Here’s my week (or more) in reverse chronological order.
Besides having too many cakes (about six in total) for my birthday last month, the amount of chocolate and sugar I’ve been consuming is almost enough to make me not want to touch cakes and candies ever again. Almost. Above is Sel’s latest effort, Rocky Road Fudge with chocolate, hazelnuts, marshmallows, dried fruits, some biscuits, chocolate… and more chocolate. I think my friends have a secret ploy to fatten me up. I haven’t weighed myself to know, but last I checked, I need some extra 2 kilograms to graduate from my underweight status.
That is Warren Ellis of Dirty Three (Oct 31st, 2006). He looked like Rasputin with a violin and a violent right leg. He spent most of the time facing his back to the audience and played lying down. I like how he looks headless here. Caught some really offbeat people in the crowd that night. This guy, let’s call him Mersing 12, was so high he did air-guitar and air-violin while head-banging in his pyjama pants. He later discovered how cupping his ears on-and-off created another sound effect and quickly shared the good news with his friend. Then they were both making sound effects only audible to themselves. He was the most animated audience I’ve ever seen.
