diawali dengan Palm Zire 72 gue yg out of the blue tiba2 hard reset dan semua datanya ikut hilang (gak belajar dari ilmu pas Komas... gue gak backup sama sekali hiks..), disusul dengan stylus-nya yg suka "lari" pas mencet, akhirnya gue putuskan bahwa sudah saatnya PDA gue pensiun. on the same time, V3 gue baterenya bocor parah dan suka mendadak nge-hang yg layar putih gitu. setelah pemikiran cukup lama, gue putuskan mo jual 2 barang itu dan beli 1 smartphone.
browsing2 di internet, gue selalu ended up dengan smartphone2 yang OS-nya Windows. gue dah trauma banget pake HP yang OS-nya Windows karena hobi buanget nge-hang. apparently kalo aplikasi ditutup, dia ga beneran nge-quit. tapi running on the background. alhasil begitu dah jalanin 6-7 aplikasi, langsung deh mulai nge-lag, dan ujung2nya nge-hang. asliii.. kapok banget. gue sempet ngerasain pas pake Motorola M2000 (kalo gak salah, lupa2 inget serinya).
1-1nya harapan gue adalah Palm Treo 650 dan 680 yang merupakan generasi terakhir yg masih pake Palm OS. the thing is, 650 udah gak diproduksi sementara 680 di atas budget yg gue siapin.
jadi tadi jalan2 lah ke Semanggi, melihat2 dan gak sengaja stumble ke salah satu counter yg jual Treo 650 dalam keadaan muluuuuuuussss.... setelah dipegang2 dan dilihat2, you know one of those times when you just GOTTA own the stuff? that was what i felt. gue seneng dg fact gue ga perlu ngeliat logo "jendela", dan ga perlu was2 lagi tengah2 dipake terus nge-hang. :P
so i bought it. very good bargain. dan sekarang ojochan punya maenan baruuu! :D
throughout my childhood, my mom kept on playing these 2 videos for me: Motown 25th Anniversary and Motown 50th Anniversary. so all those years i was practically listening to The Temptations, Fourtops, Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson, Smokey Robinson, Patti LaBelle, Little Richard, and alot more. i've never stopped loving this particular genre, even up till now. and here's the very least examples why (sinds, you'll love these):
the soul diva (prolly one of the reasons why i started luving gospel music)
and this is when michael showed his moon-walk for the very first time in a live performance (he's just SO great! i'd definitely cry if i were there :P):
Part 1 - Jackson 5 Medley
Part 2 - Michael Jackson
how come people don't listen to this kind of music anymore??? sebel pas lagi nonton videonya sama adek gue, terus dia nunjuk Smokey Robinson, "Emangnya dia terkenal ya?". *grunts*
But there must've been a Death Star Canteen, yeah? There must've been a cafeteria downstairs, in between battles where Darth Vader could just chill and go down.
Darth Vader (DV): I will have the penne ala arabiatta.
Canteen Staff (CS): You'll need a tray.
DV: Do you know who I am?
CS: Do you know who /I/ am?
DV: This is not a game of "Who The F*ck Are You?". For /I/ am Vader. Darth Vader. Lord Vader. I can kill you with a single thought.
CS: Well you'll still need a tray.
DV: No, I will not need a tray. I do not need a tray to kill you. I can kill you with /out/ a tray, with a power of the force, which is strong within me, even though I could kill you with a tray if I so wish. For I would hack at your neck with a thin bit until the blood flow upon canteen floor...
CS: *interrupts* No, the food is hot. You'll need a tray to put the food on.
DV: Oh I see, the food is hot? I'm sorry I did not realize hahahaha Oh, tray for the... Yes, I thought you were challenging me to the fight till death.
CS: Fight till death? This is canteen, I work here.
DV: Yes but I am Vader, I am Lord Vader? Everyone challenges me to the fight till death. Darth Vader. I am Darth Vader. It's a Lord Vader. It's a Lord Darth Vader. It's Lord Vader of Cheeme (me: how do you spell this?). It's Lord Baron von Vaderham. The Death Star? I run the Death Star.
CS: What's the Death Star?
DV: /This/ is the Death Star. You're /in/ the Death Star. I run this star.
CS: This is a star?
DV: This is a f*cking star! I run it. I'm your boss.
CS: You're Mr. Stevens?
DV: No, I am.... Who is Mr. Stevens?
CS: He's head of catering.
DV: I'm /not/ head of catering! I am Vader. I can kill catering with a thought.
DV: I can kill you all, I can kill /me/ with a thought. Just... I'll get a tray. F*ck it.
DV: *go through a pile of trays* This one is wet. And this one is wet. And this one is wet. This one is wet. This one is wet. This one is wet. This one is wet. This one is wet. This one is wet. This one is wet. This one is wet.
DV: Did you dry these in a rainforest? Why with the power of the Death Star do we not have a tray that is f*cking dry??
"Deep down, everyone wants to believe they can be hardcore. But being hardcore isn't just about being tough. It's about acceptance. Sometimes you have to give yourself permission to not be hardcore for once. You don't have to be tough every minute of every day. It's okay to let down your guard. In fact there are moments when it's the best thing you can possibly do… as long as you choose your moments wisely."
