Jerome Kugan is launching his album Songs For A Shadow this Saturday at The Annexe and it's going to be fantabulous, because Jerome is fabulous and his album is fierce. (In a mellow, electro-acoustic kinda way.) If you don't believe me, I have YouTube videos to prove his fabulosity! See!
Tomas (probably my fav of the three. I remember listening to this at No Black Tie and loving it, way before Jerome and I were friends.)

Isn't it fantastic? (Ok I am running out of 'f' adjectives.) Don't you want MORE? Then drag your ass to the album launch this Saturday (12 April), 8.30pm at The Annexe Central Market. There will be readings (bernice chauly + priya k), performances (bulimia, tan sei hon, azmyl yunor, ferns) and a dj set (danny lim +... me -_-). I still get weirded out when people call me a "dj" cos I am so far from one. I just choose my fav stuff and press play.
Anyway, see you there in your fancypants. Don't forget the fancypants, dammit! It's the theme! I am wearing red leggings. Or maybe my crazy retro skirt. Or my loud yellow dress. Hmmm...
I've been terribly busy working on the new KLue site. We've been trying to get it up for so damn long now that I almost can't believe it's live and running. And running well, and looking good! I must admit, I personally like it; love it even. It's so easy to use, and I should know as I had to test some pretty atrocious ones while working towards the final result. I have a bit of an obsessive personality, and right now, the site is my obsession. (Gah, why am I such a workaholic.)
The last entry on this blog was just before I headed out for the Black Circuit Paddock Party. Oh my god what a freaking awesome night. It was all levels of insanity. There was a fucking crazy mosh pit in the dancefloor .. Steve Aoki and Mark "thecobrasnake" Hunter made full use of the crowd by doing like, 5 stage dives. There was a moment where I thought I was going to die of being crushed by thecobrasnake... he stage dove, I fell, and he almost landed right on top of me. Lucky I got pulled up in time. Anyway, the both of them were great to interview - no egos. Here's a video with snippets of our conversation and clips from the party. The part where it gets static-ky is when they stage dove and Didi couldn't hold on to her camera.
It's definitely in the running to be the best party of the year. Even Aoki thought it was rocking, since he blogged about it. And of course, cobrasnake's infamous party photos of the night.
Ok, moving on to tomorrow's big event - Surface. It's part of this audio-visual project organized by British Council, called Re-Imagining The City. What they're doing for this event is pretty ridonkulous - they've collected recordings, photos and visuals of KL to piece it together into a piece that reflects the city. It's all going to be set to some pretty awesome mood music and from what I saw last night at their warm-up gig, it's going to an eye-opener because the D-Fuse guys really know what they're doing. You'll get what I mean when you watch this video:
Ok, enough event whoring. I'll end this entry with a mash-up of R Kelly's "I'm A Flirt" and "7/4 Shoreline" by Broken Social Scene (drunkards!). It is DOPE.
Nostalgia keeps me coming back to this blog. Too many memories and experiences since 2003; too hard to completely abandon; too busy to do much with it. But updates are on again, off again, sometimes, rarely, hardly, often, sporadically, twice a day, once in three months. I'm blogging to remember because I forget too easily these days. More?.
