Charlie Brown All Stars app

 

the vintage design of a pop up story book

is kinda amazing

it’s not about the animation, storyline or whatsoever

but how it resembles an antique book

reliving the Peanuts comic and TV series

back in early 60’s

 

the opening

The interactive session

Charlie Brown’s All Stars

but anywhere no matter how the swipe goes

there’s only one result

the act of folding to the next chapter

how the figures fold and unfold

as if it is real paper material

Woodstock X Snoopy: Best Friends Mini

they aren’t supposed to arrive

not until 1st July

because I got them along with a

set of pre-ordered concert discs

from books.tw.com

 

just to average out the shipping fees

to make myself feeling less guilty

 

if I were to ordering these

as an individual item

the shipping fee is way higher than the item price

when it was ordered along with the second item

the shipping fee is…

roughly about the same price as the item

well… does it even make any difference?

 

somehow I was under the misconception that

they are not so petite

because of the shipping fees

and there is a book

how small can a book get

stupid me

Snoopy & Woodstock - Best Friends

 

and I don’t understand why

they have to break the order

as two separate parcels

so not environmental friendly

and all Taiwanese parcels by DHL

have to go through Hong Kong

still waiting for my discs

which is supposed to be the main item

and this one being the complement toy

 

here you go

Snoopy & Woodstock: Bes FriendsP1230224

 

I bet they felt guilty

for the shipping fees

and so they gave a free gift of

a travel notebook

with two lomo-like postcards in there

travel notebook postcards in there

 

my dad was already saying

these are the free toys you can get

along with Happy Meals

 

true story…

at least 6 sets of Happy Meals, wow!

ssshhh..

Love X Worshipism: An Ideal Husband

An Ideal Husband

written by Oscar Wilde back in 1895

An Ideal Husband

 

came as a surprise

random download from the book store chart

when I ran out of books on my bookshelf

after finally finishing <Dream of Red Chamber>

which took me like years

 

it is written in the format of a play

making it really straight forward to read

retaining the refined and witty English conversations

 

3 simple scenes

surrounding the themes of

man vs woman

politics & ambition

London society

 

an incident of theft, insider’s trade, blackmail,

intersects with the issue of love & jealousy

 

some quotes:

Morality is simply the attitude we adopt towards people

we personally dislike.

 

Women have a wonderful instinct about things. They

can discover everything except the obvious.

 

I love talking about nothing, father.

It is the only thing I know anything about.

 

We women worship when we love;

and when we lose our worship, we lose everything.

 

Fashion is what one wears oneself.

What is unfashionable is what other people wear.

Other people are quite dreadful.

The only possible society is oneself.

Higher X Faster: Snoopy Coaster

Snoopy coaster 12

 

finally found that kind of game

which is best played

while waiting for public transports

or to save you from awkward moments of

staring into each others’ face

or the potential stranger who is about to

start a random conversation

 

and trust me

it can even cure travel sickness

I got a light headache from a bumpy bus ride

then got myself a ride on the coaster

my headache was gone

 

I guess this is like

does anyone ever name this theory

it is like

you put yourself in a more terrible situation

then you found that the trivial issue you are facing

is actually quite not worth mentioning

you have even quite forgotten about it

Snoopy coaster 10

 

not too heavy

can pause anything as you like it

does not require periodical commitment

like Smurfs’ Village & Snoopy’s Street Fair do

 

nevertheless the more I play

the more addictive it gets

due  to the objectives to hit

in order to reach the next level

and saving enough coins for the upgrades

Snoopy coaster 02

 

my astigmatism is doing the ride bad

during the spooky Halloween night scene

and the WWII night war scene

I really could not see where the track is

Snoopy coaster 01

 

and I finally feel the Charlie Brown’s plight

when the kite got swalled by the kite eating trees

stupid trees with the sparkling-teeth-smile!!

Snoopy coaster 08

 

the background design is indeed quite rich

although the track runs on and on

regardless of the background scene

will never fail to link back to the Peanuts memory

Snoopy coaster 09Snoopy coaster 04

 

would say that it is a good combination

between a roller coaster simulation

and the Peanuts features

Snoopy coaster 07

 

aha

non Peanuts reader will never understand

the out of the blue appearance of

a Beethoven head sculpture in a roller coaster game

Snoopy coaster 11

 

good job Chillingo

Snoopy coaster 13

 

p.s.

and the in-app purchase is quite reasonable

and not too demanding

you know there are that kind of game

that limit your play per day

limit the items you could collect

so that you will just throw in real money

blah.. so called free games

割席分坐 X 何嘗沒想過: 唯自己吞咯

割席絕交

管甯、華歆共園中鋤菜,見地有片金,

管揮鋤與瓦石不異,華捉而擲去之。

又嘗同席讀書,有乘軒冕過門者,

寧讀如故,歆廢書出看,甯割席分坐,

曰:「子非吾友也。」

 

剛剛收到封電話通知

她:were doing the slides….

