Great, great collection!

First time I noticed this guy was at the Levis’ Youtube video ‘Behind the Scenes of Shepard Fairey and Mr. Andre at Levis’ flagship store at Champs Elysees, Paris. At that time I was interesting at the background music which until now, I do not have information about the composer at all. In sum, I did not pay attention to what this guy doing for living. All I thought at that time was okay, they were doing graffiti, that is. Beside that was not point of my interest at all.
Later I was captivated by some infamous informations about him. First, Obama’s poster “Hope” was his creation and his artwork in street was beyond the images and pictures. After I see his work, as an outsider of artistic world, I found his pictures or the way he created an artwork is superb. His approach also is not ordinary on street art, lots of stenciling and printing that glued on the wall. But in the end, all the pictures make us stop in our way to think about with our consciousness. It has message with solid red color and bold picture.
Thanks to Mr Fairey, street art gained recognition in society and more importantly, street art no longer associate with public disturbance. In Indonesia, especially in Jakarta, I found in some streets below flyover, there are graffiti art contained message about discipline on street.

It had been a while, or maybe longer since the last post. Thesis drives anybody crazy. I definitely agree on that. Just recalling on my thesis defense. The solution for that only one. Just answer the question without hesitance or to the extreme, without thinking. Do impulse as far as you can. But… still within the context. I did in range so-so to well, so I passed with little twist done by my examiner during the announcement. Great job to them.
I have been thinking lately. What am I going to do after this? Sounds so lame, I know, but it’s true! There are two crossroads which I think existed after university graduation. First follow-where-the-wind-lead-you path and second its-been-decided path. The first path, generally you know nothing to do, nothing to plan, nothing and nothing. So when the chance comes to you, you take it and you start from there to somewhere unknown. The second one, you know where is your next destination. You know what you want to do, what kind of job you want to apply after you finish your education.
I don’t know which road should I take. I am looking forward to possibility, so i want to take first road. But I am still asking myself what passion I have that I want commit my self and energy to the fullest. I still can’t figure it out until now. Maybe I should take the first road. But if I work too hard to find that passion and in the end of the road is a cliff, should I not take the first road in the beginning. Maybe with planning ahead or taking the second road, I can find the passion along the way? I think I’ll walk both roads, if things are puzzle. Life is adventurous, yes? That’s what people say. And yes, it’s always true.
I’ll never forget this speech. Her courage, her strength and her humility tell me a lot about being a person.
The name is Bond, James Bond. This movie was amazing. It’s the first Bond’s movie I watched .The thriller was breathtaking at the first 12 minutes. I think it was doing little adjustment with current trend of Hollywood movie, the dark side of the hero. Too bad this was Judi Dench’s last movie, meaning that she won’t be in the next Bond’s movie. But the ending was… I don’t know, feeling sad but relief at the same time.
PS: I don’t know if the parents sat next to me, had watched previous Bond’s movies because they were always rated Adult/Dewasa. They came along with their children which are a lot (3/4 idk). So when u-know-what scene came up, the parents were busy to cover their children eyes. Funny story.
It’s been a long time, Jared. I know.
