I Remain - Prince Of Persia Theme Song-

Added it to my playlist. Sung by Alanis Morissete. Enjoy! =D

How crass you stand before me
With no blood to fuel your fame
How dare you wield such flittency
Without requisite shame
Your very existence becomes my sacred missions bane
You bow to kiss my hand and I ignore ignited flame

I moved to meet you
Untouched I do remain

To some it seems foreign
Why I would steely forge ahead
This land entrusted to me knows not of hallowed secrets
I'll keep it to myself
My own advicement in my head
Your charm can not distract me
From the path Im born to tread

How I'm thrilled to know you
Affected, I remained
How I've learned to like you
Undeterred I do remain

Less daunting as team
You unlikely king by my side
And me, so much better for trusting you
My hand over your heart
While you keep hindrances at bay
Colour me surprised by how our union saves the day

How Ive grown to need you
As my soul I just faiths
How I love to know you
And how I remain
I remain
I remain
I remain
I remain
I remain

This song really does says it all through Princess Tamina's point of view eh... =D

Prince Of Persia The Sands Of Time preview

*Screams in delight!!!

This is what I call an action-packed movie! Fighting scenes, acrobatic stunt moves, romance, humour, fresh new different plot... Feel free to read. DO NOT PROCEED AS I WILL REVEAL THE SPOILERS!!!

The story started off with the protagonist, Dastan a street urchin fending off the King's army when some controversy is stirred. Amazed by Dastan' courage, the King took Dastan back to his palace and gave him a family. Thus came to the reknowned Prince Dastan, the Lion of Persia.

In the present, the Persian army invaded the holy city of Alamut, which was suspected to be making and supplying weapons to Persia's enemy. Dastan accidentaly stumbled upon the Dagger of time, which can be used as a time travelling device.

The King came to Alamut to celebrate the victory. Prince Tus, Dastan's royal brother gave Dastan a robe to be presented to their father. Little that he know that the robe was poisoned. The King died when he put on the robe, which led to the accusation of Dastan for the killing of the King.

With the help of Princess Tamina, Alamut's princess, Dastan fled away. Then he slowly came to know about the power of the dagger. The plot then turns funny when both Dastan and Tamina started back stabbing each other to hold control of the dagger. But then slowly Dastan started to know about the truth of the dagger and vowed to help the Princess to give back the dagger to the Gods. Legend said that once upon a time the human race was so corrupted that it enraged the Gods. To punish human, a large sandstorm was whipped up to wipe out human civilization, only for one girl to stop the wrath of the Gods. Thus the sand storm was kept in a glass hidden some where beneath Alamut, and this is also the very sand to activate the time- travelling dagger.

Ah.. Princess Tamina.. <3>
The actual killer of the king was his own brother, Nizam. Nizam once saved his brother's life during a hunting trip and he intends to use the dagger to go back to the time he saved his brother, this time letting him die so that he can be king himself. After succeeding in stealing the dagger and finding the glass of magical sands he then stabs it to turn back time. Dastan managed to stop the time turning event which resulted him transported back to the time Persia breached Alamut. Now knowing that his evil uncle's scheme, he exposed his uncle's treachery, which in the end saved his father and his kingdom...

Definitely 5 *. Great soundtracks and stunt moves. Everything in a one and a half an hour movie. WATCH IT!!!

This is the original Wavin' Flag, not the FIFA celebration mix. Enjoy! ^^ Search for the celebration mix lyrics here

when i get older i will be

stronger than rome
but violent prone
poor people zone
but its my home
all i have known
where i got grown
streets we would roam

out of the darkness
i came the farthest
among the hardest survival
learn form these streets
it can be bleak
accept no defeet
surrender retreat
(so we struggling)
fighting to eat
(and we wondering)
when we will be free
so we patiently wait
for that faithful day
its not far away
but for now we say

when i get older i will be
stronger they'll call me freedom just
like a waving flag
and then it goes back (3x)

ahhho ahhho ahhho

so many wars
settling scores
bring us promises
leaving us poor
i heard them say
love is the way
love is the answer
thats what they say

but look how they treat us
make us believers
we fight there battes
then they deceive us
try to control us
they couldn't hold us

cause we just move forward
like buffalo soldiers
(but we strugglin)
fighting to eat
(and we wonderingg)
when we will be free
so we patiently wait
for that faithfully day
its not far away
but for now we say

when i get older i will be
stronger they'll call me freedom just
like a waving flag
and then it goes back (3x)

and then it goes when i get older i will be
stronger they'll call me freedom just

Knowledge and Wisdom

What is Knowledge? What is Wisdom?

