I'm Attacking The Darkness!!! and Other Stories
a.k.a what happens when the guys decided to play Dungeons & Dragons. LMFAO!
Probably inspired by this line here…
"You like D&D, Audrey Hepburn, Fangoria, Harry Houdini and croquet. Can’t swim, can’t dance, don’t know karate. Face it. You’re never gonna make it."
Ray to Gerard in I’m Not Okay (I Promise)
Mikey Way as The Dungeon MasterFrank Iero as Teh N00bRay Toro as That One Guy Who Likes Cheetos and Mountain Dew
Gerard Way as The Elfand Bob Bryar as The Magical Watchdog/ A GIRL!!! (in the second video.) Poor Bob :P
Credits to insertwithere for the first video and girltiffany for the second one. Thanks a lot!Update:
We took Ikmal to the clinic tonight because both his palms are peeling. Tak tau macam mana boleh jadi macam tu, mengelupas dan merah2. Memula doktor tu ingatkan HFM, tapi Alhamdulillah, cuma allergic reaction je. Doktor tu kata mungkin tangan dia tak tahan dengan chemical yang ada dalam sabun atau whatever benda yang dia main. I swear, I was *this* close to saying ‘Hell Yeah Chemical!’ when I heard him said that. LOL!Hmm… sounds familiar…
Dunno about you guys, but at first listen, I think this song by Frank’s old band, Pencey Prep, sounds eerily like a B-side of My Chemical Romance’s Early Sunset Over Monroeville. Hehe, I can’t stop giggling at the very youthful voice. (well, okay, I know he sounds much, much more aggressive in his new band, Leathermouth, but teehee *can’t control the fangirly giggle*, imho, Frank is better off as a rhythm guitarist for my favourite band. :)
Florida Plates (Pencey Prep)
And no, I won’t apologize for the overdose of Frank Anthony Iero. \(^o^)/
I think I just died and go to musical heaven.
Thank you sooo much for saving my hard-earned money!!!!
Now, dudes, before somebody noticed this site and shut it down or whatever :P
My fave frontman is at number 21 for The Phoenix’s 100 Unsexiest Men 2007.
The article is here, yo.

