To the window, to the wall!

So I stumbled upon this video at TheDailyWhat. At first, I was like, dude is he serious? I mean for those of you who don't know Get Low is a song sung by Lil' Jon and the Eastside boyz feat. YinYang Twins. So this song is full of explicit lyrics and very degrading at some point. So hence my reaction when I first saw this video.

However, Dan Henig turned this undeniably degrading song to a song boys usually sing with a guitar to woo a girl. *laughs* I really love how the people at the coffee shop reacted when they actually listen to the lyrics he's been singing really beautifully. I assume most of the people there have heard the original version. I laughed really hard listening to this because the arrangement is decent yet the lyrics are so... well you get the point.

Well, kudos to Dan Henig. Love the acoustic cover dude!

Try listening to the original version guys.

Liquid revisit.


Like liquid
Like the sea to the squid,
You give shelter and food,
Like you to this humble kid,
No bad intentions just plain good.

Like liquid,
Like my affections towards you,
Unlike solids and gases,
It flows freely and true,
without being motionless and disappear into masses.

like liquid,
Like the cloud and the sun,
You are mold from to become none,
Forms into particles of white matter,
For which you shall become tears that scatter.

Like liquid,
Sometimes it can be red,
Sometimes it can be blue,
Chemistry is so wonderful and great,
Just like my feelings towards you.

Like liquid,
You give life and important in hygienic reason,
Without hesitation without any season,
Your love for me is like a light in a prison,
It cleans my soul and kills the poison.

If you guys really follow my blog thoroughly, you would realized that I already posted this poem sometime around May. Now, I'm posting this poem again with a lil' somethin somethin.

Ok this is what's gonna happen now. I have written quite a number of poems, but I feel like I wanna put an illustration instead of pictures. But lets face it, I've been writing more that I've been spending my time on drawing nowadays. Therefore I wanted to collaborate with people who can draw while I write. Luckily, a few of my friends are awesome digital-painters/artists/sketchers/doodlers/painters etc.

I feel that collaboration is so much fun than doing things solo.

Well, for this poem, Liquid, I collaborated with my friend/co-worker Ili Farhanah. I visualized my words to her and KA-BLAM!!!! There you have it ladies and gentlemen. I'll be looking forward to our next collaboration.

Dear friends, I really wanna collaborate with you guys. Anything, poetry, comic, we can figure it out. Have fun figuring what life is about. tata~

Publish!!! *high pitch voice*

Delivery Innuendo


"Here’s a commercial we’ve just finished with Simon, it’s for Good Books which is a charity about books. Mooe did all the backgrounds, and Kwok and Djob did the animation, hope you like the large number of boobs shots, it’s my signature as a director, also I’ve done the music, which means, I’m both the dick who’s playing the congas in the first part, carefully recorded in my bedroom and the cunt who’s playing prophet in the second song.

Blinded Shallow Minded

This post is gonna be lengthy. I assure you.

I hate shallow minded people. Especially the religious type. This time I'm not holding back. Today, I logged in to my Facebook account and I saw someone's status. He was giving condolences to the people who lost their live in hurricane Sandy. In the very same status, he also said and I quote;

"how does it feel?! what you give, you get back" :)

the power of GOD :)"

Now what does this tell you? If you asked me, I'm utterly disgusted by the fact that initially he wanted to give his sincerest condolences but at the end ended up being a jerk with that stupid statement. I mean, come on. You call yourself a muslim? I know I'm not that pious but I thought Islam teaches us to be grateful, considerate, and forgiving? Where does those teachings fit in that Facebook status? None.

I'm sorry to say that I have lost my sense of respect towards this man. To me, this is just like when the tsunami hit Acheh almost 10 years ago. Many shallow minded people was falling for the tabloids saying that Acheh got hit by the tsunami because the night before, the people of Acheh had a wild party where they had sex and drank booze. It is God's punishment towards them. This could be true. But here's my argument; 

No, I'm not saying that it's not God's work. Of course it does. Everything that happens is in God's will but please, by making statements like "It's god's punishments" and what not is just gibberish. By making such statements and accusations towards God, you are making yourself look dumb. As a muslim, when such catastrophe happens, what I learned was to always be grateful and pray that you are safe, pray that the people affected by the disaster get help immediately and pray to god for forgiveness while you still can. I had an argument with a friend years ago about this tsunami issue. He said that all the bad muslims were punished by God for organizing those wild parties. So I asked him, "But they are still muslims. Why didn't God punished the non-muslims too? Why send the tsunami at Acheh which is part of Indonesia which has the largest muslim population? Why did God punished his own servants?" My friend just stood silence. I continued "How are we to convince people that Islam is the right religion? The only religion? I bet if you say that tsunami was God's punishment towards bad muslims, then those people will never want to embrace Islam as their religion. Why would they wanna embrace a religion that sends you tsunami everytime you have sinned? Might as well embrace other religions and die old and still can commit sins without worrying about any tsunami killing them." This is how I analyze the situation.

If God wanted to punish people who have sinned, why not God burned down those night clubs in Malaysia? Why does God had to hit Acheh with tsunami killing thousands of innocent people? Why? Why? Why? It's called fate. Takdir. The only thing you can do is take solace that you still have a chance to beg for forgiveness. Don't go wander around saying that hurricane Sandy was a way of God punishing America. Innocent people were killed too. Do you think they deserved to die something they didn't do? Sure you do, by making shallow minded statements.

This got me thinking, how are we the muslim trying to show the world that Islam is a religious of peace, love and compassion when muslims themselves have a hard time being peaceful, loving and compassionate.

I know this topic is very sensitive and I the words I used are harsh. I just really couldn't stand it anymore and stay silence when someone makes a shallow statements and use religion to justify it. I could be wrong the entire time I'm writing this so please, if you feel like I didn't get the irony of such shallow Facebook comment just like the above, do enlighten me with your two cents because I really want to be a better person and importantly a better muslim. Do share your thoughts. *I'm not being sarcastic*

In addition, I want to say that my prayers goes to the people who are affected by hurricane Sandy, also to all the muslims in the entire world. May you guys find the strength in each other and also have faith in God.

Terus teranglah.

Soo Wincci feat. Joe Flizzow - Terus Teranglah

Malaysia's homegrown. Joe Flizzow doesn't need any introduction. Joe is among the pioneers of hip hop in Malaysia. Soo Wincci, hmmm.. I knew she's a singer, but I originally knew her from Masterchef Malaysia. Terus teranglah kan, I really love the sound. Decent music video with a lil bit twist at the end. I like it. Plus Soo Wincci looks so mighty fine, so no complaint there.

RnB and hip hop really need a comeback in Malaysia like pretty bad. It makes me miss this old days where I would always pop Too Phat or Ruffedge cassettes just to fall asleep. However, Malaysian aren't that fond of this kind of genre. We can see Dayang Nurfaizah, V.E, Ruffedge, Zahid, Phlowtron already disappeared from the music scene. I only know a few of my friends that's really into RnB and hip hop. Yup, I know sometimes it can be depressing. So it's up to artistes like Soo Wincci, Joe Flizzow and music like this that can turn the game upside down once more.
