很美的粉紅Bridy - ZESPRI紐西蘭奇異果「國民健康大健檢」活動


週六去參加了"ZESPRI紐西蘭奇異果「國民健康大健檢」活動",我剛看到這個活動時還以為是像萬人崇Bike一樣的活動,所以就與同事各繳了100塊的報名費,結果到了活動前,看了老半天還是不太了解這奇異果到底是甚麼怪活動,我同事一直跟我說是變裝秀,我想說可能是騎腳踏車攀岩 (疑 ?),總之錢都繳了,就去報到領T-Shirt吧。

雖然只睡了三個小時,但是我還是爆肝的在大中午到了大佳河濱公園,同事Leo已經領完東西等我半小時了,等我領完T-Shirt、雜誌、扇子、舒跑後,想說今天終於能收工了,就去和同事坐在旁邊哈啦一下,才聊沒幾句,Leo就叫我看旁邊的兩台粉紅Birdy,於是有了這篇文章。


前面這台是最近新牽的,所以沒什麼改裝,人間肉球、頭燈、尾燈、後袋都與一般的車友差不多,只有粉紅殺人踏板比較有搭。雖然這樣說,但是限量五十台的粉紅Bridy就已經很美了。



這台車的車主(本篇第一張照片),就很有心的把車弄得很有個人風格。



全車最吸引我目光的就是這彩虹熊,真得很可愛,加上休閒的後袋以及吊飾,一整個就是很女性化的車,除此之外,坐墊、踏板也是粉紅色的,走線則是用紅色的搭配。



大盤使用Speed Drive內變大盤,兼顧容易爬坡與平路速度,據車主表示她全車配備都是自己挑的,真是了不起。





這是另一個讓人驚豔的點,很漂亮的粉紅煞車皮,外面還有花朵裝飾,讓人有大心的感覺。


最後放上兩位車主與車的合照,據她們所說,平時都是騎烘爐地(真是好腳力),希望她們有機會可以多跑跑別的地方騎車,這樣可以增進大家的士氣(被那麼可愛的車超過會摔車吧XD)。


因為小弟生性害羞,所以不好意思問聯絡方式,因此沒辦法叫她們參加百客車隊XD,雖然中永和到北投有段距離就是。

PS:若你認識車主的話,方便跟她說我想跟她要照片嗎 ? 我朋友(穿Nalini車衣那位)有與這兩台粉紅Bridy合照,謝謝。


捷安特安全騎乘小叮嚀 - 80元便宜尾燈

有朋友想買腳踏車,所以我帶他去一堆車行看車,到了北投捷安特時,看到了一旁的櫃上擺著一堆小冊子,寫著SAFE RIDE SAFE LIFE,旁邊還有一個尾燈寫特價80元,6/23開始。

因為很便宜我就買回家了XD,裝在我媽的腳踏車上,這樣比反光板安全多了。


尾燈正面與反面

這個全台限量三萬個的尾燈 ,其實就跟一般的尾燈差不了多少(可見平常尾燈賣個兩三百....),除了它會多一個SAFE RIDE SAFE LIFE的小冊子吊在上面,有三種閃爍功能,依序是恆亮、跑馬燈、閃燈。


這是小冊子的正反面,手機拍沒有對到焦,有興趣的人可以自行到捷安特索取。

其實捷安特這個活動是不錯的,一方面可以讓大家很感心,有佛心價的尾燈可買,一方面捷安特可以增加到店的客人,有些人會買了尾燈順便買頭燈或是車帽之類的,少賺一些錢可以增加不少客源,又可以增進社會評價,實在是不錯的活動。

Alteam XBOX 360 無線耳機 IFS-687W

會有這篇文章,是因為在PTT 的XBOX版看到Alteam的人在徵人測試他們的360專用無線耳機,並寫一篇評論。 ptt01 但是我對耳機不能說是有興趣、沒有研究、也沒寫過評論,我想我應該不符合他的需求吧XD,但是有時候我還蠻需要可以直接用耳機接360的。


