Whistler Post

The very 1st impression which I got when I was listening to Whistler Post‘s song titled ‘this is for something cool’ is just like listening to the much better version of Luminous Orange. I haven’t seen them playing a live gig before (since I live in Surabaya) , but I heard that they already performed on some gigs like Tribute to 90’s Shoegaze in Jakarta just not a long time ago. Can’t wait to see them play a gig here!

Beck - "Loser"

This should be (hopefully) the last semester of my study , every student seems to be busy with their own businesses (I’m not included). Some of my friends (the genious ones) have even graduated from the college , and of course I’m wishing the best for them. What I have noticed from this last semester is that most of my friends are hardly met , most of them might spend their times by working on their final projects at their homes and the rest of them might just spend their times by sleeping all day, doing nothing πŸ™‚ And What’s more interesting is that some of my friends have started their own businesses in IT , there a lot of software-houses growing within my cLass (there might be about 3 – 4 software houses being established), lots of enterprenurs , lots of technopreneurs (I also noticed that some of them have also started their online businesses) πŸ™‚

And Why the hell am I still sitting here ? πŸ˜‰

Bloody Monday

First of all , don’t ever think that I’m a j-dorama lover/manga lover , cause i’m not one of those guys who got obsessed by those japs-stuffs LOL. But In this post I’d like to review a very stunning j-dorama which is based on Manga titled ‘Bloody Monday‘. Bloody Monday is suitable for you guys who like hackers/terrorism/spies – related stories! Bloody Monday ‘s main character is Fujimaru , which is known as a genious hacker and He even got caught once (they said he was a genious , but why did he get caught? πŸ˜› ) In this drama , Fujimaru’s personality is more like ‘save-the-world-hacker-type’ , He helped Jap’s national security agents to trace terrorists whose purpose is to vanish Tokyo by using a deadly biological virus bought from Russian terrorist network.

Some of the hacking/cracking methods performed in this drama are even real, on some episodes I found some methods such as Distributed Password Cracking , Vnc remote hacking and even a JAIL method !

Here’s the screenie :

2009

fuck yeah,,it’s 2009!

a short Field Report : Supersonic SoundFest 2008 in Surabaya

It’s been a while since I attended the last similar gigs in my city . It’s very nice to know that there are lot of new bands/artists growing in the scene within these years (2008 – 2009). Meeting a lot of old friends from the scene was very delightful , because I just don’t want to lose contact with them. I could feel that bunch of fresh and creative ideas were coming when I met them. πŸ™‚

So here it is , the field report on the gig that i just attended tonight (26/12/08) which was titled ‘Supersonic SoundFest 2008′. SSF is known to be the first national shoegazer bands’ gathering and tour which is held from 18/12/08 to 28/12/08 in each different city. (jakarta – bandung – surabaya – jogjakarta)

I came late to the gig which had already started at 18.30 , and I just arrived there at 20.00 (because I had to wait for Boncu to pick me up to the gig). And We just missed the opening act ! (which was performed by Sharesprings from jakarta) By the time I got there , I met Anton (from Others) , Mbeng (from Friday) and many other friends. They told me that Velvet Heaven were about to perform. I rushed straight into the venue in order not to miss their performance. They opened their act by performing their single titled ‘Delirium’. During their perfomance of their 3rd song , it started raining ! Ignoring the rain , they just kept playing until the end of the song which caused their guitars/effects to be real wet! After velvet heaven’s performance , the event was stopped for 30 – 45 minutes until the rain stopped. And even so , they decided to move the stage to the indoor part! ^_^

In the next 10-15 minutes , we got Jelly Belly on the stage ! They performed 3 songs , the most memorable song was their last song which is the song from Slowdive titled Alison ! yay ,, it’s time to sing along.. πŸ˜› they played it very very well.. (it was almost even better than the original one! πŸ˜› ) For the next performance , we got Mellon Yellow ! They performed 2 of their singles (if im not mistaken) which are Teacher Novel and Kevin. Nothing more to say bout their performance but giving TWO THUMBS UP for them ! they were so fckin awesome. admit it. πŸ˜› I missed the next performance because I had to eat some meals with my big bro and Boncu at Klampis. (we finally had fried rice anyway)

Back to the venue (rotten apple) , OTHERS were already performing. They’re one of the most well-known postrock-ish band from Surabaya. You should check their myspace , these guys are fuckin awesome too πŸ˜› I’d say that their performance was quite stunning ! πŸ™‚ it reminds me of God is astronaut , Laura , and other similar bands.. you guys rock! the last performance that I saw (because i had to go home) was Lorelei ! Who doesn’t know about this band! If you do , please make sure that you don’t come from the past . LOL. They (or he actually?) performed 3 of their singles which are I know you’ll die soon , Life extension and the other one which I don’t quite remember πŸ˜‰ Lorelei is great πŸ™‚ I could feel the ambience from their songs.. πŸ˜› quite stunning too! Ok , that’s all for tonight (did I miss Sarin? :P) I decided to go home πŸ™‚

lazy eye

I’ve been waiting
i’ve been waiting for this moment all my life
but it’s not quite right

and this ‘real’
it’s impossible if possible
at who’s blind word
so clear but so unheard

i’ve been waiting
i’ve been waiting for this silence all night long
it’s just a matter of time

to appear sad
with the same ‘ol decent lazy eye
fixed to rest on you
aim free and so untrue

everyone’s so intimately rearranged
everyone can focus clearly with such shine

everyone’s so intimately rearranged
everyone can focus clearly with sunshine

lost and loaded
still the same ‘ol decent lazy eye
straight through your gaze
that’s why i said i relate
i said we relate
it’s so fun to relate

it’s the room the sun and the sky
it’s the room the sun and the sky

i’ve been waiting
i’ve been waiting for this moment…

Deepset – Malaysian postrockers

I’ve never heard of the existence of this band until My big brotha gave me the ‘copy’ of their album. Introducing Deepset , an experimental post-rock band from Kuala Lumpur , Malaysia. I’ve been always interested in digging Asian scene of post-rock and shoegaze music. Just like few years ago , I was introduced to the music that created by Damn Dirty Apes (another KL’s post-rock band) which really makes me fall in love to their album (ape kill ape) . Unlike Damn Dirty Apes , Deepset ‘s songs sound more like the combination of Explosion In The Sky and Mono (Japan).

Here’s the cover of their newest album :

Tracks listing :

  1. Put your dream to sleep
  2. Where were they
  3. Close to a cure
  4. Have you ever danced with the devil under the pale moonlight?
  5. If you can still hear this whispering , you are dying
  6. Every instance in time is a journey of hope
