  • 02:23:23: Upset guts despite end of antibiotics. #colpermin
  • 02:24:09: Had #meal2 earlier spag bol.
  • 02:27:00: Constipation variety IBS after the opposite earlier. #tmi
  • 02:45:29: The old familiar IBS pain replaces much of the damned coughing. Maybe because first wheat in days? Who knows.
  • 02:46:03: Anyway. #bed
  • 05:27:21: #stillawake some coughing and some reading but no sleeping yet.
  • 15:08:45: #wakingup coughing. I keep thinking that I am over this crud but then my lungs and sore intercostal muscles beg to differ.
  • 15:29:33: #copaxone TL (tummy lower) 1430. Forgot to jab myself yesterday despite written and natdaylog twitter records. Oh well.

YouTube - Sting Live in Berlin 2010 HD part 1

Just watched this on ITV (but they did not show the whole thing - pity). Downloading from YouTube using keepvid.com in case they decide to take them down. Have also added the DVD/CD to my amazon.com wishlist. Awesome new orchestral arrangements.

As the man sings, "Be yourself, no matter what they say."

The man can sing. And can hold a note. I love how he often sings in the Newcastle accent/dialect, e.g. in Why should I Cry For You (part 4). Why am I not surprised that he can play a harmonica as well? I had one once and it is NOT easy.

Jo Lawry. Wow. She is such a sublime singer. Cute too.

Bramber Marcelis on soprano saxophone, too. Stunning.

Then again I am biassed as an ex-alto-sax player and singer. I miss making music. Something else I 'used to be', I guess. I am even considering getting rid of my guitar having not played it for years.

I do love watching a conductor, though, after all those years playing in orchestras, concert bands and dance bands (nothing higher than school level, but never mind). Such a spectator sport / performance art!
