The Mirror Image Of Myself

R.I.P Chris Benoit

Posted in Asides, Entertainment, News, Sports by zenmaster on June 26, 2007

Whilst searching for the latest news on Digg, I was shocked by the news of WWE professional wrestler (to a certain extend, actor) Chris Benoit found dead in his home together with his wife and children. The news isn’t fabricated like Mr. McMahon’s death. It’s real. R.I.P Chris. You’ll be missed. 😦

STAMFORD, Conn., June 25, 2007 – World Wrestling Entertainment was informed today by authorities in Fayette County, Ga., that WWE Superstar Chris Benoit, his wife, Nancy, and his son were found dead in their home. Authorities are investigating, but no other details are available at this time.

Instead of its announced programming for Monday on USA Network, WWE aired a three-hour tribute to Chris Benoit.

Chris was beloved among his fellow Superstars, and was a favorite among WWE fans for his unbelievable athleticism and wrestling ability. He always took great pride in his performance, and always showed respect for the business he loved, for his peers and towards his fans. This is a terrible tragedy and an unbearable loss.

WWE extends its sincere condolences and prayers to the Benoit family and loved ones in this time of tragedy.

QOTSA – Avon Performed By 4 Different Drummers

Posted in Entertainment, Videos by zenmaster on June 25, 2007

Just in case if you’re scratching your head pondering what the heck is QOTSA. Well, it’s a short for Queens Of The Stone Age. Sounds gay, but heck, they rock to the core. Anyways, here’s the same song performed by different drummers.

Alfredo Hernandez (1998 – 1999)

Gene Trautman (1999 – 2002)

Dave Grohl (2002) <———— this is da’ bomb!

Joey Castillo (2002 – current)

Personally, I think Dave Grohl is the best candidate to become a permanent member of QOTSA, for what it’s worth. Too bad, he has Foo Fighters to take care of. Joey Castillo is too fast for my liking. Must be because of his punk rock background. But nevermind, that what makes QOTSA a democratic band. Hiring lotsa musicians, making it very diverse.

So what’s your pick.

Side note: QOTSA’s new album, Era Vulgaris (Vulgar Years in Latin) is now released. Do check it out. 🙂

Word Of A Day: Desu

Posted in Asides by zenmaster on June 23, 2007

Desu is a Japanese for ‘it is’. It’s often said at the end of sentences to seem cute or unwitting.

e.g:

I went to the store and bought some milk, desu.

or

DESU DESU DESU DESU DESU DESU DESU DESU DESU
DESU DESU DESU DESU DESU DESU DESU DESU DESU
DESU DESU DESU DESU DESU DESU DESU DESU DESU

Still can’t get what I mean? Then head over to here.

Turn Your MPV Into A 7-Seater Convertible. O Rly? Ya rly.

Posted in Automobiles, Humor, Videos by zenmaster on June 21, 2007


Jeremy Clarkson (also known as Jezza in Australian accent) tries to prove that multi purpose vehicle (MPV) can be multi functional by cutting the roof off and convert it into a 7-seater convertible MPV. But the outcome is not that good. The MPV split into half while he’s driving half-way. Hence, Jezza concludes that Renault Espace is not a good car and destined to go to hell.

Ironically on Top Gear’s “How Hard Can It Be” challenge, Renault Espace just doing fine despite being converted into convertible by the same means. Maybe the challenge is managed by James “Captain Slow” May instead of Jeremy “Powerrrr” Clarkson. Ditto, the challenges ended in hilarity, albeit the MPV is back in good condition (sort of). I’m not going to spoil you. Just download and watch Top Gear Season 8 Episode 1.

For your information, this clip is not taken from Top Gear. It’s from his annual DVD release couple of years ago called Heaven and Hell, featuring the famous Perodua Kelisa being tortured to death by the means of smashed by sledgehammer, “hanging, drawing & quartering” and explosion. In other words, it’s the worse car being
tortured by Jezza just because it’s the cheapest car in UK (6000 pounds) and it’s nothing but a white good that has no soul, no passion and no flair.

I can read your mind with my telepathic power,
I can also talk bullshit straight from my bowel.

I wept like a baby when I tear myself up,
I cuss when I don’t have a good luck.

I speed after I give my car a proper send off,
I then, crash it at the street of Kuala Lumpur.

I fight myself as if I am my own worst enemy,
I twitch left and right when I feel loosy goosy.

This is the lamest poem I’ve ever written,
So lame, I squeal and shout “yeeeerrrrrrr!!!!!!”.

A Star Without a Name

Posted in Poetry by zenmaster on June 13, 2007

When a baby is taken from the wet nurse,
it easily forgets her
and starts eating solid food.

Seeds feed awhile on ground,
then lift up into the sun.

So you should taste the filtered light
and work your way toward wisdom
with no personal covering.

That’s how you came here, like a star
without a name. Move across the night sky
with those anonymous lights.

– Rumi, famous poet from Persia

Ricky Gervais Is Back

Posted in Entertainment, Humor by zenmaster on June 12, 2007


It’s pretty hard to find British humor on TV nowadays (except for the Mr Bean infinite reruns). The Office (UK version, mind you) was aired on 8TV before but the time slot allocated was horrible, which is 12.30am (for god’s sake, this is not prime time slot) Not many people appreciate witty British humor or what? Maybe. Anyways, Ricky is back with his new flick, it’s called Extras. Extras depicts about a person who quits his job to pursue his dream as an actor. But it turned out to be worse. He’s offered as a keh leh feh (supporting actor/extras) instead. What happen next?

Remember to tune in on 8TV at 12.30am this Friday. Mmmkay. Sigh! No more aired already. 😦

Extras on BBC.

Dwelve Myself Into LOLCODE programming

Posted in Interesting Stuff, Technology by zenmaster on June 11, 2007

I found something interesting on the Interweb. It’s not meant for serious programming, just for fun only. If you’re familiar with LOLCATS manipulated image and language, you’ll have no problem grasping the syntax. If you still cannot get my drift, read this wikipedia entry about lolcat.

Here’s an example of “Hello World” application written in LOLCODE and the output should produce “HAI WORLD!”.

HAI
VISIBLE "HAI WORLD!"
KTHXBYE

I’ll give it a try and see how fun writing LOLCODE programs. 🙂
