Nothing!, I was going to post a new piano bar song, but my new recording software is not working correctly and it wont let me link the music.

Once you start a thread, you are not allowed to deleate it, so now I just have to wait until this falls off the chart while looking like a jack-arse in the meantime!

Hee-HaaW!!

I would like to be the first 1 to point out that this is absurd. No 1 should be picking on Hunky like this. Every 1 should be ashamed. Every single 1 of you should probably give a personal apology for singling him out like this. I mean seriously, is no 1 allowed to make any mistakes around here? This place is like a bunch of 1 year olds…. Oh who am I kidding? I am not really 1 to judge.

So again, let me be the "1"st to apologize :rolleyes:

Number 1
is like a stick
A straight line down
that's very quick!

For number 2
go right around
Then make a line
across the ground!

Go right around
What will it be?
Go round again
to make a 3!

Down and over
and down some more
That's the way
to make a 4!

Go down and around
Then you stop
Finish the 5
with a line on top!

Make a curve
Then a loop
There are no tricks
to making a 6!

Across the sky
and down from heaven
That's the way
to make a 7!

Make an "S"
And then don't wait
Go up again
to make an 8!

Make a loop
And then a line
That's the way
to make a 9!

Make a 1
and then an "oh"
10 are all your fingers
you know!

Also the title of a best-selling compilation album of all Beatles songs that reached number 1[/b] in the UK or US charts (see List of Number 1[/b] Hits (USA)).

The song Green grow the rushes, O has the line " One[/b] and all alone and evermore shall be so."

Juan Crisóstomo Arriaga, Georges Bizet, and César Franck each composed one[/b] symphony.

Ludwig van Beethoven, Johannes Brahms, Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky, Antonín Dvořák, Jean Sibelius, and Edward Elgar each composed one[/b] concerto for violin and orchestra.

There is 1 thing that I would like to point out. I am going to refer you to Exhibit 1 which is on page 1 of this thread. I believe that I was the 1st 1 to formally apologize for my actions. And, after reading through the posts 1 by 1, I do believe that I am the only 1 that actually apologized. Now, I suggest that I should only be charged perhaps $.01 if anything at all. Certainly my fine should be no more than $1.00.

That was the 1 thing you shouldn't have said.

You are 2 well liked by every one to let this rare chance to ping you pass quickly.

One in 3 of your posts make me laugh.

that's rare 4 anyone two have that good of a sense of humor.

I wouldn't worry two much, if this thread gets two page 5 I will be surprised.

Some people say they have a 6th sense about people, I say, humor and quick wit (like you weild) will always make a person noticed and liked.

In the 7 or so days I've been gone I've missed that, you've become kinda like that boisterious and charasmatic cousin that every one wants to hang with.

So don't be 8en if the other kids point and laugh, it's just your turn in the box.

There making fun is B9, if they didn't like you no one would post.

Act like your skin is thick like its made of 10 and they will probably let it pass.

Hunky:
I thought you needed some poetry in your life really bad!
So here's a realy bad poem.


My soul rises up as a mist
my body seems no more
The melody sparkles around and through me
filling the darkness, moving me lightly
taking the want, guiding me slightly
This task no longer a chore
...And I play

Time an place lose meaning
notes tumble out of the air
this breathless place calm an thrilling
tugging my heart,easing the pain
taming the beast that will not be slain
removes the worry an care
...And I play

chords follow faster an faster
notes are dancing like light
it's beauty covers an surrounds me
clear as thunder,soft as a feather
The melody blends, an flows together
My timeless spirit takes flight
...And I play

(Then I wake up, an look for something really big to beat my alarm clock into little pices with!)

Come out an play hunky!
We miss you!

I understand this 1. This weekend, for about 10 minutes, I picked 1 that was like miss mary sunshine (which I am not) - so I will stick with the brooding 1 - I mean, the moon 1. I like that 1.

Hi SC85 and other 1ers - sorry for the late response. To give an intro:

I'm an on-again off-again player. Took piano lessons as a kid, quit after 8 years to pursue the electric guitar (like many early teen-agers). I've been dreadfully regretting quitting lessons ever since, as I slowly watch my skills wane.

I still consider myself an adult beginner because I've developed some bad piano playing habits since quitting as a kid and have become an ear-player. I came to this forum to see if anyone had exercises for scale/chord memorization for the impatient player . As not to plague this thread with an actual subject \:\) I'll look through other thread to pursue this topic (maybe someone can point me to one?)

Anyways, I'm also comparitively green in the forum world, but I'm happy to see such a great group of users with a common passion. Cheers!

That's one[/b] wise decision. You can start a new thread asking for memorization tips; you can also search the archives (click on 'search' at top of the page) for scales, memorization, etc. and you will find a wealth of advice.

You get a little message underneath your Avatar saying 500 post club - ya see.

It's automatic - reallllllly very coooooool! ;\)

It took about a month for my sponsorship level to show up. But, I hate to break it to you, Sharon, once you get your "silver member" badge your "500 post club" badge gets taken away. I guess there's not room for both.

Re: 1 - 04/25/06 09:47 PM

Hmm... I guess this will be post number seventy-ONE for me. I would have to post an awful lot of puns here to reach ONE thousand posts. I guess I won't bother. I am not ONE who is exceptionally prolific at posting. I believe ONE can learn more when ONE listens. As an old teacher once opined, "Nobody ever learned anything while his mouth was running." Or as we more commonly hear in Texas, "shut up, boy and mebbe you'll learn sumpthin'."

That goes in the same category as: "How do you spell this word?" "Well, look it up in the dictionary." That 1[/b] always bugged me. But, I did learn from that wisdom - I learned to help myself to what 1[/b] needs.

Re: 1 - 04/27/06 10:25 AM

Thank you both for the kind wishes. It seems as I get older, though, that a birthday is just another day. My 3 year old son (pictured in my icon) enjoys birthdays so much that it is amazing. How and where do we lose that excitement and wonder along the way? Have you ever met ONE adult who maintains that same sense of excitement about everything in life? What a gift that would be. ONE can occasionally recapture that excitement for a moment or two here and there, but it doesn't last long. I suppose if it did ONE would never get any work done, would ONE?

1 thing that has brought me excitement as an adult is definitely learning to play the piano!!

I think one way to keep it is to post in this silly #1 thread and definitely keep playing and exploring piano. What do you want for 24 hours in a day? (You're child in the pix is adorable). \:\)

Re: 1 - 04/27/06 03:22 PM

"sigh" - not this "one" thread again!!!!

Maybe we could use this concept as a game in the "Just for the Fun of It" forum. It could use some excitement anyway. Some'one' start off with a word and every 'one' add puns on the word. Then we would never have to stop this fun and see everyone's genious creativity even more.

Any 'one'?

Re: 1 - 04/28/06 07:34 AM

One small international incident for a Piano Dad; one giant leap for the UN. Thanks for all the good wishes yesterday. The thing that made it all worthwhile was last night. My wife invited a few people in for cake & ice cream. As they sang Happy Birthday, my 3-year-old brought tears to my eyes (literally) with his off-key singing "happy birthday, Daddy." That One experience makes it all worthwhile.

A movie . . . Believe it or not, the last ONE I saw in a theater was Castaway. That was a long time ago. I've been thinking that Flight 93 might be worth going to a theater for, but my wife thinks that ONE will be too emotionally overwhelming. I'm really not very interested in movies or television, but every now and then ONE comes along that I would like to see.
Posted by: TX-Dennis

Re: 1 - 04/30/06 09:38 AM

One-ce upon a time there was one naughty little boy. When the naughty little boy grew up he became one naughty big man. The naughty man was heard to proclaim thusly, "One day, this one trait will get me into one great big steaming pile of old cobblers." The naughty man thus decided to devote the rest of his one life to doing good rather than evil. While not as much fun, he realized that it was the one right thing to do. Naughty man was thereafter known as Nice Man, one superhero for today's world. People were often heard to remark as he walked past, "There goes one Nice Man!"

OK, here's my one challenge:

EveryONE who wants to should add to the story of the adventures of Nice Man as he endeavors to make our one world a better place to live. This could be fun, does Nice Man encounter Noona's crooked piano tuner at one point during his carrer? Does he remain on the path of goodness and niceness, or will he revert to his former way of naughtiness and non-niceness? What will become of our one superhero along the way?

Re: 1 - 04/30/06 05:34 PM

"Nice man, thank you," the young girl said. "You are, indeed" one[/b] of the nicest men I have ever met."

"Why thank you," replied Nice man. "I think you're Marsha and Jan rolled up in one[/b]."
;\)

With that, Nice man took off to his next adventure...in his purple speedos and cape.

