Quentin S. Crisp and I have started a new writing magazine. It's writing what we like, when we want. Other contributors are coming soon.
There is a new short story from me up, so go read it.
And tell your friends and family.
Here is a picture of Shinohara Ryouko sitting on the toilet:

Antonioni proves himself one of the greatest filmmakers of all time with 'Zabriskie Point'. Like the best movies, no explanation is necessary. This literally destroys shittier films, like 99% of everything released now.

This post is dedicated to my most favourite person in the world (for the day) Suanie. Selflessly sacrificing her time to help me translate a script from English to Malay for a TV movie audition/ casting session tonight, Suanie has proved beyond a doubt that, she's awesome in many different levels.

I have made several mentions as early as April that I was trying to make a follow-up to GIRL DISCONNECTED (that's my last short film). It was planned to be a Jun-Ai (Pure Love) short film. By Pure Love, I meant a wholesome romantic tearjerker which would involve terminal illness, self-sacrifice, tragic separations, doing everything for love, the all-conquering power of love, shy holding of hands, subtly poetic declarations of love etc. Its tentative title was RED BEAN SOUP, which was really a code name, I was planning to really call the film WINTER IN KL. But since I'm used to referring to it as RED BEAN SOUP, I'll refer it as RED BEAN SOUP throughout this entry.

WIRED's collection of best Transformers Fan Photos inspired me to dig out an old friend of mine that I hadn't touched in years. (yes, an article did this, NOT the film itself... probably because Megan Fox overshadowed everything else)

I enjoyed Transformers. I think it's the best Michael Bay film in a long time. For better or worse, Michael Bay has stamped his signature on the film, the slow-mo, the herky jerky editing, 360-degree panning cam (which I couldn't help but smile at, since it was parodied by HOT FUZZ as well, which I saw last week) the hyper-kinetic cinematography. Yeap, riddled with Bay-isms, film looks like a music video and a commercial, and ultimately, Transformers is really a Michael Bay film that happens to have... Transformers in it.
Many people I know, many blogs I've read have raved about the film. I'm not surprised, it's an entertaining popcorn film, a joyride for the masses. It's funny, it's action-packed, it's good eye-candy (besides the robots, MEGAN FOX provided the rest of the visual candy)
