Vert’s to-go

No one’s ever ready,

For a blast of the unsteady,

The world’s twisted as it is,

Add a little slant and it’s easy to miss.

Head’s heavy on the spine,

Lean back on this chair of mine,

Like a never-ending lifeline,

Meds after meds like fine wine.

Day by day, Vert interrupts conversations,

Want more action, but please take away the motion,

Has anyone ever noticed tables are low?

Please, please talk slow.

Your words spin my head,

The visions stop when I finally rest in bed.


Fixing Mona Lisa

Well, the challenge was to fix or change Mona Lisa according to how you envision it to be.

Modern Lisa

I rushed to finish this as I saw the contest at the last minute. Thought hard about whether or not to participate since I had to juggle this with work but what the heck, here we go. Say hi to Modern Lisa, she’s bored with perpetual posing for someone to paint her. “Get on with it” is also a note to self to hurry up to finish this. Photo frame is taken by me using my trusty old Fujifilm camera.

The Pop and Indie

They were pleasing to listen to,
Everywhere they went, the crowd grew,
Misunderstood Indie, what did you know?
The beat of your music was unknown to the common joe.

Lyrics after lyrics, they turned against you,
The blame on you, the fool,
Sang the Pop and cracked your chime,
Graced them with frivolous time,
You? Not a single dime.

What to do? What fools knew?
‘Twas alright, you held the clue.



The Batman Review (Without Story Spoilers)

After all the hype, I finally get to watch The Batman starring Robert Pattinson and Zoe Kravitz. It was nearly three hours long (Gosh, what’s with movies nowadays being this long?! Were they that bored during the pandemic?)

A shout out to Colin Farrell’s makeup artist. It was superb! I could not recognise him at all.

Anyway, let’s get down to the deets:

Sounds:
[] Mute it
[] Annoying but can live with it
[✔] Adding to my playlist (it has an indie vibe to it)
[] Smash the repeat button!

Plot:
[] What plot?
[] Nothing special but enjoyable
[✔] Good table talk (There were punny moments and subtle aha! touches. But some scenes were too draggy.)
[] Mind-blown Inception style

Graphics:
[] Eyesore
[] Not bad
[✔] Good (Effective cinematography styles were utilised to bring out the mysteriousness of the film. A tad too dark at times.)
[] Eye-candy

Acting:
Zoe Kravitz, Paul Dano and Robert Pattinson are good at acting with Paul Dano standing out the most. Given the character’s colourful background, it is understandable that he can portray more, but the main leads did a fine job too. However, while I feel Zoe has the street Catwoman vibe, her acting does not top Anne Hathaway’s version. Anne pulls off the Catwoman’s character very well in specific memorable scenes. For example, this part when she screams and pretends – a total Catwoman thing to do:

Fun:
[] Fell asleep
[✔] Kill time
[] I paid attention
[] What a roller coaster!

In The Batman, the pacing of the romance between Bat and Cat felt unnatural. Overall, I prefer Christopher Nolan’s movies, but we’ll give Matt Reeves’s version time to build.

Verdict: 3/5


Blogdle

If you enjoy blogging, chances are you’ll enjoy this word game that has taken us by storm!

Yes, you probably guessed it, Wordle!

Wordle by Wardle


Originated from a Wales developer, Wardle, it is now bought over by the New York Times (hence the US spelling).

You’ll need to guess a 5-letter word in six tries.

Too simple for you? Try this version: Quordle. It’s four times the difficulty with four games at a go! You have nine tries for this one.

Still too easy? Then try this 11-letter version.

In the meantime, you can also improve your geography with this version: Worldle.

Bonus: Here’s a Harry Potter version!

Have fun!

Das Bip

Hey guys! Happy new year! It’s been a while since I’ve drawn something, so here’s a new drawing that’s sketched in my style – a little abstract, loose and fun! 🙂

For the drawing process, you can check it out on my website.

Be prepared to see more of this style! Teehee!


It’s You

Through the slums of decadence,

You found me and shared the inheritance,

Granting your eternal strength when I was weak,

I thought I had it all at my peak,

Turned out I had naught when you revealed,

Stabs of treachery and scars you healed,

Thank you for the love you gave me,

Restoring my faith so I can see,

My world may not be a better place,

But know that I can seek solace in your saving grace.
