Since we’re being such goodie-goodies and we’re studying very hard for our exams right now, we don’t have time to take any pictures for our blog. But, fortunately we still have some pictures, which were too lazy to upload before, so now that laziness pays off (love it when that happens)! These pictures were taken at the Sinology Oscars. Every year the students who are in their second year of sinology have to make a Chinese movie. Afterwards the school organizes a kind of ‘Sinology Oscars’ where the movies are shown and everybody has to vote. There are ambassadors and people from the Chinese radio and everything. It’s really fun! Last year we won all the prizes, yay for us! You can check out our speech HERE and watch our movie HERE (or with Dutch subtitles HERE). If you want to watch the two of us cursing at each other in Chinese, skip to the scene which starts at 15:22. And we sing a song in the end, haha! If you don’t speak Chinese, nor Dutch, just watch the trailers below!
We had such a good time shooting that movie, if we’d have less homework we’d make another one! This year our dear Friend Laura and her friends had to make a movie and they also won a prize, yay for them!
Here are some pictures of us at this year’s oscars. As usual, Jade couldn’t help herself from dancing acting a little silly. Check out the pretty orchid in her hair though, it’s cute! We also had some group pictures taken. ^^
Last year, we also had a picture taken for our movie, check it out! (Photographer: Wim Knapen)
How are you all doing? We have some pictures we forgot to upload! It’s us rehearsing for the Students on Stage concert. It was super cozy, and since the weather was so nice, we went outside and had a drink on the terrace afterwards. It truly was a lovely day!
For those who regularly read our blog, this is all very repetitive, but still, for those who don’t: a while ago we entered a competition called ‘Students On Stage’ which is organized by our university. We got into the semi-finals (yay for us!) and those were held yesterday! We had a blast! It was a super tiny stage (even though it was at held at a very popular location) but all three of us got on. “Three? My oh my, I though it was only two!” Nope! It is only two, but for one of our songs we hired a very dear friend of Jade to come help us out. He normally plays an entirely different kind of music, but he had a lot of fun doing this for a change. Check out his own band’s facebook HERE. Thank you Matthieu! We also have a new favorite prop called ‘Rocky Rawr’ which we taped onto the synthesizer (you can see him on the left). And of course we brought the usual amount of flowers, clocks, bird cages etc. It was very funny, since all the other bands that played were rock or metal bands, our poppy sound came as quite the surprise for the audience. Haha, maybe we should’ve taken pictures of their faces instead of our own, that would have made a good series of photos!
We didn’t get into the finals (check out who did HERE), but still, we had a good time! At the end of our performance, one of the people who worked there asked us if we wanted to play in their monthly open mic, because she liked our music. Guess when that open mic was? Also yesterday! So basically, we were there all day. Which means we’re very very tired now, so it’s time to get some sleep. =)
Scroll down to see some pictures! You can see the three of us on our tiny stage, and the last picture was taken during the open mic. Enjoy!
Hello to all!
Here are some videos of us playing live, we hope you enjoy them! Two of the songs are new ones, and hopefully we can record them decently and upload them soon! Love, TNT
Sorry for not posting any sooner but we’ve been pretty busy.. Last weekend we entered a competition called ‘Art for Education’ (HERE is their facebook page). The concept basically comes down to this: there is an organization called ‘Art for Nepal’ and they organize fundraisers now and then to try and help children in Nepal to get the education they deserve. This time, they turned it into a little competition where the bands have to perform in a preliminary round before going to the finals. Jade heard about the organization from a friend and we decided to enter the competition. That way we could earn some on-stage experience as well as support a good cause! We wrote a song especially for the cause, which will be uploaded very very soon, so stay tuned! We hope it inspires people to help others out.We were selected for the finals, yippie! So on the 20th of April we will be playing there again. If you’re in the neighbourhood (by which we mean you’re either in Belgium or really close to it anyway) come join us there! It’s super cozy and they serve the best mint tea! Check out some pictures of us playing below, and stay in touch because we’ll upload the new song soon!
