the Deadmau5 story

I’m assuming everyone already knows what the flyer’s about. And I’m assuming everyone also knows who Deadmau5 is. Right? If you don’t, “Deadmau5 or Joel Thomas Zimmerman, is a Canadian progressive, electro, and house producer based in Toronto, Ontario. He is known for often performing in a titular costume head which he originally created while learning to use a 3D program, which resembles a mouse head.” More Deadmau5 information on his Wikipedia page. But really, all you need to know is that he’s awesome! In epic proportions!
So anyways, here’s an email I opened yesterday.

They had their “If you’re a DJ, what would your stage name be and why?” contest, and here’s what I submitted – DJStrobe, because lights have always fascinated me. It’s also the title of one of Deadmau5’s top songs. Coincidence? I think not. My initial plan was to send in a million and one emails, but I sent that one and decided, hey, if i’m meant to get it, I will. And hey! What do you know?!
I wanna thank Juice here. Coz I thought it’d be too jakun of me to go “thank you! thank you! thank you! thank you! thank you! thank you!” in an email reply. They’re also gonna give away more tickets, as I highlighted above. Lol. So, go send in an entry and come party with me!
I’ve never considered myself one of those lucky contest winners, coz my luck’s pretty ridiculous most of the time. But yay! Finally! And I’m so excited!

April 20th

The term was allegedly coined by a group of teenagers, most notably Parker Haney, in San Rafael, California in 1971. Calling themselves the waldos, because “their chosen hang-out spot was a wall outside the school,” the group first used the term in connection to a fall 1972 plan to search for an abandoned cannabis crop that they had learned about. The Waldos designated the Louis Pasteur statue on the grounds of San Rafael High School as their meeting place, and 4:20 p.m. as their meeting time. The Waldos referred to this plan with the phrase “4:20 Louis”. Multiple failed attempts to find the crop eventually shortened their phrase to simply “4:20”, which ultimately evolved into a codeword the teens used to mean pot-smoking in general.
So, Happy 420 fellow green babies! Time to toke up.

Coz I’m just Freaky like that!

More photos. In celebration of my blog turning 3!
And also because I love my readers :)
I want to experiment with photography now. While I still have a DSLR to use. Although these photos were taken by my run of the mill Sony cybershot something. I don’t know how to time DSLRs. Can they be timed in the first place? And if they can, how do you get them sitting nicely sideways. You know, if you don’t have a tripod. Or do you camwhore using a remote?
Anyhooooo. I’ve always enjoyed taking photos, but I need a hobby now so I’m looking for voluntary “models” around the KL/PJ area :) Drop a line by here or on FB if you’ve got some free time on your hands. I promise awesome shots for your portfolio! Or if you don’t care about that, I promise we’d have a really fun shoot. I think I’m fun…


No, it isn’t some empty diet pill promise. It is…
Chief’s Original Bootcamp. Or Original Bootcamp’s Malaysia Corps Training. A military inspired, outdoor group personal training program that utilises discipline based motivational techniques.
I don’t know about you, but I’ve been wasting my time away, not doing anything physically productive. I normally go through what I would call an “annual workout phase”. A month or two of exercising like crazy mad and dropping back down to my ideal weight. It fluctuates like nobody’s business! I was 65kg at my heaviest, and 47 at my lightest. Now I’m closing in to 60 again and freaking out! It’s because I slacked a whole lot last year, exercise wise, and didn’t even do the usual month of workout.
I’ve heard of these bootcamp type things, and I’ve had friends go for it, but it never really occurred to me to go and register myself. It can be pretty pricey to some people. RM300 per month. That’s a whole lot more than most gym’s would ask for. So yeah, you can see why I haven’t really bothered. Until I saw this.
That’s right people! 30 friggin bucks for a month’s worth of training sessions! All you do is go to the MilkADeal page HERE. Follow instructions on the website. And once you’re done go to Chief’s Original Bootcamp‘s website and look for
It’s been scientifically designed to achieve serious results, seriously fast, no matter what you current fitness level is, so don’t worry about not being able to handle it. Or if you’re unsure, go to the recruitment page and enroll yourself for a Free Trial! Don’t have any excuses now, do you?
The trial is next week. And the MilkADeal ends in 5 days. I’ve already registered myself and a friend for it. So what are you waiting for????? Go ahead and

Facebook Chat Etiquette

There’s no shortage of ways to irritate friends over Facebook nowadays. Over-poking, updating your status every 5 minutes, updating your status with yawn-worthy things, tYpInG LiKe ThIs aLL tHe dAmNeD TiMe. Photobucket
Heck I’m sure even I have annoyed my facebook friends on occasions as well, what, with my constant page suggestions and shit. But fanpage / event invites go out all the time, and it doesn’t really bug me. Yes, I’m pretty tolerant towards most things other people might find annoying.

Most, but not all. Because somewhere in that huge-ass sea of functions that facebook offers, there is this thing called Facebook Chat. And for some reason, people have forgotten how to behave with properly. Or maybe they just stopped caring.
With the exception of an hour here and there, I have had my facebook chat set to offline from the moment they introduced it. And here is why. I can’t go 10 minutes without someone wasting my time on something completely pointless.
You : how r u
Me : awesome! how bout u?
You : good
Me : sorry, but have we spoken before? or are we silent facebook friends? hehe.
You : no
If you’re choosing to talk to someone new over facebook chat, you should put some thought into it before dropping a line by. Don’t start a conversation if you have no intentions of following through with it. I wouldn’t mind getting to know you, but if you’re being so ridiculous, I’d rather not try.
You : what you doing
Me : just stoning. and watching youtube videos.
You : ok
Me : what are u up to there? :)
You : nothing
Dude. Like, talk. Talk about yourself, ask me about myself, bring up some random thought that’s crossed your mind. Point out that the sky is bright, or that the night is dark. Anything’s better than nothing. Coz nothing is boring.
You : hi
Me : hey :)
You : can i fuck you?
Do I even need to explain that one? Deleted and blocked thankyouverymuch.
I’m perfectly fine chatting with real friends, no matter how chaotic it gets sometimes. And once in a while I have a really good conversation with a stranger. I know some of you may find it weird, but I think it’s kinda fun. I spend too much time hanging around the same people and being antisocial. Sometimes I feel like making a change. But then I get on facebook chat, and I get nonsense like that. So I guess this goes out to anyone and everyone who has thought about chatting with me. Please, please sort your shit out first.
I’m trying to give this facebook chat thing a chance. I miss talking to some friends and I’d like to be able to reconnect with them at random. Will you boring/stupid/dirty fucks leave me alone? If you feel offended, or my bitchiness has turned you off, go ahead and take yourself off my facebook account. It’d save us both some time. Yes, I know I can be pretty pissy at times. But if you’re trying real hard and I don’t reply to something you say, it’s probably me, not you. I could be either away, really busy doing something else, or in an antisocial mood. You can take your pick and try again later if you want to.
You : hi
You : busy?
You : are you there?
You : sorry dc
You : hi
You : still busy?
Okay. Sometimes it is you. And maybe, just maybe, you could take a hint and understand that I’m not bloody interested in having a conversation with you because we’ve gone down that road before and I think you fit into one of those categories above. If it makes anyone feel better, you could ignore me too if I try to start talking to you someday. I’m perfectly fine with the occasional rejection.
