Can't Smile Without You

I am sure most of you had caught Hellboy II: The Golden Army. The show is great - fantastic special effects, funny, witty with action and romance carried out by a wonderful cast. 3 things from this movie kept hovering around my mind:

  1. Special Effects - my fav will be the black winged, eyeless but cool (no less) Angel of Death
  2. Cool spear wielding kungfu from the elven prince
  3. The one main thing that kept replaying in my head - the catchy song Can't Smile Without You
L Rating: 4.5/5

So if you haven't watch the show yet, WATCH IT! Special effects are best watched on the big screen.

Now let us enjoy the song in my mind together, for you out there:

You know I Can't Smile Without You,
I Can't Smile Without You,
I can't laugh
and I can't sing,
I'm findin' it hard to do anything.
You see, I feel sad when you're sad,
I feel glad when you're glad,
If You only knew what I'm go ing through,
I just Can't Smile Without You.
You came along just like a song
and brightened my day,
Who'd've believe that you were part of a dream
Now it all seems light years away.
And now you know I Can't Smile WIthout You,
I Can't Smile Without You,
I can't laugh and I can't sing,
I'm finding it hard to do anything.
You see, I feel sad when you're sad,
I feel glad when you're glad,
If you only knew what I"m going through,
I just can't smile.
Now some people sa y happiness takes so very long to find.
Well I'm finding it hard leaving your love behind me.
And you see,
I Can't Smile Without You,
I Can't Smile Without You,
I can't laugh
and I can't sing,
I'm findin' it hard to do anything.
Y ou see, I feel sad when you're sad,
I feel glad when you're glad,
If You only knew what I'm going through,
I just Can't Smile Without You

- Can't Smile Without You, Barry Manilow, 1978

Law Plurk-ed

After some online convincing from Ms Saffy's blog, I finally tried my hands on Plurk. Plurk is a pretty interesting web2.0 social site for mini-blogging, presented in a timeline. Your friends can comment and converse on your entries. The app come across to me as cross between Twitter & Friendster's status presented in Microsoft Project's Gantt Chart (sorry profession habit) - a refreshing (thou not unique - Picasa had done it) way of presentation. I am almost wondering if the designer shares the same profession as me :P

What i like about this site:
  • Its quirky toon characters
  • The Karma scoring feature which encourages community growth and discourages spamming
  • The ease of use
  • Integrated contact import
  • Customizable widget (size included)
Check out my lifeline @ Plurk ;)

Making of TROPIC THUNDER Viral Video

This is the MTV Music Awards spoof for TROPIC THUNDER
as expected of the usual fare for the Awards spoof it is hilarious!

Cross over of Topic Thunder, Iron Man and Kungfu Panda! It is a mad pot mix.

The viral marketing video part really touch a piece of my heart.. it is so close to what I do! Reflects the industry, so many people out there just want to do cool stuff to impress but have no idea on what to do. In the end crap comes out.

So if you want to do something cool, know what you want and make sure it is darn cool like this video!

Enough said. Enjoy.
