Bohemian Rhapsody – Queen

Oh wow, I’m just speechless when I saw this guitar rendition of it. It’s pretty darn godly.

I usually don’t embed two videos in a post but I’m going to make an exception and put 3. Because it’s so awesome.

I think this guy is… cooler.

But I’m a creep.

Plug in your earphones, close your eyes and listen.

Official lyrics (he improvised)

When you were here before
Couldn’t look you in the eye
You’re just like an angel
Your skin makes me cry
You float like a feather
In a beautiful world
I wish I was special
You’re so fucking special

But I’m a creep
I’m a weirdo
What the hell am I doing here?
I don’t belong here

I don’t care if it hurts
I want to have control
I want a perfect body
I want a perfect soul
I want you to notice when I’m not around
You’re so fucking special
I wish I was special

But I’m a creep
I’m a weirdo
What the hell I’m doing here?
I don’t belong here

She’s running out the door
She’s running out
She runs runs runs

Whatever makes you happy
Whatever you want
You’re so fucking special
I wish I was special

I teared when I listened to this. So I thought, he deserves more than just a post of the lyrics.

One step closer to improvement

Fuck yeah I figured caption out!

I finally figured out how to put captions! Sorry I had to say it twice because I was so frustrated when I couldn’t do it last time. Since I was always using Windows Live Writer.

Now, why is it important? Isn’t it obvious? It makes it look prettier.

make up

Women are wizards and make up is their magic

“You know how much people are willing to give for pleasing aesthetics.”

Here’s to a better reading experience!

Alright, the point of this post is that, I’ve started going around reading other people’s blogs. The ones on freshly pressed (the home page of WordPress). So the quality are, higher. After reading quite a few of them. I feel a little childish somehow. The difference in writing is really worlds apart.

For example, take a look at this post about Being a (Semi-) Professional Geek.

It’s a pleasant read. I guess that there are some things that can only be learnt with age. All the blogs I’ve read are so.. matured. Reading back on mine, I can’t help but feel like, I’m not an adult yet.

I’m feeling contradicted right now.

Although I want to be as good of a writer as them,
I do not want to lose my current style of writing.

Then again, who said that I can’t be as good as them if I keep this up? I guess I’ll just have do the best I can and take writing a little more seriously.

For the moment, I’ll roll around my bed in glee for discovering the caption function.

I am so jealous of this guy’s talent.

Like dude. That is just.. really unfair. Well, I don’t really have the mood to take the time to draw these days. I should probably find a day and do it.


Chalet and Sony DSC-HX9V review

So I’m back in my warm and cosy room again. And I can take my time to write this post out.

So.. first off. The chalet was… well, pretty boring to be honest. Because I haven’t recover yet so I can’t take part in much of the activities, and that we really didn’t do much anyway LOL.

Okay, this post will primary be on the camera. Let’s start by saying what I’m impressed about.

  • Low light pictures
  • “Bokeh” effect
  • Video capability

The low light really blew me away. Like, let me show you the actual image in 100% crop. The vending machine on the left

DSC00067

My mouth literally went Surprised smile It’s really pretty amazing for a compact. And for the bokeh, I’ve demonstrated in the previous post. The software is more intelligent than I expected, even though it doesn’t work sometimes. Still, when it does, the result it produces is stunning.

DSC00051

As for the video… I recorded a few in 1080p and it’s.. kind of a pain to upload those. Cause a 40sec clip is 133MB (recorded at avg 28mbits/50p). Still, all the reviews were right, this is the first time I’ve ever handled a camera which it’s video capturing is better than the image. Go search Youtube for some of the samples and you’ll get what I’m saying.

Now for the down parts.

  • The image quality doesn’t really blow me away
  • There is no Aperture priority mode

And… that’s about it.

I mean, the quality of the image is GOOD, it just didn’t make me go WOW. Still, I still haven’t tested it inside out yet. Only taken a rough 100 pictures. And only about… 30 is good enough for me.

Anyway, though we didn’t really do much in the chalet, and it wasn’t like exciting or anything. I still think it’s pretty fun. Because well staying overnight with your classmates doing/playing stupid stuffs/games is always better than sleeping at home (:

(though seriously fuck you guys, what’s with the LAN party in a chalet)

Alright, I shall end off with, the best image I THINK I’ve taken.

(oh wait i forget to say, if you’re looking for a really versatile travelling camera. This is the one. It currently costs 550SGD)


Sony DSC-HX9V first impressions

So I finally got my hands on the compact camera of my dreams!

I’m at the chalet so I’m borrowing my friend’s laptop to post this (: So um, here are the important features for the camera.

  • 16.2 Megapixels
  • 16X optical zoom
  • Sweep panoramic
  • Full HD movie (1920×1080)
  • 28mbits video
  • Focal Length 24 – 384
  • Sensor size 1/2.33 inch
  • 9-points autofocus
  • Shutter speed 1/1600 ~ 30s
  • ISO 100 ~ 3200
  • Flash
  • Weight 245g
Here’s a sample shot of the panoramic shot.

Yeah almost all of the brought their laptops over. So I didn’t, it’s like a frickin lan party man. I set the color to realistic so that it won’t look over saturated. Of course, it would also mean that the pictures will look less dull. But that’s not important. Cause I want to have full control over the image. The less it’s processed by the camera, the more control I have over the picture!

As you can see, it’s a really really versatile camera. There is a background defocus mode that well, creates the bokeh effect that everyone loves on their DSLRs, here’s a sample shot of my friend
So well, it certainly works pretty well. But you need to be close to the subject. Oh well, so far so good. I’ll have to play around with it a little more before saying more about it.
For the moment, I’m really really satisfied with it 😀

Experience Zero Gravity

Done by the same group of people who did Experience Human Flight

As usual, it’s spectacular and captivating. Could not take my eyes off the screen when I watch it. It’s a definite must watch. Makes me feel like filming things as well. If things goes as planned, I should be getting my camera tomorrow (:
