Caring is Creepy.

Caring is Creepy by The Shins is one of my all-time favourite songs. It's a unique composition of melodies and timing and is lyrically, beautiful. I love songs where the lyrics are not replicated as a chorus and instead, forms a complete story with a start and end. Poetry in music is so rare today. …

I long to paint again.

I have been living back home for a little more than 6 months now - how time flies. Needless to say, it's been hard fitting my life from a whole apartment into one room. My personality has been boxed and stored. I miss having the freedom of the easel constantly sitting the living room, waiting …

I, thus turned my attention to the Bio Channel, featuring the Brat Pack. Yes, the Brat Pack comes on the Bio Channel right after Nelson Mandela …

Two Brendan Fraser movies in one week?

It started out with Encino Man - I'm always thrilled to see this movie on, reminds me so much of growing up. (if I ever catch Airheads, I'd shit myself) With the exception of the almost always annoying Pauly Shore (he ruined Class Act too) - it introduced me to Brendan Fraser, one of my …
