in the background....

So I totally missed Kimora Lee's appearance at Starhill as I was busy with a different project. I guess our interview didn't quite happen either but no worries, I was immortalised at the event by a local blogger who apparently takes horrible pictures just for the heck of it.

This picture is all kinds of funny though. Gotta' love his sense of humour in all his event shots.

Here's the original video. My hosting/directing debut. First and last I tell ya!

Music Monday: The Naked and Famous

The Naked and the Famous hail from New Zealand and are a post-punk revival band.

What's post-punk revival you ask?

That's basically what you get when you take inspiration from the original sounds and aesthetics of garage rock of the 1960s and post-punk and New Wave of the late 1970s. (according to uncle Wiki of course)

Think Yeah Yeah Yeahs, The White Stripes, The Strokes,  The Vines and Arctic Monkeys perhaps?

The female vocalist of The Naked and Famous has a darn cool name! Alisa Xayalith. Now where did that come from?!

The song Young Blood was prominently featured in the Pilot episode of Elementary, the American Sherlock Holmes remake by CBS. And then some of the other songs were on Gossip Girls, The Secret Cirle, Vampire Diaries, Grey's Anatomy etc.  Fun stuff!

How do you know...?

How do you know when that restless feeling stems from a spirit of 
discontent... or adventure?
