Awww...did you surfed on Google today? Cookie Monstah got featured! I like it :)
Yesterday, to my surprise my students were in their best behaviour and that made me extremely happy while in class. Had a conversation with an Indonesian student during D1 class and we were talking about the entertainment industry in Indonesia and he (the student) was so surprised when I told him that apparently there are A LOT of Indon dramas/sinetron that's currently airing on TV right here in Malaysia. He was so clueless about it and he was also very surprised that there are quite a number of Indon movies that has been shown in the cinemas here too hahaha. Don't you agree that we actually enjoy watching K-Dramas, J-Dramas, Indon dramas, pinoy dramas and of course American shows rather that the dramas/shows that are locally produced?
Well, not to say our own local dramas are thaaaat bad but sometimes I can't really stand it when the scripts are bad, the actresses ALWAYS have heavy make-up in every scene even when they are in the bedroom and the story line tends to be really boring.
Anyway, my dad is like a HUGE fan of Indon dramas, I seriously have no idea why. I tried watching with him before but I just couldn't find any way to enjoy it which is why I always ended up watching the shows of my choice on midnight onwards...that is when my dad is already in bed.
So before you start scrutinising your eyes thinking whether am I too old to be listening to bands like AAR, let me tell you this.
1. AAR is a band that I've liked since they came out with their first album. That was when I was just 17 years old and I've continually liked their music until now though, a lot might say that their music are way too mainstream now...which kinda explains why there were a lot of tweens during their concert heheh. So you might hate 'em but I like them a hell lot :D
2. I do listen to a lot of mainstream music and that's just because I like it. I might not know a hell lot of indie stuffs but hey, at least I admit that most of the songs that I listen to these days are pretty much mainstream ones and not just wanting to be 'cool' and act like I listen to a lot of indie music. I can actually listen to different genre of music...it just has to depend on my mood.
3. I was actually contemplating whether I should write a post about this or not cos I know some of my students do read this blog tsk tsk. Maybe I cared too much on what they would think about me once they know that I'm like a superfan of AAR buttttt I shouldn't care THAT much right? I mean I'm a big fan of them it doesn't mean you need to be a fan too kan?
So my point is, please don't judge me la ok hehe.
Right, to sum it up...AAR was awesomeeeee! I enjoyed their performance and the best thing was they sang more songs this time compared to the first time I saw 'em on MTV World Stage. They even performed songs that I didn't really expect them to perform that night like The Last Song and Paper Heart cos I thought they'll only perform songs from When The World Comes Down album and Move Along albums. I did not stood in front this time because I didn't want to get suffocated among all the tweens hahah....actually all I wanted was just to have a good time watching AAR (even it was quite far) without being squished around. Plus I went to their autograph session in the morning and secured myself a pass for the meet and greet session after the concert so it was all good!
Here are the list of songs that they performed that night in no particular order: Move Along, Fallin' Apart, Swing Swing, Paper Heart, Dirty Little Secret, Damn Girl, Real World, Mona Lisa, It Ends Tonight, The Wind Blows, I Wanna and Gives You Hell.
Tyson was wearing a Red Indian headgear because it was Halloween :))))))

And Tyson Ritter! Man, he is super skinnyyyyy...seriously!
The DiGi people didn't allow the fans to snap pictures while we were up there getting their autographs which really sucks but I managed to snap some muahahaahaha.
LOL...Tyson's fan boy.
It was indeed a well spent Saturday :) My feet hurts like crazzzy once I reached home after the concert. Oh, the local band Disagree were goooood too! Anyway, I went to watch MJ's This Is It movie the day after and it was so so nice as well. If only he was still alive...sigh.
Weekend's here again....have a good one everybody :)
