soft indigo keening (it's been a while)

...the centre cannot hold...

It was time for a change. That much I knew. However, I'm not quite sure what I've need of putting in here any more. Filling in my blanks is a matter of mere guesswork, but you're up to it, I suppose. There is much of caprice in me, but at least I'm not asking you to knit me something.

My favorite music:

Berliner Philharmoniker
comments: Under von Karajan, undoubtedly one of the best Brahms recorders out there.
Gustav Mahler
comments: *swoons* preoccupations with resurrection and death bother me not at all... rich, dark, swirling music is always a good thing.
Dmitri Shostakovich
comments: was influenced by Mahler and carried his own burdens under the Soviet regime which give an appealing cast to his music which one is easily drawn into
Benjamin Britten
comments: One of the few really good English composers. The first time I heard his War Requiem I cried. And he almost wrote six cello suites, just like J.S.Bach, but only finished three.
Johann Sebastian Bach
comments: He wrote the original unaccompanied cello suites. Go out and buy some recordings of them if you haven't already.

My favorite movies:

The Princess Bride
comments: I remain convinced that the cut-version book was better, but then again I had the book read to me by my youngest older sister back when she was still a goddess to me. She's been demoted since. Soon she may even be falliable.

My favorite authors:

Jorge Luis Borges
comments: It's a pity I don't read Spanish, or else I would have read him in the original. The translations, however, are some of the best fictions that I've read. I'll get around to his nonfictions someday.
Lewis Carroll
comments: "And hast thou slain the Jabberwock, my son? O frabjous day! Callooh! Callay!"
J.D. Salinger
comments: Franny and Zooey... the Catcher in the Rye... need I say more?
Milan Kundera
comments: Czech authors I like. Other Czechs: Kafka, Smetana, Janacek...
Robert Heinlein
comments: With Ray Bradbury, my favorite SF writer. Stranger in a Strange Land, Job: A Comedy of Justice... Something Wicked This Way Comes... go curl up and read.

update: Still fixing stuff as fast as I can!. As you may have noticed, Diaryland is being renovated, which is still in progress. Bugs are all being fixed. The new design should work on phones much better than the old one, and pages in the members area are being converted to the new look one by one, so they can be tested. Please email help@diaryland.com with any new problems, but things that are already bugs should be fixed soon!
