I heard a rumor that they were going to set up a Skype connection during the party. Maybe you can get in on that and see it all live.

Mr SH - you are so funny! I am all for having fun.
Sam - you are the only kid of the party since the rest of us are all so ... mature. So I will have to make you sleep with my dogs if you drink too much. Just kidding. I think we will have lots of fun.

I'm not sure if I should be nice and behave or just go completely nuts. Well after giving it 3-4 seconds of thought, I decided that I must be true to myself which means I'll probably end up going nuts along with all the other party animals in the room.

A Super-music weekend certainly WILL be here soon.



OK... I agree. A youtube vid of this is needed... Unless of course SH is pulling our leg and in fact they are all just going to sit around sipping wine and discussing the finish on Farmgirl's piano... Yawn. smile


Did I see "Speedo" in the quote? How could I miss it. I know Mr SH wrote underwear model as his occupation. Now I suddenly have a high expectation for the night!

Yes Farmgirl. You see, I was thinking we could all play a fun game called 'strip-piano performance' Here's how it works.

We all start off by playing our most recent recital piece since it is still somewhat fresh. (plus that's all I can remember). No worries/stress. After the performance is concluded, we simply tally up any/all mistakes as well as any area that could use improvement and that total equals how many articles of clothing are to be removed. Simple huh?

This fun little game will then continue until we get through ALL of our past recital performances or we all freeze, whatever comes first.

Who wants to play?

As far as the Skype connection goes, I think that is a fantastic starting point but now I'm starting to think more like 'pay per view'. Here's what I'm thinking.

For the base rate of $39.95 will get you a live feed. The connection won't be great and the resolution may be a little grainy but you cheaped out so this is what you get.

For $59.95 you are upgraded to the level that gets you the live feed PLUS commentary, still shots, and instant replay.

The $79.95 level (BEST VALUE) gets you everything previously mentioned PLUS a signed and scented 8x10 glossy group shot of all the participants as well as a monthly newsletter.

Okay that was a lie, there is no newsletter. I made that part up!.

Anyway, it's Farmgirls party so she will be in charge of the connection, billing etc. It's just a thought but who knows, it could be fun plus who doesn't like a little extra cash!

If we play your 'strip-piano performance' game, I'll be having pieces of my skin flayed from my body, so PLEASE, let's scratch that part of it blush

...yea, well... I'm not so sure I WANT to see Mr. SH dancing on Farmgirls piano in just his speedo's (or worse). I may save my money and let Monica tell me all about it (snicker).

Good idea Sam. Most girlfriends and wives don't particulary like the idea of their significant others going off to striptease piano parties. You would get back home and find the strings missing from your piano.

I'm still stressed! Only one day left to get a better take, but now I have to cope with some very disturbing images! To think this used to be such a reputable thread *mutter*

I expected instead to find *additional* strings in the piano?

I can see that the age old formula of pianos, beer and fags (ciggies that is) will wreak it`s usual havoc. . Put an electrified fence round that instrument, lass!

Oh no! Guys, No strip playing in my house. I have two furry kids. I have to set a good example.

My apologies, Monic and everyone. I think I managed to corrupt this fine thread. That's why I should never write anything or play the piano after I had just one glass of wine. I get a little too happy.

Thoughts of Mr. Super-hunky's speedo should not make AB forum members forget that there is less than 24 hours to get their submissions in to the recital. Go conquer that Red Dot, y'all!

Two pieces composed by Rachmaninoff in the same recital, must be quite rare. Rarer still, it's the exact same piece.

Wow, that IS unusual. We often get multiple Chopin pieces, and even the same piece...but I don't even remember the last time there was a Rach piece in the line-up.

After reading all the "side-bar" discussions about FarmGirl's piano party, I'm extra sorry I won't be there.

I really hope someone brings a camera to the event!

Somewhere on the 15 a thread named "Recital #29 -- Discussion Room" will appear in the ABF forum. Usually it's sticky

Yes this is really surprising. Actually the other piece I have ready now is exactly this Rach32.12 and I would have submitted that if I did not want feedback on the Mendelssohn that I already had laying around for half a year. So we almost had 3 times this same piece.

I previously had Maple Leaf Rag (Scott Joplin) together with someone else. So exactly the same piece is not that rare. Rach op32.no12 has not been performed yet, but the c# minor was quite popular in the past.

Alright, I moved way to the back. I couldn't stand listening to the old recording - too many errors in places that I should play properly. My sister listened and just remarked "you can do better"... uh yeah, you don't understand what it's like... red dot... "YOU CAN DO BETTER". Okay sis!
