Personal opinions

"It's the soul afraid of dying, that never learns to live"

Well, here's my view on things. The soul is a word given to what we call conciousness. It is the part of us that allows us to be aware of what's going on around us. If you are unconcious, then you wouldn't really know what going on around you.

My 'soul' is afraid of dying. For with death there can be only 2 possible outcomes.

1) There really exists another realm, called heaven and hell. Of which, according to my previous beliefs, will send me automatically, to hell. Not a really pleasant thought, nor one that I look forward to.


2) There is no other realm called heaven and hell. I'll die and be buried, or cremated and the slow process of decay would begin. Which would lead me to not knowing anything, nor being able to experience anything. Another really bleak ending, one that, like the above, I don't look forward to.

But of course, the word 'Living' is rather subjective. What would it mean to live life?
We've heard of many people telling us to live life to the fullest. But what does it really mean? Does it mean to take risks and do exciting yet dangerous things, such as bungee jumping into a volcano or rock climbing up the side of the Grand Canyon? Or does it mean to just live life everyday, you wake up, brush your teeth, have breakfast, go to work, come back home, have dinner, talk with family, do some work again, sleep, and repeat the cycle?

Well, it's really a personal thing I suppose. There are no right or wrong answers, there are no guide lines to follow. No laws governing how one should live life.
So for the above quotation, I'd change it to...
"It's the soul afraid of dying, that will live the most."

Once again, I'm not saying anyone is right or wrong, just merely pointing out my own opinions and views.

The Hickey Underworld - Blond Fire

A music video by a Belgian band
Macabre and disgusting. Yet fascinating and thought provoking.
Contains nudity, gore and pretty much some rather nasty stuff. Don't watch and eat/drink at the same time.
I'm serious about the warning.

Oh, and don't watch with children around.


Phantomrider. The very name of the song caught my attention, and ever since I knew it would be one of the songs in the neue album, "Humanoid" I've always wanted to hear it. And now Tokio Hotel has released a 2:15 snippet of it. I've listened to it and I'm loving every bit of it. Suprisingly the new album has quite a few soft sides to it. Although the cover art seems cold and metallic, some songs in it are really soft and heart warming. "Phantomrider" being one of them, and also "World behind my Wall". These 2 songs have me captivated, and makes me feel like a giddy schoolgirl, who has a crush on... Well, you get the picture. Anyways I have the snippet with me and I'm really excited. Let's see if I can put it on my blog home page.

Here's what Bill said about Phantomrider, "It's about being close to someone you really never met before. You want to escape from something and you want this ghost-like soulmate to come away with you because it's the only thing you have faith in. The track carries hope."
Super phantastischer! I can't wait till 6th of October!

German post? Super!

I'm learning German on my own, so I'm gonna try to do this post in German. Grammatically, it may be wrong, but hey, at least it's worth a passing grade for effort eh?

Heute war mein Tag ziemlich langweilig, nicht viel geschehenes. Ich habe heute Morgen an ungefähr 9:49 bin aufgewacht, und dann ich habe nur benutzend meinen Laptop angefangen. Ich bin so zu meinem Laptop für meine Arbeit, meine Spiele, meine Musik, und anderen Stoff befestigt. Ich würde sagen, dass nicht viel heute vollendet wurde, als ich nur zu Hause geblieben bin, und habe den Computer benutzt, der Musik und Spielen einiger Spiele zuhört. Auch denke ich, dass ich sehen kann, warum Bill Nena mag, ist sie ein phantastischer Sänger und ihre Lieder überraschen. Dieser Posten ist kurz, weil es nicht viel zu besprechen gibt, und auch weil mein Deutsch nicht zu gut ist.

Gute Nacht Ihnen alle!

Im der Studio

Here are 2 more video clip, courtesy of MTV, of Tokio Hotel in their recording studio in Los Angeles. Watch it and enjoy!

Without any form of salvation, people will revert to their basest of instincts. Self preservation. And that's why politics and religion was created.

