We have an iconoclast?

iTunes’ party shuffle is playing a copy of: Rattled – Traveling Wilburys – Vol. 1, of which I have the original CD and therefore didn’t steal music.

Singapore has a hero. He is an iconoclast.

I have looked up the dictionary, and that word means that Royston takes the piss out of everything that is Uniquely Singapore. He takes Singapore’s underbelly and turns it over easy. He busks unlicensed.

This is what it takes, folks. Go to it! Wanna be on Time magazine? Don’t go be some technopreneur now. Chew gum, spit, litter, cause a fracas, pay for sex, tag a wall, then go and make a film, making sure you get it banned. Then another Singaporean filmmaker who’s been doing the same thing for a decade will write a short blurb about you for Time.

  1. During dinner last evening, my HK friends were lavishing praise on “I Not Stupid”. They said it was more creative than anything the formulaic HK film industry has turned out.

    I just switched off my “Cynical Singaporean” mode and accepted “on behalf of Jack Neo, who could not be with us that night … …”
