"All I can say is that the Velvet Underground is great,
And I'm sitting watching puddles gather rain,
And all I can do is just pour some tea for two,
And maybe even speak my point of view,
But it's not sane, no - It's not sane..."
- Dave Matthews Band, No RainYou know there's something wrong when the only green you see is on your computer screen...
Finally went out and saw the sky today... cool
. Been holed up in my room for the past couple of days like a crazy person. If there's one thing i discovered over the past few days, it's that music from movie soundtracks
background music when you're working late through the night. I used to listen to jazz but i think i've listened to my cds so much that i now get distracted by jazz. So by a fluke accident, i started playing movie soundtrack music instead.. and it worked!! Kinda puts me in an artsyfartsy mood
too - always a good thing when you're stuck in the middle of doing your design work.
Some OST's i've been listening to:
- The Constant Gardener (Alberto Iglesias) - beautifully lyrical music that's just so so so sad... one of the better soundtrack albums i've heard so far*sniff*
- Memoirs of a Geisha (John Williams) - Evokes daydreams of misty Japanese mornings with dew heavy in the air, paper lanterns blowing in the breeze and fresh garden smells... *ahhh*
- Crash (Mark Isham, Bird York, Stereophonics) - The stoner blend. It's a 'walking down the street with my headphones on, my hands in my pockets and my hoodie up' kinda album :)
Needless to say, this pic is something like what i imagined when listening to 'A New Name..A New Life' from OST - Memoirs of a Geisha.
*Take a deep breath, and float away into the rising sun...*
There's this amazingly cheap way to simulate a softening filter effect when you don't have one...just fog up your camera lens *hee* - happened by accident but i liked the effect so i didn't wipe the lens :)
