[ 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.

As you know, a few months ago, The New Paper reported that the blogosphere is full of bacteria.
What with H1N1 being a pandemic and all, one should take proper care when reading blogs. As the saying goes, when you read a blog, you’re not just reading a blog, you’re reading every blog that that blog has ever read, and every blog that those blogs have ever read and so on.
There is only one way to protect yourself from the bad bacteria that churns within the blogosphere, and that is abstinence.
However, if your will is weak and you cannot control your unholy urges, it is best to protect yourself by increasing the amount of good bacteria in your system.
Good bacteria, once ingested, will Zerg rush1 the bad bacteria.
For this, I recommend Yakult.
Yakult is a drink full of good bacterial goodness.
Yakult was invented by a Japanese man named Minoru Shirota.
In addition to inventing Yakult, he is also known as the vocalist for the alt-rock band Linkin Park. As a solo artiste, he uses the name Fort Minor.
Bad bacteria asks “Where’d You Go?”
Minoru Shirota. Remember The Name. Drink your Yakult.
Feetnote: 1 The Zerg rush implies a “starting point” wherein two opposing sides start off at approximately equal footing. A “White Weenie”, “Plains, Savannah Lions; Plains, White Knight, Lions attack”, if you will. The bacteria melee ensuing from ingesting Yakult might not, thus, be considered a Zerg rush. Perhaps an “Operation Overlord” invasion? Discuss.
