now that's what i call music: Binky Blue, the EWI and 'Wonderful World'

'Wonderful World', by Louis Armstrong, played here by 'Binky Blue' on the Akai USB EWI.

Someone, in criticism of the EWI, commented beneath this youtube vid, "Nothing can replace the sound of a real clarinet".

Well, we can also say that a real clarinet can't easily sound like the EWI either.  And both sound good, in its own way.

What matters is the beauty of the sound, and the soul and passion with which it is played.  As for 'Binky Blue', the moment i saw his face, or expression, on the video, i knew it was going to be good.  A very apt complement to the tune and sound.

Is singapore a tyranny, or are people to dumbed down to feel it?

The following is a consideration of the perspective posted at the site, 'article14'. The site, in discussing the so-called 'Black Sunday movement' whose members wear black and congregate at Starbucks - perhaps they have an unstated desire to boost Starbucks sales of overpriced beverages, or perhaps Starbucks is paying for their black garments...silly people - to express their support for the freedom of expression - brought up certain points that seem to be commonly held by the 'singaporeans' of today.

Well, V (singaporean chinese girl working in the UK....and now back for the holidays) kept bugging the crap out of me to write about this here goes.

I arrived in singapore on the 15th of Jan in the evening via SQ with V.  I got to the baggage retrieval belt first and quite immediately got the attention of the customs police standing at the checkpoint near the entrance to the arrival hall.  Well, never mind.
