Snakes, huh? Do the Well Digger and Bottom figure into the scenario anywhere?

Today the flutes and clarinets and oboes have turned into snakes and are slithering around in ellipsoidal essssoteric formations. Sticking out their reeds and taunting the leaves.

(Jamie, I do this on nothing better than coffee and Excedrin. Perhaps it's a reaction to the continued thrill of editing maintenance manuals...)

Oh, and now the trumpets are sitting around in the trees, knocking the leaves off the branches and sneering at the snakereeds.


:rofl: :rofl: :rofl: You made my day Selma...I am tuned in too...2:30PM PDT 11/21/06. You should work for Disney (or Pixar)

Not so you'd notice. Nicola Bottom has just been rehumanized and she's walking off into town looking for the rest of the cast. Don't know what the Well Digger's doing.

Black, White, and Pink shaded Siamese pussycats, twining about each other and the aquarium. Paws sneaking out to tweak tails, circling, circling, sly eyes peeping sideways. Aloof little noses poking, and always circling, twining, and twirling.

Poor fish. Getting dizzy.

First time I've heard Bolero for quite a while, and I'm enjoying it. The visuals today are dancing clarinets. No tutus, but they've got ballet slippers.

Violins have joined the clarinets. It's a rather stately square dance now.

One slipper each? Or do they have legs?

Those little hole-stop key thingies. They make perfectly lovely little legs, with little round feet.

Loosen up, suspend disbelief, and enjoy the show. :grin:

No. Way. I get spontaneous movies on the inside of my forehead and I enjoy the heck out of 'em. Writing them up in an orderly and submissible fashion would turn a joy into a chore. :deal: It'd be like accepting a commissioned quilt order - where's the fun in that?

As you can see, I have a deep and definite aversion to organizing my hobbies. Or hallucinations. :crazy: I just hope my disorderly sharing of the show helps some of the more linear types achieve a little happy lunacy. It's like that classic saying about not needing to be crazy to work here, but it helps.

I may have to buy the DVDs, though. I may have to buy enough to give away. Dtr#2 has this birthday, end of February and she's the horn player that was in Drum Corps. :hmmm:

If I had to choose between Bolero or Stairway to Heaven I'd rather hear Bolero followed by the Revenge Aria then some nails on a blackboard than hear Stairway.

Is it over yet.... :yuk: ?

Bolero had cartoon characters today. I was visited by Dtr#1 and grandson this weekend, as Mikey had a costume requirement for his role as Lost Boy this week, and Disney's "Monsters Inc" was therefore shown when we thought Mike ought to quiet down and try for a nap. Russell, the 8-legged chameleon, made a reappearance (with reflections and clones) in the Bolero dance today.

I think he was looking for Boo's door.

I'll say this - I'd rather hear Bolero everyday and anyday in lieu of "Classical Rock" segments, such as Radiohead, Metallica, Pink Floyd and Led Zeppelin.

I have alot of Pink Floyd CD's, and if I want to listen to "Time", I'll go and grab my copy of "Dark Side of the Moon" in the old dusty storage locker.

Bolero is only fun if it comes with Bo.


I didn't say it. :D

You've heard the joke "What's Beethoven doing today?....DEcomposing."

This just came to mind.
"What's Ravel doing today?...unRAVELling."
