we? Yes, from the movie, the idea presented was similar to the MLM business presentation we almost hate to know.

But hey, if it's similar.. maybe.. is it possible that maybe, MLM business scheme would be a better way to do things? Isn't it? (or you rather be in the brown nose scheming business for the chauvinistic opportunist? )

The choice is yours.. Give it a thought and make the tiny little step to a better life ahead.

p.s WATCH THE VIDEO.. Seriously.. watch it.

It's just waiting for you..

Gong Xi Gong Xi.. If you have not make any new year resolution yet, too late!! No more new year celebration within the next few months. (orang dah bagi 3 kali new year within 2 months pun tak buat-buat lagi..)Well, that does not mean your life is over right? Just slightly meaningless, that's all.. hahahah



Those of you who dream big. People who have goals to achieve this year. How would go about in achieving it? How many of you feel that without making any sense, that practical goals you set seems far to reach from what you expected to be?

Ever thought that maybe, and just maybe you're dragging the bad past with you? Living with the traumatic experiences you had until you forget what's lie before you, the present and the future. Ever thought that this might be the reason?

Or maybe, you have not deal with the past entirely. Leaving those small bits and pieces with no closure. It's ok to do that if you just forget about it, but you didn't. You still have it stored somewhere in your memory department. Isn't it time to just let it go?

The thing is, to achieve any goals and dreams is not just based on your brains and skills. Your heart must first be ready to take charge. Your heart must be willing to open up to possibilities. It is from the heart that the brain will work with fresh motivation and energy. Thus, lead to much sharper skill performance.

Now, check if your heart is ready for the open future. Let it free, and like this song from Travis, Love will come through.. eventually.

I learn the hard way. You, on the other hand can still choose not to.

By the way, it will only work if you start to care about other people as well. Self-centered is just plain evil.

If the world isn't turning
Your heart won't return
Anyone, anything, anyhow
So take me, don't leave me
Take me, don't leave me
Baby, love will come through
It's just waiting for you


END
p.s Let's just move forward and take things a step at a time..

Shine on the limelight hoggers till they go blind..

What have our nation become? Almost everybody seeking that single limelight. Enough that artiste need the limelight. That is comprehensible. Even when 4 diva's collaborate in a song and everybody silently (silent??) trying to top each other when they should work with one another.. THAT too, is still comprehensible.



What happen when politicians, athletes, TV personalities, CEOs, scriptwriters, social workers and even bloggers who seems desperate seeking the limelight? OK, excuse the politicians, I can understand why they need it. (Same as top paragraph..)

OK, I admit we seek a certain acknowledgment to what we do. But that just mean each seek the limelight on your areas of interest. Right?

So what the hell that everybody is hogging for the same limelight? Everybody's seems to be seeking for fame and glamour. The same way the artiste and the big P are getting. Even journalist wants to be a talkshow host. Better still, a mediocre sportsman turns up to be a TV host.

That itself is already not a good sign, yet now bloggers seeking for celebrity star around their neck? How low can you go?

Just do whatever you are meant to do. Popularity and public acknowledgment will come eventually without even you seek for it. That is.. If you're good enough.

Then again, this land is run by crude advertisers.. forget about my suggestions and just do whatever you feel right. What is ethics anyway, right?

Don't get me wrong here.. (don't sue me..) I'm just wondering what's going on here..

Baby on your own you take a cautious step
Do you wanna give it up?
But all I want is for you to SHINE
Shine down on me (just show me something)
Shine on this life that's burning out
(you show me something that I never know)

If I could be who you wanted..

Welcome to the Urban Experience of Mud Valley.



Gorgeous figures, expensive material possessions, sweet talks, beautiful images, well-planned charisma, power suits charms, elegantly wasted, sexual charms, professional seductions and anti-Asian tradition are parts of our highlights in this wonderful city.

Experience it. These are the fake lives of the Urban Mud Valley. As you live in this disgusting valley, outer image is everything. Power and money speaks louder than anything else.

We hope you have the time of your life. Before you start your experience here, do check your heart and brain at the counter. You won't be needing it while you're here.

To get you started with this fake life. Do enjoy our official theme video by Radiohead. You will love this life.

She looks like the real thing
She tastes like the real thing
My fake plastic love.
But I cant help the feeling
I could blow through the ceiling
If I just turn and run
And it wears me out, it wears me out
It wears me out, it wears me out.


ENJOY YOUR STAY..

We need more rock bands!! (like them..)

I've watched many award shows. I've been to many award shows. In fact, I've worked on award shows before.



In award shows, you'll see great performances. You'll see people presenting awards and the most important part of show are those people who receive the awards.

This is the acceptance speech by Red Hot Chili Peppers, who just add another 4 Grammys to their collections. I respect them for their songs. Now, I respect them for not forgetting the people who work with them behind the scene. Especially, the sound engineers.

