    I'm not getting any sound from the chorus? is there something wrong with my computer?

    I'm having so much existential angst right now. I knew it would happen after I started watching this film in Russian about Rimsky-Korsakov (that sentimental one made in USSR days) that to my delight focused on Sadko and Snow Maiden as his true masterpieces. In one scene I instantly wanted to yell "My brothers!!" when Stasov was talking about all the great students of RK and showing photographs. I already had trouble falling asleep from that because they (as in THEY) were characters in this freakin film like it was no big deal lol. Then I woke up early and couldn't go back to sleep because Russians in my memory, and then Antar came on radio. Typing this up while listening. Because RUSSIANS. Gotta finish that film today...

    My brothers!! Why must time keep us apart?

    I don't think I have any sensitivities, except when I hit my thumb with a hammer.

    Moving from my cosy apt. to a house. Don't wanna move but long story short—we're doing someone a favor. Don't know why everyone wants a house in this country, it's like a status thing or something.

    Good for you for sticking to your contract. I'm glad to hear you can do that. School started for me this week, and I've got more than 200 students, and for that, I get a 5% raise over ten years. I've been discouraging people to get into teaching here, I haven't taken a student teacher for a few years now. I generally like my job, the students are pretty good. And I get good support from my administration, but not from the ministry of education, which has been out to undermine teachers for many years. And now today, I hear that the new curriculum from the ministry will drop the course I've developed and taught for the past 16 years.

    I know exactly where that shop is, lots of new and used classical CDs and vinyl. I'm there so often, they know me by name.

    In exactly 4 hours I'll be up on stage in the Melbourne Recital Centre playing my Sinfonia Concertante piece with the gang.

    Uhhhhh for some reason I can't edit the above post. Oh well.

    image.jpgimage.jpg

    There has been a much better article in the other mainstream newspaper in Melbourne about this, which is pretty cool. Plus a short feature on talk radio on Monday where I talked about the piece. It was soooo bizarre having people who haven't spoken to me for ages text me/email me or tell me via another medium about hearing me on the radio or reading the article in the paper. I don't think I'll ever get used to that and I hope it won't happen in such a weird way ever again.

    I had an interesting encounter coming home from a soundcheck. Trams weren't operating for another half an hour (industrial reasons) but there were public transport people to help out anyone who needed to get somewhere by answering their questions at tram stops. I was walking towards one of these people—a white male—but a woman of a South or a South East Asian and non-English speaking background had proceeded to ask him a question. My intention was to wait until he had answered her, but instead he chose to turn to me and ask what I needed help with.

    Man: (to me, interrupting the woman) is there anything I can help you with?
    Me: oh, she can go first.
    Man: No, she was interrupting you.
    Me: Sorry, but she was talking to you just before. You're interrupting her. Let her go first.
    Man: (looks extremely uncomfortable and avoids any further argument and lets the woman continue)

    I don't understand why people in the public service just can't show any courtesy to someone in need of help. I was in no rush and I knew the area fairly well. I overheard her saying that she hadn't been here for very long and needed help finding the right bus route. What's wrong with people?

    Other news: saw composer Chris Dench this afternoon and he gave me a recording of the world premiere of his epic Piano Sonata! Unfortunately he will not be coming to tonight's concert because of a very important other celebration he needs to attend and get drunk at.
