 Ah Tom Lehrer you are amazing and awesome and I'm not sure how I've HAD an album of yours for months and months and hadn't listened to it until tonight.

The things that amuse my muso mind... )

What I actually *did* today was work (teaching job) and then rushing to this mini concert thing they were putting on in order to support my students (one way to make me feel like a real teacher...) but managed to be too late to see them play. Sadface. She said it was 'okay' though, which coming from this student means she was probably totally fine XD

It's interesting listening to the standard of the other students. Pretty common music school concert, some were terrible (nerves or poor teaching you never really know), some were decent, and there were one or two that screamed 'so much potential'. Pity that the one that jumped out at me as 'she could be amazing' had a shocking bowhold (DOES NO ONE ELSE TEACH PEOPLE TO BEND PINKIES GEEZ), and will need to change teachers to improve much more. Which knowing the way these things work, she may not any time soon. Which makes me kind of sad, tbh. I think the piano teaching is much more consistent, there were some pretty good piano students.

Then it was me driving all the way home, dropping off my violin, and then jumping on the train back into the city to go watch my friend, B, sing his first solo jazz gig. He has such a gorgeous (countertenor) voice, it was a perfect way to unwind. I've been wanting to hear him sing for a while. He's also adorable. although I will never not find it amusing how many 'effeminate gay male' stereotypes he fits. never. he just doesn't give a shit either which is part of what I love about him

I actually teared up at one point. Oh and apparently we're doing a 'fancy afternoon tea' because we managed to miss each others' 21sts and haven't actually caught up in a few months. <3

That's all, folks.

 Oh my god guys, it was awesome.

I have decided that I love midnight showings. The atmosphere is epic. So epic. Cheering, clapping, booing, laughing when something is meant to be serious but is completely hilarious... WIN.

So, there were a few of us who decided to go, and (most of us) went all out with the costumes. I'll have to do a picture post later when I can get the photos myself, but for now have a rundown of characters.

I went as Bellatrix, as I have said, and apparently succeeded in looking fantastically evil and creepy.
harpisan went as Molly Weasley, and we were pretty happy with our selections considering the battle scene ;)
thalia03 was a Hufflepuff student/mascot complete with awesome yellow cape
Ame was Professor Trelawney
S was Hogwarts student no. 43434324
M was Tonks
I think snuggle_monster won though. She went as Hedwig.

A few of us got asked for a photo by this random girl, and snuggle_face had someone come up and ask for one, and then got really excited, pointed to her head and said, I quote,  'oh my god I was so sad when you died, can I take a photo with you?'
I think her selfconsciousness about her costume choice vanished about then.

The best costume I saw though would HAVE to be the big guy dressed pretty convincingly as Hagrid, but the best bit was that the person with him was in a dog costume. Yep. People came as Hagrid and Fang. =D


Now, for the actual movie itself...

SPOILER ALERT )

On the way there we listened to wizard rock, because we could, and on the way home our discussions got... interesting. I am blocking most of it from my memory, but let me jsut say - it revolved around fanfic pairings. pebblegosling you would be proud...


And now I'm off, because I need a shower and feel totally gross. My hair is like straw because of all the hairspray that is in it - it did look freaking awesome I must say.

 Guys guys guys, my technical exam is DONE!! It went so much better than expected, so I can relax a bit now. I have one more exam on Friday and then a month of delicious freedom.

I've gotten fairly slack with lj-posting, I will probably remedy that once I'm properly on break.
Since my last freak-out post over violin I:
- finally got off my arse and did some serious practice
- skyped [livejournal.com profile] pebblegosling  multiple times
- decided that I am taking the year off practical violin next year, and I won't go back on that now. I need a break from the stress it causes, and need time to settle into a proper routine
- put together my Esmeralda costume for the Disney-themed party I'm going to on Friday (I'll post a pic if I remember!)
- have bought myself clothes for the first time in ages
- finally paid off all those insurance claims
- spent a lot of time on tumblr and reading fanfic (including RPS for a movie I haven't seen - sign of good writing, right there)
- had a couple of good shifts at my teaching job
- taken my violin in to get a couple of niggling things fixed, of course, as soon as I physically *can't* play it, I wanted to

