National Anthem

So I’ve been listening to National Anthem non-stop thanks to Spotify. And tonight I was just doodling on the kitchen table and voila! Doodled this.. This is a very bad attempt I must say. But at least I’m starting to draw again! Hee haw!

This is too good to be true. I’ve been his fan for quite some time. But I just saw this video tonight.

How good is he?!? Crazy!

Hold On

So I’ve been looking for quite some time for this particular song. I was having coffee at Zekka, and heard a bit of it. I tried to listen to the lyric, only managed to get some bits and pieces. Tried to google it up but failed. I thought it was James Blake, cause they have similar voice, but it wasn’t. After several failed attempts, I stop trying. And today, I heard the lamest mash-up ever, sounds something like this. I was a bit pissed and decided to change the station, and VOILA!!! Triple J was playing the song!! “The song” that I’ve been looking for months! I recorded to my phone and trying to get the lyric, but still can’t quite catch it.

That’s when I just remembered, why not use Shazam? My housemate got iphone, so I had to download it first to be able to tag the song. After couple of minutes, guess what?!?! Got the song! I was so happy I was so ready to go home and buy the album off the net.

There’s my story. SBTRKT! I need all this process to be able to listen to your song, and I think its worth it!

Look I found her.. Red coat!

You know one of those days when you found new song and just can’t it out of your head? Today is one of those days for me! DAMN!

I first heard of James Blake from Entourage, that was The Wilhelm Scream. And I tried to listen some of his music, but it’s just not my cup of tea, so I gave up. Today, I bumped into Pretty Much Amazing‘s website to listen to Coldplay’s new songs, and guess what, I saw: James Blake – CMYK. Being a pompous graphic designer that I am, the title drew me in. And WHOAAAA.. The song is bloody good! His music is dubstep, some say UK garage. I don’t care how people want to define his music, all i know is I’ve been listening to it for the last one hour (and will continue to do so till I’ve had enough).

Enjoy CMYK!

Beached

Trust me, it’s paradise. This is where the hungry come to feed. For mine is a generation that circles the globe, in search of something we haven’t tried before. So never refuse an invitation. Never resist the unfamiliar. Never fail to be polite and never outstay your welcome. Just keep your mind open and suck in the experience. And if it hurts.. you know what… it’s probably worth it.

You hope, and you dream. But you never believe that something is going to happen for you. Not like it does in the movies. And when it actually does, you expect it to feel different. More visceral, more real. I was waiting for it to hit me.

I still believe in paradise, but now at least I know it’s not some place you can look for. Cause it’s not where you go. It’s how you feel for a moment in your life. And if you find that moment, it lasts forever.

It lasts forever, lasts forever.

For Reasons Unknown

I remember in 2009, I went to V Festival alone. I have one sacred goal, to see The Killers live. I’ve been following their music since their first album. I know almost most of their lyrics, so it’s going to be a karaoke session for me. They started playing at 7pm, and I had to fight my way in the middle of the crowd to get the best possible spot to see the stage. The stage was all pumped out with palm trees, and a big letter K filled with neons.

The rest was history. They were perfect. PER to the FECT!!! I couldn’t point any flaw in their performance that night. It was the best 2 hours of my life!! My bestfriend saw them on the first album concert, she reckons they’re not a good performer. Not enough communication with the audience she said. But that night, they were good. They talked to the audience and we went crazy. Everyone was singing their hearts out all night long. Its like going to a giant karaoke session. EFfin perfect!!

And now out of the blue, my friend posted this performance on her Google+, and suddenly I miss The Killers. I know they’re on hiatus. Brandon did his solo album (sucks big time in my opinion). I hope he gets his sense back and get back together with the band and rush their way to the studio. I miss their music!!!

Anytime Will Do

Oh my reddest rose, caldera, set it off. How your fire grows hermosa caldera glistening. Through your fussed blows careen your caldera, set it off. As your body flows the second hand, flashes, passes. Over your skin like time
