Gig #105

Been a while since I’ve headlined a show, so I’m pretty psyched to announce I’ll be one of the main acts for tomorrow’s Feedback Open Mic at Jaya One. I’m also going to be away from Malaysia for almost a month, so this will be my last one for some time (doubt I’ll be playing any open mics in the US/UK haha). I haven’t prepared a set list yet, but I believe it should be a mix of some old tunes and newer ones. Hope to see you guys there!

Linux One Week Report

So far, Linux has been great to me. No crashes, all the programs I need run well. Whenever I’m stuck I can pretty much Google all the answers. I still haven’t memorized all the sudo commands, and I can’t do jack shit like uninstall from the terminal via commands but hey – I can do everything else I need to do.

I tried a few Desktop Environments, and while Unity is probably the best looking one, it’s a bit heavy for my shitbox. So recently I switched to Lubuntu, which is lighter/faster and said to be less power-hungry than the alternatives. It’s super customizable so I’ve been having fun tweaking it to my heart’s content. For reference, this is what my desktop environment currently looks like.

GIG #82: A not so triumphant return/dust off that guitar

It’s been awhile. I’ll admit it. I actually wanted to get back into performing much earlier this year, but due to me being lazy and/or tied up with work/life/Dota – it’s taken quite some time. Anyway, enough excuses. So check it – I’ll be playing my first show in a long time tomorrow. And yes, I’ll be unveiling new songs. Hopefully they are worth the wait. So, do make your way over to Barlai tomorrow. I’ll try to make it worth your while.
I promise.
If not, there are tons more other acts you can listen to.
Spread the word! Bring your friends! I hope you see you guys tomorrow.
