Oxford Comma

Some artists that I have been listening to...

Vampire Weekend - Oxford Comma: "Who gives a fuck about an Oxford Comma..." It took a few listens, but the album makes me damn happy ;)

Ray LaMontagne - Let it be me: Love love love this song

Bloc Party - Signs: Although I prefer the previous albums "Silent Alarm" and "A Weekend in the city" over the new album "Intimacy", I still love Bloc Party

Raphael Saadiq - Love that girl: Great Soul

Bon Iver - For Emma: Such a cool version (I also really like the video's Blogotheque puts up)

"Red Blue Lego Chair" by Mario Minale. Due to the size of the Lego bricks, the chair is 6% bigger than the original Rietveld chair.

Kevin Cheng (鄭嘉穎) and Yoyo Mung (蒙嘉慧) were in the Netherlands to perform at the Miss China Europe pageant final in the Hague. I didn't really want to go all the way to the Hague (and spend € 30,- for a ticket), so I opted to go yamcha in Nam Tin the next day instead, when they were also having a signing session. Because it was too crowded, we weren't allowed to take a picture with them. Did get their autographs though and managed to shake Kevin's hand hehe. Don't want to sound like a groupie and all, but Kevin was just as good looking as he is on tv... As for Yoyo, I'm not a fan of hers, but she seemed very nice and looked even prettier in real life.

Tried to take a picture of Yerk with Kevin, but my camera wasn't fast enough...

Bang Bang

A while back, I got the chance to go to a firing range! We were shooting with three different guns (don't ask me about the exact names and types...) The first one was a big rifle, the ones you also have at a fair. The second one was a semi-automatic gun and the third was a big revolver. For the first and second guns each, we were given ten bullets to shoot, the last one only five. It was really a pity, I was just warming up when I was done shooting. Funny story: I had to shoot at target #2 (there were 5 targets), but the targets were hung a bit strange. I just shot at the target right in front of me and after two shots I realised I shot at target #3. So I quickly changed to target #2. When we were done shooting with the rifle, it turned out that Jeremy (who stood on my left) also shot at my target! There were a lot of hits on that target, but no idea which one were Jeremy or mine ;) The picture above is of the target I shot with the revolver. Three out of five, not bad right? It was really fun! Unfortunately no pictures were allowed. It had something to do with a criminal, who always went there, got shot or something...

So no picture of me being badass with a gun, but here a picture of a lemonpie I made after I went shooting ahahahaha.