Last night was so much fun. I went to see Bell Shakespeare's production of 'Much Ado About Nothing' with [livejournal.com profile] snuggle_monster  and [livejournal.com profile] thalia03  and it was ridiculously funny. I honestly haven't laughed that hard in a long long time. My stomach hurt for ages afterwards. Beatrice was so good, so acerbic but still came across as not entirely bitter, Benedick was freaking hilarious because instead of putting on the overly formal accent a lot of actors do in Shakespeare he still had this almost-Bogan Aussie accent... took me a little while to warm up to it but once I did it was hilarious. The use of music was great, random assortments of instruments and awesome vocal harmonies - so good. So much of what made me laugh was physical humour, so it's not all stuff I can remember or describe now. Although one thing that cracked us up so much was the way Don John and his cronies were characterised - as mafia-type guys. The way the guy who played Don John was SO much like Rowan Atkinson's way of playing Mr Bean, we were in hysterics at points because of that.

I'd forgotten how much I love some of the more sappy dialogue in this play. 'I love you with so much of my heart that none is left to protest' <3

The ending was the single most appropriate way I could ever have thought of to finish that play. Basically, everyone is coupled off, embracing, and it's a really sappy affectionate moment. Cute. Lights dim except for on Beatrice and Benedick, as he reaches down and grabs her arse. Audience as a collective group: awwww.... HAHAHA XD

Today, thalia03 and I started studying for our English exam on Friday, watching Endgame and writing notes on poetry, interspersed with parts of movies and watching bits of Spring Awakening on youtube. The cast list for our uni's production went up the other day, and we were highly amused/surprised that the guy I kind of sort of have a mini crush on in English is in it. How do I spot the musos/musical theatre people in a LIT class?! Even for my instincts that's ridiculous.
We now have a plan to talk about Spring Awakening obnoxiously before the exam and try to draw him into conversation. Comfort zone, I am leaving you. Yep.

I think that's enough now!

Semester 1: complete!
Well, classes anyway. It's enough for me.

Proper update! )

Phew! I think that's all the real life updating I wanted to do. Now, there are a couple of things I want to share.

Random ridiculousness brought to you by myself, my friends and my mother )
 
The beauty of words )

I think that's more than enough from me, now. I'd better go pack!

Today was so up and down, it was ridiculous.

I've been in a bit of a down mood since the accident, mainly because of all my savings basically going down the drain.
[livejournal.com profile] pebblegosling , Japan is now looking very very unlikely. I'm sorry, and if I'm being honest that's what I'm most upset about. It's just like me to not realise just how much I want something until the chance is ripped away from me. I'm not even going to do any more calculations, because it'll just depress me.

Anyway, Dad (who has been amazing about this whole thing <3) let me take his car to uni (THANK GOD) today, and let me just say it is SO strange driving a 4-wheel-drive after my tiny little corolla. Goodness. It felt like a monster, even though it's only a small 4WD, as they go. Missing my music already, that's what keeps me sane driving that far every day.

So I get to uni, sit through English and can't focus at all, finally wake up for Indo. All normal, all fine, until one girl is getting her words muddled up and Bu Y decides to start singing. Why? No freaking clue.
'Jumat, Jumat, ada pesta pada hari Jumat' ... Friday. IN INDONESIAN. Best. Lecturer. Ever. Needless to say, after that I could NOT focus. Between laughing that my class ran with it (I am so ashamed that I will now never again confuse the words for tomorrow and yesterday - 'kemarin adalah Kamis' because of this damn song) or just getting the giggles whenever I thought of her singing it.

... It's been stuck in my head. All day.

Then it was another fairly boring music lecture, a break for lunch, and then I hung out with thalia03 before/after our English tute.
In which I remembered that I have a massive thing for intelligence in guys. A guy in my class did his presentation, and he spoke really ridiculously well and was so passionate about the poetry that he was talking about - he was cute too. I was sitting there and just went 'whoa okay you just got about 10 times more attractive to me'
Not that I showed that outwardly (although I think our tutor thought that, more on that in a second).
The poem we were studying was about a graveyard (fail!student, don't remember the name) and someone made a comment like 'Rameses believed that you aren't truly dead until no one remembers who you are'. All I could think of was Dumbledore, and said as much to thalia03. We both made exaggerated gestures with our hands over our heart and muttering, and I caught our tutor sending a confused look our way. Amusing.

