*full-blast fangirl mode*

just a quickie:

i was in my dad's car barely 10 minutes ago, on the way to college, reading my Personality notes as my dad rambled about how tired he is, and how he hates the traffic near my college. fly flm was playing this really catchy song, but i wasn't paying attention until it ended. even when the female voice introduced the next song, i didn't budge from my notes... until she mentioned a name and a song title that made my exam today and my dad's grumblings seemed mediocre.

"... Marty Casey and The Lovehammers, Trees"

i LITERALLY smiled while singing along to the song, and when i get off the car, i was actually... happier.

eiiiiii Ikin if you're here instead of being an arnab way over there in Tokyo, i would've called you and say "TURN ON THE RADIO RIGHT NOW! my Marty is singing!"

how low can you get?

Yasmin Ahmad in her blog said that people who went to cineplexes to watch her latest movie Gubra were being turned down by the person behind the counter, who said that the cinema hall was full. but in some cases, someone who watched the screenings said that the halls could acommodate more people as they were only half-full...

so what exactly is going on here? who knows?

and how exactly is the local movie industry is suppose to flourish with this kind of mentality surrounding us?

sad, don't you think?

happy birthday, Mama. if you're around, you would be 58 today. you would be young, you would be beautiful, you would be cherished. you would be loved.

put this record on

this is currently my fave song. such a soulful, soulful voice.

"Put Your Record On" - Corinne Bailey Rae
Three little birds, sat on my window
And they told me I don't need to worry
Summer came like cinnamon
So sweet
Little girls double-dutch on the concrete.
Maybe sometimes, we got it wrong
But it's alright
The more things seem to change
The more they stay the same
Oh, don't you hesitate.
Go, put your records on
Tell me your favourite song
You go ahead, let your hair down
Sapphire and faded jeans
I hope you get your dreams
Just go ahead, let your hair down
You're gonna find yourself somewhere, somehow.
Blue as the sky, sombre and lonely
Sipping tea in the bar by the road side (just relax, just relax)
Don't you let those other boys fool you
Gotta love that afro hairdo.
Maybe sometimes, we feel afraid
But it's alright
The more you stay the same
The more they seem to change
Don't you think it's strange?
Repeat #
Just more than I could take, pity for pity's sake
Some nights kept me awake, I thought that I was stronger
When you gonna realise, that you don't even have to try any longer
Do what you want to.
Repeat #


on a different music-related note, Mandisa is out of the race. Sigh~ it's just not right. but then again, it just proves that even people who we all believe could make it big stumble sometimes. and yes, song choice is VERY important.

but i want more of her.... :(

nothing new this week, by the way. being the procrastinator that i am, i haven't started on any of my assignments, and my Personality lecturer has given us a new one to be done by Wednesday. haih~ i need to get started on my assignments. now. now. NOW.

ok maybe in a couple of hours... ^_^;;

just got back from a brisk walk/gossip session with Azzura and Animz. no jogging at all today, we were too busy bitching about people, and ourselves. hehe. but the walk did make up for the heavy dinner i had with Kusa, his bro Fen and the dearest Auntie Rosnah at Chili's Bangsar last night. had the oh-so-famous cheese fries for starters, and beef fajitas as a main course. and that molten chocolate cake did what desserts meant to do... bloated me out of my mind!

so here's hoping for a productive Sunday~

ciao all!
