Kart: beginning

Filed under: Lang:한국어,Subj:Car — Jemyoung Leigh @ 10:14

고카트를 혼자서 만들기로 결심했다.

처음 해 보는 것이기 때문에 구조도 매우 간단하게 할 것이다. 엔진은 50cc 정도를 생각하고 있다.

지금의 계획으로는 현가장치도 전혀 없고, 조향장치도 최대한 간단하게 할 것이고, 무조건 간단하게 최고로 간단하게 만들 것이다.

나중에 기회가 되어 또 만든다면 그 때는 이 것 저 것 생각해서 여러가지 달고 해야지.

이번에 고려하지 않을 것들:

  • 현가장치
  • 후륜 Differential
  • 변속기

고민중인 것들:

  • 전륜 제동장치
  • 클러치
  • 바퀴의 크기 (속도와 관련이 있음)

Crazy weather

Filed under: Lang:English,Subj:Christianity,Subj:Life — Jemyoung Leigh @ 17:55

The weather is crazy now.

Asia is suffering from too much water:

  • People died by rainfall in Korea
  • Scores of people died by rainfall in Japan
  • A thousand and hundreds of people died of typhoon in China
  • China also had an earth quake recently
  • Earthquake and tsunami killed scores of people in Indonesia and the countries around.

And the other side of the earth is suffering from water shortage:

  • Scores of people died of heat in Europe
  • North America is also suffering under the heat
  • Brazil’s famous fall has lowest water level ever in 70 years
  • South America is suffering too much snowfall

One another place of the earth is dying of the fire – Israel and USA are attacking Lebanon. They are killing and beating Lebanon just because they do not have any weapon of mass destruction such as nuclear bomb.

So many people are dying here, there, and everywhere. People kill others. The nature kills people. The earth kills people. The weather kills people.

Crazy people. Crazy nature. Crazy Earth. Crazy weather. Crazy everything. Crazy anything. Crazy madness.

Because the end is near. The day of Christ is coming closer.

Audi A6

Filed under: Lang:English,Subj:Car — Jemyoung Leigh @ 17:06

Yesterday, I got a chance to get on Audi A6 and A6 Allroad.

Really good car. It is powerful.

But I realised that this is too big for me. I will not buy this. I want to buy Audi A4 or TT.

Tokyo Drift

Filed under: Lang:English,Subj:Car,Subj:Culture — Jemyoung Leigh @ 9:30

I saw the film of the Fast and Furious – Tokyo Drift this morning. Well, I don’t require for well made plot or story from this kind of movies. And of course, it does not have.

All the series of the Fast and the Furious could and should be called advertisement of Japanese cars. First(the fast and the furious) and second(2 fast 2 furious) films showed us American Muscles but in this film, I cannot see running American Muscle.

Strictly speaking, this film is the best in the aspect of driving fun. I felt like that I was watching the movie edition of Initial D. Running down the narrow mountain ways with hair pin curves is the key factor and the only factor why we see the animation. The last racing is just like that in Initial D, and the city driving scene is like that of Driven.

What I like most in this movie is the ending scene. Vin Diesel shows himself. What I hate most in this movie is that the girl Neela is not pretty at all. I though she is Michael Jackson. I say that every movie maker must cast a pretty girl for major actress. It is not an option.

I am a bit proud of Sung Kang who played Han. He is Korean American actor.

Let me say one thing. Drift and Counter steering are different. Well, Counter steering must be based on drift but they are not same. Drifting is slipping the rear wheels and Counter Steering is to steer to the reverse when drifting. For an instance, steering left when you want to go right is counter steering. In drift, counter steering and slip turn is included. Using parking break is low level drift, and using the weight balance is high level drift.

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind

Filed under: Lang:English,Subj:Culture — Jemyoung Leigh @ 10:01

This morning I saw ‘Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind‘ which is just known as ‘Eternal Sunshine’ in Korea. I would like to give five stars to this movie. (Five is maximum.)

It is a science fiction movie but it is not important. They meet, love, fight, depart, erase the memory, and meet again. This maybe the eternal circle and eternal sunshine.

I have so many words to say but I will not. This movie is not for understanding but for feeling. Feel it more than words.

This movie has two stories. Main story is of Joel Barish and Clementine Kruczynski, played by Jim Carrey and Kate Winslet relatively. And the side story is of Dr. Howard and Mary Svevo. Kirsten Dunst played the Mary. And among all the characters, Kirsten is prettiest.

Despite of all things, Joel and Clementine decided to start again their relationship from the beginning. I love this movie.

Empty House

Filed under: Lang:English,Subj:Culture — Jemyoung Leigh @ 9:33

“Empty House” is the movie by Kideok Kim. It is good movie. But one thing I cannot understand – a homeless has a cool BMW bike.

empty

How about this scene? The husband hugs his wife but she is kissing another man.

How can you say that your world and understanding are true? Maybe true, maybe not. This picture tells us more than thousand words.

This movie is good. It is good for you to see this movie.

