2003年6月24日 星期二Got the latest album from Sigur Ros when I was in the city during last weekend. It was actually a gift for my friend in M'sia, as she requested something *special* after acknowledging nothing specific she really deserved from Aus. I mean pop music albums.
Ok, I got her this, and I didn't even know who the hell is Sigur Ros initially, frankly.
I was just attracted by the cover of album, pretty outstanding design - tranparency and monochrome.
And I found something interesting.
There are no lyrics, songs titles and even album title provided by this album.
And i was irrefutably impressed when i started to play the album. I was overwhelmed. I know they are classified as alternative band, but still surprised by their wild imagination bout producing music. Due to my poor english, haha, i quoted some reviews from the website corresponding to the Icelandic band's latest album, which was given name "()" due to anonymous......
"......With singer Jon Birgisson bowing his guitar to replicate the ethereal tones of reverent dolphins, Sigur Ros revels in cathedral like intensity. At once like a giant Godzilla falling in slow motion or gentle deer peering at you through the forest, () is beautiful, if strange. Some songs drift like hot air balloons with single note keys and galvanic drums, others nearly rock out with smashing guitars......" (Micallef, 2002)
"......The relentlessly funereal tempos, the elegant arrangements, and the high-pitched warbling/cooing remain in abundance......The sudden stratospheric crescendos resorted to previously are smoothed out, riding subtle gradients that allow for somber, elongated passages of drones and minimal instrumental interplay......None of these eight songs deserve to be left on the cutting-room floor." (Kellman, 2002)
I watched one of their MTV of their previous work, Vidrar Vel Til Loftarasa, pretty eerie, but amusing.

手指復原的情況看起來很樂觀。2天前因為睡遲了而趕著為第二天考試而無法作飯的室友準備晚餐時﹐因為菜刀下的洋蔥靈活的運用其圓滾的身型而忽然僥倖"滾開"﹐結果我的手指成功的犧牲者 -- 左手的手指和中指右側邊頓時烙下蠻深的傷痕﹐血毫不猶豫的汩汩留出。當時我只來得及丟下一句"shit!"﹐能夠作的只有讓手指接受水龍頭凶猛的洗禮。當時想的是這把菜刀很利﹐不知道手指能不能夠大難不死。其實想太多了﹐傷口很深﹐但終究還是在10分鐘後停止流出紅色的淚﹐而作繭自縛的結痂。
今天的手指吃好睡好﹐復原情況比我想象中的好。好好好。親愛的手指﹐大難不死﹐必有後福。說不定手指能更靈活的勝任Chopin的Nocturne Nº.2 in Eb, Op. 9 Nº.2呢。

2003年6月15日 星期日我還在沉迷于一切關於Environmental Studies的湮遠神話。神話的角色不外乎是植物啊動物啊山水啊鴨嘴獸啊大陸漂移學說啊Rhizobium的任勞任怨啊succession的自我擴張啊Homo Sapien自我冠冕智慧最高的生物啊什麼的。
以馬來西亞時間計算﹐在明天正式淹沒今天之前﹐祝父親節快樂 : )

2003年6月13日 星期五在digitalblasphemy.com發現這張3D繪製圖﹐有蠻深的感覺。其中的訊息"The Struggle For Life"﹐意即為生命的掙扎。
(其實還是有點怕怕 : )
The Struggle For Life.

昨天傍晚從2小事午睡悠悠轉醒後﹐心情糟糕得很。以下為當時我的記述﹐但當時blogger網站暫時不提供任何服務﹐所以無法將當時的心情新鮮的和盤托出﹐剩下的只有讓今天的我把昨天的自己當一則笑話來欣賞 : )

2003年6月2日 星期一昨天晚上終于風塵仆仆從M市回到恬靜的丘吉爾。晚上冷得很﹐昨天是冬天正式宣告稱霸澳洲的第一天。回來的時候累得要命﹐卻還是磨到凌晨三點多才一頭栽入睡床中﹐狠狠的睡到今天下午三點。有些慶幸早上沒課﹐雖然自己睡醒時還是有些臭臉。時間趁我們不省人事的時候躡手躡腳的溜走並不是一件好事﹐尤其是我還有星期三就要交上的scuplture project﹐依然平面的停留在我的藍圖上。oh shit。這3天的M市之旅圓滿的結束﹐我和朋友們都很愉快﹐可悲的retail therapy﹐哈哈。sigh﹐哈什麼﹐下星期開始和考場親密接觸﹐想到這裡頭殼開始發霉了﹐和我眉宇之間皺起的紋路之間。
