Maybe its not my fault




Maybe its the red underwear.

Maybe I believe its easy when it wasn't.

Maybe I think my highlights started at the results slip, and not in the classroom.

Maybe I thought everything I wrote was correct. That my game was built on flash, and not fire.

Maybe its not my fault to ignore that failure gave me strength, that my pain was my motivation.

Maybe I believe that life was an easy stroll in the park, and not something I should work for. every single day of my life.

Maybe I destroyed my life.

Or maybe, I'm just making excuses.

初戀紅豆冰


終于看完了。五月上映時,大夥兒去電影院我爲了看英甲聯賽最後一戰而錯過了,上半場一人被罰下還落後一球,還好後來反敗爲勝,升班了。

其實馬、新的電影都有一個趨勢,就是一開始是喜劇,中間之後變成劇情,把劇情現實化,好像梁自強的錢不夠用二、還有年初大馬賀嵗片大日子都是很好的例子。好處是很多主題可以寫,可是我認爲過程中卻失去了對一個主題的深入探討。

先說海報吧,選擇那一幕,個人覺得真的很好。可以說是我看完整部電影後最想回到和最寧靜的一刻。張棟梁只出現那幾秒鐘,海報上的照片不應該和李心潔等人一樣大。
找了金像獎最佳女主角李心潔來撐腰的卡司,還有巫啟賢、品冠等馬來西亞之光。最吸引我的還是陳美娥,90年代大馬演藝界好景的時候,許多劇都有她,我沒記錯應該還拍過著名巧克力Ferrero Roche的廣告,因爲她跟我媽同姓所以就記得了,很傻吧。

李心潔很棒。我對她其實沒什麽印象,只知道我媽不太喜歡她。電影裏她的造型很好看,可以說上潮流,那件鮮蛋超人的tshirt誰都會愛穿!可是在80年代,以打架魚(她的角色)的背景來説似乎摩登了一點,短褲褲都是牛仔褲修剪的,顔色還很好。髮型就是年頭我妹也剪過的椰殼頭,郭采潔發行煙火專輯時的髮型,李心潔剪這個髮形年輕了很多。

Honda EX5 的摩托車雖然是八十年代的產品,可是村子裏不大可能有吧,而且後來在吉隆坡的結尾,説明那個年代又好像是九十年代初,電影裏村子比較像70年代,這點從魚店老闆陳國坤的李小龍髮型看的出。縂的來説是年代模糊,出現的東西很亂。

如果說這部電影不是喜劇,那最後Botak沒有和打架魚走在一起是對的,只是我覺得如果是喜劇就好,人物可以漫畫化,Botak就會和打架魚在一起。

Botak的畫很美。得獎后選擇跑去哭,非常感人!很讚,我差點落淚。只是還是那個馬新的款式,傷心時就會下雨。

很感謝阿牛能把檳城帶到電影去。最近發現紐約市有一個logo,讓所有電影如果有75%是在紐約市拍攝就可以在鳴謝表裏放那個logo,說明紐約市通過電影來帶起旅遊業的心思。檳城可以學習。阿牛把一個地方帶出來時是看地標,檳城就光大大樓,吉隆坡就雙峰塔。我覺得檳城應該讓人看見的是那些已列爲世界遺產的老街,比如一個檳城的路牌背景再加光大就很好。

整體來説好像在看洋基的棒球賽,沙胖投了六1/3局,滿壘,張伯倫無失分,七局交給伍德,八局滿壘最後一出局交給李維拉救援。跌跌撞撞最後還是靠強打贏了。很多人看了應該都會感動,因爲故事是多麽的純真,把大人們都帶回了以前“我就是全世界”的時候。

我希望阿牛可以拍/演喜劇片,諧星其實越來越受歡迎,香港的王祖藍就是個很好的例子。好像维基百科所說的,把馬來西亞電影水準提高了。不管怎樣,謝謝陳導演,我以和你同是檳城人爲榮!
還有就是竟然不當這是本土片而收20%利潤的干他娘白痴政府。

Lady KateKate

會越來越喜歡Kate是因爲她讓我對一些事情改觀。以下的訪問是一年半前的了。Kate的情況很特別,其實她身上可以看到很多值得學習的東西。

撰 文 : 方 俊 傑
攝 影 : 梁 炳 權
髮 型 : Deli Siu@Hair
服 裝 指 導 : Sarona Lo@SaronaStudio
服 裝 提 供 : Dior 、 Pucci 、 Valentino
http://bbs.ent.163.com/bbs/tvb/131022446.html

第 二 次 訪 問 徐 子 珊 , 像 訪 問 另 一 個 人 。

著 上 四 吋 高 高 踭 鞋 , 手 舞 足 蹈 搔 首 弄 姿 。 上 次 ? 她 還 在 抱 怨 日 日 開 工 要 化 妝 。 「 我 最 近 打 歌 , 經 常 著 高 踭 鞋 跳 舞 , 怎 會 不 習 慣 ? 」

對 。 上 次 , 徐 子 珊 是 剛 卸 任 的 港 姐 , 戰 戰 兢 兢 ; 現 在 是 電 視 台 飛 躍 進 步 女 藝 員 、 金 像 獎 最 佳 新 演 員 , 甚 至 出 唱 片 , 有 機 會 當 上 新 一 代 舞 后 。 「 徐 子 珊 還 是 徐 子 珊 , 只 不 過 終 於 適 應 環 境 , 懂 得 從 工 作 中 找 尋 樂 趣 。 」

