"When you kill for money, there aren't any rules" - 47
Wow, its been so long since I checked Gamespot, almost 2 years! So just reading some of my previous(and rather embarassing) blogs caught me thinking, "Is anyone even reading any of these?" So if anyone reading this feels interested in reading more of my blogs, PLEASE leave a comment. My exams finish at the end of March so I'll be back by then. I have A LOT of gaming to catch up on. :/
The place was buzzing with students. Each with a textbook in hand. Some of them, taking a last look at the chapters. Some flipping through the chapters that they hadn't even looked at yet. And then there were other who simply did not care about the exams. The book just lay sprawled on their hands for the simple reason that they wanted to fit in. Pass the exam that was their motive. Whether or not they got good marks did not affect them. Probably because it did not affect their families either.
Unfortunately I wasn't one of them. So I carefully made my way through the open sea of white uniforms. There in a corner I saw my friends. My gang. They quickly rearranged themselves on my arrival. A common sign to show that they had noticed my arrival. One of them raised his eyebrows and asked me the most common question that a student would face at this time of the year. "Studied for the exam?". I gave the usual reply," Somewhat". The funny thing about this conversation was that neither does the asker seriously care about the answer he receives nor is the person he asks the question to bothered about the meaning of the question. It was the last day. And I was all too eager to finish off the exam and carry on with my normal routine of life(which included music, games, and other stuff that didn't include studying school portions). To my relief, the last exam was computer, a subject that I was quite good at. How I was good at it was beyond me, though.
The thing about the exam hall scene was that eventhough each student had his textbook was open, none of them were really studying. It was just an informal practice that every student who reached campus, opened his text, took a random page and talked with their friends about common events until the bell rang. And when it did, oh the horror! It was as if a switch went on in each of them as they started discussing about the portions. Reffering notes, answering question, solving problems. Everything in a haphazard manner until the school caretaker came to the room and shouted at them to move to their respective rooms
Having taken a last look at my textbook, I made my way to the exam room I was one of the first few people who had arrived. And like all other exams, my confidence level for this exam too, was 0%. I liked it that way. It helped me not to get my hopes up. So that after each exam, if asked, I could say, "The exam was easier than I expected". Soon, the teachers(there were 2 of them) started handing out the answer sheets. This was soon followed by the question papers. Everyone receiving the paper with eyes filled of hope and expectation. Not me though. I just took hold of the paper, barely glancing at it. Soon, the bell rang and everyone started writing. Pin drop silence. It was hard to believe that not a few minutes ago, this place was buzzing with all sorts of sound. I swear I could've heard footsteps from the opposite building! Everyone seemed calm, quiet, completely concentrated on their work. The next few hours flew by. I finished my exam ten minutes earlier. After having quickly checked my answers, I lay by head down on the table to rest.
A second bell woke me up. As I glanced at my face, each of them had a smile stuck to their face. Finally, the 10th grade exams were over. They would have 2 months holidays. They could sing, dance, play or do whatever it was they wanted. Liberty at last! As for me, I already had plans for the vacation. Nothing was going to stop me from enjoying it. Not even a tsunami. I had my music, my games, my friends. Oh yeah, it was on.
Name: Justin Timberlake
Genres: Pop, Dance, Rhythm&Blues
Born: January 31, 1981
Instruments: Vocals, Keyboar, Guitar, Beatboxing
He's an American pop singer who is called by the nickname JT. He won 6 grammys and 2 emmys. And I believe that he has the most versatile voice in the industry after the King Of Pop MJ himself. The hits that made him win millions of American hearts are the songs "What Goes Around", "My Love" and "Sexyback".
But I guess it all started when he sang the song "Bye Bye", in his boy band N'Sync. If you've heard the song, yes, JT did sing it.
Timberlake andJC Chasezwere the two lead singers of the popular 1990s boy band'N Sync.The group formed in 1995, started its career 1996 in Europe, and hit it big in the United States in 1998 with the US release of its debut album*NSYNC, which sold 11 million copies.The album included a number of hit singles such as "Tearin' Up My Heart". For the next two years, encouraged by similar developments with theBackstreet Boys, 'N Sync engaged in a lengthy legal battle with managerLou Pearlman. Eventually the band signed withJive Records.'N Sync released a long-awaited album,No Strings Attached, in March 2000, which became the fastest-selling album of all time with 2.4 million copies sold in its first weekand produced a #1 single, "It's Gonna Be Me". The release was followed by the band's third album,Celebrity, which held the title of the second-fastest selling album of all time. In 2002, after the completion of aCelebrity Tourand the release of "Girlfriend", the third single fromCelebrity, the group decided to take time off, at which point Timberlake began work on his first solo album and the group went into a hiatus. In its lifetime, 'N Sync was internationally famous and performed at theAcademy Awards,theOlympics,and theSuper Bowl,as well as selling more than 50 million copies worldwide,becoming thethird-best selling boy bandin history.
In February 2004, during the halftime show of theSuper Bowl XXXVIIIbroadcast on theCBStelevision network, Timberlake performed with Janet Jacksonbefore a television audience of more than 140 million viewers. At the end of the performance, as the song drew to a close, Timberlake tore off a part of Jackson's black leather costume in a "costume reveal" meant to accompany a portion of the song lyrics. According to CBS, "both Jackson and Timberlake had confirmed they planned it 'independently and clandestinely' without informing anyone."Part of the costume detached, and Jackson's breast was briefly exposed.Timberlake apologized for the incident, stating he was "sorry that anyone was offended by the wardrobe malfunction during the halftime performance of the Super Bowl...."The phrase "wardrobe malfunction" has since been used by the media to refer to the incident and has enteredpop culture.

As a result of the controversy, Timberlake and Jackson were threatened with exclusion from the2004 Grammy Awardsunless they agreed to apologize on screen at the event.Timberlake attended and issued a scripted apology when accepting the first of twoGrammy Awardshe received that night (Best Pop Vocal AlbumforJustifiedandBest Male Pop Vocal Performancefor "Cry Me a River").
Now, JT is one of the most commercially acclaimed singer in all of America. He has also acted in a few movies(I was unable to get those sources).Well that's JT for ya.
