Long days, big dreams

Another Day in the life of moe nasrul. I write this from my bed with heavy eye lids wanting to close from a full day of running around and meetings.

So far I have been insanely busy and when I mean insanely busy it is really busy. So busy that I can't remember when was the last time I was ever this busy. I mean hey my day just ended at four in the morning.

So what am I doing you might ask? Well for starters I've been trying to start up a series of gigs at a cafe lounge called Laila's at Plaza Kelana Jaya. Basically trying to get a unit music scene coming up and hopefully bring our music scene to the next level. My target is to do two months of acoustic gigs just to get the ball rolling before transitioning fully into electric. Lotta planning and meeting.

Another is that I am working on a few projects where I am to produce two tv shows which would be direct to mobile phones. Can't really disclose much but what I can say is, it's pretty much my debut into the world of producing shows.

Another is of courses managing artists and so far I have one band Kyoto protocol, Sashi C Loco of poetic ammo fame and Iz currently with me. I have also started a brand new company called Talent Harvestw Sdn Bhd to be the vehicle to which I will be promoting these artists.

Further more, I have my usual array of voice overs and tv shows to which I host. Day by day it is. Moving forward in the most amazing of ways.

That's all I so far in my life at this point of time. Exhausted, sleepy and also wanting to tell someone about it, I write this post. A little diary of sorts online... Which is kind of ironic as a diary is supposed to be private but a blog is as private as a parrot being a horse... Or some bad analogy like that.

Oh well til next time, night night.

Here I am a half an hour before going on 8tv Nite Live

So what do I do before I go on the show today? Blog of course :D Why the sudden need to blog? well lets just say, I came across a few blogs made by some good friends of mine Justin Bratton and his girl Sarah Hodgens.

Pretty much for the past few days I was just deeply entertained by their blog and their posts to the point I was even reading all the older posts.

I just loved their style and viewing things from a different perspective and the fact that I know them in real life I enjoyed how much their personality seeped into the text of their blogs. I mean that is like Blog secret number 1... blog with personality. Who wants to read a deadpan book? (I hope I ain't deadpan borin' you right am I? )

and yeah, reading Justin's blog is like going into the mind of a Howard Stern type character... blatantly honest and at the same time humorously sarcastic. while Sarah is more of a traveller, almost dreamer type of feel.

I gotta learn something from these guys... I wonder what type of personality am I ?

Oh look at the time.. Gotta head on to do my Show on 8TV :D See you all on the Chatbox :)

The Highlights of My Week

Maybe it's waking up at 3:27 in the morning and being fully awake has made me reflect in the dark about all the great things to have happened the past week. So I've decided to do a little list of all the highlights that had happened in my life that is worth mentioning... so definitely there will be no mundane stuff like "OMG! I discovered a new washing detergent that makes my white shirts extra white!", no matter how true it is.

1) Launch of Stylekandi! 

This one I got to thank a good friend of mine and a talented musician Gael Oliveres for inviting me to the Press Conference. Not only did I get a glimpse at a website that would revolutionize how trends are set both online and in the real world but I got to touch base with alot of people whom I have not seen in a long while.

2) Esquire Launch Party @ The Intermark

That is right Esquire Launched in Malaysia on Friday and it was an awesome party. What made it even better was that my cousin IZ was there as well among all my other friends from the industry. I just love meeting up with the old faces.

3)Kyoto Protocol's Performance in Barsonic @ Zouk, KL
That is right the band Kyoto Protocol was performing at Zouk with T.A.G. (Twighlight Action Girl) and it was totally rocking! The place was so packed with KPeepers (Kyoto Protocol fans) that there was hardly any room to breath. Not to mention the band gave an awesome performance with stage lighting and custom props for the stage. I liked how the made their stage look like a crime scene.

So far off the top my head those were the highlights of my week. Not to say those were the only things to happen... but you don't really wanna know about the boring stuff, do ya?

A call to the old world

I woke up at 3 today after getting less than 20 minutes of sleep yesterday. Surprising considering that last night I slept before twelve. I guess my body was really exhausted and sleeping like the dead was the best way it could regain back it's natural composure.

It's kind of funny because when I woke up I really did feel like I woke up from the dead. Like the character in the movie Dark City. It made me feel like asking are all the memories in my head planted? Am I on a evil space platform?

Anyways enough of the random mumbo jumbo talk. So I got to calling people which is what I do alot of now days with my own career, future record label work and managing a band. The reason because the band that I'm managing is in real need to a sound guy and guitar tech.

I actually called my old guitarist from The Velvet Aces. We spent a good few minutes talking about nothing. Now mind you my mind is in a fragile state of feeling like memories are implanted, so for a moment I felt like it was 2009 and I still had my band The Velvet Aces and I was calling him to arrange a time to go jamming. To be frank, I had almost asked him "dude... Free for jamming with the band?" . Thank god I didn't cause then I would have probably been seen as a little crazy. What an interesting call to the old world.

So now I'm online and checking my e-mails. My managers hard at work trying to get me jobs. So it seems I got to KIV a few Emcee jobs and it appears tomorrow I have an audition. Wow, I guess he's trying to get me to act. Nice :D

The day in a suit

So I spent most of the day in a suit. why? well lets just say My cousin IZ and I have been working on a proposal to start our own record label. So today we had a huge meeting with some really interesting people who holds our dreams in the palm of their hands.

I have to admit it even for someone like me who is built for presenting to millions, I was bloody nervous. I was so nervous that I barely had any sleep last night. Maybe twenty minutes tops.

