This post is just a friendly teaser. I just returned from a 4-hour interview with the CEO of Odex, the alleged bad guys in the whole downloader arrest saga. Through the interview, he answered many of the questions I asked, dispelled many myths floating about, explained the MO and rationale behind the letters, shared his vision for the future, and predicted the industry trends internationally. Quite a mouthful that was.

I shall be dividing the content into a few posts. Tentatively, these will be classified according to:

  1. Impact of Fansubs on the Industry
  2. History of Odex and AVPAS

Update Update! Hit in the USA!

Wondered why Riuva had no updates for 4 days? That’s cos I had no internet. And why? Because I’m now currently in the GOD’s COUNTRY of America!! San Diego, to be precise, which is full of yellow people just like back in Singapore. Travelling across the Pacific to see yellow people pretending to be white people is my mum’s idea of a vacation. Hell, we see that in Singapore everyday.

But anyway, was at the world-renowned San Diego Zoo yesterday and it was quite impressive. The animals are of quite a different variety to that of the Singapore Zoo. Both these establishments are ranked among the top 3 in the world I think. Tomorrow we go to Universal Studios, to see some real white men. I wonder if the rumours are true that white men walk on all fours and drink rainwater….

OMFG… I’m… an ADULT NOW!!

I’m now officially legal to vote and marry without parental consent.

Anyway, this officially marks the beginning of the 2nd most serious phase of one’s life, where he becomes a full-fledged adult. The most serious phase is of course, when we are watching episodes of Planetes, Last Exile, Gatekeepers and Ghost in the Shell.

Perhaps it would be healthy to draw up some resolutions for adulthood… so here we go.

Update! Slowing Down for Some Major Transformation

Some of you may be wondering why I’ve abandoned my old rule of "one post a day keeps Satan away". Nowadays, I seem to be having an update every two days, with pretty scanty content.

Why? Because I reach home at 11.30 pm every night. And I haven’t watched anything besides Code Geass 13 (WHICH WAS MOTHER FUCKING SNAKES GOOD BTW) for at least 4 days. As for why I reach home late, it’s a combination of work and other commitments. Not to worry, for normal service will resume probably next week.

Call me Mister! I Have My Life Back!

Or in the native tongue, "ORD LOHHHHHHHHHHH!!!"

Today marks my official retirement from the army. I am now a free man! For those not from this island, all Singapore males must serve for a period of two years in National Service upon the age of 18. On the day of enlistment, the king confiscates your identity card (it’s pink, and affectionately called the PINK IC) and hands you a green military identity card called the 11B. And on the final day of NS, your pink IC is returned to you, having been safely locked away for two years.




Which is your boy/girlfriend?
