Star Wars Animated Feature Film!

Reading time: 2 – 2 minutes

Gosh, I’m so excited! Lucasfilm Ltd., Warner Bros. Pictures and Turner Broadcasting System Inc. are going to release the first animated feature film from the saga! Geez!

The film will be out on August 15, 2008 in North America and will be continued by the TV series on Cartoon Network by 2009!

Here’s some things from the official website:

On the front lines of an intergalactic struggle between good and evil, fans young and old will join such favorite characters as Anakin Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi and Padmé Amidala, along with brand-new heroes like Anakin’s padawan learner, Ahsoka. Sinister villains — led by Darth Sidious, Count Dooku and General Grievous — are poised to rule the galaxy. Stakes are high, and the fate of the Star Wars Jedi Knights. Their exploits lead to the action-packed battles and astonishing new revelations that fill universe rests in the hands of the daring Star Wars: The Clone Wars.

Deklarasikan Kemerdekaan, kata Björk

Reading time: 1 – 2 minutes

Declare independence!
Don’t let them do that to you!
Start your own currency!
Make your own stamp
Protect your language
Make your own flag!
Raise your flag!
Higher, higher!
Damn colonists
Ignore their patronizing
Tear off their blindfolds
Open their eyes
With a flag and a trumpet
Go to the top of your highest mountain!

Begitulah kira-kira lirik lagu berjudul “Declare Independence” yang dinyanyikan dengan penuh semangat oleh penyanyi nyentrik asal Islandia, Björk Guðmundsdóttir, yang baru-baru ini datang ke Jakarta. Untuk info saja, Jakarta adalah satu-satunya tempat yang Ia singgahi di Asia Tenggara selama The <Volta> Tour.

Lagu “Declare Independence” ini dinyanyikan sebagai lagu penutup konsernya di Tennis Indoor Senayan, pada tanggal 12 Februari 2008 silam.

Entah Björk menyihir penggemarnya, atau memang rasa nasionalisme warga negara Indonesia sudah semakin meningkat. Pada penggalan, “Raise your flag! Higher, higher!”, dua orang penonton Indonesia yang berdiri di front row, tepat di depan mic stand sang penyanyi, membentangkan bendera merah putih yang disambut secara histerik oleh penonton lainnya.

Sebuah aksi langka di mata Björk, dan tentu saja menjadi suatu bukti bahwa nasionalisme belum mati!

Declare independence!

Do you think I’ll win KLA someday? Hahaha. Well, I’m too dumb to win, to be honest

Ah yes, where have I been? Hmmm, I was ill for – like – a week. I was at home for 8-9 days, and it sucks a lot! The general practitioner diagnosed that I had a typhoid fever (typhus) but seems like it was only verda typhus (gejala tipus). I had three bloodchecks in a week, the two last were on Sunday midnight and Monday night. Dammit.

That’s why I haven’t posted for days… I had to rest

But now I’m on the recovery phase! I’ll write again soon! Yay! \\(^o^) //