上 次 , 徐 子 珊 不 苟 言 笑 , 有 點 拒 人 千 里 ; 今 次 , 笑 容 滿 面 。 真 的 比 從 前 快 樂 。

說 話 語 氣 依 舊 男 孩 一 個 , 但 頭 髮 留 長 了 , 身 形 細 了 兩 個 碼 , 從 外 觀 上 , 也 實 在 跟 上 次 截 然 不 同 。 上 次 上 次 上 次 , 畢 竟 兩 年 前 的 事 了 , 有 變 動 也 是 理 所 當 然 吧 。 毫 無 改 善 的 , 如 我 , 才 值 得 好 好 檢 討 。

很 多 花 旦 唱 歌 , 沒 有 那 一 個 像 徐 子 珊 主 攻 跳 舞 快 歌 。 當 衞 詩 前 途 未 卜 , 對 徐 子 珊 的 市 場 需 求 應 該 又 大 一 點 。

徐 子 珊 沒 有 學 過 唱 歌 , 也 甚 少 唱 歌 。 如 果 出 張 唱 片 動 不 動 賣 四 五 十 萬 , 你 不 難 理 解 為 什 麼 人 人 熱 衷 入 行 。 在 唱 片 業 萎 縮 的 年 代 , 歌 手 身 份 還 有 什 麼 吸 引 力 ? 「 我 喜 歡 上 台 。 」

「 訪 問 之 前 , 我 剛 出 席 兩 個 活 動 。 一 個 有 台 , 另 一 個 無 台 , 對 我 的 分 別 已 經 好 大 。 就 是 這 麼 簡 單 。 」 做 一 個 藝 員 , 日 日 返 錄 影 廠 , 一 年 可 能 只 得 一 兩 次 上 台 做 大 騷 機 會 , 唔 夠 喉 。 出 唱 片 , 就 算 賺 不 到 錢 , 但 可 以 儲 多 一 點 本 錢 。 「 終 極 目 標 是 有 一 日 搞 一 個 歌 舞 劇 。 」

因 為 頻 於 跳 舞 , 運 動 量 大 , 徐 子 珊 消 減 了 不 少 。 如 此 積 極 , 很 有 野 心 吧 ? 「 徐 子 珊 其 實 由 頭 到 尾 都 沒 有 野 心 。 我 根 本 不 了 解 自 己 , 其 他 人 對 我 的 了 解 還 更 透 徹 。 」 例 如 一 直 認 為 自 己 是 個 男 孩 子 , 要 直 到 有 人 提 醒 , 在 跳 舞 過 程 中 流 露 出 女 性 化 一 面 , 才 相 信 自 己 也 可 以 當 個 索 女 。 「 是 樂 ( 易 玲 ) 小 姐 去 年 說 幫 我 出 唱 片 , 我 便 簽 了 唱 片 公 司 。 是 大 家 覺 得 我 可 以 , 多 過 我 。 」



Right Now

在 電 視 台 尚 未 算 站 穩 陣 腳 , 便 另 闢 戰 線 ? 不 是 我 說 的 。 徐 子 珊 做 女 主 角 的 《 幕 後 大 老 爺 》 , 收 視 不 濟 , 觀 眾 群 起 攻 之 , 批 評 新 一 代 演 員 未 孭 到 飛 , 然 後 不 斷 吹 噓 新 劇 《 巾 幗 梟 雄 》 的 黎 耀 祥 鄧 萃 雯 。 時 移 世 易 , 以 前 是 越 後 生 越 吃 香 , 現 在 的 新 人 必 被 狠 批 , 沒 有 一 定 經 歷 都 好 像 沒 有 實 力 。 「 時 勢 就 是 這 樣 啦 。

「 氣 候 就 是 前 輩 抬 頭 嘛 。 等 於 有 人 問 我 , 覺 不 覺 得 廿 五 歲 才 選 港 姐 太 遲 了 , 其 實 沒 有 太 早 或 太 遲 。 早 了 入 行 , 或 者 觀 眾 比 較 易 接 受 新 人 , 但 可 能 有 好 多 個 比 我 優 勝 的 出 現 , 我 根 本 無 得 撈 。

「 又 或 者 , 再 遲 一 點 入 行 , 局 面 又 會 比 現 在 好 。 你 怎 估 得 到 ? 人 , 只 有 right now 。 我 當 電 視 是 一 個 最 好 的 訓 練 。 頭 兩 年 , 好 麻 木 , 根 本 唔 知 自 己 的 工 作 是 什 麼 一 回 事 。 太 緊 張 , 很 多 樂 趣 便 忽 略 了 。 」

徐 子 珊 說 , 以 前 拍 電 影 , 很 多 NG ; 今 日 再 拍 , 很 多 一 take 過 , 關 鍵 是 要 學 懂 enjoy 。 你 便 會 發 覺 , 短 短 三 分 鐘 一 首 歌 , 也 蘊 含 很 多 趣 味 。

星 期 日 晚 , 我 可 以 通 宵 留 在 公 司 完 成 這 篇 稿 , 嗯 , 真 的 很 有 趣 味 。

人 人 說 她 平 均 , 但 比 較 令 人 印 象 深 刻 , 還 是 《 跟 蹤 》 中 傻 吓 傻 吓 的 豬 女 。 尤 其 當 有 線 電 影 台 一 星 期 播 十 幾 次 。

最 後 一 次

如 果 沒 有 估 計 錯 誤 , 徐 子 珊 不 斷 NG 的 電 影 , 應 該 是 處 女 作 《 跟 蹤 》 。 她 最 後 贏 了 金 像 獎 最 佳 新 演 員 。

「 之 後 , 傾 回 來 的 電 影 機 會 , 或 多 或 少 也 因 為 這 齣 電 影 。 導 演 都 愛 說 我 勝 在 夠 average , 即 是 , 沒 有 什 麼 特 點 。 」

