Chicken a la carte – it’s going to leave a bad taste in your conscience

I can’t recall anything in recent memory I’ve seen that have affected me so profoundly.

A word of caution, to some, this might be a bit too hard to swallow.

I can’t believe it at first but I don’t think a hoax video would make it into a film festival?

How can we make a difference? This could be a start.

Point is, it starts from the heart. Ikhlas.


Here’s Johnny!

As I get back into blogging, an old friend and ex-colleague on mine begins his journey into blogging.

Have a look at his blog HERE – interesting perspective.

Looking at John’s first posts, I can’t help but to look back at my first blog post.

Welcome to the blogosphere Johnny!

OMG! How did this happen?

From everyone’s favourite blog in the world, another ROFLOL moment.
How did that get in there?!

FAIL Blog, you’ve done it again!

Hmm…should I bring back my Weekly Web Faves?


Super Bowl: Big Money, Big Ads

Check out the AdBlitz channel HERE

Ad spots during Super Bowl could very well be amongst the most expensive in the world. Up to USD100,000/second!

Let’s do some math, the Transformer 2: Revenge of the Fallen teaser trailer that aired during Superbowl was 30sec long. Multiply that with the going rate (USD100,000/second) and you come to a whopping USD3mil for one 30sec spot!

In a world where there’s no Don LaFontaine…

I’ve always wondered who was the guy that did all the voice overs for (probably) all the movie trailers I’ve seen in my life.

Well I guess I don’t have to wonder anymore because the guy is Don LaFontaine and unfortunately he has just passed away.

Don made popular the phrase “In a world where…” and when asked what was the strategy behind that famous line he explained:

“We have to very rapidly establish the world we are transporting them to,” he said of his viewers. “That’s very easily done by saying, `In a world where … violence rules.’ `In a world where … men are slaves and women are the conquerors.’ You very rapidly set the scene.”

Don didn’t care if people didn’t know his name or didn’t recognise his face, what’s important was that everyone knew his voice.

Don was professionally a sound engineer and got his big break in the 1960s when an announcer didn’t turn up for a session. MGM liked his performance and the rest – as they say – is history.
