在虛擬世界找尋慰籍

不久前S.H.E.為代言產品來新加坡宣傳。 在小組訪問,聊起了S.H.E.的香港演唱會。据知,S.H.E.爲了要呈現一場富誠意的演出,在很短的時間内密集練歌、練舞,結果在籌備過程,因爲壓力太大而陷入“憂鬱”,幾度崩潰。(omy.sg有視頻) S.H.E.三人各自談起“壓力指數”。 Selina說她第一次哭的時候,是某天練舞回家,心裏一直想“只剩下幾個禮拜了,天啊,我做不到,做不到做不到….”,馬上就哭了。 她接著又說:“哭完以後,我就去‘種菜’了…”(上Facebook的《開心農場》收割並耕種) 全場笑成一團。 到虛擬世界疏壓,已經是城市人的一個習慣。從前,似乎只有“性飢渴”的人,才上色情網釋放那方面的“壓力”,現在網絡通訊發達,什麽都有,在現實生活中無法實現或達到的,到“虛擬”世界去完成“夢想”也不錯!可以開自己的餐廳、在農場種自己喜歡的菜、養很多很多魚、做一個最英勇的武士、煮一桌美味佳肴、開遊樂場… 我最近也開始依賴“虛擬世界”,滿足我的小小“欲望”。 最近經濟上出了點小狀況,一連串的事情一單接一單發生,我快受不了了。很想大哭一場。 壓力真的很大。 那天睡前,上Facebookçš„Farmville,重新“設計”了我的農場。增設了一個嘉年華遊樂場、買了一個小池塘給烏龜和鴨子、添了好幾棵楓樹… 農場變漂亮了。 心情也變漂亮了。 最開心的是買了一個花園涼棚,因爲Farmville時不時會附送美麗的花朵… 這正是我夢寐以求的小天地。在城市裏透不過氣的時候,可以躲進這個花園裏放慢腳步,多好。 那天跟安娜聊起此事,我們都答應要互相提醒,不可以陷得太深。畢竟,虛擬世界的花草樹木只可供欣賞,瓜菜水果是不可能填飽肚子的。


Casual Poet,我會想念你的

今天約了好久沒聯絡的朋友喝下午茶。 在“約會”的地點(Holland Village)遇到Casual Poet的可愛小老闆娘(詩妮) ,她說出門之前剛好看了我的部落格。我不好意思地說:“好久沒有更新了…’brain-dead’…呵呵。” 剛剛點擊Casual Poet的部落格…赫然發現Casual Poet即將停止營業!啊~~~如果我早一點知道這件事,今天下午就會多關心一下詩妮… 唉~~ 不久前,到Casual Poet出席本地Indie歌手黃碧燕的音樂分享會,非常喜歡那一夜的氣氛。之後,碧燕要我也在Casual Poet辦一場小型音樂會。 我有點心動。 唉。 第一次去Casual Poet,是因爲《我報》同事安排盧廣仲在那兒“吃早餐”,我們omy.sg順便側拍。那天,我弄了一個恐怖造型,結果沒有嚇着盧廣仲,反而是讓工作人員傻眼。 希望詩妮早日找到更好的地點,讓創意人和文藝人有個很好的空間相聚、交流。 祝福滿滿,加油~


Radiohead “High & Dry”,Making Me High Again

月初,Universal唱片公司傳來電郵:“Just want to share with you that we have a new compilation coming out next week.  It’s a JV between us and Warner Music called A Song For You.  This is set for release next Monday and we are all really excited about it.” 看了看歌單…wow,it’s making me excited too! 哈哈。因爲,都是唱作型歌手的歌,而且半數以上都是我喜歡的!

如果他拿著吉他 唱情歌給你聼…

如果有個男孩,拿著吉他唱情歌給你聼,你會動心嗎? 會? 真的嗎? 因爲很浪漫? é‚£…如果他是這個樣子…你還會覺得浪漫嗎? 你在笑!! 這樣的“搞笑臉”…就不能唱情歌嗎? 這德性唱情歌給你,就不浪漫嗎? 給他一個機會,看看他在電影“Scandal Makers”裏頭唱“Because I love you”的片段吧: 電影原聲帶也不錯聼…今晚的SundayEleven會播另外兩首歌~ 哦,話説回來,如果真的有一個這樣的“搞笑臉”男生,拿著吉他深情地對我唱歌…嗯,我會笑。 不過,如果我對他有好感,我還是會被感動的。 部分劇照: | |


Encore 真好~

七月末,五月天來新加坡宣傳DNA演唱會,《我報》瑱玲想到了一個很好的“DNA”主題(解開五月天的D.N.A.),於是我帶著錄影師,把這個專訪錄下。 訪問第一個問題談到了10年前在臺北市立體育場的万人演唱會,怪獸講著講著,突然憶起那晚唱過《志明與春嬌》Bossa Nova版,好像就這樣決定在這次的新加坡DNA演唱會“再”唱。 我雖然臉無表情,内心卻狂喊著:“嘜啊~~~~~~” 一踏出訪問房間,我很難過地問瑱玲:“你沒事干嘛叫他們唱Bossa Nova版《志明與春嬌》?” 瑱玲很開心地回答:“很好聽啊。” “不是不好聼,只是,這是五月天的‘國歌’,演唱會那麽多粉絲,當然是要跟著唱原版才highå•Š….” 828那場,五月天真的唱Bossa Nova版… 唉。 (第二天)829çš„Encore,當《志明與春嬌》過門第一個小節的旋律響起,我興奮得從座位彈起來叫。 聽説嚇着前座觀衆。對不起。哈哈。 我不是故意的。 後來後來,《溫柔》也唱了原版(828的《溫柔》,間中穿插了張雨生的《天天想你》) 。 <—å•ŠBob拍的..不賴吧? 828å’Œ829çš„Encore曲目一樣精彩,嗯,回憶很多、興奮很多、感動很多、汗水很多、誠意很多、妒嫉很多、笑聲很多、‘嗶’聲很多…. 《戀愛ING》、《放肆》、《夜訪吸血鬼》、《突然好想你》、《溫柔》、《咿呀呀》(石頭solo)、《擁抱》、《志明與春嬌》、《I Love You無望》、《憨人》、《明白》、《愛情的模樣》….(上omy看部分的encore吧) 《D.N.A.》演唱會,會有Encore場嗎? 親愛的冰友… 我會繼續拿熒光棒的,放心,約我吧。


照片會説話(之 伍佰一點都不可怕)

五月中,接獲要訪問伍佰的消息…差點暈倒。 不知爲什麽,要訪問伍佰老師,壓力很大。記得很多年前在電臺,唱片公司安排伍佰上君偉的現場節目,之後再跟我做一個預錄訪問。當時,君偉和我都是第一次接觸伍佰老師,兩人忐忑了一整天。 後來,兩個節目都非常順利進行,老師也開心地離開電臺….我很“酷”地等伍佰老師走出錄音室,然後抱著君偉大喊:“yeah~~~ 完成了!!!” 那天之後,覺得伍佰老師一點都不可怕,好聊的很。 可是,那麽多年了…老師應該忘記我了吧?要訪問他….唉…又冒起了無名恐懼。 這一次,《我報》 Mervin提議跟老師聊關於他推出的兩本攝影集《伍佰 風景》和《伍佰 故事》。訪問的兩天前,我終于有時間跑去買書來K。 我,愛上了《伍佰 風景》。 有一部分,記錄了新加坡。。。 | | 看完了《伍佰 風景》,真想提起背包,放下一切,去旅行。 那天的訪問,大家聊得很開心(可以上omy.sg看視頻)。之後,我和Bob-san還當起了書迷,請老師簽名。 其實,伍佰老師一點都不可怕。


寧願別人負我?

“寧願別人負我,也不要負人…” 這是品冠奶奶生前灌輸下一代做人的道理。 訪問中,當品冠提起奶奶說過的這番話,我有點小小感觸… 現在的人,大多數都先想到自己的幸福和利益,很少願意“吃虧”。很多人,在爭權奪利的過程,或爲了保住自己的身份地位…不斷不斷地“負”人。 如果每一個人都可以擁有“寧願別人負我,也不要負人”的心態,世界就會和平一點。


10年了,默契不減

昨天,趕著剪輯五月天的記者會片段…在時間的壓力下…我還可以一邊剪、一邊笑… 10年了,他們還是可以互相調侃(不發標)、互相吐嘈(不臉黑)…連記者問關於最近賍車的事件,他們還借題發揮,不斷“酸”冠佑…


