Today I Lived

Yesterday was a little bit of a fun day for me, despite the fact that it's usually one of my least favorite days of the week (Friday).
I woke up to the glad tidings of Arakawa and gold for Japan. HURRAH! Sasuga, nippon! We watched the reruns tonight, everyone in Steve and Rick's room after we finished Mito Komon, and I gave a running commentary on things ranging from costume design to skater psychology. Is it just me or does Fumie Suguri always look really sad? Even when she's happy? How does anyone get along with her if they cant tell what she's thinking?
"Honey, I brought you flowers! Honey...are you happy?"
"Yes, Satoshi, I'm happy."
"Okay good. Just checking."
Anyway enough of that. She's pretty. They all are. It's ironic to me, though, how the Japanese figure skaters are above average height for Japanese--because skaters are generally supposed to be short. Well whatever.
They recorded the Expo before we went on outreach today. YEEEEAH!
And I get this comment from Jeremy in passing last night. "Florence, I had no idea you were so into Figure skating!"
Yeah I enjoy it, okay. I like artistic expression...especially when it requires talent--and MUSIC! Its all so wonderful.
And Alternative Man is FUN! I like lots of songs! And wow, there's this new female singer on one of Andrew Vee's songs! (I don't know where to find credits for these things, but I "somehow" knew it was an Andrew song.) Nice stuff. And it's good to hear Extraordinary Days on a CD. I talked to Gabe on the phone today and in a tired laugh he told me that there was some mistake with the lead vocal credits somehow having gone to Jesse Pritchard. Wow. I think they fixed it. Hahahahaha...we had a good laugh. It totally sounds like something that would happen to Gabe. Funny thing about the song is the credits got changed in the "lyrics by" and "music by" place so many times that they ended up just a little screwed up. Oh well. I don't mind having all the lyrics pinned on me. But I feel terrible that the melody is blamed on Jesse. That was almost entirely my fault. Hahahahahahaha...life's little ironies.
Skipping off to watch some people make love to music on ice...

Yea I was kinda like, "huh?" when I saw the credits. They're on the MO site, you go to the audio section and on the little box on the left corner.
haha, have you heard that, "sex works" song? ahhhh.... too hardcore!!!!

Hahahaha. Yeah well it's alright. Making a stink about credits...its bad publicity. HAHAHAHAHAHAH!!! I suck.
Yeah sex works is funny.
I prefer Oh Pharisee.
And Don't Feel Lost.
And that other Buckle one that's number2...whose name I will never remember.
See? See? Everybody was saying I didn't especially like the Healing because I just didn't like Gavin. Well they're wrong! I like Gavin!!!
And I liked some of the Healing. And if Don't Feel Lost was on it, I would've liked it more.
YAY for family music!

Um...what little person said they knew Gabe's voice and didn't recognize it when they heard it? That's a little funny.
But it doesn't sound EXACTLY like Gabe right now, cause it was recorded about 2 years ago...but if you know his voice it's just too obvious. I don't get it.
Anyway, it's fixed in the songbook and it says Gabe McNair.
