I am fast, but he's FASTER !!!

I used to care about wrestling or The Rock, but since he switched to acting I've generally been more impressed by Dwayne Johnson. We can all agree material like Tooth Fairy is lame, but he was surprisingly solid early on in The Rundown and Walking Tall. The guy even out acted veterans like Travolta and Keitel in Be Cool. 

Since then he's turned in a number of good performances: Get Smart, The Other Guys, and now Faster. While he works in lighter genres like comedy, this man was made for a movie like Faster. He exudes a sense of dark vengeance. 

Johnson plays a man simply known to us as Driver. Driver has a serious score to settle with some guys, and fresh from a 10-year prison sentence, he's out for blood. Hot on his trail is Cop (Billy Bob Thornton). Also added to the mix is Killer, a professional hit-man hired by one of the men Driver's after. Killer is unessential to the story, but he's played surprisingly well, so it's hard to fault his presence. 

The movie has its share of action, but not the amount the trailer made it look to have. In fact, a scene that was featured prominently in ads was completely cut from the film. You may recall - Johnson and Killer play chicken with their Chevelle and Ferrari. Neither gives, and the two cars collide head on, sending the Chevy flying. 

I can't fault the filmmakers for this. They might have felt the confrontation to be superfluous, that the movie ended better without it. That's fine, and it did have a good ending, I was just expecting more and was very much let down when it went to credits. So that's my one beef, aside from a minor complaint about an unrealistic twist. 

But neither was enough to hurt the movie too badly. In fact, I was impressed at Faster's emotional core. Johnson isn't a robotic killing machine, he's a man with a soul. Some of the men he hunts aren't entirely soulless, either. Morality is very much a problem for Driver, and it's this that elevates Faster above mindless R-rated violence. It's good R-rated violence.

An echo fades into the night,

indeed, an eerie mournful sound.
as the half moon brights in the dark ,
 I crumble to the soft bed.

Almost no mean within this 4 walls,
my sobs are not whine out loud,
 the honeyed fountain have been poisoned
where the tear of joy could be found.

Dazed, I stare at the blank sky,
my grieving howls fill the air!
Unintended betrayal of an acquittance,
has hidden you away from my sight.

I remember how it used to be,
when we shared our fears and delights.
You are an accomplished acquittance to me.
How can I make things right?

Feeling afraid, hate and cold,
I long to tell you how I treated,
but you don't give an ear,
The pain for you is just a salty pinch.

Should I back away and stand to face
and block away all the senses?
Or, should I give thousand of unattended-dial?
Healing will not seize within fortnight.

An echo fades into the night
as our acquaintanceship dissolved.
How do I know what is right?
How can I ease the fears you caused?

If it happen we face-to-face again,
I hope only for the better cause,
The necessity of tears not an issue no more, 
Hurting you is not within my reign!

Oh! Safee Sali

Safee Sali, org Tapah, player Selangor dah berpindah ke kelab Indonesia, Pelita Jaya. 

Ade pro, ade contra nya. 

1. dapat pengalaman main di tempat orang

2. gaji lumayan, ade sumber mengatakan dia akan di bayar USD15,000/month yang lebih kurang RM45K sebulan. (GILAK!!!) engineer yang penat pon xdapat mcm tu... adui~~~ kalau dalam Rp134,250,000.00 wahahaha... SERATUS JUTA!!! kalau lah nilai tu dalam RM. wahaha

3. bile dah berhijrah tempat orang, mungkin boleh perkembangkan lagi nilai tu, kalau die main kat Pelita Jaya tu, die perform kaw2 mcm dalam piala AFC jugak, x mustahil byk lagi kelab2 dr Asia akan pandang. satu langkah yang akan membuka pintu dan jalan utk terus maju laa nih. 

4. dengan usia yang sudah 27 tahun, mungkin ini lah peluang yang terbaik pernah terhidang kepada seorang pemain tempatan. bukan nya nak kata kan Liga Tempatan tidak bagus, bagus! cuma bagus pada taraf liga tempatan je lah. banyak lagi yang perlu di improve oleh pemain2 tempatan yang mungkin hanya akan di perolehi bile tidak bermain di liga tempatan. 

5. berdasarkan pemerhatian daripada perlawana akhir piala Suzuki yang lalu, banyak improvement yang boleh di ceduk dari pasukan Indonesia, contohnya dari segi kawalan bola, dan spacing and position awareness di kalangan pemain Malaysia. di lihatkan daripada kekentalan bek Malaysia, yg rata2 pemain2 yang bermain di Luar Negara sbg jemputan itu, mereka menunujukkan satu awareness yang baik ttg kawasan yang mereka perlu berada. 

