Side note: I’ve always loved how the intro starts with such a brash guitar riff.
Take these bricks and build it up to the greatest heights.
We will knock them down
For the week, 29 February – 6 March
I’ve been trying to get out of the project’s rut by enforcing some added discipline, but it may not be enough because I’m being confronted with the lack of inspiration. However, one thing that did surface from this last week has been location plays a part in the creative process. Perhaps I’ve been looking in the wrong places (ie. Not moving out of my comfort zone), and so this week I made a concerted effort to go to a place that I’d been noticing around my neighbourhood, and taking photos in this new place was both refreshing and invigorating.

For the week, 22 – 28 February
This week, I went to the Esplanade to watch Nick play a set with Jaime Wong. It was a rather intimate set with very minimal instrumentation, and it was nice to see a decent turnout for the gig. Nick’s a close friend of mine, and I wish him every success in his craft and endeavours.
I also went to check out the Open Farm Community Social Market over the weekend. It was nice but… it just felt a bit off centre also. I mean, I have tremendous respect for the people who were there to sell the produce, but maybe it still hasn’t sunk in that Singapore is a place where we’re known for domestic produce or products. To that end, it is encouraging that something is happening in Singapore, and I hope to see more homegrown creativity and entrepreneurship being celebrated.
Notes from this series
– Not a very inspired week.
– My favourite photo would be the top-down shot from over the balcony that frames some cafe tables and chairs as well. Composition-wise, I’m happy with the variety of shapes in the photograph.

I’m trying to get back into a routine to find some sort of bearing for my life again. Sitting at home and playing computer games for the majority of daylight isn’t a very healthy psychological disposition. Unfortunately I haven’t really found that spark yet. Don’t infer too much meaning from this post as I am posting it about four days late, and I wish I could give a better recount of the photos I took.

Little stars that burn the holes in my soul
Side note: I think the alt music community can be divided between those who prefer The Smashing Pumpkins or those who prefer Zwan.
