Pity and Compassion

"There's difference between pity and compassion, and I've had years of practice in noting the distinction. Pity is feeling sorry for someone, while being glad you're not them. Compassion is a shared pain, you hurt with them, their pain becomes your own." - taken from book "Appealed" by Emma Chase

Resep Ceker Masak Pedas (aka Ceker Setan) ala Umi


"Do not go gentle into that good night;
Old age should burn and rave at close of day.
Rage, rage against the dying of the light."

So i just watching Interstellar after madly waiting for its release. And like i said in the title, this movie is SO AWESOME, WHOA. Above my expectation. And if you know me well, you will know how high my expectation was for this movie.

First of all, the director of this movie, Christopher Nolan, is one of my favorite filmmaker. I adore almost of his movie, Interstellar is no exception. At this time, Nolan decided not to send us to the world of dreams or dark world in Gotham City. He send us to the journey, that in my opinion is beyond the boundaries of the possible and impossible, through the space and time, maybe in other galaxy. I assure you, you will not forget this trip.

Interstellar, from trailers itself, is about mankind's space travel for new Earth.

[Review] Newest 2014 TV Series

Aloha! As you know, dari beberapa pekan lalu series baru udah mulai tayang. Oh how I love September and October! Because that's when the tv season starts again and all of your favorites series comeback after a break. It's also the time to try and find new shows that might become favorites in future. Nah gue sebagai penikmat tv series, nyoba nonton dong pilot episode nya, siapa tau nemu series oke buat jadi tontonan sehari-hari di kala senggang, Here's my review.

1. Gotham

What it's about: Tentang Detektif James Gordon jaman masih muda, pas Gotham lagi masa suram, yang pada akhirnya bisa nyiptain hero kayak Batman dan villains macem Pinguin, Riddler, Poison Ivy.

Review: Gotham adalah tv series yang paling ditunggu tahun ini! Pas nonton trailernya aja gue langsung excited, soalnya vibe-nya semacem Batman Trilogy nya Nolan. Yang nonton film nya Nolan pasti ngerti apa yang gue maksud. And finally, I saw the two first episode. Pre Batman era never seemed so awesome. The plot seems elaborate and the way story is spreading and building up suspense, we definitely can expect a pretty epic ending in end season. Kita bakal diliatin interaksi Det. Gordon sama Bruce Wayne kecil, yang bikin kita jadi ngeuh kenapa Bruce segitu hormatnya sama Det. Gordon. Catwoman teenager juga ada porsinya disini. Terusnya relationship antara villain dengan polisi juga ada.. Ah, komplit deh pokoknya. Ohya, gue juga suka view Gotham city yang sering di-shoot dari atas. Cloudy and dark. It's just beautifully scary.

The acting was well out of league. I liked James Gordon's cast. Little Bruce Wayne seemed promising too. And the villain cast? Oh, they're just perfect.

Verdict: I'm so in! It's Batman series without the Batman, Because he's the hero Gotham deserves, but not the one it needs right now. For now, Gotham can do with Jim Gordon!

2. Forever

What it's about: Tentang Henry Morgan, pria 35 tahun yang sebenarnya udah hidup selama 2 abad yang bekerja sebagai kepala forensik dan mencoba mencari tau kenapa dan apa yang bisa ngebatalin dia buat hidup abadi.

Review: Pas download dan mulai nonton pilot episode nya gak ada ekspektasi macam-macam. I thought.. oh this is so not going to work. But I actually thoroughly enjoyed the show! Great quality leads, cool story, and interesting twist on the "immortal" formula. So, being "immortal" here, he is actually mortal but regenerates. He actually dies, bro. But, he can alive again. For me, that is pretty neat idea. Ohya, yang jadi Henry Morgan si om om yang jadi ketua geng di Fantastic Four, yang pas gue imdb-ing namanya Ioan Gruffurd.

And by the way, suberb opening scene! That's how to begin a pilot! :)

Verdict: Compelling, my new favorite!

Ship and The Globe - Kae Sun

Oceans apart and I'm sailing on my dreams
Roll and row but my rolling game too wild
I'm lost in your smile

I'm spending my time watching the ship and the globe
Why beauty's in the simple things
Your sweetness and your elegance
I'm happy you know

Cross My Mind - Twin Forks

Why don't you stay for awhile.
It's been too long since I've smiled.
There's too few people I trust.
I won't ask you for too much,
Good conversation and such,
And if I'm being honest...

From time to time
You cross my mind.
Good company
Is hard to find.
From time to time
You cross my mind.
So stay with me,
Just for a night. (You cross my mind...)
