Moonshine, 21st June 2012

Moonshine: A Homemade Music Show, down at The Bee, Publika, one 21st of June 2012! Here’s emcee and organizer Reza Salleh in a Mayer-esque hairstyle.

Fa’thu starts the set.

I remember her covering Bob Dylan – Make You Feel My Love. Legit!

She looks totally Malaysian Indian but is actually from the Maldives. Interesting.

Steve McKenzie was next.

Hailing from Australia, he was in cult punk-folk band The Bedridden. (The event page says so!)

Gotta love the very shiny, pearlescent fretboard!

Then came the Diplomats Of Drum, obviously with more than just drums.

Some members play multiple roles.



The magic, of course, of the Samyang 35mm F1.4 on the Sony Alpha 900, at F1.4. The telephoto shots were with the Sony Carl Zeiss Sonnar T* 135mm F1.8 ZA.

The crowd dances to the beat!

The elected wind instrument guy.

Major hoedown.

Eddy Lim on harp!

Altimet on rap.

My Social Attitude


Political Values




These scores indicate that you are a progressive; this is the political profile one might associate with a university professor. It appears that you are skeptical towards religion, and have a pragmatic attitude towards humanity in general.

Your attitudes towards economics appear socialist, and combined with your social attitudes this creates the picture of someone who would generally be described as left-wing.

To round out the picture you appear to be, political preference aside, a pragmatist with many strong opinions.

This concludes our analysis; we hope you found your results accurate, useful, and interesting.

Unlike many other political tests found on the Internet which base themselves on untested (and usually ideologically motivated) ideas, this inventory is adapted from Hans Eysenck’s own political inventory which was developed after extensive empirical investigations in the 20th Century.

Not For The Impatient

18th June 2012: The Impatient Sisters, at one of the San Francisco Coffee Fifteen For Fifteen shows.

As their name literally suggests, they are sisters. They harmonize to form a rather interesting blend. Yet you may call them single origin, heh. Obviously I am not hipster enough to be a coffee expert.

One of their songs features this. Shot through the glass behind them.

The crowd gathers outside.

All shots with the Sony Alpha NEX-5, with either the E-mount 16mm F2.8 pancake lens for wide shots, or the Opteka/Samyang 85mm F1.4 on a LA-EA1 adapter for the telephoto shots.
