I went to see the awe-inspiring Lisa Gerrard of Dead Can Dance fame t'other night, and was quite blown away. She has the most amazing other-worldy voice. She is on a world tour, so do yourself a favour and get some tickets to see her. For those of you in Old Londinium, she is playing at the Shaftesbury Theatre on Sunday April 29th, and in New York at the Concert Hall, Wednesday May 9th. Check her website for other venues and cities. If you have never heard her, one of my favourite tracks is 'The Host Of Seraphim'. Seek it and listen loud.

Following on from my last photo, I watched the film 'Children Of Men' last night. Very interesting and realistic I thought. I wanted to take photos of the set of course, of England in the future. Have you seen it?

Have a warm and cosy Easter folks.

And forget it not...Pod loves you!

Another great photo, Pod! I like how you turned one lady choc. rabbit around so she had her back to you. Don't tell me you didn't do that, because I know you did.

They certainly are elegant.

Smoke and Mirrors would be a good place to start reading Neil Gaiman. Theres a particularly wonderful story about the Holy Grail.

have a lovely lovely weekend.

I checked out Lisa Gerrard on iTunes. She does sound otherworldly. They don't have the track you recommended, but they have some of her work from movie soundtracks like Whale Rider and Gladiator, and a solo album called "The Silver Tree." Will have to listen more!

I bought myself a little chocolate bunny in the company cafeteria yesterday!

Thanks for the tip, Pod. I LOVE Dead Can Dance. Also, thank you for filling me in on Clive Owen - it's nice (FINALLY) to have an idea of the kind of guy that floats Pod's boat! Have a FABULOUS Easter. I'm going to chase a few bunnies.

P.S. - GREAT photo, by the way!

Hey Man,

Good film indeed. Good shots lately, too. Thanks for telling me to get oof my butt and start posting more shots - I think I've just been waiting for the weather to get warmer... I'll have to keep waiting - snowed today. Brutal. Talk to you soon, Dude.

...hey, look at that, Ja.mes says he's back. Apparently I don't have to post for him anymore. Nice to find out, if only through a comments section.

Clive Owen is attractive, but I truly think you are in love with Steve Reed (you fuss over him so, and never fuss over me). *SIGH*

Now pod, we all know you start with the bunny heels (kind of like Barbies) first. Then you slowly eat your way up to the ears at last. Pure chocolate enjoyment!

:) Happy Easter!

Happy Easter to you to Pod :-) Hope you got to scoff lots of choccie.

I think Rakim is my fave track from DCD. I love it when she plays the yang chin.

Hope you had a wonderful Easter weekend yourself Bad Photographer. heh.

I'm sorry to say this, Pod, but Red Tulip is actually one of the worst chocolate you can buy here. Doesn't taste like chocolate at all ! Hope you only photographed those bunnies and didn't buy any !
