Wow! Katie... How beautiful. The only pic I've ever seen of you was the one holding up the quilt. It simply doesn't do you justice. I hope you post this one in the new forums but I understand your hesitation if it's a safety issue. I feel the same way. Gosh, thanks for letting us see this one. As CG says "it's perfect."

Bob's comment made me realize why it's so perfect. I've never seen a photograph that so perfectly captured "That Mona Lisa Smile" as that picture of you does--the knowing smile in the eyes and lips that have kept so many wondering for hundreds of years.

Re: Does anyone feel like posting their picture? - 04/20/05 04:13 PM

CG, I thought that Mona Lisa question was answered some years ago when they found that "Mona Memo" that, roughly translated, mentioned something about "seeing beHIND the quilt"


Oh just shut up,

Oh, and katie, I agree with CG on this one, but would caution about the "hundreds of years" thing .... my advice is "strike while the iron can still GET hot!"

Yep. I was being totally serious. As a former professional photographer and painter whose favorite specialty in both media (good thing 89th has been eaten by the lions in The Collosseum) was women, I meant that. There is that same inscruteable smile in that photograph. The photographer and the subject created an instant classic.

Hey Apple, there's a guy named C.V. Alkan over in THIS thread

http://www.pianoworld.com/ubb/cgi-bin/ultimatebb.cgi?/topic/2/7879.html

who is trying to search for your neat "hand warmer" trick you mentioned several months ago. Several folks mentioned that you HAD a good idea, but nobody could find the actual thread.

I posted what I THOUGHT you had suggested at that time, but I thought you might go over and straighten out what I may have been mistaken about.

thanks,

I guess it's been kind of hard for you to warm up to me for some reason, but I do want you to know how central i think you are to what made this place unique...but then you hear that from all the boys....

Plus, Plus, and PLUS, Mr. Grand, unless one is nailing one of them "left hand only" etudes, there is the nagging need for that SECOND critter!


Perhaps a better word than "nailing" could have been found ... it has such an "unprofessional" feel (? ... yet another vocabularic conundrum ) to it, at least in the veterinarian context.

There's probably a "little know codicil" making it unethical to even use the word at Vet-Conventions.

Perhaps jodi could fill us in?

Re: Does anyone feel like posting their picture? - 04/21/05 11:49 AM

Plays,

When I worked for the S&S C&A dept more than 30 years ago, that piano was sometimes in "the Basement" (where the C&A dept was located) for work. Franz M. (my boss) was the one who always worked on it. He adjusted the action and voicing specifically to M. Horowitz' desires. It was indeed extremely light. The voicing was also "unusual". Many top pianists who tried it thought it was very difficult to control. I remember one who referred to it as "squirrely"

Staying off topic--was that the original action he'd played or the one Steinway replaced it with on rebuild? They threw away his original, but I don't know just when. I've read many complaints from techs about that fact. The way his regulation has been described sounds quite like what I like--very light with letoff very close to the string, just short of blocking.

Here's something I cropped out of a photo I had here at work.


I think I'll go home and play a medley of standards to say good-bye to the CR. This post makes me think of "I'll Be Seeing You", which was always the closing song for the mixers I went to as a college freshman, and a sentiment that I hope holds true for the CR members as well.

I posted what I THOUGHT you had suggested at that time, but I thought you might go over and straighten out what I may have been mistaken about.

Thanks for the help Bob - I apprectiate it. If you could help me find the thread you posted it in, or could let me know what your hand warming trick is, that would be very healpfull Apple*. \:\)

Big Al looks like the kind of man who'd be a great father or maybe grandpa someday ... Friendly and warm.
Now I finally know who Mikester is ... and you're tres cute!
Sarah: You're beautiful but I thought you were older ... must be your sophistication showing through.
Jamie: You and your family look like you enjoy many good times together ... family so important.
Nunatax ... Another great looking man ... (and probably quite married too ;\) )
Lucy and Wacky ... what a great couple ... 12 years is a long time to commit to each other ... Congratulations on your recent engagement.
I'd love to be able to ride a horse again Jodi ... This is a lovely pic of both of you.

Whoa Nelly! Wacky in his BVDs. (a little blackmail perhaps ) Nice pics you two!!

KB, lovely one of you and the Mrs.

Kluurs, you ain't bad either. Quite the buff feller - I dare say you give Johnny's pecs a run for their money.

Jodi, I love yer horsey pictures! (Guys we've already seen a Jodi in the bikini pic - let the girl show some modesty for Pete sakes)

I swear, Michiel, every pic I've seen of you looks almost the same - oh, except the one in which you were sporting a yellow beak. You must be at the Barber's every other day.

Katie your piano pose is wonderful, and I'm glad to know that there *was* a body with limbs behind that quilt.

Sarrah, pretty girl, is that the first pic you've posted here?

Here's an old one (circa 2000 or so) of me (in the back/middle) and my sons Lucas (the artist in blue shirt on the left) and Dan (the pianist in green shirt on the right ).

It was taken on top of the Empire State building when the three of us went there for a week. (a week in NYC, not a week in the Empire State Building ) \:\)



I didn't know ANY of you at that time and I feel very fortunate to have met so many of you since then. ... [jodi]sniff[/jodi]

Sidd, thanks for the picture, helps to have a face to put with the poster.

Elena, you probably will never see this (because you've already gone to bed)
But thanks for your compliments. I DID luck out with her! \:\)

Ivory:
Fine pic, and again, good to have a face. PLEASE keep in touch with me via email or some other means. You've been quite a relief at times here, and have many times spoken to me when you mean to be speaking to someone else.

KathyK:
Wonderful to see a pic of you finally. wish i could've seen one of JF as well, but our days are not over so there is still time.


Everyone else, thanks for the wonderful memories. we've all devoted more time to this place than we ever should've, but none of it will be regretted on my end.

To those I insulted and never meant to: I apologize.
To those I insulted and meant to: I REALLY apologize.
To those I offended, made mad, or in some other way slighted, my humblest of apologies.

I thank each and every one of you for heated debate, gentle discussion, and cozy nights full of laughter.

Some of you I will see in 30 minutes in other forums, and others I may never speak to again. Sadly I fear I will forget some entirely, without catchy screennames, avatars, and cutting-edge wit on a daily basis as a reminder.

You've all carried me through things of which you have no idea, nor should you... and I thank you for it.

Good night, and good fortunes to you all.

That would be why I didn't comment when I first saw the pics. The resemblance is uncanny and I was a bit taken aback. But it's definitely a good thing.
