Just found a couple of playings on YouTube. It’s awesome stuff. Very satisfying to my eardrums. This is just one example of it:

The use of classical music techniques in the current music of this time simply intrigues me. Just listen.

But I’m sure the employees have all these attractions to keep them comfortable because they usually have to stay at the office for more than a day.



Groundbreaking Advertisement

Shell is really creative to use people to advertise. Though this form of advertisement may be slow, I’m sure  they expected people to take picture and post it on the internet (which is what it is happening now…) and then awareness could be gained. Also, the people involved in this “parade” will talk about their experience with the people around them and on their blogs and greater awareness of their promotion could be done. This is a really cheap form of advertisement and is apt during this time of  the poor economy. I’m sure other companies will soon follow and this form of advertisement will not be so unique for Shell afterall. Nevertheless for now, I think this is super creative and something new for Singaporeans to have on their streets.

I love Jamie Cullum’s performances. So frank, so honest, and does not hold back in his interpretations. The little details he does in his movement sets people to desire to see more. Together with his amazing talents, the show put together will get you spellbinding.

Trepanation

I came across this technique found in Medicine while watching Grey’s Anatomy. Gosh. It is so gory and I am shocked that this was first carried out as early as 6500 BC. Trepanation is surgery done by drilling through the human skull. I cannot imagine it being done in the past when steriliser and anaesthesia are not yet invented. Imagine the tonnes of bacteria entering through the skull. Would that not cause some infection to the brain at all? Plus the pain that one has to bear when he or she is conscious. Must be immense. Medicine sure does wonders and I am so appreciative of today’s advancement in medicine. But who does not want more when there are still diseases that have yet to find a cure.
