That paper clip is responsible for a lot of broken monitors, I think. How about LVB's 7th, for repetition? (2nd movement, right?)

Oh, and Shos, the Artmobile was at my school yesterday! Our little piddly high school art club raised the moolah to sponsor it. The kids, from what I can tell, really loved it.

I like that a lot better than him giving me "helpful hints" and changing my spelling and grammar to what he thinks I meant. He's cute marching around with a whole lot of clones. Play Bolero again! :mrgreen:


Selma....you are TOO funny :rofl: All I ever think of is "10", which was hilarious...too bad that Dudley Moore is no longer with us.

As to "repetitive" music, I have always felt that way about the Passacaglia. While the piece does intertwine many variations, the basic 8 bar theme kinda grinds on you after a while. :crazy: (Gee, does that make Bach an "organ grinder"?)

I second that. Dudley Moore was an accomplished musician and a talented comedian. "Arthur" is one of my all-time favorite movies.

Yeah, I know, I've posted it before, but it kind of fit here, given the earlier discussion.

Here's yet another paper clip I came across just a few days ago...

Today, it was a trio of Geico geckos, sweetly dressed in tulle and chiffon. The wind came up, the chiffon blew and the tulle drifted and tattered, and at the end of Bolero, the geckos abandoned the stage in a litter of teeny fabric scraps and shreds.

Oddly, the tulle tutus are more attractive after they've been altered into grass hula skirt configuration. At least on lizards.

On CBC Radio 2, a classical music station I listen to on my drive to work, they have a weekly contest called the "Cage Match", where they play two similarly themed works, and then you get to vote on which of the two you prefer.

Well, I just looked at the results of previous "cage matches", and there was one called an "elimination cage match", where you could eliminate a work from the CBC Radio 2 playlist until a certain time (until June in this case).

The two works in the elimination cage match were Pachelbel's Canon, and Ravel's Bolero. Bolero lost, and is eliminated from the playlist 'till June! :crazy: :owned:

I wonder if we could have a contest such as this, where you get to choose between 2 works, (via a poll perhaps?), in this case, between 2 chamber works, and the winning chamber work gets to be played in it's entirety on B.com.? 8)

That would be apt, but limited, IMO. I chose 'chamber' as an alternative to 'cage'. :)

Ok, I wasn't sure what you meant. Yes, it would just be named "Chamber match", but it could be a choice between 2 symphonies, concertos, operas, sonatas, etc.

I'm more in favor of voting for a work that would be aired on B.com, not voting for a work to be eliminated from the playlist, which b.com would never agree to do anyhow.
