Someone asked me how my blog and newspaper column came to be titled "Bleachers Brew". It's like this, it's an amalgam of sorts of two things: The bleachers area in the stadium/arena where I used to sit when I would watch baseball, football, and basketball games and Miles Davis' great jazz album Bitches Brew. That's how it got culled together. I originally planned on calling it "The View from the Big Chair" that is a nod to Tears For Fear's second album, Songs from the Big Chair. So there.

Universal Studios Singapore

Spent almost four hours at Universal Studios today. It's at Sentosa! Yep, beside the old casino. I say old because the Marina Sands casino opened two days ago and it's quite something else (they say but since I don't gamble then I don't go to places like that). The Shrek 4-D Adventure was fun. And no, I've not seen any of the films. But I guess I now will. Another one I truly loved was the "Lights, Camera, Action!" as hosted by Steven Speilberg. In this presentation, they showed a soundstage where they recreated a major hurricane hitting New York City! There were lots of stuff to do unfortunately we didn't have time coz we zipped off to the Zoo and the Night Safari.
Jurassic Park/The Lost World is okay. Except that I wish I tried out the Canopy Flyer. Got acrophobia so that sucks.
Battlestar Galactica fan here! Got all the boxed DVD sets save for the final season. And got meself this shirt! Now to slag these oven toasters. The entrance ticket for adults is $66 each and $48 for kids. Each ticket of admission comes with a $5 coupon redeemable for merchandise and another $10 food stub.
This is the set of the "Lights, Camera, Action!" (from the New York area of the park) where the hurricane hits a boathouse. It was sadly too short!
Art deco. Americana. Broadway. Vintage cars. Yep, like this Thunderbird!
