Nigel Kennedy wasn't bad

Well, to be honest i went for the concert not expecting too much so it was better than I expected.

It was good that he didn't only play 4 seasons doing a couple of his own compositions and a bach piece. He just zipped through 4 seasons without talking too much which I thought was refreshing from his standard verbal dieorrea. Not to mention the football kicking thing made it more a cheap act. He should find alternating acts.

On a whole, I thought the concert reminded me too much of the pet shop boys gig due to a oldish woman bouncer that flashed her torchlight at me when i was trying to get a picture of the hall with my lousy no flash phone. And Nigel wasn't even playing! In front of me people were using flash cameras and they wouldn't even getting hauled off.

So Nigel if you ever read this. I thought your playing was very expressive and playing more jazz other than strangers in the night would have been better, but I'll blame the QLD orchestra for that.

Well, I guess it has to happen at some point. the home automation raspberry pi has died. Much to do with the stupid Strontium mini SD card. ...
