The song at the end of Hangover 2 during the end credits

Here is the song from the movie The Hangover Part 2, during the end credits.

Turn Around Part 2


Flo Rida & Pitbull

Don't ask what kind of friends you have. Ask what kind of friend you are

In interviews of celebrities or famous people who have just recovered from a tough period in their lives, whether it be with drug addiction or a dip in their careers, I often hear them talking about the company they keep.

So often I hear them saying pretty much the exact same thing. That during the tough times in their lives, they went back and evaluate the kind of friends they had around them. All of them will then go on to say that they realize that most of the people around them weren't their friends at all, but they are just hanger-ons, entourages and people who hang around them for their own benefits.  

While I agree that this is often true, and that it is good to evaluate who your real friends are, I fell that if they  truely have reevaluated their lives in order to improve it, this is not what they would be thinking.

By only asking who your real friends are is a little selfish in some respect. It can mean that you are only thinking about yourself, since you are only evaluating what you "get" from them. If you really want to turn your life around and change to a better path, the question you should be asking is who am a real friend to. They should be asking if people were to make a list of their "true friends", would they be in it? They should being asking themselves who they have been good to, instead of who has been good to them. Only by truely giving, will they find true happiness in return (yeah yeah I know it's cheezy, but it's also true).

Cosmetics Are More Expensive Than Cosmetic Surgery

I was accompanying a friend shopping the other day when she said she needed to go buy some cosmetics. So there I was strolling around the cosmetics department waiting for my friend. Out of boredom (honestly) I just checked out some of the products on offer. Wow, there are just so many line of cosmetics these days. I remember the days when there was just moisturising lotion. Now there are face creams, neck creams, hand creams, toe creams and creams for parts of your body you didn't know exits, and that's just the moisturizers.
And what is more amazing are the prices of these things, and you think boy's toys are expensive. I mean $200 for a 50ml bottle of cream is excessive, considering that all it does is make you "think" that you have a little less wrinkles. What is even worst is that these creams are made with ingredients taken from dead baby seals and tested on cute little bunnies. 

Now I don't know about you, but when I consider buying something I judge how much I have to pay for it and what I get out of it. On those terms not only are cosmetics more expensive than cosmetic surgeries, but they give less results as well.

What Type Of Shampoo Am I Supposed To Use?

After walking merrily into my local supermarket the other day to buy some shampoo, I was left dumbstruck. I found myself staring at the personal hygiene section, with a look of complete puzzlement, even more so than during my final exams.

Staring back at me are just about a zillion brands of shampoo. Just looking at all the colors and bottle designs is making me dizzy. "Err...so which brand should I choose?". I scanned the shelves quickly hoping for an epiphany. "Hmm..this bottle looks pretty", I thought to myself as I found one brand with a rather nice design, "Although I doubt it is any representation of the stuff in the bottle  though". Nevermind, looking at the price it seems ok, not too cheap to make me think it will make my hair fallout, and not too expensive I don't want to pay for it.

But my trouble does not end there, having found the brand with the bottle design I want, I now realize the brand makes about fifty different types of shampoo...because there are apparently fifty different types of hair.

"For Dry And Damaged Hair". Hmm that sounds like mine.
"Anti-Dandruff". I could use some of that.
"For Greasy Hair". Hey my hair is sometimes greasy.
"Increase Volume". Don't know what that means but sounds good.

So now I am left even more confused. What if I have dandruff AND dry and damaged hair? Do I have to buy both and mix them together for use? Why can't they just put all the good stuff together into one single shampoo? P&G are you listening to me?

Celebrity Tombstones

Celebrities and movie stars might live on forever in films and tv shows we all know and love. In the end though they are mortals just like the rest of us, and what better way to make a final statement than with engravings carved into the tombstones that mark their final resting place. So here are some of the possible things that might be written on the tombstones of our most famous stars.

Arnold Schwarzenegger                   “I’ll be back”
Bruce Willis                                       “Died Hard”
Heidi Klum                                         “auf wiedersehen”
Robert De Niro                                  “I’m Focked”
Al Pacino                                           “Never get high on your own supply”

Space Time Distortions Are Ruining My Life

I think I am personally experiencing the advance scientific concept of space-time fabric distortions on a daily basis. Every time I enter the chrono dead zone known as the "office", the flow of time seems to come to a complete standstill. It doesn't matter what I try, and believe me I have tried every method of slacking off possible, nothing seems to help.

I have tried phoning in bomb threats to my own office, but apparently my voice is too recognizable.

I have tried hacking into the HR's computers to find out the salary of everyone at work. This apparently takes more intelligence than I posses.