平常我都是用投影機加5.1喇叭玩,有時候想邊查資料邊玩,就會把360搬到電腦旁邊接LCD螢幕玩,剛開始這樣做的時候,因為我電腦用的5.1喇叭擴大器是接3.5mm的輸入,而360則是紅白梅花頭輸出(或是光纖),沒辦法接聲音出來,直接用梅花頭接喇叭又推不動,只好無聲默默的玩,很沒趣。後來我自己接了一條梅花公對3.5公的轉接線,才解決這個問題,不過之後我都把360放在視聽室玩,就忘記這個問題了。


在PTT看到這個產品後,我覺得這應該還蠻符合我的需求的,於是寫信去問問能不能借測,廠商很快的回信說歡迎,互留資料後過了兩三天,我就在廠商的連絡下去借了這個無線耳機回家。



下面為這個耳機的規格,有些地方寫不太清楚,我只能用猜的。你也可以看PCHome賣場寫的規格。

耳機
右聲道: 2.8MHZ 左聲道:2.3MHz
喇叭:Φ40 mm mylar cone
頻率範圍:30-16,000 Hz
阻抗:32 Ω +- 15%

麥克風
向性:單一指向
感度:-47dB +- 3dB
阻抗:0.68K Ω

有效距離:約10米
電力來源:AAAx 2 顆
電池壽命:48小時
重量:約180克

整個包裝內有,無線耳機本體、耳機座兼紅外線發射端、3.5mm/兩公兩母的梅花音源線、耳機與360手把的連接線、變壓器、AAA電池兩顆、繁體中文說明書、簡體中文保證書。


其中3.5mm/兩公兩母的梅花音源線可以讓你可以在現有 360<->聲音輸出端 的連結中,拉出一條3.5mm音源給耳機用,在紅白頭上分別有印上XBOX R/L、TV R/L,蠻細心的。




拿到這個耳機後,我就先在公司拆箱試用了,耳機的電力來源是兩顆AAA電池,裝在左耳,XBOX麥克風的連接線也是接到左耳,右耳部分有電源開關與音量控制。裝上電池後並不會覺得很重,耳機戴起來也不會有不適感,只是天氣熱時可能會有點悶就是。



在接紅外線發射端時,原本想說很簡單的就電源、音源線接一接就好了,沒想到因為電腦輸出與紅外線發射端輸入都是用3.5mm,所以耳機附的連接線沒辦法用,還好身為一個科技業上班族,隨手就拿來一條姻緣線音源線接上。如果這個無線耳機可以附上3.5mm公對公的音源線應該會更方便使用者,不會在有些狀況下無法使用。



音效部分,我有在玩音響的同事給的評語是「優於AM,但遜於FM」。而我個人的感覺是整體的聲音有點悶悶的,低音不夠沉,人聲還好,高音部分因為也是悶悶的所以不夠亮。與同價格區間的鐵三角耳罩式耳機比起來,這個IFS-687W無線耳機是比不上的。而與iPod的耳機比,IFS-687W因為是包覆住耳朵,所以感覺起來iPod耳機聽起來比較空,低音效果也是IFS-687W較好,但是iPod耳機低音比較沉,也較有顆粒感,Bass聲不會糊在一起,高音也贏 IFS-687W。



IFS-687W在聽音樂時,有時候高音會爆掉,不知道是受限於無線傳輸或是耳機品質 ? 而有個小Bug就是在無聲到有聲時(常常是一首歌結束後,下首歌開始時),有時候會出現像是Over Drive過頭的音量過大,這時候有時也會同時爆音,不曉得是不是因為耳機偵測到沒訊號省電後再開導致 ?