因為挺長的,只顯示了前部分

覺得有點安慰

啊。。最后一個小組作業

終于她自動提早做點東西了

 

把信息打開

哇。。很抱歉

原來是我自己沒有讀好,擺烏龍了

were doing the slides tomorrow right?

after or vefore exam?

 

交作業是后天

明天早上再去學校做

然后1點進考場

會不會搞到自己好累

 

3點考場出來

再留在學校

開始弄一份20小時內到期的作業

會不會太倉促

而且會搞到自己更累

 

重點是

我已經開始弄了

今天花了很多時間在弄

但真的不想去恢復

也不知道怎樣去回覆

知道自己會再度寫

“不用擔心,我弄一半了,

明天考試完繼續 明晚肯定搞定”

 

連我自己對自己的假惺惺

感到惡心了

 

發作業趕在星期四發給隊友

這樣她周末可以編輯

到了星期一,告訴她,我好像漏了點什么沒寫

她一臉懵懂

原來人家周末很忙,沒時間打開

我就是那句,“不用擔心,我們還有一個禮拜”

 

再多一個星期

又在星期四發了一份作業給她

還是一樣 希望她周末能夠搞定

到了星期一,為了預防悲劇重演

就問她,做到怎樣了

如果看不懂的地方,我可以解釋一下

 

她(的回覆)依然一篇懵懂

原來人家的信息太多

沒有發現我發給她的作業

還是那一句

“不用擔心,這個作業和上一個的格式很相似

我們還有三天,可以趕完的”

 

還有兩次

分別星期五和周末

我又這么不知好歹

開始滔滔不絕 討論起作業內容來了

后來得到一個回覆

“我在外面,晚上會回去看的”

 

除了一句“對不起”

我很羞愧地消失了

以其癡癡地等她晚上回來弄

第二天早上才發過來

不對 可能是她早上才起來弄的

我就很心急地把作業改了

免得第二天我又忘了那些細節

 

還有一次好好笑

去上課 是堂“咨詢”課

我準備了一些草稿讓導師過目

 

到了教室只有我一個人

咨詢后 提早回來了

也很累去問

開facebook 看見她po 了一句

“血拼治療”+ 笑臉一個

 

我常用《合掌》的訊號來表示我必須忍忍忍

開instagram 看見她也po了《合掌》的訊號

原來是去腳底按摩的照片

殺了我吧!!

 

我開始對社交網站有恐懼

自己在趕作業

不敢勞煩隊友

卻每次從那里得知

她連場看了什么電影,買了什么,吃了什么

我真的開始心理不平衡

 

第二天告訴她

我為我們組和老師討論的結果

她說 “對神發誓,我不知道有課”

 

我好想殺了自己

“無所謂。。一組有個代表就好了”

 

某個調查問卷

我弄好了所有問題 發給她

只需要編輯成比較整齊就搞定了

 

第二天在發出問卷時

等著參與人填寫

隨意翻了表格一下

發現了三個嚴重的錯字

足以影響調查結果

 

你平均用多少錢

(i)5-7

(ii)  5-10

 

我的媽

這樣他們要怎么選

我們已經打印了六十份

派發了也有二十份

 

我向她提起

她說 是照我的草稿一字不漏打出來的

我說,“對不起,可能是我的粗心”

但我回去查。。

我更本沒有打錯一個字啊

 

忍忍忍

最好的時期

也是最壞的時期

我對自己這個學期的作品都很滿意

撇開那些作品都是以組別的名義呈交的

 

致命的不是堆積如山的作業

而是那東歪西倒的隊友

但我不能讓這份不積極拖累我的積分

所以我寧愿啃了所有東西來做

 

基本上都是

我想好構思,寫下報告構造與內容

交給她弄個簡介,封面什么的

就是瑣瑣碎碎的那些

再跳回來給我修改

 

哦好像很多東西要改

企劃案簡介怎么用過去式來寫

要是我是客戶 第一眼就大打折扣了

天啊 前兩個企劃案我沒留意到這點

不會吧。。

 

最后演講的PPT當然由我來弄

畢竟所有東西都出自我這顆腦袋

假手于人。。

都是最后一分鐘隨便弄出來的

這樣做個好的企劃案也功虧一簣了

 

好想對自己說一次“不用擔心”

因為過了這個星期五就放暑假了

求神拜佛

最后一個學期回來

不會再有小組作業了

一兩個是okay的

 