Well, I spent the entire day at Ngee Ann City today, arriving there at 11:00am and left there at about 5:30pm. I got an AX sleevless vest, that looks totally rad. Tomorrow Tokio Hotel will be on Habbo Hotel, and I can't wait for the release of their new album, "Humanoid".

I'm am totally hooked on their new track "World behind my Wall". It's a really great song that brings great contrast to the new album as it is way softer than the other songs, such as "Noise", "Automatic", "Dark side of the Sun", etc,etc... In any case it is a fantastic new album and I just can't wait. Alas I have to...

Well I'm just gonna go and rewatch some TH music videos, it's really, really good and does a world of good for my mood.

Saturday, September 26, 2009


Just one more week, and a few days, and the new album will be out! I can't wait for it! I've pre-ordered my albums, but I don't expect it to arrive on the day of release. In anycase I'm looking forward to listening to the new songs. It's gonna be fantastic. Really proud of Tokio Hotel for being nominated for the MTV awards for "Best Group" 3 years in a row. I'm so gonna catch them on that day.

Tokio Hotel Fuer Immer!

Tom playing the piano?! Nein!

Here's a video of Tom playing something I never thought he knew. The piano. Not only is he good looking, but also multi-talented. I've no idea what song he's playing on the piano, it could be a totally unrelated song from Tokio Hotel, or it could be the new track "World behind my Walls". In anycase Tom's a super guitarist, and a wonderful pianist as well. I hope to see more of him playing the piano!

So without further ado, here's the video clip, courtesy of MTV.

I'm quite tired right now, but I'm still gonna do some blogging before I head over to dreamland. In my current state of tiredness, my mind isn't exactly functioning at 100%. In fact I would say it's only operating at 20%, which includes the usage of my 5 senses and thinking of what to blog right now.

Well then, no.1, I've been eligible for the Diploma Plus Programme, as I've said in my previous post, and I'm probably either going to take computer software programming, or reject this opportunity. In anycase I've gotta think this through and make a decision in a few days time.

No. 2, I wouldn't be wrong in saying that people lie. And when it's from people closest to you, it hurts more. Strangely it doesn't surprise me that this has happened. In fact if you're reading this, you'd probably have no idea of what you've done. It also goes to show what I really mean to you. I've leaned on you alot, so that probably makes you think that I wouldn't survive without you. Well, you're wrong. Let's see how far this goes. Probably a few weeks, a few months. We'll see.

No. 3, if I ever see Tokio Hotel, I've only this warning for them, "Don't let me hug you. Cause I'll never let you go." Surprisingly, this thought came to me while I was jogging yesterday. Wierd huh? Anyways Tokio Hotel will be on Habbo Hotel on the 27th of September to hang out with their fans. Habbo Hotel is gonna have to start up a new server just for this day, cause it's gonna be flooded with lots of fans. In fact, I expect the server to crash. Haha! Well, Kelvin, IF you're reading this at all, this isn't a phase, and I'll always like Tokio Hotel, even after they've disbanded.

No. 4, related to no. 3, if I ever look sad, or pissed off, or whatever negative mood, it's most likely that I've not had my daily dose of Tokio Hotel. Each time I see them, either on stage, or on Tokio Hotel TV, or even in pictures, I'll just smile. It's this kind warmth that they exude, and makes me just want to smile. And while, I may never get to see them in person, I'll probably earn big bucks by the time I'm 25, and pay to hang out with them for 1 day. Tom and Bill would be 28, Gustav, 29 and Georg hitting 30. But it doesn't really matter. If I'm a praying man, I'd pray for them to last forever.

No. 5, I'm hungry... I've not eaten and I went swimming just now, so I'm peckish. But on one hand my brain says, "Don't eat!" while the other half says "Just indulge!" Whatever the decision's gonna be later will determine how I feel about myself later. Mein gott! I sound like an emotional eater who's on a diet with really bad hunger pangs...