I don't remember any local artiste who credited their sound engineers for receiving an award on their album. Most of the time, they thank God (duh, aren't we all need to thank God?) and their parents (bringing you up does not make a good album) and the Label bosses.

NO, I don't say that you should not thank them. But, most of the time they forgot to credit their own Managers, Personal Assistants, Crews and Sound Engineers. Which is sad because.. if not for these people, they are not where they are now. (No, they don't care if you're famous now.. they're doing their job)

And I don't say all artistes are stuck-ups. Just some of them.

Then again, why bother reminding them when they are floating high in the air far away from you? Wait till they drop hard on the ground and see if it's worth reminding them or just squash them really hard.. Either way, it's up to you.

Let see if our artiste would say such thing at the AIM this year. Let see if they can identify who are the important people behind their success. Shall we?



While you're at it, this is the latest video from Red Hot Chili Peppers. Seems that their videos are getting more people-centric lately. I wish to see more of such from our local bands.

After all, this year's AIM is meant for the unsung heroes of the music industry.

END
p.s Can you identify the unsung heroes behind your success?

The truth is Stranger Than Fiction

If there's any movie that I would recommend you to watch within this few week, Stranger Than Fiction would be it.



It's a great movie with superb scripts, excellent casts and definitely too intelligent to be co-branded with any Malaysian corporate products. (Idiotic-but-cool is the way to be in Malaysia).

I watched this movie last night on a midnight show. The cinema was half empty. (I could say it half full but I don't want to encourage such results here..) I'm sure that's the result of not having any real promotions for the movie. Not being able to be labeled as a chic flick on Valentines day as well as no macho special effect and sex scenes would be the reason why it is not deemed as a movie to watch compared to Epic Movie..

Seriously, having Will Farrell along with great screen actors like Dustin Hoffman and Emma Thompson, blended with a superb script.. makes this movie a great one for anybody who have brains and embrace life to watch.

If you fall under those categories of human beings in Malaysia, do watch this movie. In the mean time, enjoy the trailer.

By the way, the official website is really cool too.

END
p.s Mat Rempit should be guided by another intelligent being (it could be a dog) to watch this movie. Too intelligent for such people to even start to think.

I wish I am.. I wish I was..

wish n.
1. A desire, longing, or strong inclination for a specific thing.
2. An expression of a desire, longing, or strong inclination; a petition.
3. Something desired or longed for.



Pearl Jam - Wishlist


Maybe it's lame to talk about it. Everybody got their own wish. No doubt about that. Our wish came in different level. Some came shallow, some came with a big heart.

No matter what the wishes are, the fact is we all have our own wishes. Either we work our way to make our wishes comes true or not is a different issue. We all wish for something.

Yes, I do have wishes of my own. I do think if I want declare my wish, I have to make a long list of it. Some did came true. Some are on-going process and there are a lot more that have not seen the daylight just yet.

So, I wish that my all my important wishes will come true. I wish that I could prove myself worthy to those who are close to me. I wish that my life is significant to people around me. I wish I'm not being neglected and left away from this life cycle.

Most of all, I wish I'll be a better person everyday as compared to yesterday.

Wish will turn to Hope. Hope will be a prayers and with prayers, life should go on and let God decide what would be the best for you.

There's nothing wrong to wish for something better. As long as those wishes are not to create misery to other people.

And I wish you could take your time to watch this video by Pearl Jam.

I wish I was the souvenir you kept your house key on.
I wish I was the pedal break that you depended on.
I wish I was the verb to trust, and never let you down.
I wish I was the radio song, the one that you turned up,
I wish, I wish, I wish, I wish,
I guess it never stops.


What's your wish?

END
p.s Oh, I wish Happy Birthday to Murni. (No, not Cikgu Murni from that Labu Labi movie..)

Alamak.. how come la??..

Headquarters, we have a problem. I've been watching this performance by Joss Stone & Rob Thomas over and over again. Too many times, that I lost count.



Joss Stone is great. Rob Thomas is good. It's a very nice cover song. Joss Stone is great. The music is cool. Joss Stone is great.. (jap, berapa kali dah sebut Joss Stone? )

Oh damn, this will haunt me throughout the weekends..

Baby you could never look me in the eye
Yeah you buckle with the weight of the words
Stop draggin my...
Stop draggin my...
Stop draggin my heart around


How come la?

Sigh....

END
p.s Joss Stone is great..

That's what I was trying to do..

I am never a fan of Bollywood movies. No offense, but I just can't get myself to appreciate the stories presented.



No doubt, the cinematography are great. The colors are exciting. The songs and dance are somewhat.. OK, that too I can't appreciate. (sakit telinga la vocal camtu..)