I have tried opening a new Facebook account, pretending to be a hot girl, photoshopping pictures of my married colleagues with said hot girl, and then tagging the photo with every person that may know them. This seems to help somewhat, but highly likely to result in me being fired...hang on...that might solve the problem after all.

Are Movies Getting Worst Or Am I Just Getting Older

“They made real movies in the old days, not this garbage”

I am sure this thought have crossed all of our minds at some point, perhaps after walking out of the latest brainless Hollywood popcorn movies with muppets for actors and not even enough action to justify it being called an action movie. Is it fair however, to say that movies in the good old days were…better?

Even though I have had this thought many times myself, I personally think it is probably unfair to make such a statement. The “good old days” are completely different for different people, while many people might agree that the older movies they saw when they were younger were better. The “good old days” for a thirty year old person might be when the newer garbage movies came out for a fifty year old person. I am sure how much we enjoy a certain movie are affected by the time we saw them. The first time we saw a particularly cool special effects it’s like…wow, the next time however, we wouldn’t be so blown away. As we get older and watch more and more movies we reach a point where we have seen it all before. There is less and less special effects and plot twist we haven’t seen. Added to this the fact that when we think back to the great movies we saw in the past, we only remember the good ones, there might just be as many garbage movies produced in the past, but we just don’t care to remember them. So all in all I would say that although movies in the “good old days” might be better, it is largely because we were younger when we saw them.

Don't You Hate It When The Trailers Are More Interesting Than The Movie You Are Going To See

So you just settled into a comfortable position in your seat in the movie theater, with a jumbo popcorn on one side and soda on the other, just looking forward to seeing the movie. Then a trailer comes on...and BAMM...you are hit with amazing scenes of special effects, great actions and an amazing cast from an upcoming movie. By the time the trailer is over you are like, "I wish I was seeing that movie", at this point you don't really want to see the movie you came to see anymore. Just like that, in less than a minute, your movie is ruined.

Don't you just hate it when that happens?

Reasons To Become A Meatarian

You might be wondering what in the world is a “Meatarian”, to those intellectuals out there having a panic attack fearing that you might not be as smart as you thought you were for not knowing this word, don’t worry because it’s a new vocabulary I just made up. So what is a “Meatarian”? It’s basically the opposite of a vegetarian, someone who only eats meat and refuses to touch any food that is the slightest shade of green. So what possible reason could anyone have of becoming a “Meatarian”…well I will tell you.

1.       Vegetables are plants. Plants absorb carbon dioxide and release fresh oxygen for us humans to breath. Livestock breathe oxygen and releases toxic carbon dioxide. So you are literally eating away precious oxygen for us with every mouthful.
2.       Plants have feelings too. For those that choose to be vegetarians out of feeling sorry for those smelly smug faced creatures, spare a thought for the poor soil dwelling organism. Not only are they unable to run or put up any kind of resistance what so ever to prevent their butchering (harvesting), which by the way uses a method that lacks any regards for being humane whatsoever. They are also unable to express any remorse at their own demise.
3.       Plants don’t complain. Forget to feed your heard a meal or let their watering trays go dry and you will hear endless wining and moaning from them. Forget to keep the ambient temperature of their bedding hay to their desire and you will never hear the end of it. You will never hear a single complain from your forever joyful crop however. Forget water them? Doesn’t matter. Forget to give them fertilizers? Don’t worry. They will fight on through life forever optimistic.
So for anyone out there still firmly holding on to their vegetarianism for reasons other than personal heath, take a look at the cute potted plant in your room and think of all their cute cousins being butchered because of you.

Politicians Only Care About Being In Power

They talk about integrity, sacrifices and changes, but their actions often contradict what they are saying. It often (almost always) seems like their overwhelming priority is either to get elected, or re-elected. So to clear things up on what is exactly going on in their heads. We have looked further into the matter.
Finally, after years of intensive research and exhaustive tests performed by the world’s foremost neuroscientists, we have finally cracked the sophisticated puzzle that is the POLITICIAN’S MIND. We are proud therefore, to present to you our findings in the diagram below. We understand that the diagram of the politician’s thought train can seem very complicated at first, but by taking time to slowly study it we are confident that you will be able to at least gain some small insight into the workings of the supremely large muscle mass that is “the politician’s brain”.

Isn't It Obvious That The Egg Came Before The Chicken

"Which came first, the chicken or the egg?", I have always found it puzzling that this saying is still being used these days. Since many other species have been laying eggs for millions of years before the chicken ever existed. So whenever I hear someone trying to use this saying to suggest some sort of causality dilemma, I always feel like enlightening them.

Why Has Everybody Else Got A Better Job Than Me?

