Peter Gabriel - A justified diva

Many have accused Peter Gabriel of being a diva when he refused to perform his song, Down to Earth at the Oscars recently even though it was nominated. His reason being that they did not allocate individual performance time to the three songs on that night. I however, think it is rightly so he refused, for the medley of the three songs was a disaster.

The reasons being:

1. It was each performed in succession with no change of dancers between each songs. Come on, Indian styled dancers with a song like Down To Earth?
2. The last part of the three medleys brought together the three songs being sung together. It was a catastrophe.
3. I am not an expert or anything but I felt the dancers dancing to the Slumdog Millionaire's song was not authentic enough in terms of the Indian dance style. They looked odd.
4. John Legend that stood in replacement was a good singer and all but he couldn't sing it as well as Peter Gabriel did.
5. I think Down To Earth should have won. The other song won only because it was basking in the worked-up frenzy everyone is getting into about the movie.
6. Overall, the performance was a fiasco.

Catch Jonas Brothers in 3D in Malaysia

Yes, yes it not something you would expect me to go watch. However, because I thought the Jonas Brothers 3-D Concert Movie was something different, I went to watch it yesterday when they had a press screening for it. Wasn't too bad I guess and the 3-D concert experience was rather good. I wonder whether other artists will catch on and have their own 3-D concert movies though. It could be a whole new craze in the music industry. Fans of the Jonas Brothers, you'll definitely want to watch this when it opens soon.

Emma Watson at the '09 BAFTAS

........ Since when did Emma Watson become a woman? And a hot one too... What spell did she use? Hermione Granger certainly doesn't fit the notion of witches being warty and hunchbacked, and all the usual shit.

You need to be a mathematician to figure this out ?

I'm sure many of you have complained about the dumbass service from local phone companies. Well take a look at this.

Looks like the US phone companies are sometimes just as bad. The grass is not necessarily greener on the other side after all.

Will Pakatan Rakyat lose Perak?

Frankly, it doesn't really affect me. However, I really hope that they do lose Perak to the BN. It's a fitting retribution for them as much as Anwar's fiasco of his empty promises of trying to topple over the government is to be taken into view. Didn't he do the exact same thing at that time? Trying to pull over BN men over to his side? Why the bitterness now PR supporters? BN using corruption and dirty tactics to win the state? What did Anwar use? Flowers? Or maybe it's because the PR doesn't have enough cash to offer? If that's that case, a failed attempt at committing a crime is still a crime after all.

I find the situation actually hilarious. If you actually go over to Lim Kit Siang's blog and read the comments their supporters are writing on the issue you'll be laughing your ass off too. Have you forgotten that Anwar tried to do the same thing as well? Or are you just turning a blind eye to that?

People in glass houses shouldn't throw stones. Couldn't be any truer.

And I would like to reiterate: the PR and BN are just two sides of the same coin.

Change? Where?

Update: So it looks like they have lost Perak, though they are not going down without fighting. You should read this. Anwar's plan did not materialized because it failed, not because of the lack of trying. He tried, oh boy, he tried very hard. Looks like the PR got a taste of their own medicine, and they hate the taste too. We have some major case of sour grapes going on here.

Update 2: I read someone's comment on another blog regarding the whole issue and I found it terribly funny.

Just because the thief you sent (Anwar) was too stupid to pick the lock, doesn’t mean he did not try…

How true.

PETA's sexy vegetarians not suitable for TV

It does look sexually suggestive but I don't think it's anymore offensive than any other dribble that you can catch on TV. Such a waste.
