The Making of a Professional Photographer

The following video (youtube) is a humorous flick on the rise of a professional photographer. He started with a disposal film camera until he got his DSLR Nikon camera and various lenses, some are even long ones.

The main character worked out with his gear, and I mean worked out like in the gym. The soundtrack, if I’m not mistaken, I think is the soundtrack in the movie Rocky Balboa while he was as well working out preparing for his bout against the current champion.

Anyways, here’s the video:

You Are Not Stallone

slygym.jpgIt seems like Sylvester Stallone is reviving all of his big time movies from the past. At the age of 60, Stallone just simply refused to grow old.

After Rocky Balboa hit the movie world in late 2006, another movie is coming up, entitled…. you guessed it right, it’s “John Rambo”!

A spoiler by IMDB:

Vietnam veteran John Rambo (Sylvester Stallone) has survived many harrowing ordeals in his lifetime and has since withdrawn into a simple and secluded existence in Bangkok, where he spends his time salvaging old PT boats and tanks for scrap metal. Even though he is looking to avoid trouble, trouble has a way of finding him. A group of Christian human rights missionaries, led by Michael Burnett and Sarah Miller, approach Rambo with the desire to rent his boat to travel up the river to Burma. Continue reading.

Youtube Video Awards

Youtube recently held this Youtube Video Awards 2006, and they have announced the winners already.

2006 was a pioneering year for online video, user-created content and the YouTube community. You let us into your bedrooms, created new forms of entertainment, and radicalized popular culture. Now it’s time to reflect on what a tremendous year it was and recognize the best of the best during the first YouTube Video Awards.

These are actually for original videos by individuals. Awards were given to six videos in six categories. Obviously, ithey’re in youtube. So for the benefit of the readers whose only access to the internet is their office where youtube is blocked, I’ve included a short review of the winning videos below:

Most Creative

Entitled “Here it Goes Again,” a video of four people dancing to the beat of the song that I think is also entitled “Here it Goes Again”. What made this video so unique is that they were dancing to the flow of 8 tread mills running at like 5 kilometers per hour (?). You’ll be amazed by their movements, it must have took them quite some time to practice!

These are actually the winners in their category. But you can still find the runner-ups just as amazing and entertaining. Head over to the Awards Home for more videos. For me, though, I think I’ll dig deeper into the Most Creative category because I discovered a lot more great videos in there just like the one below:

Lex Luthor and Smallville

I have been a fan of Smallville, and maybe you can say that I’ve been one of the followers of the Clark-and-Lana tale. Though, I’ve not watched it for quite sometime now. We’ve no cable tv and no access to youtube (so far, we’re still at the mercy of Qtel).

Anyway, news about it is that Michael Rosenbaum (aka Lex Luthor) is leaving after the next season. Counting with my fingers, I think the current season is season six, so the next season is seven, therefore Lex is gone after the seventh. Does this mean no more Smallville Season Eight?

Lex Luthor

Can you firmly believe that Smallville can still go on without Lex Luthor? For sure, switching him with another bald-headed will affect audience impression.


What really is the reason, I don’t know. For me, I’m too busy thinking about when will Qtel install our ADSL connection.