在玩遊戲時,我覺得IFS-687W無線耳機前述的缺點倒是不怎麼有影響,因為我是設定對話從耳麥輸出,遊戲音效還是從喇叭,所以一般人聲在戰況激烈下其實也聽不出來音效的好壞。而麥克風部分我是感覺不出來與XBOX Live上網套件送的耳麥有什麼差別,也許有機會要找認識的連線問問看才知道。



紅外線傳輸部分,接收端在左右兩耳都有,所以不用說一定要正面或是哪一面對著紅外線發射端,而即使在發射端側面或是後面,耳機也還是有聲音(耳機沒訊號就會沒聲音),但在發射端後面就需要有適當的障礙物反射才有聲音,而且通常在紅外發射端後的聲音就會有因干擾而產生的雜音了。在傳輸距離上,只要耳機一端能對到發射端,到十五公尺還是會有聲音的,只是大約超過十公尺就慢慢開始有雜音產生。



基本上,以遊戲用耳麥來說,這個XBOX 360 無線耳機 IFS-687W其實算是還不錯的產品,比起一般幾百塊的耳麥,戴起來的舒適度還有音效都應該有比較好,加上是無線就更有吸引力了。雖然以純聽音樂來說,這個耳機是不太行,但是套句我同事的話「不到兩千給你紅外線傳輸、兩條連接線、變壓器、電池,你能要求音效有多好」,而且他產品定位也不是在聆聽音樂上,市場看來也不是打發燒友,我想應該還是會有玩家為了玩遊戲而買這隻的,畢竟紅外線是無線傳輸上成本最低的技術,所以IFS-687W相對用別的技術的無線耳機,價錢上是相當有優勢的。



結論XD
如果你要聽音樂,同價位的有線耳機會比較好,不然就是多花點錢買高級的無線耳機。
如果只是要玩遊戲用,那這個價位是可以考慮入手這隻IFS-687W耳機的。

有些照片沒貼上來,有興趣可以到相簿去看。

北台灣積分聯賽

看到二輪人辦的這個活動,真的可以說是很感心,台灣雖然曾經是個腳踏車王國,現在的單車風氣也越來越盛行,不過大都還只是著重於休閒娛樂方面,台灣有著培育選手優越的條件,但是亞洲公認的王者卻還是香港的黃金寶,台灣一來政府機關不重視,二來沒有什麼獎金賽事,要靠單車為生實在是很困難,我沒什麼管道可以知道國內單車選手的狀況,但是從肥油貓的站裡看到有些車手都往國外發展去了,這應該算是很明智的選擇吧,台灣政府一直以來都不曾用心培養什麼運動,加上台灣沒什麼職業車隊,職業選手是很難生存的。

在一堆外行人的感嘆後,我還是得說,我很樂見這個台灣第二個有積分制度的比賽單位產生,而且報名費又便宜,我如果有機會的話會去參加目標完賽的XD

下面是北台灣積分聯賽網站首頁所寫的,排版了一下。


自從開始"二輪人"的工作後,一直注意著專業自行車競賽部份,眼見很多有潛質的選手,到了某一階段,都難以避免地因為經濟問題要突然中止選手生涯,面向要將過往的一切努力皆化為烏有的殘酷現實。

After our site " http://www.bikemen.net/ " established and started reporting of events in Taiwan, we have adverted that there are so many high fliers needed to stop as an athlete suddenly after a short period of time, and have to face to the cruel reality - economical problems make their efforts in the passed years all ended in smoke.

台灣雖然稱為自行車王國,但相對亞洲其他地方,業界投放於專業自行車運動部份的比例卻是極少。甚至有短視的業者以籌辦高收費、低/無獎金的比賽來謀取私利,以至沒有廠商、企業願意贊助選手栽培成為全職運動員,讓有潛質的運動員可以得到應有的支援下無顧地進一步提升實力,或出外比賽來增加大賽經驗。所以令他們往往無法與其他地區的選手抗衡。

Although Taiwan has been praised as the Kingdom of Cycling, but compared with other districts in Asia, the resources invested to this sport from the field here in the passed few years was so less. Even that, the main, short sighted organizer(s) of events just wanted to get money from riders asap ( by high attendance fee but low and/or without cash prizes for winners ), this did make no factories and enterprises want to support riders to be full-time athletes, which can let riders to further upgrade their strength freenessly, or to attend overseas events for increasing experiences of competition in big events. That’s why riders of Taiwan can’t have counterpoise in many international events.

其實這個地方,硬體十分完整,要多長的路有多長,要多高的山有多高,唯獨缺少上文所提到的要素,這,確實可惜。

Actually, Taiwan can be an excellent place for sport of cycling with great hardwares - endless roads and high mountains, but unfortunately, just lack of the most needs - softwares, partly as mentioned above. What a pity it is !

