For almost two weeks, I got disconnected from internet. Yeah, I did. The Internet in my office was down for about 10 days, leaving us, web designers and programmers, confused and didn't have a lot to do. My resolution to post at least once in 1 week got distracted too.

I don't really have a lot to say in this post, besides that I'm officially disconnected (wow, I used the word a lot, lol) from Manchester United matches in EPL (and probably FA Cup too) this season because EPL isn't on free TV anymore. And it is quite expensive to install Aora TV (the one with the exclusive rights to air EPL), 1,7 million rupiahs in 1 year might seem a bargain deal (only about Rp 150.000 a month), but considering it has to be paid up front, it's a lot of money, and I can't afford that, even for me to watch my favorite player play his two last seasons of football. Sorry, Paul... But I will always follow the result and news and highlights and anything other than the live matches, so I won't be really out of date about EPL and MU especially.

I uploaded quite a few songs in my 4shared account, which you can find here. Feel free to download those songs, just give me a feedback if you like them. As I said, I might post other songs.

David Archuleta's New Single - Crush

David Archuleta has just released his first single after becoming runner-up in American Idol 7, titled Crush.

It's a pop song with a little bit R&B and Soul elements, and I think it is surprisingly very good. At first, I thought Crush would be a mere bubblegum pop, because I thought the recording studio would make David sing commercial materials of his age (he is just 18), but how wrong I was.
The song is really catchy while not sounding bubblegum. You should give it a listen.

Below is the lyric and the download link.

I hung up the phone tonight,
something happened for the first time, deep inside
It was a rush, what a rush
Cause the possibility that you would ever
Feel the same way about me
It's just too much, just too much
Why do I keep running from the truth
All I ever think about is you
You got me hypnotized, so mesmerized, and I just got to know

Do you ever think, when you're all alone
All that we could be, Where this thing could go
Am I crazy or falling in love
Is it real or just another crush
Do you catch a breath, when I look at you
Are you holding back, like the way I do
Cause I'm trying, trying to walk away
But I know this crush ain't goin away, goin away

Has it ever crossed your mind when we were hanging
Spending time girl, are we just friends
Is there more, is there more
See it's a chance we've gotta take
Cause I believe we can make this into
Something that will last, last forever, forever

Do you ever think, when you're all alone
All that we could be, Where this thing could go
Am I crazy or falling in love
Is it real or just another crush
Do you catch a breath, when I look at you
Are you holding back, like the way I do
Cause I'm trying, trying to walk away
But I know this crush ain't goin away, goin away

Why do I keep running from the truth
All I ever think about is you
You got me hypnotized, so mesmerized
And I just got to know

Do you ever think, when you're all alone
All that we could be, Where this thing could go
Am I crazy or falling in love
Is it realor just another crush
Do you catch a breath, when I look at you
Are you holding back, like the way I do
Cause I'm trying, trying to walk away
But I know this crush ain't goin away, goin away

Tried as I might, I could not hold the urge of having a PSP any longer. Last Sunday, I bought a ceramic white PSP, complete with 4GB of memory card containing massive games (picked by myself) like Final Fantasy VII Crisis Core, Disgaea, Brave Story, Dragon Ball Z Another Road, Tales of the World Radiant Mythology, and some puzzle games.

I never thought the graphics of PSP games would be this good, some games like Crisis Core can even match the graphics of PS2. Combined with great RPGs (my favorite genre), my PSP immediately becomes the one I play every night, leaving my NDS a little bit deserted. I still love NDS, but since for now there are no great games in it (I'm not really crazy for Final Fantasy IV, though it's a good game), PSP must be prioritized for now. At least until September when Dragon Quest IV and Disgaea (yeah, I wonder which version will come out on top) will be coming up for NDS.

Enough about games, my thesis presentation is due next week. I'm getting more and more nervous with every passing day. One of my friends has passed (he got C), so I'm happy for him and a little bit boosted by the fact he's passed. I'll just keep my thoughts positive all the time, I'm sure it'll be fine.

The music I've been hearing lately is Ryan Tedder unreleased songs. They are really good, although most of them were written about 5 to 6 years ago. Still, I do get a little bored after listening to it about 20 times or so, although a few tracks do not bore me at all. I'm looking forward to albums from two David's from American Idol 7, Kelly Clarkson, and Mcfly deluxe album, all due for this year.

What's Going Down on August

July's gone, August's come. So much has passed, yet so much more to come.

First of all, my birthday's coming up on August 4th. Not much to expect, birthday's never really special for me. I'm gonna turn 20 this year, and I hope my twenties is gonna be a hell lot of fun. Though sometimes I feel that I could've and should've been or done what I want to, I'm still very much happy with how my life turns out. Hopefully in the next period of my life, I can be a better man than I am.