於 是 , 在 電 視 劇 , 她 處 理 倀 雞 惡 女 角 色 ; 在 電 影 , 又 純 情 賢 淑 到 匪 夷 所 思 。 上 期 《 豪 語 錄 》 , 王 晶 點 名 稱 讚 徐 子 珊 是 香 港 女 演 員 中 少 數 有 前 途 的 。 你 知 我 知 動 機 是 為 着 宣 傳 新 片 《 金 錢 帝 國 》 而 來 , 徐 子 珊 也 不 能 避 免 當 上 港 女 希 望 。 「 這 實 在 是 香 港 人 的 通 病 。

「 有 幾 多 新 一 代 的 香 港 藝 員 受 過 專 業 訓 練 ? 可 是 情 況 不 容 許 我 們 學 習 了 , 不 同 電 視 台 , 可 以 由 配 角 慢 慢 捱 上 主 角 , 每 一 齣 電 影 都 是 硬 仗 , 不 是 今 次 做 得 不 理 想 便 留 待 下 次 改 進 , 而 是 今 次 做 得 出 色 都 不 代 表 有 下 次 呀 ! 」
次 次 打 真 軍 , 背 城 借 一 , 壓 力 很 大 。 「 最 大 的 壓 力 來 自 大 家 對 我 的 信 心 。

「 我 份 人 , 很 怕 令 他 人 失 望 。 像 去 年 爭 最 佳 新 演 員 , 未 宣 布 , 人 人 已 經 恭 喜 我 ; 到 真 的 得 獎 了 , 我 第 一 個 反 應 不 是 興 奮 , 是 呼 一 口 氣 , 好 在 沒 有 掃 大 家 的 興 。 」

徐 子 珊 說 , 次 次 , 她 都 當 是 最 後 一 次 , 在 不 安 全 感 中 找 尋 喘 息 。 「 所 以 , 我 還 可 以 覺 得 有 趣 味 的 存 在 , 真 是 很 難 得 了 。 」

安 頓

徐 子 珊 , 尚 有 兩 個 月 左 右 便 踏 入 三 十 歲 。 「 好 在 樣 子 不 似 。 」
廿 五 歲 前 , 安 安 穩 穩 她 生 活 , 像 一 條 直 線 , 這 五 年 , 變 幻 不 定 。 很 多 女 演 員 , 廿 一 廿 二 入 行 , 三 十 走 紅 , 三 十 五 計 劃 結 婚 生 仔 。 徐 子 珊 距 離 這 條 路 向 似 乎 很 遠 。    

「 我 接 受 。
「 以 前 , 是 舒 服 ; 現 在 , 是 快 樂 。 我 找 到 自 己 喜 歡 的 工 作 , 我 希 望 自 己 的 人 生 有 很 多 故 事 , 我 不 介 意 放 棄 一 般 人 眼 中 的 正 常 路 徑 。

「 我 對 愛 情 有 憧 憬 , 我 也 有 跟 人 約 會 , 但 就 算 沒 有 , 我 也 不 覺 得 是 犧 牲 。 我 不 能 安 頓 下 來 , 暫 時 , 我 真 的 不 可 以 安 頓 下 來 , 我 有 太 多 太 多 計 劃 了 , 要 我 現 在 似 姊 姊 般 結 婚 生 仔 ? I don't think so 。 」

或 者 因 徐 子 珊 這 一 刻 沒 有 跳 舞 。 這 一 刻 , 她 又 沒 有 什 麼 女 性 化 了 。

壞 人

不 知 道 還 有 沒 有 人 要 求 訪 問 必 須 公 正 持 平 , 我 盡 量 , 不 刻 意 奉 承 , 也 不 主 動 挖 苦 。

第 一 次 訪 問 徐 子 珊 , 坦 白 說 , 相 當 氣 餒 。 她 有 太 多 不 願 說 , 簡 單 如 有 沒 有 男 朋 友 , 她 都 用 保 障 私 隱 來 做 擋 箭 牌 。 還 有 什 麼 不 算 私 隱 ?

兩 年 下 來 , 她 好 像 沒 有 當 我 是 怪 獸 了 。 雖 然 要 一 個 自 言 不 了 解 自 己 的 人 , 突 然 出 口 成 文 , 是 有 點 妄 想 , 至 少 看 得 出 盡 力 表 達 的 誠 意 。 「 你 也 說 得 對 , 或 者 之 前 見 過 一 次 , 對 你 有 點 信 心 吧 。 」

各 位 , 覺 得 我 沒 有 哈 哈 大 笑 又 不 夠 客 客 氣 氣 兼 且 黑 口 黑 面 的 , 請 見 諒 。 我 知 我 不 是 好 人 , 我 , 也 不 是 壞 人 。

我自從夏天看了美麗高解像,就很被徐子珊吸引,覺得她很厲害。後來找到了除了大搜查之女外,全部她拍過電影來看。就像很多導演訪問時說過,子珊很有潛質,很多不同的角色都演得很好。

第一次認識徐子珊是家好月圓預告片,那時也只知道她是港姐。隨著慢慢有了時間和能力去看很多不同的電影、電視劇,才真正知道她。

之前看過臺灣一名大導演說,看電影是很主觀的事。一名好的演員就是能夠讓人記得他的角色,最近和同學談起子珊,多數都記得她在錦衣衛和家好月圓裏演的反派。

王祖藍說有子珊這類型的演員很好玩,讓她翻桌子就翻桌子,很專業。因爲這樣他說子珊很適合演喜劇,這點我倒很同意。

剛剛看完了子珊屹今唯一被提名最佳女主角的電視劇“甜言蜜语",首誇的是主題。我很留意細節,就比如子珊聼電話都用只聽見兩三成的右耳,讀唇語時對手是否看著她等,都有做到。我甚至某些片斷學起唐棠,把聲量關掉來讀唇!唯一我覺得遺憾的是子珊的感情戯份。甜蜜的感覺就是不夠,或許是我貪心,也有可能是因爲最近愛上rom com。情越雙白綫子珊也是第十三集就拍拖。

