this blog is made as a spyware to track who's the band member who sleeps the latest.

haha.. ermz tink ppl can juz comment, up to us whether we wan to improve. it's alw easier to criticise than to commend. so, up till now, i stil had not heard of any good comments yet. it's alw crticisms that comes out from ppl who wants to compare us with professional without realising that we're actually students. I keep thinking: "why compare us to fredi???" I believe that the main band sounds OKAY in Colors. (To concert goer, have u listened to the professional recording? i think the band is roughly 70% of that standard) I noe it's normal to have high expectations for a concert, but really, from all the bad comments, I think ppl have been really mean and say things without going through their big brain. I guess I dunnit to elaborate.

To those non-NUSWS ppl who wrote bad comments abt soloist, i've nothing to say but to ask "have u played a solo before? u sure u wun play it badly on concert day? so confident ah? confirm no stage fright?"

But of course, there're definitely flaws in our concert which I hope we can work on as all of u know there'll be some big changes happening to the band. So... dun be too demoralised by all those bad comments (since there're practically no good ones from non-NUSWS ppl), work hard, and dun be too complacent too.

To the new comm, I guess u all shd noe it's THE time to change things in this band.

To non-NUSWS ppl, wait and see lo... InTempo 07...
(I think i should like i wan to fight, sorry, but really... this is wat i feel la)

Well, they did pay good money for the concert, so they have every right to comment on what we churned out that night. But of course if people want to comment publicly about us, it is hoped that they do it in a constructive manner like Mason did, instead of the one that "Weiqin" did.

I'm not sure I'm getting your drift. One doesn't have to have been a soloist to criticise a soloist.

Fully agree. Whether it be as the identity of a performer or as a member of the audience, here's hoping that some positive remarks come out of the band's next annual concert.

oops, that last sentence should read "Whether I am attending next year's concert as a performer or as a member of the audience, here's hoping that some positive remarks come out of the band's next annual concert."

my point is not that only a soloist can criticise a soloist, but ppl who wan to comment shd be aware that the situation on the actual day may change the soloist's performance. juz thank that ppl can be less critical abt soloists, in general. they wouldn't wan to play badly too.

True. But the audience has every right to rip into a soloist if he had performed badly, no matter why he did so. The audience is not expected to understand why the soloist didn't perform well, though of course it would be good if they did.

(Myself, I think he didn't do that badly, but he was darned unlucky to be playing after the audience had heard Mr S's solo. But that's another point altogether.)
