    I have been to two award shows in the past month: Anugerah MACP and the recent AIM 14, which everyone who wins an AIM award will say it's the "local Grammies" as if to validate the importance of the award and their win. The MACP award show was just too much of a goner for me to even make a comment. But the AIM last night just did it for me.

    At about the 28th minute into the show, it all came rushing to me as to why I do not go for these award shows or any kind of live TV telecast shows: It makes me suicidal and makes me not want to be part of the music industry.

    Nothing has changed. Everything is still old. We are still looking back. No wonder this country is so ass-backwards. It infuriates me that the industry is still feeding the people the same crap over and over and over and over again.

    There was this part of me that wished a bomb would go off and kill everyone in the hall. Then the industry would have to start all over again with fresh blood and new talent. But wait...I was there too. So scrap that thought.

    Especially when it came to the medley by the nominees for the Best New Artist award. Five of them. One after the other. I thought they were all singing the same 48bpm ballad until Sean Ghazi came in and did his salsa piece. Only then I realised that there were four different ballads before. Maybe Aubrey used the same piano sound for all the songs. That's why it sounds the same. Right.
