February 2009


Wow it’s been a while since I last updated my blog. XD thanks to my professors who left a delinquent with no other choice but to work harder [well, the real reason is I don’t want to part with my hefty allowance that my generous father gives me]. lulz

Here are some random stories about some random craps that happened to me while I was “away”

——You don’t give flyers for wedding services to just anyone who passes by your booth.——

I was in mall to get the faulty LCD driver replaced when I passed by a cluster of wedding planner booths. Then this lady gave me a flyer for their wedding services. asjdkhajksdgajksdg!!! I just refused while smiling. I don’t look like someone who’ll get married soon or has plans of marrying, do I? And I’m 19; is she telling me I look older? is she insulting me?! lulz though most probably not. XD but giving out flyers about their wedding services to just anyone who seems old enough is tactless and funny. XDDD

——“Oh, the class is starting. I should start sleeping.”——

It’s been hell for me these past few days and I rare for me to get more than 4 hours of sleep in a day. And earlier, I said those lines during our Advanced Accounting class. I don’t want to insult my prof [we love you Prof Chinese Buddha! you’ve been doing your best to teach us and help us get good grades and we appreciate your efforts a lot. ^^] but I was soooo damn sleeepy that opening my eyes was a burden. And so I fell asleep, in front of my prof and I was sooo damn obvious. And my friends who were sitting next to me just started laughing and commented “magaling, magaling” [magaling means good]. From what I know, they also fell asleep during that 3-hour loooong class. >:P Now I don’t know how to face my prof properly next time. >.< But maybe he’ll understand. >.<

——A generous dad is generous——

Papa you’re so cool!!! 8) I was so tired after surviving my management accounting report in front of a panel of professors, so was my brother who’s busy with the system he’s programming, but then my Dad came cheering us up with a new LCD for our compy. weee! And it’s a Samsung with a sleek crystal black-red finish. <3 I hope you get another big contract so you’ll come home with a new Bravia. >:] kidding. we love you, Papa!!!

——A new Gundamu!——

Yes, they confirmed it. well, much more this was expected of them sicne 2009 is a Gundam year. banzai!!! The new series will feature RX-78-7 mobile suit — quite your old Gundam — designed by the veteran Hajime Katoki. The lead character, Hugues Couraud,  is a 32-year-old [aw so old. >.> lulz] officer in command of an Earth Federations Phantom Sweep Team — which sweeps the remnants of the losing Zeon forces. Another main character would be Sherry Allison, 24 years old, a test pilot but also joins the field group. From the opposing side, Zeon, is Eric Blanke a 20-year-old officer born to a prominent family in Zeon. He is leading the counteroffensive unit named Invincible Knights to avenge the Zeons’ loss to the Earth Federation.

The story is set in 0081 of the Universal Calendar, one year after end of the One Year War. While peace and order are being restored to the world, small-scale battles still crop up here and there due to Zeon remnants continuing to offer resistance. A veteran Earth Federation officer assigned to mopping up the remaining Zeon forces, and a young off

icer executing a top secret operation to revive the Zeons, cross paths on this new battlefield. [Source: ANN]

Just some interesting vids I stumbled upon while lurking in Nico Nico.

watch out for Tsukasa’s solo part; it’s a win! XD

hmmm… a good original video for this vocaloid song.

now that reminds me of Tissue-hime. (>^o^)>

She’s a bassist who has recorded a lot of videos showing her do several songs like God Knows. Quite your decent bassist and some boxes of tissues. oh, she’s a Nagato fan so expect her to be wearing Nagato’s seifuku in all her vids. XD Here’s one:

You can find Tissue-hime’s videos here: http://www.nicovideo.jp/mylist/3751694

I’ve already told you in my previous post that I’m a WMP-hater. lulz and maybe by now, you know that you can extend WinAmp’s functionality using plugins.

here are two of the many plugins for WinAmp which I find cool:

Advanced mIRC Integration Plug-In [AMIP]

Website: http://amip.tools-for.net/

Download: AMIP for WinAmp 2.x and 5.x

If you’re a lurker in IRC, you must have seen some users show what’s playing in their music players, like this: [click to enlarge]

You can announce what’s currently playing in you’re WinAmp player to any channel in IRC, using AMIP.

The site provides intallation instructions. Should you have any other problems with scripting or announcing, I can help (a little perhaps). XD

Yahoo! Messenger Now Playing

Website: http://numedecod.ro/Yahoo_Messenger_NowPlaying/

Download: go to the website.

now, you are loving WinAmp but then you want to share what you’re listening to your Y!M buddies, and you’re using Yahoo Messenger version 8.x or 9.x so the old Y!M plug-ins for WinAmp won’t do the work… well, grab this one. ^^

Enjoy~ ^^

Thank you mistah_bullshido-san for sharing this file!

I had to make the other post, where mistah_bullshido-san shared the link, private coz it has served its purpose, so I have to make this new one. I hope you don’t mind mistah_bullshido-san if I made this post.

Here you go, the download link to our much awaited full version of Trust You by Yuna Ito [Gundam 00 season 2 second ED]

– gomen, I can’t find a 320. 256 is the best that I can find in the leech sites. let’s just wait for the release of the single for the 320 and the FLACs.

EDIT~

everyone, give mistah_bullshido a hug. heehee.. for providing the direct download links. ^^

Lyrics:

Hana wa kaze ni yureodoru you ni
Ame wa daichi wo uruosu you ni
Kono sekai wa yorisoiai ikiteru no ni
Naze hito wa kizutsukeau no?
Naze wakare wa otozureru no?

