Tidur, Sudah Malam

hujan datang lagi malam ini
setelah sekian lama tak menyapa
senangnya mendengar suaranya
riuh ramai seperti ribuan bernyanyi

hujan datang lagi malam ini
menyapa, dan menyapu desir sejuk
terkadang dingin dan mencekam memang
terkadang gemuruh dan kilat menemani

ah, dunia ini serba relatif kawan
semua bagai dua sisi mata uang
tergantung kamu memandang dari sisi mana
dan lagi manusia tidak pernah tegas

hujan datang lagi malam ini
tak dihiraukannya pikiran kita
dibawa pikir kita melanglang buana
atau malah dihantarnya kita ke alam mimpi

terbuai, larut,
membawa kalut, dan melupakan kemelut
hujan datang lagi malam ini

ingin tidur pulas sekali,
tanpa rasa penasaran akan esok menghantui,
toh masa depan akan segera datang beberapa saat lagi

betapa kecilnya kita, dengan ambisi sepele kita dalam kehadiran kekuatan alam
bukti utama kebesaran sejati manusia adalah persepsi akan kekecilan dirinya (JPF Richter)

Hebat Aja!

Ini orang hebat aja yak?? Setelah liat vidionya, baru ngeh kalo bagian operanya yang nyanyiin dia juga, ckckckck.

and, here’s the lyrics:

Hey Mr. Curiosity
Is it true what they’ve been saying about you
Are you killing me?
You took care of the cat already
And for those who think it’s heavy
Is it the truth
Or is it only gossip
Call it mystery or anything
Just as long as you’d call me
I sent the message on did you get it when I left it
See this catastrophic event
It wasn’t meant to mean no harm
But to think there’s nothing wrong is a problem
I’m looking for love this time
Sounding hopeful but it’s making me cry
Love is a mystery
Mr. Curious…

Come back to me
Mr. waiting ever patient can’t you see
That I’m the same the way you left me
In a hurry to spell check me
And I’m underlined already in envy green
And pencil red
And I’ve forgotten what you’ve said
Will you stop working for the dead and return
Mr. curious well I need some inspiration
It’s my birthday and I cannot find no cause for celebration
The scenario is grave but I’ll be braver when you save me
From this situation laden with hearsay

I’m looking for love this time
Sounding hopeful but it’s making me cry
And love is a mystery
Mr. Curiosity
Be Mr. please
Do come and find me, oh
Find, find me, find me

I’m looking for love this time
Sounding hopeful but it’s making me cry
Trying not to ask why
Cause love is a mystery
Mr. curiosity
Be Mr. please
Do come and find me

Love is blinding when the timing’s never right
Oh who am I to beg for difference
Finding love in just an instant
Well I dont mind, at least I’ve tried
And I tried, I tried…

Tweet Using Bash

Yep, continuing the yesterday’s post about how to tweet via terminal, now, I’ll give you another example to tweet via terminal. It’s still using curl, but, now we’ll tweet by calling a file with bash command inside. It (still)looks cool, and you don’t have to type a looong command in terminal just to tweet (in a case you don’t like to memorize the looong command) 😆 Use this script:

#!/bin/bash
read -p "Username: " username
stty -echo
read -p "Password: " password;echo
stty echo
read -p "Status: " status
curl -u $username:$password -d status="$status" http://twitter.com/statuses/update.xml 1> /dev/null
echo "Status updated! ;)"

Save and name it whatever-you-wish-to-name-it continued with sh extension, so it will be like “i-wish-to-name-it-like-this.sh”. After that, give this file ability to be run, with command “chmod +x i-wish-to-name-it-like-this.sh”. Then just try run “./i-wish-to-name-it-like-this.sh”.

It should look like this, when you’re try to run it:

Tweeting From The Shell. Nuts.

Just recently know. Using curl you can update your twitter status via terminal. First, get curl off course, install it by Synaptic or terminal “sudo apt-get install curl”. Then try this code:

$ curl -u username:password -d status="Tweeting from the shell. Nuts." http://twitter.com/statuses/update.xml

Or if you’re worried of people standing behind you, trying to peek on your password try this code:

$ curl -u username -d status="Tweeting from the shell. Nuts." http://twitter.com/statuses/update.xml

I prefer use the second one of course :lol:. It doesn’t require password (will asks for it instead).

PS: I’m using Ubuntu if you’re wondering what kind of “Terminal” I used in my post. 😀

PPS: Hey, this is my first blogpost in English, sorry for any misspelled words, or other inconvenience in my post 🙂

Lethologica

Ini bukan tentang albumnya Letto yang baru, yang namanya juga Lethologica, tapi ini tentang sebuah sindrom. Berawal dari post temen saya ini, saya ingat pernah baca sekilas tentang Lethologica, keadaan saat kamu tidak bisa menemukan kata yang tepat atau tidak dapat mengingat apa nama atau kata yang merujuk pada satu fakta atau benda yang ada.

Lebih lengkapnya ada beberapa penjelasan terkait tentang hal ini, saya ambilkan dari beberapa sumber.

  1. dari Wikipedia: is a psychological disorder that inhibits an individual’s ability to articulate his or her thoughts by temporarily forgetting key words, phrases or names in conversation.
  2. dari UrbanDictionary: Lethologica is a psychological disorder where in an individual temporarily forgets key words, phrases or names in conversation.

Sama pada intinya, kalo mau lihat lebih lengkap penjelasannya di Wikipedia, bahkan dibilang sindrom lethologica ini bisa menjadi masalah serius. Hal ini bisa disebabkan oleh banyak hal, seperti stres, kebugaran fisik, interaksi sosial dan kapasitas memori otak. Jadi, kita harus sering-sering melatih otak, supaya tetap tajam dan responsif, jangan sampai otak kita terjual mahal karena masih orisinil alias jarang dipakai 😆
