I've been thinking alot lately, due to some reason, i tend to think alot, and dont bother ask me why, i will have no answers.

I know in this world, anything is possible, well to me, some aspect does. And i also do alot of in depth-slip-my-pillow-high brain imagination, and, whats future to me? what am i going to do? will the things i do now is gonna affect my future? or do i really need to work damn hard to achieve my goals? i notice the people around me, some already succeed in life, finish studies with good results, having good job, and from then it is adulthood to them; yet i found that some still struggling, trying too hard to be JUST LIKE OTHERS, i mean....i know they wanna have a good future too, who doesnt?? and there goes their passion, dreams, and more important... their true identity.

Well, im lucky enough to be who i am now, after passing the path that i found out is difficult for me to survive in, and although back in malaysia, the path now i choose may seem UNPROFESSIONAL to some point of view of the elder generation, but im not ready to give up, im not falling this time, and i am going to proof to u that i will be good in this field, i will crush u with my knowledge of this field. Thats why in the end, i still choose what am i doing now, despite having some tough time leaving the previous path and hoop to this. But good at this, so why the heck are people looking down at me?? I know its true that in this mainstream line im going for, it may sound dangerous, one wild ride, if u make it, u'll hit the top, but if u screw it, u'll be nothing, but to my point of view, its not true.....i mean music business might be dealing alot with drugs, sex, alcohol.....wake up the next day and u have no idea what had happen and more case scenario. But i only can say, to be stable and have a life in this field, all u have to do is, determination..... and dealing with your evil urges, and u'll be fine.

And no offence to the other fields, im not saying u have made the wrong choice, IM JUST BEING ME ! ! and of cause i respect u doing your thing, and all i can say is, be who u are, choose ur dreams, make a goal and FUCKING ACHIVE IT. Every field has its own specials and creative side, so all the best to the people i know in persuing their goals. 

By the mean time, i would like to give credit to the people around me, u guys are awesome, without u, there is no way i'll find my self, and i will just be stuck in the black hole of me. Anyways, i will be so damn busy with studio sessions for the next few weeks, yea....means i will be spending whole lots of time in the studio, non stop music is coming baby....

And yes u shall see me rise. 

current mood - feeling great finding my own needs.

And u think thats it huh??? when im in Yamaha booth, i was looking around their new bass guitars and trying out some gear, then i come to a point that i was so stuck to the new Yamaha billy Sheehan signature bass, keep fooling around with it, and then i stop and just stare at the bass because of its beauty, then someone from behind me say something to me while i was holding the bass up to look at the neck shape, "she's the bomb eh", i thought it was the yamaha salesman, but the voices seems so familiar, then i turn to look who is it.....




SHIT.............. ! ! !

Billy Sheehan him self looking at me from the back while i was enjoying the beauty of his signature bass, i was damn shock, i stun for quite some time, and i could not believe this would happen to me, the legend i look up to, the bassist that inspire me to pick up my first bass, the hero that i only wacth him from TV.....and now his fucking behind me....i told my slf, SNAP UP EDWARD ! ! and act normal ! !

Then i chated with him for quite a while, but suprisingly, those blardy locals around here..... only 1 out of 10 knew he was Billy Sheehan, others even whisper...whos that bloke....but Billy was so down to earth, his doesnt act like his some super rock star, his there as a professional musician.

*Breath in deep, holds chest high*

" music to me is a new thing everyday, i never stop learning, that is what that drives me for something new, dont call me master just because ive been around longer in the music scene than u, and work hard to achieve what u really desire for, dont give up "

All about sound

All right, ive been thinking, since i am doing music and recording stuff, why not explain to my readers that how sound work. Some of u might already know in depth, but anyway im gonna post about sound, so that u guys can get to know some stuff that i need to deal with.

Right, sound.....hmmmm, it can be defined as a wave motion in air or other elastic media, any exictation of hearing mechanism that result in perception of sound, and this flactuation can travel through any matter state and can not be transmitted through vacuum, although certain aspects of sound will change depending on the medium, and the generation of sound relies upon the vibration of body and it is transmitted as a longitudiual wave as opposed to a transverse wave form.

How do we measure them? by frequency, amplitude.

So what is frequency? Frequency is the measure of capacity of alterations of a periodic signal, and it express cycles per second, to familiarise it, Hz(hertz). And in frequencies, one cycle of a wave includes one compression and one rarefraction.Frequency and wave length are inversely proportional, meaning the higher the frequency, the shorter the wave length.

All above is only one wave length, so when 2 waves are combined, we called it "superimposed over each other", their amplitude will reinforce and cancel out depending on their relative phase shift, meaning if wave A's starting frequency is high compression and ends with low rarefraction meets wave B, where starting with low rarefraction and end with high compression. These two waves will cancel each other out, and we hear nothing, although the meter bar on my mixer shows reaction, but we dont hear it, cause human is not super sensitive on hearing, thats why it is so important for me, a music production student to know bout this, some chords have different frequencies, i dint know bout that untill i study bout it, so when creating a song make sure when it comes to recording, dont go for the super high notes and mash up with the super low notes.

