Kim Jong-il aka The Successor (born Yuri Irsenovich Kim; February 16, 1941. Died on December 17, 2011 of the age of 69) The North Korean government announced his death on December 19, 2011.
Oh man we have the same birthdate of the month and day. February 16…
The whole world knows that Kim Jong-il has been starving his own people in order to pursue his game plans with Nuclear Weapons. But I'm a little confused here. Kim Jong-il seems more famous than any super stars that includes Elvis Presley and Michael Jackson, as far of mourning goes. The crying doesn't surprised me much, Koreans happens to be very emotional people. Just check out Korean movies.. lots of powerful emotional outbursts. Even this one Youtuber who called himself a Korean Ninja is also an emotional person. He would be talking about a ninja star and gets emotional at the same time, crying over the day he first made his own ninja star. And his an American.
Anyways, I found out that I wasn't the only one thinking if it was a fake cry or a survival cry. In this site, The Hollywood Gossip says, these people watch some sad movies including "The Notebook", before attending to the funeral or any farewell ceremonies for Kim Jong-il, and put on a good show. Hollywood man.. thats what they say.
A glimpse of military hell march from North Korea.
I was baby sitting audrey after taking her away from her crib while mother was making her some milk. I didn't like the tune of her cry so I got up from my bed, took her to my keyboards and let her play to keep her quite. Her hands was too strong pounding on my keys, so I pulled her away from my synthesizers. And then she starts kicking at the keys to make a tune.. I made a video to show her folks. I played around with iMovie a bit to shorten it up.. And it turned out pretty cool.
Excuse the trashcan from the background.. I should of emptied it.
This protest started form January of this year. I probably heard about it, but uprising are everywhere now in the middle-east and anywhere else around the world. And then, I recently find out how fucking brutal it is, excuse my french. Now, I don't know these people, and I could careless because I have my own issues to deal with too. Their own military forces randomly started shooting peaceful protesters and innocent un-armed civilians. No rubber bullets, no tear gasses, no water hoseses, but real bullets.. in the year 2011. Damn man… I really had to blog it for my own record. I don't even know Syria. I did have co-workers and classmates from graduate school that were from Syria. I was invited to a Syrian night club once. They love wearing tight muscle shirts and leather jackets, they also likes leather shoes like some Russians do. Anyways, one time, I asked where Syria was, and this Syrian classmate back from 1995 says it's right above Jerusalem, and they are like Jews. Syria is also mentioned in the Holy Bible. Over the years, after knowing about geography, Syria is in the middle-east.
From the way I see it, they used and still using hollowed point bullets for their assault rifles, and Israeli desert eagle semi-auto pistols. Ammunitions and handguns that can make devastating effects to the victim's bodies and to psychologically ruins the people around the victims. But of-course these soldiers are trained to take it just because they are soldiers. And soldiers must not think like civilians. Same with civilians, some have the heart for graphic scenes and some are just stupid like chicken brains that's feels little pain. These soldiers probably brag at each other how brutal they are with cheerful reminisces of hand claps from their sergeants and commanders, and how these sergeants and commanders proud they were to their soldiers eating live chickens and rabbits, like pit-bulls on training. These soldiers probably think of it as a celebrity status.. maybe not even educated in general. Just educated well on their training as soldiers for Bashar al-Assad as ruthless security forces to keep him in control. I'm sure these ruthless soldiers gets payed well for their duties, they'll kill anyone who gets in their way including their own cousins.

Imagine the police that are supposed to protect you from serial killers, rapists, burglars, and etc.. are just as worse. And the soldiers that are supposed to protect you from invaders, are the raiders.. just because you want democracy. This is not an imagination.. it's happening in Syria…
I got this from amazon the other day. Used but fair price. Some dent here and there. Built rugged. But so far so good... I like how clear it is. It almost captures the same feel as if you were back at the place where you took it. The downer part: it gets really pixilated in the low lights, looking like a regular mobile phone. And audio capture isn't strong enough (film are stronger for audio). Other than that, worth keeping, and worth buying a brand new one. Having three of these is cool if your doing some active projects (like sports and music blogs) and study your progress.
What's next on camcorders in my lifetime man. From 8mm film cameras, to VHS camcorders, to pinhole size digital surveillances slash camcorders. Next thing you know, they'll make camcorders to the extreme, digital atom camcorders built as contact lenses. Up to 100 TB memories. Not HD but 3D Blu-ray Quality. Transporting the captured videos to your main computer or digital storage would run trough bluetooth using speech codes recognition. Nothing has to pull out, insert, upload, and download. All in the air from your contact lenses. And hacked proof. In the future, they'll probably take privacy to the extreme. Prison time and everything, even death penalties in some other countries. What if that contact lenses also comes with additional apps - for instance, it can glow, used as infrared, see computer datas, and works for the blind perhaps? lol...
So thats that, Im still waiting for the fish eye lens for it. Along with a dock where I can place it in my windshield or on a bike and etc…
This project is done. It was done maybe 3 weeks ago. Maybe a month now. Capturing a bunch of VHS, Hi8-8mm, and MiniDV tapes, unto the digital era. Sometimes I still use the Hi8 just because I like how the video quality is. All I need to finish up too now are to continue scanning a bunch of old 35mm film photos, mostly from a shoe box and family photo albums that are falling apart. I was thinking, what if 2012 is really an accurate predictions from the incas calendar as a world's end. I just had to preserve them all man. From old films, to old 35mm photos. Just don't plan on placing me in a mental institution yet though.. because regardless to that, I really need to preserve them digitally, whenever possible.
