- Rawr! Hah, scared you.
- Me, Myself, and I
- Yeah g'day. I'm Kieran, a 2nd year student at Victoria Uni, doing a BA/BMus, majoring in English and Classical Performance Voice. Living in an awesome flat with awesome people. It is, predictably, awesome.
Feel free to have a look around. If you have any questions, please don't hestitate to ask management. Your custom is valuable to us. Thank you.
- Progressive Rock is my favourite genre, bands like Yes, Jethro Tull, Dream Theater, Porcupine Tree, Blue Öyster Cult and Pink Floyd. Metal and prog metal is good too, especially Ayreon, Iron Maiden and Dio. For a bit of the folk metal variety I like Vintersorg, Finntroll and Ensiferum. I also like good old rock like Queen and the Beatles, a bit of jazz from time to time, Celtic music, some Weird Al Yankovic, stuff from cabaret shows and classical pieces too. And then of course there are Bal-Sagoth and Dragonforce, which are just funny. In fact I like all genres except rap, hip-hop and pop – some songs of those are okay but mostly not to my taste.
- Så I Som Himmelen (As It Is In Heaven) – Swedish movie about a choir and music and stuff. It's beautiful, I love it, best movie ever. Se7en, The Butterfly Effect, Shaun of the Dead, Zoolander, Chicago, the 3 LOTRs, the Monty Python movies, Kenneth Branagh's Much Ado About Nothing, Pirates of the Carribbean 1 & 3, and some others. I haven't seen many movies to be honest, but I like quality comedy, some thrillers and action movies too. Not so keen on horror, I go to the movies to have a good time rather than be freaked out. Oh yes, I used to live just down the road from WETA workshop, and Peter Jackson used to go to the same fish and chip shop as us before he was famous and we moved away from the area. We saw him quite a few times. That's my claim to fame anyway.
- Football all the way! Especially night football, heh. And cricket.
- The Hitch-Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams! The best five-part trilogy, radio series and movie ever! His Dark Materials trilogy by Philip Pullman; Bel Canto by Ann Patchet; the Bartimaeus trilogy by Jonathan Stroud; Lots of others that I can't think of right now.
- Happiest When
- Singing! :-) Also when spending time with my friends, relaxing and having time for myself, and eating good food.
- Dairy Products
- I'm allergic to them. Surprisingly, it doesn't really bother me any more – I don't miss the foods, the annoying thing is making sure I don't eat them by accident.

Q: IS NUMBER 8 PRETTY?
He really is.
Q: WHAT WAS YOUR FIRST IMPRESSION OF NUMBER 1?

His hair conquers all! And his football skills.
Q: HOW DID YOU MEET 3?
Vic House! Woop woop
Q: DO YOU THINK 12 WOULD KILL SOMEONE?

An awesome flat in Wellington and the momentum to come join us at uni!

No way brother, that girl is well taken!

Do you not see anything wrong with "Bobs greengrocer" advertising "banana's" and "avocado's"? Are you puzzled by sentences like, "the cat waved its tail," or "they're going to eat their lunch there," or "you're getting your own back"?
If so, you're not alone. But the good news is, there is an answer! go here:
Spread the good word of the correct apostrophe!

This is an activity we had to do for NZSM 118 Vocal and Theatre Arts; we had to answer these questions about a minute or so of our lives. Next week we have to perform them to the rest of the class.
Who Am I? I'm Me, Kieran James Rayner, an 18 year old music student.
What time is it? It's roughly 8:30pm on Tuesday the 17th of July, 2007. It's dark outside, but I am also not near any windows, so I don't pay much attention.
Where am I? In a keyboard lab, downstairs at the Kelburn Campus of the New Zealand School of Music in Wellington. I am sitting at a computer desk in one corner of the quite large rectangular-shaped room, with walls to my front and left.
What surrounds me? The computer monitor and keyboard are on the desk in front of me. To my right on another desk facing me there is a musical keyboard with headphones, which has served to distract me for a short time. The wall to my left has some funny quotes pinned to it, all of which I have unfortunately read before. A fellow student, a flute player, is at another computer against the wall across the room to my right, near the door. He is checking his emails, it seems. Keyboards line the walls around the rest of the room, with mac mini computers dotted here and there.
What are the given circumstances?
Past: Despite getting up on time I was slightly late to my 9 o'clock lecture, having gone to the wrong lecture theatre. After that I went to hear the NZSM orchestra in a free lunchtime concert at Old St Paul's. They played some wind and brass repertoire, the names of which I forget, and Dvorak's Serenade for Strings, which was great. My good friend was leading the cellos, so I was particularly pleased to see her do well. I then attended a 2.00 lecture (after getting halfway to the wrong room again) in which I was particularly sleepy. I then went home, thought about doing work but didn't, had dinner and then came to opera rehearsal at 6.30. We ran through the chorus item, and then I came down here, where I've been since then.
Present: I am printing off this week's harmony assignment, in the vain hope that I'll do it while I wait for my songs to be rehearsed. The flautist is talking to me, he wants to organise a lesson on breathing with my singing teacher, for flautists and singers have a lot of common technique, apparently. I wouldn't be surprised. I am also checking my emails, wherein I receive an invitation to a wedding. I make a note to reply and accept when I have my diary on me. I am also silently thanking Laura for reminding me I had to do this task for Vocal and Theatre Arts, for I had completely forgotten.
Future: I am really hoping the rehearsal will hurry up and get to the end of Act II so I can get my songs over with and go home; however I am doubting that this will happen and am resigned to waiting for a long time. I have another 9.00 class tomorrow, so an early night would be nice, although it seems unlikely at this stage. I have my harmony assignment to do for Thursday, this task to do for tomorrow and a diary for my THEA 220 dance course to keep up to date. I also have to corner Frances, Barbara and Daniel and get a photo for the Fridays at Mahara Concert we have coming up soon. I need to get the photos to the organising committee by tonight so they can go on the advertising poster.
What is my relationship?
To the computer: Excited by the news it is giving me about the wedding. Slightly bored by the harmony assignment it is obediently printing me.
To the keyboard next to me: I plinked around on it a little. It was fun until I managed to make it transpose down two octaves by accident and couldn't figure out how to get it back up.
To the flautist: Amicable, but then slightly irritated as he confidently tells me my accent is not from New Zealand. Sigh. I am also trying, completely unsuccessfully, to remember his name.
To the opera rehearsal: Slightly
