...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:
|comments: Under von Karajan, undoubtedly one of the best Brahms recorders out there.
|comments: *swoons* preoccupations with resurrection and death bother me not at all... rich, dark, swirling music is always a good thing.
|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
|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.
|comments: "And hast thou slain the Jabberwock, my son? O frabjous day! Callooh! Callay!"
|comments: Franny and Zooey... the Catcher in the Rye... need I say more?
|comments: Czech authors I like. Other Czechs: Kafka, Smetana, Janacek...
|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.
