Diversity on black notes of a piano
Diversity on black notes of a piano
This post is dedicated to my friends in my previous school.
I’m sorry for posting that post in my blog.
I know, it’s inappropriate, and it’s kinda offensive,
I mean, I’m not in your school anymore, which means I don’t really mind if you people talk about korean boy bands and all. It’s you community, and that is who you are.
Actually, that post’s main topic is about grouping. (Mostly about grouping, and I took the “Korean boy band” fan as an example). So, I didn’t intend to offend or to criticize anything.
And, that kind of stuff happens everywhere. Not just by the base of korean boy bands, but there are many other things, like sports gang, music gang, bookworm gang, and many others…
So, once again, I’m sorry if I did make you guys feel offended. I actually have no intention to do it.
And that post wasn’t meant for you, and it has a tiny bit of relevance with SBR, since you guys liked korean boy bands.
Once, again. Sorry
As you all might have witnessed, I am undergoing this dilemma since a long time ago. And you might guessed it, it’s a need-or-not to buy an Android phone.
Well, at first I thought that I am going to change my blackberry, gave it / sell it to someone and buy an andoid phone. But as I read through a gadget magazine, I suddenly got an epiphany of “Why not I buy an Android tablet-like phone instead of replacing my blackberry?” sort of stuff.
Well, I just came up with the idea of buying dell Streak, a 5 inch touch screen android “phone” (which It’s more suitable to be android phone with tablet-sized-screen).
Equipped with 1Ghz Snapdragon chipset, and 512 MB of RAM.
As for the camera, it’s built in 5mp with 2LED flash, and autofocus.
5 inch screen„ (sadly TFT)
And the other option i was talking about, was to change my blackberry to Android phone.
If this is the path that I chose, then I might have another dilemma, that is:
1. Samsung galaxy S 2
2. HTC Desire Z
3. Samsung Epic 4G
4. Samsung Galaxy Ace
5. Samsung infuse 4G
6. HTC Incredible S
Well, those are the options. :S
Pretty confusing huh. Even if I do the computer-matic way….. I still can’t get rid of 4 gadgets.
The reason why I put in the phone with the keypad on, is idk why and I know it’s stupid. It’s just feels better to actually press, than to touch :S……
Well, I hope to see reviews, and I will search for reviews and comparison about these phones
The main criteria that I am going to consider is
1. Processing speed
3. Memory (internal and external details)
4. USB ports.
6. Last and the most important one, Price………
So what do you readers suggest?
Do you go with having a phone + an android phone?
Or Change your phone to an Android phone? if yes, then which phone are you going to use?
This morning was a very bright and beautiful morning, I myself can’t recall the last time I had a morning like this. It was drizzly, but still the sky still shines.
got my tutor at 6.30, and went on studying chemistry, and talk a little bit about human’s code of nature… Idk why I talked about that, but it was fun really. Well, never mind, that’s just minor info any way..
So, in the afternoon, my grandparent from my mom, grandma from my dad, my mom&dad, and me went to Jakarta. My dad wants to see a house that’s going to be sold at a cheap price, and later on he’s gonna sell it again in a little bit higher price (that’s what I heard :S)
But before my dad went there, we came to my brother’s apartment first to put my grandparents down at the apartment. And as we arrive, my grandma from dad (let’s just call her oma), just rushed with fast walking to the front door of my brother’s apartment. I mean, that’s weird just leaving the others behind and she’s the one arrogantly saying “hah! take that you slow pokes, even if my legs are not 100% healthy, I still can walk faster than you!” kind of stuff.
Well, turns out to be that, I think my oma hates my grandparents (I use hate rather than dislike, just to emphasize). The reason for her hatred is her background culture.
Her countryland culture siad that:
1. once a woman marries a man, usually the bride have to change their family name into the husband’s surname. Which means, that the woman have to abandon her previous family, and like don’t give a damn about them anymore.. Which in my opinion, is very very diabolical. So, my mother’s parents came to stay here for a few while, and I am guessing that’s not a pretty sight for her.. Yikes……….
And it turns out to be true. I have no idea why, but my oma hates them.. (there are people who are stone headed, but in special case, she is diamond headed).
2. the parents have to live with the eldest son, so when they die, they have to die in front of the eldest son, which means they will inherit their treasures to him. Which means my oma have to live with my dad, according to the culture law.
But, I have no idea why, my mom said that “she’s going to break the culture, that means she is going to inherit her treasure to her daughter..” (weird)…. I mean, my grandparents will often live with me, and enjoy life in Bogor, but she is suffering herself. I mean, why can’t she live with my dad’s younger sister or something? She’s going to inherit her treasure to her anyway, so what’s the ******** about living with us instead of her? Oh God, i need 911 specialist in crazy matters, and SOS!
That was my rant, and this is my complains.
Why do people always have to hold on something, even if they know it’s going to make them receive tons of disadvantages? I mean, is it a “must”, or a “have to” kind of law? I don’t think so.
Think of how you wanted it to be, and at the same time, think about what’s best for others. And that is called synergizing.
And here’s my answer to the title above.
