dmjewelle: (Epic)
I was at work on Sunday, and used downtime to check Twitter. Seeing Benedict Cumberbatch at the F1 Grand Prix at Sepang just gave me so much turmoil (especially since he was leaving for Adelaide on Monday), [livejournal.com profile] yuncyn finally popped a question:

"If you want to stake out his hotel, I'm game."

We roped in [livejournal.com profile] axtar and [livejournal.com profile] futomimii and after picking them up around 9PM, the game was ON.

Epicry begins here! )

So today I went to the MPO to watch the Tchaikovsky Spectacular with [livejournal.com profile] gan_sakura and Lishen.

The conductor was this apparently really awesome Japanese guy who is also REALLY short. I'd estimate him to be about 5 feet since he barely reached the shoulders of the first violinist and -that- guy was your average white guy. That's not all, no - the conductor wore a LEATHER tuxedo with its collar turned up.

He was a 5-foot midget leather-wearing BANCHO. If that's not amazing enough for you, I don't know what is.

Oh, and he also conducted the entire night without a score. It's pretty impressive to have the entire score in your head and know it so well you can conduct without even looking at it. Never mind the conductor bar reached his shoulders, he was a pretty good conductor. Very expressive - at the beginning of the concert it seemed his nose was twitching a lot. Then the twitching went to his mouth and...well.

Throughout the whole concerto he seemed to be more concerned about the pianist than everything else. Have you seen a conductor draping himself over a grand piano? Well now I have!

At the end of the concerto the pianist gave an encore and this guy just SAT DOWN at the podium like a little kid (the guy's 50) and listened to her play Liszt's La Campanella (thank you Youtube!).

At the end of the CONCERT, he got every section to stand up which was funny because here's a midget bancho weaving through the orchestra telling them to stand up, and when he received the customary bouquet he took out all the (I think it's plastic) flowers and gave to some of the female players. Then he took 2 stalks of roses for himself, gave the entire remainder (there were only the LEAVES left) to one of the female violinists, kept a stalk for himself and THREW the OTHER STALK into the audience where a MAN caught it. Then everyone cheered and the guy waved the rose and shouted "W00T!". XD

Most awesome conductor ever I kid you not; I think if he was conducting again I'd just plunk money to watch HIM. Have you seen a conductor look like he's giving the finger to his orchestra?

Thought so.

That's all well and good but uh...the music? )

- Make a post (public, friendslocked, filtered...whatever you're comfortable with) to your LJ. The post should contain your list of 10 holiday wishes. The wishes can be anything at all, from simple and fun ("I'd love a Hermione icon that's just for me") to medium ("I wish for _____ on DVD") to really big ("All I want for Christmas is a new car/computer/house/TV.") The important thing is, make sure these wishes are things you really, truly want.

- If you wish for real possible things, make sure you include some sort of contact info in your post, whether it's your address or just your email address where Santa (or one of his elves) could get in touch with you.

- Also, make sure you post some version of these guidelines in your LJ so that the holiday joy will spread.

- Surf around your friendslist (or friendsfriends, or just random journals) to see who has posted their list. And now here's the important part:

- If you see a wish you can grant, and it's in your heart to do so, make someone's wish come true. Sometimes someone's trash is another's treasure, and if you have a leather jacket you don't want or a gift certificate you won't use--or even know where you could get someone's dream purebred Basset Hound for free--do it.

You needn't spend money on these wishes unless you want to. The point isn't to put people out, it's to provide everyone a chance to be someone else's holiday elf--to spread the joy. Gifts can be made anonymously or not--it's your call.

There are no rules with this project, no guarantees, and no strings attached. Just...wish, and it might come true. Give, and you might receive. And you'll have the joy of knowing you made someone's holiday special.


The PS3 didn't make the cut because what the hell am I gonna play on it, Genji 2? Oh please. )