Bump.
Posted by: TX-Dennis

Re: 1 - 04/30/06 10:48 PM

Yikes ... Nice Man needs ONE fashion consultant (at the very least).

The phone rang only ONE-ce before Nice Man picked up. He felt it rude to let the phone ring more than one time. "Nice Man Enterprises; how may I assist you today?" he said.

"Nice Man, I hope you can help me. I bought a piano from a guy on Ebay. He said the piano was German, but I found out it's really Chinese. The piano is not bad, really, and the price was good, but I feel like I've been cheated. Can you help me?"

Nice Man thought about his reply for one moment, and then he said . . .

"There's only one[/b] thing you can do, Clueless eBay Buyer, and that's to issue an immediate challenge to your PayPal account."

"Will I get my money back?" whimpered Clueless Buyer.

"You have maybe one[/b] chance in three," said Nice Man. "But while you're doing that, I'll enlist the aid of my sidekick, Hacker Guy, and we'll figure out who the seller really is and track him down. Then we'll make him one[/b] offer he can't refuse..."

Last night I called home from work. My 3-year old asked me to bring him some crackers. "Which ones?" I said.

"The ones make me strong like Superman & Batman," he said.

"Hmm . . ." I thought, "which ones shall I choose?"
I bought not 1, but 2 different varieties, but, alas, he was asleep when I got home around 1 (am).

Mr. Durango,

I, for one, enjoy the pure silliness of it. But I'm rather a silly person. All of the songs I've written are quite tongue-in-cheek, for example. I haven't written anything in years, though. Perhaps I lost my "muse." The 2 thread is twice as nutty as this one.

On a totally unrelated topic, I certainly have enjoyed my visits to your lovely town over the years. Perhaps one day soon I will return and bring my son to enjoy the hospitality and scenery of southwestern Colorado. Durango is one of my favorite towns to visit.

Re: 1 - 05/18/06 02:07 PM

Yes, you are right Monica. Obviously everyone else wasn't educated in BASIC ALGEBRA. It's clear from the above equations that the 'numbers' 1 and 2 are being used to represent variables, _not_ numerical values. In this case the variable 1 represents the number of pages in the 1 thread and the variable 2 represents the pages in the 2 thread. Substitue the current values of those into the equations and we see that they are perfectly valid.

ie, if:

1 = 13
2 = 6

therefore

1 > 2
and
1 ~= 2*2

I hope my simple explaination has enlightened everyONE. Next week we will be covering polynomial equations and after that on to 3D calculus.

Not me, I am the only 1 that has played the piano at 1 time on my 1 piano. Although some might argue that even I haven't really *played* the piano yet!

tolovemoon - one of the funniest things I ever saw was my mom falling off her end of the bench right in the middle of her and my sister playing some pretty hard four hands stuff. The two of them were always cracking up when they played together like that and 'fought' over the bench. They rarely got through an entire peice without it devolving into a giggle fest. Always highly entertaining!

As I limped through a few pieces this morning on my old warhorse I found myself becoming morose. i believe the cause of this feeling is that the 1 thread has fallen from page 1.

Now perhaps I will play better a bit later.

You know that one saying that goes..
"You'll never know, if you don't go"...
Well one time in band camp...
My one foot had one cramp.
Then one day I tried harder.
I found myself pushing my one farther.
If we stop one now
We will never let one be anything not even a WOW!
So count me as one to decide
to not let one slide...
If there is no one that wants to participate
One can start over with a new slate...
Its all a matter of one's choice..
Every one has one wee little, small, voice...

Do you know how many words there are with the letters one at the end?

to bad 111 is not a prime because then you could only divide it by 1 that would make it really the one to wait for.

101 can only be divided by 1 so that's one page I am looking to be the 1.

3 and 37 are nice primes for anyone

read as binary, it's a prime also !

Re: 1 - 06/30/06 11:38 PM

Once upon a time there was one little girl named Goldilocks. Goldilocks got lost in the woods. Soon she came to one house. She knocked on the door, but not one person was home. Goldilocks tried the one door, and it was open. She went inside and looked around. She saw one bowl of porridge on the one table. "I am hungry," she thought, so she ate the porridge. "My that was one tasty bowl of porridge," she thought.

"My goodness," thought Goldilocks, "I am one tired little girl. I think I will take a nap for one hour." She went into the one house's one bedroom, and there she found one bed. While Goldilocks slept the homeowner returned. The homeowner was, of course, one bear.


The one bear looked around his one house and said, "Oh, my; someone's eaten my one bowl of delicious homemade porridge." The one bear decided to go to sleep as it was almost 1 am. He went into his one bedroom and was about to climb into his one bed when he noticed that someone was already there. The bear, frightened, ran into the kitchen and called the police on his one phone.

One police officer arrived at his door, and the bear told the one officer that someone had broken into his one house, eaten his one bowl of porridge, and was now sleeping in his one bed. The policeman seemed confused. "What's wrong?" asked the bear.

"I think you're in the wrong story. There are supposed to be 3 bears in this one."

"That's not possible," replied the bear, "this is only a one story house."

Heres the link to the one website that lets you support the fight against aids which is a terible one. The orginization asks that you buy and wear one white band so you will support them in their one quest to end aids. This post is not a funny one. It is more "down to earth". Help save our one planet.

Re: 1 - 07/10/06 03:55 PM

Really.......
I was wondering if one was a good oppurtunity place for anyone to share one idea...
One idea, one mind, one can not always do things alone..
One more time, one more line...
One could advertise here with one sign....
This is one good site here for business on the internet.. Communications bringing diversity together and helping our world all in one!
I really like the photography and documentaries in this One World Journey site...

Check out what was number one on the one day you where born.

One logo may not be enough to advertise love, but one could be the one to reach just one more that needs it..

You could learn more about one in wikipedia...

Are you listening to this one?

This is the number one place I like to visit atleast one time a day...

Re: 1 - 08/31/06 03:50 PM

Don't sweat it, Frank. All the navel-gazing and angst over in the main forum is just one[/b] phase it goes through every few months. Threads will get started waxing nostalgic about the PW of the past. Recriminations, accusations, and bitter words are exchanged. Newbies like you and me are made to feel like chopped liver. But eventually all the fuss dies down until it all happens again. I think of the recurring controversy as just another one[/b] of those blocked pores that every once in a while has to spew out icky gunk and then get stopped up again. \:D

Re: 1 - 09/17/06 09:06 PM

Mind and body were originally ONE.

Do not think that the power you have is only the power you ordinarily use and moan that you have little strength. The power that you ordinarily use is like the small visible segment of an iceberg.

When we unify our mind and body and become one with the universe, we can use the great power that is naturally ours.

When we are born we are naturally mind and body coordinated. As we grow older and we see the relative world we tend to see things as dualistic. Because we can see, feel, and touch our bodies and we cannot see, feel, and touch our mind, we forget about the great power that is naturally ours. The truth we seek lies beyond this relative perception.

Not exactly crisp here. About 90 today, but it IS[/b] October 1[/b]! Thoughts turn to Halloween and harvest. I am always amused when I see those pumpkin shaped leaf bags for sale here. The majority of tree leaves in this area do not fall until well after Halloween, so they are all but useless. Perhaps I'll buy 1[/b] anyway and stuff it with old newspapers or something. \:D

mr_S-H,

With your sense of humor and general good-naturedness, I find it strange that you hold such bitter feelings about the member rating system. I'm not trying to confront you, rather to have you treat the ratings with a grain of salt and accept them as a small inset of a much larger picture. You must surely know that you have a boat-load of followers and fans and your contributions to the ABF are immeasurable.

Please reconsider and remember, I'm not trying to touch a "hot" button with you. I just wish to give you the peer-to-peer stars you so richy deserve.

Best regards,
Posted by: Lisztener

Re: 1 - 12/11/06 02:28 PM

mr_S-H,

Then again, let's call the whole thing off. If you had a rating it might make you begin to worry about what you say and how you say it. Best to keep you unchained so you can swing from branch to branch...or leap tall buildings in a single bound...whichever.

Re: 1 - 12/12/06 05:24 PM

This (now infamous) "1" thread has taken on a life of it's own. The way I see it, it has somehow morphed into ONE[/b] of the following groups:

1.) A means to dramatically increase your post count talking about....well, nothing!. Thats okay however, it kind of reminds me of "Seinfeld", one of the most succsessful TV shows ever, all about...nothing!

2.) A place to discuss or comment on just about anything, as this thread really has no topic whatsoever. As long as you mention the number "one", somewhere in your reply, your safe!!