Second, my (or I should say, our) green table (??? is that a word? lol... it means, our thesis presentation) is coming up, my friends' on 6th, 7th, and 11th, while mine is on 15th. I'm a little bit worried about it, because I've never been good at talking in front of people. I just hope I don't look really nervous in front of the testers, since it will reduce my score, :)

Third, English Premier League will start again on 16th August. I still don't know whether Indonesia TV stations will broadcast the matches or not, though I really hope one of them will, it doesn't matter live or recorded, it's better than nothing. This season, I would like Manchester United to win the title again, since it could very well be one of the two last years that Paul Scholes will play before he retires. I still don't know what to do when he does, I may not even support Man United anymore (just kidding, but it's a possibility...who knows?)

Lastly, I really really want to buy a PSP in the near future. It could be this month, next month, or the month after the next. I'm really looking forward to playing all the RPGs in PSP, since my Nintendo DS doesn't really have a lot of quality RPGs. Though I'm still not sure how to manage my time to play both NDS and PSP. I think that's one of my big concerns when I consider to buy a PSP since both consoles have really good games in the up and coming 6 months.

Mcfly 4th Album - Radio:Active

Given away for free with copies of The Mail on Sunday on July 20, 2008, Radio:Active is the fourth studio album, the first released under their new, self created label, Super Records, for the British band, with a deluxe edition of the album available in shops in September 22, 2008, that will include four extra songs, a bonus DVD and a 32-page booklet.

Track List:
1. "Do Ya" - 2:53 (Written By T.Fletcher, D.Poynter, J.Bourne)
2. "Falling In Love" - 4:26 (Written By D.Jones, T.Fletcher, J.Perry)
3. "Everybody Knows" - 3:15 (Written By T.Fletcher, D.Poynter, J.Bourne)
4. "Smile" - 3:18 (Written By D.Jones, T.Fletcher, J.Perry)
5. "One for the Radio" - 3:06 (Written By T.Fletcher)
6. "POV" - 3:53 (Written By T.Fletcher)
7. "Corrupted" - 3:39 (Written By T.Fletcher, L.Christy, G.Edwards, S.Spock)
8. "The Heart Never Lies" - 3:26 (Written By T.Fletcher)
9. "Going Through The Motions" - 3:25 (Written By T.Fletcher, D.Jones, D.Poynter)
10. "The Last Song" - 4:51 (Written By T.Fletcher, D.Jones, D.Poynter)

My Review:
The first time I heard that Mcfly decided to seperate from Island Records and release their new material under their own label, I was kind of worried because going indie sometimes is very challenging for artists, the latest victim is Ryan Cabrera, whose new album fails to make any impact despite the quite good quality.

However, after listening to their first single, One For The Radio, I am quite confident that the decision of going indie will not kill this band. And it is proven by the fact that the single went to debut on No. 2 in UK chart, a very good achievement I should say for an independent release.

After listening to the whole album, I have to say that although the sound is heavier, it still sounds similiar to their previous albums, which is good and bad. Good because you really don't want to listen to Mcfly doing R&B or Hip Hop, for example. Bad because though some tracks stand out, Motion in The Ocean and Wonderland still comes out on top compared to Radio:Active.

The tracklist is also quite similar to previous albums. The first track, Do Ya, is a catchy track with a simple and repetitive lyric that slightly reminds me of Star Girl. Falling In Love is one of my favorites, a laid back track that sounds quite new compared to what they've been doing, though the pre-chorus somehow reminds me of one of their songs in previous albums, I don't remember the I remember, The Way You Make Me Feel from Mcfly The Greatest Hits. Compare the line in Falling In Love "Out of our minds and out of time" with the bridge after the second chorus in The Way You Make Me Feel, "Look at us now...". Very similar, if not identical. Not that I mind...

Everybody Knows feels like Sorry's Not Good Enough, Smile reminds me of Please, Please (with the repeated words of Smile, Smile, Smile), though the lyric is very constructive and easy to relate to.

One For The Radio and POV are my favorite tracks. I thought POV would be a hard track, but it turns out to be the Bubble Wrap or She Falls Asleep type, although the chorus is rockier than those two.

I expect a new version of The Heart Never Lies, but it turns out to be the original version. And The Last Song is a VERY VERY good song. Starts out slow, but suddenly builds up to uptempo rock track, reminds me of Don't Stop Me Now, but better! Although I'm quite worried with the lyric below:

If this is the last song I ever sing
Then I’m giving it everything
I’m giving it all
If this is the last song I ever play
Then I guess its time to take my curtain call

Does this mean that they are prepared for the worst if this album doesn't work? Hopefully the album doesn't flop because this is actually a good album, although not their best.

