Inspiration fer the weekend . . .

“Every morning upon awakening I experience a supreme pleasure: that of being Salvador Dalí and I ask myself, wonderstruck, what prodigious thing will he do today, this Salvador Dalí.” - the humble Salvador Dali (who else)

If yer feeling down in the fooking dumps, ye could do worse than take the approach above & indulge in a little ego stroking. Have a good weekend!

Nevermind the bollocks, here's DrM . . .

At a time when things are really boiling over & tensions are running high, we have certain influential people making totally reckless remarks.

"DrM says the Chinese are the real masters of the country", screamed the headline in the Malaysian Insider.

Me just hopes that all those stupido Malaysians who still worship at his altar will wake up & smell the fooking bullshit. How can anyone who plays with dangerous racial sentiments at such a volatile period have the interest of the rakyat at heart?

Fook this shite la.

And before anyone starts saying his statements are true, me point is the lousy timing & the fact that he is willing to unnecessarily raise the political temperature fer his own political legitimacy underlines his true credentials as a Malay bigot & a nationalist zealot.

pps: As fer the petition fer English to be reinstated fer certain school subjects, it'd be pertinent to note that it was DrM who got us into this mess in the first fooking place. Drastic drop in education standards happened under his watch.

Air Guitar Classics PtII (Joe Satriani's Surfing With the Alien)

Just like when you need some alone time with Mrs Palmer, some things are best enjoyed in the privacy of yer bedroom. This album is one such guilty pleasure & just like spanking the proverbial primate, this pushes all the right buttons to replicate that orgasmic satisfaction.

Fer those unfamiliar with the name, this bloke was guitar teacher to Kirk Hammett (Metallica) & Surfing With The Alien was his breakthrough album. This instrumental rock guitar album is designed with one purpose only - to get pimply-faced teenage boys everywhere to pick up their tennis/badminton/squash racquets & start gurning in front of the mirror pretending to be the Ultimate Guitar Hero!

Like Eddie Van Halen, Satriani eschewed subtlety in favour of in-yer-face licks & hooks which made you want a Flying V fer yer b'day.
Loud, brash & completely free of irony, Satriani's fret work was at its commercial zenith here.
Absolutely nay apologies, this is music fer adolescent boyz who love the guitar-solo-as-wanking histrionics . . . & it's bloody brilliant! Hope ye downloads this & spend all weekend striking poses! Have a good one!

Faster than a speeding . . .

Couldn't quite believe it but last nite on astro's ch412, they actually showed a fooking bona fide classic in the shape of Steve McQueen's Bullitt. Released in 1968, this film is considered to be the blueprint fer the Renegade Cop character & famed fer its fabulous car chase scene thru the undulating streets of San Francisco.

McQueen's character, Frank Bullitt, is also the forerunner to the strong, silent type hero who wore granite-like expressions throughout the film. (Clint Eastwood's Dirty Harry & Charles Bronson's Paul Benjamin were some of the well-known crime busters that came in the wake of Bullitt.)

While Bullitt may not have aged well, it was quite an experience to see a film from a bygone era where cops had to rely on their wits, use a payphone & weren't experts in every martial art known to mankind. The lack of gizmos in the film was also refreshing. In fact, the most sophisticated thing in Bullitt was a giant-sized fax/copy machine that needed carbon paper!

Fer those who missed it, do keep yer eyes peeled as they may just repeat it again. The car chase scene featuring a duel between a Fastback Mustang & a Dodge Challenger is quite thrilling. Plus ye get the added bonus of seeing what the fuss was all about regarding a certain Jacqueline Bisset!

ps: In 2007, Bullitt was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as being "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant".

pps: Fook, me previous posting on AC/DC's Back In Black got censored. That's the third time me posting (containing download links) has been removed by Blogger. Bastards!