But I can't deny that Bollywood has influenced the world in some way or another. No matter how hard they try to be like the west, copying almost every single stories, tv shows and lifestyle, Bollywood will still be Bollywood. The traits are really thick in them that not even them can brushed that away.

The traits are so thick, it has accidentally creeps into Hollywood and American music videos. Just watch at Star Wars : Episode 2, where Anakin & Amidala running around the field as part of the love scene. Try watch Green Day's Wake Me Up When September Ends long version video.

And if you thought it stops there, watch this 'Bollywood-centric' video of Rascal Flatts's What Hurts The Most. You'll get the point.

The truth is, as much as I dislike Bollywood movies, I'm amazed how having having your Bollywood storytelling treatment create an impact to the western world.

For that I salute Bollywood.

END
p.s I guess if we just let those 'datin-datin fresh oren' movie treatment being a regular approach to our local storytelling style, maybe someday we'll see such treatment in Hollywood. NO?.. Why not? Fresh Oren satu...

Nothing's Gonna Change My World

ARE YOU a Beatles fan? ARE YOU a fan of Bono? ARE YOU into musicals? ARE YOU a movie fan? (OK, I sound like my niece now..) This entry should interest you. Read on..



This year would be a year full for horror and sci-fi flicks. As a 'not-eager-and-skeptical' Malaysian Movie fan, I can easily list 8-9 local horror flicks that should be coming out soon. (well, either it is a horror movie or it's just another horror film making)

Wait!!.. I'm not going to touch on those horror movies. (I had enough of it already)

Here's a movie that could give you a different air to breath. A musical movie by Julie Taymor.

No, do not say musical is boring yet. How about a musical movie that sets to the backdrop of 1960's? (ya, aku tahu aku tak lahir lagi masa tu..) An original musical story that based solely on The Beatles legendary songs? How about if I say the frontman of U2, (yes, it's Bono) is in this movie? Would that excites you? (traslates : adakah anda teruja?)

Get ready for 'Across The Universe.' Coming to theaters (or pirate DVD if this movie didn't make it to Malaysian cinemas) this September.

If you think you had enough of those genres, if you think that the cinemas got nothing else to offer. If (maybe) you're frustrated with any of the horror flicks that end up below your expectation (like those movies directed by overrated Mamat) till it you classify it more into parody comic than horror itself, Don't worry.. Have a musical for a change.

Come on, you think musical is too soft? Think about Strictly Ballroom. Think about Moulin Rouge. It's harder to create a musical than a (konon-konon) macho movie..

NOW.. Think about Across The Universe.

Words are flying out like
endless rain into a paper cup
They slither while they pass
They slip away across the universe
Pools of sorrow waves of joy
are drifting thorough my open mind
Possessing and caressing me


Go ahead, watch the trailer. You would love it.

END
p.s Living in denial is cool I guess, it's a way to make a living here and I need to learn how to do that.

I swear I’ll never give in ..

Seems that there's too many things to think about. Too many questions left unanswered. Too many desperados wanting to live like a King at any cost. Too much time wasted beating around the bush. Too many depressing moments that can no longer regret.



When you're on that stage, you left with no option but just take it on your own and smile. The rule of being around people is not to show that you're in deep shit. They'll try their best to avoid you.

Then again, when you can cope with that well, they'll turn around and say, you're useless for not showing that you're worried about those matters..

What the hell.. One person's problem is a another one million people's good news. Maybe , for the sake of 'Greater Good'..this one person should suffer.

Might as well just stab a knife and end his life right? But, where's the fun when there's no suffering?

Go ahead.. have fun.. Nothing is personal. Just another organised game of heart.

Has someone taken your faith?
Its real, the pain you feel
The life, the love
You die to heal
The hope that starts
The broken hearts
You trust, you must
Confess!


END
p.s Don;t worry.. This is just another big joke.. What goes around will definitely comes around.

Makes no sense..

I just made a personal record I guess. When I should be working on something, I end up staring at tho monitor of this old notebook for almost an hour and not doing anything. No, there's movie playing on the screen either. I just froze in front of the monitor.


That's not good. I know. Something good will happen later, I believe that. At this moment.. things are just so mixed up.

I don't make sense here.. Why don't I just play this video and put up the lyrics in full. Maybe that make more sense than I am.

This is my song of the day.

Tracy Chapman - Change
If you knew that you would die today,
Saw the face of God and love,
Would you change?
Would you change?

If you knew that love can break your heart
When you're down so low you cannot fall
Would you change?
Would you change?

How bad, how good does it need to get?
How many losses? How much regret?
What chain reaction would cause an effect?
Makes you turn around,
Makes you try to explain,
Makes you forgive and forget,
Makes you change?
Makes you change?

If you knew that you would be alone,
Knowing right, being wrong,
Would you change?
Would you change?

If you knew that you would find a truth
That brings up pain that can't be soothed
Would you change?
Would you change?

