Deep sustained booming noises
Saturday night, movie night. Last night we watched Steve Martin's delightful LA Story. The gorgeous Victoria Tennant flies into Los Angeles from London and captures Martin's heart; as she must have done in real life. Her character says what's on her mind. Talking about her jet lag: 'Yes, I'm shattered, but it's nothing that some sleep and a good fuck wouldn't cure, as my sister used to say.'
She also plays Do Wah Diddy on the tuba. A great pop song. Here's another great tuba tune written by Vaughan Williams, the Manfred Mann of his day.
