One of the perks of being in the advertising industry is that you often get to meet quite a number of local celebrities.
My problem however is that I'm very very very bad with knowing who local celebrities are.
Let me tell you how stupid I am.
Once I was introduced to Rudy from Rudy & JJ's breakfast show. He introduced himself as "Rudy" and I said "Hi I'm Tim".
Now I've seen many pictures of how Rudy & JJ look like but I STILL DIDN'T RECOGNIZE HIM!!! And if anything... I am one of the biggest fans of the Hitz.FM Morning Crew. I listen to them every other morning!!!
Bloody hell!!! If I had known he was Rudy from Rudy & JJ I would've squealed like a schoolgirl and say
"OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG I LOVEEEE YOUUUUUU.... Please sign my butt cheek!!!!"
Fortunately another time when I met Joey G at an event some time back, someone was nice enough to tell me that he was a celebrity so I would know how to go up and take a picture with him.So anyway a few days ago I heard that I was going to meet Paul Moss for some meeting. Before I went for the meeting though I wanted to make sure that I went prepared and knew at least something about Paul Moss.
Heck I knew he is a judge at One In A Million and is known for giving straightforward honest opinions like Simon Cowell.
I mean you gotta love Simon Cowell... he talks sense.. unlike silly Paula.I get so frustrated watching American Idol and waiting for Paula to quickly say whatever rubbish she was going to say.. not like anyone cares about her opinion anyway.
I did a small poll on my sidebar recently and found that 72% of my readers think that Paula gives irrelevant opinions in American Idol.And it's true.. nobody cares about the other two judges.
Well actually.. okay fine fine. Randy does give some proper feedback with substance but PAULA!!!
I mean heck.
I could go there and stomp my feet and scream around with some unaudible awful awful song and Paula Abdul will still say to me
"Timothy... I feel so happy for you. You look beautiful today and you were wonderful and I'm so proud of you because you're not afraid to show us who you are... yabber yabber yabber... come give me a hug".
And she says that for everyone that performs.
So uhmm.. wait where was I... oh shit sorry okok I got sidetracked there.
Alright so anyway I was doing a bit of reading up on Paul Moss and I found out that he was the producer for Juliet The Orange. JULIET THE ORANGE!!! HOLY COWW!!!
ANYONE REMEMBER THE SONG EYELASH BY JULIET THE ORANGE!??!
THAT SONG BRINGS ME MEMORIES OF MY HIGH SCHOOL DAYS!!! And I still remember back then that I couldn't believe it was a song by a local artiste because well.. back then there weren't many local artists singing english songs.
When I first shook hands with Paul Moss the next day I said
"HEY PAUL!!! YOU PRODUCED JULIET THE ORANGE?? I LOVED THEIR SONG EYELASH!!!"
He looked kinda surprised almost as if I was the first person who ever said that to him but he was polite about it.
I can't believe it!!!
Does everyone else not like eyelash?
Come on.. okay watch this music video and listen to the song.
If you've heard it before.. then you know you're old like me :P
If you haven't.. then... you're probably a lot older than me... or a lot younger :P
Note the people in the video are not Juliet The Orange. Don't think it's an official music video.
Juliet The Orange is a group of two girls who look like this.