或許大家會說,台灣騎自行車的人相較其他地方來說,應該是一個自行車運動很發達的國家。然而,很多人卻誤會了 “自行車運動” 及 “以自行車為交通工具的休閒娛樂” 之間的分別。

Maybe we can say, compared with the districts around, cycling sport in Taiwan is well developed. However, there are so many people misunderstood and supposed it’s no difference between " Sport of cycling " and " Bikes used for transportation and entertainments ".

打職棒的選手是從事棒球運動,很少人會用棒球來作休閒娛樂之用,反倒是大家很熱烈的觀賞賽事。我誠心希望有一天,專業自行車運動也能得到廣大民眾支持及熱愛。

Professional baseball players are engaging the sport, although number of people used baseball for entertainment is not as many as cycling, most of us loved to watch their events. We wholeheartedness to wish professional sport of cycling can also be loved by numerous of people as they have.

我們 二輪人 的一眾夥伴,以及有著同一方向的前輩們,抱盡一點微力來推廣自行車運動的心,誠心在這裡為大家帶來全新的 “北台灣積分聯賽”,希望透過廢棄不必要的華麗頒獎台,但以低廉的報名費,高額的獎金 (高達 40 萬新台幣),及我們認真、謙虛及彼此尊重態度,令台灣自行車運動愛好者,有一較易負擔及公平切磋的平台。

All the members of http://www.bikemen.net/, now in league with those predecessors have the same thoughts of promoting the sport of cycling, sincerely for you all here, a brand new event "Tour de North Taiwan". Hoping that by disusing of over decorated podium, but with low attendance fee, have/high cash prizes ( totally up to NTW$ 400,000 in one stage ), and by our working attitude with conscientiousness, humble and respecting, to let all the cycling lovers in Taiwan can have a platform which is much more easy to afford, to improve oneself through equitable competitions.

最後,也希望得到大家的支持及提供寶貴意見,讓這個比賽能夠更為完美。

Finally, for the ” Tour de North Taiwan ” can be accomplished, we sincerely hoping that you can support us by attendance and giving precious opinions.

單車夢

Hungarian cyclists hold up their bicycleHungarian cyclists hold up their bicycles in the City Park, the 'Varosliget' of Budapest 22 September 2007 during a demonstration called Critical Mass on the occasion of the European Car Free Day. Critical Mass is a cycling event in which a large number of cyclists ride on the streets.

上圖為匈牙利的布達佩斯所辦的單車活動【單車臨界量】(Critical Mass),在台灣個比較好聽的名字叫【微笑單車】,雖然活動名稱不同,但都是單車族為爭取路權而辦的活動,看看上面那張圖,放眼望去有多少的單車被車友們舉起,希望能藉此讓更多人知道單車族的心聲,希望能為人身安全而增取路權,希望能以單車降低對大自然的汙染。

我只是個小小單車族,每個月所辦的微笑單車上路也都還未有時間參加過,不過看到了AOL台灣的這篇【全球單車,微笑上路】後,也很期盼台灣的微笑單車上路活動可以辦的起來,讓大家知道單車族的心聲。

也許對於台灣來說,單車的路權只是我們的夢,不過我想,永不放棄希望,即使當權者無視單車族的存在,至少曾經努力過。

Expansion Costs


The local manger of a nearby Stone Mine has recently contacted the kingdom advisors to ask permission to upgrade his Mine by an additional 70 square metres on top of the already built 140 square metres.

After reviewing his request the Council declined to allow him to upgrade 70sqm, but instead opted that 60sqm would be enough, and that they would offer a ten percent deduction on the cost of any materials brought from the royal warehouse custody not including Tools since they are brought in a constant supply.

Now this manager has been running the mine for so long he is considered a Huckster in the eyes of the council, so every additional squared metre costs him 120 wood, 60 stones and 12 tools.