找到了今年春分的報導,指美麗高解像真人版在子珊身上發生,說子珊早前從珍姐派轉做樂小姐派。其實事實是怎樣真的只有當事人知道,但是從子珊每年的作品產量來看都大約是那個數目,不會特別少,而最新出街的“情越雙白線”的監製梁材遠卻是珍姐派的,説明報導應屬不實。

至於唱歌,人批子珊嘛嘛地的聲也能進軍歌壇,我覺得聼歌和看電影一樣屬主觀的事情。可以說子珊歌聲普通,是賣性感吃胡,可人家有副好身材和靚麗的面孔啊。而且她屬動感歌手,動感舞蹈都是這樣的吧(蔡依林、蕭亞軒)。再説連每張專輯都platinum的容祖兒都有人批啦。最近唱片公司倒閉了,希望有人會簽下Kate。

也因甜言蜜语裏面唐棠喜歡yesterday once more,我認真地聼後開始喜歡這首歌。 但是很奇怪,我比較喜歡歌曲的verse。

未來幾年會是子珊的黃金年華吧,希望看到她接到好劇本,當正,特別是電影。

如果子珊你有睇到哩篇文章,我想同你講我好仲意你,你要加油!

Raindrops keep fallin' on my head
And just like the guy whose feet are too big for his bed
Nothin' seems to fit
Those raindrops are fallin' on my head, they keep fallin'

So I just did me some talkin' to the sun
And I said I didn't like the way he got things done
Sleepin' on the job
Those raindrops are fallin' on my head, they keep fallin'

But there's one thing I know
The blues they send to meet me won't defeat me
It won't be long till happiness steps up to greet me

Raindrops keep fallin' on my head
But that doesn't mean my eyes will soon be turnin' red
Cryin's not for me
'Cause I'm never gonna stop the rain by complainin'
Because I'm free
Nothin's worryin' me

It won't be long till happiness steps up to greet me

Raindrops keep fallin' on my head
But that doesn't mean my eyes will soon be turnin' red
Cryin's not for me
'Cause I'm never gonna stop the rain by complainin'
Because I'm free
Nothin's worryin' me

;)

轉彎

有時候,不管身邊有多少人多麽支持,也要自己一個人面對。今天有個朋友說對了-可憐啊!

弄到這種蘇州屎,真的很難搞。平常的話大概多一兩年就出來了,現在大概至少也得搞個三年…

出來了也得和較年輕(就是本錢!)的爭工作。

現在時代不同,都是繞著一個規矩走,走散了得自己走回。不同以前各走各的,行行出狀元。

再説來了這裡這麽久,圈子都交熟了。去別的地方又要從頭來過,談何容易。

或許這就是所謂的不是每個人都會有的,所謂的不平凡吧。

偶認識你雖然沒很深,但也真的替你煩了,你這次走了大概很難再見…

人生就是這樣,不能夠預知未來來做準備,也不能夠回頭,只能一路走下去。

不可思議

今天發現一件事情。陶子說得最貼切:被車撞死了,雙腳還被切斷。很不可思議,很好笑。撞死了不會介意有沒有腳,只是體無完膚,死得更難看。

不知道那個開車的會有什麽感想。

“我們往往花很多時間去忘記曾經珍惜而不該珍惜的人”,不管時間過了多久,痕跡模糊了多少,我們還是會看得見和去想它。至於用新的開始來忘記行不行得通,還得試了才知道。

是放手了,還是都只是掩飾?

沒有忘記就會想起,一定要這樣嗎?

Wednesday, July 14, 2010

我愛

最近開始看陶子姐的我愛故我在,原以爲可以一口氣看完,最多也只需要兩天,結果今天第三天了只看了三分一;因爲很多東西需要花時間去整理、去消化。她把很多我在心裏醖釀的瑣瑣碎碎像拼圖一樣拼了起來。

Timing of love(愛的時機),真的很貼切。

其實不論什麽事情,時機一過,再好也沒有用。不管一名投手有多少勝,打擊的隊友和其他先發投手不發揮,也不能拿冠軍。

“曾經看過紐約MoMA、SOHO;看過南非的克魯格國家公園的花豹上樹;清晨欣賞過紐西蘭南島的座頭鯨;安哥拉治上空看過北極光;尼泊爾瞭望喜瑪拉雅聖母峰頂疾風吹雪;意大利佛儸倫斯的小鎮風情;曾在原宿、涉谷shopping;法國儸浮宮熱巧克力、日本產地直達的生魚片、屏東黑金剛、油魚子;洛杉磯紐結餅。” 陶子說這是青春歲月,是自我,需要填滿和完成後才來談結婚(安定下來的生活)。之前有個朋友22嵗結婚,很難想象她已經填滿和完成了。或許不是每一個人都有這樣的空格要填滿,甚至也有人能夠把次序對調;但肯定不會是喜歡無拘無束的水瓶座的我。

她寫的東西都很現實,好像該不該結婚生小孩這種決定,其實每個人都有過像書裏說的那些非主流卻又現實的顧慮,只是往往沒有去認真地評估和實踐它;甚至說出來還會被排擠。

分手快樂

不知不覺來到第一百篇了,上個月有同學偶然發現這個空間,因爲同班所以以前很多不是很好的想法和故事都挖出來笑一笑,原來這些漫長的日子就是這樣地過了。

舊的不去,新的不來。有時候放不開,是因爲沒有新的開始。中間那個buffer zone是越短越好。不是說貪心忘舊,很多時候了結了,斷了,反而活得更好。

看很多人放完暑假很不捨得回去上課、痛苦的樣子,曾幾何時我也一樣,只不過現在麻木了。大概原因也是一樣,就是回來high過頭,日子過得太好太快樂。在101倒數看煙花,我的第二年不更high嗎,飄洋過海我不是更遠嗎?


