Ulasan: MEGADETH Capitol Punishments CD


MEGADETH Capitol Punishment CD. Album kompilasi tapi ada beberapa keistimewaannya. Lagu eksklusif-untuk-kompilasi-ini, Kill the King. Lagu Dread and the Fugitive Mind sebelum ia dimasukkan ke dalam album seterusnya The World Needs a Hero. Dan lagu "tersembunyi" Capitol Punishment, iaitu lagu medley lagu-lagu Megadeth pada track 14 selepas lagu Peace Sells.  

Nampak sangat kompilasi ini dibuat dengan sambil lewa dengan hanya 14 buah lagu. Kurang-kurang mau double-CD. Tapi kita faham dengan pe'el syarikat rakaman, selagi boleh rilis, mereka akan rilis. Kita juga faham pe'el peminat tegar, selagi ada rilis, mereka akan beli. Win-win situation ke win-lose situation? Tak kisahlah, kerana strategi letak satu lagu non-album Kill The King ini sudah cukup membuatkan peminat tegar dan semi-tegar menyambarnya. Selain itu saya menyukai artwork album ini.

Juga perasan tak tajuknya Capitol Punishment? Capitol tu label Megadeth yang memaksa Megadeth merilis kompilasi ini hahaha... Bab troll ni, saya rasa Abang Mus adalah pelopor sebelum ada internet lagi. Sejarah beliau troll orang lain (terutama Metallica) telah dilakukan seawal tahun 1983-84, setelah beliau kena tendang atas sebab penyalahgunaan (?) alkohol dan kelakuan (?) ganas.

Open Idea Competition (OIC)

As one of the education member in Malaysian Structural Steel Association (MSSA), I supervised groups of students from UTP and UiTM in the Open Idea Competition (OIC). It is opened only to institutions who have MoU with MSSA.

In 2012, we won a consolation prize which is quite a huge thing to us for one reason, which was the group was a collaboration between two institutions.

Recently, it is getting harder to supervise but I am thinking of doing this again for next year. The prize is getting bigger year by year. Of course, all the prize money will go to the students but watching these students collaborate was exciting enough.

MSSA has kind enough to published the 2012 and 2013 competition as a coffee table book. And I am proud enough to have my name published together.

Vancouver Trip August 2014: KLIA - Hong Kong - Vancouver

On 20-22th of August, I attended the 7th international Conference on Fiber Reinforced Polymer (FRP) Composites in Civil Engineering (CICE 2014) in Vancouver, Canada. For the next few entries, I will be covering the trip.

First, the flight.

I used Cathay Pacific. No preference. I just let the travel agent do the ticket booking for me. Although I prefer MAS but I believe, MAS does not serve the route.

The flight was on the 18th from KLIA. Made a transit stop at Hong Kong before Vancouver.

As per UTP policy, any flights of 8 hours or more, the staff will enjoy business class.

That was the distance from KLIA to Hong Kong.


Two hours transit at Hong Kong airport. Lovely view as the airport is surrounded by water, and hills.

Everything was awesome!

Ready to Vancouver - 11 hours flight!

Phew!

This was like 30 minutes before landing.
We (myself and a colleague who will be presenting papers) checked at the venue's lodging facility which was at the University of British Columbia. We noticed that most of the cab drivers were asian. Example as you can see here. Weather was nice.

Wordless Wednesday: AROD and Studio

Notice that it was never a "wordless Wednesday" in this blog, rather, I wrote in photo-caption. Anyway, bought an AROD floor lamp for my hifi setup. RM199 at IKEA. Lighting has a significant effect to the listening experience. Try it with your setup. BTW, my kids already name this area as a "studio". Some spoken words, "Tonight, I wanna sleep in Bapak's studio", or to that effect. Once asleep (while listening to the 70s prog rock that I think soothe them to slumber), I quickly shove them to bed and take charge the area once conquered.
