COMPUTER and SIGNING IN

My computer is right next to our family TV...often people would find me propped up comfortably in a rattan chair surfin/clickin/punching the keyboard with the TV blarin away....it's almost always Star World...ESPN...AXN or MTV...these...imho...are the greatest channels that caters to noone but me...lol....i mean...when u are at home almost 5.5 days a week..due to obvious reasons...and u've noone to talk to....the excellent choice of programs is all i need to beat away the lonely blues....

And lonely i often am....since completin my National Service last year ive often played with the thought of findin a p/t job to supplement my crazy shoppin trips (and yes...men DO shop)...but i figured i didnt need a distraction from my studies....

Now that ive graduated...it's been 4 months now mind u...i still dont understand why im still stuck at home...i guess ive grown to a certain level of comfort...'the comfort zone' ppl call it...when u've been in a familar surroundings for such a long time...with everythin at your disposal and within reach...u tend to stagnate and reach a 'lethargic' phase....

Yes...that's what im experiencin now i suppose....

My computer's also right next to the window overlookin 12 terrifyin maisonette storeys...these weeks it has been rainin non-stop due to the annual pilgrimage of Mr Monsoon and friends...it's been mostly chilly...and when i say chilly i MEAN chilly....the cool winds billowin through the windows literally make my hair stand...comin from a bloke who's settled in a hot and humid climate his whole life it's hard to acclimitise to a 24C day temperature...there are the perks though...such as goin through your wardrobe to find this funky sweater u COULDNT possilby wear on a normal Singapore day...and puttin it on in the mid-afternoon while out shoppin...nothin beats that :)

You can probably guess what im decked out in now...yes...2 tee-shirts...and im still feelin kinda brrrrrr.....

My brother Ken dropped me a pretty incredulous SMS yesterday...he asked if i could sign him into Zouk as Lynette and he might be swingin by...i had to take a double take...Ken's never been interested in the kind of music that i listen to...ever the retro and popular music fan...u could find him gyratin his booty to the sexy sounds of Kylie and some cheesy 80s anthem on Mambo nights...the one and only time ive ever been to a Mambo...i needed 3 hours of straight progressive house to detox my brain after gettin home....yes...Mambo music sucks...it's terrible..it's oppresive...and it's dangerous to the public health...God save those who listen to bad music...

Anyway...i do wish Ken and his posse hop on by to Zouk on a Friday or Saturday nights...the local music scene is evolvin...albeit at a slow pace...the atmosphere and the crowd on these nights....especially when a good DJ is spinnin....John Digweed and Armin Van Buuren being the most recent...it's quite a spectacle...the people cheerin and the strobes of lights on their faces....the music that takes u out of your current mental state and transport u to an alternative place for those few hours...you can be whoever you like..wherever u want...moments like these are hard to beat....and extremely memorable...

Carl Cox and Danny Tenaglia's comin to town this week...im very excited at the prospect of checkin out Danny's famed marathon sets...i understand he's doin a minimum 6 hours set in Zouk this saturday....i wonder how he's gona layer his songs over that length of time....it's gona be quite a feat....6 hours of progressive tunes...egads :) When Carl Cox is in town the buzz is quite palpable....ive met Techno junkies who made the short trip from Kuala Lumpur to Singapore just to check him out...shows the extent of crazy things some ppl do just for a DJ...

A start of a brand new week....
