01 01 08, 03.10am

not feeling too great over the last few days, i decided not to follow babs and andi to lunz, about 120km outside vienna. my temperature was certainly not normal yesterday either, but i did not want to spend this particular evening sitting at home on my own.

so i joined sabine and a few of her friends and sister for something "different": they showed a silent movie at künstlerhaus and had a band called 78plus playing music to go with that (shellac samples, cello, percussion, vocals, etc) - excellent! the movie was called "asphalt" (1929), the story of a policeman who falls for a beautiful thief and all the drama that ensues.

after the film, music from the 1920s to 1950s was played, all old, carefully digitalised shellacs. of course it is impossible to sit/stand still with that kind of music playing, so dance we did until 02.40. it was snowing on the way home. i stood in the park across the street from my place for a few minutes, catching snowflakes. a few deep breaths - this year better be good.

song of the day: brazil by pink martini.
