No can do. You see, the very foundations of the music would be torn asunder if the music world were to see a pianist of my caliber playing a spinet. People would realize that they've wasted tens of thousands of dollars on pianos that are big enough to house small cars, hundreds of thousands of dollars to build homes or rooms large enough to accommodate those instruments.

No, I think I prefer the status quo. The alternative--people throwing their grand pianos from windows, junkyards piling up with the huge black carcasses, mobs of people rushing homes that have spinets--is unthinkable.

I thought Doug's avatar was of him! laugh And, Jerry is always posting his picture! In fact, he just posted a new one--a day early, to boot--looking mighty "dapper" again. I am beginning to get visions of Jerry being the next James Bond! smile

Hey, Michael! You said you "have a thing" for Virginia and Virginians. Have you "met" Virginia (from Virginia)? She's great!

I've enjoyed seeing all the pics. ChickGrand--you're too funny! Teachum--that's such a great pic!

I'll try to post one myself soon. In the meantime, here is at least a pic of my piano:
[Linked Image] (Edit: originally posted the URL as opposed to the picture--Duh!)

You can't really see the "space" around it. That's because there really is no space around it! About four feet from the back of the bench begins our teeny, tiny galley kitchen. Not too far to the left is the dining table.

Plays--methinks you have good taste in art (and music!) smile

tk, here's a stupid question (Would you expect otherwise from me?): What are those metal brackets for? I'm guessing they're not cup holders.

kathyk--it's one of the Peter Maly designed Sauters. The wood is cherry, and it has just a plain wax finish.

markb--Oh, I dunno... teeny, tiny cups would fit! Shot glasses, perhaps? wink Really, though, they are actually candleholders! The piano even came with candles! I had a perfect excuse to use them a couple of weeks ago. We lost power, but just as I was getting the candles out, it went back on! Maybe next time.

Candleholders! Wicked cool! TK, get yourself some more candles in there, stat!

Man, I really should put something -- anything -- on my piano. It's just this huge expanse of polished mahogany, just waiting to be scratched. Again.

There was one thing on it for a while. Mr. Sphinx gave me a framed Gary Larson print. It is a concert pianist addressing the audience: "Don't make me come over there."

tk--Gorgeous piano! But a word of caution: don't let candles get anywhere near your piano! We had a candle tip over and it *burned* our piano. eek It was repaired, but you can still see the scar. Mr. AdagioM didn't think it made sense to replace the whole lid over a cosmetic issue, and it makes a good story, anyway. wink

I think I'd put shot glasses in there...

That is an extremely cool looking piano. And bench, I might add. Do you love it? I thought maybe the brackets involved being shackled to the piano until you had put in enough practice time every day.

Franklin Pangborn was an actor, primarily of the silent movie era, known for playing uptight, accountant types. Specifically, he played the bank examiner in the W.C. Fields movie "The Bank Dick", my favorite comedy of that era.

(I work at a bank, and started out as an auditor, so he is sort of a patron saint. . .)

I can't seem to decide on one. I've posted 3 different ones so far today. Better settle on one quick-like!

There's no such thing as an uptight accountant.

edit: Jerry, why don't you post all three avatar candidates and we'll vote?

So I've seen "Fighter Pilot Who Didn't Blow Off His National Guard Service" Avatar.

And now we have "Jerry with Clock."

What's the third?

That grain pattern on the bent side is gorgeous. I love rosewood, especially when it's done in a red tint and not the brown. Irving's Centennial D is a gorgeous example. I've seen a few others. I'll add yours to my list of favorite red rosewoods with great grain patterns.

Yes!! Ballyhoo's picture brought a big smile to my face.

Yesterday, I realized I actually just use my big toe for the dampers. I really *do* need chimpanzee feet for those times when I'm doing the dampers, the soft and the sostenuto all at the same time. I think we need a Barefoot Pianist Club. :p
