Just a preview of the latest Bleach episode. The top 3 Espada, Halibel, Barragan and Stark. Yeah, Espada Duo has a name after all. Too bad we still have to deal with the Ichigo vs Ulquiorra battle to settle first though.

That's gonna take another 10 episodes. :/

Potong only.

***warning! Spoiler ahead****

Now I started late with the Bleach manga and anime, but managed to catch up rather quick within the last 6 months. Early this morning, I got my hands on the online version of the latest chapter and it got my all giddy with anticipation. From the looks of it, it's starting look like the beginning of the end for the series, as the pace starts to pick up again, with Aizen pulling his trump card, without realizing that the Gotei 13 might be just one step ahead after all. I guess pictures always work better.

And of course the climax building last page.

After waiting for so long for Kenpachi's fight to finish only to be disappointed that the bastard refuses to shinkai, let alone bankai, the possibilities for the upcoming season seems endless. From Kurosaki Sr. to Ukitake and Kyoraku's twin blades, to Uruhara unleashed, to the remaining of the Espada, to the intervention of the Vizard army, it'll all boil down to the next 20 chapters or so. I guess when it's all over, Bleach can finally progress to its next chapter (which would number by the hundreds again).

Let's hope it doesn't do a One Piece though >.<

I try to escape before my shadow is fully cast.
Flying away, not bothering to notice my wings have fallen off.
A sweet scent from far, far away drifts across the street corner.
And I hear a familiar voice crying out.
How much father can we make it, with only the night wind's fleeting hopes to carry us?
The world trembles like it wants to stop us,
Taking everything away
I'm not dreaming any more,
And we haven't done anything yet, but still we'll keep going!

Tales of Two Cities.

I buy the papers daily to see if there's enough news in there to entertain me and make my RM1.20 worth it. All the while, it's been bizarre stories about incestuous twins, and giant hogs, or even dismembered body parts ( or step by step guides to blowing up Mongolian Models). Pre-election time however, put me off newspapers due to the bullshit being laid so damn thick by the pro-government media. It's a pity that I can't read chinese, cos the chinese dailies are always more entertaining, open and colourful.

Lately it's a different story. The media isn't sure which way to swing anymore. NST has thankfully taken a more neutral standpoint, while the Star still provides government propaganda, albeit in smaller doses. I've noticed a common theme today though. It's all about cracks in the establishment. Of course the Perak Governmental situation takes the front page, as expected. Which tabloid would pass up the chance to brown nose their way with the federal government by printing dirt on the opposition. However, the Star surprised me with some articles within. Umno Council supremo's statement that the NEP is possibly headed out the door is one.

And of course there's the other side of the coin, with our friendly neighbourhood keris-waver declaring that the death of the NEP would doom our society etc etc.

Oh, and my favourite for the day, UMNO Penang has the gall to state that ' We're not taking revenge by trying to persuade the federal government to cancel all Mega Projects' . HAHA! I don't believe they actually dare say that! Talk about playing dirty. Even in defeat, UMNO is completely clueless over how to score points with the rakyat. I would like to thank the Star also for placing a picture of those TWATS in the papers for all to see. At least we'll know who to run over now. :)

Oh and apparently, there's word that they wanna stir up trouble today. I suppose they feel offended to being on the other side of the fence now. STBT, and honestly, people like them make me ashamed of being a malay myself. Such pettiness really. :P *ignores shitslinging going on over in Perak*

It all returns to nothing, it all comes
tumbling down, tumbling down,
tumbling down,
it all returns to nothing, I just keep
letting me down, letting me down,
letting me down,
in my heart of hearts,
I know that I called never love again
I've lost everything
that matters to me,
matter in this world

Yeah, they're just not learning are they? This statement here by this Champion of his race has got to be one of the most un-muhibbah thing ever. Hell, someone should slap the sedition act on him! Why does he have to incite the people just because 2 parties decide to work together to form a new state government? That's like the bully telling 2 kids of different races or religions to not play with or help each other JUST BECAUSE HE DOESN'T GET TO!

