Flash mobs, or the brief pre-arranged gathering of strangers in a single place, started in 2003 according to CNN. This picture above was taken in Antwerp, Belgium. The theme of the flash mob is pajama pillow fight!

I am also currently reading this book about zombies. They invade our world. Like vampires in The Strain, zombies tried to eradicate the humans. Good book.
This is being turned into a movie, with Brad Pitt as the producer and will be directed by Marc Forster (The Kite Runner, Quantum of Solace, and Monster’s Ball).

This Friday, July 17, Indonesian capital of Jakarta was attacked with two deadly bombings in two upscale hotels–JW Marriot and Ritz Carlton. No one has yet claimed responsibility for the bombing.
Hotels are easy target for terrorists. The wrath in Mumbai is still fresh in our minds, and this one again.
When will this end? It’s creepy!
The new Harry Potter movie is dark in ton, and I love it. I think that this is the best movie in the series, followed closely by the third movie.
But what makes the dark tone lighten is the love angle between Harry and Ginny, and Ron and Hermione. They are now buffed (esp Ron), and the final installment in the franchise is being wrapped up because the kids are already old.
In fact, Hermione is going to college already. I mean, in real life.
I thought that today is the first showing of Harry Potter. I hurriedly went home early, take a bath, and went straight to the cinema. But alas, no Harry Potter! Damn, it will be shown July 16. Tomorrow.
To compensate for my frustration, I drop by a bookstore to check what good books to read. I had just finish reading Let The Right One In, a vampire novel. And I heard about this Strain Trilogy, because this is a NY Times bestseller already, and is also about vampires. This was published in the US a month ago, and the hardbound edition is now available. The price is still steep, but what the heck. I will pay dearly for a good story.
So, after a vampire novel is another vampire saga.
Don’t you just wish vampires roam the world and their only target are assholes politicians? Decimate the world of bad apples. Meanwhile, I will transport myself to a gory New York, the setting.
