An unacessible website, a punctured tire and a law presentation.

They say June is the luckiest month for brides and marriages, while I say June is the unluckiest, most horrible, AND hectic month for the likes of me. Besides the usual piling on assignments, projects, presentations and 'money-always-seem-to-magically-disappear' daily life, I find myself thrown into further desperation. Just at the start of an early, fresh and rosy JUNE morning, Veoh decided to send everyone in my country love letters.


I thought it might have been a glitch, so I did a refresh. A few seconds later, the same message pops up, and so I did another refresh. Then another one.

For the next 5 minutes, I was just staring plainly at the message and doing refreshes. I mean, what the heck do they mean "Veoh is no longer available in your country"? Is this some kind of tasteless April's Fool Joke? Except We're in freaking JUNE now.

Nevertheless, I hold in my doubts and waited for the next day to come. By tomorrow, I'm expecting to see some kind of message that falls along the lines of "Ha! Gotcha! Happy June's Fool Day!" or something like that. So again, I visited Veoh with a hopeful smile on my face. *grins cynically* Till today, I could never understand how stupidedly positive I was back then.

My face fell when I saw the same message. And today, no number of refreshes could remove that dreadful message from my screen.

I felt anger, I felt sadness and I feel betrayal at the same time. Are they trying to tell me to give up on my weekly dose of Reborn, Gintama and One Piece? Granted, they might sound pretty trivial to some of you guys, but they are what I look forward to most at the end of every week! And they are trying to take this right away from me! And without notice too, to add.

Their brilliant excuse?

Just wonderful.

Aside from my very terrible experience with Veoh, I was in deeper shit today when I found myself with a flat tire in the middle of a busy road. I was driving home from school when I saw a friend of mine walking just beside my car. I honked once, he didn't notice, honked twice, he didn't look up. Tried to honk again and the next thing I know is I ended up on the pavement. If this is a blessing in disguise then the only blessing here is I'm lucky I only end up with a flat tire.

Lesson learnt: Never try to honk and wave at the same time.

EDIT: Fixed my car and cost me a bomb of 350. Aparrently, the rack end, shaft, rim were also busted, along with the tire.

Now, we'll talk about my rendevous with trade mark law. I have a Law presentation this wednesday and though the result is okay, the tedious part is the process. Few days before the big presentation, my group and I were combing through the library to search for Intellectual Property law. After the books are gathered, Cat went and photostated all the necessary material and we had our dicussion.

The problem comes in only after the discussion, when I was trying to do my part of slides. Beside the fact that I'm totally clueless about trade mark law, I was assigned to cover up the introduction of Infringement and the exceptions to it. The thing is, after I'm done doing my part, I felt amissed, like something definitely went wrong somewhere. Turns out I was right when I discussed it again with my team mates. I was doing the wrong law for the wrong contry, and ended up doing trade mark law for Australia, instead of the UK.

That still wasn't as bad as I only have to redo my research and slides again. The worst part is that I have to do all my preparation in the dead of the night, after my brothers went to sleep, which is usually around 1 a.m. and with one hand supporting my monitor's wire which came loose and wouldn't stay in its place no matter how much tape I use. Apparently, after he got his computer back from maintainence, I wouldn't be able to access to the net whenever he's using his com. Being the gaming freak he is, he will allow me to use the net during the day only when hell freezes over.

Hmph. Law and my grievances.

Anyway, to lighten the topic, I found this delightful video when I was YouTube browsing. It was an animation done by a fan on a cross between Reborn and Ouran, and was just too cute for words. >_< Kyaa!



Enjoy.

Oh. Before I end, the next post I'll be working on will probably cover the Summer Anime season. Look forward to it. A month later.

Somehow, I don't see that happening. Even if I pray.

Hi Chen Yee!

It's me again,after a long time.

Forgot to ask u,wat course are you doing now? Law? Where? You didnt complete your secondary sch studies in Sg?

Btw,your posts are always so entertaining. =D

Zeepish said...

@qiuru
Hi! You know, that's probably the nicest comment I've ever recieved after I started this blog.

And in answer to your questions, I did finish my secondary education in Singapore. I'm studying Mass communication now in a private college in Malaysia. This is my second and last year into the course.

HI! just read about your problems with veoh. Actually, veoh is unavailable in kuwait & Romania too, which is strange, after all since u watch anime on it u might have seen that there are many Romanian uploaders & well if in that country they dont use the site enough, I wonder who does. Is it a problem about illegal videos or stupid things like that,I dont know. I only hope that they didnt close it in france during my absence or...no cant even imagin it. Good luck & hope the proxy sites work for u or at least that u can still find the episodes on other sites, even though v was the best in terms of quality.
BTW, I really like ur blog,its much more alive than searching on anime netwerk or sth for the new anime. :))

@etheral blue
I bet Veoh must be really tight on their budget, to be closing their services to that many parts of the world. Sigh. The only other alternative streaming service I'm using currently is Youtube but like you said it, Veoh has the best quality (though I'd hate to admit it).

And yes, thank you for your nice comment. It's really appreciated. ^_^

Hi, thank all the gods & goddesses of anime, I still have veoh here in France, but I don't have the time to use it (university, sister's exams,...). Still hope that u can find the anime ur looking for. sometimes, I have to search for a long time to find older or less known stuff. i like sites like truveo that enables u to do a multiple sites search even though it's not always accurate. Oh well, good luck ...

Good god, there's a really easy solution for this problem. For a start, sign up at veoh and download veoh tv. If my memory serves me right, it'll remove the 5 min preview time. Other than that, you can use a different proxy, though the loading speed will be slower.

Hello everyone!
I would like to burn a theme at here. There is such a thing, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of ponzy-like structure, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

For quite a long time, I make money with the help of these programs.
I don't have problems with money now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I make 2G daily, and my first investment was 500 dollars only.
Right now, I managed to catch a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Turn to my web site to get additional info.
