I was Swimming Across the Sky

I'm four days late..! But Emilie Simon's new album, The Big Machine, was released in France this past Monday! Currently it's too pricey for me to import a copy, so I'm thankful to the youtube users who have uploaded the album so that I can at least listen to it :)

So, I ended up watching the whole L'Olympia concert... (feels a tiny bit of shame since there are other more important things I should be doing right now). It is truly amazing!! I love watching Emilie perform live - it's so interesting to see how the different sounds and effects are created. I'm especially interested in that gizmo on her arm that she uses to manipulate her voice. The guy in the top hat is amusing too. :)

Singers like Emilie get me daydreaming of what it must be like to be a singer. To the dismay of my family members, I'll often belt out a tune in any given area of the apartment...

Erm, anyways, that aside..! I had lots of free time at work, and started a painting on photoshop *points at preview image below*. I'm not very good at epic-type pictures, so I hope I can poke at this one until I can get some kind of finished piece out of it! :D

Have a good weekend, everyone!!

Aww, I don't mind you singing... and I wouldn't trust myself owning a tranquillizer gun, I just might use it.