Thinking about people I know and what they do for a living got me feeling a bit depressed recently. One is a travel photographer, his so called "work" involves travelling around to all the beautiful locations in the world, staying in beautiful accommodations...and it's all paid for. 

Another is an event organisers, putting on great parties mainly for different liquor companies, his "work" might involve the difficult task of selecting which models he should hire to hang out at different parties. The "work wall" in his office consists of hundreds of pictures of beautiful girls, and of course he has all their numbers.

Another friend works in the financial sector. He is always in his pin-stripe suit with a smug look on his face (I swear he sleeps in one). I am not surprise though with all the high powered business decisions he gets to make to stroke his ego. On top of that the obscene amount of bonuses he gets every year can't hurt.

Me and my job? It's too depressing even just thinking about it.

Life Of A Convenience Store Vendor

Life Of A Convenience Store Vendor

Customer 1: "Give me a soda".

Vendor: Thinking to myself (Do I look like Yoda or something, there's only like ten different brands and another hundred different flavors. How am I suppose to know which one you want?).

Vendor: "Em...which one do you want", spoken in a polite tone.

Customer 1: "Coke of course", spoken in a tone which makes it obvious that he thinks I am an idiot for not knowing.

Vendor: Oh...here you go sir...(!!?@#$%) thinking to myself. 

Customer 2: "Give me a soda".

Vendor: "Yes Sir", eager not to make the same mistake I hand him a Coke.

Customer 2: "No no, I want a Pepsi!", he said disgustingly.
Vendor: "Oh sorry", (why didn't you say so then)

Vendor: "Here you go", handing over a Pepsi.

Customer 2: "No no no, I want a Diet Pepsi!!!".

Vendor: (!!?@#$%) thinking to myself. 

Customer 3: "Give me a Regular Coke".

Vendor: "Here you go sir", (That's more like it).

Vendor: "That will be 50 cents".

Customer 3: "......And can I have two Pepsi".

Vendor: "Em...here you go".

Vendor: "That will be $1.50".

Customer 3: ".........Err...and give two chocolate bars".

Vendor: -_-"........."Em...Here you go".

Vendor: ...waits for further orders...

Customer 3: "...Well how much is it? Common I am in a hurry!!!".

Vendor: (!!?@#$%) thinking to myself.

Why Does It Always Rain In The Wrong Places

There are millions of farmers around the world staring at their drought stricken fields waiting in vain for some rain...and not a single drop. At the same time there are millions of people around the world who depends on good weather to make a living...and they haven't seen the Sun in days as the rain has been constantly pouring down. Then there are other places that it has been raining so much that floods are just washing away everything people own. Even worst is the fact that these different places are often just a few kilometers from each other. 

Why does it always rain in the wrong places?

The song in Something Borrowed when Rachel (Ginnifer Goodwin) was running in the rain

So last time I mentioned the songs played by the 90s cover band. This time I thought I would mention another great song that was playing when Rachel (Ginnifer Goodwin) was running through the rain.

The song is

Fake Plastic Trees


Radio Head


Her green plastic watering can
For her fake Chinese rubber plant
In the fake plastic earth
That she bought from a rubber man
In a town full of rubber plans
To get rid of itself

It wears her out, it wears her out
It wears her out, it wears her out

She lives with a broken man
A cracked polystyrene man
Who just crumbles and burns
He used to do surgery
For girls in the eighties
But gravity always wins

It wears him out, it wears him out
It wears him out, it wears him out

She looks like the real thing
She tastes like the real thing
My fake plastic love
But I can't help the feeling
I could blow through the ceiling
If I just turn and run

It wears me out, it wears me out
It wears me out, it wears me out

If I could be who you wanted
If I could be who you wanted all the time

All the time...
All the time...

The songs in Something Borrowed Played by the 90s cover band

Just saw the film Something Borrowed today, and...I really enjoyed it actually. I really liked the film even though it used the tried and tested plot line of having two characters so obviously and desperately in love, being the perfect fit for each other, yet somehow failing to realize their feelings for each other. The only thing that kind of really let the film down is the ending parts felt kind of rushed and after such a great build up all the way through the film it just left an unfulfilled feeling for me. It would have been much more acceptable if it was the beginning parts of the film that was not so great. Anyways I have been speaking off topic for way too long. One of the best part of the film was the great songs in it, and two of the best  was at a really great moment in the film, played when the two main characters (Rachel and Dex) went to see a 90s cover band for the wedding. The 90s cover band was playing two songs
The first was

