Re: never-ending gallery

... 'fantastique' coming through the speakers. the symphony was not too bad, but as is often the case, especially with classical music, maybe needs repeated listening before one can appreciate it properly. i also read about it on wikipedia... That's nice that you listened to the Symphonie Fantastiq...

Re: One Very Underrated Song from Every Leonard Cohen Album

Well, these types of lists must be 'flavour of the month' :) If I remember rightly, at least one of the songs mentioned is a certain forum member's album favourite ;-) Oh, yay, another list! Not sure if I am the forum member you are thinking of, but I resemble that remark regarding Ballad of the Ab...

Re: never-ending gallery

... if i stopped a million random people in the street and asked them what they knew about berlioz's 'march to the scaffold' i would be astounded if even a single one of them could supply any info... it would not surprise me if you also had knowledge of shelley's 'tanyrallt assailant', as it is cal...

Re: never-ending gallery

...of berlioz's life and work know next to nothing... Berlioz was quite a character! A good place to start in his music is his "Symphonie Fantastique" -- it is one of his most famous pieces, which is very enjoyable, and comes complete with its own semi-autobiographical story! It is an ins...

Re: never-ending gallery

...as for shelley, he too had a guitar. never played it though, simply gave it to an appreciative girlfriend. we will never know for sure, but part of paganini's ' allegro maestoso ' (1st concerto) could possibly have inspired leonard cohen to write a couple of sentences in one of his novels... in ...

Re: never-ending gallery

...paganini... I have undoubtedly mentioned this before in coversations about Paganini, but I shall mention it again, because I think that it is interesting: in addition to being a virtuouso violinist and writing a lot of violin music, for which he is most famous, Paganini was also an exceptional c...

Re: Buffy Sainte-Marie

It was not a brush off. Yes, there are multiple issues here. One of which is how indigenous people accept new members as full members with full rights and privileges. I hope you can see the options with which others are more open to accepting new family members. The Massachusetts Historical Society...

Re: Buffy Sainte-Marie

...It's very important to remember that she was accepted by the indigenous community. I suppose that it is also very important to remember that, from the beginning of Buffy's career, she told everyone that she was Indigenous -- complete with a personal history that was entirely fabricated -- and th...

Re: The 10 most underrated Leonard Cohen songs

...p.s. Don't you just love the way all journalists generalise? ;-) Ha-ha! Of course, to avoid making unjustified generalisations (mind you, one could argue that most generalisations are unjustified), a person merely has to say, "many, most, some, a lot, quite a few", or even better, &quo...

Re: The 10 most underrated Leonard Cohen songs

Underrated by whom? :roll: Regardless, I think that "underrated" is a poor choice of word for this article's title, for it implies that people know of the thing in question and do not rate it highly. However, the author of this condescending piece of drivel provides no evidence to support ...

absolutely fantastic, both your picture and the interesting article. i am not sure if this is three different poses of the same chickadee or if it portrays three different chickadees. the one on the right is recognisable as the little fellow that perched on your finger, but they all look so lovely,...

Re: never-ending gallery

...stay well, dear friends. you don't emerge from the shadows very often... I am staying well, thank you! I haven't posted any home-made pictures for a while, and so I have emerged from the shadows to do so. Yesterday, I was thinking about the little chickadee friends I met last year, who so bravel...
