It sounded familiar when I heard it for the first time (especially the third movement...sounds a bit baroquish to my ears). I might have seen the commercials, but don't distincltly remember the tune. The album came out in the mid 90's.

Just search through the archives and you will get some interesting insights into the nature of this piece from barfle IIRC. ;)

Hmm...you want me to decide? I thought it was more like 'Anyone interested, do it'. :D I'd most happy to pass on the responsibilities to Big™Jon.

I'm up to my bee-hind in alligators right now, so it is unlikely that I will be able to devote sufficient time to a 30Q to make it work. Perhaps later. Thanks for thinking of me, but I only ask the same question in every contest. :P :D

Thanks! I knew I was getting close, but I haven't been keeping track this week. I found out yesterday that my contract is not getting renewed, so this log-in name will probably go dark in the near future unless I can get it transferred to my Gmail account. I may have lots of time to research a 30Q then. <sardonic grin>

Bummer, Jon. Good luck in finding a new position. And, if I were in the situation you're in, I just might decide to let the alligators win.

You can change your email address in your beethoven account, but it's a pain. There was some kind of email message to be sent to the new address, and in the meantime you are locked out. Only tried it once, when they stopped giving away free email accounts.

I first heard Palladio on an airplane during those days when I was often on the road 45 days in a month. I wrote it down in my notebook as something to look for, and I would guess it was a year later that I found the note and ordered the CD.

Then, I recognized it from the commercial.

My pride prevents it. Besides, I may return one day, soon.

I'm familiar with the pain because I administer the same kind of forum.

This was a fun game....too bad I missed most of it, but I plan on "playing" in the next one!!

Oh, and for everyone that helped me with my music anaylsis stuff last semester, I think there are a few of you that played this game that helped, I got a B in the class!!!! That's better than I thought I was going to do, so thanks for the help!


I'm sorry about your contract, Jon. :( Good luck finding something you love.

WOW, that external link to the List of Fatal Attacks by Decade makes me feel several conflicting emotions at the same time ( :( :o :shock: :? :x :cry: :roll: :!: :?: )

That explains the signature: "12 foot lizard". I never knew that the term alligator was an anglicized version of the Spanish "el lagarto" (the lizard).
Oh great, now I gotta look up the etymology of "crocodile" :idea:

Huh! There was a link to a BBC News story from 2000 stating that someone had wondered why crocodiles' wounds don't seem to get infected, which led to an investigation and discovery of a novel anti-microbial peptide (a string of amino acids) that seemed to kill virulent bacteria. I gotta follow up on this stuff.

Oh yeah, the etymology, from two greek words - one for "pebble" and the other for "circumcised man or worm". :lol:

That is actually a quote from the b.com user known as Giant Communist Robot. I just thought it was awesome, so I used it.

If search by date worked, you could actually find the post in which he wrote it.

Since Palladio is post 1975, I don't have to be embarrassed. By chance, I do have it on tape. I like it. It's good imitation Vivaldi.
