tuesday afternoon, my parents came over. my dad had promised to make teriyaki and so he did. he had brought beef, mushrooms and spring onions. plus a packet that contained spices and stuff for the sauce. i offered to help of course, but he insisted on doing everything by himself. i must admit, i was a little worried how the instant marinade would taste like, but it was pretty good.

i have never made beef teriyaki myself. i remember a while ago, at the end of last year i think, i made chicken teriyaki with baked avocado and tomato. i'll try to find the recipe for you. i'm sure i've written it down somewhere..

i learned that my mother is a little annoyed with a neighbour who claimed events like live earth are useless. nothing more than a 'look i bought the tickets and a t-shirt so i'm helping too' thing. according to this woman, live aid didn't help anyone either, because there is still hunger in africa. i'm not sure where this person gets her information from..

we listened to the beatles' love album and much later charlie parker & miles davis' bluebird: legendary savoy sessions was put on.

oh and my mum asked me: "how many volunteers does this livejournal of yours actually have?"
i told her there are around fifty more or less active volunteers in support. i could be slightly off here, but not much i think. if there's support folk who'd like to correct me, by all means..

Sounds like an opportunity to find out the truth and surprise her. :)

Live aid, 8, earth etc.
Useless might be exaggerated. I do agree with her that for several people it is a way of calming their own conscience, and that's a valuable point.

I completely understand the Arctic Monkeys who refused to play, claiming that one concert of them uses so much energy, that it would be hypocrite to say that you play for the environment.

And how bad it may seem, but did Live Aid really help? Apart from launching U2 world wide as a major stadium act and Bob Geldof to become Sir Bob? I'm sure several projects in Africa were made possible with their help, but hunger certainly hasn't disappeared.
