china girl to major tom, i'm under pressure* 

When it rains, it pours.

And that has nothing to do with Mariah Carey singing. Hah, it was pouring meows and woofs last Jan 20. A collegue, angered by countless madness deadline pressure, shouted "Oi Mariah, stop calling the rain la! Banjir kang!".

Incubus will be performing at Bukit Kiara Stadium on March 16. So affordable, some more. Only RM98. If they sing 'Are You In?' and 'Warning', I will go home with my cheshire cat grin. And sleep with my cheshire cat grin. And then God will lock my jaw and I will end up wearing that grin for the rest of my life. And then I will audition for the next Batman movie and get the part of the Female Joker. And I will act alongside Jack Nicholson as his daughter seeking revenge for his death. And then Batman will fall in love with me and repent for killing daddy Joker. And I will forgive him. And we will get married. And we will ride towards the sunset with our BatMobile.

Fingers snapping.

Sheesh. Back to my black and white world...

Then, yesterday night, I found out that David Bowie will be in Singapore for a concert this coming Thursday, 4 March. Wah liau eh, I want to go! Cheapest ticket is at S$75, best ticket being S$255. A couple of colleagues are gonna drive down to the causeway on Thursday noon, go for the concert and drive back the same night, reach KL at 4.00am, nap for 4 hours and go to work by 9.00am.

Fun, fun, fun...The last time I did such nonsence was for ColdPlay / Travis concert back in July 2001. That was so worth it!

Dilemmas:
i) Have to attend both concerts. That's not an option, Houston.
ii) Which ticket to buy to see Bowie? S$75 ticket will let me see all 5-inches of Bowie, hear, dance and sing with him. S$255 ticket will let me see Bowie by 5 feet away, hear, dance and sing with him. And the best part is I'll be able to see his beautiful, gorgeous eyes.

"What eyes?", I can almost hear Mei's mocking now. Hm, to kill a mocking bird.

Bowie has different coloured- and sized eyes. The left is brown, permanently dilated and the right is blue, normal. When Bowie was a teenager, he was punched in the left eye, and it permanently dilated the pupil and turned it brown. Or was it hazel? There you go...some Bowie trivia. And people thought the nickname 'Chameleon' was referring to his fashion disability. Geesh.

With the S$255 ticket, chances of David Bowie extending his hand to me and say "Let's Dance, my China Girl" is so very high. (Hey, I am a sucker for miracles. So shoot me!). And after that, David Bowie will leave Iman for me. (Err, maybe not...I shall not test the stretchability of my suckerism.)

Both dreams are nice. Either will still leave that cheshire cat grin on my face.

Never mind, all is not lost. I still get to marry Batman.

Mua ha ha ha hah.


NOTE - AJ sent me this to correct the trivia on Bowie's eyes:


Why has David Bowie got odd looking eyes?

He has a condition called aniscoria, which is the medical term for unequal pupils. In 1962, aged 14, he got punched in the eye by his school friend George Underwood, during an argument over a girl named Carol Goldsmith. George's knuckle caught David's eye and dislodged something. David was admitted to Farnborough Hospital, where it was found that the sphincter muscles in his left eye were damaged and he underwent two eye operations. He has an enlarged pupil that remains permanently open, giving the effect of different coloured eyes.

David and George are to this day still life-long friends. George played in early Bowie groups and eventually became a commercial artist. He was involved in the design of the album sleeves for Hunky Dory (1971), The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and The Spiders From Mars (1972) albums/posters/flyers, graphics for The 1980 Floor Show and The Man Who Fell To Earth book cover.
