A fantastical imagination about choices

The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus
(Infinity Features Entertainment, 117 minutes)
Directed by Terry Gilliam

Starring Christopher Plummer, Verne Troyer, Johnny Depp, Colin Farrell, Tom Waits, Jude Law, Heath Ledger, Lily Cole, Andrew Garfield. 
Written by Terry Gilliam,Charles McKeown

Director Terry Gilliam is known for creating astonishing and fantastical worlds. His rich imagination is shown again in The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus, produced in December 2007.
The tragic death of film star Heath Ledger during the filming of this movie forced Gilliam and co-writer Charles McKeown to make a few changes to the script, adding three saviors — well-known stars Johnny Depp, Colin Farrell and Jude Law.

The movie is set in present-day London. There is a Victorian-style traveling theater led by Dr. Parnassus (Christopher Plummer), which is on a horse-drawn caravan, driven by Percy (Verne Toyler).
The film opens with Anton (Andrew Garfield), the emcee, introducing the “Imaginarium” show. Curtains up, Parnassus appears on a moving seat in meditation, with a red mark on his forehead. Parnassus has the ability to inspire our imagination. 

His daughter, the beautiful 15-year-old Valentina (Lily Cole) wearing Victorian clothes, emerges from the “Imaginarium” mirror.
It is later revealed that Parnassus had a deal with Nick (Tom Waits). Parnassus had promised to hand over Valentina to Nick when she turned 16 or in this case of the movie, in three days. In return, Nick pledged to grant Parnassus immortality.

Back on screen, the theater show is disturbed by a drunken boy who comes up to the stage and lures Valentina. The boy follows her through the mirror and eventually gets punished.
The friends of the drunken-boy get mad because their friend has disappeared and create chaos until the police intervene and ask Parnassus to leave. The caravan stops at a bridge under which they find a hanging man from under it.

The stranger, Tony Liar (Heath Ledger), whom they rescue, is actually bad news for the company as he’s involved in a sinister conspiracy involving children. Parnassus uses him to draw crowds to the
“Imaginarium” and Tony has no trouble luring volunteers. 

Tony tells his new friends that he can’t remember his past life, but these lies cause him to be perpetually anxious. At this point in the filming, Ledger died and is replaced — in identical white suits and tidy beards — by the similarly attractive Johnny Depp, Jude Law and Colin Farrell. 

This film’s world premiere was at the 62nd Cannes Film Festival — but was not part of the competition and also appeared on screen at several international film festivals before it was officially released on Dec. 25, 2009. In some countries, however, the movie is being released this year. 

The film has also been nominated for an Academy Award, a BAFTA Film Award, a British Independent Film Award, a CDG Award and a Satellite Award. So far, it has won the Satellite Award for Best Costume Design.

Looklet be a virtual stylist



Have you ever not known what to wear in the morning? Do you have a dream to wear a well-known international fashion designer?
But hey, you can have them all! Here we go. Looklet.com makes it possible. Looklet is a site that has existed since 2009 and was developed along with the rise of cyber technology. 

It is a digital styling studio where you are allowed to mix and create a look from every garment. Pick real clothes from the virtual wardrobe, put them on a model you choose, select the background you want and save it to show other Looklet users.
It inspires you without  making you lose your own touch of personal savor in creating fashionable looks.

Looklet requires you to sign up before you can save a new look on your page. The registration process is not complicated - fill in the username you want, email, password and your country.
After you sign up, you can edit your personal information, and upload a profile picture and description of yourself. Then, you can begin adding friends. 

Challenge yourself with creativity to amaze other users on Looklet and let them send a “heart” to your page. Users can click on a “heart” button to show they love your look.
Users can only “heart” your page once. The more hearts you get, the more popular you become. Once your page becomes recognized as a popular look, you’ll likely gain more followers who add and view your page.

All items on Looklet are provided and selected by a Looklet stylist. Right now, there’s more than 3,500 items on Looklet. There are many categories to select including tops, suits, dresses, hosiery, skirts, jeans, jewelry, bags, shoes, scarves, bikinis, underwear, tattoos and accessories (such as umbrellas, dolls, masks, bottles, books and wings), jackets, hats, and many more.
It doesn’t end just like that. Those clothes, shoes and bags are also listed from clothing lines, brands, and designers around the world. They are also known for being pricey.
    
But Looklet is a virtual paper-doll in 21st century, however. You are permitted to pick a beautiful top by Diane Von Furstenberg, a wonderful dress by Hugo Boss from the runway, shoes by Christian Louboutin, an adorable handbag by Marc Jacobs, and see the various Mulberry, Bianco, Forever 21, Max Mara, Tod’s, and other collections on Looklet to mix and match on your model. 

Another good thing is Looklet has a styling contest for its users to win a prize. Last month was a Tommy Hilfiger jacket valued at US$470. Before joining the contest, you need to have one prize-item used in one of your looks and a competitive “heart” total to compete with others.
Moreover, Looklet has its virtual magazine and the editorial content – all revolving around the application – in which models, celebrities, designers, fashion role models, and featured users in the real world are reviewed and interviewed. They are asked to make Looklet looks of their own.
One thing that would make Looklet better is if there was a male version. 

Looklet, however, is all about the love for creativity, style and new-technology fun where you can create great looks. Do not be surprised if you become addicted.

the newlywed in town, congrats dude!

The union of two living creatures
never ever be said and done
As things come and things gone
the world values it by any measures

Some said marriage is a grace
part of life we need to embrace
God’s gift for us to contemplate
the art of living by the rules of fate

Some said marriage is an image
keeping people in a huge cage
where freedom is scattered and withered
and all the regrets are wondered

Some said marriage is a phase
forcing us to fight against each case
and fly around like a bewildered dove
trapped in what so call the game of love

All of us dream of a happy marriage
like the one in princess stories
But life is not a fairy tale
logic and truth we must inhale
Bitter sweet come in one package
marriage rises challenge in every age

Yet each of us can form a story
with love, tender, and laughter
which will evolve in no worry
towards a happy ever after 
.
Sidik and Rina
Congratulations for both of you..

I'm gifted, but I hide it well...

I'm not stupid, I just lack of common sense.
Who’s stupid, the stupid that called the stupid, stupid, or the stupid who was called stupid by the stupid?
Repetition is a sign of stupidity. Repetition is a sign of stupidity. Repetition is a sign of stupidity. Repetition is a sign of stupidity. Repetition is a sign of stupidity...
A lot of beautiful people are stupid. There’s a tremendous amount of idiots who look so good. It’s frightening.

I need you

 
 
Met a pretty young lady, should I say bitch
Will I ever see you again
Why do you do this to us men
And that's why we call them bitches
Trying to find you is like a needle in a haystack
I was so confused
I came so close, you touched my body
You left me standing like a statue, baby I need you
Until we meet again, my heart's on bail
Wherever you are right now, I just wanna let you know that

I'm going mad, I need you
you're one in a million
