Robotic Dog , Animal-like Robots , Smart Evolving Robots , Realistic Japanese Robot

This is a damn cool dog-like skeleton robot... watch the video .. the part where it's being kicked at and also walking on slippery surfaces ... it can balance it self without any problem... hell.. it can even jump... like an animal.. the only problem with it is the noise that it produces..

This next one is a four legged spider-like climbing robot.. it's slow.. but interesting..

Robots inspired by animal movements... from fish to lizard to something that uses genetic algorithms to change shape - SUPER COOL!!!

A group of little robots that can self-assemble to create a robot to suit certain terrain that they encounter.. - this is so scary ... it's like they have a mind of their own..

Lastly... a robotic Japanese woman.. with realistic facial expression...movements are abit odd...

Boyzone is back.. with abs

Hey girls!!! and guys (who're into them...) .... BOYZONE is back with six-packsssss... not beers.. but rock-hard solid abs... ahaha.. i'm not writing about them because i'm into them... but i'm just surprised that this boyband thing can make a comeback... and looking at how they are now , it's just plain wrong and lame... First of , the full Monty photoshoot.. hmmmm... their body looks good.. but it's just a little bit too gay.. even for 12-15 year olds...

And at their live shows , it's like having a promo for celebrity fitness gym.. ahaha.. it's lame... you can see treadmills on the stage... and the members of boyzone will be donning their gym shorts and pants.. and of course shirtless to show their nicely toned abs... can they really sing while jogging or running on those machines??? or maybe they got tired of dancing.. or they just want to be original with their live shows... or they really got their influence from OK Go's Here It GOES...

It's interesting isn't how they managed to recycle the same shitty pop songs with a brand new 'packaging'...

*they are not that bad.. i kindda liked a few of their songs.. it's how they're trying to market themselve that i'm not interested in..

Soilwork !!! Love them... hated the wait...

Here's my 2cents for Soilwork's Live in KL yesterday.. besides getting bruises all over my body and a head-butting experience THANKS TO NIEUKEY , ... it was awesomeeeeeeee...

Let's start from the beginning ,I picked Dinesh , Mursi and Wan Fong up and we reached around 5.45 i think and got in to the open parking somewhere near Ruums.. and it's only rm 3.. very affordable.. as we were walking out of the car park , the entrance fee was hiked up to RM6.. ahaha.. another 'con artist' is the chinese lady at the convenience store below Ruums.. my friends who bought a bottle of mineral water before me , they got it for RM2.. 15 minutes later when i went in to get one , it's RM3.. bloody hell.. kena con by same race somemore.. haigh...

About half an hour of pointless-cock-talking among ourselves , Soilwork came in a minivan.. as they came down , first thing that i notices is how bloody big-sized they were.. they went straight to the top without saying anything much.. cool buggers..

Anyway , we were growing impatient over the 2 hours of waiting for the gig to start.. damnit.. tickets said 5 oclock.. 8 pm also havent start.. and there will be like 6 other local bands that'll be opening for Soilwork..

At last they let us in.. we grabbed a nice spot somewhere near the bar.. nice view even if we don't feel like moshing..

The first band , Damokis played.. grindcore?? it was alright.. the overall sound sucks.. can't hear much of the kick drum.. second band , Love Me Butch.. superb band.. sounds good.. one of my favourite band locally.. Next up , Cassandra.. great hardcore/metal/deathcore stuff.. scary vocalist.. it's like looking at Greg Puciato of Dillinger Escape Plan's singing.. what i mean is the Cass is buffed.. right after that Inkarnation rocked everyone that night.. nicelydone melodic death stuff.. and the crowd's favourite Koffin Kanser , almost kicked everyone's asses if not for their stale-style of Soulfly-ish music.. Justin was once again invited to play percussions.. the only non-dreadlocked member is Bakry(drummer) .. nice and tight set.. and Sil Khannaz started their set with the vocalist squelling 'Let's die motherfuckerrrrrrrrssss' .. or something like that... abit too old school for my taste.. but their guitarists are good.. and nice caparison guitar...ok.. that's all for the opening bands.. oh yeah.. the opening bands took like 2 hours to finish up..

before i forget , both the MCs for that night sucks big time.. i think i head someone shouted to the mic 'you fucking suck you fucking hobbit!!' ... and wild chants of 'You Suck!!' from the crowd.. the girl MC totally sucks.. she should stop coming up to the stage.. that dude is ok laaaaaa.. nice vocal growls.. at least he managed to make the crowd hyped up a little bit before Soilwork starts..

