Such a great video. Something to remind us, that only the best is good enough. And the imagination is the limit!

Having a resolution? Really? The same one as last year? Or from two years ago? No this time is different right? Cause this time, you MEAN it.. Hahahaha.. This is a bloody good one, perfect timing as well.. Goodbye 2011.. It’s been hell of a ride! Thank you for the memories 🙂
Gotta buy this book!
For the longest time, I’m trying to commit myself to a project. Ideas are flowing but time is my real enemy. I can’t seem to find the time to make a realization out of my idea. I know it sounds like I’m making a justification out of my extreme procrastination (or should I say, laziness?). But I’ve been trying, and all I got is some sketches of ideas, and then I saw this..
Talking about commitment and consistency! I can’t imagine he spent 15months for each project. I read somewhere that he did it whilst doing his other work/project. Imagine all those sketching, coloring, and not too mention doing it while seating. Must have a back problem after a while!!
And he did it with only one BIC pen! How amazing is that? I wanna have a praying mat like that!!!
You know one of those days when you found new song and just can’t it out of your head? Today is one of those days for me! DAMN!
I first heard of James Blake from Entourage, that was The Wilhelm Scream. And I tried to listen some of his music, but it’s just not my cup of tea, so I gave up. Today, I bumped into Pretty Much Amazing‘s website to listen to Coldplay’s new songs, and guess what, I saw: James Blake – CMYK. Being a pompous graphic designer that I am, the title drew me in. And WHOAAAA.. The song is bloody good! His music is dubstep, some say UK garage. I don’t care how people want to define his music, all i know is I’ve been listening to it for the last one hour (and will continue to do so till I’ve had enough).
Sekarang kemana sedang kau langkahkan kaki
(And now to which path do you swing your feet?)
Mengisi lembar demi lembar kekosongan insani
(Filling pages on end of emptiness that is all too human)
Kata dan bahasa yang terucap berulang
(Words and meaningless phrases often repeated)
Hangat yang kian menghilang
(The warmth that increasingly disappears)
Debu terhembus menghela nafas
(Dust blown in a heave of sigh)
Pikirku sebuah laut
(My thought is an ocean)
Sedangkah aku berada
(Do I really exist?)

*** Hanjaya is my bestfriend’s (Hanny) younger brother. He died earlier this year. He wrote poetry in his spare time, he had stacks of books full of it. Hanny and Craig decided to make videos out of it.
Thanks to Males Banget to remind me that I still have faith and believe in my country. Someday, we will get better. So stop bitching and let’s do something!
Happy 66th Independence Day Indonesia!
