Architecture Inspired by Tetris

Years ago, Indonesian market was flooded with palm-sized Tetris. For a geeky kid like me, it was almost like owning those fancy scientific calculator but instead of doing trigonometry, you get to play one of the simplest yet addictive game of all time.
Apparently, I'm not the only one fascinated with Tetris...

How to Say "Unbreak My Heart,Undo This Hurt" If You're Not Toni Braxton

What is it?

It's an "Undo relationship wrongs apology card". According to the source, it's finely printed with hand-mixed ink on 100% cotton extra soft paper and priced at $3.75.

Pretty neat, isn't it? Still showing off your geekiness while apologizing.

For me it can only works when and if the receiver can appreciate your sense of humour, no matter how geeky it is. If not, well, it's probably not a good idea. Sending this card is probably like saying, 'Here honey, to apologize for spending more time with my [insert addictive gadget/geeky pastime here] than with you, I bought you a computer-based humour apology card to make up for it! Great huh!...h-hello?'

Or imagine if she is a hardcore Mac fanatic! This card can only make her angrier.

Remember, if things don't work out better after this, you're probably
better to ctrl-alt-del so she doesn't retain any memory. make sure you delete the temp files too so it doesn't get thrown in your face next time you open her up.

And oh,if that happens,
the purchase of the card cannot be ctrl+z'd.

Japan's Fun Trains

As someone who holds a great fascination with built environment design (that's architecture, urban design, and interior design), I always appreciate town planners and city administrators who take great concerns regarding public transportation. Personally I think the better a city's public transportation is, the better the life of the citizens are. And that, ladies and gents, is the sign of a modern, ecologically sound, and friendly city.

How to decorate small room

Decorating a small room? While these spaces can be a bit challenging, here are a few ideas that you might find beneficial in helping your small space take on a much larger look!

Frank Gehry, before becoming THE Starchitect

Frank Gehry is one of those architects whose works can boldly divide people into two camps : those who adore him so much and those who loathe him with such a fiery passion.
In this video below, TED presents a video of Frank Gehry's speech recorded in 1990, when Gehry was "not-yet-legendary architect".

A little recommendation for your crib... if you're Norman Bates

In lights of recent event in Indonesian pop culture scene,in which an actual horror movie (it's quite scary and not some crappy excuse for a softcore porn movie)made it at the box office without any cheap sensasionalism, I decided to post something a little gory (the said movie is a slasher flick, FYI).

Incredible Interior I : The 3 C's of Furniture Arranging

New label, ladies and gentlemen! As the name suggests, Incredible Interior is my attempt to share what little knowledge I have regarding interior design; tips and tricks and everything. Of course, the posts under this label will also be littered with geeky, comic book stuff since that is the main theme of this blog.

The First Comic Book Movie for the year 2010 is...The Losers!

For those of you not familiar with The Losers, it's actually a classic DC Comics World War II title reimagined by writer Andy Diggle (who's now in charge of Marvel's Daredevil) and for the most part illustrated by artist Jock.


In this current reimagination, The Losers are set today's grey political climate, including the so-called War on Terror as the background. Now, instead of World War II operatives, they are a Special Forces team seconded to the Central Intelligence Agency. In Afghanistan, the Losers were betrayed by their handler, Max, and left for dead following the conclusion of their operation. Eager for revenge and the opportunity to remove their names from a secret CIA death list, the Losers regroup and conduct covert operations against the CIA and its interests, uncovering startling operations spearheaded by the enigmatic Max, whose influence within the CIA and U.S. government is unparalleled.

The Losers ran for 32 issues from 2003-2006 and I've been on a trade-reading marathon these last few weeks and it's been awesome. If you like conspiracy-laden story with blow-things-up action that'll ashame Michael Bay but still with great characterization, smart dialogue, and unpredictable plot, this book is for you.

Unsurprisingly, this book was nominated as for the Eisner Award as "Best New Series" in 2004. For those of you not familiar, the Eisner is the comic book equivalent of the Academy Award.

Seeing from this trailer, it seems that this movie has a good cast, quite faithful to the original source, and it seems funny. It looks awesome, and i've been kind of crushing on Zoe Saldana-the new queen of geek flicks- since Pirates of the Caribbean (you know, the hot black pirate chick). The scene with her firing the bazooka sold me.

However, the comparison with the A-Team and the Expendables are going to be unavoidable. Personally, I think this is another one of these coincidences where there are movies with the same theme out around the same time.