How bad, how good does it need to get?
How many losses? How much regret?
What chain reaction would cause an effect?
Makes you turn around,
Makes you try to explain,
Makes you forgive and forget,
Makes you change?
Makes you change?

Are you so upright you can't be bent?
If it comes to blows are you so sure you won't be crawling?
If not for the good, why risk falling?
Why risk falling?

If everything you think you know,
Makes your life unbearable,
Would you change?
Would you change?

If you'd broken every rule and vow,
And hard times come to bring you down,
Would you change?
Would you change?

If you knew that you would die today,
If you saw the face of God and love,
Would you change?
Would you change?
Would you change?
Would you change?

If you saw the face of God and love
If you saw the face of God and love
Would you change?
Would you change?

I bet you're hard to get over

Anybody remember those games in the newspaper called 'Spot The Difference'? It's a simple game where they put 2 pictures side by side, which 90% similar between the two and ask you to spot where the differemnces are. Some ask for 5, some ask for 10 depending on which newspaper you read.



The Japanese came up with those electronic arcade game of such game. You are needed to spot a specific number of differences needed within the time limit given in order for you to move to the next level.

Simple? Fun? It is isn't it? Something simple yet challenging would always urge you to try.

OK, Let's try to make a game on this entry. I'll put 2 videos. One is 'If You're Gone' by Matchbox Twenty, another is 'Risalah Hati' by Dewa. Both videos are produced somewhere in 2001.



Here's the game. It's not for you to spot the differences. In fact, I would love if you could spot the similarities between the 2 videos. How about that? Easy isn't it?

Well, you won't get bored of it since both songs are very beautiful songs.

Something to start your week. Up to it? GOOD LUCK!!

I think you're so mean - I think we should try
I think I could need - this in my life
I think I'm just scared - that I know too much
I can't relate and that's a problem I'm feeling


END
p.s Come on, be a sport. Watch the video and tell me..

Where are the signs to help me get out of this place?

This is life. Face it. The journey through life is not as smooth as you always wanted to be. If you're tough enough to face the obstacles, then life has it's way to be even tougher on you. In which case, the degree of obstacles differs from one person to another. But the effect to the each individuals the same manner.



A spoiled rich man daughter would freak out on her broken nails the same way as an orphan who lose all their belonging. The difficulty level is logically far different but the stress level affecting them are the same.

So how do feel when you're down and deeply in need of help but nobody's around you who care enough to lend a hand?

How do you feel when you're promised certain payment to be received today, and end up not hearing from them at all the whole day?

How do you feel when you seldom seek help from anybody, and the moment you seek help from those who frequently seek help from you, they run to avoid you?

How do you feel, to care for things and matters that in the end would not give a damn about you?

I had it with all this craps.. It's been too long and I wonder If I made the right decision in life. What if I alrEady passed the right choice?

So, this song will definitely haunt me the whole weekend. Damn it.. What choice do I have anyway? Not that I like feeling this way..

If I should stumble on my moment in time,
How will I know?
If the story's written on my face, does it show?
Am I strong enough to walk on water,
Smart enough to coming out of the rain,
Or am I a fool going where the wind blows?



Look, I know. My problem. Why would it be any of your concern? Right?

Happy weekends everybody... Please do.

END
p.s Too many 'friends witrh benefit' in this world.. if you have nothing to offer, do not live at all..By that, I think I'll be the first one to die.

Sometimes the clothes do not make the man..

People have been asking my opinion about this matter for quite sometime. I guess I should say something. We know that two bloggers has been sued by NST. We are concern about our rights to have the freedom of speech. We are also aware that, as much as freedom of speech is concerned, responsible blogging which, as much as possible follow the ethics of 'old-school' journalism (Modern journalism still need to verify it's ethics. Situation is different now..)

I'm not pointing to any specific party. I think it's time for all party to respect each others opinions, pointing out the facts without being too emotional and try to avoid being a bully.

If the 9MP suggest that it is important for Malaysians to produce contents that are meaningful and full of substance, then we must find a way to reach that goal. What can be better than having a freedom of speech and freedom to creativity as process to achieve this goal? Yes, once a while, check and balance are needed to avoid these freedoms from going off limits, but hey.. nobody's perfect right?

After all, all these happen because we care and we want to contribute in developing a better society than what we already are. In short, opinions stated because we care.

All we have to do now
Is take these lies and make them true somehow
All we have to see
Is that I don't belong to you
And you don't belong to me


Look for solutions.. don't impose ultimatums.

Until then, we are still far from reaching the freedom plateau.

Do I make sense to you in any way?

p.s Still, this is a personal opinion based on that little knowledge and intelligence that I have in me. Over-reacting is not necessary here. This is meant for intellectual discourse.. (search the dictionary if you still don't understand)