So, You Think You Can Write?
Calling all ladies!
There’s a new site in town called Notes From Venus, and they’re looking for more female bloggers/ writers to join in the fun. You can post about anything under the sun, and YES! There’s a contest too! Stand to win a free spa treatment if your post is published.
To quote from their website:
Notes From Venus is intended to be the voice of women in Asia, which means we would like to hear from everyone out there instead of just the opinion of several writers. The idea is to bring all stories related to women to the forefront and to give them importance and meaning in the form of a collective where others can come to find their place, share in the stories and draw from them thoughts to inspire, amaze or surprise.
For talented writers, and wannabe professional Bloggers, eager to express their creativity and ingenuity, Notes For Venus is an avenue to explore capabilities and push the limits of writing, and, to have your voice heard and thoughts and ideas read by countless women from within the region and beyond.
Notes For Venus will also act as a platform from which our writers can gain exposure and in the process establish an active writers’ network
Hope to see you there! And yes, I’ve linked the site at my sidebar too.
PS : Guys, don’t even think about writing as a woman. Trust me, THEY KNOW! If you’re caught, may you grow man-boobs like the ones on Meatloaf in Fight Club. :P
The day I was almost pau’ed
Seriously, aku kadang2 serba salah kalau ada orang (mostly lelaki la) tahan aku tengah jalan, asking for cash. Macam2 alasan aku dengar. Motor pancit la. Baru tiba dari kampung pastuh kena pau la. Petang tadi ada sorang mamat ni jumpa aku. Nampak gaya macam Indon. Nak seringgit katanya, buat tambang bas. Dia bagitau lagi, yang dia baru jek keluar dari penjara. (I was like O.O kejap. Ingat nak tanya soalan bodoh, kenal tak Michael Scofield, tapi aku batalkan niat murni aku tuh). I declined nicely, “takpelah” (macam la mamat tu nak jual barang kat aku, tapi yelah, kekadang dalam situasi macam tu, kita tatau nak cakap apa). Tongue tied. Takut pun ada. Tambahan pulak sekarang ni macam2 benda kau dengar dari mulut orang dan melalui email. Macam2 kes orang buat sebab nak cepat kaya, guna pukau la, bomoh la, guna internet la. Kau jadi paranoid
android. Memang niat di hati nak tolong, tapi what if suddenly aku kena pukau pastuh hilang semua duit, dan esoknya polis jumpa mayat aku kat tepi longkang kat Semenyih sana. Tak ke naya tu? Tensen, tensen…
For Nadia & Yatt:
Beb, this is the mag I was telling you about. Ada dalam 30++ pages of pure punk goodness, particularly in the year 1976. Ada artikel and banyak gambar yang phoar, pasal Sex Pistols, The Ramones (oi!), Siouxsie Sioux and the Banshees. Aaand, ada artikel menarik kalau kau nak tulis pasal Lacuna tuh. Kalau kau still belum ada lagi, dan nak pinjam, sms aku, kay!
Haha, aku terperasan satu ayat ni dalam artikel pasal The Arctic Monkeys (in this mag) –
Another MySpace success story is Chicago punk band My Chemical Romance, whose 2004 album, Three Cheers for Sweet Revenge, has sold more than a million copies.
CHICAGO?!?!?! Wtf? Bob Bryar must’ve been so proud… :P
PS: Yatt, CD okay tak? Maklum le, bootleg, hehe. Kalau prob, bagitau aku, nanti aku bagi a new one :). Thanks a lot for inviting me for lunch dan sempat ‘melawat kawasan’ lagi tu! Heh, korang le kawan blogger pertama aku yang berkunjung ke kubikel aku tu. Tahniah, tahniah… :P
Some of the goodies at my cubes now… Yatt kata aku ni 'jiwa remaja terperangkap dalam badan mak orang berusia 31 tahun'. Heh. Sukati kau le Yatt... :P
Ah, another MyChem pic spam before I finish… Hmm.. dunno about you but I think Frank Iero looks like Zacky Vengeance's (angelic) twin in this pic. Ah-sum!
Gaah! So many similarities! The inked sleeves, the lick! The same gaze. Italian guys are HAWT. :PToodles!

Happy 30th Birthday, Gerard Arthur Way !
For what you did to me, And what I'll do to you, You get, what everyone else gets, You get a lifetime!
Do you remember that day when we met ? You told me this gets harder Well it did! Been holding on forever, Promise me that when I'm gone you'll kill my enemies, The damage you've inflicted temporary wounds I'm coming back from the dead and I'll take you home with me, I'm taking back the life you stole
We never got that far, This helps me to think all through the night; Bright lights that, won't kill me now, or tell me how; Just you and I, your starless eyes remain.
Hip Hip Hooray for me, you talk to me, but would you kill me in my sleep; Lay still like the dead; From the razor to the rosary; We could lose ourselves; And paint these walls in pitchfork red; I will avenge my ghost with every breath I take; I'm coming back from the dead and I'll take you home with me; I'm taking back the life you stole.
This hole that you put me in; Wasn't deep enough And I'm climbing out right now; You're running out of places to hide from me; When you go, Just know that I will remember you; If living was the hardest part; We'll then one day be together; And in the end we'll fall apart; Just as the leaves changing colors; And then I will be with you; I will be there one last time now; When you go; Just know that I will remember you...
I lost my fear of falling, I will be with you, I will be with you !
Song: It's Not A Fashion Statement, It's A Deathwish (from Three Cheers for Sweet Revenge)
Welcome to the club! And yeah, Gee, 30's is so NOT the new 20's. Keep rockin'! And stay sober :)
PS1: "Don't tease me about my hobby. I don't tease you about being an asshole" Mark (Garden State, 2004) which is co-incidentally, Noo Joisey!!!
PS2: And yeah, I DO remember my father's birthday on the 20th AND my niece's on the 17th. Pfft!
PP3: Happy birthday to other rockin' April babies (those in my fave bands only la) - Mike McCready of Pearl Jam (5th April), Brendon Urie of P!ATD (12th), Daniel Johns of Silverchair (22nd),Tyson Ritter of AAR (24th) and Patrick Stump of FOB (27th).

