aku bercakap seorang diri ... lagi.


aku terasa bergerak seperti bulan dan matahari
tapi aku bukan bulan dan juga bukan matahari
aku mencari titik api
aku laksana resi
sendiri tak bertepi
aku bergelut dengan api
ditemani haba dan pikiran berapi-api
benarkah aku manusia perang?
mata tembus pandang,
jiwa bergambar pedang dibungkus baju kemenangan.
Ataukah aku batu karang?
diam menahan angin dan gelombang pasang?

tidak!

Aku pelukis khayangan
Aku melukis sendiri
meracik warna seorang diri
di belakangku pembuat batu mengawasi
di sampingku pemahat kayu teriak:"dungu".
Aku tak peduli
Lukisanku belum jadi.

...


aku memenuhi janjiku untuk menjadi salah satu bahagian kehidupan kecilku
aku menuangkan ilhamku untuk menjadi pelayan dalam waktu
dan aku tak pernah terpaksa untuk itu.

Di Bawah Langit Yang Sama.


di bawah langit yang sama
kita melangkah dengan kaki
yang mulai lemah.

sepertinya pengembaraan kita
terlalu jauh dan sarat
dengan harapan
yang tak pernah tunda
suntuk kita wujudkan.
atau mungkin kita memang tidak pernah tahu di batas
cakerawala mana pengembaraan ini akan kita padakan.
sementara bendera-bendera yang
kita kibarkan semakin kusut
dan tak kuasa lagi bertahan pada warnanya.

sementara kelelahan
semakin akrab pada kobaran api yang kita nyalakan.
di bawah langit yang sama mungkin
kita tidak pernah tahu tentang apa yang kita dambakan.

Kau titipkan padaku sebongkah kesedihan untuk kujaga,
yang dengannya kulalui malam-malam,
sementara di balik pintu itu menghilang dan entah bila kembali mengambil
...lumrahmu itu.




Selamatlah kita bersama di bawah naungan kesedaran dan kesabaran

Star Wars Episode III : Revenge of the Sith Trailer Description!



For each of the past two prequels... it is provided full on descriptions of the trailers for the films. The tradition now continues with the final Star Wars movie ever, Revenge of the Sith. If you want to draw out the excitement, check out these descriptions below. Today is no different from those magical nights of the past - here's the Episode III trailer description!

SPOILER WARNING!
The first half of trailer consists of ... ( spoilers ahead!!! ), a familiar voice over with Alec Guinness. Fans will love to hear him speak his monologue to Luke from A New Hope about "Jedi Knights always being the guardians of peace." As we hear these familiar phrases, they've intercut shots from various Star Wars episodes, excluding Episode 3. Only when the monologue ends with "Vader was seduced by the dark side of the Force" about 40 seconds into the trailer do we see the face of Anakin. He is partly covered with dark hood, looking positively evil.
This is followed by the shot of erupting volcanoes, then some sort of volcanic field with crab-like creatures and then darkness, all accompanied by Vader breathing.
Then the following is heard:
Sidious: "Lord Vader..."
Vader: "Yes?"
Sidious: "Rise."
Then we see Anakin in full Vader gear rising on some sort of operating table to which he is chained. The rising is slow and is intercut with shot of various Star Wars main characters. When the table has fully risen so that Vader is basically standing upright, the meatiest part of trailer begins, with many, many shots from Episode III. Most of them are very, very short - this will be something for freeze-frame fanatics to analyze.
The ones that stuck in my memory:
Dozens of Wookiees on some sort of floating platform.
Padme with signature Leia hairdo.
The Tri-Fighter, aka the precursor to the TIE fighter with three curving wings and guns mounted between each wing. They shoot red lasers.
The ARC Clonefigthter, aka the precursor to X-Wing, with three wings on each side.
A gigantic starship being sprayed by streams of something that looks like dense acid.
The trailer ends with the title "THE SAGA IS COMPLETE - MAY 2005"
and ... (end spoilers) is about 100 seconds long.



I've been told that all of the music is edited from previous Episodes, featuring Darth Vader's Theme prominently. I am pumped about this, but have to admit this is quite a surprise to see this key moment this early in the waiting. All fanboys are sure confident about this one- that's a good sign! Reaction is running strong in the spoiler forums. Enter at your own risk!


p/s : oh, selamat berpuasa semua.

