For the first post of 2014, I was wondering what to blog. At first I wanted to do a piece titled The Good, The Bad and The Ugly, but I thought Anton Casey was over exposed already and since he had left Singapore, it was better to move on and leave that ugly episode to the history books.
One of my childhood buddies had decided to close shop, well for his blog that is, see his final post at http://acroamatic.wordpress.com/2014/02/03/closing-deadpoetscave-com/
Seems like a blog is not so easy to maintain. Even my own one is very rarely updated with new blog postings.
But I discovered a series of cool HD videos on youtube. Excellent videography, sound effects, and colourful visuals – mostly of extreme sports, but also capturing great human endeavors and the beautiful world around us. Enjoy!
This morning during sunday service, I was compelled to find out the music video that was played during the offering. After service I almost forgot, then I remembered and went to ask the media guys. So here’s Kari Jobe with her beautiful vocals and lyrics:
You Are For Me
This is really classic. I chanced upon this on one of my fav blogs http://www.mrbrown.com and it really shows how fast times have changed, and what really the new generation of internet is like.
Basically, this chick is ranting herself full of nonsense and we immediately get tons of responses on the same youtube media that broadcast it. First, take a load of this original video that sparked it off
Then check out some responses, first from this guy that is making a parody of her rant
and another one from this dude who’s making a comedy segment out of it,
and finally, my personal favourite is this cool guy Jimmy who made a music video response,
Jimmy turns out to be really talented, he sings and plays and I really dig the video editing. So check out Jimmy’s other productions
and what’s more, Jimmy is donating 100% of all his profits from his itunes sold to Japan for it’s recovery from the tsunami disaster. Way to go man!
I just happened to chance upon this guy and he has quite a voice. Doesn’t hurt that the video editing is not too bad as well. Here’s a couple of his vids, scroll down for a surprise at the end.
Above is a Michael Jackson medley compilation.
I kinda liked the Glee song.
Another song he did called Firefires, and check out the last video. This guy Sam Tsui is actually a ……drumroll………….a student at Yale. Check out this unconventional admissions and recruitment video done by Yale Alumni and Students (Sam Tsui appears at 3:15)

This video provokes one to think, to dig deep and go inside the core of who we are.
I am so excited about the new iPhone4. See the video below. It totally blows me away. Just when I hit a high with my first 3GS iPhone in November 2009, it has only been less than 1 year when I am so, so, so looking forward to this revolutionary new model.
iPhone rocks man! Apple rocks man!