So, it seems that ONCE[/b] again, a few people have pushed my "hot" button on a subject that really bothers me.

I HATE THE "STAR-BAR" [/b]

Why??. Because it's flawed, it promotes innacurate posts and replies and it's a human rating system based on non-quantifiable, subjective, arbitrary criteria! (I know, run on sentance).

Anyway, I simply have a problem judging or rating people based on absolutely nothing other than my own personal opinion of what they "appear" to be in writing.

There is so much more to a person than what could possibly come across on a random internet forum.

Some people say they love me....based on what?... moronic replies and posts?.

Some people proclaim that I really have nothing substancial to offer other than to make light of just about any situation and thereby am just wasting precious bandwidth.

How could anyone honestly really know me (or anyone else for that matter) well enough to actually judge or "rank" them??

When I did have my "star-bar" turned on. I was averaging between three and a half to four stars.

Sometimes this was actually higher than some much more informative and productive members.

I have also been "ranked" very poorly by some members who now I consider to be very good *internet* friends with...(no names mentioned)

Anyway, I have a HUGE problem ranking or judging anyone or anything for that matter, especially without any form of criteria for the basis of the ranking to begin with.

If everyone is so worried about there stupid star-bar ranking, they will not be inclined to accurately of passionately express their honest and un-filtered viewpoints on issues for fear of possibly being "de-moted" !

ANY ranking system that inhibits rather than promotes in full and honest opinions are counter productive in my opinion.

Many have stated before that after being engaged in a "spirited" topic discussion (especially in the main PW forum), that their star-bar ranking had actually gone DOWN due to the disagreement of viewpoints expressed by some others.

No-one should be penalized for expressing their honest and true opinions!, in fact, it should be the contrary!.

To me, it's just very simple. When current members are sorry for the ranking they gave others in the past,.... when members get their ranking lowered after a heated discussion involving varying viewpoints, and when some people have the nerve to rank others based on....NOTHING, you have a system that is very flawed!!

Now, getting back to me to use as an example. (that, plus I like talking about ...me! ;\) ), How could anyone possibly vote or rank a gosh-darn cartoon figure with a crazy name?

Am I really as stupid as I often claim to be?. Could I possibly be a highly intelligent multi-millionaire businessman who has just been playing everybody for a fool?.

My point is, you really don't know and you never will so how could you possibly judge or rank me?

The only thing worse than making a bad or wrong descision is making one based on innacurate or lack of information.

Some would say this is what caused the Iraq war. That is a topic for probably another forum alltogether but it sure makes you think for a moment what harm could be caused to others ensuing from a decsion based on .......well..........................................................................................??????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????? ??????????????????????????!

I beg to disagree with you on some of your assumptions. Within the context of the forums, the rating system is not flawed. It's very close to real life situations where one meets another person in a social setting, has a conversation with him or her, and then comes away from the conversation with a subjective perception of the individual. Based upon the give and take of further face-to-face meetings, one's perception changes for this person over time. After many encounters one gets to "know" this person in the context of their shared interests.

The Internet in general is, admittedly, impersonal, but these forums in particular are another form of social interaction that permits the same observations of human interactions as described above in face-to-face meetings. Just because these forums are on the internet does not lessen their impact.

These forums permit you and me (if we take the time) the opportunity to do a darned good job of expressing the "real" person we are. We not only get to read what the other writes, we also get to hear how they feel through one of the most revealing of human endeavors...our music. We would not have this exchange in this place if this were not a common ground to express some of our inner being. These forums are much more than a random Internet site. This is a specific place that, due to technology, we determine to spend time with like-minded folk who hold this place in cyberspace to be much more than random. This place is held by most in very high regard. Why else would they/you/me give your effort and resources to make it a better place for all?

I'll not comment ohm your personal experiences with the ranking system, other than to say, get over the past get on with the present.

 Quote:

I find a huge amount of information about individuals here. Why not use the context of the forum to serve as the criteria for ratings? Others do, without becoming so angry with its method.

I agree with you wholeheartedly that posters should not be penalized for expressing themselves. You have no problem with it and I don't either.

A few days ago, I didn't have a rating, today I do. You are a much better known person in the forums than I am. I certainly hope that my viewpoints expressed to you will not change my rating, but that is not for me to decide. These forums contain a large number of people with varying views concerning a vast number of subjects. With so many people here, it's inevitable that there are a few bad apples, but we have the responsibility and the opportunity to keep the bad apples from spoiling the forums. If I should lose my rating for disagreeing with you, shame on someone, but I'll still be around.

You know full well that everyone realizes you are a little goofy and you know as well that everyone sees beyond goofiness and the cartoon caricature to the intelligent person you truly are. How do we know that you're not playing us for fools? That's the easiest of all to answer and goes back to the earlier post (just above) where I pushed your hot button. If you are playing us for fools you're doing a darned good job because we believe in you, mr_super-hunky! We have faith that your intentions are good, and we know that your efforts in the forums reflect your innate goodness. We've read your words, seen you and yours in photos, and, importantly, we’ve heard your beautiful music spring from within the depths of your being.

Keep this in mind. This all takes place in cyberspace where no one takes another seriously, where some obscure forum exists for charlatans to parade before our eyes in silly costumes.

This all takes place where I know of 1 person, at least, who will figuratively walk up to you, reach out a hand of friendship, and regardless of your religious beliefs, write the words that come from his heart:

MERRY CHRISTMAS and God bless you and yours,

Lisztener.

Star Song (To the tune of Captain Fantastic and the Brown Dirt Cowboy – Elton John)

Verse 1

End of day reports,
Roughly sketched out,
No-one will read them.
It keeps the shredder in business.
I don’t want to paint a picture,
That no-one cares.
We all just have better things to do.
Than judge one another.

Verse 2

Numbered choices that,
Keep us all apart,
Ancient astrology
And modern computer technology.

And we’re all shouting,
Some laughing,
It’s no laughing matter.
Great balls of fire that
Across the sky are scattered.
Spread out so far that we can’t talk
To one another.

Verse 3

Hector Berlioz,
Maurice Ravel,
The French never recognise their own.
Ill fated assumptions,
Written with the wrong end of the pen.

Cause these tea wearing watch sipping,
Excuses for critics,
The audience liked to take it,
With cakes and biscuits.
And the 21st century concert-goer,
Won’t clap between movements.

Chorus

The stars of the forum,
Come out to play all the time.
With a mountainous post count,
You rocket to fame.

We wander around, to other threads,
We scuttle back with lower scores,
Posting the thoughts that we regret, laying on the silky net and,
Forever coming back for more.

Verse 4

Star-burst rankings with,
Assorted flavours,
Can’t satisfy us.

Where there’s no sugar there’s no way,
To our hearts.

One to one comes friendship and support,
A way of passing time.
Losing some practice.
When we see some angels in the sky,
You’ll know the stars are gone.

Re: 1 - 12/13/06 09:39 PM

Who cares about stars anyway? I don't care if I have one[/b], five, or none. Personally, I only give ratings to people whose work or opinions I respect. I have given five stars to several people who took me to task and/or disagreed with something I said because, well, they were correct, and I was wrong. It's not a popularity contest to me, it's about people who respect each other yet seek to enlighten us when we are wrong.

The people who behave badly may just be having a bad day, or they may truly be antisocial idiots. I choose not to rate them at all rather than to give them 1 star or whatever would indicate displeasure. In the big scheme of things, the stars are meaningless and juvenile. Either use them or don't. It doesn't make you a better person either way.

Now, if we could earn prizes with our stars . . . that would be a different matter! ;\)

Lisztener:

First off, I have to admit that I was extremelly tempted to "rate" you "0" stars after reading your reply.

NO, NOT to be mean or spiteful based on your reply, but rather to illistrate my point to you first hand.

You see,if I did give you a "0" rating, and you did not have dozens (or more) positive rating's to counter the poor one, you will never have a chance to get much more than a 3 or 4 star rating! This is not an "assumption" as you claim my viewpoint to be, but rather a documented fact!

It only takes one person with an agenda or a grudge to spoil it for you!

Disagree with a few of the well known-active members on some of the other forums and watch your current 5-star rating sink like an anchor!
(This is reality!)

As previously stated above, once you rate someone, you CANNOT change it at a later date....EVER!. Just the fact that several members are literally *sorry* for the ratings they had given others stands to validate this point.

I would hope that a ranking system like this would have a way to correct itself or at least update ones ratings of others should their opinions change over time. Unfortunately, it does not. I can't help but think that this in itself is a flaw in the system.

