The Whitest Boy Alive in Kuala Lumpur

After much persuasion I’ve finally got my very own .com Please do update your bookmarks to my new blog

Have never heard of The Whitest Boy Alive ? Don’t worry, you’re not the only one. I had many friends who were asking who was this whitest boy alive and is he anything like that white boy in Powder; which is a 90’s movie for those of you who don’t know. Once I mentioned that it’s one half of Kings of Convenience; who brought the house down during their very first Kuala Lumpur show last year, only then did some of them go “Ahhhhhhh”.

The Whitest Boy Alive

The Whitest Boy Alive

The Whitest Boy Alive (TWBA) is three-fourths German and one-fourth Norwegian. Erlend Øye, the Norse quarter this musical pie, is better known as half of indie band duo Kings of Convenience (KOC). This time he sings again, yielding electric guitars and dancier tunes thanks to his mates from Deutschland: Marcin Öz on bass, Sebastian Maschat on drums and Daniel Nentwig on keyboards. What started off as a side project during a Berlin stint back in 2003 has evolved, now they tour the world showcasing their unique music style. TWBA is a little bit pop, a little bit rock, a little bit disco, but completely bound to get you feeling good and busting out those moves on the floor.

Socks for Japan ~ let’s do it!

We’ve all heard about the tragedy that has befallen Japan and everyone has been asking “How do we help ?” but has done nothing about it. Well here’s one way we can contribute directly to those who have been left homeless. It’s raining in Sendai and will soon be snowing. Hypothermia can set in at any time for the victims.  The quake has shaken Japan. But it has not shaken our faith in what us fellow humans can do for one another. Its raining now in Sendai and soon it will be snowing. Hyporthemia can set in anytime for the victims if they are not kept warm. Jason Kelly, an American author living in Japan has initiated this campaign and all his friends as well as strangers are helping out.

I learnt of the following Socks for Japan campaign via Poesy and Evelyn :

Read it closely and see how you can chip in.

Alternatively here it is from Jason’s site
