The fatal curse.

Realised this a month or so ago, which I think is a good, yet bad thing. Whenever I have time, I invariably invent some project/startup/seemingly brilliant idea to save the world. Something that will usually consume my waking and sleeping moments, buzz around in my head incessantly and turn my life into a neverending list of to-do’s.

NZ nailed it right then when he said, you only realised this recently? Took all of five seconds to realise, hell yeah he’s right. Even my holidays are always packed to the brim.

I suspect a part of this stems from a crazy voice in my head that rages like this:

  • No one’s doing this yet, so WHY DON’T YOU! Make the lives of others better dammit!
  • Someone else is doing a real shitty job at it, so WHY DON’T YOU! You know you can do better!

And before I know it, I’m neck deep and treading water hard. Not once, not twice, but multiple times in the years gone by. I’m not saying the attempts have been raging successes (the opposite in fact), but I end up losing sleep and sinking a huge amount of time into the whole gig. The journey is always fun though. Tiring, draining, but fun somehow. Not to mention the current project is looking kinda good, have high hopes for it.

Conclusion: I will never really be free until I kick this habit. Which, in case you were wondering, is NEVERGONNAHAPPEN. Argh.

I miss my PS3, so need to finish up Skyrim.

Of a morning conversation that meant something, yet nothing.

Had a conversation with a guy who was clearly high on something, while waiting for the train this morning. I mean, we’re talking about a dude who took five minutes to sit on the same bench as me, and failed miserably.

Guy: Hey, you want (something unintelligible)?
Me: Nah.
Guy: Yeah?
Me: No.
Guy: Yeah?
Me: No.
Guy: No?
Me: Yeah.
Guy: Yeah?
Me: No.
Guy: No?
Me: Yeah, no.

I’m not sure what happened either.

Showing a little bit of fandom for Dreamz FM

So I was feeling nostalgic since the weekend, and happily doing what I haven’t been doing in a long time: listening to music. Old music at that. It sounds odd, but I used to belt songs out loud back when I was still in Singapore, and that habit gradually got killed over the years of living in Melbourne.

(It’s called showing respect. Just because my parents didn’t complain about the noise pollution, didn’t mean V wouldn’t. And in case you were wondering, yes she did.)

Horror ensured

It came to a part when I was listening to 梦‧飞船 (Dreamz FM), loving their songs once more and Googling Dreamz FM, and I realised something truly horrific – the band did not exist on the internet. Fragments could be found in the occasional forum. Nothing was in Wikipedia. A few photographs, most of them album cover art. The one Facebook page that claimed to be a fan page for the band, had eight fans. EIGHT. With practically zero content at that. What. The. Eff.

I was flabbergasted. Disgusted. Ashamed. Should Dreamz FM be forgotten in (online) history just like that, with no mention of them at all on our beloved intarwebs outside of the omnipotent Baidu and various Chinese MP3 websites? Something had to be done. And so, I did.

And so it came to be.. on Facebook

I present to you, the Dreamz FM 梦‧飞船 Facebook page. At the very least, it contains everything I found tonight: forum mentions, YouTube videos and playlists, a short biography plus track listings of their three albums: some content to keep the love alive. Like it, share it, and may your likes keep our memories of that wonderful group alive forever.

Incidentally, here’s my favourite track of the night from their third album, 航行记录3.

7-11的爱恋

作词:李瞳
歌 作曲:梦飞船
词 编曲:林毅心

爱 是否就是等待
我徘徊 于放弃的无奈
在 7-11的门外
你说他要你等他回来

*二十四小时的虚伪让我累了
填补他的空缺
我期待什么呢
我在你心里不过
是家便利商店
随时等待你出现
买一些时间

^Oh Baby 如果我不再回电
消失了 你会不会发现
曾经让你依靠的肩 会不会眷恋
或许只能说再见
才能告别 等待的厌倦
结束 7-11的爱恋

重复 * ^

Oh Baby 如果我不再回电
消失了 你会不会发现
曾经让你依靠的肩 会不会眷恋
或许只能说再见
才能够告别 等待的厌倦
结束 7-11的
7-11 的爱恋

如果我不再回电
消失了 你会不会发现

或许只能说再见
才能告别 等待的厌倦

如果我不再回电
消失了 你会不会发现

郭富城与我心狂野

从前,欣赏郭富城一半原因,是因为朋友的影响。剩余,是因为他帅气和嗓子。还记得小时候,常常听着卡带,插着耳机直入眠。当时,网际网络也还没存在,要看电视上看Aaron节目的机会,少只有少。陪伴我的,也只有歌声。

粤语:对我而言是个浪漫,又充满感情的方言。学习的旅程,也从他而起,全因为我想唱他的歌。也许,很多人会觉得这理由很无聊。人生中,许多事的开始,往往都存在着单纯的开始吧?不需想太多,想做就去做。说起来其实还蛮尴尬,但是过了好多年,我粤语也不过”半桶水”。

不知不觉,已过了好多年。现在的我,是完全沉醉在他那充满魅力的舞蹈。刚柔并济,不歇的动作,跳得跟其他dancers一样卖力,还得边唱边跳,保持笑容。

特别这首在梦难留专辑里的《我心狂野》,只能用两个字形容:性感。

只要一看罗志祥年轻时期的模仿,就感觉出层次的差别。形在,但缺了神髓。

回味着以前的他,参与综艺节目的一举一动也让我觉得他一路走来,实在不易。

就如老妈常说,要靠天时,地利,人和。不只运气,还需要很大的努力。Aaron, 绝对是个值得尊重的歌手,也是我永远的偶像。
