The Bible contains six admonishments to homosexuals and 362 admonishments to heterosexuals. That doesn't mean that God doesn't love heterosexuals. It's just that they need more supervision.

A Desperate Plea For Help - Noah's Ark Cares

A friend informed us that one of our beneficiaries from our last charity art show requested for support from the public in regards to this unique case of a 72 year old lady who's been living alone with many other strays she had taken in for the past few years. For the whole story, please visit Noah's Ark Cares blog by clicking on the title itself.

We urge those animal lovers, especially those who continues to support SPCA by sending them money & such, to redirect their financial support towards Noah's Ark Cares. They provide these strays with proper vaccination, food, water and most importantly, a home to stay. So once again I urge all of you SPCA supporters, its time to open up your eyes & look at the big picture.

The Best Tunes/Remixes/Albums of 2008

A few of us in facebook have been compiling our top ten tunes/albums for the year 2008, and we thought would be fun to post them up and maybe to encourage others to talk about theirs. So do drop us your comments and tell us your top ten favourite tunes/remixes/albums!

I'll start, here's My Top 10 tunes of 2008 - (not in any particular order):

01 Stepping Stone . Duffy
(my fave track from the album, Rockferry period! And since Rockferry is my fave album of the year, guess this would be the best song of 2008 for me! Maybe it's the lyrics that hit a nerve or her passionate voice, it brought tears to my eyes the first time i heard this.)

02 Black and Gold . Sam Sparro
(This one is totally addictive! I couldn't stop tapping my feet everytime i hear this! Love the soulful voice!)

03 Blind . Hercules And Love Affair
(enough said abt this... was so good, i did a review earlier on this site!)

04 Green Light/Rope Of Sand . Jamie Lidell
(from one of my fave albums of 2008, can't decide which i like most :) On Greenlight, he sounded like what Sam Cooke would sound like in 2008, pure brilliance! And i love the lyrics of Rope of Sand, a haunting ballad, "So much I don't understand, but one thing I know, every day is a rope of sand, we should be learning to let it go.")

05 Out At The Pictures . Hot Chip
(opening track of their "Made In The Dark" album. It's a madcap, totally delicious & infectious offbeat piece of electro pop. It's New Order going a bit nutty!)

06 Piece Of Me . Britney Spears
(Other than Toxic, I think this is Ms Spears' best song ever! "Blackout" is also her best album ever. Too bad both the song and album were greatly ignored. Actually another track Radar is just as good...)

07 Make You Feel My Love . Adele
(Chills down my spine the first time i heard this. Just a soulful love ballad beautifully sung. At 19, she actually sounded like she has years of experience in love! It's the kind of songs i wish someone would make a love tape with, hahaha)

08 On My Shoulders . The Do
(Think pop-rock sound of The Cardigans meets offbeat creativity of Bjork, that's how i would describe this. Stumble upon them while reading some music magazine, was intrigued and downloaded the whole album. One of my best finds this year. Just love her warbling voice, it's fresh, moving and quirky all at the same time.)

09 Cobrastyle . Robyn
(I was hooked the moment she went "I press trigger, i don't press people's button"... There's so many great tracks on her self-titled album with tracks produced and written by The Knife (Who's That Girl) and the song that brought my attention to Robyn, Konichiwa Bitches. But this is my fave track. It's a 2006 track by Teddybears, a punk rock /ska track. Her version is catchy, fast and totally fun! It's for me the ultimate pop song this year!)

10 Because . Madita
(I have been trying to download her album "Too" :p But only managed to get this song! hahaha, but it's ok cos it's one of my most played songs this year on my ipod. She sounds like Fiona Apple went jazzy. It's the song to play whenever i'm down. Totally perk me up!

Hear from you guys! Vitalauto

(Closed)"Pre" X'mas Pot-luck Picnic @ Sentosa Siloso Beach, 20th Dec '08

Thank you to all of you guys who turned up and brought us those delicious goodies and munchies and what not! It was certainly difficult to wake up so early running to Tiong Bahru to get their famous char-siew paos and then rush to VivoCity so early in the day. I wanna thank you all for that! Oh also, thank the gods it didn't pour today! :)

Sorry to inform all that Siloso Beach is 1/2 closed due to their preparations for New Year's Party. Therefore, we will move to Palawan Beach instead! I have sent all of those who are going an email, please check! We will still be meeting at the same time & place, just the destination is changed.

I think the last time we tried to organize a Sentosa outing, it got canceled due to the Pink Picnic, Indignation 2007... Anyways, this time round we're going there for a fabulicious picnic under the sun, amidst the sandy shores, the gentle winds and not forgetting the *gulp* "sights"...

We will be spending the mid-morning till the evening when the sun sets, please feel free to bring along your personal stereos, swimming trunks & costumes, suntan lotions, frisbees... Does anyone have a volleyball???

Oh oh oh and most importantly, we need to hammer out who is going to bring what kind of food for the pot-luck picnic too. Typical examples would be sandwiches, fish fingers, chicken wings, pastries, pies, Kebabs etc. (U get my drift... something light yet sustainable :)

So for those who are confirmed going, I will put their names down and what food they would like to bring. I will need volunteers to help bring drinks, especially those who drives a car. Here are a list of things that I need volunteering:
  1. Driver/s - Transport for drinks, icebox etc. (1 will do) -> 2xist_Thong
  2. Picnic mats (Depending on how many will be going, I suppose... 5 mats?) Currently only have 2
  3. Paper plates/cups/serviettes -> Asimov_22
The post will close on 18th Dec, so please sign up early. Looking forward to seeing you guys again!
