Hmm. I'm not so good tonight. Loosing weight is not easy, and while I did not expect it would be, I did think if i stuck to my diet and watched my intake and did my gym it would make a difference.

It turns out i weigh about 6-7kg more than i thought. I'm trying to watch my diet, but i'm not sure calorie counting is helping much to shift the weight, and the exercise, while it is getting easier, telling me i am getting fitter (some yoga poses are not making me shake any more), and i have to do more to get more of an endorphin rush, i still don't feel i'm getting very far.

There is one area I am though. Which is a good thing. My energy, in terms of reiki, is not falling apart any more - ie, i'm not wanting to cry when i am in yoga. So clearly, it is very good for me. I'm also finding i am more straight afterwards in that my posture is heaps better. its easier to remain standing straight and tall.

I'd... just like the scales to reflect that I'm doing something right.

One little compliment can make you feel amazing. So give me a compliment, anything in the entire world, even that my shoelaces are pretty. Put this in your journal. And once you get some comments, put that entry in a memory or tag and when you are feeling down, just go to that entry and this will remind how great you are.

Don't listen to this if you are sad. Its beautiful, but in context, its the most incredibly sad song.

"So In Love"

At the time Cole Porter wrote the musical that would result in his return to success, after years of mediocre reviews for his music and plays, his wife and muse, Linda Lee Porter was dying of cancer.

"Kiss Me Kate" was one of his most successful musicals, and his professional future hung on this play, and yet, on opening night, it was the first time Linda was too ill to attend the premier with him, and not long after she died.

This is her song, and one of his greatest acheivements creatively, at a time when that thing that gave him such joy and creativity in his life was passing from it.

While the words are beautiful, its the melody under it that gets me - it displays the desperation and emotion of what he is loosing.

I can't listen to this without crying.

Please please please watch these.

Two weeks ago the Aust version of Dancing with the Stars came to an end. As a bunch Aussies know, an actress named Bridie Carter won.

Watch these. These are the two routines she and her partner Craig did for the Grand Final. Incidentally, this one, the Jungle Samba, was one they also did for their Samba in week 7. I watched it and thought it was the most shit hot thing i'd ever seen, and they were so sexy together.

But then I saw the freestyle. And it was so moving I can't believe thse two did not fall in love or develop some beautiful bond to manage this.

For those who don't know, the celebrities on the show are novice dancers, or have never danced prior to being approached to do the show.

I'm not sure how many of my friends will like her. I quite like a bunch of her songs, but not all.

This one tho, is beautiful. Listen to the words.

This song reminds me of my childhood. My mother had an album of her live, and used to play it. This song has the feeling and ... scent, if you like, of my old house, the acoustics.

From the Battlestar Galactica season 3 soundtrack. Fantastic! Its the end of the episode "Crossroads, part 2", the season finale, and absolutely makes IT!

Yes yes I know, he's dreadful. But this piece of music weeps and I wish I could play anything like this.

Today's song.

The opening line says it all for me emotionally.

That said, it is one of my favorite songs, by one of my favorite artists.

bast_believer: (Me)
Favorite film.

I have it on dvd....

bast_believer: (Me)
A song a day.

So, begining today, two of my favorite songs. Here is one.

This because I still think this is the best film clips and songs written for a film in my lifetime.
