Project Superstar Controversy

Well, in today's Life Section of The Straits Times, its the Project Superstar finalists on the cover.

Project Superstar is the chinese spin-off of America's American Idol which HAD indeed done better to the english spin-off of AMI, Singapore Idol. Who ever talks of Slyvester or Taufik now? :)
This is quite expected, from a country where English Music hardly never takes flight, cept for a few really good ones like Corrinne May, whos really impressive.

Ok back to the Project Superstar, I know i'm lagging a while here but yea i DO know that the blind one beat the normal one. For a few months people have been rooting for the blind one. Well, he has a good voice, i admit, but, some controversy had surfaced that whether he beat the normal one by real votes or 'Symphathy Votes' .

I personally did not cast a single vote during the show's whole season, why?

We people type in xxxx and send! 70c charged .
Mediacork makes money.
Local Telco's make even more money.

I just dont understand why people will actually vote where else whos the one on the winning side for the whole series? Telcos and Mediacork.

Well, I do read papers and they report that a actual fan from the female finalist's so called fan club suggested that if everyone pool in 10 bucks, they will amass a polling funds of 20k.
Like I always tell Marcus during a pool game, Lofty Aspirations, lofty aspirations.

I wanna ask. Sure, you guys may 'quite possibly' get the funds together but hey, who's the people laughing their way to the bank?
Telcos and Mediacork.

I seriously do not understand what goes through the minds of the fans. They tinge at the fact that the donations to a certain Golden Tap Kidney Foundation are getting more and more, with the telcos actually leeching a toll fee out of that.

But hey, you think smses dont hold a toll fee, yea why not? at 70cents per sms, its about 16 times the usual price of a sms. You could send an sms to George W. Bush and not get tolled for the sms. Cool huh? Obviously the fans had failed in their mathematics .

Telcos are getting richer and richer, fans are getting poorer and poorer with each talent show. Of course, I do want my fans to vote for me IF i ever enter a talent contest, but it'll do the nation good if its free.

Back to the 'symphaty votes' issue of a certain Mr Blind.

Well, I made a startling discovery that 3 million Singaporean retards did not even notice. Maybe as said in Dustin's blog, they are tooo stressed up with typing smses and didnt even notice that fact.

MR BLIND, IS NOT BLIND.

Why? I do not make groundless accusations. Just take a look at a few photos i ripped borrowed from google.com .

Bad. Bad. Bad

Yey! Another negative post from Holla.

Toothache's back.

When you are happy, all ailnesses dissapear, when you are down and out, they come back.

The Simple Sad Life

It came all of a sudden. Images of my pathetic past just came flashing back to my mind. Repercussions?
I can hardly make a joke out of it in my post. Its just.. Very sorry.
That hidden part inside my brain just resurfaced, the unhappy past.

I am not a popular guy. I dont have much friends. I look at envy where hoards of friends go home together while I usually go home alone. Probably not a popular bus service? I dont know.

I hadnt gone to town in a loonng time. Busy? Its probably an excuse.

I treasure my friends, Dustin, Bryan etc, just to name a few. But, I ponder to myself 4-5 years down the road, when everyone has made new friends, adapted to new surroundings, what's in for me? Will I be able to make new friends? Will I be able to adapt to the surroundings? I seriously do not know.

Friends are the most important thing happened to man ever since condoms the air conditioner.

If u are rich, but have no friends to share your joy, whats the point?
If u are poor, yet have friends to share weal and woe, thats joy.


I dont know what suddenly jolted the pessimistic mind of mine but its really food for thought.

4-5 years down the road. I gotta be more serious. I gotta be less jokey, ( or lame ). I'm earning a living for god's sake. No more dilly dally.

yea, the usual sayings come to mind. Forget about the past and live on with life blah blah blah.. But if we dont relook at the past, we would take everything infront of us for granted and when we lose them, we cry. Crocodile tears.

I tell myself. Online friends are not the way to go around. I should interact with new people, meet new friends. Yet, I dont. Irony.

I am supposed to be in bed right now but I feel that I should get this off my chest. Get this demon off my chest.

I dont know about the future nor i wanna know what it has in store for me. I will probably die of starvation.

Tranced?

