89 Hour Trip

Earlier this month, my friends and I had a trip to Dieng, and, Jogyakarta. It was kinda fun fun fun to stick around my friends for few days but there were many things that set me up. Mostly came from the school itself. We skipped many objects to learn because of the misschedule that forced to wait longer and sleep lately.

Day 1

It was going well enough. Keberangkatannya agak terlambat sekitar 1 jam-an (seharusnya berangkat jam 2 siang), jadi semuanya mulai serba kacau dari situ. Seharusnya kita (rombongan study tour) makan malam sesuai dengan jadwal, tapi karena berangkatnya terlambat, jadi sampainya juga terlambat. Karena perjalanan panjang, banyak yang merasa mabuk darat tak terkecuali saya, mual dan akhirnya muntah beberapa saat sebelum sampai di pom bensin buat ke toilet umumnya. Setelah makan malam di rest area buat bus, di daerah Tasik, Jawa Barat.

Day 2

Kamis, 5 Mei, waktu subuh, rombongan udah sampai di daerah Dieng dan berhenti di sebuah masjid buat shalat subuh. Targetnya udah harus nyampe di bukit sebelum pagi karena ngejar sunrise. Tapi lagi-lagi ga sesuai harapan. Karena hampir semua orang ngantri pipis di toilet masjid yang Cuma ada 2 bilik itu. Padahal dibutuhin 30 menit buat sampai bukit. Jadi sunrise ga bisa dikejar. Mulai saat itu mulai kejar-kejaran sama waktu. Kejar-kejarannya sampai di Borobudur. Di Borobudur cuman berkunjung 30 menit karena kalah kejar-kejaran. Sampai-sampai salah satu bus rombongan, bus E rusak.

Day 3

Hari ini lumayan enak karena ada waktu belanjanya (yay!) lumayan lah dari jam 2 sampai jam 6 sore kita dipersilahkan bebas bertanggung jawab untuk berkeliaran di Malioboro. Walaupun hujan pas saya balik ke bis rombongan sampai agak chaos karena kaki saya berdarah demi menghadang becek.

Day 4

Check out dari hotel, terus perjalanan ke Kaliurang. Tapi sebelumnya mampir dulu di toko bakpia dekat hotel. Sayangnya saat itu ada rombongan sekolah lain ikut beli bakpia di situ. Jadi cheotic paling parah sebenarnya di situ. 3 words: penuh, sesak, sesak.

Day 5

Sebenarnya ini kelanjutan dari hari ke 4. Karena Sabtu mulai pukul 00.00 pun udah di perjalanan pulang. Kerjaannya cuma makan, makan, dan makan (di hari sebelumnya). Dan sampai di tujuan pulang kira-kira jam 7an.

total perjalanan:

(more/less) 89 jam lah

'The Booming One'

Hey there how you doin? :) I'm a little bit in anger because of the tab that you click when you want to edit the template is in error or something cause it won't loading well. anyway, how bad is my mood today, i will post something good. i dont know if it's good or not but i post what i like.

and suddenly this TV serial shown up in my mind and i think it's good for you to read before judge.


It's a serial comedy which serve a high school story about an unmentioned glee club. It's Will Schuester, a high-school Spanish teacher becomes the director of the school's Glee club, hoping to restore it to its former glory. Starting from 5 members of kids, Rachel, Kurt, Mercedes, Tina, Artie, this club trying to survive until they got Finn, a football guy who has a hidden talent: sing. everything was going well until a cheerleader team coach Sue Sylvester ruin the club by trying to destroy the club existence. and then, New Direction (name of the glee club) have Quinn, Santana, Brittany from the cheer leading team and Puck, Mike and Matt from the football team.

Glee showed its first episode in 2009 on FOX channel (now it's shown in STAR World channel). first season was 22 episodes, and now Glee is in its second season and I don't know the last episode was. and the last thing I know is Glee, Chris Colfer, and Jane Lynch won 2011 Golden Globe Award as the best TV series,
Best Television Series - Musical or Comedy, Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role in a Series, Mini-Series or Motion Picture Made for Television, Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role in a Series, Mini-Series or Motion Picture Made for Television

I used to watch it via DVD whole fully first season because I'm not subscribe any TV cable connection. but now I don't have more any interest about. so I haven't check out the last story. I love the songs they sung, I love the plot, I love Chris Colfer, Mark Salling, and the guys *blushing* but now I just getting bored because of its brand new songs. i just dont get why do they re-sing the new singles such as Katy Perry's and Bruno Mars'. because I prefer the original one.

