[ red_a02 ] Shuzhen – The first episode was a lot of fun, cos it had an interesting cocktail of sexual tension and smooth fight choreography. This episode is like the awkward aftermath...

[ vermilion_2 ] YAPX – I understand that most of your stories are dialogue-based and heavy on retorts and counter-retorts. This one felt unnecessarily circular. It starts with a cool premise: a killer/villain/vigilante uses Lent to swear off something that should be second nature to him (I suppose), and then talks about a story. The link between the two (giving up killing & the story) isn’t a 100% fit. Maybe instead of “let me tell you a story”, it could be “hey, you see I even passed a guy up for death today!” or equivalent. Something to drag Lorelei into the banter and the premise. // That’s my only complaint. I’m not a big fan of dialogue-based stories, but I can make a exception for this.

[ 130204 ] YAPX – Good pace, good characters, great dialogue. The thing I like best is a combination of the three: how you build up their pseudo-relationship through all that back-and-forth exchange. Somehow, you craft a unique, strange relationship: from any one point in the story, both of them are manipulative, victimised and hypocrites - though not all at once. // On word choices, I felt you could change the word “janitor” (“cleaner” or “uncle” would’ve given a different, but more acute local flavour to it). Mostly because, it’s connotes an added level of difference through: class. Whether or not you intended it, by portraying the “janitor” and “student” you bring out the fact that he’s stuck there socially in all sense of the word. It made the part where he says he reads books during weekends completely out-of-context and weird. // Also, there’s too much “sliding” in and out of the room. Not sure if that’s intentional repetition, or just a lack of other words. // I thought that the girl’s own background is pretty compelling. Even after everything, I can’t tell if she’s speaking the truth. Because I’m all for unreliable narrators and characters, I can still find her well-thought out. But other readers might lose patience or wonder at her sudden change of heart at the final moment.

It’s Hitler’s birthday!
Well, technically, his actual birthday was a few days ago, but he’s dead now, so temporal accuracy is the least of his problems. Anyway, it’s his birthday today if you follow the Nocturne Calendar, “Fuzzy Time”.
It’s good to know that, since the defeat of Evil back in 1945, the world has closed the book on one of its darkest periods. No more genocide! No more invading other countries just because! No more nationalistic jingoistic propaganda! No more having the executive consolidate power into its own hands to create a totalitarian regime with ambitions to empire! No more secret torture camps! No more fearing your neighbour will turn you in for voicing un-nationalistic thoughts!
We’ve come a long way since 1945!
Everybody in da house, say “Heeeeeeiiii… iiiiiilllll!!!!!!!!”
In other words, the garment’s Commission of Inquiry on the Escape of Mas Selamat’s findings was released yesterday. Here’s what I understood from Wong “You Can Call Me Al” Kan Seng’s hour long speech, summarised into a few minutes on Channel 5.
♠ People Make Mistakes.
After those few minutes, I am utterly convinced that Minister Al isn’t responsible. It’s the fault of the ISD. As Anarkin Lee pointed out a few days ago, in other countries, it’s the system that runs the show, not the ministers, but in Singapore, it’s the ministers who run the show. Because you’re worth it.
In other other words, some moron is Twittering as My Master Lee Kuan Yew. It’d be cool if he could manage to actually sound like MM Lee, dropping wisdom in a condescending and morally superior manner, but no, he’s just another loser trying to get some attention by riding on the coat tails of someone higher on the evolutionary ladder. ISD (and I know you’re reading this since you developed rednano), go redeem some face for yourself by locking him up. We don’t need the Twit Lee Kuan Yew.
And we finish off with this irrelevant but well-defined picture…
Angela Merkel and Ho Ching

YODA: Anger… fear… aggression. The dark side of the Force are they. Easily they flow, quick to join you in a fight. If once you start down the dark path, forever will it dominate your destiny, consume you it will, as it did Obi-Wan’s apprentice.
LUKE: Vader. Is the dark side stronger?
YODA: No… no… no. Quicker, easier, more seductive.