If two waves occuring simultaneously have the same ampltude sign (+/+) they are said to be "correlated" and will act constructively, meaning if two same kind of waves meet, it will not cancel out, in fact it will balance it.

Well, i think if i continue on this, it will take me forever, hahaha, all above that i just describe, it is only page one of my notes, and imagine having 100 pages of notes, how far could it go......damn far i say....hahaha

Anyway, Summer is here ! ! although i dont feel like im in the middle of summer, still damn cold and raining.....and YES!!! LONDON INTERNATIONAL MUSIC SHOW, tomorrow, Steve vai, Joe Satriani, Billy Sheehan, Paul Gilbert, all are gonna be there ! plus new gadgets, new amps, i bet Gibsons booth is gonna be a killer, cant wait....

till then take care and have a good day

current mood - Damn happy, cause finally get to meet the REAL GUITAR HERO

A month of sports madness

A really good month for any sports fanatics, well, for those who know me better, surely know im deeply into sports since young, been heavily connected into sports life back in Malaysia, playing basketball for school and college then State team then into national junior squard, and for those who only reads my blog, thinks that i only DO rock and music stuff.

Anyway since im a basketballer, of cause im gonna put Nba into the top of my very own TO-WATCH list. Just because im now living in UK does not mean my love for basketball has faded ! Anyway Nba finals is back again, and this time around, this two teams had reach the finals more than others, they face each other the most in finals, they are the rivals of decade, maybe century. Representing the powerhouse from east, the BOSTON CELTICS, and west, the LOS ANGELES LAKERS. Ahhhhhhh~~~~~~~~ it sure bring back memories, the legendary moments, Lary Bird goin againts Magic Johnson, Kareem goin to the rim defended by Walton.

Larry And Magic

Put it in this generation, Pierce slash and spins towards the hoop while tall and big but fast Radmanovic trying to stop it, Kevin Garnett never stops firing his whole team, while Pau Gasol is brilliant, and not to miss out newly named MVP Kobe Bryant trying to earn his team a championship ring without the help of mighty Shaq, of cause Ray Allen will do anything at cost to deny that. All i can say is history do repeat it self.

Garnett and Odom

Kobe will be the man who leads LA

Paul Pierce itching for the Champion Ring

(L)Gasol trying to catch his best moment ;
(R) While Radmanovic is showing his best.

For my point of view, i think Boston has more Champions attitute, i think they have more chance to win the title, they do have the advantage of big players, BIG 3, Ray Allen is starting his downtown shooting spree, Paul Pierce is taking more chances and delivering for the Celtics, on top of any, Kevin Garnetts preseance in the low post is the most influencual. Without any doubts i really think he deserves the most defensive player award. But of cause, im not saying LA has no chances at all, i think they had the better bench player, young and dangerous, and hunger for being champions, Farmar, Sasha, Mbenga,Walton, all of them gives 150% to LA, when they are on the court, they do their job, complete it and make use most of their court minutes.

Odom, still has more years to go while being talented

Boston BIG 3, Paul Pierce(34), Kevin Garnett(5), Ray Allen(20)

My verdict, GAME 7, Boston champions. The history of rivalry between LA an Boston is never ending.


And lets move on, EURO 2008, YES ! ! watched the first matches just now, dissapointed in Czech Republic, they could have done much better. Portugal starts off great, 2-0 is expected from them. I am waiting for the "DEATH" group to start, killing each other HARD, as 3 of European GIANTS are in that group. And yea...its sad that England dint even qualify, tsk tsk tsk, a country full with world class player cant deliver any, i think its the previous manager that cost them lossing the place in Euro 2008.

Cech(center) will definitely not easy to get pass him

It will sure be a scoring show if his fired up.

Ronaldo, star of his club, idol of his country

The tournament sure pack it self with hell lots of YOUNG GUNS, loaded and ready to fire. Hmmm, i would say fellow spannish Fernando Torres will definitely the dangerous one, and World Player of The Year, Christiano Ronaldo, is worth focusing our eyes wathcing him and his team play. For the DARK HORSES this year, i think it would be Czech Republic, they are not catogorise as top teams who are favorable to win this year, but enough to cost each top team trouble, as Petr Cech is the one to look for. Italy...right....i doubt they will perform well, although they are the current world champions, but anything can happen in the world.Mean while France still has some potential to be in the finals, and of cause The Flying Dutch ! ! i believe they still kick ass.

Ballack is leading the Germans.

Henry migh be old, but he's wise enough to shut u down

Torres will be partner of David Villa, Europes most dangerous DUO

Italy's Bull Dog, never try taking the ball away from him

Who will win?? i know answer will surely be the one, if u guys betting on EURO, take my suggestion...hehe...the team that will win EURo 2008, is........definitely..... team Europeans. CONFIRM SURE WIN ! ! ahhahahahahahahahah..... =P


Two Championship goin on at once, what more can u ask for???if u want more, try adding in F1 season kickin in full power.... Sure satisfy me....

Class goin on at ful pace, sports season, championships...woah .....sure is KAU KAU.....

current mood - hoping boston and spain will win
