看《新警察故事》,百无聊赖,未经过任何推敲。anyhow, 故事也不会激起你的一点兴趣,漏洞百出的逻辑结构,肤浅的台词,做作的表演,再加上香港电影特有的“杂耍”,就构成了这样一部完全的kill time的片子,让我对香港新生厌倦。导演还是重新回学院学习吧。

1.给大家简单介绍一种音乐形式:bluegrass;兰草最早是指一支来自美国肯塔基的一支乡村乐队,可能是音乐过于成功或典型,成为了日后乐评家提及乡村音乐的代名词。bluegrass中往往会有最基本的两种要素:a.高亢的和声; b.自由的即兴.
2.听到一个对于sweet的官方解释,这个看似甜美的词,其实在形容一个人的时候,可能是在掩饰他别的方面的不足,比如外表。当我们这样称赞我们的一位朋友: I’ll introduce you a sweet girl, mike,这会让mike觉得this girl is surely have some fallacy in appearance or even ugly.
3. back to back class是一种对于老师来说都会经历的上课形式。那就是连堂课,一节接一节的意思,很繁忙哦

by the way. I was inspired by one sentence, says 如果我们在一本书中看到的仅仅是赞美之词,或是罗列出很多无懈可击的定义时,那么它留给我们的价值就显得微乎其微,而且甚至要我们自己来寻找不适用时的限制。

对一位vacant爵士乐迷的采访,重回午夜蓝调*o*


peggy lee strangers in the night


Strangers in the night, exchanging glances
Wond’ring in the night, what were the chances
We’d be sharing love before the night was through
Something in your eyes was so inviting
Something in your smile was so exciting
Something in my heart told me I must have you

Strangers in the night, two lonely people
We were strangers in the night
Up to the moment when we said our first hello, little did we know
Love was just a glance away, a warm embracing dance away
And ever since that night, we’ve been together
Lovers at first sight, in love forever
It turned out so right for strangers in the night



frank sinatra, fly me to the moon


Fly me to the moon
Let me sing among those stars
Let me see what spring is like
On jupiter and mars

In other words, hold my hand
In other words, baby kiss me

Fill my heart with song
Let me sing for ever more
You are all I long for
All I worship and adore

In other words, please be true
In other words, I love you

Carmen McRae How Long Has This Been Going On?


I could cry salty tears
Where have I been all these years?
Little wow, tell me now
How long has this been goin’ on?

There were chills up my spine
And some thrills I can’t define
Listen sweet, I repeat
How long has this been goin’ on?

Oh, I feel that I could melt
Into heaven I’m hurled
I know how Columbus felt
Finding another world

Kiss me once, then once more
What a dunce I was before
What a break, for heaven’s sake
How long has this been goin’ on?



nat king cole Let’s fall in love


Why shouldn’t we fall in love?
Our hearts are made of it
Let’s take a chance
Why be afraid of it?

Let’s close our eyes
And make our own paradise
Little we know of it
Still we can try
To make a go of it

We might have been meant for each other
To be or not to be, let our hearts discover

Let’s fall in love
Why shouldn’t we fall in love?
Now is the time for it
While we are young
Let’s fall in love

We might have been meant for each other
To be or not to be, let our hearts discover

Let’s fall in love
Why shouldn’t we fall in love?
Now is the time for it
While we are young
Let’s fall in love




mose allison do nothing till you hear from me


Do nothing till you hear from me,
Pay no attention to what’s said.
Why people tear the seams of anyone’s dreams
Is over my head.


Do nothing till you hear from me,
At least consider our romance.
If you should take the words of others you’ve heard,
I haven’t a chance.


True, I’ve been seen with someone new,
But does that mean that I’ve been untrue?
When we’re apart,
The words in my heart
Reveal how I feel about you.


Some kiss may cloud my memories,
And other arms may hold a thrill,
But please, do nothing till you hear it from me–
And you never will.


Some kiss may cloud my memories,
And other arms may hold a thrill,
But please, do nothing till you hear it from me–
And you never will.

billie holiday my man


It cost me a lot
But there’s one thing that I’ve got
It’s my man
It’s my man

Cold or wet
Tired, you bet
All of this I’ll soon forget
With my man

He’s not much on looks
He’s no hero out of books
But I love him
Yes, I love him

Two or three girls
Has he
That he likes as well as me
But I love him

I don’t know why I should
He isn’t true
He beats me, too
What can I do?