6. penghijrahan Safee akan membuka peluang kelab2 luar utk melihat perkembanagan bola sepak negara, dan memilih pemain2 negara utk bermain di kelab2 mereka pula lepas ni seandainya Safee sali berjaya menaikkan nama beliau yang secara tidak langsung menaikkan imej bola sepak negara.

7. perpindahan ke kelab tercorot. bagi penulis, itu bukan isunya. kelab yang bagus adalah kelab yang mampu men'develop' pemain ke tahap yang lebih tinggi. itu adalah kejayaan sebenar sesebuah kelab. bermain di kelab bawahan akan memberi lebih peluang utk beliau bermain dalam kesebelasan utama. bukan kekuatan kelab itu yang menjadi pengukur, tetapi kekuatan Liga dan Head Coach kelab itu yang mampu men'develop' pemain itu. kalau player itu bermain utk kelab yang mempunyai status juara dalam kelab yang lemah, itu tidak akan memberikan seseorg player itu satu pengalaman, utk dapat duit ye lah akan dapat byk.

8. penghijrahan safee sali akan membuka peluang pemain2 muda utk muncul, dan membakar semangat pemain2 lain utk terus maju dan mengikut jejak langkah Safee.

9. liga indonesia buleh di katakan open league jugak la, player2 dari seluruh dunia ada bermain di sana. corak permainan akan berbeza2 dan ini akan meningkatkan mutu keseluruhan permainan dalam liga itu sendiri. 

10. semoga berjayalah di ucapkan kepada Safee Sali. dan menjadi seorg pemain yang di anggap berbisa di liga org.

Forgive but Don't Forget.

in life only one thing is certain
apart from death
and still inhaling the oxygen

no matter how hard you try
no matter how good your intentions are
you are going to make mistakes

you gonna hurt other people 
and you gonna get hurt
repeated over and over

and if you ever want to recover
there is really only one thing you can say
forgive and forget

thats what they say
its good advice
but its not very practical

Sandra Twine Diaz once said
"other people say, U better forgive and forget,
u know what, i don't forgive 
and i don't forget"
when someone hurts us
 we want to hurt them back
when someone wrongs us 
we want to be right

without forgiveness 
old scores are never settled
old wounds never heal

without a sip of memory
you'll not remember the wound
leave the scar a little bit for souvenir
forgive and letting them go
not a wise decision
absolutely not when it came from a same source

better forgive but don't forget
that'll keep your ears listen
and your eyes broaden

it'll will never be the same white clothe again
once stained
no bleach would make it stronger

Whispering Voices

there's no way that i could know what you've experienced...
i couldn't possibly feel that need?
like a thousand hiding voices whispering..

this is who you are..
and u fight the pressure
the growing need rising like a wave
pickling and teasing and prodding
to be fed

but the whispering goes louder
until its screaming out.. NOW
and its the only voice you hear
its the only voice you want to hear
and u belong to it

to this shadow
to this dark passenger
and you can't fight it back

because the voice tells you that its who you are
sometimes you fight
you fight like hell but end up feeding it

the voice doesn't fade away
keeps u up, day or night
calling for u, forcing u..
and it never goes away
until u satisfy it...
i couldn't possibly feel it..
but i could help..
the question is
will u let me?

Musix for the words, Empty - The Click Five

Tried to take a picture 
Of love 
Didn't think I'd miss her 
That much 
I want to fill this new frame 
But its empty 

Tried to write a letter 
In ink 
Its been getting better 
I think 
I got a piece of paper 
But its empty 
Its empty 

Maybe we're trying 
Trying too hard 
Maybe we're torn apart 
Maybe the timing 
Is beating our hearts 
We're empty 

And I've even wondered 
If we 
Should be getting under 
These sheets 
We could lie in this bed 
But its empty 
Its empty 

Maybe we're trying 
Trying too hard 
Maybe we're torn apart 
Maybe the timing 
Is beating our hearts 
We're empty 

Oh oh 

Oh oh 
Oh oh 
Oh oh 

Maybe we're trying 
Trying too hard 
Maybe we're torn apart 
Maybe the timing 
Is beating our hearts 
We're empty 

We're empty 
We're empty 

Or will we end up getting hurt 
Is this love a myth 
So tell me are you in for this 
There's so much more than we can see 
More than you 
More than me 
It takes two to believe! 

Maybe it's our first mistake 
And baby that's alright 
It's crazy how we lost ourselves tonight 
Maybe it's our first mistake 
And baby that's alright 
It's crazy how we lost ourselves tonight 
There's a reason why they say that we should give it time 
But time is not enough 
And that's the reason why when you're young you fall in love 

And that's the reason why 
When you're young you fall in love [2x]
