I was sitting in Java City this morning having coffee with my friend Jean, ranting on and on about Jonas Kaufmann and what a genius he is, when I realized I don't really do that here. It was fun translating the very intellectual interview with him, hearing him talk about his own voice with such amazing self-awareness that made any comment I might have seem completely trivial. Is it necessary for me to say that I completely concur?
No one pays the least attention to my opinions. Take for instance my constant drone on the subject of Rolando Villazon. Let's just say he needs to acquire some self-awareness before it's too late, if it isn't already.
