Yesterday as I was walking down the street I saw two little girls, maybe eight years old, walking together. One dropped an envelope without noticing and kept walking. I picked it up and gave it back to her, but as I picked it up I saw a woman start to move towards it before realising I already had it. It gave me a happy to think that I wasn't the only one who would do a little good deed like that.

Then as I walked further on I thought maybe she wasn't doing a good deed. Maybe she was going to open it to see if there was any money inside. Was I being unhealthily cynical there?

Free tickets to go see Pierre Boulez conduct the Ensemble Modern Orchestra at the new Pleyel concert hall on the Champs Elysées in a few hours :)

^ Whoa, that sounds awesome...

I was able to see him conduct an electronicly-assisted orchestra when he was in NYC a couple of years ago - an amazing/freaky experience.

I got a happy after finding a song influenced by Jonathan Lethem's Motherless Brooklyn:

The lyrics are pretty great, especially this stanza:

And it's a sorry, frightful thing
when you want to cry, but you can't keep from laughing.
Outside the church that's so quiet it dares you to shout
you put a hand to your mouth to stop the rain.
You do a St. Vitus dance, to the sky you raise your voice.

^^ you guessed right, it was awesome !

They did an Edgar Varese piece that rocked everybody's socks off. There is alot to be said about a 50 person crescendo :)

Contemporary music is not always to my liking, but if Boulez is directing it is a sure sign that something interesting is going to happen. His presence on stage is amazing: he is extremely calm (impassive facial expression) yet completely in control of every aspect of the music. From the moment he walks on stage, not a single movement he makes is wasted - there is a very zen quality to the whole performance.

He is also probably a bit of a control freak in real life ;)

  1. That our workgroup has collectively decided on an inofficial train-strike holiday due to ongoing transportation problems

  2. That me and two mates go to that exhib

My probationary evaluation, new office furniture, and surprising the smallish rat by meeting her at the bus stop.