怎麽熬過?聼聼音樂,打打吉他,看看棒球,甚至喝喝啤酒。至少你們還會一起過,我就自己一個,東西馬兩邊完全不一樣的人,就是兩個世界!

或許最後你們會像我一樣,找到那份溫馨,因爲其實哪個世界都一樣,都會有雪中送炭的人,有準備聆聽你的心聲的人,有好料永遠不會忘記你的人;不一樣的只是形式。

剩下的問題就是怎樣平衡這些感覺,去適應,然後去!選擇!珍惜;不選擇通通珍惜,不止會很累,而且到頭來反而傷害自己。

Timing

The world cup up until now has probably taught an important lesson - Timing.

Nicolas Anelka, he scored in Dublin for france to have that all important away goal, and then sent home early after abusing his gaffer. I guess most people do not realise that this is Anelka's first World Cup, and at the age of 31, possibly his last. Perhaps there wasn't much he could have done to avoid being sent home, but the timing has certainly not been the right one.


Perhaps the most obvious example is Ghana's Asamoah Gyan. He missed that penalty that turn Luis Suarez from villain to hero in one kick. He scored his penalty in the shootout, but it was too late. If he had scored, there wouldn't be the shootout. Africa would still be dreaming.
Kaka. To be honest I feel quite lucky to be able to find this picture. This was exactly the timing that I wanted to say. Robinho broke on the left, by passing 3 players, before passing it to Fabiano, who back heeled the ball to the on rushing kaka. who then curled it to the high far post. Stekelenburg got a hand to it, and it went out for a corner. If that was an inch lower or to the left, or had kaka took a second to really aim it, that would have been the goal of the tournament. It didn't. Timing was wrong.

Many more examples. Like Korea's Ki Sung Yeung, primary set piece setup player. Countless times korea had dead ball at the edge of the box, Ki Sung Yeung's cross just past his team mates at the near post and went to nothing. Of course Korea scored at least a couple of goals through his assists, but had the timing of the runs or the deliveries been bettter...
Football really represents a lot of things in life, just like I supported Japan because I loved the attitude, the industrious, and not the least the hairstyles. They went out in the round of 16, but it should be considered a succesful tournament. For this tournament, Nakamura Shunsuke's era succesfully ended with the rise of Honda Keisuke. Defender Yuto Nagatomo is attracting interests from Roma, Birmingham and a couple of clubs from Serie A and La Liga each. Goalkeeper Eiji Kawashima is joining Belgium side Lierse SK.
Just like a lot of things in life, if you get what you want but not what you need, stuck in reverse. If the timing is not right, it might even be better not to have it.

俠盜·驕雄

儸索高爾主演的這部電影,我的評價是中上。羅賓漢是否真有此人也不一定,更不用說他的歷史。所以如果要欣賞這部電影,絕對不能夠用歷史的角度來看。比如有些人說男爵要約翰囯王簽署的自由大憲章是在他上位十六年后才發生的。總之,羅賓漢是個傳説故事,導演用自己的方式透過這位人民英雄把他的想法表達出來。

儸嗦高爾有被投訴說他沒有學好英格蘭的腔調,很多時候都是蘇格蘭腔,甚至還出現愛爾蘭腔。訪談中被問及出現愛爾蘭腔他還生氣走人。我整個過程中會間隔地問自己說儸嗦高爾這次演羅賓漢和以前演羅馬戰士有什麽不同。我覺得分別不大但是是有的,感覺就在他的瀟灑,和導演設計的羅賓漢一樣,羅馬戰士那個就比較憂愁。

讓我很費解的是法國人登陸英格蘭時乘坐的登陸船,和二戰諾曼底戰役用的Higgins Boat很相似。Higgins Boat 獨特的eureka形狀是來自于800多年后的Andrew Higgins自己的靈感。這一點很顯然沒有做好。

打鬥場面還好,只是輸給了Braveheart。最後讓羅賓漢用弓箭射死壞人,看了都過癮。騎馬跨越英格蘭翠綠的山脈,風景很漂亮,值得讚賞。

但是我最喜歡這部電影所要說的,就是自由是鮮血換回來的。羅賓漢的父親是這樣,羅賓漢也是。被外人挑撥導致英格蘭面對内戰,常年受壓迫的英格蘭百姓聯合起來反抗,連法國軍隊兵臨城下都還要和國王討自由民主。國王答應了刀劍才一致向外。最後國王反口,注定又一輪的爭鬥。這就是那把劍上說的,一直一直起義,直到被壓迫的綿羊大衆變成獅子 - Rise and Rise Again, Until Lambs Become Lions。

Friendly: Japan v South Korea: the other point of view

2-1 to the Taeguk Warriors. Lets face it. Both teams weren't really on their top form, apart from of course, the obvious Park Ji Sung. The reason he wore number 14 today, instead of his usual 7, might be because he's twice smarter than James Bond!

South Korea's defence were not really tested, and I think that is what concerns Huh Jung Moo. They were expected to be on the counter while Japan having most of the possessions. But Park Ji Sung were so good, that Japan basically had Shunsuke Nakamura as defensive midfielder, while Yasuhito Endo played centre half.

And Lee Chung Yong and Ki Sung Yong has not really clicked on that well. Lee Chung Yong, Bolton's player of the year, persistently fouling the Japanese. You could argue he's breaking up the plays, but that is not what he does best and not the best way he could offer Korea. Celtic' Ki fared better, dangerous deliveries from set pieces all the time. And Korean strikers were really hungry, getting behind by thier pace and kept Nakazawa and Abe on their toes.

