No.

5. :(
Seriously. We’re not telling.

6. Yaaaa. Got it! RA did ‘Rob!’ at KLue Urbanscapes. Is LUM going to be at another event? I prefer it that way cause I have sooo many things to do then to just go to a flashmob and then leave.
No. LUM will not be at an event hosted by someone else. LUM will be very very very similar to KL Freeze in Unison. It’s that kind of flashmob.

At the same time, still clean, random and fun.

7. Errrr. Errmm. Hurrmmm. What do you mean by clean? I don’t like doing flashmobs in the bathroom okkkay.
By clean meaning we don’t meddle with politics, religion and Britney Spears.

8. Ok. But, how am I going to be certain that it’s fun? Are there going to be alot of annoying girls?
At the end of the flashmob, to wrap things up, we are going to shove our foot up your arse.

9. Sheesh! I’m just asking. I’m a busy person. If I know it’s going to turnout great, then I’d come.
If your parents knew you were going to turnout this way, they wouldn’t have had sex.

10. Yea right. WtvRR (whateveRR). I’m not coming.
You were not invited.

KLX has been postponed to 14 June! Watch the new video. Invitations are still open. :)

Hello RandomAgents,

Due to recent developments, we must postpone KLX to 5pm Saturday 14 June.

The last time there was an oil hike, there was also a public demonstration in KL during the weekend. This will significantly affect the safety, smooth running and fun of our KLX.

KLX is similar to the MP3 Experiment done by Improv Everywhere in New York, except ours is far more sophisticated. We studied their videos and developed the idea to something more bizarre. Which in flashmob language, more exciting!

*Below are two videos I think you should watch. The former recorded sometime in the 90′s. The latter is the Official Video for FWED hitz.fm’s version. Ours will be released on 4th May.

Of late I’ve been getting an immense amount of Friend Requests on Facebook. I do not know 95% of them. I suppose it’s because of all the Freeze buzz and putting myself somewhat out there. Not something I had time to think or plan about considering how things have been.

I like to get to know more people and make more friends. But I take the term ‘friend’ somewhat seriously and I avoid adding strangers on Facebook. Yes I do over analyse things and can be hard up the ass. I like things to mean what they’re suppose to or what I think it means.

I’m not sure how much of me they know, but allow me to share bits and pieces. I’m doing so because I am beginning to get this impression that some of you/them think that I’m this celebrity and all is well. A natural misconception due to the Freeze buzz.

Besides what is stated here, I ride a bike. And yes it is often cars don’t take our presence seriously. It looks like a normal 100-125cc bike but with an automatic transmission. I don’t own a car because it is not practical and I can’t afford it. Organising 3 projects in 3 Sundays made my handphone bill go up by at least 300%. My source of income comes from my parents even though I made it a point to stop asking for it years ago, I won’t ask them to stop giving just as yet either. Another part of my income is from teaching PMR & SPM students tuition and doing MC jobs.

All in all, it’s not much but I pull through and I am contented with what I have (beyond the monetary sense) and what I make (beyond the monetary sense). The best times of my life are when I’m with my little sisters. Despite them describing it as a nightmare in broad daylight with their eyes open and their ears covered.

Just like everyone, I rely and am close to my relatives. Except that compared to the average person, I have alot of cousins. They’re everywhere like roaches. They are the people I trust and surround myself with.

Moving along, a few days before Freeze For World Earth Day, I was already talking about the next project in May but that kind of mellowed down because FWED took up too much of my capacity. However, about 90 minutes after FWED ended, I splurge massacre like on the next project when I was having a post-mortem supper with 2 of my Right Hand Men: Hassan SGF & Nasir SHB.

At 3 am, another splurge came and I opened Microsoft Notepad (because I’m old school like that), and typed everything down and expanded the idea even more.

