In memory of: Eduard Khil (4 September 1934 – 4 June 2012)

In memory of: Eduard Khil [Эдуард Анатольевич Хиль] (4 September 1934 – 4 June 2012)
4th June marks the 6th Anniversary of the Trololo guy’s passing in St. Petersburg and that month was 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia, as Qatar Airways is best known to fly there starting 19 December 2017.

We look back to one of his songs like “I am very glad, because I’m finally returning back home” (that’s “Я очень рад, потому что я, наконец, возвращаюсь домой” in Russian; and listen to it on Spotify). But while Deadpool 2 is still in cinemas, they’ll never understand to be the same.

Our thoughts goes out to the family of Eduard Khil.

Listen to Я очень рад, потому что я, наконец, возвращаюсь домой on Spotify:

Scene recording from AIW is ILLEGAL: GSCinemas

Deadpool is participating General Elections in Malaysia? NO. Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad and his opposition party Pakatan Harapan (PH for short) have won the General Election earlier this week to restore the power from Malaysians.

Scene recording for AIW was 100% ILLEGAL, says GSCinemas

Obviously Deadpool and the cinema chain in Malaysia would have to take such actions for those found recording a scene during the movies.

A Lush Goodbye

(Source: Facebook – Lush99.5)

After 13 years of operation, Singaporean indie music radio channel Lush 99.5FM has stopped transmission on 31st August 2017 (which was yesterday) at 11.59pm.

It played local music ranging from indie to pop, rock and alternative music, and previously occupied the 99.5 MHz frequency on the FM band.

The station was also known for their smart commercials back in the day, which poked fun at pop-culture horror movies, promoting their station with the tagline “Music changes the mood”.

Lush 99.5FM was launched after the frequency was awarded and acquired by Mediacorp in 2004, after its predecessor, Passion 99,5FM, closed down in 2003 due to a lack of sponsorship and advertising revenue.

In a Facebook post published on 17 July 2017 (which is a Monday afternoon at 3pm), the radio station acknowledged their fans and followers, while announcing that the local music it features will go forward as a project titled “Singapore Sounds”, which will be featured on other radio channels, and online.

Here’s the text of the post, in case you can’t see it:

Lush 99.5FM will be stopping transmission on 31st August at 1159pm after 13 years. Whilst we have built a loyal core of followers, the listeners, who are supporters of local music, we have not managed to grow the base of listeners enough to sustain the operating costs of the station. But we are as passionate as you are about local music so we have put in place the Singapore Sounds project, which will feature local music, artists and gigs on other music stations, 987 and 938LIVE, as well as on 8days.sg. We hope you’ll continue to show your support for the cause through these channels. In true form we’ll be celebrating all things local in the month of August so keep your ears and eyes peeled.

Lush99.5FM isn’t the first radio channel to retire from the scene in recent years.

Expat Radio XFM 96.3, formerly known as International Channel, was founded in 1998, targeted towards the expat community in Singapore, ceased operations in 2016.
