Hmm, LBE, sounds like there's a little 'superglue history' there...

I have gotten up close and personal and become one with various small objects over the years so my husband has pretty much forbid me to ever open the stuff without adult supervision. The last time I tried to sneak a little use while he was at work I almost glued myself to the inside of my piano. I can't reach the cabinet with the nail polish remover from the piano and the piano isn't going to the hallway cabinet because its 100 yrs old and has a busted caster so I decided maybe I shouldn't argue with him on this one.

Deary me, a mutant hybrid, half pianist half piano.
And now for something completely different.

The lonely life of a solitary synchronised swimmer?
There will be one somewhere, a synchronised swimmer who has no one to do it with.. could this be the saddest thing on the planet ( about from justin beiber) ?

I mean what would you say if approached by such a dude or dudette, and asked "please would you come and do synchronised watersport activities with me?"

If I was asked ( and I do hope I never am) I would keep it simple and say something not too offensive, like say " I would rather eat my own toenails, so that will be a no"


I think of these things so you dont have to folks, but then I sort of spoil it by telling you so you do think about these issues.
Bit of a paradox really.

No I cant find the gnome stuff either eglantine, it was ages ago , like years.
We might just have to go with "the new spiritualist church of the haunted upright overstrung instrument"

With or without Waynes permission.

LOL evening folks! I've missed quite the conversations!

Congrats on finding the offending cause of the buzzing! Bet you are much relieved!

LBE: I relate. I'm banned from all instant glues or any similar substance (I once glued myself and a bowl to the kitchen table.) I'm also banned from any and all power tools or anything sharp. I'm called "grace" for my complete lack of it! LOL I'm still suprised I'm allowed to ride my motorcycle!

Thanks BeccaBb (grace) I am very glad i fixed the buzz, its totally sorted now!!!
Mrs R is also not the ( ahem) delicate flower of lady poise and control either, at christmas after I had watched swan lake, Mrs R did what she called ( and I really , like really use this term loosley)
a "swan dance" accross the living room floor.

A silvie Guillem she isn't. The dance ( to my eyes) appeared to be a one legged stumble with the expectation of overbalancing and disaster happening at any given moment.
Arms flapping in a way not entirely appropriate to ballet, more of a sort of voodoo/chicken laying an egg impression really.

Being asked "would I make a good swan?" did not help me to stop laughing at all.

Then to top it off she tried mock anger " you think I am clumsy dont you?"

Well no, I dont THINK that, but i do believe the evidence of what my eyes just saw.

I know she is clumsy, I panic when she climbs on a chair to change a light bulb.

Hmm, I keep on getting 'access denied' on all kinds of threads on PW, except this one.

Here's Slowdive, one of my favourite 'shoe-gazing' bands of the 90s... They worked with Eno and others.



Great tunes, lovely lush production... Just for a Day and Souvlaki are two of my favourite albums.

BTW, re Slowdive, don't let the descriptor 'shoe-gazing' put you off. They were kind of a match for My Bloody Valentine, but in my books better. All those labels... Not good. The music, the albums, are just lovely.

Right, I'm doing budget trip to Istanbul this spring - free flight from ancient air miles that were about to pop their clogs, I just have to find accommodation now. Where should I stay? All advice welcome. Need to book pronto. I've been to Turkey before, but not to Istanbul.

Good morning everyone! Beautiful Vivaldi LBE! Please feel free to post more today and any day. I really don't like being the only one doing classical Sunday postings. It just turned out that way last week. So please join in one and all!

I'll be back in just a bit with my first post.

Good morning Rossy! Sunday post grand master is an awesome title. I hope I can live up to it! laugh

Here is my first post. It is Hilary Hahn performing the first movement of the the Violin Concerto by J. Sibelius. Enjoy!

I can't seem to get enough of the Baroque duets of trumpet virtuoso Wynton Marsalis and soprano Kathleen Battle. Here they perform "Su le sponde del Tebro" by Alessandro Scarlatti. BTW, the entire Marsalis-Battle is a gem in my humble opinion! smile

Morning all. Ah yes Rossy the Swan dive. Us clumsy ones are all familar with that one. It takes a lot of talent to pull of such absolute lack of grace stunts without killing oneself. grin

This matches my mood today:

Thats one of my most favourites beccaBb, many folk dont post Tchaikovsky, i think it may be because its more difficult to spell than rach. This is a wonerfull piano concerto, especially when the octaves double. Brilliant. Thanks.

I've been on a bit of a hunt for different peices I might want to learn later and I like Tchaikovsky's darkness. (best I can describe it.) So.. your welcome! smile

Gorgeous posting Becca! I've always loved this one too. Rossy is right about the trickiness of spelling the composer's last name. Tchaikovsky is spelled properly on my post because I have a smart spell checker grin

It's much easier for me to spell Bach! Here is guitarist John Williams performing "Concerto No. 2 In E Major Bwv 1042".

I. Allegro


II. Adagio


III. Allegro Assai

My dad was a Tchaikovsky addict (among others). Every Sunday was "classical Sunday", meaning that the music played from 7:00 am until he went to bed late at night. I can still whistle along to pretty much every Tchaikovsky record I've inherited from him. Oh, so much precious vinyl smile
This one was one of my favorites:






I can also whistle along to every military march every written prior to 1972..... that's what dad played on the radio while driving me to school.

I'm really in the mood for some good choral music. I'm hoping some of you will share what you have. I love choral music. However, i have not had much time to listen to new things. I'll leave you with this "Ave Maria" by Canadian composer Nathaniel Dett. I posted it a while back. Enjoy!