르망 24시

Filed under: Lang:한국어,Subj:Car — Jemyoung Leigh @ 18:53

자동차 경주 가운데 르망 24시라는 것이 있다. 영어로 The 24 hours of Le Mans라고 하는데, 프랑스의 르망이라는 도시 주변에 있는 임시 서킷을 24시간동안 도는 경기다.

속도의 규정은 없다. 최소 속도라던가 최고 속도의 제한은 없다. 가끔씩 주유라던가 임시 정비를 위해서 멈추기도 한다. 운전자는 3명까지 있을 수 있다. 이 경기는 24시간동안 누가 많이 달렸는지를 봐서 승자를 결정한다고 한다. 그러면 주어진 시간 내에 조금이라도 더 많이 달려야 우승하기 때문에 당연히 빠르게 속도를 내서 달린다. 300Km/h가 넘는 것은 우습고 400Km/h를 넘기는 경우도 종종 있다고 한다.

출전자들 가운데 상당수는 24시간을 채우지 못하고 차가 퍼져버린다. 제조사의 내구성과 성능을 고루고루 시험할 수 있는 최고의 경주라고 할 수 있다. 꼴찌를 하더라고 24시간을 완주했다는 것 자체만으로도 대단한 칭찬을 받아야 하는 경주다.
최근 기록을 보면 아우디가 6회 출전하여 5회 우승을 했다. 그런데 우승하지 못했던 한 회를 보니 아우디와 같은 계열에서 아우디 차를 갖고 출전을 했던 것이다. 결국 출전자의 팀명이 다른 것이지 아우디 차였다. 정말 대단한 제조사라고 아니 할 수가 없다.

지금 내가 얘기하고자 하는 건 그게 아니다. 일단 욕부터 하고 가자.

아우디, 이 미친 놈들!

올해 아우디가 출전한 차는 디젤엔진을 장착한 차량이었다. 세상에, 자동차 경주에, 그 것도 죽음의 속도를 들락 거려야 하는 곳에 경유차를 내보내다니! 분명 아우디는 제정신이 아니다. 미친 것이 틀림 없다.

하지만 내가 위에서 미친 놈들이라고 한 것은 이 것을 놓고 말한 것이 아니다. 아우디의 디젤차가 포르쉐, 페라리 등의 모든 가솔린 차량을 우습게 제치고 1등을 한 것이다. 이번에는 서킷을 380 바퀴 돌아 24시간 동안 5187Km를 주행했다고 한다.

모든 가솔린 경주차를 우습게 제치는 디젤차를 만들다니 아우디의 기술력이 미친 거다. 아우디의 설계자들과 제작자들이 미친 것이 틀림없다. 아우디 정말 놀랍다. 정말 대단하다. 다시 한 번 욕을 해야겠다.

아우디, 이 미친 새끼들!

Wimbledon

Filed under: Lang:English,Subj:Culture — Jemyoung Leigh @ 9:02

Wimbledon is one of the greatest tennis tournament in the world and it is held in London.

Kirsten Dunst who played Mary Jane Watson in the film spider man played  Lizzie Bradbury, one of the most promising tennis girl. As I always realise, pretty and beautiful heroine is one of the key factor for the success of the movie. Well, I don’t sure that she is beautiful, but I know she is pretty and cute. In my aspect, Kirsten Dunst pushed up this movie one higher level.

Paul Bettany who played Peter Colt in this movie is well known English actor. He played in A Kight’s Tale, A Beautiful Mind, and in The Da Vinci Code. Well at least, his English accent (not american) is beautiful.

Absolutely, Wimbledon is romantic comedy, my favourite one. I am sorry to say that it is not so well-made film. But it is not garbage. I think it is good just because it is romantic comedy. I love almost all romantic comedy films.

It is not worthy to buy DVD, but is worthy enough to see. I think Love Actually is the most worthy to buy DVD.

Donnie Darko

Filed under: Lang:English,Subj:Culture — Jemyoung Leigh @ 18:50

I saw this movie – Donnie Darko. It is psychological thriller and low budget movie. I could say many things about this movie but I will not. Please look up WIKIPEDIA.

Actually I don’t care about the time travel. I thought the movie IF ONLY starred Paul Nicholls and Jennifer Love Hewitt. In IF ONLY, the actor choose to die instead of the actress, his love. I love this movie for its beautiful love story and sweet songs. I love this beautiful love story. But how long will she remember about the sacrifice and love of him for her?

In the conclusion of the movie, she decided to leave and go her own way after six months later. Yes, her love expires in six months. In other aspect, his love becomes nothing in six months.

In Donnie Darko, the actress dies before just like in IF ONLY. And the actor finally dies instead of her just like in IF ONLY.

But there are two major and important differences. Ian did not roll back the time but Donnie did. Samantha knows the sacrifice of her love but Gretchen even does not know him.

What is the good of his sacrifice if his love, sacrifice or even his existence itself is not known? In the last scene, Gretchen came to go along his house to see him dead. She has no idea who he is.

I am so sad about that. His love and sacrifice are useless in some aspect.

