Like a Barbarian Warlord in a River

There was a pretty ferocious storm a couple days ago in Hong Kong that damaged some of the infrastructure up on Mount Davis. The internet was down due to a lightning strike and water went off for a while. That's fine, yesterday I went to down to HK Island and worked from Pacific Coffee. I had to hurry to grab the shuttle down the mountain and didn't get my morning walk/run in, so I went around 11PM when I came back until I found a well lit place to jog back and forth on the mountain, and I came back at midnight.

I'm sweaty, exhausted, and I think - oh, I hope the water's back on... I should've checked...

I went to the shower, turned the nob, and... the water started. Good.

But no hot water for some reason. And it was quite cold.

At first I flinch and tense up a little bit as I step into the water, and then I think - why should I flinch? Mind over matter. This will be cold,. and I'll enjoy it anyways.

Applause

On Live | Dance | Blog

So, I'm working on a little project revolving around Applause by Lady Gaga. Gaga has always fascinated me, I think it's purely for the fact that she's different, she stands up for the unordinary and encourages people to be and pursue whatever they want, to follow their dreams.

This first time I heard Applause I was immediately hooked and if I'm totally honest, I've played it everyday since..

A majority of people watch and listen to music videos without even clueing on to what the artist wants to portray. With Applause, it's kind of obvious what the song's about. However, rather than being just about a round of applause, I think that Lady Gaga is showing her desperation and dependance on our applause, she's showing the world that she has still got it and is not afraid to go and get it. This idea was backed by her choreographer and artistic director in an interview I've seen.

For my project, I want to take this particular part of the message and adapt her idea slightly, adding my own twist. Much of the choreography is the same, some will be adapted and some brand new material I have created. I'm currently in the process of putting together a group of dancers; hopefully there will be some updates to follow in the near future!