I have to go work now, but one last thing:
I PUT MY NAME DOWN FOR SPRING AWAKENING. The orchestra. The director was so excited when I said I played violin, and was a second year music student and ahhhh I'm so pumped! And daunted, because I'll be the only violin if I do it. But mostly excited. I checked the dates, and it's after all of my actual orchestra stuff is finished so there won't be any clashes with that. WHEEEE.

That took the edge off my crappy mood, so <3

 I am happy to report that I am feeling much much better after a couple of decent night’s sleep (damn it Dad, why must you be right?! XD) Between yesterday’s study session (which was fun, after all yay!) and my productivity today I am not feeling quite so worn down.
True, I still have a lot left to do – but I’ve finished all my homework tasks for the week, and so can focus on all these pesky assignments. I also managed to get in about 2 hours of really good practice in so I am really happy with myself atm.

Study and real life )

These past few days have been ridiculously up and down mood-wise for me. Not sure what brought this on, to be honest, but I only have energy for a tiny recap here.

On Thursday I went into uni to study - I met up with Ame first, which was fine, except she was helping someone else with some homework and so it still feels like we haven't actually hung out. This makes me a little sad, why is uni so insane this semester?!
I then met up with snuggle_monster and thalia03, the latter of which I ended up talking more to as snuggle_monster had to clean (not entirely sure why, but something to do with student theatre). I am so happy that we get along like that, by the way. So happy. <3
OH!! I found out then that there is a big possibility that the musical Spring Awakening will be staged September-ish this year, not just the play version as we had previously thought. I WANT IN SO BADLY!!! Which is a distinct possibility, considering I know people in student theatre already. That news pretty much made my day. I got so much done then, and over the past few days, I am so proud of myself. I literally have my Indo reading and translation to do tonight, as well as practice, and I don't have ANY other work to get done this week. Except read Jane Eyre, but that IS rereading so it's not urgent. WHEEEEEE

Friday was a weird morning for me, I basically got hit with a huge wave of loneliness and I have no idea why. Thank god for amazing friends who know just what to say to help. The day improved from there, I was still very productive so all is good.

Work yesterday was fine, except for one kid's violin being a freaking pain and the bridge refusing to stay upright when I changed strings. Gah. I felt so bad, most of his lesson was me trying to fix the damn thing. It flew by though, and I think I may have poached a student from another teacher. I feel bad, but that makes me happy - it gives me confidence that I'm actually doing this well.


THEN it was onto my amazing weekend. (yep. I don't count my weekend as starting until 3pm on Saturdays =P) Because I've been so on top of everything this past week, I had said to myself that this was a weekend off. 
I got home, read a fair bit of fanfic to chill out, then found out we were going to have Thai takeaway for dinner. Omnomnom. I then headed out to the MSO's performance of Mahler's 7th Symphony - amazing. Not bad for a free ticket I scored through uni. Oh, and the conductor's surname was Wigglesworth. Not even kidding. I lol'd at that. Probably too much.

After that, it was on to snuggle_monster's place, where she and thalia03 and I were having a Glee marathon. Purportedly to catch thalia03 up to Glee, but I think we all just enjoyed laughing at each other's reactions to people - and joking about things I'd never have expected.
True to our style, our silliness was often interrupted by serious, full-on moments. It's part of our charm. An amazing night all round, I say.


This morning (well, okay, afternoon) we watched another ep of Glee (Original Song, I couldn't resist) and then went on a huge nostalgia trip of our favourite kids shows. Including the likes of:
-Noddy
-Johnson and Friends
-Ahh Real Monsters
-The Trap Door
-Mr Bean
-Okie Doke
-Rugrats

I also now really want to rewatch Chicken Run.

For you, snuggle_monster


Love you pebblegosling!


That's all for me, off to do translation, then practice, and then chill.

PS. Have two random things that have amused me recently.

Ryan Murphy about comments asking why he focuses on gay storylines:
"we have thus far in the glee club two gay characters, and people are like whats with the gays, and i'm like you are aware it's a show about show choir?"
/collapses

"If you need an extension, or wish to submit in an unusual manner, such as by carrier pigeon, please ask your tutor."This is why I love my English subject. The lecturers are full of win.

