Since it seems pretty quiet on the ol'BBB on weekends, I thought it would be fun to have a board about nothing in general.

Did anyone see the production of Verdi's Il Trovatore on Discovery HD Theater Friday night?

Did anyone watch the ARCA Crashfest 200/68lap/65lap race at Daytona? What a mess.

This is a threadjack proof thread.

PSIP,
Its a great idea.
***naf beat you to it, about 50 pages ago.
I think the thread (it used to be "this is the thread") is currently titled '*ignaf's ego thread' or some such.

So what...it's very American to generate competition...What are you offering here that makes your thread superior to *ig's PSIP?

hal9000. B4I. Be on the look out for the dreaded thread monster. He was last seen sniffing out this new thread. This monster must not be taken lightly. Despite the intense net we at the B4I have laid to trap this deadly creature, he has been able to persistently elude us. We think he does this by taking up residence in newly form threads, where he preys on posts indiscriminately. We believe that this monster is solely responsible for the recent wave of disappearing posts. If you sight this creature, leave the area immediately and contact the local B4I field office at once.

That is all.

No licensing fees, no services charges or sir taxes. ASCAP, BMI and MPPA safe zone.
I am afraid I was unaware that something similar had already been done, just consider it a John Williams plagiarism err... I mean score.
If the other thread is active, I would be happy to let this die.
Just wanted it to be a place to post anything you wanted and have fun.

A very sad note. This happend last weekend, I just heard about it today. I use to listen to Karl on WJR back in the 60's
<img src="http://www.radiohof.org/cards/karlhaas.jpg" alt=" - " />

Condolences to family and friends of syndicated classical host Karl Hass, who died this past Sunday at William Beaumont Hospital in the Detroit suburb of Royal Oak. Mr. Haas, 91, a radio personality who for more than half a century shared his love of classical music with listeners around the world, Mr. Haas's syndicated program, "Adventures in Good Music," for many years attracted the largest audience of any classical music radio program in the world and was carried by hundreds of stations in the United States, Canada, Australia, Mexico and Panama and on Armed Forces Radio.

More info

Karl was also inducted into the Radio Hall of Fame in 1997

I could hear Haas on the radio in Los Angeles. There were a few radio hosts on KFAC that I was pretty sure were double my age (35-40 at the time). I know nobody lasts forever, but it's always sad when you lose someone you feel you grew up with.

I remember Haas and the feeling I'd get from listening to him that he 'knew it all' in the best sense of that phrase. He had a stentorian voice and his knowledge seemed encyclopedic.

I think he was so successful that he became a model for many who weren't quite up to the standard and we got the reaction of classical music 'without the attitude'. When I first heard that phrase on Beethoven I thought of Haas, moreso of his imitators....

What's that, the annual Idaho jackrabbit drive? I know what to do with them critters -

1/2 cup vegetable oil
2 rabbits, rinsed and cut into 8 pieces each
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
2 cups chopped yellow onions
1 cup chopped celery
1/2 cup chopped green bell peppers
1 1/2 cups chopped tomatoes
2 green onions, chopped (green and white parts separated)
4 garlic cloves, minced
1 tablespoon tomato paste
4 cups chicken stock or broth, plus more if necessary
1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme leaves
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley leaves
Cooked white rice, for serving

In a large, heavy pot or Dutch oven heat the oil over medium-high heat. Season the rabbit pieces and, working in batches if necessary, cook until browned on all sides, about 10 minutes. Transfer the rabbit to a plate lined with paper towels and reduce the heat to medium. Add the flour to the oil in the pot and whisk to combine. Cook, stirring constantly, until the roux is a golden brown color, about 10 minutes. Add the onions, celery, bell pepper, tomatoes, white parts of the green onions and the garlic and cook until vegetables are soft, about 10 minutes. Stir in the tomato paste and chicken stock and bring to a boil. Return the rabbit to the pot and return to a boil. Add the thyme and salt, reduce heat to a simmer, and cook, uncovered, until the rabbit is very tender, about 2 hours, adding more broth or water, if necessary, if the sauce gets too thick.
When the rabbit is tender and you are ready to serve the stew, add the green parts of the green onions and parsley and cook for 5 minutes. Serve the rabbit with the gravy over hot white rice.
