_SHIFT the future...

I just wanna write a short post here with a main question :

"Can we shift sumthin without changing its current condition?"

Let's think of an example here shall we. Let's say if you like pizza sooo damn much, and you want it to be your main course everyday. For breakfast, lunch, tea-time, dinner, always want that pizza like you already fall deeply in love wif it. So now you're shifting your pizza, from twice a week to an everyday meal, without changing its current conditions, which are; it's pizza; it's your most favourite food. It's just that you don't want that pizza to dissapear and lost in time. You don't want others to take your favourite pizza. But it's ok if others still like the same pizza, as long as they don't like it as much as you do. You want that pizza to be there for you always...coz you believe that there's no one on earth can love that pizza as much as you do...but you still want it to be the same pizza, same taste, same ingredients....could it be possible?

It's always possible for me....

Butters & Friends : Butter Worth Pushful 10th Annyversary Showcase (130107) @ ZOUK KL

did it again this time!! If any of you still remember their 2nd album Butter Worth Pushful on's the 10th annyversary and everybody gathered together for the last time at Zouk KL to watch them live on stage performing a long set from the album.

The show started quite late, 4pm, Damn Dirty Apes was the opening band for the day with their space-reggae style. Like usual, i didn't get the chance to watch the opening band. Me n Bleak went to KLCC to get something to eat...1901 hotdogs!! hahaha...when we're back at Zouk, Republic Of Brickfields was on stage and the crowd still standing and moving slowly; almost unmotioned; well...i bet they do coz most of them came for Butterfingers!! But as expected, when OAG on stage, everybody was crazy like hell!! the packed crowds suddenly got wild, moshing, jumping, diving...while me n other crew members were busy setting things up for Butterfingers. Tuning their guitars, setting their gadgets, preparing the camera, find the best angle bla bla bla...fuuhh

It was about 6.50pm and Butterfingers got up on stage...and also as expected...the crowds went hysterically crazy!! They played a little stupid tune for soundcheck (2 songs called C# and D#...hahahahaha)...then they took a break at 7.15pm. 15 minutes after that, Butterfingers were seen on stage, all geared up, Loque make some noise with his guitar, and everybody else does actually...then the show begins!! Luckily i got a better angle than last week, and i change my position whenever they change their guitars...thanx to those bodyguards from Zouk for being a human barricade...u guys rawks!!!

I might say i was a little dissapointed with the show yesterday coz Butterfingers was supposed to be the main act...yet they were short of time so they have to cancel 4 songs!! (and that includes Mating should know how dissapointed i was)....but luckily they played Delirium, one of my most favourite song!! Oh yea and also Ruin By The Selling Out...damn nice man!!

Butters & Friends : The Warm-up Session

It was Saturday and everybody was rushing to Zouk KL for the first time; full line-up performance by Butterfingers since early 2005!! I was asked by UGLY to shoot the video with other 2-3 cameraman (and a woman also).

The show started at about 3.30pm with 18SGG as the opening band. Not much to say about this band coz i was at the entrance that time (tgh tolong Tajul jaga pintu). After 18SGG was Prana and...well...if you ever heard their new better judge 'em yourself la kan?? (hahahaha)...after that was Seven Collar T-Shirt and what else could i say about them..Duan's vocal is hard to beat...Ham's creative effects lead SCTS to another dimension...then came Love Me Butch...the crowd suddenly gone wild and i got to watch them from the VIP section...hahahaha...have to get ready for the main act...BUTTERFINGERS!!!

Just after LMB finished, Emmett got up on stage and the crowd suddenly gone "Waaaarrrghhh!! Emmett!!! Arrrghhh!!!"...hahahah gile la diorang nih...i searched for the best angle to shoot the video but sadly the front stage area was packed already!! then i decided to sit on the stage, in front of Emmett i was in the middle between raging crowds n him...n for God sake i had a back pain today coz the crowd keep pushing me for the whole Butterfingers set!!! Hopefully next week i'll get a better angle. Then after the show we all just lepak outside Zouk then move on to Pelita Nasi Kandar (nearby KLCC) to eat n do some post-mortem. Me, all the RoyalButterfingers crews, Emmett n his wife Terrina.

Here's the setlist for last night:
The Chemistry (Between Us)
Garden City of Lights
Girl Friday
Words vs Wisdom
M E (encore)
Floating in a Vacuum (encore)

Trivia :
  • Loque bought a new guitar...Squier Telecaster (he said cheap only..made in China...bleh caya ka?)
  • Kadak's most memorable phrase "Ape cerit?" (i didn't miss the 'a''s truly 'cerit')....hahahahahah
  • Seven Collar T-Shirt's new album will be out maybe this year (source from Duan himself)
  • Emmett's Epiphone guitar was broke down before the set started so he borrowed Ham's (SCTS) Telecaster
  • Still remember Loque playing his acoustic guitar at Rock The World 4?? That is Martin guitar!!! If any of you don't know what it is...i'll tell you...briefly...Martin acoustic guitar would cost around RM10k or my hook?
that's all...see u next Saturday, same time, same place, for the Butter Worth Pushful 10th Annyversary Showcase...the set will be longer n better!! trust me!!
