This sounds strangely familiar Eglantine! I've chosen to believe that there's an invisible force that likes to mess with our minds and temporarily locates our stuff in another dimension. That's why I haven't been able to locate one of my favorite Lionel Richie CDs. Well, that's my story, and I'm sticking with it! grin

I loved Popol Vuh. I first heard them in the 1980s on a weekly radio program called "Hearts of Space." I'll be back shortly.



Griffin, I've decided to think laterally. They may not be a box (there were 13 big Ikea boxes)... they may be a pile!!

The Three Kings have arrived to my city and this means I have a long night. I’ll make the most of playing the piano (with those hateful headphones), while I wait the children fall asleep. I have to be a good servant of The Three Kings!

The worst is when the children pretend to be asleep. BTW, once The Three Kings gave me this CD. It’s absolutely amazing.

Excellent posts dudes and dudettes!!
Thanks Eglantine, now I am wiser.. (marginally!) the box of cd's music will only turn up when you are not looking for it and are looking for something else.
It's the rule.

Wayne, MrsR made me my own badge because I am poor at the moment too.
I was going to have a badge that just said "Pauper" but went with the rainbow felt one instead.

Good luck with the three kings Recaredo, aren't they a bit late to the party?
Or is this a different party alltogether?

Today we have to take down our christmas trees or we get bad luck, apparently, allthough we once left it till June through a combination of lazyness and a love of the pretty lights.

Yes, tomorrow we’ll take down the Christmas tree. I hope you all have enjoyed this Christmas.

Well, my work is done. The Three kings have to be happy. I suppose they arrive about 5:00 AM.

Good night!

OH no, while constructing my new piece of music, which is a song, and hopefully will have words...
I got myself in a right old tangle...
After writing one complex part of arpegioed background, which i was glad to finally get down right..
I then noticed something....
I had written it in 6/8 time. And therefore all the other bits will now have to be written in this timing, as i am not going to change the bit thats allready down.

I got to wondering, are there many songs written in 6/8 time? you know with verses and choruses?

Make it more difficult than it needs to be for yourself Rossy, why dont you? lol.

And todays most beautifull music....
from the excellent film Ghostworld ( with the excellent Thora Birch)
This piece written By david Kitay...

enjoy ... AHHH thats where you heard it !!!! LOL

I adore Bach's Violin stuff, its always a treat to hear especially since his keyboard works are what garner much of the limelight. I am not sure why, but Baroque violin always seems so much more fun then all the stuff that proceeded it. I guess it is because you don't get much of that intense vibrato and long sweeping dynamics which clutter the melody. The sound is so much more concentrated and doesn't hide behind all that melodrama that has become the norm since the romantics got hold of the instrument. And yet those good ol' Baroque composers can still be as emotionally potent as anything else you will find.

Indeed it is the rule. I found my sewing box, missing for at least a year.

Edit: Rossy, the hot pants pattern is Le-Roy/Weldons, pattern No. 9380. They have a bib. (Yes, I've just found the patterns box. )

PPP "bachs violin stuff" can you imagine, someone goes round to visit Bach one day, and they sidle up to a table crammed with score manuscripts, and they say "What are these?"

Bach says " oh, thats my violin stuff" lol.

Good morning everyone! Wayne, I'm glad you're back. You're lucky Rossy didn't come up with a colorful speculation about your absence! laugh

Speaking of absence... I won't have time to post today because I'm going to spend some time with my nephew and his family. I'm looking forward to that. I will be back later today, however. Enjoy your Friday!

No, what he would say is "Oh, dat'st mein fiolin stuff."

BTW
Glad you liked the Gaga Wayne. Perhaps you might like this as well. I am still trying to wipe the smile off my face after seeing this one.

Ah, Eglantine, not knowing what a "bib" was, I asked mrs R who said; "Oh yes very seventies" and then explained what a bib was...
However, I cant quite get a mental picture together and wanted to make a small request: if you could just put them on and take a photo in the interests of research, this will do the trick.

Of course, if you dont have them anymore, you do have the pattern, and are now back in possesion of your sewing box, so could quickly make them.
If you are not very dextrous with the sewing machine, I believe wayne is a dab hand on the old singer.
I bet waynes is electric though, I think tredles are more amusing.
My favourite thing to do is fix the tensioner that ladies have a habit of taking apart and then putting back together incorrectly and wondering why it doesnt work.

How many ladies have not cursed the tensioner? Its the rule.

Looking at more albums and highlights of the year 2011, I was sorry to see M83: Hurry Up, We're Dreaming didn't make it into the Guardian's 2011 staff picks, as many of those leaving comments on the Guardian site complained. But over at Pitchfork it came in at number 3, and Nicolas Jaar's Space is Only Noise - which I posted about here earlier in the year - came in at number 20. Both lovely albums.

2011 has been a bit of a year for the ladies: brill albums from two of the UK's most brilliant women: PJ Harvey and Kate Bush.

And also - for the first time ever? - a female DJ/producer, Maya Jane Coles, being awarded number ones right left and centre, and her first BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix slot at the ripe old age of 23(!). Back in 2006, Maya and her manager graciously sneaked us into the VIP field at Bestival, by driving us in and doing some sleight of hand with wristbands and security - in those years the festival camping didn't open to the public on Thursday night and our only other option was to camp in VIP - and the next morning we watched her first ever festival show, performing all her own music. It was brilliant. The tent was empty at the start, 11am slot, but heaving by the end of her set. And she was just 17 years old. It's lovely to see her making it big in 2011 after years of seriously hard slog (she started doing this stuff when she was 15) and good to hear she's planning to issue her first album.

Rossy, over xmas I've kind of lost track whether it's morning or afternoon! I've also lost track of what day it is. I shall, perhaps, have to return to the real world next week.

The Dundee cake is now all finished. Shall I make one more round of mince pies with the left-over mincemeat? Vote now!!

I've also been told the xmas deccies should have been down yesterday, but I'm still mulling on that one.

Meanwhile, M83 is on rotation:
