"My son got his p**** stuck in between his zippers-lah! That's what he gets for being too hasty to go out to play with his friends! After that he had to be circumcised straight away! Now through the holidays I have to organise a prayer/recital session for him!"

Now Sam Allardyce has been appointed to replace Ince, one must not forget how this man was severely criticised for employing the so-called unproductive 'long-ball' tactics while he was in charge of Bolton. Well, criticisms aside, Bolton did compete in Europe for the past few years....so if long-ball tactic is what it takes to avoid being in the Championship next season, then long-ball it is!!!

Now, the main highlight that i would like to point out is that, on this album, every Beatle member (that's John, Paul, George & Ringo for those in the dark) began experimenting with their own materials that deviate from the fundamental style of the Beatles. This trend eventually backfired and they only lasted for another 2 albums before finally disbanding. Again, stories of their breakup has been told many many times.....just google it and you'd get literally hundreds if not thousands of articles on it. Nevertheless, they had succesfully diversified their style of music in the album that one might have the impression that it (the White Album) could be a compilation of 32 different songs from different artists from different era! That's how the White Album from The Beatles sound like folks! A whole bunch of different genre of songs all jumbled up in two excellent discs. I can't recall really on how many artists cited the White Album as their main influences to their musical styles. Not to mention the plethora of copy-cat albums from different artists that emulates the format of the White Album. And listening to it, one might start to understand why. A particular song in the album was even touted as the first 'world music' ever recorded by the western world. Which one you ask? Listen to the album and you will find out. Pick the album up (if you haven't)....and prepare yourself for one helluva musical journey.
Happy 40th Birthday, White Album!

"An employee should only stick to what he knows best! An employee should not
waste their time looking/trying around new job functions to suit their whims
and fancies, because you will only waste an organization's resources!"
This is of course to me....a load of horse s***!!! I immediately told him that as an employee, I will strive my utmost best to ensure that my contributions to the organizational needs are utilised efficiently and without prejudice. BUT once I find that I can't function properly or should I ever feel that I need to move on for the sake of career progression, then so be it. But nobody's gonna make me stay and dwell in a job which no longer appeal to me. Heck, nobody ever said that I need to be in the SAME organization anymore to enjoy a different role altogether. Well, kudos to him, I am now a better person; having seen the unlimited opportunities that lies outside that particular organization......as a result of that historic argument! Always take the positive side of things. Heheh....

Okay, one of 'THE' influence on Kurt Cobain and most of the aspiring grungers of the 90s is a singer/guitarist aptly named J Mascis from the band Dinosaur Jr.....also one of the bands whose music CDs are most spunned in my car CD player. I absolutely love Mascis' spidery guitar solos...makes me dizzy sometimes...hahahah! But its pure power defines Dinosaur Jr's music....and not to mention their excellent drumming style; which frequently feature Mascis on the skins every now and then! Wow, before Dave Grohl did it for the Foo Fighters (refer at the end of this article), J Mascis had done it before for Dinosaur Jr! Too many good songs from this band to recommend...but if I'm forced to name a few, I'd say Feel The Pain, Out There, In A Jar and I Don't Think So. Absolute bliss....sheer indie-rock!
Hmmm...yet another band which Nirvana named as their main influence; Sonic Youth. I initially wasn't really into these guys, but I was checking out current space-rock bands like Mogwai and Explosions in The Sky, and made me realise that there is an earlier band who did it all even back then in the 80s! Sometimes their song run into 7-8 minutes....a bit tad too long to my liking, but those good ones are really good to say the least. I'm not too keen with their experimental albums though.....
The Stone Temple Pilots...or STP for short, produced some very very good memorable songs.....either through the melodic singing by versatile frontman Scott Weiland or through some hard-to-forget guitar riffs. Darn, I'm already humming to songs like Plush, Interstate Love Song, Art School Girlfriend, Lady Picture Show.....the list goes on! Some critics had openly said that STP does not fit the grunge mould, simply because they are more 'poppy' than the rest of the grunge bands mentioned earlier. But what the heck, they rock anyway......and their emergence amidst the grunge frenzy period admits them into the grunge hall of fame!
Last but definitely not least, the Foo Fighters. Most of us are aware that these guys (mostly Dave Grohl)were wrongly accused of riding on the grunge popularity started by Nirvana. Who can blame them when Grohl started the band almost immediately after Cobain's demise. Grohl's expertise as a drummer were heavilty utilised during the inception of their debut album....marking him as one of the most versatile rock musician out there! Musically, these guys effectively combine melodic style of singing, very Beatle-esque; and coupled it with very tightly played rock music. To all you newbies to the band, get ALL of their albums! That's all I can say....
Okay, the Foos weren't my last rant on grunge music. It's only fair to admit Butterfingers, a well-known Malaysian band into the list. Though I hardly doubt it when people say that this band is still into grunge-infused music at present. Earlier albums saw them capitalising the grunge phenomena with great success. So great that some hardcore fans refused to budge and still demanded the band to maintain their grungy influences for their future release. As progressive as they are, they marched on, bringing in new songs and styles as their albums continue to grow. Their latest offering, Kembali sees them dwelling into the realm of infusing traditional Malay folk tunes with modern rock sound.....and the results are brilliant! This guy here knows what he's talking about.

Well, one thing for certain, I ain't gonna attempt to change any of these perceptions. I'm gonna enjoy what I find gives me the most relief from the stress/hustle 'n bustle of everyday working life...God knows I need it!
