TalkingCock in Parliament event

Great shots taken by t3htarik at the TalkingCock in Parliament event.

See the rest at t3htarik’s flickr set

We took this backstage, while practising for our segment.

Taken by friend Steve, the crowd clapping to that song while I, seized by a need to get jiggy with it, danced to the rap.

Gaurav also has photos at his flickr page.

Fixing the sound problem2

This shot of Miyagi by t3htarik was taken when we were troubleshooting a technical problem. When we were setting up, and realised that the Old Parliament Chambers did not have a sound input point at the podium (so low tech one ah), which we needed because I had laryngitis and was using a Powerbook to read my parts with Apple’s Speech feature. In the end, Hossan came to our rescue with his iMotion portable iPod speakers and we managed to get decent amplification with a mic placed in front of Hossan’s speakers. Thanks, dude!

    Mr. Brown in Parliment.

    Sound system poor? Get used to it. You might find yourself back in there in “some” capacity.

    So say we all.

    Ya.. Videos!!! I’d love to see it all again!!!
    Was at the parliament house too, front row summore!!!
    It was a killer show, definitely.. Would love to watch Hossan’s and Ruby’s speeches (well, a song in Hossan’s case) again.
    Ruby was just splendid.

    Heh, my friend recorded Hossan’s act on his phone, planning to post it on Youtube later on, only to forget to save the file afterwards. Dumbass. Heh.

    I was proud to be a Singaporean and found the ’show’ HIGHLY entertainly and touched my heart.

    However, I just read this and I AM ANGWEE!!!!! As a Singaporean, I am so ashamed. http://forums.hardwarezone.com/showthread.php?t=1377505

    PLUS, I’ve discovered I cannot use Nicoll Highway from 10 to 20 Sep! Now I feel what it means to be a Singaporean - PUT UP A SHOW (unfortunately not Mr Brown Show). I feel that Singaporeans now also mean ‘LOW PRIORITY’.
