Short Talk:

AD:

This is your final chance to win exciting prizes, including a Nokia E90 worth RM4,000 and weekly giveaways of the new iPod nano video!

Battle Of The Bands

You may have heard this on the radio.

Battle of the Bands is the largest intervarsity charity band competition of the year. The Grand Finals is happening this Friday at Sunway Lagoon Theme Park from 5pm onwards. Tix available at the door or pre-booked on 016 2219007. Admission is free and the event will be broadcasted on MTVAsia. It's all for a good cause, and the best part is - I'll be doing my part volunteering as GUEST JUDGE.

Oh yeah, I'm gonna go all Simon Cowell on those poor kids' asses. They better be ready.

If you asked me two years ago if I expected to see my name billed on an event poster alongside VJ Denise and Hannah Tan, I'd laugh at you so hard until my left tit fall off.

hmm... dunno how to say... started to like reading your blog thru your very old posts... nowadays i'm still reading. but, sometimes feel like it's a bit too commercial. yeah, know that this is what u gain from your "blog career", and seems to be a good progress, advancement..

somehow, the "too commercial" feeling is kinda odd.. it's like making something lost.

Unregistered

See you this Friday Kenny!

Unregistered

Unregistered

Oh wow. Pls do some justice to the singing! Some eye candies can't sing to save their ass..

Unregistered

Malaysian rockstars sucks! Except for a few like Estranged. Kenny, be as tough as possible and make them cry and swore to themselves that they'll never attempt to be a rockstar anymore. I'm evil.

Unregistered

What happened to the right one?

LOL

Unregistered

i've got tickets!
you won't be too snobby to take a pic with me right???

Registered

laby, commercialised? This is for charity, dude. I don't get a single cent from this.

Unregistered

OMFG Nitrus! I loveee them!!

Unregistered

It can definitely not be underground if MTV's broadcasting it, along with all the commercialised stuff!

Would like to hear what you'd say, Mr. Sia.

Unregistered

grats ! i love mr potato !

Registered

pangzter, of course its underground. The eight finalists are:

1. The Colors
2. 7 Days After
3. J4N
4. The Rushers
5. 21st Jumpstreet
6. Maria’s Magaritas
7. Boop Pop
8. Graha

Heard of them? Me neither. :) So they're definitely underground.

Unregistered

Unregistered

Hi Kenny,

Just a quick note. Thanks for volunteering for Battle of the Bands : Operation Just Cause

Your readers probably do not know that you took time off work, flew to KL, stayed overnite
just to raise awareness for (8) different Charities. From Cancer to Abandoned Children to Myanmar Refugee Children who have no hope but for the little that all of us do for them.

As what I told OAG/ Estranged/ Shelley / Hannah
Let's CHANGE THE WORLD ONE SONG @ A TIME !

Cheers & See u @ the Party on the Beach,

Jason Ko

Unregistered

I forgot to Add ... Kenny's doing this for Free like VJ Denise, Hannah, Liang, OAG, Ramli Sarip, Point B (Ipoh Mali), VE etc

If everyone charged, we would not be able to have a Free Rock Concert on the Beach telecast to 130 million people in Asia via MTVasia

And we started with just a dream on paper with no budget - 6 months ago!

Thanks again to all!

Jason Ko from MYC!

Unregistered

see you there kenny!! :]

Unregistered

luv readin ur blog but dont seem to understand y u would be there as a judge. if u say it's for charity, then you could just help them talk about it or post it. y a judge when u r really not into music. lots of my jamming kaki also feel it's weird. if they needed someone to listen from the point of a normal guy, then just get any tom, dick n harry

Unregistered

isnt hannah tan from kuching as well?

Unregistered

Kenny has been generous enough to contribute what he could by blogging about it and thus share his point of view.

Here's how I would say the arrangement of the judging was to be done in a musician point of view and an audience's point of view. This is absolutely a very fair arrangement:

Hannah Tan is from the musical background as she has her album available in stores right now. She's qualified to judge on the musical performance point of view right?, am I right to say she can comment on the Vocal and Performance part?

Jason Ko, CEO of MYC! and the Founding Chairperson for BOB Asia... he has some musical background and does have a lot of Public Communications and Relations background too... So, can we say Jason is fit to judge for the presentation and charity cause part? After all, Jason's the Chief Editor for MYC! Magazine...

For Kenny. We assumed that he has no musical background of any sort... but he's still a regular music lover/listener just like you and I and everyone else who we rate as 'tom, dick & harry'. he's entitled to his audience comment too... He's judging as a listener's point of view. Just like if you're to be given a cd album to do a music review on someone you don't know. Isn't that comment given by you a fair one? Similarly, Kenny would be doing the same thing? He's giving his two-cent's worth based on what he heard and he feels. This is what determines the new up-rising bands and also helps decide either that piece of music will be a demand or not. Imagine the album produced and many had disliked it? Waste of time and effort and resources, isn't it? There's no right or wrong to a person's opinion... we only respect the comments. not everyone will like a particular singer/band and not everyone will dislike what they hear in unity. that's why each singer/band have their unique fans and each genre was formed to suit those who prefer what they hear. be it pop or rock etc.

We're looking for a platform whereby ever neutral ground agrees and likes, not a talent search for the next big thing. It's only a platform that the bands can showcase themselves and get known thus at the same time, do a good cause for the ones in need. Thus the theme: operation just cause.

I believe those who disagreed with him did not look deeply inside the music performance... find the common ratio and its the reason because they know the band and were protesting based on their friendship.

From a music industry point of view, the judging panel were placed in a balance. with kenny "standing in the eyes of the world" (well, not world but crowd to be exact). he's just representing the voice of the audience. I know as I've been in countless Guest Judging for such ones.. all the way from college idols to reality tv shows and the coachings...

I thank Kenny personally for replacing me in this round so that I could have time to open my eyes to other matters around me and to view things from a different perspective with the opportunity and time given.

Cheers mate.

p/s: sorry for the lengthy lecture/nag... sounds like it, huh?

Unregistered

eyes played a trick on me?

Unregistered

Hmm .. I'm a Taylor's College student doing some background research on MTV and Battle of the Bands. I'm not sure what this "evie's" beef is, but I met Jason Ko & he has done a lot for College students : ) Hat's Off & Salute.
And I was there @ BOB. It's still one of the best clean events I've been to -hence this Research. We hope they'll do BOB again.
