Auld Lang Syne

I watched How I Met Your Mother long ago but didn’t finish it at that time. Due to the outbreak, finally, I got the time to revisit it.

I do believe this is an excellent relationship tutorial for kids and teenagers. It’s about not just the relationship between couples, but also friendship, the relationship between children and parent, and the relationship between you and yourself. And it’s its comprehensiveness makes it legen, wait for it…, dary!

Thanks to Ted’s nature of OCD, he experienced all kinds of love before he met Tracy. And of course, he’s always around Robin. It’s hard to tell whether this is a blessing or a curse.

But kids, there’s one important take away for me: so-called marriage, or the one, is never the destination. It’s not even qualified to a milestone. It’s just a bonus. The point is to be happy with your friends, be loyal to your hobbies, and enjoy yourself.

Just like the blue french horn, or the yellow umbrella, there might be some icons glowing in your life. But more importantly, is to live those ordinary days vividly.

Oh! Howie!

It’s just so gland to witness, if I may, friends growing up.

You see, before Howard met Bernadette, he was such a nerd. For sure he has a colourful inner world all the time. But somehow he was disconnected with others. Till I saw this one, he had mastered the art of love.

So is Mike Ross, Louis Litt and maybe Harvey Specter. It’s my honour to meet you guys.

Sir Simon Denis Rattle & LSO

Oh! It’s such a lovely night! Though I can’t get Jeremy Clarkson out of my mind. They just share exactly the same hairstyle!

I have to say that when I checked NCPA’s website, I saw Rattle’s picture and I wondered: I saw this guy somewhere. Oh, it’s the cover of the playlist Sir Simon Rattle Essentials. Then I checked about him, his edition of The Planets and The Nutcracker are just so famous! How stupid I am!

I have to say LSO is wonderful. Last time when Muti came to NCPA, Chicago Symphony Orchestra went alone with a compressed size. That’s a nightmare! This time, LSO together with Rattle is just, it might be a little bit inappropriate, juicy! Oh! The plucking of cellos is soul-touching! And the string section is of tons of power!

It’s so lucky to meet Simon Rattle. And Riccardo Chailly is coming to NCPA this weekend. And Anne-Sophie Mutter will come this winter. I love her edition of Four Seasons with Karajan and Vienna Philharmonic so much. It’s immaculate! It’s like dreams come true!

Roadhouse

It was a warm, gorgeous, early-spring evening, and the man had his top down and all his windows lowered. His arm was hanging over the driver’s side door, and his fingers were tapping along to the music on his radio. His head was bobbing along, too, as the wind blew through his hear.

I read this section in The LAST LECTURE by Randy Pausch today. I guess this is a much better intro to the playlist Roadhouse.

Please allow me to present you the Apple Music playlist, Roadhouse. After dinner, listening to this playlist while walking along this charming spring is the most high-getting event that I could ever imagine.