Knowledge is gained from books and other media
Wisdom is gained by self-actualization

One teaches you right and wrong
One makes you realize that the world is more than just right and wrong

One you have to read through or gain it through hardwork
One you can gained by just closing your eyes and realize it

Knowledge leads a man to the pinnacle, the top
Wisdom make sure a man does not stray from the righteous

Knowledge makes a man see the world
Wisdom makes the whole world see a man

Knowledge helps you pass your exams
Wisdom helps you survive and live your years in this world

A knowledgeable man may not have wisdom
But a man with wisdom will have suffice knowledge

Knowledge makes you a specialist
Wisdom makes you a leader and ruler

The majority of the richest men in this world aren't knowledgeable; they either dropped out or stopped schooling(example Bill Gates, Steve Jobs) . In the end, they end up becoming tycoons with multi-billion property and company with knowledgeable individuals helping them out.

So are you a smart, or a self-realisation person? =D

Morning Sun - Robbie Williams

New song by Robbie Williams. Added it to my playlist. Enjoy ^^

How do you rate the morning sun
After a long and sleepless night
How many stars would you give to the moon?
Do you see those stars from where you are?
Shine on the lost and lonely years
The ones who cant get over it

You always wanted more than life
But now you dont have the appetite
In a message to the troubadour
The world don't love you anymore
Tell me how do you rate the morning sun?

Stuck inside the rainbow years
You could happen to be
Cause I've been close to where you are
I drove to places you have seen
It all seems so familiar
Like they've been sent to kill'ya

It doesn't take an astronaut
To float in a space is just a thought
The morning brings a mystery
The evening makes it history
Tell me how do you rate the morning sun?

And the village drunk
He sadly passed away,
It was a shame I never knew his name
I wonder if he sat there every morning
Watched the sun rise

How do you rate the morning sun
It's just to heavy for me
And all I wanted was the world
If you were the star that lit the sun
Don't go wasting your time
Cause there is no finish line
And you don't see anything,
Not even love not anything,
The night can take the man from you
A sense of wonder overdue
The morning brings a mystery
The evening makes it history
Who am I to rate the morning sun?

Robin Hood

Argh! One of my anticipated films of the year. I grew up idolising Robin Hood. And it turned out, shall I say a little dissappointing?

Russell Crowe ( Yeap. He's the Maximus in Gladiator XD) portrays the skillful archer and swordsman who robs the rich and gives it to the poor. It seems that this movie is actually about how Robin Longstride ( Robin Hood is his nickname) got exiled from England.

The movie started off with King Richard The Lionheart and his army attacking a French castle, in which he got killed during the siege. Robin was the archer in the army then. Upon the king's death, he and his friends, which later are known as the "merry men" left the army after leaving England for 10 years of war. Little that they know they met upon Sir Loxley and a group of the King's loyal knights who were in charge of bringing back the king's crown back to England. Sir Loxley and the knights were ambushed by Godfrey, an English traitor who has been supplying valuable information to King Phillipe of France who yearns to conquer England.

Robin and his Merry Man

Sir Loxley was killed in the ambush, and Robin promised him that he would help deliver the crown back to England and Sir Loxley's sword back to his father, Walter Loxley.

Then comes the boring part. Robin stays at Nottingham, which is where Sir Loxley reside, taking his place as Walter Loxley's lost son and trying to learn his history. It is this part where Robin starts to fall for Sir Loxley's wife, Lady Marion played by Cate Blanchett.

Ahh... Lady Marion, one of the few reasons it's worth watching. =D

"Ask me nicely" XD

Secretly, Godfrey has been using King John's name ( King Richard's brother and King after his brother's death) to stir up the anger of the Northern Barons. ( Barons are some sort of head of villagers) to induce war upon King John from the North. And France will attack England from the south by crossing the English Channel.

But Robin learns in time of his father who was one of those who created the Magna Carta( to proclaim certain rights (pertaining to freeman), respect certain legal procedures , and accept that his will could be bound by law). He arrived just in time to stop the confrontation of King John and the Barons and they fought together as one against the French at the shores. That of course ended in defeat for the French.

After the war, King John reneges one his words to sign the Magna Carta and proclaimed Robin Hood an outlaw and hunted man. Thus came to the Robin Hood we know, the one man who robs the rich and gives the poor, who resided in Sheerwood Forest with his merry men.

The trailer wow-ed me as the battle scenes were much like the Lord Of The Rings, where riders galloped through the plains to war. But oh my, it could have been better...

3 stars out of five. Lack of humour and fighting scenes are not elaborated enough. Partly because no one on one fight between the hero and villian. Soundtracks were just normal...

P.S. I don't know whether this version of Robin Hood is true or not. What I read and saw before was some how different though...