Cha Du Ri, the great Bum Kun's son, at right back, is a secret weapon. He's fit, fast and skilfull. The Knight of the Korean team. Park Chu Young didnt involve much either. So the thing for Korea is they are playing together as a team, but not to their full potential, again, except Park Ji Sung. He's great!

Japan started with a surprise lineup, with Yuki Abe at centre half replacing Tulio, Nagatomo swiched from the left to the right, replacing Atsuto Uchida at right back while Yasuyuki Konno took his place at left back. Endo started as a Pirlo like defensive midfielder, Okubo took his left midfield role. This somewhat Milan like formation stars Keisuke Honda as the playmaker.

I thought it was understandable. The selections. Tulio and Nakazawa are first choice centrehalfs, but if they are injured like what happened four years ago, Japan is really limited at this position. Hence trying out Abe and Konno aren't the worst case.

What surprised me was Okubo. This man neither passes well nor shoots well, why is he included in the squad instead of perhaps Shinji Kagawa or the young defender Maya Yoshida. Work rate wise, he's probably good, but this only happens when Japan does not play well. Sorry to him, but i was glad he was carried off the stretcher, Japan wont play well with him on the pitch.

Like the Koreans, the formation did not work well. Neither Nakamura nor Endo was comfortable with the crowded central midfield, effectively cutting off the supply line to Honda. Makoto Hasebe fared slightly better, his long legs were put to good use on those small Korean strikers.

The first goal Narazaki was to be blamed. Poor positioning from an experienced goalkeeper. Of course, the defence shouldnt have let Park Ji Sung shoot in the first place.

Japan's overall play was bad. No direction, and too complicated short passes. It only got better when Kengo Nakamura came on, and tried to drift out wide or slot the direct pass. Morimoto looked good though, and the set pieces were awful. Still time to work on it though. If there's a time for Okada to be firm about his changes, it is now. the recommended starting eleven on a 442 formation-

Goalkeeper Kawaguchi
Right Back Uchida
Centrehalves Tulio and Nakazawa
Left back Nagatomo
Right wing Shunsuke Nakamura(His best years were the Parkhead years, so let him play that way. )
Central midfield - Hasebe and Honda (again, play them where they are the best, Hasebe the Makelele and Honda the free-and-only-attack-playmaker)
Left Midfield - Endo (He needs the space and he puts in quality crosses)
Strikers - Morimoto and Okazaki

Forget about Tamada, he wont score in this world cup and he wont play in the next. The future lies in Morimoto and Okazaki, for the future experience and their pace. Matsui can come on late to keep the pressure on the opposing defence.

All in all, Japan definitely benefitted from this friendly more than Korea. The objectives were achieved, at least he knows you cant play like this. Korea were never really tested.

Wanna get to the semis? Time to be brave Mr Okada.

1 + 1 = 3

很久以前,大概 8 年前吧,那時候的他像我現在一樣。他,L先生,那時是來代課的,教體育。因爲那年他的兩個朋友也有來代課,所以印象很深。其中一個我到現在還有去她的部落格。

可能是L先生每次體育都跟著教科書,讓我們做什麽有的沒的,都沒有得打球,所以我也很不期待他的課。有幾次也不知道爲什麽,直接就坐在課室裏講體育課的道理。以前也應該不知天高地厚,沒經過大腦就把心裏的話說出來。

一次記得他說過,我們都知道1+1=2,但是如果全世界都說1+1=3,那麽我們也要跟。前天回想起這句話,才知道原來我到現在還是不能夠同意他的説法。水瓶座的我是很理想化、固執的。

Up we go! Leeds Forever!


Forget about the lab reports and test next week, forget about the feud Simon Grayson was rumoured to have with Jermaine Beckford. Forget all the slumps we've had since beating Scum, forget about where or who should play in our midfield, or who we should have signed, forget all other sickness, depression and debts that football has given to us. Beat Bristol Rovers and we're up!


I rejected the invitation to go watch 初戀紅豆冰,a film that is at the very top of my this month's movie list. Curse Leeds, if they had beaten Charlton last week I could have gone. But typical Leeds. Missed golden opportunities, fucked it up, lose the game.


Like the hour before we beat Scum, I was playing aircraft shooting game, so I did the same hoping for good omens. And tune in to only miss the first 30 seconds of the game. Then the streaming wasn't good and I finally sorted it out with another stream from Sopcast.



Then Gradel got sent off. Becks and Doyle, as seen above,was virtually fighting him. I guess he knew he was stupid and hoped that the ref could be more just by sending the other Bristol lad off. Beckford and Doyle pulled him away, and St Jermaine was saying what looked to me, "come on, get off now, we'll win it for you". Max calmed down and went off. Leeds started playing better football, without Gradel throwing the ball that often. but the penetrations always ended because there were no focal point on our play. no one took charge. everyone just rolled it on to another.

Half time came. and I went off to fetch my dinner of 3 loafs of bread and a can of heineken. And when I came out of the bathroom, I was thinking Bristol scoring. Then the 2nd half begins.

Soft challenges from Hughes and Collins meant Duffy scored for Bristol, and I was glad I was spot on and that it happened early. We've still got time. 10 men v 11 men wasnt going to be a problem, afterall we beat them 4-0 back in Memorial Stadium. And then the inspired sub Jonny Howson came on. He's my favourite player. Probably not being at the top of his form recently, been on the bench. I dont think he's the new Lee Bowyer, but we all know this boy can play. And if I were the manager, he would have started this game.