Race based politics is the thing of the past. True, people like this will keep on pimping the race card, but the people know better now. The differences between them and you mistar MCA is that when the Mat Rempit rednecks lynch you, the people who you badmouth may actually be the ones that come to your rescue. You on the other hand would spread your cheeks and take one for the team.

I'm the trouble starter, fuckin' instigator.
I'm the fear addicted, danger illustrated.

I'm a firestarter, terrific firestarter.
You're the firestarter, twisted firestarter.

p.s. I guess he's gonna try building castles in the sky now eh? RIP Zak. STBY.

Dust In the Rain.

Turns into mud on the ground. The intensive groundwork done over the past few weeks have finally paid off. BN is left severely wounded after the latest election with major casualties taken by its race based component parties. The flagship component, UMNO, took minimal losses however, with those that lost were, well, asking for it (GOODBYE ZAM! US MONKEYS WILL MISS YOU!). Now why did all this happen? Bad timing? Racial tension? Blown up models? Inflation? How bout we go with, All of the Above?

Nah. The main reason is that the BN lost track of the ones that matter. The people. The rakyat. Us. They got arrogant in their ivory towers, and believed too much of the bullshit that their spin doctors fed us (and them). The people of Malaysia have mentally matured throughout the past 30 years. You can't treat us like children whenever we question things. I'm sorry but spanking us and sending us to our rooms might have worked back then, but definitely not now.

When the news started filtering in that Penang was lost to the Opposition around 8.15 p.m., all national media could afford was screening BN results, rather the same results, over and over for 3 hours non stop. By then Kelantan was secured by PAS, Selangor and Kedah had fallen and things werent looking too good in Perak for BN. And the country already knew about it, but was waiting with smiles on their faces for the 'official' word to arrive. And now they wanna do a post mortem about what happened.

It's simple really.

They failed to care about the rakyat, the 90% of Malaysia that put their trust in the goverment. They called us bloggers liars and monkeys. They assumed that rural people didn't know how to get on the internet, and if they did, all they used it for was to get to kampungchat or surf for porn. They put people who weren't qualified in positions that embarassed the country. They insulted NGOs and said we're GOOD compared to Nigeria. They did whatever they wanted, and even chose to try to sidestep the need for the Agung. I mean, WE'RE A FEDERAL MONARCHY FFS! And they amended the country's constitution more than 600 times! In 50 years! Sorry but I don't think our founding fathers fucked up that badly now did they?

The BN doesn't need a post-mortem. They just need to take off their rose tainted glasses and see the country for what it is. Ironically, all the propaganda that was spewed out during the elections seemed to only take effect on them and their supporters. They refused to see the signs, dismissing them as just a flash in the pan. Shouldn't opposition ceramahs that draw 10,000 people worry them? It seems the only party that saw it coming was Gerakan, and poor uncle Koh is the only one of them MAN ENOUGH to offer to step down from his position as head of Gerakan. Meanwhile, we still get statements like this about our 'beloved PM' and this about Sammyboy.

The BN just doesn't get it do they. So much for rebuilding. So much for learning from mistakes. So much for attaining wisdom from adversity. It's not about too many new faces. It's more like too many OLD ones. They've already been bitchslapped by the rakyat and lost 4 of their most developed states. Do they need their honeypots taken from them also? WAKE UP YOU SMUCKS! Out with the old and in with the new already. We almost caused a revolution. That doesn't mean it's still not gonna happen if you don't start fixing the country.

The rakyat has spoken. It's time for the goverment to listen. Until then, I'll be flying red rockets and balloons around. :)

99 dreams I have had
In every one a red balloon
It's all over and I'm standin' pretty
In this dust that was a city
If I could find a souvenier
Just to prove the world was here
And here is a red balloon
I think of you and let it go
