mentally tired, will have to take a break from work 2mrw. life's stress has put a toll on my state of mind. it wouldnt be fair to my comrades to suffer on my lack of concentration.

will rest 2nite, alittle RnR, play my smackdown vs raw 2008 game on my PS3. 2mrw, i'll set up some sales of my old toys in yahoo auctions to raise some funds.

playasia free postage item came in within 8days again.
my silent hill 2 soundtrack. have just ripped it into my macbook and now syncing with my shuffle.

life is nice, life is ok, if we dont make mistakes. i was praying at st andrew's cathedral and this 2 bookmarks were on my desk. god has called upon me. jesus says come home ....

just like honey / jango fett

popped over falcon's hangar yesterday, and to my display, medicom jango fett was delayed. they had not smsed me not to come over as my toy reservation list has somewhat screwed up. clifford smsed me this morning for the actual arrival, collected it.

star wars had 2 sets of father and son, this is the notorious pair. and the world's most likeable bounty hunter is not keira knightly. it's boba fett himself, hands down.

with helm on. nice touch by medicom for employing leather-like material for jango' s vest armour. helm was made to proportion hence u cant fully wear it over timura's head.

sold a few items to fellow forumers from gamescore, like i always say, i would love to keep most of things i purchased. but sometimes due to unforseen circumstances, we sell the treasures of life for exchange for food and water, the daily needs.

i'm pretty inspired when in the car, the in-car stereo, blasting crisp and bassy tunes, muffling the noisy engine roar and misfired gear shift, i have plenty to say with all the thoughts unspoken within my matter of grey. but when it comes to the crunch of serious blogging, it's simple abc of bland narrations.

my entertainment fills the void of loneliness and despair, i watched re-runs of my dvds and hds to sleep. i'm off prozac, it's a long term investment, but a tough discipline. i chose mental war against my will to fate. plenty of things done as a couple, whether as spouses or bf/gf, things bought for each other, leaves a deep etched memory. it oozes out when re-encountered.

after my sales at citihall mrt, i popped over to st andrew's cathedral. the serenity of peace in a church hall, the beauty of god's presence, i prayed for repentance, for aid, for strength, and forerverness.

conincidently my new cd from amazon, a long-awaited one, "lost in translation" soundtrack, came with dracula, of both are works of the coppola family. bram stoker's dracula is directer by fancis ford coppola while "lost in tranaslation" is directed by his daughter, sofia coppola.

i bought this movie prior to my tokyo trip. not knowing the true meaning to the movie, but to experience the beauty of tokyo in HD, the movie is a love adventure. an actor of 50s, alone in tokyo, marries up with a bored girl who came along with her new husband for a photo shoot expedition. 2 people, with unfulfilled relationships, shares the truth of friendship and unspoken love. the soundtrack is heavily mod, with likes of my bloody valentine, air and jesus and the mary chain.

my first encounter with the band my bloody valentine was in the late 80s, the early nineties, when i was still doing vinyl. i had this double LP by some name like "indie vol 2" or something. they had some great unknown bands, which includes my bloody valentine doing "strawberry wine" and ghost dance with "fool's gold". i never really followed this band and sofia coppla had engaged kevin shields from the band to do a few astonishing tracks for this album. air is back, last seen collabrating with sofia on "virgin suicides" another haunting soundtrack. the last song was the ever brilliant jesus and the mary chain, from thier first album, "just like honey". haunting dark jangly guitars of the post-pop 80s, wasnt my youth when i digged light goth more, this song closes the movie well. there is a hidden track after just like honey", at 11th min, a song by bill murray, when he sang in in the karaoke.

this album is one of my best for this year, despite just a few days old. sweet, just like honey.

amazon finally

my re-sent amazon package finally arrived.

i cant fall asleep in the afternoon due to personal problems, mentally. have put up some items for sale again in and .

as i approach the 40s .... the problems didnt go away but got bigger, larger than life. life after all is a living hell. we strive to get better, while others manipulate to grow more money.

life was simpler, we shared our problems 2gether .... the outdoor photos of our toys, not missing any horror movies, feeding stray cats with cat food in the car boot, a promised future .... but people change, seasons change ....

someday problems will all go away .... tho i dont wish til i get to heaven, but i have to resort to this "fate" .... life goes on .... with or without u

silent hill again

what's with the old conan movie? this disc is double sided, comprises conan the barbarian n conan the destoryer. bug is william friedkin aka the exorcist director's movie. of which i should have exercise further research b4 jumping in. silent hill 3 soundtrack on the other hand is a must buy but i could have purchase thru playasia which will cost me 20+ dollars less. it has tracks that the silent hill movie has extracted.

allesca gillespie, girl from silent hill movie and silent hill origins did appear in silent hill 3. i played silent hill 2 n didnt complete 3 on the pc. resident evil, the other great horror genre game is all zombies, whereas silent hill series touches more on your pysche. will u go all out to save someone at silent hill?

after meetin my wife at the dental clinic, we had a xmas starbucks coffee b4 i left for another branch to get her the xmas penguin bear.

