Japanese Music

You gotta love the Japanese production. I love the whole musical aspect of everything. Open up your ears and check these tracks out! 

I tried looking for Mika Nakashima but there were only cover version of her songs. I love the music & lyrics on that one. Means a lot to me. If i were you, just go google her name. Hehe! Ah well, time to work! 

YouTube-ing is addictive!

Back with two new ones! Gotta love Van Hunt! Here's a live show of his and in the middle of the song, some dude sang along and went out of tune. Check out his reaction!

Now! these two videos are my all time favorite. Hunny Madu introduced this guy to me. Raul Midon, a blind singer-songwriter. But his flaw aside, he is brilliant! Bloody brilliant!

There's more! Remember the guy that sang "Don't worry, Be Happy"? well this is the latter. He's actually a proper musician! He knows his shit! Check him out!

And, just to make you laugh for a bit. Here's a classic!

YouTube-ing helps

Hey there! I was bored so i went on to youtube and just started searching for videos. So i found these! The first one is Sammy Davis Jr. making impressions of the famous singers back then. He nailed Dean Martin perfectly. Check it out!

And do you remember the Afro Ninja? he's the dude who back flipped but landed on his face. Well, here are his friends! Enjoy!

So, after doing all that, i was still bored and being a vain pot as i am, i typed my name out "Bo Amir Iqram" and there were alot videos. So i watched them! Hehe! Here's a nice one. Thanks Zack Yusof for the interview!

Hope you enjoyed the videos. Please do continue as i seek for more videos! Post something later!

what is ...

curse the enemy you're sleeping with
that endless guilt you brought into this mess
leap into your fate against yourself
never regret your steps

i've wounded the biggest heart
to be back at where i started from

this is the new beginning of the past
this is everything you wanted
but days ahead
it's still not right.

Pre Raya Give Away!

Hey Gang!

Yesterday was fun. Did the Raya Shoot for 8tv Quickie and seriously felt prosperous and gave away 100 copies of my album. Just for the fun of it. I really thought they were the last batch but turns out, there's one more box that's left at home. I think there are 20 plus copies left. Hehe! silly me.

The shoot was fun and the quickie team was funny as always, Zher, Prem and Henry were chirpy. I really don't know how they pulled it off. I know Zher was going for a holiday. That's why she was like that. Prem, i think he was greatful after the operation that he had to go through and Henry was Henry. Funny thing but cool about Henry's fashion sense, he wore a Blue baju melayu with his jeans but he folded it up as if he was going for a T.A.G night @ barsonic. Haha! when i say that, i heard simply the sounds of The Smiths in the background singing "Panic on the streets of London,"

Eventhough it was set out at a carnival, not many people came for the event. Infact, later that night, I was at the Illuminight show where Maliq N The Essentials, Atillia and other acts were playing to only a handful of people. The space looked ridiculously huge and there was reverb everywhere. Also at the MTV world stage, a friend said it was not that great. To his eyes there were just a few hundred that attended. Where are the proud, music loving malaysians? what happened to them? sigh, guess there are things better left unanswered.

Sunday today! Had some nice breakfast + lunch = brunch. Chicken rice never tasted so good. hahaha! When one is hungry, anything is good. Just finished watching the Hong Kong show called I Corrupt All Cops ( ICAC ). Talks of the corruption that happened in Hong Kong from the 60's - 70's. It's actually a good example of what is happening behind the curtains, if you catch my drift. I felt a little concerned after watching the show. It made me think twice about the country too. But, what can one person do? I'm no superman that can fly or throw a crook through a wall or have x-ray visions ( i think i will take advantage of that ) hahaha! Oh shut up! you will too! hahaha! Anyways, it just started raining and my "lazy boy nap time" comes as a package. Thanks for reading and following and digesting useless knowledge from me. Tell you what. If you are bored, type in "Zeitgeist" on YouTube. That's something for you. I will update this blog as frequent as possible. Thanks and Goodnight!
