after watching dawn of the dead many of my hypersensitive friends became wary of zombie babies, malls with deranged people in them etc. Then one of them came up with ‘The Shaun of the Dead’ theory. Basically it follows the logic that if one watches the spoof movie before the serious movie it de-scarifies the serious movie. I recommend this theory to anyone who has that problem, although its hard to believe anyone might find dawn of the dead scary, i suppose the whole ‘when hel is full the dead will walk the earth’ is pretty good. Anyway all that aside, ‘Shaun of the dead’ was great and much more a telling of human nature than its counterpart ‘dawn of the dead’ which had far too many 2 dimensional characters.

i’m lucky enough to have access and to have been encouraged in all outlets for music. Having played 3 instruments for about 12 years i kind of reached a plateau. Don’t get me wrong i enjoy playing music immensly but i just don’t think anything compares to composing a good piece of music which is rhapsodic and original in its deployment and development of themes. I always get butterflys when anyone plays my compositions, its like reading out my diary or something. For me a great theme shows all the vulnerability and immense strength of humanity embodied in sound, a theme must fight against the odds and overcome the grief and uncertainty of the harmonies that plague it in its development stage.
