Pardon the title, tags, and the meme above.
Spent about 65% of my internet credits to surf around Tumblr and Youtube just to see and hear that guy everyday (well, people, meet Mr. Alex Turner, a Sex God from that Arctic Monkey band). Like, you know, I can finally feel the beauty of being single and chasing a guy this perfect again :’)
Well, it’s not just this Alex, actually. I am, too, still craving for Alex Trimble (Two Door Cinema Club’s frontman) and Alex Kapranos (Franz Ferdinand’s frontman) . But Trimble seems a bit too rascal since last year (he added a ring on his nose) and Kapranos is 42 y.o. this year, even older than the oldest somebody-i-used-to-know, so that Alex you saw in the picture above seems the only Alex I can lean my hopes to.
And again, it’s not just those Alexes. White guys seems to be more appealing to me these past 3 weeks or something. Internet introduced me to someone named Danny. I won’t tell his last name because if I do you’ll easily recognize the website where I met him. But I have to say that I really want to write something about him but I can’t because it’ll make this blog unsuitable even for PG-13 rating (now you may have an idea where exactly I met this Danny guy). A clue:
Such a brief clue, I may add.
This summer I am working on something I can’t tell here (but I wrote about it on my other blog, if you can find it somewhere) (I am only writing this as a reminder for that upcoming future-me) and hoping that everything goes smoothly as I hope it would be. This thing will be finished on late September and after that I perhaps can give a sneak peek of what is it about.
Talking about academic matters, my grades are fine this semester. No “C” at all! Woohoo! One new accomplishment achieved. Have the chance to take another semester with 24 credits all in my hand but I should think about it twice (even thrice) considering some organizational issues and deskjobs I haven’t finished working on yet (blaaaaaaaahhh!). But you know, I’m just gonna lay back and relax for another week before get back to Semarang again.
Dumbbells also became one of my best friends this summer holiday (which will only lasts for maybe a month, as usual.. haha). And because training these biceps and triceps regularly costs a lot of motivation, I made a workout playlist which turns out not only played when I am working out but basically every single time I turn my laptop on. Here’s the list:
PRISMA’s SUMMER 2014 WORKOUT PLAYLIST

Total length is 62 minutes. My current favorite is The Last Shadow Puppet’s Black Plant. Never realized before that this song is (IMO) much more stronger than the others. But if you asks about all-time favorite, there’s only one answer: Arctic Monkeys’ Knee Socks. That’s the song which brings me into loving mob movies (because the bridge lyric involves “…like the beginning of Mean Streets, you could be my baby…”) and then I found out what Mean Street is, started searching for movies with the same theme, and voila:
Those are just the favorite ones. Harvey Keitel is still unbearably very gorgeous on Mean Street, I can barely recognize him when he played as Mr. White on Reservoir Dogs. And I can’t tell how good it is to watch Robert De Niro growing up on those classic movies, from Mean Street, Taxi Driver, The Untouchables, Goodfellas, up to Casino. Love them so (:
I also watched B/W movie called “A Streetcar Named Desire” from 1951 just because the Godfather, our beloved Marlon Brando, is the main cast. He’s so young and lovely there and since then I can understand why Brando is named as one of the pioneer of today’s act style (realism, is it?) and brought the infamous melodramatic style Vivien Leigh did sunk under the sea.
That’s that. Too many things I want to tell (new shoes, new watch, new backpack, new eyeglasses, new Maybelline products, new other stuffs…) but can’t do that now and here so maybe on the upcoming posts. About to dye my hair too seconds after I reach Semarang, with Seth Rollins as the inspiration, and change my attitudes as new freshmen are coming to the blue campus. Fraaah! Time goes so fast when you’re on an awwwesome holiday, right? Well then, enjoy it while it lasts, lads! Love. xx