ITS SO FRIGGING BORING!!! EVERYONE'S EITHER OUT OR MUGGING. AHHH!
:(

xxx

Ok, for some reason I've started to like trance. For a period of time I thought that Trance was boring music going over and over again. But now I'm starting to like it. Maybe because I'm bored beyond tears?

( - x - )= +

Boring x bored = lots and lots of fun!
Holla's theory of boredom. Memorise it.

So back to trance. I've recently illegaly downloaded got hold of a music album entitled Dream Dance Vol 36 - The best of dream House and Trance.

Its a good album, just for the bored loner person like me. Read: Holla's theory.

Anyways, there are some good tracks. Take this for example.

Dj Tatana feat. Morris - Today is Tommorrow

Its a good track, nice catchy tune to it. Wanted to find the lyrics and i stumbled on Dj Tatana's picture.

No not the 'gook' in specs lah. Its the woman! I did get a little shocked in the first place as through stereotypicsy Deejays are supposed to be men. Dj Sammy, Dj Encore etc. Almost ALL electronica groups have men as their main. Groove Coverage, many many more.

Weird thing is, most electronica, Techno, Eurodance, Trance , all have males behind the DJ set and the females doing the singing. This time, its different! Its tah other way round!

Dj Tatana. Er.. nevermind her clothing



Kudos to that girl behind the DJ set. You got my admiration.

Anyways, those who want the song can pm me on msn @ desmond_yyc@hotmail.com.

xxx

Please, if you dont own the song ( or album in this case), please delete it within 24 hours. Or wait for matah to raid my sorry home.

Gahmen say one. One song fine 10k, up to 100k.

Gahmen is teh win!

Bad day

Today is the day of the Chemistry Practical Prelims. It was the only thing that i could score in cos my Chem Theory is CMI one.

Well, it seemed to be a good day. The beautiful funny dumb until canot dumb Priscilla Reetesh ( or is it Reteesh ) came into the class to mark the attendance. For some reason even non-living things hate her.

Somehow, she got the wrong attendance sheet. Well, my guess is that the admin thinks she is the teacher-in-charge cleaner or something and wants her to chuck the paper for them.

I mean, you cant expect anything much from a teacher who previously used 45 minutes to go through 2 freaking comprehension questions.

xxx

Well, teacher aside, the chem prac was ok. Abit harder than the standard Elim pactice paper tho. Well, thank god i have clever people sitting around me i can just peep refer to what they do and have a rough idea.

xxx

Well, my damn toothache acted up again, and it lasted me for the damn whole 45 min bus ride.
I had to like grab my cheeks using my hand, and looked like a damn handsome boy idiot to prevent the pain. And if thats not worse enough, some XXX school malay lian came to sit next me on the bus ride. I mean, i have nothing agaist Malays but I cannot stand those ACBC XMMs. As the usual racist gentlemanly guy i always am, i did not care about them.

Malays are cool people, they win tiger cup for Singapore!

xxx

Poped two panadols, i guess its working now, the toothache's not acting up but imm hungry cuz i din eat anything for dinner cuz of the toothache. Gonna eat aspirin if my toothache still stays, zzzz

DEMOCRATIC WALL

Man. So little days and so many things have happened. Not that i want it but hey, I AM enjoying it.

This is the story. Someone ( indentity kept secret ) talking something about the useless Student Councillors (SC) on his blog and the next thing he knows he's being flamed by supposedly braindead Student Council who maybe all the well doesnt know how to hold an argument proper.

I really wonder, is being a student councillor so good? I used to aspire to be a prefect in my primary school times, which i did and hell did i enjoy myself. That blue sash around you was like the 1337 'i pwn joo' significance in the school. Well, i miss those times of enjoyment..
.
.
.
But those were the times where my mind was still 10+ and i still did not know how to think deeper. But now i know how to, I find being a SC or a prefect is pure crap.

Think about it SC, you are made to run and run and slog and slog ur guts out to get things done. Kudos to you. How many times have you gone home late? Kudos to you. But the simple question stays.
WHAT HAVE YOU GOT IN RETURN? NOTHING!

You dont need to be a PhD to be able to figure that you are working for nothing!
Theres a popular chinese saying, " In this world theres no free lunch. "
Obviously the whole management is ripping you braindead people of free lunch and you guys are give them it with a WIDE SMILE!

Its real sad man.
Even those farmers in the collective farms in old Russia still got their pay, although low but, IT IS STILL PAY THAT MATTERS!
WHAT HAVE YOU GOT IN RETURN? NOTHING!

