Life is short, life is slow - videoclip

Massimo impressed me when he played ‘Ruby Red’ for the cd project that I decided to do something on my own for the project as well.

I decided to create a video clip and the camera was running while I did the recording session of the song 'Life is short, life is slow'. You can say that the video clip is a live registration and doing it was fun :-). I hope that you will enjoy the song . . . "

View this video and go to "
HN CD Project"

P.S. you need the QuickTime player to see the clip, go to
to download a free version of QuickTime.

Heather's birthday gig at Paradiso

Written by Cynthia Fridsma

Amsterdam, July 6, 2004

I had to do lot’s of things on July 6, because it was a special day: Heather became 37 and I had to check the email before I concentrate on Heather’s performance later that night. That’s why I woke up at 6:30 a.m. and checked the email for the birthday page that you can find at

The after party

I organized a small ‘after party’ with a few people from the mailing list and made a reservation in a local restaurant in Amsterdam North (the part of Amsterdam where I live) and it was too bad that Massimo and Ewout (editor and webmaster of and Mike Smit (photographer) couldn’t be there with us.

Nijntje is no longer with us

I feel sad right now because my ‘child’ died last night. I am talking about my bunny, ‘Nijntje’. She had a good life, because she never lived in a cage and jumped around the house all day. She became five, which is a respectable age for a rabbit but I am going to miss her anyway. An animal can give you so much love . . .

Nothing is going to last forever . . . that is the way life is, I know. But it does not take the pain away . . .

My bunny named 'Nijntje' died on the same night that I upload the video 'Life is short' for the CD-Project. This song is now dedicated to my bunny. I'm going to miss her.

Go to "Personal, Pets, Cynthia's bunny" to see a short movie from my bunny and to see a few photos


Nijntje born on June 18, 1999. Died on August 10, 2004
