The past few days I have been dying to find out more about the following things:
1) David Bowie, apparently narrated a version of Peter & The Wolf, the audio includes full score and story… awesome! I must cop!
2) When I was kid I was enrolled in a school that had an AMAZING arts program. I was maybe 8 years old when I heard/saw my first opera. It was in Japanese and the story was about a japanese princess that beheaded her many suitors until she finds the one she loves, and I cannot remember the name of it! The Ice Princes? Ice Queen? It is really bothering me and I have been scouring the net for the past few days to find it. Boo. I loved it.
3) Same program, one of the first lessons taught was to SEE music. Or teacher put us in a dimly lit classroom, handed us paper and pen and then played SOMETHING, we were instructed to close our eyes and draw what we saw. It was the BEST lesson ever! In my brain I can remember the classroom setting, the Manila paper I drew on, even what I drew but I cannot remember what was being played. I have it in my head but I sound retarded trying to communicate. Another thing I’ve been looking for on the web; its not anything Fantasia, Nutcracker, Bach, Beethoven that I’ve been listening to over the past few days and it’s driving me nuts! Ugh!
4) I want a new tattoo. Hear me out, this is so cool! I want to get Daniel’s John Hancock… like literally sign a piece of paper and then have it retraced on my skin. Neat huh? I was thinking down my side. Kat Von D had Nikki Sixx write her a love letter on then tattooed on her shoulder and it is beautiful! The work is amazing. I want to find an artist that will be able to have the detail and steady hand to do something like this. Again, I can’t find a damn picture of Kat’s tattoo to convey a visual to what I’m rambling about! I was thinking for an anniversary…
I must be really bored without a job, if these are things I am currently obsessing about. 🙂