Okay, that's all I can say about Glee series. It's okay if you hate it and it's alright if you hate it more :p but personally i liked it when it was only few people talk about it because I don't like something booming hehehe then CU soon bye! :)

History of Movie

this is the first post being on this blog and I'm starting to have kinda like the themed one. and this blog's theme is about movie, TV, and stuff. and in this post is talking about the history of movie but i don't have any resource but Wikipedia. so just read it or leave it

The beginning of cinema

[edit] Precursors of film

Plays and dances had elements common to films- scripts, sets, lighting, costumes, production, direction, actors, audiences, storyboards, and scores. They preceded film by thousands of years. Much terminology later used in film theory and criticism applied, such as mise en scène. Moving visual images and sounds were not recorded for replaying as in film.

Anthemius of Tralles used an early type of camera obscura in the 6th century.[2] The camera obscura was further described by Alhazen in his Book of Optics (1021),[3][4][5] and was later perfected near the year 1600 by Giambattista della Porta. Light is inverted through a small hole or lens from outside, and projected onto a surface or screen, creating a projected moving image, indistinguishable from a projected high quality film to an audience, but it is not preserved in a recording.

In 1739 and 1748, David Hume published Treatise of Human Nature and An Enquiry concerning Human Understanding, arguing for the associations and causes of ideas with visual images, in some sense forerunners to the language of film.

Moving images were produced on revolving drums and disks in the 1830s with independent invention by Simon von Stampfer (Stroboscope) in Austria, Joseph Plateau (Phenakistoscope) in Belgium and William Horner (zoetrope) in Britain.

In 1877, under the sponsorship of Leland Stanford, Eadweard Muybridge successfully photographed a horse named "Sallie Gardner" in fast motion using a series of 24 stereoscopic cameras. The experiment took place on June 11 at the Palo Alto farm in California with the press present. The purpose of the exercise was to determine whether a running horse ever had all four legs lifted off the ground at once. The cameras were arranged along a track parallel to the horse's, and each of the camera shutters was controlled by a trip wire which was triggered by the horse's hooves. They were 21 inches apart to cover the 20 feet taken by the horse stride, taking pictures at one thousandth of a second.[6]

Roundhay Garden Scene 1888, the first known celluloid film recorded.

The second experimental film, Roundhay Garden Scene, filmed by Louis Le Prince on October 14, 1888 in Roundhay, Leeds, West Yorkshire, England, UK is now known as the earliest surviving motion picture.

On June 21, 1889, William Friese-Greene was issued patent no. 10131 for his 'chronophotographic' camera. It was apparently capable of taking up to ten photographs per second using perforated celluloid film. A report on the camera was published in the British Photographic News on February 28, 1890. On 18 March, Friese-Greene sent a clipping of the story to Thomas Edison, whose laboratory had been developing a motion picture system known as the Kinetoscope. The report was reprinted in Scientific American on April 19.[7] Friese-Greene gave a public demonstration in 1890 but the low frame rate combined with the device's apparent unreliability failed to make an impression.

As a result of the work of Etienne-Jules Marey and Eadweard Muybridge, many researchers in the late 19th century realized that films as they are known today were a practical possibility, but the first to design a fully successful apparatus was W. K. L. Dickson, working under the direction of Thomas Alva Edison. His fully developed camera, called the Kinetograph, was patented in 1891 and took a series of instantaneous photographs on standard Eastman Kodak photographic emulsion coated on to a transparent celluloid strip 35 mm wide. The results of this work were first shown in public in 1893, using the viewing apparatus also designed by Dickson, and called the Kinetoscope. This was contained within a large box, and only permitted the images to be viewed by one person at a time looking into it through a peephole, after starting the machine by inserting a coin. It was not a commercial success in this form, and left the way free for Charles Francis Jenkins and his projector, the Phantoscope, with the first showing before an audience in June 1894. The Lumière brothers, Louis and Auguste, perfected their apparatus, the Cinématographe, a projector, as well as being the apparatus that took and printed the film beforehand. They gave their first show of projected pictures to an audience in Paris in December 1895. [1]

