Could be. Depends on which clips you were watching. He's the frontman/singer of the group now. He used to be the bassist and some of the early vids on utube show him playing the bass (During Baybeats 2007 which they won) and some other gigs. The Album launch at the Substation last Saturday (8/1/11) was also professionally filmed in HD (they were using 5 cameras) and they will be making a DVD of the launch and some of the old stuff of their tours in China, once editing is finished.

There's a real market for this I think. They just need to be successfully connected to it...

Hey, SMS,

Look at what I saw posted on a pillar in Orchard:

They better be careful. In the UK, the promoters and/or management of bands that fly-post are getting their ar$es sued these days. Wouldn't surprise me if SG follows that route if it becomes a big enough issue...

Traveled well! Made it from the Substation to Orchard before somebody couldn't resist! The smaller posters were adhesive backed peel-offs and were selling like hotcakes at the launch. It wouldn't surprise me than there were not more around. Looks like somebody else tried to take it down for a souvenir but instead just screwed it. I have one of the big posters but it's not an adhesive backed one. They were also selling the CD's (tho one came included with the entrance ticket cost), T's, posters, coasters, buttons, etc.

Actually, the only advertising was in various media on & offline and at the SubStation. The fans were responsible for after the fact stuff.

Actually, I think he is doing just the opposite. ev's English, like WIMH's is NOT native (in the way that we are used to seeing from the 'average' local who come on here). But, having talked (verbally off the board) to both and actually meeting one, I can assure x9200 that both are well and truly Singaporeans who do Singapore proud. :wink:


No, WIMH has a better command of English than you. If that is not "native English" then you are probably at EFL level.

You are probably one of those stupid foreigners who walk around going "Singlish!" all the time without realising that Singaporeans speak four different languages as their first language. Though the majority use English as their second language and are hardly fluent in English, a minority of 20-30% of us do use English as our first/native language, and we probably write/speak better than you do.

Mate, because I've seen to many of this kind who will not think twice to look down their own kind just to be in the 'same level' as the expat.

I've nothing against Gay, or locals wanting to be expats, but I have problem with locals who do not respect themselves, their culture, their people, their believes.

What honesty are you referring too? Saying that most Singaporean do not know who is their PM as honest? Most Singaporean do not know the meaning of Majulah Singapura as honest? If those are honest to you, I guess he is just satisfying most of the expats here who like to put the locals down?

How many of those postings on top are posted out of respect for him or just making fun of him??

Cheers mate...


OP is not even literate to Singaporean primary one level. He deserves to be laughed at.

Many Singaporeans are indeed rather pathetic. In fact, I would say the majority are. It is the truth. The sooner people like you accept the truth the better it is.

Whichever, he's got you beat in more ways than one. Except for being toxic.

SGKenneth, SMS is not saying that my and WIMH's english is no good, he is saying the opposite, that we don't speak like the majority of the natives... :D

He wouldn't understand that as he's too wrapped up in his vitriolic self. He is/was our latest troll. Otherwise, why would a Singaporean go to such trouble to get an anonymous ISP out of the US to hide behind? He'll be back and he'll vanish again just the same.

We haven't had a wack-job on here in a while, so I guess it's 'bout time for one. Especially seeing how they lurve to target the old farmboy and 'is rudimentary Engrish. :cool: :devil:
