Cat Shoots Owner
Mar 10, 7:55 AM (ET)

BATES TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - A man cooking in his kitchen was shot after one of his cats knocked his 9mm handgun onto the floor, discharging the weapon, Michigan State Police said.

Joseph Stanton, 29, of Bates Township in Iron County, was shot in his lower torso around 6 p.m. Tuesday, the state police post in Iron River reported. He was transported to Iron County Community Hospital.

Michelle Sand, a spokeswoman at the Iron River hospital, said Stanton was treated there before being transferred to Marquette General Hospital for further treatment. But Marcie Miller, a representative of the Marquette facility, said there was no record of the hospital receiving a patient by that name.

A telephone message seeking comment was left Wednesday at Stanton's home.

State police said he was cooking at his stove when the cat knocked the loaded gun off the kitchen counter behind him.

Hi Mary,

I think a couple of us checked out the non-singers for bleeding ears after we finished - it was pretty loud.

:D

Operas I 've been in:

1997 - Turandot
1998 - Romeo and Juliet(Gounod)
1999 - Falstaff, Un ballo in maschera
2000 - Il Trovatore, Lohengrin, La Boheme
2001 - Aida
2003 - Fidelio, Norma(almost)
2004 - Turandot(again), Don Carlo
2005 - Simon Boccanegra

Norma was down to the final week before opening when I had the wreck, so even though I had rehearsed it, had my costumes measured, and had been blocked in, I never got to perform it. I was also scheduled to be in Otello that year, but had to cancel out of it as well.

I've managed to miss out on Mozart so far. I'd really like to be in one of his operas.

As for the cat, I guess that means we all need to put our pets through firearm safety training now......

:roll:

Oh yes, we do. One other that is being repeated this year is La Bohéme. I'm not in it, but we are going to see it. Ricky(Richard) Leech is the tenor - not one of my favorites.

PS. Please note my first successful use of charmap.exe(now that I have a version of Shutters that actually has it)!

Break the proverbial leg!

Post your time slot, and we'll all gather round the board, as virtual cheerleaders, and chant for you. GO! GO! PLAY! PLAY!

the kid's band had a practice shirt, the picture on the back was a teenager with a big soda cup and a straw, with the diagonally slashed circle overprinted across him. There was a "Rule #1" above the kid with the soda.

Translates to "Rule #1: Don't Suck" :D

Here is a musical question:

Is Rondo Capricioso Opus 129, "Rage for a Lost Penny" a genuine LvB work, or is it a compilation or reconstruction by someone else?

BR played it a couple of nights ago, and I wondered what on earth it was. Mr. Sincere (presumably) told me.

Next day I asked my private pianist, who said she'd never heard of it. Her book of LvB's piano solos only goes up to Op.121. She asked her teacher, who had heard of it but didn't have the music. He made no comment on its authenticity.

This site contains a recital of the piece.

In my research on the web, I found a discussion on a bulletin board in which a poster said Op.129 was a fake. He said it had been cobbled together from bits & pieces of other LvB works. Unfortunately he listed other examples of the process which were simply wrong, notably "Turandot" and Mozart's "Requiem", both of which were not "reconstructed" but were simply completed by others from the composers' material which had already been written for those works.

I am surprised that I had not heard of this work before BR played it. The name is one that sticks in the mind, and I'm sure I would remember it.

it's a posthumous publication, but I always thought it was authentic. maybe there are some thoughts that Anton Schindler touched it up.

I've never heard that it was either a reconstruction or a posthumous publication. I was always of the impression that everything up to Opus 135 (with some minor exceptions) was published during LvB's lifetime. I believe it was written in the late 1790's but not published until right before he died. Big, please correct me if that's a wrong impression.
