Totally and utterly baffled.

RAIN DOWN ON ME (from a great height)

“Subjective is love’s true form but not love’s definition” – Lois Emma, 2008

After assessing facebook statuses (as you do!), I came across a link to a Radiohead concert at the Santa Barbara Bowl from 5 days ago which was available to listen to. ALL two hours of it. Today could be my “lucky” day. As a Radiohead fan (past, present and future) this made me blithe! I proceeded to listen and was nevertheless impressed. The piano was beautiful and the reporter said all the right things – “There are so many people here who never sat down from the first note onwards”.  I have never seen the band live and am really dying to. Lois Emma has got The Bends.

I continued my search further. In November of last year, when In Rainbows was released, I was able to catch a podcast where “Faust Arp” was performed at the top of a hill by Thom Yorke and Jonny Greenwood. I reminded myself of this clip by going to YouTube. Whilst there, I watched a video by Gabriel Barcia-Colombo (also to Faust Arp). He kept with one setting and the character moved in accordance to the music. The end and the beginning of the video were the same whilst the middle was filled up with different emotionally expressive movement. The journey continues. I came across more videos by Gabriel Barcia-Colombo. My favourite creation was The Achaean Press by Frog Eyes, a Canadian band known for their highly idiosyncratic style. 

Amazingly fitting stuff. As a “budding young film writer”, this was full of inspiration for new ideas and gave me a new band to listen to!

My letter to U is finished. I’m going to post it tomorrow when my cheque has cashed. I hope he likes it. It took a while. I love letter writing 🙂

I also made my very own chocolate raisins with Nutella – delicious!

I needed this.
