"In people's eyes, in the swing, tramp, and trudge; in the bellow and the uproar;
the carriages, motor cars, omnibuses, vans, sandwich men shuffling and swinging; brass bands; barrel organs;
in the triumph and the jungle and the strange high singing of some aeroplane overhead was what she loved;
life; London; this moment of June."
- Virginia Woolf, from Mrs Dalloway

Where to find me: songs and poems

Pretend that a woman is saying this excerpt from Depeche Mode:

"He'll hear me out, and won't easily be converted
 To my way of thinking; in fact, he'll often disagree,
 But at the end of it all, he will understand me...ah.."

The "ah" at the end is compulsory. :)

I'm going on hibernation, the way most possums do in the winter, but if you ever need me, you can find me here--in these links, ready for the clicking:

Thanks, J!

I started out in the Philippines, doing shampoo commercials on radio for P&G (Pantene) and Unilever (Sunsilk) - remember, "Dati, he used to call me like this!" in the nineties'? Yup, that's where it all started.

I started with Gerry and Lindy Magnaye's outfit called AD FARM.
