A kind of meme.
Getting incredibly annoyed by the fact that my wallet is getting increasingly lighter and wanting to get the whole exams thing off my chest, I have decided to do this meme, which is passed on by my dearest Solvene friend - Vika
, of whom I immensly enjoy chatting with.
Here it goes:
I completely abhor the utilitarian society with all its very much unneeded bureaucratic processes. Thus, I'd enjoy my own little recluse every now and then. I hide
myself by the following activities - metal music, cards, watching films, reading existenial philosophy/Dune/Spirituality and incessantly quoting Pulp Fiction. Nonetheless, people always have their way to irritate me. They will come and talk to me when I have my ear phones on, telling me something totally unneccessary. Excuse me, when I have my ear phones on, it means Do Not Disturb, unless something is life-threatening. Thank you. I have to put across a point that those orange blinking MSN message alerts are getting on my nerves as well. I come online to unwind and those blinking things do the complete otherwise. Jesus, leave me alone.
As much as you probably know Singapore is known worldwide for being its little garden city and lines of trees
along roads, but you know what? I do not appreciate them. Geez, those are getting slammed by carbon monoxide every 10 seconds, they are not happy. For trees, I really have to give my due respect to those in Norway, yes, I am an Norwegian fetishist, as said by Jonas. I am. I am dying to spend a week or two in any of the Norwegian forests, sitting beneath one old and wisened tree in meditation, beside a gorgeous fjord or lake, and just appreciate the whole scenery. I just could not wait.
What used to be a subject, art
, has taken a complete turn when I was introduced to the craft of card flourishing and philosophical writings. Breathe-taking both things are. I could not imagine a day without handling my cards nor could I fanthom a library without Nieztsche, Dune, Orwell, Satre (though I have not read him, but he's charming enough), Dostoevsky, Lovecraft and many others. Oh their words, love to me. Plus, I'd love a good film-watching/discussion with Kev, although the fact that he is leaving here on the 18th for USA long term. I sincerely hope I could maintain a platonic friendship with him, sharing and chatting about films together. Oh, I deviated from the discussion of art, yes, films, good ones are great. The imagery, the conversions, they are just good.
Never in my entire swearing life had I been labelled as absent-minded
. I do not recall a thing I lost my wallet, student pass, identification card, Joe Porper Card Clip, humour, water bottle. Never. Geez, sometimes, I wonder if I am human. Then again, you see, I am LingNemesis. I am supposed to be omnipotent and without flaws. Oh wait, I think I have lost my mind a long long time ago, seeing how different I am from my peers. Then again, I love that feeling.
Do not talk to me about concerts
, or metal concerts to be precise. I am so horribly deprived of metal concerts here, even if they bring a hundred bands like Fall Out Boy or ectera, it is not going to make a difference. I want black metal, LMAC production! Bleh. Vika calls me to fly over to Solvenia's Metal Camp, I think it's impossible, first of all, my money will be half gone, secondly, it's just plain bat fuck insane. They have bands like Cradle of Filth, IMMORTAL, Enisferum, Pain and the ''rubbing into my wound'' goes on. Sometimes, I wonder if I were still a metalhead, not attending gigs. It's terrible. =(
Little do my readers know, I love old movies
, especially those from the early 1900s German Expressionism/Noir series. I really really extremely enjoyed F.W. Murau's Nosferatu (1922), the whole feel is just plain fucking awesome. And, Max Shreck is too intense and anciently evil for the role of Count Orlock, too realistic. I have been looking for the DVD high and low, to no avail. I have to watch that on the TV screen, not from the GoogleVideo Public Domain movie thing. Plus, I loved Dracula (1931), Bela Lugosi did the best job for Count Dracula. So enchanting. I own the VCD for Dracula, and I am quite proud of it. Oh, yes, and 1945's Dead of Night, which I had the luxury to watch on Arts Central 2 years ago when they are showing it. Brilliant, creepy show, although alittle pulpy. If you are kind, allow me to include 1960's Psycho into the list. Anthony Perkins FTW!
Now, I have to agree with Vika that bad table manners
are horrible. Nothing much could be said about those. And, yes, when people ask me a question on the dinner table, I usually nod or shake my head, or I wait til I have swallowed the food, do I reply.
Now! My turn to tag others!
