RIP Percy Sledge

by mott on April 21, 2015

Of late, I’ve been listening to a whole heap of soul, funk .. totally 70s stuff. I don’t know why… I really like the beats, the rhythms.. the soul inside.

Michael Viner’s comes tops for me. This started the whole ball rolling. Next is the Bamboos and Booker T. Averheart.

Whenever people listen to the funk n soul of the 70s, immediately the visions of big afro hair, chunky jewelry, and those amazing clothes! I mean, back then, women wore those with so much style! And it was all covered up, yet so very sexy.

When I heard Percy Sledge passed… just sad, just so sad. Rest in peace, sir.

The disappearance of McDreamy

by mott on April 21, 2015

Now I get it.

McDreamy added in a dash of divanism into the mix. If he wanted out, why not do it in a spectacular way.. I mean, GA needs .. NEEDS a dramatic cliffhanger. Nowadays, it’s just boring half sisters, and not-so-sizzlin-love-romance in betweeners.

Yawn.. I’m been waiting for Penny Dreadful.. why is it taking forever to come out?

4 words – White man, Tiger mom This is probably the movie of the year for me. Never was I so moved in a movie before. The drive in Miles Teller’s character, was so intense, that I had to ask myself… where is my drive? I’ve been finding, of late, that I’m often reminiscing. Of [...]

The neverending chapter

April 11, 2015

Same time last year, I was having it good. Well.. in the home front. It was good, because we had made sure that everything around the house, was fixed up, especially the plumbing. This was to make sure that we didn’t have to suffer another needless storm water damage. The inconvenience was just too much [...]

Cringe-worthy words

March 27, 2015

I recently came across two sentences : 1. On a woman’s shirt, was written a cute sentence : “I’m not 60 Years Old… I am Sweet 16 with 44 years experience” 2. He would make such a good husband. Now, replace that with the opposite gender, and for the first sentence you would have basically [...]

50% left

March 17, 2015

Well well well.. I’ve left it to this now. Apparently, I only have 50% of space in gmail. I’ve left so many unopened emails, 5k++, not to mention the amount of attachments are in there. My question is… how long more can I have my gmail account before it actually runs out of space. What [...]

The awkward moment

January 18, 2015

*took a deep breath in .. and held it there* There it was. The moment had come. The awkward moment. Y’know the moment, where you’re there, with your son, watching something on TV (well… on iTunes), and a sex scene comes up. There was absolutely nothing I could do, except to quickly pause it…but by [...]

The dream kitchen

January 14, 2015

I’m living vicariously! Through a friend, who is building her house, and has free rein on how her kitchen should look. It was such an honour that she had asked how it should look like. I came across this site, and was really excited that I could forward to her all these ideas. Some of [...]
