At Star City tonight
I literally ran into this lovely, accomodating gentleman, (otherwise known as Mike Goldman) tonight. We chatted for a bit, but unfortunately i had to go and find the theatre for the show! I highly doubt Mike will ever read this, but if he does, just wanted to let you know that i consider you south australian, so you're ok in my book, and i'm glad you think i can do better than that 'disgusting gambler' - i think so too!
Tonight i saw Miss Saigon for the very first time at the Lyric Theatre. It was incredible! We were fortunate enough to have been invited by Miriam (second from left), who has been playing 'Kim' in the current production. Tonight was her last night, so she also invited us to the cast party after the show. First from the right in the picture is Juan, who plays 'John'. I also had the opportunity to meet Liam, who is one of the kids who share the role of 'Tam' and Leo Tavarro Valdez, who plays 'the Engineer'.
I was only vaguely familiar with the story of 'Miss Saigon', and only after flicking through my flat-mate's programme, so i was entralled by it the whole time. I'm glad that no-one told me how it ends, or it wouldn't have been the same.

'it's been a while' is the understatement of the year when it comes to this little blog. A quick update - nothing much has changed since my last blog. I'm still at Word, still at the same church and still single - much to the amazement of some people who never seem to tire of asking THE question.
Anyway, i came home from church sunday morning to be introduced to my flatmate's latest addition, Humphrey. He's a chocolate toy poodle. Toby, my flatmate's 2 year-old white toy poodle is not quite sure what to think :-)
I'm a fan of 'so you think you can dance' on 10. I've been amazed at the number of Christian artists who's music has been featured on the show. Crystal Lewis, Third Day, Audio Adrenaline and Shawn McDonald are some from the most recent weeks. However, i have discovered a song and as such, an artist through this show. They're called oneRepublic, and their song is 'apologise'. The version i have features Timbaland. I'm looking forward to the release of their debut album this month.
Another two artists and albums i love at the moment are Need To Breathe's album 'The Heat' and Phil Wickham's 'Cannons'. In the words of a very happy man, do yourself a favour, go out and get there albums! (Or at the very least check out iTunes or their mySpace)
'till we meet again ;-)