七個,

七個聯名企劃案,報告,演講

我真的嘔心瀝血了

 

可能我就是這么一個

公私不分的賤貨

我不能嬉皮笑臉地告訴你

我們手牽手 我們好朋友

 

跪求

教教我怎么回覆她的信息好嗎

除了

“不用擔心。。我會搞定的”

無法復制 X 伴隨生命:就叫《演唱會》

昨天剛好在

搜《神游》的片段

解解渴

這個官方剪輯版

確實不錯

 

7月1日

快點來嘛

臨睡前看見

DVD預告新鮮出街

突然振奮了起來

心墻 X ReVisit: 好想嗑偶像劇

昨天電臺播了這首

去翻了歌詞

確實還是很喜歡

 

尤其是

把《海豚愛上貓》的劇情聯系起來

就特別到位

 

姚若龍老師的功力

確實不是蓋的

 

才發現

(i) 原來作曲是JJ

(ii) 原來郭靜也不是原唱

(iii) 原來偶像劇里那個版本是一個叫貝芳的女生主唱

(iv) 原來JJ在《她說》翻唱專輯,這首就是第一首

 

p.s

原來有好心人

把完整的《海豚愛上貓》上載在 YouTube了

而且是一個視頻就完整的一集

 

那個憂郁的小胖,徐蔚

耍酷卻有點有點木納

真的是彭于晏?

好在劇情還不錯

所以還算深刻

 

劇里柯宇綸也演上一角

不過和彭于晏的徐蔚

在劇里幾乎是零互動 沒有對戲

誰想到就五年后

兩人會因為《翻滾吧!阿信》而

真的翻滾了

柯宇綸也憑“菜脯”的角色

獲得男配角獎項

 

突然發現了一點

過了一段時間

看回從前的偶像劇

主角的變化或許很大

可能爆紅了。。

也有些消失了

 

但那些綠葉

演得很出色的綠葉

好像不太改變

主角換了又換

他們還在支撐著偶像劇的發展

一個人 眺望碧海和藍天
在心裏面 那抹灰就淡一些
海豚從眼前飛越
我看見了最陽光的笑臉
好時光都該被寶貝 因爲有限

我學著不去擔心得太遠
不計劃太多反而能勇敢冒險
豐富的過每一天快樂的看每一天

Wooh~第一次遇見陰天遮住你側臉
有什麽故事好想了解
我感覺我懂你的特別

你的心有一道牆 但我發現一扇窗
偶爾透出一絲暖暖的微光
就算你有一道牆 我的愛會攀上窗台盛放
打開窗你會看到悲傷融化

我學著不去擔心得太遠
不計劃太多反而能勇敢冒險
豐富的過每一天快樂的看每一天

Wooh~第一次遇見陰天遮住你側臉
有什麽故事好想了解
我感覺我懂你的特別

你的心有一道牆 但我發現一扇窗
偶爾透出一絲暖暖的微光
就算你有一道牆 我的愛會攀上窗台盛放
打開窗你會看到悲傷融化

Wooh~
你的心有一道牆 但我發現一扇窗
偶爾透出一絲暖暖的微光
就算你有一道牆 我的愛會攀上窗台盛放
打開窗妳會看到悲傷融化
你會聞到幸福晴朗的芬芳

陳珊妮 X 張懸: DEAR YOU AND THE BOY

一直在想

干嘛2013還沒遇見

一首真的真的好喜歡的歌

 

就馬上po上去

我“兄弟”的那座墻

報答那對天天聽我訴苦的耳朵

 

很多地方還是可以想去就去

很多原因適合考慮用完了就丟棄

親愛的 若我提起生活不是好重就是太輕

我繼續 你要隨意

DEAR YOU AND THE BOY / 陳珊妮 feat. 張懸

 

DEAR YOU AND THE BOY / 陳珊妮 feat. 張懸

作詞:焦安溥    

作曲:陳珊妮

 

像是那部我從沒看過開頭的電影
此刻的你我雖然一眼就看懂
但我也好奇你最初和你曾經

因為年輕 你追隨聽過的聲音
因為記憶 我渴望所有還未發生的事情
很多地方還是可以想去就去
很多原因適合考慮用完了就丟棄

親愛的 若我提起生活不是好重就是太輕
我繼續 你要隨意
親愛的 若你覺得愛情一定要有自己能懂的道理
你繼續 我有空聽 (那我隨意)

(Repeat all once)

我們一起討論著男人與女孩的問題
我們都喜歡這種神祕和開朗的親密

我們一起討論著男人與女孩的問題
我們都喜歡此刻女人與男孩的關係
