the big news!

so a week ago when im just leaving the class i get a phone call fromt his ali...

Ali: Hello, i am ali from geo, am i talking to arafat?
me: (all excited but pretending to be all cool) uh yeah, how can i help you ali
Ali: yar my creative team just heard your song and loved it and we want to do your video as well as an episode which will be kind of like a day with the rising, i want to know what you ahd in mind when you wrote jhoot
me: blah blah...


so the past four days have been one of the most tiring days of my life. the geo team had little time and a lot of shots...on one day we woke up for the shoot at 5 45 am and kept going around lahore for shots (for the day with the rising) than reaching at a law at 3 am (next day) totaly fucked up where they ask us to jam so they can record it and we give the most fucked up performance as well (wait, make it the second most fucked up now, haha (abhi batata hoon kyoon))...and we pack up at 6...kher kal was the performance video shoot..which was AMAZING...but we were so frigging tired...darmayan we took a khaney kee break and went and perfoemd at this very very gay crowd (except a few lovely people who i met) and we gave a pretty average performance withouta ny effect processor lol uskaye the shoot again where the director was pretty pissed cuz we were late..ab i wont go into the details of how the sset was and what we were doing..but i THINK..this might just well be a pretty nice video.

oh and also had a fight with faizan who thought we shouldnt have performed if we had a video shoot AND if the crowd was like what it was like...oh and other than that this girl aisha over here was singing in the soundchekc, she has a really nice voice, very pleasent

so any way we packed from the shoot at 4 am i think...slept for a couple of hours got back home and now writing this. more updates later.
