obsessionjason:  pamilya:  THE SITUATION - In Washington , DC , at a Metro Station, on a cold January morning in 2007, this man with a violin played six Bach pieces for about 45 minutes. During that time, approximately 2,000 people went through the station, most of them on their way to work.  After about 3 minutes, a middle-aged man noticed that there was a musician playing. He slowed his pace and stopped for a few seconds, and then he hurried on to meet his schedule. About 4 minutes later: The violinist received his first dollar. A woman threw money in the hat and, without stopping, continued to walk. At 6 minutes: A young man leaned against the wall to listen to him, then looked at his watch and started to walk again. At 10 minutes:A 3-year old boy stopped, but his mother tugged him along hurriedly. The kid stopped to look at the violinist again, but the mother pushed hard and the child continued to walk, turning his head the whole time. This action was repeated by several other children, but every parent - without exception - forced their children to move on quickly.At 45 minutes: The musician played continuously. Only 6 people stopped and listened for a short while. About 20 gave money but continued to walk at their normal pace. The man collected a total of $32.After 1 hour:He finished playing and silence took over. No one noticed and no one applauded. There was no recognition at all.No one knew this, but the violinist was Joshua Bell, one of the greatest musicians in the world. He played one of the most intricate pieces ever written, with a violin worth $3.5 million dollars. Two days before, Joshua Bell sold-out a theater in Boston where the seats averaged $100 each to sit and listen to him play the same music.This is a true story. Joshua Bell, playing incognito in the D.C. Metro Station, was organized by the Washington Post as part of a social experiment about perception, taste and people’s priorities. This experiment raised several questions: *In a common-place environment, at an inappropriate hour, do we perceive beauty? *If so, do we stop to appreciate it? *Do we recognize talent in an unexpected context?One possible conclusion reached from this experiment could be this: If we do not have a moment to stop and listen to one of the best musicians in the world, playing some of the finest music ever written, with one of the most beautiful instruments ever made … How many other things are we missing as we rush through life? click here to see the footage

One of my favourite songs ever!

[2.50] is my favourite moment in this clip 😀

Ive been looking into what the song means, my favourite rumour behind why Karen O wrote this song is this one:

“I heard that the Liars got a chance to go on tour and Angus didn’t let Karen know until shortly before he was set to leave, so they wouldn’t be seeing each other much for a while.

Thus the line, “wait, they don’t love you like I love you,” referring to the fans.”

“MAPS = My Angus Please Stay”

“I had a boyfriend who told me I’d never succeed, never be nominated for a grammy, never have a hit song and that he’d hoped i’d fail … I said to him, “Someday when we’re not together, you won’t be able to order a cup of coffee at the fucking deli without hearing or seeing me” – Lady Gaga

At first I must admit that when Lady Gaga came out with Pokerface and Just Dance, I instantly didn’t like her. I thought what an awful song with such distasteful underlying lyrics, its such a cheap way to get big and famous. Shes trying too hard. And so when everyone was getting into that song and loving it, i really didnt buy it.

But then she came out with Bad Romance and I only heard it on the radio and didnt think much of it, because I still carried the first impressions i made from her right from the start and so I found out Rania just loved her and played and sang the song repeatedly and showed me the music video for Bad Romance…

I finally got it.

I finally understood the hype and why people adore her. That Bad Romance video clip is in a league of its own and Rania is right – the way she carries herself during interviews you can’t help but gain respect for her. She oozes self confidence and it isnt afraid of being a little left of center. In fact, she totally embraces it. She knows what she is doing and she knows what her fans like, she knows what is going to gain attention. I still don’t liek Pokerface and Just Dance but Bad Romance and Telephone has won me over.

Kianies Going Away Party was on Saturday, I dressed up all asian and everything. We had a spring roll fail – they froze together so we were stuck with a pyramid of spring rolls. It was a really good night :). Kianie attacked everyone with her alcohol – and trust me once she has decided shes going to get you drunk – she will – i had to do some saving and take some shots for people that were struggling. I am going to miss her heaps when she goes to China. She BETTER BLOG *coughs*.

Jeanice is finally back!! I am so happy =] We had a big hug of reunitement ^_^ Though I cant wait to see her again when we arent in a sleep deprived state haha.

Hm and theres this boy as well, trust me I would blog more about it, if i wasn’t paranoid though the chances of him reading this is probably zero.

Today I am staying home and listening to the soundtrack of possibly my favourite movie of all time – Across The Universe and watching Disney movies, Anastacia and Lion King eating ice cream 😀

“You have to do everything you possibly can in the studio and be as honest as possible. In the end, it’s you – the three or however many people in the band – who really have to live with it for the rest of your lives. A producer doesn’t have to go on tour and play those songs every night: the band does.”

– Chris Wolstenholme (the bassist of muse)

I was reading that in a muse article with Chris on the band and the new album The Resistance on the train home from uni. I still cant believe I’m going to see Muse live at Sydneys Big Day Out. They are going to be so so epic.
