Damien Rice LIVE

Posted by Lokman Salikoon

All thanks to a date gone wrong and me being the 2nd hand companion as not to waste the tickets, i managed to catch Damien Rice Live at Suntec Theater. For all those who don't know who he is, he's the guy behind songs like, Canonball, Delicate (...the song that was playing on hurley's cd player when it ran out of batteries on the hit tv drama, Lost) and of cos the famous Blower's Daughter (Song used in the movie Closer). Its funny how you've been listening to certain songs over and over agian in your mp3-player and when u finally hear it live, its just sounds different, more dynamic with the accoustic resounding echo through the hall. As what my friend told me, the fun part of a concert is actually hearing the stories behind the song, which can be absolutely related to one's life or be completely blown away on its simplicity and dumb reasons for making a song, which works for some.

My camera sucks. Nuf said. it's too dark to see anything but enjoy the music yah? and yes it THAT short. I'm not gonna waste my entire duration filming it. I'm there to enjoy the concert, NOT to deliver entertianment to u...

Throughout the musical spread, i kept wondering why a certain song wasn't played. I mean, it's his mega hit. Then it dawn onto me that he left it out for a reason. Finally, nearing to the end, after thanking his crew and those involved in his showcase, he wrapped it up by slipping in a finale which made the crowd cheered with relieve and gladness. Blower's Daughter, sung with a "Radiohead twist", it ended the concert rather nicely and left me with a smile, knowning i would come back for more.

So thanks agian for tagging me along with you to the concert...and no, i shall not consider that as a birthday gift...

Singapore Ga-Ga-h?

Singapore Gaga has receive a bundle of raves from all directions especially commenting on how rich it shows the culture and essence of Singapore. Comments of her see-ing a side of Singapore not many see.

I, for one, didn't really see all the hype and fuss.

I mean, its not that its a really bad documentry but it all seemed sparodic without a storyline with just snippets of Singapore life through the eyes of the director. I'm sure there's a theme. i just can't pin point it out.

A random thought

What if we lived underwater. Would our pet goldfish swim and hang around us like dogs and cats or would they just swim away into the "wild"?

Heaven can wait...
