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.
