Woke up this morning as usual, got in the car and turned on the radio. Flipped thru the stations and noticed that every station which I listen to was playing Michael Jackson. Something must be wrong, this can't possibly be some coincidence.

True enough, after one song ended. The DJ announced that the King of Pop has passed away at around 5:30am Malaysian time. So sad.

I grew up listening to Michael. I still remember watching Moonwalked over and over and over again.
I would especially repeat the scene in the bar where he performed Smooth Criminal.

Then there was Thriller, which scared the shit out of me the first time I saw the video on TV. Especially the part where the music stops and the zombies start coming out from the graveyard. Creepy stuff when you're young.

There is so much more of course. Michael Jackson was a performer, a kick-ass dancer, a songwriter, an inspiration to many, the "Elvis" of my generation, an icon and of course..King of Pop.

Sigh, no mood to blog already. I'll just leave you with a video of Michael performing one of my favourite songs of his at the 1988 Grammy Awards. Enjoy.

Rest in Peace.
Caught the midnight screening of Transformers:Revenge of The Fallen last night and I must say that IT WAS BLOODY AWESOME!!!

I had goosebumps throughout most of the most of the movie and the movie is a good 2hour 30minutes!

I will not divulge into the details of the movie, wouldn't want to spoil it for you guys. There are numerous movie critics out there whom have given ROTF a bad review. Apparently to them ROTF is just another CGI filled money sucking(making) Hollywood movie with a crap storyline.

I honestly think otherwise, those fools probably have no idea what they were talking about. If you have seen the Transformers cartoon series and cartoon movie, then you should be excited to see a few "key" characters come to life on the big-screen.

Exciting news for gamers is that the Transformers:Revenge of The Fallen game is also now out in stores.

Here are more pictures from ROTF the movie.More than just a pretty face.
Bad-ass Optimus Prime

OMG why no updates?????

Nothing much to say, so here are some photos taken from a recent BBQ.

Microsoft recently announced the "future in video games" with it's Project Natal at the annual E3 press conference.

Project Natal is a hands-free-motion-sensitive controller system. Unlike the Wii which uses a motion-based "Wii-mote", Project Natal is totally controller free. So, if you were to kick a ball in a soccer game, all you'd have to do is to execute a kicking motion.A prototype of 3DV Systems' motion-sensitive video camera, the technology that is most likely behind Microsoft's Project Natal, which it announced at E3 on Monday.

This is very cool and all, but the question is.. will gamers abandon the traditional controller? Is this the future of gaming?
Personally, I would say NO. To me, a good gaming experience is a good "hands on" experience. If I was to be playing a racing game, I would like to have a physical steering wheel, if it was a beat-em-up game, a joystick with the conventional 6-button would be best. You get my drift.

Project Natal is very impressize indeed. But somehow, I feel it will suffer the same fate as the Wii..limited to only sports, cooking and fitness games.