Some cultures are meant to be banned, I mean, it’s not a good thing to do. Like the rant above, the culture makes herself strangle her own neck. Isn’t it kind of idiotic? To keep this kind of culture that most of us knows that it’s disadvantaging?
But some culture do have to be saved, for example, Indonesia’s art.
The traditional dance, traditional pantings, Batik arts, Traditional music, and many other stuff. Those are Indonesia’s beautiful trademark that only resembles Indonesia.
So, correlating to life. Same as the post before, do you like your current life? your current situation?
If you do, move on, and keep doing what you’re doing. If you don’t like it, well do you want to give it up? or change for the better of your life, and the life of anyone that has a relation with your current situation.
Think about it….
I found this pic that was on my brother’s profile picture. It’s awesome (for me as a tech freak).
Well, here’s a little brief explanation to the chart above.
Well, basically are you happy with your current life?
If you are, then stay who you are, even though there might be some contradiction with your friends.
Do you feel a little bit awkward with how things are? here’s the explanation,
Well, If you are not happy with your current situation, there only 2 options available. that is just to leave it, or change IT!
So, for those who doesn’t want to change their situations now, just sit back and relax. Be a potato couch for once in your life time :D.
And for those who wants to change. You first gotta have courage. “THe secret of getting AHEAD, is getting STARTED! - Mark Twain.
That’s what Mark says. If you want to get a head, but you don’t start, due to your fear, then that’s what you’ll get.
If you don’t act a thing, then you want to change a thing. Simple and fair isn’t it?
I know, it’s hard to change, and some people might say “Don’t change who you are, you are who you are and that is what makes you unique.”
Well, it’s true, though seeds can change from just seeds, to trees. But they hold 1 thing in common, they are: they have wood.
And that “wood” is what makes you unique. It doesn’t really matter if you change or not, be creative for one, get the hell our of your comfort zone, and start your pick-nick bags and go challenge yourself. and I once did that, and I actually succeeded 2 attempts, and I am the proudest man ever (by that time)…
I once had a bad relationship with this friend of mine from grade 7. Rumor said that she liked me a lot, and a lot, and a lot. But, I badmouthed her, sooo yeah…. sorry….. (if you’re reading this).
But, when I came back to Kesatuan, I dared myself to talk to her, confess the heart out of me, apologize like how I should be. And
VOILA! We’re friends now. We helped each other with home works and tests(I know it’s not a good stuff, but that’s what we called “team” work).
So. I felt great now, I fell like, this is how friendship should be, how my friendship between me and her should be… :D (to avoid any misunderstanding, note: this girl has a boyfriend already)
So, I did the basic algorithm of life.
Do I like my current situation?
YES / !NO!
Do I want to change my current situation? !YES! /
Then change it, and I DID succeeded!!
see, how simple is that. It might not look like a good idea at first, but it’s a good idea for me at the end… not just a good idea, but mutually beneficial :D
So, how about you readers?
Do you feel you are happy with whatever situation you are?
If you don’t, loop over the chart. And as you loop over, build your wall of wills up, so you won’t runaway from the battlefield, between you, and your tiny scared little self..
Best of luck mate!
p.s: Feel free to share your experience, and if you’re afraid to state your name, don’t worry. just put on a fake name (e.g: anonymous), and I will be there to help you. And let’s see if other readers supports you :D
(picture: from my brother’s blackberry profile picture)
and here’s the part that I just popped up in my head, so I’mma write it down.
- It’s my granny’s birthday, and I really forgot to prepare a birthday present for her. And here’s the kinda stupid idea. At one evening, my grandma asked me to buy a washroom freshener in a mini-market near to my house. So I bought it, and then went to my friend’s house. And It’s nice to finally meet my friends again, chit chat a little, and they showed me the dance which made them won the dance competition, and Marcelle is soooooooooo, LUDICROUS!!!!!.
So I went home, and said to my grandma “Oma, I got a birthday present for you *showing the washroom freshener*” hahahahaha. I know, I know I used to forget most of my friend’s and family’s birthdate (sad me)….
Well, that’s the only thing forgot posting.
Oh well, move on to today
I just finished watching the video of my performance in SPH, and I realize that I trust my ears better than other people, eventhough he’s my ex-teacher. Well, it turned out that, in the middle of the performance, I can’t hear the bass sound at all. So, that’s not really pretty isn’t it? :(.
If I had just turn the volume of the amplifier a bit bigger, I might get the title “best bassist”.
According to Evan (my bass friend, who got the best bassist title), said to me, “The judge came to me while recess and told me that I have the best bass sound, your bass sound it’s the only sound that indulges the judge”. So, yeah, I think he won just by sound……
Skills, If you’re talking about the note structure, I think I may have won the game.
But, if you’re talking about the harmonization, he will win the game… So, that’s the pro and cons about me and him
Nevertheless, everybody is different in their own way… I am much more of a percussion man, he’s more like a man in the notes..
And the good thing is, we both share our ideas and our skills to each other.. We never look down on one and another, but we tend to look at each other as mentors.. and we love sharing ideas about songs :D, I hope I can meet people in Canada whose like Evan…..