I could go on and on and disect your reply as you have done to mine....sentence by sentence; but instead, I will just acknowledge the fact that we are all entitled to our own opinions. I have mine, and you have yours.

Even if I don't agree with what you have stated, I do respect your opinion and do not want to obstruct it in any way.

The fact that you are willing to *strap on a pair* and confront me on something you know I have an issue with shows your willingness to openly (and publically) exchange your thoughts and viewpoint regardless of the consequences.

This sais more about you (to me) than anything else.

Yesterday you had 4 ratings by other members. You now have 5!

You know I never understood what this thread was all about, and I still don't think I do.

But, I have to tell you that you are in serious trouble, length-wise. Not only is the Nocturne ahead, but the "Totally Devoted to Chopin" will be coming up very fast in the next few weeks, so..... ;\)

Please know that this isn't like the time the Chicks and Dudes almost drew blood over the minutes of practice time (was it for August?).

For 1 time in my life 1 make a mistake and some-one wants to put me in a done-jone with I slice of bread and uno teeney cup of water.

Re: 1 - 12/24/06 02:30 AM

OK, Let me write in "stream of conciousness" mode for a moment, reflecting on a song that comes to mind. The title, I believe, is "One-Ton-a-Mary". It was done in Spanish and was quite popular on the charts, years ago. Anyone else remember this I that I'm thinking of? seems as though the refrain went something like this:

1 ton-a-mary guajira one ton a mary,
1 ton-a-mary guajira one tone of mary.

Now it come back to one me. the one 1 is thinking of Sounds like "Quantanamera". It's truly amazing what one can learn by searching the deep recesses of 1's very own mind. ;\) Let's plod on, OK? OK! That-sa 1 song should-a be Italian instead of-a Spanish, eh? A sweet-a Chunky Italiano with-a one-a song (there were probably many more) written about her. 1'm-a like it-a very much.

Whats-a goin on-a here. I'm-a loose-a my one and-a only marble to make up-a someting for only one-a "1" No-no, I stop-a right-a now. I wanna 2, two, too 1s to sing about not just-a won one 1 OK? OK! 1 had better stop before one is compared too closely to won's avatar.

Even though I'm a little goofy tonight, I want it known that I hear the beautiful music in the forums with two sensitive ears and I enjoy, immensely what I find here. I reside in my own home with my beautiful wife and my piano. What more can a man ask than to be loved by his best friend and share his soul with her through music from his own hands. In addition to children, grandchildren and other loved ones, I am extremely happy to have stopped in here along the path of my life to share moments musical and others with friends who are as close as many within my extended family.

Before I quit this post, please know, everyone, and I am serious, now. I'm just having fun with 1 and have no intention of offending any 1 of any ethnic origin.

Now that it is officially the morning of Christmas Eve (That sounds like 2 days instead of 1, the morning of the evening?), let me be the first one today (tonight, whatever) to wish 1 and all a very

Merry Christmas

After I figured out (or thought I had) what this thread was about, I assumed (my first mistake) that we had to use the word "one" hidden in another word, like "done." :p

But it appears I am one confused person.

So this is my last thread on this one site because the more I write, the thread just gets one more number larger in length, and my heart belongs to one of the other threads...nocture and Chopin lovers, one just as good as the other one. \:\)

Yes, but you fixed it with No. 667, That is ONE big load of replies about nothing in particular. Speaking of nothing, I was once made to write an essay on the subject of "nothing" in school at the age of 14 or so. It was my punishment for acting up in class. The teacher asked what I thought I was doing, and I said, "Nothing." She then told me to write an essay on nothing and turn it in the next day as my punishment for disrupting class. The essay wound up being published in the school newspaper. I wonder if I have one copy of it lying around anywhere . . . Probably not. It was over 30 years ago. \:D

If you don't have the patience (or interest) in reading the entire script, you can home in on the relevant dialog quicker if you search on the word "nothing". Might explain why your earlier comment reminded me of Larry David.

Re: 1 - 01/08/07 11:57 AM

I was going to dig up that Einaudi thread, rocky, and ask you how "Limbo" was going, but I'll ask you on this one[/b] instead.

I got Einaudi's new CD in the mail yesterday, btw. It's got some beautiful tracks, but most of them involve some wicked fast passages, so I don't think I'll be able to play any of them when he gets around to releasing the sheet music. It's also a more orchestrally oriented CD; most of the tracks include strings in addition to piano, and quite a few have some electronica embellishments.

Limbo is one[/b] I am working on...it's not toooo difficult but I've still got a lot of work to do with it. I think his work is above my level...my fingers just won't cooperate!!!

It is the #1 stupidiest thread on the boards here...

which is why some of us here love that 1 thread more than the other 1 threads.

I hope we set a record with it... we need at least 1 new thread length record this year.

Hello! Anyone out there? I feel so lonely.

Once upon a time, long, long ago, (19 years app.) there was a grandy piano down the hall from the lobby of a beautiful hotel. There was a convention going on in a room near the grandy and the doors were open so that one could see that the attendees were nearly finished eating a meal. At this time a piano enthusiast and listener not connected to the convention in any way sat down at the grandy and began to play a piece that he had rounded into good form. Before long, people started streaming out of the banquet room and a few of them (20-25) stopped to listen while this stranger played the Chopin Nocturne Op. 9 No. 2. The player was quite surprised and nervous that a group had gathered to listen to him play. He was a self-conscious sort who played for his own enjoyment and the thought of playing for others frightened him more than nearly anything he could perceive. He continued to play, however, and focused on the beauty of the sound he was making on the heavenly sounding grandy. He finished the Chopin piece and felt as though he needed to run and hide somewhere, but the gathered few began to applaud his performance. He remained at the piano for a few seconds and his nerves began to calm. His feelings gradually changed into a warm sense of accomplishment and joy. You see, as this stranger sat down to play, he secretly hoped that some of the conventioneers might stop and listen to him play. He smiled to the onlookers, got up from the grandy and walked away light-hearted. This was his 1st public performance since he was 12 years old and while playing he was 48 years of age. Now, 19 years later, it makes him feel warm inside to remember the evening when he played what for him was a Chopin concert at Carnegie Hall to a standing ovation.

Memory is sometimes a good friend.

Re: 1 - 01/12/07 04:43 PM

Lisztener, that was one[/b] beautiful story.

20-25 people came out to listen to you and you didn't freak out?! I'm impressed.

When I've played in hotels, nobody has ever clapped for me, but I have had a couple of people come up and say that they enjoyed my playing or ask me what the name of a piece was. And that has always been a nice ego boost.

Re: 1 - 01/12/07 05:06 PM

Wow, big congradulations Copper.

I got my vfr rating nearly 20 years ago and have only logged 9 hrs since!

The airport I used to fly out of always has wicked cross winds and I was horrible at "crabbing" the plane just before touching down.

I was a poor kid at the time and at $70hr plane rental (1989) and $35 /hr flight instructor (again, 1989) PLUS aviation fuel at an outrageous $1.35 gallion back then, I was going to the poor house at a record pace.

I always told my wife that flying was not difficult, but landing could be horrifying with bad cross winds.

If I were to fly today, I would have to start all over again. It was a lot of fun however and I hope you have a lot of fun and be safe.

BTW, my sister has a "mooney" which is a 200mph single prop plane. What a trip to fly that!

Oh, almost forgot..."one"[/b]...had to keep the post legal!

Thanks. I remember you mentioned it, that's why I thought to post it here.

The prices now (includes fuel):
$79 /hour for the C152
$94 /hour for the C172P (vintage 1983)

These are the low-priced planes that I use, I only get to look at the pricey one[/b]s at the other end of the ramp.

Monica,

Smetimes, because of feeling lonely or suddenly remembering something not thought about for years, it feels nice to reflect and share those moments of reflection. Thank you for your kind comments. Naturally, you know I wish you the best, always.

Babs1,

Welcome to the forums and to the one and only "1" thread. Thank you, as well, for your kind indulgence of a senior's reflections. Unfortunately, I let the Chopin Op. 9 No. 2 fall too deeply into a level of memory that is not readily recallable to the fingers. I'll have to start from scratch and relearn it...someday.

Have a great time on the forums,

1 inch tall

If you were only 1 inch tall, you'd ride a worm to school.
The teardrop of a crying ant would be your swimming pool.
A crumb of cake would be a feast
And last you seven days at least,
A flea would be a frightening beast
If you were 1 inch tall.

If you were only 1 inch tall, you'd walk beneath the door,
And it would take about a month to get down to the store.
A bit of fluff would be your bed,
You'd swing upon a spider's thread,
And wear a thimble on your head
If you were 1 inch tall.

