THE X'HO-FILES

"ABSOLUTE POWER CORRUPTS"

The above quote is from Hedwig & The Angry Inch (of which Rolling Stone hails: "Hedwig may just re-invent the rock musical").

No Hedwig for Singapore despite seven gay saunas beckoning, not to mention another giant gay rave-event at Sentosa (3D on Nov 30)? No worries, just blame it on unkeen distributors. It's the best "bumwhip" cover-backside foil for these Merlion shores. After all, the authorities have outrightly condoned bohemia. So what's a little bother like Hed- or bum-wig?

As for the "absolute power" quote... It's to prove my ignorance in matters political. I'm sure some political figure/icon/whatever had proclaimed some such outcry about absolute power one time or other in the political history of mankind. But would I know who it is? Of course not. Truly, my bohemian interest extends only to Hedwig and the like. So DON'T call me political for chrissakes. Not now, not ever. Get it right.

As for the implication of that quote on these durian-shores... urh, urh, urh, urh... Sorry luv, that don't apply to us in Singapore. We've got two opposition-party leaders in Parliament now. So what am I trying to say?

Well, don't worry Mr. Power-Holder, I'm merely doing my art-school bohemian part to help forge the impression that there's truly dynamic dialogue in our midst now. We're Singapore. And that means — we're always covered!

ABSOLUTE POWER CORRUPTS APPLIES TO US NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT — X'Ho
