the music that can't be seen, but felt

listening to this interpretation of gershwin's rhapsody in blue which i'm really hooked onto, but god knows which orchestra/pianist or when it was recorded because i got it from a burnt cd. amazingly unusually fast at some corners, with super heavy rubatos that accentuate the spirit somehow. talking about interpretations, i guess its what defines you and your style as a musician or conductor or performer or whatsoever, sort of the one thing that can make your music stand out from the rest. sadly not applicable for the amateur musicians like me yet, not just yet. craving to be involved in ensemble music.

"In my opinion, the best thing you can do is find a person who loves you for exactly what you are. Good mood, bad mood, ugly, pretty, handsome, what have you, the right person will still think the sun shines out your ass. That's the kind of person that's worth sticking with."

just caught 'juno'. its a refreshingly good show. lots of intelligent and/or funny lines, dashed with bits and pieces of humour.

happy birthday mr yeo!

two hundred and twenty second post.
just back from another week in green, live firing and all.

guess things can head towards the positive even when you least expect it. its like how everyone has to be so occupied with the methodical events throughout the week, interrupted by the occasional lows and seldom highs. then the countdown toward the weekend. and we just gather to live for the moments and the few hours. so things somehow eventually fall into place. im just thankful for the company of the group of friends. for the good food more importantly haha. for the chance to lose even more money on the square table. for the music back at dover. for the reflections about life in the east. for the gossip updates. for the food. and things have kind of fallen into place at home also. guess time away from home really makes one appreciate family and the warmth.

i'm currently suffering from music withdrawal symptoms terribly. haha. listening to wagner's elsa's procession to the cathedral now and i love it. hopefully the band will sound amazing when i hear them on the 24th at esplanade. haha. oh oh, and definitely gonna sound better than the swedish national wind band version off youtube i hope. their intonation isn't exactly working haha.

two hours to getting my butt back to camp. i think the foster's high tea yesterday and dimsum today are enough for me to endure the camp food for the next three days hahaha.
