Not the same person, seriously!

Altho' these actors may not actually seem like they were cloned from each other BUT, for me (not sure about you, but do let me know.), I ALWAYS get confused by which of them they were.

In this case, I'm talking about Antonio Banderas and Marton Csokas (on the guys side. We'll get to the girls later.).

Antonio Banderas is most well know for his roles as Zorro, Puss in Boots (from the Shrek fanchise) and portraying El Marichi in Desperado.

And this is Marton Csokas, whom I recently caught in The Voice from the Stone.
Marton can also been seen in the following movies:
And now for the girls. 
Madeleine Stowe and Kaya Scodelario

Madeleine Stowe first caught my attention back in the 90s in movies such as:
12 Monkeys, Unlawful Entry & Last of the Mohicans.

Now tell me HONESTLY that you can tell them apart...

Kaya is of course best known for her role in the Maze Runner franchise. However, she first caught my eye in the movie The Truth About Emanuel back in 2013, which I had reviewed here.

Shamefully/Shamelessly copied by Malaysians

I am now finally able to talk freely about my disdain and absolute lack of respect for the local Media companies (more specifically the TV companies). 

Despite the skills and talents that I'm sure are abundantly available, the decision makers within these TV firms still allow such despicable copy-cat work to pass off as their creative property. (Sure, some would jump to their defense and say that they probably paid the original owners for the use of these logos... riiiiigght...!)

Here are the 3 most blatant and apparent of such examples:
1) NTV7 - a blatant copy of Australia's Seven Network's logo.
 2) TV3 + NTV7's children's program icon - Bananana - another blatant copy, but this time, of Cartoon Network's Bloo. With just a simple change in color, they think they can fool people to think that this was an original creation.

3) RTM's A++ - another blatant copy, but this time, of the Avengers Logo. Lucky for RTM it is a totally irrelevant TV station. If not, we can all bet on Marvel suing the sarong off them.
 Is there any wonder why products of the Old Malaysia* lacked the standard and respect of people like me.

* I am very hopeful that the New Malaysia will bring back some of the shine & luster we had lost in the last 15 years.

My Artwork

This one is one that I had just found while cleaning up. It is a portrait of my wife. If I recall right, I did it while we were just dating back during... OK, I'm just gonna leave it at that and not reveal too much about my age.