Commentary pictures post KLFU

April 16, 2008

“There is so much nonsense spoken and written about art today that the average man is, naturally, inclined to be shy of the whole subject, and suspicious of those who practise the Arts. He thinks, if this mass of contradiction and confusing jargon is the result of the love of Art, he had better do without Art altogether. There is no mystery about Art, but there is mystification without end, evolved by certain critics who love to pose as superior persons. Such writers put forward the theory that enjoyment of fine arts is reserved for a select and exclusive minority, meaning of course, themselves and their disciples. No greater error could be propounded than this, which is a comparatively modern fallacy and one which is so dangerous that if persisted, it must in time bring into contempt everything and everyone connected with Art”

-From The World’s Greatest Paintings:Selected Masterpieces, published in 1934 edited by Professor T. Leman Hare.

Niki Cheong KL Freeze in Unison The Star

*Thank you Sofia Hishamuddin for scanning the newspaper clipping & emailing it to Freeze@RandomAlphabets.com

There have been so many things going on post-KL Freeze in Unison. We thought the only thing that was gonna come after Sunday was the Official KL Freeze in Unison video, which will be released on youtube no later that 20th April. (Next event already in the works.)

It appeared in the NST on Monday, on the Star on Tuesday, and again on the NST on Wednesday. Besides that, Malaysian Insider also covered the event and other monthly magazines which will have it in their next issue. Astro Awani, TV3 News and 8TV Quickie. Both Hitz FM & Fly FM have been in touch. Per capita, Malaysia has one of the highest number of bloggers in the world. Naturally, alot of buzz came from there too. So did the waiter at my regular mamak joint.

He placed my mee goreng on the table and froze there for 5 minutes. It was great! Because by the time he unFreezed, I finished my mee goreng and he took it away immediately.

Overall it’s been brilliant. The people who participated appreciate the support, coverage and calls for continuity. It’s great to see that there’s discussion about what happened and what’s going to happen next.

Teh Tarik can be kurang manis, or tak cukup manis. But consensus is there: Teh Tarik. :)

In between the photographs contributed by Airi Johario, Vincent Ang, Gavin Garfield, Ian Eugene, Niki Cheong, Fariz Baburs and Azman Hizam, I will be inserting excerpts of what I said on the Wall of KL Freeze in Unison event page on Facebook. Elaborating, in my personal capacity, the postmortem.

Sunday 11.20 pm
One of the main things that I tried to convey from this event was that we are all human beings and we are all the same in certain ways.

If you watch most of the videos online, all of them clapped and celebrated somewhat after it was done, despite trying to go on ‘as they were’.

As human beings, if you achieve something, naturally, you would want to celebrate one way or the other.

Also, lets not get caught up about how ‘it should be’ and how ‘it shouldn’t be’. On the same plane, no country in the world adopts the democracy or rock music as ‘it should.’ They all had their alterations and developments.

Monday 12:21pm
When it comes to certain things, I strive for perfection. KL Freeze in Unison was one of them. I was even afraid that I might scare of the volunteers in the Organising Committee. I was right down to the detail and even a Plan B. And I’m not from an event management background.

A week prior to the event, I lost most of my appetite, spent an immense amount of time with the computer and lost many hours of sleep because my brain refused to stop trotting. If I woke at night to go to the bathroom, high chance I can’t go back to sleep due to brain activity. Now I’ve gone all Oprah on you. Haha.

So I’ll say this, something I knew before Sunday, there’s only a number of things we can be in control of. And even that it is to a certain degree.

The teh tarik could be seen as kurang manis, or tak cukup manis.

I am not asking anyone to discuss anything, or not to discuss anything. But try seeing it from a broader angle, and then from a few other angles that your mind allows you to explore. :)

Monday 1.52pm
Thank you all. The Organising Committee really appreciates that.

At the same time, while I recognise that most present were Malaysians, the scope was beyond that. It was for human beings. I did this primarily because I have been observing for a while now, that a significant number of Malaysians are under the impression that problems and virtues in Malaysia only exist in Malaysia.

It is to point out that we’re human beings and ultimately we’re all the same. Equally knowledgable, equally ignorant.

Whether this message was delivered clearly, or at all, is not really within our control. I am satisfied with an initiated attempt.