How's It Going To Be


Third Eye Blind


I'm only pretty sure that I can't take anymore
Before you take a swing
I wonder what are we fighting for
When I say out loud
I want to get out of this
I wonder is there anything
I'm going to miss
I wonder how it's going to be
When you don't know me
How's it going to be
When you're sure I'm not there
How's it going to be
When there's no one there to talk to
Between you and me
Cause I don't care
How's it going to be
How's it going to be
Where we used to laugh
There's a shouting match
Sharp as a thumbnail scratch
A silence I can't ignore
Like the hammock by the
Doorway we spent time in swings empty
Don't see lightning like last fall
When it was always about to hit me
I wonder how's it going to be
When it goes down
How's it going to be
When you're not around
How's it going to be
When you found out there was nothing
Between you and me
Cause I don't care
How's it going to be
And how's it going to be
When you don't know me anymore
And how's it going to be
Want to get myself back in again
The soft dive of oblivion
I want to taste the salt of your skin
The soft dive of oblivion oblivion
How's it going to be
When you don't know me anymore
How's it going to be
How's it going to be
How's it going to be 

The second song was
Round Here


PT Walkley (Original was by Counting Crows I think)


Step out the front door like a ghost
Into the fog where no one notices
The contrast of white on white.
And in between the moon and you
Angels get a better view
Of the crumbling difference between wrong and right.
And I walk in the air between the rain, through myself and back again
Where? I don't know
Well, Maria says she's dying
Through the door I hear her crying
Why? I don't know
Round here, we always stand up straight
Round here, something radiates
Maria came from Nashville with a suitcase in her hand
She said she'd like to meet a boy who looks like Elvis
And she walks along the edge of where the ocean meets the land
Just like she's walking on a wire in the circus
She parks her car outside of my house and takes her clothes off.
She says she's close to understanding Jesus
And she knows she's more than just a little misunderstood
She has trouble acting normal when she's nervous
Round here we're carving out our names
Round here we all look the same
Round here we talk just like lions
But we sacrifice like lambs
Round here she's slipping through my hands
Run home, sleeping children better run like the wind
out of the lightning dream
Mama's little baby better get herself in
out of the lightning
She says "it's only in my head"
She says "Shhhhh I know it's only in my head"
But the girl in the car in the parking lot
Says "Man you should try to take a shot
Can't you see my walls are crumbling?"
Then she looks up at the building
Says she's thinking of jumping
She says she's tired of life
She must be tired of something
Round here she's always on my mind
Round here hey man got lots of time
Round here we're never sent to bed early
and nobody makes us wait
Round here we stay up very, very, very, very late oh
I can't see nothing... nothing round here
Will you catch me if I'm falling
Will you catch me if I'm falling
Will you catch me cause I'm falling down on you
I said I'm under the gun around here
Oh man I said I'm under the gun around here
And I can't see nothing
Nothing round here

I hope you enjoy the songs :)

Does anyone else hate Prequels

The first encounter that I had with a so called "Prequel" that I can remember was with the Star Wars three prequels. I loved the first three Star Wars, but for some reason I did not look forward to the prequels at all. It's not because I was somehow dreading that it would ruin the original, I would have really looked forward to it if it was a "Sequel", carrying on the story I really enjoyed. The idea of already knowing the path the story will lead to just really puts me off. But you don't know how the story will twist and turn?  True, but imagine watching just the ending of a movie you haven't seen, or even if one of your friends tell you the ending of  the movie. If you were going to see that movie before chances are you will not enjoy it as much, often you wouldn't even bother seeing it anymore.

Another problem with these types of films is that even though it is a prequel, the movie is made after the original. As with newer movies film goers will be rightly expecting something more spectacular, better effects, bigger stories as they would expect with a "sequel". This often creates an awkward situation where the prequel feels newer than the original. For example, in the Star Wars prequel, technologies and spaceships felt much more advanced. The way Jedis fought also seemed much more spectacular, mixing martial arts and amazing sword play. That just creates a constant conflict in my mind as I watch these movies, because I remember how dated the original (which is supposed to be newer in the movie's timeline) looked.

I guess I will just have to get used to it though, since there seems to be more and more prequels coming out these days, even prequels to prequels...:( 

House...the best doctor at getting the wrong diagnosis

I don't know what the definition of a good doctor is, but I thought it would have involved getting the correct diagnosis and therefore treating the patients correctly. Well in the seven odd seasons of HOUSE, I have yet to see him get the correct diagnosis the first time round...or even the second...or even the third. So I am not sure how he got this reputation of being one of the best doctor in the world in the first place. I could have been a great doctor too if it just involved giving random treatments until getting the correct one. Providing of course I get lucky like House and get these die-hard patients who just wouldn't die no matter how many wrong treatments you give them.

Or maybe he is just so good that he knows exactly the correct diagnosis, therefore being able to purposely give the wrong treatments first, just to watch his patients suffer...hmm...now that's a though.
