Introducing: Studio Darurat Putra Putri

It’s a working name. Hopefully, soon Pandji and I will come up with a much better, commercial name for our band. If we don’t, we’ll just stick with this. It’s pretty self-explanatory.

Why this name, you ask? Because we are dirt poor, we don’t have real equipments to record our music properly. So we sing and play, then record everything with our phone, to be processed in Garage Band. Yes, it’s an emergency studio.

Anyway, I’ve always been a huge fan of The Paps. The first time I heard them was in Bandung. I just finished high school. A group of us went to Bandung for university entrance tests. I applied to Unpad and Unpar law schools–I got accepted in both by the way. In between studying for the tests, we explored Bandung. One day we came across an empty school festival. The Paps were playing. It was love at first note.

Pandji doesn’t really listen to them. But we both love The Paps’ ‘Sementara’, anthem for the brokenhearted. We love to sing it loud from time to time.

Pretty sure we were high when that video happened.

What I Do in the Middle of DnD

When I joined my current DnD group, I didn’t expect it to take a lot of planning. There are 6 of us, and that alone is already a scheduling nightmare. So far we’ve managed to play once a month, and that’s considered great. We spend one whole day to finish a campaign, then we’ll continue it next month, as the DM cooks up a new one. Last time, we’re in the third part of Ruli‘s series of campaign. I have no idea how huge his campaign is gonna be. We’re not even close to the big boss yet.

Building a tower of DnD dice is no easy feat!

I also didn’t expect that DnD would consist of a lot of waiting. Granted, there are 5 of us players and only 1 DM. Sometimes Theo helps co-DM-ing, while playing at the same time. It might take a while until it’s your turn. And that’s a lot of turns. So my grabby hands start to build stuff.

Will has a nice collection of Legos. He has everything. Theo and Yogi have a bunch of colourful dice, most of them unused in the game. And my dice are beautiful, because they glow in the dark. My make shift dioramas make wonderful action stills.

12th and Me at the end of the world.

Yes. Doctor Who is great.
