The Crusaders

Hi everyone !
in this post, I just want to share a group band that I listen a lot nowadays..The Crusaders

The Crusaders are an American music group popular in the early 1970s for their jazz, pop and soul sound.

Got their album when i was searching for some old music, with a mix of funk and soul.From 1961 to present more than forty albums have been credited to the group (some live and compilations), 19 of which were recorded under the name “The Jazz Crusaders” (1961-1970).

this is one of their song..enjoy ! :)

time travelers got caught on camera!

well..actually i don't know if this picture was true or not. We always wondering about time travel. Maybe it's exciting if we can travel around time forward and backward. You can believe this or not but here is the list of the three most recent puppies you can call pieces of evidence for time travel or you cannot.

1. Printed T-shirt, Sun Shades and Multi Zoom Camera in 1940

This photo is officially available at one of Canadian museum's website. It features a scene from the re-opening of a freshly reconstructed bridge, back in 1940. I think you can easily find on this photo someone who looks like to be not a very good fit for 1940s, wearing a printed T-shirt which got patented and went in mass production not earlier than 1960s, eyeshades that just appeared at that time, but didn't get that form factor yet and holding something that appears to be a camera with lens that were not introduced earlier than late 1950s. And also he is taller than anyone else there. What's that - a coincidence? Look closely once again

2. A PDA, Laptop, and Cell Phone Over 70 Years Ago

Second one comes from Russia. They have beautiful subway stations in big cities like Moscow that were previously build by communist leaders' personal orders and were thought to become pieces of artwork to awe the tourists and simple Soviet people who came to Moscow from smaller Russian towns. People say that they really hold their breath when found themselves for the first time inside a Moscow metro. And on one of the stations there is something that can get to hold your air even nowadays. This large mosaic panel features some scene from early Communist age of Soviet Empire, it stays there untouched already for 70 years, since early 1930s and look what they've got there!

look closely once again

Someone holding something looking like a touchscreen PDA with a bigger laptop ahead of him talking on cell phone?

3. An Astronaut in 1700

If you still can say I didn't get you think those two above can be for real and rather just some pure coincidence, bad angle and wild imagination result, then I've got one real smoking gun for ya. Look at this one, please. Found on one of the pillars of Salamanca Cathedral, a church that was started in 16th century and completed in later 18th century, way before the glorious age of modern day space exploration era. Some might say it was added later or a result of a bad joke, but listen, is that really easy to add something to a cathedral that is being considered a historical relic and nobody is let to alter its look, especially with such unholy plot lines.

the bigger picture

it's up to you to believe it or not. This things amazed me.

Obrolan sana sini

Yang namanya sebuah pengalaman atau pelajaran baru memang bisa saja hadir dimana saja dan kapan saja.

Malam itu seperti biasa, saya mencari makanan disekitar komplek karena memang sedang malas untuk keluar lebih jauh. Setelah beberapa saat berputar-putar akhinya ada penjual sate yg memang sedang ada disitu. Ya akhirnya saya memesan sate untuk makan malam.

Sambil menunggu sate matang, kamipun ngobrol kesana kemari. Sampe akhirnya abang yg jual sate bilang "Mas, mahasiswa itu kok goblok-goblok ya?kok pikirannya kerja terus sama orang.." dari situ langsung dilanjut "..kok gak ada kepikiran mandiri?tiap lulus pengennya kerja di perusahaan,jadi pegawai atau yg lain.." setelah itu cak penjual sate bercerita bahwa dia dulu juga pernah kerja sama orang tapi dari situ dia cmn mengambil ilmunya saja. Dengan sedikit modal nekat akhirnya abang penjual sate tadi berani membuka sendiri usahanya dan diapun selalu berusaha bersyukur atas semuanya..

Itu tadi sedikit cerita saya dari penjual sate. Lain lagi ketika saya jogging pagi di stadion its. Hal yg biasa saya lakukan paling tidak 2-3 kali seminggu. Dimana saya banyak joging ditemani orang-orang yang sudah berumur (kemana anak mudanya??).

Setelah berputar-putar lintasan stadion, akhirnya saya pun istirahat. Karena masih ingin berada disana, maka saya pun berputar-putar dan akhirnya bertemu dengan salah seorang penjaga stadion yang baru saya lihat dan akhirnya kami ngobrol kesana kemari. Singkat cerita beliau mempunyai usaha berjualan apel tapi sedang ditinggalkanya dan akhirnya memilih untuk masuk menjadi pegawai di its karena menginginkan pendapatan yg stabil. Ada sedikit rasa kecewa kenapa usaha tersebut ditinggal tapi beliau berusaha untuk menjalankan usahanya lagi yang memang mempunyai profit lebih besar meskipun tidak stabil.

dari ngobrol ini saja paling tidak sudah memberikan pengalaman baru bagi saya. Seringkali memang kita terpaku untuk masuk ke perusahaan perusahaan besar dengan gaji yang lumayan dan boleh dibilang stabil. Tetapi pasti ada terlintas di pikiran kita untuk mempunyai usaha meskipun pada akhirnya hanya sebatas pemikiran saja. Dari obrolan tersebut saya merasa sedikit "tertampar" karena ketidakberanian saya dalam melakukan sesuatu. Kalau boleh dibilang kalah sama bapak-bapak yg saya ajak ngobrol diatas tadi. Paling tidak sebagai seseorang yang mengenyam pendidikan sedikit lebih tinggi harusnya lebih berani dalam melakukan sesuatu. Kita harus percaya bahwasanya kita bisa. Seperti kata-kata favorit di sebuah buku yang menjadi best seller
"Man Jadda Wa Jadda" yang artinya kurang lebih "barang siapa yang bersungguh-sungguh pasti akan mendapatkannya"

Kita pasti bisa kawan!

Amazing pictures by an autistic artist

Post again !! after a long time..

Stephen Wiltshire, who was diagnosed with autism at the age of three, memorised the appearance and position of hundreds of London’s buildings in exact scale during a helicopter ride along the Thames.

This is his picture :

He did not refer to notes, preliminary sketches or photographs and his drawing includes the precise number of skyscraper floors.

Mr Wiltshire, who was set the challenge by Channel Five for its documentary, Extraordinary People: The Human Camera, said he was ‘thrilled’ with the result.

The artist, who received an MBE for his services to art in 2006, has a gallery in Pall Mall.

The challenge marks another chapter in his remarkable life, 30 years after being diagnosed as autistic.

As a child, he was unable to speak and threw tantrums in frustration at not being able to make himself understood.

His family say that the only thing that seemed to comfort him was being given a pencil and paper.

Aged six, he shocked a family friend by drawing an accurate sketch of the facade of the department store Selfridges in a style well beyond his years.

At eight he sold his first drawing, of Salisbury Cathedral, which motivated him to communicate with others and gave him the ability to lead an independent life.

Another picture from him :

A great work from a great man..