All deaths are sad, but the news that Christopher Reeve, the actor best known for playing SUPERMAN, died on Sunday of heart failure, was just a shocker! The Associated Press has written a piece on his passing, which you can start reading below :


BEDFORD, N.Y. (AP) — Christopher Reeve, the star of the Superman movies whose near-fatal riding accident nine years ago turned him into a worldwide advocate for spinal cord research, died Sunday of heart failure, his publicist said. He was 52.

Reeve fell into a coma Saturday after going into cardiac arrest while at his New York home, his publicist, Wesley Combs told The Associated Press by phone from Washington, D.C., on Sunday night.

Reeve was being treated at Northern Westchester Hospital for a pressure wound, a common complication for people living with paralysis. In the past week, the wound had become severely infected, resulting in a serious systemic infection.

"On behalf of my entire family, I want to thank Northern Westchester Hospital for the excellent care they provided to my husband," Dana Reeve, Christopher's wife, said in a statement. "I also want to thank his personal staff of nurses and aides, as well as the millions of fans from around the world who have supported and loved my husband over the years."

Reeve broke his neck in May 1995 when he was thrown from his horse during an equestrian competition in Culpeper, Vancouver.

No plans for a funeral were immediately announced.




" The virtuous spirit has no need for thanks or approval. Only the certain conviction that what has been done is right. Develop such conviction in yourself, Kal-El. The human heart on your planet is still subject to small jealousies, lies, and monstrous deceptions. Resist these temptations as you inevitably find them - and your ethical power will then properly outweigh your physical advantage over others... to discover where your strength and power are needed - but always hold in your heart the pride of your special heritage. Your being is both separate and your own , but I have caused your earthly presence and must share responsibility for your actions."

- Jor-El to Kal-El in 'SUPERMAN THE MOVIE'; script Revised by Tom Mankiewicz, Directed by Richard Donner.

' Mengikhlaskan Hujan Turun Malam '


aku temui runcing cahaya yang berteduh, tidak mahu masuk ke dalam rumah. Meski jendela terus saja terbuka menerima cuaca namun segantang harapan lambat berpijar; mengakar-akar mimpi yang tawar --- “siapa yang percaya, jika esok matahari tidak lagi singgah?” ...

tanya : suatu ketika maka aku harung sendiri pertemuan diri ... berharap akan jadi tunas muda, menulisi segala luka, sampai mimpi kembali terjaga jendela itu adalah sebuah ruang di mana dapat ditemui lembar-lembar cahaya. Jatuh di atas diri yang memucat seperti daun yang kering meminta hangat dan rangkai, sajalah kata-kata yang lama baur supaya kenangan tak lagi hambur kerana setiap ratapan dijendela selalu saja merasa ada yang terkubur.

... suatu hari nanti.



Tentang jiwa yang terluka, tentang kejujuran, keinginan dan impian pada kehidupan mata air yang mendatang. Seperti … GETAR JIWA MERONTA !

I'm always impressed by people who display on their websites or blogs ( ... if you will ); proudly, the bizarre things that other people had typed into search engines in order to get to their site. Occasionally they stumble into the area of extreme surreality or dangerous 'surprises', not to mention really bad spelling. And this is amusing or interesting. So every now and then, when I remember, I go and look at the sort of backstage information about a website area, and try to make sense of it. And, almost two years on, I still haven't posted any amusing search engine results up here. This is because there haven't been any. You'll see what I mean when I tell you that the last ten search engines to arrive here did so through people searching for the following:

1. Comics

2. Movies

3. Love poems

4. Love lyrics

5. Comics

6. Neil gaiman

7. Bedtime story

8. Comics

9. Comics

10. Comics


Sigh. And that's typical, I'm afraid. It can be very interesting, being a rare-young adult (... adult ke aku ni??!) at unscheduled events and social activities, anyway. I remember how odd it was, researching for my story, and being the only grown up at MPH's or Kinokunya's kids section. It won't work, you know ... for someone else ( or will it?? )


p/s : I'm afraid this website can no longer, sight unseen --- be any less pathetic. The service that i used to 'offer' has been discontinued due to complaints from spouses and friends ... *%&^$!!!!
