Be Careful What You Wish For, and TUNES

Tuesday, November 3, 2009
I'm currently finding myself in a position where I've gotten exactly what I wanted, and I'm unhappy with the results. That's all I'm going to say about that here, other than to ask your indulgence for any crabbiness that may result from my dashed expectations.

In other news, The Smart Family will be making our annual pilgrimage to the Pepsi Center for the Trans-Siberian Orchestra's holiday concert this evening. This year we'll be taking the Incomparable Anne™ with us, as she's never seen the show, and we thought she'd enjoy it. Here's this year's promo to whet your appetite. If you get a chance to go, then GO. Really. You won't be sorry.

John, I'm taking Wednesday off, and I have determined to come in to work on Thursday with a renewed sense of purpose and a better attitude.

Yeah. Wish me luck on that.

I am SOOOO jealous.

If I had money, tonight I'd be at the London Symphony’s performance of The Music of Star Wars, complete with the movie excerpts projected on high def screens to match what’s being played.

Sigh.

Never saw TSO, but I've been a fan of one of their vocalists from way back... I've heard nothing but good things about them.

Janiece said...

nzforme, the show was awesome, as usual. They changed the show up a bit, and included songs from their new CD Night Castle.

I bought Night Castle off of iTunes as soon as I got home from the concert. Best rendition of "In the Hall of the Mountain King" ever, in my opinion. Though you know, I think it could have totally used more fire.

Janiece said...

Rachael, me, too.

And hmm...fire!

The fire was super fun, but I could have used less blinding strobe lights (just the white ones, thank goodness). Other than that, it was awesome. I especially loved the laser show (sometimes it felt like being inside the movie Tron) and their rendition of Carmina Burana, O Fortuna (one of my favorites). I can see why you like it so much, Janiece -- all the talented guys with long hair. ;) Thank you for inviting me along!

(And I wish I had known about the other thing beforehand so I could ask you about it. :/ Next time.)