 I've been resisting posting all day, so I can actually get some work done, but I've had a really productive day and this is now my break.

This Klaine video is so beautiful. I love it.
It won't let me embed it, but watch it here.

The past few days have been pretty crazy, really. What with study, work, practice, and then heading to sine_animo's place for a sleepover last night I've been so busy. Great though.

A few points, to make this quick:
1. Planning out my practice helps. A lot. I've gotten a lot done in a short amount of practice time! Efficiency win =D
2. This muscle relaxation thing is AMAZING. I can never get my brain to switch off, normally, and when I do these exercises I drift off to sleep about 5 minutes after finishing. I haven't felt so well-rested in a long time.
3. Hanging out with sine_animo is epic. 

On that last point, here is a sample of what we did.

We squeed and fangirled like crazy over Glee. Again.

We watched Hercules. Some of the lines in that movie are SO amusing, and would have flown straight over my head when I was younger. Like this:


Epic win call of the night though, goes to sine_animo for 'cockblocking cloud'. At the end, when Hercules and Meg are kissing a random cloud comes and takes them away.
(it also wins the award for most real-looking Disney kiss ever. just saying)
A lot of Hades' lines are briliantly sarcastic and amusing too.
Then, we headed out to her spa and had a playlist of Darren Criss, Glee, and random other loves of ours. So good. Apart from entertaining her god-sister for a while (she's 8 and needs attention like she needs air), we had the chance just to talk. About anything and everything.

Then it was rewatching the 'Sexy' episode of Glee, and then I had my mind totally blown.
When I was a little kid, the only places I would watch movies were at my two sets of grandparents' houses. At my mum's parents house, I would watch all manner of Disney movies. At my dad's parents' house, I would watch 'The Swan Princess'. Over and over and over. I loved that movie to pieces.
I was informed last night that Jean-Bob, ie the epically funny frog, was VOICED BY JOHN CLEESE. WHAT IS THAT?!
So naturally, after that revelation we HAD to watch some of it. I want to rewatch that movie so freaking much now. As a parting gift, here is a song from it that I just found, it was always one of my favourites. I still haven't found the turtle's amazing 'friends call me speed' line. DO WANT.


Rdm

PS. This made me laugh hysterically when I got home.

 These past two days have been pretty damn awesome, if I may say so.
right now I'm ignoring the not-so-awesome bits

I started the day by oversleeping and having to rush to class - which turned out to be a fairly pointless, if vaguely amusing Indo class. Then, it was off to my lesson, and it wasn't terrible. Which is amazing considering I hadn't done enough practice by any stretch of the imagination. I'm so glad my teacher is really understanding, and she suggested writing out detailed 'practice plans' for myself, in half an hour blocks, and try to stick to them. I've written a few up as of half an hour ago and so hopefully it'll help me stay on track. I think it should work, because my problem tends to be that once I miss a couple of days I get really overwhelmed and don't know where to start.

Glee + brain-twins = epic flail )

After she went home, I headed out for a farewell dinner for [livejournal.com profile] pebblegosling  at Taco Bill. We had a great time, what with yummy food, awesome company, general silliness and fishbowl margaritas (which have 11 shots of tequila in them). The way the alcohol affected different people provided me with endless amusement.
You have pebblegosling - who needs 12 shots to get tipsy. She was pretty much sober.
You have wolfielove - who drank half of her fishbowl and was very silly and happy and bubbly.
You have snuggle_monster - who gets completely drunk from 5-6 drinks, and drank about a quarter of hers.
And then there's me. I drank my own small margarita, and then ended up finishing off the remaining 3 quarters of snuggle_monster's. I was feeling a bit woozy when I first tried to stand up, but felt pretty much sober by the time we got home (before we headed out to the park so as not to wake my brother - we were under threat of death if we did, he had an assessment this morning). I only worked out this morning that I drank something ridiculous like 8-9 shots and it barely affected me. WHAT IS THIS?! Insanity. That's what.
It was also very very funny watching snuggle_monster and wolfielove bounce off each other.
We then rewatched Glee, because we could.

