Diana Krall isn't an olden-days singer.. she's a jazz singer..
She isn't even old! Born in 1964.
Shows how much I know about music.

I'm 3/4 of the way through our massive 4 day "holiday" after exams.
There's been a lot of things going on- and a lot of things i want to do/ planned to do, but just haven't. No excuses. Just the way things have turned out.

Last night, i watched Love Actually. It's kinda ironic- Last year I was poking fun of my friend Jen, when we went to England because she wanted to see Love Actually sooooo badly. It turned out that it's a pretty decent movie. I especially liked the different perspectives on love- and how much it hurts and messes with you, but also, how good it is when love is reciprocated. Bitter sweet is how love is described. It is it's own oxymoron.

Also went and saw the Australian String Quartet play in the city. They were awesome. I especially liked Janacek's String Quartet No.2, called "intimate Letters". Reminded me of being in the inside of a person's head who is in love. All intense, and dynamic and manic. It was brillent! Full of emotion, and wonder and sharp juttery edges.

I often wonder if I'll ever find love. Perhaps?

My cousin is getting married at the end of November. I'm hoping that musicians will pop out amongst the congregation in the aisles singing "All you need it love.."
One can always hope.

Australian's are idiots.

1) I was walking to the supermarket, when this random lady came up to me and spat out,"Asian Pig!". I gave her one of my super delux evil-eyes- but refrained from saying anything. She retaliated by screwing up her face with contempt and saying, "Don't stare at me! You might contaminate me!"


2) Johnny Howard was re-elected.
Seriously, are people blind? Stoopid? Ignorant? Hello?

3) Ricky-Lee got voted off Australian Idol.
Don't they know that NOONE can sing the Beatles? That's what makes the Beatles so great..
Oh, and Glenn A Baker- the music historian that was on the show, used to be my next door neighbour.. back in the day when i Lived in baulkham hills. He was scary. I accidently threw my Kit doll(from Thunder cats) over the fence, and was too scared to go and get it. (Pointless story)
