as one of the writer for Malaysia, the next chapter, its sickening to hear, just goes on and on about their own country, guess these people never seen or experience hardship that other country had. we are lucky that we live in peace and harmony. look at georgia, where there is war with russia, look at Zimbabwe, with Mugabe being an ass, and doesn't want to resign, and their inflation rate is almost 200 %. why cant we all be just fucking gretful that we have food, and can walk around without worry of getting shot, or mortar targetting the shopping mall, instead a lil price increase, we start to complain and whine. the lack of unity, is sad to see and hear. when thing goes well, nobody gonna say " hey, this is a great country we live in" only when thing goes bad, people will start to critize. well its easy to critics, and find hole to poke in. but take a look around and to the bigger pics, its the world's economy that is suffering as well, not only ours.
and often we compare with the developed country, like US, or Australia. but do we take in consideration how long already they have gain their independent? why cant we be just proud of our acheivement so far in our 50 plus years of indepenedence?
teens today, well, its a bit fuck up on how they think.if i would giving a chance to create a case on this, don't think they could have lots of rebuttle. anyways, in the modern world of globalisation, we often see, how advance other countries are, and again, we whine and whine, really, sad, have we forgetten how our fore-father fight for this country? they sacrifice everything, regardless your are chinese, malay or indian, or any minorities just so that our generation won't suffer the same fate as them, for example like during the japanese occupancy. do we think about that? No. without that, well, our parents wont even have the chance to climb the coperate leader or to expend their business that would provide us the cash for us to spend on our so called nessasity for example like alcohol, clubs, handphones, and what ever. shame, shame on you wankers.
before start to work, oh well, i have to finish the group assignment on microcontroller first... guess it will take more time for me to get more juice for the work, the newly popular song by cold play, "viva la vida" have its own meaning:
is a very literal interpretational ballad of Napoleon in the moments before his death in exile. I believe it is on Napoleon because of the Heavy French Classical influence coursing through the song as well as the Album cover, being a French Revolutionary Painting. Who else in France had a shot at ruling the world?
The first three verses are where he recounts his former glory ("Old king is dead, long live the king") when he was going to rule the world, and how he held such power over his enemy. ("I used to rule the world/ Roll the dice") And then he tells of his downfall, when he sees that he cannot rule the world, and how he has become the lowest.("Now in the morning/ sweep the streets I used to own/ the walls were closed on me") Sweeping is a nobody job, so He is saying that he is now a nobody.
The chorus, which varies progressively, is a realization that he sees his own death. (Bells and Choirs would ring and sing, respectively, during a Funeral Procession, in some cases) "Mirror Sword and Shield" could mean that he is awaiting heaven, since the three are very Christian symbols. "Missionaries" is another Christian allusion, but appears to be useless, unless referring to that he is asking that a room in Heaven be prepared for him. "For Some Reason I can't explain, once you go..." appears to be a filler line, since it takes a different meaning later on. "That was when I ruled the world" is just a reprising line that sounds good. It restates that he no longer is glorious, and will die soon.
All the way from "Wicked and Wild wind" to "Oh who would ever want to be king" is a remembrance of his own rise to power and use of it. Also, because the French would Execute using the Guillotine, the "head on a silver plate" line also is an Allusion to Napoleonic France, as well as John the Baptist's death.
The second Chorus is the same, save for the line, "I know saint peter won't call my name". this is Napoleon saying he won't go to heaven since he was a tyrant. Saint Peter calling a name is symbolic of dying and going to Heaven.
There is an instrumental bridge where I suppose you could say Napoleon realizes death is inevitable, and accepts it, while the music becomes stronger.
The final Chorus has the change of "I know Saint peter won't call my name" to "I know Saint Peter WILL call my name" Saying that Napoleon accepts his death. You can imagine Napoleon Closing his eyes at the words "When I ruled the world"
The song ends with a choir singing the main chords in harmony, in a sad, thoughtful fadeout, suggesting Napoleon is dead.
business stetergy game, which have a real time lesson.
