Dandioy's Video | Timelapse drawing #1



Some people thought that I can only draw cartoons, but I can actually draw anime and real people portraits too!

By the way, I have always thought that purple and orange is such a great colour combination. Contrasting, striking and attention-catching yet not too pretentious. 

Enjoy the video and you can request any kind of timelapse drawing from me :)

1995

I was curious about my birth year, which is 1995. So I googled it up and this website, http://whathappenedinmybirthyear.com/, popped out.

So here it goes...

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

In 1995, the world was a different place.

There was no Google yet.


In 1995, the year of your birth, the top selling movie was Toy Story. People buying the popcorn in the cinema lobby had glazing eyes when looking at the poster.

People were indeed watching movies in the cinema, and not downloading them online. Imagine the packed seats, the laughter, the excitement, the novelty.

(my favourite animation movie is born in the same year of my birth :O)

Do you know who won the Oscars that year? The academy award for the best movie went to Braveheart. The Oscar for best foreign movie that year went to Antonia's Line. The top actor was Nicolas Cage for his role as Ben Sanderson in Leaving Las Vegas. The top actress was Susan Sarandon for her role as Helen Prejean in Dead Man Walking. The best director? Mel Gibson for Braveheart.

In the year 1995, the time when you arrived on this planet, books were still popularly read on paper, not on digital devices. Trees were felled to get the word out. The number one US bestseller of the time was The Rainmaker by John Grisham. Oh, that's many years ago. Have you read that book? 

Have you heard of it? Look at the cover!

In 1995... The World Trade Organization, WTO, is established to replace the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade, GATT. The Draupner wave in the North Sea in Norway is detected, confirming the existence of freak waves. Valeri Polyakov completes 366 days in space while aboard the Mir space station, breaking a duration record. U.S. President Bill Clinton invokes emergency powers, to extend a $20 billion loan to help Mexico avert financial collapse Members of the group Patriot's Council are convicted in Minnesota of manufacturing ricin. The 67th Academy Awards take place in Los Angeles, hosted by David Letterman. Jacques Chirac is elected president of France. Japanese police besiege the headquarters of Aum Shinrikyo near Mount Fuji and arrest cult leader Shoko Asahara. South Africa wins the Rugby World Cup. Dozens of US cities, most notably Chicago and Milwaukee, set all-time record high temperatures. Microsoft releases Windows 95. O.J. Simpson is found not guilty of double murder for the deaths of former wife Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman. NASA loses contact with the Pioneer 11 probe. Hacker Kevin Mitnick is arrested by the FBI and charged with breaking into some of the United States' most "secure" computer systems. The final original Calvin and Hobbes comic strip is published. The US National Highway Designation Act ends the federal 55 mph speed limit. The video game of the day was Warcraft II.

That was the world you were born into. Since then, you and others have changed it.

The Nobel prize for Literature that year went to Seamus Heaney. The Nobel Peace prize went to Joseph Rotblat. The Nobel prize for physics went to Martin Lewis Perl from the United States for the discovery of the tau lepton and for pioneering experimental contributions to lepton physics. The sensation this created was big. But it didn't stop the planets from spinning, on and on, year by year. Years in which you would grow bigger, older, smarter, and, if you were lucky, sometimes wiser. Years in which you also lost some things. Possessions got misplaced. Memories faded. Friends parted ways. The best friends, you tried to hold on. This is what counts in life, isn't it?

The 1990s were indeed a special decade. The Nineties saw the beginnings of the World Wide Web, originating at CERN. Email becomes popular. The Soviet Union dissolved. Living standards in East Asia and Europe generally improved. The Cold War ends. Iraqi forces invade Kuwait. A UN coalition force led by the US was sent to the Persian Gulf, and aerial bombing of Iraq began. The Kosovo War took place. The Ethiopian Civil War ends. Dolly, a sheep, is cloned. The Global Positioning System GPS becomes fully operational. Genetically engineered crops are developed for commercial use. Intel develops the Pentium processor. The Java programming language is created. Microsoft released Windows 95. In Los Angeles, riots occur after the police brutality case involving Rodney King. Great Britain hands sovereignty of Hong Kong to China. East Timor breaks away from Indonesian control. US president Bill Clinton was involved in the Lewinsky scandal. Dogme 95 becomes an important artistic movement in European film. Teen soap Beverly Hills 90210 has its long run. Baywatch becomes the most watched show in history. On MTV, reality television makes its beginning. Nelson Mandela is elected president of South Africa. Germany was reunified. The prediction of computer bug Y2K spreads fear.


