Live the Love

LOVE STORY (Taylor Swift) meets VIVA LA VIDA (Coldplay) - Piano Cello - by Jon Schmidt

This an awesome piano cello cover of Taylor Swift's Love Story and Coldplay's Viva la Vida. This arrangement was dedicated by an unsigned recording artist and composer, Jon Schmidt to his 7 year old daughter Sarah. His great friend Steven Sharp Nelson plays the cello. According to him, the existence of a common rhythm element between the tunes enables the uncanny integration to occur. An absolutely great piece in my opinion.

Also, the MP3 download will be available from his site ( in a couple of weeks :) For those unable to wait, here is a download link. Full credit goes to the uploader.

P.S. Though it is hardly a rendition of my own, I'm dedicating this amazing tune to my mum. Words alone is unable to capture how much you mean to me. Happy Mother's Day ma!

The Massacre

I've been real lazy lately. Do pardon my ignorance :P

Not in a good mood at all today. After a month and 6 days, my C905 finally succumbed to the infamous earpiece problem. Couldn't listen to any sound nor voice from an incoming call earlier this morning. Sigh, was slightly excited for a moment there thinking that my toy developed a noise-cancellation ability. Apparently not. 30 seconds later I knew these 2 pieces got busted.

* bows head for a minute of silence *

I've already known this is an uncommon problem among earlier batches of this model, notably those produced prior to the Week 48 of 2008. Heck, mine's from an 09 production batch!

* . . . *

Alright, before being blamed for blatantly purchasing a toy with a history of known illnesses, I seriously took the effort of reading various forums and reviews okay?! In addition to that, I've also spent time watching streaming video reviews. (time that should very well be used for studying EC *guilty*)

Handed the toy to the service center in The Gardens, third floor. According to the salesperson in-charge, it'll take them at least a week to repair. It's not as if I'm complaining at all the repair is gonna be free due to the warranty. I just hate the fact that my precious is gonna be massacred.

* Tries hard to neglect thoughts of particle entrapment within the screen *

Sigh. Oh well, it looks like it's a vacation for two with my long abandoned W800i. On a side note, probably it's a blessing in disguise. Couldn't imagine this shit happens during my time in UK. I'd be helpless with my Malaysian warranty.