Why Did I Named This Blog Jpthedarkknight

15th May 2009 was the first day it started, the day I made my vow, that I would stand strong and face life bravely. It is the day that I promised myself never to let you ruin my life. I know that holding on will result me in a prolonged pain. So it is that day we finally lost touch and contact.

During these one year, there are days where I cursed the way you treated me, the things you did. But that of course caused me greater pain. I even disregard you as a friend any more.

That was the old me. As I live along, hatred itself seems to vanish by itself. Maybe I'm the kind with good temper and easily forgiving, I'm not sure of that myself either. It is this year, I learned and grew a lot. Not by means of growing physically, but the most important aspects, as in thinking, thoughts and mentality.

From what I see now, we were in love. A puppy love. A strong yet special puppy love. We did nothing like lovers do, yet we did do things that lovers sometimes do not do. You were the far-sighted one. Maybe you'd realised earlier than me that keeping each other the way we want would be difficult and maybe our personalities don't really match.

You chose a cruel way to end this. But deep inside to do such a thing is never easy...

Today is the day of that new beginning. The day the dark knight left Gotham City and retired from his super hero status. The day the dark knight resigned from being the dark angel that guards over Gotham City. The day I finally stop thinking of, YOU...

I ain't no Dark Knight any more =D

Iron Man 2

Iron Man finally got his sidekick XD

Robert Downey Jr. is back as the playboy super hero Iron Man. And I tell you, you really gotta watch this one!!! It rocks!!

Okay, some of you may have forget what had happened in the first part of the movie. Tony Stark a.k.a. Iron Man ( his name in the story) got kidnapped on a trip in Afghanistan. The terrorist who kidnapped him placed an electromagnet thingy into his chest, which in the end forces him to use an arc reactor(yes, the thing he inserts in his chest and glows in the dark). So now in the second part of the movie, as in this movie, the arc reactor is powered by an element called paladium, which side effects toxify Tony's blood.

Iron man is viewed as some as a national sercurity threat and the US government wanted Stark to hand over the suits. And they are teaming up with Stark's rival company Justin Hammer to produce an army of Iron man. But in the end Stark made Senator Stern look like a fool at the conference and insisting that there will be no others with the technology to build the iron man suit.

Little that he knows that the son of a Russian Physicist, who is also former colleague of his father has blue prints to the arc reator as well. He built himself a suit of iron and is the primary antagonist of this film, Whiplash. Then you know what happened. The bad guy went to find the good guy XD.
Whiplash is going to kick someone's ass...

(I won't go on narrating on the fighting scenes as you have to watch it yourselves for the thrill =D)

Whiplash loses to Stark and was placed in jail. But Justin Hammer freed him in order to gain Whiplash team work in producing the Iron Man suit to oust Startk Enterprise. Little that Justin knew that Whiplash was double-crossing him, by taking full advantage of the resources.

As the paladium continues to poison Stark's blood, he searches for a substitute for it. Little that he knows that his father already hidden everything he wants to tell his son in original diorama of the 1974 Stark Expo.

To synthesize the new element, Stark builds an accelerator that channels protons to another element. And pretty much drama occurs here and there until the final fight between Whiplash and Stark happens again. But the fight did not lasted very long though...

The story ends with Stark kissing his personal assistant Pepper Potts on the roof.

The end

(Actually I find it quite hard to write this movie critic. Maybe the scene shifts too fast, I don't know. And I left out Scarlett Johansson and Don Cheadle)

Deserves 5/5 star, especially for a super hero movie. Great soundtracks, cool fighting scenes. Awesome technology( don't know whether it exists today or not) and definitely one of the best movie of ther year, I predict ;=)

I don't know what title to give to this entry. God has been good to me. He gave me the strength and a body of a soldier. If I were to be born back in time, I would have been in a war, as a soldier. Maybe fighting for Sparta or what so ever. But then again, He also granted me patience. Yes, a perfect combination. That's why I am proud to say I had never been involved in a bust up or fight. Nope. Not even a teeny-weeny one. Or any serious confrontation.

But then again, God made me as a human. No matter how big or how great my patience is, I have my limits. When patience runs out, it is good to say that my conscience and rationality is still there. No problem solving using brute strength or what so ever.

The thing is, having to be put through the same annoying and taxing problem again and again is really beginning to get on my nerves. In the end, I do have my self esteem. I cannot always back away when troubles come finding. In the end, I'm just a mere coward if things keep going on like this, without showing who I am and fighting against it

I won't wish for any endings which will harm the other and benefit me. No matter how piss off I am, my wisdom guides me to make the best decision.

I wish that 'it' will go away. Maybe let me face it once or twice in a year. And I definitely won't regret this wish...
