This is a bust not only on Hal, but on *ig.

Hal used *ig's copyrighted name, and *ig failed to cite/chrage him for it.

Man, youse guys are slippin' up!

someone aked me why doesn't symphony no. 37 by Mozart exist. from what I found it seems that the symphony once attributed to Mozart as symphony no. 37 is actually by Michael Haydn, to which Mozart wrote an introduction. that's why it doesn't exist. does anyone know more about this? is it true? false? partly true?

Your account is essentially how I understand it. The Symphony, K.444 (I think) was copied by Mozart for use in a concert. At least the first two movements were copied by him and these copies, in his handwriting, were found in his papers after he died. Therefore, it was assumed that this was one of two Linz symphonies he wrote (the real Linz being the other). There is mention in a letter Mozart wrote that he was going to use 3 of Haydn's symphonies at around this time. It was assumed that these were Joseph Haydn's, but most scholars think they were all Michael's. Mozart did write the slow introduction because he thought it would a suitable opening. Several years later Michael's autograph score was discovered in the Esterhazy archives, but this was after it had been erroneously attributed to Mozart.

Some of my facts may be a bit off, but that's how I remember the story, in a nutshell.

They should expand the study and compare musical genre. Heavy metal constricts blood vessel diameter! Who knew? I think they need a larger patient population 'cause I know Heavy Metal gets my blood pumpin'......but the best vessel dialator is still b.com :D

I received a trade magazine today which had an article about Normandy® Guitars, which manufactures aluminium guitars. They make electric guitars, but I was curious about the use of aluminium for acoustic instruments. Low and behold, a little Googling led me to the Aluminum Musical Instrument Company, which made insturments for four years back in the late 1800s.

Image

I also found an article on a performer whose favourite string bass is made of aluminium. I see that these instruments are still popular with some performers, though mostly they are merely a curiosity. I suspect that the company's short life span indicates that they were not successful in winning the hearts of musicians. I was just curious, anyone have any experience with aluminium bass viols, mandolins, lutes, banjos, or guitars?

Electric smelting of aluminium was invented in 1886, and it would have taken a few years to get established commercially. I suspect that aluminium musical instruments were an expensive novelty, and once aluminium became cheap, the novelty wore off.

Peter Gabriel
"Love To Be Loved"

So, you know how people are
When it's all gone much too far
The way their minds are made
Still, there's something you should know
That I could not let show
That fear of letting go

And in this moment, I need to be needed
With this darkness all around me, I like to be liked
In this emptiness and fear, I want to be wanted
'Cause I love to be loved
I love to be loved [x2]
Yes, I love to be loved

I cry the way that babies cry
The way they can't deny
The way they feel
Words, they climb all over you
'Til they uncover you
From where you hide

And in this moment, I need to be needed
When my self-esteem is sinking, I like to be liked
In this emptiness and fear,
I want to be wanted
'Cause I love to be loved
I love to be loved [x2]
Oh I love to be loved

This old familiar craving
I've been here before, this way of behaving
Don't know who the hell I'm saving anymore
Let it pass let it go let it leave
From the deepest place I grieve
This time I believe

And I let go [x2]
I can let go of it
Though it takes all the strength in me
And all the world can see
I'm losing such a central part of me
I can let go of it
You know I mean it
You know that I mean it
I recognize how much I've lost
But I cannot face the cost
'Cause I love to be loved

Yes I love to be loved
I love to be loved
[x3]

I love to be loved
I love to be loved
Yes I love to be loved

RUSH
"Subdivisions"

Sprawling on the fringes of the city
In geometric order
An insulated border
In between the bright lights
And the far unlit unknown

Growing up it all seems so one-sided
Opinions all provided
The future pre-decided
Detached and subdivided
In the mass production zone
Nowhere is the dreamer or the misfit so alone

[Chorus:]
(Subdivisions)
In the high school halls
In the shopping malls
Conform or be cast out
(Subdivisions)
In the basement bars
In the backs of cars
Be cool or be cast out
Any escape might help to smooth the unattractive truth
But the suburbs have no charms to soothe the restless dreams of youth

Drawn like moths we drift into the city
The timeless old attraction
Cruising for the action
Lit up like a firefly
Just to feel the living night

Some will sell their dreams for small desires
Or lose the race to rats
Get caught in ticking traps
And start to dream of somewhere
To relax their restless flight
Somewhere out of a memory of lighted streets on quiet nights...
