A couple of night ago, I just watched "Knight and Day", a movie starred by Cameron Diaz and Tom Cruise. Hmm, even I don't like both of them, but I must say the movie is quite good. It's funny even the action scene is so-so and the story is just so cheesy. But it's entertaining anyway...

But there is one line that I really love from Tom Cruise, or Roy Miller or Matthew Knight at this movie. I love his definition about the word "someday". He said "someday" is such a dangerous word, because this word represent of a time that will never come.

Even he said it's a dangerous word, for me it's a saddening word yet beautiful...

Because when you hope for something, wish something that deep inside of you said that it won't come true, you'll say "someday". There is kind of hope in word of "someday". But still, it's saddening, because someday being used when you need adverb of time that will never come.

And somehow, for some reasons, this word being used as a title of several songs from Ash, Flipsyde, Nickelback, Nina, and greatest band on earth, The Strokes. I never thought about the lyrics before, but after Tom said it, I relistened of these songs again, and... it sucks...

In many ways, they'll miss good old days,
someday someday
Yeah it hurts to say, but I want you to stay
sometimes sometimes
(The Strokes, Someday)

Someday we'll leave behind
this sad life
and all it's lies
all it's harm, and all it's charm
oh someday
(Ash, Someday)

why sky always be the limit

Selayaknya tanah,
hanya sebagai tempat berpijak
dan meninggalkan jejak

Bagaikan embun,
menyejuki bumi di pagi hari
kemudian terlupakan karena sang mentari

Seperti salju,
selalu dirindu saat tiada
namun terhempas jika telah tiba

Berbeda dengan sang langit,
akan selalu dijunjung
tak pernah tergapai
tak kan tersentuh
tak kan teraih

Laksana angin,
semilir syahdu menyentuh kalbu
namun tak dapat tersentuh,
pun terengkuh

Get Set Go, Wait

Wait for the dawn, my dear
Wait till the sun gets here
And you will wait too long he will be gone

Wait till the sun shines through
Wait till the sky is blue
And you will wait too long, he will be gone
he will be gone

Ooh, he will be gone
Ooh, he will be gone

Wait till the signs are right
Wait till the perfect time
And you will wait too long he will be gone,
he will be gone

Ooh, he will be gone
Ooh, he will be gone

Wait till you doubt no more
Wait till you know for sure
And you will wait too long
He will be gone

Flowers for Algernon

I would like to write about a novel titled "Flowers for Algernon" by Daniel Keyes. This is one of my favorite novel. The story is kinda absurd, but not really absurd actually, hmm this is so-so absurd novel kind of type. Halah, naon sih...

It's about a guy named Charlie who has very low IQ (68), who were chosen to undergo the brain surgeon to increase his intelligence. Since this surgeon, already succeed to Algernon.
Algernon is a mouse, laboratory mouse to be more exact that has surgery to increase his (or her) intelligence.

But after his intelligence increased, he started to realize how terrible life is. The things that amused him when he was still with IQ 68, now disappoint him. He knows how many flaws, and fakes in the world that he live in.

And then, Algernon showed some intelligence decrease, so did Charlie. But even so, his maturity grown up, he was not the same Charlie as before. Maybe the IQ became 68 again, but he became wiser after he knew something he felt he didn't need to know.

And then after Algernon died, Charlie decided to go the institution for men like him (need particular needs), and asked someone to put flowers at Algernon's grave.

The story is so damn simple, but somehow touch me. I bought this book when I was still in SHS (even I already know about this novel since I was in elementary, but it hadn't published in Indonesia yet), and I love it. This is one of first novel that I love.

Nice job, Daniel Keyes...