You'd surf across the kitchen sink upon a stick of gum.
You couldn't hug your mama, you'd just have to hug her thumb.
You'd run from people's feet in fright,
To move a pen would take all night,
(This poem took fourteen years to write--
'Cause I'm just 1 inch tall).

Let not my love be call'd idolatry,
Nor my beloved as an idol show,
Since all alike my songs and praises be,
To one[/b] of one[/b] , still such and ever so.
Kind is my love to-day, to-morrow kind,
Still constant in a wondrous excellence;
Therefore my verse, to constancy confin'd,
one[/b] thing expressing, leaves out difference.
Fair, kind and true is all my argument,
Fair, kind and true, varying to other words;
And in the change is my invention spent,
Three themes in one[/b] , which wondrous scope affords.
Fair, kind and true, have often liv'd alone,
Which three, till now, never kept seat in one[/b] .

Yes, indeed. Wise words.

Alright Monica, you'll get one[/b] chance more: - the psychology behind this sonnet then? (Please answer in exactly one[/b] thousand one[/b] hundred and one[/b] words).

MUSIC to hear, why hear’st thou music sadly?
Sweets with sweets war not, joy delights in joy:
Why lov’st thou that which thou receiv’st not gladly,
Or else receiv’st with pleasure thine annoy?
If the true concord of well-tuned sounds,
By unions married, do offend thine ear,
They do but sweetly chide thee, who confounds
In singleness the parts that thou shouldst bear.
Mark how one[/b] string, sweet husband to another,
Strikes each in each by mutual ordering;
Resembling sire and child and happy mother,
Who, all in one, one [/b] pleasing note do sing:
Whose speechless song being many, seeming one[/b],
Sings this to thee: ‘Thou single wilt prove none[/b] .’

Since I actually have a job I am paid--and expected--to do, I won't be able to write a 1101[/b] essay on this sonnet, but I WILL give you an excellent one[/b] sentence response:

All the answers to Shakespeare's questions are addressed in an absolutely terrific book I am currently reading, called "This is your brain on music," by Daniel Leviton. I was going to wait until I finished it and then start a thread reviewing it, but I'll give a little bit of foreshadowing... he summarizes all the cognitive neuroscience work on music perception and memory and explains why music affects us emotionally and how it is we are able to differentiate the sound of a piano from a violin and how we organize the soundwaves that hit our eardrums into pitch, rhythm, tempo, etc. Absolutely fascinating, but I have to get back to work before I hit that 1101 word mark despite my best intentions.

Monica, did I count three sentences in your one[/b] sentence response? \:D Perhaps the fact that I am not a Ph.D. has caused me to miscount. I was once[/b] accepted into grad school, but I never matriculated. Life got in the way.

Re: 1 - 01/30/07 12:28 PM

I am often guilty of using extremely long sentences which run on forever and never really say anything of value as this one[/b] is doing at this very moment in time. It is much better style, I think, to use short, concise, sentences whose meanings are clearly understood by any and all who care to read them regardless of the educational levels of those particular individuals in question. \:D

I did learn to write more concisely in college, thanks to a rather curmudgeonly English professor who insisted on short sentences. It seems that I have reverted to my wicked ways over the intervening years.

By the way, Mr. S-H, matriculation always sounded to me like something that shouldn't be done in a public place.

Is anyone watching the Super Bowl? One cool traditional show before the National Anthem was performed by Billy Joel. Billy Joel is one of the first performers to ever perform twice for the Super Bowl.

Billy Joel is a awesome pop rock piano artist.

The Super Bowl game will be broadcast to over one billion audiences worldwide....

Cold as a witch's basebal mitt here too but no snow.

Monday's "New Music Day" here so I'm about to leae behind a page of Ana Magdalena's notebook, and do something TOTALLY different - some Alison Krauss (but that piece is too easy - I'll be done by Wednesday.)

I've got the rest of this month for sitting at home so I'm trying to get in as much new stuff as I can before it's back to the ol 9 to 5 again.

Posted by: CozyWriter

Re: 1 - 02/07/07 12:26 AM

OK so Alison Krauss is being more problematic than I thought. Mostly because there's a difference between what's written on the page, and how the arrangement really should sound, so I'm spending more time "rewriting" than practicing what's there.

But Anna Magdalena is put away and I'm off to a few later waltzes for a change of pace.

Picked up the first syncopated piece I ever played (one so irritating that it's sure to guarantee you an instant $3000 price cut in a piano store if you just STOP playing the song on every grand in the shop!) and BOY are my arms not redy for that.

I'm sitting here wondering how I was ever able to walk and chew gum at the same time \:\)

Oh, and off the keyboard, I secured the URL for my new piano site about the Grand on the way, bloogging, sound clips etc., and got the web hosting set up.... just no pages yet.

But since there's no piano yet, either.... (But I need to start writing the "content" part anyway.)

That's a day!

Coming off a week when I was doing good to get one thing accomplished between naps.

It's good to see a day pass with three or four things ticked off the list!

Posted by: CozyWriter

Re: 1 - 02/07/07 11:29 PM

Ah... Norah Jones. I went over to musicnotes.com and added "Come Away With Me" to my wish list for a future "New Music Monday" buy.

While I was there, I took a look at what they had for Diana Krall too, and theonly thing I could come up with was "Besame Mucho" - that arrangement was a little too peppey so I'll have to slow it down and Jazz it up a little more. Teh demo sound wasn't at all like I'd expect her to sing it.

I also ordered up a copy of Hanon today from amazon (I'm cooked noodles to peer pressure) so I can see how it plays, compared to Czerny which I use now (when not dealing with ham-handed attempts at syncopation.)


I didn't get in my full hour today - energy wa up and down - but at least fingers DID touch keys in more than a random pattern.

Upon a forum thread.
When asked what he was doing here,

But more and more came everyday,
To see this grand new land.
In ones, and twos and threes and fours,
And Fives, hand in hand.

There was no thought of going back,
I guess they're here to stay.
But locals don't want company,
And tempers start to fray.

Let us live in peace they pleaded,
We're here to help you see,
Which topic's worth a closer look,
And where that thread may be.

We'll work for you, and sweat and toil,
Without one cent of pay.

To my partner and best friend for 22 years.....so glad your suffering is over, one day we will meet again.....

One More Day[/b]
(Steven Dale Jones/Bobby Tomberlin)

Last night I had a crazy dream
A wish was granted just for me
It could be for anything
I didn't ask for money
Or a mansion in Malibu
I simply wished, for one more day with you

One more day
One more time
One more sunset, maybe I'd be satisfied
But then again
I know what it would do
Leave me wishing still, for one more day with you

First thing I'd do, is pray for time to crawl
Then I'd unplug the telephone
And keep the TV off
I'd hold you every second
Say a million I love you's
That's what I'd do, with one more day with you

One more day
One more time
One more sunset, maybe I'd be satisfied
But then again
I know what it would do
Leave me wishing still, for one more day with you

Leave me wishing still, for one more day
Leave me wishing still, for one more day

There are people I would trade away everthing for just one more day. It is sad we do not always feel that way when it doesn't matter.

So sorry for your loss, and glad that any physical pain is over. And I love your poem/song.

Re: 1 - 03/29/07 07:39 PM

I played one[/b] beautiful rosewood Steinway B today. I'm in Boston for a conference, and when I asked the hotel if they had a piano customers could play, they snittily said "only if you reserve the Presidential Suite" (which I most definitely did not). So I walked to the only piano store I could find in the phone book in Boston, Steinert's, told them I was visiting from out of town and not a customer, but could I play anyway? And they very graciously said yes.

I loved the sound of the piano but found it very hard to play after my M&H. The action was much lighter, and the keys felt very different.

So now I have managed to fill my MOYD commitment. \:\)

Re: 1 - 04/13/07 05:42 PM

hmm, you'll know, I'll share this with you as it seems the perfect thread:

Discovery Kids the TV channel has several educative animated sketches during commercials in which the background music is eletronically adapted classics like Mozart's K545, Bach's Minuet in G etc. The sequences either show similar colors or similar numbers.

1 of them depicts number 1 everywhere to Bach's First Prelude for WTC 1 playing on background.

It's funny because everytime I play some sad piece on the piano, my daughter asks for: "Daddy, play 1!". She calls it the 1 song. :p

What to put in your signature line is one[/b] tricky decision, all right. For a long time I had a very nice quote by David Lanz, which I properly attributed. The only problem is that people saw my signature line and started calling ME David Lanz, creating countless confusion and no doubt some consternation to the real David Lanz if he saw it. So then I switched to the boring proclamation of piano and serial number. \:D

As for Buxtehude, I don't know what happened to him. He tended to get engaged in some rather sharp exchanges of opinion. Maybe he got ticked off and fled the forum.

