Fairyland In Reality.

Last night, I attended F.I.R.’s concert at the Max Pavilion. It was unreal. F.I.R. 光合之旅 – apparently it’s photosynthesis, where they are air, water, and light, and we are their growing sprouts. I used to be a huge fan of theirs when I was in secondary school and junior college. I had their debut album on … Continue reading

Lights Will Guide You Home.

I don’t normally post personal topics on this blog, but I’m doing so today under the guise of talking about music — a song, in particular. A friend once said “I don’t understand why in a world where Radiohead exists, that Coldplay should have any meaning whatsoever.” Well, as much as I’m not a fan … Continue reading

Too Early To Be November.

I was in HMV last week with no intention of buying CDs. I only went cos Q wanted to look at the new releases and whatnot as usual. After walking through the shelves, we came to a listening station near the T-shirts and Q picked up a CD and went “guess what genre they are?”. … Continue reading

Peter Katz.

I had the luck (and privilege) of catching Peter Katz‘s last set at this year’s Music Matters Live concert. He had played 4 other sets on the first 2 days of the conference. For this fifth one at the main stage, he came on right after Sixx and I don’t know how he felt then, … Continue reading

The “4 Days To Christmas” Gift Guide.

Here I am to offer my blunt two cents’ worth on what to buy someone for Christmas, especially if you’ve only got a few days left to do so. Chop, chop! Girls 1. Sephora anything. The Urban Decay Naked Palette ($78 at Sephora) has practically attained Holy Grail status among make up junkies. There’s also … Continue reading

One More For The Road.

Made it to Wake Me Up Music’s farewell-going-out-with-a-bang gig, day 2; the day that would only happen once in a lifetime with bands that had previously said their final goodbyes. Plainsunset / Pension State / Sky In Euphoria / My Squared Circle / Fishtank / Vertical Rush / Marchtwelve / Surreal Here’s some lousy iPhoneography/videography … Continue reading

I Wanna Barack Your World.

White Pegacorn – Barack Your World. This is too good not to share immediately. White Pegacorn is actually Mike Shinoda and Mark Wakefield. Who’s Mark? Mark was the first vocalist of Linkin Park, back when they were in their first incarnation and called themselves Xero. Yes. It’s even further back than when they were called Hybrid Theory. … Continue reading

Linkin Park Live at the Singapore Grand Prix 2011.

So last night, I got to watch Linkin Park live in concert again. OH MY GOD I CANNOT BELIEVE I GOT TO WATCH THEM AGAIN. I WENT FOR THEIR FIRST GIG HERE IN SINGAPORE IN 2004 IN THE EXACT PLACE IN ALMOST THE EXACT SAME DISTANCE FROM THE STAGE I CANNOT BELIEEEEEVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This time, … Continue reading

I Want You Again.

Nicholas Chim – I Want You Again MV from 29 Cornflakes on Vimeo. Move over, Damien Rice (and Lisa Hannigan). Allow me to introduce my friend Nick Chim to you guys. Nick is a very talented singer-songwriter (who used to play guitar in the band Vertical Rush (RIP)). I actually had no idea who he … Continue reading

The Sins Of My Youth.

Hello, blogosphere. I’m back, and I bring to you a combined review of the Neon Trees concert last night and their Habits album. I managed to get free entry to the concert thanks to good friends with good connections last week and wasn’t actually keen on going since I don’t know any songs by the … Continue reading
