Lamborghini Murcielago LP640 is cooler than Audi R8

The Joker

Now I want to make it absolutely plain that I was overall quite disappointed with Ironman. Prior to watching it, reviews everywhere claim “it’s the movie of the year”, “better than Transformers”, etc. I’m sorry, I reckon if you ask a 3-year-old “Which is cooler? A truck which can transform into a giant talking robot and fight to protect humanity or a hero inspired by tinman in Alice in Wonderland?”, he/she’ll tell you the former. The Ironman was considered great by many becuz the hero drives an Audi R8.

Big deal. Batman drives the batmobile and Lamborghini Murcielago LP640. NOW we have THE movie of the year, ok? And of course, there’s The Joker, played brilliantly by the late Heath Ledger. Honestly, Ledger wasn’t in the movie at all. I could only see The Joker in the movie. Borrowing his quote, why so serious? Now we have a serious contender to Darth Vader as “movies’ best villain ever” poll, agree?

I’ve been addicted to the soundtrack lately. The dark theme brought by Christopher Nolan is just fitting at dark times like now with excessive politicking in Malaysia and I see many despair surrounds me.

Al-fatihah to Mohd Ariff Ahmad Fuad

Filed under: Personal — tokmoh @ 8:47 am

The news’ just in. My deepest condolences to his family and close friends. Ashraf, I pray that you will stay strong in this hard time. Your brother had been a nice guy to have company with.

By the time I reached his house yesterday, the body had just arrived after being flown from Terengganu. What an experience… a chilling one. Accompanying him to his last resting place in USJ19, it was really intimidating to watch a body that once spoke to me gently and kindly being buried 6 feet under very, very heavy, solid wet soil.

And I must note how Mother Nature knows how to tell when there’s a tragedy: the sky was dark on Wednesday evening (when the plane went missing from radar), and it rained heavily yesterday (Thursday) morning (when the body was found). It was noticeable as the sky has been bright for……quite awhile.

Now I have to write to The Star that Ariff was a Subang Jaya resident, and the other pilot is probably the one from Sungai Buloh.