It's been a bit quiet in here, so I thought I'd help the push towards one thousand posts with these lyrics to the tune of "America" by Simon and Garfunkel: ;\)

Snowflakes are falling on cold speckled pavements in Boston,
I hear the Celtics are winning again,
so I open a frozen meal, and tune the TV,
and log onto Piano World...

Pick up my papers and vaccume the bedroom this morning,
I've got so many assignments to do,
But I do my practice on Chopin and Liszt
and log onto Piano World...

It's always there,
It never changes.
Calling my name with such wit and a smile.
What's painted yellow and where is my topic?

Can he remember commitments he's made in his diary?
He has to pick up his friends from the game.
And the kitchen needs cleaning,
and he'll check all his mail,
and log onto Piano World...

Hiding in darkness her parents won't see her for now,
The time's slowly creeping past 2am,
Footsteps are coming she hides in the blankets
and logs off Piano World...
and logs off Piano World...
and logs off Piano World...

It's that "/" and "etc." that was giving me conniption fits, eternal. \:D "Mobile" and "portable" certainly fit, as do other words (and if you consider "variable" to be a noun, that opens up a whole new set of possibilities).

Hunky had originally called the thread something else, Tenuto, but when he couldn't get the recording to work and he deleted the post, he couldn't delete the subject heading (you have to have a heading for each thread). So he just changed it to "1" to put something there.

IT specialists called in to troubleshoot the problem ultimately traced the breakdown to a sudden surge of people attempting to add a post to a popular internet forum, Pianoworld.com. Said one expert, "Apparently they were all trying to be the 1000th poster on something called the "1"[/b] thread." He shook his head in exasperation as he excused himself to continue efforts to restore internet service to the continental United States. "And here's the ironic part... there wasn't even a prize involved."

I am one[/b] proud mom tonight as my son was named MVP of his tee ball game, on the basis of a brilliant fielding play in the outfield where he stopped what looked like a sure home run and held the runner to first base.

...but the best play of the night was our superstar first baseman, who made a TRIPLE PLAY single-handedly (caught a pop fly, tagged first before the runner could get back there, then ran all the way across the diamond to tag 3rd before THAT runner could get back). He should've been MVP but he's already won it, and the coach likes to rotate the honor.

Tee ball is a riot. \:\)

Oh, boy, am I glad Monica Kern posted this back into existance. I just joined in June and totally missed it. What fun! 39 pages of fun!

loveschopintoomuch wrote in "Ow - Shoulder Pain" on 6/23/07: "Artur Rubenstein is like a zombie at the keyboard. No outward signs of emotion. However at a certain section in Grieg's piano concerto, he did raise his right eyebrow about 1 centimeter."

So, I tried it: it's my left eyebrow that lifts, I cannot move my right one. Then I asked someone and they can't lift either eyebrow separately, only together. What do you think this means?

The question: when you life one eyebrow, which one is it?

I love it that you have all the right words - hemispheric dominance. I agree it's something like that, but why? No, I'm right handed but two of my 5 children were LH. Their father is RH and he is the one who can only raise both eyebrows.

You have this aced! I'm impressed with your versatility. Now, add, limbs - arms,hands,legs, feet for Rhythm - Rhythm Helps Your Two Hips Move! (mnemonic)(Gotcha?)

I'm really interested in why a person can raise one eyebrow or another, or can't raise only one, must raise both together. The reason has to be interesting and mean something - like a "clue".

Re: 1 - 06/25/07 02:11 AM

Certain people can raise just one eyebrow at a time. They are usually up to something, evil, or sneaky. If they rub their hands together, or even worse, make a muahaha sound as they do this......RUN!

Posted by: Betty Patnude

Re: 1 - 07/05/07 11:00 AM

I better correct that for the "purists"! I can lift the left, and the illusion is lowering the left so that the right is higher. Meaning of course, that only the left moves by itself. Both move in tandem of course.

I better get left and right sorted out before I get in the car this morning.

We were having a discussion before of that does the lifting of one eyebrow indicate neurologically, etc. Any ideas?

Hey Hunk,

Good to see you posting in the thread. Ultimately, it's better to hear from you any time rather than have you try to time a post to be a particular number.

If "dore-dummy" doesn't delete his childish post, I believe one of the moderators should delete it. I would certainly hate to see the forum go down the slippery slope that his type of post may start.

I hope all is going well with you and yours and that you will be ready to enter the upcoming recital.

Even if I did make the 1000 post on this thread, I would have dedicated it to you. But then again, if you think about it, this is a ridiculous thread about nothing so that may possibly discount the honor a bit!.

In any event, it's members like Monica, Listener, TX-Dennis, Betty, Rocky and others who make this nutty thread so much fun.

Occasionally, there is a parasite that rears its ugly head, but as with most pests, they soon become erradicated by the rest of the colony!!.

Monica is such a wonderful role model and always seems to be able to turn something nasty around in the blink of an eye and keep it going in a positive manner.

BTW, Listener, It was good speaking with you yesterday; thanks for the "wake-up" call!!.

I am one[/b] unhappy camper tonight. Over the course of the weekend, I videotaped an entire mini-disc of me playing various pieces because I wanted to become one[/b] of the narcissistic YouTube generation. But when I went to play the video I discovered that each and every single piece has distortion on the high/loud notes.

So now I gotta figure out how to adjust the mic level on my videocamera and do it all over again. Shucks and other comments.

One solution may be to record with your zoom and and sync it with the video.

Re: 1 - 08/23/07 01:53 PM

The concept of the "ONE Minute Manager" is pretty helpful when applied to piano practice for those who are finding it hard to find time to practice.

Or, you could say just ONE more measure, ONE more time, and that helps eke out a few more determined minutes of piano practice when you think you don't have time to play.

ONE posting at a time, the topic of "1" has grown to 42 pages of posts over a 16 month period of time (thanks Akira for the statistics) and I'm suggesting that your practice time can greatly increase by making use of small minutes - when they accumulate over time - they are significant.

I think the 1 thread is an appropriate off topic place to post this!...

I've been pretty busy with things lately and haven't been posting on the forums for a while, but I did submit a piece for the recital (albeit recorded a little while ago!) I will also get around to commenting on the pieces; though it may take some time, it will get done!

I took and passed grade 4 with 115 out of 150 which I'm very pleased about (according to the certificate that makes me officially intermediate \:D )

I'm also buying a stage piano soon for when I go back to university. My Clavinova is too heavy to keep moving around every term. I'm looking at the P140 for a portable piano, it looks great!

So when I go up to put my son to bed, he's got a guilty look on his face and he says "I'm sorry, Mom." Sorry about what? I ask. "I'm sorry about your contact." I go into my bathroom and see my contact lens case open, and one[/b] of the tiny, practically invisible, and extremely expensive (I wear gas permeable lenses) contacts missing. Apparently he got into my case and was playing with it and dropped it... and rather than calling me right away, he wadded up the bath mats and tried to find it himself. Who knows where it's at. Or in how many pieces.

Sigh. Kids do the darnedest things. :p

He's 8. And he's a good kid. I'm a lucky mom.

The neat thing is that I finally found the contact. It had lodged on top of the little lip of one[/b] of the drawers in the cabinet, very hard to see. That saved me 1[/b]50 bucks, phew!

Re: 1 - 11/02/07 11:27 AM

I used to wear gas perm lenses too, and have lost (and managed to find!) a few. Mine seemed to have a knack for "pinging" right out of my fingers and landing in the strangest of places.

Sorry to hear that, tryryche. I am having one of those days at home. I had the day off, and I was looking forward to spending some serious time at the keyboard. Severe back pain and the fact that my kid stayed home from preschool today with a sore throat put a damper on those plans, though. I did manage one or two short sessions, though.

Columbus is the home of Rotolos. At one point back in the late seventies and early eighties it was voted the best pizza in town by the newspaper's restaurant reviewer.

Bacon pizza really is the best. And I agree the bacon has to be pre-cooked. The sprinkled bacon bits can't compare to real strips of crisp bacon. That is the best ONE.

30 years ago I bought a lot of bacon pizza from Dominoes in Ann Arbor, but now I like like the lighter Brick Oven Pizza from places like Bertuccis or Carabas.

Re: 1 - 02/05/08 10:59 PM

Since this is the one[/b] place to post anything, today I am gonna post the most insane video of the most insane sport I have ever seen.

