Makishimamu Za Horumon: Zetsubou Billy (2007)
マキシマムザホルモン: 絶望ビリー

Makishimamu Za Horumon

Makishimamu Za Horumon (Maximum the Hormone) is a 4-persons Japanese punk metal band, well known for their astounding ability to mix genres. it is amazing how the Japanese blends in perfectly with the english when it comes to music. their Heavy Metal genre was nothing less impressive when compared! like the english, their photographs were often taken with exaggerated facial expressions; the vocals often screaming their heads off.

they came out with 6 albums since 1999. Zetsubou Billy (絶望ビリー) was recorded as track 2 in their 2007 album - Buiikikaesu (ぶっ生き返す), which was also used as a ending theme in the Death Note anime. the song sends thrill up my spine! definitely a recommendation if you don't mind a little loudness. below is the video for sharing purpose only.

Christmas (SE f100i)

the very moment her dream shattered, she collapsed. losing control, havoc arose only too soon. suffocating, it pained her to leave without a glance behind, desperately needed a breather. returned, it broke her further by looking at his back, hunched ever so slightly in the dark. giving in, she hugged him reflectively, allowing her heart to take the lead. his slightly trembling shoulder quivered against her chest bone, choking her from within. she realized now, it hurts her more to hurt him, more than all the pain others inflicted upon her through him. this is love, n she loves him.

Christmas Trees

"i saw mommy kissing santa clause underneath the mistletoe last night .." softly the song rang in the background. stood hidden among the crowd, she imagined how sweet it would be to be hanging closely with love ones during this mesmerizing season, to be held securely in a warm embrace, an embrace so familiar it soothes even the most anxious moment n experience along the journey. truly a beautiful season to be reminded of how lucky one is, how love managed to wrap one so tight, against all disparity lurking waiting only for the precise moment to swallow the mind. with this thought, she leaned even closer against him. suffering is often a great gift, an eyeopener, n not a curse many had assumed it is.

The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader (2010)

The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader

without Susan n Peter, the younger 2 of the 4 siblings, Lucy n Edmund, were brought back to Narnia, together with their cousin Eustace who happened to be in the same room with them that very moment. rescued by Prince Caspian onto a ship, they joined him on a journey to the edge of the world. they had to rescue 7 lost lords to save Narnia, fighting against evil on the dark island. each of them were tested, their worst nightmare returned to haunt them, temptation lurking at every chance to devour them.

a change of director finally made Narnia exciting! we weren't impressed with the previous 2 sequels, n therefore didn't expect much of its third. however, the moment the movie started, we were dragged all over the deck of the ship, onto the shores looking for lost lords, fighting sea serpent, there were, literally, no time for rest! unfortunately Aslan, like the last sequel, didn't have much appearance like the first. Lucy, however, were given much more chances to present herself in this sequel, taking the spotlight of Susan. growing older from the last sequel, she was nothing less stunning than Susan, n definitely as tough!

Snacks (SE f100I)

i aint no saint, she think aloud. she too lived by her very own set of principles, her own theory of life. there are humanitarianism, utilitarianism, n a whole lot more that she cant really fathomed n get it around her head. now that she recalled, it has been more than 2 years since his last lesson with them. ah, how she wished he was here with them right now. perhaps having a solution with him, a solution which they failed to come across for the longest of time. deep down she suddenly realized, cruelty need no reason after all.

Grass (SE f100i)

when the promised thrice became once, she didn't know what to expect next. clear glass fractured part by part, extending its coverage, increasing its fragility; yet it did not strengthen any fantasy-like bond as she hoped. this is the real world, she repeatedly implanted the phrase into her subconscious, only to be hit by a wave of nauseaness. as much as she feared the unspeakable, she has no intention to backdown. knowing she had to see what lay at the end of the road, she threw a bet so big her life depends on it. perhaps it was really her life that she was betting on.