Ah, Jena Malone, the actress of Gretchen Ross is cute.

Lustful scholar

Filed under: Lang:English,Subj:Culture — Jemyoung Leigh @ 10:13

A few days ago, I saw a movie whose name is “음란서생” in Korean and it can be translated into “Lustful Scholar”.

This is comic movie and to my sorrow, it has little probability. The queen – well exactly speaking, the number one royal concubine – playing harlot is impossible.

Let me talk about the background first. The historical background is Joseon Dynasty. There are three major characters in the movie. Two are noble men, and the other is royal concubine, who is beloved most by the King.

The low probabilities:

  • Co-operation between the two families of conflict is almost impossible or difficult.
  • Honour and dignity are worthier than their lives for noble men of Joseon era. And they write porn novels and paint porn pictures? No, it is not possible.
  • Queen loves another man and sleeps together?
  • The servants of King, the noble men, made the queen the model of porn picture?
  • The king knows that the queen had sex with the noble man, and the he did not kill them all. He even just keep her near, and sent him afar. There was no such gracious king not only in Joseon but also in the whole world of entire history.

Well, well, well. Above all, it is comic movie. If you know Korean language and understand the current cultures in Korea about internet and computer, you may feel it so funny and interesting.

But what I love most is not the comic but the romance and love – the illogical and non-sense love with almost zero probability and possibility.

See the translation of the almost ending part. The king tries to kill or make the writer of porn a eunuch. In the big threat, the writer confess to the queen (before the king)!

Writer: Dear queen. The flowers were in full blossom outside. You were kidding me. You were very pleased kidding me. Then suddenly a bee flew in and I drove it out. It was really, really good day. I am sorry that you have been always in my heart and in my mind from that time every single moment. But I had lustful images in my mind – which I cannot know it is love or lustful desire. How can I easily call it love and say I love you that I even don’t know? And more of it, how can I say I love you that I cannot live when I say I love you? I just, just have it in my heart and hope to be with you in the next world.

Queen: I will be with you there. That is it then.

You can read the original Korean scripture below:

작가: 정빈마마, 밖은 꽃이 만발하였습니다. 마마는 저를 놀리셨죠. 그러면서 즐거워하셨습니다. 갑자기 벌이 한 마리 날아들었고 제가 그 걸 쫓아 드렸죠. 참, 참 좋은 날이었습니다. 황공하옵게도, 그 날부터 한 시도 마음 한 곳에서, 제 머리 속에서 떠나 본 적이 없습니다. 다만 마음 속에 음란한 상상이 자리잡아 그 것이 사랑인지 아니면 음란한 욕심인지 분간이 안되었습니다. 분간이 아니되는데 어찌 사랑이라 쉽게 말하겠나이까? 게다가 사랑이라 말하면 목숨을 부지할 수 없다는 데 어찌 사랑이라 말하겠나이까? 다만 가슴속에 담아 저승에서 만나뵈올 뿐입니다.

정빈: 그러겠습니다. 그러면 되었습니다.

Secret Garden

Filed under: Lang:English,Subj:Food — Jemyoung Leigh @ 23:40

Yesterday, I went to Mr. Pizza with JK Yoon. We had SECRET GARDEN, the pizza whose subtitle is “made for women”.

The brief conclusion is “WONDERFUL”. The description from the homepage is “Premium naturalism pizza for women seeking well-being trend. It is made with the most popular salad toppings chosen in ‘Women’s pizza contest’ – fresh vegetables, chicken breasts,soft pumpkin mousse and cheddar cheese.”

And I am totally satisfied with the taste of this pizza. Actually, I am satisfied with almost all pizzas of Mr. Pizza. In my taste, Mr. Pizza is most delicious, and Domino is the second.

But, Mr. Pizza has one different company culture. They are not kind. I visited so many Mr. Pizza restaurants, and all of them are not kind. Please don’t misunderstand. They are not kind, and they are not unkind. Well, it is not easy to say. If most kind is at one tip, and most unkind is at another tip, so-called “not kind” or “not unkind” is at about the centre.

Many girls love Pizza Hut, but I think and believe that Pizza Hut is nothing but garbage.

Please, if you are in Korea, try and taste the Secret garden. I love it, and I am sure that you will love it too.

Audi New A4

Filed under: Lang:English,Subj:Car — Jemyoung Leigh @ 17:36

Yesterday and the day before yesterday, I was able to ride on Audi New A4 with its 1.8L turbo engine.

In Korea, its price is about 60,000USD while Chevrolet Aveo(1.5 SOHC engine) is 15,000USD. And I found A4 is worth its price and Aveo also is worth its price.

Its acceleration is powerful and tender. And because of its tiptronic, there is no shifting shock. A4’s tiptronic has seven levels of transmission.

I was very satisfied with Audi New A4. But my dream car is not A4. Guess.

Porsche 911? No. Ferarri Enzo? No. Lamborghini Murciélago? No.

My real dream car is Audi TT 3.2 Turbo Quattro. I love the first generation and the second generation which is about to come out.