Buying from the royal warehouse these materials cost him 24¢τ for each fathom of wood, and the same for Stone, although he can get this from the Mine itself. Tools are priced at 12¢τ each, although he already receives a five percent discount on these from buying at a constant level for use in the Mines.

So he already has a supply of Stone from his Mine, but needs to buy enough Tools and Wood for this upgrade in size.

He also needs to hire constructors to build this extension who charge at a rate of 1,200¢τ per squared metre.

Once the construction is complete he also needs to hire six new employees at a charge of 2,000¢τ each.

Question:
How much in ¢τ would the manager need to spend in total for the construction of his mine extension?

Remember to take into account any discounts and the amount of materials he actually needs.

____________________________________

upgrade 60sqm , 1sqm=120 wood, 60 stones and 12 tools.

so need
wood = 60x120=7200 unit
stones can supply by self so didn't need to count it.
tools = 60x12= 720 unit

the price
wood = 7200x24x90% = 155520¢τ
tools = 720x12x95% = 8208¢τ
extension charge = 60x1200= 72000¢τ
hire employees = 6x2000 = 12000¢τ

Total= 247728¢τ

Fruity Fun

During a normal day in the medieval market town of Maldon a regular visitor named Adela makes her rounds to purchase supplies for her family, using the money her husband had earned at work on the plains a farmers cattle a few days before.

She could not afford much been that they were a poor family, but it was enough for them to feed themselves. Been that they could only afford meat as a treat on rare occasions they most often brought fruit, and had became very fond of apples.

After searching for a short while she found a Fruit Stall selling Apples, Grapes, Nuts, Berries and much more all with a similar price range, and decent quality. Usually you would find them to be slightly rotted, and on sale for a cheaper price.

Looking at the apples she found them to each have a different price range; Red Apples were 7¢τ, Yellow Apples were 6¢τ and Green, 9¢τ.After checking her pockets she brought enough to last a few days, knowing she could make Fretoure's for one day of that week.

She brought six yellow apples, nine green apples, and five red apples from the stall owner, and continued walking around the market for a short time. When she had finished she proceeded to walk home with her basket of apples in hand.

On her way through the streets she came across a friend, Tristana, who also happened to be fond of apples.. but she hated Yellow Apples, claiming them to not be as sweet as the other colours, She had just been to a stall herself, but was forced to buy two Yellow Apples been that the stall only had a small number of Red and Green.

Tristana offered to trade her two yellow apples for one red apple of Adela's, which was graciously accepted, after which they departed to go their separate ways. On the way home Adela ate one of her newly traded Yellow Apples.

Question:
When Adela got home, how much would she have spent on the apples she brought back with her?

_____________________________________________

Red Apples = 7¢τ
Yellow Apples = 6¢τ
Green Apples = 9¢τ

Adela bought 6Y 9G 5R from store so = 6x6+9x9+5x7=152¢τ

Tristana trade 2Y for 1R, so now is 8Y 9G 4R=8x6+9x9+4x7=157¢τ

Adela eat 1Y , so finaly she brought 7Y 9G 4R to home.

the answer is 7x6+9x9+4x7=151¢τ

Re:台塑芝山加油站歧視機車族

前文請看這邊

在六月五號晚上寄出信給台塑後,過了幾天原本以為無下文了,沒想到今天收到了回信,算起來是三個工作天就回信,效率算是不錯了,雖然內容依然是很官方,不過至少比沒有還好,下面是台塑給我的回信。

二、芝山加油站為本公司加盟站,本公司無權干涉其促銷活動及贈品內容,然對您反應的機車與汽車加油贈品有所差別,本公司派員瞭解後,業者係基於成本考量,因機車加油區人事成本、設備維護成本及耗材相較汽車加油區為高,所以贈品贈送的門檻才會有所差別。為符合您的期待與要求,對於贈品的問題,本公司會再跟業者協調,盡量要求機車汽車加油贈品一致。

What Am I?


I am seen as larger then I really am with these things on my head,

I am brown in colour often with a shade of white or black spots,

I live in the wild in the cold and chase penguins for fun,

When in the season I race with my friends following the stars,

Pulling with us a sledge around the world from chimney to chimney,

Oh what a weight we have to pull each year!