Do you know what was on the cover of Life that year?

6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1... it's 1995. There's TV noise coming from the second floor. Someone turned up the volume way too high. The sun is burning from above. These were different times. The show playing on TV is NewsRadio. The sun goes down. Someone switches channels. There's In The House on now. That's the world you were born in.

Progress, year after year. Do you wonder where the world is heading towards?

1995 was the year
I came up for trial
I listened to his song
And watched the sun
Make the shadows long
...

That's from the song Tomb Of Liegia by Team Sleep.

In 1995, a new character entered the world of comic books: X-Man. Bang! Boom! But that's just fiction, right? In the real world, in 1995,Taylor Atelian was born. And Sterling Beaumon. Malin Reitan, too. And you, of course. Everyone an individual. Everyone special. Everyone taking a different path through life. 
It's 2015.

The world is a different place.

What path have you taken?

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I have no idea why but after reading all these, I felt so emotional. I'm 20 years old now. I'm born in a generation of the world wide web. Why am I existing? What is my existential value? What can I contribute to the world? Can I change the world? 

It also make me realised that every single one of us is taking different paths in life; some might be into science researches, some might be into arts, music or managements. There's really no point comparing our lives to others.

Time flew. Time flies. Time is flying by so fast.

How long is my journey on earth? What can I do to make my days count?
So many questions to ponder. So many things to do, yet so little time...

身为INFJ女孩

INFJ占据世界人口百分之一,是众多16种个性的稀少物种。去年测到自己是INFJ,终于明白为什么自己总是格格不入。



其实我从小就知道我是个内向的女孩,有的时候我觉得自己很像《红楼梦》里面的林黛玉忧愁善感(动不动就泪崩葬花)。我曾经还一度的怀疑自己为什么自己总是不能像别人一样活泼开朗当别人的开心果。有派对聚会游街我一律不想参与,就连与朋友讯息也不想;偶尔有一通电话打来我还会紧张得颤抖因为我会被手机的铃声吓到。

极度内向就算了,我还是一个不善言辞的女孩。脑袋里说想的东西说出来也只有仅仅的10%。我还是一个极度眼浅的女生,看到伤感的电影会陪着男女主角哭,看到开心的部分会大笑,情绪起伏很大。我是个对情感有洁癖的动物,对爱情友情都是秉持着宁缺毋滥的态度,所以我的朋友不多。



INFJ女孩喜欢文字、爱好一切文艺的事物。我觉得真的很准确,因为觉得没有人能够了解我,我从小学就喜欢写文章、喜欢想故事、幻想故事人物的感情羁绊。我还因为这样有了“少根筋”的外号,活脱脱衬托了我傻大姐的性格。然而我的傻中带着灰色的阴霾和拘谨,或许就是因为这样很少人敢主动接近我吧。

INFJ女生也不想对任何事物都产生焦虑的情绪,她们也想简简单单,但千万不要叫她们不要overthink,这几乎就是一件不可能的事情。

但,因为我们的真心朋友极度稀少,我们对待人也比较至情至深。

所以,在这里感谢愿意待在我生命中的朋友,也谢谢你们的effort,谢谢你们的包容与体谅。

Music | 弹钢琴唱歌的Cara Salimando // Novelette



我是在2010年在Youtube发现Cara Salimando的。她的声律和嗓声就像她所写的音乐那样特别。在她的歌声里,有梦幻的情丝,有忧郁的旋律,有活泼的律动,不是你typical的youtube singer。她虽然被唱片公司签下了还有自己的vevo channel 但是却迟迟不见她的音乐走红,让我觉得倍感可惜。好音乐就这样被埋没了吗?:(



Another Night,这是第一首让我认识到Cara Salimando的歌。好听的歌喉演绎的歌曲就是悦耳~还记得这首歌就是我在form 4当年的主题曲啊!


You Are 是属于比较活泼俏皮的歌,很适合一边跑步一边听的歌,听了心情很好呢!