HMV next stop to get some goodies .... and more spotted. Led Zep Mothership, Scorpion's Deadlist Hits, both came with DVD. Emma Bunton first album ??? got it for that 3 catchy tunes. a Blu-Ray disc for scenery. was looking for that lefzep tee but they have 3 new SW lego tees, bought the one with the trooper.

next stop was Gamescore to collect my 360 Assassin's Creed. tho i have find WWE SvR 2007 too technical to game, the temptation of a free tee from the limited edition was overwhelming. Timothy and Jimmy helped me got a Large tee so i packed them up.

a crazy november indeed.

a soap tray

in games i enjoyed playing the role of a distraught protagonist, where life wasnt cool. a character who's life carries the heavy chain tied to a iron ball. i'm not that hero, i'm the sufferer, who seeks the truth of freedom.

in movies i feel for the sad main lead. where life is not perfect.

many peoples' life are perfect. tho hidden from the general public, the shame within a family, yet portrayed upfront, perfection smile. but my life isnt.

in mins i'll dwell in my new psp game, silent hill origins. to punish myself to tiredness, to blind the pain. stop my mind from wandering .... that a beautiful marriage will soon come to a halt.

do you remember this. a little nice gesture. a little treasure. a nice soap tray my wife bought for me. when life was beautiful. now only tears can hide my pain.

viva forever

former PSM (US) magazine has closed down. the new setup is PLAYSTATION the official magazine. this is a great welcome. PSM was great when editor Rob Smith moved in. and now we'll have a US Playstation to savour. price tag remains at a joyful SGD6.50. UK's official Playstation zine is cool, but i've really lost my interest over all UK's zines.

HMV's a real poison to visit. had my haircut and left the car at Orchard OG / Cuppage Plaza car park (2cents per min charge) and walked over to HMV. was there to get Natalie Imbruglia's Greatest Hits CD .... spotted a couple of goodies. testing a cd is a good move, wise as well, helps and avoid implusive purchase. i have last eliminated 4 cds, the cult's new one and across the universe soundtrack. tested em on amazon's site and was proven bad. concrete blond old album i missed and johnette napolitano's solo released were discarded buys too.

tried britney's new album, super beat for the beng car stereo, and sigor ros new twin cd .... they were ok but i went for safer buys in the end. all my 3 new cds came with a dvd. spice girls have plenty of great slow numbers. spice girls were 90s. it's nice to retune for a little retro pop. but i cant fathom myself listening to madonna. anymore. dave gahan's new album pushes a little to a dark beat, so it's a safe buy.

crazy november

bought my EoJ package from Sony Style at Bishan Junction 8. looks like they have revamped and rename Sony Gallery to Sony Style, same name as their websites. and at night junshen message me at PSN that the standalone PS3 eye has been released locally. i had intended to get just the eye as i dont really wanna indulge in EoJ aka Eye of Judgement game.

games i'm waiting for that will be release in the next few weeks:-
Assassin's Creed (PS3/360)
Kane n Lynch (PS3/360)
Uncharted: Drake's Fortune (PS3)
Rock Band (PS3)
Haze (PS3)

pretty crazy month for 360/PS3 ....

a malaysian looking couple was walking towards the Tower when i was returning from lunch. they were attempting to try if they can visit the Tower. the police kindly told them a negative while i showed my pass for entry. in my younger days, i would like "u know obviously u cant enter this restricted area", but these days i "be in their shoes" and show compassion n have sympathy. AGE - AGING, does have an effect on our thoughts, maturity perhaps.

?? S Power ?? What ??

harp strings of Nana soundtrack resonates transits to orchestral beat of Metal Gear Solid 3 soundtrack in my iPod shuffle. elaine hasnt been able to play her harp, some strings were down, and we are dead broke to have he strings replace prioritized. money goes out, we suffer and enjoy .... instant karma.

i was reading story of Michael Hutchence over wikipedia, the rise and fall of a depressed hero. Bono n Simon Le Bon were his beloved friends, and i never knew Paula Yates had passed away.

hawkboy199 is selling his Lego Star Wars Saga 360 game on the boards. and he was selling Conan 360 game too. i never got to play the Lego Star Wars previously, tried the demo and it was tedious. And of course Conan the game was a banished decision, despite the nudity and violence and being banned locally for distribution. Rick told me near to Playboxx Tampines is another shop that sell games at good price too. i had a 2hr lunch break so i drove down for a peek-a-boo.

boy this shop S Power is super packed . mothers, sons, fathers .... boys .... all in steady queue to be served. i looked thru he shelve to locate my Star Wars Lego Saga, PAL version but checked and it's playable on my local 360. and on the PS3 section was Conan in foiled cover staring back at me.

boy's out at Rick's .... we touched on COD4, Rub-a-Duck, plenty of demo, and of which Conan was played. the mindless decap, slashing, barrel tossing, and bad video turned me on.

so i thought i'm gonna finish up Orange Box 2day, almost at the end of EP2 .... and magor time for me to give COD4 some desreved time, here comes 2 more games. next in line .... Assassin's Creed, Uncharted: Drake's Fortune, Kane n Lynch, Rock Band, Haze. a wonderful November .... and am i to forgive not buying my bass guitar, which obviously i wouldnt have or find time, and the misssing PS3 Eye.

into the outside world

portal's left for the 3rd day. sometimes i still hear her bell ringing ....

been a GnR fan, neither a Stone Temple Pilot listening too. dont rem what i was listening when GnR came to the scene, but STP was surely outshined by Pearl Jam when grunge was heavy. guitar hero game francise brought me to the keen interest of slash n gang. yamaha's sellling their guitar package at a slashed price of 388 while the bass package goes down to 567. i'm dearly broke and in bad debt while my mind still eyes for a thing that i wont find time to concentrate ... to learn to play bass guitar or alternately play electric guitar.

with many games coming up for PS3 while 360 goes into a drought, i'm waiting for the not so useful PS3eyetoy.