Then Soilwork played.. superb sound... superb vocals.. nice moshpit.. i can't remmeber how many songs they played.. very very supportive fans as well.. especially when i think almost everyone sang to all their chorus-sing-alongs ... very tight and professional set.. when they started, i decided to join in the 500-odd crowd in the middle.. it's always refreshing to mix around with all the sweaty , long haired , goateed people in the mosh pit.. this is when somehow Nieukey head-butted me straight on my forehead.. ahaha.. damnit.. i thought i had a concussion right there and then... i actually went back to the table after ten minutes of strange headache.. ahaha.. i''m too old for these shit i guess.. damnit..

I dunno what else to write.. emm.. i'll upload some of the pictures taken in one of my next post.. stay tuned..

The Wind of Change , The Ripple of Chaos

As most of you already know.. Former Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad who quit the party on Monday had asked other members to do the same if they have no confidence in Abdullah’s leadership. As of 21st May 2008 @ 4.11pm , a quick check on the star website , here's what i got..

"A total of 156 members from the Sri Tanjung branch in the Pokok Sena Umno division quit the party Tuesday night.Sri Tanjung branch chairman Baharuddin Mahmood, who led the group, said they would only rejoin Umno after party president Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi steps down."

"Some 300-odd members of Umno Jalan Badlishah branch in Merbok were among the first to quit en masse followed by about 2,000 members in Gombak.It is learnt about 2,000 more from five branches in Pokok Sena namely Langgar, Limbong, Tasak, Taman Teratai and Kampung Bersatu would be submitting their resignation letters in stages within the next few days."

"Former Kedah Umno treasurer Datuk Mokhzani Mahathir and former Kota Setar MP Dr Abdul Hadi Derani are among Umno members who have quit the party."

- All they wanted to have a change in leadership.. that's all.. don't you guys think that our current PM should do something about all these drama soon... it shakes my confidence in the current government.. i'm guessing that the whole world will have a different view of Malaysia now.. it's so different from Tun Dr Mahathir's time... but then again.. as my colleague said , yeah we were ok during Tun's time.. but we were so content with the stability that were blinded by ignorance. We don't know what was happening behind the scenes.. at least now we have the oppositions to create the balance in power... so next few months should be quite interesting..

Here's what other people have to say on Tun's resignation...

Parti Keadilan Rakyat de facto leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim said that - "The resignation of former prime minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamed indicates a worsening of the crisis in Umno and Barisan Nasional"

Wanita Umno chief Datuk Seri Rafidah Aziz said that Tun's action is disloyal to UMNO.

Gerakan acting president Tan Sri Dr Koh Tsu Koon said Umno had the strength and experience to cope with the repercussions of former premier Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad’s sudden resignation from Umno. - ahahhaha... hmmm.. yeah right....

What's the whole point of this?? i'm guessing that those telco companies started this chain-sms thinggy.. but then again , why Malaysians believe in all this BS..

What ' Metro TV'????? a quick search on google shows that Metro TV is an Indonesian television network... hmmmmmmm............... oh yeah , my gf's forwarded sms didn't have Metro TV.. it was just TV.. i guess not everyone is as dumbass as those who forwarded the Metro TV version... ahaha..

anyhow , i think i'll try call a few of my friends and see if they really do off their phones.. if they really do... ahahahhaha.. i'm gonna laugh at their faces...

If the whole thing is true , I'll be damned... -.-

Slipknot "our new album will rip your face off'

Slipknot are currently on a two week "studio lock-down" putting the
finishing touches to their as-yet-untitled fourth album which is set
for release in September.

According to frontman Corey Taylor, the follow-up to 2004's Vol. 3: (The Subliminal Verses) is "going to rip your face off."

"I don't think the world will be ready for this album," Taylor told
US mag Billboard. "It's a cross between Vol. 3 and [2001's] Iowa. It
has so much power in it and yet there are so many great spots for
melody. It's a controlled chaos that hits you right out of the gate."

When asked about the album's lyrical content, Taylor said:

"Instead of bitching about what went wrong in my life, I'm bitching about what's wrong in life, PERIOD."

Taylor also says the album will have more melodic vocals:

"I got to the point where I was tired of pretending that I couldn't
sing every time I made a Slipknot album," he said. "So this time I'm
going all out."

But melodic vocals doesn't mean that this record will be any less
menacing. Taylor refused to go into specifics, but he did say that the
record is "very dark and will fit in everything image-wise that we're
making with this album."