The other funny moment happened this morning. We were all sleeping in my living room, wolfielove on one couch, me on the floor and snuggle_monster and pebblegosling spooning on the other couch. Nothing odd for those two, they're both cuddlebugs. By the time it was morning, pebblegosling was still in the 'big spoon' but snuggle_monster was lying on her stomach with her head turned towards her. Dad came out, took one look at them and said 'girls, you may not want to sleep like that if you don't want any rumours to start'. I just thought that was hysterical. NOTHING SUSS.

Today, after they all went home, I headed into the city to meet up with harpisan for a study date. I actually got a fair bit done - which means that if I do my practice properly tonight and then fix up a few little odds and ends of tasks then I'm totally on top of my work! Pretty proud of myself right now.

EVERYTHING IS KLAINE AND NOTHING HURTS )

The most ridiculous things make me laugh insanely hard.

I had a really great weekend - slept over at sine_animo's place with snuggle_monster, watched the Emperor's New Groove because snuggle_monster hadn't and needed to. Of course, she thought it was epic. She also was in hysterics over some things that even I don't find *that* funny. After that we talked, danced to bad 90s music and were alternately ridiculously silly and very serious. We certainly are brain-twins.
Our next thing is trying to get myself, snuggle_monster, pebblegosling and sine_animo in one place to hang out. I think our brains would explode completely. (brain-twins plus brain-twins plus really good friends)
I then went home at about midday on Sunday, and was actually productive. I was so proud of myself.
I went to bed early as well.

Then proceeded to sleep through my alarm and wake up 20 minutes after I was supposed to leave for uni. GAH. Missed my first lecture, got to Indo 15 minutes late, realised I hadn't done the reading or the translation I was supposed, was generally spaced out. I was in such a shitty mood by that point. After that I had a 4-hour break so my thoughts were basically 'I should have just rolled over and gone back to sleep'.
It did improve, eventually. I'm feeling quite good now after my shift at work. I have 2 new violin students who just got violins this week, and they're both getting a decent sound already, which is pretty much unheard of. <3

Another thing that has made me happy is that this time around I can actually play most of my scales straight away. *grins* Progress!!

I think that's all I have to say tonight, just a quick update before I go off to do some more work.

   I've tried to post a few times over the last couple of days, but they didn't seem to flow very well so I kept giving up. I hope this one is better!

Uni life is amazing sometimes )

I have two more videos for you now. I am utterly addicted to this song. Their voices blend so well together, and I'm really starting to get into Charlene Kaye's music. To give you an idea, I had this song on repeat basically all of yesterday. Which is kind of huge for me...

Lastly, this is a song I adore by Sara Bareilles. She's just released this video for it, and it's so cute. I love that it's so many random people, and that Josh Groban and Ben Folds are in it. WIN WIN WIN!


On that note, I am going to collapse into bed. I made this post twice, because lj is full of fail sometimes.

Glee is taking over my life, and I don't really mind... )

Yep, that's pretty much all I did today. Ironed, watched Glee, and then went to see a preview/open rehearsal of snuggle_monster's play (which I am also going to tomorrow, and following them on a trip to Adelaide - I feel like a groupie/stalker-person). It was pretty funny, if a little disjointed because they forgot bits. Before that I got dinner with Ame and we had a much needed catch-up session - and then met up with H. Who if you're reading this, I do not appreciate the comment you made saying I am a blog-whore. Although that was highly amusing.

That's all, folks!
Now I'm going to go back to watching 'Me and My Dick'. Which is utterly hilarious.

So I've been away at the beach for the past 5 days with [livejournal.com profile] snuggle_monster , not that we swam at all - seriously Melbourne, where is Summer?!
A break, Glee, and awesome people )
rdm_ation: (Default)
 I just got home from a lovely day, and should be sleeping but oh well.

I actually woke up early, and procrastinated packing for the trip I head off on tomorrow, then actually got around to packing, and then realised I was meant to leave to meet snuggle_monster 5 minutes previously and wasn't quite ready. Fail. Didn't matter though, we ended up there at roughly the same time. It was nice to have a proper conversation with her - we've seen each other quite a bit lately, but always to do something specific, and always in bigger groups of people.

Then it was off to another shift at my new job which was mostly good. All piano students today, most were really sweet. Except one obnoxious old guy who would not listen to a word I said, and had a totally ridiculous attitude to what he was learning. >_> It bugged me. However, he was followed by a really sweet 12-year-old (who looked 15, say what? she was asian. they normally look younger than they are.) whose first move was to start playing 'Wedding Dress' by Taeyang. Beautifully, too. Me: *melts*

As it turns out I'll have 2 full shifts, which is great.