Well... That's all for now. Gonna play my guitar for a bit before going off to dream about Tokio Hotel!
Tokio Hotel Feur Immer!

Noise & World behind my Wall

I've just listened to "Noise", the very first track of Tokio Hotel's neue album "Humanoid". There's only one word for it: Ausgezeichnet!
The song is highly reminiscent of "Scream", also the very first track of one of their first albums "Schrei". Noise hasn't really deviated from the punk rock scene that Tokio Hotel originally came from unlike "Pain of Love" which gave a completely new sound to the band.
Next is "World behind my Wall" I wanted to cry when I heard the song. It's something like a mix between "Spring Nicht" and "An deiner seiter (Ich bin da)". But it's a slow rock ballad with deep, powerful, emotional meanings. When you listen to this song, according to Bill, you've gotta be prepared to let everything drop, all the walls and masks. That's what I did when I heard the snippet, and I nearly cried. It's just powerful, mind-blowing, and beautiful, just like the universe. I'm looking forward to the release of the album and can't wait for more sneak previews from the guys!

I was watching this programme called, Voices in Time on the History Channel this afternoon, and today's man of the hour is Fidel Castro. Interesting programme and helps people to know who Castro is. Anyway the purpose of this post is to give you another example of my previous post, as a comment on Castro’s recovery from intestinal surgery, U.S. President George W. Bush said: "One day the good Lord will take Fidel Castro away." Hearing about this, Castro, who is an atheist, ironically replied: "Now I understand why I survived Bush's plans and the plans of other presidents who ordered my assassination: the good Lord protected me."

I love the way Castro made a witty comeback. But this goes to show how religion divides nations. Castro has commented that he would like US Cuban relationships to improve, but if the leader of the US makes such a comment, rather than thanking God for his recovery, then how can it happen?

Anyway, I've just checked my results, and my GPA is 3.833. Not too bad. I'm also eligible for the Diploma Plus PRogramme, which will allow me to study for another diploma, so when I go into the workforce I'll have an extra edge over the competition.

Oh and also, Tokio Hotel will be on Habbo Hotel on the 27th of September. I'll be there, so I can see them, and talk to them! And hopefully they'll choose my question to be featured in their upcoming video.
Ich liebe Tokio Hotel, sind sie das beste Band der Welt!

Religion divides. Ironic isn't it?

I can't help but see religion dividing people instead of what it was originally meant to do: Bring people closer together... One example is that of Christians and non-Christians having a written fight on the Youtube comment page of Sun's Fancy Free video... It not only turns me off completely but makes me feel that religion should be abolished not because it teaches the wrong morals or values, but because it pulls people away from one another.

It seems to me that a peaceful future cannot involve religion. Peace and religion don't seem to go hand in hand, ironically. It seems the Soviets had the right idea of advocating atheism, rather than religion. Of course it wasn't really done for the sake of peace. So the idea was right, just wrongly used. I don't really get it why the Jew, Christians and Muslims are really fighting one another... Just because only Christians believe that Jesus is the son of God isn't a good enough reason to fight. Just another example of why people fight because of misunderstandings, rather than genuinely hating one another.

Well this is something I see from my own point of view. I'll always respect and try to understand other opinions and view. But I'll fight if they are imposed upon me.

Note: This is a picture of the crusades, which were a series of "holy wars" fought by the European powers against the Muslims in the Middle East, with the objective of capturing Jerusalem from the so called "heretics".

Bill's laughter is contagious!

Oh my gosh... I'm so high right now... No idea why, must be because it's 3 am. Oh wait... It's because I'm currently thinking of Bill when he's laughing! He's so cute when he laughs. Anyway just finished watching "Tokio Hotel TV: Caught on Camera" and I'm still enjoying it so much! Anyway, I got internet connection at Cynthia's place, so I'm gonna take this opportunity to blog. Nicht, dass es viel gibt, zu besprechen, außer, dass einige Leute nur so wankelmütig bedacht sind. Einen Moment ist es diese Entscheidung, den nächsten Moment es ist ein anderer.

