The King of Pop passes on.

Michael Jackson has passed away at the age of 50, June 25/2009. Very sad day indeed for MJ fans the world over. I've been listening to his songs since around the age of 9, and till this day I never get tired of them. In fact, I still move my feet and tap my fingers to the beat of his songs even today. Even after hundreds of songs I've listened to, Billie Jean remains my all time favourite. After watching numerous dances, nothing beats his smooth as silk footwork. And I'm pretty sure it will stay that way until I'm old. This is how magical, how awe-inspiring he is as an artist to me, and the whole world.

A true artist, and perhaps the only one who has captivated me more than any other singer, probably because I've been listening to his songs at a young age. He's truly one of a kind; no other artist in history has made such an impact in the music industry, and has made smashing hits that has lasted for some 30 years. On top of that, he has the best selling album of all time - Thriller. He is indeed a true music icon, the curly hair, high pitch squeals, slick dancing, crotch grabbing moves, and so on. Nobody will forget the man, for nobody ever forgets the King of Pop. Nobody can forget the unmatched talent this man was born with.

Michael Jackson, the world will miss you, but we will never forget you. R.I.P

Deputy or No Deputy

As I was refreshing back my Add Maths (yes, shocking as it may sound to some people, I have to really start work to bring up my grade), this thought came across my mind:

The interview for Deputy Head Prefect is in about a month's time. Should I take it? A lot of the prefects say I have to be or should be the next deputy. But, frankly, I dont feel like I want the job. I mean, studies always comes first, and being Deputy Head Prefect is a very heavy burden. At the moment I'm already having problems with Add Maths and Moral, and being AJK Spotcheck is already burdening enough on me. By the looks of it being Deputy will only make things worse. On top of that, Devindran has already put me as Badminton Club President for 2009-2010, my fate in BSMM is unknown, but surely I can't run away from a place on the BSMM organising committee. The current AJKs even wanted me to be their next president as well! But I declined, I know it will already be too much. I know my limits; ukur baju di badan sendiri. Thankfully they understand and will look for alternate future presidents.

But unlike BSMM and Badminton, I WILL be the one to make the decision. Now when I think about it, I dont think it will be worthwhile to have all this workload on my back and at the same time having to focus on studies. It'll be too much. But then again, I wouldn't want to dissappoint my seniors (and maybe teachers, I dunno) who already have so much confidence in me. They already are looking up to me as one with the potential and the abilities to be a Deputy. But they dont realise the current state of my studies, they only assume that I can handle it. Assume nothing. If I'm starting to lag behind in studies, why should I make it worse? Not everybody is capable of juggling chainsaws you know. Everyone says be optimistic and work "extra harder" to balance everything. If I'm working very hard enough, why should I push myself to the breaking point? That's not a student's life. No, I dont think I can accept this.

So what if I reject? What will happen? Most probably I will have to keep my current job, but honestly I've had enough of it. Besides, a Form 3 prefect should take over at the beginning of the new term, perhaps I'll coax the teachers to give away my position to the next-gen Spotcheck AJK. Then where does that leave me? Jobless? I would prefer that, not having any extra burden to carry. Some of you may call me a coward or a chicken for running away from all this. I dont care. It certainly beats having these distractions from my study life and having to handle extra stress. I know myself better than any of you, and definitely I know my limits better than any of you.

If I were to make a decision right now, and probably for the interview; I'll reject the Deputy offer and forfeit my current position. A different place on the Prefects Committee Board? We'll see what the teachers have in mind and how things will be talked over.

What would you do in my situation? Take the position anyway or step down from the offer? Or do you have something else in mind?

Twilight retards strike again


"Twilight," the popular vampire drama starring Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart, sucked up golden popcorn trophies for best movie, best fight, best kiss, breakthrough male performance and breakthrough female performance during Sunday's freewheeling and often-bleeped ceremony at the Gibson Amphitheatre in Universal City, Calif.

"The fans are the ultimate driving force," Stewart said while accepting her best female performance trophy (which she promptly dropped on the floor, breaking off a chunk of the golden popcorn). Awards were decided by fan votes.

Other winners included "High School Musical 3: Senior Year" star Zac Efron for male performance and his co-star Ashley Tisdale for female breakthrough performance. Miley Cyrus accepted the best song from a movie prize for "The Climb" from "Hannah Montana: The Movie," preventing "Twilight" from sweeping all six nominated categories.

Ah yes, the fans. The crazy lunatic zombiefied people that are now Twilight, HSM3 and Miley Cyprus fans have done the damage once again as they (stupidly and irrationally) vote for these horrible, terrible, pathetic, lousy, worthless, disgusting, useless, atrocious, appalling, failed, annoying, irritating, stupid, senseless, and most of all unrealistic, sorry excuses for movies and songs. Kids, This just goes to show what braindead or brainwashed people can do, and just how terrible the effects are to the whole world. It's a shame the MTVMA was not decided by a panel of experts and proffessionals (WHY NOT?!?!?!?!), otherwise none, NONE of these abominations would even be NOMINATED on the MTVMA.