Wow, look at the time, gotta rush to bed now…
My dream awaits. Toodles :D
So. let’s see, *opening new tab to go to my own tumblr and see my previous post’s date*
I haven’t blog for about a week?!
oh well, here’s what happened within a week.
The previous week was majorly awesome and minorly suck……
I like to start with the bad news first.
- So, I got tons of homework that should be finished
- I got ton’s of materials that should be learned for tests….. (oh, the horror)
- and I have to practice my bass for the SPH “Peace of Arts” pop band competition, and ended up making my (what was that word again where your skin thickens? *looking up in dictionary.reference.com/crossword/index.html) skin “enure” (please tell me if anyone knows about the word).
So the good part is:
- We did gave out a heck of a great performance, and we ourselves enjoyed it on stage.
- I managed to get some of my points higher than I got before semester 2.
p.s: so that means I won’t be putting any “?” anymore :D
And that kinda leads to another bad news:
- We un-purposely brought out 2 songs, which is against the rule of the pop band competition, and we got disqualified for that
BUT!!! the good news (again) is:
- One of the pop band committee told us that if the competition were to abide the rules, we would’ve got silver medals :”(. so sad,
- and after I got home, I searched some of the commenting agent for tumblr, and I found this! Disqus… hahaha, so now you dear readers who wants to comment have the freedom to!
all you need to do,is just press the “…notes &…comments” or the title of the post, and wait for the posting agent to load, and poof! there you go!!!.
So, I don’t know if I might migrate to wordpress. Oh well, let’s see later.
So, note to self and for you readers.
When you are about to do a group work, make sure that you got your heads synchronized, otherwise, the tragedy above might happen.
“What if it’s already undergoing?”
Well, in my opinion, stop it before it goes any further/deeper. It’s easier to start over when you made an inch move, rather than start again when you have made a 1kilometer move… got it memorized?
Until then people, I’m gonna doze off and have my midnight-until-morning movie…
So, it didn’t turn to be morning, but afternoon.
Oh well, anyway.
So, yesterday was Valentine’s day (St.Valentine). So how was your valentine’s day?
I bet there are tons of you who got asked to be someone’s date, or just, have a good time receiving chocolates…
I am quite lonely but happy yesterday, although I’m single and still attracted to a girl… :D
Yesterday, I got no messages, no dates, and only 1 chocolate from my friend. (at least it’s better than nothing at all).
Well, looking at my friends doing crazy stuff in Valentine, makes me kinda jealous. To be frank, I actually want to ask her out, but I don’t think that’s a good idea for me.
I am focusing on my educations first and then try to contact her once again… *sigh* pathetic me…
Flowers, Chocolates, letters, poems. Yep, I remember those times with my recent ex. To be frank, it ain’t like a valentine at all. Well, sorry to bring up the memories back and dequalitize the moment.
But yeah, I just realized it now… It’s like we did this subtle promise to make something spectacular whenever we encounter our date of the date… sooo, because it became a habbit, valentine didn’t mean that much as it suppose to be. So, yeah……. drag……….
So how about you people? I hope you enjoy your fun loving day. And still celebrating it up until now, by hoping more and more and eventually becomes reality.
So here’s my personal news, I’m thinking of changing my blog to wordpress, because I can’t seem to find how to comment a blog, or make people reply my blog for those who doesn’t own a tumblr…. getting confused here :S.
So, I’ll be posting the links when I’m finished constructing the new home for black inks.
Until the, see ya virtually :D
For not posting in a long period of time, blame the home works for this
So here’s my diary.
I went to Edrick’s birthday party located in Benihana, Grand Indonesia, in Jakarta (obviously)
and we ate great dinner.
Although he only bought us a couple of servings but, what the heck, at least it gave me the luxury taste in my tongue.
So I met with my old SPH friends, and I never thought they changed this much.
One of my friend who used to cannot run, now smokes and drinks… (He was so innocent 5 years ago). And yeah, just surprised is all in my mind. So, I decided to observe more about their behavior. As I went out of the smoking room, I greeted my other friends of course, chatted a little with my old pal named Aldo (since he’s the one who looks most friendly.)
Move on to SBR community. And same thing happens again. I was being teased by some of my friends again, stating that she’s here. And asking “When will you ask her out? don’t tell me you gave up on her!”…….. Well…………. I didn’t gave up, and I never will give up anyway, but I’m just doing what I do right now…. That’s all. I’m chasing my scores first, and getting into a good university, that’s my first priotity. AND THEN, the priority becomes various after that.
Moving on to what happened. So we did ate some tempura, sushi s, indulging some jazz music, and drank a little bit of ice wine.
I never tasted ice wine before, i dislike it when i sip, but i like it when the alcohol starts to dissolve in my mouth… tell me it’s weird, because I myself am weird.
And then, I introspect myself.
I wouldn’t get this kind of experience anymore in a mere few months.
And after that few months arrived, for 2 years, I don’t think I will be having this kind of friendship again.
And by 2 years, many of my friends will be in college, so…. you can imagine how sad I am at that time.
I dear my friend so much……. especially everyone….
SPH, Kesatuan, SBR, and the new Kesatuan (meaning the new group), and of course my band friend.