Well I'm gonna go watch my other TH vids on youtube now, before I lose the internet connection.
Gute Nacht!

Oh ja, und Tokio Hotel Fuer Immer!

Sunday, September 20, 2009

I was up till 2:00 am this morning... And woke up at 9am, 7 hours later... That's 7 hours wasted... It'll be a goal of mine now to eliminate the need for sleep, so that all the precious 24 hours can be used up by us! Haha! Oh well... Will post more on this topic on my rather new blog, Transhuman Ayron. Check it out if you're interested.

Anyways, was watching DW-TW (German News) and they were currently airing this programme called popXport. It talks about the latest music scene in Germany, and boy, oh boy! Tokio Hotel was featured along with their new song, "Automatisch/Automatic" I'm so happy! Another 2 more days and I can get Tokio Hotel's new single! I really do hope that when they say it'll be released everywhere, it'll include Singapore. Well, just gonna chill for awhile before heading to CG and a jog... Can't really say that I'm looking forward to it. It seems my view on things have changed alot. But in anycase, thanks to Wei Yang for the invite.

Saturday, September 19, 2009

I hat the fact that I've been sleeping in the wee hours of the morning and waking up around 11am... It's just seems like such a big bloody wast of time! Time... The very first enemy of man... Every second means we've aged and are 1 second closer to death... *Sigh*

Well, to elaborate more on my little comment in the previous post, I'm not gonna change course anymore. Yeah, I'm just gonna work hard on my maths, and digital electronics, my PEEE, and that's it for the 1st year. I mean, I'm already half way through the year, so why quit now. Of course I'll have alot of catching up to do for maths and DE, but I know if I do my best I can work it out. 2nd year will be more interesting, and I've decided to take Bio-electronics and Nano technology as my electives next year. Gotta do something about my maths...

Well I'm gonna go for dinner with my paternal grandma afterwards, so I look forward to it.

Lead me not in to temptation

I just saw this really cute and funny vid on Tom's blog, and have decided it's too precious not too share. Why share it if it's on Tom's blog already? Cause I have feeling none of you will go and see his blog. So anyways, here it is! Enjoy!

Oh, The Temptation from Steve V on Vimeo.

Are you Automatisch?

Here's a little widget for y'all to have fun with. Enjoy!
Counting down to "Automatic's/Automatisch's" and "Humanoid's" release date. Can't wait.

Oh, and I've decided not to switch course.

Thursday, September 10, 2009

What does "Automatic" mean to you?

Here's a video clip of Bill and Tom explaining why they chose Automatisch/Automatic as the song title. After watching the video, you realize it's so true. And it gives me something to think about and post on my new blog,

If you've yet to check it out, please go and just take a look. It turns out that the transhumanist community isn't as small as I thought it would be, but it's still small when comparing it to the number of people alive on the planet.

Well I'm not gonna bore you with my transhumanist thoughts here. So here's the video clip, watch and enjoy!

Zwei Neue Sang

Here are 2 new songs by Tokio Hotel that will be featured in their new album, "Humanoid". And the 2 new songs are...

1)Pain of Love
2)Human conncet to Human

Pain of love is a completely new sound for Tokio Hotel, and in fact you can't really identify that it's Bill singing until the chorus. That aside, it's a nice song, but rather dark and kinda angsty. And the title gets one thinking, Pain of Love? How can love be painful? Isn't it suppose to be a wonderful thing to be in love? Well, just listen to the music and let me know what you think about it in the cbox!

Pain of Love - Tokio Hotel

Human connect to Human is a more upbeat song with a happier note, and in fact if you thinka bout it and listen to the lyrics, it's kind of "kiddy". But it's still a great song and I hope you enjoy it as much as I did! Well do me a favour by listening to the song and let me know what you think about it in the cbox!

Human connect to Human - Tokio Hotel

What a party!