The Finale, The Hiatus and The Syok Sendiri
Agak terlewat but what the heck...PRISON BREAK Episodes 21 & 22 (Season Finale)
What more can I say?
So many RIP’s for Season 2 – Veronica, Gov. Tancredi, Abruzzi, Tweener, Haywire, Kellerman (my poor bff :( ), Bill Kim (hell yeah!), Sucre and Maricruz (mungkinkah terjadi ???), but at least C-Note dah berbahagia dengan keluarga tersayang. Prison Break should have stopped at Season 1, but then, us hardcore fans telah ditinggalkan tergantung pada cliffhanger di penghujung Season 1. :(...
Sara : I love you Michael.
Michael : (I was hoping he’d do a Han Solo and said “I know”, but damn script writers can only come up with a cheesy “I love you too”). Buek!
The wtf? ending
Honestly, I’m very disappointed with the finale. Seriously, aku tatau apa motif Michael Scofield kena hantar kat prison yang nampak macam HQ untuk mutants tu. Damn, sekali pandang macam seedy gay club dalam Irreversible lak! Macam tengok Lost, yo. Anyway, aku rasa, untuk Season 3, aku macam boleh agak apa akan terjadi…
1. Michael sebenarnya dalam koma sebab terperanjat beruk dengar dia tembak siling bank yang dia rompak tu (dalam Episod Pilot PB) dan semua yang berlaku sepanjang Season 1 dan Season 2 adalah mimpi semata2.
2. Or, Michael can team up with Mahone and try to find their way out of that SONA prison (yang mungkin lebih secured dan hi-tech daripada Fox River). And Bellick can be somebody’s prison bitch for once. (Better get a razor ready, honey).
HEROES Episodes 17 & 18 (before hiatus *shakes fist*)
I was like, whoa! With THAT many spectators, macam mana agaknya Enche’ Bennet nak protect rahsia Claire ye? Use a neuralizer eh? Tapi aku cukup kagum dengan bra-nya yang kalis radiasi…
Just another pic for you know who ;-)
Haha, Sylar, we have the same taste in fashion!!! (I mean, aku tau la dia tiru dressing Zane Taylor), tapi this is what I usually wear on my outings. Er, mom, can I have my grey sweatshirt back?
Gaah! I can never have enough of the brotherly love!
Mohinder, you’re in BIIIGGG trouble, macha! You should’ve known better that lumbar puncture without anesthetic hurts LIKE HELL!!! Uhm, don't ask Dr. House about this. He sucks at LP's.
Oh ya, teori Heroes aku tentang nama Sylar – derived drp Chinese phrase “Sei lor” or, “mati la mak!” sebab setiap orang yang terjumpa dia mesti akan kehilangan otak, hehe…
I can’t wait for the hiatus to be over!
Next in line, aku baru je pinjam nip/tuck Season 3 & 4 dari member aku.
Sigh, so much to watch, so little time…
SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE ? (Malaysia)
Yeah, malam tadi aku tengok Episod pertama siri ni. Pretty impressed with the contestants (especially budak kampung aku yang bawak motor 3 jam untuk hadiri audition ni, just like my brother yang buat benda yang sama hari tuh untuk audition Nescafe Kick-Start.). Tapi aku agak pissed sebab ada dua minah Melayu ni yang kena sensor sebab too HAWT, apparently (nak tiru PCD tapi tak jadi :P). And yes, nobody did the Napoleon Dynamite dance, thank God! Tapi aku macam dapat rasakan yang aku akan root for the contestants yang terrer dalam Indian classical dance tu (ada sorang lelaki dan sorang Chinese lady).