Question:
What am I?

The Guard's Password


There was once a poor man, thin and dressed in rags who desperately needed work to earn himself enough to eat.

One day he was wandering across the market place in search of food dropped by the various shoppers looking to find produce from the local stall owners.

However what he found wasn't food, but he overheard a rumour that a local farmer was drowning himself in Beer at a nearby Brewery and complaining that one of his employees had left to work elsewhere for a better amount of pay.

Not one to turn down any possibly of finding employment the man began his walk towards the Brewery, only to be dropped at the door by a guard who quickly turned him away for not knowing the required password to enter.

Not to be discouraged the man hid behind a nearby bush just around the corner and listened waiting for other guests to the Brewery to arrive, one by one.

The first person to visit was told by the guard, "Twelve" to which the traveler quickly responded with the word "Six", and was allowed to enter.

Shortly after a second person came, also dressed in rags like our friend looking for a job. The guard said to this man "Six" and was given the answer of "Three" to be granted entry to the Brewery.

A short time later a third came, this time in Merchants Robes. With a grin on his face the guard said "Five", to which the Merchant responded with "Four".

Finally, confident he knew enough to figure out the password, the man came out of his hiding place, walked around the corner and knocked on the door. “Seven” said the guard.

Question: What should the man answer the guard in order to be let in?

____________________________________________


Twelve->Six
123456

Five->Four
1234

Six->Three
123

so..."Seven" should answer Five.

Crate Counting


A young lad named Petri has just recently become of age to begin working to help secure his family's future.

He finds work in a nearby storehouse which specializes in the delivery of fruit related products to other towns and cities.

His first assignment is to place a range of products into crates ready to be delivered to a town in the far north of the country.

With this been such a long trip he also needs to account for a thin layer of herbs on the inside of the crates to keep the fruit fresh for when it arrives in town.

Taking the measurements of the crates from the outsides he finds them to be approximately 20x20, and 30cm in height.Note that the crates themselves are three centimetres thick all around, and he has to leave 2cm in each crate for the Herbs.

This leaves 15x15, and 25cm in height.

He has Apples, Grapes and Nuts to fit into the crates.
The Apples measure 3x3x3.
The Grapes & Nuts measure 1x1x1.

He has 1400 Apples, 10500 Grapes, and 5400 Nuts to pack into Crates. All Crates must be packed separately with different fruits; These fruits cannot be cut in any way and must be packed whole.

Question: How many Crates does Petri need to pack all the fruit in?

__________________________________

for Apples : one crates can pack (15/3)x(25/3)=40 unit
for Grapes & Nuts :one crates can pack 15x25=375 unit

so the answer is 1400/40+10500/375+5400/375=78 Crates

大陸有趣物 Part 2

剛剛翻相簿,整理了幾張在大陸時拍的相片,貼上來分享。
這邊有之前寫的Part 1可以看。


似乎很先進 這是在餐館拍到的,看起來是消毒後再包裝的乾淨餐具。上次到大陸時並沒有看到這樣子的東東,看來是新推出的,原本餐具是從看起來不太乾淨的桶子拿出來給你,現在是從同一個桶子拿出包好的餐具給你,感覺上是比較好啦.......不過看看包裝上,遠紅外線是拿來消毒的嗎 ? 我是不瞭解啦,看在乾淨的份上,我還蠻能接受這項改變的。





似曾相似 又是似曾相似的產品,是左邊學右邊又或是右邊學左邊,看官們自行解讀吧XD




上吊的熊 在蘇州觀前街拍到的熊娃娃,看起來很像在上吊 -_- ,我拍了照片後,就有一對情侶來要買這隻了,我一直很好奇這麼大隻要怎麼帶回家XD




腳踏車也有交通號誌 這是在蘇州十全街拍到的,別人腳踏車都有交通號誌了,台灣的腳踏車還只是政客作秀用,唉。自行車道一堆不是崎嶇不平就是下雨會變成殺人步道的材質,怎麼比的上別人啊。




