His answer : "Lol!"

To Moe : "I miss your 20 minute kisses and angry rough anal sex in your security attire"
His answer : "Wtf?!"

:: A model, idiot ::

:: Introduction ::

Back in 2002, my brother was given a bass guitar as a present. It was passed on to yours truly in less than a year since his passion for music went kaput. That bass, was passed on to Bob, who used it for early Oligarchy gigs and recordings (can be heard in the early recordings of "Shot till perfection" ep and also the "Reading between the lines" Ep).

Last year, I bought my younger brother another bass (which i call "Da Asshole"). "Da Asshole" was used for most of my home recordings but has finally choose to die out on me (ok, in some ways it ia still functional but i reckon i have to spend ALOT of vitamin M to fix it). Since "Da Asshole" has truly become its namesake, I finally got back that old bass of mine from Bob. 5 years on loan and its back with me now.

Why is this bass guitar important? Firstly, it's my first bass guitar. Secondly, that bass guitar is no longer in production. I truly love Samick guitars (my first electric guitar is a Samick strat copy).

Now here is where things get very very interesting. When I got back the bass guitar, it looks tired. The pickups, at least part of it, wasn't working due to the number of years it has been used. The electronics were begging to just retire. The neck was dirty and worn out. Every metal piece on it looked like it has went thru WW2. There was constant buzzing on the fret board. So what do I do? I went out to get it fixed up and custom-ed to how I would like it to be.

People..... introducing.... "Da Jerk"!

I won't go to details of the specs. But on a nutshell, its a Samick Precision bass loaded with split P's pickups with a single volume knob (just like "Cruella" which has one humbucker with a single volume knob). I got a really cool guitar tech to rewire everything, polish up the neck and the metal pieces and lastly to fix up the trust rod on the neck. How does it sound like? Click on the video below. (Sorry, recorded it straight from my comp).

So there you have it. Now I have 2 out of production Samicks that has been customized to my liking. "Da Jerk" will certainly be part of something great. Just wait for it.

:: Introducing a new friend soon ::

Do you know who is "Da Jerk"? My next post will be about him. Its going to be uber sweet! Wait here for it people!

Thinking of making this my logo. Possible?

:: Lover's letter ::

Dear lover,

Your love to me is like yogurt. Rich, creamy, pasteurized milk. You are milk that can be eaten. The multi-flavors you give to our love is purely enriching. It took us a long time to change what was first milk, into yogurt. You strengthen my bones and prevent arthritis. I savor all the rich creamy flavors which only you can offer me.

Your ex-husband

P.s - I'm VERY lactose intolerant.

This isn't a letter for my gf. So please babe, don't murder me.

:: Respect! ::

:: Busy busy boy ::

Been busy as an ant for the past few days. I have to

1) Edit pictures of dragons and dinosaurs that I took
2) Make an awesome entry of it
3) Redo some info on my flickr page and lastly
4) Remix a Lunarin song from their album "Duae"

No, I wasn't invited to do it. More info to come on this. Just got the tracks on Sunday morning (around 2 am i think) and have been mixing it ever since. Got it close to 60% done. Hope they won't sue me for the things I've did to their song (since 2 out of 3 of them are lawyers). Here's some cool quotes about work that you can mercilessly use.

"Every day I get up and look through the Forbes list of the richest people in America. If I'm not there, I go to work"

"Whenever you are asked if you can do a job, tell 'em, "Certainly, I can!" Then get busy and find out how to do it."

"The remaining work to finish in order to reach your goal increases as the deadline approaches."

"If you tell the boss you were late for work because you had a flat tire, the next morning you will have a flat tire."

"One of the symptoms of an approaching nervous breakdown is the belief that one's work is terribly important."

"The reward for work well done is the opportunity to do more."

"I always arrive late at the office, but I make up for it by leaving early."

More updates soon people. Its a haircut for me soon. Booyah!

:: The TV Voice ::

How do you convince people that a lie is the truth? Well, there's this concept that I use. Its called..... "The TV Voice" concept. What is this concept you might ask me. Here is the answer.

"The TV Voice" concept is where a person, when telling a lie, would do so with the following actions:

1) Deep baritone TV reporter voice
2) Professional annunciation of words and lastly
3) A very convincing look

Below is a good example on the usage of "The TV Voice" concept. Do listen and watch it. Try it yourself while looking at a mirror. But DO NOT, i repeat, DO NOT try this to people without sufficient practice! Once you are caught using this concept wrongly, people will know that you're lying. More videos to come to show perfect examples of "The TV Voice" concept.

:: The comma effect ::

Recently at work, I learn this new concept of merging sentences to make grammatical sense. I like to call it... "THE COMMA EFFECT". So how do we use this "Comma Effect" you might ask. Here is the definition of "THE COMMA EFFECT".

The Comma Effect.

The concept of "The Comma Effect" will only come to play if it fulfills one or more of the following;
1) More than one point is needed in one sentence
2) If the sentence written is too long
3) To make more sense in the sentence.

How does it work?
Lets see an example.

Example 1) Wan is a jerk, even though he is insanely leuwau, who writes a blog.

If you take the sentence before and after the commas the sentence would still make sense. Like so.

Without the commas
Wan is a jerk who writes a blog.

So what becomes of the sentence in the comma. Well, that is to just add on more information relevant to the sentence. Lets see another one.

Insurance Agent : Yes the insurance coverage you want is cheap, although in the event that you don't die from the accident you won't get any money and you probably have to work thru the pain or beg for money or even sell your house to pay for it, and well suited for you

Have fun with "The Comma Effect". Don't limit yourself to just written sentences. Go!

:: The lost Merlion ::

Awhile back i took a photo of some "lost" merlions. Now, after some research. Here is the answer to that riddle. You can sure check out Wikipedia or Infopedia to know that they are WRONG! Someone needs to update those things....

The Merlions, which you can see here were taken at Ang Mo Kio Avenue 1. Completed in Aug 1998, the Merlions were built to welcome residents and visitors to the precinct. (Thanks to Ms Vivien Ang from the Ang Mo Kio - Yio Chu Kang Town council)

Instead of the stated 5 Merlions that are recognized by the Singapore Tourism Board, there are actually 8 Merlions recognized by them. They are,

- Merlion Park x 2 (main Merlion and the Merlion cub)
- Sentosa x 1
- Mount Faber x 1
- STB x 1
- Ang Mo Kio x 2
- Lilliputt x 1 (located at East Coast Park)

Thanks to Mrs Angela Tan from the Singapore Tourism Board for the information.

Now the truth has been listed. People, remember where you know this from. Spread the word! Knowledge is power! BOOYAH!
