G'day Everyone! Pictures First

Not enough time to write a post, but more than happy to share photos. Enjoyed the last couple of days at the zoo and the Olympic Park.

How you guys doing, mate?

Sssh, I'm currently feeling like toast, as I was burnt to a crisp yesterday at Bondi beach. Will be heading off to Brisbane to have a quiet time in a few days, and I promise to upload photos by then.

If Machines Could Sing...

They'd sound (well, look) like this:

Daft Punk is Alive!

Robot Rock!

Between a frenetic chorus of distorted/synthesized vocals and flashing fireworks, nothing comes close to the spectacle that Daft Punk dished out the past year. I am still snapping my fingers, that they did not come to a reasonable SEA location, moreover, I missed their performance in Australia by 2 weeks. Draaaaat!

Still the CD makes up for it, partially, as it's a mashup of their biggest hits from the past decade. It's such a treat that they included Music Sounds Better With You,such an underrated hit from 1998. The spacesuits are still making us move, and I hope, that I get to see them, one more time.


And to think that I bought it for 50 pesos, LCD Soundsystem's second album, Sound Of Silver actually strikes gold. What's really amazing from both artists is that the vocals take a step back as the showpiece of the song, but it's actually the accompaniments and instrumentation.

Strikes Gold!


All righty folks, I'm off to see the Australian Open, and will be updating from there. Happy New Year, and show off your robot rock moves this 2008!
