A singer whose only purpose is to sing

Watching the stunning Italian mini-series The Best of Youth right now, and its quite a moving piece despite its sprawling length, as it follows the lives of two brothers from the 60s until now. Amongst the many songs it uses includes the song Faustus Leali - A Chi. When I listened to it, I thought that the singer's only purpose, which his rich falsetto, was to sing. Whatever else about him hardly matters, because I believe he was placed on this earth, so he could sing a song to touch us deeply, and little else he did would matter.

New love

Belle and Sebastian. Have heard tracks here and there but now quite addicted to their stuff. My housemate's a big fan so rubbed off on me.

The snake and the guard

Was walking back from the bus stop and saw a snake in the bushes just outside the condo. Was impossible to tell how big it was because it was mostly hidden. I told the security guard, and he got quite excited, relating how at another condo where he worked, somebody had seen a white python on the bonnet of a car, and that number had won a prize at 4-D. He also told me about how little he earned, and seemed unsure if he should be calling pest control because it was actually good luck to see a snake. Hmm.. in the end, let him sort it out.

A quiet hero

Good start

Well things got off to a good start. An old contact landed me a writing job in Siem Reap as he works for an airline. Thing is I just booked a ticket there yesterday, since I didn't get to go anywhere last month. Either way it's a good way to start off what I hope will be a good year.
