Twitter trend-stter


With the boom of social media application like Facebook and Twitter, plus the ease of uploading and storing new materials on the net, added with the need of effective communication, we have come a long way in exploring, understanding, experimenting, learning, and developing techniques in influencing and at times CREATE a trend. It's a fun and crazy tale at first, and becomes grim towards the end.

Trend is a very powerful concept. Much like electricity where the impact of the voltage alone does not gives a circuit power, but when that magnitude moves with a current, we got watts. In the same analogy, a trend is crucial in communication where humanity has come to a point in human civilization where human talk endlessly, especially with the boom of social media sites and the competition in the electronic gadget industry which make a 9 year-old kindergarten kid seemed to have the 'telepathic power' as per saints in old times.

As our journey in uncovering the secrets in influencing AND creating trends, we accidentally stumbled upon ancient art where one can influence trends not by the means of the material world,

..but through dreams.

Black Light Burns - "Lie" I Am

I like this song so much, I post it in my blog:

I'm living a lie
And it's not the best thing for me
But anyone and everyone is gonna hear another story
I'm building a house
Of murderous intention
To keep it all from coming down
I've gotta focus my attention
'cause confidence is key
When violating trust
I'm making sure that I believe
I'm doing what I must
Which is attempting to kill
The little boy inside
But as hard as I try...
The child will not die

Now I'm burning alive, just like you

I'm irrelevant
And I'm living down in the shit
I follow these pigs around
But I never get used to it
'cause they keep building and building
Their feculent franchise
I wish I could see this filth
Through someone else's eyes
'cause ignorance was bliss
But now I must adjust
These animals, they operate
On jealousy and lust
I'm taking back what was lost
And I will not be denied
I'm crawling my way to the surface outside

Now I'm burning alive, just like you