Final Score: 3.5/5
Outstanding Tracks: Falling In Love, One For The Radio, POV, The Last Song

Wanna Test Your Sense of Humour?

Tom was saying a prayer before he went to bed, "Please God, make London the capital of United States. Make London the capital of United States..."

His mother watched him, then anxiously asked, "Why do you want London to be the capital of United States?"

"Because," Tom said, "That's what I answered in my Geography exam!"


A not-too-bright candidate for the police force failed in the written
exam. Since he was the Chief's nephew, the examiner decided to go
easy on him with the oral test.

"Who shot Abraham Lincoln?", asked the examiner.

The candidate thought for a moment and then asked if he could have
sometime to come up with the answer. The examiner told him to come back
the next morning.

When he went home, his wife asked, "Well, how did it go? Did you get the job?"

"I think so," he replied. "They have already got me working on a case".


Judge: "The last time I saw you, I told you that I didn't want to see you here
Accused: "That is what I tried to tell these policemen, your Honour, but they
would not believe me."


A large notice in a shop window announced a big sale starting at 9 AM. An enormous queue had started to form by 7.30 AM.

Just before the shop was due to open, an inconspicuous little man walked to
the head of the queue. Angry women elbowed and pushed him until he was
at the back of the line. Undaunted, the little man went to the head of the
queue again.

Once more, he was shoved rudely to the back, this time with a few smacks on the face and a couple of thumps from umbrellas wielded by angry women.

The little man walked to one side of the queue and said: "If that's your
attitude, I won't open the shop at all today!"


Chemistry Teacher: "Can you tell me the formula for water?"
Student: "H-I-J-K-L-M-N-O."
Chemistry Teacher: "Where did you get an idea like that?"
Student: "You told us the other day it was H to O." (Water = H2O, sounds like H to O)


Teacher: "Jim, can you tell me which month is the shortest?"
Jim: "It's May, miss."
Teacher: "No, it isn't. The shortest month is February."
Jim: "No, miss, February has eight letters in it while May only has three!"

Music of The Month

Lately I've been listening to lots of genres of music I've never heard before. And I have to admit, they are really really good, which I didn't expect before.

The first name that comes to mind as the contender of my artist of the month is Jesse Mccartney. His new album, Departure, while hasn't been very successful, is the very definition of evolution. His genre changes. From pop rock like in his previous albums to R&B and Hip Hop. Quite similiar to Justin Timberlake, yet very different. You have to give this man thumbs up for what he's done in his music.

The second name, OneRepublic. As big as they were in MySpace, I had never heard their name. Strange, huh? Not until they made appearance in one of American Idol show that I finally got into them. Instantly, their music becomes the soundtrack of the month for me. It never draws boredom to listen to their songs.

Third, Shaun of The Dead and Hot Fuzz OST. Although they both are soundtracks and most of the tracks are only music, the albums are unexpectedly very good. I like Shaun of The Dead (SoTD) OST more than Hot Fuzz, since SoTD OST has lots of varieties in the OST and really blends into the movie. I can imagine the scene of the movie when listening to the songs. Not to mention the bits of dialogues cleverly inserted into the tracks. Not to say that Hot Fuzz OST is bad, it's just the soundtrack mostly consists of rock numbers that I think one and the other songs are similiar.

Fourth, another soundtrack. Now, it's a game OST, no, two games. One is The World Ends With You OST, that consists of J-Rocks. I had never really liked J-rocks, but the OST is really good. It grows on me the more I listen to it. The second is quite old, but remains a true classic legend. Chrono Cross OST. Not even Final Fantasy OST can beat 60 tracks or so of this soundtrack.

There, those are the music I'm listening to for this month. Of course, I listen to other songs as well, but those above are the most worth noting. I'm looking forward to Mcfly's and David Cook's new album.

First Post in June

It's been a long time since the last I posted in my blog. I was so absorbed into my new job as web programmer that I don't really have time to post.

Apart from what I thought about the job, web programming is actually quite fun. The work is kind of busy, but we're doing it in no rushed manner. When I get stuck with my job, I listen to some good music (I'll write another post about the music I listen to lately) or browse internet for a while.

Anyway, I welcome myself into the world of blogging again, lol.

Oh yeah, if you want to check my company's website, here it is. Biiiz

GSM Axis : Kartu Pendukung Setan?

Seminggu belakangan ini, gw sering banget dapat sms forwarding dari teman2 gw dan juga nomor2 tak dikenal. Semua tentang GSM Axis.

