Phoenix - Girlfriend



I bet astral travelers felt/hear this kind of vibration when they transcend into that so called astral plane. It's a happy, peaceful place and I bet this music is inspired from such a realm.

Phoenix - One Time Too Many



Simply a beautiful piece. Lovely.

Phoenix - 1901



The marriage of this choreographed freerun video and music goes hand in hand - in perfect harmony. Song's by Phoenix with the title 1901. Kinda like the hot dog franchise name. Hardly any semblance to the establishment, the title is suggestive of 19th century France where the band likened those days, in 1901, to better life. At least, it's what they imagined it would be.

Revamp on Education System

There is talks about a revamp on our existing Malaysian Education System in which a study (on what I don't know) will be completed by this year's end. You can read more about the announcement here. A total shift in direction on our education system reflects that it is flawed in so many ways, but no reports on the shortcomings has been shown. Though there have been many issues brought up in the media such as our nation's brain drain scenario, rise of unemployment and so on which all implies something troubling within the system.

This blog made a valid argument about the minister's novel decision and asked all the right questions which should be informed to the public so that we understand the gravity of the plight of our nation's people. We need to know how far lacking as far as our education is concerned compared to other neighboring countries as well as further abroad.

The Chemical Brothers - The Devil is in the Details



Hanna the movie led me to this song - a beautiful blend of instruments from different lands perhaps. It does have an eerie feel to it but its charms have more weight and appeal. I like it!
