Hong Kong Music Fair 21 - 23 March 2006

Splendid emptiness. Things were not that bad on the first day as most of the management staff as well as the small potatos like me of the organisers and exhibitors were present. After the photo-sessions, everything died down. So, was it an event for the industry only or for the general public? Actually I don't know. It might be opened to public but the only people walked around were mainly those from the exhibitors.

There was an exhibition of various memorabilia of the development of music industry in China and Hong Kong for the past 100 years (and that's the most interesting part of the whole event, but then again, the scale was too small).

L-O-V-E The Winners' costume

Inside the venue,I can't quite get the theme of the event. There were just a bundle of record labels listing out their "artists" (so what for?) and mobile operators showing their new handset models (no difference from any mobile outlets on the street). If I went to this event as a public member, I would not find it much interesting. However, it's a different story if you were looking for souvenirs. My favourite one is the Rolling Stones accessories and a CD of Sony/ATV publishing sampler. I really want to get the Bob Dylan and Boney M albums after listening, so maybe they succeeded in promoting their stuff.

Thanks to the marshmellow kisses which I listened the whole day long (me a very idle boothkeeper), my booth was to promote local independent musicians so there was seldom anyone dropped by :(

The channel launch party this morning

How I survive
with my awkward posture
and dangling mind
Sipping tea
sulky me
Business party
with plastic people (sadly I'm one of these)
Can anybody explain the meaning behind this?

Today morning I rushed to a party - yes a morning party, huh-ha
watching how people exchanged their name cards fanatically
and tried hard to cling to any conversation
(though they knew they hardly had anything to say)
This is something (they called it "social skill") I shall never know
To me, it is definitely a total waste of time.

The Little Prince? our lady of flowers? Reincarnation of Ziggy Stardust?

Actually, there was not much surprise in the gig, don't get me wrong, I'm not complaining (how could I). It's just because of marginal utility that I feel there were too many cross-over shows with HKPO all of a sudden, or maybe the grandeur sci-fi poster made me have higher expection or, Anthony was simply not good at 搞氣氛 (hey, com'on, he's an artist, not an entertainer). I know I'm too critical to my teenage idol. Apart from that, I still enjoy the show, especially the part of Bittersweet Symphony.

Visually of course Anthony would never let me down. I love his Time-honoured campness and coyness, the scene of bloodshed on the snow white and crucifixion.

A set of numbers ... and events.

I was forced to look at these pictures for a month already! OK, the girl looks alright but that's my notice board (and I don't like to look at the nostrils of anybody). It's so brainwashing! I want to pin up my own "collector items" but of course I can't. The tyrannous boss forces me to pin up whatever he likes (and his taste is horrible, these 2 pictures are sort of OK among his choice).

Yes Right Click is the campaign started by my company (doubt if any public ever take notice of it). It promotes the legal download of music, yeah, more right-click, more royalties to music composers and writers (how righteous I am, ha), more year-end bonus!