Oh my gosh! I'm so jealous of Bill and Tom, and the 20 people who were invited to their birthday party. Turns out that they rented out Heide Park Soltau, an amusement park in Germany, and had a ton of fun there.

Imagine, no waiting in line for any rides... *Dreaming*
*Sigh* What a way to celerate a birthday...
How nice it would be if I could do that for my kids next time...
I would shower them with love, and pamper them...

Tokio Hotel Fuer Immer!
Only another 2 weeks to go before the release of their new single, "Automatisch/Automatic"

For those who have not listened to the track or watched the video, I highly recommend that you watch and enjoy it!

Beichte - Tokio Hotel

Okay, went back to Centris again today to do a thorough checking for defects. And guess what...
Major defects! In fact my dad got a good friend of his, who happens to be an architect himself, to check it out, and he says it's not fit for human habitation. In fact he told my dad to get our lawyer to write a letter to the developer to make a complaint and demand compensation.

Oh well... I guess we may not be able to move in by December this year, but it's alright...
So long as I get a new room I'll be fine.

And oh yeah, I just sent my laptop for repairs at Sony... Hopefully I'll get it back by next week...
5 working days to fix a laptop? Gosh...

I so can't wait for "Automatisch/Automatic" and "Humanoid" to hit the stores!

Anyway here's Beichte by Tokio Hotel

Beichte - Tokio Hotel

Automatisch/Automatic Video Premiere (Part 2)

Oh yeah! I was the 680th person to view the music video premiere of "Automatisch/Automatic".
It is a great music video and the lyrics are catchy.

In the begining you may think, "Hey, there's no link to what Bill is singing." but nearer to the end you'll be like "Ah, now I see!"

I especially like the part where the robots are about to literally "Kiss", but the girl just breaks away. It was kind of sweet yet sad. And makes you think alot... Well at least for me.

Anyway you can view the music video at the Tokio Hotel official fanclub at...

And while you're there you may want to check out their other music videos as well.
My recommendations are "Rette Mich", "Spring Nicht", "Durch Den Monsun" and the english version "Monsoon"

I can't wait for Sept 22nd! And according to the website. It'll be available everywhere! So hopefully everywhere means Singapore as well!

Thursday, September 3, 2009

My laptop is giving me all sorts of crazy problems right now, so the chance to blog, for me is very precious now... I hope to get the problem resolved soon, then I won't have such problems.

Things are looking up right now for me.
I'll have my last paper today, and then I can apply for my course transfer.
Though I'm cutting it a little close...
The COP for interior design is 17, the same as my 'O' Level results.
So I can only hope that my course transfer is approved.

Going for my paper in another 45 mins.

Schrei so laut du kannst!

Automatisch/Automatic Video Premiere

Tomorrow is the premiere of Tokio Hotel'snew video "Automatisch/Automatic"

So the links will be up tomorrow for the video, do watch it, I'm sure it's going to be awesome! Counting down till the 22nd of September, that's when Automatisch/Automatic will be released. And being the crazed Tokio Hotel Fan that I am, I'll get both the German and English Version. Till then I'll just be re-watching and re-listening to all their music videos and tracks!

Tokio Hotel Fuer Immer!

Tuesday, September 1, 2009

Hallo, Wir sind Tokio Hotel!

Okay, so it turns out that I can't talk directly to Tokio Hotel, but I could leave them a message. And that's what I did. When I heard Bill's voice on the phone I was like, "OH MY GOD!!! IT"S BILL!!! AND I"M TALKING TO HIM!!!" Only to realize that it's a recording...

But it's fine, even on recording, he sounds so real, and perhaps that's the closest I'll ever get to talking to them. I really sincerely hope that they get my message...

Anyway here's a video of Tom and Bill performing Monsoon in an American radio station. This is the unplugged version, and I like it a lot!

Monsoon Unplugged - Tokio Hotel

Glücklicher Geburtstag Tom und Bill!