This is a video about "wing-suit" base-jumping.

It is a newer sport in which sky divers wear a specially made human "flying squirrel" type suit which enables them to literally fly with exacting precision at over 100mph. This is just nuts!.

If you want to see more video's like this one[/b], just google "mounain wing suit" and there are tons more youtube video's like this.

This is absolutely insane but gosh does it look like a rush!.

BTW, One of the main wing suit jumpers is currently trying to perfect a *stall* type of landing in where he never needs to open his chute to land but simply glides until he runs out of speed and then stalls out to a soft landing.

I guess "simply" may be a bit of an understatement!.

Anyway, the guy working on the *stall* move almost has it down and now only jumps with a very small reserve chute and will soon wean off chutes altogether!. SOO nutz!.

Re: 1 - 02/06/08 03:43 PM

Rocky & Rosanna:

You guys are animals...ANIMALS I say!. \:D

I always wanted to go skydiving but could only imagine pulling the chute open and just a bunch of forks and knives come out like in the cartoons!.

I did do the next closest thing years ago and that was to go parasailing on a 500 foot long line. The nice thing was that the chute is already open and the boat just lets out the line and up you go. The view from hanging by a parachute at 500 feet is absolutely breathtaking.

I think parasailing is a great way to get the thrill of skydiving without worrying about the chute opening!.

Btw, Rocky & Rosanna, did you guys happen to get any pics of your jump?....(your both nutz!).

I know I have one[/b] or two photo's...although I'm going to have to search for them. I jumped 30 years ago!! Yikes...I can't be that old!!

I thought I had told this story here before, but since I'm getting old it is ok to repeat myself.

On my number one[/b] jump....from the time I reached out to hold onto the wing of the plane until the chute opened, I believe I blacked out.

Then, the sensation of floating slowly to the earth while looking out over the countryside was absolutely great!! Next thing you know, you are getting closer and closer to the ground and seem to be going faster and faster.....and so you remember all your valuable training on how to land......you are prepared.....and then....

**SPLAT** You hit like a ton of bricks and collapse on the ground. Next thing you know you are in the emergency room having torn all the ligaments in your ankle and are in horrible pain.

Time passes....you decide I have got to show people I can skydive without injuring myself. So you put on your brave face and hold onto the wing of that plane again...let go...float down....and then.... *splat* ... it still wasn't fun landing but I did it without hurting myself.

Next, I retire from skydiving.

Parasailing has always sounded fun, but I have yet to try it.

I'm also gonna bungee jump one[/b] of these days!

Yea, Sorry about that. I for one[/b] should know that!.

Rocky, the nice thing about parasailing is that you don't have to land. After the ride/flight whatever you call it, the boat has a winch that just reels you slowly back in onto the deck and all is well.

As far as bungee jumping goes, I had a neighbor years ago that did it and went into shock as a result. Also had to change his pants!.

That just does'nt appeal to me!.

Mr. SH,
I don't have one[/b] (Phew BB Player, glad I got the one[/b] out of the way) single picture of my skydiving, which was about 20 year ago.

Somewhat similar to Rocky, when I jumped out, I had a total lack of orientation, sensation etc. It wasn't a black-out, but more a white-out - strange. Then there was this big jerk when the chute opened - you're suddenly lifted up really fast. After that, actually there wasn't any sensation of falling as the rate of fall vs the horizon and the ground somehow didn't give a sense of my change in altitude. It was really nice and peaceful. And luckily, there was no splatt!

Re: 1 - 02/08/08 01:39 AM

OH MY !!!!

Wonder how many of those guys died developing that winged suit. That is going to make base jumping with a chute obsolete.

Once Kiteboarding came out, windsurfing has calmed quite a bit.

My skydiving jump was a lot like Rocky's, hanging off the wing and letting go, except my landing was good, like jumping off a picnic table. The thing that made it only one jump was the plane we jumped from crashed afterwards. The pilot was hotdogging and didn't make it from a stall manuever. It's quite a high fatality sport, if you talk to people who do it regularly.

I bungeed off a hotair balloon, surprisingly good rush. Somehow, jumping into hard ground and trusting some rubberbands is a good idea.

Surfing a big day on North Shore is quite extreme as well. Although now they are towing into 40+ foot waves. Even when I was younger and in better shape , I wondered if the near drowning experiences is worth it.

Lost my edge when my kid was born :p Things can go bad in a split second of hesitation. I try to take a more calculated approach these days. \:D

Re: 1 - 02/08/08 07:02 PM

Polostrings:

You've obviously got a wild hair (or ten!), maybe we could possibly get you into one of those flying squirrel wing suits?.

Actually, I don't think that "wing-suit" flying would be all that dangerous if they just flew around the sky without buzzing the mountains and tree lines...(flying under bridges too!) but like the guy in the video said, they all started to get bored!.

If they just jumped out of the plane (or mountain top), stayed FAR away from the mountains and tree lines (bridges too!), and simply flew around for a while, that would be SUCH an incredible rush. Then at a safe elevation, pull the chute cord just as normal and land......(mind you, I am saying all this while safely typing from my keyboard with both feet firmly planted on the ground! ;\) ).

Btw, if you all want one[/b] more video to equal this one[/b], I'll look up the guy who mounted a small pair of turbine engines onto a pair of motocross boots, jumped out of a plane and ignited the boosters and then flew all around the city just like superman!.

It was SOOO nutz!. I think the guy flew all around the city of Chicago just like you would imagine superman would until his hot water bottle (which was strapped to his stomach and used as a gas tank) ran out of gas.

I'll try to find it later as my wife went shopping and I'm gonna eat a bunch of junk food before she gets back!. I don't want her to catch me as I'm always preaching to her about it!.

Re: 1 - 02/09/08 03:12 PM

Okay, looks like it's time for me to throw in my two cents' worth. While I'm not ONE of those fearless (crazy?) people who would actually have the nerve to jump out of an airplane, I did go parasailing ONE time in Mazatlan and it was ONE big rush! However, unlike Mr. S-H, I was not winched back in. I had to pull -- hard -- on ONE of the lines attached to the sail until it lost some of its loft, at which time I was able to gradually drift down to the beach for a landing. Only later did I learn that at least ONE other person had recently landed on the roof of ONE of the beachside hotels.

And while on the subject of good pizza, UNO in Chicago has gotta have the best pie I've ever tasted!! As my parrot would say, "Yum, yum, yum!"
Posted by: Mr Super-Hunky

Re: 1 - 02/09/08 07:18 PM

Blues babe:

I've heard that decades ago they used to launch people from the beach parasailing and then have them land back on the beach as you've described.

I think they have since outlawed that due to too many people screwing up the landing and now they use a winch system in which you "take off" from a platform on the boat and just float up. After the ride, the winch simply reels you in and you end up right back on the platform. Really nice!.

The only problem I ever had was parasailing in Lake Havasu in which the boat driver thought it would be fun to dunk me in the water.

What he did was slow the boat down and I slowly descended until my feet touched the water and then he was SUPPOSED to "gun it" wide open throttle to quickly lift me back up again into the air.

They do this all the time to unsuspecting patrons. Anyway, just as he supposed to punch the gas, another boat cut in front of him thereby preventing him to move at all.

Needless to say, I got plunked into the water with a full parachute canopy coming down on me !.

Fortunately, the boat operator realized the immediate need to pull me out quick before the chute landed on top of me in the water and he did.

Without going into great detail, the bottom line is I finally did make it back up into the air but NOT without a super-sized enima !!

Tip: if ever going parasailing, tell the operator NOT to dunk you; no matter what!!

And unlike polostrings, the parachutes used when I made my jumps were the old round type chutes....you didn't have much control over them like the square chutes which are able to let you come in for a soft landing!!
Posted by: polostrings

Re: 1 - 02/09/08 09:31 PM

I for ONE took ONE too many head jarrings during my activities. My wife nicely pointed that out.

The canopy is much better than the old round chutes. The method there was to roll, right? All I had to do is pull these handles at the right time. Looks like the future will be no chutes at all, but the wing suit. Wow

Re: 1 - 04/07/08 04:57 PM

Monica,

You've been around here longer than Frank, it seems. :p Congratulations on being one[/b] tremendous blabber-mouth. \:o You know I'm teasing you. \:\) Truthfully, You sure have contributed an enormous amount of friendliness, good sense, warm welcomes, sound advice and, above all, some of the most beautiful piano playing this side of heaven's gate.

I wish you 10,000 more posts for all of us to enjoy. \:D

You are number (1)[/b] in my book. \:\)

Regards,

Lisztener

Re: 1 - 04/07/08 07:30 PM

SUPER-congrats Monica . 10,000 posts is insane!.

