She's Out of My Life

Just as with many of you out there, I grew up listening to songs by Michael Jackson. It's just a great pity he's gone now =( . There's just so many songs I remember, and one fine day, I took out my age-old ipod mini and took a listen to the songs in it. (I haven't touched my ipod mini in at least 2 years)

As I was listening, this song came on, and I just felt I had to share this song with all of you. I absolutely love the lyrics, I think it's so easy for us to connect with the emotions in this song. I'm sure at some point or another, we fail to see the people that were always there for us, let pride get in the way, and that stops us from telling them just how much they mean to us or how much we appreciate and love them..till it's too late.

Don't ever wait till it's way too late to tell your loved ones your feelings, much less let pride and anger get in the way during an arguement with a loved one. Life is unpredictable, treasure your loved ones, and never regret not telling them how much you love them..every single day. Sometimes Life offers us no second chance, but should you ever do lose them, and a second chance awaits, take that chance and cherish them from that day on.

It's one of my favourite songs by MJ, I'm not sure how many of you have heard it, (you might have heard the covers done by Josh Groban and 98 Degrees) but it's She's Out of My Life. I've also put up the video from youtube, though I've set it to my blog's song.

PS: This song is specially dedicated to you (i'm sure you know who you are), I hope the lyrics speak to your heart just as it spoke to mine =)

She's Out of My Life - Michael Jackson

She's out of my life
She's out of my life
And I don't know whether to laugh or cry
I don't know whether to live or die
And it cuts like a knife
She's out of my life

It's out of my hands
It's out of my hands
To think for two years she was here
And I took her for granted I was so cavalier
Now the way that it stands
She's out of my hands

So I've learned that love's not possession
And I've learned that love won't wait
Now I've learned that love needs expression
But I learned too late

She's out of my life
She's out of my life
Damned indecision and cursed pride
Kept my love for her locked deep inside
And it cuts like a knife
She's out of my life

What is That?

I came across this Greek short film, made in 2007, and it absolutely touched my heart. There are lots of definitions to what Love is, or what Love should be. Its a simple film, but to me, this film captures the essence of Love and what it means to me. It's not about flowers, chocolates or sweet-nothings, neither is it an emotion with just one facet. I hope it touches your heart, just as it touched mine. =)

With Love,

Love is patient, Love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always preserves."
-- 1 Corinthians 13:4-7

Some random musings..

Some things to put a smile to my readers' faces on this gloomy Monday! =)

Are Women Born like this? =)

This is a real video from a French documentary about Africa. There are trees that grow in Africa which, once a year, produce very juicy fruits that ferment to contain alcohol. Because there is a shortage of water, as soon as the fruits are ripe, animals come there to help protect themselves from the heat.
What happens next? Watch for yourselves =)


PS: I'm sorry for the lack of updates on me, it's the exam period again =( but I'll write a random entry soon enough!

BMW GINA Light Visionary Model: Trailer

Geometry and functions In 'N' Adaptions) concept revealed.

BMW have released sensational pictures of their new concept car, Gina, which is made out of cloth.

As fabric roofs for convertibles fall out of favour, BMW has discovered what to do with all that left over material; cover the rest of the car in it.

The GINA Light Visionary Model is a two seat roadster with a textile cover that resists water and extremes of temperature stretched across a moveable metal framework for an almost seamless outer body.

BMW Gina Concept
Dressing a lightweight aluminium spaceframe chassis are just four body sections. The largest stretches from the front of the car and forms the bonnet, front wings and doors. Side panels stretch from behind the front wheels and run to the rear of the car where a fourth part forms the rear deck.

The car's real sci-fi trick however is its ability to morph; changing shape like the liquid metal robot in Terminator 2 depending on what is required of it. Metal wires pin the hi-tech fabric to the body panels and electro-hydraulics attached to them can stretch it in different directions.

At the front of the car the traditional BMW twin headlights remain hidden until required, at which point the fabric is peeled open like a pair of eyelids. Rear lights are invisible under the fabric until lit. The familiar kidney grille can be altered to increase airflow, the side panels stretching apart and at the same time creating sharp creases along the front wings.

BMW has also done away with the traditional bonnet opening, instead replacing it with a horizontal split in the fabric that runs along the mid-line of the front panel and gapes open like a surgical incision.

The doors open outwards and upwards, the fabric along the leading edge wrinkling to accommodate the movement and then smoothing out once the doors are closed to cover the front panel gap. At speed the rear deck of the car can 'grow' stretching upwards beneath the fabric to increase downforce.

The interior also morphs, the seat and instruments motoring into position once the driver is in place. Although the technology is clearly not intended for production, fabric bodies could point the way to low-cost, low-energy manufacturing techniques while the shape presages the next generation Z4 roadster. Strangely, what it lacks is a roof.

Just when you thought that was it for L4D...here comes L4D2!

Sequel to Best-Selling Co-op Thriller Coming This Holiday
(set for release 17th Nov 2009!)
(Taken From Steam News )

June 1, 2009 - Valve, creators of best-selling game franchises (such as Half-Life and Counter-Strike) and leading technologies (such as Steam and Source), today announced Left 4 Dead 2 (L4D2), the sequel to the best-selling and critically-acclaimed co-operative multiplayer thriller.

Coming exclusively to Xbox 360 and PC, L4D2 promises to set a new benchmark for co-operative action games and become one of 2009's marquee titles.

"A large part of how Left 4 Dead became 2008's top-selling new IP on Xbox 360 and the PC was the custom-tailored gameplay made possible by the AI Director," said Gabe Newell, president and co-founder of Valve. "With the knowledge gained from creating the original, new technology, and a passionate team, L4D2 will set a new benchmark for cooperative action games."

Set for release on November 17, the title adds melee combat to enable deeper co-operative gameplay, with items such as a chainsaw, frying pan, axe, baseball bat, and more.

Introducing the AI Director 2.0, L4D's dynamic gameplay is taken to the next level by giving the Director the ability to procedurally change weather effects, world objects, and pathways in addition to tailoring the enemy population, effects, and sounds to match the players' performance. The result is a unique game session custom fitted to provide a satisfying and uniquely challenging experience each time the game is played.

Featuring new Survivors, boss zombies, weapons, and items, Left 4 Dead 2 offers a much larger game than the original with more co-operative campaigns, more Versus campaigns, and maps for Survival mode available at launch.

Supported by a $10+ million marketing campaign, Left 4 Dead has sold over 2.5 million retail copies since it was released in November of 2008. Left 4 Dead 2 is targeted for release on Xbox 360 and the PC on November 17, 2009, and will be launched worldwide with a multi-million dollar marketing campaign across TV, Outdoor, and Online.

"Left 4 Dead was backed by our most aggressive advertising campaign to date, and resulted in a top 5 showing on two platforms during holiday 2008," said Doug Lombardi, VP of marketing at Valve. "Left 4 Dead 2 is a larger game and will be supported with even more consumer and retail advertising programs than the original."

Left 4 Dead 2 will be featured as the cover story on PC Gamer and Official Xbox Magazines this month.

Blogger's note: I promise to be good this year if Santa will send me L4D2 for Christmas! =D