Anyways, If you also wanted to preserve your old film videos digitally, I would recommend El Gato Video Capture. It's pretty easy to use. But only works on the latest Mac or PC.
Here is a sample video. It's been taken from a low light but it's vivid enough to watch them on my computer. They can be burned on DVDs too and then watch them on your HDTV and whatever. But to me, I intended them to be watched on my computer and on my iPhone, or to be uploaded in Facebook or Youtube.
Here is another sample of me playing Black Ops - Nazi Zombies. I haven't played this game lately so level 9 is the farthest I've been for this video. I'll post more later, to document my progress. Kinda dark, only because it's been uploaded online, and the game itself is dark. The original video is much clearer.
It's been a long while now.. I guess that would make it 5 or 6 years of me doing this music productions. Which started out doing track layering of loops from Gargeband with my first apple laptop computer. The G4 iBook. And then decided to go a little further. And a bit more further. Until the creative process is pretty close where I wanted to be. But then, to me.. it doesn't really matter how creative the tracks are if the sound quality is poor. Therefore, I research online about sound processing. My family have this stereo since the mid 80's and it has these racks with pretty similar fashion compared to my family stereo. Treble, Bass, and the EQs is nothing new, it's what I used to mess around with when recording mixtapes back then. So I took that same concept and hopefully they'll work the same way when I do produce and record tracks. These would be my studio racks.
So far I got these three.
Presonus Amplifier - it has all the basic needs.
Just waiting for another one which would be this one here..
And then this Rack Cabinet. This would go on top of my desk. Then cables of course. Even an outlet strip.
I finally had the advantages to test my canon sprint 35mm point & point camera. Getting it developed still a pain in my wallet but these results are well worth the surprise. Got it developed at Walgreens, same place where I got the film. And so far so good. I'll definitely be using this camera for other things, other than events. If I happened to be out taking pictures, this camera will also be going with me.
Steve Jobs, February 24, 1955 – October 5, 2011 wikipedia
The first computer I ever work on was of a Macintosh back in my 7th grade 1986, at Quimby Oak Middle School. San Jose, California. It had the floppy disk I first thought it was a small vinyl record inside of it. It was a fun computer. Made rockets out of the text and then print them out on papers. It could of been a PC too, but I do remember an Apple sign.
Again, what is up with number 5. Banks starts charging 5 bucks as well. It's funny how the world works sometimes in it's own rules. I was just tex writing my "private journal rants" in my iPone (instead of yelling it on someones face) about the difference between Eagles and Pigeons in my own opinions. And Mr. Steve Jobs is what I consider one of the eagles, along side with Bob Marley. That same day while at Rasputin record store, my second cousin Mike G told me Steve Jobs just passed away. Pancreas Cancer it is. Dammit I will never have the opportunity to see the man on stage. I wanted to work for Apple years before as a Quality Assurance Tech but I cant stand office politics. Actually, I never really pushed in to it. I am just a hardcore Apple user today.
I was about to Google of a market place back at my home town in the Philippines. The market is called SM. It's a mall that seemed to be popular back in The Philippines. I was just checking if they have one in my home town. And do have it.. in Laoag City around eleven miles away.
I'm probably stressing more than this dude right now as he tries to get away from the sunny hot blocked fence. All these economic down-terms, foreclosures, terrorists threats from the medias, and from around the hood.. Not knowing whose who. I guess more and more are desperate for some bread and willing to get payed to screw anyone they want to. man o man... The blocks are getting hotter and hotter. And weirder... in a lame way. I feel like moving to Canada. Fly away and into the trees like this praying mantis... (sarcasm partly true).
Listening to an LP record I recently purchased from the record store. This is good bargain for only a buck. Like opening an old treasure chest. Im going to need two extra file crates for these vinyl records. Damn… my sound system are getting distorted here as I get my iPhone close to my monitor cabinet. It needs a compressor rack. Soon man, I'll have me a complete sound processor racks for my sound system.
I had this up in my Facebook account but it was kicked out. I had the Danny Elfman soundtrack for the movie Edward Scissorhands. Therefore, there.. the soundtrack is of Danny Elfman.
I tried to shun this pigeon away with a flashlight for trespassing and pooping. But this pigeon just stood there. Even as I get closer and closer.. this pigeon stood still until the sun rises from 3am...
List of Victims from September 11, 2001 Based from resources I got online, with factual details. And not as shady or full of paranoia than what I sense from other sources. There are several of them, which doesn't make much sense. One example is the Tourist Guy where he has a photo of himself on top of one of the tower seconds before the impact of an American Airline Airplane. Turned out the tourist guy is well and alive somewhere in Brazil.

I'm blogging pretty much about everything. Even to the most silliest things. So please "do not" take some of my opinions, journals, reports, and researches too seriously or act unto something destructive due to what you gathered from Wasabi Sandwich. I'm just a blogger and I do not intend for anyone to follow what I blog about. Unless for positive purposes - like maybe buying my music later. Consider my warning as a disclaimer.
