First look at the very cool and funny 'LOS dan FAUN' cast. WHAT DOESN'T KILL ME, MAKES ME STRONGER!
Dudes, don't bother about the MAFAA thingy, it was an annoyance at the most. Gua pun acah aje! I guess it was a natural reaction to being threatened for a taurus... we tend to fight back!. For those of you who thought that i lost my cool in my last post and i am so melayu for retaliating - i got an update for you ... i am melayu and proud of it, and being human i guess i am allowed to lose my cool once in a while. But i consider it water under the toilet now. hehe.
I actually would like to thank Mafaa for bringing up the issue because it has always been a secret ambition of mine to appear on the front cover of any national newspaper!
and now...I MADE IT. AFDLIN SHAUKI is on the FRONT PAGE of the MALAY MAIL BABY yeaaa!!! WOOOO!... FOUR DAYS IN A ROW!
I'm so glad i didn't have to rape, kill, maim, start a black magic money syndicate with the nigerians, contract birdflu, caught on camera sucking on a sisha bong, build an elevated highway with cracks on it, .... etc. to be able to be front page worthy.
Finally, i hit the big time.
Finally I AM LIKE ... MAWI, DIANA RAFAR, ZAMARUL HISHAM, SITI, DATUK K, ERRA, YUSRY...SAMY!
Actually my adverse reaction is targeted more to the annoying anonymous postings. But frakk it! What will be will be. They don't matter cause they don't exist.
Besides, there is something more important to talk about, which is, what the folks at radio, televisyen Malaysia are doing to YASMIN AHMAD, in a talkshow Yesterday night (hosted by Malaysia's number one hero) which basically criticized Yasmin's films are morally bad and unethical. What the fish head curry is this? Why is it that everytime a melayu person does anything good for his/her industry and the country, he / she always gets crucified and there is always another group of people wanting to pull her down. Kenapa macam ni beb? Why are we not a people who would say praise and give encouragement rather than condemn. It truly pisses me off that we live in a society hat believes to get on top we have to pull people down and step on them rather than to work our way to somehow stand tall together with the victorious one day.
As you know, i welcome discussion and i believe that a good discussion will result eventually in some form of intellectual growth for all parties involved insya'allah but what transpired on tv yesterday on Fenomena Seni was more akin to a witch hunt rather than a proper discussion. The panelist include two people who have outwardly and publicly expressed their hate for SEPET and En. Hassan Mutalib appeared like he was going with what the popular view was rather than what he believed in. His comments, were spineless at best. I believe that someone has an agenda and it is not an honorable one toward Yasmin. She had no chance, even if they allowed her to give her opinions (which they didn't).
My personal opinion of The discussion is that, they were views from the narrowminded small people in the industry who are fixed in their ways and are afraid of change. The people who think the job of cinema is pure escapism. The people who do not understand the use of subtext in film. (subtext =what is said, and the action we see in the picture carry two very different meanings.) . I learn a lot from watching Yasmin's work and attention to detail and hope to one day be able to make movies which cuts thru all the BS and straight away raises the issues that we always try and avoid dealing with in our society.
Share with me your views on this gang!
Power to the people
Oh and thanks for your honesty AFIQ, insya allah i am always striving to do better work everytime i am blessed with the opportunity to do so. So don't give up on me yet bro.
