The cds and cassettes were sent out to those who applied by sunday. Those who applied after sunday will be informed of the next scheduled shipment this week. Masaalahnya i have a small staff and we all yang responsible for the packing , timbang berat menatang tu, jilat stamp (DNA gua ada kat situ) dan mengeposkan the items for..
This coming week muka-muka ni jugaklah yang akan pergi menjadi stage hands, usherers for Actorlympics. Having said that, we are also committed to making this inter-net-working dream a reality so we will do everything to ensure that this will be a memorable, wonderful experience for you all. And guess what??....
i spoke to Hattan yesterday about this thing i've created and he got excited too. Dia memang dah lama menyampah kat distributors kat Mesia ni. So we are going to work on a blues album together (something that we had planned since working together in BULI dulu) called Projek : Mak OK jer... and we will distribute it on the net the same way.
We put the power of choice back in your hands, and not the distributors who always say "ini album tara jual punyaaaaa!". The tagline for baik punya cilok is "lu cilok gua, gua cilok lu!" i feel that the distributors have forgotten the consumers. They are churning crap stuff and still expect people to pay the same prices, eventhough their cost is lowered. They keep production budgets low because they say, "the consumers won't know the difference la, wether ko rekod album kau kat Synchrosound ke atau kat dlm jamban ke!", the problem is... I FRAKKING KNOW u mangkuk yang dihayun u!!!
Kalau tidak, kenapa si Ahmad Dani dan DEWA tu pergi buat mastering kat Australia di Studios 301 (Same place FUUYO was mastered,..jangan marah!!) kenapa tak buat kat Indonesia aje. Murah pun murah. Sebabnya, mereka ambil kisah tentang kualiti muzik diorang yang akan keluar nanti dan akan terpateri seperti batu didalam cd itu. kalau hanjing kualitinya sampai bila-bilalah akan jadi hanjinng. Good musicians will always want to get the best songs, the best sound, the best performance to their audience. When the audiens get the best, they will pay for it.. Pasal i believe the basic rule when dealing with other human beings is, "gua respek lu, lu respek gua"...."gua kencing lu, lu kencing gua".
Before i sign off, i would just like to say Happy Birthday to Yang Amat Mulia, Tengku Muda pahang who got PUNK'ED yesterday in a surprise birthday party that was planned as meticulously as the watergate conspiracy by his beautiful wife, Cik Puan Julita.
You see, he thought he was going to launch the world cup promotion campaign for NTV7 (DAtuk Shazaly Ramli CEO of NTV7 being one of the major conspiritor - sent TM an ntv7 official invitation letter and all) and being passionate about football he said yes to it. A problem arised however for the main conspiritor (Cik PUan Julita) when he told her that she need not attend this event because it was a manly affair hee..hee..
Panicked about not being able to attend the birthday party that she help set up, she got a friend who owns a college to send an official letter inviting her to officiate her college carnival. She told her husband about the invitation and got his blessings to go. The wheels were set in motion and there was no turning back...
So now our unsuspecting prince, came down all the way from his home in Kuantan to the Ritz Carlton hotel where the NTV7 banners were set up , Cameras and all were set up, photographers with flashing lights and all. When the ballroom door was opened he saw the room was darkened and suddenly like a band of Uruk-hai in the darkness we all yelled, "SURPRIIIIISSSEE!".
The young prince looked confused... but when his wife came to embrace him amidst the crowd, i could see his eyes welling up...all this trouble for the man she loved, to give him the most memorable bithday ever. Amongst the alumni of people in attendance were his pahang football people, most of the pahang royal family, celebrities who have became his close friends over the years, close personal fiends from indonesia, Dubai, Phillipines were flown in by his wife (not personally-la) and the very handsome Prince of Jordan who came in to play polo with the royals last week (Ohh I say!).
the very eligible prince of jordan did say something really funny i thought, When knowing the passion TM had for malaysia's number 1 sport , football, he commented that in his country, MARRIAGE is the number one sport. heehee kelako.
One thing that i can personally say about TM is that he is the real deal. If he says he will do something, he will do it. He is a man driven by PASSION. A passion for his people, his state, for his family, for his state football team and for his friends. When he offers his hand in friendship to you, he expects nothing else but your companionship. And that kodok-kodok semua, is quality that is hard to find from a man in his position. He deserves all the good things that is happening to him in his life.
Happy birthday tengku muda. You just got PUNK'ed! & cherish that bootifoo wife of yours. she is a diamond among the stones.
Don't forget gang
POWER TO THE PEOPLE!