Dorian Gray (2009)

Dorian Gray

Dorian Gray, a corrupted young man managed to keep his youthful beauty eternally after having his portrait painted. however the painting gradually revealed the ugliness of his soul. he had to protect it, allowing no one to discover his secret. this is a tale of power, greed n self-destruction, n the combination power of deceit, drug n sin.

finds him familiar? this is the exact Prince Caspian from Narnia. though slightly eerie, it was nonetheless very interesting to see what beauty can do to a person. a few persuasive statements n nudges managed to brainwash him, pushing him towards a corrupted lifestyle, which eventually destroy himself n those worthy of it. it was truly a beautiful tale of karma brought upon oneself.

Beach (SE f100i)

while their eyes continued to linger upon each other, their action spoke a different language. sitting on the shore, he longed for his attention, yet he provoked further by showing that he was having much more fun with the others. his laughter echoed through the pool, shrieking n splashing excitedly only to see him disappearing around the corner in vain. as if a button has been switched off, he was instantly hushed, staring blankly into space. with a relationship as queer as theirs, it was far from simplicity, nor was there just two to consider.

Bicycle (SE f100i)

grateful with the opportunity to chill at will, where kites soared loosely up in the sky, laughters rang occasionally from the beach, n the wind gently leaving a salty sensation behind. just when things were at its peak, a steep slope was right ahead. an unexpected outburst threw them off guard, tainted the dazzling day. soon wearied from the strain, she clang onto whatever that was leftover. deep down she knew that she was far from enough to contain him.

Performance (SE f100i)

when she was doubtful, it was her who urge her forward; when she was troubled, it was her who boosted her spirit. her mind expanded every time, from the gentle strength behind her words. it had been countless times she thanked her. when she needed perspectives n support, n when she needed a listener, her tentativeness calmed her. sitting face to face after a month, she thanked her again over breakfast.

Tron (1982)


he was an arcade owner, also a hacker who digitally broke into software. while he was zapped into the digital world together with his programs that were designed to hack, they joined forces to outsmart the Master Control program that hold them captive. the film showed an earlier form of 3D world for computers, far too different from what was seen on screen these days. making the experience rather refreshing!

Books (SE f100i)

out of the blue, when a chance presented itself in front of them, she jumped at it, knowing it was only logical to do so; knowing it is just what they needed, what she waited. he, on the other hand, held his doubt, unsure what is the rush, stubbornly begged to seek for his pride n balance. urging him on, she knew it was unfair, but finding no other way around it. withholding her pain, she prayed hard, hoping if she wants it bad enough, He would grant her the wish; if she wants it bad enough, He would then give him the strength to move forward with a decision that safeguard them both.

The Library of Shadows / Libri di Luca (2007)

The Library of Shadows

its plot took place in a world where books were charged with magic n people were Lectors divided into 2 classes - Receivers n Transmitters. Receivers were able to invade n distort the mind of a reader; while Transmitters were able to influence its listener. when murders started to occur in the society, young Jon Campelli, a successful lawyer, were involved when the first victim was his father. he finds himself exposed to family secrets n new powers, leading a group of book-lovers to defend their life n sanctuary from those we aimed to destroy it.

originally in Danish (Libri di Luca), "The Library of Shadows" was a rather successful literal thriller. fast-paced, n with suspense divided evenly throughout the story, it was one of the very few books that manage to held my full attention all the way towards its end. its most impressive idea was the Lector concept; which at some point really seemed like they can be found somewhere in the real world!

Angel Beats

in a world after death, they fought for their fate n future. under one leader they gathered, to battle against the culprit that owned pre-programmed supernatural powers. given the choice to vanished after having their dreams come true, some choose to stay behind. with a rather queer plot, the anime didn't seem interesting at first glance but didn't fail to capture my attention for the rest of the episodes. not knowing what to expect for the next scene, curiosity made the anime worth anticipating.

draped herself tight with the silk blanket, trapping the heat against her body. this was when the image of the small incident came floating back into her head, replaying the whole conversation in silence. how easily a stressful life toyed with the couple, where unclear lines landed them in a mixed up confusion. bond n honesty came in handy during these severe moment, thrashing the unsought.
