Strange

I don’t know why I haven’t been updating much with real stuff lately. I click on blogger when I feel like posting an update of what I’ve done or where I’ve been instead of how I’ve been feeling about everything. Strange, seeing as how the past month or so has been anything but dull.
I would call this a period of self-discovery. Been doing a lot of thinking and experimenting with my artsy side. I’m completely in love with making miniatures now. Clay, acrylic paint and all that. Will take a picture and post that up :) I’m also working on a real post, so check back soon!

MGMT !!!

MGMT (an American psychedelic rock band) performed live on Friday at the Bukit Kiara Equestrian Indoor Arena. Guess who was there?!
Went with Shannya. Who squeezed us a way to the front.
And the boyfriend :)
So here’s a little tip. Do not get less than 4 hours of sleep in a day, then get stoned outta your mind. Then go for an MGMT concert. Not even joking. My body died on me yesterday and my mind was just doing it’s own thing.
But OHMYGOD. It was still the best concert ever!

Han Chiang College Autocross Competition

It would be ridiculous for me to be writing anything about cars. Or the competition. Coz well, it’s cars. Although I did enjoy my long hot day under the sun, I don’t think it’s something I will be doing again anytime soon. I’ll just stick with the indoor and preferably air-conditioned events for now.

The Sing-Off. Showcasing acapella performances at it’s best. Mad love. I’m hoping they’ll show the next season here. But even if they don’t. There’s always gonna be YouTube.

Synopsis
Battle: Los Angeles revolves around a Marine staff sergeant and his new platoon’s battle against an alien invasion on the streets of Los Angeles. The movies is presented as an intense real-time war movie from the perspective of the Marines. It has been described by some as “Black Hawk Down meets Independence Day”. It will be a live-action drama, showcasing the United States Marines attempting to defeat an alien invasion of planet Earth.
My review
Just like most other alien invasion movies, I was both fascinated and bored by this one. For a movie that’s meant to be from the perspective of Marines, there wasn’t much build on the characters and we weren’t given a chance to connect with them. Characters were dying left and right, but I honestly couldn’t remember any of their names and I barely even felt their absence after that. It’s not all bad though. The movie kicked ass special effects wise. Scenes of Los Angeles in destruction and alien war ships were convincing enough. Although we never really get a good enough look at the aliens.
Overall, Battle: Los Angeles doesn’t fare too bad against other movies in it’s genre. Keep in mind that all invasion movies are ridiculously stupid at some level. But if fast paced action is all it takes to get your juices flowing, then this would be a movie for you.
