Bobi Kurtz’s Quadruple Release

Bobi Kurtz’s Quadruple Release


Nesianetwork.idJakarta, 1st of March 2024 – .Bobi Kurtz’ self-titled EP has been completed with his quadruple release today. Violet Snow, What a Life, Green Clouds, and Jose Human are readily available to listen to on your favourite music platform.

Violet Snow is a ballad presenting a melodramatic story of the sudden end of a relationship. The lyrics and arrangement of Violet Snow were designed to paint a picture of someone who experiences a broken heart in cold weather.

What a Life is a lively and joyous tune, but contains an underlying message. It expands on Bobi’s religious upbringing and “tragic” love life during his teenage years -- complemented by sports and art references from his earlier years. 

Green Clouds is a story set in a meadow where two lovers are lying down on a slightly overcast afternoon – a place and condition where they are happy to be alongside each other all day. They engage in an intimate interaction as their minds wander into even more eclectic, dreamy places.

Lastly, Jose Human opens with a tale from a Caucasian man called Buster Jeffers, a Vietnam War veteran who struggles to fit into modern society without being vilified. As the song progresses, it will embark on multiple stories from Tyler Farrokh, Terome Stenson, and Joe Gonzalez.

“Some of the songs in this EP were written as far back as 2017, and they finally came to see the light of day. I think they’re different from one another, but each still has the soul of Bobi Kurtz,” Bobi explains.

“These songs are deeply personal – and although not every tune is directly telling a personal story of mine, they are of ideas or feelings that are ingrained in me.”

“For instance, Jose Human wasn’t easy to write in the slightest. But I think as a person looking from afar who has deep concern about the dynamic, I’d like to write a song to pay my respect to the people oppressed. Of course, I’m in no way shape or form to lecture people, nor was it ever the intention, but I just want to send my sympathy towards them.”

“Green Clouds and Violet Snow are two songs that depict polarizing feelings that I’ve experienced, which are elation and heartbreak.”

“Meanwhile, What a Life is an homage to my childhood to my 20’s – where everything was dreamy, puzzling and confusing. It’s not that it left a bad taste in my mouth, but I reckon it was vastly different from what most people went through. I tell you what, though, it certainly shaped my unorthodox perspective of life,” Bobi elaborated.

Honest Review Korean Movies The Villagers, When Ma Dong Seok Becomes a Counseling Teacher Reveals the Case of a Missing Student

Honest Review Korean Movies The Villagers, When Ma Dong Seok Becomes a Counseling Teacher Reveals the Case of a Missing Student - In 2018, Ma Dong Seok appeared again in a thriller drama genre film with an action flavor. The film titled The Villagers aired on November 7, 2018 with a duration of 99 minutes and managed to get a gross income of US$2.8 million.

The Korean film The Villagers is directed by Im Jin-sun for producer Seo Jong-hae and the screenplay is written by Im Jin-sun.

The line-up of actors and actresses is not overwhelming, there is Ma Dong-seok as Yeok Gi-cheol, Kim Sae-ron as Kang Yoo-jin, Lee Sang-yeob as Ji Sung, Jang Gwang as Ki-tae, Oh Hee-joon as Dong -soo, Jin Seon-kyu as Byung-doo, Shin Se-hwi as Han Soo-yeon. The Villagers movie trailer.

Storyline of the movie The Villagers
Yeok Gi-cheol, played by Ma Dong-seok, has just left his job as a boxing school instructor, he then moves to a relatively remote village and registers for a vacancy as a BK teacher at a female-only high school.

His job was mostly to collect SPP fees from late or unpaid students, until one day he saw bully activity on a girl who was carrying a missing persons poster.

It turns out that the student Kang Yoo-jin played by Kim Sae-ron is also included in the list of late paying SPP, and a name that turns out to be his friend Han Soo-yeon played by  Shin Se-hwi who has "left home" for a long time.

Here lies the mystery, did Han Soo Yeon really leave home or was she kidnapped?

The thing that I have to give a thumbs up from The Villagers movie and many Korean movies in general is the many twists in one movie, it's like we are taken to the groove already knowing who is good and bad but then it is diverted with another twist even until the last minute, very interesting.

Poster Korean Movies The Villagers

That's my impression on the film that I initially underestimated with the simplicity of the plot that was developed at the beginning. But getting to the middle and towards the end of the plot twists a lot.

Kang Yoo-jin does not give up to keep looking for where his friend went, the first clue is a logo on the packaging of a match which after being traced is a night club. He was desperate to get in, luckily he was followed by the teacher Yeok Gi-cheol and saved from the gangsters.

The problem gets more complicated, when one of the young teachers who is still an intern at the same school turns out to be a pornography maniac, he installs a hidden camera in the women's toilet and manages to kidnap Kang Yoo Jin under the pretext of helping him find his friend.

The tension became more tense, when it was known that the young apprentice teacher was the son of the school principal, and this school principal was fighting in the local regent election.

There are a lot of things, finally, at the end we know that the perpetrator of Han Soo-yeon's murder is his own school principal. How is the story? one day when he felt he needed money, he joined as an entertainer in a cafe and the guest was the school principal.

He got a sick call from his grandmother, he meant to ask for permission to go home but it was not given, it turned out that he recognized the man as his school principal, not wanting his shame to be revealed he ordered his men to clean up and Han Soo Yeon mysteriously disappeared.

