Great post, and excellent choice! ha

I think it could also work with Quentin Tarantino, or by exhuming Alfred Hitchcock....


Hey, I'd watch it. I think it could actually work. Sort of a cyberage version of the Mephisto Waltz. (Alan Alda, not Liszt)


Slow down and do it right.

There was already a short T&J movie where Tom gets killed by a piano while chasing Jerry. Then he ascends to heaven, where he is told that he has one hour to make Jerry forgive him, otherwise he'll end up in heck. And at the end:
Tom wakes up, and it was all a dream.





I think we should all get together to write a script for a new B-movie, using all the latest CGI technology, which might interest a Mr. Steven S. grin

My idea involves a new piano competition where competitors have to play on a brand new 110-key grand designed by the founder of the competition, who also composed a concerto that all finalists must play.

Competitors start disappearing mysteriously as they begin practicing on the amazing Böstéînfåzyám piano, trying desperately to master the intractable difficulties of the 90 minute concerto. Everyone thought they were getting cold feet, and pulling out one by one, but too embarrassed to let the organisers know they were flying off home.

Then people began noticing that the piano was 'developing' more and more keys, and its tone was getting more mellifluous as competitors disappeared off into the ether. One of the favored pianists put a hidden video camera to see what was happening during the practice sessions....... wink

....and saw, to her horror, that when the pianist played a wrong note, the piano lid suddenly expanded and curled out, and turned into a huge upper jaw to gobble up the hapless pianist, sucking him into its innards.........grin



Can't wait, never could resist B-horror...

Lemon Pledge +1. Speakers suck at reproducing piano sound. Maybe the speaker approach is flawed completely. But the elecronic sound boards are not really much better either. So my vote is 'no'

But I realize that many people don't hear the difference so 'democracy' may determine otherwise...

And capitalism says: As long as there are people willing to shell out good money for quality acoustic instruments, they (the acoustic instruments) won't die out.

The instruments that will possibly die out are the cheaply made acoustic instruments, with mediocre sound and not-so-great action. Because these instruments don't offer more value for their money than good digital pianos. But who knows; maybe people who buy pianos will somehow still like acoustic instruments.

That's why capitalism is good: It gives people a choice as to decide what will survive in the market.


Everything is possible, and nothing is sure.

Yes maybe that's right, if it's just market work yet then it is capitalism.

But government also plays a role. If it's decided that it's too expensive to *educate* the people that build, tune and maintain these pianos, then it's more a political choice?

First of all, Pogo never said "marry for infatuation". Get it right.

Secondly, I'm so sick of older people who condescend to young people for being young. That s*** is obnoxious.

Government pays the schools a lot. But only the official recognised institutions. And the government also judges the quality of the institutions and for accreditation of the diplomas. So I suppose they have quite some influence on WHAT is being teached.

Perhaps in general education but what government document or instruction can you produce that outlines and refines the process of building and tuning a piano? Can't a home schooled person become an expert piano builder or tuner without the assistance of government? Or is it this?

Hey, I'm a decidedly older person. I'm on your side.

(More or less happliy married for 30 years. One of my favorite songs is "Hello Young Lovers" from the King and I. It pretty much says it all.)

I don't know the situation in America; but in Germany there are schools ("Berufsfachschulen") where instrument building is taught as a profession. The schools are usually public schools and supervised by the government.

Another way to become an instrument builder is in a company; starting as an apprentice and eventually becoming a graduate and a master.
I don't know much about the training system in companies; but I believe that government agencies supervise them. After all, diplomas should be comparable.

No, that is not "why capitalism is good" - it's merely an assertion of some beliefs you have about the marketplace and about people and about musical instruments. To me, it amounts to "why capitalism is bad", because there's a false relationship between demand, worth, and cost.

A flaw in the premise that immediately pops into mind is this: the people who may find the most value in an instrument (or whatever) and can get the most use out of it, may also be the least able to afford that item. It's quite possible for something that has worth to the culture as a whole to fail in the marketplace.

Unfortunately, the only objective, universal measure of "value" that we have is money. By that measure, the people who find the most value in instruments (or anything else) are the people willing to pay the most for them.

Beyond that, there are various private and subjective measures of "value" capable of yielding any sort of argumentative conclusion clearly implied by the premises with which one begins the argument.

Well, since you ask, "condescend" is a verb while "condescending" is an adjective. People can condescend, but they cannot condescending. People can, however, be condescending.

Not true. It is perfectly acceptable to use the verb as a present participle with an "ing" ending.

Example: I'm tired of people speaking to me like I'm a child.

The word speaking can be an adjective, but in this case, it functions as a verb and an alternative to the following sentence:

I'm of people who speak to me like I'm a child.

The use of "condescending" as a present participle makes it a verb in a continuously active form. It happens all the time in all sorts of situation.

I'm tired of driving to work.
I'm sick of people complaining.

It's the same thing as Joel's sentence.
