Why can’t all these famous classical composers write simple stuff that I can play. Yes I realize that Moonlight Sonata and Für Elis are meant to be simple stuff, but you play them and tell me that they are simple - no not you Ilya, you’re not included because you’re an actor and we all know that actors are multi-talented. You can probably sing and dance wonderfully too. Give impressive speeches while juggling and riding a unicycle. Plus make a killer cocktail, play a mean game of tennis or chess while giving Dave Grohl, Ringo Starr and Cozy Powell and run for their money on Drums. No you make the complicated look easy.

Come on, a girl in England came up with celebrated chop waltz (AKA: Chopsticks), that’s the kind of simple I like. OK, so you don’t know her name, but the composition is well known.

BTW: If you watch Dickinson on AppleTV - which is good - you see Emily play chopsticks on the piano, but the song hadn’t been written at the time she is portrayed playing it. Don’t let that put you off, or if it does, don’t watch it because from an inaccuracy perspective, that one is very minor considering the rest of the content.

We’ve started watching “The Politician” on NetFlix, so far so good.

We went to IKEA too as they had the draw unit that Karen wanted. It was good to go out for a drive, even if the car did 95% of the driving for me.
