say... 'bout 2 days ago i went to an anime shop to rent some anime vcds with my chubbchubb. when we're about to leave and do the payment, i heard a song played from the shop attendant's pc, and it attracts me right away! i asked her what's the title and who's the singer--the song is in english, but from the dialect and accent i immediately n easily notice that the artist must be japanese ;p--and as soon as i'm home, i turned on my laptop, surfing through the searching engine, and succesfully found the attractive song ^^ so here it is... "closer to you" from monkey majik!

it's always on a friday night, when everybody seems to go outside
why am i alone tonight? i think i'll take my chances watching the city lights
somebody's calling me, i go up to my window, rushing but no sign
i couldn't reply, cause i'm so shy

but oh! i really want to go, i really want to show myself that i can take these chances
i just want to be the guy, who gets to be closer to you
but oh! i'll maybe never know, it's not a  tv show, i'll never get a happy ending
i don't want to say goodbye, i need to be...

closer to you, the way you look tonight gets me to ignite my heart for you
it may be denial, it's all worth the while
and all i want to do is be closer to you
i'm running out of time, i never take the chances that i'm dealt
ooh whoo ho ho...ooh whoo oh oh!

you know i run to you, but you don't even welcome me in your arms
i'm just a little bit confused, seems like we were having a good afternoon
no body's calling me, i go up in my bedroom, i'll sit down and sigh
i am ready to cry, why not cry?

but oh! i really want to go, i really want to show myself that i can take these chances
i just want to be the guy, who gets to be closer to you
but oh! i'll maybe never know, it's not a  tv show, i'll never get a happy ending
i don't want to say goodbye, i need to be...

closer to you, the way you look tonight gets me to ignite my heart for you
it may be denial, it's all worth the while
and all i want to do is be closer to you
i'm running out of time, i never take the chances that i'm dealt
ooh whoo ho ho...ooh whoo oh oh!

 
rainy days 12/10/2008
 

remember a song titled "rainy days" from bunglon's 1st album??

here we are in the middle of september
when the rain comes down again
stay inside, we don't have to leave the bedroom

where it's safe and warm and dry

i can't wait to see the sunshine
feel like chasing away the grey skies
and now there's so much more i see


you and i, we've got everything we need here

tell the world to go away

i can't wait to see the sunshine
feel like chasing away the grey skies

and now there's so much more i see

 
twilight 12/05/2008
 

i rarely watched a same movie twice in the cinema, but this year i found out myself watched "transformers" and "twilight" twice. they're both great movies anyway, but in different type, of course.

"twilight" tells a story of edward cullen--a kind-hearted vampire--and isabella swan--an ordinary girl--fell in love with each other. i don't think i'll write the plot summary here since i don't feel like it, and i've to admit that the story was quite far beyond my imagination. i didn't read the book for sure, and yet i'm not planning to ;p but at least i know how it will be til the end of the tetralogy books: a happily-ever-after ending ;) *such a spoiler spoiler spoiler*

the thing is, in "twilight", i was mesmerized by edward cullen.

why? not because he's handsome--besides he's not wearing a red robe, armor, riding a horse, and able to fight with sword like edmund pevensie does ;p teehee--but for he's the most polite gentleman i've ever seen in a movie. and thanks to him, for i'm gladly crowned "twilight" as the most romantic movie of the year--for me, of course ;)

isabella swan: you've got to give me some answers.
edward cullen: i'd rather hear your theories.

isabella swan: i have considered radioactive spiders and kryptonite.
edward cullen: that's all superhero stuff, right? what if i'm not the hero?
                      what if i'm... the bad guy?

isabella swan: i'm not scared of you.
edward cullen: you really shouldn't have said that.

edward cullen: are you afraid?
isabella swan: i'm only afraid of losing you.

edward cullen: and so the lion fell in love with the lamb.

isabella swan: what a stupid lamb.

edward cullen: what a sick, masochistic lion.

