The Vines' Vision Valley

You can preview The Vines' latest offer where they discuss track by track from Vision Valley. Also, check out the new Craig Nicholls. Is there something slightly different about Craig? Absolutely obviously there is. Where have the insanity and extreme behaviour gone? Clearly, he has survived Asperger, and hopefully, the new Craig continues to bring us good music.

Malaysia vs Singapore

Let's compare:
28/2 Fort Minor
24/1 Backstreet Boys
16/2 Franz Ferdinand (f*cking brilliant!)
23/2 Oasis
1/3 Fort Minor
23/3 Placebo

These are the international acts that play in my homeland and the 'beloved' neighbour in the past few months or the near future. Well, see the difference? Guess Malaysia isn't that boleh anyway.


Juicebox Single

"...Kauai or Oahu, Molokai and Lanai.
Maui and the big guy, aka Hawaii.

Cut off from Malaysia back in who knows when...

Oh, we got kinda lost, but my god, what a place.
I profess, Airforce jets cannot take away my soul."

(Exerpt from The Strokes' Juicebox B-side Hawaii)

At least The Strokes know the existence of Malaysia, which makes this so-called Boleh-land slightly cooler.

The Raconteurs' New Video

Check out the video of The Raconteurs' debut single, "Steady as She Goes (mp3)". Jack White has got rid of his Willy Wonka look! Guess he passed his top hat to Brendan Benson. And what's with the cows running around in the video?

Ya'll Like Some Grillz Now, Ya Hear!

Paul Wall

I notice a new fad on a rise among gangsta rappers recently. I mean Grillz, ya hommies! For those who don't know what is grillz, it refers to removable cosmetic dental metal apparati featuring silver, gold, or platinum caps with diamond inlays jewelled to be worn over the teeth. See the picture above, ya know what I mean. That fella Paul Wall is one of the main propagators who turned the product into popular fashion. He owns a jewelry store that specializes in the production of grillz. Now grillz have became a must-have for all rappers in their bling bling collections. Grillz is now so big, even Nelly has a chart-topper hit dedicated to it.

“Rob the jewelry store and tell em make me a grill Had a whole top diamond and da bottom row`s gold”

Whoa, never thought I can relate to a rap song. Beware Poh Kong! Gotta get myself some grillz like Andy Milonakis. So I can become The People's Chomp superhuman and bite through everything. Anyone needs help? Grrrrr.....

Crash Into The Mountain


The Oscar's winners were announced few hours ago. Crash won the Best Film. Click here for full winners' list.

I recalled watching this film 2 months back in December, during a flight from Sydney to Kuala Lumpur. The film is about several interweaving stories which revolve around a racially diverse group of people in L.A. All the characters collide into each other in unexpected ways after a crash accident. It focuses on the sensitive racism issues, and some scenes are indeed provocative. The film is strong yet I was kinda suprised that it beat the overhyped Brokeback Mountain in the Oscar. Nevertheless, Crash was the only nominated best film I have seen so far, so I couldn't comment much. For those who haven't seen it, worth checking it out.

Songs from Crash:

Stereophonics - Maybe Tomorrow

Kathleen 'Bird' York - In The Deep


Everyone is racist. Me and you.