During this meeting we had explained our ideas on how to market the record label and all the other aspects of running a business such as this. During our post mortem we felt that we did present our idea to the best of our abilities and even if don't get the funding (not to say we will stop trying) we could at least sleep well knowing we did our very best today.

I hope it does go through... it would mark a new chapter in my life.

Just woke up... at 1 in the afternoon

yup I spent the morning snoozing away. Hey what else do you do on a Saturday morning? I'm just two hours away from a client meeting and later on I'll be heading to the GBOB finals as an invited guest. So it looks like it's going to be a very active day.

Emily had messaged me like a billion messages in the morning. It's not that she purposely wanted to do that but I think I had messaged her a billion and two messages at 3am in the morning. We were chatting and it was a pretty hot gossip topic and I started asking all these silly questions. It's kind of funny how long sometimes it takes your mind to register what the SMS is in reply to. You wake up and like " what does LOL mean? what is she laughing at?" then boom your like oooooooh it's in reply to my joke about her ex-boyfriend or something.

Last night I had atteneded Awards 2010 and it was a blast. It was the very first time I had been to an award where the nominations were for Best Speakers, Best Keyboard, Best Processor. Totally geek heaven. I admit in some ways I am a little bit of a geek. At least now I know what speakers and keyboards to get when I buy a desktop (which I'm considering since the loss of my laptop). I haven't uploaded any pictures of the event as it's with Julian my manager. Hope to place it up soon.

Oh dear it's 1:24! ok gotta get a bit to eat and get ready for that meeting. Note to self follow up with the Inspecter from the police station to follow up on the status of the guy who stole my laptop. Do you think it's wrong if I put his picture everywhere? So the whole world knows? A little mean I know but serves him right.

Life Unwired... It's terrible.

You never realize how wired the world has become until you are disconnected and you feel left out. If you've seen my Facebook and Twitter updates you would know that recently my laptop has been stolen and I am actively trying to chase the person down.

After spending close to two days looking at CCTV footage and aliasing with the police, this has finally become a police case. I am actually on the way right now as we speak heading to the police station. Thanks to my manager and good friend Julian, I am using his laptop now.

I realize that when I lost the laptop alot of people asked me to forget about it and move on. Can I ask why? When something is lost and there is a slim chance that you can find the guy who did it and make things happen why stop? Why give up?

It's so easy to give up but not easy to make things happen. I hope what I am doing now inspires you, the reader of my blog to not take hits. To stand up for yourself when someone brings you down. You control what happens around you, don't be the victim. If you lose anything or things aren't going great be proactive. No matter what people tell you, the limitations they supposedly claim to exist really don't exist at all.

People live their lives purposely limiting themselves, why should you?

Thank to everyone online, Readers of my Blog,Facebook and Twitter... you guys really do give me strength when I am down, for that I love you.

Grumpier than usual...

I feel that I've been going through a male version of PMS and maybe a little grumpier than usual.

I guess you can say it has to do a bit with the writers block I'm going through. Not fun spending hours on end trying to write song lyrics and all there is are 6 pages worthless scribbles. I can't help but to think some of the stuff I'm writing sounds cheesy. I blame commercial songs for polluting my head with mindless none sense hehehehe.

Aside from that, factors relating to my wedding plans have taken it's toll on my mind. Trying to make a perfect wedding is hard when you have a huge family. Everything seems to be very limited because catering for an event that can accommodate a billion people has lots of logistical issues like parking, would there be enough food for everyone issues and of course can the venue fit everyone and will everyone attend or am I wasting my time.

Wow, when I write it down it all feels better... God bless blogging. Although I find it funny that the things bothering my mind can all be summed up in two paragraphs. I would like to think that it would at least make two novels because that what it feels like in my head.

Oh well, it's 4:21AM in the morning and I tomorrow/today is going to be a long day. Will be on 8tv Nite Live too so gotta find a way to nap before the show so I don't look or feel tired. I wanna be hyperactive for you guys like always.

Woke up at Four today...

I'm not usually a "sleep all day" kind of person but I'm guessing since yesterday my good friend (and dang well good magician) went to the gym and really tortured ourselves.

I know going to the gym is not the same as torture, in fact it's supposed to be good for your health but what I felt was torture to me. So I guess my bodies a bit lethargic.

Thus were the first few thoughts of my lazy Saturday. I got a billion and one messages from Emily, my lovely fiance about how she's doing things on a Saturday and being a trillion times more active than me. I couldn't help but feel I missed a whole days worth of stuff... not sure what I would do but I'm sure it would have revolutionized something.

 Spent another 20 minutes just checking my e-mail and nothing important seems to be in it. Alot of Junk mail though. The amount of Junk mail that comes into my mail box is amazing! I swear i'd get all excited like "Oh my God I have 10 e-mails!" thinking that 10 people really want to get in touch with me and find that at least 9 of it is some crap for some service I cancelled half a year ago saying "Oh you left us but hey it's ok cause here is a package to make you wanna join us again! dot dot dot smiley face "

I wish I could see the person who wrote that in person and I'll probably lay down the People's elbow on his Jabroni ass just for being so annoying. Yes, I am using the lines from The Rock... hey it's cool and it fits any situation that you wanna lay a Smack Down.

By the way something off topic... you know that The Rock is back in Wrestling right?

Free Plug for the Rock!

So then got a few calls from a band I'm managing and it's some small stuff, nothing major.

Here I am on a lazy Saturday... just sitting on my bed and blogging. You know maybe I should just rest... that's what I'm meant to do maybe.

How is your Saturday?
