Tour Diary South America 6 - Brasiiiil... la la la la la la la laaaa!
Boys and girls!
We are having SUCH a wonderful time over here! Yesterday we played a really nice show in Campinas. And today, ah, again such a great crowd and we felt so very welcome and privileged to be able to go half way around the world and find so many beautiful people who know all the songs by heart and singing them along. Waaah, my heart just exploded with loooove! Tomorrow we do our last one in Rio and then it’s time to go home again. Boy, does time fly when you’re having fun!
Of course there is a lot to go back home to. Today I had the chance to do a little Skype session with my dear dear mom and dad, and little Finn. I do miss them very much. Finn on the other hand is having a blast. He has been visiting this week’s fair in the village where we live so it’s rides and cotton candy every day with his school mates. While I was trying to find out how he’s been doing and asking about his days with the grandparents, all he wanted to do is make funny faces and asked me what the hotel room looked like, so I showed him the shower, the balcony, the ‘please clean my room’ card on the door, the kitsch paintings on the wall. It’s all good as long as he’s a happy boy.
You know, today there was something on my mind. I got some bad comments on my previous entry about the show in Porto Alegre. Some readers thought that I had a very negative experience with the crowd over there because of the chaotic nature of that evening. My blogs are for fun and entertainment. I was just pointing out the huge difference in atmosphere between two gigs. I am a positive person by nature and anybody who knows me just a little bit, knows that I love and respect my audience, in all circumstances. I am not one to comment back on critical or negative posts usually, I don’t really mind them but I am sensitive on this subject, as I always make a big deal out of letting the people know I am a lucky person to have such a solid, sweet following crowd. I give 100%, always, even when there are a few drunkies among the friendly faces. ☺ That being said, think what you like, you are in title to. But I did wanted to share this one sentiment with you. So there! ☺
Talk about crazy loving audiences; Kyuss’ John Garcia is kicking ASS all over Europe right now. Agua de Annique’s Rhythm section Rob and Jacques back him up and I follow them around on YouTube to see how they are doing. Well, they are doing just fine. See for yourself: www.youtube.com/watch#!v=MUoOzQayFPQ&feature=related When I get home, Rob will be on tour for another week and a half. I will try to go and see them one of those days.
And to close my dear diary scribbles today, a question: Did you hear the new Deftones album? Sweet mother of spirits, Lord, God himself almighty and all that is holy, It is GOOD! I say check it out! ☺
Hugs and such, Anna XxX
