Post-EarthHour reflections?

Yes, on my brother’s initiative, the lights were out (just our house in our little neighbourhood) but everything else (TV, laptop, aircond, fridge) was on…

Tell me. How does turning off the lights for one hour a year help save the planet? Honestly, I can’t see the BIGGER picture here. If I did, it wouldn’t be just the lights I’d switch off. (My idea is to have the whole world “shut down” and the face of the Earth if seen from space would disappear in the dark! But I know that’s too much to ask…)

~~~

Let’s see…what should I post about tonight? Cibol said my blog was “berhabuk” (i.e. collecting dust) due to the lack of posts thus the unnecessary “pressure” for me to post something…

But coincidently, when I was driving around town with my bro just now, we heard this cool song got #1 on the Indonesian charts…and I bet all us IT-savvy aka online-addicts can relate…

Listen and see if you can NOT agree that we are most of what he described…

SAYKOJI – ONLINE

chorus:
siang malam ku selalu
menatap layar terpaku
untuk on line on line
on line on line
jari dan keyboard beradu
pasang earphone dengar lagu
aku on line online
on line on line

verse 1:
tidur telat bangun pagi pagi
nyalain komputer online lagi
bukan mau ngetik kerjaan
e-mail tugas diserahkan

tapi malah buka facebook
padahal face masih ngantuk
beler kayak orang mabuk
pala naik turun ngangguk-ngangguk

sambil ngedownload empitri
colok i pod usb kiri
ngecekin postingan forum
apa ada balesannye? belum

biar belum sikat gigi belum mandi
tapi kalo belum on line paling anti
liat friendster myspace, youtube
me and him, everybody you too

cerse 2:
nah udah mandi siap berangkat
langsung cabut takut terlambat
tak lupa flash disk gantung di leher
malah lupa sepatu jadi nyeker

flashdisk isinya bokep atau lagu
kalau ada kerjaanpun gue ragu
kalo emang berani coba pada ngaku
cek isi foldernya satu satu

di kantor online pakai proxy
walau diblok server bisa dilolosi
namanya udah ketagihan internet
produktifitaspun kepepet

jam kerja malah chatting ym
ngobrol online sama si ehehem
atasan lewat langsung klik data
pura pura kerja di depan mata

bridge:
makan siangpun ajy cari sinyal wifi
mengapa ku kecanduan oh why why
kadang terasa bagai tak berdaya
ingin ku berubah.. eh ada e-mail dah dulu ya

verse 3:
cek e-mail spam semua
email benerannya cuma dua
yang satu email lama
yang satu forwardan yang sama

ngarep komentar buka friendster
loading, gue tinggal beser
pas balik ngecek komputer kok lagi maintenance server

ya udah download lagu
bajakan gratis gak pake ragu
saykoji satu album
setengah jam bisa rampung

sore sore bosen hambar
ide nakal cari cari gambar
download video dengan sabar
ketahuan pacar digampar

P.S. – Yeah, a totally lazy post. 😉

  1. I was out watching a movie during that one hour, so no idea how my neighborhood faired. Haven’t been here in a long while, it is great to visit and catch up 🙂

    Yeah…nice to see u here again too. 🙂

  2. me either could not see any benefits of doing the earth hour… what can we do to save the earth by just doing it on switching off the light… bukan kalau using candles, asap candles boleh buat air pollutions ka? hehehe 😀

    by the way, nice lyric ba lagu anu buat skalian org yang addicted sama online… 😀

    Awu…getting femes lagu tu in Brunei…

  3. Hahaha.. I guess, turning off the lights for an hour is a symbol.. but I heard some went on to turn off their headlights as well!!

    Now that is crazy and stupid, not to mention dangerous.