My friends have been asking me why I still prefer to use WinAmp after all the “coolness” of the new Windows Media Player (WMP) release. I’ve been using WinAmp since my Dad bought me my first computer. oui oui

I say:

1. It’s easier to organize music files with WinAmp. I don’t like the extravagance of the new WMP’s library layout. gah, having almost 500 files in your playlist or library would render that WMP’s extravagant layout useless and annoying.

2. It’s easier to browse and stream music with AOL music through WinAmp.

3. It has a web browser.

4. It can play FLAC, WMP can’t. (most of my music files are in this format so it’s definitely WinAmp for me). you don’t know FLAC?

FLAC Guide for Idiots

(Free Lossless Audio Codec) An audio compression technology from the Xiph.Org Foundation http://www.xiph.org). It is a royalty-free codec used to compress CD audio files to at least 50% of their original size (2:1 ratio). Unlike MP3, which provides much greater compression but eliminates content, FLAC restores the music to the original PCM 44kHz, 16-bit audio stream of CD audio.

5. I can install plug-ins, like AMIP which allows its user to announce what’s he/she is listening to in IRC or even in a webpage. hmm… more like Mozilla and its add-ons.

6. ooh, one more thing and probably the best thing about WinAmp, I can enjoy a lot of animu WinAmp skins or even make my own [skin]. There are animated free-form ones, just like the animated Hatusne Miku skin I got from dango.  Imagine Hatsune Miku, singing while playing your fave animu music, isn’t that fun? she’s singing, really. XD  here a screenshot of my WinAmp in the Miku Miku skin. Click to enlarge. ^^

oh, you want it too? first get yourself a WinAmp player by downloading it here:  http://www.winamp.com/player

Then download this Miku Miku skin and put it in the skins folder of Winamp [C:\Program Files\Winamp\Skins]

http://www.mediafire.com/?ondewjviwir

Credits would go to anonymous. gomen. dango just found this skin in a Japanese site. But whoever made this skin, domo arigatou gozaimasu. /orz

or this hot Hatsune Miku skin [credits to murderprincess]

Download link: http://www.mediafire.com/?4yonzkjzj0j

and this cute Lucky Star skin [credits to murderprincess]

Download link: http://www.mediafire.com/?a2kwjrznmwb

There are a lot of animu winamp skins in the internet, just google them OK? ^^ Or if you know how to fo scripting, you can make your own skin. there are  a lot of tutorials you can find online.

If you recall my previous post about the tale of the tilapias we bought, during the same day, 2 groups of strangers called us “anak mayaman” [rich kid] while we were buying stuff in the public market — you know when you feel weirded out and they are talking while looking at you. Maybe because we casually speak in English when talking to each other — err… we’re doing that to gain better command of the language. And maybe because my brother blurts out French words/phrases from time to time and I just happen to understand “oui,” “non,” “merci” and “si’l te plait.” Or maybe this has to do with my brother’s hottie-ness. hmm… *looks at nii-san* *immitates Sunako of Wallflower* OMG you’re too bright! *melts* AHAHAHAHA! (>^o^)>

Lesson: you don’t speak English nor French while in a public market. oui… oui…

————————————————————————————————

I woke up reading an SMS from my ex which basically ruined my day. But realizing my nii-san would be in school the whole and that I could have the net for myself while my French-speaking-net-gaming-addict big brother is gone, I got all genki-genki again. nyuu~ yes, my brother is the reason why I’ve been on a partial blogging hiatus for a week already. He’s basically playing every minute he’s in this house.

Lesson: Men are pretty influential.

————————————————————————————————

Before lunch, I received a call from my adviser/teacher in high school. She thanked me for the UP shirt I bought for her and other random stuff of the past. And she said something like “I am not someone who can move mountains… blah blah blah” It sounded familiar so I was trying to fucking remember any book I read where she could possibly quoted that from. then. . . . . . . . . ROFL. oh you dear teacher. you quoted me in my valedictory address. ahahahahaha! So she listened to that crap, four years ago. She the told me she was actually rereading my speech that time when she called me. :O

Lessons: [1] Be careful of what crap you put in your speeches coz you might regret how those lines struck/affected your listeners. [2] She’s [referring to my teacher who called me] not just a fan of my gorgeous mom. (>.<)

————————————————————————————————

Then in the afternoon, I watched Clannad After Story episode 17. I was expecting a lighter episode after episode 16’s heeaaaavvvy drama. T^T But fuck, Tomoya is being harsh to Ushio-chan. T^T why you do that, Tomoya? whyyyy? You should treasure Ushio-chan moar! [anyway, he’ll come to being a good dad in a few episodes]

Lesson: Tomoya, undoubtedly, you’re envied more by a lot of lolicons men after having Ushio-chan.

————————————————————————————————

And finally, some nice lulz from my favorite animu, Gundam 00, with its recent episode [18].

While everyone is like…

Allelujah: Marie
Marie: Colonel
Saji: Louise
Louise: Saji
Tieria: Veda

Setsuna goes…
Gundamu!

wwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww!

Which reminds me of this 4koma:

Photobucket

Earlier I went to the public market with my big brother. And we found this store selling some fresh tilapia — so damn fresh that they’re actually [still] moving… errr… yanking. *shiver* they were all suffocating — gasping for air, laborously *redundant*. and when my nii-san finally got two big ones and put them in the weighing scale… a moment after, oho, they jumped off. hmm.. they must really hate being cooked. uhuh.. Then we had them cleaned  — had the gills and other organs removed, — but guess what, they’re still moving. We had the others chopped, but the parts are still moving. T^T A few minutes after, they’re still moving. still moving. still moving! still moving!!!  (>.<) I was grossed out and made my nii-san carry the plastic of semi-alive Tilapias. Maybe not grossed out, I just can’t stand the atrocity of witnessing them die slowly. T^T

Oh, if you don’t know tilapia, it’s this fish.
