I curse the shit out of everything!

I curse the computer! I curse the hard disk! I lost the the entire Final Cut Pro project file of my film, ‘THE LIFE & TIMES OF AN ISLAMIC INSURGENCY‘! I curse Final Cut Pro! I curse my film! I have no other copies! I curse the copies! Who has a copy of my film? Give one back to me please! A file recovery software is now scanning my hard disk! I curse file recovery softwares! Oh no wait… let’s see if it can do the job first! If not, then I’ll curse it! If you’ve been following FATBIDIN.TV and are still waiting for the next episode… sorry! I curse FATBIDIN.TV! Does this mean I will have to re-edit my entire film? I curse re-editing! I curse the curses that I’m using to curse with!

Why can’t I come up with ideas like this? Bloody hell! Read my column at The Malaysian Insider today.

MAY 21 — We live in an anti-social world. We don’t interact with each other. We don’t go out and be part of our environment.

Ahh!! Today is a griping session! So… read my latest column at The Malaysian Insider.

How hard is it to go multimedia?