It was only revealed later, when Kang Yoo Jin was also considered dangerous for the school principal who was nominating the regent, he would be eliminated as well, the severity of his son getting involved again. The teacher Yeok Gi-cheol acts with a background as a boxing coach and athlete he managed to save his student.

His proximity to a young police officer who still upholds justice can finally reveal this scandal and mysterious murder. The film The Villagers, which aired on November 7, is one of the 7 Korean films released in November 2018 that are interesting to watch, along with Ode to the Goose (November 8), The Wrath (November 8), Unfinished (November 14), Happy Together ( November 15), Beautiful Days (November 21) and Unstoppable (November 22) which also stars Ma Dong Seok.

Overall, this movie is very good, recommended to watch especially for those of you who are fans of Ma Dong Seok. Happy watching.

Even though Leto knows that the opportunity is an elaborate trap set by his enemies, Leto brings along the Bene Gesserit concubine, Lady Jessica (Rebecca Ferguson), his son and heir to the throne, Paul (Timothée Chalamet), as well as several of Arrakis' most trusted advisors. 

Leto takes over a spice mining operation, which is dangerous due to the presence of giant sandworms. A bitter betrayal leads Paul and Jessica to the Fremen, a deep desert home to the native people of Arrakis.

Review and Explanation of the Ending of the 2021 DUNE Film

Many people say that watching the 2.5 hour film Dune makes you sleepy because the story is slow and there are lots of conversations, but I don't think that's the case after watching it yesterday after work.

For those of you who like films by director  Denis Villeneuve, you can definitely understand this, such are his characteristics, such as when working on the films Blade Runner 2049, Arrival 2016 and my favorite, Sicario, which was broadcast in 2016.

Predicted to be a contender for the galaxy films Star Wars and Star Trek, it seems from the story side that Dune will be able to compete.

Rather than the exploitation of shootouts or chases in empty space, the intrigue of the struggle for power and politics is very strong in this remake film.

In general, Dune tells the story of how the empire suppressed a kingdom called Atreides, the ruler of a sea-mountain planet that was growing day by day and becoming a threat to the empire.

The way to do this is by giving power to power and getting the task of mining rare and expensive minerals called "spices" on a desert planet called Arrakis.

Previously, for 80 years, this colony was managed by another kingdom called Harkonnen, suddenly this change made Harkonnen not accept it and carried out a coup which was actually predicted by King Atreides.

Unfortunately, the struggle for power occurred with a drama of betrayal from within so that Atreides was not ready to fight with all his strength.

The crown prince, the future successor to King Atrides, named Paul, survived with his mother after successfully escaping from the enemy and meeting the Fremen tribe, native to the planet Arrakis.

The film ends just when the new story starts to get exciting and hot, Paul, who is also mentioned in the prediction of the Fremen tribe to become the leader of "Al Mahdi" or "Lisan Al Ghaib" is living his destiny towards becoming the next leader of the Atreides and Fremen with the aim of regaining power. taken by the Harkonnen and the tyrannical empire.

Hopefully the Dune film will be financially successful, so that the sequel Dune Chapter Two can be produced and answer the audience's curiosity regarding the continuation of Paul's struggle, even though we know this film is based on the best-selling science fiction novel by Frank Herbert.

The technological side displayed is also interesting, sophisticated, combining futuristic and ancient sides at the same time.

The Plot of the Film Dune Reminds the History of Colonization in Indonesia
While many people associate the film Dune with terms in Islam and the Middle East, after the film ended what came to my mind was the history of colonialism in Indonesia.

The planet Arrakis is like an archipelago with its wealth of spices. Countries came that initially wanted to trade, then wanted to rule and colonize, then a collective consciousness began to emerge to fight and fight for independence.

Arrakis as a planet and the Fremen as its local population could only be seen and exploited by the invaders who came and went, the empire, the Harkonnen and the Atreides.

Similar to the archipelago and Indonesia, which at least in historical records was colonized by 6 countries because of its spice and natural wealth.

1. Portuguese
Portugal became the first country to colonize the Indonesian archipelago. The Portuguese colonized Indonesia for approximately 86 years from 1509 to 1595.
2. Spain
Spain became the second country to colonize Indonesia. Spain collaborated with the Tidore kingdom under the guise of trading spices which were very abundant in Indonesia at that time. 

Spain colonized Indonesia for quite a long time, namely from 1521 to 1962.

Overall, Dune is a drama film set in the future and space war, which is interesting and recommended to watch, so you don't get sleepy, stay enthusiastic and provide coffee.

3. Netherlands
The Dutch were the country that colonized Indonesia the longest, for almost 3 and a half centuries they controlled Indonesia. The Dutch began to colonize Indonesia from 1602 to 1942.
4. France
France became the 4th country to colonize Indonesia, but France did not take as long as the previous countries that colonized Indonesia. France only colonized Indonesia for 5 years, starting from 1806 to 1811.
5. England 
England became the 5th country to colonize Indonesia after France left Indonesia. The British colonized Indonesia from 1811 to 1816. 

6. Japan
Japan was the last country to colonize Indonesia. And the fastest was just three and a half years, namely 1942 to 1945.

However, even for a short time, Japan was the cruelest in colonizing Indonesia compared to the previous five countries.
