Power Jam 2008



Yesterday, I followed Joe to Zouk for Power 98FM’s Power Jam 2008. And discovered to my delight that local bands are good! The top 5 bands slugging it out last night played hard and sounded good.

The best part for me? Joe’s costume. The theme for the night was Glam Rock and up until 2 hours before the show, we had NO idea what Glam Rock was. I googled it, and came up with sparkly, androgynous, well-dressed rockers. How lah??

The sponsors for the night had already given Joe a pair of black Lee jeans. Vain Joe got them in a size too small, cos he said they were “the right look” for “the show” and “if I was gonna get them for myself, I might get them in my size”. O-kay. Enough with the air-commas. Like a Laser. Sorry.

Oh and plus he was wall-to-wall busy and couldn’t even arrange any kind of clothes for the night. So it was up to me, super wife (ta-dada-TAH!).

I called No.1 Costume Costume for Joe, and ordered up a long, black, shiny coat with tails and as many sparkles on the sleeves and collar as possible, a ruffled shirt for inside, and boot covers.

We get there and the coat they got us was sad. Like sequins falling off and only threads left kind of sad. I think it whimpered when I picked it up. It was a mad mad rush to find something, ANYTHING that worked, cos already late for makeup. (Makeup?! I know!) We go ruffling through the coats they have and I picked up an Arabian coat, a Wizard’s Coat, and a Lab coat. All very neehh.

And then we saw it (ta-dada-TAH!). Glam Rock, you ain’t seen nothing yet!!!

  3. Hi Beckky!What a delicately designed post. Your soft whites are wonderful. I like your two little projects. My yard is always dotted with pinecones and your placecards are a perfect idea.Thanks so much, my friend.Blessings,Carolynn

  4. Definitely give him a try. And let me know what you think if you do. I thought his writing style–especially on Desert Places–was interesting because that was the first time I’d seen a first person narrator in that genre. Usually it’s multi third person. Thanks for stopping by.