And to think you people are defending your right of giving the management unwaged labour where a SANE person will ask for some rewards.

Right, you people switch off our lights every single day. One thing is, I dont see the point! For what? To save like 5 mins of electricity every day? Like wtf.
WE ARE SEC 4s ALREADY WE HAVE HANDS TO OFF IT OURSELVES. WE HAVE EARS TO LISTEN FOR THE MUSIC. WE HAVE LEGS TO RUN IF WE ARE ABOUT TO BE LATE.

See, even THP scolded us for being late for assembly. If you look at it indirectly, SHES DISSING YOU SC FOR NOT GETTING US THERE ON TIME! SEE! Even the principal hates you. Think about it, she doesnt 'give a shit' to what you SC ppl do for the school man.
WHAT HAVE YOU GOT IN RETURN? NOTHING!

If THP thinks like that, ' Do away with the SC, they cant even get the people to assembly on time. '
My vote is for her if she runs for the next president.

Come to think of it, the school's management sucks quite bad, yup with our O'tana if it didnt suck Hitler will rise from his ashes. Well, THP and O' Tana make quite a good tag team.
.
.
.
AT SUCKING.
They can call themselves La Resistance or La 'I suck and I dont care' Resistance for nuts, who always got their asses whooped by a retard called Eugene and his uncle William Regal.

Lets go back to the CCA saga. The school management closed somme CCAs giving the reason of lack of funds and MEDALS. SEE! I TOLD YOU that school IS FREAKING COMMUNIST. DENG XIAOPING WITHOUT THE EVENTUAL PROGRESS AND GREAT LEADERS.

DOWN WITH MARXISM OR HUIPISM!! BROTHERS UNITE!

Yes, loss of funds eh. And in my memory do i remember that last Saturday 6th of August was the opening of the NEW ART GALLERY! READ : GALLERY! So you people telling me a cheque flew down from the sky and was cashed to 'that school'had like 'please open an art gallery, it pwns.' writted all over it? Loss of funds? Hypocrites.

Heard that that school, for some bizarre reason, was named Center of Excellence of Arts. Yes. Center of Serangoon Central or Serangoon Avenue 3? Which then fuelled the idea of the Art Gallery. Heard some Sharman Theraeratman oso came. Which included reporters i guess. Bottom line. WE NEED MORE TRANSPARENCY!
.
.
.
3 MINS OF FAME AT THE EXPENSE OF 300 PEOPLE LOSING THEIR CCAS.
Checkmate!



Talking about the lines of cancelling CCAs, well, some didnt perform, so they had to be axed. Come to think of it, it was really like Hitler. He once said this on the days of losing,"I dont care if my people die or not as they are of no consequence of any sort"( thanks dus for this ) . This is plain dumb. She thinks she is Furher or something. ChooWeiBin is so right. Singapore students just DONT KNOW HOW TO SPEAK UP. When she was going on her axing rampage, did the SC write a petition of some sort to stop her? NO. Sadly to say. Well, cuz, IT IS NONE OF THEIR BUSINESS! Wait till the SC gets axed and you cry until ur guts out oso no one care.

Seriously, like what my fren had said, do away with the SC, back with the Prefectorial Board. For approx. 90-2= 88 years the school had been running properly with the PB. And you people claim that without the SC the school will be in chaos? Utter bulls#it. LOOK AT THE FACTS MAN.

IMHO, the SC are just mindless peons doing the school's dirty jobs. Representing the school body? Bullsh$t. Look at a certain E1 councillor. Exactly does what someone tells him to do. Man, have a mind of your own. Like what my fren and I joked, when they higher authorities tell them to jump down they will and then defend their point of jumping down, cuz it was for the students.
See the link? I dont.

SC was made to represent the students. Right, and if doing things that is against the student's wishes is representing them, then kudos to you. HAVE the SC done anything that has rebukked a school's decision because the students did not like it? NO.


On a final note, think about this,
HAVE THE SC REALLY DONE THINGS THAT THE STUDENTS WILL ENJOY?
OR ARE THEY SIMPLY DOING THINGS FOR THE SCHOOL'S MANAGEMENT?




Note: All schools and names have been kept confidential because i dont want to be caught in a lawsuit or extra detention.