Dust就是那种我会单曲循环10000遍也不会腻的歌。淡淡的忧愁,gloomy的MV色彩,擦肩而过的男女主角,还真的让15岁的我超级痴迷,不知道重播了几遍。到现在重新听一次,又有了新的感悟。

(You were just // another lullaby // candlelight eyes // singing her to sleep // singing her to sleep)



我还记得我在form 4 的时候不是很喜欢这首歌。奇怪的事,现在重新听一次我居然超爱!是不是随着年龄增长music taste也跟着改变了呢?


现在她有了自己的band,叫做Novelette。我觉得Novelette是个很漂亮的名字,虽然不同的名义,但同样好听的音乐。

Enjoy music, enjoy life! :)

I felt like I was a lot more extroverted in Sem 1 and I just kind of got more introverted later. :/

Music | 属于春天微风的暖声 Eddy Kim



比较mainstream的KPOP三大entertainment公司,大概就是就是YG,SM,还有JYP了。YG盛产比较hiphop,黑人街头嘻哈摇滚式的团,最经典的就是Bigbang还有2NE1了,走的是swag的路线。SM的艺人大都有以下的特点,那就是团员超级多(例子有:Super Junior,Girl's Generation,当然不能不提起现在红翻半边天的EXO)。JYP走的是比较diverse的路线,有2PM(专注在跳舞还有唱歌的男团),2AM(专注在唱歌的男团)还有甜美性感路线的Miss A。

看过了这么多盛产EDM为主的曲风,边唱歌边跳舞的团体,我开始觉得在韩国的演艺圈里单纯的唱歌,不跳舞,不走性感路线而且还是solo的歌手还能屹立不倒的才是真正的厉害啊

Mystic89 entertainment的Eddy Kim就是这样一个的例子。说他的歌声是那种疗愈系的根本就不为过。


让我认识到他的第一首歌曲 吉他配好声音配帅男就是我的菜 哈哈哈


每一首歌都有吉他的简单旋律



也有比较调皮的一面 呵呵

Acoustic音乐终究还是我的最爱嘿。听久了摇滚嘻哈的pop music,不妨听听看这样的genre,真的很沁人心脾呢!就像是吃惯了大鱼大肉山珍海味,才会发现简简单单的粗茶淡饭家常菜才是最好的。(呃 什么烂比喻)

总之,enjoy music enjoy life!

你值得更好的 You deserve someone better


虽然我是个感觉异常敏锐的INFJ,但对于我没兴趣知道的东西我还是真的神经非常大条。
所以知道这件事情的时候真的非常惊讶。事情是这样的。

知道其中的一位朋友好像要坠入爱河而且对象是一位我印象非常不好的男生,我就对她说不要陷下去,要及时抽离这段要开始又还没有开始的感情。通常任何人要做什么我都会尊重他,别人的恋情我也无权干涉。如果我真的干涉了那就证明了两件事情:第一、那个女生是一个我很珍惜的朋友,我不想她做一件她以后会后悔的事情,第二、那个男生的品格不好,不是一个值得当男朋友的人。刚好在这件事情上这两点都碰到了。

很多时候我发现对于别人的问题我总是能够非常容易的就做出判断。要么是,要么不是,绝对不会有所谓的灰色地带。不知道是不是我INFJ性格里面的J(Judging),我总是会在一个人的身上标上隐形的性格分数。通常我的直觉都是异常准确的,那个男生是个非常油滑,过度圆润的人,控制欲强,不是个非常好的listener(我本身不太想接近这种人),恋爱只是他用来填满他心灵空缺的手段罢了。

我是个有感情洁癖的人,所以我绝对不能接受人是为了谈恋爱而谈恋爱。如果不是绝对非常非常非常喜欢,那就不要开始扰乱别人的心绪和生活,到最后沦落到分手还要伤害别人的心和感情。你或许可以说我这个人太过于idealistic,但至少我会为我的生活减少很多无所谓的drama。宁缺毋滥,真的是我们都应该学习的一堂课。

女孩,如果你刚好看到这篇文章。请记得,你是个很善良很单纯很聪明很有灵气的女孩,你deserve better。你值得找到一个非常非常喜欢你的男生,喜欢到眼里只有你,喜欢到不会去facebook stalk别的女生,喜欢到会直接100%确定你们之间的感情,而不是拖拖拉拉的。

你可以选择ignore我的话,有可能我不是很清楚你们之间的事情,但到最后你做什么决定我都还会是支持你的。:)

最重要的是你的快乐 :)