my favorite scene yet mt favorite date too! ^^

the memorable first kiss

edward cullen: that's what you dream about? being a monster?
isabella swan: i dream about being with you forever.

and finally, the prom dance...

i was a quick wet boy, diving too deep for coins
all of your street light eyes wide on my plastic toys

then when the cops closed the fair, i cut my long baby hair

stole me a dog-eared map and called for you everywhere


have i found you

flightless bird, jealous, weeping or lost you, american mouth

big pill looming


now i'm a fat house cat

nursing my sore blunt tongue

watching the warm poison rats curl through the wide fence cracks

pissing on magazine photos

those fishing lures thrown in the cold

and clean blood of Christ mountain stream


have i found you

flightless bird, grounded, bleeding or lost you, american mouth

big pill stuck going down

 
lovely zanessa 11/13/2008
 

last monday, 10112008, i watched the "high school musical 3: senior year" movie, since i never let myself absent watched the previous 2 of the trilogy, then the last one is a must ;) it was really nice seeing troy and gabriella sing and dance throughout the movie again, they're such a cute couple--in reality too! uugh i envy vanessa for this!!--and i have to admit: i always sighed each time i watched the trilogy.

for i didn't have such a wonderful 3-years-highschool moments like those wildcats...

to have that many counts of friends--real friends, not just-friends--with all the precious moments and memories to be remembered later. but it was already 5 years ago anyway ;p


my favorite song from the last trilogy is "can i have this dance?". the pictures below are the scenes when they were dance in waltz rhythm on the school rooftop, and in the end rain was poured down all over... cute!! ^^

[gabriella]
take my hand, take a breath
pull me close and take one step

keep your eyes locked on mine,

and let the music be your guide.


[troy, gabriella]
won't you promise me (now won't you promise me, that you'll never forget) we'll keep dancing (to keep dancing) wherever we go next

(chorus)
it's like catching lightning the chances of finding someone like you
it's one in a million, the chances of feeling the way we do

and with every step together, we just keep on getting better

so can i have this dance (can i have this dance)

can i have this dance


[troy]
take my hand, i'll take the lead
and every turn will be safe with me

don't be afraid, afraid to fall

you know i'll catch you through it all


[troy, gabriella]
and you can't keep us apart (even a thousand miles, can't keep us apart) 'cause my heart is (cause my heart is) wherever you are

(chorus)
it's like catching lightning the chances of finding someone like you
it's one in a million, the chances of feeling the way we do

and with every step together, we just keep on getting better

so can i have this dance (can i have this dance)

can i have this dance


[gabriella, troy]
oh no mountains too high enough, oceans too wide
'cause together or not, our dance won't stop

let it rain, let it pour

what we have is worth fighting for

you know i believe, that we were meant to be


(chorus)
it's like catching lightning the chances of finding someone like you (like you)
it's one in a million, the chances of feeling the way we do (way we do)

and with every step together, we just keep on getting better

so can i have this dance (can i have this dance)

can i have this dance


can i have this dance
can i have this dance

 
 

*it makes me remember the history lesson 'bout france revolution

this noon i was in the middle of browsing the networks while mtv in front of me showed up a new video-clip from coldplay; "viva la vida". it wasn't a nice video for me, it's just too simple... but somehow the tunes kept on rewinding in my head til now :)

i used to rule the world
seas would rise when i gave the word
now in the morning i sleep alone
sweep the streets i used to own 

i used to roll the dice
feel the fear in my enemy's eyes
listen as the crowd would sing
"now the old king is dead! long live the king!"

one minute i held the key
next the walls were closed on me
and i discovered that my castles stand
upon pillars of salt and pillars of sand 

i hear jerusalem bells are ringing
roman cavalry choirs are singing
be my mirror, my sword and shield
my missionaries in a foreign field

for some reason i can't explain
once you go there was never
never an honest word
and that was when i ruled the world

it was the wicked and wild wind
blew down the doors to let me in
shattered windows and the sound of drums
people couldn't believe what i'd become

revolutionaries wait
for my head on a silver plate
just a puppet on a lonely string
oh who would ever want to be king?