Oh, my man, I love him so
He’ll never know
All my life is just despair
But I don’t care
When he takes me in his arms
The world is bright
All right

What’s the difference if I say
I’ll go away
When I know I’ll come back
On my knees someday

For whatever my man is
I’m his forevermore



billie holiday cheek to cheek


Irving Berlin
Heaven, I’m in heaven
And my heart beats so that I can hardly speak
And I seem to find the happiness I seek
When we’re out together dancing cheek to cheek
Heaven, I’m in heaven
And the cares that hung around me through the week
Seem to vanish like a gambler’s lucky streak
When we’re out together dancing cheek to cheek

Oh I love to climb a mountain
And to reach the highest peak
But it doesn’t thrill me half as much
As dancing cheek to cheek
Oh I love to go out fishing
In a river or a creek
But I don’t enjoy it half as much
As dancing cheek to cheek

Dance with me, I want my arms about you
The charm about you
Will carry me through
To heaven, I’m in heaven
And my heart beats so that I can hardly speak
And I seem to find the happiness I seek
When we’re out together dancing cheek to cheek




norah jones come away with me


Come away with me in the night
Come away with me
And I will write you a song

Come away with me on a bus
Come away where they can’t tempt us
With their lies

I want to walk with you
On a cloudy day
In fields where the yellow grass grows
knee-high
So won’t you try to come

Come away with me and we’ll kiss
On a mountaintop
Come away with me
And I’ll never stop loving you

And I want to wake up with the rain
Falling on a tin roof
While I’m safe there in your arms
So all I ask is for you
To come away with me in the night
Come away with me




jimmy scott jealous sky


I was dreaming of the past.
And my heart was beating fast,
I began to lose control,
I began to lose control,

I didn’t mean to hurt you,
I’m sorry that I mad you cry,
I didn’t want to hurt you,
I’m just a jealous guy,

I was feeling insecure,
You night not love me any more,

I was shivering inside,
I was shivering inside,

I was trying to catch your eyes,
Thought that you were trying to hide,
I was swallowing my pain,
I was swallowing my pain.

7th Nov: 宇宙的秋天是什么颜色的?

way out west the fall

lamb darkness

I couldn’t see darkness until now
Only light!
(though sometimes the shadows flickered across my view)
Light!
But darkness, this cold emptiness,
Somehow passed me by
Like a charmed thing I sailed
Slipping through its fingers
Blessed until now
Blessed until now
Only now, only now, only now
And I’m beyond recognition
Gone to some small space in silent stillness
Yet something beats anew
Somewhere
I’m waiting to be reborn
Only this time, only this time, only this time
Born in darkness
None can dim my light
None. Can. Dim. My. Light.

charles webster falling (born on the 24th of july)

i’m falling

yes i’ve tried
you know i’ve tried
to face the truth
every day i harder
without you
what is life?
what is life?
it’s a shade of blue
when i feel alone
i think of you
i’m falling
and i’m calling
i’m falling
can you help because i’m falling
you’re still here
in my mind
and it’s hard to lose
visions of us loving
do you feel it too?

i may describe
deep love for you
but when i feel this heartache
it’s just not true
i’m falling
and i’m calling
i’m falling
can you help because i’m falling

We lose
Yet we want to spare the feelings of those we love
Don’t cry
We’ve all lied
But there is always room for forgiveness my friend

So don’t treat me bad just be glad I am strong
I know where I belong
And soon you will see we are blessed and complete
There’s a place here for you with me

Shine
You’re fine
See I will always have a smile for you my love
And still
We will
Be ok and along the way we’ll learn a thing or two

So don’t treat me bad just be glad I am strong
I know where I belong
And soon you will see we are blessed and complete
There’s a place here for you with me

So don’t treat me bad just be glad I am strong
I know where I belong
And soon you will see we are blessed and complete
There’s a place here for you with me

Don’t treat me bad just be glad I am strong
I know where I belong
So soon you will see we are blessed and complete
There’s a place here for you with me

Don’t treat me bad just be glad I am strong
I know where I belong
And soon you will see we are blessed and complete
There’s a place here for you with me

So don’t treat me bad just be glad I am strong
I know where I belong, where I belong
And soon you will see we are blessed and complete
There’s a place here for you with me

So don’t treat me bad just be glad I am strong
I know where I belong, where I belong
And soon you will see we are blessed and complete
There’s a place here for you with me

Don’t treat me bad just be glad I am strong

And soon you will see we are blessed and complete
There’s a place here for you with me

kosheen hungry

You’re like a child with old eyes,
cynical and sensible, always full of surprises
you travel far and wide
looking for the feeling, lost inside you
They don’t understand you, no
until it’s too late
with everything they’ve handed you
on a silver plate
-CHORUS-
Are you hungry for a little more
than what you’ve had before?
Are you hungry for a taste of life?
whet your appetite, are you hungry?
Now give me this mountainside
cool waters to lie beside
give me these two strong eyes
to see the difference between truth and lies
Ah, give me this feeling when you kiss me baby
every day and every night
That’s all I need, yes
Everything is gonna be all right
You’re like a sight for sore eyes, lyrical and gentle
borderlining sentimental
You’re like a dream realised
so why do I keep falling back to sleep,
I’m so serious and deep.