You surely are the one[/b] to beat, [but that is almost inconceivable!]

I hope Frank gives you some type of keepsake for reaching this milestone. If not, I'll send you some chocolates or a home depot gift certificate, (your choice). \:\)

I know it's a little late to think of doing this, but I think others have already started. I'll try this one[/b] time, anyway, until I forget to do it. \:D

Have you ever wondered just how many posts you've entered since a particular post from the past? I think it might be helpful to number them for contextual purposes. Goofy?
Posted by: TX-Dennis

Re: 1 - 04/14/08 10:20 PM

I, for one, think it is the quality that counts rather than the quantity. In your case, Lisztener, the quality is always there. Your posts are clear and literate, whereas some of mine tend to be a bit jumbled. \:D No slight to Monica intended. Her posts are always well done as well. One would expect no less from a professor, though. ;\)

Re: 1 - 04/15/08 11:28 AM

What a PITA it would be, and often just be in the way to try numbering each post...Goofy! \:o

Faggedabahdit!

Thanks, Dennis, but I've never noticed anything jumbled in your posts, even when the mod-squad is chasing you. \:D

Today as my colleague and I were making our daily starbucks run at the student center, I dragged him off to where they have one[/b] beat-up Steinway D in the corner, and I made him sit and listen while I played "I giorni." There were maybe 7 other people sitting around in chairs (er, when I started... slightly fewer when I finished \:D ), so I was able to chalk up one[/b] more public performance experience.

\:D Yes, but I won't say how many! \:D When I asked my friend what he thought of it (he is not into music of any sort and had to be dragged kicking and screaming into listening to me), his one[/b] comment was "it was LOUD!" \:D

As one who has visited and contributed to the 1 thread semi-regularly, I must say that you, Tenuto, are one who has violated her own new one thread "rule." \:D I, for one, think that the one thread is semi-sacred. No new rules allowed. Therefore, I conclude that you did not break the rules, after all.

Oh, wait, you didn't put 1 in that last post. That is the one rule that has been enforced in the one thread from the beginning. In order to make amends you must make one post to the one thread every day for one month. Or is it one year? \:D

Yes, that is one[/b] really scary problem. We have fire problems around here, too. However, we finally got a bit of rain recently, and it may have helped at least for a bit. I think we now have received 1.5 inches total for the year thus far. Average here is a paltry 14 inches or so annually, but this one[/b] and one[/b]-half for half a year is truly ridiculous. I guess we are paying back for last summer which was a very cool and wet one[/b], at least for this area.

I got one[/b] nice compliment today. We are getting our kitchen renovated so I had to stay home while the carpenter worked on the cabinets. So of course I took advantage of the opportunity to play the piano. \:\) After about an hour the carpenter came looking for me to ask a question, and when he saw me at the piano he did a double-take and said "That was YOU playing? I thought you had put some music on the stereo!" And then he asked me to write down the composer and names of the pieces so he could look them up on iTunes, so I think I created another Einaudi fan... \:D

Re: 1 - 10/18/08 12:34 AM

Okay monica, I have this cat that I found 10 years ago as a tiny kitten curled up in a ball along with 2 baby bunnies under a swimming pool equipment pad.

He, although we thought he was a she for 6 mos! turned out to be a purebred ragdoll cat.

Obviously someones pregnant cat got loose and gave birth to her kittens under the pool equipment pad. [We're still not sure where the 2 baby bunnies came from but they were there too!].

Anyway, I decided to keep the single little cat as a pet and left the bunnies alone as they were being fed by their mother.

This cat has always been a real scaredy cat and afraid of everything (the vacuum IS the devil!).

He only comes to visit us at night in which he demands pets.

Lately, he has started to constantly meow-yelp throughout the night like he's actively pursuing something. This is something new that he's never done before. He has been doing it now for almost 2 months.

I must say that he (Mia,....we named him when we thought he was a girl so now he is Mr. Mia!] seems to be happier then ever while "on the prowl" at night. Mia is fixed and 10 years old so I would'nt expect this but maybe he is having some type of kitty mid life crisis and feels he needs to explore and prowl about; who knows.
Posted by: Monica K.

Re: 1 - 10/18/08 10:59 AM

Hmmm... that is one[/b] strange cat, hunky... but it's also one[/b] great story of how you found him.

Cats are nocturnal so it's not surprising he's more active at night. But any dramatic change in behavior usually suggests something is going on. You might want to bring him to the vet; maybe he's not feeling well and this is his way of telling you, though that doesn't seem likely given your statement that he seems healthy. Or, maybe you have had a family of mice move in and he's really spending the night trying to catch them (though you'd think he'd be able to catch one or more of them and you'd see the evidence).

But now that you've described it more, I'm sure it's not the hairball thing. When cats are working on a hairball, it sounds like a raspy cough/bark, but it doesn't last all night long and it doesn't go on for two months.

My cat starts meowing around 3:00 am every night, btw. I just throw her furry butt outside (if it's warm) or in the basement (if it's not).
Posted by: Lisztener

Re: 1 - 10/18/08 01:28 PM

Monica & Hunk,

I emit, so I guess I'm nocturnal, too. \:o It's a good thing that I don't have one[/b] cat because we also have (1)[/b] microwave oven and you both know what happens to cats who live in houses with people like me. (Not really...I'm teasing). :p

Throughout the last 26 years of my employment my work schedule was from 6:00-6:30 P.M. until 2:00-2:30 A.M. By the time I got home and unwound it was 4:00-5:00 A.M. My metabolic clock and circadian rhythm stayed the same (I'm not complaining) and I don't get to bed for sleep usually until 4:00 A.M or later. The only problem with these hours is that two or three times per week I must get going early in the morning. Many times (if I get home from running errands early enough) I'll take a nap in the early afternoon and sometimes this leads to sleep problems. I just wait until sleepiness overtakes me and then go to bed. Sometimes I get back to sleep sometimes not...but I cope. This morning I was on the computer until 4:00 renaming some pictures from my new P&S camera I bought earlier in the week. The computer with PW and other sites, and my digital piano help to keep me interested till time to hit the sheets many nights.

Good luck with the remodel, Monica, and keep your barking cat out of the microwave, Hunk. \:D

This is a good thread to engage in some shameless O.T. lobbying for votes. My contractor, who evidently is not busy enough working on my house renovation, always decorates up a storm for Halloween. He'll get hordes of people driving by, and on Halloween itself will have 450-500 kids come by for trick or treating.

This year his house was chosen to be one[/b] of the three finalists for the Today Show's "Best Halloween Decoration" contest. You can see the three nominees and cast your vote here:


Today Show Halloween Decoration contest

*ahem* I would never try to stuff a ballot box \:D , but in case you're curious, my contractor's house is House #1[/b]. The picture doesn't really do it justice. It's a spectacular display in person (and funny, too--lots of skeletons in amusing poses/costumes).

I've been so busy this month that the one[/b] and only Halloween decoration at MY house is a plastic skeleton hung on the door.

Kudos to MSH for getting it going. I haven't read it all, but I did read page 1 to understand it's origination.

Does anyone else think it's pretty neat that I got my recital piece "Una Mattina" in as the 1st entry of the recital? I think that spot fits the song pretty well myself. Even if I could make a different recording I don't think I could give up such a perfect spot for it.

On an unrelated note, I mowed the lawn for the first time this year. One down, many more times to go...

Despite us being one week away from the one month to recital thread I managed to get one good take with audio recording only. Work on a take with video should begin shortly. There is really no better feeling than getting that first good take down. I was able to somewhat effortlessly record two other decent takes today. Once you know you can do it there seems to be so much less pressure applied for subsequent takes.

I used to know a guy who worked at a classical music station. One day Patrick Stewart was an in-studio guest. This was right around when he was still playing Capt. Picard on Star Trek.

They made up a special playlist and asked him to introduce the pieces as they played them. According to my friend, the staff at the station, knowing that Picard often referred to his first officer as "Number One," made a point of making sure every title had "No. 1" in it -- just to make him say it over and over.

this thread is a tonic for a stressful day. Thank you for all amusing graphs, radio stories... Maybe I should just hang out on ABF, and have a rest from conversing with all the well educated intellectuals on other forums - mentally exhausting and you have to watch what you say crazy

Gyabeaux, are you doing grade one? what theory exam are you preparing for? good luck for it! And now to play one scale, over and over. Off to practice see all you musicians later.

This is one heck of a thread! I'm in the process of printing it one page at a time, so I can hang it on one of my goals?

Did I do good for a first timer here?
