Harry The Boy Banker

The weirdest thing is happening here on the sales of the final HP book. Tesco and Carefour decided to give a huge discount on the books and the dirt stupid local bookstores decided not to sell the books citing unfair business. Borders was smarter (yeh they should be, they're not local) went on with the sales and as expected they're sold out (despite selling at the full price!). Seriously, the local bookstores are accusing T and C of undercutting their business or something, dudes, listen, people want cheap books, we have the most expensive book prices anywhere in the world. I would love to see Tesco opening a bookstore! Screw with the unfairness, this is fair business, just look at what Amazon did with the prices. You know what's unfair? What's unfair is that the book seller's are not serious in pressuring for the prices of books to go down. Hell I might even get the book for fun at Tesco. I mean you can protest but why the heck do you stop selling it? The book will probably sell if it's a thousand bucks! [All the past tittles of HP and LOTR are sold at all Payless books around KL for cheap prices.]

So now that the series came to an end, what's going to happen? Will the kids go back to their real life? Will they even read anything else after this? Or will JKR come out with a new series? Or gasp! a Potter reunion book? Probably she can dig something out of all the fantasy books out there and mash up something. Kids if you're reading my blog, You Shouldn't! but if you do, read the fcking book, dump it and go get a real book! Seriously magic and witches don't teach you anything!

First Contact, Remixed

On the last Thursday of the year, about half past 10 local time, they landed in the garden of the White House. The security never knew what hit them, in no time all the men in blue and black and whatever colour they’re in were rolling on the ground laughing. Apparently the aliens hit them with laughing gas. Good, now we know they have some sense of humour and wont bomb us…hemmm…senseless. Another half an hour went past, the president was hiding under his table, the secret service nowhere in sight. Thinking of the worst, he reached for his cell phone and dialled 911 with his trembling fingers. So much for him, the aliens UFO, which funnily enough is shaped like a saucer, lighted up like a Las Vegas casino, sans neon signboard. A door opened up and from it rolled down a weird looking robot with a huge plasma screen TV for its head. Words fail to describe alien technology, literally, so I’m using earth analogy. Oh, and by the way, I am the dude, who saw it all.

for, its during the rainy seasons
when we sit admiring
the cool breeze and wandering droplets
we realize we are admiring the beauty of loneliness
from afar, of you and me
