It was not a good day today, really.
Whatever happened before I faced this computer around 1 hour ago was not really pleasing, but I won’t tell here..
When I went back from buying dinner to eat in office while writing this and that, I checked my personal emails. This account had nothing, that account also had nothing..
I opened another account (how many addresses do I have.. haha) and saw that there is an e-mail from Esplanade, saying that:
MOSAIC 2013. IS. OVER.
I did not even know when Mosaic 2013 started. So I was like, “what the….?”
Yeah, I do know the existence of Mosaic 2013 because I saw SKAPARA (Tokyo Ska Paradise Orchestra)’s ticket sales before and felt quite sad because it was on Friday and I could not be sure that I would be able to come and watch them. But okay then, every year I tend to pass the paying programme.. The so-not-okay one is, for this year, I did not even know the exact date for the free performances that I usually watch..
Anyway, upon seeing that mail, I checked Mosaic 2013 webpage.
Aside of the free performances that look interesting, I usually check if there is Indonesian artists performing (in this category too, of course =P). Usually those who came to Mosaic are the fun, ecletic, indie artists or that type of music which I tend to listen during my secondary school and high school times back then (aside than those jazz and… JAPANESE yeah rite *ok fine SKAPARA is not “yeah rite”*).. Last year Leonardo Ringo (Zeke and the Popo’s vocalist) even came, which was so incredible!
I did the same for this year.
There is even a local band called I Hate This Place. Seriously, almost laughing on the floor.
I felt generally fine.. Until I saw this in the lineup:
OH. MY. GOODNESS.
The third time (at my best knowledge) they came to Singapore, and the third time I missed them performing as well.
When they were performing I was on my impromptu shopping spree
Fine. So gonna cry. SOOOO GONNA CRY. What a way to call it a day!!!!
I have started thinking if I have become too occupied, or too stressed out, or too involved in my own world until I did not notice that Mosaic has started or even to check the lineup closer to the normal month (around March).
But well. What a bad day today. I need to play my White Shoes playlist and hurl I think..
Anyway.. The weird thing is, the song was playing in the background while I saw whiteshoes in the list and felt really really really really sad about it:
Cause even the stars they burn
Some even fall to the earth
We’ve got a lot to learn
God knows we’re worth it
Why somehow I could identify…
*Endlessly crying over Mosaic*
*OK very not grateful that I got two films today*
