Saturday August 30, 2008
Today was, as you all know, the day I went to preform at the Ben Navaee Gallery. I met the man himself and he remarked at how early I was (it was only 10 minutes... but I do enjoy my punctuality). I set up and played for 2 hours. There was clapping in the beginning because there were not a lot of people in the gallery, but by 4:30 there was about 35 people in a small space drinking champagne out of little plastic goblets and admiring these paintings. I didn't put out a tip jar or anything, so no money was made. But I did meet a very cool artist named Serge (I'm too lazy to look up his last name right now... it was on the poster). Plus everyone was very impressed with me (I knew I should of printed out business cards). Mr. Navaee told me that he needed performers for Nuit Blanche (an art festival held in TO every year) and he would love it if I performed. I told him I'd think about it. Who knows what I'll be doing then?
After my performance I headed over to Earl's in Square One to meet up for drinks with my co-workers. It was so much fun! Afterwards I hung out with one of the stock workers and we had bubble tea at this randomly packed Korean bubble tea place... it wasn't bad, but I could tell they used powder instead of syrup (sad face). But they had tiny tapioca bubbles instead of the huge ones, which was a bit different. All in all, it was a lovely social event. A few of us are planning on going to Montreal at some point for fun. Maybe for my birthday...
When I got home I felt hyper, so I recorded a video of me performing Blackwinged Bird on the piano and singing. There are two versions: a full proper version and a half version that ends with the light tipping over. I decided to post both of them because... why not? Tried to record another song after and it wasn't working out, so I'm not going to push my luck.
Tomorrow I'm working from 12-6, then I have Monday off (labour day!) and I'm going to be helping a friend for a Frosh event at the U of T in the morning. I'm going to get up early tomorrow so I can apply for a bunch of auditions during the week. Non-stop action.
glad to hear u have lots of fun!

Bubble tea is Korean? :S

No it's not, but this place was run by Koreans.

The video in your module covers up half of this post, and also the comment button. I had to tab over it to get to this page...