i hear jerusalem bells are ringing
roman cavalry choirs are singing
be my mirror, my sword and shield
my missionaries in a foreign field

for some reason i can't explain
once you go there was never
never an honest word
and that was when i ruled the world

i hear jerusalem bells are ringing
roman cavalry choirs are singing
be my mirror, my sword and shield
my missionaries in a foreign field

for some reason i can't explain
once you go there was never
never an honest word
and that was when i ruled the world

 
 

*title taken from paul mccartney's "this never happened before", ost of the lake house

this evening i turn on the tv right after i dropped off my brother to the airport--he went back to jakarta tonite, and there it is... i found a movie i've watched 2 years ago with him, the romantic drama starred by mr. reeves and mrs. bullock; the lake house. he said that this movie is actually a remake from an asian movie (korean or taiwan? i dunno...), so back when we watched this movie in the cinema he simply knew how's the story gonna ended.

i know that a happily-ever-after ending for such a romantic drama movie is likely a must, despite however the story goes, but watching this movie again has made me realize (again) that probably, probably there could be a miracle happen between two people. ok, maybe in this movie showed it a bit over... like the mailbox which act as the time-tunnel-kinda for both of them, for me it's quite unbelievable, but the way we'll find the right one for each one of us, in an unbelievable way?? i do believe in that ^^

later, the soundtrack of this movie keeps on humming in my head since ;p

i'm very sure, this never happened to me before
i met you and now i'm sure
this never happened before

now I see, this is the way it's supposed to be
i met you and now i see
this is the way it should be

this is the way it should be, for lovers
they shouldn't go it alone
it's not so good when your on your own

so come to me, now we can be what we want to be
i love you and now i see
this is the way it should be
this is the way it should be

this is the way it should be, for lovers
they shouldn't go it alone
it's not so good when your on your own

i'm very sure, this never happened to me before
i met you and now i'm sure
this never happened before~ this never happened before
this never happened before~ this never happened before
this never happened before~ this never happened before
this never happened before

 
TIREN vs Olivia 06/26/2008
 

*this is why i dislike indonesian horror movies

today i went back from klaten as usual, somehow i'm quite tired a bit--surprisingly for doing nothing. back then he called me right before i entered my car, asked me to go out for lunch and watch movies. there we are... standing in front of the one and only cinema in this lil' city, and actually i just lost my appetite to watch movie in a sudden. there are 5 studios with 3 indonesian horror movies, 1 indonesian drama comedy (i think), and the other one is hulk (and we watched it already). when he asked me to choose the movie, i give up. it'll be the hardest answer i ever give today, so i let him choose. we bought the tickets, having lunch (til we both deadly full ;p), bought some cds, and i accompanied him playing a racing game before the studio opened.

if it wasn't him i'm going out with, i'll probably put more effort to persuade to not watch the movie. it was horrible. just as i thought. it's about a girl initialed 'R' who is accidentaly died falling from stairs in her bf's house when she saw her bf having sex with another woman (which is later known that this another woman was already married! freako!!). the cheated couple being freaked out,  so that they hide R's body in the bushes. R's dad was very angry when he knows that his daughter died, for he was very sure someone responsible for her death. on the cemetery, he whispered to R's dead body and told her (in a very, very odd way) to stay in the world until she finds the ones responsible for her death and--of course, as usual; revenge. then the story goes... this and that, 'til at the end the cheated couple were dead--again, in a very, very odd way. based on what we've learned this past 5 years, people won't easily died that way. it was sooo cinetron-look-alike. apart from that horrible movie, on the way back home i turn on one of the cds i've just bought, and say... it was really good. a japanese (i think) female vocalist with soft voice--he said, singing our era's evergreen jazzy love songs rearranged in bossas style, and we both loved it!

...what a contrary with the movie ;p
