Now that's what i call music: Neil Sedaka, 'Laughter in the Rain'

Oh man.  This song, and his voice, is the sound of spring, whatever the season.  I'm so glad that i grew up to this sort of music.  Lady Gaga type of rubbish, in comparison, is nothing short of child abuse.



  1. Hey,

    What a romantic song! Love the music as well. On the other hand, Lady Gaga's songs are just purely nonsense. Makes me wonder whether she's a pending case in a mental hospital.

  2. "pending case in a mental hospital"..haha. Well, given her popularity, there would be millions worldwide whom would be 'pending' as well. So perhaps, to counter the overcrowding in mental institutions, they probably decided to give such taste the 'all clear'.

    Yes. There were great stuff being produced in the 70s, and with people from all over the world making it as well - unlike now where it is mainly american music which is being promoted and sold worldwide. With so much musical/cultural/perspectival self-absorption, it's no wonder that they are producing rubbish by the bulk. But with kids being malformed from young with overexposure to this 'music', we are set for further musical/cultural/perspectival degeneration.

    Good that the singaporean experience hasn't screwed you up so as to disable you from appreciating it Mark:)

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.

Manifesto Against Same-Sex Marriages and Homo-Promotion

My stand against homosexuality is based on the following.  It is a logical, rather than a personal, decision.

Under the slogan, 'the freedom to love', it in principle justifies incestuous, group, etc, marriages.  All it requires is 'consenting adults', without an inquiry into what it means to be an 'adult' in intelligent, moral, and introspective terms.

This in turn encourages a ‘go with your feel’ tendency, which in itself gives rise a myriad of tendencies that go unquestioned.  Right and wrong ceases to matter, and even if something is illegal, one can still view it as society just having its own bias against it, just as it once had a ‘bias’ against homosexuality.

‘Nothing is natural.  Everything is just a matter of preference.’  That is the basic thrust of this unfortunate situation.  In fact, having a preference is in itself seen as evidence of one’s intelligence.  No attention needs to be paid to intellectuals, thinkers, philosophers, sages, religious te…
