The Ringtone

ᄀ

I hope this old train breaks down Then I could take a walk around

And see what there is to see And time is just a melody

괜

All the people in the street walk as fast as their feet can take them

괜ᄎ

I just roll through town And though my windows got a view

괜찬

the frame I’m looking through seems to have no concern for now

. So for now

.

.

I. need. this old train to breakdown

Oh,

please

just

괜찬아

.let me.

..please breakdown..

괜찮아

Raining Cats And Dogs

without comments

There is no sunny Bali these days. The sky keeps inviting the rain and the wind comes, too.

Tonight coming home late, the head inside my raincoat was remembering. Was it like this last year?

It seems like the rainy days stay longer and in the morning, the sleepy soul gets harder to drag to the bathroom.

Ha. It feels good to call out the past and catch the differences. At least some things are out of the circle.

My Favourite Sound

with 2 comments

Nothingness.

Because I think it would be relaxing. But the thing is that it is also a sound I have never heard before but I hope to hear. Someday. But just not so soon. Because I think it’s quite scary, too.

Yeah, I’m thinking about death.

Maybe I should revise my answer. My favourite sound is almost nothingness, just give a bit of place to tickle my ears.

Hm.


This guy said that passion is not enough. So with the big help from this site, I promise my self to write more in 2011.

Hm.

Review: Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?

without comments

Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? by Philip K. Dick
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

How did I know this book?

From blog-walking. The blog author was reading it for the n-th time and it is one of his favourite. And I thought the title is a thought-provoking for a moment. This book had been adapted to a famous 80’s movie, Blade Runner.

Any pre-reading thought?

Since the book is from 60s and the setting is around 1990, I was wondering what could be the thought/prediction from someone from the past? Even though it is only a fiction but still it came from one’s imagination. I read that the author died in 1982 so he didn’t get a chance to see if any of his came true. But I bet he had a lot of fun trying to create the future.

What kind of mood this book is setting me while reading it?

Gloomy and suffocated. I don’t want to live in the earth described in it. But from the viewer’s seat, it was nice, I just waited for the next action to come.

And after reading?

This book is 102 pages, I have the Oxford University Press version. It’s a short novel, yet it’s packed. There are many characters and I feel like every few pages I was turning could result in some questions. I think this book is a good resource for discussion in a literature class or book club.

Anything else to add?

Yes, I regret that I stopped in the middle of the story and then continue it after a while. I keep thinking it cuts me a big portion of impression. Hm. Maybe next time.
