Reality TV is Back

September 29th, 2007 Comments(2)

Wow. Tyra Banks managed to cast some of the fugliest girls for this season's America's Next Top Model, each with their own issues ranging from autism to rape to some weird case of "I'm so happy, I celebrate the growth of my nails!". She should learn a thing or two from Hedi Klum, who casts gorgeous girls for Germany's Next Top Model, instead of bitches who like creating drama. Even Beauty and the Geek girls pwn ANTM girls with their looks and that's kinda wrong.

Let's take a look at how ANTM girls compare with BATG girls, shall we?

My First Facial

September 28th, 2007 Comments(0)

I dragged Melissa to Skin Revival for a facial today, after hearing all the rave reviews about them. One thing that really amazed me was how they seemed genuinely concerned about your skin, unlike certain facial salons where they only point out your flaws so they can sell you something. And everyone who works there has gorgeous skin.

Some More Retouched Photos

Here are some more of the photos I retouched. Figured I may as well put them up since I've done them. Mouseover for originals. Steal my retouched photos and you're good as dead. :D

... In a bowl with boiled water.

Because Stanley didn't know what I was talking about. :P

TFS Liquid Eyeliner

September 25th, 2007 Comments(6)

People apparently enjoy reading my vainpot entries. So here goes.

I bought the Easy Brush Eyeliner at The Face Shop for $18.90 (original price $19.90), thanks to the membership card Melissa gave me. It gives the precision and dramatic emphasis on the eyes that liquid liners provide, yet offers the steady grip of a pencil liner. Is it good? Probably. I have no idea. I'm still completely retarded at lining my upper lids, and I still can't get it right.

*Sighs*

WordPress 2.3

It's here! And I've upgraded. Nothing particularly exciting though. But all my plugins still work. (I think.) Will try out the tags system when I have time.

I don't have enough desk space. :(

10 Fabulous Freeware

September 20th, 2007 Comments(0)

  • Maxthon
    Maxthon definitely pwns Mozilla Firefox if you're a power-user, nevermind that it still uses the Trident engine. I heard Gecko support is on the way! Some of the features I love are configurable mouse gestures, URL aliases, the ability to save multiple tabs into groups, the amazing Ad Hunter, and oh, Magic Fill is a godsend! Firefox can only achieve 3/4 of what Maxthon does and that's when it's plugin'ed to death.
  • Foxit Reader
    Contrary to the popular belief, Foxit Reader is not simply a Firefox plugin. It's a standalone programme that'll make you throw away Adobe Acrobat Reader pronto. I used to hate .pdf files because loading Acrobat Reader takes up so much time and resources. But Foxit loads .pdf files really fast, and it takes up waaaay less space than the aforementioned lousy piece of crap.
  • EssentialPIM
    A powerful organiser software with loads of great features. I needed something to allow me to schedule classes, appointments, and deadlines, and this is more than I hoped for. I'm so amazed that this is free. It works so much better than Mozilla Sunbird, which is bloated and laggy.
  • iTunesKeys
    When I switched to iTunes from WinAmp, I thought the global hotkeys feature was lost to me forever. This programme allows you to set global hotkeys so that you can simply press Ctrl + Pg Dn, for example, to skip to the next song, etc. Yayness!
  • EditPad Lite
    Lightweight text editor that has an awesome tabs feature and a superb search and replace engine. I use this to code all my HTML and other stuff.
  • Mozilla Thunderbird
    I'm not really sure how this compares with other e-mail software since I've been using it forever, but I love how it learns to recognise spam.
  • GreatNews
    I've tried a fair number of RSS aggregators and I find that GreatNews is just what I'm looking for. It displays the full content of each and every blog I frequent, and it's not anal about coding errors. And that's the most important thing. Who cares if the RSS reader is fuqn standards-compliant? I want to be able to read the blogs I frequent, error or not. (Geez, snobbish geeks who think they're l33t.)
  • MPTrim
    I loathe how I'm sometimes playing one MP3 and I have to turn up the volume, and when it skips to the next song, I get my eardrums blasted to death. This programme lets you adjust the your MP3's volumes to make them more uniform.
  • VLC Media Player
    It plays almost every video format out there. 'Nuff said.
  • Convert
    A unit conversion programme that converts nearly every unit of measurement in existence.

Do You Think I'm Heartless?

September 19th, 2007 Comments(0)

I guess it's time for me to evaluate what kind of image I've been projecting. Apparently a few people have decided that I'm too heartless to care that someone I knew had passed away and deemed it fit to simply leave me out of the grapevine.
