Tale of 2 bands (and a third)

Quick post after watching 2 bands at the esplanade.

Quasimodo's playing was not tight, and were going off-tune at times. A limping lead singer only distracted even more. Final nail was the usage of cover songs.

You and Whose Army (which I previously like when they performed at BayBeats) was a totally different story. The playing was tight, the sound was and their songs put me in a trance. Pure bliss.

Hopefully Tiramisu will have a good performance. Waiting for 11pm to arrive...main act to follow.

p.s. I can't seem to see my photos on my SD card when it is inserted into my Eee PC. So this is temporarily a no picture post...

E71 - missing date on home screen

Only noticed this a few days ago

see screenshot below

normally, when i'm out, i'll set my phone on silent mode (i.e. vibrate only). but i recently noticed that the date disappeared

only this morning, i realised that it was the silent mode that "blocked" the date. wonder what the solution is...

Distractions: Get Stuff Done by Becoming a Weekend Luddite

Have been trying to avoid surfing Lifehacker (as its interesting articles tend to take up quite a bit of time), but anyway, surfed by this afternoon and found this article about cutting down usage of the computer. Good idea, but I wonder if I can stick to it...

The Girl Who Leapt Through Time

What a great anime movie! Just watched it on okto. Sure, some parts are mushy, but the plot is damn well written. Wikipedia's synopsis may not do it real justice, but I'm no wunder-writer too...
