Chris Rock is a Pro

They are calling it ‘the slap that was heard around the world.”

Earlier today, actor Will Smith won the Best Actor Oscar for his role in the movie “King Richard”. However, in one of the greatest acts of self-sabotage in the history of Hollywood, no one is talking about his win. Everyone is talking about what Will Smith did about an hour before he picked up his Oscar.

About halfway through the show, comedian Chris Rock went on stage to present an Oscar and made an off-colour joke about Smith’s wife, Jada Pinkett Smith. Rock joked that Pinkett Smith, who has alopecia, should star in a “G.I. Jane” sequel due to her bald head. The audience laughed. Will Smith laughed. Pinkett Smith did not and rolled her eyes. Then, Will Smith storm onto the stage and slapped Chris Rock.

Rock was visibly stunned while Smith went back to his seat and yelled at Rock to Pinkett Smith’s name out of his mouth. Rock tried to defend himself by saying it was a ‘G.I. Jane’ joke. Smith then repeated himself, which Rock replied by telling the audience “That was the greatest night in the history of television.” He smiled to the camera, handed over the best documentary prize, which was the reason he was on stage, and moved off the stage.

Now, stand-up comedians are usually adept at handling hecklers, but I don’t think anyone expected Will Smith to react the way he did. In fact, I didn’t think the joke was all that offensive. It wasn’t funny, it was off-colour but there were far more offensive jokes said at the award show. If you don’t believe me, just look up Amy Schumer’s joke on Leonardo DiCaprio and his girlfriends. That was far worse.

So, I must say this. Chris Rock is a pro. He handled the matter like a total professional and kept the award show going. A different person would have handled the matter differently and caused the whole show to come crashing down. Chris Rock did not. Rock came out of the whole thing looking like the most mature person in the whole affair. Chris Rock!

Now, that is history-making.

Please get vaccinated

 

It has been some time since I updated this blog and today, I have some good news, and some bad news.

Bad news is that I had COVID.  

Good news is that I am fully vaccinated and already had my booster, so my symptoms were mild. It’s nothing more than a mild cold for me. If I wasn’t vaccinated and did not have the booster shot, things could be a lot worse.

So, for everyone out there. Please get vaccinated. COVID is nothing to be afraid of if you get the vaccine.

'The Immortal Conspiracy' is now available!

Took a little longer than I expected, but it's out! 'The Immortal Conspiracy' is now available on Amazon. Book 2 of the 'Ages of Technology', it continues the story of Tobias Wong and tell you why you should always be wary about things that are free. Especially if it is from your supervillain father!

The Immortal Conspiracy

 

So, it has been over a year! 

In my last post, I said I wanted to post on this blog more regularly. Man, did I failed or what! 

Good news is that I'm still writing, and anyone who wish to support me may do so on my Patreon. If you don't like Patreon, then you may buy my next book!

Yes, the next book in the "Ages of Technology' series is completed. Titled 'The Immortal Conspiracy", it continues the tale of Tobias Wong, who had survived the firefight in Thailand thanks to the system. The gift from his father had changed Tobias' life, but nothing is for free, and it's now time for him to pay the bill.  

If everything works out, it should be on sale on Amazon next month. So, please watch out for it. Thanks!

Not Dead

Man, I have been lazy!
I had been updating my stories regularly on my Patreon, Royal Road Legends and Webnovel. Yet I haven't updated this blog in over FIVE months! Sorry about that, but there's really not much for me to update. I had been crunching out both 'The Suit-Maker' and 'Grandpa Sweet Fist' on time, and outside a small health scare, everything has been going well.
On a smaller note, I had been releasing my rough draft of 'The Dungeon Hive Trilogy' on Webnovel and the response has been good. It was on the 'Feature Original Stories' tab a few weeks ago, and will be recommended on the ORIGINAL block of 'Promising Originals' next week. So anyone who read stories on Webnovel may look out for it.
Thank you for reading, and I hope you won't have to wait another five months for the next update. Until next time!

Patreon


Rather belatedly, I am here to inform the few fans I have that I have a patreon account. I had it for a few weeks already, so if anyone has some extra cash on hand, you can make a small donation to read upcoming parts of my ongoing stories.

Now if you are asking why I am on patreon, the answer is simple; I am a jealous man.
I have been writing for the past few years, and when I see so many of my fellow writers on patreon, I can’t help but want a small piece of the pie. Is this the most persuasive request for donations you would ever read? No, but this is the truth. I am a small-minded jealous man who want YOUR MONEY!

With the begging out of the way, I am also here to tell everyone I am writing a new story. It’s called ‘Grandpa Sweet Fist’ and it is my take on the mentor figure troupe. In most adventure/fantasy stories, there is always an older mentor figure who stood by the hero’s side through thick and thin, only to be off before the end of the story.

This is that story but told through the eyes of the mentor. I shall be adding in several other troupe like Badass Grandpa, Eccentric Mentor, Old Superhero/Villain, Absent Parent and anything else I can throw in. Why am I writing this story now when I am still writing the sequel of ‘The Suit-Maker’? Simply put; the sales of the ‘The Suit-Maker’ sucks. Sales figures are poor, and I seriously doubt it will get any better in the future. So hopefully, GSF will do better.

Thanks for reading!

The Suit-Maker' is available on Amazon!


It's finally out! The Suit-Maker is now available on Amazon and Smashwords. A hardcore sci-fi novel with cyberpunk and steampunk elements, I think the book is a bit of a risk but hopefully, I'll sell enough copies to break even. Please take a look.
