Now I See.

... what's the big deal with external monitors.

They make me lazy, but hell, it's to fully utilise the maximum resolution you can get out of something, and TVs and standard Full HD monitors don't really do anything good.

One interesting thing about this Samsung monitor I've got though - the panels / controls are all touch-based. Which is annoying at one point, especially at night if the lights are off, somehow.

And sitting in an odd position (no thanks to my minor collection of figures) to see what's going on in one screen and what's going on the other, etc.

.. shit man.

I really need a workstation for this crap. Haha!

I'm having the time of my life.


On another note, I should get less committed with some issues in life if I continue to be unappreciated.

Not to say that I don't really give a shit, but if this goes on, I think it's better that one pulls themselves out from an issue than to stay.

Like a dying leaf on a healthy plant. It's like a disease.

Oh Hello!

Besides the fun of getting a shitload of new DVDs and a new pair of speakers,

Meet my.. ultimate break for the Mac.

Oh. Hai. I like external monitors now.

... You don't know how happy I am.

Next test: Top Gear in 1080i

Snap Back To Reality.

You never know what will hit you when you know that you're destined to fail one day.

I wish for a lot of things.

One of them is that I should not be around in the world so it can be a better place to live in.

I really can't be bothered with life right now.

It's the same shit, but different days.

I Am Such An Ass.

I know.

I decided to follow my roots in music and bought these three:

Camera Roll-6

David Gilmour, Eric Clapton's Crossroads, and KISS.

How awesome is that.

But that's not the end of it. I only have my Sennheiser HD280 PRO to assist me with these musical journeys, and the lack of the low ends makes the likes of Gene Simmons, Billy Sheehan, Geddy Lee, Victor Wooten and many others sound like shit.


Just got my Bose Companion 2! Sweet joy!


Boy, will I have an awesome time tomorrow catching up. Hehehe.

Oh Joy!

I might and might not get the vacancy that they have for grabs!

Here's a hint, after JoeyShinoda told me what's going on with Next Byte (Especially when I was checking out their website at the same time), they were offering a spot in being a part-time sales consultant.

I've only did sales for 24 days, and it's pretty interesting. Especially, the only way I learn about stuff is actually through practical work.

Whatever it is, I would love to learn more about the opportunities and technological improvements for Apple products.

Heee. :)

Hot Toys - War Machine

So, today I got this awesome little figure. A figure that collectors would die for.

Hot Toys.

I've never heard of them, and I've always been loyal to SquareEnix's Play Arts Kai (.. Until recently due to bad QC), and you know what?

I've defected.

I've never seen such detailed work based on a movie star. James Rhodes' face (based off the movie) looks like.. Well, HIMSELF.

I was suckered into Hot Toys after seeing what they did to Stallone. And Stallone looked like.. STALLONE!

I'm impressed!

So here are some shots off my Flickr gallery:




Of course, there were some issues with the LED on the head area, so I opened the battery box. Without realising it, I managed to screw up the screw that I was screwing on (!!). So I found a replacement. Found these bunch of brass screws that's meant for trains and wooden tracks and stuff. Pretty interesting thing, but yeah, these screws cost me $5.50, the screwdriver set costs $25.50, and extra batteries to be replaced would be $10.


Anyways, the screws, followed by the rest of the shots.

I'm just surprised at the amount of effort the team puts into in designing a figure on display. I believe that this would be the 2nd most expensive figure I have up to date in my collection. The first one would be my Takara Masterpiece 04S.












Look at that detail.

I mean, look at the detail on that face. At one point, it looked really realistic.

Actually, it does look pretty darn realistic right now.

Of course, I was rather amazed at the articulation of the fingers, so I decided to see if it really could grab onto something non-Hot Toys related.

.. Like a Takara Masterpiece weapon.

.. Let alone, Megatron.

Oh, I like guns!

Oh how awesome!

The other question in hand is: I'm not sure if I'm willing enough to pay $200 ++ for the upcoming Iron Man Mark IV figure that I preordered. I can always cancel it since I did not pay for a deposit fee. Heh.

And this is what you do if you have more than one War Machine head.

A limited edition Jungle Fatigues Big Boss:

First Big Boss (MGS) that actually gets a battle helmet. Haha.
