now here’s a joke: i’m trying to learn how to play ukulele (v brought her ukulele and mandolin to our place yesterday).  i can’t play any instrument at all, except a tiny bit of harmonica, even though it has always been a dream of mine to know how to play even one - unfortunately my parents never took me to lessons even though learning the piano was a huge dream of mine when i was a kid. later i realised i don’t have any musical gifts at all, and because of my total lack of music education  i know nothing about chords - i don’t know what they are supposed to sound like and i can’t name any. now i’m playing this small thing with my big manly hands all smushy and singing van morrison’s brown eyed girl with my ridiculous crow voice. yay, check out this rock star !

i guess we’re moving in together in a week

so… that escalated quickly
(not really, though, we’ve known about this for months but suddenly i’m like ME GONNA BE WIFE)

we finally got to see only lovers left alive at cinema with v on friday, and we both loved it. as we’re both fans of jarmusch and dig vampire movies, we had great expectations, but it still managed to blow us away. is only lovers left alive a vampire movie? yes, it is, there is no denying that - but in a very special way. there is not a scary second in the movie, nor is it gothic in anne rice-isque way. the blood is drunk from a small glasses like the finest of wine, enjoyed and needed like the purest of heroin, and getting it takes the characters to comical measures - but like the best vampire fiction, the story is about living forever and coping with staying unchanged when the world changes around you with full speed. only lovers left alive is funny and it’s melancholic, it’s beautiful and there’s an enviromental message clearly to be seen behind it, but in the end it’s about the joy of living, and of course, love. in tangier or in detroit, from the 16th century to the new millenia, two people who have seen everything still surprise each other, understand each other, teach each other new things, take every chance to show affection, and dance and laugh together like a couple of kids to a 70s soul hit in their living room.
