One of the perks of cutting your hair yourself is that you can stop at various points to experiment with what it would look like if you did something extravagant. The scissors I had couldn’t stand the test of my hair, so I ended up just buzzing all of it, meaning that the top had to end up shorter than I was intending at first (it’ll probably be back in no time though). I feel like most of the pictures just illustrate how my hair is trying to take over the world basically.
Prelude in C-Sharp minor Op.3 No.2 - Sergei Rachmaninov
And a throwback to 2010 because this piece is currently in way to rusty of a shape for me to record a more recent video of myself playing it heh. But this one was in a recital so different kind of I setting.
Arabesque No. 1 - Claude Debussy
So it’s been a while since I’ve actually substantially practiced piano, like a few years to be honest. However, over the past few days I’ve been practicing a decent amount, with the goal of getting at the very least this piece back into working shape instead of the page or so I’ve held onto in my memory with the rest of it totally out of my reach. So this one part motivation for myself to continue working on it, and the other part to show people who most of which have never heard me play piano before.
It also features two things that I’m still working on for myself—that is, how I look in profile and my posture (the effects of growing up tall unfortunately heh). But I feel alright about those things in this, so I think it’s definitely progress.
I hope you enjoy! :D
Also a throwback because the photo roll on my laptop’s webcam application had these two pictures that I don’t remember taking in it haha. I should probably cut my hair again sometime soon, because I think that these were probably soon after my last hair cut.
GPOY: New Year’s Eve Outfit Edition
Before I added the jacket it was kind of a red-based theme, because of my association between new year’s, red, and good luck.
GPOY Throwback to March. Fanboying over José having signed my copy of Cruising Utopia.
Best wishes and best of luck. A pleasure meeting you.
And now, today I wrote in his book at the Performance Studies Memorial,
Too soon, but not yet here. Always then and there. It was a pleasure meeting you too. Best wishes and best of luck to you too.
Here’s to carrying our dead with us. Carrying them to the then and there of other worlds, better worlds. Here’s to the dead who are gone, but also not yet here. Here’s to finding them, in the worlds they open up for us, on the paths they light up for us here and now.
RIP José Esteban Muñoz
For the brief bit that I was wearing a costume today.
I must say that I was really excited to be a penguin though.
Happy Halloween, everyone! :D
