After a year’s worth of delays, Neurotic’s debut album Weird will finally see the light of day via iTunes on September 30, with an album launch gig at The Foundry on October 1.

If you’ve been to any of their gigs over the past year, you already know their songs are good. Especially the one you hear in this teaser video, which is my favourite. They call it #indoartpop but I just call it good music, and it deserves support.

Sleep-deprived me meets less-than-perceptive Hoka Hoka Bento employee. Hilarity ensues.

"Would you like something to go with your chicken katsu and rice?"

"I’ll have a chocolate pudding and lemon tea."

I head to the cashier. They charge me Rp 52,000. There is no chocolate pudding on my tray. There is no chocolate pudding on my receipt.

The employee has a sudden realisation. There is no chocolate pudding on my tray.

"Do you still want the chocolate pudding?"

I have a sudden realisation. It is 5:41 AM. I have not slept since yesterday. There is no chocolate pudding on my tray or my receipt. They charged me Rp 52,000.

"NO, I DO NOT WANT THE CHOCOLATE PUDDING."

The end. I need sleep. (at Hoka Hoka Bento Terminal 2D Bandara Soekarno-Hatta)

Watching Spider-Man 3

Though there are many cheesy moments and the CGI looks incredibly shoddy as the years go by, I still prefer the original Spider-Man movies over the new ones. Even this much-maligned third instalment.

The new Peter Parker feels more like a cool outcast rather than the bullied nerd of the previous movies, the latter of which rings more true to the wish-fulfilment appeal of the original comic books. Spider-Man as initially conceived was a way for Peter Parker to use his great power responsibly while also escaping his life as a loser - though even as Spider-Man he still lost a lot. While I enjoy the Andrew Garfield movies, I miss the loser aspect of Tobey Maguire. – View on Path.