Berikut isinya:

Guys, Kartu AXIS uda mulai kluar. Uda ada di counter2 HP, uda ada yg jual. JANGAN BELI apalagi di PAKAI. Uda pd tau kan klo itu kartu SETAN??? Jd JANGAN COBA2, Tuhh Kartu PDKG GEREJA SETAN = “SIX-A” Ciri2nya: Sampulnya warna putih,ada garis warna ungu n orange. Posternya banyak angka 60. sebarin ke temen2 km semua. 1 sms selamatkan 1 jiwa.

Ada juga variasi lain yang isinya kira2 sama kayak yang diatas, tapi diakhiri dengan isi berikut:


Ada juga yang isinya menghimbau agar menonaktifkan HP selama jam sekian sampai jam sekian karena saat itu akan ada nomor 0866xxx yang akan memancarkan radiasi yang bisa menyebabkan kanker otak? Radiasi apa bisa menjalar lewat sinyal HP? Baru tau gw...

Gw nganggapnya sih sekedar sms hoax belaka. Tapi, teman2 gw dan juga keluarga gw malah kelabakan dan cukup percaya dengan nyebarin kabar ini (tambahannya macam2 lagi, di kota X uda ada yang meninggal gara2 pake AXIS), gw liatnya lucu aja

Yang lebih lucu lagi, ada sms yang bilang kalau di salah satu kota di Sumatra Utara ada yang uda meninggal, sedangkan sampai sekarang kartu Axis belum keluar sama sekali, so kok bisa uda ada yang pake?

Gw melihat sepertinya ada konspirasi terselubung dibalik ini, kemungkinan besar karena adanya perang operator saat ini. Kenapa? Karena setelah dilihat2, tarif Axis bisa dibilang cukup murah dengan Rp 60/sms dan Rp 600/ menit ke semua operator (Rp 60/menit ke sesama Axis). Walau bukan yang termurah, bisa dipastikan tarif ini membuat beberapa operator ternama kelabakan yang MUNGKIN adalah asal muasal mulainya fenomena ini...

Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney So Far...

So far, I've completed the first 2 cases and am halfway on the third case. All I can say about the game is, there are parts better than the Phoenix Wright series, and there are parts worse.

Let's start with the better parts. First, the graphics are far better than Phoenix Wright series, although still ordinary for current technology. There are now FMVs and animations that are very rare in PW series, and they look good.

Second, our rival prosecutor, Klavier Gavin, IMHO, is better than Miles Edgeworth in Phoenix Wright. Edgeworth is a great character, however since he's gone through his 'nightmare' in PW series, he becomes ordinary for me. While, Gavin, although it's still the second case I've seen him, I think he's a great character already and I think there are still secrets hidden in him. I'm looking forward to the fourth case already.

While the worse parts. Apollo, for me, is worse than Phoenix, in terms of charm, humor, and depth in character. While we know how Phoenix started to become a lawyer, Apollo still has not given an explanation about it yet. To make it worse, the Percieve system does not make sense. How can the habit only he can see when someone's lying be accepted in court? I mean, it's not a definitive proof and no one else can see it, but the witness (and the judge and prosecutor) just accepts it that the witness is lying. Phoenix Wright's Magatama is far better because we unlock people's secrets by showing them evidences.

Well, it's still early to decide that Apollo Justice is a worse version of Ace Attorney. It's still his debut game, by the way. And no matter what, Ace Attorney series never seem to disappoint me, so I still give this game a 9/10 rating.

5 Centimeter per Second theme song

5 cm per second I don't know why I'm very interested in this animated film. It's just such a beautiful story that I wanna share it to all of you. Really, if you have a chance, see it and prove it by yourself. Anyway, here is the theme song for the film. It's called One More Time, One More Chance. It is very beautiful. Download it here. Below is the translation in English and Bahasa Indonesia.

I'm always searching everywhere for your figure
Our meeting platform, the back alley window
Even though I know you won't be there
If my wish is granted, I want to be by your side
There's nothing I can't do
I will risk everything to embrace you

If only to divert sadness, anyone will do
It's likely a star is falling tonight, I won't pretend anymore
One more time, season please don't change
One more time, to the time when we were having fun

I'm always searching everywhere for your figure
At the intersection, in my dream
Even though I know you won't be there
If there is a miracle, I want to show you it right now
The new morning, the new "Me"
Even the word "Love" that I couldn't say to you

Summer memories are spinning around me
Heartbeats that have suddenly stopped

I'm always searching everywhere for your figure
The city at dawn, in Sakuragi
Even though I know you come here
If my wish is granted, I will be by your side
There's nothing I can't do
I will risk everything to embrace you

