The World According to Me
Tuesday, 10 May 2005
I'll be waaaaaaaaaaaaaiting for youuuuu.....
Mood:  cool
Now Playing: Celine Dion - To Love You More...
I didn't know this, but apparently Celine's lovely song "To Love You More" was a Number 1 hit in Japan because it was used as the theme to a TV romantic drama here. Go figure...

I'll be waiting for you,
Here inside my heart
I'm the one who wants to love you more...
(Beats chest violently...)

It's really embarrassing, but I used to love this song so much... All the drama! She was wonderful at it...

And now I know why she's always accompanied by a Japanese violinist when she sings it...!

Mood:  sharp
Now Playing: Crazy for You
Swaying room as the music starts
Strangers making the most of the dark
Two by two their bodies become one

I see you through the smoky air
Can't you feel the weight of my stare
You're so close but still a world away
What I'm dying to say, is that

I'm crazy for you
Touch me once and you'll know it's true
I never wanted anyone like this
It's all brand new, you'll feel it in my kiss
I'm crazy for you, crazy for you

Trying hard to control my heart
I walk over to where you are
Eye to eye we need no words at all

Slowly now we begin to move
Every breath I'm deeper into you
Soon we two are standing still in time
If you read my mind, you'll see

I'm crazy for you
Touch me once and you'll know it's true
I never wanted anyone like this
It's all brand new, you'll feel it in my kiss
I'm crazy for you, crazy for you

It's all brand new, I'm crazy for you
And you know it's true
I'm crazy, crazy for you

Bootylicious...
Mood:  chatty
Now Playing: I've Got a Feelin' I'm Fallin'....
Sorry I've been out of touch...

I went to see "Shall We Dance" last Saturday with the lovely T, and I am embarrassed to say that I just loved that film. J-Lo is awesome in it!! Maybe it helped that the company was SO good, but even so. It was a very, very nice evening.

I had also forgotten how good french toast can be - a very pleasant surprise for Sunday brunch!

Monday, I was back in class, and then started writing a novel in the afternoon. (Perhaps I will post the first 500 words here...) I was interrupted by a crazy psychopath who wanted to talk to me about girls and Hitler. Ugh.

It's Golden Week here, with a series of national holidays, so on Wednesday Jim and I made the mistake of going to Kamakura/Enoshima, both of which were obscenely crowded. Nightmare!! Then I had rehearsal for Steel Magnolias, which is shaping up to be just wonderful.

Thursday I was in Azamino to have chats with Paco, which was hilarious, and then Friday I went to see a Noh-opera version of the Amaterasu myth in Ueno. I was invited by Kan and Akio, the producers of the Noh-Opera version of Macbeth I'm kinda involved in, and we had a very good time. Wandering in the rain through the enormous cemetery in Ueno was quite a surreal experience...

And TOMORROW, I'm going to see Ninagawa's Medea! I am so excited, I could lay an egg. Full report shall follow, obviously...

Ciao!

La Mala Educacion
Now Playing: Tina Arena - Burn


Saw La Mala Educacion AGAIN today - a year later, it's still excellent. And I managed to get through it even though it was in Spanish with only Japanese subtitles!

Me incanta las pelliculas de Almodovar, de verdad...

Cropped
Mood:  mischievious
Now Playing: Mr. Vain. Actually!!!


Like the haircut? It's rather butch...

Many thanks to lovely Naoko at Trues Salon, Sengawa (TM) who performed the operation. I love how they cut hair here. It takes all afternoon - you arrive, have a flick through the magazines, pick a style, drink the tea they give you. Then you get a shampoo, then they cut your hair VERY meticulously, and then style it for you. Then they shampoo you again, and give you a massage (head and shoulders...) and then fix up your hair, re-style it and send you on your way. For next to nothing!!

What was particularly gratifying was that Naoko chattered away at me all the way through, and when I didn't understand her questions, she simply asked over and over again until I did. After 1hr 40 mins, we're like, best friends. She told me to come back and not let anyone else cut my hair there, because one of her colleagues drinks. LOL!! Do I bring this out in people??!!

Warring Divas
Now Playing: Old Mariah and Jennifer
I'm sorry - Mariah and J-Lo's feud is pointless. BOTH their new albums are pants. They both have great lead singles, with nothing to follow.

Roll on Madonna's new album. She'll wipe the floor with them.

ALMODOVAR!!
Now Playing: Barra Barra - Strange Arabic rock/pop (wouldn't you know...)
Just having a quick moment for how wonderful Almodovar is. I watched Todo Sobre Mi Madre and Mujeres al borde de un ataque de Nervios yesterday. He rocks my world.

And his new movie, slated for next year, is apparently called "Volver" and is about 3 women who move from rural Spain to Madrid. Cast shall include Penelope Cruz and Chus Lampreave. Hurrah!!

I am falling in love with Louis Vuitton advertising - not so much the product, which is so ubiquitous it's almost common, but the ads are so fab...



I want to dress like that.
