|Aug-29-12|| ||HeMateMe: <Dolphins> Ouch! Well, they have had a problem getting it done.|
|Aug-29-12|| ||Wayne Proudlove: The Isley Brothers, ``Spend The Night (Ce Soir)``:
|Aug-29-12|| ||Wayne Proudlove: Albert King, ``We All Wanna Boogie``:
|Aug-29-12|| ||HeMateMe: This is pretty Bitch'n--CCR <Tombstone Shadow>, part of a documentary or television special.|
It's a shame Foggerty didn't write more songs, after Credence broke up. What a great rock n roll voice.
|Aug-29-12|| ||Deus Ex Alekhina: Slippery Rock and Shippensburg hate each other, as do also Grambling and Southern. And Ball State is not too fond of Lance Armstrong.|

|Aug-29-12|| ||Helios727: I noticed on the opening explorer that the Evan's Gambit Accepted has a much greater than average success rate for white. Is that because it is used a lot by masters against amateurs in simuls, or is it really that good of an opening for white?|
|Aug-29-12|| ||technical draw: This great work of art introduced me to classical music exactly 50 years ago. It was just part of a series of music pieces on a stereo demo record. (remember that was 1962 and stereo was just starting). The record had other music put I played this one over and over again and I was hooked. Enjoy and maybe get hooked too:|
|Aug-29-12|| ||WannaBe: That's not Tchaikovsky!! - Piano Concerto No.1 Op.23 in B Flat Minor was by Jo Han Sebastian, who later married some dude named Bach.|
Tchaikovsky did Ugly Duckling Lake, and Napping Women; both in B- Flat Major with 5 sharps, that drove all the players nuts. Especially when the bow pokes you in the eye.
(Maybe Bach did Piano Concerto No. 23 Opus #1 in F Sharp Minor... I always get those things confused.)
|Aug-29-12|| ||Phony Benoni: <WannaBe> Hey, don't Knock the Bach! But, surprsing as it may seem, that is indeed Tchaikovsky's Piano Concerto No.1 Op.23 in B Flat Minor. |
I say surprising because I didn't know <td> could count above 20.
|Aug-29-12|| ||micartouse: <technical draw> Amazing. Tchaikovsky was so great.|
|Aug-29-12|| ||Travis Bickle: Here's some remarkable footage I found of <technical Draw>, a prodigy way back in 1962 listening to that classical piece! |
|Aug-29-12|| ||WannaBe: <Travis Bickle> That has to be <technical draw>, notice that big Mac computer in the background? =))|
|Aug-29-12|| ||Travis Bickle: <Phony Benoni> I wouldn't argue with <Wannabe>'s knwoledge of classical music as he's pretty serious about it. |
|Aug-29-12|| ||Travis Bickle: <WannaBe> Yes I was amazed to see the video marked '8 mil. of technical draw (child prodigy) circa 1962' on youtube!|
|Aug-30-12|| ||HeMateMe: <Tchaikovsky's Piano Concerto No.1 Op.23 in B Flat Minor. > Is that redundant? Isn't B flat already a minor, by defintion?|
|Aug-30-12|| ||Wayne Proudlove: The Horseflies, "Rub Alcohol Blues":
|Aug-30-12|| ||Wayne Proudlove: HMM,
No. B flat's a note.
|Aug-30-12|| ||Phony Benoni: <HeMateMe> Apparently not.|
Don't ask me to explain, though. I'm not a musician, and I have my doubts whether this can be adequately understood by non-musicians. But I do like Bach.
|Aug-30-12|| ||HeMateMe: I feel terrible for those people in Lousianna. They are getting nailed by another monster hurricane. People are driving power boats down streets. It's like living in Bangledesh.|
|Aug-30-12|| ||Wayne Proudlove: PB & HMM,
A classical song's listing has the following information:
the instrument (piano)
the kind of piece (concerto)
the number 1 denotes Tchaikovsky's first concerto.
Op. is short for opus (work). Tchaikovsky's Op. 23 is his 23rd work.
The last is the key; B flat starts on the Bflat note and ends on it. Minor makes it sad-sounding.
|Aug-30-12|| ||Travis Bickle: Please disregard my last post on my choice for Presidential Candidate as there was no visuals of him. Here he is ALICE COOPER for President!!!.|
|Aug-30-12|| ||Shams: <Is that redundant? Isn't B flat already a minor, by defintion?>
Every key is both a major and a minor (actually there are several types of minor keys but we'll pretend there's just one, the natural minor, for each key.)|
Play an octave in C-major from middle C on a piano. All the white keys, simple. Now drop three half-steps and play the same notes, all the white keys, but play the octave from A to A instead. Now it's A-minor.
So B-flat can be major, in which case its relative minor is G. Or B-flat can be minor, with D-flat its relative major, three half-steps higher on the keyboard. Make sense?
|Aug-30-12|| ||Phony Benoni: <Shams> Uh, no. I have several musician friends, and when they start throwing this stuff around I just glaze over and wait for the sky to clear. It's probably the same way they feel when I toss <zugzwang>, <Nezhmetdinov> and <GOOT> into the same sentence.|
|Aug-30-12|| ||HeMateMe: <Wayne Proudlove> I logged on to allthingsclassical.com and tried to find a breakdown of the Sex Pistols, via opus No., major/minor, etc., but their database seems incomplete.|
Don't the Sex Pistols or Ramones deseve an opus?