I'm always searching everywhere for pieces of you
In the shop at my destination, in the corner of the newspaper
Even though I know you won't be there
If there is a miracle, I want to show you it right now
The new morning, the new "Me"
Even the word "Love" that I couldn't say to you

I always end up searching everywhere for your smile
At the express train railroad crossing
Even though I know you won't be there
If I could repeat my life, I would be by your side forever
There is nothing else I want
Beside you, my important person

In Bahasa Indonesia:

Ku selalu mencari dirimu dimanapun
Di peron kita dulu bertemu, di jendela gang belakang
Meski kutahu kau tak akan ada di sana
Jika permintaanku bisa terkabul, aku ingin berada di sisimu
Tidak ada yang tidak akan kulakukan
Aku akan melakukan apapun untuk memelukmu

Jika hanya untuk mengalihkan kesedihan, siapapun bisa
Sepertinya akan ada bintang jatuh malam ini, aku tidak akan berpura-pura lagi
Sekali lagi, musim, tolong jangan berubah
Satu kesempatan lagi, ke waktu kita bersenang-senang dulu

Ku selalu mencari dirimu dimanapun
Di persimpangan jalan, di dalam mimpiku
Meski kutahu kau tak akan ada di sana
Jika ada suatu keajaiban, akan kutunjukkan padamu sekarang
Pagi yang baru, aku yang baru
Bahkan kata "Cinta" yang tidak bisa kukatakan padamu

Kenangan musim panas selalu mengelilingiku
Denyut jantung yang tiba-tiba berhenti

Ku selalu mencari dirimu dimanapun
Di seluruh kota pada subuh pagi, di Sakuragi
Meski kutahu kau tak akan datang ke sini
Jika permintaanku bisa terkabul, aku ingin berada di sisimu
Tidak ada yang tidak akan kulakukan
Aku akan melakukan apapun untuk memelukmu

Ku selalu mencari kepingan dirimu dimanapun
Di toko yang kudatangi, di setiap sudut koran
Meski kutahu kau tak akan ada di sana
Jika ada suatu keajaiban, akan kutunjukkan padamu sekarang
Pagi yang baru, aku yang baru
Bahkan kata "Cinta" yang tidak bisa kukatakan padamu

Ku selalu saja mencari senyummu dimanapun
Di persimpangan rel kereta api ekspress
Meski kutahu kau tak akan ada di sana
Jika aku bisa mengulangi hidupku, aku akan berada di sisimu selamanya
Tidak ada lain yang kuinginkan
Selain kau, orang paling penting untukku

5 Centimeters per Second

5 Centimeters Per Second, subtitled "a chain of short stories about their distance" is a Japanese animated film by Makoto Shinkai. It consists of 3 short stories, Extract of Cherry Blossom, Cosmonaut, and 5 Centimeters per Second.

The three short stories revolve around the main character, Takaki Tohno, starting from when he was a boy in story #1, until he became a matured man in story #3. It started in story #1, Extract of Cherry Blossom.

After graduating from primary school, Takaki and his close friend Akari Shinohara seperated. Akari moved to Tochiri due to her parents' jobs, while Takaki stayed in Tokyo. The two still wrote letters to each other though time and distance made them a little bit distant from each other. When Takaki had to move to Kagoshima due to his parents' jobs, he decided to see Akari for the last time before they would be too far apart to see each other again. They made a promise to see each other. However, on the promised day, a heavy snowstorm occured. The train Takaki boarded in was delayed time after time and it would be hours later that he got to Iwafune station where they were supposed to meet. However, Akari stayed there waiting for Takaki. The two spent the night talking until they fell asleep. When they kissed, Takaki realized that they would never be together because time and distance slowly seperates them. He got on the early train the following morning taking the bitter-feeling with him.

The second story, Cosmonaut, is about when Takaki was in the third year of senior high school in Tanegashima. Kanae Sumita, his classroom, had a special feeling toward him but was too afraid to express her feeling. She sometimes observed that Takaki is always staring off to the distance, as if searching for something far away. At last Kanae understood that Takaki was searching for something that she could not offer.

The third story, is in 2008. All three characters have gone seperate ways. Takaki is now a computer programmer, and Akari is getting married. One day, he is taking a walk and notices familiar-looking woman at a railroad-crossing. When he looks back, a train comes and cuts his view. He waits for the train to pass but the woman is not there anymore. Giving a smile, he turns around and walks on with a better feeling.

I don't know how to express how good this film is. You just have to see this film to know how good this is. The theme song is very good too and is very relevant to the content of the movie.