Seems like the rests had done him good. Came on and bossed the right flank for us. Then becchio layed him off, and what a goal that was. Screamer! "Ya Beauty" was what i posted in OMJ. THAT WAS important. I realised we'd do it right there. Then moments later we hit the post, Bromby it was i think. then their goalie threw straight to johnson, he tried to score, but the ball bounced back, and as luck has it, in front of St Jermaine. 2-1. We're going up. Even Grayson was jumping!

Then they crossed the ball acrossed our goal a couple of times. their nippy striker kuffour was a constant threat from throughballs to him, higgs saved them all well. And Collins hit the post. then I saw Sanchez Watt warming up, was he gonna take becchio or beckford off? I hope its beckford, and he did took beckford off. I stood up and applauded him, just like the 38000 did in elland road, sensing its the last time we'd see him playing for us. FOr all we slated him, he scored the winner today. And as some pointed out, Howson was massive. showed maturity by holding up the ball at the corner. Thats a real gem we have there.


Then pitch invasion started. and the party began.

Ip Man 2 葉問二

As I was leaving the cinema, a lot of people were talking (discussing/concluding/whatever you like) about what they just saw. From what I heard, these people are dumbs, and this film is average.

Let’s just begin from where Ip Man 1 ended. That was a hit, a real thriller and a major box office success which skyrocketed Ip Man and arguably Donnie Yen’s fame. So the producers decided to take advantage of that, and the sequel was planned. Fair enough. The version I had, was that it was going to be about Ip’s life in Hong Kong and most interestingly, Bruce Lee. And then it turned out that Bruce's rights couldnt be obtained and he only appeared for a short while, portrayed by a kid.

The major mistake that the producers made, I thought, was continuing the adaptation of patriotism of the Chinese. In Ip Man, the theme was spot on because the antagonist were the Imperial Japanese Army. But this was the 50s(Ip man only left for Hong Kong after the civil war has ended). To portray the British as bad as that was inappropriate, made British looked dumb.

Come to talk of the era, 杜宇航, Sammo Hung's principal pupil, wore Beanies and jeans, which is something that is rare even among the white people,let alone the chinese. The whole settings and backgrounds always provide a feeling of 70s, sort of feeling the presence of Bruce Lee. In this, i think the producers failed terribly.

The scenes of a chinese martial artist fighting a western Boxer, we have already witnessed in Huo Yuan Jia. To be more accurate, Huo never fought any wrestlers nor boxers, in both cases his opponent withdrew. That about sums up the fact that a martial artist, let alone a master of Ip Man's calibre, would easily knock down western boxers in a round. Boxing is a sport, martial arts is not a sport. I find it silly when people do not realise this simple fact and simply exaggerates the strength of the boxers and eventually, the ability of Master Ip. Even Chuck Norris, a former US Air Force member and martial artist himself, couldn't fight Bruce Lee.

As movie goers, I do feel disappointed, and fooled by the producers who made that fight. And if that boxer was a world champion, why wasn't he fighting in MSG? For Simon Yam's character, I haven't known someone who survived after being shot at the head.

Donnie Yen is impeccable once more. Simply a brilliant performance from him again, and quite honestly is the only positive from the movie. He could be right about the third sequel though, as it is already disastrous.

艋舺 Monga


艋舺這部電影,就是那種像新加坡導演梁自強說的,不可能迎合所有人的口味。如果做得太中性,又會被批沒有感覺,普通,甚至抄襲。臺灣很多偶像我都不是很熟,所以會看這部電影主要是他們的宣傳。
故事主要從趙又廷的角度來看。他是個學生,被欺負時用踩到的糞便把敵人趕走,讓阮經天的小幫派相中,湊他進來“五個手指才能代表一個拳頭”。然後再一步步從小混混長大成黑道,然後被捲入種種黑道的糾紛。反映了那個時期的臺灣社會。更多故事情節請自己看電影吧。
我個人覺得阮經天演得很棒。整個黑道故事演得很像一部英國電影This is England,把一個時代的氣氛表現出來。當然這一點可能不是每個人能夠同意,但是一部電影也不可能完完全全把八十年代的臺灣演出來,剩下的就留給下一部電影吧。但與This is England不同的是,臺灣黑道自己的特色也很明顯,說是說不清,但是你不可能在日本、香港、美國的電影中看到這樣的黑道。艋舺裏看到的,是“正港的臺灣黑道”!!
就像This Is England那樣,那個時代風靡的東西都不能夠遺漏。這是我們的文化,電影保留下來了,讓以後的人至少能夠看到,我們是這樣走過來的。This Is England中有Ben Sherman的衣服,艋舺中有趙又廷披頭四式的髮型(其實Oasis的前任吉他手Noel Gallagher也是這樣的髮型),花花的衣服,這不都是我爸青春時期的東西嗎?可能那個年代很多人都想把自己變成那樣。就像七十年代的人都希望自己是李小龍。就連那種花花衣,我小時候也有一件!還有A計劃!
Air Supply的歌 Making Love out of Nothing at All... 這首歌那個時候在歐美不是特別特別紅,也還算經典,而李玖哲翻唱得也很不錯。
到最後志龍身為老大,重要時刻的作用根本不像老大,反而蚊子是把Geta看成自己的老爸也好,對廟口忠心也好,站出來搞清楚事情。
最後蚊子死在路上,把血看成櫻花,進入平靜的世界。這一幕來結束電影做得很好,總結了電影,把觀衆帶離戯裏的時代,最後説明人類的渺小。其實生命不就是這樣嗎?我們心中都有一個或是好幾個小小的願望,願意用一生來換取的願望。有人希望可以環游世界,有人希望嫁個好人,而蚊子只是希望能夠到日本看真正的櫻花...