My Chemical Romance Update
I Think I’ve Just Broken My Squee GlandMikey Way
And more Mikey Way because he looked so damn hot without those glasses…
Frank Iero & Gerard Way
Bob Bryar“Years ago, we used to come out with chocolate for the fans, back when there was like, 50 of them. That was everybody who came to the show, though, we couldn’t do that now. Somebody would get hurt. We’re worried about their safety and ours at the same time, and we’re not perfect at it yet. If they’re out on the street and there are cars coming… it can get too crazy sometimes.”
Heh, we're talking around 5 million now Gerard. :-)All pictures and quotes are from My Chemical Romance Tour Blog at NME

Things like this can really, really put a smile on my face…
And you know what else put a smile on my face ? Yes!!!!
Reading a brand new Galaxie mag, fresh from the magazine stand.
Some of the things that make me O.O from the recent/ latest issues of Galaxie are…
1. Muse, Muse, and more Muse.
2. My Chem. Seriously, I don’t care if they’re printing the same pictures/ posters over and over again, coz they’re my fave band right now.
3. *keeping my fingers crossed for any contest with Linkin Park goodies*
4. The interview with my fave (fictional) plastic surgeons, Christian Troy and Sean McNamara AND the woman who shared their love.
5. The nearly half-naked pic of Pete Wentz during their Singapore concert. o.O.
6. Wentworth Miller holding a copy of Galaxie!!!! THE WENTWORTH MILLER!!! OMG! They should’ve sent me instead of that mag :P Hell, I’d pay for the air fare. :P I would even pay him to hold me like that :P:P:P
7. The poster of Daniel Radcliffe. In Equus O.O (I wasn’t expecting that. Honest!)
8. Dumbledore’s Army!!!! (This poster is totally going up on my cubicle!) Luna Lovegood looks so, er, good!
9. TVgasm! Kyle XY (I can see my youngest sister grinning from ear to ear by now), Heroes, Ugly Betty, ANTM, Supernatural, Prison Break, the CSI series; it’s like TV dot com, only better, because you can’t drool over them in the bathroom can you?
10. Adam Levine, for kicking Gerard Way’s ass by being voted as the Best Looking Frontman. I demand a recount! :P The same goes to Chad Michael Murray, who beats Went by a mere 5% by being TV’s Hunkiest Guy :P Cute, yes, but hunky? Nuh-uh.
11. Shia LaBeouf. I almost didn’t recognize him coz he looked so, uhm, grown up! Haha, the same expression I got after seeing Lucas Black in Tokyo Drift (I’ve always remembered him as Caleb, that little boy from American Gothic)
12. So many contests, so little time. :(
13. And yess!!!! There are lesser ringtone adverts now. I mean, the ads are still there, but not as irritating as the ringtones ads. Ugh.
Thank you again for all the good stuffs!
That really made my night.
Now will you excuse me, I want to sleep in peace. :)

Think Happy Thoughts...
What if I wanted to break
Laugh it all off in your face
What would you do?
What if I fell to the floor
Couldn't take all this anymore
What would you do, do, do?
Come break me down
Bury me, bury me
I am finished with you
What if I wanted to fight
Beg for the rest of my life ?
What would you do?
You say you wanted more
What are you waiting for?
I'm not running from you (from you)
Come break me down
Bury me, bury me
I am finished with you
Look in my eyes
You're killing me, killing me
All I wanted was you
I tried to be someone else
But nothing seemed to change
I know now, this is who I really am inside.
Finally found myself
Fighting for a chance.
I know now, this is who I really am.
30 Seconds To Mars

I got my period today.
I just don’t know how to feel anymore.
Give me my happy pills and pray that there’ll be a light at the end of the fucking tunnel. (T_T)
