Gabriel's Oboe - Ennio Morricone

My sister is a massive movie-music fan. She loves it. I can't usually watch anything with her without being told who wrote the soundtrack and being given a brief synopsis of the composer's career. Daniel (my brother) and I, in our musically uncultured manner, usually laugh and call her pretentious.

I have literally just finished watching the movie (at 1:30am) for the first time and am still up, downloading the music and finding clips on YouTube. I guess it's one of those pieces that I've aways sort of recognised from somewhere or other but never really fully appreciated till now.

Confessions of a 10-Year-Old - Part 2

Monday 13th September 1993:

On Friday when I came home from school I wathed the T.V. Knightmare was on and it was a new serise and there were new things in it. It was fun. After tea I played on the megadrive. After I played on the megadrive I had my supper. When I went to bed I dremt that I was in knightmare but it was much more fun. I didn't have a helmet on but I had to dodge lot of things which you wouldn't have to do because it would be to hard with a helmet.
