Freakalicious Long Time

Posted in Blog, Drama, E-Gaming, Entertainment, Movie, University at 11:58 pm by ryushin

Felt like eons since I last posted. Of course that is some serious exaggeration over there but it does seems that way. As far as the last semester of my Bachelor Degree goes, I say there are some good and bad. Taking 3 modules, 2 of which at this point is really easy for me, probably will be for the whole semester. We’ll take 1 step at a time and see. The bonus is that I’m taking it with one of my best-est buddy, one of few whom I can talk all sorts of nonsense and intelligent issues with. Makes all the horrible 8-am lessons a lil’ bit alleviated. Oh well, something nasty happened in my 3rd module. Maybe not nasty, but something which I definitely do not take pleasure in. Why does this kind of irritating shit happens to me almost every semester. On top of those 3 modules, I actually have my final year project, which is the real deal that’s taking the piss out of me. Terrible terrible stuffs over there that stumped us.

Anyway, I am not mugging too hard btw in case all of you who dunno are wondering why I MIA so long. The usual suspects are games, dramas, movies. Particularly a game is taking a hellavu lots of time outta me. Lemme go thru them quickly. Lets start with the watchables first. Given the long period since my absence, I must say that the list below is shorter than what I would expect, or some people would expect. Mostly it is populated with good shows because well, I have taste 😀 Looking at the list, oh manz, I must have really missed out quite a number of good shows down the road that I had to catch up on, and still plenty more to go.

Dramas
诱情转驳 (2010)
大丫鬟 (2010)

Movies
苏乞儿 (2010)
Zombieland (2009)
Ghost Rider (2007)
The Lookout (2007)
Million Dollar Baby (2004)
28 Days Later (2002)
City of God (2002)
A Beautiful Mind (2001)
The Patriot (2000)
阿虎 (2000)
Face Off (1997)
Heat (1995)

But alas a certain Dragon Age is putting me off from dramas and movies for time aplenty. Game of the Year 2009, of one of the, anyway. Totally hooked now, and still barely a third through the original game, with expansion to follow. I have already decided to use the easier difficulties to breeze thru the game for the plot now rather than use a mod to give the enemies an obscene amount of life. People who enjoy rpgs should definitely try it if you have not. Particularly to get the feel since Dragon Age 2 is coming out in a little over a month’s time! I’ll leave the Guild Wars ramblings to next time I guess, there will be a chance.

P.S. spent quite some money recently catching up with various groups of friends and having decent food. But I shudn’t go into detail bcos it doesn’t exactly captures interest, and I wanna post this before midnight. You know, this will be my final post before the new Lunar Year kicks in. My resolution is to…

Hibernation

Posted in Blog, Entertainment at 12:10 am by ryushin

Wow, I have been nearly away for a whole month. I think I no longer have the same passion for writing the random stuffs and the ‘reviews’ anymore. Perhaps it is more a case of other items drawing attention away, items that I have far greater passion in! Thus I should probably only update this when I have something of more note to share. For old fans, fret not… you will probably still know what films/dramas I indulged in.

Since the last update, I think the following is an exhaustive list of that.
Movie: The Bank Job (2008)
Drama: 徽娘宛心 (2006), 神话 (2010)

So pathetic… I didn’t watch any movies in the theatres recently. BUT this will change this holidays, like yea finally. IM2 double anyone? Hmm… anyway I have some rather interesting thought about 神话, so I guess it might receive its own glorious post in the future.

So, what have I been doing? Not mugging (not a lot at least), but playing games!!! wheeeeee…. The more pertinent one was an old Chinese game that brings back nostalgic memories. I had basically, to the best of my memory, remember that I completed one part of it, but not the expansion. So I went back to replay it, at the hardest difficulty level due to my awesomeness. 超时空英雄传说2 – 北方密使. I played the original series 2 non-expansion in primary school. Haha, yea man… there were some terrible Chinese words for me to digest, with 繁体字 somemore… Never begin to wonder where I learn all my Chinese… yea… games rox.

Mixed Bag of Updates

Posted in Blog, General, University at 8:54 pm by ryushin

I’m starting to feel the heat! I mean the amount of onslaught I will receive from all the wonderful projects and case studies that will start to haunt me now. One major accompanying crappy moment comes in the form of group formation I guess. There were some disappointments there. Oh well, time to move on, less fun definitely, but hopefully constructive work gets done at the end of the day. Well, not all groups have been formed yet, but I’m already positive that not one went according to plans out of five. How’s that for luck eh?

Before I forget this, maybe I should talk about a lil incident this morning. The first bus I was on to school just stopped in front of a traffic junction. The engine died, and revived… and died… and revived. It went on for some time and we were like DAMN. Until the next bus actually came, and we were all sent off onto that bus. Consider that I need a bus transfer to another service with horrendous time variance, it could very well mean that I would miss the next service. Yes I’m talking about 151. I barely made it in time before lesson starts today. Had it happened tomorrow instead, in which case latecomers have to submit a 1-page bonus critique of a case, you will bet how pissed I’ll be. I hope the lecturers can be more understanding that it is not always our fault to come late.

One more thing, I am running out of drafts to buffer the inactivity that will bound to come in due to reason outlined in the first paragraph. So I guess there will be a dearth of entires soon over here, in which case you don’t really have to keep coming back. In any case I noticed the visitor rate dropping since school term starts, and I don’t think it is a coincidence, even though I dunno who is reading this blog (which just seems to be endless streams of blabbering text).

Finally, I’m in the mood again, for more nonsensical chinese crap.

望遥镜中缘
期晓眸内君
相顾无非梦
一念转瞬空
无居柳絮飞
引化满霜鬓

p.s. sorry rachel didn’t know you can’t read chinese text on whatever you are using, but some things just can’t be replicated nicely otherwise

Akismet

Posted in Blog, Tech at 8:39 pm by ryushin

Ok, for those of you fellow bloggers using wordpress as well, you will no doubt know about this wonderful spam filtering service, only that it isn’t that wonderful…

To date, I have noticed some normal comments being marked as spam, most notably from my dearest friend Mr jh. But now, a comment from another person has been unsuccessfully identified as spam… much to my frustration. I’m not sure what criteria they use… but time and again, the “spam” is of the same content as a “valid” comment that eventually got through. So, I really dunno.

For all you kind people who leave messages on my blog, don’t worry if you do not see your comment appear. I will de-spam any decent comments, probably within 2 days 😀
