As iPhone and Android users, it’s easy to forget that Facebook hasn’t been fully optimized for all touchscreen phones. Many of us sit here from the comfort of our sleek mobile applications, never knowing the drudgery that Palm owners have to face as they type in URLs to open their favorite services. Well Palm owners, you’re in luck. As of today, Facebook has redesigned Read more…

Pilot moonlights as father to 47

November 27, 2009

As reported and written by CNN — KUPANG, Indonesia (CNN) — At Roslin Orphanage, children giggle through deep concentration as they try to master the “Chicken Dance.” It’s a far cry from the Indonesian orphans’ earlier months and years.

Budi Soehardi poses with young residents of Roslin Orphanage.

“They are cheerful-looking and photogenic, but close to all have a very sad story,” said Budi Soehardi, founder of the West Timor orphanage.

“Some of the babies come because a mother passes away right after delivery because of lack of nutrition. Others come from extreme poverty. Some come from families [that] just do not want the children and abandon them,” he said. Vote now for the CNN Hero of the Year

Is there any such thing as global warming?

November 24, 2009

I always wonder if there’s any obvious and scientific proof about the existence of global warming. All this time, I can’t say that I truly disbelieve in global warming, but I also cannot say if I’m a believer as well. But frankly speaking, I’m more a sceptic, than a believer in this case. And if you ask me whether I hate all the global warming propaganda, yes, in some ways, I hate it.

Not that I don’t care about the Earth and our livings. I care a lot and I believe, it’s our duties to take care of our home planet. But, do we take care of it because there’s global warming? I don’t think so. See, the way we destroy the Earth just sucks. We have to recover our home planet. We should change our way of taking care of it into better ones. But, putting global warming Read more…

Ryan Seacrest was there to introduce Adam Lambert on Sunday night, but his American Music Awards performance of “For Your Entertainment” was a long way removed from the family-friendly confines of “American Idol.” There was groping, dragging and bondage outfits, bringing the ABC program to an end with theatrical images of sexual slavery.
“It’s about to get rough,” Lambert sings in the song’s opening Read more…

Happy birthday!

November 21, 2009

Tonight will be my best friend’s 22nd birthday celebration. As now I’m writing this, I’m thinking what could be the possible best gift for here tonight. You know, she and I, we are 110 miles apart. And since there’s a certain distance between us, I just want to make sure if this present can be the one she can hear and see tonight.

Earlier, I was thinking about giving her some audio present of me Read more…

Lady Gaga The Fame Monster review

November 19, 2009

The Fame Monster is Lady Gaga‘s 2nd album. At the beginning, the eight songs of this album supposed to be part of her first album re-release. But after doing some further considerations, Gaga decided to release it as a new album, stand alone apart from The Fame. Gaga thought it’d unfair to add those eight songs as a part of The Fame re-release. Also, it’d be expensive.

“I think re-releases are unfair. It’s artists sneaking singles onto an already finished piece of work in an effort to keep the album afloat. Originally [my label] only wanted me to put out three songs and now it’s much more than that. It’s a new album’s worth of material.

Having that thoughts, Gaga also decided Read more…

Ratatouille, the feast of 2007

November 18, 2009

Django and Emile, eating foods taken from garbage.

For me, Ratatouille is easily the best movie. This is Brad Bird’s best yet. Its plot is very simple, yet brilliant when it’s mixed up with the idea of a rat who got what it takes to be the best chef. I also fall in love with the animation. It’s fantastic. The objects texture, the drawings, the furs. Not to mention, the best angles and composition yet in an animation movie. It’s just so colorful, detailed and alive. I was like watching moving paintings, which is so full of art sense. Even you may be overwhelmed by just watching how the rat’s heart beats.

The story is one of the most original scripts. It’s very solid with humor that’s not pushed over the limit. It’s classic in many other ways. The character development Read more…
