allergic to stupidity….

by lostasylum | April 16th, 2010 

Our last design explanation was the konfewsd design which was all the way back in February.

Seriously, is it just me or does time seem to go faster and faster… 2009 was fast, but 2010 really seems to be in a rush!

Ok, so let’s not get sidetracked…. let’s talk about allergies… what is an allergy? The definition (which you can also google yourself) indicates an abnormal reaction in the body towards the allergen. In some cases, the body exhibits hypersensitivity…..

People usually associate allergies with common allergens like pollen, dust, peanuts and the like, but in real life, there are other things that provoke the same kind of bodily convulsions and reactions… and we thought it’d be good to highlight something that’s pretty common these days.. stupidity. =)

Some folks have commented about this design saying that we’re being very mean. But think about it… it’s ok to play the fool and just have fun, but to act like a jerk isn’t a character trait that many people would like in a personality. So, to us, unless you’re a chronic stupid person, there is no reason to feel threatened…. =)

If you’re not sure which design in particular we’re talking about, this is the t-shirt in question…

Our baby-t sizes are all sold out for this design, but the rest of the sizes are still available. So, if you would like to order your designs, do pay a visit to our ORDER PAGE.

We’ll be back next week with more news (we’re hoping to give you some good news next week) and more updates, so stay tuned. In the meantime, have a great weekend and be happy!

i know charlie’s angels, but who the heck is charlie???

by lostasylum | September 12th, 2008 

Remember this picture?

No, this is not a movie from the black and white movie era….

Anyways, this picture will probably bring back memories for the older generation. The younger generation would probably know this picture:

Charlie's Angels

Yes, the old black and white picture, is actually a photo of the original Charlie’s Angels series that aired from 1976 to 1981. Yes, there was colour tv back then. It’s just the photo that was taken in black and white, probably to make the photo have a more retro feel.

But anyway, in late June, when the ladies’ designs were launched, one of the designs that was launched had this statement:

Charlie's Angels.. but who's Charlie?

sooooo… who the heck is Charlie???

You see, throughout the lifespan of Charlie’s Angels the series, and also in the subsequent reincarnation of the trio to the silver screen, the Angels have changed and been subject to updates…. However, the one constant in this whole hullabaloo is CHARLIE. Now, I dunno about you, but this question has been bugging us for quite a while now… and so we did some investigation, and this is the story about Charlie

Charlie (from which the Angels get their title from), is the owner of the Charles Townsend Detective Agency, who actually recruits 3 (it’s always 3, don’t ask us why) beautiful ladies to work for him. What made Charlie so mysterious was the fact that he could handle these 3 strongheaded ladies, even though he’s NEVER met them!! All we are told is that Charlie is an ex-cop and a multimillionaire (how does that work out??) who rescued the 3 beauties from their dead end jobs as police officers who were actually doing secretaries’ work instead of solving crime and kicking bad butt.

Usually, Charlie is always seen from the back, sitting on a chair of some sort, sitting somewhere… and the most anyone would usually see is….his HAND

only Charlies hand, never the face...

But when they show the Angels talking to Charlie, it’s always in the form of a speakerphone. So, technically it wouldn’t be wrong to say that this was pretty much Charlie’s face in the late 70s and early 80s:

This was pretty much Charlies face

And how he would’ve looked like in the movie that came out a few years ago:

Charlies Angels Charlie gets an overhaul

Of course, it would easy to assume that Charlie was always played by some film extra who couldn’t act to save his life. But many would be surprised to find out that Charlie was played by the same person throughout the TV series. The actor who played Charlie wasn’t some unknown actor either. He was John Forsythe, who had roles in TV hits such as Dynasty and Bachelor Father. Even more amazing, it was reported that Forsythe was paid USD$5 million to reprise his role as Charlie in the movie edition in 2000! Not bad for just having to talk and wave your hand about!

So, what do you think about Charlie now? Or do you know Charlie better than we do? Let us know!

how dirty is blatant?

by lostasylum | September 8th, 2008 

These days, it’s hard to simply believe whether a website is good or not. A seemingly harmless name like could turn out to be anything BUT a website that is innocent.

So, we were curious to know what kind of rating that the blatant© website would have since we started this new website…. so we went to a website that rates websites and this is the result….


OnePlusYou Quizzes and Widgets

Not bad eh?… =)

However, what we found a little disturbing was the simplistic nature of how the ratings were given… this is the reason why our website was given a very commendable “G” rating:

Not the most confidence inspiring rating system, but hey, we still passed with flying colours! =)

On another note, it would be worthwhile to mention that our website has reached a milestone of sorts today….

It’s a blatant© spammiversary! It’s been 365 spams we’ve received since we migrated to this new website… *clap* *clap*….

the font conference!

by lostasylum | September 2nd, 2008 

Do words like TIMES NEW ROMAN, COMIC SANS MS, IMPACT and TAHOMA sound familiar to you? If they do, congratulations, you are definitely a FONT freak!

But imagine if these fonts weren’t just alphabets that form a word? What IF these Fonts really lived and breathed just like you and me? In fact, what if the Fonts themselves had conferences to decide which new applicant could join the established Fonts fraternity?

You can’t? Well, I couldn’t either.. until I was referred to this video about “The Font Conference”:

It may not catch on with those who are not familiar with the various different types of fonts, but for those of us who are heavy users of various fonts, this humorous videos probably struck a chord with us, especially with WING DINGS! Oh, how misunderstood he is… =)

Hopefully this helped to cheer up your day!

A big thank you to Jason Ding for providing us with this hilarious video!

I almost met U2 on Sunday…..

by lostasylum | August 11th, 2008 

The account given below has been verified true and accurate, but the identity of the person has not been disclosed for privacy purposes

The sunlight vanished behind me as I enter the building and walk through the door to a dark area… I turn to the left and I look at the sign staring at me… I wonder whether I am really here? Could I really be……… on the verge of seeing U2?










I am suddenly distracted from my momentary daydream and I proceed to the wash basin… it’s amazing how a simple mental trigger from an image can cause a day dream… I look back, smile, and walk back into the sunlight….

Ok, I didn’t exactly end up in a U2 concert, or anywhere close to it. I was in fact at a graduation ceremony in MMU (Multimedia University) Cyberjaya on Sunday to witness a family member graduate from the corridors of education….

But while waiting for the other 19,234 students to get their names read out, there were a few other things that caught my attention (besides the U2 urinal that is)….

I saw a sign that showed you the exact location of where cancer could be found:

The actual intent of the sign was to show the public where the cancer awareness booth was located, but c’mon, the sign could have been a little more informative and less misleading…..

Then an image of the clash of old and new just made me smile…..

There was a shop that was selling kacang putih (Malaysian tid bits) and kingston thumbdrives / memory sticks right next to each other…

Imagery of kids playing and having fun always strikes a chord…. Especially when they get to play with REAL snakes, sorry.. a REAL life-sized version of snakes and ladders I mean!

But the highlight of my visit was seeing this while making my way to the convocation area:

I didn’t get to meet U2, but this sure made me happy! =)

PS: If you are the dude in this picture (or if you know who it is), let me know yeah!