After this date, the Edison company developed its own form of projector, as did various other inventors. Some of these used different film widths and projection speeds, but after a few years the 35-mm wide Edison film, and the 16-frames-per-second projection speed of the Lumière Cinématographe became standard. The other important American competitor was the American Mutoscope & Biograph Company, which used a new camera designed by Dickson after he left the Edison company.[1]

At the Chicago 1893 World's Columbian Exposition, Muybridge gave a series of lectures on the Science of Animal Locomotion in the Zoopraxographical Hall, built specially for that purpose in the "Midway Plaisance" arm of the exposition. He used his zoopraxiscope to show his moving pictures to a paying public, making the Hall the very first commercial movie theater.[6]

William Kennedy Laurie Dickson, chief engineer with the Edison Laboratories, is credited with the invention of a practicable form of a celluloid strip containing a sequence of images, the basis of a method of photographing and projecting moving images.[citation needed] Celluloid blocks were thinly sliced, then removed with heated pressure plates. After this, they were coated with a photosensitive gelatin emulsion.[citation needed] In 1893 at the Chicago World's Fair, Thomas Edison introduced to the public two pioneering inventions based on this innovation; the Kinetograph - the first practical moving picture camera - and the Kinetoscope. The latter was a cabinet in which a continuous loop of Dickson's celluloid film (powered by an electric motor) was back lit by an incandescent lamp and seen through a magnifying lens. The spectator viewed the image through an eye piece. Kinetoscope parlours were supplied with fifty-foot film snippets photographed by Dickson, in Edison's "Black Maria" studio (pronounced like "ma-RYE-ah"). These sequences recorded mundane events (such as Fred Ott's Sneeze, 1894) as well as entertainment acts like acrobats, music hall performers and boxing demonstrations.

Kinetoscope parlors soon spread successfully to Europe. Edison, however, never attempted to patent these instruments on the other side of the Atlantic, since they relied so greatly on previous experiments and innovations from Britain and Europe. This enabled the development of imitations, such as the camera devised by British electrician and scientific instrument maker Robert W. Paul and his partner Birt Acres.

Charles Francis Jenkins had the idea of displaying moving pictures for group audiences, rather than just to individual viewers, and invented the first patented film projector, the Phantoscope, giving the earliest documented projection of a motion picture, in 1894. Paul did it in 1895. At about the same time, in Lyon, France, Auguste and Louis Lumière invented the cinematograph, a portable, three-in-one device: camera, printer, and projector. In late 1895 in Paris, father Antoine Lumière began exhibitions of projected films before the paying public, beginning the general conversion of the medium to projection (Cook, 1990). They quickly became Europe's main producers with their actualités like Workers Leaving the Lumière Factory and comic vignettes like The Sprinkler Sprinkled (both 1895). Even Edison, initially dismissive of projection, joined the trend with the Vitascope, a modified Jenkins' Phantoscope, within less than six months. The first public motion-picture film presentation in Europe, though, belongs to Max and Emil Skladanowsky of Berlin, who projected with their apparatus "Bioscop", a flickerfree duplex construction, November 1 through 31, 1895.

That same year in May, in the USA, Eugene Augustin Lauste devised his Eidoloscope for the Latham family. But the first public screening of film ever is due to Jean Aimé "Acme" Le Roy, a French photographer. On February 5, 1894, his 40th birthday, he presented his "Marvellous Cinematograph" to a group of around twenty show business men in New York City.

The movies of the time were seen mostly via temporary storefront spaces and traveling exhibitors or as acts in vaudeville programs. A film could be under a minute long and would usually present a single scene, authentic or staged, of everyday life, a public event, a sporting event or slapstick. There was little to no cinematic technique: no editing and usually no camera movement, and flat, stagey compositions. But the novelty of realistically moving photographs was enough for a motion picture industry to mushroom before the end of the century, in countries around the world.
