the boy with the diary pens his thoughts in poetry. this is where i pour out my thoughts. do not judge me by whatever's in this blog because there's so much more u need to know, so much more than meets the eye.
it's gonna be the cause of the RISE and FALL for all of us.
if u dont get what i mean. look at your surroundings..look at the society. most importantly, look at yourself.. and if you still dont get it, well...look DEEPER.
they are the main source of worldly pleasures. DESIRING what the MEDIA portrays. BELIEVING what the MEDIA portrays. we have all fallen into that trap.
the question is, " do we REALISE what's happening to us or to this world because of it? " i know i do. i AM a hypocrite in this HYPOCRISY. which is a GOOD thing, if you really really think about it and if you get the whole point of this post..
Now does anyone out there share the same thoughts as me?
gotta change this blogskin soon. bored of it. black and shades of grey. sick of it.
ouh here's a video for a change. too much words makes us go blind. so here it is, e last gig for the band called MadHatter. yea.but hey. i think everyone will remember us as the band who played music entirely not our age.haha. we've been labelled singapore's Jamiroquai after Powerjam finals. and i had people call us that dozens of times... but heck, i find it as an honour. until we find a keyboardist. and a guitarist for the band...we'll be taking a short break. we'll be back with new material, new sessionists.. and maybe a brass section too. if we can find them and if things go our way...hopefully. insyaAllah. =)
until then, we'll be polishing our soul. funk. disco. rock and...adding a fresh taste of Motown and old school R&B.
last gig currently, but we managed to go into the break...with dancers for our last gig!
thanks SDZ! to Mel or MEOW, Hanafi and Sha! Mel and me had e same thoughts.., " why didnt we think of it much much earlier...?!!". hahaha. and i gotta polish up my vocals.
i can't sleep. for the past 3 hours i've been tossing and turning on my mattress. and i guess it's getting into me after avoiding reality for sometime.... that later on might be the last of Madhatter.last.might be. and like a film going on in my mind. the memories. the fun. the music. e competitions. the gigs. for the past year, not a lot, not that long. but we have achieved so much...so much, that it's hard to take in, that MadHatter might be dying.
when i decided to join the band, i was noone. tryna search an identity of my own in music. i had no idea about the music that we dwell in. no idea. i was the last resort for a vocalist that they are finding for Yamaha Asian Beat band competition... and i tried my best to adapt.and it came as a total surprise that i managed to get the best vocalist award for that competition. the youngest in the competition, the most inexperienced out of all the other bands..now somehow, i became hooked onto it. the music. the soul. the funk. the groove. the MadHatter sound. who dares to be different. that normal listeners would find it hard to understand.
i began writing songs for e band. with a simple pen and paper and a guitar. and every tune and idea, the band has managed to turn it into a professional sounding original. i have a few songs still in my mind. but i am not sure if it's all matters now...
the music and the times with the band has made me found another side of myself.a side of myself that i appreciate. i have learnt a lot from the times with MadHatter. and truthfully it has been a milestone being with the band because i evolved musically and vocally with the band. MadHatter became a part of my life.
People have already known us for our signature sound. people have known me to be the crazy dancing prancing vocalist of madhatter too. and i had high hopes for the band, because of the achievements and the support we had for the 15mths that we've been together. i had fun. and i know e rest does too. but i guess...people change. and well. tension raised, commitment issues cropped up. sad, but thats reality... if only we could take time to think about what we went thru e last 15mths as a band..and figure out a way to resolve the issues, compromise our musical minds and work somethin up...if only.
well after today, Madhatter's gonna be handicapped. Madhatter's only me, the groove and the beat. vocalist. bassist and drummer.
trappedinathingcalledlife. haha the more i think of it, the more it makes sense. life. just plain ridiculous at times. just plain boring at times. just plain dope at times. its the last term of my poly life. the last lap. ahhhh!! i'm worried but hey, what e heck. i've gone this far. and i survived with no official music background. amazing, come to think of it. i had no regrets whatsoever. after so looooong of searching and discovering, i finally can say, i found something i can do best. heh. the best 3 years of my life. well minus those unnecessary crap. that RECENTLY happened. and those in e past.haha.
well. MADHATTER will be hitting the stage again this wednesday's lunchshow. at Moberly's Amphitheatre 12pm. we're INVITED to play for the last lunchshow of the year. COOLshit. haha. and Irsyad, Jeff, Pravin and Bah will play too. they are called STEREOSHOCK. sounds like fun, madhatter and stereoshock playing alongside each other.