Lots of love,
Tall and tiny
ps: if you have a facebook account please vote for us HERE. Yes, we’re obsessed with entering competitions now, apparently.
We want to wish you all a horrible halloween!
To do so, we uploaded a new song today! It’s about the main character from the literary series: Where’s Waldo/ Where’s Wally (whatever you call him). One of our favorite pictures from these books is the one where he walks around in a vampire world. He always looks so happy, even though this is quite a terrible place. People are being tied up and tickled, yikes!! We felt like, maybe underneath the happy man with the striped shirt and the smile on his face, there is boy, feeling very very scared. So in our song, he is trying to get to the next page as fast as possible. But will he ever get out?
Now, before any discussions start, there is no point in going all: “the correct name is Wally!” because it depends on which country you’re from. We actually know him as Wally too, but thought Waldo sounded better for our song. : )
So enjoy our song,
and have a gruelsome halloween!
Horrible hugs and Slimey kisses,
Tall and tiny
ps: go wild on this gorillaz pumpkin carving game HERE!
Quick update! Because we have an exam later on today! This picture was taken a while ago in Antwerp. Elvi is going for the grunge-look: checkered shirt, torn jeans, converse sneakers and all black, except for the lovely collar. Doesn’t she look like a rebel? Jade on the other hand, is going for the alice in wonderland look: rose-earrings, queen-card t-shirt, sweet skirt, cute socks and the nice-girl shoes. And last but not least, don’t you just love that blue sky? ^^
Wish us luck!!
another song upload! This was actually our second song so it’s strange that we’ve waited so long to upload it.. Anyway here it is! =) It started out as this really romantic piano tune Elvi had made, and then Jade improvised some lyrics on it and -wham- we had ourselves a song!
Me and my boyfriend have been together for a long time. Back when we were 15 years old, we didn’t live together yet and couldn’t be with each other all the time, when of course, when you’re in love, that’s all you want! So I often imagined being together in some sort of other world in our sleep, kind of like in that movie ‘the science of sleep’, and that’s what I based the lyrics on. But then a while ago I was on the tram, listening to this song and thinking of my grandma who passed away last year and realising how the lyrics could also be about death and mourning. And so maybe, this song is just for anyone who misses somebody. =)
Also, Elvi has done a good exam today (hooray hurah!!) and we took a picture together! Together that is!! You read it correctly. Of course she had to come check out the puppy again because it’s so damn cute!! Also a bit of a tiny i-eat-everything-you-own monster, but still adorable. ^^
Hope you enjoy the song and the picture!
Lots of love,
Tall and tiny
ps: noticed the orange color bug on Elvi’s hair?
Tall and tiny together in one picture? Nein! No! Nope! Bu! Nee hoor!
This picture was shot a while ago. ^^ Had you fooled there! Elvi is still in France with Laura, and so here I am without her. But no worries, I keep myself busy. ; ) I’m very happy for them! And I have my own things to look forward to (still secret though)! I’m enjoying watching movies with my boyfriend before going to sleep and reading sleazy magazines. Also, I’m playing a great game! It’s called Knights of the Old Republic, and is actually a pretty old game. But it’s so cool! And guess what? My lightsaber is pink!! That game really rocks.. Game lovers, are you here? If you are a gamer, you should try it! Sorry Elvi, you’re in France which means… Girl jedi’s with pink lightsabers on the blog! So anyway, here is our picture as well as an awesome jedi pic I found!
Hello everyone! What do you think of our new blog lay out? We figured with the summer time (not that the weather is any good here but whatever..) we needed a more fresh and playful look! We love it! Aside from that, we also want to present another song to you! It’s called ‘The Magic Garden’. The lyrics (which can be read on our youtube page) are in Mandarin Chinese. It’s a song about a really big garden where many animals live. When you’re there you don’t have to do anything. There’s just you, the animals and the music. And then in the evening you can go watch the sea with the animals, which is a lovely sight. You can watch the pictures Jade drew while listening, or just close your eyes and enter our magical world. : ) Anyway, we hope you enjoy it very much and wish you all a very pleasant weekend!
Lots of love from Tall and tiny