Back To Basics

I had the luck to watch a documentary on Soviet Russian's Moon Robot. Before this, my personal view of robot is more towards the western view, having a certain degree of fear to robots.

And then I also watched the stories of Imperial Japanese Navy's ground breaking I400 carrier subs. And how it became the forefather of nuclear-missile-carrying-subs of the cold war and now, that submarines can attack land targets.


The Soviet Moon Robot was called Lunokhod, a top secret mission of the Soviets to control robots and explore the moon from earth. So top secret, that it was only in 1997 that NASA begins to adapt this technology in Mars exploration, and its original designer Alexander Kemurdjian recognized.

So I was led to think, that robotics, is the future, just like the nuclear sub adopted the IJN carrier sub. Then, by chance there was a group of lecturers and boys running for the Robocon Competition. Its only their sophomore year in it and improvement was the main thing. Someone had to start doing these stuffs in the University and I'm glad they did. So to be able to be some part of it was particularly pleasing. As the first two days at the lab confirms our greatest fear, that is we're nothing even with 2 years of degree study under our belts.

Its a sad fact that most students couldn't see that they are worthless with that paper, especially when a whole bunch of his mates could. just like a banana who stays green after everyother turned yellow. After two days, i'd say i'm less creative and the few around me really have a future in this.

I even went to the very basics of robots, that what is the definition of robots. Perhaps that is why people says I'm weird, because I look at things differently. and when sometimes its true, they couldn't take it. The idea of will smith's movie called I Robot was great, that was what robot should mean. Robots should be machines that evolve in their thinking, because they conveys "a sense that has its own intent or agency." WHat we were building were, according to this definition, just a machine which runs a series of programmed codes.

From what I see, we're participating this thing in a very casual way, and should not expect anything at the end of it other than memories and knowledge. But its already clear that a few arent gonna give in.

The other day an issue of car washing was raised, that whether soap or detergent or whatever its called, should be used. Two right twats say they arent good because they eat up your car, they are acidic. I'm not lying when I say its the first time i see someone who washes their car with only water and cloth. Two years ago i refused to participate in the washing of a friend's car when they say no soap was needed. What the fuck i say, even the car washer uses soap. One of them never got over it and its been cold war till now. And I've planned a vacation together in two weeks' time!

It takes me back to the question of what am I doing here? If I couldn't understand them or they couldn't understand me, why did I come here?

Andrei Arshavin

Well I've heard Arsenal fans been very unsure of Andrei Arshavin. WEll here's the stats -
in 22 starts,
7 goals, 14 wins, 4 draws and losses each.

He's got a goal ratio of 0.16, that is better than Lampard (0.13), Modric (0.05), Gerrard (0.1), Tevez (0.14), and even Fabregas (0.09)!!!!
He's got a shots on target ratio of 0.7, better than Lampard (0.57), Giggs(0.56), Modric (0.55), Gerrard (0.53), Tevez (0.57) and even Fabregas (0.62)!!!

Those are the two most important stats, if you ask me, for an attacking midfielder. He tops the shots on target list, and came second behind giggs in the goal ratio list, among all top 6 clubs' stalwart attacking midfielders. And when you consider he's not even taking the freekicks and penalties, that for me is impressive.

The fault of why Arsenal was so disappointed, especially last weekend's defeat, does not lie on Arshavin. Perhaps the likes of Nasri or Eduardo or even Rosicky could ask that bit more of themselves for the club...

又一年了

好多人都覺得2009過得特別快。今天二月二號了,是一個朋友的生日。365天前的那個早上我還很記得,我為了那一刻足足煩了3個月,最後很貿貿然就和一個在我那時工作的書店前擺攤的老兄買了一件禮物給她。想了想其實那個東西很不實際,因爲她的生活裏應該好幾年都用不上。今年很抱歉時機不好沒能親自交給你,乾脆沒有買了,無心吧?

可是真的,去年我真的很希望你可以儅我的女朋友,但是事實是我們在一起不會有什麽結果,我們不會去經營,沒合起來也不算壞事。前陣子我兄弟(她舅舅)跟我們逛街時一直跟我說你什麽會回來,第二天就走之類的,我其實也想見見你,可是我見到你我真的不敢和你説話,真的害羞。不過也謝謝你,因爲你我想了很多,成長了。感謝你還儅我是你“長輩”,久久一次還會msn上聊聊天。

一個月前我瀟灑地離開了這輩子最好賺的工作,一直很不忿。老師縂覺得我沒盡力,是來混的,可其實那些臭小子的進步與否我個人看得很重。辭職了一天后,去銀行碰見一個一天前還是我的學生的富家小孩,媽媽牽著他的手,他眼睛一直瞪著我看,叫我老師。我感動慘了。或許這就是所謂的桃李滿天下,老師們年復一年付出的回報和動力吧。

過後開始拿起吉他了。一開始我滿腔熱血的,可是後來不知怎麽煩了,不想玩了,沒怎麽練習。上個周末偶然聽見我妹放五月天的歌,簡單的節拍和感動的歌詞,讓我看待吉他又有了一開始的那種熱愛。小説看了一半也荒廢了,還好最近網上買的另一本還沒來,這個星期定下心看應該可以解決了。

再過兩個星期我就21了,方宇說的 - 目光千里之外,兩手屁股後邊,看得上的夠不着,夠不着的看不上,想的多,做得少,浮躁。有個兄弟說吃這麽大了連一個新的洗衣機也買不起給老媽,沒用啊!我始終沒忘記,馬老大說的“你媽家裏看起來都是正經人,別老吊兒的。”再過兩年就要出來混飯吃了,浮躁。

今年很抱歉沒能送你禮物,我希望以後年年可以送你禮物!漂亮的,生日快樂啊!
