On Water Colours And Squirrels And Sweet Jane And Mulan

A few years ago, I remember reading somewhere about how Lou Reed's Sweet Jane had one of the most recognisable riffs in all of rock and roll history. I immediately went on to YouTube and played the song. I liked it from the start but was thinking, when is this riff going to arrive. That is, of course, until 3.20 and then bam. Although I had never heard the song, the writer was correct. It was and is one of the most recognisable riffs in all of rock and roll history:

Last night, we enjoyed watching the new, live action version of Mulan at Kaitlin and Andrew's place. They are moving to an apartment on The Pearl next weekend. We will have to check out their place in the near future.
