Thanks for the birthday wishes, all!
Loved all the posts- you all either know my taste in music quite well or I'm, uh, TOO predictable. smile

ps. Recaredo, looks like I'll need to download that Juanes song onto my iPod, thanks!



ps. my kid says to me today " mom, my present to you was managing to not be sent to the principal's office!"
I'm still trying to figure out how that was a gift to ME.....

I have decided that I will do a regular spot , once a week and it is going to be called
"Rostoskys big issue of the week"

This week its about being charged excess monies just because something is labelled "green" "eco-something" "organic" or "enviro friendly" or "PC"

First a quick note about spaghetti : I dont like it.
"Why?" you may well ask.
Because, ( I would say in return) Because there are too many of them.

If, I wanted a thousand things on my plate at once, variation would be an important factor, which is not the case with spaghettis.

Anyways, that is not my big issue of the week this week.

I have a major issue with being sold something for an unreasonably jacked up price just because the item is preceded in its description with one of the "guilt words" (green, eco something, enviro friendly, extra tasty with prophylactic properties etc etc.)

when I buy a burger, I am so not interested if the contents of said burger are green , eco friendly or ( in the case of mac donalds prophylactic burger) can cause sterility in the adult male.

what I want is (a.) a good greasy burger that may or may not be addictive (b.) not to have to borrow to much money to purchase one.

I would also like it to be politically correct for the waitress to be wearing a uniform of my choosing,( and not have recourse to law when I mention it) but I am grown up enough to realise you cannot have everything for £4.17 ( including fries and a drink)

I dont particularly want it in an eco friendly box,( and definately not if its going to cost me) I was lucky my creator gave me four fingers and a thumb on each hand , which as happenstance would have it is ideal for putting a burger in directly, either hand will do allthough I prefer the right hand as I will be using the left one to hold my ciggy.

I have one issue left for macdonalds to sort out, and it concerns their restroom.. there is a sign displayed very prominently , it says "now wash your hands"

I feel that the washing of hands is actually a lifestyle choice and therefore require the sign to be changed to "you can wash your hands if your not too busy or if you can be arsed"
I will mention this issue to the staff at macdonalds and report back.

Yep really wayne, I have no problem with eating horse meat as long as its cooked well like anything else really.
Our local butcher gets crocodile meat and kangeroo meat ( I likes to call it "skippy")
meat is meat, they eat horses in france.

As with anything a good cut of horse meat cooked really well will beat a bad cut of beef/pig thats cooked poorly.

I do draw the line at dwarf meat though, as usually it comes from the older dwarves and tends to be tough, even if done in a slow cooker.

I have allways called cheap burgers from supermarkets "unspecific burgers" anyways, as I have allways doubted whats in them, I dont mind as long as there is no grisle, I hate grisle and thats why I dont eat ginsters pies, which I have renamed (due to grisley bits) as "Gimpsters pies"

I’m not sure whether I’d like horse meat, but if it’s pretty well cooked… who knows.

Last night I found a fascinating documentary about Tomás Luis de Victoria on Youtube, produced by BBC. I loved it. I know this documentary lasts one hour, but worth it.

Also griffin, as I love rabbit pie ( the type of rabbit that has legs and fur and NOT the other type of "rabbit" that needs batteries)

I can happily listen to this whilst eating rabbit pie.

Just spent four hours making a snowman that looked like wayne playing the piano complete with some old bristles off a broom for his shaved head, then some kids destroyed it shouting "death to mendelssohn" which was a very weird thing for kids to be shouting indeed.

Anyways, its cold cold cold, and I hated the cold before it got this cold.

In wales its too cold to even drop ones pants to go to the toilet, which means a lot of extra washing for the machine to do which means more electric, which means more cost.

In other words its working out too expensive to even go to the toilet in this cold.

Rednecks PJ? here in wales you have to eat ANY meat you can while you can or you get even colder. Yesterday I ate the neighbours gerbils that they kept in a hutch in their garden, just to get warm enough to get half dressed.

I left two sculptures of gerbils that I had carved out of two potatoes in their stead so the neighbours wouldnt notice the lack of gerbils.

This was a kind touch I thought, as the neighbours are vegi"tit"arians, which means when they do notice at least they will have a meal out of the potatoes. actually , remembering the non party, they will probably make a few meals from two potatoes and a soup to not share with anyone.

Glad you had "fun in the snow" while thinkin' of me, Rossy!

I did make the effort, and built a Snowman for RST, but it wasn't that fetching, with dog poo, crisp packets, and tab-ends on the outer surface, so I left it out wink

Hi!

I’ve finished the second volume of Mikrokosmos. This is being more and more difficult, but I’m so grateful to Mr. Bartók. I do feel I’m learning how to play the piano with this method.

Now it’s time to take the first part of the third volume!

