亞福 – 原來如此

標準

亞福,原名鄧褔如的亞福,原是制作人何官錠找來唱demo的一名代唱歌手。據官方說法,是因為她的聲音讓唱片公司老闆張小燕覺得她聲音是可造之材,所以把她簽下當發片歌手。再有一天,何和鄧手痕決定把亞福錄demo時唱nothing on you 拍下了post上網,引來上百萬clicks的"奇蹟"

亞福就這樣出道了。

先不論究竟是唱片公司苦心經營還是真的無心插柳,亞福聲勢是有的,尤其是台灣本土,聽完覺得有點讓我想起王苑之,兩者都是被認為擁有天使般的聲音,不過聽完整隻碟覺得其實兩人風格不同。王是創作型,聲音亦比較偏向美聲,亞福則比較流行,可能因為她本身不是創作人,另外的感覺就是,雖然亞福唱很多英文demo,其實佢口音都幾重…

Girl group

標準

我想這是歷久不衰的formula吧?把穿得不多的妙齡少女放在一扭來扭去

我年輕時香港倒是沒有什麼大紅的少女團體,外國的有spice girls, TLC,日本有早安少女組

轉眼十多年後現在有AKB48, 韓國先有 Wonder girls, 現在有少女時代…說真的,你能夠分得開誰是誰嗎?

唔係好識評論佢地…Spice Girls

TLC,如果我話佢地有才華過Spice Girls 唔會有人反對掛?

播到聽到想發惡夢嘅 Nobody

而家當紅嘅少女時代…我唔識分,個個好似一樣樣…

但係坦白講句…我又覺得更引到我注意力…唉

 

張靚穎 改變

標準

張靚穎是我近幾兩年很喜歡的歌手,在六月一號出了新碟,叫改變;全碟偏重舞曲,和她以往主要情歌很不同。看她訪問,她倒是坦白的可愛,她說,不想唱到歌迷覺得她悶的那天,更重要的是,她自己唱苦情歌唱得悶了

 

The God Delusion

標準

Richard Dawkins is an Oxford university professor, his major works center on evolutionary biology.

In 2006 he wrote a book called “The God Delusion" in which he argues religion is bad for the World. He also host a documentary in British TV channel 4 name “The root of all evil", describing some of the issues he wrote in the book.

Personally, I do not 100% subscribe to his argument (I think Mr. Dawkins would not mind a bit as the ability to doubt, to be skeptical, is scientific in its root, while, Mr. Dawkins argues, religion discourage) but I think he got some very valid points when he points out that faith is a process of non-thinking, non-challenging way(in any religions, especially in monotheism religion) when pushing to extreme, the “I am right, you are wrong" attitude contribute itself to more trouble than peace in the world.

And if we think religion extremist is only available in Islam world, think again, this documentary will show you how Evangelical in America are just as extreme.

Judge by yourself, if you do have the interest and patience, and see which side of the argument you take.

P.S. the very unhappy pastor in video, Ted Haggard, the so righteous I so loved God man, was a very strong advocate to ban homosexuality, to outlaw them. Yet, it was discovered in late 2006 that Haggard was having paid gay sex with a male prostitute for more than 3 years. To that I can only say, fucking hypocrite.
