The sound of butterflies and crocodiles

16/01/2012

Have you read Rachael King’s The Sound of Butterflies? It’s very good. So is Helen Lehndorf’s beautiful collection of poetry, The Comforter. And if you want a taste of what kind of music Mariani is making, here’s the link to her album of children’s music on Bandcamp. I had a look on Canta Conmigo’s facebook page and I realise she looks nothing like how I’ve drawn. I really have to take a drawing class… it’s been 16 years since my last one.

    Thanks for the link to the music — sounds great on a cold Chicagoland morning…

    I had a similar ‘blast from the past’ experience in Taranaki. At the museum there is an exhibition about Ngati Rununga, my ex’s iwi. As I walked around the exhibition, there were photographs of his relatives everywhere, and suddenly I could hear his voice and turned the corner and there was a video of him being interviewed. It was surreal!

    Also, the best thing about our Road Slappers band was it’s name – The Live Kennedys! 🙂

    Oh how I loved rocking the cow-bell!

    It is very annoying how incredibly good Mariani looks eh! I remember meeting you with Miguel and being so in awe. You were so alternative and cool. I was stuck in a green uniform at St Peter’s dreaming of escaping suicide city. For the record I still think you are cool. And I have the CD.

    “I was a natural at woodwind instruments” – cracked me up.