These little pieces of music are so amazing.

Congrats Recaredo! That's a real accomplishment. I've never had a chance to play anything by Bartok. Is the Mikrokosmos something a teacher assigned to you?

Good work, Recaredo!
Now, may I ask....um...what EXACTLY is that stick figure doing in the above video pic? If you are too much a gentleman to answer, perhaps some of the NOT-SO-gentlemen men can answer for you.

Hi Griffin!

I have no teacher, but I realised I wasn’t following any piano method and that was a big mistake. So I was looking for some methods, and Mikrokosmos was my choice. I’m pleased of it, especially because I enjoy playing this music.


But also every piece proposes particular challenges, and they are really progressive. Mikrokosmos is a masterwork, but I believe it’s an excellent piano method as well.

Good morning, all.

Are we running out of steam again? Theres not been too much in the thread this week, though some it has been funny.

And some of it has provided "relief" - thanks, PJ.

And horses for courses has taken on a whole new meaning!

But the mane thing is that people eating on the hoof are in a stable condition and don't have the trots. The situation has been reined in before any nagging starts to stirrup trouble.

I'm not going to be as active on the forum over the next few weekends and probably evenings though I may still be able to sneak the odd post in (and many of mine are odd) during working hours.

I spent from shortly after 4pm yesterday until 1:30am this morning on my new Kawai CA95 with just a short half hour for fish and chips, courtesy of Mrs F (I usually do the cooking).

We start today with a concertino from Weber played by Hermann Baumann.

I learnt trumpet for the school orchestra as I approached my teens and can't remember why I chose the trumpet. Had I gone to school at 50 I think I might have gone for the French horn. It's so much more versatile.

Interesting. I am of the opposite opinion. I took the french horn for the school band (have not touched it since and my Dad thought I was nuts.) A beautiful instrument, but not one we hear often as a lead, as in this case.

Staring over I think I'd go for Flute, Sax or Violin. Something likely to get a little more lead time as I love to be adored.

Probably, Wayne, but that isn't going to stop me! smile

I have, however, taken my boots off and donned slippers.

Moscheles was a gifted pianist, conducter and composer. He was a friend to Beethoven and a strong promoter of his music, often a collaborator in the preparation, rival to the kings of the keyboard of the time, Herz, Kalkbrenner, Hummel et al and teacher to the likes of Mendelssohn. He was taught by Clementi, among others, with whom he maintained a lifelong friendship and, like him, settled in England where we was honoured by the Royal Academy.

History takes no prisoners and has not remembered him well. There is no good reason.

Here is his Rondo Brilliant op 54 played by the gifted Marc Andre Hamelin.

Hi all. smile

Massenet is my last morning selection.

From his opera Werther (sweet and original smile ), Va! Laisse couler mes larmes is sung by Elena Obraztsova - my age is showing!



We pass the reins now to Minneapolis and I go back to my new toy.

If I don't remember my appointments this evening have a great week until next week.

Richard, enjoy the new toy! It's certainly appropriate that you'd want to spend more time with the new piano.

Good morning everyone! It's -17c in Minneapolis today, and I doubt I'll be going outside very much today! I wonder how Becca, my neighbor to the north is doing today? It's good to see so much activity on the thread today. Great postings everyone!

My first post today is more than I had originally planned to post. "Magnificat in D" by Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach. Carl was 35 when he wrote his Magnificat in 1749. He uses the natural D trumpets to express a joyful, glorious and triumphal mood. The work both pays tribute to his father, alive at the time, and points to the Viennese Classical style. Yet where his father's work gives prominence to fugue and counterpoint, Carl's expresses a lyrical style, stressing the melodic line. His Magnificat surges with an excited, joyful pulse through the opening movement (semiquavers in the strings and woodwinds paired with accents and triadic figures in the trumpets and drums).

I was only going to post the first movement of Magnificat. However, I couldn't find a decent enough recording (quality wise). However, this recording includes the beautiful soprano solo. "Quia respexit" which is beautiful. Please enjoy!

C.P.E.Bach Magnificat in D Major, H.772, Wq.215

My next posting was selected because of my interest in French Impressionistic music. I doubt that I will take up learning to play "Reverie" by Claude Debussy anytime soon. I've already got plenty of challenge right now learning "Clair de lune."

"Reverie" is a nice relaxing way to enjoy my Sunday morning with cup of java.

I've had little opportunity to explore much of the music of Bela Bartok. I will be presenting more of the things I've been listening to in the future. I particularly enjoyed this set of Romanian Folk Dances composed by Bartok when I heard them earlier this week. This spirited performance by violinist Katica Illenyl immediately caught my attention. The pianist is Tamas Bolba.

Romanian Folk Dances - Bela Bartok



This concludes my postings for today. Enjoy the rest of your Sunday!