After that I raced back to this old theatre near the city that does special screenings of movies, to see two Studio Ghibli films - Howl's Moving Castle and Ponyo with [livejournal.com profile] snuggle_monster , [livejournal.com profile] thalia03  and [livejournal.com profile] pebblegosling . The former I was a bit lost throughout, considering I missed the start and apparently it doesn't make much sense unless you've read the book, so hopefully I can borrow it soon. Ponyo was absolutely adorable. Only way to describe it. SO CUTE. SO MUCH CUTE. 


Seriously, why so adorable?!

I've decided that us four need to hang out more often. It seems to end up in giggle-fests, weird voices, pebblegosling and I freaking the other two out with old high school in-jokes and apparently being told to 'move along' by security guys. Tehehe.
Also, on a vaguely related note: PEBBLEGOSLING I AM GOING TO MISS YOU SO FREAKING MUCH WHEN YOU GO TO JAPAN. Ahem.

Oh! I haven't posted since that party. I actually had a really really good time, surprisingly considering how exhausted I was, and that I wasn't going to know many people. I ended up finding another muso from my uni and ended up chatting for a good part of the night, as well as a few other people. It was great fun.

And now I bid you all farewell for a few days, as I am headed away with a few friends from school. I've nearly finished packing, and should sleep before the 3 and a half hour drive tomorrow.

I can feel it already, this is going to be a scatterbrained entry.

A lot and nothing seems to have happened since I last posted, which is a weird feeling. I worked out that every single day this week I've gone out twice, and this will continue until I go away for a few days next week. I'm pretty tired right now, but my brain is still racing.

Of in-jokes, craziness, and being 'saaahh indie' )

I GOT IT!
I got the job! I am so so so happy and excited right now - I mean, this is what I want to do with my life. I can actually make money off my violin. Okay, so it's not perfect. Yet. The guy who runs the music school is this sweet older Indonesian man (I will never get over how happy Indonesians get when they hear you speak even a bit of their language) and he told me on the spot that he wanted to offer me the position, starting this week. Only problem is, he wants me to do Saturdays. Which coincides with my shift at the pharmacy - so I'll have to reshuffle it. At least he did say that if I do a couple of weeks and speak to the parents, I might be able to change days. He was also really pleased to hear I can also teach piano - so I may end up with another day as well. I really want to do this, so off to speak to Dad I go...

This is absolutely adorable. I love how the cast is such a little family. Just, naww.


"But mostly importantly [a thank you] to all the amazing kids that watch our show and that our show celebrates and are' constantly told 'no' [by] people and environments and bullies at school, that they can't be who they are or can't have what they want because of who they are, well, screw that, kids."

 So, it's now Tuesday. I have had two consecutive sleep ins and as such feeling much more energetic now. I just have to motivate myself to get this list of things done today. It's about 14 items long... Help meeee XD

 Oh Glee, I doubt your choice in music occasionally but sometimes you get it so so so right.

Warning: epic Glee flail )

I hope you skipped all of that if you aren't a Glee fan =P
I really don't have much else to report, except that I've been working pretty much every day - and twice they called and woke me up. First time was at 10am on Sunday so not too early, but the second was Monday at 8:30 after I'd gone to bed at 3am, and was just drifting off after taking Mum to the station. I wasn't terribly with it...
And then I worked all day today, and am working 5 or so hours tomorrow. I tell you what, I do like my job, but standard 8 hour days like that remind me that music is what I want to do. So much more fun XD

Speaking of, I still don't have any of the music for The Sound of Music. Really hope I don't have to go in cold.... first impressions are worth so much. 
I've also spent my time reading the second of Robin Hobb's Assassin trilogy, which is great. I love good fantasy books. =D
(Yep, that was why I was up so late)

Oh! I went back to my old school yesterday for an orchestra rehearsal (I'm playing in the end of year presentation night with other 'old grammarians'). I felt so old and out of the loop. LOL Then pebblegosling and I chilled here for a bit and ate Calippos and chocolate. Which more than fixed an off morning.
I think that's more than enough rambling for me now.
