All political theories assume, of course, that most individuals are very ignorant. Those who plead for liberty differ from the rest in that they include among the ignorant themselves as well as the wisest.

Respro Techno Mask

30th Mar 2008 - 11:07pm Product Reviews
I have to work in Bangalore for another month.  This time, I am well prepared.  Other than my month long supply of instant noodles, I also bought a Respro Techno Mask from Mountain Equipment Co-op.  The mask can filter out hydrocarbons, sulphur…

Eureka Seven 交響詩篇

29th Mar 2008 - 10:43pm 動漫
看「交響詩篇」的最大原因﹐是被譽為機設之神的河森正治。自從「超時空要塞」的變型戰機出道以來﹐他設計了無數的經典機體﹐從高達0080到艾斯卡科尼到創聖之大天使﹐每個設計也是創新兼獨一無異。這次在「交響詩篇」中的設計﹐超越以往所有機械人動畫的意念﹐是一臺在天空中踏著滑浪板滑浪的機械人。初聽到在天空滑浪這個慨念時﹐覺得有點兒無稽多些一舉﹐不過看罷第一集就已經認同這個別出心裁的設計。在這動畫的世界設定中﹐機械人是依靠特殊粒子波浪去漂浮飛行﹐在視覺效果上拖著長長發光的尾巴﹐就像是在天空中滑浪一樣。正如真正的滑浪會在海面留下痕跡﹐機械人劃破長空留下光痕特別悅目﹐令空中纏鬥場面好跳舞一樣好看。…

Blog about serious things

Someone asked me why don’t I blog about serious stuff, such as politics, social issues, lately.  I took a look at my recent entries in the past month.  Indeed I wrote a lot more about TV, movies, Anime than usual.  I guess my work at India…

破事兒

25th Mar 2008 - 06:32pm 電影
彭浩翔上次那套「出埃及記」拍藝術電影﹐結果成為他執導以來的最大污點﹐幾乎悶死了入場的歡眾。今次「破事兒」不扮高深﹐正經地搞笑不正經地說點道理﹐彭浩翔回複當日「買兇拍人」﹐「AV」的狀態﹐不愧為香港第一鬼才導演。「破事兒」結集七個短篇故事﹐其中有些改篇自他的舊小說﹐也有些故事是新創作。七個故事有長有短﹐長的有十數分鐘﹐短的不過兩三分鐘。每個故事演員不同﹐不是好戲的綠葉﹐便是當紅的明星。故事照舊走他最擅長少少鹹多多趣的風格﹐大玩性笑話卻樂而不淫。…

Old chinese songs in Youtube

Tonight I and Pat were searching for a song to sing in the wedding banquet.  We would like to pick a Chinese duo song with sweet meaning.  We searched the internet for songs sing by male and female singers together.  We come across a fairly big…

Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles 未來戰士﹕莎拉傳

22nd Mar 2008 - 08:33pm 電視
大隻佬阿諾辛華舒力加主演的「未來戰士」﹐相信是不少人心目中的經典電影系列。大隻佬一句I will be back﹐配合他的爛面機械人造型﹐堪稱上世紀荷里活最酷的標誌。現在大隻佬去了做州長﹐導演占士金馬倫又不肯拍續集﹐「未來戰士」枝葉四散大樹凋零﹐金漆招牌失去了昔日的光輝。畢竟爛船也有三斤釘﹐霍士電視台就是看中了撈底的機會﹐把「未來戰士」從大銀幕搬上小銀幕﹐看看能否讓這一代經典鹹魚翻生。…

愛鬥大

21st Mar 2008 - 03:44pm 電影
說數今年香港最有創意的電影﹐非這套由七條導演的「愛鬥大」莫屬了。說穿了導演七條並不是一個人﹐而是七條友共用的代號。由專拍鬼片彭氏兄弟的彭順領軍﹐帶領六位學生導演﹐合作拍攝一套另類青春喜劇。電影的演員全部是偶像新人﹐典型的俊男美女組合加騎呢怪綠葉。這套電影實驗味道很重﹐無無聊聊大顛大肺﹐大慨老一輩會說其不知所謂。不過我們看慣Youtube的這代人﹐倒看得大呼抵死好玩過癮。…

注定失敗的母語教學

19th Mar 2008 - 08:05pm 政治經濟
自回歸以後香港施行的母語教學﹐十年內學生的成績大家有目共睹。中中學生不單英語成績一落千丈﹐其他科目的成績也沒有時顯的進步。早前教育局長孫明揚更聲明﹐有必要檢討現行的母語教學政策﹐讓學校自決教學語言。其實在香港推行母語教學注定失敗﹐因為母語教學優勝的假設﹐是建基於一個錯誤的理論之上。母語教學的支持者﹐認為香港學生從小也接觸母語﹐使用母語作為教學語言﹐學生比較容易吸收新的知識﹐能夠幫助學生思考理解課文內容。…
