random gifts, voice class and carol's party

- I received 2 norwegian (i assume) DVDs from eivind today :) All the way from Norway (I think). How exciting, I'm looking forward to watching them. My DVD drive allows switching of regions 4 times... grr. Anyone have a region free DVD player?

Also a few days ago I got a Dr Who magazine.. all the way from Scotland! Thanks to the Bain Family. Also very excited about that. I love getting random gifts.. THANK YOU!

- Voice class today I told Akina that I was quite sick of "I'm not that Girl -- Wicked". I now can sing the whole song with my mind elsewhere.. like driving. Before you know it, you're at the end of the track. So we started on "Mama who bore me" from Spring Awakening. Which is even more in my range..  but the syncopation is a challenge.

- Then Carol's birthday party at the Domain.. which marks the third year in a row I went to her birthday celebration :)

Hawaii, Oslo is Norwegian, Adams apples is from denmark. Both have english subtitles, so understanding should pose no problems.

I selected them for you because they are both -very- far from the typical Hollywood flick. Adams apples is also about religion and faith, its got depth and is the kind of movie one can talk about. Which I've enjoyed doing with a number of people, only most of my friends are atheist, which is one reason I'm curious as to -your- reaction to it.

Region codes utterly suck. They should be banned outright as the artificial restrictions on trade that they are. Hope you find a region-free DVD-player. I'd have ripped them and re-saved them region-free for you, but I've got bad experiences with sending self-burned DVDs cross-border. Customs tend to think they're pirated and gets quite irate.
