Long live the Dutch! :-D

Posted by on Tuesday, 9 August, 2005

Ya know, after reading this entry on OHiNY, I actually would consider travelling on KLM again!

OHiNY

…on a sidenote… Being the mileage-whore that I am, there is no way I would travel KLM again though…. Unless UA would actually go bankrupt and throw Star Alliance into state of upheaval! 😥

Maddox beats down on bloggers

Posted by on Thursday, 4 August, 2005

yeah, this a month old, but I just found it, so sue me.

Maddoxx bashes bloggers

I especially like these two, and I shall remind my brother and sister to carefully read the following statements, again and again… hehe…

Xanga: The bottom of the barrel of blogs. It’s incredible that the user base is able to write so much, yet say so little. I have to give a bit of kudos though, considering the fact that many of the users have the reading comprehension of a bowl full of pubes.

LiveJournal: Here’s a little trick you can use to find out whether a link someone sends you is worth checking. If it contains the words “live, journal,” or any combination thereof, you can safely ignore the link without missing out on anything.

Anyway, he mercilessly bashes the whole concept of blogging, so I guess it also covers me…. oh well.

The iPod commercial – in real life!!

Posted by on Friday, 17 June, 2005

Oh boy, this is the funniest thing I’ve seen in a while…

Some guy dresses up like an iPod dancer (the shadowy silhouette figures in the current iPod commercials) and shoots a video of him dancing around in an Apple store… H I L A R I O U S !

Link here at Something Awful.

Thanks to Ad-Rag for pointing me to it.

Movie-lovers unite!

Posted by on Tuesday, 19 April, 2005

Being the movie-lover that I am, I can really relate to CRITICWATCH, a part of eFilmCritic or HollywoodBitchslap (same site, different name). What the site does, apart from having good movie-information, thoughtful reviews etc., is to inform the moviegoing public about the whoring going on among movie critics. By accepting invitation to press junkets, receiving gift baskets and whatnot, the movie studio essentially “buys” good review for their crap movies. Criticwatch lists the top “whores” over the year so you know who to watch out for. If you see a movie presented as “one of the year’s best” and that quote is by someone like Earl Dittman, Paul Fischer, or Harry Knowles – then stay as far away as you can from that movie! The studio probably couldn’t get an honest quote from anyone credible, so they were stuck with these purchased quotes!

There’s even a petition going at the moment, alas it’s not really gaining that much momentum yet. Too bad, because I really feel for their cause!

I just read an awesome article there about trailer-making there. It’s really interesting to read how cynical and market-driven the people involved in making a movie-trailer are. There’s really ver little integrity left in that process…. Apparently, it’s fair game to insert any scenes you want into the trailer, even if they never make it to final cut. I always thought it was an oversight, or some last-minute cut to the movie that the trailer-makers were unware of, but no, it’s just a question of putting in all the good stuff into the trailer, to bring the pack in for opening weekend!