One Day in Your Life…You’ll remember Michael Jackson somehow

一聽聞Michael Jackson逝世消息,冒出第一句話是:“怎麽可能!??”!他不是才剛宣佈復出演唱的消息嗎?我還半開玩笑地跟剪輯師說,Michael Jackson一定是受不了壓力,然後決定用“死”來應對問題,之後他可以再去整形變成另一個樣子,做個平凡的人,過開心的日子。 我一直都覺得他身上背著的擔子很重。我們這群平凡族,都受不了每天芝麻綠豆事情所帶來的小壓力…更何況是Michael Jackson… 前天中午,整理了他的一些相關消息,我漸漸接受他離去的事實。其中在“Michael Jackson 永遠的King of Pop”看到一段由他的經理人發出的聲明,我頗有感觸: “作为第一次猥亵儿童案期间为Michael Jackson服务的经理人,我必须承认,对于今天这样的悲剧我并不感到意外。 多年来,Michael的生活十分艰难,他一直在自我毁灭。他的才华无可非议;他给世界规范、准则带来的不安也同样无可非议。 而一个人完全无法承受这样的长期高压。” 我從小聼Michael Jackson的歌,他是我的第一個黑人歌手偶像,在我的成長歲月留下了很多美好片斷,如:偷偷地收集他的海報、逼弟弟學跳他的舞(因爲我弟弟也叫Jackson!)… Michael Jackson也是第一個行善感動我的人。他用歌曲唱出貧困人們、動物、大自然、地球上一切一切所需要的關愛。 然後,全球人都聽到了。 從他1985年與Lionel Richie合寫的“We are the World”,到1992年創作/製作的單曲“Heal the World”到後來後來的“Earth Song”…. 全球人都聽到了。 可是,在猥褻兒童案發生以後,一切都變得不一樣了。挺他的人,堅信他是被陷害的;反他的人,堅決他就如同他的面貌一樣“醜陋”。 昨天《早報》同事洪銘鏵在專欄裏提到:Michael Jackson是全世界慈善貢獻最大的藝人,幾十年孜孜不倦的慈善事業高達3億美元;憑著他的偉大人道貢獻,他得過兩次諾貝爾和平獎提名。 Michael Jackson的影響力不只限於音樂。 據説,美國著名R&B歌手Usher這麽認爲:Michael Jackson是第一個讓全球不同膚色的人都接受並喜愛的黑人,要不是Michael Jackson,今天就不會有Oprah Winfrey,而BARACK OBAMA也不會成爲美國總統。 或許,你只記得他的八卦和醜聞,但是有一天,你會想起他對地球的偉大付出。 One day in your life You’ll remember a place Someone touching your face You’ll come back […]


現實,太殘酷

今早到公司,看到的第一條娛樂新聞:朱智勛吸毒  被判緩刑一年。 此刻,恰巧《我報》娛記IM問我一些事情,我就開玩笑地把omy上載的“朱智勛”新聞copy給她,然後寫了一個這樣的標題:坐牢還那麽帥。 她“slap”了我一下,然後hahaha地回:“醒醒吧” 被她這麽一“Slap”,我突然想到了一件無關聯的事,有點小感觸,便回她:“現實太殘酷,你就讓我冬眠吧。”(編織“美夢”、看帥哥,挺快樂的) 真的,現實好殘酷,我寧願繼續睡覺做夢。可是,我總是太清醒,所以才會覺得現實殘酷。 @@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@ 晚上,遇見了一個不久前發片的本地獨立歌手,小聊了一會兒。 談話中,她好幾次提到:“Maybe I’m too naive…xxxxxx” 她說,她“天真”以爲很容易落實的計劃,似乎變得遙不可及。 我有鼓勵她,叫她堅持,不要放棄。 可是,我知道,她將會經歷很多殘酷現實的考驗。 我十五年前進入這個音樂圈,從一開始前輩的指點,到後來自己跌倒體悟;從一個“無知”創作人的角度,到後來變成從唱片公司的角度,到後來的後來從媒體的角度看本地的音樂,坦白說,我是有一些無奈的。 現實…是殘酷的…身邊有多少織夢少年的希望被歲月粉碎? 雖然如此,我還是沒有放棄對本地音樂的支持,獻上我能力範圍内的小小“力量”。 沒錯,現實很殘酷…但我還沒有完全低頭。
