Muchly liking this broadband malarkey!! [Aug. 5th, 2004|01:23 am]

Am up at my parent's house killing time before I go to work at 2am...

Had such shitty sleep yesterday (Wednesday) that I slept through till 5pm (although I woke briefly at 2:30). Miss Chapple in the flat upstairs set off the house fire alarm at 8:30am in the morning when I was only just falling asleep...then the middle flat occupants went crunching past my window at 9am on their way to work...then the kids next door (it being the summer holidays) were screaming and shouting all afternoon in the backgarden.

Went up to my parent's house at 6pm - then went to see 'Miss Saigon' at the theatre for my father's birthday treat. God, it was good!!

The staging was awesome...the 3d cgi of the helicopter was SOO good...the video stuff was brilliant - done by Gerald Scarfe: the same bloke that did 'The Wall', Disney's 'Hercules' and the start of 'Yes, Minister' and stuff...animation in a similar style to Tenacious D's video with the devil and the woman (forget the song name). Not sure my parents approved entirely though - and the script had been 'modernised' with a LOT of the F-word in the opening scenes lol!!

Musically it was damn good too...couldn't fault anyone's performance. The only thing that could have been a bit better was the lighting - if only they'd raised the levels a couple of notches...was very dark in places!

Got back here 'round elevenish, and I'm waiting for a taxi to work now, whilst listening to my Launchcast station...Oh the luxury of broadband...

I've not listened to it in a while and I must say the playlist so far has been impeccable!!:

One of my older brothers went to see that Miss Saigon when it was on in Bristol. He is one of those people who thinks the theatre isn't really for people like him. He came out glowing, he was blown away by it. Even though it is a lavish production and not fully representitive of most theatre, he had his impression of what theatres do changed. I don't think he's been back since though - he prefers the rugby.

Broadband is indeed great, but a bit too great sometimes. Broadband is currently pumelling my desire to read proper books, I need to intervene. Goodnight.

It was absolutely superb!! Shame to switch back to Rugby...


(incidentally, what on earth were you doing still awake at that ungodly hour? At least I have an excuse/work lolol)

I'm off to bed. It's nearly 7am and I'm shattered:/

Goodnight to you too:)

Ah well I did see you on, was going to say hello and other stuff, but thought you were ill, as you usually start at 10pm. I'm usually up until gone 2am most nights, best time of the day.

"Fuck her gently" is the Tenacious D song in question, I believe :) *mwah!*

That's the one... I was trying to explain to my youngest sister's boyfriend, Steve, that I thought it was like the video for that song...only we were stood in front of my mother, and, whilst my father LOVED it (especially the dancing girls as he told us), I'm not sure she entirely appreciated the bit with the Moulin Rouge manager fucking dollars and the Statue of Liberty becoming a pin-up/barbie/burlesque character lolol!!