台灣神奇棉花糖 台灣神奇棉花糖。是的,套句台灣記者的話,在大陸什麼東西只要扯上台灣就很"",還有台灣香腸、台灣綿綿冰....etc,也有很多店是標榜來自台灣,或是風靡台灣什麼的,這算是另類的哈台風嗎XDDDDD

台塑芝山加油站歧視機車族

因為上班會經過的關係,我通常都在台塑芝山加油站加油,大約一年半前吧,那時候加油還是滿100送衛生紙的,不過有一天就突然掛了布條寫滿100送水、滿200才送衛生紙,自此之後,我再也沒有拿過衛生紙了。後來有一天,我發現了汽車加油島那邊寫了"加現金50元送礦泉水乙瓶,刷卡贈品減半",這樣就怪了,為何汽、機車的待遇不同 ?

機車一向就被人歧視,我想因為當權者不是自己開車就是別人開車載他,永遠不知道民生疾苦,不是說"騎機車易生交通事故",就是說"機車退出騎樓/人行道",卻不知汽車肇事機率比機車高(北市警資料新聞資料),也不知道機車車位數量完全不符需求,而近來郝市長看到道路規劃無法負荷機車流量,居然是要大家別騎機車,而不是想辦法改善交通,這不是何不食肉靡嗎 ?

政府永遠抱怨不完,回到正題抱怨芝山加油站。不曉得是芝山加油站給機車加的油是劣質品,所以利潤比較低,贈品要減半,又或是芝山加油站認為機車都是刷卡,贈品需要減半 ? 為何芝山加油站要歧視機車族呢 ? 有沒有人能給我個答案,謝謝。

機車沒有路權,被政府排擠就算了,誰叫我們不開"3000CC小車",連加油都要被排擠,我們又不是沒有付錢,為何要遭受次等待遇 ?

[email protected] Wall

DSC015526/1晚上與友人去The Wall看張懸的表演,票上寫八點開始,七點到時已經排了約100人的隊了,站著等等等等到八點進場後,又繼續站著等等等,等到約八點四十,表演終於開始。



聽著張懸帶著沙啞的嗓音,總覺得跟我在CD裡聽到的聲音是不一樣的,而且高音總覺得是用喊的而不是用唱的,有點勉強的感覺。正在思考到底是唱片的聲音有修還是歌手本身的問題,此時聽到第二首歌,很明顯的好幾次高音唱不上去而破音,我才發現原來不是專輯有修。



隨著節目進行,我也有點知道張懸為何會唱到破音了,她在台上邊拿著一瓶啤酒邊說她還沉浸在過生日的氣氛中,我在台下也可以猜想的出來,生日玩的很high以至於破嗓、聲音沙啞,我想旁人是可以理解的,但是表現得不好還要抱怨舞台下的觀眾很冷.......這我實在是無言以對。身為一個歌手,明知有收費的表演卻要把喉嚨搞到沙啞,除了不尊重自己的專業與身分,也非常的不尊重前來看她表演的人,更何況這是個有收費的表演。



DSC01551聽到最後,唱的比較好的歌大概只有兩首用假音唱的慢歌(還是叫抒情歌?),聽起來的水準可與專輯比擬,剩下用真音唱的歌,只要高音部分都表現得不好,雖然後來是沒有再破音了啦,算是還不會太誇張。



加上排隊已經連續站了三個多小時,其實結束時我已經不想等安可就閃了,不過看到現場喊安可時,情緒是今天兩個小時表演來前所未有的熱情(之前的歡呼大概都不到五秒...Orz),加上人很多又出不去,就留下來繼續聽,沒想到布幕一拉開就看到張懸在台上抽菸,讓我愣了一下.....撇開我對讓人吸二手菸的不滿,在密閉公共空間抽菸是違法的,雖然是不會有人去舉發,不過我想她本人也應該不知道這件事吧...唉。


總之,扣除高音唱不上去和沙啞之外,這次表演以聽歌來說是還可以接受的,不過與其花錢站老半天還要祈禱這次歌手的狀況要好,場面別太冷等等,我覺得還是聽專輯比較穩 -_-

btw,the wall的pa控的不太好,常常都是各種樂器轟在一起,又不是在搖頭party ....
